I have come to see that the moments of the past, have now become an anchor to hold tightly to, while facing other difficult storms in my life. When we can look back and see how God stepped into a moment that seemed to be filled with no hope; to straighten a path that at one time had been mangled by adversity; then these become the moments that bring hope back into our lives, while we are waiting for God to finish working on the needs we have at this present time.
In Psalm 27:13, we read… “I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.” One thing I have truly come to see…through all I have walked through in this life; is that God will continue to work in our lives…just as He did at other times and this is one thing that helps me…reflecting on God’s faithfulness.
I also believe that when we choose to walk in God’s footsteps and remain in sync with Him, while letting Him lead us into whatever He desires for the moment…rather than attempting to make everything work on our own; then we will begin to see how God can work in ways that we never had expected. We must remember that the God we serve isn’t a god that works once in a while but He’s a God that continually works for our good, even though we may not fully understand His reasoning at the time.
No matter what you are facing today and no matter how long the trial has lasted; just know that God is there…working in the background, to give you His best. Take a moment right now and reflect on a time in your life, when God stepped into a difficult situation and freed you for good and these thoughts and feelings will help you to see that God can once more step in again and relieve you, from whatever you may be facing at this time. Also… remember one more thing…when we allow God to do His work…in His time; then we will once more come to see that God has not forgotten us but He’s been at work…working to fix what has been broken in our lives.
