Hello everyone! Happy Monday and welcome today, to Moments Spent with God…through the Risen Hope Ministries! I pray that your week is off to a good start and that you will truly experience the powerful and loving presence of God in your life, while you are here today!
Have you ever felt like God placed you on a path that just keeps going and going…a path, where you just can’t seem to see any end in sight…a path where you wonder what will come about through the uncertain moments that lie ahead of you? Lately, I have experienced moments like these; but two things God keeps reminding me of; is that He will always complete what He has begun and that He already knows how each situation in our life will come to an end…and this is not the time to worry; but rather, to place our complete trust in Him.
You know…being on a long and winding path with God can make us feel as if we have been traveling for a long time. We keep looking ahead, to see if we are reaching the end of this difficult path; but all we seem to see are more curves in the road and tight spaces to pass through. This path that God has us on can also seem as if we are walking around narrow cliffs, where we wonder if we will ever survive what is ahead of us.
One thing I’m learning more and more; is that we should not focus on the uncertain or unknown moments that lie ahead of us because when we go this route in our thinking; then Satan will be there, to fill in the blanks…as to what may lie ahead of us, which only upsets us and causes us to detach ourselves from the faith we need, to keep pressing on.
I truly believe that there are times, when God allows us to journey in this way with Him because He is not only testing our faith; but because He is also helping us to lean on Him, for whatever may lie ahead, in these unknown moments. All we need to remember today; is that God already sees the end in sight and we have to believe that His plan isn’t to destroy us or make life even more difficult; but rather, His plan is to bring about better things in our lives. If we could just focus on thoughts such as these and know in our hearts; that God will allow these difficult moments to bring about something better in our lives; then in this alone, we will find the strength to pursue what He has ahead of us.
You know…rather than dreading the uncertain moments that lie ahead of you…why not anticipate where the path may be leading you. One thing I know for sure; is that God always blesses the end of a difficult path with His best because for one reason alone…He cannot be a defeated God.
No matter what you’re facing today and no matter how difficult and narrow the path may seem…lean on God and let Him pull you through these difficult times in your life and as He walks you around the narrow cliffs and over each obstacle in your path; just know that He is leading you to something better. One thing I have truly come to see; is that a difficult path is definitely a sign that you’re headed in the right direction with God; because these difficulties are set up by Satan, to keep you from experiencing God’s best…so keep moving on and trust God…and in His perfect timing; He will lead you to the very best He has for you!
Blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
