Hello everyone! Welcome so much…to Moments Spent with God…through the Risen Hope Ministries! I am so glad you stopped by today and my prayer is that you will truly experience a sustaining love; that only comes from a sustaining…loving and compassionate God!
It’s so nice to be back with you today! This has been kind of a tough week for me health wise…so I took a little time off yesterday to slow down and relax. For me…the battles have always been before me because I believe that Satan does not like what I’m doing for God…but that’s too bad because I will continue to serve my God…even in the midst of pain…tiredness or while experiencing other problems.
You know…yesterday morning I got up and was still feeling rough and it seemed to take everything I had within me, to just get online and spend some time with God and my readers…through quotes and other little writings.
When I first came online, I could barely get into my morning music…that I usually enjoy every day… because of how I was still feeling. I sat on my daybed in the office and starred out the window for a while and as I sat there…God began to work with my spirit and in the midst of all that was going on…I began to get an attitude towards Satan, for what he had afflicted me with. I thought to myself…two can play at this game and from there; I began to write quotes for Twitter that would backfire in Satan’s face…to let him know that he wasn’t going to win this battle. As I sought God for each word…the words began to flow and within a short time, I began to feel alive again.
One thing I can say for sure; is that out of everything I have learned in my life…I’ve learned to never remain in the muck and mire of a problem because this seems to be a place, where Satan continues the affliction and controls us like a puppet on a string.
You know…I truly believe that the greatest test of our faith doesn’t stem from the moments, when everything is going well; but rather, I believe that the greatest test of our faith comes, while walking through the deepest…darkest valleys of circumstance. How are we ever going to know how far our faith can take us, if we never allow it to be put to the test? One thing I know…is that God has worked so much within my life; in ways that I never thought He could and that was because I was willing to keep testing the waters with Him…through a faith that could keep me standing…even though all my strength was gone.
I know in my heart that Satan works even more…with the one who longs to remain committed to God…along with those who have chosen to serve God and reach out to many in despair…like myself…and because of that kind of faith…the storms can become fierce…to the place, where we wonder if we will survive these kinds of storms; but when we allow God’s powerful presence to join us and work with us; then we will soon find; that we can truly do all things through a God of great power and strength.
No matter what you’re facing…keep going…never give up and always know that God is there to help you through the fiercest storm!
Blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
