Hello everyone! Welcome today, to Moments Spent with God! I am so happy to have you here today and I pray that your week is off to a great start! My prayer for all of us; is that we will truly allow the presence of God to walk with us through each moment of this week; that we may experience His best…even through the moments that seem to be the very worst!
As I’ve been sitting here…thinking on what God would have me to share with you today; I began to think on how easy it is to speak words with no action. How easy we find it to say words like… “I’m going to trust God”… “God is going to see me through”… “I can make it with God”…etc… but yet we find later; that these words have only become weak crutches to lean on, rather than allowing these words to be power and strength, for the weak moments we walk through.
I have found throughout my own life; that when we lean on words with no action; then these words only become powerless, which keeps us from standing strong and pressing on. I remember many times in my past, when I was determined to come through a weak moment…only to walk back to a wallowing hole of despair; where I found it so easy to give into the problem. The reason why this happened; is because I used my words to convince me that it could happen, rather than allowing those words to truly work on my behalf. You know…sometimes, I think we speak these words and then we sit and wait for God to drop a bomb on our head…thinking He will do the work for us. I’m not saying that we shouldn’t pray for strength or for God to walk us out of these problems; but one thing I have truly come to see in my life; is that God is waiting to see, if we will put our words, thoughts and desires into action.
One thing I have experienced in my life; is a God that can do all things. Nothing can get in His way and He can do the impossible, just by speaking one word; but the thing I think we need to remember; is that God longs for us to meet Him at the place of despair. The moment, when we experience His power, through words that spring forth wings of action; these become the moments when God truly shows us that we can do all things…through Him and with Him.
In the past, I’ve read about authors, who speak on how a book can take a person on a journey, to places that they never thought they would ever experience in life. I just wonder where our words would take us, if we were willing to let them come alive, through just one form of action. I truly believe that the moment, when we not only speak words; but follow through with a form of action…that this would become a time in our lives, when God would lift us above despair and take us to places in life that we never thought we’d ever experience.
One thing I know for sure…through my own past of pain and heartache; is that we never get anywhere with God, when we only speak words. Today, we need some form of action that can jumpstart our words; so they can take us to the place that God longs for us to be…a place, where we can leave despair behind, to discover God’s very best for our lives.
Blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
