Hello everyone! It’s so good to have you back with me today, on Moments Spent with God! I pray that as we spend some quiet moments alone with God today; that we will truly come to see Him, for who He really is…a strong, loving and very powerful God!
Isn’t it amazing how we can have moments with God, where we feel His presence so close…that is until a circumstance hits us head on. These moments definitely have a way of attempting to separate us from the powerful presence, of a God we need so much, during difficult times such as these.
One thing I have come to see; is that the best way that we can reconnect with God, during the difficult times; is to lay everything that hurts us to the side…to focus on who God really is and the power that is contained within Himself. When we can take the time to do this; then we soon find that are thoughts aren’t so tightly focused on the problem and also, the problem doesn’t seem so overpowering, as what it first was.
When I’m facing some difficult moments within my own life, I like to sit on my daybed in the office and stare out the window and see where God takes my thoughts. Many times, I find myself focusing on nature and as I see the wind blowing or the clouds moving swiftly across the sky; these things become a reminder to me that God definitely has control over every living thing.
We need to realize that when we become so tightly focused on what is wrong; then we begin to believe the thoughts that Satan is attempting to embed within our minds, which only opens a door for him to step in and make the situation worse.
These past few days, I have been experiencing quite a bit of pain in my legs and feet and a couple days ago, I really wasn’t feeling like writing; but I decided to spend this time with God and while I was writing, I noticed that the pain had completely disappeared.
You know…one thing I am constantly reminded of; and that is that our minds can only focus on one thing at a time. This is just the way God created us to be. Anyways…I believe that when our thoughts are truly focused on God and God alone; then the moments that are attempting to take us down, will become weakened.
How is it that we find it so easy to focus on everything that is wrong, when there is a God that is much more powerful; then the weak circumstances that attempt to make themselves seem more powerful than anything…including God? Don’t we realize that when we focus deeply on our problems; that these moments only separate us from the love…comfort and true help that we need; to overcome these trying times in our lives?
No matter what you may be facing today…focus on God and allow Him to become more powerful than the problems that have entered your life. When we truly come to see God, for who He really is; then we will come to see our problems through His eyes…problems that are nothing to a powerful God!
Blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
