Hello everyone! Welcome to Moments Spent with God! I am so happy to have you here today and I pray that God would walk into these moments and give us words that will help to keep us all uplifted, while facing the storms of time.
You know…there can be times, when we find ourselves running to God…only when life becomes overwhelming and out of control; but I’m learning more and more that we definitely need God to be with us…every hour, of every day.
Yesterday was one of those days, where Satan seemed to be stepping in and doing everything he could possibly think of, to bring havoc into my day. The brightness of a new day was now fading away, as a dark cloud began to hang over my head. It seemed as though I found myself talking with God even more, as I asked Him to step in and crush the forces of evil that were coming against me.
After finally surviving a day that seemed so out of control, I began to think quietly to myself, on how much we truly need God in our day. It’s so easy to get preoccupied with other things; that before we know it, we begin to realize that we had barely even shared one moment with God. I have found that the moments when I spend time with God, keep me connected deeply with Him, in a way that surrounds me with peace, even while facing these difficult moments.
I remember a time in my life, when I wouldn’t even turn to God during the difficult times; but rather, I would allow myself to just suffer needlessly alone. It seemed like when the bad news came my way, I just found it easier to fall prey to these moments, rather than opening myself up to God. When are we going to realize how much we need God in our lives? Is it going to take long drawn out days of needless suffering and pain, before we humble ourselves before a loving and power God?
One thing that I have learned through time; is that we should never take God for granted. Let’s face it…we not only need Him, while facing the overwhelming moments in a day but we also need Him, to guard our life, from the fiery darts that Satan is attempting to aim in our direction…and most of all, we need Him to walk us through the day and how are we ever going to know which way to go, if we aren’t connected with Him first.
Today, we need to step into the presence of One, whose power can free us, from the difficult battles we face in a day. We need someone, who will hold us close and become the best friend we could ever have and most of all…we just need Jesus, for every second…minute and hour, of every day.
No matter what you may be facing today, just know that there is a God, who is waiting for you to talk with Him…a God, who longs to love you and hold you close and listen to your every need.
Blessings on your day…
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
