Hello everyone! I am so glad that you were able to stop by and spend some time with me, on Moments Spent with God! My prayer today, is that we all will truly come to see God, as a powerful God…a God, whose love alone can lift us up and above the moments of despair!
One thing I am so thankful for in my life; is that God is always there to pick up the broken pieces in my day! Yesterday, I was finishing some publishing work, on a brand new book and before I started my work, I spent some quiet moments alone with God and not only asked for His help; but I also asked God to bless this book and use it in a way that would truly bring honor and glory to His name.
After spending some quiet moments alone with God, I began to go to work on the book and from there; I began to face every battle that could have come my way at the moment. What seemed to be a simple task, had now become a long drawn out event, which made me feel a little overwhelmed. As I sat there quietly, I asked for God’s help and within a short time; I began to see the pieces that seemed scattered all around me…coming back together…only this time even better.
I don’t know about you; but I can always tell when God is at work within my life; because the things that seem so easy to me…become difficult and I’ve even seen where my health can be greatly affected, during these times.
These battles we face, weren’t meant for us to give up and quit, which is just what Satan is striving to do; but rather, they are being used by God to strengthen us…equip us as Christians and help us to lean on Him more and more, rather than ourselves.
You know…our thoughts can attempt to convince us that life would be a lot easier, if we would just quit now, rather than linger on through the problem; but from what I’ve been through in my life…this just isn’t true. One thing I can say for sure…if I would have never fought the battles I went through with God; then I definitely wouldn’t be sitting here today…sharing these thoughts with you. These battles I walked through with God, have now taught me to keep fighting…pursue and to never give up and that’s where we should be in this life with God.
When I look back on my life, I can definitely see the changes that have taken place and these changes didn’t happen because I’m any better than anyone else; but rather, it’s because I walked through pits of despair and through those dark and lonely moments, I learned to lean on a God that could give me a strength that was stronger than my own. Once I learned to take hold of God and His powerful strength; I found that I could overcome anything through Him.
We might as well realize that giving into the battles we face, are only going to make life more difficult, while keeping us weak and vulnerable to evil…because you see, once Satan sees that we are a prey of weakness; that is when he will continue to bring more and more problems into our lives. The only way we are going to be able to overcome these battles; is to fight them and overcome them, through God’s strength and mighty power. Today…let’s allow God’s strength to become a mighty weapon, to bring evil to its knees, while fighting the difficult battles of life!
Blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
