Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Saturday to you all! What a great day the Lord hath made…we shall rejoice and be glad in it…no matter what…praise Him!
Well…I hope your weekend is off to a good start! Mine started on a good foot, by getting a full night of sleep…one that I have not experienced, in quite some time…and I praise God for that today!
As I was getting around this morning, I was thinking on all that God has done for me, especially since Thanksgiving. As I was thinking back on some good times…a thought came into my head that said… “What about tomorrow…and the days that still lie before you.” I think we all know where that thought came from…and it wasn’t from me.
Anyways…as I came into the office; God began to speak to my heart…and this was His response, to what Satan had to say this morning… “God provides, as we take each step with Him. We lose hope, when our thoughts race ahead of His ways.” Wow…what a word from God this morning! What He’s trying to say through these thoughts and words; is that He will ALWAYS be there, to meet every need…but not in advance…only as we take each step with Him. In other words…we should never allow our thoughts to jump ahead of His ways; because for one thing…we will quickly find ourselves lost in a world of our own; where we will definitely meet up with worry, doubt and fear…and why…because when we think ahead of God; then we are also out of sync with God.
I am learning more and more; that I must always be in tune with God, to experience all He longs to do within my life. When we allow our imaginations to get ahead of what He longs to do; then Satan will be there, to fill in the blanks…which will only cause us to suffer needlessly.
In Ephesians 3:20, we read… “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,” The key words in this verse are, “…according to the power that works in us,” which means that God will be able to provide in any way we need Him to; but it has to be according to how He is working within our lives at the time. When we are in sync with God; then there will be no imaginary thoughts…and there won’t be any reason to fear what we are experiencing at the time…because we will be right beside Him, as He walks us through all the unknown moments that may lie ahead of us; ready to provide for us, as He sees fit along the way.
One thing I’ve been reminded of this morning; is to praise God, for all He has done…and allow those blessed moments to become hope along the way, as we walk in His footsteps. We must remember that when we get ahead of God; that is when the already darkened pathway, will only seem darker.
Today, I praise God…for the times that He has stood on His promises to me and has walked me out of despair. These moments will continue to be the hope I cling to, as I walk hand in hand with Him…AMEN!!
Well…time to begin my day. I truly hope and pray that your Saturday will be a very special day…truly filled with the loving and peaceful presence of God! Take care and I will see you soon!
Many…many blessings on this brand new day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
