Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Thursday to you all! What a great day the Lord hath made! No matter what I face in life…I have found that there is always something to praise God for. In fact, as I’ve been sitting here this morning; God has handed me a piece of hope…directly from His heart to mine, which I am very thankful for today…and here are the words that truly blessed my heart… “We were the reason why Jesus had to die…but through the great love He had for us; He was willing to die at any cost, for us sinners. Now stop and think on this for a minute…if He was willing to do that, while giving up His complete self for us; then why wouldn’t He be willing to meet the needs in our lives…needs that will never compare, to the greatest need He died for…the need of forgiveness.”
As I’ve been sitting here this morning…thinking on all that God has placed upon my heart; I feel Him leading me back to a couple of Bible verses in Romans 8:31-32, which says… “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? 32) He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?”
I don’t know about you…but when I’m in the midst of pain; my mind only seems to be saying to me… “You’re in pain.” Everything else seems to be blocked out…and I can even forget that God is there, due to the severity of the pain…but I praise God this morning, for the little reminders that take me beyond the pain…to show me that He is there for me…and to me that is a sustaining love…praise Him!!
This morning, as I continued to focus on the words He blessed my heart with, I began to truly have my eyes opened once more, to the thought that if Christ already gave up everything and died for the greatest need of my life, which is forgiveness; then why should I ever feel that the needs in my life right now, would ever be too complicated for Him? What hope…in knowing that the One who loved us at the cross; still goes beyond everything, to love and care for us. Just think…there is nothing that can take us beyond…what Christ has already done for us. Even though pain and deep heartache can attempt to have control…it can never win out… “…for God did not spare His own Son; but delivered him up for us all…how shall he not with him freely give us all things?”
One thing I can say today; is that no matter how difficult life has been for me; God’s love has always prevailed, in such a loving and caring way. We don’t always understand the moments that He allows…but one thing I know from experience; is that He can make these difficult times easier. Recently, I have experienced very overwhelming pain…but I’ve also experienced the hand of God upon me…helping and sustaining me through it all; otherwise…I know one thing for sure; I wouldn’t have anything to write on.
I think that what we need to do more of; is to cry out to God for help…and not take Him for granted. Just because His word says that He will never leave us or forsake us; doesn’t mean that He doesn’t want us to stop leaning on ourselves and lean on Him instead.
This morning…I thank God, for the way He is sustaining me…through words such as these! No matter what I face…He is there and without His loving words…through it all; I would have no words to write…praise Him!
Well…time to see what God is up to next in my life! I truly hope and pray that your day will be filled with the sunshine of God’s presence…and that your eyes will also be opened to the thought…that Christ’s love never stopped at the cross; but rather, it continues on…no matter what we face…Amen!!
Have a great day and I will hope to see you soon!
Many…many blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
