“Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? (8) If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. (9) If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; (10) Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me. (11) If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me. (12) Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.” Psalm 139:7-12
Hello everyone! Welcome today, to Sunday Inspiration! I am so glad that you stopped by and my prayer today; is that we will truly discover a piece of hope to hold too…hope that will help us to rise above any difficult moment!
You know…I was wondering today…how is it that we experience moments, when we feel as if God doesn’t know or understand what is going on in our lives? Have we forgotten that He is an all knowing God…the One who made you and me? Here we sit and think that God could never understand what we are going through, when He was the One who allowed these moments into our lives. In fact, He’s the One who knew all about these moments…even before He put them into action. Don’t we realize that nothing can enter our lives, without God knowing first?
What a comfort to know…that God knows everything that concerns us and He even knows not only what will enter our lives; but He also knows how the story will end, when these difficult moments have moved on.
Did you know that God’s way of taking care of us; is to know what to allow or not allow within our lives? The things that we don’t fully understand; are fully understood by God and when we can see God as someone, who has everything planned perfectly; rather than believing the words of defeat that cross our minds; then we will be able to settle back and experience His peace, even through the most difficult times.
You know…God knows more about us; then what we think at times. Even when He allows a painful moment to enter our lives; He plans a way that will produce what He longs to produce through the trial, while making a way for us to experience His presence and peace…that is, if we are looking for that.
I remember many times in my life, when I felt as though God didn’t understand what I was going through and there were even times, when I felt as though He had walked away; but now, as I look back, I can see many instances, where His presence was there, in the midst of my storm. His footprints were left behind, through thoughts and songs that seemed more like words, from His heart to mine.
Maybe if we would quit thinking that God doesn’t see and understand our needs and begin to look for His presence, in the midst of what He has allowed within our lives; then just maybe, we would be able to live with peace…knowing that God has truly got everything under control within our lives.
Blessings on your Sunday!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
