“I will remember the works of the Lord: surely I will remember thy wonders of old. 12 I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings. 13 Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God? 14 Thou art the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy strength among the people. 15 Thou hast with thine arm redeemed thy people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah.” Psalm 77:11-15
Hello everyone! Happy Sunday and welcome today, to Sunday Inspiration…thru the Risen Hope Ministries! I pray that you’re enjoying your day and that you will truly find God to be everything and always in your life!
You know…when we look back over 1000 years, we see a God who has never changed, since that moment in time. His strength hasn’t weakened and His ways have never wavered…and most of all He’s still the God, who was not only in our yesterdays; but is also in our todays.
How is it that we forget the moments, when God did something very special within our lives? To me, it’s just as though we received a gift and after time, the emotion that once came with the gift began to slowly leave, until the feelings that we once felt for that gift became a thing of the past.
Don’t we realize that we need to keep these special moments alive within us; so when we are once more backed up to a wall of despair; then we will be able to reminisce on moments that can once more fill our minds and hearts with hope? I have come to see within my own life; that when we are able to look back to the times, when God rescued us from a situation that had at one time seemed impossible to be freed from; then we will begin to see that the same God, who brought us through that overwhelming moment, can now do the same, for what we may be facing today.
One thing I know for sure; is that we all need hope during these troubled times and how are we ever going to find hope, when we find ourselves following after the problem? When we choose to follow after our problems, by the way we think and respond to the problem, we are only going to find that we are being led astray to further problems. Today, we need to know how we can find the hope that we can hold to…a hope that can lead us further away from the problem and closer to God.
I truly believe that Satan’s way of keeping us connected to our problems; is by getting us to focus deeply, on each symptom of the problem. As we begin to see each symptom of the problem unfold before our very eyes; he works to overwhelm us and bury our thoughts with the problem, until we grow discouraged and can’t find a way out, which can cause us to give up completely.
No matter what you are facing today; look for a time in your life, when God was definitely there. Focus on all He did for you and once you find yourself caught up in these moments…I truly believe that a ray of hope will begin to enter your heart once more.
You see…sometimes, we just need to see our problem in a different light and give our thoughts a chance to see that there is a way out…and that way out is through Jesus Christ. When we begin to focus on all that God has done for us in the past; then we will begin to believe that He can once more do all things, thru these present moments of despair.
Blessings on you Sunday!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
