Bible Verse for the Day | Hebrews 13:8
"Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to-day, and forever."
Hello everyone! It's so good to be with you again today! I sure hope that your Friday is going well! Today, I am just so thankful, for a God who never changes…One who remains the same caring God for us, every single day! Just think, if God wasn't who He really is; then there would only be fear and dread to live with…so praise God for that hope that He has given us all!
The other night, as I was spending some time alone with God, I began to talk to Him and thank Him for seeing me through a busy day. As I continued to share my heart with Him, I began to see that if God had brought me through that day; then He could definitely do the same in my tomorrow.
How is it that we can have a good ending to our day and see how God has brought us through so much…only to forget all of that and go back and sit in dread of another new day? I guess that there can be days, when the struggles are so real; that we get totally drained…to the place where these feelings attempt to convince us that the next day will be the same.
I think that what amazes me the most; is how we get sidetracked from the blessing; of surviving moments that we could have never come through on our own. When I think of this…I know the culprit behind it all, which is Satan; because he doesn't want us to experience God's goodness…and even have the faith to know that God could bless us with another good day.
Recently, I was talking with someone on the phone, and as I asked them how their day went; they replied… "I had a good day…and now I'm preparing myself for another day." You know…maybe this is what we all should do at the end of the day. Maybe we would find this to be of help, rather than just sitting to ourselves…thinking on a day that hasn't even arrived. Also, while preparing our minds and hearts for another new day, maybe we should take the time to focus on a God who never changes…a God who is the same as He was in our yesterday. If we could take the time to do this each night; then I'm sure that we would find ourselves focusing even more on God's faithfulness, rather than what may have gone wrong, which would help us to see our tomorrow in a better way.
Last night, as I was finishing some ministry work, I was thinking on how I still had a couple of days left in my week, to accomplish even more before the weekend was to begin. Between the fatigue…and not always feeling well, along with a list of things that needed to be done, I started to feel a little bit overwhelmed…and before I realized it, I began to feel as if I just might not be able to get it all finished.
As I sat down in the office and took a deep breath, I began to see that I had not only allowed the situation to overwhelm me; but to also take my thoughts away from a God who had already brought me through that day…a God who would have no problem bringing me through the next two days. From there, I came to see that I was so deep in thought at the time, with all that was taking place around me; that I had actually allowed myself to be drawn into the tiredness…and all the feelings that I had already experienced in that day.
What I am wanting to convey to you right now; is that when we choose to judge our tomorrow by our today; then we lose touch, with one of the greatest pieces of hope that we could ever take hold of…and that is a God who never changes…and is always faithful…no matter what we may face. I don't know about you; but I want to experience something that can keep me moving forward in life…something that can reassure me that every day will be just fine…and to me…that is knowing that if my God was able to bring me through one day…no matter how difficult it may have been; then He can certainly bring me through my tomorrow.
As we close, I pray that we will all be able to let go of the feelings that are attempting to sidetrack us in life…and truly come to the understanding; that Jesus doesn't change from yesterday…to today…and even into tomorrow; for He's always totally Himself.
Well…it's been another great week of visits…and I thank God for every word of encouragement that He has blessed our hearts with throughout this week. Now, I pray that we will enjoy the weekend…knowing that Jesus will always be the same for us each day! Take care…and I'll be looking forward to another great God inspired visit with you on Monday morning! May God truly bless your heart!
It's Always & Only Because of Him…
