Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Friday to you all! I truly hope and pray that your day is off to a good start…and even more, I pray that we will not allow anything to deceive us and lead down a path of no hope; but rather, I pray that we will come to truly see God, as someone who is much more powerful than these moments we face…Amen!!
Last night, as I was talking with God before bed…I laid down on the daybed in my office and just stared out the window, to a beautiful snowy evening…and as I lay there; God began to show me something through that time with Him…and these are the words that He placed upon my heart… “Oh how we weigh out the circumstance and allow that circumstance to become more powerful than the weight that is contained within a powerful God. In other words…we make the circumstance more powerful in our lives because we let it tell us a convincing story, as to where these trying times could lead us…and from there, we allow it to deceive us into thinking that nothing could ever change these moments…only bring about defeat.” What a great reminder that God has placed upon our hearts today…and it’s so true; because we seem to have a way of seeing our circumstances, as something so powerful and sometimes even more powerful than God…and why…because we are more in tune with the story of what is taking place around us, rather than focusing on the greatest power that lives within us.
As I was looking through some Bible verses this morning; God led me to a verse in 2 Corinthians 13:5, which reads… “Examine yourselves to see if your faith is genuine. Test yourselves. Surely you know that Jesus Christ is among you; if not, you have failed the test of genuine faith.”
You know…it’s so easy to weigh out every part of a problem, until that problem is seen as something more powerful than God. For example, if I was to say to myself today; you have pain in your foot…the left knee is bad…you’re exhausted…and your blood pressure has been up; then I would think that Satan would begin to create a story for me to view…one that would overwhelm me…and one that would probably leave a strong God behind, to dwell on a story that’s relaying a message of no hope to me.
One thing that God is longing for us to take hold of today; is that it’s time to change our view on these discouraging moments and let our faith walk us way beyond what could end up leading us to further moments of hopelessness and despair…moments that could make it seem almost impossible to overcome.
No matter what you may be facing today…and no matter how many things seem to be surrounding you at the time; may I encourage you to not let it overwhelm you, while allowing Satan to create a story of hopelessness for you; but instead, may I encourage you to place it all on a scale next to a powerful God…and I’m sure that if you do this; then you will truly come to see that God’s power far outweighs the so-called power of these circumstances in your life.
As we close, I pray that God will give us a new insight on what is taking place around us; that we may be given a better and brighter view on life…one that can lift us up and take us away from the thoughts and feelings of hopelessness and despair…Amen!!
Many blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
