Hello everyone...and a very happy Monday to you all! It's so good to be back with you today...and my prayer; is that we will allow the presence of God to walk close beside us...throughout each moment of this day...that we may truly come to experience a power that is greater than any other thing in this world!
This morning, as I was preparing to come and share my heart with you...I was talking with someone on the phone, who has been a little discouraged...mainly about the unknown moments that lie ahead of him. After encouraging him, I began to read the Bible verse that God has given us all for today, which is found in Lamentations 3:25...and I began to think on how many times, we can find ourselves in unknown moments; that haven't even been brought into existence. In fact...I wonder how many times do we worry about moments that haven't been created yet by God...only to find out later; that what we were worrying about never even happened...which to me is a form of needless suffering.
In my own life, I have come to see that this journey I'm on, hasn't come to me all at once...and why? Because God longs for me to learn along the way. So many times, we just want everything to happen all at once, so these moments of uncertainty can leave our minds; but I have come to see numerous times; that God wants souls that will wait on Him and seek Him along the way. In this way...we come to trust God, for each step we take.
Maybe you too are facing a lot of what seems to be uncertain moments. Maybe you are afraid of what could happen, in the days that lie ahead of you. May I encourage you to remain in the step of today, until God has walked you into the step of tomorrow. In this way, you will come to trust Him, for each step or day you walk into, which will allow the thoughts of uncertainty to be left behind; so you can truly lean on a God, who will never leave you or forsake you.
In one of my Bibles, I have a quote that goes like this... "Safety isn't found in the absence of danger; but rather, safety is found in the presence of God." In other words...we can't find safety, hope and peace...just because the problem isn't there anymore...but we CAN find safety, hope and peace...just knowing that God is standing with us...in the midst of the problem. Let's face it...we can't avoid the uncertain moments of life...but I KNOW a God who will be with us during these times...and once we are willing to walk one day at a time with Him, while waiting on Him and seeking Him...for what lies ahead; then He will ALWAYS be there, to walk us through anything we might face in this life...Amen!!
As you continue to walk through this brand new day, I pray that you will stay in sync with God and live...for just the moments you have stepped into; that you may always experience God's very best, as you journey with Him!
Have a great Monday...take care and I will hope to be with you this evening!
Many...many blessings on your day!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
