Good evening everyone...and how was your Wednesday? I truly hope it was a good one! Today, has been another day of writing for me. In fact...last night, I stayed up until almost 12:30...writing and spending time with God...and what a great time it was! Just as I was finishing...to lay my head on the pillow and rest...it seemed that my time with God wasn't finished, as more words came to my thoughts...that just had to be written down...before going to sleep.
You know...when we truly have a heart to heart relationship with God; that connection really does help, during a time of need...because when we feel as if the deep waters of circumstance are about to overtake us...we have someone to connect to...One, whose power will keep us lifted high and above these moments that can seem disastrous.
I remember a time in my life, when I truly felt as though my circumstances had thrown me into a troubled sea. As the wind and waves roared around me, I began to feel as if I was going to go down beneath these troubled waters for good...but as you can see...that never happened.
These moments that can become overwhelming to us...as if a tall wave is about to come down and smack us in the face, can truly convince us that we will be defeated in the end; but I have come to truly see that when we walk through the deep waters of despair...God is there with us; and when we walk through the fire of oppression...God is there; and when we are about to be consumed by these moments...God is there...and will never allow us to drown or be burned.
The thing I think that we struggle with; is believing more in the problems that stand before us, rather than the God who is much greater than these problems. Just think what life would be like, if we were to become connected into the awesome power of this great and wondrous God...just like we do, when we find ourselves caught up within every detail of a weak problem. If we would only choose to reverse our thoughts and allow ourselves to become more deeply connected to God, during these difficult times; then instead of feeling as if we are going to drown; I truly believe that we would find ourselves reaching up to God, with a hope that would truly take us high above these difficult times.
No matter what you may be facing right now, may I encourage you to get your focus on God and don't allow yourself to be caught up within the storm. Remember Peter? When he focused on Jesus; he was able to walk on the water...but once he took his eyes away from Jesus and focused on the stormy sea; that is when he began to sink.
Let's face it...we all are going to walk through the deep waters of despair and the fiery moments of oppression; but that doesn't mean that it has the power to overtake us...so don't feed into a power that is only displaying itself as something greater than God, when really it's only a weak circumstance.
Tonight...as we close this day together, I pray that we will allow God to step in and remove the thoughts that are attempting to convince us of defeat; that we may truly experience a power that far outweighs any so-called power of circumstance!
May you truly find peace in your night...and even more; may you experience the loving presence of God throughout your night! Take care...sleep well...and I will look forward to another visit with you tomorrow!
Many...many blessings on your night!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
