Hello everyone...and a very "Happy Thursday" to you! I hope that your day is going well...and that you will truly feel the loving presence of God, above everything in your day!
It's a another beautiful day here! Just think...the page of our yesterday has now been turned...and even though a blank page stands before us...God will truly fill it with His very best, as we walk through this day with Him...that is, if we are looking for it to happen that way...Amen!
You know...there can be times, when we wonder why we suffer as Christians. In other words...aren't we suppose to be free from these moments of affliction, when we are one of God's children?
One thing I have truly come to see within my own life; is that even though God may allow these moments into our lives...He does have a plan and purpose for it all...and in the end, we are not only freed from these moments; but we grow another inch spiritually...and these moments truly do give us strength and wisdom, for other difficult times that may come our way.
Another thing...don't you think that the opposition, which is Satan; is going to try to remove us from the presence of God? Remember one thing...Satan isn't out to attack his own; but rather, the ones who are truly committed to Christ. In fact, it's his aim in life, to remove us completely from the presence of God...and how does he do that...by bringing us low, through the moments of affliction; but I have come to see that when we can bring these moments into the light of God's presence; then it does expose the scheme that Satan had once planned to achieve this...and from there; he ends up being the one that is brought low...so don't let these moments abuse you; but rather, allow God to use them...in a way that will strengthen you and draw you even closer to His presence...which will also allow Satan to see that his ways hold no power in your life.
As you continue to walk through this day...I pray that God will give you the strength to remain focused on Him; that there won't even be a crack within the heart, for Satan to come in and take control.
Have a great Thursday...take care and I will hope to see you again this evening!
Many blessings on your night!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
