Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Tuesday to you all! I pray that your day is going well…and that you will know without a doubt; that God is ALWAYS there for you…no matter what you may face in life…Amen!!
After a rough night of pain and little sleep…I took some time to just sit in the living room and relax this morning. As I began to visit with Keith…I was saying to him that if it wasn’t for God’s hand upon me…holding me up during these difficult times; then I would surely fall to nothing.
As I look back on my life…I remember many times, when I felt as if I wasn’t making it…and that was only because I was listening to the voice of circumstance and what it was attempting to convey to me. Later, as I began to truly see God for who He really is, I also began to see how I was making it through life, even though it wasn’t always easy…and that was only because of a God, whose strength and power became strong hands for me…hands that could keep me lifted above the moments that were attempting to bring me down to nothing.
This morning, as I’ve been relaxing and listening to some music; God began to lead me to a Bible verse in Isaiah 41:10, which reads… “Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”
At a time when we fear defeat…and at a time when we feel the most discouraged; we need to remember that our God isn’t a defeated God; but rather, He is a God that longs to be there for us…to strengthen us and help us through these moments of weakness. Just think…there is a God who is much greater than our circumstances…One who is victorious in all His ways…and One who can keep us upright, when Satan is attempting to bring us down.
You know…I think that if we could start anew and see our circumstances in a different light…one that helps us to see that we are still moving forward in life, even though it may not always be easy; then instead of falling prey to what the circumstance is attempting to do to us; we will truly come to see that God is there…lifting us up and keeping us above defeat, which can truly bring about a heart of hope.
One thing I can tell you for sure; is that I am only here with you today because of a strong God, whose strength and power is lifting me up…and even as I sit here…reflecting on these words that God has given us today; I feel hope rising up within me…a hope that is definitely conveying to me that I can continue to press on.
Like I’ve said many times…life isn’t always going to be easy…and there may be times when these circumstances we face, will become so overwhelming that we begin to feel as if we can’t make it anymore; but today, God would like to give you a piece of hope to hold to, from His heart to yours…and that is to remind you that He will always be with you…and when your strength seems to fail you…it will be His strength that kicks into overdrive and lifts you above the pit of defeat…so don’t give up. Instead of focusing on where your circumstance may be leading you…focus on a God who is greater than your circumstance…One whose strength and power will continue to keep you standing, even in the midst of despair.
Have a very blessed day in the Lord…and I will see ya soon! God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
