Hello everyone…and a “Happy Thursday” to you all! I truly hope and pray that you are having a nice day…and that you will ALWAYS experience the presence of God, above every problem you may face in your life…Amen!!
This afternoon, as I’ve been sitting here in my office, I have been reminded that even though bad times may come…God is ALWAYS faithful. I think the problem we face; is that we find ourselves continually overwhelmed by what is going on around us…to the place where we stop looking for the things that could remind us of God’s faithfulness; the things that could give us a lifeline of hope to hold to.
Today, I would like to share a very special Bible verse with you; that has truly helped me over the years and it’s found in 2 Timothy 2:13, which reads…“If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.”
I will never in my life forget the moment, when I was going through a very hard time in my life…one that brought me down to nothing. Yes…I had been through multiple knee surgeries and the loss of many things; but this moment made it even more difficult to believe that there would ever be a way of escape for me. As I sat in a room to myself, I just stared at the floor and thought to myself…how are you ever going to overcome these moments that are now standing before you. I would say that within a short time… the spirit of God began to work with my heart, as if to say that He was making a promise to me; that He would bring me out of what seemed so impossible to overcome at the time. As I got up from where I was sitting…I wanted to believe and take hold of that piece of hope that He was offering me; but somehow, the thoughts of what I was facing at the time seemed to be overpowering. Even though I didn’t quite believe in what God was conveying to me at the time…He did keep His word…and He was more than faithful to me. As I think back to these moments in my life, I know one thing… “That which He promises to do; that will He do!!”
As we face these very overwhelming moments with the pandemic; it’s so easy to get caught up in the virus and what it is doing; that we soon find ourselves getting up each morning with no hope…and why is that? Because we haven’t searched hard enough, to take hold of the faithfulness that God gives to us each day. I know that when I’m in a lot of pain, it can be so easy to not see anything but the pain; but when I begin to see how God is caring for me thru the pain; I soon see that His faithfulness is there and that His sustaining love does surround me.
Maybe it’s time for us to start sifting through the things that take place in our day; that we may pick out the moments, when the hand of God was truly there with us. I’m sure that once we do this; that we will come to see that even though God hasn’t healed our land; that He is there…suspending us above a pit that could take us to destruction.
Don’t we realize that this powerful God we serve can allow His will to be accomplished, while keeping His own children safe and secure? I think that it’s time for us to stop imagining the worse and begin looking for God’s faithfulness thru the worst…for when we choose to do so; that is when we will see the sunlight of His faithfulness…shining brightly in the midst of the storm.
Have a great day in the Lord…and God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
