Good evening everyone…and how was your Wednesday? Mine has been a little bit of a challenge, as we have been having more rain and higher humidity levels, which seems to make a good concoction for pain. After getting some things done this morning, I decided to take an afternoon break and put the feet up. After sitting for a while, I was barely able to walk…but praise God…He became my strength; so now I’m moving around a little better.
Tonight, as I’ve been sitting here…listening to some inspiring music, while talking with God; He led me to several Bible verses in Psalm 44:5-7…and we read… “Through thee will we push down our enemies: through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us. 6) For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save me.
7) But thou hast saved us from our enemies, and hast put them to shame that hated us.”
You know…when I have difficult days, like I’m having today with my health, I can’t help but wonder, as to what Satan is up to. No matter what he attempts to do, as a means of bringing me down, I have truly found that I can push right through it…that is, if I am allowing God to do the pushing; for I have learned to not trust in my own ways…only God’s.
I wonder how many times we suffer needlessly…all because we are the ones trying to make a situation better. One thing I haven’t quite come to understand; is why do we cry out for God’s help…but yet go back and attempt to make it work on our own? Don’t we realize that the reason we turned to God for help in the first place; is because we could no longer handle the situation on our own?
The thing I continue to learn more and more in my life; is how much I truly need Jesus…no matter what . I remember times in the past, when I would do, just as I previously said…go to Jesus for help…and then I’d either go back to the wallowing hole, where I would lose touch with my faith…or I would just get tired of waiting and try to make it work on my own. The only thing about that; is I felt even more drained, than before I went to Jesus for help.
No matter what you may be walking through right now, just know that you can’t “trust in your own bow” to save you; but rather, you need Jesus to save you…and believe me when I say…He does know how to do that…we just need to be willing to let Him do it His way.
Today may have been a little rougher day for me…but one thing I know for sure…I wouldn’t be writing you tonight…if first, it wasn’t for the strength and sustaining power, of a loving and caring God. I love you Jesus…you truly are my best friend and companion for life!!
Well…time for some dinner…and then some more rest. I truly hope and pray that your night will be filled, with the peaceful and loving presence of Jesus! You know what…He loves you so much; so quit trying to take care of yourself…and let Him do it for you. See ya soon!
Goodnight & God bless!!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
