As I sit here in my office today…I am praising God, for all He continually brings me through. These past few days, I have been going through some high blood pressure, due to all the pain my body has been recently going through. One thing I know…these moments aren’t brought on by God; but rather, I have come to see them as a set up by Satan…to keep me from writing and sharing God’s words of hope and encouragement…especially during times such as these; but as you can see…I have overcome and I give all the credit to Jesus Christ…the best friend I could ever have!
You know, we need to realize…especially during times like these; that we need Jesus as our Savior…especially during times when evil attempts to raise havoc over us.
The other day, while spending some time with Jesus…He shared some very special thoughts, from His heart to mine. He reminded me that every trial we face actually becomes a step that will either lead us forward in life or backwards, into further moments of trouble and despair. Continually, I have come to see that God’s grace is the cure or remedy that helps us to overcome all the difficult steps we face, as we travel down the narrow path of life…and as we overcome each of them…with His help; we find that we have walked one step closer to heaven…and one step away from the obstacles that once attempted to make life so difficult.
Lately, as I have been sitting back and taking a good look at where this world is headed; I praise God with all my heart that I know Him…and that He is always there for me…no matter what I face. There used to be a time in my life, when I didn’t feel this way; but I have come to see how He never gives up on His own; but instead, He fights each battle for us…that is, if we are willing to let go and let Him do so.
You know…life may not always seem fair…and we may suffer with pain and deep heartache; but walking the path alone…or trying to figure it all out on our own is not the answer. I praise God today that I have left that way of life behind…to reach up to a God, who can be strength for my weaknesses and the answer to every question I face.
You know…so many times people try to handle the hurts of this life on their own; but where do those steps lead a person? I have come to see through life’s experiences that they don’t lead a person anywhere, except for into more of Satan’s territory…a place where life only gets worse, rather than better.
No matter what you are facing today…and no matter what has hurt you in life or even at this present time; may I encourage you to turn to the One who holds every answer and remedy to your need…One who will work on your behalf and take control of the one (Satan), who has attempted to twist your life into moments of deep despair.
One thing I’d like to say as we close…from my heart to yours; is that I have truly come to see that there is a remedy to every hurt and moment of suffering we face…and His name is Jesus Christ. Let Him be the replacement, for what you may be too weak or unable to do on your own…and I know that with time, you will truly come to see and experience the One that I have come to know and love so much…through the most difficult times of my life…the One I call, Jesus! Amen!!
Have a great day everyone…and I pray many blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
