Good Morning my friends,
God wants to take care of you. He wants you to feel the warmth and security of being enveloped in His loving Presence. Every detail of your life is under His control. Everything you do fits into a pattern for good. Those who love & follow God are called according to His design and purpose.
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28)
The world is in an abnormal place. In its fallen condition, people tend to believe that chance governs the universe. Events may seem to occur randomly, with little or no meaning. When you view the world this way you overlook one basic fact which is the limitations of human understanding. What you know of the world that is only the tip of the iceberg.
“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”(1 Peter 5:7)
Under the visible surface of the world are mysteries too vast for you to comprehend. If you could only see how close God is to you and how He’s constantly working on your behalf, you would never again doubt that He is caring for you. This is why you must live by faith, not by sight; trusting in God’s mysterious, majestic Presence.
“For we live by faith, not by sight.” (2 Corinthians 5:7)
Life is not always easy, nor fair… It often requires you to get uncomfortable. Society has programmed us to measure ourselves according to its standards… High School students are measured by their class ranking. College students by their GPA.. Professionally by the title under your name. Personally by the size of your house, the car you drive, or the money in your bank account. One of the things Keri & I have tried to instill in our boys is to not let society measure their success. Success is not about winning or losing. It’s not determined by your GPA or your class ranking. Success is about never giving up. It’s about getting up after every time you get knocked down. It’s about your heart.. Your heart determines your character. The people that do the things they don’t want to do the most, are the people that win in life.
“For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required.” (Luke 12:48)
Satan will never fight you for where you are, he will fight you for where you’re going. God is ultimately in control of our lives when it comes to life, blessings & death. He gives us free will to make our own decisions. I believe God is constantly rewriting the ending to our lives based on our decisions. The day & time that we breath our final breath has already been written in stone but how we end will be determined by our decisions.
“Then Job replied to the Lord : “I know that you can do all things; no purpose of yours can be thwarted. You asked, ‘Who is this that obscures my plans without knowledge?’ Surely I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know.” (Job 42:1-3)
My CHALLENGE prayer for you. Make the right decisions and allow God to write your life as if it were a fairytale.
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL day… Blessings & much love….D
Live your life like its your LAST 24!!
