Good Morning my friends,
God is the Creator of the universe and is with you and for you. We couldn’t ask for anything more!!. When you feel that you’re lacking in some form or another, it’s because you aren’t connecting with God at a deep level. God offers us all an abundant Life and your part is to trust Him and to refuse to worry about anything. It’s not so much the adverse events in your life that makes you anxious but instead your thoughts about those events. Your mind engages in efforts to take control of the situations in which you find yourself so that you can perhaps achieve the results that you desire. Your thoughts close in on the problem like ravenous wolves. You’re determined to make things go your way, you tend to forget that God is in charge of your life. The only remedy is to switch your focus from the problem to His Presence. Stop your striving and watch to see what He can & will do. HE IS LORD!!!
“But as for me, I watch in hope for the Lord, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me.” (Micah 7:7)
When things happen in our lives like natural disasters, evil acts, sickness of a family member, or even a death of a family member, questions about God tend to surface in our mind and when questions surface…doubt usually follows.. There have been times in my life when I’ve questioned God but I don’t recall ever doubting. I have learned that despite the horrible things that take place here on Earth that God is in control, has ALWAYS been in control and will ALWAYS be in control.. With that said, although God’s in control, He doesn’t make bad things happen.. He allows them to happen..
Man had every opportunity to live a life of perfection but instead made the decision that they would rather have knowledge & wisdom instead of a life of perfection. We must all remember that the same God that allowed the heinous acts like the Holocaust & September 11th also allowed numerous lives to be lost by things like tornados & hurricanes. He’s the same God that allows millions of babies to be aborted every year. We must remember like in all tragedies that our God is the same God whom did not spare his own Son, but instead gave him up for us ALL.. He gave His Son so that we might ALL have the opportunity for a perfect eternity. God has given us the opportunity for perfection by giving us Perfection in His Son Jesus.. He then allowed our perfect Gift to die on the cross for all our sins.. My friends my heart mourns every time I hear about a tragedies in this world or when read about a death in a friends life. My heart sympathizes for those that are constantly going through trials & tribulations. I pray daily for those that are in this world and are lost but I give thanks to the Lord for He is Good, His Love endures FOREVER.
“What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?” (Romans 8:31-32)
MY CHALLENGE PRAYER for YOU.. Don’t get lost on the fixation of your problems but instead focus your attention on Him and He will bring you comfort..
I hope you have a GREAT day… Blessing & much love…D
Live YOUR life like it’s your LAST 24!!!
