In a world where we could get caught up in the continual onslaught of negativity, it is good to know that we can go to the word of God and find our peace. We don’t always have the answers in certain situations, but we do have a God who is the answer to every situation. it’s time to get in his presence and find out what he desires for us.
My heart is full tonight with so much stuff, that it’s hard to sort through everything. but I’ll try. You are the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, and in all of your majesty, you still loved me enough to die for my sins. You chose me before the foundations of the world were made, even though you knew the many mistakes that I would make as I grew in you. You saw something in me that I’m still trying to figure out, and even though I struggle to reach my potential in you, at times, you have confidence in me.
It is beyond my comprehension how you can still love me, after I have failed so many times. Is it that you see me through the blood of Jesus Christ, and my sins have been forgiven and are no longer remembered by you? Yes, I am thankful. My soul can be fully restored and your promise in Psalm 23 is to lead me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Before I was saved, I went my own way and usually it led to sorrow, but now, I have a new path to take that leads to joy unspeakable and full of glory.
It’s time to pause and remember that God is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient. He is in control and not fretful when circumstances cause us to lose our focus on the plans that he has for us. He can take what seems like the worst situations and change them for our good. He is God. As Psalms 23 says later, he will prepare us a table in the presence of our enemies. God will not be intimidated by evil, and neither should we. The bible tells us to “Resist the devil and he will flee.” that is simple to say, but if we don’t understand that the devil doesn’t have power over us, then, it is harder to carry out.
“Greater is he that is in me, than he that is in the world.”
