I could focus on the trials of the past few weeks but I choose to focus on the goodness of God. He promised me that no weapon formed against me would prosper and I still believe it to be true. As we wait on the Lord to bring us through to the other side of this situation, we could get to a place where we feel that the Lord has forgotten about us: that isn’t true. He loves us. In due time he will get us through to the other side of this pandemic, and my question to you, today, is how will your life be different?
I am so thankful that I have a God who with his angels watches over me; I have a God who puts my enemies beneath my feet; I have a God for when I’m sick or when I’m feeling well; I have a God, I have a God, and my God can not fail.
In every circumstance; God is with us. All we must do is keep walking with him. He is leading us through the landmines, but we must trust him to know the path that we must take. So many people depend on science, or the media, or the politicians, to get us through this, but thank you, while I may listen to their views about the best direction to take, I’d rather take it to the Lord in prayer before I take the next step. It is time to shut out all of the voices that would try to sow seeds of doubt, and gloom and doom, and listen to the voice of the Lord.
I truly like his plan better. He tells us in Jeremiah 29:11-13,
11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.
13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
His plan is the best plan for my life. The Lord will take care of me. I trust God, so there is no room for fear to overtake me. In all that I have had to go through in my life, God has never failed me. Be blessed.
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus Christ, my righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.
When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.
His oath, His covenant, His blood,
Support me in the whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.
When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh, may I then in Him be found;
In Him, my righteousness, alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.
We can put our trust in him. In this week’s Lattereign we are encouraged to Bring forth fruit that remains. (This link opens in a new window)
