God loves you and want to give you peace like a river. Trust him friends!
1 Samuel 17:37 The Lord who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine.”
Life is in seasons friends! Whatever season you are presently in, remember the Lord your God and worship Him. He who was there in the season of scarcity, is in the midst of your plenty. He was in the midst of war, shielding and protecting and is still there in the midst of peace, stroking the back of your neck. This God is the Most High God, that rules in the affairs of men. He is ever faithful, only constant, always on time.
You see, while David was taking care of the Fathers herds, lions and bears came to steal,kill and destroy, but the Lord delivered him. There was no trophy, there was no applause but he knew for sure that if it had not been for the Lord, he would have been forgotten. Facing Goliath was not so scary after all. This was standing for the Most High God who had delivered him in the wilderness. How can he standby and this awesome God is defied by an uncircumcised Philistines? That was too much for David to take in, He did not volunteer because of the reward but to silence and end the reproach and ridicule thrown upon the armies of the Most High God.
What is that situation in your life causing you shame, reproach and is ridiculing you – your maker? What situation is defying the grace of God upon your life? Friends and family have called your faith in Jesus Christ into question, slandered your faith in God – why hasn’t he shown up for you? Foes have requested evidence of your faith. Where is your God?- echoes all around you.
Too many questions you cannot answer, and many unanswered questions of your own. But, but, you know deep down within you that God loves you and is working out something wonderful for you. You know all things will work out for your good. You know without a shadow of doubt- God is working it out for you, he’s working it out for you.
Be assured that God is indeed working it out for you. Stop listening to the skeptic, turn a deaf ear to jeers, keep calm, God is working it out for you. He that made sure you did not fall into that ditch, the trap set by Satan himself will not let you be overwhelmed by that situation. God kept you alive, think of the near misses and you will realize there is a higher and greater purpose for your life. God is working it out for you.
This situation will pass, the storm will not sweep you off, Christ Jesus is in the midst of the storm, holding you, He is your anchor, hold on friends. Christ had done this before, remember that situation few years back, or was it months, probably weeks, yes that situation He maneuver you out of? He is the same yesterday, today and forever! He will show up for you and glad you will be!
Put your trust in the Lord friends for He cares for you. Shalom
