“He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.””
Psalm 46:10 NIV http://bible.com/111/psa.46.10.niv
Life falling apart? Feel as if you can’t catch a break? At loose ends at home at work and at play? Your ministry is not prospering? Your prayers have dried up? Your health appears to be failing? All these things are part of the natural order of things. Nothing good lasts forever right? Well nothing bad does either. God said there is a time for everything and this is that time for you.
You are probably wondering what in the world am I talking about? I’m talking about that time where you get to prove what it is you say that you believe. That time where you have to let the Word that is inside of you be manifested in your life.
“Lord, those who know your name come to you for protection. And when they come, you do not leave them without help.”Psalms 9:10 ERV
“Give all your worries to him, because he cares for you. Control yourselves and be careful! The devil is your enemy, and he goes around like a roaring lion looking for someone to attack and eat. Refuse to follow the devil. Stand strong in your faith. You know that your brothers and sisters all over the world are having the same sufferings that you have. Yes, you will suffer for a short time. But after that, God will make everything right. He will make you strong. He will support you and keep you from falling. He is the God who gives all grace. He chose you to share in his glory in Christ. That glory will continue forever.”1 Peter 5:7-10 ERV
I posted Gods Word to emphasize that you chose to follow Him and to give your life to Jesus, now watch them work. Trust the process, trust that he is working things out for you. Trust that you don’t have to worry about what you eat or drink or wear. Trust that he is with you. Trust that he knows the plans he has for you to give you a future. Trust that he is God and cannot lie. No matter what it looks like, Trust him. I know it sounds easy but I know it’s hard. I know what it feels like to be hopeless, but I know he can restore your hope. I know what it feels like to be defeated but I know he can turn that around. I know what it feels like to be scared and depressed, but I know he can keep you safe and make you whole. Now I need you to know, and the only way that can happen is if you Trust that our God is Bigger than any problem you face. Trust that he will make a way for you. Trust that he is intentional in his will for you.. sing with me oooo O ooh , oooooO oooh oh oh oooO. All things are working for my good, he’s intentional, all things are working for my good…oooooO ooh..
“So if you’re serious about living this new resurrection life with Christ, act like it. Pursue the things over which Christ presides. Don’t shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ—that’s where the action is. See things from his perspective.
Your old life is dead. Your new life, which is your real life—even though invisible to spectators—is with Christ in God. He is your life. When Christ (your real life, remember) shows up again on this earth, you’ll show up, too—the real you, the glorious you. Meanwhile, be content with obscurity, like Christ.”
Colossians 3:1-4 MSG
