Well, it’s day number 7 of 2018 – how’s it going? My new year is fantastic! I went in for my final appointment with the surgeon – and I got cut loose! I’m officially mobile and getting into trouble again on a regular basis. It’s great to be up and going again!
God wants us to know that no matter what circumstances we face, He will be by our side, take our hand and guide us through it. There are no endings while we rely on the Lord to lead us down the pathway. There are only endings when we decide to let go of His hand and give up.
10-11 This is God’s Word on the subject: “As soon as Babylon’s seventy years are up and not a day before, I’ll show up and take care of you as I promised and bring you back home. I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for. – Jeremiah 29:10-11
Have faith in God – you know He has come through in the past – so of course, He will make a way now. He didn’t bring you this far to leave you alone! I love the part of this Scripture that says, “I’ll SHOW UP and TAKE CARE OF YOU AS I PROMISED AND BRING YOU BACK HOME.” I also love the reminder that He knows what He’s doing! I sure do need to be reminded of that once in a while.
I love this poem by Lucinda Berry Hill:
Our God keeps every promise He makes to us. We know our joy is not dependent on our circumstances – but it hinges on our faith in the One who is worthy! Thou art worthy, oh Lord!
Don’t let the enemy of your soul steal your joy because you’re focused on circumstances instead of keeping your spiritual eyes open with your physical eyes studying God’s precious Word. It’s through His Word and the time we spend with Him in prayer that keeps us filled with His joy, hope, peace and love. Trust your relationship with Jesus, and the sovereignty of God.
Isn’t she wonderful and encouraging? I hope and pray we all have a wonderful 2018, and that the sovereign God that we put our trust in no matter what – will bless us beyond measure in our lives. 🙂
