We all have a place in the Bible that we go to when we are feeling down and out, When we cannot figure it out at a certain moment in our lives. Sometimes it's in the moments of brokenness and in the feeling of grieving within our spirits that pulls us closer to God! I know that God doesn't push difficulties in our path but when difficulties come our way he does allow us to go through tough times in moments of our lives so that we may grow closer to him! I like to think of this stage as the "molding process" It's something that we all go through in life But it's only there to teach us and shape us into the strong person that we need to become!
We are going to go to the place in the Bible that I go to when I'm broken, confused, lonely, or sad.
I think this is most people's go to book of the Bible! It's Psalms! Let's Read (Psalms 31:22)
"Love the Lord, All you his saints! The Lord preserves the faithful but abundantly repays the one who acts in pride. Be strong, and let your Heart take courage, All you who wait for the Lord!"
WOW! That verse is amazing to me! What a powerful Revelation when we are Cast Down to build ourselves up! This Verse reminds us that as long as we continue to put our trust in God HE WILL GET US THROUGH IT! We can also see from reading this verse that we don't even have to worry about evil-doers because he's going to take care of us and supply our every need if we remain faithful to him!
You see, We have nothing to Fear because he gives us the courage to face difficult times!
He even restores our Joy! I love what it says in (Psalms 32:10-11) "Many are the sorrows of the wicked, But steadfast Love surrounds the one who trusts in the Lord. Be glad in the Lord, And rejoice, O righteous, And Shout for Joy, all you upright in Heart!"
Amen! You see, He's going to take care of us, and give us the courage to go through difficult times in our lives But he's going to restore us of our Joy too!! What do we have to Fear? Nothing! Who should we be afraid of? No one! He is faithful to us and gives us favor because we are His Children and we choose to serve him!
Encourage yourselves this day and Read God's word and Declare that Promise into your spirit!
You're going to make it through this and you're going to come out better and stronger than ever before because God's got something waiting for you on the other side of that Mountain!
God shows Favor to the Faithful ones! So get up and take that promise in your hands and Say "This is mine! because God said it is mine!"
