Good Morning....... LOOK! It's Friday!!! The week is winding down. We can breathe easier, for the Creator of ALL THINGS, is ON OUR SIDE!!! If that doesn't bring us comfort, nothing will.
What kind of storms are you facing? The wind is high, the waves are crashing, and you find yourself in the middle of it all! But TAKE HEART............. God is bigger than them all. In fact, God is bigger than ANYTHING we face. The first lie of the enemy is, "Where are You, God?!" That feeling of abandonment SCREAMS in our ears, and resonates in our hearts.
Sometimes, do you wonder what is of God, and what is not? The answer is plain and simple! GOD'S WORD!!! If it does NOT line up with the Word, it is NOT of God. And NO, God is not a hypocrite! That is a lie satan uses to allow ourselves to keep on sinning! We cannot believe some parts of the Bible, and some not! DO NOT BE DECEIVED!!!
God's Word is not only Truth, but Light and Life! The Word promises Hope! Will we suffer in this world? YES, we will........ But, will we be alone? NOT A CHANCE! What is our greatest weapon against the enemy? THE WORD OF GOD! And you better believe, satan knows it! He doesn't care if we read our Bibles, but he does everything in his puny power to keep us from LIVING IT!
He is terrified by the Power of Jesus! He cringes at the Name of Jesus! He runs at the sight and sound of the Blood of Jesus! He has already been DEFEATED by them ALL!!! Yet, he still tries to steal our Joy and Peace. We compromise our Faith, a little here, a little there. DON'T GIVE satan AN OPEN DOOR to our heart! The world is desperate, and we look for anything to hold on to!
If we stand for nothing, we will fall for ANYTHING! Standing on the Word of God is POWER!!! Will it always be easy? Nope. But I assure you, it will be WORTH IT........ 2 Corinthians 4:17 tells us, "For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all."
I sometimes don't understand God's Ways! But, because He is for me, and because He will never leave me, and because His Ways are PERFECT, I find rest in Trusting Him, NO MATTER WHAT! When the storm is crashing, when the mountain towers over us, and when we are devastated by our circumstances, if we are on the Side of God, we will RISE IN VICTORY!!!
Whose side are you on today? We have to choose daily. It's either the worlds side, or God's side! Death or Life? Darkness or Light? Turmoil or Peace? Chaos or Rest? Letting YOU decide or letting GOD decide? Fear or Faith? The clamoring noise of this world, or God's Whisper? Fighting your own battles, or letting God fight for you? Trying to find your worth in people's opinions of you, or believing what God says about you? Living in guilt and shame, or by God's Grace and Forgiveness??? Oh Beloved, stop running and REST! Stop striving and BE STILL! Let God rid you of your shackles, and WALK IN FREEDOM!!!
