Some take life ''as it comes''. ''Roll with the punches''..so to speak. Are we fully trusting in Him to see us through??
Psalms 73:26 My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever.
Psalms 40:4 Blessed is the man that maketh the Lord his trust.
only JESUS can satisfy and help us through our ups and downs of life. they will come. and sometimes when we least expect them to. Trusting in Him makes all the difference in the world. in HIS TIME, will come the new car, (sigh...). new furniture.. all the material things don't matter...
Psalms 9 :10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou,
Lord, has not forsaken them that seek thee.
sometimes, we need to do a ''reality check'' on our own lives. we have to reshape, rethink, and rededicate.
''reshape''.. take out the old, and go for the new. remove those things that stop us from fully trusting in Him. confess our faults..EVERYBODY has them.. I know I have plenty.. have true JOY in your life.
O - OTHERS
Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righttousness; and ALL these things shall be added unto you.
''rethink''..- what can I do for HIM?? He has done so much for me?? give Him time, talents, job.?? Prioritize.. and think about what really matters. Jesus, IS ALL THAT MATTERS.
'' rededicate''.. give it all to Him. seek HIM in all you do, and do what you can for GOD.
There will be no excuses in HEAVEN.
He is with us always, and it is so good to know we can trust Him. He never fails. Trust in Him for even the little things that come our way.
Exodus 33 :14 And he said,''My presence shall go with thee , and I will give thee rest.''
i needed this today.. this was just part of what I studied today in devotion. I need to trust Him more, even for the small things.
'' Turn your eyes upon JESUS, look full in His wonderful face. And the ''things'' of earth, will grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace.'' AMEN.
