I truly am no one without my Jesus. There’s nothing right in my life that I can’t point to and say Jesus brought it to me. Even those bad times because I’ve learned so much through those about myself and about Him and what a mighty, faithful God He is.
I’m just here, no one special. Just someone trying to tell everyone about a Savior named Jesus who saved me and can save you, too.
It’s been a while since you’ve heard from me, but I’m still studying. Still learning. Still sitting at the Lord’s feet. There have been additions to our family through adoption and childbirth that have me just flat out drunk in love. I’ll share more, later, because I can hardly wait to tell you how God brought these stories together. Amazing.
For now, for this post, I just want you to concentrate in this time when fear is so easy to lean toward to instead speak into that and tell you no. Don’t do it. Don’t you dare fall for that. Fear is not a language that God speaks. God has said “Fear Not” so many times in scripture.
Those who trust and abide in Him will (not maybe, not sometimes, but will) find peace (Isaiah 26:3).
Keep your thoughts on God. Remember what He says. Remember His promises. Stay in His Word. He’s got you.
“….there came a lion…” (1 Sam. 17:34.)
Through faith in God David conquered a lion and a bear, and afterwards overthrew the mighty Goliah. When that lion came to despoil that flock, it came as a wondrous opportunity to David. If he had failed or faltered he would have missed God’s opportunity for him and probably would never have come to be God’s chosen king of Israel. This was David’s training ground, and a way for GOD to receive glory in the victory.
We wouldn’t think of a lion being a special blessing. I know there have been lions in my own life that I didn’t think were a blessing at the beginning. Normally, we would only think it a cause for alarm. These “lions” are God’s blessings in disguise.
Every difficulty that presents itself to us, if we receive it in the right way, is God’s opportunity.
When the “lion” comes, recognize it as God’s opportunity no matter how rough the exterior.
