Grace morning on this winsome and wonderful Wednesday.
Ever feel like God is some type of distant detached deity that is delinquent on delivering you from your situation. The truth is, he’s not. Whatever struggle you’re going through, you can rest assured God is in the midst and you’re not alone. You have God in your corner. Scripture tells story after story of how the Lord has been faithful and how His people have struggled for generations.
Remind yourself of how the Lord was faithful to His people and that He will be faithful to you as well. Remind yourself that it is nearly impossible to predict the end of the story when you are still living in the middle of it. Remind yourself that the God of the stories in the Bible is the same God over your story.
Even in the midst of your struggle, you can choose to praise God. His character hasn’t changed, even if our circumstances have. So choose joy for your journey in your life struggles. That joy may not look the way we might expect – joy isn’t always smiles and splendor. Joy may be choosing to sing through the tears, pray through the pain, or choosing to trust in Christ when you are afraid it might mean having to let go of your dream.
“Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and your right hand delivers me.”
Psalms 138:7 ESV
When you’re facing a multiplicity of problems, difficulties or tough decisions, trust God’s sovereignty to sufficiently supply you for the difficult journey ahead.
Live, love, and laugh your way through this worry-less Wednesday!
