Grace morning on this marvelous meaningful Monday!
God puts dreams in our hearts and writes a destiny over our lives. And if we trust Him enough to take Him at His word, we will find ourselves on a journey toward the fulfillment of that dream.
Unfortunately, the path that takes us to the promise is always wrought with thickets, thorns and trials. Nothing worth having ever comes easy or without opposition. Storms will come, sickness will come, suffering will come, betrayal will come, disappointments will come, shattered dreams will come, if you find yourself in a season of unending nerve racking situations, trust in the power of God and your fears will be confronted. God allows the path to be difficult because He intends on refining you and preparing you for your place of promise. God is intent on extracting from you, that which your enemy would love to leverage against you.
We all have weak spots and areas of inconsistency in our lives.
And so, as we follow His lead, we will at different times, find ourselves in a valley – a valley of decision. Valleys are deep, dark and dangerous.
God wants to take us from valley living to victorious living.
“May God, who puts all things together, makes all things whole, Who made a lasting mark through the sacrifice of Jesus, the sacrifice of blood that sealed the eternal covenant, Who led Jesus, our Great Shepherd, up and alive from the dead, Now put you together, provide you with everything you need to please him, Make us into what gives him most pleasure, by means of the sacrifice of Jesus, the Messiah. All glory to Jesus forever and always! Oh, yes, yes, yes.”
Hebrews 13:20-21 MSG
If you’re in a season of refining, lean in. Trust the loving hand of God and know that He will lead you into a fresh and flourishing future when you place your trust in him.
Live, love, and laugh your through this magnificent Monday!
