This message is for anyone who needs to hear some encouragement. I’m on that list today, let me explain….
I don’t believe seeing a meme tells me what I need to hear and that which is true. But I do believe that a picture can be a good reminder of what we already know about our Poppa God everyday!
That He is for us and not against us!
We know that Our Heavenly Father in Heaven is always working our lives out for our good even when it doesn’t feel that way.
For instance in the case of Joseph who had twelve brothers that caused him great harm. He ended up serving time in prison for years and being forsaken! But then, God brought him to great stature in the Pharaoh’s palace and He became a very rich man who had many blessings from God! He in turn blessed the brothers who condemned him saying the following words.
Genesis 50: 19-21
19. But Joseph said to them, “Do not fear, for am I in the place of God? 20. As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today. 21. So do not fear; I will provide for you and your little ones.” Thus he comforted them and spoke kindly to them.
We have to remind each other as Believers that God really knows what is best for us and how to position us to receive the most blessings. He will bring us through hard lessons to rid us of the sin in our lives that holds us downtrodden. But no matter what is happening in our lives or what we have done, He loves us and will always be here for us.
Christ is calling on me today to pray to remind my Spirit of who is in charge of this crazy existence. He brought me friendship and laughter with an adventure last night, (one of you who I will not name here), but He is always supplying me with Hope and Love when I am feeling unsure and stifled.
The Lord will always make a way for us. He will always redirect our steps to bring us to victory! And no matter how sure footed we are, as long as we are resting in Him, we can never fail.
We may slip up and we may fall short of the Glory He has placed in us from time to time. But this doesn’t change His view of us. He holds favor in His eyes for His children. And the whole point is that He shines through us brighter than we can shine ourselves.
Find Hope in Him today! Think of all of the wonderful promises He has given us as Believers! Call on Him to sweep you up above the waves that swallow us when we take our eyes off of Him! Begin to walk on water side by side with Jesus!
He is our Masterful Shepherd who leads His flock to their rest in Him. Praise God for His consistent healing and reminders of Love! No matter how this world makes us feel or what it does to us, we know we will always have Him to redeem us from the curses of law and sin.
God Bless you today! Remember to always Press on toward Glory!
