Having gone through some rough circumstances over the past few months, I can tell you one thing
without any doubt. When we call upon the name of the Lord, he HEARS!
I don't ever remember (in all my 50+ years of life) a time that was rougher than the last several months.
I know many of you have gone through hard times also. There is one common thread in all of our lives.
That is that the Lord is faithful! When we cry out to Him, He hears us, and He NEVER forsakes us, He NEVER
leaves us, and He NEVER fails us.
God is calling His people to a higher place, with that call will come a degree of pressing that you have
not experienced in the past. The place of pressing is where all that is good (all that is God) is supposed
to show in and through us. It is the place and time that is hardest to show that we belong to Him. It is
the place that it is hardest to act like Him... It is always a time right before promotion also.
Here is the good news. Tears may endure for a night, but Joy comes in the morning!
In Psalm 18, David said "I cried unto the Lord, and he heard me", Psalm 142 David said "I cried unto the
Lord with my voice, with my voice unto the Lord did I make my supplication"...
David KNEW how to reach the heart of God, even in times of things seeming that God had forsaken him,
David knew that God was never more than a breath away. He knew that when He cried out to God, that God
not only heard him, but ALWAYS rescued him. He knew that God was just waiting for him to say "God, I can't do
this without your help"..
It is in the hardest of times when we realize how weak we are, and how strong God in us is!
Let God strengthen and uphold you my dear friends.. He is with you!
Isaiah 41:10 says "Fear thou not, for I am with thee, be not dismayed for I am thy God, I will strengthen thee,
I will help thee, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness" KJV..
My 3 thoughts for you today are:
1: God is a good God.
2: He loves you.
3: He is in control, and will take care of you.
Hang onto Jesus, He is there for you!
Jesus loves you, and so do I..
