There are many times when you want to give up in your life.
Many times when you feel like it isn’t even worth it to keep going. What is the point you ask yourself, why am I even doing this you say?
I am here to tell you Jesus is doing everything for a reason and a purpose in your life.
It is not an accident that you feel this way, and God has not allowed you to go this far to leave you behind or alone. He has been there every single step of the way. And the best days that you have yet to encounter are before you not behind you.
Be comforted by his words today:
But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. “Do not fear their threats; do not be frightened.” 1 Peter 3:14 NIV
8 In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety. Psalms 4:8 NIV
The Safety of the Faithful
To the Chief Musician. With stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.
Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness!
You have relieved me in my distress;
Have mercy on me, and hear my prayer.
How long, O you sons of men,
Will you turn my glory to shame?
How long will you love worthlessness
And seek falsehood?
But know that the Lord has set apart for Himself him who is godly;
The Lord will hear when I call to Him.
Be angry, and do not sin.
Meditate within your heart on your bed, and be still.
Offer the sacrifices of righteousness,
And put your trust in the Lord.
There are many who say,
“Who will show us any good?”
Lord, lift up the light of Your countenance upon us.
You have put gladness in my heart,
More than in the season that their grain and wine increased.
I will both lie down in peace, and sleep;
For You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.
Being obedient doesn’t sound that pleasant in the moment. And many times you may ask yourself “was that even God that was telling me to do that? or say that” But when that “thing” doesn’t leave your spirit and keeps pulling on you and tugging on your heart to talk about it or write about it. You have to know that it’s from God. Also when you are filled with the holy ghost, the holy spirit of God, and are born again of the water and the spirit, that is God’s way of letting you know he wants you to do something in the Spirit and act on it in the physical. And we surely have to be obedient to his voice and his calling for our lives. Because he will most definitely use somebody else if we are not willing. So, if you have a yearning feeling to do something for God and you haven’t acted on it…now is your season and reason to jump into it! He has placed specific gifting in you for a purpose and he wants you to act in faith to use it!
It’s hard to trust God in the hard things and in the difficult times. It is not an easy task. Especially when you see quite the opposite going on in your life. But you have to push against the tide, against your emotions, and against your flesh.
Keep being obedient to him today. Don’t give up and be rest assured like David in Psalms 4:8 that he alone makes you dwell in peace and safety. All the days of your life! Just trust him!
Thank you for sticking with me for so long, for those who have! I have been putting this blog off for months as you can see! But I felt personally to share that I have to trust God with this blog and know he is going to do the increase! I am being obedient and trusting his will for my life by writing as I have felt in my spirit for a long time to write here. And now I am obeying! What do you feel in your life, that you have been putting off from God?
I hope this short post can serve as a blessing to you in any way shape or form! I love you guys. May Jesus Bless you all might-fully!
