I continue to experience the reality of God’s Sovereignty in and over my life. You know what I mean? There are times when things come up and you have to immediately respond. Sometimes you may deal with the change willingly – with a peaceful tone; but when you are engrossed in the current situation and God allows something to surface that requires your immediate attention, a harsher response is often times the case. Why is that?
Change is not comfortable. Change is not always the best choice. However, CHANGE IS NECESSARY. If one is not changing that begs the question “are you living?” In my life the matter of change can surface with simplicity. I can be walking one moment and needing to sit down the next. Now I want to continue to walk but pain will cause me to have to stop walking. There is nothing I can do about that other than SIT DOWN. Amazingly, I have put myself through so much more difficulty because of this dilemma of not wanting to change. See I had worked hard at gaining the momentum in my mobility. I had a particular goal in mind and my walking was required for me to arrive at the planned destination. So I learned the importance of perseverance.
That principle helps me to keep God present during the hardship and endure it like a soldier engaged in battle. When the battle becomes intense the soldier can’t just lay down and say “I am not going to fight any more!!!” He has to stand in the circumstance, realize his mission and persevere through the intensity and employ all of his skills and training to emerge victoriously. Being More Than A Conqueror means that, just like the soldier, you too stand in the situation – REALIZE YOUR MISSION (trust God, stand on His Word), ALLOW THE HOLY SPIRIT TO INFLUENCE EVERY THOUGHT, DECISION, PLAN AND GOAL, and BELIEVE THAT, just like Christ resurrected from the grave, WE ARE ABLE TO CONQUER ALL HARDSHIPS VICTORIOUSLY. “If God be for us, WHO (what) CAN BE AGAINST US.
You know how you get when you are NEEDING to call someone and talk? The friend I call on is Jesus I did not get to complete my message about “MY Friend”. Just review the words to the hymn “What a Friend We Have In Jesus”
I pray that you will develop a thirst for the Word and a hunger for His Presence. I also hope that you will continue to support this ministry as it develops.
God bless you.
