Happy Monday! What an exciting time to be alive. What a time to see the hand of God at work! Can you see it? No? Well, here we go! Psalm 50:15 “Call on Me in the time of trouble. I will deliver you, and you will be an honor to my name”. I will deliver you! Just call, tell me. Wow! What a promise; from the only one who can keep every promise, He made! Call on Him, as you examine your life and see what God is doing inside, with your character, as well as your outside circumstances. Are any prayers being answered? Are you praying, “calling” expecting an answer?
I was led to this text today and wow was my heart filled with hope, anticipation, and joy! Psalm 118. (Message). Thank God cause he’s good, because his love never quits. Tell the world, Israel, ( Christians), His love never quits... Pushed to the wall, I called to God; he answered. I am not afraid. God’s now at my side, I am not afraid... Hemmed in by barbarians, in God's name, I rubbed their faces in the dirt. Like swarming bees, like a wild prairie fire, with no way out, I rubbed their faces in the dirt! I didn’t die, I lived. God tested me, God TESTED me! He pushed me HARD, but he didn’t hand me over to death!
We’re in a testing time; don’t think any of this is just because. It’s not. Hemmed in by sickness, rub its face in dirt! Hemmed in by desperate financial need, rub its face in dirt! Hemmed in with a character flaw, or a bad habit you can’t get a hold on, get victory over? Rub it’s face in the dirt! Hemmed in by racism and hatred, rub its evil face in the dirt! “The hand of God will turn the tide! The hand of God is raised in victory”!
If you don’t expect God to come through when you pray, what’s the point?
Blessed are you who enter in God's name, he has bathed us in light.
Thank God, he’s so good! His love never quits!
Today, here’s my prayer: That we pray, believing God is, God hears, God answers! Today is Tuesday, I got waylaid by a friend’s unexpected loss. She’s going to be ok. You’re going to be ok. We’re going to be ok! Open God's word today and wait! His love never ends! Direction will come. Help will be given. Peace will fill your heart. God will get us through this storm and tell us what to do, how to do it, when to do it and provide all we need to accomplish His goal for us. The obstacles...in Jesus' name, rub their faces in the dirt!
Happy Day after Monday!
