Do you need direction in your life today? Jesus said, “I am the way.” Not only is He the Way to life in eternity, but Jesus is a Waymaker here on earth. He is the way to everything you need in this life. Do you need to know the way out of debt? Do you need to know the way to having better relationships…the way to overcome an addiction…to live in peace and joy? When you know Jesus, you know the Way!
So many times in my life, I feel that I’m begging God to reveal His Will, but it seems like all I’m doing is toiling away at some mundane, repetitive task just waiting for my life to begin. What I’ve come to realize is that God doesn’t waste anything. He’s always teaching us; always shaping us. He’s preparing us to respond instinctively to the battles of life with a level of faith and skill we didn’t know we possessed. You’re on your way to becoming a “Spiritual Black Belt” and your Heavenly Father is with you every step of the way!
Maybe you’re in a place right now where you feel that your prayers aren’t being answered and that God has forgotten about you, but nothing could be farther from the Truth. The Truth is, God loves you, He’s right there with you and He is using every difficult circumstance in your life for your good and His glory. If you’re going through something difficult or frustrating, I believe it’s because God is preparing you for something great! Keep trusting Him no matter what.
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and don’t rely on your own understanding. In all your ways, submit to Him and He will guide your steps.” Proverbs 3:5-6
Don’t give up just because things seem hard. You’ve invested so much, and you never know, just a few more days of believing, another few weeks of doing the right thing, another few months of staying in faith, and you could see that situation turn around. Remember, God is on your side! Keep standing and keep believing because you are closer than you think to fulfilling every desire He’s placed inside of you!
“…With us is the Lord our God, to help us and to fight our battles.”(2 Chronicles 32:8, NKJV)
I’ve learned that when the enemy attacks, God reacts. God doesn’t just sit back and think, “Well, I wonder what’s going to happen. I wonder what they’re going to do.” No, God goes to work. You are His most prized possession. It says in Psalms, “God is close to those that are hurting. God is close to the broken hearted.” God knows when you’ve gotten a bad medical report. He knows when you’re struggling in your finances. He knows when you’re being mistreated. You may not see anything happening, but you can be assured that Almighty God is not only aware, He is at work. He already has the solution. If you will stay in faith, at the right time, He will release a flood of His power, a flood of healing, a flood of restoration. He will not only bring you out, He will bring you out better off than you were before!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father, thank You for being my help. I know that You are with me even in the hard times; even when I can’t see a way out. I trust that You are working behind the scenes in my life and will bring me through to victory in Jesus’ name. Amen.
