To say this week started out as one of the most painful, heart wrenching, and sorry weeks of my life, is an understatement. My birthday was Oct 29, and normally I look forward to birthdays. But this week, I just could not think about Friday, October 29. I had too many other things clouding my mind, and keeping me from moving forward.
I decided to take the time from my lunch breaks and during the day to fast and pray. I also spent more time than usual reading the Word. I really felt that God was reminding me that Psalm "Who shall ascend to His holy HILL? the one will clean hands, and pure heart" I know that I had reacted in wrong ways and did not have clean hands or a pure heart. I began to ask God for forgiveness.
In this life we live, there is more to life than what meets the eye. There is a spirit realm that we cannot see. If we do not live and walk in the Word, then we will not be able to defend ourselves. We must constantly be aware of the enemy who always seeks to devour us. Wearing the full armor of God, and realizing that God has already given us the victory, we will crush the head of the enemy. Greater is he who is in us, than he that is in the world.
And yet it is hard when in the physical, you know what you see. But I was reminded that if we know who we are in Christ, then we will believe His promise, even though we see something else occuring in the natural. IF we ask God for wisdom, He will surely grant it, but only if we believe, not doubt as we ask. So the radio minister was sharing think of a situation that you cannot see any visible solution. Second remind yourself of who God is, remembering that He is greater, stronger and higher than any other. He is Sovereign God. Nothing comes as a surprise to Him. Third, turn over that difficult problem to his hand. Pray over it, and ask God for wisdom to know how to move forward. Pray that you will do whatever the Lord tells you to do regarding that problem situation. We know that God will work through you.
