No matter what we go through, we MUST remember, God is fighting for us; our lives depends on us KNOWING this!! If we focus on our circumstances and situations, we are going to faint!! But if we keep our eyes on Jesus, when we are going through (and when we are not going through), He will guide us through, the land mines of life; Jesus will take our hands, and walk us through OUR way of escape!!
Our confidence to come out of WHATEVER we are going through, must be in God and God alone; He is the ONLY One Powerful enough, to bring us out! Hebrews 10:36-37 tells us: 35 Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. 36 For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise: 37 “For yet a little while, And He[a] who is coming will come and will not tarry.
We all have individual situations, therefore, what work for one might not work for another; we must go to God for ourselves, so He can give us OUR way out! We CANNOT pattern our lives after another person’s; even if we are going through the same thing, as he or she. We got to SEEK God for OUR way out; not try to come out the same way the person did – that will only frustrate us when it does not work for us! What is God telling YOU about YOUR situation? How is God telling and showing YOU how to come out?
When we are going through, we cannot lean to our own understanding but we MUST acknowledge God, in ALL our ways, so He can direct our path! We cannot trust our decisions, when we are going through; not thinking straight! We should try to lean to our own understanding, when we are not going through either!
God's blessings to you all and your families,
