For the past few days I have come to re-realize that Jesus is always there. That He never left.
With so many things going on around us... we tend to worry about things we have no control over. We find ourselves stressing over: money being tight, work being stressful, relationships going down the drain, depression and so on and so forth. We fale to remember that God IS right there. Waiting for us to seek Him.
Why is it that we focus on these minor things? Why do we not rememeber that God is much bigger than any bill, sickness, unemployment, lonliness and/or confusion? Instead of praising God through our storm and realizing that we are blessed, we sickin ourselves with things we have no control over.
Don't forget... that Jesus is the great I Am.
Don't forget... he seeks a relationship with us all.
Don't forget that... Jesus Christ is waiting for an invitation to come in to your life. In fact, he says, "Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in" (Revelation 3:20).
Don't forget that... "For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16)
Don't forget to... seek a relationship with Him.
Don't forget to... let your light shine!!
Why don't we understand that when we allow for things to be bigger than God, we are only entertaining the devil. One who's not even worth it. The devil's job is to wear and tear us down... and NOT build us back up.
Your walk will not be easy... But someone once told me that; "anything worth having... is worth not quiting on". DON'T quit on Jesus. He hasn't quit on you!!
In due time things will get easier. Things will be more managable. Your storm will pass.
But for now... You've got to go through... to get to... what God has for you.
