This post is a little early, especially since there are still 8 days of 2016 left and Christmas hasn’t even been celebrated yet, nevertheless I have something to say, so I might as well get on and say it right?
2016 has been a pretty monumental year for me. Although the world has been seemingly turned upside down by many adverse political stances, a multitude of high profile deaths and a never ending deluge of sad news, I am reminded of one thing and one thing alone.
The Lord is in control.
It can be so easy to despair and become fearful of the wickedness that permeates every pore of society, yet the Lord gently whispers to my often distressed spirit that none of what is happening, happened or going to happen is a surprise to Him. It is our comission as believers, to earnestly pray for the eyes of the blind to be opened to his great and marvellous light. That the binds of the adversary will be loosened by the blood of Jesus!! That hardened hearts and dark souls will be softened and flooded by the love of King Jehovah!! Hallelujah!!
It can be all too easy for us to give attention to all that is wrong in the world but why not focus on what is right? Let us pray for God’s will to be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.
God continues to be so very good to me, don’t get me wrong, my life is far from easy and it is not perfect, but I am choosing to see the best in my situation, because my God is for me!! I am a victor not a victim because I am HIS!!
This time last year, I had a stirring in my spirit that I wasn’t doing all that God had created me to be. Lo and behold several short days later, the Lord reminded me of my childhood passion to become a teacher and He cultivated the seeds of desire for me to pursue a teaching career, I watered the seeds and chased after the dream, seeking out who could assist me with His divine guidance. In no time at all God directed me to the right people and the doors flung wide open. I have already completed three months of this highly intense training program and in a further six short months, God willing, I will be a fully qualified teacher!!! GLORY!! GLORY!! GLORY!!
On top of that, God blessed my brother and I with a beautiful home of our own. A home that has proved to be more than we could have ever asked for or imagined….wow
Whenever I begin to feel discouraged, all I have to do is look back at the path the Lord has faithfully walked me along and the spirit of discouragement has to FLEE!! I have no right to feel anything but JOY, PEACE, LOVE and FAVOUR when I look at all that God has done for me!! My very worst days, where all hell seemed to be breaking loose, have produced my resilience, strength and faith in Christ. What the enemy means for harm, GOD will make GOOD!!!
He is such a miracle worker friends!!
Trust Him and BELIEVE!!
