Love you all, praying for you.
I just love God’s Word – it’s encouragement! Call on me and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things that you do not know. God decides what to show us – if we call on Him. Great and mighty things! Sometimes we don’t recognize what is the great and mighty and what is not. I am so thankful that God will always tell you the what – even though He doesn’t always tell you the why. Sometimes we want to know the why before the what… when God has the what for you – and the why will come in time – even if not until eternity. We want to know the why – why can’t I, or why is it taking so long? Or Why did this have to happen? Sometimes the devil will use the why. He always wants you to doubt God’s Word, and doubt God’s love. Just because God isn’t revealing the why yet, doesn’t mean His Word is not true, or that He doesn’t love you. God is more concerned with the what for you, than the why for you. He has the next step for you to take – to get you to the good that He has for you! Every why doesn’t really matter. Some things you are not ready to understand yet. Will you have faith? Will you obey what He said? And what He said to do next? You can leave the why to Him, the what is up to you. God will tell you what to do next – even in the middle of the storm. Sometimes it’s put your hope in God, sometimes its take refuge in Him first, not last. Sometimes it’s in everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Sometimes it’s I have learned to be content in every circumstance I am, I know how to get along with humble means and I also know how to live in prosperity. In any and every situation I have learned the secret of being filled and being hungry, of having abundance and suffering need, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Sometimes it’s take no thought about tomorrow, If I care for the birds of the air and the flowers of the field, how much more will I care for you. Sometimes it’s go to Nineveh, sometimes it’s whatever you do work at it with all your heart as unto the LORD, not men, for it is from the LORD that you receive the reward of the inheritance, it is the LORD, Christ whom you serve. It doesn’t matter if you didn’t get the pay raise, or the promotion, you work for God, not other people or other things. And He will not let you be underpaid forever. Be like Daniel, be like Joseph, learn to be excellent with the excellence of Christ. The Psalmist often asked why? Why are you downcast O my soul? Put your hope in God. Yet – praise Him. God doesn’t always tell us the why – but He will always tell us the what. It’s because He promised to lead us and guide us in the way we should go, the path that is best for us, the way chosen for you! Praise God – what you should do, He’ll tell you. Just ask Him if you’re not sure… James 1:5 – He promised He will tell you. And leave the why with Him. He knows why, He will tell you all that you need to know about it at the right time. Don’t spend time on the why if you haven’t done the what yet. The next thing He told you. Praise God – when you praise him, joy comes – and He comes with it. Praying that you will know what He told you to do today, and do it with joy? Why? We don’t have to understand every why. But if we will take His next step – the why will be answered, or the why won’t matter. His promise is sure, His blessings are endless to those who seek and obey Him, and the joy that He brings can’t be found anywhere else.
