I’ve been sitting here staring at the computer screen trying to figure out what to say to each of you today. What can I possibly say to encourage you to stay the course, today? What could I say that could, perhaps, give you a little bit more hope to keep pushing, today? What should I say that could, maybe, give you the strength you need to fight on another day? What could I say? You’ve heard it all, haven’t you? God will make a way when some days you don’t know if you’re coming or going. Knock and the door will be open when your knuckles are at the point of bleeding. Seek and you’ll find when you’ve looked high and low with no relief in sight. God is your provider and you know Him to be but right now you need Him to show up with an immediate thing! God is your strength yet your legs feel like they’ll give out at any moment. God won’t put more on you than you can bear and you feel like you’re bearing it all at this very moment.
Well baby, I don’t have anything else new to tell you because God is the same, old thing that still works. But I have a question for you. Do you believe in Him and the power He possess? Yea, I know you may be suffering right now and you need an instantaneous thing done in your life but what are you doing? Are you doing your part? Are you holding up your end of the bargain? I mean, you can’t expect God to keep showing up and you aren’t. Are you doing your part? Please understand this; whether you do your part or not, God will still show up when you call Him (He’s that type of Man) but you need to understand that in order for the shepherd to know the voice of His sheep, the sheep needs to make noise every now and then. Oh, I don’t mean you calling out for help all the time but praise Him just because; every once in a while. For Psalm 150:2 says, “Praise Him for his mighty acts: praise Him according to his excellent greatness,” not in return for what He does for you. Even if you’re in the midst of a storm, praise until it ends. Whatever it is you’re dealing with on today, don’t shortchange God. What you’re facing, won’t take you out; get this … if you face it! God will do what you need but you need to allow Him to do it, in His time!
