Good morning Lovelies. Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Lord protect me from the abuse and harm of toxic people. I know You desire to set me free. Free from the hurt of others, but also free me from my own sin and bondage. Help me have eyes to see toxic behavior around me and in me, and give me strength, courage, and resilience to break free from that toxicity and choose the path of life. Thank You for always protecting and guiding me Lord. Thank You for always being kind, gracious, loving, and forgiving. In the Mighty Matchless Name of Jesus. Amen!
As I look back over my life, I can see things that I’ve done that probably would and should have taken my life. People I’ve hurt knowingly and unknowingly. There are many things that You do before turning your life over to the Lord that are negative and detrimental. Just many areas that brought me difficulties, hardships and pain. But, I continued to grow in what and who God was and is in my life. Focusing on what God has for me to do and trying to be. I have learned to appreciate difficult days. I am stimulated by the challenges that I encounter along the way. They just help to increase my faith in God, because I know what He can do.
Look back on your life and see how He has helped you through difficult days. If you are tempted to think, “Yes, but that was then and this is now!” Remember who He is, He’s the great I Am. Although you and your circumstances may change drastically at times, God remains the same throughout time and eternity. He is the same yesterday, today and always.
This is the basis of your confidence. Gain confidence from your knowledge that with Him you can handle anything. Our knowledge is comprised of three parts: your relationship with God, His promises in His Word and past experiences that you successfully coped with during difficult days. We must remember to stay in His presence because there is where you live, move and have your being. Let the creator of the universe rule your life!
“So do not fear, for I am with you, so do not be dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
“But you remain the same and your years will never end.” Psalm 102:27
“For in Him we live and move and have our being. As some of you poets have said, “We are His offering.” Acts 17:28
Live life, give people hope and share your heart, wisdom, and resources. Never place a period where God says there should be a comma.
As always peace and blessings, be safe. Take advantage of your opportunities, but never allow your opportunities to take advantage of you. Remember God loves you and so do I. ©krw 02.26.19
