♕ Today's Promise: "The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’" Matthew 25:40
Dear Bride, Take each trial, test or distraction or even storm as something that soon God will turn for your good. I used to cry and cry when storms would come but one day God showed me a blessing while I was going through one terrible situation which in turn made me start seeing blessing after blessing even when nothing good was going right in my life. I’m so thankful God revealed this to me during my worst times. When things look so bad look for lil blessings here and there. God always daily gives them.
Like I said above I’ve known this for a while now but never could get my self together when things happened to have a mind set like what was written in this chapter 8, “You’re Being Set-Up”. I’ve always tried to figure out when something bad happened from what angle it was coming? Me being corrected? God working something out for my good? Just me being apart of someone else’s mess. Or a trial, test?
I mean it really can be a multitude of things. If I felt I was being corrected I always asked for Gods mercy but told him I knew I was wrong. The times I felt God was creating something bad to give me something good was a lil easier to get through but I failed so many times trusting God for the better out come. I love how this chapter was written. I think so far is my most favorite out of all the other information from this ministry I’ve read so far. Not that all isn’t good but this one helps give for a better peace of mind.
My whole 13 years of marriage I have prayed for my husband to become a godly man and leader of our home. I’ve also prayed for myself to become a godly women one God has designed me to be one he has called me to be. I could not see until now how God is answering my prayers. I can see how ya being separated is not necessarily a bad thing ya going through this terrible scary hopeless looking process to make all come to pass. I’m doing my best to stand strong knowing other marriages have gone through the scary hopeless process only to come out better then before with both husband and wife now walking righteously beside God. Both loving God as their first choice.
I will take each situation and have unwavering faith that God is working something out for my good. Just to keep faithfully serving God keep faithfully seeking him being so deeply in love with him that when something bad comes along I know God will wrap me up guiding and protecting my way.
I think I’m starting to get myself back into God being the love of my life like he was before he changed my heart towards my husband. Oh how I missed my Lord. Nothing in this world is better more loving more secure then being in such a place with God.
Dear Brides, take each problem as a trial or test and learn how to pass each one so you won’t get stuck taking the same one for years like I did.
“I am the LORD, and there is no other, The One forming light and creating darkness, causing well-being and creating calamity; I am the LORD who does all these” (Isaiah 45:6–7)
This sounds kinda weird but this verse gives me some what of a peace of mind. I’ve always known or known for some years now that nothing happens with out Gods permission. So anytime something did not go right I knew either I was being corrected or God was up to something allowing the enemy to attack.
So far this chapter “You’re Being Set-Up” in Living the Abundant Life was the best one. Seeing how our hopeless situations bring us down the most, distract us from our path God is trying to keep us on it helps to bring to light the truth behind our sorrows that they don’t have to be sorrows but for a minute then move on to waiting for that big blessing God has as the ending.
