Have you ever wanted to lie down, curl up and throw a blanket over yourself? If the answer is “yes” keep reading.
Life is full of many challenges but God has graced us with the courage to face them. In the face of the enemy He has allowed us to see his awesome power at work.
Even with a blanket thrown over our head, God is still working on our behalf.
On a personal note the tests and trials faced in 2005 taught me the following: (Can you relate?)
- God is the all-sufficient One
- God is a Rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
- God is my Helper.
- God is my Healer.
- God is my Provider.
- God is my Shepherd.
- God is my Counselor.
- God listens.
- God speaks.
- God Is.
You can’t block out the world because Jesus said in this world we would have tribulations but to be of good cheer because He has overcome the world. We may not like a lot of the things we go through but lately I have been hearing that you have to go “through” to get “to”.
This battle that we are in is not about us but all about Him. There are so many souls who have not heard the Gospel of Jesus and may die never hearing about it. Let’s take the blanket off and gear up for 2006.
If you are making resolutions for 2006 then make them count. Resolve to tell as many people about Jesus. Resolve to pray more. Resolve to turn the focus off of yourself and onto God. Resolve to pass out more tracts to spread the Word! Resolve to do more for the cause of Jesus Christ.
We were never promised a rose garden but Jesus promised never to leave nor forsake us. No matter what the year 2006 brings, know that you will never have to walk it alone.
It is time to take the blinders off and go full force with what God has told you to do.
