During my recent ordeal I heard advice from several people of the family of God. Their advice was sound and sometimes even harsh when it was necessary, I knew they all were well meaning and attempting to point me into the right direction. But sometimes even when you know full well they are right there also be another way.
One certain thing I had to take into consideration is this. God is not the author of confusion. And at times yours truly felt as if he were on a carousel that just did not seem to have rhyme or reasoning. So what does one do in cases like I was going through.
Consider your health. God created you to be who you are. He has done this from the time of Adam until forever. Know your limitations and be careful.. If you attempt to push the boundaries you will pay a price as I did. And the road to recovery could be long.
Remember what God has done for you in the past. If God did things for you in a certain manner then He is bound to do the same thing time and time again. I call it a comfortable pattern. A pattern that God know you can handle.
Stand fast in His Word. Continue reading/listening to His Holy Word. By so doing you build up your most holy faith. I choose to listen to Gods Word as the scripture says faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God. If you think your not doing any good by reading His Word you press on and continue. That Word is getting into you even if you don’t think so.
Enjoy what is around you. When God created this planet He did so for many reason. One of those reasons is so you can enjoy and use what is around you.
Never loose heart. God, the very God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob has a plan for your life even if you can not see it or understand it. Even if everyone is against you God is not.
Stick to yer Guns, Sometimes people will tell you one thing that just does not seem right between you and God. Stick to your guns and go where God is leading you, as long as it is legal. Never stick to your guns if the path is illegal. Always stay within the law. It was suggested that I go to a homeless shelter for a day or two. While that sounds good, and you may have to go that route, I stuck to my guns and waited for God to act. Now I will tell you that it may seem foolish but watch what took place: within one hour God provided a choice of two different places to stay. Mind you I had to make a few phone calls but it was Him who really opened the doors.
Be thankful always. Yes its hard to thank God for things when your in a storm. But even in the midst of the storm the lighthouse still shines her light for safe passage. If your not thankful some may consider you ungrateful.
I have been serving the Lord since 1982 and I can say with confidence this very thing:
Your faithfulness to Him has its own rewards in the end.
Just as long as you
“Stick To Yer Guns”
|Galatians 4:4-5“But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship.”
