We CAN DO….HARD!!!

These ARE the “Days of His Presence” for those who have humbled themselves, surrendered ALL, and looked UP into the Face of God…expecting! He is ever calling His People to come to Him so He can “get us READY”  for the times we live in… preparing us for “things to come”.  These are days of learning a deeper TRUST of Him….leaning not to our own understanding!  Proverbs 3:5-6

I speak to those of us who are facing all manner of losses…. but the all important difference is that we face them…. WITH the help of the Father.

People all around are losing jobs, finances, possessions, relationships, health, facing disasters, etc…and they don’t have the “Balm of Gilead” to apply to their wounds…as we do. They don’t have the “promise of the Father”…as we do. They don’t have the inner JOY of the Lord in the face of loss…as we do. But such hard times also prepare us to “understand” and to have “compassion” on others as never before….because we have “been there” and “been through it” and are being “touched by the feeling of their infirmities”.

He is with us…to give us the priceless gift of His “PEACE that passes understanding”! Ephesians 3:19

It WILL all work together for good….but ONLY for those who are living out their “love of the Lord and are called according to HIS PURPOSE!” Romans 8:28   We are being pruned and loved by our Heavenly Gardner in a way to fit us to produce MORE fruit in the days to come and to also prepare us for our Heavenly rule and reign with Him in eternal days to come as we remain faithful through these bitter times.  John 15:1  We are safe in His Hands.  Even as He prunes us, He becomes more precious…day by day.  Our HOPE…expectation for future good…is ever IN HIM!!!

I have had my tears in His Presence as I have walked in the beautiful fall evenings this week and looked up to His vast canopy of a sky!!!  I just let it OUT….OUT LOUD to Him…and His Presence was so near and comforting and is all the reward I need!  Looking into HIS EYES…I absolutely KNOW I am OK…and so many who don’t know Him…cannot say that nor know it in their heart!

We CAN DO……HARD! I heard someone say that this week for we are all going through HARD times….but we CAN DO…HARD!  Because we have HIM –  right by our SIDE!!! He is with us…never leaving nor forsaking us.  Jesus Christ is the SAME…yesterday, today, and forever! Hebrews 13:8

He knows what is round the next cliff….He knows what is the NEXT STEP!  And He will make sure we know it too…when it is time to make it…IF we are continuously…LOOKING UNTO HIM!

Hang in there….These are EXCITING TIMES!  Regardless of your situation always remember that  “men and women” and “situations” do NOT define us!  ONLY GOD does that!!!

LISTEN carefully to what He is saying to YOU…and then FOLLOW His instructions!  Father KNOWS BEST!!!

DETERMINATION: Working intently to accomplish goals regardless of the opposition.

“Jesus Christ is the SAME…yesterday, today, and forever!” Hebrews 13:8

Looking unto JESUS,

Sandy
