Last week when I posted I said that I rarely post unless I feel the urging of the Spirit. Today is one of those days. In the last week God has been dealing with me about something. Ironically, it has been the verse I referenced in the last post:
"For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and
says to you, 'Do not fear; I will help you.'"
While I am not ready to discuss it here, the Lord has abundantly blessed me in the last few months in the area of finances. There has been no.doubt.in.my.mind.it.came.from.Him.......none....whatsoever. As I stated in the last post, His fingerprints are all over it.
Having said that, this is the moral He has been trying to get into my thick skull this week: If something happens in your life that is His will, it will happen no matter what....unless you openly defy Him. I don't plan to do that.
While the devil has been playing with my head all week, yesterday he was particularly active; it seemed he was going to ruin this blessing God has bestowed upon me. There seemed to be no way around it. Then last night, a possible solution was offered. As of this moment, it has worked; the evil one has been thwarted yet again.
I leave you with this cornerstone verse (for me) again:
"For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you,
'Do not fear; I will help you.'"
To have true faith, we can not walk by sight but trust Him. Even though He is the one who gave me that verse, I didn't fully trust Him.
Perhaps I should have that verse tattooed since having it at my computer desk has not cemented into my brain.
