Be thankful for the little changes you have made. Be thankful for the growth you are seeing in your life. Take a moment everyday to thank God for helping you to overcome personal difficulties. Stop walking, stop talking, stop moving and stop thinking too much, just reflect on you and how much God’s grace has nurtured you into becoming a better person.
It is important that we do not lose sight of the prayers offered, when we were desperately seeking to overcome personal struggles, of the mind, and body and those deep centered issues of the heart. When we were there, then, we felt so discouraged and sometimes often felt hopeless.….BUT God! He comes through with his reassuring love and he does something big in our lives, or something small, that seems big anyhow, showing us that he was behind the scenes all along, doing his thing. When we were there, then, we felt as if God had forgotten us, but we were wrong.
Now that we have overcome, we must remember that what God did for us in the past, he will do it again. Maybe not in the same fashion or timing, but he already has it worked out.
Learning to live totally relaxed in Christ, may seem like an order that is impossible to fill but if you are connected to “the Master of Impossibilities”, it is possible!
Let this short note remind you to keep a sound mind when you encounter new battles. Don’t throw your hands in the air, as if you never experienced God’s goodness, or his deliverance, or his keeping Grace. Don’t respond as if you never met God, if you did. Be honest about who he is and who he has been to you. Face your difficulties as if God is still in existence, because the truth is, he is and that would not change.
These verses are great reminders of God is and who he has always been.
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”
Numbers 23: 19-20
“God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the Son of Man, that he should repent. Hath he said, and shall he not do it? Or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?”
“Gracious is the Lord and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.”
