You maybe a Christian and you attend church every time the doors open, prays daily, and even give your tithe. Yet if you place your confidence in your own wisdom instead of trusting God, you are standing in the way of His highest blessings for your life. Regardless of how we appear to others! God knows the real you. Think about that.
We can’t forget that He sees our our life from the beginning to the end. Many times what seems painful to you is really God at work and ultimately bringing us closer to Him. His primary goal is not to make us great but to experience intimate fellowship with us and to prepare us for eternity! Zephaniah 3:17 says, “The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.” God rejoices over you! Is that not an awesome snap shot of God’s love? Even though we are in a process of becoming like him, with our imperfections and junk. He is patient, loving, and He is shaping our lives to becoming more like Jesus! Man, He has a ways to go with me!
I want to encourage you this morning to know Jesus is there to strengthen and to encourage you! Instead of trying to live up to others standards, allow the Holy Spirit to teach you to dwell on the things of God. You can walk in victory because Jesus Christ lives in you! God uses every frustration, fear, and every feeling of hopelessness to bring us closer to Him.
I want to close with two questions. Is your heart pointed towards God? Or is it focused on selfish desires? Have a great Saturday and just know how much He lives you!! God bless.
