Thankful Life - October 18, 2014

"Is anything too hard for the LORD?" ~Genesis 18:14

We do not know why some are healed, some are not... but in the process of living out this life, we are to live in Christ and - and for me... it is heartfully stated, ".... whatever means Lord, keep me on the path toward You and remind me daily to 'run to You' for strength and my daily bread".

Darkness hovers over this world and tries "desperately" to creep in to our lives... our hearts and minds; the enemy will fight to keep you resisting growth... rebuke him at every turn... and hang on to God for your daily witness and to His glory.

KNOW that as a child of God, light envelops you and your life...the light is already within us, but old habits, new worldly inputs and harsh times... we have to seek the light to stay in the light. We have to remember WHOSE we are and how much God loves us. When the world is closing in... let the God of the Universe open you up. Lord Jesus, help me not only see the light, but live wholly in it.

It is our daily interactions with the Holy Spirit that brings truth into our hearts and minds. Without the Word, and dwelling in it, we wither and dwindle to what lies are prominent outside the Word. It is only this that helps us share God's amazing work in our lives. 

I know there is so much to consider in this life... but when we consider all that He has for us, we can see this life's offerings as opportunities to seek Him. My heart breaks over all the heartache and pain that so many of you are facing and by no means can I even partially understand, but I can pray/we can pray... May the brokenness be replaced with our LORD's restoration in full, and may light be shown in the darkness that is consuming and devastating times. Be with us LORD and help us to be overwhelmed in the Spirit.

In the midst of "the journey", we will be blessed beyond measure; cry out with all of our hearts; laugh in disbelief of His promises for our life; disobey and not 'let go'... and ask un-rightly, "how much more God, how much more?" (2 Timothy 2:12) 

And, He will respond lovingly and fully... 

"For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.  But what father from among you, if his son will ask for a fish, instead of a fish will give him a snake? Or also, if he will ask for an egg, will give him a scorpion? Therefore if you, although you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the Father from heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him?” ~Luke 11:10-13 (New American Standard Bible)
How much more will He do for you?
