God has seen your affliction and He has heard your cry for help. You need to be attached to the LORD through expressing all of your praise to Him. God will contend for you and vindicate you as you find all that you Need in Christ. In His time, He will reward you with His blessing, joy, honor and justice. God has not forgotten you.
Sometimes things become so difficult that we just want to give up. But we need to faithfully continue our journey with God. He will guide us and bless us as we put our trust in Him and keep following Him. God’s ultimate purpose is to grow and mature us for His glory.
Our sin and rebellion against God will always bring separation and conflict. Sin always involves ongoing manipulation and deception. More sin and rebellion will never bring peace. However, in the midst of rebellion and sin we can continue to be a blessing to others no matter what. Ultimately, we need to climb Jacob’s ladder: By walking in obedience. By following after Jesus. By listening to God’s voice. By recognizing God’s active presence in our lives. And By committing our way to God.
There will always be people and situations that let us down. However, we need to handle disappointments God’s way. With God’s help we can turn away from our selfish intentions and bitterness while doing all we can to trust in God’s provision and sovereign plan.
As Christ followers we should do all we can to protect our integrity in all of our relationships ultimately finding our integrity in Christ. Jesus is the truth. Jesus is full of truth. We need to listen to His voice of truth. Truth is ultimately realized in Jesus.
God will always direct our paths as we walk with Him in integrity, peace, submission and love. As we depend on Him we can find the stability and security we are longing for in our lives.
We can leave a Godly legacy: By being prepared to die. By striving to raise an uncontentious family. By living a life of prayer. By not playing favorites. By not taking advantage of other people.
We need to do all we can to help our children find a godly spouse. We can help our children look for Christ-like character qualities in a future mate. As parents we can honor God as we raise our children, doing all we can to help them prepare for what God has for them.
We don’t need to fear our circumstances, our future or other people. Rather, we need to fear God and God alone with a reverential awe. His love and compassion for us will dispel our fears. We can know with certainty that He will hear our cries, lift us up, and open our eyes to see Him for all that He is to us.
