Y’all! Did you know we serve a MIGHTY God!? He is with us in every circumstance! Not just through joys but also through sorrows! When we have an abundance and when we are in need, when there is certainty and confusion! Our God is a good God!!
I want to share with you something that I read from one of my daily “She Reads Truth” e-mails (have you ever heard of she reads truth? If not… go check it out!! It’s amazing!)
This is their text from Nov. 15 (you can read it on their website here)
“And if not…”
I feel like that’s the rally cry of my faith. I hold on to the idea that Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego had. I believe that God will show up, that He will show up here on Earth and move in His people and move mountains.
“And, if not…”
And if not, He is still good. He is still the King Most High. He alone is still worthy of our worship. It is still worth it. It would be far better for me to perish than to live a life of bowing down to a lesser god.
We may not live under a government that dictates who or what we can worship, but how often do we voluntarily allow idols to take residence in our life? Comfort, safety, health, wealth. How often do we bow down and sacrifice for those things?
I have hopes. I have desires. If I’m honest, sometimes I hope God’s desires line up with my desires for my life, not the other way around.
But, I believe I’d give up comfort, safety, health and wealth to more fully know God. I believe that giving up those things would benefit me here on Earth. And, if not, I have the comfort of knowing there is glory in Eternity.
Do you have something you are hoping God will show up and do? Do you trust that He is good to grant that desire? Do you trust that He is also good in the “And, if not…”?
Y’all I do have something that I have been hoping God will shop up and do in my life… for 4 years I have been hoping and waiting on God and last night… LAST NIGHT I read through this and I just got it… And if not… He is still good! Do you get it? He is still good! Just like the text says, He alone is still worthy of our praise!! And boy am I thankful for that!! I am also soo thankful for His unfailing love and peace that passes all understanding!
Have a fabulous rest of your week and take rest in knowing that He is Lord!
