God Always has a Plan July 19, 2016
This morning I got a call from my husband that ANOTHER one of his friends was let go at work. They have been dropping like flies since November. It's crazy! No heads up that it may be coming, just "good morning! Here is your last check. Have a nice day." Satan is having a blast seeing the hurt and terror being delivered to these unsuspecting people. Darkness surrounds not only those who have been let go, but those who are left behind wondering if they will be next. Living for the most part paycheck to paycheck, now having bills with no way to pay and mouths that will cry out in unknown before hunger, it is soul crushing for anyone.
Through it all God, You are so good. You take these moments when we are stripped down to our core, at our most vulnerable and only You can make them something AMAZING for YOUR GLORY!!! I have seen it!
JESUS NEVER FAILS!!
God already new we would worry about these days. Yet He tells us not to be anxious. In the ESV, the book of Matthew 6:25-34, we read “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. ..."
JESUS NEVER FAILS.
As hard as it is when we feel the pit of despair closing in all around. When fear has its firm icy grip on our heart, taunting failure and unworthiness. REFUSE THAT Christian! CAST OUT THAT UNTRUTH!! Out of our darkness our King will rise!! PRAISE GOD!! He WILL use this trial to make us better if we allow Him to.
Romans 8:28 "28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."
Lord God, whoever is going through this trial right now, and for those of us who love someone going through this, Lord Jesus we lift this situation up to You. Bring comfort to the hurting. May they remember that You have their back. Be their light in the darkness and ease the anxiousness in their hearts. Lord God use this for Your Glory. We trust in You!! In Your name we pray.
Hallelujah and Amen.
