For those who Love and serve Him 11/21/16

I am reminded of the many trials and challenges that we all face. Those of us who love the Lord, have certainly had to come to terms with losses, disappointments, and hurts. There are times when we just can’t seem to rectify in our minds why things had to happen the way that they did, or question “How can this be God’s will?”

Sometimes, God will reveal to us, much later on (if this hadn’t happened then this other thing would never have transpired). It is moments like those that we get a glimpse of how God will inject a blessing on the heals of hard happenstance, sometimes it’s immediate and other times we don’t realize the connection until much later. Ultimately, He is good and He cares about what happens to us. The evil things that come at us are not from Him, nor do they escape His awareness. WE are constantly being guided, protected, watched over, shielded. There is a sovereign law, essential to all human life given and maintained by our creator that forbids certain interferences. It is a very intricate and just process that dictates why some things can be miraculously resolved and others can’t.

We have to just know and trust through His word that He is for us and not against us. That He will deliver beauty for ashes and cause all things to work together for good.

The Year of the Lord’s Favor

Isaiah 61

61 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
    because the Lord has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
    to proclaim freedom for the captives
    and release from darkness for the prisoners,[a]
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor
    and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
    and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
    instead of ashes,
the oil of joy
    instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
    instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
    a planting of the Lord
    for the display of his splendor.

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.

Isaiah 55:9

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
