Time Out To Listen

Psalm 46:10

“He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.””

God is sovereign and in control. He is head master over all things. He’s The Heavenly director who orchestrates all activity in heaven and on earth from His glorious throne of power and grace. There is not one thing, one issue, one trial, one problem, one sorrow or even one pain touches us, that isn’t Father filtered and brought to us for our good and for His great glory. God speaks into our hearts through beds of pain, days of difficulty, moments of failure, and times of disappointment, speaking spiritual ” life” into our souls, if only we listen and hear. Let’s not miss Him!! Let’s not fail to hear His words because we’re busy with life, success and health! Oh that we would learn how to quiet ourselves before our awesome Creator God who is exalted over all the earth. To take a few moments out of a busy day, a busy week and a hectic life, to be still and ponder the divine attributes of our God who will be exalted among the nations! Take time to reflect on the awesomeness of His magnificence, the vastness of His grace, the hope of His promise and His pure, grace filled compassionate heart of love for His floundering people.

He is there just for you, right where you are and for your moment of fear, discouragement or disappointment. Meet Him and let Him take your cares and give you peace.

Where Is Hope?

DSC_0094

Romans 15:13

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

Our only hope in this wretched sin filled world is the God of our salvation who has made a way for us to escape it’s strongholds, it’s grip and the consequences of it’s death and ruin. By trusting in this One, who has made a way for us, through the death and resurrection of His pure, sinless Son, Christ our Savior, the lamb of God, the mediator between us and His Father, we can know the Hope of Life eternal and abundant life here on this earth.

In Col. 1:27, Paul reminds us that the message of hope and salvation is for everyone who will accept it when he says,

“To whom God was pleased to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory”

What confirmation that God is our only true source of Hope. Anything else in this life, that makes such a claim is a false teaching and a lie straight from the enemy. There is no hope for one who is dead in trespasses and sin but As Christ ones who trust in the Lord and in our Sovereign God, our creator and our sustainer may we be filled with a confident Hope. May we be supernaturally empowered by the Holy Spirit’s work within us to experience an abundant and overflowing joy and transcending peace that comes from our Heavenly Father.

For the difficult days, the struggles and the disappointments may we know and experience Your unfailing love for us God and move on victoriously in that divine Hope, peace and joy in spite of surrounding circumstances.
