Give It Over One More Time

So you and I and we and us, we sometimes find it difficult to just ‘let go’ of the heap of stuff that nips at our heels breaking into our day, and dragging on into the dark of our sleepless nights! We give it over and we take it back. Oh yeah, over and over again we do and time and time again these things trip us up and defy our faith and our trust in the God that we know really cares about us. He’s graced us with His favor in a lifetime of blessing and yet, these issues creep into the nooks and crannies and small moments of the day to steal from us. Yeah, they do! They rob us of joy if our eyes aren’t focused properly on the God in control of it all. Eyes fixed on the problems turn even small things into overwhelming moments,huge hurdles and big days to navigate through. Sometimes we may find that we don’t do so well on the journey and weariness sets in and looms heavy about our hearts and our heads. Well, beautiful soul, give it and all of it over once more to the God in charge! The One who holds you in the dark nights, in the storms, in the rough waters, and carries you through the fire unscathed and unharmed. He knows you through and through; your fears, your worries, your insecurities, your weaknesses. Yeah, He made you from scratch and no one understands you like He does. Let Psalm 139: 13 -14 refresh your memory for now, let it sink in deep. “Certainly you made my mind and heart; you wove me together in my mother’s womb. I will give you thanks because your deeds are awesome and amazing. You knew me thoroughly;” Did you get that? His deeds are awesome and amazing! You are His creation ~ yeah, awesome and amazing you and you can know that not one thing will touch you that He doesn’t allow. So tuck that under your soft pillow tonight and rest on it. Relax in His presence and focus on God’s goodness. He knows you inside out and He got solutions for all that information overload jammed into your mind and all that heap of stuff on your plate. Breathe and ask His counsel. Don’t forget to listen. His words are wisdom and truth. He won’t lead you off track.

Isaiah 55: 8-9
“Indeed, my plans are not like your plans, and my deeds are not like your deeds, for just as the sky is higher than the earth, so my deeds are superior to your deeds and my plans superior to your plans. For just as the sky is higher than the earth, so my deeds are superior to your deeds and my plans superior to your plans.

Psalm 46; 1,2,3,9,10
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof….He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire…. Be still, and know that I am God:

Joy For The Road

So we need joy today don’t we? Right smack dab in the middle of the hard places and the difficult roads. Yeah, right where it’s so difficult to find it sometimes. Where does it go when the troubles hit home and the friends fail, and the lonely road just gets longer, and family members don’t comply and finances wane, and health fails, and fame dies, and popularity takes a nose dive and your project gets rebuked and rejected and on and on and on it goes? Beautiful soul, What’s taken your joy today? If something truly has robbed us of joy, then we find it in all the wrong places. Well, dear ones, we’re instructed to look for it in the hard places and in James 1: 2-3, James reminds us of that when he writes, “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.” Yeah, those trials produce back bone and maturity in our walk. They help to grow us up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord! They take us to new heights, to new levels, to higher levels, to strengthening levels, to levels that defy the enemy and put him in his place ~ under the foot of our Saviour. Pure joy awaits here in the difficult, and even in the midst of them! Oh, the hard places can rob us of our joy if our focus isn’t on the sovereign God over the problem. He handles it! He takes care of it! He is our joy in those places of hardship and trying situations.

No joy today? Then get alone with your maker and the creator of the universe and life itself. When our lives centre around Him, joy abundant flows from the hem of His garment infiltrating every tiny detail of our circumstances. He’s there for you today! Seek His face and rejoice with the Psalmist in Psalm 28:7,
Psalm 28:7 “The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and He helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.”
