“The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy” (Psalm 126:3).
That’s about all I can say right now. I wish you could see the smile on my face. Beloved, our faithful God has shown His light into our darkness and answered our desperate cries for help. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS. To say I am filled with praise, comfort, and encouragement is much too simplistic a statement. My cup is ecstatically running over!
Lord-have-mercy on the women I am speaking to this weekend. Oh man. I may be too “up” for their liking, but when God comes through, and the enemy is defeated, it’s not normal to conceal our joy, right? My only promise is that I will try refraining from praise dancing, and running the aisles. Wink.
There’s nothing quite like getting some insight and wisdom into a particularly complicated situation. Don’t you think? “Seeing as God sees” and “knowing as God knows” beats the tar out of so much earthly and satanically infused confusion. I believe in its most basic definition, this is what the Bible means in terms of a biblical, God-infused, plea for God to give His people wisdom. Life is tough, but God promises to ALWAYS lead His children.
According to James 1:5 if we, His children, ask for wisdom we better believe Him to receive it. Why so? Because our Daddy-God longs for His blood-bought ones to see as He sees, and know as He knows. Friend, He came as the “With-Man-God" with the sole purpose of intimately doing all manner of life with us. Leaving no vestige of our lives untouched by His exceedingly capable hands, His ever-present heart, and His incomparably great power for us who believe. (Interestingly, the famous “wisdom” verse is set in the context of trials producing steadfastness to our faith. You should read them sometime!)
Our Daddy-God has put so much on the line with us in this area of distrust that He attaches a strong warning against doubting and double mindedness. He wholeheartedly means what He says when it concerns His babies. The quicker we receive His heart toward us, the better. Let’s let Him love us well by leading us today. Needing wisdom? Ask your Daddy.
You are so loved.
