Love When God Speaks To My Heart!

After the post that I made last night, I got up this morning and this is my devotion for today. It’s from Jesus Today.

Lean on, trust in , and be confident in Me. The more challenging your life circumstances, the more you need to affirm -and lean on- your confident trust in Me. During difficult times, your natural tendency is to rely heavily on your own understanding. However, your human understanding is not up to this task; it will fail you time and again.

You have every reason to be confident in Me. I am the Creator and Sustainer of the universe, and I am in charge of every aspect of your life. Because the world is in such a fallen condition, it may seem as if I’m not in control. I could end all suffering instantly – by destroying the earth and taking My children home – but I am waiting to bring many sons and daughters to Glory.

So take heart as you live in this broken world, believing that My eternal purposes are being worked out through your difficulties. Your troubles are part of My majestic Master Plan, and they are achieving an eternal Glory that far outweighs them all!

Our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 2 Cor. 4:17

So cool how God just confirms what I’m feeling through His word and speaks straight to my heart! Another cool thing is that I’ve been studying this particular verse over the last couple of days and the Lord has really been teaching me so much. Maybe I’ll share some of what I’ve been learning in the next day or so! He is faithful and He is good!

Trusting His Plan,
Sandra, Katie, Emilie and Jacob

    Wow! What incredible perspective! I personally have been renewed in reading all of the scriptures that you share. I feel like you are mining jewels that I have never seen before or have never seen them applied so personally. Thank you for recording your journey through this valley of suffering. I am being blessed.

    That verse has been on my mind too, ever since you re-posted from Katie’s blog and I listened to the song attached, which quotes this verse. I love how the song reminds us that our pain is not meaningless.
