Grace and peace be unto you.
The journey continues…
God is good, there is no evil in Him. All his thoughts towards you are good. He wants to give you hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11).
Nearing the end of his life, King David reflected on his journey with the Lord and concluded that he had never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread. You might be facing a difficult situation and cannot see the hand of God or feel His presence, however the Bible says, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28). Be assured, God is working through your situation to develop a Christlike Image and accomplish His purpose.
He promised to instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; and counsel you with His loving eye on you” (Psalm 32:8). Then, why should you be concerned about your situation? Do you really trust Him? I recall travelling on airplane from Kingston to Miami and not being concerned if I would arrive safely to my destination because I trusted the pilots. Similarly, God is directing your life and is competent to guide you on the right path, hence, you can trust Him.
He will keep you in perfect peace when you meditate on His Word, because you trust in Him (Isaiah 26:3). If you are to succeed on your journey, the peace of Christ must be your constant companion. Some time ago, my mind was in turmoil about a particular situation and the Holy Spirit led me to a Scripture. I read the passage and then spent a few minutes in meditation. The turmoil slowly disappeared and was replaced by the peace of Christ that surpasses all understanding. The Word of God has supernatural power, it calms the anxious mind, revives the weary soul, gives hope to the hopeless, and wisdom to the unwise.
The Bible says, “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!” (Philippians 4:4). You can delight in the Lord because you know that your future is bright, He has good plans for you, and His thoughts towards you are good.
“Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well” (3 John 1:2).
