IT SHALL BE WELL!
Are you feeling overwhelmed this new year? Does it look like help is far and hope is lost? Not so fast! Read the short below and be encouraged because we serve a God of unexpected open doors and comfort.
“The Lord opens His hand and satisfies
the desire of every living thing.”
Psalm 145:16 (paraphrased)
January is a hard month for many. There are rents to pay (shop and home), school fees and a lot of other stuff with scary deadlines. Many times, our savings (if we have any) aren’t enough and we seek help here and there, believing that favour will locate us. No matter the people we have talked to, our trust is ultimately in God.
“O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.” – Psalm 65:2
“1. Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens. 2. Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the Lord our God, until that he have mercy upon us.” – Psalm 123:1-2
But what if God isn’t coming through for us as speedily as we desire? Don’t believe the lie that He doesn’t care and don’t feel so desperate that in a bid to get by, you do something you might later regret.
After you’ve done all you can, leave the rest to God and whatever happens will be alright. If you ask for a reprieve and get it, thank God. If you don’t get it, thank God still. He is a Waymaker, He is a miracle-working God. You may not see how He’s working now, but in the end, you’ll see that every “Yes” and every “No” you received served an important purpose in your life.
If you have a liitle money tonight, buy something you like and eat it slowly (appreciating God with every bite). It is well! You are a winner! And your God is God!
