Well Christmas came and went this year and I am almost one year older and one year wiser. Christmas had a special meaning this year to me. It seemed the atmosphere around us was changing and that God was really moving behind the scenes with favor towards His people.
Oftentimes, it is quite difficult to keep moving forward with our lives, our hopes and our dreams without being able to see a clear pathway to what God is doing, but I believe this is exactly what He is asking us to do; knowing He is working it out behind the scenes. Our faith determines our pathway oftentimes and we must keep believing that God's word is not only true, but just and righteous to keep us safe, keep us free and delivered and keep us moving ahead with the plans He has placed within us.
I don't know about you, but without God I am literally nothing. I have sinned, fallen down, messed up, gotten back up and resolved to keep moving forward on this road called life. Without the days ahead, we would never see our hopes and dreams come true. Don't allow the world around you or even your circumstances to keep you standing still or denying God's love for you, or worse yet, giving up and fallen back into the old way of thinking or doing things.
Step out today and ask God to help you believe. Step out today and believe Him at His word of truth. He will make HIs promises come to pass, it is up to you to be able to reach out in faith and receive those promises. So often, we get so bogged down with life, that we can't even see the miracles growing all around us. Don't give up and know that I am with you in your corner with encouragement. Keep moving and asking God for favor and deliverance of your people you are praying for and your promises will have to come to pass. God is just that good all the time and He has not forgotten us. His way and His being could never stop loving us, as we are His own creation of beauty. Believe He knows best and believe. The time to start is now.
