Today was a quiet day of reflection on the things God needed to reveal to me in this journey I’ve traveled which seemed like forever. Not realizing when looking over the last year how much God has moved in my life. I realized there were some things he needed to perfect in me before revealing his ultimate plans for me.
All I could do was thank Him over and over for the journey even when I didn’t understand it. July marked one year I began making progress in my endeavors and thought because of my limitations I was not getting anywhere. When after reviewing my records, in actuality I realized God brought me a mighty long ways. I’ve made progress because of God’s divine favor. Today I’m rejoicing and looking forward to all he has in store for me. I’m praising God in advance for the victory.
People often say they are blessed not realizing the magnitude and power in their words. However, I am a living witness of the power of God’s Word. I am a living witness of how faithful and loving my God is, in spite of the many challenges I’ve faced over the years. Doubtful at times, feeling inadequate as though I could not be used by God. The devil is a liar and the truth ain’t in him! God is using me. I’m still standing.
I’m more than a conqueror. I am a victor, not a victim. I can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me. And when I say I am truly blessed, I know that I am. It is all because of God’s faithfulness. He’s my rock, my redeemer. Lord, I won’t complain. I will rejoice! I have been faithful over little things; assured greater is coming. “His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master’” (Matthew 25:23).
Praise God through the process. He’s preparing you. Don’t get weary in well doing. In due season you shall reap a reward. Greater is coming!
Be blessed! -JD
Psalm 145:15-19 “15 The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food in due season. 16 You open your hand; you satisfy the desire of every living thing. 17 The Lord is righteous in all his ways and kind in all his works. 18 The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. 19 He fulfills the desire of those who fear him; he also hears their cry and saves them.
