I have never blogged before and I hope I'm doing it right, but I just need to rant about the love we have in Jesus our glorious Saviour!!
His love is the grace we need to overcome everything that comes against us. His love is what we need to turn from our sin. The fountain of love that pours out from heaven is the power of the Christian walk.
As I spend time in the prayer forum and counselling forum, I see that this truth is easily missed. So many hurting Christians,so much tribulation. This life is far from easy, but it's in these times we need to look to Jesus, it's then that it's His will that you be engulfed in His glorious love! I wrote this on a thread today, and it's worth repeating here.
Praise God for His abundant mercy and peace! During a time of great trial and tribulation a few years ago, the Lord gave me Acts 16:25. I was in constant pain physically and everything that could go wrong in my life was happening. It was a dark, scary time, but my brother, when I did just as Paul and Silas did, my chains fell off!! When I praised Him in that storm, when I worshipped through the pain, everything changed! I went from feeling physically and mentally tortured by pain,grief,stress and worry, to resting in His glorious presence! I stopped pleading desperately for the Lord to change my situation, and started rejoicing that He could help me rise above it! I remembered that the Lord uses everything for my good! I remembered that He was holding me, and He would do great and mighty things through my situation!! It changed my walk with Him forever!!
I have walked through much tribulation, in fact I could rant about it, but I'd rather rant about the God who did just as He promised! I rather declare to anyone reading this, that He is able to raise you higher than that situation your in!! There is power in that so called bad situation. A broken heart offered up in praise to God, is something our glorious Lord will not resist! Worship Him with tears running down your face if you have to, reject what you see in the flesh, and focus on what you see in the Spirit!! He really will only allow what is good for us, for in the hard times, He is bringing us closer, and revealing Himself!
Seek Him my brother or sister, for He will raise you high above these temporary trials. Let the pain you feel draw you into His arms! My trial have not came to and end, for tribulation is never far from our door, but our merciful Lord has shown me what I must do. I take my eyes of my problems, my sickness, my stress, and I lay them at the cross. I worship our Lord in Spirit and in truth, through the pain, through the grief if I have to, for there is rest in that glorious place
All honor, glory and praise to our merciful Father and glorious Lord Jesus!!
May our awesome Lord open your heart to His all surpassing love, and may you worship Him n the heavenlies!
