Think back to a time in your life when things weren’t going so great. Maybe you were going through some financial difficulties or a bad break up in a relationship, loss of a job, dealing with a difficult boss, natural disaster damages. Whatever it was, it was something that you agonized over for some time. You didn’t know if you would ever recover.
Now, meditate on that moment when God stepped into that situation and pulled you out! Go back to that moment when felt whole again, that breakthrough when God’s light completely shattered all the darkness that you were drowning in. Go back to the moment when you were truly able to laugh again, when you felt that overwhelming sense of love come over you, when you finally realized that everything was going to be ok, that feeling of relief. Remember how the tears of joy felt as they streamed down your face, that surge of energy that made you literally jump up and say, “GOD I THANK YOU!” That testimony that you have when you tell others, “I’ve always believed in God, but when He stepped in and did that, I knew there was no going back!” You lifted up holy hands, you danced, and sung songs of praise to the most High God. You wanted to scream from the mountaintops that, “Jesus is Lord!”
I just wanted to remind you that if He did it before, He will do it again!! No matter how big, no matter how small, no matter if there’s anything wrong at all, we should get up a give heartful shout of praise to God. Especially, in the happier times of our lives, when everything is falling into place and doors of opportunity are opening all around us; Give Thanks! Have your own sessions of praise and worship with Jesus. And especially in the times of sorrow and defeat, God is able, trust in Him not the situation.
Thoughtful Thursdays, thinking back to those times when you recognized that you serve an awesome God!
This Thursday’s Think On it verse comes from Isaiah 40:31, “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength: they shall mount up with wings as eagles: They shall run, and not be weary: and they shall walk, and not faint.”
