“I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever; with my mouth I will make known Your faithfulness to all generations.”Psalms 89:1
Gods mercies are new each day, but we should not keep them to ourselves. We need to talk about the faithfulness of God. God is faithful when we are not. God is faithful when we are in need. God is faithful when we don’t have a clue what to do. In order to recognize the faithfulness of God, you have to know what it is. When you know what His faithfulness is like, then you will always look for it in every area of life. Your present Situation does not determine the faithfulness of God…he is always faithful. In order for every generation to recognize his faithfulness, you have to talk about it.
What we sing about…some sing love songs, some sing depressed songs. Whatever we sing about, point to what we are focusing on. Why not today, sing about all the faithful things God has done in you and for you. Let the world know around you what God is doing. I know we are all a work in progress and we are all at different points on the journey…but today is a good day to sing about His faithfulness.
Lord help us to simply see your hand…your faithfulness in all that we do! Open our eyes and help us to recognize your faithfulness and may we open our mouths and sing about your faithfulness, so all generations will be able to see it as well.
“For this reason we do not lose heart: Even though our outward man is perishing, yet our inward man is being renewed day by day. Our light affliction, which lasts but for a moment, works for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 MEV
In light of a horrendous day of moving with a crew that was incredibly unprofessional, this is what Gid is saying to when I was about to lose heart and my mind…don’t lose heart!
Don’t lose heart. So many things can happen in this world that will cause you to lose heart. The opportunity to lose heart is real…but what we choose to do will enable us to be who we are destined to be. We were born for so much more than the present affliction or the present situation. We were born for great things! Our inward man is being renewed day by day in order to overcome what we see and what we feel. So don’t focus on the temporary, the junk that is right in front of you. This too shall pass! Focus on the eternal unseen God! He is the one that has a plan for you and for your life. Learn from affliction, learn from pain and allow the presence of God to equip you and allow your righteousness to shine!
Jesus today is a new day. Today I am not going to focus on the junk in front of me, but rather the treasure that lives inside of me. I choose to not lose heart and fix my eyes on JESUS!
