Luke 1.37 – Nothing is impossible for God
Nothing is impossible for God for He makes a way where there seems to be no way. He is the way maker, the miracle worker, the promise keeper, the light of the darkness. As I entered into this week I didn’t really know what was going to happen, how I was going to manage. What life had in store for me. But God has a funny way about him (in a good sense). Last week, I was thinking that once I had time off that I would devote all my energy into looking for a job. But I heard God say Be still and know that I am God. Rest in me Hannah. So, I didn’t do anything. I spent a lot of time drawing closer to God, and catching up with old and new friends and it’s been really good for me. The time off, the rest. The break. I really needed this.
I was also questioning how I would pay my way through the month but I didn’t succumb to anxiety like I normally would. I put my complete and total trust in the Lord. Knowing that one way or the other He would supply for my needs and that is exactly what He did. Beyond my wildest imaginations. And I am so very thankful to the Lord for His grace and mercy on my life. For his provision. It has been such an eye opener. A lesson I learnt is when you put your trust fully on the Lord – He will surprise you in ways you cannot even imagine and I am thankful and grateful for the people He places in my life. I am so thankful that I can be a blessing to them and they to me.
Today, has been another good day. Another day drawing close to God, and knowing that God meets my needs beyond my understanding. As I look back over the last weeks, since entering the new year – I feel like I have grown spiritually thanks to the church I go to. I feel like I am growing and moving to the next platform. Understanding more of God’s mysterious ways and learning to rely on Him more rather than my own strength. I’ve learned over the years that often when you want to do things in your own strength – it will not lead you anywhere. But when you start placing your trust in the Lord, when you start surrendering every aspect of your life to the Lord that the blessings will come in multitudes. When you start earnestly believing in his promises and standing upon them, then only can you really start to see God move mountains. Before that your eyes will remain closed. Or not fully open and therefore you are missing God’s best for you. God’s got your back. Hallelujah.
And so as I grow in faith and continue to place my trust in the Lord, and surrender every aspect of my life – fruits will start to blossom. I am a whole new creation. Every day is a new beginning. A new chance to do what is right and to be a blessing. The old is left behind and the focus is on the new day ahead. It is well with my soul and I am filled with peace and joy. Truly very grateful for God’s goodness in my life. He is teaching me much.
I challenge you to surrender your life completely and fully to the Lord – and watch what He will and is capable of doing in your life. I dare you to live by faith and not in your own strength.
God bless you dear readers. Good night.
