The pressure of life is relentless at times. The enemy never rests, he is constantly attacking all that I hold dear. I am engaged in a battle that is far to much for me. Alan Redpath says this-”never act in a panic, never allow your emotions to dictate your actions, but at that moment of desperation force yourself into the presence of God, and wait there until you have a Word from the Lord. Cry out to Jesus for mercy. Wait upon God until He makes His way plain. Never let anything or anyone drive you from the wounded side of Jesus.”
Often our lives seem like a thousand disassembled pieces of a jigsaw puzzle– confused, disoriented, senseless, tragic. But God is in the details… carefully, wisely, in His way, and in His time, putting the pieces together to form a complete and perfect picture. If He can turn the agony of the cross into an empty tomb, and ultimately our salvation, Jesus can certainly manage the lesser trauma of our lives toward His ultimate purpose.
All of God’s dealings with you and me are designed with one supreme objective– TO BRING US TO THE END OF OUR OWN RESOURCES. Once that happens my friends- God opens up the gateway into victory and the stepping stone into blessing. God begins at that moment of complete surrender to accomplish His purpose for our lives!
Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6
