If you have been reduced to God being
your only hope, you are in a good place. ~ Jim Laffoon
Why is that?
Because as the old saying goes “When you are down to nothing God is up to something.”
When I finally started living for God I thought, “I am just going to take Him at His word. I am just going to trust and see if He comes through.”
What I found was that He always, ALWAYS made a way where I thought there could be no way.
There were too many “coincidences” for them to not be “miracles.”
So these days when I find myself in a position of needing God to come through, or it all seems to be falling apart, I tend to freak out a little first (though those periods are getting shorter and shorter), before I remind myself of how good God is. How He has never let me down before.
And then it hits me,
I start feeling over the top EXCITED!!!
I am so freaken excited right now because I need to see God come through in a huge way and I know that He will!!!
As the Bible says in Ephesians 6:13 we are to do our part and “after [we] have done everything, [we are] to stand.”
And I believe that He wants us to stand, waiting with expectant hope.
What miricale do you need to happen? Do all you can do and then stand!
And while you are standing, waiting excitedly for God to do something amazing, tell others about your journey.
The world needs encouragement but more than anything they need God.
They need to know him as their loving father who will never leave them.
When you allow the joy of the Lord to turn to excitement you are like a lighthouse standing on a hill. People cannot help but notice.
And when He comes through for you, Talk About It!!!!!!
Do not hide your light!!!
