Today was kind of a rough day for me.....I mentioned in another post that I have been seeking God's divine purpose for my life. I know that the enemy does not want this to be fulfilled, so he will do whatever he can to cause confusion. Confusion can come in the form of distractions:death,sickness, sadness....Anything that the enemy can use to keep us from focusing on God. The word of God warns us the enemy wants to destroy us.....COMPLETELY!
"The thief comes only to steal kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life,and have it to the full."
Knowing what I know about forces that aim to kill God-given purpose, I know that I must remain prayerful and obedient to the will of God. Today, many of the things that I have been uncertain about lately seemed to cause much discord between me and one of my loved ones. I felt sad and frustrated, but in my spirit I just wanted the Lord to give me peace about the situation.
A scripture that has always resonated in times like this is Proverbs 3:5-6 : "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him,and he will make your paths straight." I Trust that God has my best interest at heart. I will continue to seek him in all that I do.....You should try it, hasn't failed me yet!
Peace and Blessings,
