I’ve been a lot of places in my life. Even out of the country. Well that’s a bit of a stretch and yet true. Staying with my sister and her family when my mother had surgery in the early 60’s, she lived near the border with Mexico. And just so happened, we went across the border and had supper at a restaurant there one night. I’ve been to the Grand Canyon, but I didn’t go out on the overlooks. I’ve been over the tallest bridge in Texas but again, it was hard not to just keep my eyes closed all the way.
Oh beloved, God speaks to my heart. Everyone has a story of their travels in life. God sees your whole life and He has been with you, even when you didn’t acknowledge Him. His faithfulness through your travels is the reason you are here today.
God wants you to know that He isn’t about to leave you now. Just as He was with David when things went wrong, He is with you. Just as He was with Jonah in the whale’s belly, He will keep you even in the worst circumstances. Every single step of your life is covered in mercy and grace. You’re not a product of hard times you endured. You are a representation of God’s amazing faithful watchful care for you!
Every morning you wake up you can either remember things from the view of victim or victor. You can ask God for a fresh vision of your whole life. You can also ask Him for a fresh vision of this season our country is in. He will bring forth insight as you ask for it. He will grant you wisdom as you reach out to Him. He loves to give dreams and visions, especially in these last days! What a wonderful time to be alive and what a beautiful view you have within you!
God loves you and He’s for you. He’s not asleep while all this chaos is trying to take over. He’s not winking at sins nor is He ignoring the pleas of His people who are interceding even now for this great nation. Run to Him this morning and thank Him for where you’ve been, how you’ve made it and where you are going with Him. And live watchfully alive with your eyes on the King as you walk into your future with peace!
Isaiah 46:4 Even to your old age I [the Lord] will be the same, And even to your graying years I will bear you! I have done it, and I will carry you; And I will bear you and I will deliver you.
Isaiah 63:9 In all their distress, He too was afflicted, and the Angel of His Presence saved them. In His love and compassion He redeemed them; He lifted them up and carried them all the days of old.
Psalm 32:6-7 Therefore let all the godly pray to You while You may be found. Surely when great waters rise, they will not come near. You are my hiding place. You protect me from trouble; You surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah
Romans 8:38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.
