The story has always been that there are alligators in a small pond just outside of town. One of our daughters has made it a habit of going by that pond to scout out the possibility of seeing a gator since she was in college. Lately when we have lunch together we’ve gone out as well. Driving by and trying to see movement other than a turtle jumping off a log has proved futile.
But yesterday we decided to pull off the road and look closer. We even decided to get out of the car and walk to the edge of the pond. Would you believe it? We spotted a small gator swimming off near the far shore. We were ecstatic! Finally, after all the attempts and all the planning, we spotted the elusive reptile.
Oh beloved, God is real. He promises to reveal Himself to those who diligently seek Him. Don’t fear that you have wasted your time seeking His face, standing on His promises or looking for His answers. Even when you see no evidence of His presence you can be assured that He is with you! He may be speaking to your heart this morning: Get out of the car – get out of the box and let Him show you Himself in all His glory! He may say come to the water’s edge and put all your focus on finding Him. There are many things that will speak doubt to you but faith is your greatest ally! Doubt will give you nothing but uncertainty, hesitation and suspicion. But faith! Faith will give you confidence, conviction and assurance! Your faith pleases God and gives Him glory! Rejoice this morning that you can be a member of the Royalty of Heaven, a child of the King of Kings! A born again BELIEVER of God’s salvation along with His promises which in Him are always yea and amen! Keep seeking God even when things look bleak, even in the night, even on the rough roads, even when the waters are churning and your heart is about to faint. Remind yourself often that God’s Word says He answers, He blesses, He covers and He loves beyond your wildest imagination. His love is extended to you so that you can believe Him even when it all looks hopeless.
God loves you and He’s for you! Run to His Word this morning and read His Words aloud! Even if you’ve seen His handiwork before, He is calling you to a deeper walk with Him so that you can live and move and confidently walk into victory as you live in the Light of His wonderful salvation, mercy and grace!
