As we headed for Hot Springs yesterday afternoon we encountered multiple motorcycles heading that way as well. The yearly rally for all makes and models of motorcycles is on and people from many states will go there. Every parking lot will be full of vendors and shoppers. Motorcyclists will tell you it’s worth the effort to take time off and spend the money to attend.
Oh beloved, God is doing a work in the earth today. You’ve been hunting for something to satisfy your soul and perk your spirit. Every effort you have made to seek God’s face has been met with conflict. But don’t worry about the conflict anymore. Just set your face to seek Him. He is worth the effort. Everything you’ve ever wanted is found in Him. Danny has ridden motorcycles for many years, but he will tell you that if he never rode another bike there would still be the Lord to pursue. I will tell you that Jesus changes lives so completely that even the hard times have silver linings.
The Lord says to you this morning that He will lead you on the right path. He will take the things you are so very concerned about and turn them into pure gold for you. He says to you that what has come against you and kept you from pursuing Him with your whole heart will become stepping stones to Him. He says dare to make Him your focus and purpose and watch what He will do. He will give you the means and the energy to seek Him and give you help to find the will and way to get past the difficulties and arrive in His presence. You’re destiny is not the hardship you encounter, your destiny is Him. And He rewards those who diligently seek Him.
God loves you and He’s for you. Take time to run to Him this morning and thank Him for teaching you how to fight the good fight of faith. Even your hobbies and desires will either change or be glorified to serve Him through them! He is with you all the way as you live in the light of His Glory and Grace!
I Timothy 6:12 Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
2 Corinthians 6:7 We faithfully preach the truth. God’s power is working in us. We use the weapons of righteousness in the right hand for attack and the left hand for defense.
Philippians 3:14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
