Tuesday Tidbit: Everything for Our Good

Have you ever hit one of those points where you just have to throw you hands in the air and say "okay now what?" I definitely have, especially recently. We're all human and it's so easy to be lead by our flesh rather than our spirit, and I'm so guilty of that at times. When I get to those points where I'm listening to my flesh, that's when I face disappointments.

The normal every day is hard sometimes. But, God is still God and He is still good. The only way to get through a weird, tiring, trial filled season is total reliance on the Lord — the only way. Worldly comforts will only be temporary, so why rely on them when we serve a faithful Lord who's comfort is always provided and never disappoints?

"But as for me, I know my Redeemer lives, and He will stand upon the earth at last" (Job 19:25).. "And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and who are called according to His purpose" (Romans 8:28).

The biggest lesson I've learned recently, is that if I want to live a blessed life, I cannot give up on the God who has never given up on me. It's as simple as the truth provided in 2 Corinthians 4:16-18, "Therefore we do not lose heart, though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes on not what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."

I’m constantly learning & re-learning what it means to fully trust. To trust that Jesus loves me despite my good deeds, my acts of service, how often I have quiet time or pray. He loves me simply because I am his child, nothing can every separate me from that love. Friend, I hope you find comfort in that truth. You are so loved and so cherished. Walk in that confidence today.
