The season is changed here where we live. The weather is cooler and the leaves are changing their colors. They display the artsy side of our God, the Creator.
Following to the changes, our family also been experiencing some changes. Our daughters took turn being sick for 3 weeks. Not yet recovering from taking care of them, then this week I got sick and on antibiotic for ten days. My loving and caring husband has to take care the three of us alone and has to go to work, too.
And this situations cause us to pospone couple of our meeting with friends who wants to hear more about the ministry in SEA*. We have to reschedule everything.
I am exhausted, discourage and weak. My soul is thirsty for eternal water. My heart longs for the divine refreshment.
God, the Heavenlh Father, always knows each of His children needs more than we ever know.
After lunch I took a break watching kids TV show with my Little Girl and then we read two Fanch Nancy books and she fell asleep in my arms. I carried her to her bed.
Sittin at my desk and I grab my iPhone and open the Bible App to read my mid-day reading plan. And here’s what the Lord says to me,
“Such things were written in the Scriptures long ago to teach us. And the Scriptures give us hope and encouragement as we wait patiently for God’s promises to be fulfilled.”
Romans 15:4 NLT
(read the verse online here)
I could find hope and encouregement from somewhere else now, but He speaks to me right away that it is ONLY in Him and His Word I will find what I trully need right now to go through every single circumstance.
God and God’s word is the only place we need to look for and first. Not our spouse, or children, or hobby, or job, or anything that this world offers us.
Do you need hope?
Do you need encouragement?
Turn off all distractions and read God’s word for you today. Grab your Bible, or tablet/smart phone that has Bible App on it. Open it. Read the Word that comea from the One who loves and cares so much for you. He always there to teach us, to communicate with us and wants to draw us near to Him.
Apart from Him we get nothing.
He is the hope.
He is the encouragement.
He is the one who will give you the faith and strength to endure in waiting for His fulfillment of His promises in your life.
Read His word.
My prayer for you as you read God’s living word today, His power will change you and He will reveals Himself to you.
God bless you abundantly and richly in Christ Jesus, our Lord and Savior!
