So many people live their lives out as if a funeral dirge or something were playing in the background. They whine about not having this, or how that didn’t work out. Whine, complain and whine some more! We can miss out on so much right now while longing for what might come later on or what we hope to come (home, job, church, school, health, finances, personal relationships, etc). Don’t go there. God talks about songs of deliverance and victory…not death and destruction! Read Matthew 6:19-34. If the birds and lilies are well taken care of, how much more then are we!
But we miss it sometimes, don’t we? We miss the awesome while waiting for what we think will be the fantastic. Don’t be fooled any longer.
Jeremiah 7:23 tells us, “But this is what I commanded them, saying, ‘Obey My voice and I will be your God, and you will be My people; and you will walk in all the way which I commanded you, that it may be well with you’". Oh yeah, you want it “well” with you don’t you? Obey God and receive His good gifts. Remember, His good gifts could be improved health, peace in your heart during troubled times, safety while traveling and a myriad of other things that we forget are ever so awesome.
So just be aware of and enjoy the awesome you have now, so when you are asked how you are doing…you can reply…FANTASTIC! Endure the fire...it's producing pure gold!
