Hey, what’s up everyone!! So this week, I just wanted to encourage everyone around a couple of things. One thing is that God has His sovereign hand on our lives. That He desires for us to draw close to Him and in turn, He will draw close to us. I think God is saying to us that when we seek Him, we will find Him. I also want to encourage you all in that just because situations in life show themselves to be impossible to overcome, Jesus is right there being our firm foundation, and we can stand firm on the love and strength of Christ. Life can be very difficult and our situations can seem headed to doom, but God loves us so much that He may not save us directly from those circumstances, but He does promise us that He will be with us, guiding us through life’s hardest situations.
Overall, this life with Jesus is not easy, but it is an amazing journey. It is full of growth and God promises to never leave us or to forsake us. I think to Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. They were in the furnace because they wouldn’t bow down to the other gods. When they were in the furnace, God appeared with them and kept them from even having any hint of being burned. This speaks so loudly about God’s character, because He keeps us from being overcome by our circumstances. We can go through them with confidence that we have a Savior that reaches out for us to lift us up and that we can firmly stand and lean on Him through the storms. I hope this encourages someone out there!!!
