Stop spinning your wheels
No matter whether you are saved or unsaved, you can be certain you will face problems in life. Because we live in a fallen world we can expect trouble. But once you become a child of God, you have a tremendous asset in a loving Heavenly Father to guide you. He will strengthen you to face any problem you encounter.
* Today’s opening paragraph from Dr. Charles Stanley’s wonderful daily devotional book Pathways to His Presence.
Knowing that He is there is the whole ball game. Life is tough, it isn’t often fair and if you live for very long, you will get hurt and disappointed. People don’t play fair, and they will let you down, but He, never will. Once you start to understand that He is in control and that He is fully aware every second, where you are, and what is happening to you, you can start to relax a little. You can relax because the person that knows you so intimately and loves you so much is God, not a god but “the” God. He is the God that said, “I will never leave you or forsake you.” He is the God that said. “All things work for the good of those that love Me and are called to My purposes.”
He created the world you live in, raised the dead, restored sight to the blind, parted the red sea…… should I go on?
Those that come here, come because God brings them comfort and instruction, (I’m just typest). Maybe some come to see what the crazy man is sharing today, but there is just the chance they want to believes. I pray everyday that the people that read the words, that are written here, will come to know that it is true, God does exist, He does love them, and everything He has done would still have been done if there were no one else in the world but them……
So, if you know Him, and trust in Him, take a break, stop spinning your wheels, you can relax sometimes. He is always on duty. If you could ever rest in anything, it would be in His arms.
