A.W.Tozer once said, 'Everything is wrong until God sets it right.'
God needs to be involved in everything to get out the best of it and even if it be a burial procession as stated below, God's touch can rejuvenate, can create a new hope, can restore life.
'Then He came and touched the open coffin, and those who carried him stood still. And He said, “Young man, I say to you, arise.'
Luke 7:14 (NKJV)
after Jesus had said that wonderful statement, this is what happened...
'So he who was dead sat up and began to speak. And He presented him to his mother. ' Luke 7:15 (NKJV)
I believe with much blessed experiences did David boldly say this in the most famous Psalms 23...
'Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. ' Psalms 23:4 (NKJV)
Yes!!! We need to reach a point where nothing, no one and no adverse circumstance can ever deter or waiver our faith in the Lord our God.
Jesus made it very clear when He said this....
'....without Me you can do nothing.' John 15:5 (NKJV)
having firmly believed what God said, Paul boldly stated this...
'' I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. ' Philippians 4:13 (NKJV)
David's song again encourages us when he sang...
'For by You I can run against a troop;
By my God I can leap over a wall.' 2 Samuel 22:30 (NKJV)
There have had been many occasions when we might have been disappointed by what we have done, however going forward can we involve Jesus in all we do, can we at first pray and seek God's guidance, can we tell Jesus to lead the way and help us walk in the right way and take right decisions.
This is not just another way of doing things , rather this is the best and perfect way, with God leading us, we will never be disappointed, we will never have to regret.
