Base your life and your getting things done each day on Him. Keep focused on Him on this fight here for His Truth and Love because He has the power and the tools that you need to get things done. This is His Plan after all, so rest in Him. Each day wake up with that continued faith and trust in Him, not even yourself, because you can so easily get distracted in the flesh. Even if you are going through trying times, are sad, down or just not as motivated, get that renewal of strength by sticking with Him. The key is stay in the Word so He can communicate to you what it is that He has you to do. When you are wondering where He is, He is right there. He never stepped away anywhere. It is you that has not kept that contact and focus on Him so that you can be ready to be there for Him.
His Word is that meat and truth that you need to eat from each day and not your own thoughts, feelings and wants. Walk with Him and take of His meat as here in:
I Corinthians 10:1 “Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea.”
I Corinthians 10:4 “And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.” (KJV)
I Corinthians 10:5 “But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness.” (KJV)
Even those that came before during Moses time saw many miracles and had dear God walking directly with them, they still lacked faith and were overthrown by the ways of this world with doubt, fear and worry. That is why it is so important to keep in touch with Him so that you can enjoy that drink of His Water of Truth keeping your mind in exactly what your goal here is, that is to be pleasing to dear God, and sharing and giving of yourself so that those you love and He sends your way can see His truth. Be that vessel that He can use that is focused and clear in Him.
So talk with Him, ask that He forgive you of anything holding you back and remember to forgive yourself. For who are you that you cannot even forgive yourself compared to He that gave His Life through His Son, Jesus the Christ for you! That way you can be free and ready to move on to get His Will done.
Finally, let Him keep you up. Thank Him for that renewed strength and for always keeping you going.
Let Him be your meat day and night and your Best Friend keeping you safe, happy and really glad to be here fighting in His Plan of Love. Remember He already defeated death as here in:
Hebrews 2:14 “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;” (KJV)
So enjoy His victory today and keep fighting for your friends, family and loved ones so that the enemy, or the devil, does not deceive, take away, pull down or twist the well-being of those you love through Him. He knows you can do it and is routing for you right now for trying!
Thanks dear God for Your Love and Your Uplifting,
at Your service
