Have you ever been through a time when you feel like nothing is working? You pray, you work, you follow the “rules”, and do everything you know to do, yet you see all of your efforts going down the toilet . . . figuratively speaking, of course.
I know this is the one-yard line. The touchdown is so close. (I am surprising myself with this football talk and I don’t even have a clue about how the game is played.) But I just feel like crawling under a warm blanket and staying there.
Wouldn’t the enemy love that?
I am reminded of Ephesians 6:13, “Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.“
It’s withstanding time. I have done all, and there is nothing else I can do but stand. I know God’s Word is true. I know that He is the Author and Finisher of my faith.
All God’s promises are Yes and Amen.
Hmmm . . . reminds me of a song we sang in church on Sunday (thanks Hillsong):
God says yes, and I know that I’m blessed
Yes, got a heart that’s at rest
Yes, and a future that’s sealed
Yes, if I’m healed then I’m healed
I’m not afraid of circumstances
‘Cause I, I’ve already found the answer
In Christ, all of God’s promises
Are yes – yes and amen!
Now’s the time to let faith win
God has placed His promises in the centre of His will
Seek His kingdom and His ways
All the power of heaven is yours to call today
Look out – I’m headed for the end zone! And I have victory!
