When I was younger in my teens I thought I knew everything, only to find out I didn’t know nothing. When I was in my twenties I thought I was unstoppable, only to find out that I wasn’t unstoppable for life dropped me right in my tracks.
When I was in my thirties I stopped lying to myself and realized I needed work done on the inside of my heart. It was at that point that I started taking the Lord Jesus seriously. I asked the Lord whatever you take away from me that not Godly replace it with something good otherwise I will be tempted to return to the ungodly, and help me to accept these new changes.
From that time to now I know the facts of the God in whom I serve. What I share with you today I pray that you will be blessed. Faith is a journey in which I found that in one day it could be easy to have while other days I was holding on a thread of faith. I know for a fact that I can rejoice in every moment that I am alive; the Holy Spirit has shown me that I don’t always have to see myself on the mountain top to rejoice. He’s showing me that there is nothing wrong with crying for it’s coming from my innermost sanctum for this is where He is ministering to me.
Fact that I know that Jesus is the Son of Man and that there is no other way that man will be saved accept through Jesus Himself. I know I don’t always get things right I miss the mark, but I know that my Lord will always stay with me. When times are difficult, and it seems like He’s not there that is when He is very close as close as my breath.
I don’t look to the world for my happiness neither do I expect the world to give me anything good, all the blessings that I have received in my life comes from my God. I’ve learned to not let people’s image of who they think I am make me their prisoner. My relationship with Jesus is outside the box and that is because I don’t keep Him In a box, I am in Awe of who He is.
I am living the bless life indeed, I can say without a doubt that I love who my Jesus has made me to be, it’s wasn’t easy for I fought it but even in that HE is so patient with me. When I needed to move and was afraid to do so, He took baby steps with me. Then there were times when He said I must let you sit here I know you never been here, but you are going to make it, this is teaching day. But don’t worry I am right by your side and I will catch you.
Life is hard and so challenging for us all, but there comes a point in everyone’s life that you must know truth and live in that truth otherwise you are not going to make it in this life. For me it’s knowing God’s word that is the only truth I live by.
I hope this devotional encourage you to look at your relationship with Jesus for the time is now that each of us make a declaration of what truth we will live by.
