1 Peter 1:13 -
Dear Friends: If you are in what looks for all intents and purposes to be an impossible situation, feeling hopeless, and ready to give, up I encourage you to rise up in your inner man and turn to the Lord that you might find grace to help in time of need. You may be in the greatest trial of your life but our God is able to deliver you. You may be facing untold heartache and loss, leaving you broken, alone, searching for answers, and wondering if God is even aware you exist anymore. Beloved, He is not only aware but is standing at the door of your heart waiting for you to invite Him in, waiting for you to cry out to Him in your darkest hour that He might come and help you stand again. Roger Housden puts it so profoundly in his following statement:
“When we fall utterly, something gathers us up. But our falling must be without reservation, without expectation, without hope, though not hopeless. You can't plan that kind of falling. When you abandon yourself utterly to life, the river will flow, and the log jam will free. Impossible is another word for grace. Who would've thought it, life takes another turn, and you are gathered up into a whole different way of seeing and being.” Roger Housden
Yes, my friends, your life may be taking some unexpected turns but it is not the end, for God can give you a whole different way of looking at the things and situations that may be causing you such pain. Often times our perspective has become rather skewed and our peripheral vision narrowed by tunnel vision. At times we become so introspective we are only able to see our failures and shortcomings rather than solutions. God is able to open our life-
So never give up, dear ones, for He can give you a whole new way of being. Just coming into His presence and allowing yourself to feel His love can soften the harshness in your dark night of the soul. Just calling out to Him in your midnight hour and feeling the warm embrace of His loving arms beneath your weary soul and broken spirit can awaken you to a new and better way of living and loving. If your way is not working then look to Him for a whole new way. The kingdom of God is within you and the Bible promises in the word of God are for “whosoever will”. Whosoever will may come and whosoever will may partake of His great and precious promises. May that be you today!
Yes, the spiritual journey is the most blessed part of life. Scripture gives us words of hope, common words made holy by the Holy Spirit. Living by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ changes our impossible into possible. His grace is freely given to all who ask Him into their hearts. Precious ones, know today that the promises in scripture are in essence words of inspiration, words to motivate you to trust in Him and deliver you from the deepest of pits. He is not only willing and able, Jesus died to save us. Jesus died that we might have life and have it more abundantly. There is no greater love to be found this side of heaven. So I invite you to fall into that great grace today. Abandon yourself utterly to the great life He has in store for you, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. Go with His flow and receive a whole new way of seeing and being.
Grace and peace be multiplied unto you!
