Doing You WELL Wednesday (HANG IN THERE!)

Hello Victorious Friends!

Today, I assure you that God, who is our Alpha and Omega, has been with you and has seen your situation from the beginning. Because of this, according to HIS WORD, you have already come out on top. Your mission has already been completed. You have already reached the finish line - by faith. Therefore, as you are going through, understand that where you are right now is temporary. The Psalmist said, "yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death." Notice the phrase, "walk through".

Not stuck in -

Not abiding -

Not dwelling -

"Walk through" assures us that we are moving. How are we moving? We are moving and walking by faith and not by sight.

For, it is in HIM that we live, we move and we have our being! (Acts 17:28)

I am reminded of the three Hebrew boys in the firey furnace. They had been bound and thrown into an overheated furnace . God chose to bless them in spite of this. The plan of the enemy was aborted. It did not come to pass! When the morning came, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were found walking around in the firey furnace - loosed and alive!

They didn't smell like smoke.

They didn't have any burn marks.

They had no ashes on their countenance. Remember, God told us in Isaiah that He would turn our ashes into beauty.

My victorious friends, I encourage you to keep living and moving by faith. Although the blows may be coming at you - from the left and from the right, DO NOT give up! Remember, God has great plans for you! (Jeremiah 29:11)

  1. I relished these words of encouragement tonight, friend. Right now, we're in the middle of an ongoing situation we'd like to see improve, and it just seems like we're wondering in the dessert - waiting and waiting on God to move on our behalf. However, staying under the umbrella of His will is our number one priority. If His timing isn't allowing something to happen, there's a reason. Thanks for this reminder.

    XOXO,
    Meredith

    1. Meredith, sometimes( most times), we want God to move when we want HIM to move. But, HE does not always operate according to our time table. That is difficult for us to understand when we want things instantly.

      Praying and believing that God will strengthen you through your situation!
