Today I have come to remind you that when God steps into a situation, the outcome will forever change. I do not know what your battle is today. I just stopped by to remind you that you are not alone, and here is what I know without a shadow of a doubt. That when God steps into your circumstances, the outcome will blow your mind.
I stepped out this morning to run to the store, and as soon as I was outside, I was met with fog, not natural fog but the one that was leftover from the personal firecrackers that when off in my neighborhood yesterday evening. I was struck by the realization of the impact we as human beings have on this world. We do not know our power, but God does. He has given us dominion over the earth (Genesis 1, 26-28). As the sun rose, the fog dissipated and the smell remained for a while longer, and I observed the handy work of God, and how He had already put things in place to protect us from ourselves. The atmospheric balance was in full effect as the fog cleared, and the environmental balance was restored without any human interaction. This small but powerful lesson reminded me that many of us seemingly live fog-filled lives. We do not stop to acknowledge the balance that has been put in place by God. A great example of this balance is seen in (Isaiah 31: 4-5) “This is what the Lord says to me: As a lion growls a great lion over its prey and though a whole band of shepherds is called together against it. It is not frightened by their shouts or disturbed by their clamor, so the Lord Almighty will come down to do battle on Mount Zion and its heights. Like birds hovering overhead, the Lord Almighty will shield Jerusalem; he will shield it and deliver it, he will pass over it and will rescue it.” Our Father is all about balance and love, so He will never allow anything to distract Him from protecting His children. As it states in (Isaiah 31) even if a “whole band of shepherds is called together against it, it is not frightened by their shouts or disturbed by their clamor, so the Lord Almighty will come down to do battle..” So, no matter where you are today, trust and believe that God is working on your behalf to bring about a right end. If you are battling health issues, read (Psalms 107-19-20), if you are struggling with relationship issues read (Hebrews 13:5). And if you need a pick me up to read Lamentations 3 22-24 an excellent place to end today’s blog, “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassion never fails. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself; The Lord is my portion; therefore, I will wait for Him.” As we continue to trust God to bring about the balance and change in our fog-filled lives, continue to believe that when God steps in transition will occur for the better.
Continue to believe in your blessings, continue to be thankful and content, stay safe, know that you are loved by God, by me and many others that continue to pray for our world.
