There are times in life when it all just seems too much, we think there has got to be a better way. This has been an overburdening year, and there seems to be a heaviness at every turn. Darkness is Fear and Oppression, the Peace of Christ is Love and Liberty. When Peter stepped out of the boat he tread upon the waves; as he kept his heart and mind on Christ Jesus. But the cares of this world (waves and winds) distracted him and he began to sink beneath the oppressive burden of darkness.
But He (Jesus the LORD) reached down His hand!!! Thank you Lord God that You are ever near, to rescue and to deliver. Peter was beneath the waves, how far down matters not! The Lords reach is not weak “for no thing Shall separate us from the Love of God in Christ Jesus”(Yeshua). Romans 8:34-39.
David knew how precious the love and presence of The Lord was and how it knew no bounds to Reveal His Strong Right Arm! Psalms 40, 139. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire (waves and wind), he set my feet upon a ROCK and gave me a Firm place to Stand. Where can I go from Your Spirit? Where can I flee Your Presence? He put a New Song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to Our God. Many will SEE and Fear and put their trust in the Lord.
Our struggles our trials take us to a place of dependency on the Living God and this is what gives the Testimony of His Great Love to those that that are still oppressed by darkness. Let others see our struggle, our faith, our praise of His Faithfulness. The Liberating Love and Peace of Christ overcomes and sets the captive free!
May The LORD of Heaven and earth Bless you all Richly!
