Psalm 34:22 The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate. ~ The Lord is so faithful and kind. He not only ransoms us from the rule and dominion of the kingdom of darkness, but he brings us into his kingdom of Light. He causes his goodness, his mercy, and his love to abound to us. He doesn’t leave us in despair. He doesn’t allow us to stay in places of sadness, sorrow, and death. He doesn’t allow the effects of abandonment or neglect to stain us for life. No, He rescues us and redeems us.
Our lives are bigger than our moments. We have be careful that we don’t judge our life by the moment we are in. Each one of us goes through seasons of blessing and joy, but then we also go through seasons of challenge, seasons of grief and afflictions. But if we will choose to put our trust in the Lord, he will bring us into new life and restoration. So if you are in a challenging season right now and you feel like you are in desolate places, hang on. Our God is faithful! He will not leave you nor forsake you. Look for Him in your situation. If you will get your focus off how you feel or what it looks like, you will be able to see Him at work in the midst of your situation. He will cause his face to shine upon you bringing you into encounters with him.
Oh how I love Him! He amazes me how He can turn hopeless situations and wastelands into places filled with life and joy. How he can take a wasted piece of trash and turn it into something beautiful. His touch in our lives is unmistakable. I am so very thankful today for His gift of salvation and life that he abounds towards me.
