Have you ever been just going along in life and all is good, then, BAM, out of nowhere you get hit with a situation and it literally takes your breath away?
A great word picture is seeing a kid riding his shwin bmx bike down a street and the evil neighborhood kid throwing a stick in the front spokes……..over the handlebars we fly..thud, thud, thud is the sound as he hits the pavement.
WHAT JUST HAPPENED?
WHAT AM I GOING TO DO?
GOD, WHAT DO I DO NEXT?
All the questions start to fly as emotionally, and maybe even physically you shriek in pain.
It is almost like someone ran up behind you and popped your balloon.
Today, right now, Jesus desires you to know that He has not left you, He has not abandoned you (Matt. 28:20b,….and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.).
YOU ARE NOT ALONE, and do not allow discouragement to start to seat.
Discouragement means that you believe that there is no hope, or no way through the hurt and heartache. It is the opposite of encouragement, and it attacks, and can eliminate our COURAGE.
Don’t allow that emotion a place in your life. It is NEVER from Jesus.
Why are you cast down, O my soul?
And why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him
For the help of His countenance.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
LIFT UP YOUR HEAD AND HEART – YOU ARE GOING TO MAKE IT!!!
JESUS IS PRAYING FOR YOU, AND GOD IS WORKING THIS THROUGH!
DO NOT LOSE HOPE, DO NOT ALLOW YOUR COURAGE TO BE STOLEN!
KEEP THE FAITH – HE IS FAITHFUL!!
