Have you ever found yourself in need of an encouraging word even in the midst of a season of indescribable joy? Have you ever needed a word to bring hope for a future you couldn’t see even when you where sure of the One who holds the future? Have you ever needed assurance of more as you stood in the middle of more than enough?
I think as long as we inhabit this side of eternity and even on the best of days and in the most joyous of seasons there will be moments, days, weeks, months….even years like this. I think all our spiritual heroes both in the bible and in our lives experience the need for these things. I actually find that revelation comforting. We ALL need the Comforter.
I have questions. I have doubts. I want more. I need more. He has the answers. He holds the keys. He has MORE than enough.
I found myself in a place of need a few days ago that only He could fill. Well, I find myself there every day if I’m truthful, but that day this daughter was especially NEEDY of the things only her Daddy could provide. And He chose to fill me with hope and peace with words of life and promise and permanence.
Glory to glory
Strength to strength
These are my destiny. These are my calling. These are the promises from the One who has the whole world in His hands and breathes life into our lungs every…single…day. These define my yesterday’s, my today and my tomorrow’s with hope and power and love beyond myself or my circumstances.
What about you? What words is He speaking into your heart today?
