I won’t say Happy Monday. It is actually Sunday, just before noon and I’m doing this a day early because I don’t know when my next chance might be.
As I write, we are waiting on the arrival of Hurricane Irma. Along with that comes a high risk of tornadoes. We have prepared as much as we know how and are at peace.
I will spend a good portion of the day in prayer. There are many who are not prepared and couldn’t leave. I pray God’s protection for them.
Sometimes, we tend to ask God a lot of questions, and sometimes, we just ask “why”? Not just with hurricanes and tornadoes, but with health issues, family issues and so many other things.
Sometimes, I can see the answers to my prayers. Oftentimes, when my question is “why”, I will think of various scriptures. When it comes right down to it, we don’t have to know why. God knows and my faith convinces me that His knowing is enough. Maybe we will understand it “all bye and bye” and maybe we won’t care at that point. I know God’s infinite wisdom and plan is bigger and better than anything I could even imagine!
As we look around us, there are hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, fires and very serious political issues. Why? I don’t know. Is it signs of the end? I don’t know. What I know is what the Bible says and the Bible says we won’t know, just watch for the signs.
What is waiting for His children is infinitely more than anything I can even dream of. So, whether it is my health, my wealth or this hurricane, my faith is in HIM!
In His light,
The Daniel Plan
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine. —Ephesians 3:20
Change can feel daunting at times, depending on whatever challenges we face. Whether the change involves improving our health, addressing our weight, trying to eat or move in a different way, improving our mental focus, or deepening our faith, the key is to rely on God’s power working in our life.
This is the secret to a faith-filled life. It’s not in doing more. It’s not in rising to the occasion every time. Instead, we say, “God, you’ve promised a power greater than mine, and I’m asking you to show up and show off in my life.” Then we step back, watch what he will do, and let him have all the glory.
What do you dream that God would do through your life? If it seems impossible, that’s okay. It should be impossible in your own strength. Let yourself dream, and let your dream motivate you to rely on his power more and more as you get healthy. You’ll be amazed to see how far beyond your imagination God can go.
Food for Thought: We cannot imagine all that God really can do through his mighty power in us.
