Look for the Lord while He may be found. Call upon Him while He is near. Let the sinful turn from his way, and the one who does not know God turn from his thoughts. Let him turn to the Lord, and He will have loving-pity on him. Let him turn to our God, for He will for sure forgive all his sins. Isaiah 55:6-7 NLV
I wasn’t going to post today because it’s Christmas Eve and I wanted the day off. But as I began thinking of all He’s done for me, I had to grab my laptop and type this out so that others can remember as well. There is no ‘day off’ in the Kingdom. He simply never stops working on our behalf.
He is our Liberator, the one who set us free from the law we could not keep. He’s our Hero, saving us from sin and death. He’s our Salvation, the rock on which we stand. He’s our Defender against evil accusations. He’s our Guardian, always watching over over us. He’s our Protector, as a shepherd watches over the sheep and keeps the wolves away. He’s our Conservator, repairing the broken and doing maintenance on us. He’s our Deliverer, turning back over to us the authority Adam had forfeited long ago. He’s our Rescuer, freeing us from confinement, violence, danger, and evil.
God had a plan from the beginning and centuries later, we are smack dab in the center of that plan. There’s no detail He’s overlooked. No plan or scheme the enemy could surprise Him with or catch Him off guard. You may not understand it all, but you weren’t meant to. Leave the details to Him and trust Him.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not trust in your own understanding. Agree with Him in all your ways, and He will make your paths straight.
From our house to yours, Merry Christmas and may God bless you and keep you and use you for His glory today.
