Do you let your circumstances dictate how you view God?
Do you let you God dictate your response to the circumstance?
Lately I’ve been finding that I need to view God differently. Not the box I’ve put him in the last month or so. There are so many things he is doing that I could never comprehend.
Now when things arise, I stop and say how can I use this to give glory to God. It isn’t easy in the middle of the battle. But it does make me view things differently.
I’m in this world to be a light for Christ. I’m not perfect, I fail, I fall, I stumble and I trip. But I look to Christ and ask for forgiveness,grace and mercy.
I recently read a devotion in my Daily Bible App, (wish I could remember who to give credit) that talks abut Mom’s toolbelts. Do you have one? I know that I do.
For strength in the battle
being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might
so that you may have great endurance and patience,
Whoever is patient has great understanding,
but one who is quick-tempered displays folly.
“When a man’s ways please the LORD,
He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.”
These are just a few on my tool belt. I have verses scattered all over. I have some to help me with the boys. I have a few I pray over them. I want them to grow up trusting and relying on God to help them in their day.
Today I ask that you be a light in a world of darkness.
