Glory Seed Devotionals, 2015: Year of Promise
Building on the “What if” game…
“Where are you LORD?” Is a question everyone of us have over the course of our lives asked. When the darkness of hopelessness does not lift, “Where are you LORD?” When the Peace of Jesus heads east and we’re heading west, “Where are you LORD?” When joy and happiness appear as the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, “Where are you LORD?” Are you in touch with past experiences? Are you in touch with what you’re now experiencing? Can you see the storm building up created by the question on the horizon?
If you know what I am writing about then the Psalmist (who asked “the question” before you) has another question for you to give consideration to. “What if the LORD had not been on our side? Let all Israel repeat: What if the LORD had not been on our side when people attacked us? They would have swallowed us alive in their burning anger. The waters would have engulfed us; a torrent would have overwhelmed us. Yes, the raging waters of their fury would have overwhelmed our very lives. Praise the LORD, who did not let their teeth tear us apart!” (Psalms 124:1-6 NLT)
There are times (and I have no answer to the why question) God chooses to work unseen and unfelt in the background but he so chooses. However, when we look into “times, rear view mirror” and see the LORD has been on our side all along we can (if we so choose) have faith that the storms of the present are destined to be the blessings of our tomorrows.
Believe! Anticipate! Experience! Be transformed!
Grace and PEACE, Amen!
