Breakthroughs Do Come
May our Lord Jesus Christ and God our Father,
who loved us and in his special favor gave us everlasting comfort and good hope,
comfort your hearts and give you strength in every good thing you do and say.
2TH 2:16,17 (NLT)
So much is happening in our lives. I heard TD Jakes say this morning never in his entire life has he seen such dire economic times. We are all living with this reality of a tough time. The plunging stock market, our tight paychecks and absent retirement plans are resounding indicators that we can’t place our trust in chariots or men. There’s such an economic burden on families that it’s bursting the fabric of an already frayed institution. What is that you ask? Why it’s our precious families? The cost of living is sky rocketing, our kids are faced, no they are bombarded with such demonic messages with perverse undertones in videos, slick advertisements, and dare we not leave out the internet. Oh there’s good to be learned and appreciated in our techno savvy world, but daily we all face the challenge of staying afloat and holding on to vestiges of our humanity, upholding our sanctity for life, reverence for God and yes our sanity in really a very insane world.
I heard someone say: “But God!”
I thank God that Wall Street, nor the negativity that attempts to penetrate our airwaves, our lives and ultimately slips under our door ceils, can monolopolize our Hope.
As I zoomed down the highway I witnessed a stream of sunlight breaking through the gray puffy clouds. I knew that moment was for us. Hold on to your faith and remember that no matter the gray and dreary predictions that’s not the final authority/word. The Son of God JESUS and the SUN/the fruit of the spirit: (faith, joy, peace, love, [victory], [patience]) can penetrate our lives! The Son Of God is our protector; God’s word is our sword and shield.
As for God, his way is perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection. For who is God except the Lord? Who but our God is a solid rock? God arms me with strength; he has made my way safe. He makes me as surefooted as a deer, leading me safely along the mountain heights. Psalm 18:30-33
I’d like to believe that this is another moment to stop and reflect on how faithful and sovereign our Lord and Savior is. There is an everlasting hope, a change agent a rock of Gibraltar which will anchor us, shore us up and beacon us to His green pastures and we can take heart that a breakthrough is eminent! Just you wait and see; the sun does surely shine!!!
