Spring has sprung. At least on the calendar.
I live on the East Coast and the weather this last few months has been quite eventful. If you enjoy the snow you are absolutely loving the weather we’ve had this season. It’s been super cold and extra snowy. But if you’re like most of us, you’re ready this craziness to end. And I have good news…
Spring has sprung.
At least on the calendar.
I was walking into work one morning this week in 23 degree weather and the thought came to my mind…isn’t it Spring? Well yes, of course it is. At least that’s what the calendar says. And then immediately two questions came to mind…why am I stepping over a mound of snow and why am I freezing?
I KNOW that it’s Spring even though I SEE snow and I FEEL cold.
It was right then that God gave me a revelation. I have to conduct my life very similar to how I handled walking into work that day. There are things that I have to KNOW, even though I see something or feel something that is contrary to those facts.
I KNOW that if God is for me then who can be against me. So when my circumstances try to dictate my life, I have to hold on to what I know.
I KNOW that He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. So when I don’t feel well or I received an unfavorable doctor’s report, who’s report will I believe?
I KNOW that when I fall into various trials, that I am to count it all joy because the testing of my faith produces patience. And when patience has it’s perfect work, I will be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
What is it you need to KNOW today? What are you seeing that you need to turn your eyes away from and look to where your help comes from? What are you feeling that you need to exercise your God given self control to overcome?
Each of us have situations in our lives that our feelings are trying to dictate. I implore you today to focus on what you KNOW and not what you feel. You can do it. And if you don’t yet know that you can, contact me and we’ll work together to find some scriptures to stand on.
