😎🐫🎤 Christ’s peace be with you. “It may look like I’m surrounded, but I’m surrounded by You.” and Jeremiah 17:7 “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord.” These are a couple lines that could describe my past week. It has felt as if the spiritual forces of evil have been testing my trust in the Lord; just waiting for the slightest bit of doubt to bust open a crack that they could make a home in. I really don’t recall ever repeating a scripture so much to myself as I have this past week with Jeremiah 17:7. More specially the last part of that “…whose trust IS THE LORD.” From time to time we all find ourselves in situations that we don’t want to be in and wonder; How in the world did I get here? As challenging as the moment may seem, take a deep breath and look for God’s undeniable fingerprints. Because of a human error, I find myself in a place “I should have never been”, if it hadn’t been for God’s hand in it. Just as the Angel Gabriel encouraged Mary in Luke 1:37 when he presented her with God’s will for her to be the mother of Christ, we should also be encouraged, “For nothing is impossible with God.” Looking back, there is no denying God’s presence all along the way. So then, why should I start doubting His presence now? “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord.” Bless others and be blessed.
