Christmas is here. I was thinking about the year that has been, I got quite discouraged reflecting on the things that I have been trusting God for that have not yet come to pass. Thankfully, God doesn’t close shop in December. He does not take a ‘Christmas break’; there is no ‘out of office’ reply to my prayers. No ‘Red Sea’ is too difficult for Him to part. He is still in the business of making a way where there seems to be no way.
Even as it is easy to get distracted by the presents, it is important to remember that the presence of Jesus makes ALL the difference. He IS the reason for the season
Do you feel like the year did not live up to your expectations?
Have you given up on God?
Do you feel like He has left you?
Keep trusting God, He is faithful. He is still in the business of changing hearts and performing miracles. He is present in every situation.
Isaiah 43:2c-3a NKJV
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you.
For I am the Lord your God,
The Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
This song is on heavy rotation in my house, it’s been encouraging me to keep believing even though I can’t see His hand clearly that I can always trust His heart. Indeed, He will never leave me nor forsake me.
May you be encouraged as well. May this Christmas leave you different, having encountered the Lord in a new way.
