Given the past in this situation, it is logical that she would feel fearful! Oh how my
heart goes out to her!!
But you know how it is.... it is easier to see the "trees" when we are not in the
midst of the "forest" ourselves, isn't it?
So this morning as I was showering, I was earnestly praying for my friend and talking to the Lord about her situation. Suddenly He spoke,
"Tell your friend to ignore the
but instead to praise Me for
Whoooooa - What a powerful word!!
I could not call her fast enough!
As I was finishing getting ready, I felt like the Lord impressed on me that I needed to share
this here because a bloggy friend needs to hear this very word.
So here goes:
You, my friend, may be consumed with worry:
What if this??
What if that??
What if he does?
What if she doesn't??
What if God doesn't?
Friend, let me be the Lord's whispers straight to you:
"Do not spend even one more second on the 'what ifs?'...
because all that matters is 'What is'...
And 'what is' is that My promises never fail.
My promises do not end.
My promises do not expire.
My promises are trustworthy.
I do not promise and not follow through.
What is: I am trustworthy and my promises never fail.
I am the rock!
Though the waves of trial come against you,
I am secure.
I am faithful.
I will not fail you.
I am steadfast.
I will not leave you.
I am immovable.
I am the rock!
Not once in history did I go back on my promises and
I will not begin to now. That's 'what is'."
So dear bloggy friend, do not spend even a moment on the 'What ifs?'
That's 'what is'.
