Except in a bad mood and away from God. That’s what I’ve learned the past few weeks. I doubted alot of things in my life-decisions I had made years ago, where I was in currently in my life (personally and professionally), and worst of all, God’s will for my life.
Psalm 30:5-For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.
That verse could not have come before me at a better time. Then the devotion that followed it was even more powerful. God may not remove the situation, but He will show me His powerful hand in it. And that is all I truly need. He will show me His faithfulness in any situation if I am diligent, prayerful, and walking in His Word. I need to stop relying on myself for so much. I leaned on God for a big decision in my life and He showed me where I was needed and where He wanted me for the now. I should not doubt what God does in my life. Doubt is manifested by being away from God and letting Satan pick at me and my fears.
Now God is presenting me with new things I need to work on in my life. A major one being my reliance upon money. God’s showing me more and more what He asks and expects of me and I need to be obedient to His will. I know this is a HUGE struggle for me, even before the recession hit, but I know that if I rely on God and give to Him in the way He asks I will have more financial freedom than before.
