Wherever we are, indeed God gives rest, gives peace to those who put his trust on him, and those who make His priority their own priority will never be in lack in strength, courage and provision.
Our strength comes from the Lord, our blessings come from him, we are able to love because of the one who loved us.
So many of us seek to be loved in the wrong places and wrong timing. We create relationships instead of nurturing ones we already have. Look around you, we have been blessed with work — a job were we can earn and have an opportunity to supply ourselves and our family, an opportunity to grow, to learn and take on higher ground, a family, biological or not, they give us better meaning in life, not all families are made the same, not all relationships are fruitful, but we can choose to rise up from our situation.
Life does not guarantee a pain-free experience, we cannot escape pain but we can choose to live every single day better and stronger, and there’s really no other way but to hear and heed to God’s word day and night.
Joshua 1:8, ESV “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”
Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”
