Dailies ~in His Word
May 2019

Sometimes life can get in the way of accepting what God has put before us. Whether it is enjoying something exciting at church or running in a 5K fun run, we can find it hard to keep moving forward when we don’t feel it. Sometimes we just don’t even feel like getting out of bed and going on with the day.

If we feel down emotionally, mentally or physically it can affect us spiritually. So what do we do when we feel like we can’t even do what we have before us? We figure out what the problem is and we seek God’s help, in His Word!

Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

We need to keep things in perspective; and remember that these things are only a small portion of our lives, not the entire lifetime. The pain, the annoyances, the life challenges that come at us from every side are here for a reason. We just need to figure out what to do with it; or what God is going to do with it if we just let Him take control!

I will lift up my eyes to the hills--from whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber.   Psalm 121:2-3
And remember it’s not only about us! It’s not just about what works for us, but its about furthering the kingdom of God so really what in the larger scheme of things does it matter if we don’t feel like doing a thing? If God is in it, just do it!
Heavenly Father, help us to keep things in perspective in life and know when it is time to fight through to the finish, in Jesus’ name. amen
