No tears, not to today. I sat on my bed just gazing at the snow falling silently listening to praise music. This morning in my Bible reading the Lord took me to Philippines 1:6, “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:” He has given me a vision and a dream and the devil can’t have it. He has started a good work in me and He will complete it.
The enemy loves to try to fill your mind with the negative thoughts and this would be where he whispered, you should be crying now. I continued to watch the snow fall, I’m not opening that door. Fear can’t abide here, God is in control. Philippines 2:13, “For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.” It’s not His pleasure for me to live in worry and fear causing unbelief. No, the vision and dreams I have aren’t just mine; God instilled them in me so He will give me what I need to fulfill ALL of them.
My thoughts are focused, God has heard my prayers and it is finished. I just have to do my part, that includes casting out worry, fear, and ultimately unbelief. Philippines 4:6 “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” He knows my heart, my desires, and He planned my destiny. My prayers are in His hands and aligned with His will. Philippines 4:7-8, “7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. 8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” I will think on these things and devil will have to flee.
I continue to watch the snow fall. No tears, not today. I draw my strength from my Father and things of this world can’t detour me. Philippines 4:13, “ I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” As I gaze out the window, that precious peace that passeth all understanding covers me. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
