“Poppa, I don’t know what to do.” Tears streaming down my cheeks. “I’ve done all I can do (with this situation).” Now crying uncontrollably, I heard my Father clearly instruct: You dig in harder daughter. You trust me and you don’t quit. You see, I’m still trying to dig out of a mess left behind from last relationship. It was not only emotionally damaging, but financially as well. I’m finding the enemy was attacking me from every direction and it just feels like I’m never going to recover, but the devil is a liar. As I sat down to read, my Poppa brought me back to Psalms 42 (as He so often does). “Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and [why] art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him [for] the help of his countenance.” Vs 5 I could almost hear my Poppa saying daughter, why art though cast down?
Tonight I noticed verse 5 says, “I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.” and verse 11 says, “I shall yet praise him, [who is] the health of my countenance, and my God.” Then I reflected on what He spoke to me this morning. Dig in harder to Him, trusting Him. God is the health of my countenance. My tears began to dry and joy started to spring forth as I realized it’s okay that I don’t have everything figured out, that I don’t every detail placed back into order or in it’s perfect place. God is in the middle of the chaos. He is rearranging the pieces for my ultimate good and His glory. Patience daughter, my timing. *** smiles *** Something else I hear so often from my Father. Why art thou cast down? I’m praising God for His presence and constant reminders when I start to get overwhelmed. He is the health of my countenance, and my God. Hallelujah, thank Yiu Jesus. Are you cast down? Read Psalms 42 and praise the Lord as you come up out of it! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
