I was listening to some worship music while I was praying, and I began thank God for just being God in my life. He had reason to abandon me, but he didn’t. He kept me, even in my sin. We owe God our praise because he gave it ALL for us.
In light of all of this, we sometimes catch a case of amnesia. We forget about the many dangers, toils, and snares that we have already overcome because our present situation seems so unfixable. The Lord wanted me to release this word over his children:
Every storm you will encounter will eventually run out of rain. The storm was never intended to kill you, but to cause you to look at the leaks in your boat. Even when you were sinking, I had my eye on you. Let me develop this good work in you. It might not feel good and you may feel animosity towards me, but I am well equipped to handle your frustration. Trust Me, you will understand it all when the morning comes.
“Remember my affliction and my wanderings, the wormwood and the gall! My soul continually remembers it and is bowed down within me. But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness,” Lamentations 3:19-23.
