The LORD always has your redemption on His mind.
He remembers the anxiety you had when you lost your job. He remembers the times of despair of not having the money to buy food for your Family. He remembers when you had no means to pay for the repairs for your car.
He remembers the times when your friends kept their distance from you when you needed some help.
But He also remembers the Glory you gave Him when you were hired at a job interview. He also remembers the praise and worship you gave Him when food was brought to your home even though no one really knew you had no food in your house for your Family.
He also remembers the praise you gave Him when a brother in The LORD paid for the repairs on his car so that he could give it to you.
He also remembers the day you were called about a car that was being given to you when you had no means to obtain one.
Though the enemy come in, like a flood the Spirit of the Lord will raise up a standard against him.
The things you experience in your life are not so much about you.
It’s all about Him.
This does not portray that you don’t mean anything in how He does things in your life. For apart from Him, we can do nothing.
For Jesus is the assurance of things hoped for. He is the evidence of things not seen. He is the Author and the Finisher of your Faith.
All of these things take place so that the Lord can say of you: “You have a little strength, yet you have kept My Word and have not denied My Name.” (Revelation 3:8).
