God wants to carry you
Scripture Reference: “For the LORD’S portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance. He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye” Deuteronomy 32: 9
Sometimes God carries us differently from the way He carries others. He will lead us beside ‘still waters’, where everything is going well, and at times He leads through the valley of the shadow of death and through the fire, but He is still there with us (Psalm 23, Isaiah 43: 2) You may have suffered untold hardship, rejection, abuse and the like, and can’t seem to understand why; allow God take over your tattered and broken life and I can assure you, that you will end up in greatness and honour. Let God carry you and lead you to that enviable destiny. God found Israel wandering in a dry land, with no hope and future but when God took over and carried him, he ended up in the heights of the earth, eating & enjoying the fatness of the fields; in other words, he ended up great. There are times that God will stir the nest and want you to leave your comfort zone, just for you to become the great man or woman, He destined you to be. It doesn’t matter how empty, stressful or hopeless your life seems at present, when you allow God to take over and lead you, you can be assured of a fulfilling and meaningful life. God’s plans and thoughts for us are not to grieve us or harm us but to give us a glorious future.
Daily digest: Read Psalm 28:8, Philippians 4:13, Isaiah 1:10, 2 Corinthians 12:9-10.
Prayer: Dear father, when I am weak, You are strong, and Your grace is enough for me, as Your power is perfected in my weakness. So, when I am feeling especially weak, I must realize only then am I strong because of You, for I have nothing to boast about except my weakness, but that’s how Christ’s power can rest upon me. Only in You can I endure because I have no chance without You, Amen.
