Good News

I wanted to encourage you in your walk today. Regardless if things are going great or you are struggling, know that God is there with you.  For me, I was totally encouraged by this paragraph below that I read from a devo today that just gave me such a smile and Joy in my spirit that I had to share it.

What I want to do First is read this book A Cloud of Witnesses. Second thing I want to do is sing praises to God knowing that He is always right by my side in the good and the bad…ALL the time!

For us as Christians, I think it gets hard some times when you can’t see God physically or as the paragraph above notes “in life’s darkest hours” we don’t think he’s there.  But as scripture and our forefathers that have gone before us know, we need to trust on God’s promises for our lives and not solely on our experiences.

I won’t give pass to our experiences and how important those are in our daily walk with Christ. However, if you are relying solely on them or even feelings, well that’s a whole other problem that we must overcome as believers and furthermore trust God’s revealed Word in the Bible over them.

With that I want to encourage you to keep reading God’s word and what he says to us as believers. Know that we do have such a great cloud of witnesses that have gone before us that have paved the way for us to be here in such a time as this.

Glory be to God.

Amen.
