Something I noticed on my short little trip to NC. When we started back for home on Saturday morning, Charlotte was covered with numerous clouds and there was no sun to be seen in the morning. Moreover when we checked the airlines' website we found that the weather in NY was bad too, and visibility was low (about <6miles). href="http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/6162/2097/1600/aboveclouds.0.jpg">
In our walk with God, sometimes the issues of life seem so insurmountable that we might feel this problem is never going to leave us. We might even start living with it. But you know when we keep believing in the Word of God and what God has to say about our situation and continue to press on, we will get onto the other side and find that the sun was always shining. If our captain of the aircraft would not have kept the plane climbing, we would have been flying through thick clouds the whole time, but I am glad he did. He continued to press on and let the plane climb until it was above the clouds, not just one layer of clouds, but 2 layers!!! (Yeah we went through 2 large layers of clouds). Its so, when we're believing God for a miracle, the Son is always shining up there. The captain was so sure that the clouds wouldn't be that thick and went on. Our Captain Lord Jesus, also knows for sure that the problems are only seemingly gloomy from down here, but not when you're up there, the real thing is, the sun is always shining, the clouds are temporary, the sun is permanent. God is always there, whether we can see Him or not. The hope is always full , whether we're hopeful or not. The faith will bring the victory, when we have the faith to go on higher with our Captain Lord Jesus. Psalm 91:1 says "1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. [a] "
Wow, thats the most beautiful thing I ever read, when we dwell in the shelter of the Most High, constantly building out fellowship with our God, constantly making an effort to remain in Him, no matter what, then we will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. Not the shadow of the clouds of darkness and gloom, but the shadow of the Almighty.....and so ..."2 I will say [b] of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."
Dear People of God, we belong to a Living God and to His Kingdom. Did you know what Jesus said to the people who were not believing when He did the miracles, when they told Him that He was casting out diseases using evil spirit..Matthew 12:28 (Whole Chapter) "But if I drive out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. " And we know Jesus did drive out demons by the Spirit of God and so we know the kingdom of God has come...and to those who believe, the secret of the kingdom of God has been given(Mark 4:11). Everything that we would ever need to overcome the cloudsof troubles in our life is in the Word of God, if only we will fuel ourselves and press on to build up our faith in God and know for sure and prove that "In God We Trust".
The outcome of it all.....Romans 10:11 (Whole Chapter) As the Scripture says, "Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame." [ Isaiah 28:16]
Romans 9:33 (Whole Chapter) As it is written: "See, I lay in Zion a stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame." [ Isaiah 8:14; 28:16]
1 Peter 2:6 (Whole Chapter) For in Scripture it says: "See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame." [ Isaiah 28:16]
So if there is something in your life, you're trusting God for, hold onto God as He takes you higher in fellowship with Him, up there spiritually where there is never a shadow of the cloud of doubt, but in the shadow of the Almighty and stay strong, because, YOU WILL NEVER BE PUT TO SHAME or LET DOWN FOR TRUSTING THE LORD.So take strength in the power of our Living God and His navigation of our life.
