Missing the Point
Thursday, August 31, 2017
Good grief people, the sky is not falling, and there will always be evil in the world. Somehow we are totally missing the point of what it is we are to do in every situation. Say it with me...
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:18
I have watched a lot of the Hurricane Harvey survivor's testimonies and not one that I heard was whining about this or that. They were so thankful for everything. We can learn a lot from them.
This morning I was whining about an issue that I'm struggling with, and then I was reminded of others who are facing bigger battles. GIVE THANKS IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES!
The bottom line in giving thanks is trusting God when he says he is there for us, and then us living out the joy that comes through that peace. We all are facing or will face a battle, a struggle, a valley, an alligator, or the belly of a whale. At that moment we must decide, we must choose happiness or become a whiner.
I'm thankful that God uses his people to encourage and bring his truth message.
We are missing the point if we are dwelling on our weaknesses. We must find ourselves deep into God's work so that there is no time for such nonsense.
The road we travel may be long, but it has purpose.
