We can be Certain! 

There is so much uncertainty in the world. When we go through seasons of uncertainty, we need to remind ourselves of the times we’ve struggled and wondered if God would come through for us. Not that we should want to dwell in the past, but to merely pause and reflect that He always does come through in one way or another for us. In hindsight we will see that we never needed to worry about God meeting our needs. Since God has come through for us before, we can be certain He will do the same now. 

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

I am reminded of the account in the gospels when a storm violently shook the boat Luke 8:23-25. The disciples frantically feared for their lives. It’s easy to see why they would have reacted this way. Jesus, on the other hand, slept peacefully in the boat. When they woke Him, Jesus asked them why they didn’t have faith He would make sure everything turned out alright. Then, Jesus calmed the waves with one command ― which left his followers astonished that even the wind and waves would obey Him.

 

Jesus was physically present in their daily lives, but when the storm hit they needed to make a choice to trust Him. Today, His Spirit is alive and dwelling among us. Therefore there is no need to worry because we are always in the presence of the one who commands the universe. If we say we believe in Jesus, then why not believe Him? He asks us the same thing in our times of uncertainty…where is out faith?

 

Again, it is a daily discipline. No matter the uncertainty, where there is Jesus, there can be peace. You can be certain of it.

 

So let me encourage you to go deeper — When you feel overwhelmed, just stop. Turn all distractions and sources of noise off. Be still. Thank the Lord for what He has done for you in the past and thank Him for the plans and purposes He has for you. Praise God that He has you in His loving arms.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
