Verse of the day...

3 I thank my God every time I remember you. 4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:3-6)

Just Obey.................

One of the realities of the Christian life is that at times, God will give you instructions that seem difficult, unfair, irrational, and may even appear somewhat absurd. He will challenge you to do things that cause you to feel inadequate and vulnerable, and you will experience an intense crisis of faith. It is the same struggle that Moses faced at the Red Sea, which Joshua confronted before the walls of Jericho, and that David encountered in his battle against Goliath. The choice becomes clear all too clear: Either you’ll follow your limited human viewpoint and walk away from the Lord in defeat, or you’ll trust Him and do what He’s commanded you—no matter how unreasonable it may seem.

God sees the beginning, middle, and end of your situation; therefore, His perspective about what He has called you to do is far more complete than yours. Are you hesitant to obey the Lord because He’s commanded you to do something that you’re not comfortable with or that you think is illogical? Remember, it is not your responsibility to understand why He calls you as He does—it is simply your job to trust and obey Him.

*Spend time in prayer asking God to draw you into intimate communion with Himself, with a heart fully willing to do whatever He says—even if it seems unreasonable.
*Praise the Lord that He will lead you to victory as you obey Him wholeheartedly

hugs...... love... & blessings
