Life has us hurrying off to do the next thing, always busy, rushing. We need to slow down, pay attention or give up the enjoyment of life.
Strength from God is not always the strength we are praying for when we pray, "Lord make me stronger." Strength from God is no strength at all, yet then it makes total sense in God's economy.
Ever felt misunderstood. Ever had a situation where your intentions were good, but people interpreted you in a negative light. In our world where social media often determines who is “liked” and who is not, it can be pretty hard to be known intimately and personally by someone. We all long to be understood. We are also not all perfect.
Life is scary. There is reason to be afraid when we look at the world around us, when we contemplate the future. Even when we consider our own limitations, there is reason to be afraid. What must you and I remember when we are afraid?
To make a new start there has to be a fresh revelation of God. We have to encounter the supernatural to make sense of our natural again. Like Moses’ bush, or Elijah’s mountaintop experience, we have to see God as He really is. Then we can start.
