I WANT TO SERVE GOD!
“…choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve… But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15
I have had an interesting weekend. Some good, some not so good, but all of it was allowed by God. Notice I didn’t say that God caused any of it.
No matter what happens in my life, I want to always serve the true and living God. He allowed some things to cross my families path in the past week that, had I not been a Christian, and had I not had Christian friends visiting, could have turned out to be a tragic weekend. You see, He has a way of “orchestrating” things in our lives that might otherwise seem coincidental. As a Christian, I do not see things as coincidental. I know He made sure that this weekend didn’t happen until my friends showed up…..
My dear friends Larry and Lisa and their children arrived in here last Wednesday. After a couple of days of visiting, a situation arose that needed to be dealt with. I cannot divulge details, but suffice it to say, the ending could have been far worse.
Recently on facebook, I posted something to the effect of, “We are under spiritual attack. Well, Satan, bring it on”. Wow, looking back now, I wonder WHAT I was doing by saying that. However, at the time, it had to do with my confronting a situation (completely separate from the one over this past weekend).
What’s my point? If I want to serve God, if you want to serve God, if anyone wants to serve God, than we had BETTER be prepared to endure spiritual attack. How do we prepare? PRAY & stay in God’s Word. Nevertheless, God’s timing is ALWAYS perfect. He allowed the current situation to “happen” over the weekend when we had people here who would pray for us, be with us, comfort us, and never judge us for ANYTHING.
Are you dealing with a situation that you are unsure about? Give it to God! Once you give it to Him, though, DO NOT take it back. Remember, He created the entire universe. He can definitely handle anything that comes our way!
Sorry if this seems a bit short…. I am going to go pray with my “littles” (the 3 little girls) before they go to bed. If you happen to think of us, please pray. Satan is on the attack! But, I know the ending ~ God wins!
Goodnight and God bless you!
