"From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than l. For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy."
Life can sometimes be very harsh and almost unbearable, however, as precious children of the Most High God, I just wanted to remind and encourage us all today that whatever it is that might be threathening to distort our view of the reality of God's promises, provision and purpose for our lives; lets take a deep breath and remember that God is our rock that is higher than any deadlines, frustrations, lost hope, poor health, career issues, families, work or any situation that may seem unbearable in this season of our lives. Why? Because He is the God of all flesh and nothing is too difficult for Him. And He is the Rock of ages!
Now the dosage for experiencing and living in this reality is; to spend quality time with God in the high places of His faithfulness and love by doing that we will gain a better and a wider understanding of His purpose for our lives. From my personal experience, life viewed from the Lord's heights can clear our minds, help us sort out our priorities and will always allow us to see how our seconds, minutes, days, months and years can be manageble after all.
In saying that maybe like me, you have faced demands from your family, frustrations with work, your church or ministry commitments and expectations from your friends. You feel like your heart is growing fainter with each added pressure and you may not be able to take time off to clear your mind and thoughts. Don't look any further dear friend, investing solid and concentrated time with the Lord, He will give you a whole new perspective. And from the depth of His love, you will see things as they really ought to be through His eyes for our lives.
I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world." --John 16:33
