If I look back at 2017 I would have to say that this was a very special and terrifying year for me. It was the year where my faith was tested to a whole new level and what made this year special was the fact that I grew so much closer to God.
This year was so stressful and busy that I came to a point where my body just didn’t want to anymore. I was constantly sick, tired and even at times depressed. Recently God started showing me, or more like teaching me what it is to rest in Him. I am really excited about this mini-series and I pray that it will bless you.
In any situation whether it is good or bad we need to learn how to trust God, because if we don’t trust God it means you don’t have a lot of faith and you aren’t ready to step back and rest.
Life happens and we all go through bad stuff every now and again, we start to freak out and look for ways to calm ourselves down. We look for peace in people. things or places, instead of turning to the one true peace. God. Something that I learned very quick this year was that I can’t do anything even if I try hard to change my situation. Only God can do that, He can just by saying one word change my entire life!
5 I lay down and slept [safely]; I awakened, for the Lord sustains me. – Psalm 3:5 [AMP]
Wow, when we realize who our God is, we realize how small this world and the enemy is. The enemy comes to steal your sleep, time, focus and health. We need to see the enemy for who he is and not the circumstances or the person in that situation.
12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this [present] darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) places. – Ephesians 6:12 [AMP]
Are you in a season where the enemy is attacking? Remember that God can do ANYTHING, He just says one word and it is over.
