“I will go before you and make the crooked places straight…” (Isaiah 45:2, NKJ)
Are you going through a season where you feel like every time you try to move forward, you hit a roadblock? Something happens that throws you off course. Be encouraged today because when you submit your life to the Lord, He promises to go before you. He is preparing a way for you. He is making your crooked places straight and your rough places smooth. You may be going through a difficult time right now, but it’s not the end. It’s only the beginning, and God has equipped you for this journey.
Today, if you feel like you’re in a dry season, don’t look at your circumstances. Look at the promise of God! If you’ll keep speaking words of faith, God promises that He’ll anoint your head with oil and your cup will run over. That means you’ll be refreshed and anointed to do what He’s called you to do. God is preparing your path and equipping you for the journey.
What do you need in order to keep moving forward? Start by checking your attitude. Don’t go around complaining or focused on the negative side of things. Put on an attitude of praise and thanksgiving. Thank Him for making your crooked places straight! Keep your eyes on Him and follow Him forward into the path of victory!
When you see your brother in need do not be satisfied with simply praying for them… If you are in the capacity to help then do so.
Do not love simple with words, but love with actions. This is the best time for the people of God to be the hands and feet of Jesus. To extend His love, and as Paul said “so being affectionately desirous of you, we were ready to share with you not only the gospel of God but our own selves…”
Let us move pass the notion of helping to simply feel good about ourselves, to actually rising into action to help others by giving ourselves in any way we can.
