Now a man of the tribe of Levi married a Levite woman, and she became pregnant and gave birth to a son. When she saw that he was a fine child, she hid him for three months. But when she could hide him no longer, she got a papyrus basket for him and coated it with tar and pitch. Then she placed the child in it and put it among the reeds along the bank of the Nile. His sister stood at a distance to see what would happen to him. Exodus 2:1-4
These last couple of months I have had to trust God to the fullest. I tried to “fix” things or get answers on my own but to no avail.
You know when you get the “I can handle this” syndrome… Or the I will make a couple of phone calls and will get to the bottom of this…You think that you are Wonder Woman!
You ask your friends that are prayer warriors for prayer over your situation and before you send the e-mail another situation arises. At this point, you feel too embarrassed to ask for prayer for yet— another thing….not only of people but of God too! Am I the only one that has been there? You feel as if people will start to think that you are craving either attention or are starting to make things up because it almost doesn’t seem logical! This of course is a lie of the enemy! The body of Christ is to unite and pray for one another- it’s biblical my friend!
Today, I read a quote by Dr. Tony Evans: The Greater the Crisis, the Greater the Destiny!
Did you see that?
The one that is feeling overwhelmed by everything that is happening around you- this word is for you!
I am reminded of Jochebed. Jochebed was the mother of Moses, one of the major characters in the Old Testament. Her appearance is short and we are not told much about her, but one trait stands out: Trust in God.
She ran out of options. She had hid her child for 3 months and now couldn’t hide him any longer.
There were no other options….no other way BUT to Trust God!
You see my friend, I had to bundle my issues and place them in a basket too and trust that God will take care of each of my loved ones.
Is it easy? No way! Is it the only way? YES!
Today, do not feel defeated, overwhelmed or discouraged by your situation. Wrap it up nicely for your Abba Father and send it off in the Nile. He has plans for you that will amaze you!
My friend, HE’S GOT THIS!
Expect the Unexpected!!!! …And remember to Just Breathe today.
Send me a comment or note as to how I can pray with you today. We are all facing something but when we unite in prayer, there is an unsurpassed power!
