Last Sunday, in my message, I shared the following statements.
If you feel lonely, the Holy Spirit reminds you that God is with you.
If you feel insecure, the Holy Spirit reminds you that God is your confidence.
If you feel uncertain, the Holy Spirit reminds you that He is your Counselor.
If you feel depressed, the Holy Spirit reminds you that He is your Comforter.
Circumstances can skew your perspective.
But like David, you have to remind yourself. Psalm 116:7–10 (GNT) "Be confident, my heart, because the LORD has been good to me. The LORD saved me from death; he stopped my tears and kept me from defeat. And so I walk in the presence of the LORD in the world of the living. I kept on believing, even when I said, 'I am completely crushed.'"
There is and will always be a tension that exists within our hearts. Our flesh wants to run to our fears. But the Holy Spirit will always lead us to faith. Running to our fears is easy. We can see it and get there in a moment. But following the Holy Spirit requires faith. Heb 11:1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
We struggle because we cannot see. Faith says, "I may not be able to see, but I trust the One who can."
PRAY: Dear Jesus, I will put my trust in You. Lead me today. AMEN
