Don't give up

This morning while reading my Bible, a song came to me. I term it one of my more 'local' praise and worship songs that I sang as a child. It goes like this

everywhere He went
He was doing good
Almighty Healer
He healed the leper
When the people saw Him
they started walking
even TODAY
my Lord is doing GOOD

What really got me was the part that says that even TODAY..this very day..the 19th of January 2008..the Lord is doing GOOD. Sometimes when we have been waiting on the Lord for an answer to a specific need or a particular issue..the beginning of a new year sometimes seems bittersweet. We are happy to come into a new year alive and well but it is a reminder that the clock is ticking and we have been waiting. My encouragement to us is that even TODAY..our Lord is doing GOOD and in His perfect timing..those desires will come to pass in Jesus name.

In the Gospels..we hear about Jesus going from place to place..healing the sick, raising the dead, opening blind eyes, setting people free from demonic oppression and calming storms. Everywhere He went, He was doing good. I encourage you today to cling to Him and never let go..even though you are tired, just come to Him tired. If you can't stand He will carry you. As long as you are with Him, you will see that good. Never give up on that dream, just ask Him to come into the situation and watch Him work wonders.

I'm really expectant for good things this year. 2008 is our year of UNCOMMON TESTIMONY.

Remain blessed and highly favoured

hiya... it is important for us to remember that God is good ALL the time!! it is hard to believe this esp wen life is kicking in the wrong way... but God is good and it is our knowledge of this truth that will keep us going in the hardest of times; us knowing that God is TOO good to let us down.

take care!!
