Today I had the opportunity to preach at one of the Chapels on post. The title to the message the Lord gave me was Here and Now. We looked at Psalms 13, John 14:1-4 and Philippians 3:13-17. In all three of the texts, the writer is either experience a traumatic or life changing event. They are encountering difficulties that Here and Now are big to them.
As we worked through the passages, it was evident that in our times of needs, difficulty, struggles, trial and LIFE, the only constant thing that we can hold on to is...THE LORD IS FAITHFUL!!!
He is our Rock! He is our Fortress! He is our Salvation! He is our Refuge! He is our Anchor! He is our GOD!!! He is EVERYTHING!!!
Because He is, we can rest in the uncertainties of everyday living and life. Julie and Melanie are flying back home to Idstein on standby and even though they didn't make the flight as it was full, I KNOW that the Lord Knows!! I know He is working it out!! He has something else planned that right now we don't see but tomorrow or next week or next year, we will know exactly why.
What is your Here and Now moment? Do you see His hand on you? Leading you? Holding you? Taking you through the times is His opportunity to show Himself a little more to each of us! His will and His way for HIS GLORY!!
I trust that you will find encouragement in the lessons of life as you seek Him for the Here and Now!!
