I borrowed this from a friend. We are now nine days into the new year. I have a feeling there are some people who are already discouraged because they haven’t been able to keep their “New Year’s Resolutions”, falling into old habits that they thought they had broken, or just haven’t been able to get a jump on things like they wanted. God tells us He is still there, and still waiting for us to turn to those things over to Him!
I AM WITH YOU AND FOR YOU. When you decide on a course of action that is in line with My will, nothing in heaven or on earth can stop you. You may encounter many obstacles as you move toward your goal, but don’t be discouraged – never give up! With My help, you can overcome any obstacle. Do not expect an easy path as you journey hand in hand with Me, but do remember that I, your very-present Helper, am omnipotent.
Much, much stress results from your wanting to make things happen before their times have come. One of the main ways I assert My sovereignty is in the timing of events. If you want to stay close to Me and do things My way, ask Me to show you the path forward moment by moment. Instead of dashing headlong toward your goal, let me set the pace. Slow down, and enjoy the journey in My Presence.
