God Is in All Our Life Circumstances

June 18, 2018

Message Summary:  If the Lord is in our lives, then our lives’ circumstances somehow relate to Him. The Psalmist tells us, in Psalms 100:2-5, that God is with us because He made us: “Serve the LORD with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! Know that the LORD, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to generations.". Therefore, practicing the presence of Jesus in our lives helps us to stay in tune with Jesus’ influence in our lives. Being in tune with Jesus presence, in our lives, is like listening to an FM radio station – we must tune into the right station and then listen. Tuning into the right station, for the presence of Jesus, requires that we maintain an awareness of our circumstances and their relationship to Jesus. Additionally, we must maintain a constant conversation, through prayer, with Jesus; and we must look to see how God is involved in the events surrounding us.

Today’s Affirmation: Because of who I am in Jesus Christ, I will not be driven by Anger. Rather, I will abide in the Lord’s Forgiveness. “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in Me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5).
