Daily Walk with the Holy Spirit

A God big enough to care about little me.

"Teach me. O Lord the way of Thy statues; and I shall keep it unto the end." Psalm 119:33 KJV

"Shew me Thy ways, O Lord; teach me Thy paths. Lead me in Thy truths, and teach me: for Thou art the God of my Salvation: on Thee do I wait all the day long." Psalm 25:45 KJV

Are you frustrated with life in general?

Many of us have longings and aspirations in our heart, but circumstances are such that they have not come to pass.

Why do we find so often that our longings are not met?

Why is it that the theme of our very existence is so often based upon those unfulfilled desires?

Could it be that you are a young couple, trying to have children only to confront infertility.

Could it be that you just got laid off at work without warning.

Could it be that you are single wanting that married life, but the relationships are few and far in between.

With all these situations and many more just like them, frustration builds up.

So, what are we to do with all those unfulfilled desires?
Well?

"Delight Thyself also in the Lord; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit Thy way unto the Lord; trust also in Him: and He shall bring it to pass." Psalm 37:4-5 KJV

He will give you the desires of your heart.

The desires of your heart must be legitimate.

The desires of your heart must be right and pure.

The desires of your heart have to be in accordance with the eternal plan and purposes of God.

God wills what is best for you, not just what you want.

If you do not believe in a personal God, my friend, you are missing out that can make a relationship bearable and incredibly intriguing.

My friend, have you not heard that God cares for each one of us on an individual basis.

God will reveal Himself to us, if we would only allow Him to do so.

God will interrupt what we think is the natural way of doing things, just so He can build our faith.

God is not too big to care about each person individually, nor is He to small to take care of your individual needs.

My friend, if He knows all the stars and calls them by name how much more is He willing to help take care of you and your needs.

My friend, is it too much to believe that He knows and cares about each one of us?

"He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds. he telleth the number of the stars; He calleth them all by their names. Great is our Lord, and of great power: His understanding is infinite." Psalm 147:3-5 KJV

"Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: He calleth them all by names by the greatness of His might, for that He is strong in power; not one faileth." Isaiah 40:26 KJV

In thousands of ways through good and bad, God has tried to make Himself known by meeting your own personal needs.

There is not one person who cannot point to instances where God's divine intervention has a logical explanation.

Society today encourages us to explain events in any way other than to give our Creator, glory.

My friend, when God steps in, there ain't no other explanation.

Why is it we seem to search the universe for God, when all along He is right here within us.

He is in love with each of us.

He cares for each of us on an individual level.

He sees your heart and reads the content of it, even while you are going through your present circumstances.

God will not forsake you.

Will you allow the frustrations of life govern your heart?

Although, it can be frustrating to wait, we shall receive what is best for us in the long run.

If God gave us everything that we desired, the results would be obviously harmful even damaging to us.

God gives us what he ordains knowing all along that His will, it will satisfy us.

What a comfort, What a joy to know that our heavenly Father is looking out the best things for us!

"I asked for strength that I might achieve.
I was made weak that I might obey.
I asked for health that I might do greater things.

I was given infirmity that I might do better things.
I asked for riches that I might be happy.
I was given poverty that I might be wise.
I asked for power that I might have the praise of men.
I was given weakness so that I might feel the need for God!
I asked for all things that I might enjoy life. I was given life that I might enjoy all things.
I have received nothing I asked for and all that I hoped for.
My prayer is answered." - written by a young soldier from the Civil War who was injured and crippled for the rest of his life.

There is something in that prayer that we can say pertains to our own natural way of thinking.

O God in Your great grace and mercy restore, renew, and revive me! Do a work of grace in my life that will make me the kind of person who exalts and praises You no matter what circumstances may come my way.

"Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me." Psalm 51:10 KJV

"O Lord, open my lips, my mouth will declare Your praise." Psalm 51:15 NIV
