Sorry, I've been away for a while. I was feeling sick but now I'm feeling good... Actually I'm feeling better because I know that these sorts of things happen before big breakthroughs. The bottom of a valley can also be seen as the foot of a mountain. And no matter where we may be or how we see where we are, we know that Jesus Christ is always with us. He will never leave nor forsake us. He is faithful and true.
That's the beauty of living in the fullness of Christ. He is connected to everything that happens to us, for us, against us, around us, in us, and because of us. He is really THE Way, THE Truth, and THE Life. By the power of the Holy Spirit, His light is seen in every circumstance prior to our responding according to the flesh, that we are able to choose to give God thanks and praise.
And why shouldn't we give Him praise in all things? Our Father is faithful, and in Christ, all His promises are truly "Yes!" and "Amen!" This is nothing we gained, but it is what Christ won for us at the cross! See, we were not only saved, not only conformed, but transformed completely! In Christ, we didn't just get an overhaul, we were made brand new better creations!
God is truly good, all the time! Halleluyah!
