Quote

When life is good or challenging remember this, we are overcomers through Christ.

~ Lisa Blair

We humans think we can handle all things. When we enter life’s battles: illness, loss, death, separation, personal attacks, and devastation, we only need to look to God. He overcomes and cancels out evil.

When trials and temptations present themselves, know ’only God’ can see you through. Rely on Him for all things. Seek Him first.

”Paul gives us insight on overcoming evil. First we have to renew our minds to the word of God being transformed into his likeness (Romans 12:2). Secondly, our gifts must be in operation in the body of Christ, to which we were called to belong (Romans 12:5). Next we must love sincerely without hypocrisy, devoted to one another (Romans 12:9, Romans 12:10). We are to keep ourselves zealous for the Lord, joyful, patient and faithful (Romans 12:11, Romans 12:12). These things will keep our focus on God and off our circumstances. Looking to Him will allow His characteristics to daily flow out of our lives overcoming and mastering sin)” all attacks that face us.

Remember this, we are overcomers through Christ. We have the victory.

Comfort In Uncertainty

Quote

When we are lost, we seek inward. When we are confused we seek God. Isn’t it amazing that we rely on Him and Him alone when things get tough.

~ Lisa Blair

Do you ever feel alone? Have you found yourself unable to figure things out? I have. We are in a time of uncertainty. We may have a job, roof our our head, and food on the table today, but uncertain about tomorrow, or you may have already been displaced as the result of the pandemic, loss of jobs, or storms, fires, or earthquakes. UNCERTAINTY IS THE TERM OF THE MOMENT. Absolutely nothing is as we understand it, but the WORD OF GOD. There is only one thing we can rely on and that’s His Word. It is our refuge, our safe haven, our tower against the storms of life.

The pandemic has ravaged the world as we know it. It has forced us to stop looking outward and begin looking inward at our relationship with God. I have met so many people who have been displaced from their pre-pandemic lives and have found freedom amongst the muck that has ravaged their lives.

Many are joining bible study Zooms, many are seeking introspection and their relationship with the Lord. Still others have decided to invest in themselves and not things, and are moving to less expensive cities and states. Many have regained connections with family members. And, many have found God and received Him as their Lord and Savior, hoping to come out of this in a strong relationship with our Father and a design for their futures that provide relationships outlined in the Bible as their basis for new life.

There is always a silver lining in every cloud. The timing for its appearance is governed by God. He knows the plans He has for us to prosper us and give us strength. He will provide for our basic needs as we travel through tough times, blessings will appear in many forms. Awareness of his blessings small and large were often overlooked and assumed to be something we made happen in the past. I think, for many, we are just beginning to recognize that our blessings come from God to meet all of our needs.

As we move forward, our lives may look different, we are shedding the past, those things that became idols and stole our time from the Lord. The new day will clearly focus on God and our relationship with Him. Our lives will experience His inner peace. We will find calm in the middle of storms, and we will be surrounded by His Grace and Mercies.
