IN 2009, WE ROLLED OUR VAN AND TOTALED IT. We were on our way to church, hit a patch of black ice and spun out of control and rolled, landing right side up. Van totaled. Matt and I were in physical therapy for 3 months and I cracked my rib. I freaked out driving after that.
What’s worse is that just a few weeks before, we spent $800 out of pocket getting an axle fixed from another icy road accident. It was a rough winter. Now, it depends on how you want to look at things. We were excited to be alive and that our kids weren’t injured. Plus, we were out of a HUGE car payment! Yes!
You can get angry and bitter at your circumstances OR you can choose to TRUST GOD. Here’s the thing- He NEVER PROMISED that you weren’t going to go through things. He NEVER PROMISED that life was going to be easy. Here’s what He DOES PROMISE: “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you.” Isaiah 43:2 I WILL GO WITH YOU, says the LORD! He will never waste your pain.
Are you speaking LIFE or DEATH? Do you BELIEVE that He SEES, He KNOWS and He CARES? Maybe that fire is a little hotter than you like- HE IS GREATER THAN ANY FIRE. Press into Him. Envelop yourself in His presence and abide in His Word. You WILL come out without even the smell of smoke on you, in Jesus name!#runyourrace
