As I process the news of my heart troubles, your prayers and encouragement are so incredibly dear to me and our family. I am slowly reading through your many comments. Thank you.
As I thought about the passage I shared yesterday, where Daniel literally becomes sick over what God has shown him will happen to God’s people, I am also reminded, Daniel got up and goes about his work (Dan 8:27).
He studies Scripture, specifically the book of Jeremiah (Dan 9:2); and he fasts, and he prays.
He didn’t deny the trouble around him. It bothered him greatly. He even fainted over it.
But he got up! And he went to work…his normal work and God’s work.
And here’s what I believe, though many of us have real reason for concern over circumstances in our lives (Daniel did), let’s go about the work God has given us to do.
Let’s take one day at a time (Matt 6:34). There is strength in doing so.
Let’s take care of our families and love our neighbors. Let’s serve our employers well.
And let’s also keep digging in the Word for hope and truth (Daniel did). It’s daily bread. Let’s hold on to that.
Let’s fast and pray for the heavy things on our hearts (Daniel did) . Let’s never forget God hears our prayers.(1 John 5:14-15)
Let’s keep trusting the One we trust for eternity for this one day, and then get up and do it again tomorrow!
Let’s praise Christ alone! The One who said He is coming again, will most certainly come for His children!
Here’s a wonderful song to remember where our hope is found, for this day and every day— https://youtu.be/16KYvfIc2bE (Christ Alone with Lyrics by Getty Music)
