Challenge, Day 24

I'm reminded that Satan is always ready. One after the other, he hurls bundles of things at us that must be dealt with. I must keep at the feet of Jesus if I hope to be spared! I've come to have a little bit of thankfulness for the hard things that come up in my life. It's during those hard times that I am pressed for wisdom and peace, and come to my heavenly Father for "...grace to help in time of need." (Heb 4:14). Sweet fellowship can spring up from spending time with Jesus through the rocky places, but I don't want to let that fellowship fade or lose value when the storm abates. I need Him all the time - for every breath. My creator, who knows every detail of my existence! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ "For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; When I awake, I am still with You." ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Psalm 139:13-18 Please read the whole chapter when you get a moment :-)
