Challenge · Grace · Great · present · Thanks

challenging grace…

Shout and sing for joy, O inhabitant of Zion, for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.

Isaiah 12:6 ESV

For those who have entered the Kingdom through the blood of Jesus… by faith in the Way He made… we become inhabitants of Zion… the eternal city of God…

It’s a spiritual location… not physical…

It’s a state of the heart… the place our mind… will… emotions… reside while we continue to walk in the enemy territory of this dark world…

It takes practice… exercising your faith… to remember you’re an inhabitant of God’s Eternal City… as daily challenges arise…

I’ve grown accustom over the last couple of decades… to dealing with the small challenges… traffic jams… low tires… unexpected delays…

At times… feel like I’ve mastered this living by faith…

But lately… some BIG challenges… cause me to feel like I need to be great… take control… and of course the truth is I’m not… in control or great…

So today… He reminds… I Am Great in your midst…

And I trust that He is… let go… and humbly… give thanks…

Thank You… Lord… for being all that I’m not… for being Great… Wise… Aware… Infinite… Ever-present… More Than Capable… of taking care of the challenges which are beyond me…

Thank You… Lord… for challenging grace… which reminds me who You are… and who i am before You…

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

Psalm 18:2 ESV
