“Pray, Be Patient, And Do Your Best”

We can be as sure as our faith that our enemy the devil is trying with vigor to destroy our faith and kill us.

Knowing, realizing, and respecting this truth should make the brother or sister in Christ take God’s word, His wisdom, His protection, His mercy, His grace, and His love more important in their lives.

Further, it should also foster a desire in us who call Jesus “Lord” of our lives to be less concerned with seeking out and living the life that we choose and more with living out with purpose and the destiny-filled life that God has planned for us.

God brought this thought to me at “O’dark-thirty” this morning and I feel that it reflects how God wants us to deal with the daily trials that we face:  “Pray, be patient, and do your best. I simply want you to trust me in all things, be a servant to all whom I love (that means everyone) and love me with all of your heart.”

God spoke this to my heart this morning and impressed me to share it because He knew that someone else who is reading this in a place where these words can bring them some peace.

Is this you this morning?

If so, stop being so hard on yourself (He impressed this upon my heart also) and I pose to you the same questions that He posed to me as a reminder of how to calm down and rest in His peace this morning.

Do you not think that God did not know you would be foolish as you can be and “mess-up” sometimes?

Do you not think that He knows ALL of your issues including that fact that though you wage mighty battles against your sin issues and your flesh that you would sometimes lose a few of those battles yet in Him you have already won the war?

These, my brothers and sisters are just a few of the reasons that He sacrificed His perfect Son which was for a perfect reason to serve His perfect purpose which is to have a personal, meaningful, and eternal relationship with you.

He cherishes and delights in you so much that He thinks of you incessantly!

He loves you with an unquenchable, burning fire-like love that is purposeful and eternal!

So stop, take a minute, praise Him, worship Him, and tell Him you love Him simply for who He is and what He has done and will do for you!

I join with you in this via our conjoined, Christ-filled spirits and I leave you with an eternal kiss from your “brotha” from “anotha” “motha”.

By the hand of God’s eternal servant in Christ,

Ron “Big Black” Garrett
