Greetings! I have been operating with a dilemma for over a year now, and it is one that my faith was truly tested. What I realize is that Matt. 17:20 reminds me that even with my entire repertoire of faith, I need a "mustard seed" as I journey through the valley of the shadow of death to move the mountain. With faith, I know that God is faithful in all circumstances because without it, I'm unable to please God.
On today, struck with the knowledge that I still have an aneurysm in my brain, I must know that I have not been forsaken as I walk through this valley journey, but am equipped with a faith in God that surpasses even my own understanding. As leaders, we must show up, perform, endure, be patient and know that evil is persistent in many shades of black, white and gray, but David reminds us in Psalm 23:4 that we need not fear evil or be afraid. Why? He says, "for You are close beside me. Your rod and Your staff protect and comfort me." (NLT) Because God is faithful in all circumstances, we must trust and believe that we are never forsaken!
No matter what trouble comes your way today (and it's coming!), know that God is with us, His rod and staff protects and comforts us. Let your leadership be free of stress and uncertainty and make this a WINS-day! Why? Because God's comfort and healing power have been bestowed upon you today. Be WINNERS in your pursuit to do His Will, His Way in His Time. Now GO! press your way through and maintain a "mustard seed" of faith that can move mountains!
