Do You Believe?

January 1

“…Oh, I believe there is a God and He is here with me…”

I would not have survived had I not found a Firm Foundation. For too many years I allowed myself to be blown about by every new prevailing wind that came my way. That’s what happens when we do not have a place to anchor our soul. When I had reached the bottom of seeking to have my needs met on my own terms, the Lord met me there with the reality of His presence. I no longer had to seek my affirmation, gain my acceptance, or seek my destiny in ways that never satisfied. All my needs were met deeply and profoundly in knowing Jesus Christ. Problems and temptations did not cease to exist in my life. I simply now had someone who understood and someone who would walk every step of the way with me. He is here and He is a Solid Rock where I find refuge in the storms of life.

Take time to look for signs and reminders of His presence with you today.

God [is] our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.

Psalm 46:1 KJV
