A Word of Encouragement: God Sees, He Knows & He Smiles!
“I see what you've done. Now see what I've done. I've opened a door before you that no one can slam shut. You don’t have much strength, I know that; you used what you had to keep my Word. You didn't deny me when times were rough.... Because you kept my Word in passionate patience, I’ll keep you safe in the time of testing..." Revelations 3:8,10. (MSG)
I believe God wants to encourage someone today...
God says, He's seen your heart and your commitment to remain pure and faithful to His word. Your efforts have not gone unnoticed by God!
He's sees the hard choices you've had to make - even those times when you had to hold on to your panties with all your spiritual might! He knows what a struggle it's been, and He so pleased that you stood your ground and did not open that door to sin again!
And since you refused to open that old door, God says that He's opening a new door of strength and endurance for you! He's increasing your faith and releasing new favor upon your life because He's a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him!
You stood firm, when everything in you wanted to cave and give in to your flesh, therefore God is drawing nearer to you with a heart filled with grace and compassion. Know that He's continuing to cover you with His hand and shield you with His divine protection, so that the battles to come will not nearly be as difficult to endure as those in the past!
Be encouraged! With every test you face and pass, you're growing, you're maturing and your testimony is blessing God's heart!
He sees! He knows and He cares about you and everything you're going through! And He wants you to know that He's so very pleased with you!!!
If this word speaks to your heart, then rejoice!!! You've made God Smile!!!
