"...But the people who know their God shall stand firm and take action." Daniel 11:32bJuly is chasing me away. I've been recently informed that I must depart in less than 3 weeks. It has been raining nonstop since I received the news (literally). I am holding on tightly to my Father's hand as I walk through this foggy, overcast season. I go where He leads, and He is leading me away for a while. Oceans apart from my dear friends, guy and family.
I've been tempted to say "Lord, why? Why are you doing this?" but I won't. It's irrelevant. He's been preparing me, showing me to be content, whatever my lot entails. More than anything, He has revealed Himself to me. I was reading today this passage and the fact that I know Him fuels my faith to stand firm in the furnace. Like Daniel, I am confident in whom I serve. God is able to deliver me from this, and even if He doesn't, I shall still worship Him. I am loved by Him and He desires my ultimate good. He will glorify Himself in me, wherever that is because God is not limited by location. I shall smile at the days to come because He holds my future in His loving hands as well as all the people I'm departing from.
Whether your days are filled with sunlight or rain, let Him reveal Himself to you. Then you will be strong and able to stand firm.
My time has come to be light in darkness.
