These Thorns

Have you ever had something that was so painful in your life that you would pray and ask God to remove it, but it just wouldn’t go away. It seemed the more you prayed about it the worst it would become.

If you would speak to the mountain it shall be removed. That’s what the word says right, but sometimes that mountain just would never move. After all in order for the mountain to be removed it still has to be within His will.

Could it be the very thing that you are asking God to remove is part of your process.

Today’s Word 

grace

noun

  • the free and unedited favor of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestow aloft blessings

We don’t even deserve God’s grace, but because of His love for us He continues to give it us anyway.

My Grace is Sufficient 2 Corinthians 12:6-10

Thorns

  • Divorce
  • Bad relationship
  • Betrayal
  • Guilt
  • Pain
  • Loss of a loved one
  • Road blocks
  • Finances
  • Church

These are just  a few of the thorns that we could be experiencing in our life, but no matter what we may be going through, His grace is sufficient for us.

God will sometimes take us through the wilderness experiences to see if we will trust Him. It could also be that when He takes you through and brings you out that no one else will be able to get the glory but Him. Everything that we go through and experience is part of God’s purpose for our life. Can we trust Him even when we can’t see?

Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee” Hebrew 13:5


Maybe our prayer should no longer be, “Lord remove these thorns”, but “Lord give me the grace to go through it”

The Lord is My Shepherd “Psalm 23”

When David was going through his valley experience he never prayed for God to take him out of it, but he prayed what God would do while he was going through it.  He knew that no matter what he had to endure that it was only temporary and that God was always with him.

As painful as thorns can be, yet the most beautiful things are produced because of the them.  Roses are one of the most beautifulest flowers in the world and it grows within thorns.  When someone wants to show affection for someone they  are normally presented with roses.

Be encouraged in knowing that no matter your thorn God is with you and that it is only temporary. Go ahead and bloom!

SONG LIST

“Safe In His Arms” Lucinda Moore

Because the Lord is my shepherd
I have everything I need
He lets me rest in the meadows grass
And He leads me besides the quiet stream
He restores my failing hands
And helps me to do what honors
That’s why I’m safe
Safe in His arms

When the storm of life is raging
And the billows roll
So glad He shall hide me
Safe in His arms

So glad, He shall hide me

Safe in His arms
