Day 25 – Give Him time.

Deuteronomy 8:1-10

 1 Be careful to follow every command I am giving you today, so that you may live and increase and may enter and possess the land the LORD promised on oath to your ancestors. 2 Remember how the LORD your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years, to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands. 3 He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD. 4 Your clothes did not wear out and your feet did not swell during these forty years. 5 Know then in your heart that as a man disciplines his son, so the LORD your God disciplines you. 6 Observe the commands of the LORD your God, walking in obedience to him and revering him. 7 For the LORD your God is bringing you into a good land—a land with brooks, streams, and deep springs gushing out into the valleys and hills; 8 a land with wheat and barley, vines and fig trees, pomegranates, olive oil and honey; 9 a land where bread will not be scarce and you will lack nothing; a land where the rocks are iron and you can dig copper out of the hills.

 10 When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the LORD your God for the good land he has given you.

I love the line in the verse above that says: ‘He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna,’ – It’s so true isnt it? When we are in trouble and when we turn to the Lord, in our fervor, He humbles us and shows a way out of our troubles. Such a comforting thought.

How many friends do you have that will stick with you through thick, thick, oblong, square, etc? He does. How many people will understand you at your worst and when you’re cynical and grumpy? He does. How many people will tell you that things will be alright and be absolutely sure that they will be? He can.

Day 25

He protects us all the time. Everytime we’re in distress.

He protects me from knowing that my heart can’t handle love again. He protects me from depression and its effects. He protects me from hurting because someone won’t love me enough. He protects me from settling for less than i deserve. He protects my family from the violence surrounding them. He protects my family from famine, poverty and pain.

He protected my mother when she had a few serious surgeries. He protects my dad everyday with his addiction, He will slowly show him the right way. I believe it. He protects my sister from the evils of the world but making her smarter to know the difference, giving her free-will to make mistakes.

He protects you too. Thank Him, don’t let your heart miss a chance to be grateful.
