Nowadays, the devil see you making positive changes and he will send anyone and everything your way to distract you. He works hard against you, so you have to stay ten toes ahead of him but not sharing your greatness God is dealing you. I think of it as playing spades. Never let the enemy know the cards God has dealt you to do better. God is your partner through it all. Without him your whole life can be reshuffled before your eyes. While the devils sit across from you rejoicing in your failures or lacking of books. I need all my books. I want all 13 of my books with God as my partner the whole way through.
So I am learning to be encouraged when obstacles come my way. My mother always said “if you hate loosing, why give up? You are your only competitor, because the devil has already lost that’s the purpose of hell, for losers. You the only one who can decide what you want to do next. Are you going to play or throw it in. No matter how many times you lose, always be content with what you have in order to receive better. You have to learn to see those obstacles as an indication of a fresh move from God. Now what you are going to do with it?”
So I am going to be content with this hand and play it out so that my better hand will come. I will not complain and throw it in because I know if hold out a little while longer God is going to give me the victory in “EVERY“ circumstances of my life through the hands he deals me.
Thank you Lord, for humbling me to be content with what whatever hand you deal me. Thank you for giving me the heart not to complain and throw it in, but the strength to keep playing to reach victory. Thank you for the mind to seek you as my partner through it all. Amen!!
I’m learning to be encouraged!
