What should we do when circumstances are completely against us and are out of control? “Bless the Lord at all times.”
What should we do when it seems that we are stagnant or dry in our Christian walk? “Bless the Lord at all times.”
Because God is worthy, because He is good, because He is in control of our lives, and because He loves us, we should bless Him always. We should magnify His Name, we should lift up our voices to Him in thanksgiving and honor.
But how can I do that? Everything is stacked up against me, and I am at the lowest point in my whole Christian life. I war with trials without and temptations within. How can I bless the Lord?
We can bless the Lord by faith. We can lift him up, because He is greater than any trial. He is in full control of our lives, and compared to eternity these are but light afflictions.
Don’t lose sight of eternity in your trials. Remember that heaven is our home, Jesus is our reward, and that we will see Him soon if we endure to the end. Remember that He redeemed our lives from destruction.
Take your eyes off of yourself and your momentary trials. Lift your eyes toward the heavens and bless the Lord!
