Episode 31 - Session in Review Series feat. Rep. Alan Seabaugh

 

'I waited and waited and waited some more, patiently, knowing God would come through for me. Then, at last, he bent down and listened to my cry. He stooped down to lift me out of danger from the desolate pit I was in, out of the muddy mess I had fallen into. Now he’s lifted me up into a firm, secure place and steadied me while I walk along his ascending path. A new song for a new day rises up in me every time I think about how he breaks through for me! Ecstatic praise pours out of my mouth until everyone hears how God has set me free. Many will see his miracles; they’ll stand in awe of God and fall in love with him! Blessing after blessing comes to those who love and trust the Lord. They will not fall away, for they refuse to listen to the lies of the proud. O Lord, our God, no one can compare with you. Such wonderful works and miracles are all found with you! And you think of us all the time with your countless expressions of love— far exceeding our expectations! It’s not sacrifices that really move your heart. Burnt offerings, sin offerings—those aren’t what bring you joy. But when you open my ears and speak to me, I become your willing servant, your prisoner of love for life. So I said, “Here I am! I’m coming to you as a sacrifice , for in the prophetic scrolls of your book you have written about me. I delight to fulfill your will, my God, for your living words are written upon the pages of my heart.”'

 

A beautiful picture of God’s faithfulness and a worthy response. Such a great encouragement to keep our eyes on the Lord, to fill our minds and hearts with thanksgiving and worship. And it reminds me of a challenge the Lord gave me years ago - He said you don’t have to have bad days. Every day can be a good day. It’s all about mindset. It’s all about choosing what you set your affections and your thoughts on. You can be a person who counts every single thing that goes wrong in a day and stews over that calling it a bad day, or you can live in gratitude.
