A Word for Today: “Be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 — Word For Life Says…

To say that Christ has won is an understatement. He has literally crushed, obliterated, and stands on the head of every adversary we may face today. The world may think they have won but Jesus will flip the script on them every time and show who He really is. He has “disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross,” (Col. 2:15; NIV). His enemies are being made a footstool at His feet (Hebrews 10:13; NIV). He is the King of all kings and Lord of all lords and will conquer everything and everybody that tries to war against Him (Revelation 17:14).In case you haven’t figured it out yet, WE ARE ON THE WINNING SIDE! Be of good cheer!

He Knows Your Walking!

“He knoweth thy walking through this great wilderness: these forty years the Lord thy God hath been with thee; thou hast lacked nothing.” Deuteronomy 2:7

He knows your walking.  Every step you take has His attention.  The wilderness comes with many perils.  The wilderness can be a place of lack, yet God reminds His people, “thou hast lacked nothing,” Deut. 2:7.

What wilderness are you in right now?  Our God knows.  Does your desert place bring tears?  Is companionship missing in your world?  Nothing is hidden from the eyes of our Father.  The steps you take in this weary land are marked with His supreme knowledge.

When Moses rehearsed their traveling through this land, he reminded them of the good times and the bad – and yet, through it all, God saw their walking.  As His beloved, He knew where they were and what they were dealing with.

The same can be said for each of us.  God sees the paths we take.  He sees the trudging through the murky times.  He sees the hard roads traveled.  He recognizes that every trip is not a time of prancing through the peaceful meadows, but there are hills to climb, some slippery, some steep.  He recognizes the sweat and the effort it takes to keep going.  He sees every choice, every footfall.

My friends,  some days when we walk it seems we are walking through a river of tears, walking in waters too deep with currents that are too strong.  But the encouragement for our souls is it is not lost on our God and no step we take is wasted.  Every step in the right direction, regardless of how hard it may be, will lead to our place of promise.

Some days it may seem that we are walking in circles – not sure what we are doing or where we are going.  But while we are walking, we can walk with hope.  We can walk in faith (yes, even if you can’t feel it, we can still step out in faith by just moving forward).  We can walk in the confidence in the victory that lay ahead for us.

In the unsure moments, the disappointing moments, and the hurting moments, He sees it all.

Knowing that God sees me walking through this great wilderness brings a special measure of comfort to my soul.  The wilderness may take its toll on you, and it may even make us question some things along the way – but, even then, and even there, our steps are known.  Our hearts can be filled with this great truth even in the wilderness.

My friends, we hold so much in us while we are walking through this wilderness.  We experience so much in this dry place.  Each of us has encountered a wilderness area we may be walking through, have walked through, or are about to walk through.  It is in this season of life, that the struggle from day to day can be overwhelming.  For some, you have walked so long and so far, that you may feel like you are lost in a desert.  But, no matter what stage of your walking, God still sees you.  His eyes have not left you and His heart is for you.
