Rainbow after the storm

October 30, 2006

Whatever you are going through right now God can turn the situation around.  Hebrews chapter 11 recounts just some of the Biblical characters who through faith had the impossible happen in their lives.

Don’t give up and think there’s no way out of whatever you are experiencing in your life at this present time, whether it’s problems with your finances, your relationship with someone, an issue at work, a struggle with habitual sin etc.  This is not the end of the road.  Satan tries to convince us that the pain and struggle we experience can’t be transformed, and in a way he’s telling the truth – in human strength things can’t be transformed!  However in God’s power and strength He can shine light into your dark situation.  What you’re experiencing now is not the best you can expect… THERE IS MORE!

There’s a rainbow after the storm!

    This is very uplifting. I have so much housework to do today, on top of the kids running around at my feet! Not so much a problem as a challenge!
    Have a good day, Maria

    I can agree with you Maria. There is More! God can take us on a journey that can blow our minds away all we have to do is trust him and let go and he will do the rest.

    Thanks for the reminder.

    There is a rainbow…..eventually. It can appear sooner or later, and that depends upon my obedience to Him.
    Thanks, and have a great day!

    I like that saying from sound of Music,

    whenever God closes a door he always opens a window.

    How did you find my blog, maria?

  9. I think the life of Joseph in the Old Testament illustrates well how God can turn things around in our lives. First, he was sold into slavery by his jealous brothers, but God was with him, and he ended up being put in charge of everything in his master Potiphar’s house. Next, Potiphar’s wife lies about Joseph and tells her husband that Joseph tried to rape her. He gets thrown into prison for doing absolutely nothing wrong, but the Bible says “and the Lord was with Joseph.” God gave him good favor in prison too, and he ends up interpreting a dream that Pharoah had, being released from prison and eventually becoming second in power in the land of Egypt next to Pharoah. God truly can make a way when it seems there is no way!

  10. Thanks for the encouragement. Our pastor spoke about Hebrews 11 in our service this weekend.

    Ah.. quote The Sound of Music and you’re immediately speaking my language – i love that film.

    God bless you all.
    p.s. I find peoples blogs quite randomly, often by other peoples blogrolls or comments on a site.
