Now, Where Was I?


Have you ever had a thought that needed to be expressed, but unforeseen interruptions such as PASSWORD ISSUES blocked your progress? No, of course not! That sort of thing only happens to me.

Don’t worry, reading audience, I haven’t lost it quite yet. Such interruptions seem only to happen to me. Everyone’s daily walk is filled with happenstances and interruptions. As a wiser man than I once said, “Life is what happens to you on the way to fulfilling your plans.” An even wiser man said, “The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps.”(Proverbs 16:9) And then, just to squelch all argument, he also said, “Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation. When his breath departs, he returns to the earth; on that very day his plans perish.” (Psalms 146:3-4) Are you the “prince” of your life?

“Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving, and perform your vows to the Most High, and call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me.”(Psalms 50:14-15) Sometimes, dredging up sincere gratitude in difficult situations seems like a sacrifice, but if you belong to God through Christ Jesus you really have no choice. Your flesh will always struggle against a spirit of gratitude toward your Father God. Why? Because that carnal nature is its own god.

You must find gratitude in your heart for each day God gives you, while always maintaining readiness for them to end. “For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving.” (1 Timothy 4:4) “Everything created by God” includes each day he gives you, or whatever circumstance ends them.

By that perspective, an “Incorrect Username or Password” message seems rather trivial.
