“Let them shout for joy and be glad, who favor my righteous cause; and let them say continually, ‘Let the Lord be magnified, Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant’ ” Psalm 35:27, NKJV.
Sometimes, there is a misconception that as a believer you should always be going through a hard time. If everything is going well, then something is wrong. We’ve all been there. I’ve had to deal with handling not the times that I’ve struggled in my walk and in my life. I can do that well. I know how to suffer well, but I have to and I’m learning how to reign well. Because the truth is everybody isn’t struggling.
If you’re not struggling, or going through tough times, it’s okay. When what you’ve prayed for arrives in your life, praise God for it, enjoy it and it’s okay to do so. He brought you a long way. As you sit in your Promised Land, it’s a blessing to have gone through your wilderness, and now God says enjoy your prosperity–enjoy your peace.
This is the Father’s expected end for every son and He takes pleasure in the prosperity of His servant. Be abundantly grateful and allow God to use you, to your life to be a testimony to let someone else know that’s in a tough situation that God will bring them out also.
Prayer: Father, thank You for encouraging me to enjoy where You’ve brought me. I’m a believer and I’m blessed, and it’s okay. Now, use me to strengthen my brothers. Use me, in any way I can, to help someone else through their struggle. Make me a blessing today. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
