If You Are Happy and You Know It

You need to allow the providence of God to rule over your circumstances.  Trust Him to take you where you need to go when you need to be there.

I know he takes lots of criticism but I like Pastor Joel Osteen.  Osteen is like a happy psalm. The man takes his gift of encouragement for real.  This week he is talking about dare to dream bigger than God. (now, I can dream pretty big) But one of the points he made, was how many of us get caught up in unbelief.  We think God won’t do things for us.

You see David had the same idea. In Psalm 27, he was surrounded by his enemies and he figured to ask the Lord for one thing. It wasn’t get rid of my enemies, torture them, etc. David asked to live come live with the Lord. David knew that no matter what came against him, that if he was with the Lord, it wouldn’t be a problem.

I don’t know what type of enemy you are facing today, but I know someone big enough to handle them.

I am still confident of this:

I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.

Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD .  (Psalm 27:13-14)
