Peace in the storm
We should get up each morning believing for a good day. Expecting favor, knowing that God is directing our steps. At the same time, we should
realize, everything may not go perfect. Every person may not treat us right; our plans may not stay on schedule. There may be some bumps in
the road and things that we didn’t see coming. If you’re only going to enjoy the day if your plans work out then you’re setting yourself up for
disappointment. At the start of the day you need to make a decision that no matter what comes against you, you’re not going to get upset. No
matter what someone says you’re not going to be offended, no matter what delays, disappointments, bad breaks, you’re not going to be sour.
You’ve already made up your mind to stay in peace. This day is a gift from God. We are not always going to be here. You have to put your foot
down and say I am not going to let these same things keep upsetting me. I am going to stay in peace even if the boss is unfair, even if my spouse
is grumpy, even if my flight is delayed. Even if the medical report isn’t good, this is the day the Lord has made. I have made up my mind. I’m
gonna enjoy it. God saw everything that happened to you. He knows what was unfair; he knows how you were treated. Nothing is a surprise to
him. If you’ll keep moving forward, He’ll not only bring you out, He’ll bring you out better…..
