God at work in my life

I called.  He answered.

“Lord my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me.” Psalm 30:2.

“For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.” Psalm 30:5.

I am starting a new part-time job today.

My anxiety increased as this day approached.  There were so many things that I was uncertain of.  I wanted answers and those who had them seemed in no hurry to give them.

Maybe I should forget the whole thing?  That thought crossed my mind.

But two things I’ve been writing about came back into my thoughts: (1) I need God’s help, but am I “cherishing” sin, and (2) My anxiety is pleasing to Satan.

I was asking God to help me without examining my relationship to Him.  His listening to me is related to my behavior. I confessed the things that I was messing up and asked for His forgiveness.

I went into war mode against Satan.  Every time fear came (and it was often), I asked God to bind Satan because I knew he was behind it.  By binding Satan, I kept choosing to leave things with God.  And that’s what I did. Last night was anything but the best sleep I’ve ever had because of Satan’s repeated attacks.

I awoke today having left the uncertainties in God’s hand.

I looked at my phone messages before I shut down my phone for today’s early AM men’s Bible study.  There was a message from my new boss that lifted the concerns I had yesterday.  Unexpected but once again; God in the details.

“You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent.  Lord, my God, I will praise you forever.” Psalm 30:11-12.

Conclusion: God knows best.  I must live in that Light.
