Divine Love’s Guidance

While reading of the future predictions of world affairs, it is tempting to become worried.  The temptation is that there is something larger than God and can look hopeless.  Then, I was led to re-read  a paragraph from an article  that states, “When the heart yearns for divine Love’s guidance, we can be assured of being gently directed to where we need to be, and when we need to be there.  Spiritual growth accompanies all of our desires Spiritward, and divine inspiration never leaves us in a rut or treading endlessly through old ways of thinking.”

Once again, I was reminded that “Perfect love cast out fear.”  Also, a promise from Isaiah 41:10 was so reassuring which reads, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”    Once again, I will ask God to reveal what I am to know and trust Him in everything.



Sometime when I experience difficulty, there is a need to remind myself that this is to strengthen my spiritual muscles, rather than punishment for a wrong-doing.  The same concept is as we exercise, the physical body is strengthened and as we pray, we grow spiritually.  Before a baby bird is born, it must peck out of the shell to strengthen it’s neck muscles.  The mother bird could easily help, but could harm the bird in the process.

Changing my view and seeing what God sees makes all the difference.

“Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time.  Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.”  I Peter 5:6-7
