Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them.
For the Lord your God will personally go ahead of you.
It is one thing to merely know a scripture and recite it and
another thing to know it and then experience it.
Yesterday was quite an interesting day.
I took a long walk in order to clear my mind on certain challenges I’m faced with.
As I walked. I wondered why nobody understood how I felt … I felt alone.
I went from one thought to another and soon enough I was tired from the long walk.
I needed to sit and rest a bit. I just kept walking and hoping for that perfect spot to sit.
I finally found it and living in a francophone country,
I just parlait (spoke) the little French I had acquired and the shop owner was fine with my request to sit.
I watched the lady carry out her business transactions and something just kept telling me she could speak English. I normally would have ignored the thought but not this time. So I asked.
She spoke perfect English …
That’s not even the interesting part. After chatting for about 10 minutes, we naturally started trying to know more about ourselves and to our utmost shock we happen to be cousins (I’m from a very small minority in Nigeria) the odds are so small but I’m not kidding you! I met my own cousin in a strange land on this day that I felt alone.
OMG! This made me meditate on Deuteronomy 31: 6. The experience brought this scripture to life. I understand it.
Even if I had a million thoughts of how God would reassure me, I never would have thought of the option of meeting a cousin in a strange land. 🙂
Jeremiah 29: 11
For I know the plans I have for you, declare the Lord,
plans for welfare and not for evil to give you a future and a hope.
So, to anyone who is facing a challenge at work, at home or a health issue, be rest assured that you aren’t alone. God is working things out for your good.
It might not turn out how you have planned it because God has His own plans.
Just trust Him. You are not alone.
