Proverbs 16:9, “We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.” (NLT)
How can anyone go and help those who have loss so much…experienced great fear…and endured such hardship? We can only do this because we have the love of the Lord wrapped around our hearts…a supernatural love…a love that does not come from our human comforts, but is hyper-charged to love by the Holy Spirit in us. It is when we snuff-out what we want, then in turn do for others what they can not do for themselves and come along side them…that we grow.
John 15:13, “No one can have greater love than to give his life for his friends.” New Life Version (NLV)
My life is what I want…do…have. And when you or I give up those things to serve others we are putting someone else’s needs before our own.
Hebrews 13:16, “Do not forget to do good and to help one another, because these are the sacrifices that please God.” (GNT)
Lesson learned…The Lord holds us all in His hands and loves it when we trust Him…In and out of the storms that come.
