I find that many times in our life that situations can spiral out of our control and we just don’t know where to turn. As I was sitting and praying one day I heard the Lord speak to my heart and simply say, “Be still and know that I am God”. I can never tell you the peace that immediately came over me with the reminder from Pslams that he always has my back even when I feel alone. In Deuteronomy 31:6 the word says, ”Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee”. The enemy wants us to walk around discouraged and afraid all the time and become paralyzed by hopelessness and believe that there is no way to make it any better.
In my years as a financial planner I have found so many who feel exactly this way with their financial situation. Bills that have stacked up, plummeting credit scores, debt that has become unmanageable and fear of never being able to retire like they have always dreamed of are just a few of the things I have seen and heard from clients. Our God is a God of victory and not defeat. We are the head and not the tail. We can do all things through Christ who strengthen us. Greater is he that is in me than he that is in the world! We are overcomers! If, we choose to be. I find that it is a choice. We can have victory over any situation in our life if we choose to and ask God for help. However, we must first make a choice of whether we are going to walk in victory or in defeat. It is a decision that we must make to choose to hold on to the promises of his Word and decide to have the faith knowing that He is God and knows what we need.

I am happy to say that after a long 6 months that God brought a very special doctor into my wife’s life that dug in and found the root of her problem and today she is in full recovery from her illness. My father had surgery this past Monday and is recovering at the hospital expecting to be released tomorrow with a great prognosis of living the rest of his day’s cancer free. Moral of the story? It all turned out OK. I just needed to have had a little more faith in my almighty God because he already knew the end of these stories before they even began. Just as he knows the end of all of our stories and situations that we are currently in. Now, I just wished I would have made better choices each day to have faith that he was going to take care of my beloved father and wife as it would have saved me from so much pain and suffering that I brought upon myself. The great thing is that tomorrow, I get to wake up and make that choice again, just hopefully wiser this time. What choice will you make? In Christ’s love! Rob
