One of my kid’s favorite comedy routines begins with that quote. It sounds like an existential question but it turns into an embarrassing moment on battlefield tactics. I find myself asking that question often. Not in a confused inquiry of our Creator, but in a grounding quest to observe my purpose in a situation. I’ve come to a point to realize that I’m blessed to bless others. There is a purpose to the troubles we endure and why we survive so many hardships. I’ve asked Jesus for His will in my life. The hardships have not ceased, but the struggles and anxieties have. Now, I have something to give, blessings to share. Encouragement and Peace I can share with others. Encouraging others in Christ is so very important in these troubled days.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, the Father of compassion and God of all encouragement. He encourages us in every trouble, so that we may be able to encourage those who are in any trouble, through the very encouragement with which we ourselves are encouraged by God. 2 Cor 1:3-4(TLV)
Jesus is our leader, our shining light. He understands what you are going through.
Hebrews 4:16 “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who in every respect has been tested as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
The side benefit is that I get to stay in peace, the rest of the Lord, and know that he has good for me. Trust Him.
Cast your cares and focus on Jesus. When worry struggles to get a foothold, meditate on these verses.
1 Peter 5:7 “Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.”
Psalm 62:5 “Yes, my soul, find rest in God: my hope comes from him.”
Psalm 116:7 “Return to your rest, my soul, for the Lord has been good to you.”
Isaiah 26:3 ”You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.”
We are blessed and equipped for this. We are anointed for this battle!
Who can you bless today? Why are you HERE?
