(Proverbs 8:32-36) Now then, my sons (daughters), listen to me; blessed are those who keep my ways. Listen to my instruction and be wise; do not ignore it. Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway. For whoever finds me finds life and receives favor from the Lord. But whoever fails to find me harms himself; all who hate me love death."
We are so powerful when we are in church. Do you ever notice how happy you are when you are in church worshipping and praising God? You are so elated and you feel like you can take on the world. You feel the troubles of the day, slightly lifting off your shoulders. It is always a good feeling when you hear the choir sing your favorite song and you began to feel deliverance through your tears. You are so happy for 2 hours of worship services and sometimes you wish you could stay in the church all day. You know that as soon as you leave the church, the mean world is waiting for you right outside those doors.
Now that service is over, you try so hard to follow God's instructions. Your try your best to live righteous before the Lord. But then here comes the old habits and old nature. You messed up again and now you feel so bad that you think that God will not bless you. You think that you wasted your time going to church. You think that you have blown all your blessings. God knows all your shortcomings and He knows what pitfalls you are facing. As long as you keep trying, God will always be there for you. I don't care how many times you mess up right after church, God already knew you would face whatever dilemma you are facing. Just keep your faith in God, knowing that He has made provisions for you and your mistakes.
Woman of God, let the above scripture be a word of encouragement for you. God clearly states that you will be blessed as long as you listen to Him and keep His ways. As long as you are searching for Him, He will always be there for you. Keep going straight and don't let the devil make you doubt whether or not God will bless you. God is true to His word, always. God is not a man that He should lie. The devil is the father of lies. If you work on the days that services are held, find some time in your day to spend alone with God. If you have Tuesdays off of work, then God will accept your Tuesdays as your day to worship and praise Him. Don't get caught up in what day everyone else go to church. Church is just a building and if you decide to have church in your bedroom then now that's church to you. Don't let the enemy trick you into thinking that you have to wait until Sunday to have your worship experience with God. God is not concerned about what day it is. LET US PRAY!
If you are in need of prayer, someone to talk to or just touch and agree with, the prayers of the righteous avails much, two are better than one.
Heavenly Father, I thank you that you are with me through all my shortcomings. Lord, I pray that you forgive me for my sins. Forgive me Lord for the things that I can not seem to get right for you. Lord, I am asking that you have mercy on me as I am growing more in you. Lord, I thank you for your blessing and thank you Lord that you keep blessing me. I will keep seeking after you, in Jesus name, Amen.
