I don’t know about you, but I sure have those days when I get discouraged. Sometimes, it feels like nothing is going right. Perhaps you feel like nothing you do is moving you forward toward your destiny, and you feel discouraged. If you feel like that, check out today’s Bible verse from Psalm 118:23.
the LORD has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes. – Psalm 118:23 (NIV)
Sometimes, in the mundaneness of life, it’s easy to wonder if God is really moving. Yet He is. Even when we don’t feel like we’re doing anything BIG for God. In those times when we feel like we’re trying, but nothing is working, and no one notices our stand for God, we have to keep ourselves encouraged.
Knowing that one day, we will stand back, look at our lives, and say, look at this. It is all the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes. Even though we can’t often see progress when we’re moving slowly forward one day at a time, progress is being made.
One day, if you keep saying yes to God, you’ll look back at your life and be able to see the progress that was made. For example, look at the life of George Muller. George built a ministry helping orphans and overseas missionaries. And yet, the day he opened his orphanage, not one child showed up. He could have gotten discouraged and given up. Yet He didn’t.
George kept saying yes to Jesus, and as a result, one day he looked back at his life, he helped around 10,000 orphans and gave lots of money to missions work around the world. George could say, it was all the Lord’s doing. And it was marvelous in his eyes.
The same is true for you. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t see big things in your life yet. Keep following after God. Do what He tells you to do daily, even if it’s a small thing. One day you’ll look back on your life and see that God has moved greatly on your behalf.
