DAY 71

What a difference a few days make. The first picture is from Saturday, the next one today, Monday.

Hard to believe?

The picture proves there was ice and snow. Three days later it doesn't seem possible.

It doesn't hurt to take 'pictures' of the times we know God has worked on our behalf. These pictures can come in the form of a journal, a note card, a verse typed and taped to your mirror.

In the heat of a hot dry summer, I'm going to look back on these pictures of ice and snow to remind myself that it will not always be a 100 degrees.

When walking through dry section of your journey, look back to the times when you saw God's fingerprints on your life.

They can be times you saw an awe inspiring sunset,
or held a newborn baby, a high snow topped peak, or meadow of lush green grass and flowers.

We've all had those moments. The times when we knew there was something else out there. A presence bigger than life. The One who made all things.

Store up those thoughts and images, for the dry times will come. Be prepared. Counter the doubts with proof.

James 4:7
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

The enemy works in the doubts of mankind. Fight him with your proof. For the devil is a liar. And all his temptings are rooted in doubt.

Prepare your case, keep a list of your proof when you knew God was there. And know that you have an advocate, Jesus, in heaven presenting your case to the Father.

Read Hebrews 11 for a record of the faith of others.

Keep a faith record of your own. Review it often and add to it when you have new proof of the miraculous hand of God. They don't all have to be big things, but often are small. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you remember them and write them down.
