A few people have been asking me whether I’m continuing my Daily Devotional posts into February. Truth be told, I’ve been asking myself and God that question too.
This month has been my best month for views ever. I knew all along that my January devotionals were a God thing. I mean, He told me to do them so it would be kind of rude if He just left me hanging every day when I sat down to write them, right?
But He truly delivered. He turned up every single day. When I read back the devotionals I wrote, I can see Him in them. I’m just Mieke – the girl who, a few months ago struggled to read my Bible.
All glory goes to God, and only God for those devotionals.
My time in knowing Him, has taught me that He loves seasons. So for a long time, I didn’t know whether Daily Devotionals were something that He was telling me to do after January. For the past couple of days I have been nudging Him asking HellloooOooOoO?? Just a simple yes or no to the Feb Devotionals is all I need!
I never did receive the yes or the no answer I wanted so badly. However, this past week I have been faced with spiritual warfare. The devil has worked tactfully in trying to make me question my faith. And it worked, for about half an hour.
But thankfully I have amazing people in my life who opened my eyes to the devil’s attack.
When I sat down and really thought about why the devil would attack me at this time in this last week of January, I instantly knew that he was trying to put a halt to my devotionals. He didn’t want me to continue into February.
The reason why I’m writing this post isn’t to brag about my devotionals or to delve into some deep speech about the devil. It’s an encouragement to any of you who are facing similar problems. The devil attacks when God is about to do something bigger. The devil tries to stand in God’s tracks, preventing Godly things from taking place.
The struggle you’re facing – it’s not because of you. It’s not because of the people around you (although it may be them that the devil is using). It’s not because God loves you less now. It’s not because of the strength your relationship with God.
God has put this word strong on my heart these past couple of days – Stay the path.
Pick yourself back up, dust yourself off and keep walking. You’re not at your destination yet.
So yes, we have the green light for the February Devotionals.
I hope you enjoy them, and I’m praying that you see God in them just as I do when I’m writing them. I pray that He speaks to you through them.
