Daily Devotional – 9/12/16 “It is well!”

Sometimes you have to cut your losses and move on. Sometimes you have to take the L just to keep your mind. Sometimes, you’ve got to walk away with a “It is well,” praise on your lips! See, we’ve been so accustomed to, “After you’ve done all you can do, just stand,” but then what? Yes, you should stand on God’s word but what I love about God, He allows you to take His word with you. This means, stop standing still in places and with people that have yet to yield anything positive. Baby, sometimes you have to release folk and places and while you’re packing say, ‘it is well.’ While you’re pulling out the driveway, say it is well. And even while you’re starting over, say it is well!

Losing friends who I thought had my best interest but turned out to be users – it is well. Moving on from places that stunted my growth – it is well. Doing God’s will despite what you think – it is well. Letting you go even when it hurts – it is well. Walking in my purpose even if I can’t see the way yet – it is well. For the bible says in Psalm 62:5, “Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him.”

In other words, what you meant for my bad – it is well. What you say about me, it is well. How you treat me when I was the one who fed you, it is well. When you ignore me after I spent time away from family to be a shoulder for you to cry on, it is well. When you can’t celebrate with me, it is well. Why? Well because my soul finds rest in God. Why? Because God is my hope! Why? Because this world can’t do my any harm. Today, it is well! Tomorrow, it’ll be well!
