Daily Devotional – 5/29/17 “You don’t have to suffer to lose!”

We didn’t lose power during the storm Saturday night but we did Sunday morning. Then when I got up this morning, the power was out again. It wasn’t for long but no power is no power. Anyway, I couldn’t go back to sleep and while I laid here, God told me to tell somebody ….

You don’t have to suffer through a storm to lose some stuff!

Beloved, you can be minding your business and the death angel will kick in the door of your heart and snatch a loved one. You can be driving, following all the rules and paying attention yet in a second you can lose your car because somebody else wasn’t. You can be on a job, top employee who never calls in sick but you’ll be the one laid off due to budget cuts. You can be the healthiest person in the family whose never drank or smoked yet somehow you’ll end up with cancer that takes your hair, a body part and a little bit of your strength. You do not have to suffer through a storm but you can still lose some stuff!

However, even after losing some stuff, don’t lose faith. Don’t lose your mind. And don’t lose your trust in the God of power. Yea, you can and will lose some stuff (people and things) but God never loses His power to restore. And the best part about it, He doesn’t have to wait for help to arrive before He restores!
