God is Everywhere: Don't Shrink Back

Optimal Living Magazine - Tanisha H. Shaw

When God blesses you with more, are you tempted to forget where God delivered you from, or does your life reflect His goodness?

Hebrews 10: 38-39 says, "But My righteous one will live by faith; and if he shrinks back, I will take no pleasure in him.”  But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls. "

When I was a little girl, my mother told me that God is EVERYWHERE, always protecting me and watching.  This little bit of information as a child helped to shape my character. So, as much as I wanted to run and do things I had no business doing - I knew how far to go as a child, a teenager, and now as an adult.  I don't need law enforcement to keep me in check, because the Holy Spirit knows how to grab my attention and bring me back to where I need to be.

So, as you go on with your day - I hope you keep a few things in mind; watch your mouth, keep your thoughts right, keep forgiving, be kind to others, let the Holy Spirit order your steps - and, always remember you serve a Good God that loves you and is always watching.
