Our Spacious Place

Psalm 31:7-8

I will rejoice and be glad in Your faithful love because You have seen my affliction. You have known the troubles of my life, and have not handed me over to the enemy. You have set my feet in a spacious place.

God knows our afflictions, and He has not rejected us or abandoned us. We must learn to turn our cares over to Him and let Him do what we cannot do. We can literally rejoice in our hardships, knowing that He is at work and He will not hand us over to the enemy.

At times, I know I feel limited by what I perceive as restrictions. In reality, however, God has set my feet in a spacious place. I limit myself by choosing to worry and focus upon things that I cannot control. Satan knows we can accomplish much and be of great value to God when we are given plenty of open space and freedom to operate. His strategy is to make us feel restricted by distracting us and creating worry and anxiety over issues God already has under control.

Look for the wide-open space God has given you today, and rejoice in His faithful love for you. He has seen your affliction, and He knows your troubles. He will not allow you to be handed over to the enemy for destruction because you are of great value to Him. He is fighting this battle for you, and He wins every time! Get busy in your spacious place, and watch God do wonders for you.

Have a blessed day!
