As I sat down to write today I immediately heard these words sung in my mind,
“Grey skies are gonna clear up, put on a happy face.”
Then the Spirit of the Lord spoke saying,
“Do not let the momentary grey skies define your day. The promises that I have made are true and sure. Allow faith to cause your face to smile again.”
We can smile even when the shadows come to cast doubt upon the promises that God has made. We know that our God is above every cloud of gloom that wants to dictate a different story and cause our souls to begin to doubt.
“But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.” James 1:6
Doubt is like a grey sky. It is an enemy that creates mental conflict that leads directly to fear. And fear is a not merely a grey sky but a black, raging storm that tosses its victims relentlessly. On the other hand; faith and assurance are like the sunrise of a new day that dispels darkness; bringing hope and peace. Peace calms and carries you through the day, making your heart glad again.
If you are experiencing a grey sky today, do not let it dictate doubt to you. Put doubt under your feet and smile in assurance that the faith that you have been standing in is your reality. Let His hope and peace carry you above the clouds to where you can experience the Son in the fullness of His light.
God’s sons and daughters are not restrained to live under physical and earthly circumstances but we have been given access to heavenly places. It is there that we can “bask in the Son”. This is where our hearts are made happy and a smile returns to our faces.
“A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit.” Proverbs 15:13
Let your spirt soar above the grey skies so that you can sing a new song. Clarity is in the heavenly places where nothing blocks the Son and where He gives wisdom for every step ahead. I hear a new song and a new stanza being sung,
“I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright, bright Sun-Shiny day.”
Smile…it’s gonna be a “Son-Shiny” day!
