Do you believe? Can you see?
25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.
26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.
27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.
28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.
Did you catch that??? His response…
My Lord AND my God.
Now he believed. Now he could see.
My Lord and MY GOD.
Do you believe? Can you see?
Remember this! The devil comes to kill, steal, and destroy! When the enemy of your soul speaks to your mind and says… It’s too much. You can’t handle this. Just give up. Just quit. You’re not going to make it through this. It’s a lie from the pits of hell!! ⚠️⚠️
You better turn to that devil, and announce…
I may feel weak right now, but My God is STRONG and MIGHTY!
God can handle THIS!! Nothing is impossible though Him!!
It’s NOT OVER until God says so! His timing is perfect!
I can do ALL THINGS through Christ Jesus who STRENGTHENS ME!
My God is ABLE TO DO EXCEEDINGLY, ABUNDANTLY MORE THAN I could ever ask or think!
121 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
2 My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.
6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
8 The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
In the midst of all that is going on, we the called of Christ, should not panic or fret. Let us get quiet before our King and listen. Let us prepare ourselves that we might be able to come before His presence without fear. Let us show the love of Christ to those round about us in the midst of diverse trials and suffering, and become more diligent in proclaiming the gospel. We must be more vigilant than ever before. Watch AND pray. All that is happening was already foretold in the Bible. Read AND study. Warnings go out across pulpits continuously through the preached Word. Hear AND obey. God reveals things to those who seek Him, so that current events are not a surprise. Watch AND listen. He will personally show you things to come. Get quiet before the Lord. Pray. Listen. God will always provide an answer. He will always provide a way of escape. Even in death, heaven is our reward. Do not fret as them who have no hope. Our hope is in the Lord!! It’s time to awake out of sleep. Having a form of godliness is NOT enough in this day and time! Pray without ceasing!! The alarm has sounded long ago. Hear AND obey!!
Have a wonderful day!!
But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
22 It is of the Lord‘s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
24 The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
25 The Lord is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.
26 It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.
Everyone will not receive you, neither did they receive Christ.
Everyone will not understand you and the words that you speak, neither did they understand the parables that were spoken by Jesus himself.
Everyone may not judge you fairly and with kindness, but they entreated the Savior the same.
Everyone will not understand your actions, but move as the Spirit of God leads you and according to His timing anyway.
God knows exactly who He is reaching for in this season, and what must be accomplished in this last day and hour.
Trust Him!! Seek after Him!!
