It’s Working…

No matter your situation or circumstance don’t give in and don’t give up if you are a child of God!!! Keep the faith knowing that even if it doesn’t feel good to you (in the flesh) it is still working for your good and is good for you (in the spirit)!!! Stop looking at things with your natural eyes and judging, instead walk in the spirit. Change your perspective!! Trials may hurt, but they teach you humility, cause you to be more sympathetic and empathetic to those round about you, and draw you to your knees and ultimately to the feet of our Lord. Don’t get bitter instead allow your cross to make you better. Trust God. Keep the faith. It’s working for your good!!! God can and will do exceedingly, abundantly more than you can ever ask or think if you let Him!!!!

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.

1Thessalonians 5:18 In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

It’s working for my good!! It’s working for your good!!! All for his purpose and glory!!! Trust Him!!!

If I…

Matthew 9:21 For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be made whole.

If I … Wow. Two little words, yet so powerful!!
If I… Words that expressed determination to press through and to press on no matter the obstacles that lie ahead!
If I… Words that required tremendous faith to reach out to the great physician!
If I… Words that required ignoring past disappointments and failures.
If I.. Words that drove out doubt and no options.
If I… Words that expressed hope and a personal choice.
If I… Words that gave focus in the midst of naysayers, doubters, and societies set rules.
If I… Words that went beyond what was seen with the natural eye and pushed forward into the supernatural, spiritual.
If I… Words that revealed understanding that true faith requires action!

Do You Still Believe The Promise?

God is able to do great things in our lives if we would just believe.  It is necessary for us to build up our faith in God by studying the Word of God, praying, and fasting to draw closer unto Him regularly.  During these times of seeking God with our whole hearts and minds we are able to find peace and quietness in the midst of the storms of our life.  It is when we rest in God that we are able to hear Him speak into our lives to build up our faith, our joy, and our committment to Him and the work of the ministry.

Often we receive the promises of God with great joy and faith, but over time fear, doubt, and disbelief may begin to crowd in to separate us from God and His promises.  After God speaks something into our life we may be faced with unexpected trials and tribulations that we feel we can not bear, but during this time we must continue to hold on and trust in Him.

We must confess with our mouths and believe in our hearts that the word is true when it is declared ” If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.” (John 15:7)  Then, we must cry out before the Lord in our private times of prayer for his direction, his annointing, and his strength to endure until our change comes.  We must turn our face away from the problem and towards our God who is our provider and our keeper.  The bible proclaims ” The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand. ” (Psalm 121:5)

If God has spoken a word into our life, a promise from on high, then we must hold on to it no matter what comes our way or who tries to hinder our walk through negative words or actions.   We must continue to stand and believe God will do exactly what he has said he would do at the appointed time and place.  We must continue to walk in obedience and faith knowing that God will provide our way of escape and has already ordained the provisions be supplied that we will need to walk in victory.  If God said it then that’s enough, no more doubting, no more crying, no more trying to do it ourselves.  We must wait on God and follow His directions when he speaks, and then we will see God’s hand moving in our lives, and the lives of those round about us, to fulfill his promises just as he said he would do.

Let’s praise Him in advance, knowing that if God said it, it will truly come to pass!

 

Words To Stand On…

 

1 John 2:25

25 And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.

 

Hebrews 11:1

1  Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

 

Genesis 45:4-9

And Joseph said unto his brethren, Come near to me, I pray you. And they came near. And he said, I am Joseph your brother, whom ye sold into Egypt.

Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life.

For these two years hath the famine been in the land: and yet there are five years, in the which there shall neither be earing nor harvest.

And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance.

So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God: and he hath made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt.

Haste ye, and go up to my father, and say unto him, Thus saith thy son Joseph, God hath made me lord of all Egypt: come down unto me, tarry not:

True Riches

Many seek after worldly gain and pleasures; however, these things are temporary and will all pass away. The things of this world lead to loss, sorrow, and ultimately death. However, the wise man or woman seeks after the things of God that cannot be stolen away. The bible declares “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”  Matthew 6:33.

God knows exactly what we need and desire, and He will provide according to His will and purpose for our life and ultimately the kingdom. We must simply trust Him and obey. Those who desire true treasure must seek after these eight additions to their character and the bible says you will never fall: faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, godliness, brotherly kindness, and charity. 2 Peter 1

Seek true riches on today!!

Words To Stand On…

Matthew 6:33

6 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Matthew 24:35

35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

2 Peter 1: 3-11

3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;

6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;

7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.

8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.

10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Time To Pray

Too often we are guilty of thinking or saying “all I can do now is pray”, as if it is the least and last option available. However, this should not be our thinking as a Christian. Prayer is not a last resort. Prayer is a privilege and a right we now have to go to our Father on our own behalf (and others). There is no longer a need for someone else to do this for you. Jesus paid the ultimate sacrifice, so that we could freely go before God ourselves. Let’s not take this for granted. Jesus prayed, the disciples prayed, the saints of old prayed, and so should we! Prayer is the BEGINNING for great things to occur: miracles, signs, wonders, healing, deliverance, direction, peace of God, etc. It’s time to get things back in order. Shall we pray?

Words To Stand On…

Jude 1: 20-21

20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,

21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

Philippians 4:6-7

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

2 Chronicles 7:14

14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
