The Bible says, people look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart. You may be at your weakest right now, but God has bigger plans for you! It is His joy to see you hope and receive from Him. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength!
[ "In Your unfailing love, You will lead the people You have redeemed. In Your strength You will guide them to Your holy dwelling." Exodus 15:13 ]
The enemy may be threatening you today with thoughts that scare you or bring you down. Tune out those voices in your mind! Instead, listen to what God has promised. Through the blood of Jesus, you were given the weapon that will protect you from any attack. Believe that the blood of Jesus is more than enough to save you from the trouble that you are going through. Believe that because of what Jesus did on the cross, the enemy has no power over you.
[ "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you. He will never leave you nor forsake you."-Deuteronomy 31:6 ]
If fear and confusion overflows in your mind today, God is reminding you to resist it and not let your hearts be troubled. Fill your mind with His Word. Declare out loud that because of what Jesus has done for you, never again will you be a slave to fear. Let nothing discourage you for you have a Father in Heaven who will take care of everything you need.
“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” -John 14:27
We all face moments in our lives where we have to choose between hope or fear. When confronted with huge challenges, we must remember not to let it control us. Instead, we should concentrate on trusting in God who is more than able to provide all our needs. When we place our hope in Him, we can be assured that He will equip us to get through the day victoriously.
“But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” -Isaiah 40:31
Each of us to some degree, can fool our friends and family about who we really are or what we truly feel. But it’s impossible to do that with God. He knows everything about us, and it makes Him really happy when He sees His children try their best to do His will. Always remember that every good deed done for His glory will never lose it’s reward.
[ "The Lord gives grace and glory. No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly." -Psalm 84:11 ]
To find the greatest joy in life, give your life to Christ. Seek Him first and you will clearly see the purpose of all the shaking, pruning and storms in your life. When we know God stands with us, it doesn’t matter who stands against us. Deep within all the burdens are the blessings that God has been preparing all along.
[ "And he became more and more powerful, because the LORD God Almighty was with him." -2 Samuel 5:10 ]
Sometimes we feel fearful about what will happen tomorrow. God is assuring us today that when we are in constant communication with Him through His Word, we will walk steadily in peace and victory. Jesus said, here on earth we will have trials and sorrows, but we must never give up. He has already won the victory for us.
“I have told you all this so that you may have peace in Me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” -John 16:33
Are you in a storm today? Do you need healing? Refuse to let the word “impossible” stop you, because Jesus said, “With God, all things are possible!” No matter how worst the situation is, you will get through this storm! Never stop believing. Always remember that it’s not about what you can do, but what God can do with your life when it’s fully surrendered to Him.
“I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?”-Jeremiah 32:27
It’s so hard to find someone you can trust nowadays. Disappointments can happen anytime. Sometimes, even the people closest to your heart fail at their promises. Sometimes unexpected things happen. Whenever you feel you have no one else to hold on to & no one else to trust, this is where God will show Himself faithful and true. Entrust everything to God, His Word will never fail you and His plan will always prevail.
[ "So is My Word that goes out from My mouth: It will not return to Me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it." - Isaiah 55:10 ]
God will use people to bless us. No matter what our need is today, He is reminding us that He already gave us the principle on how to receive from Him. Jesus said, “do to others as you would have them do to you.” Do you need mercy? Show mercy. You need love? Give love. Do you need forgiveness? Help in time of trouble? Do it to other people and see what God will do for you. Time and again we are reminded to not grow weary in doing good. Why? Because there is indeed a harvest if we will never give up.
[ "So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets." -Matthew 7:12 ]
