The key how to receive from God is this, “just simply ask and don’t complain.” There’s nothing God loves more than keeping promises, answering prayers, performing miracles and fulfilling dreams. That’s who He is. That’s what He does. Always remember that there is nothing God cannot do, and He is a Father who loves to hear from His children. Come to Him with joy and gladness, and rest in the comfort of His loving embrace.
["And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us."-1 John 5:14 ]
[ "For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened."-Matthew 7:8 ]
It always feels great to be “chosen”. Whether it be in a love relationship, in work or friendship. But nothing compares with the joy in knowing that God has chosen us long before we were born, to be in a relationship with Him and be a part of His great plan. If you feel unloved and unwanted today, God wants to remind you that you were in His heart and mind from the very beginning. The plans He has for you is great beyond measure.
“Even before He made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into His own family by bringing us to Himself through Jesus Christ.”-Ephesians 1:4-5
What we think about matters a lot. That’s why when God asks us to redirect our minds, He is not trying to control us, but instead, He wants to save us from heartache and pain. He wants to protect us and keep us on the best path. Believe today that as you choose to think about things that pleases Him, He will show you His incredible grace and favor.
“For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”-2 Timothy 1:7
No matter who you are and what you do, you cannot please everyone all the time. Sometimes God allows difficult people in our lives to help us mature in our spiritual journey. You may not be able to stop another person’s actions, but you can stop the effect it has on you by remembering who you are in Christ and what Jesus asks you to do.
“Never pay back evil with more evil. Do things in such a way that everyone can see you are honorable. Do all that you can to live in peace with everyone.” -Romans 12:17-18
Nothing in this world can ever stop the blessings and full life God has planned for us. If you are feeling down today, our Father in heaven is reminding you that you can accomplish anything if you have Him on your side and if you consistently communicate with Him. Are you confused right now? Spend time with Him. He has a special message for you.
[ "And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love." - Romans 8:38-39 ]
Do you know that your life has a special purpose? Being “called to serve” God is not exclusive to church ministers and workers. Your life is your pulpit… how you live, how you treat people, how you serve and how you share. Always remember that God is not looking at our weaknesses, He is looking at our hearts. Whenever we serve others in any way, we are actually serving God and fulfilling His purpose for our lives.
[ "For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." -Ephesians 2:10 ]
King Solomon said, “Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that stays.” All over the world, many people are going through season of testings, trying their best to find a way out of the trouble they are facing. Today, God wants to remind us that He is the way out. If there’s one thing we need to focus on, it’s our relationship with Him. He promised that when we seek Him first, everything that we need shall be added unto us.
[ The LORD says, "I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you." - Psalm 32:8 ]
As children of God, our Heavenly Father may have given us different sets of talents or qualities, but He made sure to give all of us “equal opportunities” to be blessed by Him. How? By allowing each of us to come before His holy presence and hear directly from Him. God wants to remind us today that all direction and blessing will come from Him. He is just waiting for us to acknowledge our weaknesses and rest in His presence.
[ The LORD says, "I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you." -Psalm 32:8 ]
A great man of God once said, “Many people have failed to recognize the answer to their prayer because they were looking for a miracle when God answered with a plan.”
Our Father in heaven is a great planner, and as His children, He also wants us to be the same. He wants us to be good stewards of the time and resources He has given us. Now is the time to drop everything that is not essential in our lives so we can focus on doing the things that God has assigned us to do.
[ And the Lord answered me: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it."-Habakkuk 2:2 ]
As believers of the Lord Jesus Christ, we take great comfort in knowing that our God loves us deeply that He will talk, direct, guide and teach us each and every day if we allow Him to. Through constant communication, we can grow a close relationship with our God and experience the unspeakable peace that only His presence can give. The kind of rest our soul needs. The rest that we can never find in this world.
[ The LORD replied, "My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest." -Exodus 33:14 ]
