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 ]
Hard times change us. What God will reward us later on in life depends on how we pass the test we are given right now. The Bible says, the eyes of God roam the earth, looking for someone whose heart is perfect toward Him. May we be the kind of person whose heart trusts in Him even if we go through things we don’t completely understand.
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.”-Proverbs 3:5-6
One thing we should always remember is that, Jesus gave His life not just for the assurance of Heaven after we die, but also for the assurance of a full and blessed life here on earth. As followers of Christ, know that our hands were already destined to do good things for others & great things for God. As we make ourselves available to God’s leading, our hands will become a channel of blessing not only to our loved ones but to countless people all around the world.
[ “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in Me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father.” – John 14:12 ]
Sometimes, God uses separation to let His children discover true change in their lives. It may hurt at first, but we must believe that God will establish a better replacement for what we have lost. God is reminding us today to stop feeling sorry for ourselves because we can trust in Him. All He wants right now is for us to have faith that He will take care of everything and that He will give us the courage to completely let go.
[ “But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead.” -Philippians 3:13-14 ]
[ “Forget the former things, do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up;do you not perceive it?” -Isaiah 43:18-19 ]
This is something we should always remember: God allows trials in our lives to, first – test our faith, second-to show His faithfulness, and third-to increase our fruitfulness. In everything, God has a special purpose, and learning the lesson from painful experiences is the best way to move forward. Embrace the lessons because in the end, you will be surprised how it will make you a stronger & better person.
“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” -Romans 8:28
The Lord said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” God longs to have an intimate fellowship with His children. He is just waiting for us to move and make an effort to be closer to Him. If we seek God’s face, not only will we experience His presence but we will also feel at peace and complete.
[ “You make known to me the path of life. In your presence there is fullness of joy at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”-Psalm 16:11 ]
[ “You will seek Me and find Me, when you seek Me with all your heart.”- Jeremiah 29:13 ]
Do you sometimes feel like you are never good enough and you keep on failing God? Today, God wants you to accept His abundant love and grace for you. He wants to remind you that His love never fails. Don’t listen to the enemy’s accusation that you will never be good enough. God is waiting patiently for you to start again and make things right in your life.
“Let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.” -Hebrews 4:16
