Never throw in the towel before you see the blessing, promises and abundance of God. Keep going and keep moving forward. You have to walk through the fire. You will not be burned. You will be strengthened through every trial and tribulation and you will have fire shut up in your bones. God gets all the glory in the end. Shake off the dust and walk with your head held high. You will pass the test.
Don’t get caught up in your emotions just because you can’t feel or see God moving in your life. Regardless of how you feel, God is working behind the scenes. Just keep walking by faith and expect His abundance, promises, favor, and blessings.
Have a blessed week!
“Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.” Heb 11:1
Don’t wait for the blessing. Don’t wait until the morning. Don’t wait until Friday. Don’t Wait Until Sunday. Praise Him Right Now!
Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. Gal 5:1
It was never God’s intention for His people to live in bondage. However, we live in a fallen and sinful world. Without the cross through the sacrifice of Jesus, we would not have the opportunity to receive eternal life through salvation.
Through that one selfless act that Jesus did, we are set free.
Whatever has you wrapped up in bondage, there is a way out through deliverance.
The Lord wants you free from addiction, free from poverty, healed from sickness, released from your mental, emotional or psychological prisons and released from guilt, shame, and condemnation.
You don’t live there anymore. There is a place called grace and mercy. It’s full of compassion and love. You can’t get lost on the way there because Jesus will meet you exactly where you are.
You may have traveled a long, hard road with many detours along the way but God is faithful and just. He waits patiently at the door waiting to embrace you, teach you and bless you with His abundant promises for your life.
The Lord’s ways are sure. His path is straight. Nothing is too hard for Him to handle.
There will be tests of your faith, lessons to be learned and transitions in life that are unexpected. The ultimate plan is in God’s hands. Are you willing to surrender? Are you ready to pick up your cross and follow him?
Just take one step of faith. He is waiting at the door for your arrival.
Kathie Lee Gifford & Nicole C. Mullen’s modern oratorio telling the stories of Hagar, Ruth, David, and Mary and the promises God made to them.
36 “And you, son of man, prophesy to the mountains of Israel, and say, ‘O mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord! 2 Thus says the Lord God: “Because the enemy has said of you, ‘Aha! The [a]ancient heights have become our possession,’ ” ’ 3 therefore prophesy, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Because they made you desolate and swallowed you up on every side, so that you became the possession of the rest of the nations, and you are taken up by the lips of talkers and slandered by the people”— 4 therefore, O mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord God! Thus says the Lord God to the mountains, the hills, the [b]rivers, the valleys, the desolate wastes, and the cities that have been forsaken, which became plunder and mockery to the rest of the nations all around— 5 therefore thus says the Lord God: “Surely I have spoken in My burning jealousy against the rest of the nations and against all Edom, who gave My land to themselves as a possession, with wholehearted joy and [c]spiteful minds, in order to plunder its open country.” Ezkeiel 36:1-36
6 “Therefore prophesy concerning the land of Israel, and say to the mountains, the hills, the rivers, and the valleys, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I have spoken in My jealousy and My fury, because you have borne the shame of the nations. Ezkeiel 36:6
9 For indeed I am for you, and I will turn to you, and you shall be tilled and sown. 10 I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, all of it; and the cities shall be inhabited and the ruins rebuilt. Ezkeiel 36:9-10
Don’t underestimate the power of words. Words can change the heart, elevate the mind and transform lives. The Lord spoke the world into existence. You have the same power as the Holy Spirit that lives inside of you. Let your words be light, hope and encouragement that strengthens the soul.
