Reminders

Even now in your fear,doubt and confusion anger being miserable and misunderstood feeling alone and being alone being sick even being sick for a long time being disappointed and depressed feeling unloved even hated upset even highly upset! We will go through some things and situations in this world we never even thought of I may have missed mentioning where you are right now,but just remember Jesus Christ knew our journey and He is aware of where you are right now . At times life gets really hard and our minds start to act in ways we are ashamed of because no matter how hard we try we can’t control them,have you ever been there? I just sit and think sometimes what’s really going on I’m sure you do too! But I’m also aware that Jesus is for us and He will never leave us I’m also sure about His love mercy and grace and without Him we could not possibly make it through these trying times and keep our sanity. I’m learning that no matter where we are we still have reasons to give God praise it may take awhile but it will come, because the Holy Spirit will bring it He also gives us great encouragement and comfort. We have to remind ourselves we are only human and we will never understand things that happen to us family or friends the best we can do is keep trying to pray {that gets hard too} and trying to stay in the word whew some days we don’t feel like doing either but we are still Loved and Adored by our Heavenly Father. A few scripture I find helpful if you’d like leave me a few you use

Isaiah 43

“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
    I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
When you pass through the waters,
    I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
    they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
    you will not be burned;
    the flames will not set you ablaze.
For I am the Lord your God

John 11

So when he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days

21 “Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died.

Oh how often we feel this way Lord if?

2 Corinthians 4

We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.

Romans 8

31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

We absolutely need Reminders

Listening

Listening to Líes let’s Stop It! It does not matter who’s preaching or teaching everything they say is not for us we must use Discernment so that when we face difficult trials we can stand and keep trusting God.Sometimes the words we hear sound good and right but if it’s not the truth then it’s not for us ,getting into God’s word and memorizing scripture is so very important His word is what we must listen to at all times

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

Romans 12:2 – And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

NKJV

Proverbs 18:15

The heart of the prudent acquires knowledge, And the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.

NKJV

Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.

Colossians 2:8-10 – NKJV

1 Timothy 4:1

Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron,

For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.

1 Corinthians 14:33 – NKJV

Blessing

But God

“We think you ought to know, dear brothers and sisters, about the trouble we went through in the province of Asia. We were crushed and overwhelmed beyond our ability to endure, and we thought we would never live through it.”

‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭1:8‬ ‭NLT‬‬

As we go about our day different storms will arise some small and some seem overwhelming. But as we continue our walk with the Lord and continue in His word we will learn that God has but’s

“In fact, we expected to die. But as a result, we stopped relying on ourselves and learned to rely only on God, who raises the dead.”“And he did rescue us from mortal danger, and he will rescue us again. We have placed our confidence in him, and he will continue to rescue us.”

‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭1:9,10 NLT‬‬

‭‭

The but here let’s us know we can always depend on Our Father to step in! God is with us and learning to lean and trust Him in all situations is exactly what He wants us to do Hallelujah I thank and praise God for giving us His great comfort and peace and for His great faithfulness. So if you’re going through today remember But God He sees and He cares and He will bring you out

Dashed Hopes

But we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem Israel.

Luke 24:21 – NIV

Have you ever had your hopes dashed I believe we all have, it’s mainly because I believe we’re expecting something Jesus has not promised. The disciples were much like us looking at Jesus for one thing while not fully understanding the whole purpose. Jesus did come to rescue them but not through physical means but through spiritual means. When we get our minds set on how this or that should work it’s hard to see our true purpose that’s why it’s so important to pray and stay in the Word of God because He will also take us through the scriptures and show us it’s true meaning.

He said to them, “How foolish you are, and how slow to believe all that the prophets have spoken! 26 Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?”

Luke 24:25-26 – NIV

Dashed hopes can be cured through His word every time so that we’ll have the strength to keep following Jesus Hallelujah

I truly Thank Him for His patience and long suffering with us!
