Be Still

Usually we only quote and share Jeremiah 29:11 but I want to call your attention to Jeremiah 29:1~10 God is encouraging his people to settle down let your sons and daughters get married build your homes plant your gardens work for the peace and prosperity of the city,  In other words get comfortable for  you will be here for awhile! In the midst of our hard places we want out as soon as possible but God’s timing is so different from ours. God also told them to pray and so should we  while waiting on God’s time to be fulfilled, it’s so hard to be still while waiting on God we feel we must be doing something but most of the time what we do is make a mess!

We also feel like God has forgotten us but that is never going to happen He loves us to much! For then comes the reassuring promise of Jeremiah 29:11

 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Yes His plans for us are greater than what we’re going through right now so be still and let God do what He has planned the end results will be wonderful.

Before

When I think about how Awesome my Father is It blows my mind!

Before He created anything He knew me-He knew me! I was with Him and in Him Before

Hallelujah

Before I was on His mind in His heart spirit and soul

Before I was with my great and awesome Creator He knew  me and He chose me

He called me Before

I can imagine Him kicking the ground and using the dust to create the first man

I was there with Him in Him Hallelujah

How awesome my  God is even now He knows me

Among the billions upon the earth He knows my voice from all of the others

He knows me and loves me greatly He knows my every thought

Even Before I had a thought He knew me while the earth was dark and void and empty He knew me

It’s such a wonderful thing to be known by God and to know  His great love!wp-1457879516127.jpeg

God Is Able

“But David persisted. “I have been taking care of my father’s sheep and goats,” he said. “When a lion or a bear comes to steal a lamb from the flock,”‭‭‬‬“I go after it with a club and rescue the lamb from its mouth. If the animal turns on me, I catch it by the jaw and club it to death.”

‭‭1 Samuel‬ ‭17:34,35 NLT‬‬

Preparation; David had learned that God is able and faithful to keep him and give him the strength for battle! We should also learn from our battles that God will never leave us He’s always with us.

“Don’t be ridiculous!” Saul replied. “There’s no way you can fight this Philistine and possibly win! You’re only a boy, and he’s been a man of war since his youth.””‭‭1 Samuel‬ ‭17:33‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Regardless To what anyone says about the call God has on your life don’t take it to heart. God repairs us for every battle He’s the one who knows every situation and He’s more than able to carry us through any battle. It does not matter the size of the giants we have the victory because God is able and He’s faithful! So don’t give up in the battle .

Excepted

img_0476Give that phrase some thought-really with so much going on in our world so many changes it’s so great to know that Jesus cannot ever be changed! He will love us as we are forever I keep thinking of myself with all of my flaws and hang ups it’s so amazing to be loved and excepted just as I am I don’t need anyone’s approval. God has excepted me in Christ Jesus my mind is being renewed through God’s word and we are being changed daily Praise God. God has made us Holy and excepted by the blood of His dear Son! Can you imagine the chaos if Jesus could be changed by man we would not stand a chance in this world But God! Because God loves us and chose us and called us He said

 

That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are  being renewed every day. 17 For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!

2 Corinthians 4:18

 

Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you.
    I have called you by name; you are mine.

Isaiah 43:1

Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes

Ephesians 1:4

Though there are many changes going on rest in Jesus knowing that He is for you and not against you Hallelujah!

So What

19 He was then almost one hundred years old; but his faith did not weaken when he thought of his body, which was already practically dead, or of the fact that Sarah could not have children.

God is so amazing! He can truly do anything without regard God is not limited at all even though our faith sometimes weakens. Wow it seems as though Abraham had fantastic and strong faith but we must look at what God brought him through before he got to this place of faith so that he was not moved looking back is good especially doing times of trials because it gives us insight we can also see what God has brought us through. Our faith does grow stronger as we move through the different trials God has prepared for us He knows how much we can bear! I get so excited thinking about the power and authority of God he has taken everything into consideration concerning us so be encouraged today wherever you are in your walk with the Lord knowing that he will never leave or forget you no matter what age you are nor does it matter what condition your body is in God can do great things for you and through you so stand strong and see the amazing things God has planned for you.

Wait On Him

Jesus loved Lazarus just as He loves us! Can you imagine the restraint Jesus had to use when He got that message from Martha and Mary remember Jesus was flesh and blood like us.When He hears our prayers I believe He has to restrain Himself, because He’s all about doing His Father’s will.
For I have come down from heaven to do the will of God who sent me, not to do my own will.

John 6:38 NLT
But if we wait on Him we’ll get the answer that’s best for our situation, His timing is so different from ours and we do have problems waiting.
“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord . “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.

Isaiah 55:8 NLT
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

LAM 3:22‭-‬23 ESV
God is great and nothing is to hard for Him! So hold on God will show up on time!
