Rest

The night before Herod was to bring him to trial, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains, and sentries stood guard at the entrance.

Acts 12:6

In this difficult situation Peter was sleeping 😴! How can we rest in difficult situations? We can rest that same way all we have to do is Hold On to the promises of God. This was not the first time Peter was in a difficult situation,and we to have been in many difficulties but God

The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all;

Psalm 34:19

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

Matthew 19:26

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.

1 John 5:14

And since we know that He hears us we should trust Him and rest God is faithful and He always makes a way out for us

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9

God’s word is our sure foundation

Pray

Even if you think you don’t know how to pray you can and God will hear you. Just pray Lord have mercy please He already knows your needs just pray Lord have mercy please Jesus Christ came and died and rose again to help us and to set us free! It’s horrible being caught up in addiction of any kind so please pray with me for God to help his people get free my heart is so heavy thinking about them they did not wake up one day and say I want to be addicted to heroin crack or meth. Then I’m praying for all of the Veterans they are caught up after all they’ve been through serving this country! Lord have mercy please it’s time for us to pray God is able and willing to help us all He loves us so

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.

God Is Able

Sometimes- most times as we read the word of God we see our brothers as giants of faith who stand tall and always walk the straight and narrow. But we need to take a closer look and we can see ourselves weak,frail and trembling at times in their walk with the Lord. Our brothers of old did also have periods of fear and doubt the same as we do but we must also see that the same Great God that kept them keeps us! And the same Great God that worked through them is working through us and the same Great God that brought them through time and time again will always bring us through every difficult test and trial. God is able at all times to care for us in the midst of our fears and doubts He always has a way out.

Scripture 1 Corinthians 2:3

But with the demonstration of the Spirits power

1 Samuel 16:2 Afraid to go to Jesse’s house really after all God has brought you through,but we find ourselves there at times

2 Chronicles 20:3 ,15 Jehoshaphat was terrified! But God came through

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 .
