God: makes a good plan…
Matthew 6:34 (KJV) “Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”
Thank you Lord for this minute, this second, this day.
I just had to whisper that as I started writing; we make so many plans that is futuristic and for some of us, they die and we pass on before they could come to fruition. Not that there is anything wrong with dreaming and planning a future and where you want to be at with your goals.
But in our planning it is good to take into consideration that if we are bought of Christ, He is the best decision maker we can consult with in our future goals and aspiration.
As much as you can, live good, live today, live in the moment and be grateful for your life now.
God: gives us chances to prepare ourselves…
Amos 4:12-13 (KJV) “Therefore thus will I do unto thee, O Israel: and because I will do this unto thee, prepare to meet thy God, O Israel. For, lo, he that formeth the mountains, and createth the wind, and declareth unto man what is his thought, that maketh the morning darkness, and treadeth upon the high places of the earth, The Lord, The God of hosts, is his name.”
Many times we have to review our lives and search for the things that just isn’t right within us; the many wrong behaviors and attitudes which are hindrances to getting the best from our Heavenly Father.
God is so faithful to us, that when we could die and without remedy, He gives us opportunities to “fix it”. Get it right; allow ourselves to be reconciled to His holiness.
Time upon time we might have come to the point of almost dying, yet He released angelic reinforcement to circumvent the plans of the enemies who came to destroy us.
But in this life we need not be getting ready, but we have to be ready for that moment when He and He alone decides that it is time for us to go to our final rest.
May Yeshua allow us that grace to be at peace with Him when it is time.
God:will be obeyed…
Mark 4:38-40 (KJV) “And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?”
It might seem that no one is paying attention to the trauma and affliction that is pervasive in our lives, too much is happening in our situation, the pain is just too much for one person to undertake and no one appears to be paying attention.
We might be crying out for help, soaking our pillows with tears that we can’t share with anyone else and believe that no one cares and understands. Beloved understand that Jesus sees and will act.
Jesus cares. He will act on our behalf. He will speak to the situation and that situation will obey Him.
God:is Father also…
Matthew 6:9-13 (KJV) “After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.”
Our continued existence and sustenance on earth was so important that Jesus when on earth made it a point in teaching His disciples and henceforth we believers who come after, how to appeal and talk to our heavenly Father.
It is a prayer which has stood the test of time and still relevant to our time and living.
May our heavenly Father continue to usher us into His presence for dialogue and interaction that will benefit us and the kingdom of heaven.
God: pray in accordance to His words…
Revelations 22:20 (KJV) “He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.”
In this world, a lot is happening and many folks still live their lives without the understanding of who Jesus is and what He came to accomplish in our lives; to be truthful, many have not accepted Jesus as their personal Savior.
This truth is sad, for although there is knowledge that He is God, a choice is made and for some, it’s a decision which will be a fixture in their lives even as death takes over.
No one can predict the exact time of leaving this world, but it a guaranteed event.
Knowing that Jesus will come back for this world, for me it is not a regret to ask when praying, Lord Jesus, come quickly.
God: ministers to us at all level…
Philippians 3:8-11 (KJV) “Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.”
At times in our lives we can tend to beat ourselves us and think we aren’t worth the effort to be saved, we aren’t worthy of the love of Jesus, we are less than nothing; those are the thoughts that the adversary will feed into your mind.
And we can buy into the projection; it’s just arrows shot into our minds to derail us, but we have to be consistent in rejecting the arrows.
Definitively pull them out and reject them; take the time to cry out the reason for the sorrow or low feeling, but make up in your mind that it will be evicted out of your system by the help of the Spirit of God.
Whatever state you are in, God has promised never to leave or forsake you; my friend believe that as you go through.
God:is the one…
Romans 13:1-3 (KJV) “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.”
I believe at some level all humans, no matter the walk of life they come from, understand that there is a power higher our own limited existence. The entities surrounding us, the trees, mountains, rivers, oceans, the wind, storms, even the sunlight kissing our faces on a calm sunny day.
These are sustained and directed by a source which is not of man: there has to be a higher power.
God did a perfect job when He created the world and even now, He can order a mountain to fall and it will disintegrate at His word; the river can dry up at His dictate or can overflow it’s banks if He chooses it to.
Our lives is in His hand; what a wonderful God in that He gives us life and that more abundantly. His word is the higher power.
