God: is a giving Father….
Psalm 23:1-5 (KJV) “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
It might appear that we fight an ceaseless battle at times with the things we have to undergo; our barrel of flour never seem to have enough to suffice or even carry us through the rough times much less the quiet seasons of our lives.
The need for more is consistently a cry to our Heavenly Father, but today in the time of not sufficient, He our Father, our Heavenly Father will pour out the oil of plenty, the capacity oil to fulfill the need we have and enough to carry us the distance which our eyes cannot see.
Jehovah God will cause our empty cup to overflow; it shall overflow; by God’s grace, Amen.
God:is all that and more…
Palm 62:6-8 (KJV) “He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved. In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God. Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.”
Do you ever get the sense when you are really under pressure and can’t even rationalize the purpose of figuring it out, then you reach out to that person who is most trustworthy in your life and at some deep level you realize that they don’t get it.
They might want to support you and help ease the pain, but they just don’t get it; in the alternate, try getting that type of problem, where the worms in your stomach really start to assault each other and the weigh on your shoulder literally bows you to the ground and you have been pressed to your knees in your weakness, your affliction: then you tried calling out to Jesus and it ALL goes in less than a minute.
Seems to me, He was there all along and just wanted you to reach out to Him and ask; this my friend is demonstration of someone being better than a BFF.
He is more than a rock in all situations and as we go through, and we experience different levels of pain, it really doesn’t matter, but our God is there with us..Call out to Him.
God: always has a plan….
Psalm 55:22 “Cast your burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain you: he shall never permit the righteous to be moved.”
It is literally impossible to navigate the terrains in this world without some type of supernatural insight or assistance. It is better when that aide comes from the Savior of the world, because you know that with His help, it is truly altruistic.
Stress, distress, tumults and every kind of sickness may pass you by, and you can allow yourself to dwell in the darkness of this affliction, or you can decide that a greater force has a plan for your life and will triumph over all the forces of evil.
My thing is to trust that God has got my back when my back is against the wall; He will come through for me; He has a plan of escape when the dices are stacked.
My God is greater than all the issues I have to deal with in this life.
God: is desirable
Psalm 42:1-2 (KJV) “As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?”
It’s amazing that even when we don’t know why we do it, we tend to worship God at some level. In our private moments, we spend time talking in our hearts and communing with Him, yet on the surface we don’t pay attention to what we are doing, yet after ceasing, we remember that we would have had that conversation at some point in time.
The Spirit of God quicken our spirits to be aware, awake and in tune with the divine connection with our Savior.
No wonder the Psalmist spoke on such a deep level about how this desire was deep within Him and the comparison even to the hart in need of water and thirsty.
I know many have felt this experience and yet have been unable to identify it, but now there is an understanding that God has approached your spirit and is in communication with you.
God: said it…
Isaiah 49:8-9 (KJV) “Thus saith the Lord, In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages; That thou mayest say to the prisoners, Go forth; to them that are in darkness, Shew yourselves. They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures shall be in all high places.”
Many times, there are some of us who are called with a purpose that is unfathomable; we just don’t understand the reason and the direction that comes with our calling. The best thing through it all is to trust God because He is the one doing the calling.
He would have empowered us to do the work He called us to accomplish and in all honesty, it is His work to be performed, so there is not reason why an individual “called” should be burdened down with conducting God’s work.
Trust God, He will empower you for the journey.
God:wants our attention….
Colossians 3:1-2 (KJV) “If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.”
I’m pretty sure I am not the only one who at times get to promising myself that I will be focused strictly in following and receiving the word of God into my spirit consistently without thinking on my things which can be distracting.
I actually can do it for a period, but it seems that I have to track back to figure out when I wigged out and stopped doing as I promised myself.
It is needful that we follow and keep our eyes on the Lord Jesus Christ and be as diligent in pursuing Him as possible.
This can only be done in the strength of the Spirit of Christ. Don’t beat yourself up when you falter, just get up and keep pressing. It’s a journey and not a race.
God: has sent you (walk)…
Romans 10:15 (KJV) “And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!”
Sometimes we are reluctant to go when we are given instructions by God and it’s easy to know when He is doing the sending, there is an increasingly heavy burden you just can’t shake; it just won’t go away.
But one thing that can encourage you is that the person you just might not know about is waiting for assistance, waiting for a word or just to be pulled out from hole that has entrapped them.
If you hear His voice today, don’t delay: start walking.
