God: eyes are everywhere…
Habakkuk 2:1-4 (KJV) “I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved. And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.”
In our lives we look upon situations which occur and many times it is as if we are unable to grasp or understand how certain things are happening and what the end result of these occurrences can be.
But the thing with a believer who is inhabited by the Spirit of the living God is that you are led and directed; He will show you what the Lord is speaking about your life and also show you the things which will come to pass in your life.
The thing is, if you aren’t receiving these instructions, there has to be a blockage and it is wise for you to seek God on finding out where and what could be the cause.
When the vision cometh, it’s only a matter of time, but it will surely come to fruition. Stand on that word which cometh from our Lord.
God: is truly powerful…
Psalm 24:1-4 (KJV) “The earth is the Lord‘s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.”
Today we know that everything that we have or think to have belongeth unto the Lord our God; He gives liberally to whomsoever He wishes.
God is good to us and wants to give us things as He sees it fit.
Let us seek the heart of God to know what He wants to bestow upon us.
God: cherishes the praises…
Psalm 29:1-2 (KJV) “Give unto the Lord, O ye mighty, give unto the Lord glory and strength. Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.”
When I think on the goodness of God and the holiness that is attributed to Him as Lord of lords, it fills my heart to acknowledge that He truly is a God that deserves glory and praises.
Even as I look into my life and see the things He has brought me through and the places He has taken me as one of His daughter it creates a fuller love for the name “Father”, which He is to me.
I prayerfully want that He accepts the praises that I would give to Him as a benevolent Lord over all.
To God be the glory.
God: eyes are everywhere…
2 Kings 6:17-18 (KJV) “And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha. And when they came down to him, Elisha prayed unto the Lord, and said, Smite this people, I pray thee, with blindness. And he smote them with blindness according to the word of Elisha.”
Many times we are in situations where we aren’t aware of our surroundings; things are happening at the sound of speed and we don’t get the sense of what it is that just occurred.
It’s isn’t a case where we blame ourselves or think that something is wrong with us because we could see or understand. It takes discernment or a deeper insight into the spiritual realm to understand what is happening.
If only our Lord in heaven smile upon us and grant us the grace to receive sight to see what is before us, then it would be worthwhile.
My prayer is that we are receptive to the gifts that God can bring to us and we can readily accept that there is more when it comes to serving Him.
GOD: gave us His Son…
Luke 1:32-33 (KJV) “He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.”
In the creation of the world, God did a great job in putting everything in place to secure our place with Him in His kingdom. The fact that He made the sacrifice of His Son to ensure that we are covered perpetually by grace only demonstrates His willingness to bless us with His love.
The gift of His Son is a tangible sign of the authentic love God has for His people. Jesus is our covering of love if we can only receive it from Him.
He is our gift. We can receive it.
God: there for us…
Psalm 62:1-2 (KJV) “Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.”
There are many sources of assistance as we go through this walk of life; some are for short periods and then again some come for longer periods, but ultimately they serve the purpose which they came.
However, as we seek support for the things which comes up in our lives there is a source of support which is steadfast and strong in it’s consistency: the help which cometh from our Father in heaven. Our heavenly Father have availed Himself to us as much as we need Him to be there for us and it is His arms which are perpetually opened to receive the things which bring about tumult in our lives.
It is His desire that we trust Him with all our hearts, soul and mind. Today, turn to Him in trust and simple faith.
God: gives more grace…
2 Corinthians 12:7-10 (KJV) “And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.”
In our lives we come across a lot of times when we get beyond ourselves and do things which is outside our normal realm of operation; this might not necessarily be a good thing.
But for the grace of God as we assess who and what we are in contrast to what we are doing, it does bring about a sense of humility which of course is the place where God can deal with us appropriately.
Being humble and contrite of our actions is necessary to effect forgiveness.
At the end of it all, God gives us the grace to kneel at the cross as we suffer our afflictions and the grace to overcome it all.
