We so often look for an instant miracle, when sometimes the miracle happens in the learning, the climbing… in discovering that with God, we can ‘overcome’ all things. He rarely takes away our pain and heartaches instantly. When we are frail and unable to put one foot in front of another, He helps us understand His grace and His strength is all we need to walk this walk of faith. And at the end of it all we can stand on the peak and realise what it is to be an ‘overcomer’ and take in the grand and gracious view of God’s promises fulfilled.
He makes me as surefooted as a deer, enabling me to stand on mountain heights. Ps 18:33
The LORD will guide you always; He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.
Isaiah 58: 11
God now has a perfect divine plan and destiny set up for your life – and He will now be the One to guide you every step of the way into the fulfillment of that divine plan!
There is not an area or detail in your life that God will not be willing to help you out with – no matter how small or trivial you think it may be. The Holy Spirit is called “the Helper” in the Bible. It is now His job to help you in every single area of your life where you will need His help.
Genesis 16:13 ‘You are the God who sees me,’ for she said, ‘I have now seen the One who sees me.’
– The Lord is the great and wonderful God who sees each one of us.
– You may feel insignificant or even overlooked.
– This is never true when it comes to the Lord who loves and cares for you.
– Know this for sure today, the Lord sees you and He knows the desires of your heart.
PRAYER: Lord, how wonderful it is to know that You see me. Even when I feel that no one sees or knows my battles, You see and You know. May I never forget that Your eyes are ever upon me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Psalm 113:3 From the rising of the sun to its going down The Lord’s name is to be praised.
“From the rising of the sun to its setting” means that God should be praised all over the earth.. Secondly since the sun rises in the morning and sets in the evening it means that God is to be praised all day long, at all times. Each new day is a gift from God. Each and every new morning sunrise has within it a promise of fresh new blessings from the same hand that created the sun.
LORD it is true that You really do deserve our praise from the early morning to the setting sun. Forgive us for not always remembering to do so. We praise You now in Jesus’ name. Amen
What does God expect of you?
Few of us have thought long or hard about this question. The answer is:
He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)
• Do what is right.
• Love what is kind. The world is rarely kind, but we must cultivate kindness .
• Be humble.
When we live such a life God is truly honored.
Genesis 22:14 ‘Abraham named that place ‘The LORD Provides.’ And even today people say, ‘On the LORD’s mountain He provides.’
– The name of the Lord is ‘Jehovah-Jireh’, which means He is your provider!
– Abraham had to face the greatest test, but in the final moment God provided a way.
– Even if you have to wait for the last moment, He will provide for you as well.
– He will not abandon you, but He will come to you and make a way!
PRAYER: Lord, I declare that You are my provider. No matter what the test or the trial that I face, I know that You will come to my rescue and You will come to my aid. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
If God’s Word is true and I believe it is, then He will give me what I need when the time arises. I don’t have to live in fear or worry of what tomorrow will bring because He promises to be with me, to give me His Strength and His Power to meet whatever will come my way. Fear arises when we imagine that everything depends on us.
We have nothing to fear … if God is for us, who can ever be against us? (Romans 8:31) Be at peace, child of God, God knows how to meet your needs. You may not see a way, but He will make a way.
Blessed be … the Father of mercies and God of all comfort,who comforts us in all our troubles… —2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Thomas Moore was an Irish songwriter and poet who brought joy to many who saw him perform. Yet, his personal life was troubled by repeated heartaches, including the death of all five of his children. Moore’s personal wounds make these words of his all the more meaningful:
“Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish; earth hath no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.” This moving statement reminds us that meeting with God in prayer can bring healing to the troubled soul.
If you are broken and sorrowful, take refuge in God and you will feel and know His comfort.
Judge not, that you will not be judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye—Matthew 7:1-4
Every wrong thing that I see in other people, God finds in me. Every time I judge, I condemn myself. Why do I use a different yardstick when it comes to others?
Lord, help me not to be critical and judgemental but gracious and kind. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
Ephesians 3:17’Christ will make His home in your hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.’
– As we trust and have faith in the Lord, our relationship with Him is strengthened.
– In the process our roots can grow down deep into His love.
– This will anchor our lives and keep us secure and strong.
– May you know His love and His strength, today and always!
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, I declare that my trust and my hope is in You. I ask that You would come and cause my roots to grow down deep into Your love and that I will stand strong because You are my foundation. Amen.
