I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me. I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, ‘My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.’ (Isaiah 46:10)
The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps. – Proverbs 16:9
Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand. -Proverbs 19:21
Who has spoken and it came to pass, unless the Lord has commanded it? —Lamentations 3:37
Whatever the LORD pleases, He does, in heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps. —Psalms 135:6
There are no coincidences for a Christian!
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.
The Bible says, “We are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago” (Ephesians 2:10).
In other words “we are His work of art.” The psalmist wrote, “You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous — how well I know it” (Psalm 139:13–14).
So why are we here on earth? To fulfill a master plan-A plan unique for each one of us. Even before we were conceived in our mother’s womb we were conceived in the heart of God for this very purpose. It’s incredible, but true.
Our Heavenly Father is zealous for the protection of His children. Anyone who harms His people touches the Lord. How you treat the Lord’s children could determine whether you are blessed or cursed. The Lord promises to protect His children against every attack of their enemies.
The Bible says that anyone who touches and harms the people of God touches the “apple of the Lord’s eye.” (Zechariah 2:8) God warns us, “If you touch My people you are poking your finger into My eye. Imagine the consequence of doing that. Let these words serve as a warning; at the same time, may all who are suffering harm be comforted.
What’s concerning you today? Is there a situation that you’re apprehensive about? If so, you can place your worries in God’s great hands.
The Lord gently holds us. We have to worry, wonder, or fear the future. He hears our prayers and knows the concerns of our hearts.
Beloved, if your heavenly Father cares for the birds, and feeds them every day, how much more will He care for you, His dear, precious child! Let your heart be at rest as you hear Him say to you, “Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” Matthew 6:26
God spoke to Moses and said, “So now go. I am sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people out of Egypt.” Exodus. 3:10 to which he replied, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh?” This was at the point when Moses’ self-esteem was at its lowest.
Did you notice that before God told Moses what He was going to do, He reminded Moses who He was? “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.”
God knew everything he had done, his weaknesses, but He wanted Moses to know it was through His mighty power that Moses was going to deliver His people.
Is God asking to do something that is too vast for you? It is not you but God who is going to accomplish it through you. Will you trust Him today?
He has risen! Luke 24:6
Jesus is alive!
O, child of God, the designer of the universe, the Son of God, the King of kings is alive. He’s in you, with you and for you. No one can stand against you all the days of your life.
Because Jesus lives I know dark days will not last. Because Jesus lives I know nothing is beyond God’s power. Because He’s alive He can bring life into your dead situation. His life will enter every dry-bone situation and bring it to life. Even if everyone says, “it’s impossible” Jesus says, “it’s possible.” He is the God of the impossibilities.
And because He lives, I can face tomorrow.
If only our spiritual eyes could be open to see the One who is with us always! We would never worry even for a moment. It’s only because we lose sight of His promise that we start focusing on the pressing issues around us. He promised us that He would be with us even to the end of age (Matthew 28:20). Therefore, we don’t have to face a single situation by ourselves. He is better that ten Presidents. His influence is greater than any king. He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords. He can do for you what no one in the world can do- more than you ask or think. Rest child of God, Jesus has got this.
I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go into the house of the Lord."—Psalm 122:1
It is a place of worship, it is the house of God, the house of prayer and believers are the family of God. Where broken hearts are mended, the unloved are loved, the lost find a place of refuge. The bible says, ‘You are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.” Let us truly be the hands and feet of Jesus and reach out to the needy, the sick and the hurting. Let us direct people to Jesus and show them the way to heaven. Let us be an oasis of hope in a desert of hopelessness.
