Praise On

Hab.3:17-18 (CEV) “Fig trees may no longer bloom, or vineyards produce grapes; olive trees may be fruitless, and harvest time a failure; sheep pens may be empty, and cattle stalls vacant—but I will still celebrate because the Lord God saves me.”

 

Have you experienced defeat, little or big, and how have you dealt with it? The third ‘D’ that attempts to stop our cheer and keeps us from rejoicing is defeat. God has helped us dismantle depression and demolish doubt. Over the next few days, Read the rest of this entry

Celebrate!

Ps.27:13-14  (NKJV) I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!

 

To cheer up is a choice. You have to choose to admit how you feel. You have to choose to be in the safe place God where has put you. You have to choose to let someone know when you are hurting. Read the rest of this entry

Face Lift

Heb.11:1-2 (ERV) “Faith is what makes real the things we hope for. It is proof of what we cannot see. God was pleased with the people who lived a long time ago because they had faith like this.”

 

Ps.34:5Those who look to Him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces.” (emphasis added). What it means is that what I believe affects how I act, Read the rest of this entry

Tucked In

Ps.27:5-6 For he will conceal me there when troubles come; he will hide me in his sanctuary. He will place me out of reach on a high rock. 6 Then I will hold my head high above my enemies… At his sanctuary I will offer sacrifices with shouts of joy, singing and praising the Lord with music.

Prov.15:13 (GW) “… with a heartache comes depression.” (emphasis added). Sometimes, things happen that attempt to keep us down, to make us depressed. The first thing is, do not deny it. Do not push it away, Read the rest of this entry

Reconciled

Col.1:22 “Yet now he has reconciled you to himself through the death of Christ in his physical body. As a result, he has brought you into his own presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before him without a single fault.”

 

Before the throne of God above, I have a strong and perfect plea

A great High Priest whose name is love, who ever lives and pleads for me

My name is graven on His hands, my name is written on His heart

I know that while in heav’n He stands, no tongue can bid me thence depart… Read the rest of this entry

Purpose & Produce

2 Cor.4:17 “For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!”

 

The next fact you need to know about suffering is, In The End, We Win. No matter how tough the battle is, in the end, we win. Check the scriptures; that is what the Bible tells us from Genesis to Revelations. Read the rest of this entry

Full Armor

Eph.6:13 “Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm” (emphasis added).

What keeps you standing and standing firm after the battle is not will power. What makes you and I remain on our feet after each battle is not our strength or our abilities. Read the rest of this entry

Firm Stand

Eph.6:10 “A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.” (emphasis added).

“All merit is with the Son, all power is with the Spirit”. I came across a saying a long time ago and I believe it wraps up what Paul is saying to us really well. Read the rest of this entry

Seed & Harvet

Ps.39:4-5 (Voice) “Eternal One, let me understand my end and how brief my earthly existence is; help me realize my life is fleeting. You have determined the length of my days, and my life is nothing compared to You. Even the longest life is only a breath.”

Eph.6:5-9 (NRSV) “Slaves, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, in singleness of heart, as you obey Christ; not only while being watched, and in order to please them, Read the rest of this entry

GOD’s Intent

Eph.3:9 “I was chosen to explain to everyone this mysterious plan that God, the Creator of all things, had kept secret from the beginning.”

What is this mysterious plan Paul is speaking about? Paul explained the first part when he said God’s plan was for the Jews and Gentiles to be together in the body. Read the rest of this entry
