Struggles!

Charmaine, a vibrant young woman who lost her father at a very young age, lost her brother and two other close people in her life, yet the most positive and inspiring person I have ever met.

It was an honor meeting you Charmaine.

In the presence of God, there is fullness of joy, and at his right hand is pleasure forever more.

The presence of God within us as believers should inherently give us joy.

I admonished you therefore in the name of Jesus, let Christ dwell richly within you.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Futile Confidence In Egypt

“What sorrow awaits my rebellious children,” says the Lord .

“You make plans that are contrary to mine.

You make alliances not directed by my Spirit, thus piling up your sins.

For without consulting me, you have gone down to Egypt for help.

You have put your trust in Pharaoh’s protection. You have tried to hide in his shade. But by trusting Pharaoh, you will be humiliated, and by depending on him, you will be disgraced.

For though his power extends to Zoan and his officials have arrived in Hanes, all who trust in him will be ashamed. He will not help you. Instead, he will disgrace you.”
Isaiah 30:1‭-‬5

This is what the Sovereign Lord , the Holy One of Israel, says: “Only in returning to me and resting in me will you be saved. In quietness and confidence is your strength. But you would have none of it.
Isaiah 30:15 NLT

A Light! You Are!

You may never know how bright you shine. I mean how bright the light of God’s countenance shine through you.

You may be in a wilderness, or just coming out like the Lord Jesus. You may well be the light that shines in darkness and darkness cannot comprehend it.

Can you see now that you carry God’s very presence. Darkness cannot comprehend it, overshadow it, or extinguish it.

Your light shines in that very place, Yea that very place revealing entrenched darkness.

You my friend are meant to reveal the heart of the Father in that very place.

For it is written of you!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
