Be Rest Assured! He Is Able!

The Lord that saved you and I is the same God that has been watching over Us. It is the same God that has been shielding us from the fiery darts of the wicked. He has not allowed it to be unto us according to the plan of our enemies. The Lord has defended us in ways we have no idea of.  The Lord has provided for us according to His great mercy – protection, provision, deliverance, sustenance, healing, a way of escape also from the wrath to come in the blood of the Lamb – Jesus Christ. He withheld the hands of the wicked from harming us and built a hedge of fire round about us.

gods-abilityWill He not keep you and I from falling away? He has done so much more friends!! Trust Christ Jesus and stay focused on the throne of grace to see you to an expected end of victory in all ramification. Hold unto the Word, meditate upon it and it will work wonders in your life by the power of the Holy Spirit! Trust in the Lord!

Psalms 119:33 Teach me, Lord, the way of your decrees,
    that I may follow it to the end.
34 Give me understanding, so that I may keep your law
    and obey it with all my heart.
35 Direct me in the path of your commands,
    for there I find delight.
36 Turn my heart toward your statutes
    and not toward selfish gain.
37 Turn my eyes away from worthless things;
    preserve my life according to your word.
38 Fulfill your promise to your servant,
    so that you may be feared.

Resolute Faith!

 

Faith in God! Faith in The Word! Had it not been this tiny weeny faith that I have, that you have by His grace. I, we most likely would have forgotten who I/we was/were, who I am/you are, and who His love is making me and you to become from glory to glory. Matthew 17:20 So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.

Hebrew 11 Faith: By Faith We Understand! Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts; and through it he being dead still speaks. By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, “and was not found, because God had taken him”;  for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he dwelt in the land of promise as in a foreign country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise; 10 for he waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

Like Joseph, who shared his dream with his brothers and was hated. His Father, with all the love and lofty plans He had for all his children could not imagine that this little child will one day be mightier than Him he must have thought. Bow before Joseph? That can’t be, it is unheard off. Genesis 37:1 to end. Then he dreamed still another dream and told it to his brothers, and said, “Look, I have dreamed another dream. And this time, the sun, the moon, and the eleven stars bowed down to me.”10 So he told it to his father and his brothers; and his father rebuked him and said to him, “What is this dream that you have dreamed? Shall your mother and I and your brothers indeed come to bow down to the earth before you?” 11 And his brothers envied him, but his father kept the matter in mind.

You my friends might have shared your dreams with family and friends. No one would dare to share their dreams with known foes! None would dare to do that. We most often share our lives with people of like minds, family, friends, and those of the household of faith. Please note that dream killers abide everywhere and will not hesitate to call day night and night day. The wicked one will use every available vessel vacant and willing to discourage, distract and convince you to discard your dreams and from being your transformed self. You will be stripped, sold out by “trusted” allies, blackmailed and wrongfully convicted and sentenced in order to kill that dream, your great destiny, planted by heaven in your heart.

Folks remember how things played out? It always plays out that way when it is backed by heaven. Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

Life matters will work hand in hand with your ordained destiny only by total faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. It does not matter how long it takes or seems to be taking, trust the process and the path like Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, Job, Peter and many more! Lean not on the arm of flesh for it always fails. Let your faith be aligned with Christ Jesus alone!  Many have leaned on “Pillars”, looked up to like minded people of faith and have been shipwrecked. Look up to Jesus Christ the author and finisher of your faith. Be encouraged friends, the Lord is on your case! Relax!!!!!!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

God’s Favor Renewed!!!

Psalm 85

Image result for images of God's renewed favorLord, you poured out blessings on your land!
    You restored the fortunes of Israel.
You forgave the guilt of your people—
    yes, you covered all their sins. Interlude
You held back your fury.
    You kept back your blazing anger.

Now restore us again, O God of our salvation.
    Put aside your anger against us once more.
Will you be angry with us always?
    Will you prolong your wrath to all generations?
Won’t you revive us again,
    so your people can rejoice in you?
Show us your unfailing love, O Lord,
    and grant us your salvation.

8 I listen carefully to what God the Lord is saying,
    for he speaks peace to his faithful people.
    But let them not return to their foolish ways.
Surely his salvation is near to those who fear him,
    so our land will be filled with his glory.

10 Unfailing love and truth have met together.
    Righteousness and peace have kissed!
11 Truth springs up from the earth,
    and righteousness smiles down from heaven.
12 Yes, the Lord pours down his blessings.
    Our land will yield its bountiful harvest.
13 Righteousness goes as a herald before him,
    preparing the way for his steps.
