I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you. For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. Genesis 28:15 Isaiah 41:13
Open your heart and your hands to receive this day gratefully. Look for signs of His abiding Presence for He is with you and watching over you CONTINUALLY. Thank Him for the joyful days but take His hand on the difficult days with trusting dependence knowing He will HELP you. SIMPLY GRATEFUL!
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5
Am I truly trusting & acknowledging Him with all my decisions or am I making decisions based on what I understand and then trusting Him to agree? Am I walking on the path He has me on trusting Him to lead and guide me, or am choosing my own path, going my own way and expecting Him to make it straight. These are the questions we must continually ask ourselves in our daily walk if we want to be sure not to be moved by our own understanding and trusting ourselves more than we do Him.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3: 5-6
When your faith falters, you choose a trail that meanders and takes you well out of your way.
The farther you roam along paths of unbelief, the harder it is to remember that I am with you. Anxious thoughts branch off in all directions, taking you farther and farther from awareness of My Presence. You need to voice your trust with Me frequently. This simple act of faith will keep you walking along straight paths with Me. Trust Me with all your heart, and a I will make your paths straight. JESUS CALLING
Because I know the plans I have for you says the Lord, plans of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will CALL upon Me and go and PRAY to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will SEEK Me and find Me, when you SEARCH for Me with ALL your heart. Jeremiah 29:11-13
Did you notice what we are suppose to do? CALL, PRAY, SEEK, FIND, SEARCH, ALL. THEN, I will listen to you, THEN you will find me. Like it or not God is a conditional God. When we do our part (obedience), THEN He is always FAITHFUL to do His. Blessings!
11 Now the Angel of the Lord came and sat under the terebinth tree which was in Ophrah, which belonged to Joash the Abiezrite, while his son Gideon threshed wheat in the winepress, in order to hide it from the Midianites. 12 And the Angel of the Lord appeared to him, and said to him, “The Lord is with you, you mighty man of valor!
13 Gideon said to Him, “O my lord, if the Lord is with us, why then has all this happened to us? And where are all His miracles which our fathers told us about, saying, ‘Did not the Lordbring us up from Egypt?’ But now the Lord has forsaken us and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites.”
14 Then the Lord turned to him and said, “Go in this might of yours, and you shall save Israel from the hand of the Midianites. Have I not sent you?”
15 So he said to Him, “O my Lord, how can I save Israel? Indeed my clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father’s house.”16 And the Lord said to him, “Surely I will be with you, and you shall defeat the Midianites as one man.”
24 So Gideon built an altar there to the Lord, and called it The-Lord-Is-Peace. To this day it is still in Ophrah of the Abiezrites.
What questions are you asking God today? The Lord says He will never leave you or forsake you. Do you have a new sense of security in Him, that all things work for good? All things that happen are not good BUT...they will work for good OF we follow and trust our Lord and savior. He is the only one who knows the beginning from the end. Trust in Him today with all your questions. #Questions4God
Fools show their annoyance at once,
but the prudent overlook an insult.
An honest witness tells the truth,
but a false witness tells lies.
The words of the reckless pierce like swords,
but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
Truthful lips endure forever,
but a lying tongue lasts only a moment.
Deceit is in the hearts of those who plot evil,
but those who promote peace have joy.
No harm overtakes the righteous,
but the wicked have their fill of trouble.
The Lord detests lying lips,
but he delights in people who are trustworthy.
A fool shows their annoyance immediately but an honest prudent person overlooks insults. So much is said in these verses about our tongue and words and truth or lies. Do we plot evil or promote peace? The Lord delights in people who are trustworthy. Can you be trusted? How do you speak to others? Be wise speak truth, peace, love, promote joy! #PromoteJoy
3 My son, do not forget my law,
But let your heart keep my commands;
2 For length of days and long life
And peace they will add to you.
3 Let not mercy and truth forsake you;
Bind them around your neck,
Write them on the tablet of your heart,
4 And so find favor and high esteem
In the sight of God and man.
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.
7 Do not be wise in your own eyes;
Fear the Lord and depart from evil.
8 It will be health to your flesh,
And strength to your bones.
9 Honor the Lord with your possessions,
And with the firstfruits of all your increase;
10 So your barns will be filled with plenty,
And your vats will overflow with new wine.
Here in the first 10 verses is wisdom for the young in age, or young in maturity. When we are you we think we know it all but...the Lord sys to remember His law and keep His commands. This is wisdom for all our lives. When we trust in the Lord with all our heart lean on His understanding and not our own acknowledging all His ways He will direct our paths. When we fear the Lord and depart from evil it will be health to us and strength for us. It goes on to tell us to honor the Lord with our possessions, our first fruits of ALL our increase. In God's economy the key to financial increase is 'GIVING'! We have no control God alone is our source! #KeyToFinancialIncrease #Giving
Instructions for the Conquest of Canaan
Now the Lord spoke to Moses in the plains of Moab by the Jordan, across fromJericho, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘When you have crossed the Jordan into the land of Canaan, then you shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, destroy all their engraved stones, destroy all their molded images, and demolish all their high places; you shall dispossess the inhabitants of the land and dwell in it, for I have given you the land to possess.
We must go back and read verses 1 through 37 of this chapter to see the journeys of the Israelites. Then compare with America's journey through many trials and struggles in the past. Now the Lord spoke to Moses instructions to conquer the land of Canaan. We can see how we must conquer the land of America in the spiritual realm. We MUST DRIVE ut all the evil spirits from before us and destroy the idols, lust of money and power, greed, any thing in our lives that keeps us from hearing and obeying he Lord in our lives. God gave us this land and we must possess it with our prayers of His Word for victory over the enemy. What scripture do you know and meditate on when you are in need of help? SPEAK it forth for the Lord's Words will go forth and change the atmosphere in your home, work place, and our nation. #SpeakGodsWord #InstructionsforAmerica #VictoryinJesus
A Plea for Relief from Persecutors
I cry out to the Lord with my voice;
With my voice to the Lord I make my supplication.
I pour out my complaint before Him;
I declare before Him my trouble.
When my spirit was overwhelmed within me,
Then You knew my path.
In the way in which I walk
They have secretly set a snare for me.
Look on my right hand and see,
For there is no one who acknowledges me;
Refuge has failed me;
No one cares for my soul.
I cried out to You, O Lord:
I said, “You are my refuge,
My portion in the land of the living.
Attend to my cry,
For I am brought very low;
Deliver me from my persecutors,
For they are stronger than I. Bring my soul out of prison,
That I may praise Your name;
The righteous shall surround me,
For You shall deal bountifully with me.”
Have you cried out to the Lord? Are you felling persecuted today by family, friends, other believers? Pour our your heart to God. He knows how you feel. But know that God loves you and is waiting for you to ask Him for relief. Why? So when relief comes we know it's from the Lord. We will praise Him as He gives us strength to carry on. We show Him our love for Him by forgiving our persecutors, praying for them and being filled with joy and peace knowing He is in control and "All is well". The Lord is our deliverer, our provider, our strength, and our refuge. Be a blessing and you will be blessed. #Persecuted #Forgiven #Delivered #BeaBlessing #BeBlessed
Answer me speedily, O Lord;
My spirit fails!
Do not hide Your face from me,
Lest I be like those who go down into the pit.
Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning,
For in You do I trust;
Cause me to know the way in which I should walk,
For I lift up my soul to You.
Deliver me, O Lord, from my enemies;
In You I take shelter.[a]
Teach me to do Your will,
For You are my God;
Your Spirit is good.
Lead me in the land of uprightness.
Revive me, O Lord, for Your name’s sake!
For Your righteousness’ sake bring my soul out of trouble.
In Your mercy cut off my enemies,
And destroy all those who afflict my soul;
For I am Your servant.
Do you trust in the seen or the unseen? Do you trust in this world or God? Choose this day whom you will serve! Whom you will put ALL (100%) of your trust in.
