Genuine love, and genuine sacrifice is difficult to ignore-“Lowering people through roofs,” looks different for each of us. But rest assured that God has creative ways for each of us to get people into His presence. But it will include the sacrifice of love time, and energy! #WeGetThemToHim #HeDoesTheWork
The redeeming, never ending, game changing truth is simply this: The Lord is WITH you!
Life can be incredibly beautiful, and incredibly messy. There are days we feel we “ran through a troop and leaped over a wall” TOTAL VICTORY! Then there are days we feel the “wall and the troop” ran over us. But every day can be a day of rest, when we continually cast it all into HIS hands in prayer! Releasing the mess, and allowing the “REST” of God to sustain us! #Psalms18 #Hebrews4
There is a PLACE, where “It can’t happen,” HAPPENS! And you realize while you were waiting, God was WORKING! Fear made it seem impossible but God made it possible! And the crisis gave you an opportunity, to trust God on a level you never knew was possible! #HeTurnsAllThingsForGood#WhenWeTrustHim
Long before you woke up this morning, and long after you go to sleep tonight, the Spirit of God was circling you with songs of deliverance. He has been been circling you since the day you were conceived, and He’s circling you until the day you you die. He is praying hard for us with groanings that cannot be formatted into words, and those intercessions should fill us with unspeakable CONFIDENCE. He cares for us, He fights for us, He has our BEST interest in mind, and SUPERNATURAL THINGS begin to happen when we tagteam with Him and do the same thing.”Thou shall compass me about with songs of deliverance” Ps 32:7 Be at peace, you are dearly loved, and cared for!
A BEAUTIFUL promise to all those who live their lives to bless others!
Worry will never get you anywhere! Trusting God will safely take you through every day with peace, victory, and hope!
Never underestimate God’s power to rescue His people from ALL their troubles. #Psalms34
Thought for the day…boundaries…A recent action movie we watched illustrated today’s thought. In this particular show, as the shootout ensues, the camera pans to a large, ornate fish take full of colorful fish of all shapes and sizes and you just know. Seconds later, CRASH! The shootout takes out the fish tank. Fish, glass and water are flung every which way, leaving the poor little fishies to die on the floor, likely even garnering a close-up for the camera as they flop helplessly. This reminded me that without boundaries, we die. Boundaries are no fun sometimes but vitally necessary. Anyone who has visited the Grand Canyon can tell you on the edge of the lookout area there is a guard rail. That boundary is an obvious one. Most of us are smart enough not to cross that boundary because the impending death below is obvious. Spiritual boundaries are not quite so obvious though. You and I don’t as quickly realize that when we cross a boundary it can lead to spiritual death. God’s grace is great, but if we continually overstep it and do things we know we shouldn’t, it most surely will end up in spiritual death. There’s no close-up highlighting our spiritual death, nothing screams “Hey! You just stabbed your soul in the heart and it’s going to bleed to death if you don’t do something quick!!!” Spiritual death is subtle but boundaries keep us alive. And for those in recovery, “Just this once” has been the excuse for more than one disastrous event. “I’ll only get high this one last time” has been the undoing of more than one addict and far to often its that one last time that kills them. Satan is constantly trying to erode our boundaries against sin. The “guard rails” of God’s word allow us to enjoy the beauty of all the things he created for us to enjoy without it killing us. Boundaries can be our friend if we will let them be. Let His guard rails help you enjoy the view!
When we forget the faithfulness of God, we lose faith. That’s why we need to go back to vintage miracles God has already performed in our lives. When you “stand” on the shoulders of past miracles. You begin to see that ANYTHING is POSSIBLE! #ImpossibleBecomesPossible
God is MOVED by our FAITH in Him! Without faith it is impossible to please God! For anyone that comes to Him must believe He exists, and that He is a rewarder of those that diligently seek him. #Hebrews11:6
