“Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6).
We are living in a hurting world right now with many struggling and many lost and deceived. We are called by God to be a light to the world around us. We must let the world see that we have peace and a hope that they can have also.
Don’t you dare be moved by people that are acting foolish, slanderous, and evil. Keep on moving forward in your walk with Jesus Christ and share the hope you have in Him. People are being used by the devil as distractions. Laugh at the devil and rejoice. Be like Nehemiah and stay on the wall building and obeying God—advancing His Kingdom. Ignore naysayers and pray the Word of God back to the Father.
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).
Praise Him ahead of whatever you are walking through right now. I know what it feels like to be weary and exhausted from fighting battles. Opposition and attacks are part of the Christian walk. But God is greater.
It is written, “And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.” —Psalm 9:10
HIS love and mine,
Jesus paid the debt for sin that we could never pay ourselves. We must make the choice to receive the gift of salvation through repentance and confession to spend eternity with God. Then we are transformed in our hearts and can extend forgiveness. There is power in forgiveness!
“You, LORD, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to you. (Psalm 86:5).
Forgiveness at its fullest can truly be realized when both parties move toward healing and reconciliation that only comes through genuine repentance. While it does not remove the effects of great harm done, or the absolute need to be discerning in how we move forward in dealing with unhealthy relationships, we must choose to forgive to truly live. There are times when it is best to remove yourself from longterm situations of lies and deception to experience restoration and healing.
Every situation is different! But YOU can truly be free by choosing to forgive! Every person will stand before God and give account. Give everything to God and move forward to experience healing and refreshing.
There is great power in forgiveness.
God loves you!
His love and mine,
Several years ago, I was driving my car on the interstate and a rock came out of nowhere and hit the windshield–cracking it. I called the insurance company and filed the claim, and then heard this rather lengthly explanation as to why they would not and could not replace the same windshield from factory–(which would cause some of the systems not to work properly.)
Immediately, the HOLY SPIRIT put in my spirit to cast it all over on the LORD. So I told the man (very nicely) that I was simply going to turn this entire situation over to the LORD. He said, “What?” I said, “I am turning this over to the LORD” and headed to the airport for a flight to another state. The next day, I went to a lunch with a friend in the city and we walked back to her area of work–where I met a total stranger and started helping her select items and talking to her about life. Then my phone rang–and it was the car dealership telling me how much the windshield would cost me–since my insurance was not being cooperative. I told the rep at the dealership that I was highly disappointed in the insurance company (and named the company)….guess what, the total stranger that I had just met and was helping–she said, “I work for that company and my boss is the head of corporate.” She asked me to give her a few minutes. In about three minutes, she hands me her phone after speaking with her boss–I explained what was happening–and he told me that he would handle it. The check was delivered to the dealership to pay for my windshield IN FULL later that day. I was still out of state–and before I could even get my car to the dealership, It was fully covered.
Somebody needs to hear this! Cast ALL your cares over on the LORD. If He cares enough to handle a “windshield” problem, how much more does HE CARE about the injustice, the betrayal, the cancer, the family problems, the marriage issue, the financial issue, the physical issue, or whatever you are facing? Trust the LORD today… cast all your cares over on HIM. He cares for YOU! AMEN. Do it now! (The full story and other encouraging praise reports are in God’s Priceless Treasure…my first book published by Charisma/Creation House Press 2011). God bless you!!!!
