Hanging On By A Thread? 

Standard

1 Peter 5:7-11 (MSG)  6-7 So be content with who you are, and don’t put on airs. God’s strong hand is on you; he’ll promote you at the right time. Live carefree before God; he is most careful with you. 8-11 Keep a cool head. Stay alert. The Devil is poised to pounce, and would like nothing better than to catch you napping. Keep your guard up. You’re not the only ones plunged into these hard times. It’s the same with Christians all over the world. So keep a firm grip on the faith. The suffering won’t last forever. It won’t be long before this generous God who has great plans for us in Christ—eternal and glorious plans they are!—will have you put together and on your feet for good. He gets the last word; yes, he does.

It is time for us to stop believing the lie that things will always go the way we want them. Yes we do get what we want at times but if that was the case always, we would never learn to appreciate the process. The process is what God uses to make us. The process develops us and gets us ready for what we have been asking God for. There is protection in unanswered prayers. God does not give us what we want at times but He always gives us what we need.

It is time for us to stop giving people false hope and false expectations. We must stop telling people that everything will be ok when in fact it might not! God does not work everything out the way we think he should but He works it out for our good. It is up to us to see the good in what God does in our lives. Every good and perfect gift comes from God.  Does that mean you give up hope? No, of course not! It means you have to learn to see things from a different perspective. You have to look for the good in each and every situation.  It means we must live by faith and not what we see!

It is time to stop believing that we will receive results just by “waiting on God.” The truth is, we have to do our part. The Bible plainly tells us that faith without works is dead. In 2004 the Lord spoke these four words to us and we have been holding on to them since; practical application and hard work. It takes believing, trusting, praying, but it also takes action, planning, and preparation. Sometimes you have to work your bottom off to get the results you have been looking for. Everything will not be handed to you on a silver platter. Again, that provides little benefit. Even while we are working we need to trust God to do what He does best. Many get trapped here believing that they have to do it all. That is unbalanced as well. God works with us to manifest the vision. He works with us to show us the proper path to take. He provides strength and encouragement when we can’t see the way.

So if you find yourself discouraged today, because you can’t see the forest for the trees and  you feel as though God has abandoned you. You feel alone in your relationship. You are afraid and anxious about the next move or even if you are fighting to hold on to your faith. I challenge you today to let go of your expectations. Let go of your own preconceived notions of how it will all work out and trust that God has a plan and a purpose. Follow His promptings and do obey His voice. That is when you will begin to see breakthrough!

Trust that HE is at work in your life. Cast your cares, all your worries, all your fears, all your doubts on God today knowing that He will strengthen and settle you and bring you to an expected end.

Father, we come to thank You today for all that you have done that we can’t see. So often, we take for granted that You are not there or You are not at work in our lives. Today, we put an end to our doubts, to our fears, to our cares and concerns. We now move out of the way so that You can allow Your perfect work to be done in our lives. For those that are hanging on by a thread, I thank You for opening the eyes of their understanding, grant them peace of mind and the assurance that they need to keep moving forward.  Show yourself strong Father in the lives of Your people. Thank You for doing exceedingly abundantly above all we may ask or even think. In Jesus’ Holy name. Amen

Grace and Peace,

Mary

God Has a Plan

Standard

 

My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will [not what I desire], but as You will and desire. Matthew 26:39b (AMPC)

It is not always easy to understand the will of our Father, but it is imperative that we choose to follow His lead. I have come to understand that He knows best. We don’t have to know all the details. It is up to us to TRUST His heart concerning us.

So, today, I encourage you not to lose hope in the midst of the pain you may be feeling right now. God has a plan. His plan is not always understood but it will be revealed. You may not know what tomorrow holds, but follow His voice as He leads you step by step to the next place He has for you. He is a God of purpose. He uses the good, the bad and the ugly to work together for our good. Trust Him.

Father, it is so hard for us to understand Your will at times. We know what we desire to happen, but that is not always what You desire. Teach us Father to submit our will to Yours. Teach us to trust Your heart for us. Teach us not only to know Your ways but to know  Your character. Teach us to find our peace and assurance in Your love for us. May we come to understand that Your plans are to give us an expected end and a hope. Let Your will be done in our lives Lord. In Jesus name Amen.

Grace and Peace,

Mary

Restoration is on the way…

Standard

The Lord says, “I will give you back what you lost to the swarming locusts, the hopping locusts, the stripping locusts, and the cutting locusts. It was I who sent this great destroying army against you. Joel 2:25 (NLT)

wordswag_1472725646882

The Lord is in the process of building you right now. Although it seems as if you have been stripped on every side, keep your head up. Restoration is on the way.

He is positioning you for what He has prepared for you. Even as Joseph had to be positioned in the land of Egypt through a series of hardships, He is placing you in the place of your birthing. What He has placed on the inside of you will live and not die.

God will perform that which He has promised you. His plans for you cannot be frustrated by the hands of man. Man can only help facilitate God’s plan for you. Do not be afraid my brother, my sister. The vision will speak soon. Be of good courage, restoration belongs to you.

Father, thank you for the great things you have in store for us as your children. The Bible declares that eyes have not seen, nor ears heard the great things you have in store for us. May we focus not on what we see in the natural but on what You have spoken to us directly through your promises, the scriptures. Thank You for being our God and loving us the way that You do. Thank You for performing with Your hands what you have promised even with Your words. In Jesus name Amen

You will get there! Don’t rush your process, there are plenty of lessons to learn along the way.
