You may have things coming against you now, you don’t see how you can keep going. You could live worried, upset, but God is saying, “I’m going to carry you. I have you close to My heart.” He knows what you’re going through: the struggles, the lonely nights, the unfair situations. You’re about to feel strength that you’ve never felt, peace when you could be stressed, favour that will make things happen that you couldn’t make happen. You’re going to look back and think, “How did I make it through that?” It was God sustaining you. God is about to carry you out on eagle’s wings. You’re not going to just make it through; you’re going to soar to levels you’ve never dreamed.
It might seem productive to rush around nonstop, but your body, mind, and soul were not created to function that way.
In todays daily living, majority push their bodies non-stop until they almost collapse from exhaustion. Along the way they neglect what is essential, worshipping God. The Bible reminds us several times that we are to take time to rest.
The significance of rest is discussed several times in the Bible. When God created the Earth, He worked for six days and rested on the seventh day. God did not need to rest, but He did so to set an example for us to follow. Exodus 34:21 says, “Six days you shall work, but on the seventh day you shall rest”. In plowing time and in harvest you shall rest.” Even in the midst of busy seasons, we are commanded to take time to rest.
Dedicating time to rest allows us to spend time in God’s Word and align our hearts with His, and we can return to our work feeling refreshed and able to put forth our best effort.
On this Saturday, give your worries to God and truly rest. Take a break from your busy schedule to find peace in the Lord’s presence, so that when you return to your normal day to day routine, you will do so with a newfound strength that comes from Christ.
Look after one another, in Good and bad times, but especially the weak or the vulnerable. How many times have you heard something to that effect, and how many times have you actually acted? The Lord reminds us to help each other, and it pleases Him to see us do so. Volunteering your time is perhaps the best one could do, but contributing to a food bank for example or sending donations also help! Act today! Is it better the hand that gives than the one that receives?!
When there is darkness ,we cannot see anything, therefore we have to look for ways to get light, either by lighting fire, switch on torch, connect electricity. Same applies to spiritual life, when we don’t have God in our life , there is nothing we can do,because of darkness. He is our way maker and our light, so God turns darkness into light.
Invite God into your life and there will be extreme light forever and ever.
It is very hard for any of us to achieve the things we desire or dream of without visualizing them. When I was young, I recall thinking about how badly I wanted to attend my dream college. I would spend nights, lying awake, envisioning myself in a position where through my faith and determination, I achieved my goals. As we learn in Revelation 4:1-11, John has an experience where he sees God sitting on his throne and describes the beautiful scene. “And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne” (Revelation 4:2). Through John’s vision, we learn that God shows us his dedication to us and provides us with the affirmation that he is ultimately the creator of all things we see possible.
Don’t be afraid to be ambitious about your goals. Hard work never stops ,neither should your dreams.
Our mouths may be filled with all sorts; idle chatter, gossip, news, profanities or slander. Yet it would be best of all to fill it with praise and love. God gave us our voices to not only communicate, but to choose our words wisely. Don’t use it to injure or babble, but to spread his gospel and praise.
You are always one decision away from a totally different life.
PROVERBS 16:24 gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
We are all made by Gods image, we are valuable, we are significant and very important in life. Sometimes life tries to drown out that voice and devalue us ,negative things happen, some people very close to us walk out of our lives, we should realize that struggles and problems try to silence His voice, so we have to allow that voice to be strong in us, what really matters is who you are. You may feel insignificant but God sees you as valuable and exceptional,He sees you as important.
Always remember you are Gods image and keep track of love, kindness and forgiveness.
Genesis 1:27 wherein: God created man in His own image.
Its a good feeling when God shows up just in time, but the feeling is when you realize He had never left you. God never said the road would be easy but he also said he would never leave you nor forsake you. He will cover you with His feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge, His faithfulness will be your shield and rampant, psalm 91:4
People fail, but God doesn’t. They betray you but God won’t He is forever faithful, and He won’t leave you alone, people can forget about you but not God, He is your father and He will hold you in his arms for the rest of your life.
Those who leave everything in Gods hand will eventually see God’s hand in everything.
In every bad situation we need to give thanks to God because there are people in worse situation you can’t imagine, in every dead situation something positive lies around the corner. Everything works together for good to them that are in Christ Jesus, that’s a perfect example of every bad situation has something positive. Let’s learn something in every situation we find ourselves in.
You make a life out of what you have ,not what your missing, your mind is powerful thing when you fill it with positive thoughts, your life will begin to change. There was a time in my life I almost gave up, life was tough, i couldn’t pay rent or buy important needs, but kept on praying and and walked through the rough road, and now I thank God for everything.
Never give up, keeping pushing,keep going and at the end you will smile. No situation is permanent.
At times dark clouds seem to loom one of the last thoughts we would like to choose joy. Often when things are difficult, our focus is on the problems. The anxieties of what could happen, and the fear that things will never change. Each day we have the choice to feed our joy. Choosing joy does not mean faking a smile or pretending , for true joy can exist even in our struggles.
Remember always when we partner with God and our focus to trust and believe what He says, Joy will become the outcome.
