Slow Down…What is the Rush?

IMG_1523350714083Always thinking about this or that and what you should do next? Stirring up all kinds of confusion in your head. Okay inhale. Now exhale. Some of the stuff we do is not lining up with what God said to do and now you got double the trouble. Slow down and stop rushing. Stop and pray to God for direction and if he doesn’t answer right away maybe he wants you to be still. Know that he is God and it all has to work out for your good.

We Need Spiritual Strength

Nothing will overtake me and whatever test and trials may come I will rise up, because I know where my strength comes from. Think about all that you have been through and how Christ gave you the strength to get through it every time. Give him thanks right now!! If he strengthened you then, I’m sure he will strengthen you today, tomorrow, and the days ahead. Believers don’t need to stress. Activate the Holy Spirit on the inside of you.

When you feel that you can’t make it stop and know Ephesians 3:20 KJV Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us….

You already have what it takes to be strong, you just have to read the word daily so you can apply the strength that God has already given you. Praise the Lord!!  Because an idle mind is were the devil gains power over us.

Therefore, when we are weak whether it is physically, mentally, or emotionally, meditate on his word.

How will you be strengthened? Ephesians 3:16 KJV That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man

What can we do with Christ’s strength? Phil 4:13 KJV I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Psalm 54:4 NIV Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me.

Dear Father God I ask that you strengthen whoever may be reading this. Lord we cannot do anything without you and we thank you for the Holy Spirit that gives us strength when we are weak. For your strength God is made perfect in our weakness. We lay it all at your feet and thank you for being the God of grace and mercy and our strong tower in a time of weakness, trouble, or sorrow in Jesus precious name Amen.

 

 

We Can Stand Out

 

I am Deeply loved 2

We want to be soooo different and stand out from the crowd and yet at the same time we want to be like our favorite celebrities and a few of our friends. Which one is it? Do we want to stand out or be like someone else? I’m here to tell you, that you can have them both. Follow righteousness and holiness, JESUS – and he is far bigger than any fame or fortune. And following Jesus (as you know requires obedience) we will stand out!!

 
We are a peculiar people and we belong to God. It says it in His word.

 

1Peter 2:9 KJV But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light…

 
1Pet 2:9 NIV But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.

 
We will stand out because we are born again, transformed, and filled with the Holy Spirit. Being a child of God, you are different and set apart to do great things. Go do something great!!
