If God has told you to take a stand against something wrong, He will give you the strength and encouragement you need for as long as you need it to continue the fight. It is amazing who and what He will use to help you get through tough times.
God doesn’t require perfection and “having it all together in advance.” He wants to use you starting with where you are now to carry out His "purpose" for your life.
The next time you are stressed out because you need an answer and God hasn’t given one yet, remember that sometimes He wants to see just how much you will trust Him and depend on Him to work everything out.
Trials and tests can be tough, and most of the time we try to do everything possible to avoid them. But until you have faced adversity and overcome it, you will never know the immense strength God will provide to accomplish something you never thought possible.
Truth is still truth no matter if you believe it to be the truth. So when you come face to face with it, what will you do? #truth #walkintruth
Will you look at the world around you and think God can’t use YOU to bring about change? Or will you be light in a dark world because you are following the plan that God has specifically chosen for YOUR life?
You must be open to change in order to be used by God to make a difference for eternity in the life of someone else.
Satan desires to keep us dull, lifeless and only thinking of ourselves and our own problems. As long as he can do that, he has won a huge battle in our lives.
People get frustrated and burnt out when they do things that are not what God has told them to do.
But… when you are in the center of His Will, the ideas come at break-neck speed and you find that you absolutely cannot carry all them out without God sending others to help you and share your vision.
10-15 minutes per day might not seem like much when you think about it in the context of just one day. But when you do it consistently for 365 days, it turns into a very positive thing that can dramatically change your life.
God reveals His Plan; then He prepares you to carry out His Plan. As you are waiting for that to happen, He sends you through the wilderness of testing to grow, refine, and strengthen you. When you come out of the wilderness, you are ready to be used for His Glory.
To know when and how to leave a situation is just as important as knowing God has told you to leave the situation. God WILL give you the supernatural strength to do what God has called you to do.
Allow God to use YOU to leave a lasting legacy for good like He was able to use Hannah. But Eli And Annas chose to disobey God and suffered grave consequences!
We must constantly make sure that our eye has not become diseased and that our body is not full of darkness (shadiness or obscurity) instead of light (luminous, to shine). The bright shining of a candle means glaring or lightning. When our eye is single it is folded together or clear. We can see things very clearly.
Real love is doing what is best for the other person – not just giving them what they think they want at the time. Sometimes God has to say NO to our selfish prayers because He knows if He give us certain things it will not be good for us and will draw us away from Him.
When God brings deliverance, it will usually be in a way you never imagined.
Be not afraid nor dismayed...the battle is not yours but Gods. 2 Chronicles 20: 15 God gave Israel an awesome deliverance because they fully trusted Him and walked in obedience to His instructions.
Your job is to sow good seeds each day and leave the results to God as to how he wants to grow and prosper those seeds you have sown. Don’t put God in a box and expect Him to only act in a certain way to meet a need or solve a problem. Be open to whatever way He chooses to handle things.
The ancient refinement process for gold removed silver as a dross. God does the same in your life to purify you for that which is MOST PRECIOUS.
Don't just do good things that keep you busy if they are not ordained and anointed by God. But if you are a people pleaser, it might be hard to stop doing some of the things that may have unknowingly become your identity.
Accomplishing God's purposes for your life is the greatest thing you can pass down to future generations. As you walk in God's Will, the things of this world will pale in comparison to the awsesomeness of seeing how He works in your life.
You trade your life for something every day. You can be limited, be destroyed, or grow by things around you, how you react to them and how much they influence you.
No one can be responsible for where or how we each begin. No one has the freedom to do anything or everything, and all choices bring consequences.
What we choose to do next, though, how to spend our resources or attention or effort, this is what defines us.
Jesus became the once-and-for-all High Priest who paved the way for unholy man to be able to reach a HOLY GOD.
Christ wants not nibblers of the possible, but grabbers of the impossible. Have you lost your sense of urgency to pray for miracles in the lives of those around you who might desperately need a touch from God?
