Tag: God is faithful

Many of us have dreams, visions, ambitions and aspirations in life that are beyond our mental comprehension to fully grasp the detailed process to accomplishing the seemingly impossible dreams and visions.  Well you are not alone because I have big dreams and visions of the future that when I look at my present circumstance it seems so impossible to attain them.  God might have spoken to you about your future, His promises over your life, ministry and you are wondering how will you get there or achieve God’s preordained and predestined plans and purposes. Planning requires faith to fulfill those dreams.

Planning is the key to structuring the step by step process to your dreams.  What is faith? Faith is believing the impossible coming to manifestation.  Faith is the substance of things hoped for, evidence of things not yet seen (Hebrews 11:1).  Planning helps to activate your faith through the hope having of an expected end in Christ.  It gets even more better when you involve the Holy Spirit in setting the structure and order of your plans. Life without planning means wherever it leads you, is okay with you.  Your life would be tossed around, up and down like a Yoyo without set goals and strategies to arriving at your destined destination.

A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps. Proverbs 16:9

There are many plans in a man’s heart, nevertheless the Lord’s counsel—that will stand. Proverbs 19:21

There is nothing whatsoever stopping you from planning or structuring your life according to God’s purpose and plans.  However man proposes but God disposes.  Involve God the Master Planner and He would direct your path. Trust God’s instructions, blueprint and commands and He will order your steps. If in the past you never planned or structured how the day would start and end.  Today is the day to initiate planning.  Start your day with God giving Him all the glory and honor for all that He has done in your life. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you plan your days, weeks, months and years. Decree fruitfulness, command your mornings to be a beautiful day of joy, peace, increase and abundance of His blessing.  Walk by faith and not by sight for only His counsel will stand if you believe with your heart and know that He is a faithful God, full of grace and His mercies endures forever.

There are times in life when you feel like giving up, you might have tried every possible solution but there seemed to be no hope.  The Doctors  may have written you off and prepared your death certificate without a glimmer of hope.  You have sought for help but no one is interested or willing to render support.  Could it be that you have a court case where your Lawyer cant defend you in court rather encourages you to plead guilty.  All hope is not lost, put your trust in God the author and finisher of your faith

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life. Proverbs 13:12

It is so easy to loose hope when you keep feeding your mind with the negative, discouraging, faithless words rather than discover what the word of God states over the issue and stand firmly on the Word.  Hope deferred makes the heart sick but when you keep dreams alive of His promises that is full of hope, joy and satisfaction in Him, I can guarantee you that you will never fail.  You shall come out of that situation alive and victorious.

Hope is the mother of faith, faith is built from the foundation of hope.  Faith is established in hope.  Faith starts with hope, without hope you cant have faith.  They are like husband and wife, they connect with one another, they understand one another and cant do without each other.  Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen Hebrews 11:1

Hope causes you to be highly expectant like a pregnant woman who is excited and looking forward to the safe delivery of her child.  She speaks to the child in her womb, eats the right food and ensures that she attends every hospital appointment.  Similarly be encouraged to see the Doctors report, court case or any other challenges that you are experiencing from His perspective.  When the Doctor says ‘it is over start preparing for your funeral’, you reject and nullify the Doctors  reports  and decree that by His stripes you are healed, you are alive in Christ for He lives in you the hope of glory.

For surely there is a latter end [a future and a reward], and your hope and expectation shall not be cut off. Proverbs 23:18amp

If you have a  court case that you cant find a Solicitor to defend you because it seemingly looks hopeless and you have reached the dead end.  Present your case before the Lord God, your Chief Advocate who is just and righteous.  “Present your case,” says the Lord“Bring forth your strong reasons,” says the King of Jacob. Isaiah 41:21.  He will never fail you, He is forever faithful and triumphantly victorious.  So what are your strong reasons why the case should be be thrown out of court or turned around to your favour, present it before Heavenly Father in boldness and confidence and watch Him perform His might acts.

All hope is not lost, it is not over until the Lord says so.  He is not asleep, His eyes are wide open, He sees and knows it all.  Why worry when you can pray, seeking Him in spirit and truth. And He will surely answer you because He loves you dearly.  It is time to start changing your mindset to rise above your problems and visualise it from His perspective.   Your testimony is here only if you could see it.  The Lord is about to breakthrough supernaturally for you for His name to be glorified.

Has there ever been a time when you lost hope but the Lord intervened on your behalf?  Comments are encouraged lets keep hope alive and strong

Thank you

It is so easy to let life pass by and forget every good reason to be grateful to God.  We can get so easily distracted by the challenges, circumstances and the main essence of living.  We can get entangled with the ups and downs,  distresses of life that appreciating God becomes a mere thing to us.  So I took time out to reflect on the seven reasons to be grateful to God.

#1 LIFE

I would like to appreciate God for being alive  as a living being not as a living doing or dead being.  Being who I am in Him not in my efforts but resting in Him in spirit and truth, permitting Him to take full control.   It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life John 6:63.

#2 NATURE

Have you ever walk along the road, in the fields or park with the aim of appreciating His beautiful nature created by Him and most importantly the air we breath.   I am really grateful to God for He is the air I breathe, His presence brings life to  me.  When the wind blows His spirit moves.   He has given us dominion and authority over the fish of the sea, birds of the air, the animals, over every creeping thing on earth and all the earth (Genesis 1:26).  It is a privilege to have full access to the earthly nature and enjoy life in abundance.

#3 FRIENDS, FAMILIES, LOVED ONES AND DESTINY HELPERS

Thank you Lord for bringing alongside my Husband, friends and families to love, support and encourage me.  Life without my loved ones is an aimless worthless one.  I appreciate you all for the Lord using you as an instrument to impact my life especially my loving Husband.  Moreover the people whom I call destiny helpers the Lord has connected me with that helped, guided and mentored me in fulfilling God’s purpose in my life, I would like to say a big thank you.  God has divinely orchestrated it all to fall into alignment with His plans and purposes

#4 HE IS MY PROVIDER

I cant take for granted the fact that He has been my provider from the beginning and will be to the end. My daily needs are catered for (Matthew 6:11).  Knowing that He has a storehouse of secret treasures waiting for me to walk into and possess with boldness and courage of who I am in Him.  It has already been made available so I thank You Heavenly Father for giving me divine access to all that I require and desire according to Your will.

#5 HE IS MY HIDING PLACE

When challenges or problems try to overwhelm me, I find refuge in Him.  Perfect peace, perfect rest is found in Him.  He is my hiding place, my place of refuge, place of rest and restoration in Him.  I have learnt to trust in Him even when my mind cant comprehend but my heart trusts in Him.  Thank You for being my hiding place during the storms of life.

#6 BECAUSE HE IS GOD

I cant complain because You are God, You are the first and the Last.  Everything works out for good because You love me and I am called according to Your purpose (Romans 8:28).  You called me Your beloved daughter in whom You are well pleased with.  I have a PHL degree (PRECIOUS HONORED LOVED) in You (Isaiah 43:4).  Therefore I am not afraid of who I am in You, THANK YOU JESUS

#7  I STILL STANDING

This year has been challenging for me with problems and circumstances being thrown at me everywhere nevertheless I am still standing.  You never gave up on me and You will never leave me nor forsake me.  These problems have tried to weigh me down but His yoke is easy and His burdens are light.  What a wonderful God He is, what a loving Father He is, I AM THANKFUL TO GOD

There is so much more to write about but these seven reasons to be grateful to God are a starting point,  They are endless, I can never stop thanking God for who He is,  all He has done and will do.  I keep my eyes fixed on Him not on my surroundings, my eyes are permanently set above not below, I look up to the sky and trust Him to see me through it all.

While at work listening to music, the song that drew my attention was Through it all by Andrae Crouch .  I took time out to reflect on the words of the song.  Asking myself questions of if I have been able to trust Jesus through all the trials and tribulations, ups and downs of life, when all around you are not working according to your intentional plans.  Could I really say through it all I have learnt to trust Him all the way?

Trusting God  during challenging times can be so difficult and frustrating because your mind cant seem to comprehend why you dont have a job yet when you are highly experienced in your field of  job application.  Or why your marriage is breaking down and the Lord says trust Me I can and will work it out.  Could it be that you have found yourself in a difficult dilemma that you cant seem to get out off.

With your mind you know what the Word of God states and with your heart you believe.   In my opinion trust has so much to do with the heart than the mind.  Because sometimes you might have a deeper understanding of the Word but do you believe without a doubt, beyond reasonable doubt that He is able and willing to see you through it all.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him,  and He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6

God allows you to pass through lonely hours of trials and tribulations so you can learn to trust Jesus Christ all the way through till you receive your breakthrough and triumphant victory in Him.

It is time to thank God for those mountains and valleys that you have been passing through in the past and present.   Appreciate Him for walking with you through those mountains and teaching you to trust in Jesus.  As He teaches you through the power of the Holy Spirit, you learn to depend completely on His Word.

He never fails, He will never fail you so through it all can you learn to trust and believe in God ?  His Word remains the same yersterday, today and forever.   When He speaks it comes to pass.  Will you be patient through it all to see the end of the matter, for the end is better than the beginning.

When challenges tries to weigh you down or you are  being overwhelmed by  problems at work, in your marriage or  financial difficulties.  You have tried every tricks in the book but nothing ever seems to work out rather it gets worse.  You have various choices either to forget there is God and accept it as a norm or take a stand not giving up regardless of what you are passing through and remain faithful to the Lord God till the end.  For the best is yet to come and this is only temporary, for it is not over until the Lord says so.  You know what, you can overcome them all

When you experience challenges or hurdles in life, He is there to walk with you through the fire and you will not get burnt, when you pass through the waters it shall not overflow you and He is with you always (Isaiah 43:2).  The fact is you will experience problems that could range from your inability to pay your bills, rent to worse scenarios of facing eviction, repossession of your property, terminal illness and so on.

No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it 1 Corinthian 10:13

But how you deal with them all knowing that God would not allow you to pass through trials or temptations that would be too much for you to handle.  He knows your limitations and knows that you can overcome them all, from the little day to day problems to the worse discouraging frustrating problems.

He is faithful to see you through it all.  Don’t ever give up on God because He won’t give up on you.  He is able and willing to deliver and see you through your traumatic depressing pains of the present, past and future circumstances.  He wants you to walk with Him and He would work it out, for His yoke is easy and His burdens are light.  Take His yoke and find rest in Him

Whatever you are going through is only temporary and it all shall be over very soon.  You are an overcomer in the Lord Jesus Christ.  When it feels like you are about to have a pity party; why me, when God when, this is not fair, why do You hate me so much, I can’t move on any longer, I tired of waiting, why don’t I just die or kill myself because this is too much and much more.

Take your authority in Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit, begin to decree and declare , for God has given you power and authority to pull down and destroy everything that is not of God, build and establish His word and promises over your life as it is in heaven.  Whatever you bind in your environment, life  is bound in heaven, whatever you break loose in your environment, life is  loosed in heaven.

 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you Luke 10:19

 “Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven Matthew 18:18

MY PRAYER FOR YOU

Father I pray that You come and give Your children perfect peace, soundness of mind and love.  Bring them to the place of understanding who you are in their lives so they can begin to decree and declare a thing and it shall be established, bind and loose as it is in heaven, open and shut doors with your power and authority as Royalties, Chosen Ones, and Royal Priesthoods in You.  Heal their broken hearts, give them Your yoke for it is easy to carry and bring them to a place of rest and restoration.  Whatever they have lost may they pursue and recover all in abundance in Jesus Name Amen.
