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

Yesterday I attended a Praise Gathering Event, we praised God with our hands, voice, heart and whole body.  Today during my quiet time with the Lord, I paused for a moment and thought about different reasons to Praise God, Selah.  The key main reason that connected with me was because You are GOD.  Because You are God that is why I am praising You.  You created me in my mother’s womb and knew me before I was born.  You were there from the beginning  and not for one moment did you leave or forsake me.  You love because I am  more precious than rubies, gold or even diamonds.

Since you were precious in My sight, you have been honored, and I have loved you; therefore I will give men for you, and people for your life. Isaiah 43:4 NKJV

Have you taken time out, paused for a moment and thought about the million reasons to praise God.  Or you wake up in the morning, brush your teeth, have a shower, put on your cloths and go to work.  Forgetting that He is the one that woke you up this morning.  But you just get on with life, I mean that’s the norm for you.  So what is your  reason for praising and thanking God? Do you really mean what you say or are they memorised words?  Lets appreciate God for who He is……. Because You are God, what He has done and about to do and praise Him for His mighty works.

I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.  12 I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds.” Psalm 77:11-12 NIV

In the past I waited for situations to get better or to improve to my advantage before I praised God.  But now I realised that there is a secret to praising God, Praise your way through  your breakthrough if you need a breakthrough.   You enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise, rejoice for it’s a new day, Psalm 100:4.  In the midst of it all, I praise God because the devil can’t stand my praise, they tremble at the shouts of praises offered to God.   I praise Him in the storm, rain and even on the dry land.

[Chorus]

And I’ll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
And every tear I’ve cried
You hold in Your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm   

Song by Casting Crowns Praise You in the Storm (Song), Life Song (Album)

Because You are God I have a reason to praise You
It does not matter what  circumstance is, the pains, hurts or frustration I face
Whether I am up or down, happy or sad, sorrowful or joyful I will praise You
When I wake up in the morning, I remember it’s because You are God that I am alive
I travel everyday to work and come back home safely
Travel miles away from home and still come back safely
Then I think about Your grace, journey mercies, and protection because You are God
I think about what You have done in the past for me
How you delivered me from bondage now I am completely free because You are God
I think about my present challenges, knowing that You have seen me through
So Lord I thank You and praise You because You are truly God

Comment on what God has done for you because He is God and praise Him for He is good and His mercies endures forever

Praise God

How do you praise your way through the storm? When do you praise your way through to God? Is it when you are happy or sad? Does your present circumstances, emotional state of mind determine when to praise your way through to God?

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving anda thank offering and into His courts with praise! Be thankful and say so to Him, bless and affectionately praise His name! Psalm 100:4 amp

All heavens declare the glory of the risen Lord
Let the earth bow down and worship the most high God
How great thou art, You reign in majesty
From victory to victory, mighty in battle are You

When I think about the good things You have done
I lift my hands up and shout praises to Jehovah Nisi
Even when I am feeling down, discouraged and disheartened
I sing praise to Your holy name
The devil flees forcefully at the sound of the name of Jesus
Something happens
Shackles are broken loose, the bound are set free
Breakthrough happens, divine exchange takes place

So Lord I praise my way through every situation
It does not matter how hard or challenging it is
During the stormy or rainy days
Praise is the secret code to entering into His presence

Praise

 

Magnificent Creator

I could not help thinking about the greatness of GOD, how magnificent my creator is.  I found myself in my intimate moments of expressing His greatness and mighty works of His hands.
For you created my inmost being;  you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise youbecause I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful,  I know that full well.   My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Psalm 139:13-15 NIV

The Magnificent Creator is the creator of the universe and magnificent in all His ways
How great are You Lord,
How mighty are the works of your hands
How awesome are You Lord
Great is Your faithfulness in the beauty of Your holiness
The work You started in me You will surely complete

You knew me even before my parents thought of conceiving me
You called me and set me apart for your works
How marvelous are You Lord
Who can comprehend the works of Your hands
You created me so wonderfully in your sight

Your love for me is so deep
That it pierces my heart
Your words so sweet
Sweet like honey in my lips
Your touch so affectionate
I have truly embraced You
You are my comforter
The lover of my soul
