Take what faith you have and USE it!! That’s how our faith GROWS!! What FAITH STEP is God waiting on you to take? TRUST HIM!!
Don’t overlook the small things and don’t underestimate their importance!
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” Isaiah 43:2 NIV
No matter what is happening in your life, never forget that the Lord is walking with you through it.
Lord, help me to look at YOU and not on what is going on around me!
“…Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me.” Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”” Matthew 14:29-31 ESV
May we KEEP OUR EYES UPON JESUS!
“Under a Tornado Watch…Tropical Storm Elsa. UPDATE: Tornado Watch cancelled!”
Within the hour of me posting about the tornado watch this morning, it was cancelled. It just goes to show – things can change quickly…in weather and in life!
We should always be “watchmen.” Watching for physical storms AND spiritual storms!!
For thus the Lord said to me: “Go, set a watchman; let him announce what he sees.” Isaiah 21:6
…”Upon a watchtower I stand, O Lord, continually by day, and at my post I am stationed whole nights.” Isaiah 21:8
Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchmen stays awake in vain. Psalm 127:1
Lord, watch over our city…our state…our country…our world!! Open our eyes, O Lord! Empower us to be Your watchmen! Empower us to be Your voice! In the mighty name of Jesus I pray! AMEN!
It makes all the difference in the world when we read Scripture EXPECTING that the LORD will teach us and impact us through the inspired words that we read! (2 Timothy 3:16)
Then our reading changes from being a “discipline” to becoming a “treasure hunt!” And that is exciting!
Thank You, LORD, for Your Word! Your Truths are indeed a “treasure” that we want to store up within our minds, souls, and spirits!
We are indeed “rich” when we store up Your Treasure, Your Word, within our hearts…and then ACT on Your Truth!
May we spread Your Treasure upon this earth. May we not just be HEARERS of Your Word…but may we be DOERS!! (James 1:22). AMEN!!
We are in a New Season of time! The Lord is calling His Church to step up and be the Ekklesia He means us to be! He doesn’t want us to be satisfied with what was…but He wants us to join Him in what is to be! I am ready to step out into all He has planned! How about you?
I have been immersed in Zoom during this Covid season. Meetings, church services, ministry conferences, family time – all have been delegated to zoom or some type of video conferencing as we find ourselves separated due to this pandemic.
I have to admit, I am challenged by all of this. I find myself actually looking online about how to walk this technology road successfully.
In my search, I stumbled across a video I had done about 4 years ago. I don’t believe I ever posted it (due to my insecurity with technology). But, as I watched it, I felt the encouragement of the Lord to post it. I know that there is someone out there that needs this encouragement and truth today.
Thank You, Lord, for what YOU will do in and through this message!!
