More Than You Can Handle!

I see so many times people making the statement, “God doesn’t give you more than you can handle.”  Actually this is NOT a true statement!  I understand why people say it. They are trying to make someone who is going through a hard time feel better. So they will be encouraged that God knows they can “handle it.”

But, God DOES give us (or allows) us to have more than we can handle on our own so we will realize we need Him to do it!

If we can handle everything on our own – we don’t need Him.  If you look at the Scriptures, you will see many, many examples of people doing amazing feats that they would be incapable of handling “on their own.”

Whatever you are going through…God is MORE THAN ABLE to see you through it! He is with you every step of the way!

I’M READY! ARE YOU?

I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD!  I KNOW EVERYTHING THAT IS GOING ON IN YOUR LIFE. DO YOU THINK IT COMES AS A SURPRISE TO ME?  I KNOW ALL!  I AM HERE READY TO MOVE ON YOUR BEHALF. HAVE YOU COME TO ME AND ASKED ME TO JOIN YOU IN YOUR JOURNEY… OR ARE YOU TRYING TO HANDLE IT YOURSELF?

IT’S TIME TO MAKE A CHOICE!  CONTINUE TO TRUST IN YOUR OWN ABILITY…OR TURN TO ME…TRUST IN ME…AND ALLOW ME TO RELEASE MY WILL IN YOUR LIFE.

ARE YOU READY TO LET GO?  ARE YOU READY TO LET ME?  I’M READY!  ARE YOU?

The Lord’s Plans!

The Lord’s plans are unfolding in our lives! Some of these plans will not “look like” what we have been used to in the past. Some of these plans are not conforming to our timeframe.

But His plans ARE good and we must trust Him and step out in faith. We must be open and willing for HIS PLANS to open up before us – whatever they may be. And we must be willing and open to let Him take us where we need to go – wherever that may be.

TRUST IN THE LORD!!

 

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV)

Who Are You?

Who are you? Your identity is who GOD says you are!  

Brothers and Sisters, do not let people tell you who you are. Do not let circumstances tell you who you are. 

God, and He alone, knows who you truly are!

WHEN YOU LIMIT YOURSELF~YOU LIMIT GOD!

Do you hear Him calling you to greater things? Things that you have never considered doing in the Kingdom?  

Have faith! He only needs your willingness and He will equip you for the call!! Hallelujah!

Are you willing?

God Will Get The Glory!

I looked around my room and realized the time had come! There were piles everywhere! Clothes, books, papers, shoes…how had I let it get so junked up? I like for things to be organized. I like to have things in place. When my surroundings are in order…I feel more in order. When things around me are in chaos…I feel a sense of being out of control.

There is so much going on in our world right now. It is easy to get caught up in the things that are piling up around us. It is easy to let ourselves get caught up in the chaos that is swirling around us.

So! I was determined to get those things under control that were indeed in my control. As I began to pick up one thing after another and put it in its correct place, I found myself picking up an upside down post-it note holder.

As my eyes fell on the note that I had scribbled down sometime in the past, I stopped and received the message that God was speaking to me right now!

Brothers and Sisters, no matter what is happening in your life; no matter what chaos or disorder you are dealing with; hear God speaking!

Do not be afraid! He is with you! He will cause ALL things to work together for your good! And when all is said and done —HE will get the glory!! HALLELUJAH!!

I AM WITH YOU!

Beloved,
I am with you!
I hear your heart cry
I feel your confusion and pain
I see your sad countenance.
I am with you!
Lift up your head
Turn your face towards Me
Quiet your mind and emotions
And listen for My Voice.
I am with you!
Feel My heart
Feel My love
Know that I know you
From the inside out.
I am with you!
Will you search for Me?
Will you seek Me?
Will you trust Me?
Will you listen?
I am with you!
