Although the world seems to be filled with the unknown and the necessity to continually pray for one person or another then for myself, I know that regardless of the situation, you are still God.
You are still the God who spoke the world into existence, who breathed life into man then allowed man to reign.
You are still the God who parted the Red Sea, who made the wet ground dry and led the way through the waters.
You are still the God who tamed the lions, who sat with Daniel through the night.
You are still the God who softened the heart of a king, who walked with Esther into the throne room.

I rid myself of all but you.
You are the only thing that can sustain me in this time of desperation and deep need.
I need you to flow through me, consume every bit of me and continually be with me.
I need to be filled from the bottom to the brim with you and you alone.
As the world turns from you I want to continually turn towards you, wherever you may be leading me.
I don’t care how unpopular it may be, I will always choose you. I don’t care how much the world belittles me, I will always choose you.

The Lord is moving.
We may not always be able to see it, feel it, touch it, but He is on the move. God is often doing things behind the scenes that sometimes takes weeks, months, years to come to fruition, but all along, He is moving. Continue reading “He Is Moving”
There are times in my life when I push against the Lord, when I become so frustrated with what is going on around me that I forget the power that is within me. I allow the world to quiet God’s voice and cloud my vision from seeing the Truth.
He has never failed me, yet sometimes I find myself still wondering if whatever current battle I’m in is the one I will lose, the time when my God just doesn’t step in.
This thought process does nothing but harm me and hinder me from doing what I am called to do. If He has never failed me, why would He start now? Continue reading “In The Darkness”
Over the past several days it’s been on my heart to pray against the spirit of resistance. I’m not only talking about the political resistance we see marching on Washington, although that is part of it, I’m primarily feeling a need to pray against the spiritual resistance that’s been infiltrating our daily lives. Continue reading “Resistance”
What is our initial reaction to bad news? Is it terror? Is it anxiety, worry, stress? If we call ourselves Christians and we say we fully trust in the Lord, then when the world bangs on our door, should we, for even a second, worry about what is on the other side? Continue reading “Why Are We Worrying?”
Several days ago, the Lord convicted me that the problem He and I were having (there was something like a wedge in our relationship) was that I wasn’t trusting Him, fully and completely.
Every time I complained, I wasn’t trusting Him.
Every time I asked Him “why”, I wasn’t trusting Him.
Every time I came to Him and begged; I wasn’t trusting Him.
I have felt like Thomas, needing to see the hands and the feet to believe, but little did I know that to continually need to see the proof in my timeframe was competing with my faith, the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not yet seen (Hebrews 11:1). The Lord told me that to constantly question the promises He has already told us in His Word, which we so often do as humans, is a form of disbelief.
I believe God’s people have been plagued by distrust, me being one of them. Continue reading “With All Thine Heart”
