With All Thine Heart

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”

New Day

Right now, in this moment where things are quiet and I have time to reflect upon who my God is, I feel confident that all will be okay. I have found myself bogged down with so many concerns over the past several months: concerns for my Country, the Remnant, the overall future of the Church.

But, right now, there is something within me that simply knows, believes, that we, you and I and everyone else that is a part of the Remnant, will get through this trying time and end up exactly where God wants us.

In the physical, none of this makes sense, all seems murky and confusing, but in the Spiritual we are making our way through the night towards the light of a New Day. Continue reading “New Day”

All Of Me

Without you, my world stands still.

If I don’t have you, I’m surrounded by darkness.

When I try to make it on my own, I end up lost, broken and hopeless.

You give me the confidence I need to step forward, the strength I crave to take a chance, the boldness I can’t live without if I’m to do what you’re calling me to do. Continue reading “All Of Me”

Enough

Your love consumes me, from the crown of my head to the souls of my feet. It is all around me in a physical way, like I’m in a room filled with breathable water. It makes me strong, capable and able. No, I do not always feel those things, but I know those things are with me, around me and in me.

You make me enough, you make me brave and bold. You make me beautiful and brilliant.

Your love pushes out all the doubts the world bombards me with and replaces them with abilities I didn’t know I had. Continue reading “Enough”

Your God

What has God told you, when you shut out the world and allow time for just the two of you?

What has God said to you, when you are walking through a battle and He gives you a word to lighten your spirit?

What has God promised you, when it seems as if the night is closing in but then His voice pierces through the darkness?

Continue reading “Your God”

Overcome

What do I have need of that God cannot provide? What battle could I face that God could not win? What enemy could come against me that God could not defeat? Is there a mountain too high for Him to climb? Is there an ocean too deep for Him to swim? Is there a valley too wide for Him to cross? Is there anything too great or mighty for my God, for your God? Continue reading “Overcome”

Powerful Play

Have you ever felt like a pawn on a chess board, an insignificant participant in some sort of game? You want to be a major player, to have a monumental role, title, part, to be an important character in this grand game, yet you feel as miniscule and unable to make an impact as just a regular little pawn on a giant board.

While praying for the Remnant the other day I saw a chess board. There were kings, queens, knights, rooks, bishops, the players we all see when we think of a winning game, but there were also many, many pawns. The Lord said to me,

I am strategically placing my pawns in positions of power

I knew in that moment that there was going to be a time when all the pawns moved together to take control of the board that seems lost, to turn the tide on the enemy and, together, make a dominating play. Continue reading “Powerful Play”

Tamed By The Master

I thought I was wild and running free, yet I was actually controlled by my own emotions and constrained by the whims and ways of the world around me. I thought I was uninhibited and unharnessed until I was tamed by the Master, for only in His taming could He show me how restrained I really was. My mind was a victim to the happiness the world said I should or should not feel. My heart was broken by those who had no right to hold it. My emotions were a roller coaster, up one day then plummeting the next. What I thought was freedom was never really free at all. Continue reading “Tamed By The Master”

Stay With Me

There is only one concern I have in this life. It doesn’t scare me to walk into the unknown, surrounded by people I’ve never met or to be placed into a position I don’t fully understand. I don’t spend my time worrying about things of that nature, but there is a single thought I can’t seem to shake, one thought that consumes me beyond my ability to run away from…what if I lose “THIS”?

This, as in this closeness I have to my Father, this overwhelming and all-consuming love for Him, need to be with Him, desire to be continuously surrounded by Him. I can’t lose Him, I can’t afford to.

God’s People

The Lord did not allow David to fail, no matter how many times Saul tried to kill him or how many battles he fought, David was victorious because he was God’s man.

The Lord did not allow Esther to fail, regardless of the attacks on her uncle’s life or the fact she could have died when she went before the King, she was God’s woman.

I Believe

I have to believe that you are who the Word says you are, for, if I don’t, then what do I believe in? If you didn’t send Jesus, then I, we, have no Savior. If you don’t heal, then there is no hope for a miracle. If you don’t deliver, then all we can do is fall. If you don’t listen to us, then we are all just talking in an empty room.
