It’s not over yet!

Verse of the Day

Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. [NIV]  Psalms 42:11

…….

The weather outside may be a reflection of how you’re feeling on the inside. Maybe you’re feeling out of sorts and still confused about your future. Maybe you’ve received some not so good news which has left you feeling a little low. Don’t let your soul be downcast, don’t let your spirit be disturbed. The Lord Jesus is still aware of all that is happening to you. And in time you’ll see His great plans for you come together to favour and bless you. He is more than able to work things out for you. Cheer up, it’s not all over yet! #Verseoftheday #Devotional #Downcast #Depression

A short-changed life!

Verse of the Day

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. [NKJV] Proverbs 23:7a

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword [NKJV] Hebrews 4:12a

……..

You cannot determine everything in your life with the way you feel, but with the way you think, with the way you speak. Speaking the Word of God activates your faith, changes your mind set and your thinking; and is that key in unlocking the doors to your miracles. Do you know that the word of God is living and filled with power? Do you know that? Do you know that when God’s word is activated in your life, His Word can fortify you against any giant, any obstacle, and any person that could ever stand in the way of your progress in life? Do you know that? Don’t you think it’s time you started empowering your mind with all that God says concerning you. Don’t you think it’s time you started speaking the words of God into existence into your life, into your life’s situation? Don’t short-change your destiny with your negative thinking; change it with the word of God. And with God on your side, you can never be defeated! #Verseoftheday #Devotional #Bible #JesusCan #Depression #Suicidal #Suicide #GivingUp #Encouragement #confused #confusion #Peace #breakthrough #hurt #pain #StinkingThinking #WordOfGod #ThinkGod #ThinkLife

It’s time you gave yourself a break!

Verse of the Day

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. [NKJV] John 14:27

…..

When you’ve done all you can; when you’ve tried all the possible ways to try to fix the pieces of your broken life; when you’ve worn yourself out with worry, frustration, anger and bitterness; when you’ve looked, searched, asked and can’t seem to find any help in the horizon; when your outlook is bleak and you’ve come to a point when you feel or think that all is lost, and your life is beyond redemption. Don’t you think it’s time you stopped with all the worrying and gave yourself a break, don’t you think it’s time you asked for a different kind of help. But you’re probably saying, I’ve tried and even exhausted every possible means and nothing happened, nothing changed? No one can help me! But I’m saying to you, Jesus can! And He wants to! Don’t you think it’s time you asked Jesus to step in, to do the impossible, and to do that which no man/woman can do for you? Don’t you think it’s time you got that break, that turn around in your life? Don’t you think it’s time to live the life He created you to live, and not the life you think you can or cannot get by with? Don’t you think it’s time you called on the master builder? Don’t you think it’s time you asked for His help? He says when He steps in, you will not only have what He made you to have, but you will finally have peace and rest of mind in this life. Don’t you think you need that peace? Don’t you think it’s time you gave yourself a break? It’s time you gave yourself a fighting chance to breakthrough into the life you were created to live. A life with Jesus, that is beyond pain and hurt, but all about His peace in the midst of all the confusions. #Verseoftheday #Devotional #JesusCan #Depression #Suicidal #Suicide #GivingUp #Encouragement #confused #confusion #Peace #breakthrough #hurt #pain

That’s Life!

Verse of the Day

You, LORD, hear the desire of the afflicted; you encourage them, and you listen to their cry, [NIV] Psalm 10:17

……

Life is a series of problems, it’s either you’re in one now, you’re just coming out of one, or you’re getting ready to go into another one. The reason for this is that God is more interested in your character than your comfort; God is more interested in making your life holy than He is in making your life happy. We can be reasonably happy here on earth, but that’s not the goal of life. The goal is to grow in character, in Christ likeness. No matter how good things are in your life, there is always something bad that needs to be worked on. And no matter how bad things are in your life, there is always something good you can thank God for. [Rick Warren]. So what if life, more particularly your life is filled with the high bits and the low bits, God say, throughout it all, He hears our desires, He encourages us through them all and listens to us when we call Him. So we are never abandoned. We are never alone. So it doesn’t matter what phase in life’s journeys you’ve found yourself in, remember He is always, forever by your side. You will get through them all, and well too if you don’t give up. #Verseoftheday #Devotional #Bible #PurposeOfLife #Depression #Faithful #God #NotGivingUp #Focused

It is Not Over Yet!

Verse of the Day

Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you. [NIV] Psalm 9:10

….

Never in the past, so far now and the years to come has God forsaken / or will He ever forsake those who faithfully cling on to him. It doesn’t matter what that trial may be, it doesn’t matter if you’re being hunted like a Jackal, it doesn’t matter if you feel abandoned; if you hold onto Him, He will surely come through for you. The Psalmist testified that since his youth and up until his old age, he has never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging for bread (Psalm 37:25). That’s a testimony worth remembering. The Lord has never forsaken anyone, and He’s not about to start now with you. So keep on holding and trusting Jesus. He will surely come through for you. #VerseoftheDay #EncourageSomeoneToday #Devotional #Bible #Jesus #Depression #Faithful #God
