Verse of the Day
He pulled me out of a horrible pit, out of the mud and clay. He set my feet on a rock and made my steps secure. [GWT] Psalm 40:2
I’m not sure if you know this, but whatever it is you’ve been crying unto the Lord for, God is hearing it all, so you better watch out for what He’s about to do in your life next. The word of the Lord tells us that, that desolate pit, that pit of despair, hopelessness, confusion, misery, destruction that have been your home all this while; that stigma of shame, whatever it is that has made your life dirty, colourless, the Lord will bring you out of them, and set you on an established/solid place of rest – making sure your steps in Him are now made secure. Isn’t that just wonderful! So dry your tears now, there’s going to be a movement in your life; there’s going to be a new change of garments, and it’s going to forever lift you and beautify your life now and forevermore in Jesus name. Amen. Praise be the name of the Lord. #Verseoftheday #Bible #Devotional #Jesus.
Ask me, and I will give you the nations as your inheritance and the ends of the earth as your own possession. [GWT] Psalm 2:8
I’m sure there were times when you were younger than you are now, when you went to see your dad about getting you “must have” gifts 🙂 And of course your dad being your hero, if it was something he could do, within his power, he did just that. Of course if you had someone like my dad, you probably get whatever you asked for up until the age of 7-8 and after that you had to come up with a reason, a dissertation / thesis of some sort why what you wanted was important, what the benefit of having it would make in your life and what daddy would get in return.. e.g., I promise to pass my exams, brush my teeth, not fight with U-g-o…and so forth… But I digress 🙂 Love my dad 😀
But our Father in heaven is saying to us here, to ask HIM? Are there things plaguing your mind that you would like a rest from or questions about our God our Father which you would like to know? Ask HIM! Are there uncertainties, mysteries, lack of clarity/vision which you would like to get a hold of? Ask God! Is there some nagging questions keeping you awake at night which no one has been able to help you with? Ask the Lord! He’s not like some or most fathers, whose powers are limited, who maybe put conditions on their love/gift giving, or who maybe were nowhere to be found or seen when you needed them the most. El Roi, our Father who is Strong and sees everything that we do, has ALL the answers. He is a loving and doting Father, whose only care in the world is YOU. Go to Him and see if He is not able to come through for you. He is Jehovah Sabaoth, whose power is without ending, and His love for you has no limit or condition. Ask of Him, speak to Him, He hears, and He will answer you.
As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things. [NIV] Ecclesiastes 11:5
There’s no point in trying to understand what might be happening around you, or rather why certain things happen/are happening to you, such as the momentary setback, the great deal of work/goals that still need to be attained. But rather focus on the fact that God the maker of all things, whose ways can never be understood, has told you He has great thoughts/plans for you, that means you do have a good and glorious future and everything will work out GREAT. Whatever you may be going through is only a glitch in God’s plan for you, but it won’t stop you from getting to your glorious destiny. You were created for a good purpose and that’s all that matters!
