When you are going through your rough and tough times, be still and know in your heart, mind, body and Spirit that He is God. He wants you to be still and not act in the flesh so that He can do His work in you, through you and for you for HIS name to be exalted in heaven and on Earth. Don’t go looking for something that you want. Thank Him and let Him bestow it upon you. Remember, wants and needs are two different things. Have you ever thought of what a big responsibility that is, to just be still and let Him be, for His glory?
From Strength to Strength
In the Psalms it says “Blessed are those whose strength is in You… They go from strength to strength till each appears before God in Zion.” If we go from strength to strength, this means we must constantly be challenged and changed to grow and gain our strength. Be blessed by allowing God’s supernatural growth to happen in your life. He has already equipped you with all you need – and that includes all the strength you need.
Here is a promise to claim in Psalm 84: “Look with favour on your anointed one.” That’s you and me. It also says “For the Lord is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favour and honour; no good thing does he withhold FROM THOSE WHOSE WALK IS BLAMELESS. Lord Almighty, blessed is the one WHO TRUSTS IN YOU.” When was the last time you asked God to fulfill these promises in your life, while you walk blamelessly towards Him and trust Him? Ask and it will be given unto you.
Psalm 1: Blessed is the one who does not walk in the step of the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers. It also says the one who meditates on his law (Word) day and night WHATEVER THEY DO PROSPERS. Amen? With whom are you walking and what are you meditating on?
What season are you in?
What season are you in? So many people feel as if they are just sowing, sowing, sowing. Are you sowing what is required of you? The great news is, you cannot reap, if you do not sow! Sow from the Spirit, sow cheerfully, even it is your last thing, your last dollar and even if it feels like your last ounce of spiritual energy! Without it, you have nothing coming to you. Think of what you have asked of God and know that He is preparing you to be able to receive what you’ve asked of Him.
Don’t forget your heavenly angels
Finally, don’t forget your heavenly angels, in Psalm 91: He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. (Here is an unusual promise, which shows the power that God has given you): You WILL tread on the lion and cobra; you WILL trample the great lion and the serpent. Don’t forget to ask for your angels to be with you and always around you every day of your life. Yes, He will send His angels concerning you, but put them to work. They are there to help and protect you along the way.
In Jesus’ precious name, we thank you for your Word, Heavenly Father. Thank you for fulfilling these promises in our lives and even more promises that come from You which we are not yet aware of. Please make them come to pass for us, starting now and forever more, with and through Jesus Christ. In His name we pray. Amen.
