Genesis to Revelation

and all the words in between...

Waiting on God

Waiting on God

While you are weighed down with things that burden your heart, wait on God.

Waiting on God isn’t always easy, especially when your burdens are heavy.

We know the promises of God and often want him to provide a “quick fix.”

Simply because he can.

But he doesn’t always.

What if the only thing standing between you and the relief of your burden is surrender?

What if we are so busy trying to “fix” things that we can’t see the solution God has already provided.

Surrender.

Place that problem that has been plaguing you and seems too hard on the altar of God’s grace, mercy and favor.

Just do it.

And experience the blessing of handing your burdens over to God and leaving them there.

Because each time you run back to the altar to take it back, God will give it to you.

Is that what you really want?

Be Prepared to Climb Every Mountain, Not All Will Be Moved

Some mountains are meant to be climbed.

Sometimes, as we are standing in front of a mountain and attempt to go around, we encounter another.

At some point to reach our destination either the mountain has to be moved or we need to climb it.

Of course, our first thought is that our faith can move the mountain.

What if God doesn’t want it moved?

What if he wants us to CLIMB the mountain?

Not every mountain will be cast into the sea.

Not every mountain is meant to be moved.

And we won’t have to climb EVERY mountain.

But, sometimes, we need to dig in and CLIMB!

Instead of asking HOW,  we constantly ask how long and why, wallowing in distress.

Genesis 40:14

If you know someone who is in a physical, emotional or spiritual prison, please share this message with them.

It’s not over. God’s not finished with you.

Joseph was imprisoned, albeit unjustly.

And although God had given him a dream early in his childhood that he would rule over many people, he lost hope.

Prison does that to you.

It causes you to focus on the four walls you find yourself confined to.

You can’t see past the moment of time you are living in.

Much like Joseph, during your confinement you are reminded of unfulfilled dreams in your life.

Isaiah 41:13

 

A special word for Single Parents:

You are not alone.

You are loved.

God loved you, yes YOU so much

that he caused the miraculous pregnancy

of his SON in the right woman

at the right time and in the right place

and permitted him to endure the harshest ridicule

and experience the cruelest of deaths.

Why Is It So Hard To Forgive Ourselves?

Why Is It So Hard To Forgive Ourselves?

Dear God: You are abundant in mercy, overflowing in grace, yet we mere mortals are foolish enough not to forgive ourselves.

Why is it so hard to forgive ourselves? Is it because no matter how open we are, something is always beneath “our truth?”

No matter what we have done, there is forgiveness. Only one thing bars us from that gift: US.

Jesus commanded that we forgive others in order that we may receive forgiveness. Is that the source of unresolved self-forgiveness? Perhaps.

In order to forgive ourselves, we must first get the root of our actions that require forgiveness. Many blame those actions on others.

For many years I made excuses for my bad behaviors. I was angry. And rightly so. I was disowned, abused, blah, blah, blah.

Galatians 6:7

Galatians 6:7

You can’t outsmart God.

Have you ever desired to have people plant into your life?

Have you ever wondered why it seems that no one sows seed into you?

Let’s look at the natural cycle of seed.

We always get seed from a source.  Apple seeds come from apples.

You must first have a source fruit in order to obtain seed.

Once you have seed, you must then find fertile ground.

Jeremiah 29:11

Jeremiah 29:11

What are your plans?

God has plans for you to enjoy success.

Do you know what his plan for you is?

If you are planning your life on a daily basis

without tapping into God’s plan for you,

you are depriving yourself of the best chance for success.

Hebrews 11:1

Hebrews 11:1

What is faith?

It is trusting God, therefore trusting the outcome.

In Hebrews 11, we read examples of faith.

They all have one thing in common:

Each of these people “pleased God.”

How do we please God and thereby exercise faith?

Obedience to his express purpose and plan for our lives.

Each person mentioned as a faith trailblazer knew God.

You cannot trust someone you do not know.

Do you know God well enough to trust him?

1 Samuel 10:1

1 Samuel 10:1

Let’s talk about anointing, shall we?

It was never God’s desire to have a man serve as King over his people.

However, the hard headed and hard hearted nation of Israel

was determined to have just that and God permitted it.

So he told the Prophet Samuel to anoint Saul.

We mistakenly think that when God anoints a person to do a thing

their entire existence becomes anointed.

But that’s not what the Bible says.

Here are a 10 facts about Saul’s anointing:

Isaiah 55:11

Isaiah 55:11

How do we know if we have heard a “word” from God?

1) It accomplishes what HE desires.

2). It achieves the purpose for which HE sent it.

Where does the scripture say anything about US?

It doesn’t.
