Too Focused to Fail #nodefeat

Listen, People of God! This life is difficult. Facing the unknown is hard, enough. We must hold, fast, to our faith and believe that God didn’t bring us this far to leave us! God is more present, NOW, than ever before!

  1. Focus on Facts – God is Here! God will deliver! God has made a way, before! God has always provided me what I needed! God has always opened doors and made paths for me!
  2. Failure is not in my vocabulary. It’s hard, I admit. But God fights for me! He won’t let me fall! What is hard for man IS NOT Hard for Our God! What seems impossible is made POSSIBLE through Christ!
  3. Find your peace. Let the Lord give you peace in this season! Allow God to be who He is and do what He does, best!
  4. Fix Your Mind. Don’t let hardships deter you but lift up your head, be lifted up! Know that it will all be okay. It will work for your good. Why? Because you love God and have been CALLED to do His purpose. Stop worrying! Hand it over to God.

Philippians 3:14 The Message

Focused on the Goal

12-14 I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back.

Waiting While in the Waiting Room: Excising in Expectation of the Manifestation #expectation

God is moving things around for our benefit. It may not seem that way, considering that you’ve been waiting for quite some time. There are some things that you need God to do for you but you’re in the way! What do I mean?

The enemy sets up distractions. A distraction may be that you have a bill that needs paid, your children are out of control, you just lost your job or people are acting like their against you. Whatever the enemy can do to cause your eyes to shift from God, that, he will do.

There’s work to be done while you’re waiting on God to work wonders in your life! We must hold on to our faith and God’s promises while in the waiting room.

What’s the “work? While in the waiting room, we should be praying, praising, worshiping, fasting, and reading God’s Word.

It’s not time to complain. It’s time for thanksgiving. Remember, we must be Spiritually fit, that is, have a mindset of expectation and of willingness to do Our Father’s Will, even while waiting in the waiting room.

Today’s Scriptures:

Isaiah 26:3 NLT | New Living Translation

You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!

1 Thessalonians 5:18 KJV | King James Version

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Progress Through Problems #change #focus #shift #sight

When will I see that my progress, through my problems, is more beneficial than looking, focusing, only on those things that are trying, that hurt, and are hard to face?  Where do I look? Where do I go?

So many times, our problems seem impossible to change, to ever get better.  So many things are happening around us.  So much seems to get in our way, distracting us, blocking us, so that we can’t see that God is there.  There are times when situations are overwhelming and consuming. 

But there is God! 

God has been there, with you, with us, the whole time.  Suffering is a part of life.  Jesus, The Christ, suffered, greatly.  Why would it be different for us? What’s next? When will it change?

“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” – Psalm 91:1 KJV

I (we) shall look towards God, who is my (our) Help! I (we) must shift focus towards Heaven and away from things that are attacking our Spiritual being.  We wrestle against spirits, confusion, things earthly and things in the Spirit realm. 

Let’s pray:

Dear God, Our Father.  We come to say thank You for everything.  Thank You for the good, and thank You for the bad.  Lord, we admit to You that it is hard to see success when faced with situations that have failed, for now.  Help us to see that You, oh God, direct us.  You, oh God, are our shelter, our protection. 

Lord, we look to You for help.  Rescue us. Deliver us. Set us free. Help us to see as You see.  Lord, You’re bigger than our problems.  Lord, You’re bigger than our suffering.  Help us to endure until the end.  Help us to focus on the positive and look for You as our strength, our Way-Maker. 

God, You designed us to prosper, to succeed! There is no failure in You! This prayer is signed, sealed, and delivered, to You, through Jesus The Christ, it is well with our soul, Amen.

Remember: The enemy is not going down without a fight! We are soldiers.  We have to fight mentally, emotionally, and Spiritually.  We must know The Word of God to use as a weapon, a shield.  We must pray and praise.  Finally, we must worship God for who He is!

Today’s Scriptures:

2 Timothy 2:3-4 NKJV | New King James Version

3 You therefore must endure[a] hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. 4 No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier.

Ephesians 6:12 KJV |King James Version

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Psalm 121:1-2, 3,5,7 NIV | New International Version

1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from? 2 My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. 3 He will not let your foot slip— he who watches over you will not slumber; 5 The Lord watches over you— the Lord is your shade at your right hand; 7 The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life; 8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.

Miracles Moving: Morning & Midnight

I hear The Lord saying that He will be present, in the morning, and at Midnight.  Everything you need, go to Him in prayer. Let God know what you desire.

Some of us have been waiting for The Lord to answer and His response is

“Obey Me!” “I’ll do it for you!”

Prayer: God, we need Your favor to saturate our lives. God, we need You to make yourself known, to us! So many have toiled and cried, for a while; this is due to heartbreak, depression, stress and anxiety, worrying about what they’re going to do to make ends meet.  But, YOU, oh God, can do anything! There’s no limit to You!  Revive us, again! Renew us, again! Restore us, again! Make a way for us, again! God, in the morning and at midnight, we stop to thank You!  We cry out to Our Father, Our Jehovah Jireh! Your move, oh God, is coming! Help us to trust You! This prayer is signed, sealed, and delivered, to You, through Jesus The Christ, Amen.

Disclaimer: Yes, I am well aware that our God is omnipresent! The Word that He gave me for His (specific) people has a specific time (morning and Midnight). If you believe, do this one thing: give Him praise and pray, from your heart, to God, in the morning and at Midnight, for the rest of the week! If you’re sincere, watch God move miracles into position for you!

I get up in the middle of the night to thank you;
your decisions are so right, so true—I can’t wait till morning!

God’s GRACE Gift #grace

People of God, if we are truly real and honest with God, we will come to the conclusion that we have not paid for all of our sins that we do, against Him.

Today is a day to thank God for His Grace.  I’ve found His grace is sufficient; it’s all I need.  It is by grace that we are saved!

EXERCISE: BIBLE – find a scripture on GRACE and repost!

Let’s remember that GRACE is what’s keeping us; God doesn’t always give us, as we deserve! God provides us FAVOR.

My Prayer: Oh Lord, Our God, I know that I have sinned before you.  I know that there are times when I do my own thing and don’t realize that damage it could do. God, I come before your Throne of Grace to say thank you.  God, I appreciate Your goodness and Your loving-kindness towards me! God, please forgive me and help me to walk, in Your way. Help me to be led by Your Spirit.  This prayer is signed, sealed, and delivered, to You, through Jesus The Christ, Amen.

Today’s Scripture:

Psalm 103:8-12 NIV | New International Version

8 The Lord is compassionate and gracious,
slow to anger, abounding in love.
9 He will not always accuse,
nor will he harbor his anger forever;
10 he does not treat us as our sins deserve
or repay us according to our iniquities.
11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his love for those who fear him;
12 as far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
