Be silent..wait patiently..in His time you will receive what He has prepared for you!


 

There is nothing good about us apart from the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 
Anything good that we are or hope to be or anything we hope to receive is only through Him. 
Let us wait on Him and for Him to meet our needs and give us the desires of our hearts according to Hi will! 
His timings are perfect.
Be blessed,
Julia

Our final destination…


 
Hi…
~~If we know Jesus as our Savior we also know we on a journey, walking a narrow path and one day will stand before Abba Father in Heaven.
¸.♥John 14:6 “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
~~As long as we live here we are to serve our Lord and use our talents for His Glory.
~~Sometimes we look back at wasted opportunities to serve God.
Instead of looking back, we can start right now to live as Christ wants us to live.
~Let’s not waste our time in useless pleasures.
~~When we come to the final hour and stand face to face with God, we will regret for so many hours wasted in self gratification.
~~Let’s faithfully serve our Lord.
¸.♥1 Corinthians 15:58 “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”
~~Yahweh is our judge, He is our rewarder and He also fights our battles, take care of our every need and concern when we get busy serving Him.
~~Our destination is Heaven, we are just pilgrims here on earth. Let’s fix our eyes on our Savior and follow Him.
Be blessed..

Let’s not be double minded….


James 1:6-8
“But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7 That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord;
8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does.”
Hi…
Thank you Lord for this day.
This is the day that the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.
As we begin this day may the Lord grant us wisdom and understanding to make and take decisions that are sure and right.
Let us not be double minded in our ways.
Let’s be sure about what we believe, say and do.
Let us be bold and strong and not be afraid to speak up to be heard against issues that are not right.
When we know something is right or wrong may the Lord give us boldness to speak for or against it. Let’s make sure of our standing and not be double minded and compromise. There’s nothing to be afraid of because the Great “I AM” is with us.
Joshua 1:9
9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
May Abba Father help us to be true in all we do and say.
May He have His way and will in our lives.
Have a blessed day,
Julia

THE NATIONS FOR YOUR INHERITANCE~by: Gwen.R.Shaw


THE NATIONS FOR YOUR INHERITANCE

Scripture Reading –
 
 Psalm 2:1-8 “Ask of me and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.”
( Psalm 2:8)
 

That is My truth to you. All you need to do in order to be mighty in the nations, is to “ask Me.”
But first you need a vision and a desire for the nations. Many of My children are very self-centered. They have no burden nor concern, nor love, nor interest in the nations. They live their lives around themselves and their immediate families.

But if you will be My true follower, you will see your neighbor through My eyes, and you will take pleasure in learning to know your generation, even though it is of another color or creed .
I love the nations. I put the bounds around them.

All the nations come from their forefather Noah (Genesis 10:32). And so, because Noah is your forefather also, you are related to all the nations. Abraham, who is your spiritual father, is the father of many nations (Genesis 17:4,5). So you are related also to many nations by the Spirit.
This is the day when no nations are afar off. Any one can be reached in a few hours. Every nation affects another nation. Something happening in the most remote nation will affect many lives in many nations in a few hours. Even small nations can shake kingdoms, e.g., Israel, Lebanon, Guyana, Nicaragua, Cuba, Vietnam, etc.

Lift up your eyes upon the nations. The treasures of Heaven are the beautiful people of the nations. I want to bring them in before the dreadful day of the outpouring of My wrath. Some of these small nations will cease to exist after the judgment of My wrath, as recorded in the Book of Revelation. So go to them now. Pray for them now. Ask Me to give you the treasures of the nations.

They can be your possessions – if you so desire.

The nations are as the colors of the rainbow. Claim them as your own. Be adorn ed by the gemstones of the nations. You can have all that your heart desires: the mountains of Switzerland, the canals of Holland, thee Great Wall of China, the deserts of the Sahara, the alabaster cities of America, the paddy-fields of Taiwan, the oil wells of Arabia, the sheep folds of New Zealand, the coal mines of Wales, the castles of England, the fashion houses of France, the gemstones of India, the cattle ranches of Argentine and the gold of South Africa.

It’s all yours! Ask of Me, and I will give you the utter most parts of the earth for your possessions, and you will truly have a reason to praise Me.

Do we YEARN for God?” BY: Blake Hamon


 
Do we YEARN for God?”
BY: Blake Hamon
I’ve been paying a lot of attention to the Psalms, and as I do I attempt to think as David thought. “As a deer pant and thirsts for streams of water, so my soul longs for you O God. My soul thirsts for God. The living God. When can I go and meet with God? (Psalms 42:1-2)”
I don’t question for a moment that we all love to enter into the presence of God with passionate worship…..but do we yearn for Him? Are we ok with not taking time out of our day to sit down with the living God? Are we truly ok with waiting until a Sunday morning or Wednesday night to step into His presence? I’m not talking about the moments when you’re day has lacked any and all enjoyable moments and you hear that perfect song that just warms your heart as you lift up your hands in worship and thank God!
One thing I’ve come to realize during the fast is this:God knows no past, or present circumstance. That’s not implying that those circumstances are non-existent, it merely implies that no circumstance will have a hindrance on the praise I give my God. The increase/decrease of the intensity or severity of our circumstances should have no affect to the intensity of our worship unto God.
I believe a wonderful example of that type of yearning and worship is displayed in Job 1:20-21:
At this, Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground in worship and said: “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; may the name of the LORD be praised.
Do we yearn for God?
My prayer not only for myself, but for you as well, is that we would develop a craving for God beyond what we thought was possible; that our hearts would ache until we have encountered God….that in the midst of difficult times – whether big or small – our yearning for Almighty God would stir up a zeal and passion that would cause us to cry out in utter worship at all times – regardless of our circumstances.
God give us a yearning for you. Burn within us a passion that can never be subsided. God, that we would not become complacent or content in our relationship with you, but that ever day we would seek to chase after you with more passion and zeal than the day before. Let our yearning for you overflow out of our hearts and into the lives of others.

“Yearn” by Shane & Shane Lyrics
Holy design 
This place in time 
That I might seek and find my God 
My God
Lord, I want to yearn for You 
I want to burn with passion 
Over You and only You 
Lord, I want to yearn
Your joy is mine 
Yet why am I fine 
With all my singing and bringing grain 
In light of Him
Oh You give life and breath 
Through Him You give all things 
In Him we live and move 
That’s why I sing 
Acts 17:25-28, Hebrews 12:28-29

Has someone interrupted your plans?


Proverbs 19:21 Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails. 
Hi…
Has someone or something interrupted your plans?
Trust God!
May be you were planning on taking up a new job, visiting a new place or planning to do something but suddenly someone may come by and upset our plans or for some reasons your plans failed.
Don’t panic..but TRUST GOD
When plans are changed, He has a better way to accomplish HIS WILL in your life.
God knows what’s best for you..
Jeremiah 29:11,”For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Though right now you don’t see anything clear just give your hand in your Heavenly Father’s hands & let Him lead you one step at a time.
Just continue to hope and trust in God to give you the best and He will surely reveal the plan HE has for you.
 Proverbs 23:18 There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.
