In the secret of my closet I met and poured out my soul to Him. My burdens were heavy; my heart was broken and the pressure of life seemed to drag me to the ground. As I knelt and prayed, with tears streaming down my face, I realized that my God was just a breath away. I cried, LORD, help me, and suddenly! I felt the change, a light flashed across my face, and then I heard a sweet voice whispered, I have heard your cry, it is well. God understands your tears, your sighs, and your groans. Just talk to Him anytime, anywhere, He is your father.
“I called upon the Lord in distress: the Lord answered me, and set me in a large place.” (Psalm 118:5)
May the Heaven open unto you and grant you special blessings.
The pasture is always green when God is leading. You may not see the fatness of the land or the blessings He has in store, but if you trust His guiding hands, you will never have a lack. Remember, He is the way, the Truth and the Life, so don’t lose hope, just follow His leading. You are His sheep and He will lead you into green pastures where you will experience the abundance of His blessings.
“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters”. (Psalm 23:1)
Be filled with His blessings!
One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in his temple.
For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord.
David expressed his love for the LORD by longing to dwell in His house. He wanted to abide there forever and to enjoy His beauty and to seek Him there in the temple. For us to see or to enjoy the beauty of the LORD, we must dwell in His house for He will only reveal or manifest His glory to those who are in a relationship with Him. Beauty means “loveliness, splendor, grace and favor.” We saw His loveliness and his divine character as it was manifested in the tabernacle and in the temple. Ah! There was the manifestation of the character of God, His Glory! Are you longing to be there? Come; let’s take residence in His house.
God be with you and grant you strength for the day.
I ask the question, “Do flowers ever feel lonely or gloomy? Do they ever feel the pain that life brings?” Well, we may never know, because in the cold or heat of the day, they display such strength and beauty and with sweet aroma fulfilling their Master’s will. Dear, friends, whenever you feel lonely or gloomy, just look at the flowers; pick one, smell it! Their beauty and sweet perfume will brighten your day. Don’t look at the thorns; look at the flowers! Don’t look at the lonesomeness; look at the peace that God gives! Remember, you will never gain victory unless there is a fight, and you will never be defeated until you have given-up. The trials of our lives are not navigated by our inability to fight; they only come to steer us into a new direction and to give us a brighter beginning.
May the peace of God be with you
Your trials may seem long and painful as if there is no end. Don’t give up! They will come to an end. As the winter passes and the freshness of spring appears; your soul will be restored again. Dear friends, “Do you know that your trials come to prune you?” Nevertheless, your soul can be replenished through prayer and fasting. So smile, it will be springtime again in your life!
May God keep you in His divine presence and strengthen you.
Your life is not steered by your own imagination or your own ability. It is navigated by God. He determines your life and destiny. In your search for adventures, seek Him first. Let His will be accomplished in your life. And, remember, the decisions that you make today will determine your outcome for tomorrow. If you go against God’s will in your pursuits you will not be blessed. So, allow Him to steer you back and your adventures of life will be successful.
God bless you as you seek His divine will for your life.
Your altitude is too low! God has given you the ability to soar higher! Don’t look at the clouds; look over them. You can make it! God is your strength and He’ll see you through. So gain altitude! Don’t settle for less, God is with you!
“It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect”.
Be blessed, you are in God’s hands
The mountain may seem hard to climb and your feet may stumble along the journey. You may even feel like you cannot make it, but hold on, don’t give up! Within you lie great strength and His sweet voice will always whisper, “You can make it for I am with you”. “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness”.
Be blessed, He’ll never leave you nor forsake you.
God’s creations are beautiful! When one look at the stately mountains and the luscious valleys, and pass by the beautiful flowers arrayed in perfect elegance you can’t help but notice that their beauty reflects a sparkle of the divine touch of the Master’s hands. In spite of their beauty, none would be complete until He created a beautiful person like you to enjoy them.
You are wonderful. Do not let the trials of the day get you down. Reflect on the gem in you that God has created and never cease to say, “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well”
God bless you.
