Sweet Promises

Little Thoughts For Big Days

So ~ what about those promises from God? Those sweet treasures, whispered into your ear, richer than riches themselves and going deeper into the soul than the deepest depths of the deepest sea! They’ve come to you at a low point ~ at some moment when God spoke directly to your heart, confirming His presence, His ability, His care, His compassion, His Power, His magnitude, His grace, His Healing, His restoration, and His mercy. The moment of promise when the scars in His hands sealed the hope in our heart. Hang on to them and don’t let ’em fade into the darkness or be tossed about by violent life storms! He speaks even here ~ above the jostling winds and waves, and beckons us to stand tall and firm in the faith before Him ~ with Him ~ focused on Him, because in His serene presence is peace ~ just what you need and just what you need now!!

“The Lord is faithful to all His promises and loving towards all He has made. The Lord upholds all those who fall and lifts us all who are bowed down.. The eyes of all look to You, and You give them their food at the proper time.. You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing.”
Psalm 145: 13b, 14, 15, 16

In The Shadows

Little Thoughts For Big Days
Little Thoughts For Big Days

So despair has left you bent and broken, shattered and frazzled? No escape? What now? Where do you turn in your moment of it? In the long hours of it? In the days, the weeks, and the months of it? Maybe the years of it’s never ending chaotic twists and turns when it relentlessly hunts you down to tear you apart much like a wild animal stalks it’s prey? The heavy heart it carries makes it so difficult to move forward ~ to even take a small step let alone make it to some place of destination. Maybe the despair is depression itself that has you caught in it’s web, entrapped you in it’s sticky, circle of poison, relentless to let you go! Yes ~ for sure ~ What now? Sight and insight is limited with high walls ~ dark and cold! Choices are difficult! Thinking is impossible! Who can see through it?

Well, right there, and right now, know that you are loved by a God who is right there and right now beside you, ready to shelter you under His wing of protection and love you just for who you are, in that total mess and heap of confusion that you feel inside. He’s ready to carry you when you can’t move and bless you through the good and bad. He’s ready to grace you over the next step, the next hurdle, and through the deepest and steepest of valleys ~ just because He cares! When you can’t see past the shadows ~ even your own shadow, trust Him there ~ in the dark, for the sun shines and the Son shines bright in the shadows! Grasp the hem of His garment of love there even when it’s not felt nor understood ~ because it never will be understood. It goes beyond anything that we can imagine! It’s just the way God is and it’s His perfect presence there now ~ for you!

Ephesians 3:17-20
And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts as you trust in Him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of God’s marvelous love. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love really is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is so great you will never fully understand it. Then you will be filled with the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able through His power to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think

Little Thoughts For Big Days

So today ~ this week, If and when insulted, bless back. When authority mistreats you, bless back. for in so doing you will be setting yourself up for blessing! We squander so much blessing with our need to have the last word, defend our rights or get even and when we defend ourselves we set our accuser up as our judge so, stay calm, be truthful and handle unfair treatment God’s way! Fade into the background and Let Him be your defense. He’s our Ancient Of Days and has been around since the beginning of time. He knows the end from the beginning and nothing slips by Him. He got your case from the inside out and He knows how to help you win it. So ~ toss your battle axe aside and put on your spiritual armor for you’re going to need it! Step out in faith protecting your mind with the powerful Sword of the Spirit, God’s Word ~ and do battle with love and peace ~ the believers most powerful weapons!

Ephesians 6: 10 -18
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

So today, Wait “On” the Lord. Trust “In” the Lord, and Persevere “With” the Lord. It’s in Him that we find our salvation, our rest, our strength, our hope, our comfort and our peace. There is no other one ~ and no other way to make this journey of life work. It’s tough out there, in the work a day world, in the financial world and relationships? Well, forgiveness is just crucial, but difficult. The worlds in a mess and who knows what the government is up to? Persecution seems on the rise and you? ~ Well, you’ve just been side swiped again and just after you got back up on your feet from the last knock. Why is life so hard sometimes? Well, we aren’t promised the moon, but we are promised abundant life as we walk with God, living by His principles and we are promised Eternal Life if we believe in Him, standing firm in our faith through the thick and the thin. The path is narrow but do-able if we keep our focus on God’s way and our hand in His. He guides, He leads, He satisfies! So whatever your journey today ~ Wait ON, Trust IN, and Persevere WITH the Sovereign God in control of it all. Wow, what a privilege to be right here right now and what an amazing power is at our disposal through our God!

2 Chronicles 20:6 “O Lord, God of our fathers, are you not God in heaven? You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. In your hand are power and might, so that none is able to withstand you.”

Zechariah 4:6 “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of hosts.”
