When You Aren’t Enough

So when what you have isn’t enough, God’s grace is. It will cover all we don’t have, and all we can’t do. It will cover all we don’t have control over, and all that seems out of whack. His favour rests upon us regardless of who we are, where we’ve been or what we’ve done. His love goes beyond the imaginable and unimaginable and reaches into the realms of the impossible to share a love so unconditional, so solid, so transforming and so incomprehensible that we sit in awe and wonder- ment of a God who can care so deeply for our needs. Yeah, even in your failure He’s there ready to lift, heal, restore and win! His mercy, so vast and so beyond where we are, and His thoughts of us so brilliant and astounding, we can never pay it back in any of our human attempts. So don’t try! In obedience, just accept His gift of favour upon your life right here, right now, and find HIs richest and joyful blessing on your beautiful soul in your needy moment of “Not enough.”

2 Corinthians 12: 8,9,10
Concerning this I implored the Lord three times that it might leave me. And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.

Daniel 10:19
“Do not be afraid, you who are highly esteemed,” he said. “Peace! Be strong now; be strong.” When he spoke to me, I was strengthened and said, “Speak, my lord, since you have given me strength.”

A New Thing

A new thing?  How about emerging with wings?
A new thing? How about emerging with wings?

“Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43: 19

Don’t you love it; this wonderful promise from the Lord your Holy One, Israel’s Creator and King ~ Verse 15? “I am the Lord who opened a way through the waters, making a dry path through the sea….but forget all that ~ it is nothing compared to what I am going to do. For I am about to do something new. See I have already begun, do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.”
An awesome promise from the Lord our God for us right now in this moment, this day, this month, this year. I especially like the part about the “New thing.” Don’t you? Whatever God has done in the past that rocked your world and turned it upside down with wonder and miracles and healing, is nothing compared to what He’s about to do, can do, and will do, if we just ask with a believing heart.

So beautiful soul ~ needing something new today? I’m sure we could all use a heap of “new” and wonderful and couldn’t we handle the awesomeness of watching our Red Sea part, making a way for us to cross over into God’s promises fulfilled? Well ~ God is faithful! As He led the Israelites through the wilderness He leads us! He’s our life source, our life preserver, our provider, our sustainer, our healer, our counsellor, our Savior and our Lord. Let’s not miss the new thing He’s about to open up to us by living in past glories, victories or even those devastating past failures where it so easy to wallow and get off course. There is more than all of that ~ and our sovereign God holds it for us. Open your mind and your heart to the “New” that He has in His divine, Mastermind! Be obedient! Be trusting! Be faithful! Be hopeful and watch and pray!

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.” Philippians 4: 8, 9

So beautiful soul, for today, keep it in mind. Have you heard something good recently? Then train your mind to think on it, ponder it and forget the negative. Let us focus our eyes our hearts and our minds on the events and moments that are worthy of praise and uplifting in nature and check out the awesome promise that follows that obedience! “The God of peace will be with us.” Good thoughts usher in God’s peace and sweet, divine healing but a downcast mind reels with confusion and anxiety. Choose good! Choose God and find peace today!

Difficult Obedience

_DSC0003 2

Matthew 1: 20, 21

“But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because He will save his people from their sins.”

Imagine how Joseph must have felt when he first heard the news? Perhaps hurt? Embarrassed? Disappointed? Betrayed? Most likely his emotions were all over the place as he felt all of the above. He didn’t realize that God was working, even in what seemed like a terrible situation. He didn’t realize that God was working out a solution to the world’s problem, even in what seemed like a terrible situation. He had blinders on and His perspective was wrong! He didn’t see things the way they really were and He had a plan to ‘fix it’ the best way he knew how. He decided to break the engagement quietly so as not to disgrace Mary. He wanted to do the noble thing, the right thing, but he was so wrong in his thinking that it was necessary for God to intervene, take the blinders off and enlighten Joseph’s mind! He sent an angel to set him straight and encourage him through a difficult time. Joseph’s response was immediate, simple, selfless obedience. What prepared Joseph to handle such a surprise with such grace? He was a ‘righteous’ man. Righteousness, in the Old Testament was defined as being innocent and doing right; for Matthew, the most Jewish of the gospel writers, it was being ethical and doing the will of God. Joseph truly sought to do the right thing in all situations and this situation was no different, but his plan was wrong! When God spoke through the angel, Joseph knew his plan to break the engagement was not an option. He had to be willing to make necessary changes, even in light of his reputation that was no doubt, at stake. He had to be willing to experience some difficult moments in the face of others and be obedient even through it all.

Are there any surprises in your life? Are there things that have thrown you off course? Intruded in on your life at the seemingly worst possible time? Things that are threatening your well – being? Maybe your reputation. Sure, maybe you think you know the best way to deal with it, but be careful! Handle with care! Did you ever think that quite possibly it’s God’s intervention in your life? Quite possibly it’s the storm before the blessing in His recycling program; always turning the less than ideal circumstances into good, in order to fulfill His purpose! Seek God and His righteousness! Talk to Him! Listen to His counsel and let Him enlighten you! Get a proper perspective! See things through His eyes! Make wise choices! Do as He says and do the right thing! In humbleness of spirit watch His grace surround you as He guides you through difficult days into glorious blessing.

That’s what He does!! I love how He does it!
