Be Brave and Strong

July 31, 2015

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

Many times in our lives we feel we are worthless, that we don’t have a purpose. We feel lost and completely incompetent. Probably because we don’t like what we are doing or we feel we are doing nothing important for our future. However, today is a new day. God is telling you not to give up. You are chosen and unique! You are called to persevere, to be brave and strong. What a challenge! Every time you wake up you MUST understand that every single thing in your life has a purpose. Even the most insignificant details and situations you may not remember, were all created in order for God to transform your character for the BIG purpose you have with Him.

God created you in order to have a relationship based on LOVE with Him!! Isn’t that wonderful?? Let God be part of every situation of your life. Take decisions to Him…the easy ones…and the hard ones. Ask Him questions and wait for His answer patiently. Let HIM guide you. Fall in love Him all over gain every single day. Ask him to surprise you.

He called YOU and ONLY YOU out of every human in the earth. Let JESUS shine in you. Let your testimony speak for itself. Be a leader and an example, and don’t let the situations distract you from your relationship with God. Always remember, GOD is good all the time!! He will never leave your side, and you are totally worth it!

Prayer: Thank you Lord for your wonderful encouragement to my soul. Now I ask that you show me who you want me to encourage and bless today. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

How long is a long time?

July 30, 2015

“Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.” Proverbs 13:12, NIV

We all have the prayer list, you know, the one listing of all the most important things we’ve been praying for. Those things that weigh heavily on our hearts, block our thoughts and make us sigh under the pain and sorrow from time to time. Yes, that list. List of our nearest and dearest, our children, friends, spouse, financial situations, health, and future. Some of those things are on that list for years on end, some briefly visit the list and some wretched unfortunate ones come back on the list.

Many of us have asked, pleaded, fasted, made promises, tried to clean up our acts in order to speed up the breakthrough. We have asked for prayer time and time again in church prayer meetings, and we have exhausted our friends by talking about these things through the years.

I want to comfort you my worn out sister, the Lord hears and He cares. He is your Father, and He is the only One who has the last word in this world and in heaven.

Prayer: Dear God, I ask on behalf of all reading this now, that you answer our most deep and old prayers. Lord, please comfort us as we wait for your answer, and if you still say no, I ask you to show us that clearly. Father, most of us are praying for the salvation of our nearest and dearest, Lord please call on them and talk to them, as You talked to us once. Lord, hear our cry! In Jesus name I pray.
