Jeremiah 29:11-14 give us hope telling us…For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, declares the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile.
Hold on my brothers and sisters! Be strong mighty warriors of the Kingdom of God! Praise the Lord; don’t get bitter because surely, it will get better and better. Good things come to those who wait. Trust in Isaiah 40:31 which remind us saying…”But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” Be encouraged! God’s got this!
Difficult circumstances, chaos and frustrations can hit us at any given time. However, how we handle these things is what counts. Do we burst out in anger or rage? Do we become fearful? Brothers and sisters, our Lord and Savior consistently kept a perfect attitude.
Jesus prayed often and did not worry. Jesus’ goal was to please the “Father” at all cost. 1 Peter 2:23 says… He did not retaliate when he was insulted, nor threaten revenge when he suffered. He left his case in the hands of God, who always judges fairly. God will not allow chains to hold us back. He breaks every chain, every hindrance. For no weapon formed against us shall prosper!
You see, Jesus never got caught up in being offensive, then defensive, then surrendering to depression. Jesus was patient during times of persecution and suffering. Jesus was ridiculed, threatened, abused and subjected to hostile crowds of haters.
But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the LORD; their vindication will come from me. I, the LORD, have spoken! (Isaiah 54:17)
WE cannot control that sinful nature inside us…that’s why Romans 5:6 tells us “When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. Grace is the sovereign (or superior) act of God by which we are drawn irresistibly to Him…Ephesians 1:5 says… “God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.
Salvation indeed means God rescued us from the power of sin. In Salvation, God takes us out of unfavorable conditions to supportive positions for our well-being… Salvation implies safety, health and prosperity. Brothers and Sisters, God wants to deliver us from all things that prevents us from reaching our highest good. However, who will spread this news of Salvation? Will you or will your wait for someone else to do it? Will you step out without a script and allow God to put his words into your mouth? Will you be a willing instrument and a joyous participant in the body of Christ doing the will of God? Remember, God desires that all people be SAVED! WILL YOU GO?
Mathematics never looked so beautiful as this. Some of you may have watched this video but it does not hurt to watch it again. Number systems like this are from God…He (not we) made the numerical system so perfect! So flawless! The person who God worked through and gave the secret of how to get to 101% is a highly anointed person. Praise the Lord! He deserves all the praise and honor!
