Quotes on Little Things Becoming Greater

I have been in the body of Christ for about 25 years now. I did not grow up in the church, I grew up in the world. Yes, God has delivered me from many things, including my negative mind. I am eternally grateful that the ‘voices’ have stopped talking in my head. Maybe you  know what I mean.

During this 25 years I have attended numerous Churches. I find an interesting quality with the leadership teams I have seen. Some are servants, doing the work that God has called us to do with humility and honor. Others, however, just want the microphone and the glory. That makes me sad. 

I really think all of us Christians need therapy. We need to learn how to serve each other and put each other before our own desires. Many Christians are mostly selfish. Sorry, that has been my experience. Yes, there are exceptions. And it is the Servant Heart is what draws me in. I trust a Shepherd who will feed and care for the sheep. You know, when you are in the Hospital, they show up. When you end up in jail, they show up. When you are sick, they visit. When you are disabled, they come.  They call to check up on you. They take an interest in what goes on the rest of the week.

Servant Leaders are the first ones to show up and take care of all the little things. They clean the bathrooms, take out the garbage, mow the grass. Stuff like that. They don’t announce it or look for a trophy, they are busy doing the Father’s work in the Father’s House. I honor the True Shepherds today because they are faithful with the little things – that really become the big things in God’s hands!

God Stays the Same When the World is Falling Apart

It has been a hard week. I have seen newborn babies born and saying in ICU. I have seen a friend have a family member diagnosed with cancer. A friend has her husband hospitalized. A baby went to surgery this week. A teenager attempted suicide. Teens have had anxiety attacks.

There is one thing that gets me through weeks like these. God is faithful. He is still in the healing business. He still sends the Holy Spirit to comfort us. God sees, God knows, and He still answers our prayers. God is faithful, when the world is falling apart.

 

These are the times I trust God to get me through the trial. I am not good at trying to do things on my own. I know I need help. God promised to help us in times like these. Just ask, and He will be there – in the middle of the mess, He promised. Choose to trust Him, He is faithful.

 

 

“The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” – Lamentations 3:22-23

“But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one.” – 2 Thessalonians 3:3 

“I am the Lord that healeth thee.” – Exodus 15:26

” I will give you strength and bless you with peace.” Psalm 29:11

“He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.” – Psalms 91:4

 

10 Trust God Quotes

Trust. It’s one of those things we get to learn by just doing it. I admit it, I have trust issues. After a lifetime of trusting the wrong people with my life I have learned you can’t trust everybody with everything. I was so naive. People are people. They have their own agendas. And sometimes they break your trust for their own reasons.

Sometimes though this has hindered my walk with trusting God. I am learning that even though people have let me down -God is faithful. He is true. And I can trust God during the dark seasons of my soul.

It’s one of this “inbetween times” for me. I am waiting for God to fulfill the promises He has told me. It’s uncomfortable. I’m not really the best waiter. But this is the time where I can exercise my faith and just rest in Him knowing He will do what He said He would do – even if I don’t see it yet. God is faithful to His promises. He said no matter what,

“I AM with you.” 

We are not alone. We have not been forsaken. He will deliver – He promised!

Matthew 28:18-20 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. 

Romans 8:37-39 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.


 

But God is Faithful

I am finding that some days the Word is all I have to hold on to. I know God is up to something, I just can’t see it yet. I can feel it in my spirit. And when I read the Word it’s like I have a MixMaster going on inside of me. Have you had days like that? It’s exciting, yet frustrating. And then there are times I am just zoning out – almost like being paralyzed or in a daze. Maybe its just old junk that I need to get rid of. Or maybe it’s the Master make a few changes to this clay pot. Can you feel His fingerprints on your life sometimes?

Today I remind myself that I don’t have to have all the answers today – because He knows the ending from the beginning.  And God is faithful. He has made a way where there is no way before, and I have faith that He will continue to surprise all of us with His goodness and mercy.

I don’t know your story, and you only know part of mine – But God is faithful. And I trust Him. Today, I am grateful, thank you Jesus.

God’s Word for You:

 

God is faithful (reliable, trustworthy, and therefore ever true to His promise, and He can be depended on); by Him you were called into companionship and participation with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. -1Corinthians 1:9 AMP

 

So let us seize and hold fast and retain without wavering the [a]hope we cherish and confess and our acknowledgement of it, for He Who promised is reliable (sure) and faithful to His word. -Hebrews 10:23 AMP

 

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].
I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust!
For [then] He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.
[Then] He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler. -Psalm 91:1-4 AMP

 

My Prayer for You:

Dear Lord,

You know what we are facing today in this world.  Thank you Lord, that no matter what You don’t change and You are faithful. When life knocks us down, let us look up for our salvation is nigh. Let us reach out to You as You are already here in our midst. You heard our cry and ready and willing to help. Today Lord, we take Your hand, and trust You – because You are faithful.

 

 

“Fingerprints Of God”
by Steven Curtis Chapman

I can see tears filling your eyes
And I know where they’re coming from
They’re coming from a heart that’s broken in two
By what you don’t see
The person in the mirror
Doesn’t look like the magazine
Oh, but when I look at you it’s clear to me that…

I can see the fingerprints of God
When I look at you
I can see the fingerprints of God
And I know it’s true
You’re a masterpiece
That all creation quietly applauds
And you’re covered with the fingerprints of God

Never has there been and never again
Will there be another you
Fashioned by God’s hand
And perfectly planned
To be just who you are
And what He’s been creating
Since the first beat of your heart
Is a living breathing priceless work of art…

I can see the fingerprints of God
When I look at you
I can see the fingerprints of God
And I know it’s true
You’re a masterpiece
That all creation quietly applauds
And you’re covered with the fingerprints of God

Just look at you
You’re a wonder in the making
Oh, and God’s not through, no
In fact, He’s just getting started…

I can see the fingerprints of God
When I look at you
I can see the fingerprints of God
And I know it’s true
You’re a masterpiece
That all creation quietly applauds
And you’re covered with the fingerprints of God
