You’re Part of the Family

There are benefits that just come with being part of the Family of God. When we are adopted by Abba Father there are things that He has promised us:

Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.

– Psalm 103:1-6 KJV

 

titus

God has promised to forgive us, to heal us.

He crowns us with His Love and Mercy.

He satisfies us with GOOD things.

He renews our Youth!

He is the One who executes righteousness to make all the bad things turn into good.

All things work together for GOOD when God is our Father.

BLESS THE LORD

by Matt Redman

 

Bless the Lord oh my soul
Oh my soul
Worship His Holy name
Sing like never before
Oh my soul
I’ll worship Your Holy name

The sun comes up
It’s a new day dawning
It’s time to sing Your song again
Whatever may pass
And whatever lies before me
Let me be singing
When the evening comes

Bless the Lord oh my soul
Oh my soul
Worship His Holy name
Sing like never before
Oh my soul
I’ll worship Your Holy name

You’re rich in love
And You’re slow to anger
Your name is great
And Your heart is kind
For all Your goodness
I will keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons
For my heart to find

Bless the Lord oh my soul
Oh my soul
Worship His Holy name
Sing like never before
Oh my soul
I’ll worship Your Holy name
Bless You Lord

And on that day
When my strength is failing
The end draws near
And my time has come
Still my soul will
Sing Your praise unending
Ten thousand years
And then forevermore
Forevermore

Bless the Lord oh my soul
Oh my soul
Worship His Holy name
Sing like never before
Oh my soul
I’ll worship Your Holy name

Bless the Lord oh my soul
Oh my soul
Worship His Holy name
Sing like never before
Oh my soul
I’ll worship Your Holy name

I’ll worship Your Holy name
Jesus I will worship Your Holy name

Sing like never before
Oh my soul
I’ll worship your holy name

But God is Faithful

No matter what you are facing today – God is faithful. He will do what He said. He will never leave you nor forsake you. God is with you. Thank you Jesus!

Prayers and Promises

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…

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!


10 Trust God Quotes – Verses on How God is With Us

Genesis 28:15 Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you.” 

Joshua 1:5 No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you. 

Psalm 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. 

Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ 

Zephaniah 3:17 The Lord your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save;He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.” 

Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” 

Haggai 1:13 Then Haggai, the Lord’s messenger, spoke the Lord’s message to the people, saying, “I am with you, says the Lord.” 

Hebrews 13:5-6 Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we may boldly say: “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” 

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.


 

Preceded by Chaos

The Body of Christ is so weary, including me.  Yes, it’s Monday. And I fall down at the feet of my Savior and cry out, “How long Lord, how long?” We desperately need a new breath of God. Everything we thought we knew has come to naught. The new wind of the Spirit will revive us. So we sit and search and wait. Just like those folks did in the Upper Room. I’m sure those Disciple guys felt like their world was falling apart into complete chaos. But the best was yet to come!

Let’s pray and sing psalms together and wait for what God promised.

Come to Me

What promise are you waiting on?

Here are 3 Promises I am holding onto these days:

 

  1. I am waiting on the promise that, “Not by might, not by strength, but by My Spirit.” We are so blessed to have a congregation of worshippers. Praise and worship brings in the presence of God like a breath of fresh air. God knows what we need, and when we need it to. He promised to provide – not only in the physical world, but in the spiritual realm as well. He knows his kiddos are tired and He has the oil of joy that will break the yokes of bondage. The anointing of GOD is in the oil – the Holy Spirit. Thank you Holy Spirit –  lead us, comfort us, guide us into all truth, in Jesus Name.
  2. And I am waiting on “Everything your hand touches will prosper.” I have seen it happen in my children’s lives. They are so blessed beyond belief the don’t even know it.  I am grateful that God has shown them all tremendous favor.  And I am grateful for the new season He is bringing me and my husband into. I don’t want to camp in the valley. I don’t even really like camping. And I know what the valley looks like. I’m ready for a new view. How about you?
  3. And, “I will restore the years the locust have eaten. ”  I have to believe that God can make some use out of my messed up life. I didn’t think all that junk would happen. Maybe you didn’t either. Sometimes the best intentions end up going haywire. Sometimes covenants are not kept due to no fault of your own. Sometimes junk just happens. We live in a fallen world.

“Life is a hell of a thing to happen to a person.”

~Rossi on Criminal Minds

But I survived, and so did you.  In fact, God can make good come out of whatever the enemy used to try to destroy you. Look at Joseph. Look at Job. Don’t give up yet – your story isn’t over yet my friends. And neither is mine. Let’s see where God takes us. I hear He is a really good driver. He knows the way. And I  don’t even think He needs Google Maps!

Where Do You Find Hope?

Hope – it was the number one word searched for in Google in 2014. We are all looking for Hope. She is friends with PEACE and JOY too. Once you are with those three, anything can happen! Here is a video I made a while back when I was searching for HOPE. Guess what? I found her!

God’s Word for You:

Truly my soul finds rest in God;
my salvation comes from him.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation;Psalm 62
he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
How long will you assault me?
Would all of you throw me down—
this leaning wall, this tottering fence?
Surely they intend to topple me
from my lofty place;
they take delight in lies.
With their mouths they bless,
but in their hearts they curse.
Yes, my soul, find rest in God;
my hope comes from him.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.Psalm 71
My salvation and my honor depend on God;
he is my mighty rock, my refuge.
Trust in him at all times, you people;
pour out your hearts to him,
for God is our refuge.
Surely the lowborn are but a breath,
the highborn are but a lie.
If weighed on a balance, they are nothing;
together they are only a breath.
Do not trust in extortion
or put vain hope in stolen goods;
though your riches increase,
do not set your heart on them.
One thing God has spoken,
two things I have heard:
“Power belongs to you, God,
and with you, Lord, is unfailing love”;
and, “You reward everyone
according to what they have done.”  (Psalm 62:1-12 NIV)

My Prayer for You:

Dear Lord,

We confess we have been looking for Hope in the wrong places. We thought our jobs, our houses, our friends, our spouses, and our money would bring us Hope. They do not. Today, we lay down our idols. We burn them outside of the camp. They are like grass, withering away. They are like the tumbleweed blowing in the desert sand. We are tired of chasing the wrong things. Create a clean heart in us today God, renew a steadfast spirit within us, and restore unto us the JOY of your Salvation, in Jesus Name.

Rainbow Promises – NaPoWriMo Day 21

Then God spoke to Noah and his sons: “I’m setting up my covenant with you including your children who will come after you, along with everything alive around you—birds, farm animals, wild animals—that came out of the ship with you. I’m setting up my covenant with you that never again will everything living be destroyed by floodwaters; no, never again will a flood destroy the Earth.”

God continued, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and everything living around you and everyone living after you. I’m putting my rainbow in the clouds, a sign of the covenant between me and the Earth. From now on, when I form a cloud over the Earth and the rainbow appears in the cloud, I’ll remember my covenant between me and you and everything living, that never again will floodwaters destroy all life. When the rainbow appears in the cloud, I’ll see it and remember the eternal covenant between God and everything living, every last living creature on Earth.”And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant that I’ve set up between me and everything living on the Earth.”   (Genesis 9:8-17 MSG)

Promises of Restoration

God wants to restore things – better than they ever were.  He promises to restore, deliver, provide, and protect.  These are the Words I cling to when life ‘happens’.  Don’t let the ‘weeds’ choke out the LIFE of His Word!

 

Joel 2:25-27

The Message (MSG)

“I’ll make up for the years of the locust,
the great locust devastation—
Locusts savage, locusts deadly,
fierce locusts, locusts of doom,
That great locust invasion
I sent your way.
You’ll eat your fill of good food.
You’ll be full of praises to your God,
The God who has set you back on your heels in wonder.
Never again will my people be despised.
You’ll know without question
that I’m in the thick of life with Israel,
That I’m your God, yes, your God,
the one and only real God.
Never again will my people be despised.

Jeremiah 30:16-17

The Message (MSG)

“‘Everyone who hurt you will be hurt;
your enemies will end up as slaves.
Your plunderers will be plundered;
your looters will become loot.
As for you, I’ll come with healing,
curing the incurable,
Because they all gave up on you
and dismissed you as hopeless—
that good-for-nothing Zion.’

Psalm 51:7-15

The Message (MSG)

Soak me in your laundry and I’ll come out clean,
scrub me and I’ll have a snow-white life.
Tune me in to foot-tapping songs,
set these once-broken bones to dancing.
Don’t look too close for blemishes,
give me a clean bill of health.
God, make a fresh start in me,
shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life.
Don’t throw me out with the trash,
or fail to breathe holiness in me.
Bring me back from gray exile,
put a fresh wind in my sails!
Give me a job teaching rebels your ways
so the lost can find their way home.
Commute my death sentence, God, my salvation God,
and I’ll sing anthems to your life-giving ways.
Unbutton my lips, dear God;
I’ll let loose with your praise.
