Get Ready For The Real Ride!

There is a verse of scripture that reads like this, "If you'll hold on to me for dear life, says God, I'll get you out of any trouble. I'll give you the best of care if you'll only get to know and trust me." Psalm 91:14 I love the way that reads.

We serve a God Who truly is MORE than enough! He's the God Who can turn our struggles into victory! He's the God Who can take defeat and make you the winner! No matter what the problem or the circumstance, there is no need to wonder or be concerned, HE will do it again!

We, as believers, must stay submitted to the Lord. Many people end up losing miracles because they don't hold on. 2 Chronicles 26:5 says that as long as he sought the Lord, God made him prosper.

Protect your garden, your secret place! Seek the Lord always. Hold on to Him. He will deliver you because He has delivered you! Hold on, you've just been going up that steep hill! Get ready for the real ride as you go into that land of "milk and honey!" Amen!

Being Happy In The Middle Of It All!

Good quotes are inspirational. Here's one that really speaks, "When the train goes through a tunnel and the world gets dark, do you jump off? Of course not! You sit still and trust the engineer to get you through." Corrie Ten Boom made that statement. It's so true too! Faith that overcomes the world demands focus. You will become what captures your thoughts.

When you feel sad or down, you need to shout and keep your joy on! When the heat is on, allow your thoughts to be captured by the Word and praise! One preacher said, "It's a poor dog that won't wag his own tail." YOU have to encourage yourself in God! 1 Samuel 30:6 says that at a very dark time in David's life, HE encouraged himself in the Lord!

If we really know God as our loving heavenly Father, we would consider fellowship with Him our greatest treasure. When the tunnel is dark stay on the train, trust the engineer and encourage yourself in Him! Being happy in the middle will determine how fast you get out of that tunnel.
