We have to walk every day in faith... stepping in knowing that HE IS WHO HE SAYS HE IS... and us not always 'believing' it. BUT, we cannot dismiss His Word, His promises, His provisions... You are a child of God, He loves you, there is no reason to doubt... so when we doubt, we have to remember it is one of two things; an attack of the enemy or just bad habits. For the most part, it is our own habits that hinder our walk...
So, what do we do? We trust, moment to moment... breath by breath.
If you don't let go, you will not change. He will strengthen you to do it, but you cannot resist His input... We become what we tell ourselves. We are what we focus on most...
If you keep telling yourself "I can't", than you won't...
What are some of the verses that keep you going in the midst of doubt or fear?
Belief, one breath, one moment at a time. We tend to make excuses rather than believe our Creator's promises.
Help us LORD. Help me LORD!
If you are feeling discouraged, depressed or in despair, pray for others as you need to be prayed for... pray in whole heart for those suffering as you are suffering. In whole heart, cry out to the LORD, for He is faithful and loves you so much... in despair, empty of ourselves, we can know His desire is for us to recognize that HE ALREADY FILLS US...
O' Lord Jesus, thank You for the amazing gift of the Holy Spirit, where we can understand Your promises... we love You Father, and desire to know You more, love You more deeply and trust You, believe, believe... believe.
“The righteous cry, and the LORD hears And delivers them out of all their troubles.” ~Psalm 34:17 (New American Standard Bible)
How beautiful Your Word Father. How wonderful Your promises and encouragement. Thank You that I am Yours.
"But now, thus says the Lord, your Creator, O Jacob,
And He who formed you, O Israel,
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name; you are Mine!" ~Isaiah 43:1 (New American Standard Bible)
Let us be aware of all He is for us, and all He says we are.
"Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor;" ~Romans 12:10 (New American Standard Bible)
What does this verse mean to you?
Let's take it a little further. " Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love;[a] give preference to one another in honor; not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer, contributing to the needs of the [b]saints, [c]practicing hospitality."
[a] Romans 12:10 Or outdo one another in showing honor
[b] Romans 12:13 Or holy ones
[c] Romans 12:13 Lit pursuing
I hunger and thirst for You Father and daily, I am quenched in new ways... the living Water of my Redeemer for whom, there is no match.
Thank You Father for truth and conviction of the deepest levels. I love You.
