I find it incredibly amazing how at every sunset, the sky is a different shade. No cloud is ever in the same place. Each day is a new masterpiece. A new wonder. A new memory. Your thought should be creative and not destructive; it should be full of hope and faith for a more excellent future because you are God’s masterpiece. You are His finest, most beautiful work of art. He created you in His image. He created you perfect so stop treating yourself like a shattered piece. Sometimes, we take His perfection and make a big mess out of ourselves and our lives. We humans in our fallen state are messy. We are imperfect. Therefore, we desperately need the Ultimate Artist to take the scraps, the ephemera, the torn pieces of our hearts and lives, and make them into a beautiful work of art. How far you go in life and in your career is dependent on how far you can think good thoughts because your future is dependent on your thought today, therefore think good and lovely thoughts now.

Always set your mind to think thoughts of victory even before the battle begins, this way you will experience limitless possibilities. Your life today and tomorrow is patterned alongside your thoughts. You are therefore advised to create good and wonderful thoughts today so they will deliver a beautiful tomorrow for you. Our thoughts create our lifestyle, if you live healthy, it means you think healthy thoughts and if you think unhealthy thoughts, it will reflect in your health and lifestyle too. When your thought is right, your imaginations will be colourful; you will then dream and not have nightmares. Don’t give up on your greatest masterpiece — You. Think on blessings and not curses, beauty not ugliness, health not sickness. Meditate on wealth not poverty, success not failure, grace not disgrace and use the powerful tool of thought and develop your mindset to believing and knowing you can change anything to your favour; yes, you have God`s Word so fashion your thought according to God`s Word.

Nothing Is Impossible With Our God


The fact that with God ‘all things are possible’ is proven by the fact that God created the entire universe out of nothing. There is more than one thing that God cannot do and that is that God cannot lie!

Do you sometimes find yourself facing a seemingly impossible situation? It might be a relationship that seems to have broken down irretrievably, or an issue to do with health, finances or something else where change seems impossible. With God there is always hope, no matter how bad things look. Nothing is impossible with God. His power makes all things possible. We know that for every effect there has to be a cause but there does not have to be an effect for every cause because God is uncaused. So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable. Impossible only means that you haven’t found the solution yet. In our lives we will have times that will test our faith. We have times that will make us feel that nothing is going right and there seems to be no end in sight. However, things have a way of working out and having faith, belief and a focused positive attitude will allow you to get through those tough times. With God’s help you will get through.

What we can or cannot do, what we consider possible or impossible, is rarely a function of our true capability. It is more likely a function of our beliefs about who we are and we would accomplish many more things if we did not think of them as impossible. The limits of the possible can only be defined by going beyond them into the impossible and there is nothing impossible to him who will try. We need to also understand that most of the things worth doing in the world had been declared impossible before they were done. No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide a way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. Whatever struggles you are facing at the moment, however difficult life looks, however impossible the situation seems, it is important to remember his love for you and trust that ‘with God all things are possible’.

The Big Picture of God’s Faithfulness


God doesn’t owe us anything yet in His grace, He still gives us good things. He sees the perils that are in our path that we cannot see. He speaks to us in mercy and grace and He builds us up to meet the dangers and be prepared to receive the things we could not wisely use today. There are many things which we can employ tomorrow that we cannot wisely use today.

The faithfulness of God is true and has been proven many times. God cannot lie, nor can He break an unconditional promise that He says He will fulfill. Every covenant He made is kept and every promise or foretelling has or will come true. When we are going through the ordeal of being unfairly attacked, when we are being lied about, when our reputation is being publicly smeared, when our friends betray us, when a spouse abandons us, it may appear impossible that such things could accomplish anything good, but they do. The key is the word “appear.” We see far less than what God sees. The good that may come from the treachery of others is not planned by the hand of man, is not seen in advance, and is not seen at all except by faith. Only God can fully satisfy the hungry heart of man.

Many  times we mistakenly compare God’s faithfulness to ours. Sometimes on, Sometimes off. However, God’s faithfulness is far beyond what we could ever succeed on our own. if there is a measure of faithfulness accredited to us, It’s all because of his faithfulness that give us strength to do it. Nothing of God dies when a man of God dies. We die, but the promises of God live on. They bury us, but they don’t bury God’s promises with us. Your death cannot nullify God’s faithfulness. Our God is the God of the future. He is the God of the generations to come. God is so faithful that anyone who seeks Him can find Him. Faith is a gift, but even a gift must be opened to be enjoyed. As we implement our faith, we begin to realize more and more about God’s faithfulness to us. God cannot act out of character with His essential nature. None of God’s attributes can ever contradict any other attribute, but all harmonize perfectly with each other. Since He is perfect and unchangeable, He can never cease to be what He is. Everything that God has done or everything He will do, is consistent with all that He is. Everything that God does will always agree with all that God is.

Cultivating Dependence on God’s Strength


Trusting God doesn’t come easy. We can’t see, touch, or hear His voice, at least not in the same way we do the humans in our life. Sometimes we put our trust in objects and other times we put our trust in man. But the reality is, God alone sustains us! We are to rely on HIM for all of our needs. To rely is to depend on with full trust or confidence.

cultivating

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do and he will show you which path to take. Don’t ask God to guide your steps if you’re not willing to move your feet and God will not permit any troubles to come upon us, unless He has a specific plan by which great blessing can come out of the difficulty because the beginning of anxiety is the end of faith, and the beginning of true faith is the end of anxiety. We all lean on our own understanding; we all depend on our own strength; we fail to acknowledge him, which is why we get so confused and start to question things; and we don’t trust in the Lord, but we trust in ourselves. Before doing anything, we need to try this: pray before you do anything. Lift God up, and really believe it. Don’t just say it and know that you’re still going to rely on yourself, but truly believe that you didn’t do any of this: God did this.

Dependence is something that has to be relearned on a regular basis because the blessings of a God-dependent life are many. Living every day as if our every breath came from the Lord causes the believer to rest under the good hand of God. I have learned that faith means trusting in advance what will only make sense in reverse and we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. Genuine faith is relying on God’s direction and on who he is. God is reliable. He knows what you need, and he wants to meet those needs. Unfortunately, we think we know better. We think we have a better plan. We want to use our logic and get to the answer in a way that makes us look good and doesn’t require risk. But God wants us to grow, so he takes us a different way. Faith is the vision of the heart; it sees God in the dark as well as in the day and you’ll never know that God is all you need until God is all you’ve got.

Worry Is Worthless! God Takes Care of You


Worrying is worthless! You probably know that already, but the question is, have you stopped worrying? What is it that right now you are worrying about? I’m reminding you and me of how useless and worthless it is to worry. So, whatever you are worrying about at this moment is a total waste of time. Casting all your anxieties on God, because he cares for you.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds. There is an underlying assumption by those who worry that they have at least some level of control over their circumstances which, in reality, only God has ultimate control over. There is something inside of them that knows that they are not in control and that they cannot control all that happens in their lives, but they sure want to be able to be in total control. They want to know, fully understand, and control all that is going on, that has gone on, and that will go on. They effectively want to usurp God’s position as sovereign, all-powerful, and all-knowing. It is not that they are seeking to replace God, for even this would worry them. But it is that they are struggling to abandon themselves and those whom they care about to God’s control. God is in control, and He does care.  But those who worry struggle to believe that and appropriate it. Those who worry tend to mistrust God and have an overly-inflated view of their own ability to make their lives what they want them to be.

The promise of God is that He will not allow His children to beg for bread. He will care for our needs and that’s the promise you can claim. To surrender to God does not mean that we submit to fate as if we have no responsibility or choices to make in life. Many times our own difficulties are a result of our own making and irresponsible behavior. Nothing happens to us that is outside of God’s permissive will, and he is totally in control of our days.  And because of who we are, we should not worry. Do you know how much energy it takes to worry?  You are spending lots of emotional and mental energy when you’re in worry mode and has it ever done you one bit of good?  No, of course not.  Worrying is worthless!  That’s a really good reason for any sensible person to just refuse to worry. So we must not worsen matters by not doing what God has already instructed us to do. We are not helpless beings, and we do have a will and a responsibility to act.

The road to freedom from worry is to trust God, to rest in His love, and to truly believe that He is able and that we are not. Will we let God take the controls of our lives today, knowing and believing that He can do it better than we can? If you are a real worrier, you can be sure people know it, because you talk about it, it shows on your face and body language, and it’s not particularly attractive. Remember, worrying is worthless, a total waste of your time, and it indicates you need to stop and check out why your worrying instead of trusting the Sovereign God, who is your Heavenly Father.

 

God Will Never Leave Us Alone


God will never leave you empty. If something is taken away, He will replace it with something better. If He denies your request in a certain area, it is because He wishes to give you what is best. If He asks you to put something down, it is so you can pick up something greater.

my-life

Most people are too attached to the past, to what they are familiar with, and therefore, miss opportunities that stand right in front of them. Doors may close, but there are always, other, unlimited number of doors – new opportunities. The world is full of opportunities, if we could only see them. The Infinite Power is boundless, and so the possibilities are without number. Not every plan works out. Sometimes, there are losses and failures. Sometimes, there are problems in relationships. Sometimes, people lose their money or job, or meet other unpleasant things. We don’t always have control over these events, but we can exercise control over our mind and attitude.

At times we endure trials so difficult we wonder how we’ll come through it. Life in a broken world means all of us experience loneliness and isolation in various ways.  While it is excruciating to be left alone, a startling question we don’t always get to ask ourselves is: what if we only had ourselves and our own thoughts and feelings to talk to? Where would we be?

Mercifully, the Lord never intended for us to be alone, especially the deepest place: our souls. When we really get that promise, when you know that promise way down deep in your knower, it’ll revolutionize your life. When everything else is stripped away, when all the things we are attached to are gone, we discover that in the end, only God holds life. It’s only God who matters. And his promise is certain. When all else is gone, there is still God. God’s sweet voice saying, I will never leave you nor forsake you.

God is teaching us the only place for your trust is in him. Everything else will fade or let you down. Don’t put your trust in what you have. Life is not what you have. Hear it again: Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have. ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.’ Trust God and him alone. That’s the one sure thing – God’s promise of his presence.

 

 

Under His Wings You Will Find Refuge


Under his wings you will find refuge. It’s not a simple truth, but it is the truth. And we ought to believe it with everything that is in us.

These are wonderful words of comfort. They speak of God as the Protector of those who trust in Him. They promise that while many will suffer destruction, the one who has trusted in God, who has fled to Him for safety, will be delivered. In this tough life we live we have to be able to find refuge and solace in God and his plans for us. Though at times we may feel like we can do it all by ourselves, the simple truth is, we cant. There is only one way to get through our lives and being able to reach our full potential requires that we trust in God when times are good and when times are bad.

The point is that God is our shelter when the winds begin to howl and under God’s wings we are defended, protected, perfectly safe. It means that someone else is in charge. Someone big, strong, and experienced. Someone who never goes off duty. Many in society have placed such a stigma on being as Christ-like as possible, that many try to do so, and when they aren’t able to live perfectly, they turn away because they feel too unholy to further establish a continual relationship with God.

Instead of worrying about the things in life that you do wrong, and trying to live life without sin or mistakes, realize that you must live your life through the strength of God and his strength alone. Know that no one is or ever will be perfect except for Jesus, and that the only way to achieve eternal salvation isn’t by what you do on your own, but instead by what you do through God. This hope is not for everyone, but only for those who have turned to God for their security and safety. Remember: Life here is short. Live in the light of eternity.
