His word is a mirror that allows us to see who we are completely. It will show us the good, the bad and the ugly that lies within us. When we see what and who we are will we have the mind to repent and change the bad and the ugly? Not hide it or ignore it. And will we choose to further develop the good and allow God to put us back on the potters wheel to make us over by molding us to be more like Christ. When I see who I am and I find those things in me that are not so good, Jesus doesn’t have to put me back on the wheel because I’m already climbing onto it myself. My heart says I need to be made over Lord, there are some things in my life that I don’t like about myself and I need to change it. Do we love God enough to be that transparent with ourselves? The word of God is powerful, it has the power to transform us and our lives into something we never could have imagined. We can do great things in the Word of God. #greatness #greatnessliveshere #wordofgod #hiddeningod #hiddeninchrist #hiddeninchristjesus
People say that time heals all wounds but the Bible says that “HE HEALS”. Like a mother does a child when they’ve fallen and are injured. He picks us up, comforts us and assures us we are safe and okay. Our hearts are broken and we are wounded and bloody. He consoles our hearts with healing and cleans and bandages our wounds. Knowing that we will live He then sends us back out to the world to learn, to grow, to plant seeds of love and kindness, to have joy and peace and to produce good fruit. But most of all to be a light in a world of darkness, salt that flavors and melts the cold hard hearts of the world. And to bring glory to His name. #hehealsthebrokenhearted #hebandagestheirwounds #hisnameisjesus #hiddeningod #hiddeninchristjesus
Heavenly Father, I am Your warrior – prepare me for battle. Today I claim victory over Satan by putting on the whole armor of God! I put on the Girdle of Truth! May I stand firm in the Truth of Your Word so I will not be a victim of Satan’s lies. I put on the breastplate of righteousness! May it guard my heart from evil so that I will remain pure and holy, protected under the blood of Jesus Christ. I put on the sandals of peace! May I stand firm in the GOOD NEWS of the Gospel, so Your peace will shine through me and be a light to all I encounter. I take the shield of faith! May I be ready for Satan’s fiery darts of doubt, denial and deceit. I put on the helmet of salvation! May I keep my mind focused on You so Satan will not have a stronghold on my thoughts. I take the Sword of the Spirit! May the two-edged sword of Your Word be ready in my hands so I can expose the tempting words of Satan. By FAITH, Your warrior has put on the whole armor of God. I am prepared to live this day in spiritual victory, In Jesus name. Amen!
Each day I find myself in need of drawing closer to my Savior, Jesus Christ. He is my Father, my first Husband, my faithful Friend, my Guidance Counselor, my Leader, my Confidant, my Protector, my Provider, my ALL. He is the refreshing breath of life I need throughout my everyday and the one who gives me peace in the midst of chaos and storms. I turn to Him because there is no one else that can do what He does. He says “Peace be still”, and the winds cease and the rain stop, the waves of the ocean stand still. Who couldn’t love a God like that. As I type these words there is an overwhelming feeling washing over my heart as I fall in love all over again with who God is.
Thank You Oh Lord for loving me. Thank You for everyday that You give me an opportunity to live for You, to stand on Your Word. Help me Lord to acknowledge You in all of my ways and in everything that I do. Let it be done with a pure heart and the right motives. Let Your word continue to be rooted in my heart and always ready on my tongue to speak live and not death. Let Your word proceed from my lips to cross vast seas and oceans to reach the hearts and minds of Your people across the world that they may be saved, delivered and set free. Lord may You know the inner most secret parts of my heart and it please You. Jesus may I hold on to You so tightly as You hold on to me and I run this race that You have set before me with patience and endure until the end, that I may obtain the prize that You have prepared for me. In Jesus name. Amen.
