In The Hands Of God; It’s Never Wasted!!!

My time is in God’s hands, His thoughts are higher than mine, His ways are much better, therefore I must surrender to His perfect plans, I must resist my sinful flesh enticing demands, while seeking my God daily for His peace-filled, most effective commands

Though reaching this place was no easy task, perpetually, in the ambiance of my Father’s presence I bask

See, even now if I look at life through the lens of the natural eye, my heart would cry, I’ve wasted so much time chasing an empty dream, listening to the devil’s lie

I digress, it’s Jesus name, His will and His way that I confess, my Lord has a way of redeeming the time, making all things new and cleaning up my mess

There are promises written in The Word of God for me, and for you too, Romans 8:28 tells us: “ALL” things work together for good to those who love God, those who are called according to His purpose… My God can manifest His purpose in us and through us despite what we have done, despite what we do

The meat of God’s Word, “I’VE TASTED”, now I know, that I know, that I know,

In The Hands Of God; It’s Never Wasted!!!

The Word Of God Tells Us!!!

The Word of God tells us: we “WILL” experience tribulation, we will experience disappointment, the lack of fulfillmentĀ  of some expectation

The Word of God also tells us over and over again, to be strong and courageous, for we have an enemy who’s motive is to steal, kill and destroy, an enemy who is far from advantageous

The Word of God tells us that Christ Himself endured all the pain of the cross by the glory that was set before Him, meaning; He knew the victory that His temporary demise would bring, He knew that it was to our Heavenly Father which even He had to tightly cling

The Word of God tells us: for those who love God, those who have accepted the call to His purpose, “All” things are working together for good, even the worst of circumstances will reveal God’s goodness within our lives when we can say: it’s in The Word of God that I’ve firmly stood.

The Word of God tells us that Jesus Christ…IS…The Way, The Truth, The Life

We do well when, without grumbling, without fuss, we diligently seek God’s Word, listening, preparing to obey whatever

The Word Of God Tells Us!!!

I Choose To Wait!!!

My flesh wants what it wants, it wants it now and it wants it it’s own way, Psalm 27:14 tells us to wait on the Lord, but this command, my flesh wants to resist, trying hard “NOT” to obey

But my God has proven His faithfulness to me time and time again; intervening on my behalf, divinely, even when I’ve acted unkindly

Even when, to those sinful, fleshly desires I submitted, even when I fall short of that which, to my Lord I’ve committed

I’ve learned; waiting on God’s perfect will to be manifested in God’s perfect time is always best, see, many of my blessings have been delayed by me trying to avoid preparation and tests

Trying to take the path of least resistance, walking by sight, not by faith with persistence

I’ve learned, and I’ve learned the hard way, but now I’m convinced, so it’s right here that I’ll stay, in the hands of my Heavenly Father being shaped, being molded as a potter does his clay

Therefore, even when I’m anxious, when it seems as though, regarding my provision God is running late, when it seem as though there isn’t enough on my plate, I will not move ahead, it’s still on my God that,

I Choose To Wait!!!

Not My Will, Not My Way

Not My Will, Not My Way

 

Life never seem to happen as I see it should, never really as I’ve planned, but as long as I’m in God’s will, I can stand

The eyes of my faith are not as foggy as they once were; in my heart The Father’s only begotten Son has risen, burning away the fog, so I can walk by faith even when I can’t naturally see clear, even when the voice of the enemy is speaking loudly in my ear

My Heavenly Father is revealing to me; His way is better than mine, on the other side of every frustration or disappointment I’ve witnessed God manifest within me a spiritual peace, a inner shine

Now I’m able to wholeheartedly say:

Not My Will, Not My Way

I know, that I know, that I know; God’s not dead, and I trust every word my God has said.

I trust the fact; Father knows best, I believe, I receive, in my Father’s will is total and complete rest

So it’s in Him that I live, move and have my being, no longer moved by what my natural eyes see, but it’s through the eyes of faith that I’m now seeing

This walk of faith is by no means easy, I need the power of God’s Spirit dwelling within me, I need a spiritual ear to hear the words my Heavenly Father’s still, small voice has spoken, the word’s that He may even now say, therefore I need to daily commune and fellowship with Him, I need always to pray, then I can, for the glory set before me boldly say,

Not My Will, Not My Way

 

Romans 12:2 (KJV)

And Be Not Conformed To This World: But Be Ye Transformed By The Renewing Of Your Mind, That Ye May Prove What Is That Good, And Acceptable, And Perfect Will Of God.

 

Thine Will Father, Not My Will,

Not as the world does Father, but as You would have me to do, in every situation, in every conversation; Father, help me to obey You.

Your Living Word dwells inside of me; and over two thousand years ago, Your Living Word indeed made me free.

Though not free to do all that I please, rather free from the desire to snatch the trinkets the enemy uses to tempt and to tease.

So, as the world move along at a frantic pace, I choose peace and a spirit that’s still, I choose,

Thine Will Father, Not My Will

How Would We Know

How Would We Know

How would we know God as a Deliverer if we were never bound, how would we know Jesus as the Way if we were never lost with a need to be found, and if we never found ourselves at the foot of that big ol’ mountain going round and round

How would we know our Lord as the Prince of Peace if we were never shaken, if we never experienced a little fear, as a Healer if our hearts were never wounded and we never had to shed a tear

How would we know our Father as Love if we never witnessed the enemy’s hate, how would we know God as an on time God if we move in our own will fearing that, regarding His promises, God is running behind, He’s late, when God wants us to be still and know, and on Him faithfully, patiently wait

How would we know God as a Provider if we never had a need, how would we know Him as the Producer of fruit if we never planted seed, how would we even know what to expect from God if we never picked up God’s Word to read, and posses the willingness to follow His Holy Spirit’s lead

How Would We Know

 

 

 

 

 

 

How Do We Love In A World Full Of Hate

How Do We Love In A World Full Of Hate

This fallen world in which we live is getting more hateful by the day, society’s majority has accepted the devil’s way of play, listening and obeying every lying, deceptive word that he say, the daily news alone is enough to propel me to perpetually pray.

Mass murder of innocent human beings, all sorts of people doing all sorts of satanic, demonic things.

Even on Holy ground, places where one would never expect to hear that deadly sound, gunshots fired, round after round after round, hate has the hearts and minds of so many utterly bound.

There’s hate in the lands on the other side of the sea, to the east, the west, to the north, the south, hate is all around, and in clear view so we can plainly see, hate is even intertwined in the shows that’s created for T.V., fact is, hate binds up, hate cannot set free, hate is produced and brought to life in the heart of man through man’s eternal enemy.

What’s on the inside is what eventually seeps out, God is Love, and it’s in Love that we are able to stand against hate strong and stout, when we fill ourselves with Love’s Word, we are able to trump hate, because over Love hate has no clout.

How Do We Love In A World Full Of Hate

The Living Word of God tells us that the Love of many would wax cold, so in this day, to Love we must keep a tight hold, even when we’re all caught up in the midst of hate, it’s only in Love that we’re able to remain steadfast and bold, it’s in The Word of God that we will find the greatest Love story ever told.

A story about a Savoir who came from Heaven to a fallen world full of a people who are desperately lost, even for those who literally, physically hung Him there, He gave up His life on a old rugged cross, to die for your friends is one thing, but to die for an enemy is Love’s ultimate cost.

God is Love, so when it’s in the Word of Love that we meditate, society’s hate, can’t penetrate, it’s this Love that has the power to actually make us brand new, not “just” wipe our sins away and give us a clean slate, and on the manifestation of Love’s glory, we will, at times have to patiently wait, just remember: “GOD IS LOVE” whenever you find yourself asking yourself,

How Do I Love In A World Full Of Hate

My Rock!!!

My Rock!!!

The rains fall, the winds blow; things are being shaken all around,

yet my feet are firmly planted on solid ground,

my soul is deeply rooted in Truth that’s sound;

by Truth I’ve been captured, by Truth I’ve been found,

therefore, by fear, I will not be bound.

 

See, Truth picked my heart just as a thief would pick a lock,

once my heart was picked and pricked; I couldn’t turn away, I could’t throw a block,

now my name is written in The Lambs book of Life, so regardless how major or how frequent the storms; I win, because I’m among Truth’s eternal flock,

Jesus is The Way, The Truth, The Life; He’s also;

My Rock!!!

 

Psalm 62: 1-2 (KJV)

  1. Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from Him cometh my salvation.
  2. He only is my Rock and my Salvation; He is my Defense; I shall not be greatly moved

Jeremiah 18:3-6 (KJV)

3) Then I went down to the potter’s house, and behold, he wrought a work on the wheels.

4) And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.

5) Then the word of the Lord came to me saying,

6) O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? Saith the Lord. Behold as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.

In The Potter’s Hands!!!

I was marred by sin, inconsistent, inadequate and incomplete,

though I thought I was winning, I knew no defeat.

I was all caught up in the enemy’s trickery, deception and lies,

I had a different world view, I perceived life naturally; completely closed were my spiritual eyes.

Even then my God had His hands on me,

reshaping, remolding, preparing me.

He is far from done, but my God has wrought a work deep down in my soul,

I have a new sense of purpose, pleasing my God is now my only goal.

Even before the foundation of the Earth was laid; for you, and for me, God had victorious plans,

so, through the sunshine, through the rain,

I will remain

In The Potter’s Hands!!!

He’s Worthy!!!

He’s Worthy!!!

 

My Lord is worthy of all my praise,

the darkness of my night is being overtaken by “The Light”

and I once again have hope for better days.

I have a strong peace within,

I know that I am His though I sometime transgress, sometimes I sin,

I know that my Heavenly Father, through Christ, has already provided a way for me to enter in;

therefore,

 

He’s Worthy!!!

 

He is “The Way”, so I follow hard after Him even when I can’t see,

He’s there listening to my prayer, hearing my plea,

from all bondage He made it possible for me to break free.

He is my God, I am His son,

for He judge me through Jesus blood, not by the wrong that I’ve done

it’s only through That Mighty, Sacrificial Blood of The Lamb that I can declare this game of life to be already won;

this is why,

 

He’s Worthy!!!

 

And praise Him is what I’ll do,

not “Just” in the good times, but I’m praising Him in whatever mess I may have to go through,

because in a world full of falsehood and deception I know that to the very end, it’s my Lord who will remain true.

He kept me when I couldn’t keep myself,

He has shown me; in “Him” I’m already rich, without the wealth,

but it’s only when I decided to take my Bible off the shelf

that The Spirit of my Lord began to speak to me,

revealing things, spiritually,

one of those things being the simple fact;

 

He’s Worthy!!!
