If God Allowed It!!!

Whatever come my way each day is allowed by God for His purpose, however, His purpose; my finite mind is not always able to comprehend; but then, my faith kicks in, which enables me to stand as the tree that’s planted by the river, not easily broken, not easy to bend

If God Allowed It!!!

Whatever come my way each day, I know I can bare, because I know, through it all my God is pulling me closer to Himself, I know He’s not trying to destroy me, I know that, more than anyone else, my God care

Whatever come my way each day He’s right here with me in the midst thereof, reminding me: my struggle “IS NOT” with flesh and blood, and in Him lies my strength and ability to soar high above

Every storm, every trial, every tribulation, every agitation, all have upon them my Father’s acclamation

For my spiritual growth and maturity, they’re tailor made to fit, and The Word of God calls me: “More” than a conqueror , so whatever come my way each day, I know I can conquer,

If God Allowed It!!!

For Me!!!

For Me!!!

It was for me that, from Heaven to earth my Savior came, He’s Lord of lord’s, King of king’s, He is “The Christ” and Jesus is His name

Though He was perfect in ALL His ways, He suffered the harsh penalty of my sins and transgression, He left behind His Holy Spirit to empower me to overcome the spirits of loneliness, isolation and depression

He lead me step by step, taking me from glory, to glory, to glory; before my mother and father even knew one another, my God knew my name, He had already began to write my story

I am His, He is mine, so my victory rest, not so much in what I do, but in what my Lord has already done, it’s through that Agape Love of my Heavenly Father and His only begotten Son that I can BOLDLY confess: the game of life, for me, is already won

So come; taste and see, my God is no respecter of persons, meaning: He will do for you what He has done

For Me!!!

Step By Step!!!

My God has brought me a long way from where I started, mountains have been moved, and sea’s have parted

Though, to reach that place of destiny, it seems I still have a long road ahead, and discouragement creeps in when I set my gaze on the finish line; therefore I focus on my very next step instead

Meditating on The Word of God continually, so that, in Gods Word my steps may be ordered one at a time, it’s God’s Word through which I’m empowered to move forward regardless how steep the climb, even when it seem as though the climb has turned into a deep decline

My God can use any and every situation to make it work for my good, there’s lessons to be learned even when I fall short, when I don’t do as I should

When I think I see a short cut, and impatiently step off of God’s divine path, though it doesn’t take me long to do the math, to realize I’ve stepped in a direction leading to God’s wrath

Then I step back in line, with patience, and a renewed will to endure, knowing that the promises within God’s Word are true, and in The Word of God, I can stand sure

Knowing; my God is always on time, He’s never late, and He never allow anything to go to waste, He uses even the blood, sweat and tears that fall upon my plate

My God somehow, someway, miraculously use even my deepest pains for my own good, while simultaneously developing an eternal smile of glory on my face, see, I must be totally broken, which brings about a sense of humility, which allows The Spirit of my God to lead me into that destined place

Everyday there’s a spiritual battle going on within me, and everyday I’m realizing more and more that my enemy’s promises are not fulfilling at all, but rather hollow, and I get better at, not just hearing that still, small voice of God, but possessing The Holy Spirit’s power to follow

Step By Step!!!

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!!!

Acquitted!!!

Acquitted!!!

I’m free, I’m free, I’m free, born a sinner full of transgressions and iniquity, but I’ve been acquitted through the Blood of The Lamb which was shed on Calvary

This sacrificial action of my Lord and Savior made it possible for me to experience a new birth, I’ve accepted Jesus Christ as The Way, The Truth, The Life and The One in whom lies my worth

Though it’s by the serpent’s poisonous, venomous attraction to sin that I was bitten and injected, now, it’s in the Hands of Him who spoke the entire universe into existence that I’m being shaped, molded, perfected

Yes; I’ve done almost everything under the sun, I confess, I admit it, this is why I give all praise, honor and glory to my Lord Jesus Christ because it’s through His Righteous, sinless Blood that I’ve been,

Acquitted!!!

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

Seasons Of The Unknown!!!

 

Life has many seasons, warm and dry seasons, cold and wet seasons, seasons when we know exactly where we’re going, and seasons of the unknown, It’s the unknown seasons that are the hardest of them all, when we can’t see because of the thick fog, we stumble, sometimes even fall, the blustery winds blow when we feel most uncovered, wide open, no protection, no wall, the feeling of hopelessness begin to set in, then, we call out to God, and seemingly, He’s not even answering our call

We cry out: Lord, how long? Lord, what did I do wrong? I really need You Lord, because in this season I’m not feeling very strong

Lord, I really need to know, from here, what do I do, where do I go? and breakthrough still don’t show

I guess this is what faith is all about, so it’s in faith that I will stand as a deeply rooted tree, I will not doubt, digging deeper within to find strength, so praise to my Lord I can sing and shout, I refuse to mope, I refuse to pout

Trusting, believing that even in this season God’s glory “WILL” be shown, knowing, that through it all my Lord is still sitting on His Throne, and I’m His, He is mine even when the enemy refuse to leave me alone, even in the,

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

I Won’t Be Moved!!!

 

Here I stand at the foot of The Cross,

standing as obedient as I know how, though I’ve experienced much loss,

my losses were nothing more than setups leading me into total dependence on my Lord and Savior, “The Big Boss”.

 

I have learned to leave every situation in the hands of my God, then watch Him, out of the bad; manifest good,

in the most deadly attacks from the enemy, it’s faith in my God’s grace, mercy, favor and agape love that I have stood,

I can’t turn back now, but I wouldn’t even if I could.

 

This is where I find peace in the midst of turmoil,

this is where I learn to plant my seed in Kingdom soil,

this is where I find rest after my hard labor and toil.

 

This is where I have found forgiveness for my past, present and future sin,

this is where I regain my assurance that, in the end;

“I Win”.

 

So here I stand at the foot of The Cross;

and I

 

Won’t Be Moved!!!
