I am truly convinced that the glory of God will just take the world by storm in all nations including this nation. I am also convinced that this nation will be on fire for Christ. You may call me crazy, but I call it faithful and true. I believe that we will see the manifestations of not only our prayers, but the prayers of our mothers, grandmothers, great-grandmothers and of several generations back!
God says, “Your tragedy will only last for so long, you just don’t know what I have on the other side for all nations!”
My God is awesome 🙂
Instead of crying to God wondering why the little that you have is slipping through your fingers, give Him what’s left in your hands and your heart!
Don’t run after things that He doesn’t want in your life anymore. Remember we are only dust so whatever is around us making our lives dusty needs to be purified to help us continue our life journey.
I remember it was some time ago during my first semester of college and I was just walking around the house when this small yet powerful voice came to me and said, “Do you trust me?” It really caught me off guard so bad that I stopped and just paused for a second. Then the voice came to me and said again, “Do you trust me?” I immediately knew that it was God speaking to me but it was something that I was not willing to face at that time.
When I was growing up, there were a whole lot of deaths in my family. It all started with my maternal grandmother when I was five years old. Nobody had to explain to me what death was because I already knew at such a young age. From then on aunts, uncles, cousins passed away year after year ranging in three or sometimes more throughout the years. Thank God it was not a parent or sibling because honestly I don’t know how I would have handled it. Anyways, my trust in God was at a minimum. Sadly, I trusted Him to a point and then I thought in my little mind of mine that I would take it from there. I know that was wrong now but at that time I was too afraid to trust him. I felt that if I did trust Him everything would be taken away. This was something that no one actually knew about I should have told my parents but I didn’t so I had to deal with the consequences on my own growing up. Overall, by the time I graduated from high school my trust in God was at like 5%. I was petrified of what He would do to my family. I was so afraid that He would take someone away again and I felt like I just could not let that happen to me again. That night when He asked me if I trust I knew with everything that I didn’t but I was afraid to say, “I know you are God but I don’t trust you.” So instead, I did not answer I mean this is God we are talking about not just a childhood friend deciding what yogurt to get you. So I knew that this was something I needed to face but never knew when I would face it. So that night I knew I had to work on that. That one question changed my perspective because I knew that I need to trust him.
Throughout the next three months or so, God truly taught me about trust. He would comfort me and teach me things through the verses in the bible. And the more I prayed and gave more of myself to him, the more I was starting to trust him. The more I felt safe the more I gave more and more to him. By the end of the year, my heart was on fire for Him. I could not let go of all of the awesome love that he just poured in my spirit. I would rush to my room just to spend more time with him and to pray. I would fast more to have a deeper connection. I gave him everything my all from everything I was and everything that I have. I just couldn’t resist. And now I can say that my trust in Him is overflowing like never before.
Don’t be afraid to let go. There are too many things that the devil wants to use through you to try to separate you from God. He wants you to be afraid of him. He wants you to back away from God. But God is waiting for you. He wants you to know that you can trust him. He loves you. God can comfort you and love you like no one else. You are his child. He loves you endlessly. So God says, “Will you trust me?”
Will you trust him?
God is looking for children that are starving for Him. He is looking for people that are so hungry for His glory and His presence. His presence needs to be tapped into. There are so many people that just don’t know what it’s like to tap into His abundant glory. God is waiting to elevate His children to the next level. Are you ready?
Just like someone that is so hungry that they start getting a pain in their stomach. We need to be just that hungry. We need to feast on His word day and night to get fed. We need to pray so hard that we forget what day it is. We need to tap, dive, and rest in Him so that He gives us an identity that the world cannot give us. When we focus on Him others see Him through us. Lives can be changed. Hope can be brought to the hopeless. We can tap into His presence to help miracles take place for so many others that need it. People need us and it starts with us tapping into his presence and constantly running after him. God says, “I’m right here waiting on you my child!”
“But God, I don’t feel anything. WHY!?!
Are you just in a numb season of your life. Do you just feel like you just don’t know and kinda don’t care anymore. I’m here to tell you that it is okay. God is not mad at you just because you feel nothing. It’s okay. There’s so much going on right now. And I want to encourage you to keep looking up to God today. Yes, we can always go to our rooms and close the door and just never want to leave, but do you want to live your life that way. Do you want to think about all the stuff you did this week and say, “I was in my room, depressed.” I want you to tell God how thankful you are. You are have breath in your body. You can actually read this blog right now. You are ALIVE! You are here for another day. There was a child who did not make it. There was someone who did not get a chance to see there family today and love them. There was someone who did not get a chance just to kiss their child one more time. You have the chance to do that right now! God has pulled you through so if you don’t think that He will not pull you through again reflect on everything right now. You need your faith. Ask God and tell Him how you feel. Reflect on your life. He wants you to. He will pull you through. It is already done you know. You just have to trust and keep working. Are you going to give up or go? There are only two options.
I love you and Jesus loves you so much more!
God says, “Those tears are tears of intercession. You may not know what you are crying about because it is my Holy Spirit cleansing you of all of the things that you don’t need to get to the next level in my presence. After that season is over, you will see what I have prepared you for. Those tears mean so much more than what you think. Those tears are my tears. They belong to me. When my Holy Spirit intercedes don’t worry or interfere. I know what I am doing. Do you trust me?”
For those of you that just want to crawl in the corner and cry and never leave. God says that this is for you.
“My sweet child, I want you to know that I love you so very much. My son came to this world for you. He spoke the words that came straight from me to help you and to keep you. I left my Comforter down here for you. When my son Jesus was on the cross and people were saying all kinds of things to Him, just remember that He did it for you. This is for the times when everyone looks at you and wants to spit at you, or curse at you and beat you down. Just know that that one moment and one time that Jesus died for you was all that was needed to save you my sweet child. My darling, every time I look at you, abundant grace covers you. I am not angry with you. I love you so much, I’m not angry at you long. You go through those tough times because I am testing you. Those moments of consequences are there to help you and to strengthen you. I am here for you. I will never let you go. There is nothing that anyone or anything can do to separate you from my love. You are my child. And I will never let you go!”
My God is a wonderful God. And He truly deserves every praise and glory manifested into the atmosphere.
Is God telling to do something? Are you making excuses? Think about it. Think real hard. Whatever God is telling you to do, go for it. He won’t leave you hanging! He will never leave you nor forsake you, he will be right there. You have the power and strength to do it. Just trust him. You are talented enough. You are not too old or too young! You can do it! Go for it. God is watching you. Don’t let life pass you by without following the call that God has set for you in your life! Spread God’s love one heart at a time through your calling, gifts, and talents. Go!!!!!
“Peace be unto you”
“Lo I am with you always even until the end of the world.”
Peace is a symbol of the presence of God. Do you want peace in your life? Step into the presence of God and it will cover you like a quilt of love from head to toe bringing happiness and joy upon your life. Jesus brought peace, the Holy Spirit brings peace. Do you want peace? Worship the Lord, bow before his throne of grace and glory, meditate on His word. The word states that when everything passes away the word will stay forever. The word will definitely bring peace upon your life if you feast on it day and night. Feed your spiritual body just as much as you feed your physical body. Trust me you won’t regret it. So I will ask one last time, do you want peace? Tap into the presence of God. Trust me, once you tap in, you will want to stay forever.
