TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART! Posted 062417 @ 2.22pm.
God is looking for those who are seeking His face, not only His gifts, and TRUSTING IN HIM. THE FATHER IS ASKING HIS CHILDREN TODAY: DO YOU TRUST ME? We are all sinners saved by Grace. We all deserve to be burning in hell right now, but Praise be to God, we are not! Thank You Father for Your SON. Thank You, Jesus, for dying for my sins. I give You praise, glory, honor and thanks. Are you trusting God today? Are you resting peacefully under the shadow of the Almighty? Are you walking by faith and not by sight? Hasn't our Father earned your trust by now?
It is written in Proverbs 3.5: Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. It is written in Psalms 118.8: It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. It is written in Psalms 71.1: In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion. It is written in Psalms 91.2: I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. It is written in Psalms 118.9: It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes. Beloved, we must TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL OUR HEARTS, AND LEAN NOT ON OUR OWN UNDERSTANDING. STOP trying to figure everything out. STOP trying to put the puzzle pieces together. Let our Father put the pieces in position, in His perfect timing, and you will see His Glory in the masterpiece. God wants to put His Glory on display, but He is patiently waiting for us to get out of the way and let Him.
We are called to be heaven on earth. We are called to preach the Gospel, live the Gospel, and to imitate Christ. We are called to die to self and let Him transform us into the image of His SON. We are called to trust God, love God with every fiber of our being, and love our neighbor as ourself. God said that vengeance belongs only to Himself. Forgive, so that you may be forgiven. He wants us to imitate His SON, and to love one another. He wants us to pray for, encourage and edify one another. We should be moving from glory to glory, no matter what we are going through, and no matter who or what is coming against us. Our Father in heaven is calling His children to TRUST HIM! He has done so much for us, how can we ever doubt Him? I pray the Holy Ghost will bring to your remembrance all that He has done in the past, to remind you to TRUST HIM! Don't you remember when He saved you, helped you, blessed you, provided for you, delivered you, healed you, protected you, gave you favor and opened doors? Make this day a day of rememberance, and go visit the Father, and pour out your love for Him. Make today our Heavenly Father's Day. After all, this is the day that He has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it. Pour out your heart and your love all over our Heavenly Father. Show HIm how much you love Him. Tell Him. Thank Him. Delight yourself in Him, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.
Please allow me to share a testimony. Years ago, before I even had a personal relationship with Jesus, God did an amazing thing for me. I was living in a hotel room, looking for work in Florida. Everything I owned, including all my clothes, were in a storage unit. I was going through a lot at the time, but one of things weighing heavily on my heart was the fact that I only had days before my storage unit payment was due, or I was going to lose everything I owned. It was the Fourth of July weekend. I was broke, busted and disgusted. Everyone was outside at the pool, having a wonderful time. I turned the television on and found a Christian channel. There was a woman sitting in front of a piano, worshipping God and praying for people. It wasn’t a group of people or a church, just one woman at her piano, worshipping God and praying for all who were watching. It was so precious and it blessed me so much. I had never heard of her or seen her before, or since, and I cannot remember her name. God used this woman to bless me so much that day and lift me up from my despair. I found a blank postcard in the drawer beside the Bible and I decided to send her a postcard to Thank Her. I simply told her that I saw her show that day and she blessed my socks off, and I asked her to pray for me. I didn’t give her any details about all that I was going through. I simply thanked her and asked her for prayer. I left the postcard at the front desk of the hotel and asked them to mail it for me. The contact address was not a ministry address, but a television station address.
A week later, my sister picked me up from the bus station in Alabama and took me to my post office box. When we got to the post office, there was an envelope. The return address was from a television station in Florida. When I opened the envelope, there was a check and a prayer card. The check was the exact amount I needed for my storage unit. There was a note from that woman stating that my postcard had sat on her desk for days. Even though I had not given her any details but simply asked her to pray for me, she stated that the Holy Ghost told her to send me a check. She also had all of her Christian prayer warriors sign their names on a card and stated that they were all praying for me. We saw a true MIRACLE that day. It would be different if I had mentioned what I needed specifically when I asked for prayer, but I didn’t mention anything other than the fact that I was blessed by her music ministry, and I asked for prayer for myself and my family. By the way, when is the last time you heard of someone RECEIVING a check from a ministry or especially from a television station? WOW! GLORY TO GOD! ONLY GOD!
Within weeks, I got a job, got an apartment and God continued to bless me and provide for me, supernaturally. GLORY TO GOD! Over the next several months, I began receiving envelopes, from all over the country. Inside of those envelopes were five dollar bills and ten dollar bills, wrapped up in blank sheets of paper, with no return address. I always testified to people how God sent me cash via angels, but it never occurred to me until this day, that the Holy Ghost used a total stranger to change my life forever. Of course, I had to be obedient to His voice to write the Thank You card, but that one moment changed my life forever. Also, I just want to mention that since it was the Fourth of July, I had been watching Rod Parsley’s July Camp Meeting in my hotel room, and I sowed a very small gift, but it was all I had. God put it on my heart to sow that small seed.
Blessings follow obedience. I’m not mentioning this to tell you to sow into a specific pastor’s ministry, but I am saying that I obeyed the Lord and sowed a seed the moment that He put it on my heart to, and I had very little seed to sow. It’s not a coincidence the Holy Ghost put it on my heart to share this word to you today, because the Fourth of July is coming up! This happened many years ago and honestly, I had forgotten about it until the Holy Ghost brought it to my remembrance this morning. I know His Word does not return void, so I know this word is for YOU, TODAY!!!
The Lord is wanting His precious children to TRUST HIM, no matter what. He WILL lead you, guide you, and order your steps. He will send you help from the Sanctuary. God is so Good, all the time. He promised that when the Righteous cry out, He will answer. No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. In Jesus’ Mighty Name, I cancel and destroy every spirit of worry, doubt, stress, anxiety, frustration, impatience, and every hindering spirit. I ask You, Father, to deny permission to every spirit sent to affect, afflict, intimidate, aggravate, and irritate Your Children today. I pray for whoever is reading this right now, that they will turn their worry into praise. Father, show Your children a token for good today. Let them see Your glory. Let them know that You are real, that You love them unconditionally, and that NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOU! I ask You, Father, in Jesus’ Name, to open the windows of heaven and pour out such great blessings over Your children today, that they cannot contain it, and then I ask You to give them larger containers. I ask You to loose Deuteronomy 28 blessings over Your children today, and draw them nigh unto Yourself. I ask You to pour Your love out on them so great that it overwhelms them. Bless Your children today, Lord.
Beloved, God is good all the time. He sees everything. He knows everything. He is looking for those who will simply trust Him, like a child. Look to the hills from whence cometh your help. Your help comes from the Creator of heaven and earth. No matter what burdens you are carrying today, cast them all down at His feet and just love on Him. He loves you so very much and there is nothing He wouldn’t do for you. Tell Him how much you love Him. Thank Him for His mercies that are new every morning. Praise Him for His matchless love. Give Him the glory due His Name for His Blood, His Word and His Name. Thank Him for your salvation. Thank Him for His great love and mercies, that are new every morning. Thank the Father for the SON. Thank Jesus for dying in your place. Thank Him for His precious Holy Ghost. Thank the Holy Ghost for interceding on your behalf, with groanings that cannot be uttered. Thank Jesus for ever interceding for you. Thank the Father for all that He has done, is doing and will do. TRUST GOD. Be still and know that He is God. Nothing is impossible for Him. Cast all your cares on Him, for He cares for you. He is working all things out for your good. He is working behind the scenes on your behalf. His Angels and Ministering Spirits are warring on your behalf and working behind the scenes. He is arranging things in your favor. When you leave everything in God’s hand, the more you will see His hand in everything.
If you need healing, pray for someone else's healing. If you need a financial miracle, sow into someone who needs a financial miracle. If you are lonely, visit someone else who is lonely. If what you have in your hands is not enough to meet your need, then it is your seed. Followers of Christ are sowers of seed, whether it be financial seed, encouraging words, or simply praying for others. We all must look to our Heavenly Father, and not trust the arm of the flesh. Trusting the arm of the flesh brings a curse. Faith is the Victory. We must TRUST IN GOD!
It breaks the Father’s heart when His children don’t trust Him. He has EARNED our trust, don’t you think? I don’t know about you, but I know what He has done for me! I know that I love Him first, because He first loved me. I know that He chose to die for me, while I was lost in sin. Turn your worry into worship and just THANK HIM. You need to lay it all down, surrender your will, your life, everything to His loving, capable hands, and TRUST HIM! He cannot and He will not fail. He loves you too much to leave you where you are. The Father is calling His children today, and asking you to TRUST HIM! Let Him wrap His loving arms around you, as you abide under the shadow of the Almighty. He will make a way where there seems to be no way. He will move heaven and earth on your behalf. He will never leave you nor forsake you. He will show up. He has already dispatched His Warring Angels to war on your behalf. He is still on His Throne and He is still in charge of every detail of our lives. He controls our next breath and our next heartbeat. Remember, we are not promised tomorrow. He has given you this day. Why not give Him all of your love, with all of your spirit, soul, mind and body? Just get in His Presence and prove to Him that you love Him and you TRUST HIM! I promise, you will not regret it, and you will see His glory!
