Dear Precious Friends,
On this wonderful Wednesday because God has given us a new day.. I am thinking of the incredible truth of this post... In His Presence is fullness of joy... Gaze upon the beauty of the Lord!
One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple.
We just have to capture the thought immediately when it's not on God and His promises... and on our circumstances...(doubt, fear, anxiety, despair, oppression.... whatever it is!) How do we do this? Have God's promises printed out and put your name in each of them as you pray these truths over your life or the circumstance of person's life... or put whoever you are praying for in the scripture and the strength of God's word will take you out of your pit... Listen to Worship Music...
My go to song is Waymaker and I cry out all of God's promises in that song:
Waymaker, miracle worker
Promise keeper, light in the darkness
My God, that is who You are
Waymaker, miracle worker
You are here, touching every heart
I worship You, I worship You.
Here is the song in case you need the link...
I challenge you this day to immediately take any thought that isn't of God... any worry, fear, anxiety.. take that thought captive and do what scripture says: Think about these things:
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things. Phil 4:8
We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Cor 10:5
AMEN AND AMEN!!!
God’s presence is real, full of love, and completely transformational. It takes what is broken and brings healing. It takes what is lost and guides us to our rightful place in the Father. It satisfies the weary, brings light to the darkness, and pours out the refreshing rain of God’s love on the dryest, deepest parts of our soul. Scripture contains story after story of God coming down to meet God’s children where they are, and our heavenly Father has the same heart for us as he did them. He longs to make the reality of his presence known to us. He longs to refresh us with his nearness. We are created for encountering God, and we will never be satisfied until we continually live in the experience for which we were created
Please share what you do when you start to go down the slippery slope of doubt, fear, anxiety and how you turn it around!!
God's promises are YES AND AMEN!!!
Have a beautiful day and remember to wear green!!! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
