Choosing my battles wisely

β€œI will go before you and level the exalted places, I will break in pieces the doors of bronze and cut through the bars of iron” Isaiah 45:2.

Learning to use wisdom; Choosing my battles well. Being mindful; God is on my side. My steps ordained by the Master, everything in line–according to His perfect will for my life. Confidently approaching each new obstacle–believing the victory is already mine. Not in my own strength but in He who goes before me and behind. πŸ’™

God

God did it!

“From six troubles He will deliver you, Even in seven evil will not touch you” Job 5:19.

Dear Heavenly Father,

I want to take a moment to thank you Lord for always being attentive to my cry; amid pain & suffering you remind me the victory is already mine. Once again you rescued me from the evil schemes of the enemy. I will live to tell of your goodness, love and great works. May I find favor in your eyes all of the days of my life…when people question and wonder how I was able to reach so high, I will humbly answer…God did it!……..it was not I. ❀️

When God says…No!

And David said to his servants, β€œIs the child dead?” They said, β€œHe is dead.” Then David got up from the ground-washed himself, put on lotions, and changed his clothes. He went to the Tabernacle and worshiped the LORD. Samuel 19:20.

Heavenly Father,

Help us to be content with your no...and understand that your answers may not always be a yes. Regardless you are a good father–and we trust that you know what is best. May we praise & worship in the midst of pain and heartache because we know that with these actions you are pleased. Let us not look back, or to the sides, but continue running this race with endurance towards the prize of running into the arms of our savior Jesus Christ!

There is great joy and hope in His…No. Even on our worst days–He is still in control! πŸ’™

“Then David comforted his wife Bathsheba, and he went to her and lay with her. So she gave birth to a son, and they named him Solomon. Now the LORD loved the child” 2 Samuel 12:24.

God

Who do you live to please?

“Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ” Galatians 1:10.

I am guilty of having fallen into the trap of becoming a “people pleaser”. Having found favor and sudden promotion within the workplace, I found myself knee-deep into the trap of slaving for man and seeking the approval of superiors. But I thank God for His grace–that even through pain He would remind me that I am to labor first for the Lord–for He is the one who opens and closes doors. And with each new opportunity He provides, I am on an assignment to save lives. Lord, help me to shine brightly wherever I go–that through my life–you others will come to know…

“Don’t put your confidence in powerful people; there is no help for you there” Psalm 146:3.

God

Jesus…all I need is you!

“You have given me greater joy than those who have abundant harvests of grain and new wine” Psalm 4:7, NLT.

Here I am again Lord–once more, knocking on heavens doors. Unable to allow even a day to go by without seeking your face and feeling your presence by my side. This agape love is deep, unlike any other love I’ve known before. No longer holding onto the rejection and pain of the past. If people chose to leave, let them do so–where the Lord leads not everyone can go. Time to let it all go and focus on all that you have called me to do. Even if I am left standing all alone–all is well, because Jesus…all I need is you!

God

What if I fly?

…being fully convinced that all that He has promised, He will do. Romans 4:21.

Because He has been so faithful in the past, there is no room to doubt He will be faithful to me now. Fearless faith–hearing His voice in a new way. Always ready to step out and Do it Afraid; In my weakness, He is my strength! πŸ¦‹πŸŒ΅πŸŽ

God

Set Free πŸ¦‹

“In my distress I prayed to the LORD, and the LORD answered me and set me free” Psalm 118:5.

Feeling set free and alive; thanking you LORD for it is you who opens doors. So many whispers, so many voices–the enemy relentlessly attempting to bring confusion to the mind. Familiar tactics, not too surprised, I have been here many times before. But in my distress–I cry out onto the LORD and press on forward towards the promised land. The LORD is my vindicator; He upholds me with His right hand. Too many blessings at stake, no time to entertain the whispers and the lies. Pressing on forward in anticipation of all the promises He will fulfill in His time. LORD for your glory may I shine where ever you place me–today, tomorrow and every day of my life. ✨

God

His Beloved ❀️


“Those who are not my people I will call my people, and the one who was not loved, I will call my beloved” Romans 9:25.

Heavenly Father,

I pray that every person reading this post today will no longer hold onto any past or current pain, rejection or disappointment. Help us to understand that every obstacle we encounter is merely a stepping stone used to strengthen our character and mold us into the men and women you created us to be. Let us feel confident in knowing we are sons and daughters of the King of Kings! He looks upon the unloved–and calls us His Beloved! πŸ’œ πŸ‘‘β€οΈ

God

Do it Afraid!

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go” Joshua 1:9.

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for loving me the way that you do. Your love overwhelms me and brings me to my knees. Who but you alone Lord could be so gracious and attentive to all of my needs? Thank you for lifting and believing in me when I am unable to believe in myself–help me Lord to represent you well. Where you lead, I will follow. In fear, I will step out in faith–and Do it Afraid! πŸ¦‹πŸŒ΅πŸŽ
