Fear, Faith, or Pride (Which do You Follow)

I’m not ready. I’m not finished.
I’m yet incomplete.
I still need another lesson, before I move my feet.

I’m ready. I’m willing.
I’m letting faith guide my feet.
I don’t know it all; but I’m prepared.
I know that in Him, I’m complete.

I’m ready. I’m the man.
No one can compete.
I don’t need to plan. I’m so grand.
I’m the best you’ll ever see.

Too Good For You??

I don’t want to give the impression that God works like a genie. He doesn’t; But like any parent He takes pleasure in giving good gifts to His children.

Don’t sell yourself short by believing that something is too good for you to have.
Don’t fall into the thinking that it’s out of your league.

No, You’re a child of The King!
God wants you to have good things!

Ask Him about it. Acknowledge Him. Prepare yourself. And Go after it!

When it comes to pass you’ll know that it was all God! You won’t be able to take any of the credit! 😊

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!
(‭Matthew‬ ‭7‬:‭7-11‬ NKJV)

No Fear in Love (Real Love)

The fear is that when you’ve given 100%, the other person will only give 50%. That when they’ve promised to catch you, they’ll just let you fall. So we stay guarded, locking away our heart, not letting anyone close, thinking we’re being smart.

We figure It’s safer to keep to ourselves, not spending the energy to get to involved. Yet Real love takes risk. Real love gives all. Real love steps into the unknown. Real love risks the fall.

To love like Jesus is the ultimate goal. Perfect us, refine us, like diamonds made from coal. Lord draw us near; Til your love casts out all fear. Let our love be perfected; let us stay near.

Remain

My Purpose is not lost in hardship. So my Hope won’t be lost in pain. My Faith endures the storms. My Worship rides the waves.

My God He never fails. So I call upon His name. He runs and He rescues me. His Love remains the same.

I believe God created the universe. I believe God created all I see. That should leave no shadow or doubt; that God can surely take care of me.

God orchestrates my good days as well as my bad. He walks with me, He talks with me; So In Him, I’ll be glad.

God With Us

My King and my Savior. My Friend and my Redeemer. My Source and my Strength. My Hope till the end.
I find rest in Your presence; peace in Your hands, life in your words, strength in your arms.
I can face any challenge. Defeat any giant, I can climb any mountain, because I am confident; I am sure, I’m fully convinced, that You are Immanuel. You are “God With Us”

Don’t let fears, trials, or storms make you forget His name. Immanuel! God Is With Us!

Wisdom & Opportunities

God’s wisdom is infinite, but our opportunities are finite. We need to regularly seek Godly wisdom in order to be able to effectively embrace the opportunities that come our way. Yes, God is merciful, but second chances are never guaranteed. So, Make the most of your opportunities. Grab hold of Godly wisdom, and have faith and believe that it will take you to places you’ve never dreamed possible.

Desires vs Idols

Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. (Psalms 37:4 NKJV)

I usually don’t share(at least not on The internet) what God is doing in me personally. But I think others can relate to this…

“God has promised to give us the desires of our heart; not the idols of our heart.” That’s the sentence that has been stirring in me this past week.
Personally, I have to be careful not to let the things I want in life become idols. How can you tell when your desire has become an idol? Is it all you can think about? Do you become worried and feel anxious when you think about NOT having that.” Do you become all consumed when planning or talking about it? If so; it’s probably an idol.
One thing God reminded me of, is that everything we can desire beside him is temporal. Careers, business plans, houses, cars, and relationships, while these are all good things to pursue; they are all temporal.
The only relationship that is eternal is our relationship with God. Everything we can want and need is found in seeking God first. It’s a fine line between an innocent desire and an idol. Lord Help Us.
