Trust God and be steadfast in him
“I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In the world you will have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world.” [My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding.]” — John 16:33.
Despite what we’re going through, be encouraged! It may not feel good but be encouraged! God knows what’s going on even when we wonder about a certain thing. God has already worked things out on our behalf! He has us in the palm of his hands and no one and nothing can pluck us out! I pray that as you read this, you feel assured that all is well! Please FEEL and KNOW that God’s peace surpasses ALL understanding! May it overtake you even now and saturate your heart! I declare and decree that you will rest in the peace of God! I speak peace to your very being! Especially your mind! I command your mind to be at peace! God has already spoken, so let your answer be amen! Concerning everything, even when you don’t understand a thing, say and believe it to be amen! Proverbs 3:5-6 commands us to trust in the Lord with all of our heart, lean not to our own understanding but in all of our ways acknowledge him and he shall direct our paths! No matter what it looks or feels like, take solace in the fact that God has always kept you and if the truth be told, he has kept you when you may not have wanted to be kept! Or am I just talking about me?
God sees where we are and knows all about us. In the spirit, I hear God saying, I had to take you through some things in order to teach you and cause my glory to come forth! I had to allow some of the crushing, beating, pressing and shaking! Now, your oil can flow! You have new oil and new wineskins! Glory to God!
Everything that is going on in your life, it’s all necessary because God is getting the glory! As you trust him and submit to his leadership, he’s going to elevate you into places that you never dreamed of! You will be held accountable to a greater responsibility! But know that God is with you and he’ll lead you as you continue to seek him! You’ve been wondering why you’ve been under the degree of attack that you have? The greatest answer is because God’s mighty, righteous hand is upon you and he’s elevating you to lead! Go forth! I pray that you are not afraid of the faces you will see and the things that you are instructed to do by God. The Holy Spirit will lead and guide you! Just know that God has brought you to this place in your life!
Trust him and be steadfast in him! “With all this going for us, my dear, dear friends, stand your ground. And don’t hold back. Throw yourselves into the work of the Master, confident that nothing you do for him is a waste of time or effort.”1 Corinthians 15:58 (the Message Bible)
Stand your ground and don’t give up!
