What does the Word say?


  • Has someone stolen from you?
  • Has someone cheated you out of what's owing to you?
  • Did someone scam you?

God says:  
Joel 2 v 25:  And I will restore or replace for you the years that the locust has eaten...
  • Has someone lied to you?
  • Has someone lied about you?
  • Has someone attacked your character?
  • Has someone spread false and hurtful rumours about you?

God says:  
Jer 51 v 36(a):  Therefore thus says the Lord: Behold I will plead your cause and take vengeance for you.

Gen 50 v 20:  But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save...


My encouragement to you is that God's word deals with every and anything you could possibly being going through!  The Word is God and God is the Word!  You can trust Him and His word.

God bless
Tracy

  2. I needed to hear this. Thanks. Reputation is what people think of you (through gossip, lies etc). But character is what God knows about you.

  3. I really like your straightforward thoughts and encouragement, Tracy. I was reading in 1 Samuel today about the times David refused to take revenge on King Saul. Thanks for linking up to B&BB.

  16. It's so sad that our reputations are often more manufactured than real, but we know that it is simply not enough without the character to accompany it! What He thinks is most important, and our goal should be a good name with a desire to grow in a holy and righteous character pleasing to Him.

    Great post Tracy!
    Blessings sweet friend,

  22. Great post, Tracy. I love the Genesis verse - when I think of all Joseph endured, yet he sitll forgave his brothers and saw God's hand through it all.
