Reminder to Self....

I am expecting this week to be tough!  Tough only if my focus gets hazy and I don't look up.  Look up to my Lord and Saviour.  The One who cares for me, the One who lifts me when I fall.  The One I need desperately this week.

So, today I am posting reminders to myself, and to anyone else out there who needs to hear this:
  • John 15 v 8:  By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit;  so you will be My disciples.  Continue to do good, continue to walk the path God has chosen for you because others WILL know you by your fruit.
  • Gen 50 v 20:  But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good....  No matter what harm someone intends for you, God will use it for your good.
  • Rom 10 v 11:  For the Scripture says, "Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame."  Therein lies the answer, BELIEVE
  • Prov 26 v 27:  Whoever digs a pit [for another man's feet] will fall into it, and he who rolls a stone [up a height to do mischief], will have it roll back on him.  That what someone tries to do to you, to harm you, will happen to them.
  • Neh 8 v 10:  Then he said to them, "Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord.  Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength."  Be joyful, relax, despite what it looks like outside there.  His joy, my strength....
  • Num 23 v 19:  God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent.  Has He said, and will He not do it?  Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?  If God said it, I must believe it for He is not a liar.
  • Isa 55 v 11:  So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.  God's word is not just words on paper, it is truth and it will be done as it is written for He says it is so.
The thing is this, if God says it, I believe it!  And it really is that simple.  There are so many examples in the bible of people, ordinary sinful people, who failed, who were not perfect, who chose to believe God's word and because of it, He lifted them up, He saved them, He did to them as His word says He would.  This is true too for those who choose not to obey or trust His word.  

I want to be one who believes.....

God bless 

ps:  To those of you who have been praying for me and my family, I want to say firstly, thank you.  And Secondly, God is going to come through in a BIG way and I cannot wait to share a praise report with you.

  9. Tracy - So burdened for you this week. Here believing.....Truth always prevails over lies. Light will ultimately outshine darkness. What is in darkness will always be exposed. And the faithful character of a man will stand firm forever, for the victory of the Lord goes before Him. I don't know many details about what's happening, but I do know God is with you. Praying for you, and standing with you in trust. Bless you my sister in Christ & may His peace that surpasses all understanding ever rest on & in you this week.
