A Two-Step Process

Psalm 37 3.jpg

Verse of the Day: Psalm 37:3

Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.

God’s promises are often conditional. In other words, you have to do your part and God will do His part. There is a two-step process to receive this promise from God. The Lord will take care of all your needs but you need to trust in Him and do good. Notice the verse says “and” do good, not “or” do good. While you are waiting and trusting on God to fulfill His promise have faith. Moreover, do good, always keeping his commandments and doing the things that are pleasing to the Him.

10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 7:  Thankful for God’s Blessings

2 Corinthians 9 11 b.jpg

Verse of the Day:  2 Corinthians 9:11

You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.

I am thankful for all of God’s blessings. This year was a tough year for our family. My husband was diagnosed with stage II colon cancer. By the grace of God, he is now cancer free, but there were times we didn’t know how we were going to pay the bills or put food on the table. When we couldn’t see a way, God made a way. He touched the hearts of many to help us along the way and for that we are forever grateful. Our faith was made stronger with each and every act of generosity. If we trust in God, He will always provide for us and He even makes a way for us to be a blessing to others. God blesses us so we can generously pour out our blessings to others, which results in thanksgiving to God.

Philippians 4 19

Verse of the Day:  Philippians 4:19

And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

If you’ve never gone through something so difficult that you can’t see how you’re going to make it through and you can’t see the light at the end of tunnel these may just feel like words on paper. But I’m here to tell you from personal experience that God will see you through hardships and He will provide for your needs if you trust Him with all of your heart. Turn to the Lord, He is the Light of the world, He is a way maker. It may not be in a way you were expecting but God will provide enough to meet your needs.  Sometimes God uses others to bless you and at other times He may ask you to be a blessing to someone else in need.

Depend on God

Isaiah 40 29.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Isaiah 40:29

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.

 

Today’s society teaches that independence is the goal but what we need most is to be dependent on the Lord.  If we learn to trust and hope in God, he will give us strength when we’re weary and power when we’re weak. You can depend on God, his power, promises and provisions.
