Now that you love the Lord, the enemy will do everything possible to hinder God’s work in your life. You cannot advance in the kingdom of God without a struggle. But no weapon formed against us shall prosper. The battle is not mine. The battle is the Lord’s. This is our year to get it all back.
God said that He would restore all the years that the enemy has eaten away in our lives. Prepare yourself to get it all back. God has promised to make it up to us before it’s over. Help is on the way.
Don’t be discouraged because of your storm. The storm is pushing everything toward change. You have been in a rut long enough. You’ve been in that bad relationship long enough. You have been misused long enough. Be encouraged. A new thang is on the way.
Jesus hung on a cross and He prayed for his enemies. In three days He came out of His trouble. If someone cuts you off in traffic pray for them. If someone is plotting against you pray for them. Start praying for your enemies and it won’t be long and He will bring you out.
Paul said that faith works by love. God cannot answer your prayers unless you are walking in love. When you let go of the things that people have done to you, your faith will start working. Let it go and love will open doors you can’t open.
Jesus said, “Don’t let your heart be troubled and don’t be afraid.” In other words STOP worrying. Put your trust in Him and He will take care pf you. I will fear no evil for God is with me.
Failure is not the end when you learn from your mistakes. When you trust God in spite of it all, He uses it as a stepping stone to your future. Yes I’ve failed in the past, but that was then and this is now. I am more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus.
Why do ships sink? Because the stuff on the outside gets on the inside. Never let the negative stuff around you get inside you. Tell the storm, “I hear you knocking but you can’t come in.” I will trust in the Lord with all my heart. He’s working it out.
Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do but you never move forward. God tells us to cast all our worries on Him and He will take care of it. Pray over everything and worry over nothing. I’m through worrying about things I can’t control.
When someone has a harsh past they tend to walk in fear. The enemy uses fear to cause us to fail. Fear keeps us from trusting God the way we should. “My God has not given me a spirit of fear but power love and a sound mind.” If I walk it out He will work it out.
