See, What Had Happened Was….God’s Grace!

Crooked Places JoaynnOftentimes when we find ourselves in a situation that seems hopeless and we are in despair, we begin to look at our circumstances which will never change by looking at them. God is working out your situation no matter how bad it seems. Choose not to respond to your circumstance. With God, it can and will change.

The devil tries to kill your witness and wants you to think God has changed his mind about what he promised he will do. You already know. Won’t he do it? He wants you to believe nothing good will never happen. If God said it will, it’s going to happen.

God does not change. He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever. His word in heaven is settled. It is already established. Don’t listen to the lies of the devil. The enemy can never change that. God’s Word stands firm in heaven. Believe that!

If you were to think about the many sleepless nights you endured because of worry and fear, how many tears you cried and couldn’t breathe on your own because of doubt and you felt alone, would you remember how God brought you through?

Would you remember how he sent a ram in the bush when you least expected it to save you? Are you reminded where God brought you from, if you were to look back over your life and see how far you’ve come? In your lifetime you may have seen worse. Didn’t God do it before? He can do it again. Nothing and I mean nothing is impossible for God. He is Sovereign. He is faithful.

Take a moment to gather yourself and look at where God brought you from. Turn your worry into worship. Stop adding up your problems and start counting your blessings. Pray without ceasing. Stay in the Word. The battle is His, not yours. Put on the full armor of God. Let Him fight your battles.

Answers to your prayers may not come right away but if you keep believing, trusting, and have faith in God, he will answer your prayers when you least expect it. God hears the prayers of the righteous. Prayers of the righteous avail much. He hears you. Don’t give up. No matter what happens today, be encouraged. When nothing makes sense, God’s grace is sufficient. You will be blessed beyond measure, even though you didn’t do a thing to deserve it.

Thank you God for going before us, making the crooked places straight. You will accomplish your work with or without our participation. You know what you’re going to do. You have a great plan for us. We trust you. Thank you for your faithfulness.

Be blessed! – JD

Welcome to Wisdom Wednesday Morning Inspiration. Make A Declaration. Count Yourself Worthy!

I Won't Quit JoaynnIf anyone were to ask me what does it feel like to be me, I would tell them it’s nothing like what haters say about me. The opinions of others do not bother me. In fact I welcome them. Because they’re not facts. They are just opinions. Have a seat haters. God set me free! Thank you Jesus!

One of the hardest things to accept is not being accepted as you are by others. Love yourself. Accept it. Don’t let it frustrate your purpose. You may not be all you need to be. Thank God you’re not the person you used to be.

The devil wants to keep you in bondage. He wants you to believe you don’t have what it takes to live for God. The anointing breaks the yoke of bondage. Don’t be afraid. Refuse to stay bound. Live for Jesus. When you face difficult situations and it seems you’re under extreme attack, don’t give up. Run the race. God will send a ram in the bush.

Live like there’s no tomorrow. Forget yesterday. Put the past behind you. It’s a new day. Have no regrets. God is not through with you yet.

Say this with me, What God has for me is for me. I want what God has for me. I won’t quit or give up. I will walk in my destiny no matter what.

Be blessed! – JD
