We are all called to Gods purposes for our lives...
Give glory to God the Father as His only begotten Son has taught us.
Offer prayers of thanksgiving and songs of praise. For our God is good and just !
With His mighty right arm He upholds the righteous and defends the oppressed.
Mercy and justice are His who are willing to live by the commands of the Father.
He is a father to the fatherless a husband to the widow... provider, defender, savior, healer, teacher , comforter ... shepherd of the flock to His precious children ...
Children of men, give glory to the God of all creation, the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End ! and to His Son, Yeshua (Jesus), the Christ and Messiah to all who call upon His name! and to the mighty and powerful Holy Spirit, who proceeds from the Father and is given through the Son... Glory be to the Holy Trinity !
Grace and peace be to you from the Author of life, love and mercy for all time...
Make a joyful noise to our God ! for your Savior has come, and comes !
Look back to the wisdom of the prophets, they tell history... His-story ... and look up , for whence comes my help, my help comes from the Lord !
Your Deliverer has come to deliver you from the mouth of the beast ! to set free the captives from the agonizing restraints of the deceiver !
The Bridegroom has paid the bride price in His own blood. Your sins have been forgiven you children of men ! Come home to your King ! Rejoice in the Lord for all His ways are good.
He has called to His bride;
Adorn yourself My Beloved, put on the garment of praise and come confidently to the throne of grace, for I am come to deliver thee ! Is there anything to big for Me ? Come My love, sit at My feet and listen to wisdom. Place all things in My hands and I will crown you with loving kindness and cover you with My grace.
Great mercies will He extend to all who walk in His ways. Trust in the Lord your God, for in your faith you are made pleasing to Him.
There is no thing that I know of personally, more powerful than praise and worship... most especially in the midst of tribulations !
It is at this particular moment of time , when our trials are at their worst that the mightiest proclamation of faith can be uttered from our lips. Praise during times of affliction and prayers from a place of confidence are most efficacious.
They do two things... first they declare that our faith remains intact during our current firey trial which is very pleasing to God...
Secondarily, the more difficult of the two, praying in "confidence" says one trusts in God to be our help in our distress ... regardless of the outcome we need to remember and express that we "know" that God is good and faithful... and has our best interests in mind ...
At some of the most pressing times in my life when I have stood in faith, ( by the grace of God ) even as my world was crumbling around my feet, I have felt that I was most pleasing to my Lord and found great answers to my prayers as well. My faith was stretched beyond what I could muster previously and by His grace, thru the trial He increased my faith and my reward was greater than I had even prayed for...
I encourage you today to stand firm in faith and ask the Lord for the grace to increase it on your behalf... for in this you will be strengthened and please the Lord your God.
As we grow in our confidence in a God that really is here, with us and actively helping us in life... we become more abundantly prosperous in all we do.
In essence we begin to live in His presence more and more and experience His peace in more profound ways. This grace transforms every area of our hearts and our lives and leads us in the direction of a much more beautiful walk of life, a walk of love...
So offer up a song of praise and glorify your Lord, no matter the storm, and know that He is God and will deliver you, for He loves you tenderly !
"Comfort, comfort My people, says your God. Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and proclaim to her that her hard service has been completed, that her sin has been paid for, that she has received from the Lords hand double for all her sins."
"Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love." 1 John 4;8
In His Hands,
