Time to Rest Your Soul

image

For the weary heart ….. come sit and talk to the Master. Jesus is He who sustains us. Life will bring us cloudy days, turbulent winds and foggy outlooks that will have us to think that we cannot go beyond what we see out of fear.

Be still.

I know all too well this feeling. I too, must trust the Lord with the unknown. You and I cannot allow our souls to be rocked with fear and anxiety but be filled with truth, belief and faith in our Lord who says that he will not leave us nor forsake us.

Be still.

Take hold of His hand and allow his peace to come over you. Pray and seek Him for all its worth. Encourage yourself in the Lord. Speak praises unto the Father until the roof comes down. Remember that the enemy wants nothing more than to choke you out with fear. Fear that will immobilize you to not pray to the Father. Let this not be so. God is greater than the enemy. The victory has already been won!

Get up and shout with a voice of triumph….Hallelujah!

“I am more than a conqueror in Christ Jesus! He strengthens me for each day and because of Him I can face what’s in front of me.”

Keep hope and your heart in the hands of Jesus. He loves you enough to meet you right where you are. Invite Him to come sit and talk with you. You won’t be disappointed. It’s time to refresh your soul.

Blessings and encouragement from my heart to yours.

5 Find rest, O my soul, in God alone;my hope comes from him. 

6 He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. 

7 My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge.

8 Trust in him at all times, O people;pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. “Selah”

Just Look Up

Thank you Lord….. Hallelujah.

Even if we are walking in the valley, Lord you are there. if we are perplexed in our mind we need to only be still. let us listen for the soft voice beckoning us to the reason of truth.

Bless you Lord.

May we acknowledge that You are Truth and our guiding Light. Our heart and minds can become so polluted with doubt and anxiety. Let us look above and receive in Jesus’ name.

Psalms 121:1-2 NKJV
I will lift up my eyes to the hills— From whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord , Who made heaven and earth.

Who’s Watching Over You?

image

Behold, He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord  is your keeper; The Lord  is  your shade at your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, Nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in From this time forth, and even forevermore. Psalm 121:4-8 NKJV

So…. who’s watching over you? Is it your alarm system with all the cameras and sirens, a guard dog or perhaps your weapon(s). Maybe it’s all of them.

Do you have more trust in those things than the Lord?

Now I am not taking away from the things that can protect us from intruders but where does our true trust lie? Manmade items (well God created the dogs) that can fail at any given time or the Lord who has the power to stop anyone or anything that threatens to take your life?

Above all I pray that it’s the Lord. I gave this some thought as I was walking back home with my daughter and her pet. We become so comfortable putting our trust in many things and people alike.

God watches over us with a careful eye. He does not slumber and he does not sleep. How about that. He’s our Protector 24/7. He does not take the night shift and sleeps when it’s someone else’s turn. There is no electricity and back-up generator hooked up to Him if his system fails. He doesn’t even have a weapon that requires bullets when it’s emptied.

He is our Refuge and Fortress. Tenderly and with much affection God watches over us. He has even given the angels responsibility  to watch over us.

Psalm 91:11 NIV
For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;

Though nothing in this life is guaranteed and we are all bound to leave at some point, remember that if you perish by the hand of evil, the soul cannot be killed. The Lord Jesus tells us:

Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Matthew 10:28

So wherever you are at this moment, take comfort in knowing that we live and serve a mighty God who takes notice all day long. He and his angels are concerned enough to watch over us every minute of the day and night.

May your sleep be peaceful and you rest well for God is……….. WATCHING OVER YOU.

“Father, I humbly come before You first giving honor and glory because You are worthy. I ask that Your people bow before You with all respect asking for forgiveness of their sins. May they take heart in knowing such truths about You. You are mighty to save. You are our greatest Protector. Our lives are in Your hands dear Lord. Please watch over every heart whether they see this message tonight or any given blessed day given to us. May the heavenly angels take charge guarding us and providing a hedge of protection. Let our faith and trust be placed more in You than in anything man can provide. With love in our hearts and peace within our minds cause us to rest in You and be assured that all is well. In wonderful name of Jesus I pray. Amen”

Psalm 121: Do Not Fret! God Has Your Back!!

20131028-105159.jpg
This is a power and uplifting song that stems from Psalm 121 that I have attached myself to since I gave my life to the Lord years ago. Jesus IS our Help!
Be encouraged today for God has each and every one of us still here for a reason and purpose!

Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I hope in Him!” (Lamentations 3:22-24 NKJV)

Why should I worry, why should I fret
Look at all the ways he’s made
And every promise kept.
I look to the hills from which cometh my help
I’ll tell you where my help cometh
Tell you where my help cometh
Tell you where my help cometh
It cometh from the lord…
Jesus is my help
Jesus is my help
My help, hy help

The Lord’s Provision

20130408-060834.jpg
Good day to you one and all in the name of Christ Jesus our risen Lord and Savior! I come to you dear brethren to remind you to stand firm and unshakable for our very lives have been accounted for. Each day His provision has been made before you awake every morning.

Delight yourself in the company of the One who sustains you through every storm. Do not fear todays journey. He has gone before you to prepare the way. All you have to do is walk in it.

The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? (Psalms 118:6 NKJV)

Let no worry or fear beset you. Scripture tells us: What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31 ESV). 

It does not matter who tries to come against you. Remember that God has your back. It does not matter what evil plot or snare that the enemy attempts to succeed at, remember also that God has your back.

KNOW WHO YOU ARE AND WHO YOU BELONG TO!!!

Psalms 121(ESV)

I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade on your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life. The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore.

My Eyes Look Up to Thee……

Psalm 121 A Song of Ascents. I will lift up my eyes to the hills— From whence comes my help?

God the Help of Those Who Seek Him

My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is your keeper; The Lord is your shade at your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, Nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in From this time forth, and even forevermore. (Psalm 121:1-8 NKJV)

Trust in the Lord dear brethren for our God is not dead. He’s surely alive living inside of you even if you feel and think as if he is not near. He is! Emotions will get the best of us. Stand on the Word and don’t behave as if you don’t know how powerful and majestic the Great I AM is.

Do not put trust in your emotions. They come and go as the waves in the ocean; up and down. The Bible tells us:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; (Proverbs 3:5 NKJV)

Call on Him. Blow your trumpet and let your aid be made known! You need him more than anyone. Some days may grow long and weary and seem as if the light at the end of the tunnel may never shine, but I’m here to tell you that HELP is on the way. Be patient and wait on the Lord. His timing is never too early or too late. He comes right on time! TRUST and BELIEVE that you will be rescued.

Psalm 121 has personally been one of my favorite scriptures that I have embedded in my heart and trusted in since I gave my life to Christ years ago. He IS my help in times of trouble. I look UP and CALL on him because I KNOW HE is able to come through for me when I let my basket of cares be made known.

Friends, whatever it is that you are in need of, it would behoove you to let it go and give it to God. Trust that his hand is already at work. Plead your case and leave it at the alter. Amidst waiting for your rescue, count it joy as your wait with patience. The Lord is doing a great thing on the inside of you.

GOD IS ABLE TO DO ALL THINGS BUT FAIL.
