A lot of us need to stop blaming God for things He didn’t do. If you’ve been on this earth for long I’m sure you’ve experienced pain, loss and heartache. This was not from God. The enemy comes to kill, steal and destroy but Jesus came that we may have abundant life in the face of our enemy. God is redeeming! He is good! It’s time to detach those things you’ve blamed Him for.
“This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.”
Yes, it’s Monday but that’s no reason to be down. We have a loving Father who cares for you deeply! A loving father who wants His kids to be happy. 🙂
“They will come and shout for joy on the heights of Zion; they will rejoice in the bounty of the Lord — the grain, the new wine and the olive oil, the young of the flocks and herds. They will be like a well-watered garden, and they will sorrow no more. Then young women will dance and be glad, young men and old as well. I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.”
“Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, Nor sworn deceitfully.” -Psalms 24:3-4 NKJV
Do you ever read these kinds of verses and get reminded of your past thinking, “That’s not me, my hands aren’t clean.” The Lord reminded me that’s a lie from Satan the accuser. Jesus has made us clean and given us a pure heart! Not to mention this verse was written by David who committed adultery and murder but still became known as the man after God’s heart.
“You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.” -John 15:3 NKJV
God’s love, mercy and grace triumphs over judgement through Christ!
“Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.”Acts 4:29-31 NIV
Lord, stretch out your hand upon us. May we not grow weary from opposition and accusations but boldly proclaim the truth of Your love and goodness to the lost. Fill us to overflow Holy Spirit and let signs and wonders accompany our ministry to proclaim the light and glory of Jesus to the world!
We see You moving Lord. We hear Your loving kindness towards us. We perceive You are doing a new thing. Bring the prodigals home God. Raise up your army of saints to go to the plow and accomplish your will on earth as it is in heaven.
