Hope For Today! April 14


Today is going to be a great day!

God’s mercy is new every morning! Lamentations 3:23

I’m fascinated by God’s Word. The more I am in His Word the more peace I have about our future. I believe as this verse is saying His Word and truth are as dependable as ever. Seek God for His wisdom, ask Him for direction and He will open the doors to your future. It’s says the wicked lie in ambush to destroy me, but I’m only concerned with your plans for me. I see the limits to everything human, but the horizons can’t contain your commands! I’m realizing all the bitterness and unforgiveness is not allowing me to live in freedom. We have to trust Him.

We have been wronged by so many people. Family, church and even in selling our home. None of what happened makes any logical sense as to why we had to suffer all the pain, heartache and loss, but I realized all that bitterness and unforgiveness I had towards those people was hurting me not them. Think of it this way, those people don’t care that they hurt you and I needed God to help me to forgive them for how they completely changed the course of our life because of what they did to us. We don’t understand, but God has a plan higher then we can understand. We have to believe He will give us a two fold recompense for our former trouble. The Bible says, God will give us double for our trouble.

“Seek His will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the Lord and turn away from evil. Then you will have healing for your body and strength for your bones. Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the best part of everything you produce. Then he will fill your barns with grain, and your vats will overflow with good wine. My child, don’t reject the Lord’s discipline, and don’t be upset when he corrects you. For the Lord corrects those he loves, just as a father corrects a child in whom he delights. Joyful is the person who finds wisdom, the one who gains understanding. For wisdom is more profitable than silver, and her wages are better than gold. Wisdom is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. She offers you long life in her right hand, and riches and honor in her left. She will guide you down delightful paths; all her ways are satisfying. Wisdom is a tree of life to those who embrace her; happy are those who hold her tightly. By wisdom the Lord founded the earth; by understanding he created the heavens. By his knowledge the deep fountains of the earth burst forth, and the dew settles beneath the night sky. My child, don’t lose sight of common sense and discernment. Hang on to them, for they will refresh your soul. They are like jewels on a necklace. They keep you safe on your way, and your feet will not stumble. You can go to bed without fear; you will lie down and sleep soundly. You need not be afraid of sudden disaster or the destruction that comes upon the wicked, for the Lord is your security. He will keep your foot from being caught in a trap.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭3:6-26‬ ‭NLT‬‬

My whole life I always tried to control everything myself and I finally had to surrender everything over to God. Sometimes it’s takes being completely broken before you will let God take control of your life. The scripture above when you meditate on it is a great promise to us. For wisdom is more profitable than silver and gold. God’s got this. Seek His Will in all you do and He will show you which path to take. Everyday God is confirming what He is going to do for you if you will give it over to Him and trust Him. It’s all in the Bible and it’s very clear but I never took the time to spend time with the one who could fix all my problems. Also, remember you might be waiting a long time for that answer to your struggle and problem but you may have given up and you were 2” away from your victory. Preserve. It’s been a long road for me too but believe me, it’s time to start trusting God with your life and surrender everything. I mean, everything over to Him today. Don’t go decades like I did and waste all those years you could be living in the promise land because you didn’t trust God. Believe me, my life is not where I want it to be but in faith believing He is taking me where only God can take me. Are you ready to take the journey with me? Stop fighting with the enemy and say, Lord here I am use me however you want to use me, I’m totally and completely Yours. Will you ask Him today and start living a life of freedom in Christ that you have never experienced before? Stand in Faith! I will stand in the gap with you on this awesome journey we are taking into the promise land that we can have here on earth because of the freedom we have in Christ! When you give everything over to Him it takes the fear and anxiety away and gives you a peace that surpasses understanding that only God along can give you. Will you trust Him with your life today and for the rest of your life?

“I’ll never forget the trouble, the utter lostness, the taste of ashes, the poison I’ve swallowed. I remember it all—oh, how well I remember— the feeling of hitting the bottom. But there’s one other thing I remember, and remembering, I keep a grip on hope: God’s loyal love couldn’t have run out, his merciful love couldn’t have dried up. They’re created new every morning. How great your faithfulness! I’m sticking with God (I say it over and over). He’s all I’ve got left. God proves to be good to the man who passionately waits, to the woman who diligently seeks. It’s a good thing to quietly hope, quietly hope for help from God. It’s a good thing when you’re young to stick it out through the hard times. When life is heavy and hard to take, go off by yourself. Enter the silence. Bow in prayer. Don’t ask questions: Wait for hope to appear. Don’t run from trouble. Take it full-face. The “worst” is never the worst. Why? Because the Master won’t ever walk out and fail to return. If he works severely, he also works tenderly. His stockpiles of loyal love are immense. He takes no pleasure in making life hard, in throwing roadblocks in the way:”
‭‭Lamentations‬ ‭3:19-33‬ ‭MSG‬‬

God’s mercy is new every morning. We need to remember everyday He fills us with new mercy’s for that day. God always deposits the greatest treasures in the midst of what can be the most difficult circumstances. God knows what season you are in, you can at least start by saying good morning Lord, I need you today. God understands where we are now in our lives, but I will say, there is no person that can not cut some quality time out of their life to speed it with the Lord.

Start everyday with God. This is crucial, Jesus said in Matthew 6:33, “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.” Our problem is we go seeking after all the other things at the expense of the most important thing. But if we put the most important thing in the proper place then every other thing will fall where it should. The incidents in our lives are not incidental and the trials in our lives are not trivial. God is up to something in your life and mine. He is using our setbacks to advance our spiritual maturity to a place we could never go without Him. God is good and God can be trusted. In Proverbs 3:6 the Bible says, “Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭3:6‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Don’t store up your treasures here on earth store your treasures in heaven. Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.

““Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be. “Your eye is like a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is filled with light. But when your eye is unhealthy, your whole body is filled with darkness. And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is! “No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and be enslaved to money. “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6:19-34‬ ‭NLT‬‬
