BE STRONG AND COURAGEOUS

Posted on April 20, 2021 at 4:45 AM


 



Thank You Holy Spirit as You guide us along the narrow path of Gods plan for our lives, You give us wisdom and understanding. You set us high upon a Rock (Jesus is the Rock), that we might come to know You better, see You more clearly. We want to dwell every moment in Your manifest love; Holy Spirit thank You for that is You indwelling us. Pray: Jesus You love us and Your love infuses us as we bow down before You as our King! Let it overflow from us to all we meet!   From the beginning Lord, Your love was manifest.


Psalm 139:16 (AMP)

Your eyes saw my unformed substance, and in Your book all the days [of my life] were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there was none of them.

 

God has specic plans for each of our lives.  Word becomes flesh in our lives. Spirit light is visible to the spirit man; this enfolds the mystery of our personal destiny.

 

God Creator has planned every day of our life since before we were born. His thoughts about us are more than the grains of sand. He is all knowing and all wise. God knows all about us. He is all understanding and He has seen and calculated every day of our life. God has gifted us.


Psalm 139:1-5  TPT 

 Lord, you know everything there is to know about me.
2 You perceive every movement of my heart and soul,
    and you understand my every thought before it even enters my mind.
3–4 You are so intimately aware of me, Lord.
    You read my heart like an open book
    and you know all the words I’m about to speak
    before I even start a sentence!
    You know every step I will take before my journey even begins.
5 You’ve gone into my future to prepare the way,
    and in kindness you follow behind me
    to spare me from the harm of my past.[a]
    You have laid your hand on me

 

You Lord are beyond my comprehension; my life does not belong to me. It’s God’s.  God is indeed beyond my comprehension.  My personal destiny is a mystery hidden for me, not from me.


                                         

 

 

Romans 12:2 (AMP) Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you]. [His sight for you; He knows what He has planned for you]

  


 

God knows the plans He has for our life. (Jeremiah 29:11) All the things of the past, the mistakes, the wrong choices. . . God knows and has taken them into account in His plans for our life. Where we made wrong turns ~ He just recalculates like the GPS and He will REPOSITION US.

 


God has great plans for our life. Jeremiah 29:14 (AMP)

I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will release you from captivity and gather you from all the nations and all the places to which I have driven you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I caused you to be carried away captive. He will restore us!

 


Ephesians 4:27 (AMP) Leave no [such] room or foothold for the devil [give no opportunity to him].Be in the right position! There is never a time when God is not moving in my life. Focus, press into Him; the forces of hell will rage on unchecked; satan will occupy important places if we are complacent.


                                                       


 Romans 8:18-21 That's why I don't think there's any comparison between the present hard times and the coming good times. The created world itself can hardly wait for what's coming next. Everything in creation is being more or less held back. God reins it in until both creation and all the creatures are ready and can be released at the same moment into the glorious times ahead. Meanwhile, the joyful anticipation deepens.


Romans 8:36-37 (MSG)

 31-39 So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn't hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn't gladly and freely do for us?


And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God's chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ's love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture.



   

They kill us in cold blood because they hate You. 
   We're sitting ducks; they pick us off one by one.
None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us. I'm absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God's love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.


Romans 8:36-37 (AMP)

Even as it is written, For Thy sake we are put to death all the day long; we are regarded and counted as sheep for the slaughter.  Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us.

 

No one can keep my destiny from being fulfilled. God has given us authority.

Years ago there was a comic strip called Pogo and one line from there was impactful:    "We have met the enemy and he is us." Is that not true? We can be our own worst enemy. But if we follow God's plan and His will, our life will be good. See His promises in Joshua:

 

Joshua 1:5-9 (AMP)

No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will not fail you or forsake you.

    6 Be strong (confident) and of good courage, for you shall cause this people to inherit the land which I swore to their fathers to give them.

    7 Only you be strong and very courageous, that you may do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you. Turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go.

    8 This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good success.

    9 Have not I commanded you? Be strong, vigorous, and very courageous. Be not afraid, neither be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.


                                                 

 

  Thank You Father God that You are our Father. Sometimes we need You to help us with self-discipline. Our mind tries to scatter and run all over the place when we truly just want to spend time with You. We bow before You King Jesus. You are the Lion [King] and the Lamb [Sacrifice]. You are definitely King of the heavens and the earth and we do bow before You! Oh majestic King of Kings! Let Your mighty love wash over us, infill us, infuse us, that it may spill over to all with whom we come in contact.

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
