So Many More Than Just I Need Our Hearts to Know This!
Keep believing, keep looking ahead, keep pressing into more and more of what God has for your life no matter what is happening.
Our best days are ahead. God's plan is bigger than just what He wants to do for you — it grows into what God wants to do through you.
The power of God's increase is so great that there are no challenges too big and no circumstances too difficult to be radically transformed.
When you keep on believing in the midst of your storm, not only will God lead you out, but He will lead you into His supernatural increase!
What you see as a major setback is really a divine setup.
God's working through the circumstances in your life to create an incredible moment of progress and promotion. He has pre-ordained seasons of increase in your life — not because of anything you do, but because He wants to pour out His goodness in your life.
God's plan for your life is bigger than simply solving today's problem — He wants to promote you. Through His Word and the power of His Holy Spirit, you will be amazed at what God will do in your life.
Always remember that God is for you and loves to give and help His children.
It's important to hide God's Word in your heart even when you feel like you don't need it because one day, when it feels as if the sun set while it was still day, you'll find strength and encouragement.
Everything you need is found in God's Word. Hope, healing, direction, relational issues, parenting advice, work advice, whatever you're seeking, you'll find it in God's Word.
Even if you just start to meditate on His word three minutes a day, God will bless it.
Here are a few verses for strength and encouragement to meditate on during difficult times.
"In the multitude of my anxieties within me, Your comforts delight my soul." (NKJ)
Amplified Version says, "In the multitude of my [anxious] thoughts within me, Your comforts cheer and delight my soul!"
New Living Translation says, "When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer".
"Call upon me on the day of trouble and I will deliver you."
"When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then you knew my path."
"When my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I." (One of my many favorites!)
"Trust in Him at all times…God is a refuge for us."
"'I am with you to rescue and save you,' declares the Lord."
"The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing."
Remember, God always causes us to come out better. If it's raining here, the sun is always shining somewhere else. The sun will always shine again in your life. God always wants us to come to Him in the day of trouble. And when you call upon Him, He will show you great and mighty things, and He will surely rescue you.}
This was just what I need to remember today. It seems no matter how old I am, or how much my life has been through, the turmoils in my life will still throw me. God must be with me even when my faith wains, because His message seems to find me either through a friend, an email, the title of a book in the store that my eye is drawn to, or even a peice of junk mail in my mail box, but a message all the same letting me know He is there with me, to turn to Him and His Word - to ask and believe.... and my sunshine will shine again. It may not be the way I was hoping for, but it's always BETTER! I'm hanging on for dear life to his word and his promise because nothing or nobody can help me but Him!
Today I needed this myself and if I don't get there on my own He always finds me through something and reminds me He is with me. Today He did again and it's always just when I need him too! :) So take a quiet moment and just stop....listen.....and feel.....you'll know God is there still with you too, and he is telling you, "I'll give you sunshine in your life again". Just let go....and.....Let God! :)
May Gods Blessings and Love Be With You
