With God All Things Are Possible! (Matthew 19:26 ERV)

All Things Are Possible To The One Who Believes! (Mark 9:23) The scripture declares that impossible things can happen because nothing is impossible with God. God can work miracles, as many as He desires because He is God. The limiting factor that keeps God from working miracles is unbelief. The same is true to a person who refuses to be born again, they must first believe. (Hebrews 11:6, Romans 10:9-10) Countless times many miss out on the blessings, favor and miracles of God because of questioning factors—How, When, What? How will I get through this pain? What if God never heals me? When will I get promoted? When will I find Mr./Ms.  Right? How am I going to get out of this debt? Then those feelings become internalized. What if? I should have, I wish I would have, I could have, I didn’t, I’m not, I failed. Fear challenges our faith. Fear says, “If this happens, I might lose it.” Faith says, “Come what may, I’ll be okay because of God.” You can trust God—the one who knows your beginning to your end, the path you take, your lying down, the One who is intimately acquainted with all your ways, the One who knitted you together in your mother’s womb. (Psalm 139:3, 13) I encourage you to believe God no matter what—everything God has promised will come in His perfect timing! 

“If you can believe, all things are possible to the one who believes!" (Mark 9:23) ~ God

Pray This Prayer With Me: Father, Your promises have stood the test of time, spoken over and over again in Your Word and You have fulfilled Your promises to followers throughout thousands of years.  May this simple truth on today sustain me to believe that as I trust in You my impossible will turn to possible because I believe. I humbly pray, in Jesus' name, amen… Have a great day! Never forget, in all circumstances, God loves you and you are extremely valuable and important in God’s eyes! In His service, Jacob...

Walk By Faith, Not By Sight! (2 Corinthians 5:7)

Hebrews 11:1 gives us a perfect definition of faith. It is substance. It is evidence. Faith is believing the Word of God and acting upon it, regardless of how we feel, regardless of what we see—we believe! (2 Corinthians 5:7 NLT) We’re not the first people to trust God. In Daniel 3:17, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego believed God was able to deliver them out of the fiery furnace before they went in. In Daniel 6, Daniel continued to pray and believe God was able to deliver him out of the lion’s den before he went in. It would have been nothing for God to demonstrate His power and cause these events not to occur or remove them from their situation. But God decided to allow them to go through it and leave them there, to show us and them He doesn’t have to remove us from a situation or keep us from trouble, but He can reveal to us His greatness! Faith is the evidence that God is faithful! Only when you know God’s grace is your only option, then you will experience God’s power! (2 Corinthians 12:9) I encourage you to cut off all back-up plans and throw yourself totally upon God’s mercy—only then is your faith the substance and evidence God’s Word says it will be!

“If you can believe, all things are possible to the one who believes!" (Mark 9:23) ~ God

Pray This Prayer With Me: Father, You are the same yesterday, today and forever. (Hebrews 13:8) Just as You’ve never failed those who trust in You, I know You won’t fail me. (Deuteronomy 31:6) I have no other plan. I choose to trust You and believe in Your Word. I humbly pray, in Jesus' name, amen… Have a great day! Never forget, in all circumstances, God loves you and you are extremely valuable and important in God’s eyes! In His service, Jacob...

God Will Work It Out For Your Good! (Romans 8:26-28)

Anyone who as every been in a discouraging situation or a deep valley has found comfort in Romans 8:26-28, through sickness, financial difficulty, marital or relationship problems, job loss or maybe even the unknown. Romans 8:28 begins with the words, “And we know.” We don’t think; we don’t fear the unknown. We may not know what our future holds, but we know we can take comfort—God holds our future! Romans 8:26 begins with the words, “The Spirit helps us in our weaknesses.” God is a very present help in time of trouble! (Psalm 46:1) The scripture goes on to say, “We may not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.” Knowing is not something you feel, knowing is regardless of how you feel or regardless of how things look—you believe God will work it out for your good! God doesn’t always tell us how, when or where He will work things together for good, but the promise we have is that He will work it out! God has to sign off on everything that goes and comes into your life. If He wasn’t going to use this circumstance for your good, it wouldn’t have happened. I encourage you to stop looking at what threatens you—keep your eyes on God! (Matthew 6:25-34, Psalm 121:1-2)

“I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for!" (Jeremiah 29:11 MSG) ~ God

Pray This Prayer With Me: Father, I believe, yet when trouble comes I still need Your continuous help with my unbelief. Thank You for insisting that I pray according to Your will, even when I’m overwhelmed with failures. I thank You for encouraging me as I come empty—You fill me with Your strength love and warm embrace. I humbly pray, in Jesus' name, amen… Have a great day! Never forget, in all circumstances, God loves you and you are extremely valuable and important in God’s eyes! In His service, Jacob...

You’re On The Winning Team!

Everyone Who Is Born From God Has Won The Victory Over The World! Our faith in God is the victory that overcomes the world! (1 John 5:4) Believing God’s word and acting on it, regardless of what we see or do not see, regardless of how we feel—we put all trust in God! (Hebrews 11:1) At Calvary, Jesus took sin, death, debt, sickness, conditions, struggles and eternally conquered them. Our faith in our Almighty God, gives us overwhelming victory in every area of our life. No weapon formed against you will succeed, everything will work together for your good and absolutely nothing can separate you God’s amazing love! (Isiah 54:17, Romans 8:28, Romans 8:31-39) The victory is already won! God is ruler over the universe! (Psalm 103:19) He’s not stressed, He’s not pacing back and forth wondering “What are we gonna do tomorrow?” He’s the King! The LORD strong and mighty! The LORD mighty in battle! (Psalm 24:8) I encourage you today to consider whatever you’re experiencing in light of this truth and celebrate because you’ve already won the victory and freedom through Christ Jesus! (Galatians 5:1)

"I've told you this so that My peace will be with you. In this world you'll have trouble, but cheer up! I have overcome the world!” (John 16:33) ~ God

Pray This Prayer With Me: Father, thank You for to reaching out to me with Your amazing love and grace toward one You’ve created and chosen to redeem.  Remind me as I face battles, I’m not facing them alone and I have no reason to fear, because You have won the victory! Thank You for Your faithfulness, I humbly pray, in Jesus' name, amen. Have a great day a great week! Never forget, in all circumstances, God loves you and you are extremely valuable and important in God’s eyes! In His service, Jacob...

Hold On A Little While Longer—Greater Is Coming!

Those Who Trust In The LORD Will Renew Their Strength; They Will Soar On Wings Like Eagles; They Will Run And Not Grow Weary; They Will Walk And Not Faint! (Isaiah 40:31) One of the hardest moments in life is the space between believing God’s promise and receiving the fulfillment of that promise. When things don't go according to our plans, it’s normal to feel disappointment, but we must be careful not to lose confidence in God’s promises based on the way we feel. (Hebrews 10:35) Satan desires to fill our minds with negative thoughts and emotions that cause us to feel down, discouraged, and he tries to pull us down spiritually, emotionally, financially and in every way he can. But Jesus is our LORD, a shield around us, the lifter of our head! (Psalm 3:3) Jesus came to give us righteousness, peace and joy on the Holy Spirit! (Romans 14:17) During dark, hard times of waiting—hold tight to God’s promises. Believe you will see the goodness of the LORD! (Psalm 27:13 GWT)  Believe the difficulty you’re experiencing the tears you’ve cried are temporal, because joy is coming! (Psalm 30:5) I encourage you to celebrate the accomplishments, the many blessings and have the attitude that says, “No matter what, I believe greater is coming!”

“I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for!" (Jeremiah 29:11 MSG) ~ God  

Pray This Prayer With Me: Father, thank You for every true and sure promise You’ve given to me that I can hold on to while waiting. I choose to believe, regardless of the challenges, knowing You’re going to work everything out for my good and Your glory. (Romans 8:28) I humbly pray, in Jesus' name, amen. Have a great day a greater weekend! Never forget, in all circumstances, God loves you and you are extremely valuable and important in God’s eyes! In His service, Jacob...

God Is Able To Make Every Grace Overflow To You! (2 Corinthians 9:8)

His Favor Lasts A Lifetime! (Psalm 30:5) Every follower of Christ should have an understanding of the word grace. Grace is unmerited favor.  Unmerited means: undeserved, unfair or unearned. If we had to earn grace, we could lose it and some may never get it in the first place. If some way we received salvation because of what we’ve done, it wouldn’t be grace. (Ephesians 2:4-9)  It would be fair wages or a rightful reward. Think of a moment of when you were in a difficult place or maybe you're in one now. You thought you might lose it, but had the peace and comfort through Christ that surpassed all understanding! (Philippians 4:7) You were going through, yet your heart and mind was intact. When people around you were going under, by some miracle God held you together. Your strength came from Grace! (2 Corinthians 12:9) God not only gave you grace to strengthen you, but He gave you grace to prosper you in every area you have a need! (2 Corinthians 9:8) I encourage you, whether you’ve been living in victory or defeat to rest in the grace God has given you today! (Lamentations 3:22-23)

“In the time of favor I will answer you. In the day of salvation I will help you. I will protect you. I will appoint you as my promise to the people!”(Isaiah 49:8) ~ God

Pray This Prayer With Me: Father, the more I understand what You’ve done for me, apart from anything I could have ever done, the more I am convinced of my own helplessness. I’m forever grateful of Your everlasting promises and I rest in the grace You’ve given to me. I humbly pray, in Jesus' name, amen. Have a great day! Never forget, in all circumstances, God loves you and you are extremely valuable and important in God’s eyes! In His service, Jacob...

Put It In God’s Hands—He Can Work It Out!

Give All Your Worries And Cares To God, For He Cares For You! (1 Peter 5:7 NLT, Matthew 6:34 MSG) Every day, we have to decide who’s going to be in control of our lives. Proverbs 3:6 GWT teaches, “In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths smooth.” Daily seeing God’s absolute power and control over every detail of our lives develops within us unshakeable confidence. God is able to do just what He pleases—He is Sovereign!  Nothing takes Him takes Him by surprise—He is Omniscient!   Nothing overwhelms Him—He is Omnipotent! Whatever is happening in your life, no matter how difficult—It’s not out of control.  As long as it’s in God’s hands—The God who loves you is controlling it! (Jeremiah 29:11) God is on His throne where He always has been and always will be—He has guaranteed He will work everything out for your good and His glory! (Romans 8:28) I encourage you to rest in God’s promises.

Let go of your concerns! Then you will know that I am God. I rule the nations. I rule the earth.” (Psalm 46:10 GW) ~ God

Pray This Prayer With Me: Father, give me the strength and courage I need to let go of whatever I’m holding on to. Thank You that as I place my life in Your hands, I will experience the peace, joy, victory and blessings that are my inheritance in Christ Jesus! I humbly pray, in Jesus' name, amen. Have a great day! Never forget, in all circumstances, God loves you and you are extremely valuable and important in God’s eyes! In His service, Jacob...
