God Is Our Refuge And Strength, A Very Present Help In Trouble! (Psalm 46:1)

Do Not Be Afraid Or Discouraged, For The LORD Will Personally Go Ahead Of You. He Will Be With You; He Will Neither Fail You Nor Abandon You. (Deuteronomy 31:8 NLT) Facing tragedy, or life storms of any kind, can be extremely difficult, but with God's help and the encouragement found in the Bible and other resources, you have the strength to overcome and you can make it. The Bible teaches us in Psalm 34:19, the righteous person has many troubles, but the LORD rescues him from all of them! All means all, even while we remain in a dangerous situation—God comes to our rescue! In Daniel 3, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in the midst of the fiery furnace, God was with them! In Daniel 6, Daniel was in the midst of the lion's den, God was with him! It would have been nothing for God to demonstrate His power and remove them from their situation, but no, God decided to leave them there to show them and us He doesn’t have to remove us from our situation, but He can keep us while we remain! The good news is: it’s not at all about our goodness, strength or wisdom. In fact, the opposite is true. God chooses those who are inadequate in and of themselves, so that the ultimate glory goes to Him! I encourage you to stand still and see what the LORD will do to save you today! (Exodus 14:13)

“Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” (Matthew 28:20) ~ God

Pray This Prayer With Me: Father, thank you for maturing my faith in you to believe and receive total victory! LORD thank you for loving me and caring for me, even though I have not always done right—you rescued me. I give you all the glory! I humbly pray, in Jesus' Name, Amen… Have a great day and a great 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 Still In Control!

Don’t Get Worked Up About What May Or May Not Happen Tomorrow! God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes! (Matthew 6:34 MSG) Every day, you have to decide who’s going to be in control of your life. Will it be you or God? Even in the midst of difficulty, stress relief begins when we let God have our struggle and we recognize the unlimited greatness of His power, as it works with might and strength for us—the believers! (Ephesians 1:19 GWT) I don’t know what you’re going to face today or the rest of this week and you don’t either, but God knows and you’ve got to trust God to go before you, if you desire your rough places to become smooth. (Isaiah 45:2) Surrender to God your struggle and there you will find the power of God and peace which goes beyond anything you can imagine that will guard your thoughts and emotions through Christ Jesus! (Philippians 4:7)

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...

Greater The Struggle= Greater The Reward!

All Things Will Work Together For Your Good! (Romans 8:28) God knows all of your struggles, likewise He knows your value and He sees your potential. You may not understand everything you’re going through right now, but you have to become determined say, “It doesn’t matter how hard this is, I’m disappointed, so what—I’m not going to let this get the best of me.” “I’m more than a conquer through Christ Jesus!” “Greater He that is in me, than he that is in this world!” “Nothing is too hard for my God, God’s plans are unstoppable and He promised it will all work together for my good!” (Jeremiah 32:17, Job 42:2, Romans 8:28) I encourage you stay focused on how many times God has answered your prayers, how much God loves you and how He is forever faithful! (Psalm 100:5)

"I am the Alpha and the Omega," says the Lord God, "who is, who was and who is to come, the Almighty!" (Revelation 1:8) ~ God

Pray This Prayer With Me: Father, I surrender my life to you, so you can use me for your service and your glory. I thank you for your word God that reassures me of the awesome promises, as I trust in you and follow your plans for 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...

Remain Focused On The Goal! Keep Running & Don’t Turn Back! (Philippians 3:13-14)

There Is Greater In You! (Job 8:7) In life we will have setbacks and disappointments that will occur, however we must continue to push forward. Most settle on the negative events of life that continually steal precious time and energy from them, which makes them feel bad and keeps them from achieving their hopes and dreams. In short, negativity limits us. In order to get beyond unhealthy conditions, we must believe and trust God’s Word when He tells us in Jeremiah 29:11, “I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” If you have a vision and your eyes are focused on a plan, Satan cannot detour you. If you're not focused on something, you'll be easily distracted by everything. I challenge you to take this word of encouragement to heart today and open the door to the greater blessings, restoration and rewards God has for you, as an heir of God and joint heirs with Jesus Christ! (Romans 8:17)

When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you. When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down. When you’re between a rock and a hard place, it won’t be a dead end, because I am God, your personal God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior!” (Isaiah 43:1-6) ~ God

Pray This Prayer With Me: Father, today I surrender to you all that I have and all that I am. May I continually declare with total confidence and conviction, my best is right now and better days are coming! 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 Reveals Satan’s Plans To You, So Satan Will Not Outsmart You! (2 Corinthians 2:11)

Do Not Be Preoccupied With Evildoers! Do not envy those who do wicked things. They will quickly dry up like grass and wither away like green plants. (Psalm 37:1-2 GWT) Today’s message is simple: Romans 12:21 Amp says, “Do not let yourself be overcome by evil, but overcome (master) evil with good.” In the Good News Translation, we read “Do not let evil defeat you; instead, conquer evil with good.” My point is: It’s a lot easier to make the right choices in life God has offered for future victory and never give up doing good, rather than focus on evil weapons that are against you. Although [evil] weapons may be formed against you, they will not prosper! (Isaiah 54:17) I encourage you to make the choice today to walk in the spirit of an overcomer and live in victory! (John 16:33)

“Don’t insist on getting even; that’s not for you to do. “I’ll do the judging.” “I’ll take care of it!” (Romans 12:19 MSG) ~
God


Pray This Prayer With Me: Father, I thank you and I ask that you continue to give me wisdom, discernment and favor, as I encounter wickedness, plots and ploys. I thank you that as I walk in obedience to your word, you guarantee me victory for the glory of your kingdom! I humbly pray, in Jesus' name, Amen! Have a great day and 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...

This Is The Day The LORD Has Made! Let Us Rejoice & Be Glad Today! (Psalm 118:24 GWT)

Yesterday is gone, tomorrow is not promised, so today is all we have. Whatever today holds, you have a choice to dread today or rejoice today! God made this day, God called you to this day, God ordained what you will walk through this day. Moreover, God already knew what this day would hold for you and God is going to walk with you no matter what you encounter—He won’t leave you or forsake you. Every day is a good day, because it’s a new day of grace, mercy and love from our heavenly Father! (Lamentations 3:22-23) I encourage you to take a moment and truly think about who created this day and everything in this day, and rejoice and be glad in God’s wonderful gift to you!

“Rejoice and be glad, because you have a great reward in heaven!” (Matthew 5:12) ~ God

Pray This Prayer With Me: Father, I know that your promises and your mercies are new every morning! As I cherish this day you have purposed for me, I pray that my life brings you glory and honor. I humbly pray, in Jesus' name, amen. Have a great day and a great weekend! Never forget, in all circumstances, God loves you and you are extremely valuable and important in God’s eyes!

The Seeds You Sow Today Will Become Your Future Harvest—Always Do You Best!

Whatever You Plant Is What You'll Harvest! (Galatians 6:7) “Whatever a man sows, that he will also reap” is a natural agricultural law that Apostle Paul applies to our everyday existence, to teach us the things that are happening to us now, is the harvest of thoughts and actions sown in the past. Those whose actions are wisely realizing before the reward, there must first be labor and before a harvest, there must first be planting, will have insight in the future to make careful decisions. The important lesson of Galatians 6:7 is every choice has a consequence and there is no escape for the believer or the unbeliever—it is a law of life. I encourage you to sow good seeds by making wise—godly decisions and expect God to reward you for your faithfulness!

“A thief comes to steal, kill and destroy, but I came so that you may have life and have everything you need!” (John 10:10 GWT) ~ God

Pray this prayer with me: LORD, I ask that you direct my steps today, so that my thoughts and actions are seeds sown to reap eternal life! Let the words of my mouth, the meditation of my heart, be pleasing to you, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer! (Psalm 19:14 NLT) I humbly pray, in Jesus' Name, Amen. Never forget, in all circumstances, God loves you and you are extremely valuable and important in God’s eyes! Have a great day! In His service, Jacob...
