Trust God’s Plan For You & Hope For The Best! (Proverbs 3:5-6, Romans 5:5)

In life we experience heartbreak, tragedy, loss and sometimes incredible burdens that seem hard to bear. Even during those moments, God is in control, bringing about His purpose within us and good out of every situation! (Romans 8:28) I encourage you to remain focused on our God who answers prayers, our God who is the only one worthy of our ultimate trust, and our God who is forever faithful! (Psalm 100:5) God’s plans are unstoppable! (Job 42:2) Nothing is too hard for our God! (Jeremiah 32:17)

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

Pray This Prayer With Me: Father, it’s hard to see the good when things seem unfavorably, but I know You know what You’re doing and You desire only what’s best for me. You’re able and You know the path I take, I ask for Your strength, Your peace, Your guidance, so I may live the life You have preordained for my good! 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...

Let Go & Let God Have His Way! (1 Peter 5:7, Psalm 55:22)

Our life is better off placed in the hands of God than any other hand any day. Whether it’s healing—“By His strips we’re already healed!” (Isaiah 53:4-5) Financially—“God will supply all our needs according to His riches in glory!” (Philippians 4:19) Difficulty—“When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD lifts a standard against him and drives him!” (Isaiah 59:19) When we find ourselves facing obstacles and life’s challenges, there is nothing more effective or important than taking our cares and giving them to God. God wants both our big and small cares. Earth has no sickness, sorrow, pain, conflict or defeat that Christ cannot give us victory over! (John 16:33, 1 Corinthians 15:27) I encourage you to cast all of your cares on Him—He Cares For You! (1 Peter 5:7)

"Come to Me, all who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest. Place My yoke over your shoulders and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble. Then you will find rest for yourselves. My yoke is easy to bear and My load is not hard to carry." (Matthew 11:28-30)

Pray This Prayer With Me: Father, whenever I’m faced with a decision or an intimidating situation, help me to put my wholehearted trust in You. I ask that You will guard me from all fear and doubt and I pray for perfect peace, as my mind remains steadfast on You! I humbly pray this prayer, 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…

"Who Has Believed Our Report? To Whom Is The Arm Of The LORD Revealed?" (Isaiah 53:1)

In life we encounter situations that we must choose whether or not to rely on the beliefs and words of humanity and limited natural abilities or will we believe in the supernatural power and Word of God? Two important scriptures that have great influences on our decision: In Isaiah 55:11 GWT God speaks, “My word, which comes from My mouth, is like the rain and snow. It will not come back to Me without results. It will accomplish whatever I want and achieve whatever I send it to do." Psalm 119:89 teaches us, “His Word is forever settled in Heaven.” At all times, if we desire to see results, we must trust in the Word of God. As the psalmist song, "Whose report will you believe?" I encourage you to make this your song and response: “We shall believe the report of the Lord! His report says I am healed. His report says I am filled. His report says I am free. His report says victory!"

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

Pray This Prayer With Me: Father, empower me to take big leaps of faith to believe. Touch my heart and strengthen me in my areas of unbelief. 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...

Everyone Who Is Born From God Wins The Victory Over This World! (1 John 5:4a)

As children of God, we have nothing to fear, because our God has overcome this world, placing all things are under His authority, we too walk in the victory of that same power! (John 16:33, 1 Corinthians 15:27) God has all power to change our conditions, no matter what they may be. No weapon formed against us will prosper! (Isaiah 54:17) God works all things out for our good! (Romans 8:28) With God in control of every aspect of our life, we can be encouraged in knowing, victory belongs to Him and victory belongs to us!

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

Pray This Prayer With Me: Father, I thank You for the power and victory You have given to me as Your child! I’m grateful You have won the victory, so I may experience the peace, joy, victory and blessings that are my inheritance in Christ Jesus! I humbly pray, in Jesus’ mighty 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...

The Humble Will Be Exalted! (Luke 14:11)

This scripture is both instructional and wisdom, God lifts those who are humble to greater things; however, God has no problem bringing down the proud. A proud person is self-seeking and self-exalted and that person is certain to face resistance from God. (Isaiah 14:12-14) A humble person relies on God for strength, direction and wisdom and considers the needs of others even before their own. (Matthew 23:11) I encourage you, if you desire promotion, elevation, favor—humble yourself under the mighty hand of God and God will exalt you at the proper time! (1 Peter 5:5-6)

“Whoever exalts himself will be humbled and whoever humbles himself will be honored!” (Matthew 23:12) ~ God

Pray This Prayer With Me: LORD, according to Your will, I desire a heart that pleases You and a life that gives You glory. I surrender my thoughts, dreams, ideas and desires to You, so You will all receive the glory, honor and praise. 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...

Only Believe—It Is Working Together For Your Good! (Mark 5:36, Romans 8:28)

Everyone faces life’s challenges, but despite the difficulty, God promises to work all things out for His children’s good! (Romans 8:28) Through everything you’ve faced in past circumstances, God desires to use the knowledge and wisdom you’ve gained, to assist you today and in the days to come. I encourage you not to give in to conditions surrounding you, but take the time through spiritual discipline to see the advantage God has given to you for your good and for His glory!

“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) ~ God

Pray This Prayer With Me: Father, thank You for every blessing of grace You have given to me, even the blessings of You goodness and Your mercy. I ask that on today and in the days to come You will continue to lead and guide my footsteps, so I may walk in the purpose You have predestined for me, to ensure all things will work together for my good! 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...

With God—There Is No Limit To What You Can Do!

By Action Of His Power That Is At Work Within Us, God Is Able To Carry Out His Purpose And Do Superabundantly, Far Over And Above All That We Dare Ask Or Think Infinitely Beyond Our Highest Prayers, Desires, Thoughts, Hopes, Or Dreams! (Ephesians 3:20 AMP) Many times doubt and an inability to see beyond our current conditions keep us from receiving the indescribable God has for us. Flesh tends to look at problems or delay and become discouraged; as a result, limiting God’s best for our lives. God desires to go above and beyond all we could ever ask or think, according to His riches in glory! (Philippians 4:19) I encourage you to walk by faith and not by sight—Christ invites us to pray believe and receive what we ask of Him! (1 John 5:14)

“If your faith is the size of a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you!" (Matthew 17:20) ~ God

Pray This Prayer With Me: Father, as I seek Your Kingdom, Your will and Your righteousness above all else, let me never be consumed or even a little fazed by the cares of this life. You are my hope day by day and I thank You for the growth and fruitfulness You have given me in the midst of threatening circumstances. 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...
