Blessed and Rejoicing

God requires that His righteous children consider themselves blessed and highly favored. Therefore, we should be glad in the LORD, rejoice and shout for joy. Because no matter what we go through His love, grace, mercy and compassion never fails to surround and protect us from all harm and danger, seen and unseen.

Remember they that dwell in the secret place of the most high God will always abide under His shadow, because He is our refuge and fortress, plus a very present help in time of trouble as Psalm 91 tells us. Psalm 32:7 also confirms that He is our hiding place and He will protect us from trouble and surround us with songs of victory. I am a testimony to that because He has increased my faith, trust, confidence and hope in Him. I did not suffer loss of anything during the storms of my life,because what earthly things I lost, was a gain to know Christ Jesus,and my heavenly riches which is untouchable,; Glory, praise, thanks and honor to God my Father in the omnipotent name of Jesus Christ His only begotten Son who made me more than a conqueror.

IT’S ALL IN THE PRAISE

Some people associate the scripture that says, “The Lord loves a cheerful giver,” with only money, tithes and offerings. But God loves you more when you give Him your heart, attention and time cheerfully (its value is more than the money you give). Plus remember that He owns the world, including everything and everyone in it. That is why in Psalm 100 He tells us how He wants us to come into His presence; He wants us to make a joyful noise unto Him.

“I will bless the Lord at all times His praise shall continually be in my mouth. Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless His holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; and healeth all thy diseases; who redeems thy life from destruction; and crowns thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; who satisfies thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagles.” (Psalm 34:1;Psalm 103:1-5)

So give praise unto the Lord!

All glory, honor, praise and thanks go to God for using me to deliver this message. I pray that He will give all who read this message the spiritual gifts necessary to comprehend and act upon His word. I exercise my power and authority in the name of Jesus to bind every tactic of the enemy that will try to stop, hinder, or prevent this word from reaching its intended people. I loose the Holy Spirit and the Heavenly angels to secure this word so that it reaches its intended people, according to Matthew 16:19 and Luke 10:19 in the omnipotent name of Jesus, Amen.

ENCOURAGEMENT

No, it’s not luck, when God blesses us, or do something fantastic in our lives, people like to say that, we were lucky. I was told that on many occasions; but, I had to inform them, that as Christians, we are transformed from our old evil ways, renewed, and equipped with a heavenly treasure, in an earthly vessel that displays the excellency of Gods power, that has nothing to do with us  ( 2 Corinthians 4:7).

Yes, the ungodly call it luck. But, we the Christians call it unlimited grace, mercies, favor, and goodness that we receive daily(Psalms 23:6). Children of God, the things that bother and trouble the ungodly, should never phase, worry, or disturb us. Why? Because we are children of the most High God ( Romans 8:16, 1 John 3:1); We are more than conquerors through Him that love us, and nothing can separate us from the love of God (Romans 8:37-39); Our God shall supply all our needs, according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19); Every good and perfect gift comes from God, and He never denies us anything (James 1:17) especially when we are righteous.

So when we are hard-pressed, and troubled on every side – we don’t get distressed, or crushed.

When we are perplexed – we are not in despair, we don’t quit, or give up, but our patience is activated.

When we are persecuted – we know, we are not forsaken, nor abandoned.

When we are cast, knocked, or struck down – we are not destroyed, we get up and go.

When we throw in the towel, God throws it back at us, and let us know that, His grace is sufficient, and His strength is made perfect in our weakness( 2 Corinthians 12:9).

You must realize, that all these things occur, so that we can magnify, manifest, and demonstrate, the legacy of Jesus Christ, all that He did for us, plus the victory, authority, and power he gave us to tread upon serpents, scorpions and all the power of the enemy, where nothing can hurt or harm us ( 2 Corinthians 4:8-10, Luke 10:19).

So beloved, as Christians we must know that things happen, so that Gods grace and mercy is seen, and will cause many people to give God the glory, praise, and thanks He deserves, you must realize that sometimes we are the Bible that unbelievers read. We are on display everyday. So let us continue to walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise children of God redeeming the time in these evil days (Ephesians 5:15). Even in uncomfortable, sometimes unbearable situations, we should put our complete trust, and confidence in the most High God, who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worked in us (Ephesians 3:20).

Listen to me, when you have a strong relationship with God you can move mountains, or He will take you over the mountain, or He will take you through the mountain, it all depends on what will give Him more glory. If you never have an encounter,or don’t know God or His only begotten son Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17), go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and just follow the instructions, it will be the best thing you ever do.

I give God our Heavenly Father, the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to bring this message to you, I pray it blessed you as it did me, and you will abide in His will and way in Jesus Name, amen.
