For I consider that the suffering of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. Romans 8:18(ESV)
By the grace of God, we made it! I know without a shadow of a doubt that we never would of have made it without God on our side. Come on shout for joy unto the Lord, if you are believing by faith that your Change is right around the corner. As it appears that we are slowly coming out of the pandemic, how many people praying for change to come a wonderful shift to take place all across our world? 2020 was a record year for all of us, we truly experienced one hit after another. Yet we are stilling stand strong in our faith and we can declare with all authority that God is still faithful and worthy to be praised. I’m sure you can also agree with Job, though he sleigh me, yet will I trust in him! Today I encourage you to take a moment, pause, and think of one thing positive that you are truly thankful for. It’s easy to focus in on the negative… the fear, the many loses, the disappointments, and the challenges that we have faced in this particular season. Allow me to remind you that seasons change, and this too shall pass! The God we serve is still performing miracles and blessing us right now! He didn’t say that it was going to be easy or peaches and cream always. Please be aware of the things you allow your mind to focus on. It is my prayer that God will give us the serenity to accept the things that we have no control over, the wisdom to be obedient to his word, and the heart for our brothers and sisters that are in need. A question we can all ask ourselves today, ‘Am I my brother’s keeper?” We will continue to get through this year together. I need you and you need me, and by and by our change will come! Our deliverance will come! Our healing will come! My hope is that there will be more love and compassion all across the world, families will be stronger, marriages will be rekindled, children will be grateful, and we will all APPRECIATE life and all the blessings that God has given us way more than we did before Covid-19 and injustice came on the scene. Let’s continue to focus on what God is trying to teach us and reveal to us about (US) during this time. Amen! Hold on, help is on the way! God is still on the throne, and HE is the only one in control! He has the whole world in his hands. And he promised never to leave nor forsake us. Keep hope alive, rest in him, and have faith the size of a mustard seed. God will do anything but fail!!! Amen!
Hallelujah! Glory to your name! Thank you God, thank you…thank you; Lord we thank you! Father we thank you for waking us up this morning, for food on our tables, clothes on our backs, shelter over our heads, and a reasonable portion of health and strength! Oh God, search us and if you find anything that is not like you, please take it way! Father forgive us for our sins and our iniquities. Lord we are truly grateful to you for every gift and blessing you have given us. Thank you Lord that we shall live and not die! Satan is trying to rob us of our peace, but the devil is a liar! We come against him by the power of the Holy Spirit, and we declare and decree we’re coming out of this stronger, wiser, and better than we ever were before! This current sufferings, tribulations, sickness, and affliction may appear to be great, but they are nothing compared to your power! Father help us to keep our eyes on the prize and to remain focused on you. We believe by faith that nothing is too hard for you! Remind us that we have been blessed to be a blessing, and show us how we can be a blessing to someone else. Put someone on our hearts to call and check on. For we know that it’s not about us, but all about you being glorified through us! We ask a special blessing over this day, give us guidance and direction. Speak lord for your servants are listening. Please bless and comfort those who are grieving and missing loved ones. Father give thanks to you for providing a vaccine. May accomplish healing and protection from Covid-19. We pray for our mindset on today. Help to keep our thoughts positive and pure. We come against the spirit of depression, oppression, lack, being bored, and loneliness. Instead Oh God we will count every blessing and offer praise unto you. Father help us, we need you on today, speak Lord for your servants are listening. Fill us with a still spirit and help us to wait patiently for you to heal our land. And while we’re waiting, give us instructions as to what you would have us to do. Order our steps, our walk, and our talk, that everything that we say and do will line up with your will. For it’s in the awesome name of Jesus we do pray, give thanks, and say Amen!
