“The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9
Scripture Contemplation: Psalm 3; Acts 15; Ephesians 4:11-19…
In this vast, crazy, and sometimes mixed up world—God remains so amazing to me. The countless things that occur every day that comes to shake our faith and strip us of what we believe, and God, somehow, like a gentleman, will speak to our hearts and bring us a healing word and ray of good that helps us to hold on.
I pray today’s Reflections brings comfort and peace to your heart and mind. I decree it be a continued source of encouragement and inspiration. Allow the amazing love of God wrap itself around you; bring healing and deliverance. Let the Father fill your heart until there is no room for anything contrary to His goodness and His opinion of you.
God is so amazing! No matter how many times we reject Him, deny Him, sin against Him; He is always; there still reaching towards us to love us unconditionally.
When I feel as though I cannot go on. When I feel like I have reached the last strand on a very thin string, God somehow strengthens me and lets me know that I can and will make it.
Oh, I have been angry many a time at God. I have rebelled. I have been silent. I have stopped praying. I even tried to stop believing. But once you have experienced the love and grace of God, it is not something easily forgotten. And when you have been intimate with the Father, that relationship is not easily broken. He knows your heart even if you don't know. He understands there is a difference in what your mouth speaks. Whether it is coming from a place of hurt, from your mind or your heart.
Yes. God is so amazing. I don't always understand His ways. I don't always understand how He allows such horrific things to take place. But I do know, God is able. And though it may appear as nothing is happening at the moment and that God has abandoned me; a knowing in my spirit lets me know that God has not forgotten me. That, He is moving on my behalf in ways I have yet to learn of.
So amazing is God. So amazing. Though we reject Him and sometimes defy Him, He stands with outstretched arms to receive us. To love on us. I don’t know, Beloved, what may be your plight today. I don’t know what heartaches you have endured. Yet, I do know that God is more powerful than anything you are facing right now, and He desires to fill you with His love and turn things around for you.
My Beloveds, may the spirit of peace and prosperity find permanent rest in your lives. I decree that every good thing that God has ordained for your life will become evident to you. Though it may not happen overnight, He will deliver on His promises to bring and see you through and to never leave or forsake you. Trust Him where you cannot trace. The amazement is not in what God does, but the fact that He does what He does in spite of how we may have behaved or believed. Truly unconditional love. You are blessed. Now go…and be a blessing!
