Even the greatest men of God sometimes got discouraged, like King David. David was a great Psalmist, a great singer, and he usually sang beautiful praises to the Lord. But one time before he was king, he was sure that Saul was going to kill him, and he actually said, “Some day I shall surely die at the hand of Saul!” (1Sam.27:1) Thank God David never wrote a Psalm saying that! How could you sing that? Did David ever die at the hand of Saul?–He never did! So that was just the Devil trying to discourage him. If you let the Devil get you down and use your mouth, and you speak doubt and discouragement and his lies, you are preaching the Devil’s own doctrines! Don’t do it, or you’re just letting the Enemy in. Take a positive stand against the attacks of the Enemy and fight the Devil and fight his doubts! The minute you feel discouraged, start praising the Lord, start going on the attack! As long as you’ve got a praise in your mouth, you can’t complain and murmur!
The Enemy hates praise. He hates songs that praise the Lord and he hates God’s Word most of all! So keep full of it!–Amen?
When I thought I could not make it, God showed Himself to be awesome in my life. In the midst of affliction, I cried out to God, He heard and delivered me. When I think about how good God has been to me, only two words come to mind, “Awesome God.”
I give glory to God Almighty that in my trial, a ministry was birthed called Shalom Miracle Ministry. How could I have accepted the call, if not for God’s love, patient and kindness. I had resisted for so long, until all doors where closed, then I realized that there was no help from anywhere except from my God, my creator and my maker. If I have mouths all over my body, they will not be enough to thank God for patiently waiting for me.
I encourage you all going through difficult times, look deep inside, you will find that there is a hidden treasure and a testimony in what you are going through. The bible says in Psalm 119:71, “It is good for me that I have been afflicted that I may learn your statutes.”
Affliction drives you to God, thereby learning who God is and why He created you. Through seeking freedom free your situation, you come in contact with God’s love, friendship, goodness and kindness. Through trials, you fall in love with God and you become so attached to Him, that peace, contentment, joy and satisfaction are released into your spirit. After tasting God’s liquid love pouring out to your very soul, you can never go back to the way you were before.
My friend, God’s mercy, love and generosity are so rich, fulfilling, lasting, tangible and durable. God’s love value is much more than gold. After tasting God, then you can boldly say, “Take the whole world and give me Jesus.” This is how much you value what He alone has given to you. I invite you to come and taste the sweetness of God, He is so humorous! Nothing can compare with this sweetness I have found. So I invite you, come, it is free. Receive His Salvation and your journey begins. God is awesome!
Are you in search of Peace in this restless world. Are you seeking a kind of peace that is deep, rich and satisfying? The only place to find it is in Jesus Christ, the son of God. He is the prince of peace. The word of God says in John 14:27, “peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you, not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” He is the giver and distributor of peace, the peace the world can not give, because it is a different kind of peace.
This peace Makes the totality of the body to be at rest (soul, spirit and body), in spite of any predicament you find yourself in. Why is this so? It is because your focus is on Jesus Christ. The word of God says, He will keep in perfect peace whose heart is stayed on Him ( Isaiah 26:3). Your focus should not be centred around your situation, if you continue to fill your mind with what you are going through, it will be impossible to access this peace. In order to have this peace, your focus should be on God and His word.
When our Lord Jesus was on earth during His ministry, he was never confused about any situation, he was never stressed concerning any matter. His focus was always on His heavenly father, he was constantly in communion with His father. Jesus is our role model, He is our example to follow in order to get the same result of peace He had all the time.
If you are experiencing lack of peace, joy and contentment, why don’t you call on Jesus to help you. Once you say “help me Lord Jesus to have your peace”, I promise you, help will be on the way. There is nothing compared to having God’s kind of peace, So come on, join the club, it is free!
Prayer is the key that unlock all closed doors. Every prayer prayed according to God’s will gets results. It is a promise that whenever we call upon God, He will answer (see 1 John 5:14). Are you passing through difficult times, are you being attacked on every side by satan, our chief enemy? Let me reassure you, you are not alone. The same trials you are going through, other are passing through as well. The good news is that we’ve got the victory. The bible says many are the afflictions of the righteous but the LORD delivers him from them all (Psalm 34:19).
Do not be discouraged, God has not abandoned you nor forgotten about you. God has a good plan for you, to give you a hope and a great future. Do not let physical circumstances you see cause you to be weary. God is in charge of your life.
Trust Him for a turn around, make up your mind that you will wait until your change comes (Job 14:14). That problem is not going to last long. Let your confidence be unshakable, if God’s eyes are on the sparrow (Matthew 10:29), be rest assured that His eyes are on you every minute. All you need to do is keep your focus on the word, renew your mind with the word, very soon, you will become master over life’s challenges. You will not fail in Jesus name! Amen.
No matter what you are going through, God is able to pull you out of any bad situation. The bible says in Joshua 1:7, “Be strong and very courageous….”. It takes courage and being strong spiritually to be able to overcome trials and tribulations. Let you focus be on God Almighty alone, He alone can see you through. No man or woman can help you successfully, except God. So, hold on to Him, He will never fail you, not now or ever.
