My pastor said something in church on Sunday that stayed with me… “We supply the faith. God supplies the fruit. We are responsible to be faithful. God is sovereign,we yield the results to Him.”
There are times when I am confused, overwhelmed, feeling stuck. But, I am reminded that in those times, when I want to pull back, is when I most need to press forward into Him. Knowing that He is sovereign and has a good plan for my life…
“The Deliverer will come out of Zion, And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob; For this is my covenant with them, When I take away their sins…Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out! For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has become His counselor? “Or who has first given to Him And it shall be repaid to him?” For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To whom be glory forever. Amen.” Romans 11:26,27;33-36 NKJV
Thank you Jesus that I don’t deserve anything you have done or do for me. But, you do it anyway, because of your great love for me…
“To You I will cry, O Lord my Rock: Do not be silent to me, Lest, if You are silent to me, I become like those who go down to the pit. Hear the voice of my supplications. When I cry to You, When I lift my hands to your holy sanctuary…Blessed be the Lord, Because He has heard the voice of my supplications! The Lord is my strength and my shield; My heart trusted in Him and I am helped; Therefore my heart greatly rejoices, And with my song I will praise Him” Psalm 28:1,2&7 NKJV
“Give unto the Lord, O you mighty ones, Give unto the Lord glory and strength. Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name; Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. The voice of the Lord is over the waters, The God of glory thunders; The Lord is over many waters. The voice of the Lord is powerful; The voice of the Lord is full of majesty. The Lord will give strength to His people; The Lord will bless His people with peace.” Psalm 29:1-4&11 NKJV
Thank you Jesus for who You are and for Your faithfulness in my life.
