God is still in control

God is still in control and always will be Sovereign

2nd Timothy 1:7 “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and a sound mind.” 

Fear and anxiety are two of the enemies’ weapons, and can take control of what a person thinks or how they feel, especially if they take their focus off of God.

The more a person struggles with fear, the more likely they will be overwhelmed by it, thus allowing fear to take control over choices and decisions that need to be made.

Reading and hearing the word of God will give the believer power, love and a sound mind to overcome any fears or anxiety that someone may be experiencing.

2 Corinthians 4:16-17 “For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. 17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;

Believers cannot afford to get caught up in worldly views of what is going on around them. The decision that has to be made is to walk by faith and not by sight.

2nd Corinthians 5:7 “For we walk by faith, not by sight.”

God still is protecting His people, He is a refuge.

Psalm 46:1“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.”

God can bring joy to the soul during tough times

Psalm 94:19 “When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul.”

Believers have to continue to pray, give thanks and keep their focus on God.

Philippians 4:6-7 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

“Lord Jesus, You said in your word “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.” In spite of what it may look like, or what happens, we your people will continue to walk by faith, believing that You are sovereign and still in control. My prayer is that on a daily basis, your people will continue to acknowledge You in their lives. You made provision in the wilderness for forty years, and continue to make provision now each and every day. May we always give You praise, glory and honor that only You rightly deserve. May your people continue to walk by faith in you and have no fear of what they see or hear about conditions going on around them, in Jesus name…Amen!”

A ever present help

Not on My watch

Psalm 121:4 “Behold, He who keeps Israel
Shall neither slumber nor sleep.”

The phrase “not on my watch” is from the nature of command on board a ship that has different shifts that have been divided and called ‘watches”. Individuals take turns to be “the person on watch” and is in charge of the ship.

To be “the person on watch” entails serious status, having a great responsibility for the entire ship itself, also everyone that is on the ship.

Everything that happens on “your watch” is your responsibility. So if any mishaps, accidents or any kind of damage occurs, the person “on watch” will be held responsible, even if they don’t have anything to do with it.

It is considered to be a bad mark against the person “on watch” if a problem occurs when they were in charge, and did not take corrective action to stop the wrong doing from happening.

Our Heavenly Father is “on watch” 24/7 for His people, and will keep them from dangers both seen and unseen.  

Isaiah 41:10 “Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” (NKJV)

A believer never has to feel that they are alone or unprotected.

Our Heavenly Father is “on watch”

Psalm 32:7 “You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance.” (NKJV) Selah

Because God is a safe hiding place, He can keep his people from any danger that may come their way.

Our Heavenly Father is “on watch”

Isaiah 40:8 “The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.” (NKJV)

No matter what season a person may be in, whether it be day or night, the word of God will persevere in a season of trials or tribulation that may arise.

Our Heavenly Father is “on watch”

Isaiah 54:17 “No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord And their righteousness is from Me,” Says the Lord.” (NKJV)

God can see weapons that are being formed against His people. Because He is “on watch” constantly and will intervene on His people’s behalf, He prevents what is being done, or what is being said from prospering and having an effect on His people.

Our Heavenly Father is “on watch”

Psalm 91:10-11 “No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; 11 For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways.” (NKJV)

Thank you heavenly Father for being “on watch” for your people and for preventing any evil or plague to come near. Thank you also for encamping angels around and about your people that keep your people each and every day. You said in your word that you would never leave us or forsake us. Our trust is only in You, in Jesus name…Amen!

Return to Sender

Return To Sender

Romans 8:1″There is therefore now no condemnation to those to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”

On an occasion, mail will be delivered to an address when the person that was living there has moved, and has a new address. The person that is currently living at the address will sometimes write on the envelope or package; “return to sender” and that envelope or package will be returned to the person or company the sent the mail.

Romans 8:33 “Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.”

A person does not always have to accept what is sent or given to them, and also does not have to accept what has been said about them, or what they have been accused of.

Revelations 12:10 “for the accuser of the brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down.”

Believers have to recognize both the power and the authority that they have, and use that God given power and authority to be victorious when they are being accused, or attacked by the enemy.

2nd Corinthians 2:11 “lest Satan should take advantage of us, for we are not ignorant of his devices.”

Believers have to remain vigilant of what is going on around them.

Isaiah 54:17 “No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgement you shall condemn.”

The next time the enemy forms a weapon, or makes a false accusation against you, just say the words “return to sender” and shout to the Lord with a voice of triumph claiming the victory…Hallelujah!

Lord Jesus, thank You for the power and authority You have given your believers to live victorious lives free from false judgements and accusations…in Your precious name. Amen!

Matt 6:34 “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. (NKJV) 

When a person is worrying, they are focusing their thoughts on the possible negative outcome of something that they no control over.

Worrying can allow a person to become distracted about what is happening at the present time, and give way to experiencing negative feelings or uncertainty over the outcome of a potential problem.

Fear, anxiety, stress, disrupted sleep, exhaustion, irritability, and headaches are just a few examples of what can be caused by worry.

Worrying affects both the mind and body, and no amount of worrying will change the out come of what a person is worrying about.

Image result for psalm 55:22

Worrying can be a way of showing that we don’t trust that God is in control of our lives, and everything that is going on around us. God has positive thoughts and positive plans for us.

Jeremiah 29:11″For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (NIV)

When we put are faith and trust in God, there will be no need to worry about what is happening presently, or what will happen in the future.

Matthew 6:33 “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” (NKJV)

When we put our focus on God, seeking His kingdom and His righteousness, there is no need to worry about anything.

No matter how it may look or seem, how someone else sees it, or what others may say…we can stand on the word of God.

Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”(KJV)

O God, thank you for your plans to prosper your people and give them hope with a future, and as in the KJV of the bible, the word worry will not be in our vocabulary, in Jesus name…Amen!
