‘Come and Join Me in God’s Word’ – Faith in God

Hewbrews 11:1 NLT Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.

 

My faith is in the character of God. He is who He says He is. I believe in God’s promises, as He has yet to let me down, since I became aware of who He is. He has always done what He has promised to do for me. I know at times I cannot see what He is doing, but nevertheless that does not alter the facts of what He has said to me He will do. This is where my faith and hope comes from having confidence in Him that what He has said will actually happen; it has given me the assurance about things I cannot see.

 

Prayer

 

Heavenly Father, I thank You for the confident faith You have given to me through Your precious Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank You for showing me Your character and You are who You say You are. I believe in the promises You have made with me, for Your Word does not lie. I am assured what You say to me, You will fulfill all at Your appointed time, in the name of Jesus Christ and in the supernatural power of the Holy  Spirit of God. Amen

‘Come and Join Me in God’s Word’ – God’s Presence

Psalm 73:23-24 NLT Yet I still belong to You You hold my right hand. You guide me with Your counsel, leading me to a glorious destiny. 

 

My confidence is in God’s presence and guidance. From birth to death, I am continually in God’s grip. But far more, I have the hope of resurrection with Him. Though my courage and strength may fail, I know that one day I will be raised to life with the Lord Jesus Christ, to serve Him forever. He is my security, my ever present help and I cling to Him with all my spirit and soul.

‘Come and Join Me in God’s Word’ – The Lord Helps Me

Psalm 40:2-3 NLT I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and He turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along.

 

When I have had to wait on God, I have not at times found it easy; but I have received four benefits by me waiting. (1) God lifted me out of my despair, (2) God set my feet on solid ground, (3) God steadied me as I walked and (4) God put a new song in my heart to praise, worship, adore and love Him more. Often I have to wait for God’s blessings and sometimes I go through a trial of waiting. 

 

Prayer

 

Lord Jesus, thank You for giving me the strength and patience to wait upon You. Thank You for helping me when I cry out to You. You lift me out of my despair, out of the mud and mire. You set me upon the solid ground of God, steadying me as I walk along the path with You. How grateful and thankful I am to You always and forever more, I place my love and trust in You. Amen

‘Come and Join Me in God’s Word’ – We Should Fear God

Ecclesiastes 3:14 NLT And I know that whatever God does is final. Nothing can be added to it or taken from it. God’s purpose is that people should fear Him.

 

I have learnt the purpose of my life is to fear the all-powerful God. I also love the all-powerful God because I respect Him. I stand in awe at all the wonderful things He has done for me and because of who He is. My purpose in life starts with whom I know, not what I know or how good I am. It is impossible to fulfill my God-given purpose unless I revere, exalt, and praise God. I give Him first place in my life now and forevermore.

 

Prayer

 

Heavenly God, You are God and I know whatever You do is final. I I know nothing can be added to it or taken from it. God’s purpose is that people should fear Him. I have learnt the purpose in my life is to fear the all-powerful God, but I also love the all-powerful God because I respect Him.  I stand in awe at all the wonderful things You have done and continue to do for me and because of who You are. My purpose in life starts with whom I know, not what I know or how good I am. It is impossible to fulfill by God-given purpose unless I revere, exalt, and praise God in the name of Jesus Christ my Lord, and in the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit of God. I give the Almighty God, first place in my life now and forever more. Amen

‘Come and Join Me in God’s Word’ – God’s Requirements

Deuteronomy 10:12-13 NLT And now Israel, what does the Lord your God require of you? He requires only that you fear the Lord your God, and live in a way that pleases Him, and love Him and serve Him with all your heart and soul. And you must always obey the Lord’s commands and decrees that I am giving you today for your own good.

 

Often I ask God, Lord, what do You require of me? I wait upon Him and listen to His response to my question? Sometimes, it is not always what I want to hear, other times I am jumping with joy, because I have the answers I want to hear. It is hard to follow the commands of God, and to live in a way that pleases Him, but one thing I do know that is certain, I love Him and serve Him with all my heart and soul. I fear God (have reverence for Him). Live in a way that pleases Him. Love Him. Serve Him with all my heart and soul. Obey His commands to the best of my knowledge and ability. I live my life in faith, trust, love, confidence, in the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit of God.

 

Prayer

 

Gracious God, You require me to fear the Lord my God, and live in a way that pleases You. I want to do this too. I love You and serve You with my all my heart and soul. I surrender, submit, and relinquish my life to You, in obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ and in the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit of God. Amen

‘Come and Join Me in God’s Word’ – Ask God for Wisdom

James 1:5 NLT If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and He will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.

 

When I need God’s wisdom, I go straight to the ‘Throne of God’, and I ask Him for wisdom in the name of Jesus Christ. I need God’s wisdom and guidance in everything I do. It helps me through trying times. God’s wisdom is practical. The wisdom from God relates to life during the most trying times. It is not a wisdom isolated from suffering trials. This wisdom is a tool which trials are overcome. An intelligent person may have profound ideas, but a wise person puts profound ideas into action. Intelligence will allow some to describe several reasons why the car broke down. The wise person chooses the most likely reason and proceeds to take action. God’s wisdom is divine, and it goes beyond common sense. It is Christlike. Asking for wisdom is ultimately to be like Christ. 

 

Prayer

 

Heavenly Father, I do ask You for wisdom, and also I ask for confident faith in what I hope for and assurance for the things I cannot see. Thank You for the Scripture which helps me gain the confidence I need in my times of struggles and circumstances. I truly believe what You have said You will do in my life, You will do in the name of Jesus Christ at Your appointed time. I thank You for the Holy  Spirit, who helps me work through any doubts I may have and He helps me overcome in the name of Jesus Christ.  Amen

‘Come and Join Me in God’s Word’ – Praise the Lord

Psalm 57:9-11 NLT I will thank You, Lord, among all the people. I will sing Your praises among the nations. For Your unfailing love is as high as the heavens. Your faithfulness reaches the clouds. Be exalted, O God, above the highest heavens. May Your glory shine over all the earth.

 

I will thank and praise the Lord as He has prepared my new day. I thank Him for His faithfulness and will honour Him with my songs of praise and thanksgiving. I don’t have to have sleepless night’s worrying, about the things I cannot change, I use those wakeful hours to meditate on an expression suitable for the world. God has shown me how to turn times of stress into times of blessing by considering God’s faithfulness in comparison with my fleeting problems. I have no need to worry when I can invest my time in praying, worshiping, and praising, God, i can never thank Him enough for all the goodness God has bestowed upon me In Jesus  Christ.

 

Prayer

 

I will thank You, Lord, among all the people. I will sing Your praises among the nations. For Your unfailing live for me is high as the heavens. Your faithfulness reaches the clouds. Be exalted, O God, about the highest heavens. May Your glory shine over all the earth. I praise and thank You, with all of my heart, mind, body, spirit, and soul, for all Your goodness You have bestowed upon me in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen
