There is no problem too big God cannot solve.

There is no mountain too tall He cannot move.

There is no storm too dark God cannot calm.

There is no sorrow too deep, God cannot soothe.

That’s the way the song goes…

And that’s the way… our God rolls ūüôā

 

But our life at times is filled with so much “noise” from the world around us

that we can’t even be “still” before Him even for a few moments

to be in His presence.

That even the internal noise of our thoughts rob us of those precious times with Him.

 

In the quietness of our soul we can experience such peace and healing, strength and a blessed assurance.

In sweet surrender His grace immerses us into His Love.

It is where we begin to hear Him more clearly.

His voice… His whispers…

It is where our prayer life grows and our faith is supernaturally edified.

In the “stillness of our soul” we are in a place in His Throne of Grace

 

Don’t be afraid to be “still” before Him.

Once we do and make it a habit.

Life is more fulfilling and complete

in spite what’s going on around us.

Our God is an AWESOME GOD!

 

He never sleeps, never rests… waiting for us always………. with open arms…………….* 

 

Yes, be still before Him

let God AMAZE YOU! 

 

¬†‚ÄĚSo do not fear, for I am with you;¬†

   do not be dismayed, for I am your God. 
I will strengthen you and help you; 
¬†¬†¬†I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.‚ÄĚ

Isaiah 41:9

 

For He said, “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; 
   I have summoned you by name; you are mine. 
 When you pass through the waters, 
   I will be with you; 
and when you pass through the rivers, 
   they will not sweep over you. 
When you walk through the fire, 
   you will not be burned; 
   the flames will not set you ablaze. 
 For I am the LORD your God… your Savior.

Isaiah 43:1-3

Sometimes it‚Äôs hard to give thanks when things don’t go our way.
Sometimes we may experience our own version of the ‚ÄúAgony of Gethsemane‚ÄĚ in life.
We may even feel we don’t deserve what we are going through.
So when we do.
God wants us to “give thanks in all circumstances. for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 18
Let’s remind ourselves that God will not let us go through something we can’t handle or overcome.¬†
His grace will always be sufficient to our needs.
It is when we loose sight of His goodness and His mercy, that we become discouraged;
It is when we focus on the weight of our circumstances instead of His amazing grace and the power of His resurrection that we experience doubts, hopelessness and sorrows.
Take comfort and hope when God says,
28 “And we know that in all things God works for the good¬†of those who love him, who¬†have been called¬†according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
God sent the Holy Spirit to be our Comforter and Counselor.
Our Guide and Sanctifier.
Seek the Spirit of God to enlighten you and guide you to His Truth and Will for your life.
If we continue to do good. Do what’s right in God’s eyes. Thank Him in all circumstances.
Then, in His Time…… ¬† ¬† ¬† in His Way…………
He will shower us with favor….. ¬† ¬† ¬† with grace………
and blessings……………
For the Scripture says,
‚ÄĚFor the Lord God is a Sun and Shield; the Lord bestows [present] grace and favor and [future] glory (honor, splendor, and heavenly bliss)!¬†No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly‚Ä̬†Psalms 84:11 (Amplified Bible version).

So let’s not loose heart or give up of being obedient in following God’s Word and in doing good in LOVE and in TRUTH. To honor God and give Him the Glory.

And let’s remind ourselves.
That when we are in a situation where we are tempted to complain, whine and grumble.
no matter how small or big it is,
deserving or not ‚Äď
to ‚Äúgive thanks in all circumstances for this is God‚Äôs will for us in Christ Jesus.‚ÄĚ
Keep in mind that¬†‚ÄúNO GOOD THING will He WITHHOLDD¬†from those who walk uprightly.‚ÄĚ

God’s Love is from everlasting to everlasting.

Man can never comprehend the depth & vastness of the Love of God towards him.

We may get sidetracked, feel unworthy, undeserving, angry, stumble at times in our walk with Him.

But His grace and mercy will always be waiting for us if we seek Him and turn to Him with all our heart.

He will always remain faithful and true and loving.

For that is what who He is.       LOVE.

I encourage you my friends not to get discouraged in your daily walk with Him. No matter what happens in your life. Keep your eyes on Him. Focused.

King David expressed it so beautifully in one of his Psalms on how deep God’s Love for man is and how man cannot hide from His Love.

Read it prayerfully.

Let it speak to your heart….

Psalm 139

1 You have searched me, Lord, and you know me.2 You know when I sit and when I rise;     you perceive my thoughts from afar.3 You discern my going out and my lying down;   you are familiar with all my ways.

4 Before a word is on my tongue
    you, Lord, know it completely. 
5 You hem me in behind and before,
    and you lay your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, 
    too lofty for me to attain.

7 Where can I go from your Spirit?
    Where can I flee from your presence?
8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
    if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
    if I settle on the far side of the sea,
10 even there your hand will guide me, 
    your right hand will hold me fast.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
¬†¬†¬†¬†and the light become night around me,‚ÄĚ
12 even the darkness will not be dark to you;
    the night will shine like the day,
    for darkness is as light to you.

13 For you created my inmost being; 
    you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful, 
    I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
    when I was made in the secret place,
    when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. 
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
    all the days ordained for me were written in your book
    before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts,[a] God! 
    How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them, 
¬†¬†¬†¬†they would outnumber the grains of sand¬†‚ÄĒ
    when I awake, I am still with you.

23 Search me, God, and know my heart; 
    test me and know my anxious thoughts.
24 See if there is any offensive way in me,
    and lead me in the way everlasting.

Our Deacon Tony of St. Thomas More sent this to us this morning. I want to share it with you because it is such a wonderful reading and reflection.
May you be blessed in a special way today…………………………………….*
Meditation: Ephesians 2:4-10
‚ÄúGod, who is rich in mercy.‚ÄĚ (Ephesians 2:4)
Heavenly Father, how great is your love! I am amazed at the depth of your mercy toward me. Your love is perfect and unchanging, and you never take your eyes off of me.
You are all I need, for you sustain me with the bread of life and the cup of salvation.
You are worthy of all praise and honor and glory!
From the very beginning, Father, your arms have always been open wide, ready to receive me whenever I return to you in repentance and humility.
When I had turned away from you and my sin had separated me from you, you never forgot me.
You never forsook me.
You loved me so much that you let your only Son bear my sin on the cross.
I was dead, but you brought me to life.
I was mired in guilt, but you washed me clean.
You gave me a new heart and a new mind. I rejoice that I can freely come to you and hear your words of life. I rejoice that I can know you as my Father!
Jesus, you are seated in the heav­ens with all authority and power.
You are exalted as Lord over heaven and earth, and all praise and glory belong to you.
I celebrate the fact that you have reached out your hand to me, inviting me to be seated in heaven with you.
Yes, Lord!
You have raised me up and given me authority over sin.
You have given me power to resist the evil one.
You have made me a coheir with you of all the riches and blessings of heaven. How can I help but praise you and love you?
Lord, you have done so much for me!
When I was helpless and could do nothing on my own, you poured out grace so that I could believe in you and receive your help and power.
You loved me first, so that I could turn and love you. How amaz­ing you are!
‚ÄúJesus, I rejoice in your amazing grace. I glory in your unfailing mercy. It is such a privilege to belong to you!‚ÄĚ
