Extend Out Your Hands

TreePhoto By: Lorenzo C Spencer

  You will make it. You will get through it. You will reach your destiny. Smile and praise God. You are walking under the favor of the Lord. Sometimes, it might not seem like it at times. We must know it within our heart. We must fully trust in God because God is always looking out for us. Every good thing works together for those who love the Lord. Despite of how you are feeling right now. Despite of what you are going through right now. If it is negativity or an attack from the enemy etc.., then you must reach up to Jesus. Trust God! Let Jesus pull you up and out of your situation. Despite life woes at times, you are highly favored. Jesus can and will meet you at your need.

 

Philippians 1:6 (NIV)

being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

PRAYER

Lord if I am having trouble seeing that I am highly favored by you. Lord, help me see that. Lord as I go through this process, please fill me up with your joy. I ask to be made stronger and better in you Jesus Christ. I extend my hands to you because Jesus, I need you all the time.

The Storm is Over

The storm is over. You have made it through the eye of the storm. What you are experiencing now is the residue of it. Praise God! Can you see the rainbow? God’s promises are for real and they are yours. Praise God! It doesn’t look like it, but the sun will shine soon. The only thing you will be enjoying is the showers of blessings from the Lord. Could you believe it that your blessings are right here? I know that it seems like it has been forever. Reaffirm it! God shall bring to pass those things that he has promised me. I thank you Jesus that my storm is over. I praise you Lord for the beginning of blessings showering down upon me. Hallelujah!! Hallelujah!!

 

Isaiah 41:10

fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Psalm 61:3-5

You have been my refuge, a tower of strength against the enemy. I would like to be a guest in your tent forever and to take refuge under the protection of your wings. Selah O God, you have heard my vows. You have given me the inheritance that belongs to those who fear your name.

 

Fight the good fight of faith

Will you give up or will you continue to fight? It’s not over, so don’t throw in the towel. It may seem like you are defeated, but you are not. There is plenty of fight left in you. You have to continue the fight of faith. Jesus will help you land the punch that will knock out your opponent. He will defeat the enemy on your behalf. All you have to do is keep on standing. You might get knocked down a couple of times. Stand up in Jesus‘s name. Hold up your guards with the word of God when the enemies throw their rapid jabs. You can take it and you can stand. Jesus is with you, so call on him right now. He will deliver you!

 

1 Timothy 6:12 (NKJV)

12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses

Glory to God! Praise Him!

There are a lot of distractions. For the man or woman of God, don’t be fooled and lose focus. It is so easy to get sidetracked with the things of the world. We can sometimes drip into our own world. We have so much information at our fingertips or at a click of a button, so we could easily get bombarded with nonsense. Sometimes it is a good thing and sometimes we lose a grip on true reality. Some people spend more time trying to find out the plans of the enemy or what the enemy is going to do next instead of praising God. Everything has its proper place, but I shall give God the Glory and I shall focus on praising God.

 

MY PRAISES!!!

 Glory to God!

Glory to God!

Glory to God!

God deserves my praises

Glory to God

Praise his Holy Name

Hallelujah to the King of Glory

Hallelujah to the one who sits upon the throne

Glory to God

Glory to God

I shall Praise him

Glory to your Holy Name

I shall Praise You

Glory to God

You are my strength

I shall awake praising your name

During the course of my day

I shall praise your Holy Name

Before I go to bed

I shall praise your Holy Name

In my sleep

My spirit shall praise your Holy Name

Glory to God

Glorrrrry!!!!!

And all of my praises

I shall shout and sing unto God

 

 

Psalms 29

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 voice of the Lord breaks the cedars, Yes, the Lord splinters the cedars of Lebanon. He makes them also skip like a calf, Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild ox. The voice of the Lord divides the flames of fire.

The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness; The Lord shakes the Wilderness of Kadesh. The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birth, And strips the forests bare; And in His temple everyone says, “Glory!”

10 The Lord sat enthroned at the Flood, And the Lord sits as King forever. 11 The Lord will give strength to His people; The Lord will bless His people with peace.

My Faith is in Jesus

Put your trust in God sounds like a great phrase when you are really going through. It seems sweeter when life is at its best. When you are going through the toughest battles in your life will God provide? It may seem like he won’t. That is what the enemy wants you to think. It takes a lot to believe God will provide when your comfortable life is falling apart right in front of you. I am here to tell you that God will provide. You have to stand on his word with courage and strength. You can’t fight when you doubt and half believe God. You must stand firm on the words of God. Your faith in God is the only thing which is stopping you from losing it all. Even if you lose something with Jesus’s help, you can rebuild and make that which you lost great again.

 

Jesus, give me the strength to believe that you will provide

Jesus, give me the strength that I need to fully trust you

Jesus, give me the strength to overcome this situation

Jesus, give me the strength to grow in you

Jesus, give me the strength to focus on you

Not what things look like

But what I know to be true in you

Jesus, increase my trust in you

Jesus, I don’t want to ever doubt you

Jesus, I don’t want to ever not believe in you

Jesus, I pray that my faith and trust in you are unmovable in you

In your mighty name Jesus

Amen!!!

 

Luke 17: 5-6

5The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” 6And the Lord said, “If you had faith like a mustard seed, you would say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and be planted in the sea’; and it would obey you.

Numbers 23:19

God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

See Him Clearly

Mark 8 22-25

They came to Bethsaida, and some people brought a blind man and begged Jesus to touch him. 23 He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. When he had spit on the man’s eyes and put his hands on him, Jesus asked, “Do you see anything?”

24 He looked up and said, “I see people; they look like trees walking around.”

25 Once more Jesus put his hands on the man’s eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly. 26 Jesus sent him home, saying, “Don’t even go into[a] the village.”

 

Sometimes, we don’t understand what God is doing in our life. We can’t understand why he spit in our eyes. Most people would be disgusted it if someone spit in their eyes today. I can imagine the custom wasn’t that much different back then. What is God using today to get you to see him? What is God allowing the enemy to do to get you to see clearly? Are you blind and you don’t even know it? Are you still seeing shadows because you are still living in sin? Maybe, you need Jesus to put his hands on your eyes again so you can see his glory?

 

Lord, put your hands on my eyes

Remove my sins

Remove the things that cause me to be blind

Restore my sight so I can see you

So I can serve you

I want to see everything clearly

Restore my health Lord

Restore my wealth Lord

Jesus please put your hands upon my eyes

So my body is filled with your Holy Spirit

In Jesus Name

AMEN!

 

 

 

You must Fight!

It seems like you have been training your whole life for greatness. You knew that you would be great. As you get closer to your goal, you feel a sense of relief and accomplishment. The problem comes in when the unexpected happens. It could be a lot of simple things or one major blow that knocks you off of your feet. What do you do? You must fight! I said, “You have to fight, fight, and fight with the word of God!” Nothing comes easy not unless you are covered in the blood of Jesus. I got a news flash for you. Sometimes, you still have to fight with the word of God and Pray. You are great! You are the child of the Living God! God is living, so you must know that nothing is too hard for God.

Lord, I give my situation or situations to you

I ask you to fight for me

Lord, give me the strength to fight

Lord, give me the strength to endure to the end

Jesus be my armor and weapon

Lord, help me keep the faith, so I can win this race

In Jesus Name Amen
