1 Peter 1:7-9 New International Version (NIV)
These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. 8 Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, 9 for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
NEVER DOUBT ~
THE POWER OF GOD
I have people who call me or text me a message to pray. They are in a need for their life or someone close to them and ask me to pray. It is their faith that reaches out and I agree in prayer with them. God knows how to connect lives and it's important to gain wisdom. Over the years, I have learned things to say and not to say to people. Guarding my words and hoping only to give hope to their situation. I might not be where you are today in life, but you are not where I am either. We each go through things and we can victory throughout our lives by the power of prayer.
I will never forget the time God moved what seemed to be impossible mountains of life. Yet, I am told in his word, nothing is impossible. That faith that comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God (Bible). God carries out his word and he knows your heart.
Luke 1:37 New International Version (NIV)
For no word from God will ever fail.
About 15 years ago, A faithful woman of God (Jawella) spoke these words every Sunday morning for the longest time as Church would begin, "God is good all the time and all the time God is good". A sentence that stuck in my head and when I face harder days, I remind myself of seeing her speak these words on Sunday mornings.
Our church was going through a change of a Pastor and our church prayed for the right man of God to come. It took about one year and we had an intern Pastor who did a great job, but wasn't the man for this church. Then one day, Eric and Angela came to be our Pastors of Hillside Christian Church in Napa. Change would begin, lives would connect and God was moving in such a great way. He continues to do so today.
WHEN YOU PRAY ~ BELIEVE
WHEN YOU PRAY ~ HOLD ON
WHEN YOU PRAY ~ KNOW GOD IS AT WORK
I have seen miracles with my own eyes. I know the power of God and I know that the enemy of our soul wants to stop us. The devil doesn't want us to prosper and be in health. But the word of God speaks health to us as our soul does prosper. I don't know what you are facing today, but God does. Continue to believe and pray. My prayers are with the readers of my blog, your family and friends. Nothing is impossible for God. I have learned over my lifetime that God changes me, which changes my outlook at life. This is a beautiful day!
LIVE IN TODAY ~
Remember you are important and so are your choices
