John 8:32 says that the truth will set your free! Somethings we need to be strong and courageous in facing life.
Deuteronomy 31:6-8 New International Version (NIV)
6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
7 Then Moses summoned Joshua and said to him in the presence of all Israel, “Be strong and courageous, for you must go with this people into the land that the Lord swore to their ancestors to give them, and you must divide it among them as their inheritance. 8 The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
DO NOT BE AFRAID ~
DO NOT BE DISCOURAGED!
Proverbs 16:9 New International Version (NIV)
In their hearts humans plan their course,
but the Lord establishes their steps.
THE TRUTH WILL SET YOUR FREE ~
Jesus loves you and carries you at times you just can't do things yourself. We only need to pray, seek him and believe. God is forever present and wants the best for each of us. His best is right here and our surrender to him, brings freedom to our lives.
Revelation 3:20 New International Version (NIV)
Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.
Oh I know God is able to handle whatever you face this day. He hears the cry of our hearts and answers. We must remember that his timing is not always our timing. There will be times we must wait on the Lord. There were times in my life when I wondered where God was. I know now that God remains the same and what I think about is my choice. Changing my mindset to positive and seeing how far God has brought my life. God has also connected my life to many great people. My church is a healthy church and it was there that I began a new way of thinking over 17 years ago. My life now helps others who are in pain, lost loved ones and so much more. I found the true JOY of the Lord inside my heart and mind. It doesn't mean that hard stuff doesn't happen, but I have learned in all seasons to lean to God. It's just the freedom that God gives each of us.
I hope today you will see how God has changed your life in positive ways, but know this, he will change it even more today! The truth will set you free and it's right here waiting for you to believe it. The Bible is full of stories of failures but also victories. Miracles are read about and that same God is right here today. Purpose this a good day!
I hope this has encouraged you today to live in freedom of God's word. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
