Accept The Help

'We don't have a priest (God) who is out of touch with our reality. He's been through weakness and testing, experienced it all - all but the sin. So let's walk right up to him and get what HE IS SO READY TO GIVE. TAKE THE MERCY, ACCEPT THE HELP.'
Hebrews 4:15-16

It's easy to think that God is 'way out there' and he has no clue what we are going through and that he has has more important things to do than listen to us.

Today I challenge you to approach Jesus with the confidence you have with your best friend , holding nothing back, he can handle what you are going through, he is not surprised....take the mercy and accept the help!!

He loves you, he cares and he wants to get involved in what you are going through!

'Look at him; give him your warmest smile. Never hide your feelings from him.'
'When I was desperate, I called out,
And God got me out of a tight spot ' Psalm 34:5-6

Who Are You??

'I acted out of who I was, not how I felt' ....a little line but of whole lot of truth that I found this morning God talking about himself in Ezekiel.

I believe God asks us to do the same, act out of who WE ARE not how we feel in the moment. Do you need a reminder of who you are??
-There is a purpose and a plan for your life Jeremiah 29:11
-YOU are wonderfully made Psalm 139:14
-YOU are Not forgotten...EVER Isaiah 49:16
-YOU are a child of the most high God 1John 3:1

So next time you feel as though you are forgotten, worthless and that there is no hope for the future....kick those thoughts aside and remember these truths!!

Remembering these truths will cause you to act differently!!

When before you were insecure and it stopped you from reaching out, truth will give you confidence. When before you didn't know if you were coming or going the truth will tell you that you do have purpose!

I challenge you to fall in love with Jesus He will show you all you ARE and were created to be!!

Have a great day friends!
Love you!

SHOUT


Joshua was leading the people around the walls of Jericho, God commanded them to be quiet and not speak a word as they walked around the wall seven times and then after they had obeyed, God commanded them to shout and the walls came tumbling down.
I believe sometimes God asks us to do the same thing today, He asks us not to speak of all the problems we are facing but to instead be quiet and keep on walking. Then there comes a time when He asks us to SHOUT!! Lift up our hands in praise and worship to the king of kings and then He does what only He can do and cause the barriers, the strongholds and the things that have had us bound to come tumbling down just as the walls of Jericho did!!!
Praise God!!
Whatever you are facing no matter how difficult it may be God has victory in store for you.....will you trust Him today and believe He has a perfect plan for you, sometimes it just takes us shutting up long enough to understand what He is doing before we can shout!!!
Love you friends!!

**notice also their victory hadn't come yet, they were acting in obedience and shouting out in victory before the walls fall down!! Worshipping and praising in victory is easy it's praising before we see victory that is the real challenge and yet God met them right there and the walls fell down!!!! Hallelujah!!
