You can “cut the Bible out of the Bible” but then you will be a prisoner of your own doctrine and ideology. You will create a “new truth” that will not set you free.
The Lord listens to the songs you write in your heart. He hears the happy ones and the sad ones. He is a great listener and He will fine tune the lyrics of your heart and make sure that you have a joyful song.
The pain that is keeping you from moving forward cannot keep the Lord from operating in your life. God will operate on you, fix you, restore you and get you on your way again. This pain is temporary. Trust in the Lord whose love is permanent.
Triumph is spelled J-e-s-u-s. He is your victory. He is your breakthrough. He is your answer. He is your solution. You are going to make it. Not because of who you are but because of the One who is in you. His triumph is your victory!
Nothing can separate you from the love who died for you and rose again. Your bad circumstances cannot stand a chance against the love that always stands. Your bad circumstances cannot compete with the love that won it all on the cross. Nothing can separate you from the love that was nailed on the cross for you.
God loves everyone the same way. His favor doesn’t have a favorite. You are on the same boat as Moses, as Saul, as the drug addict, as the popular ones, as the biggest sinner around and as the homeless and the richest man alive. You can’t escape the boat of love even if you don’t like the ones sitting next to you. Jesus is sitting next to everyone on that boat!
Sometimes thinking is like diving into a bottomless ocean with no swimming gear. We keep swimming and we can’t find our way out. God is with us in the ocean and His Word keeps us afloat. His power is the boat that keeps us above water. Don’t underestimate the power of the Word of God. It will renew your thinking!
God always has a message of peace and love for you. Focus on hearing His peace and love and you will get closer to His heart.
The One who changed your world before can change it again. God will bring change into your life. A change that will be a fresh start and a fresh set of blessings. Stay encouraged!
Make your heart available to the Lord. That is the place where His inspiration is born and where beautiful deeds in the name of love are formed. Let God touch your heart so you can touch others in His name!
