10 nuggets of wisdom for your Saturday (Part 160)

God’s plan is not always convenient. It’s not always easy. It’s not always simple but it’s God’s plan. Trust Him. Trust His logic and His process.

You don’t just need help. You need hope. Jesus has it all. He is it all. He is hope and help. He will get you through it.

God’s love is all over you. You are the incarnation of His love. What you speak and what you do has the footprint of love. Keep spreading God’s love and keep walking in the love that changes everything!

Follow God wherever He goes. It’s not about God following you wherever you go and adapting to what you want to do. It’s about you being led by God and adapting to what He wants you to do.

Beware of the distractions that take you away from God. They seem insignificant at first until they turn into bridges of separation.

Banish conditional trust. Let your trust in God be consistent no matter what your circumstances are. Condition your conditions with faith!

There is a pathway to peace, joy and love and His name is Jesus. He will always take you to the most peaceful places and the most joyful destinations!

The reward of continued faith is a life of victory and love. Faith without love doesn’t work. Walk in faith and walk in love and you will walk in triumph all the time.

Pursue the dreams God has given you. Bring them to life with the power of faith and with the hope of the Lord in you. Don’t give up on your God-given dreams!

God loves you more than the whole world combined. His love is deeper than the Atlantic, wider than Mount Everest, bigger than all the continents and stronger than any human love that exists.

Trust God. He knows what He is doing. Trust God. He knows what you need. Trust God. He always has the perfect timing. Trust God. He will get you through this!

When you lean on God, you lean on love, peace, joy, wisdom, mercy and grace. You lean on freedom, healing and deliverance. You lean on hope, endless possibilities and miracles. Lean on God and you will lean on the power of love manifested!

There is something to be said for private praise. Moments between you and the Lord and no one else. In those moments, intimacy is built, faith is developed and hope is extended.

Things in Heaven are constantly the same. The joy, the peace, the celebration never cease. It is non stop praise and Jesus is at the center. He is the generator. The generator that can’t be turned off!

Let your words of faith be louder than the screams of fear in your head. Let your words of praise be louder than the whining that is tempting you. Let your words of love be louder than the hatred that is rampant in the world.

In the middle of the worst storm the Lord remains your best ally. In the middle of chaos the Lord still gives peace. In the middle of a crisis, the Lord still comes to your rescue.

The Lord took care of everything you will ever need on the cross. Go back to the cross and be reminded that His huge sacrifice bought your freedom and your redemption forever!

Close your eyes and go to bed at night. Jesus is wide awake and He is watching over you. Don’t worry. The Lord has you in the palm of His hand. Sleep easy!

God’s love for you will never end. You are loved and you are blessed. Remember His love every day especially on the days when the world seems to hate you and you feel like you are out of luck. God’s love for you will never change!

Talk to God about what’s going on in your life. He knows it all but He wants to hear that you rely on Him. Make Him your number confidant and you will see that He will also share secrets with you.

God opens a world of possibilities that clashes with your world of difficulties. Let Him change your world and bring great things out of nothing.

Wisdom from above destroys the misconceptions and misunderstandings of this world. God’s wisdom clarifies and polishes the ideas that need to be purified and made brand new. Out with the old patterns of thinking and in with the new ways of God’s thinking.

Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! Join the worship of the angels and let the melodies of Heaven be louder than the noise of the world. Fill your heart with praise and give a voice to the worship within. Lift up the name of Jesus. Lift His name above all names!

The Lord makes rivers in the desert. He will make peace in the middle of the storm. He will make joy in the middle of sorrow. He will make miracles in the middle of the impossible. He will make healing in the middle of sickness. He will make you whole in the middle of your brokenness.

There is hope beyond the clouds. Don’t look at the sky and see darkness. Look at the sky and see what’s above the storm. Faith will show you the sun and the beautiful weather that is coming. Rejoice over the sunshine even when it’s raining.

There is power and authority in the name of Jesus. Face the day with the name of power. Face the adversity with the name of authority. Face life with Jesus and you will see His power and His authority over everything in this world.

You’ve got Jesus. You’re going to make it. Don’t let your mind argue with what your heart knows. It’s the truth!

Every time you think you can do it on on your own and you take control of the situation, you stand in the way. You stand in the way of what is the best way. You stand in God’s way!

Take the pulse of your faith. Monitor it and adjust it. Use the Word of God to regulate your faith. Let God give you the rhythm of your faith. He knows how to change the beat of your hope.

Rebuke bitterness. It will give you a bitter spiritual taste. It will spoil your spiritual appetite and it will leave you hungry for more negativity. Find the soothing manna from Heaven.

There is only one king and His name is Jesus. Everyone should bow at His name. Every problem, every trial should bow at His name. Don’t be intimidated by how stubborn your tribulations are. Stay in faith and you will see them bow down before the King. No one and nothing is stronger than the Lord.

The fruit of the Spirit is like a necklace you wear around your spiritual neck. Every bead is a powerful fruit. Your necklace is complete. The bead of love is the biggest bead. It always activates the necklace. Wear the necklace of the Lord with pride!

The Lord is the world that your world needs. Let Him become your world. Let Him define your world. Let Him transform your world. Let the Lord be your world!

Evacuate the worry zone. Don’t linger in the fear house. Escape from the stress cabin. Run to the house of the Lord. Dwell in His house. Inhabit the premises of His love. Reside in His presence.

God speaks in a language that defies hate speech. One word from God and darkness dissipates. One verse from God and the enemy flees. One song from God and fear and worry get confused. Speak the language of the Lord and your world will hear love, peace, joy, freedom and salvation!

The enemy’s lies try to bury the truth of the Lord but like a Phoenix coming ouf of the ashes, the truth will emerge. God’s truth is bigger than the enemy’s lies. Stick with the truth and the lies will flee!

Sometimes the best way to describe Jesus is through our lifestyles, our actions and our deeds. Words don’t need to be spoken. Actions need to be spoken. Our lifestyles and our love for others speak louder than words.

There are times when what you want is not what God has planned for you. Let Him decide. Let Him plan your life. God always knows best!
