Hope in Jesus

I talk about hope a lot because God is a God of hope. I didn’t know that when the God I was familiar with was a God of religion and restrictions. I was always under the impression that hope was limited to a few privileged believers in God. Isn’t that sad? Some of the doctrines I subscribed to were very dismissive and void of hope. They focused on being pious and on getting rewards from God based on what I did right. Every time I made a mistake, I felt guilty and unworthy. There was no real hope for redemption or for salvation to tell you the truth. I completely misunderstood what God was all about and I had no hope. I didn’t believe that things could get better in my life. I did my best to please God but hope was never something I experienced. This all changed once I got in touch with the real God.

I got in touch with God by entering into His gates through Jesus. Jesus became my doorway to God, my doorway to Heaven and my doorway to the truth. One of the first things that stood out about Jesus was how much hope He gave me. The more I got to know Him, the more I was filled with hope. First, there was hope for salvation. I became aware of His salvation and of His role in the whole process. He had died on the cross for my sins and I could receive salvation through Him. He was the guardian of all good things and hope was part of them. When you encounter Jesus, you can’t help but become hopeful. Life takes on a new meaning. You are in the presence of hope and it changes your perspective and your outlook on life.

If you are looking for hope today, remember that it is still alive and well and you can always find hope in Jesus. Don’t look at your hopeless circumstances. Change your focus and look at Jesus. Spend time reading about Him and talking to Him. He will give you hope. You will discover that He is the hope of the world and that with Him everything is possible. With Him, life is not a series of failures and defeats. With Him, life is a series of challenges that get resolved and defeats that get defeated. Yes, Jesus will defeat your defeats. Isn’t that amazing? He will turn your worst situations into blessings and rivers of hope will flow through your life.

There is nothing that the Lord can’t change and nothing He can’t fix. When you have Jesus, you have the best chance to make it. He is a situation changer. He is a hope giver and His hope is never in vain. He doesn’t fake His hope and His promises. He keeps His promises and one of them is to give you hope to get through anything in life. You have the Savior of the world in you and with you and hope is never going to leave you. You might lose sight of it. You might forget about it. You might not believe in it but it doesn’t mean that hope is not there. It is always there and it always fulfills its purpose. Hope’s purpose is to confirm God’s goodness and it is a great witness to His faithfulness.

When you hope in Jesus, you hope in love, life-changing power and endless possibilities. You never know what God can do in your life when you have His hope in you. He can stretch possibilities and multiply blessings. He can reverse the course of your life and put you on a path where peace and joy will be strewn all over the place. God’s path for your life is paved with hope. Every step of the way you should believe there is hope. Every step of the way you should keep in mind that things are not the way they look but they are the way the Lord says they are. Faith will help you walk through the worst valleys and climb the highest mountains. The King of hope will carry you through everything and you will be able to overcome the most difficult circumstances.

Jesus is the hope you need today and you will never be disappointed when you fix your eyes on Him and you refuse to succumb to the world’s problems. Problems will never go away but neither will Jesus and if you have Jesus, you have all you need. If you have Jesus, you have all you need. Keep your hopes up. Keep your hopes in Jesus. Keep walking and trusting and you will never go astray. Hope is a blessing that will always walk by your side. Stay strong. Stay encouraged and stay hopeful. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!

God’s light

When I got eye surgery, my life completely changed. I went from having to wear contacts or glasses all the time to be being able to see all the time without any assistance. It was like night and day. I never thought that I could ever see that clearly without glasses. It was as if I had stepped into a new dimension. Everything looked so real and so true. It is hard to explain but what I can say is that it was one of the best moments of my life in terms of transformation. However, the best moment of my life, hands down, was when I got saved. It was a similar experience but on a much higher level. I went from being spiritually blind to being able to see the light. I had lived in darkness for a while. I had had glimpses of hope and glimpses of who the Lord was all about but those glimpses didn’t compare to the real thing. They were nice previews that gave me a reason to pursue Jesus. Those insights into who the Lord was were like contacts and lenses that allowed me to see the truth for a short time. When I got saved, the light became permanent and I was able to see what I had been missing my whole life. The light of the Lord is such a powerful tool in our lives and we should never underestimate it. We should cherish God’s light and His truth and keep walking in it with our spiritual eyes wide open.

The Word of God is a lamp into our feet. His Word is the lamp that can guide us into all things. We can never stay in the dark when we follow the lamp of the Lord. We should actually spend a lot of time in His Word so we can be enlightened and filled with wisdom. The amount of darkness that is in the world is huge and we need to work against so many principalities and powers. The power to counteract those evil forces is only found in the Lord and His Word gives us instructions on how to stay in His light and how to avoid the traps of darkness. When I read the Word of God, it is like a light is turned on and I can see into some of the mysteries of God. This happens when I read and study the Word prayerfully. When I get in sync with the Spirit of God, His Word comes alive and I dive into the wonderful world of our Savior. I love spending time in the Word especially when the world is so chaotic. I find peace and I find joy when I am in the Word. I strongly encourage you to make it a habit to turn on the light of the Lord and to stay under the rays of His great love. His light will refresh you and invigorate you. It will open your eyes and it will close the doors to the darkness that tries to mislead you. God’s light is the truth that you need to be set free so embrace His light, embrace His Word.

When someone turns on a light, darkness scatters. Some people would say that darkness disappears and I love that idea as well. God, the light, can make your darkness disappear when you turn on His light. Your enemies, your fears and your doubts will scatter when you turn on the light of the Lord. How do you turn it on? Like I mentioned earlier, the Word of God is the light you need and being familiar with it is crucial. Making sure that the Word of God has an important part in your life is extremely helpful. Jesus brings light and He is the light so daily communion with Him also allows you to turn on the light that will always set you free. Jesus will not only give you insights into who He is and how He made you but He will teach you how to live a fulfilling life in Him. He is the light that keeps on giving more light so don’t expect Him to ever be extinguished in your life. He is always on. You might have to adjust how you connect with Him but He is always on and always ready to shine in your life. He is like that permanent contact lens that enables you to see clearly at all times. Jesus will help you deal with all forms of spiritual blindness so stick to Him and stay close to Him. He is the best light you will ever find. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!

The God of miracles

What do you need now? What do you need for your situation to get better? You might need a miracle or at least it might feel like a miracle is what it would take for your circumstances to improve. The good news is that God is in the business of miracles. He is the inventor of miracles and He has a lot of experience with miracles. As a matter of fact, miracles are in His veins. God is a miracle. That is how I see Him. He came into my life and saved me. He is the miracle I had been waiting for so long. I am getting to know Him and I am learning about His miracle-working power. He is more proficient in miracles than anyone you will ever meet. Therefore, you should go to Him. Turn to Him today. Ask for your miracle. Pray to Him. Be a relentless prayer warrior and show Him that you know He is the miracle maker. God is a miracle maker. What seems like a miracle to us is just another normal act to Him. Parting the seas, turning water into wine are just everyday occurrences for Him. We don’t see them happen because we don’t have the faith for it. It sometimes takes corporate faith for major things like that to take place. Get to know the God of miracles. In the Bible you will find many accounts of His miracles and you will be amazed by His power and by what He can do. He can do the impossible. If there is one thing you should retain from this message is that God can do the impossible. Your miracle is not that far away and it is not something God has to come up with after a long period of reflection and planning. God can reverse any situation, restore anything that needs to be fixed and improve any circumstances. There is something great that will happen to you when you rely on God. You don’t have to bring a huge amount of faith to Him. All He needs is your mustard seed of faith and a heart that is open and willing to receive from Him. The God of miracles can take your situation and make it so much better that you will completely forget that you were in distress at one point.

The parting of the Red Sea is one of the miracles in the Bible that has had the most impact on me. It is an act of God that represents what God can do very well. Who could part the seas and make a path for people to walk on if not God? I am sure that with today’s technology men could do something similar but we are talking about an event that took place centuries ago when such a thing was inconceivable. I have been faced with a Red Sea of my own before. A barrier, a huge hurdle, an impossible situation that kept me from reaching a place of peace. I have contemplated that sea and thought many times that there was no way I would be able to go through it or to come out of it in one piece. My heart used to get broken a lot and I would find its many pieces on the threshold of hope with too much discouragement to even think of repair and restoration. However, God has come through for me all the time. He has picked up the pieces and put my heart back together better than it had been before. God is not intimidated by the seas. It doesn’t matter how big and rocky the oceans of your life are. God can part them and neutralize them. With one word He can make them move away from your path and He can make you walk on dry land. Think of the dry land as the path to your miracles. Many are the paths of the Lord so be assured that no sea can stop Him and He will not only make your path clear but He will make sure that it leads to a great miracle.

When I started thinking about how miracles are nothing extraordinary for God, it helped my thinking align with God’s. Miracles are amazing events that defy logic and nature. God is an amazing God who defies logic and nature and it is in His nature to create miracles. Trust and believe that the miracle you need today is something that God will do for you very easily. Trust and believe that God loves you very much and He is more than willing to shower you with miracles. Trust and believe that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever and He has never stopped performing miracles. Join the group of believers that know without a doubt that miracles are for us today. Join the group of believers that understand that God is the miracle-worker that the world needs today. The outcome of your current situation doesn’t hinge upon your abilities, your money, your intellect and your luck. It all depends on your Savior and He is the God of miracles. He is the One who is going to solve your problem. He is the One you should put in charge of your situation by faith. It is not over yet. Your miracle can still take place. God is not too late and He is not limited by time and space. He has enough room to create something miraculous in your life and He always has the perfect timing. You are so blessed! You are a child of the God of miracles! Stretch out your hand over your sea of problems and the Lord will drive it away from you and make a way for dry land and there will be a path to your miracle!

Before you go to bed tonight

For years as a child I was told never to go to bed angry. It was almost like a superstition in my mind that if I did go to bed upset and angry at someone, something bad would happen to me. Did it stop me from being upset? Not always. Sometimes the fury, the frustration and the anger were too strong. I don’t get mad easily but just like anyone else there are things that push my buttons and once those buttons have been messed around with I can’t contain the anger. I should say that it is much more manageable now and I have learned a few things along the way that have helped me deal with negative feelings at the end of the day. Anything negative should be dealt with before bed and I am going to tell you why it is so important.

Anger, frustration and irritation are not from God. They are operators from the enemy that try to discredit the Lord in us by making us act against His way of being and by dragging us into a path of negativity where unrest is prevalent and where one negative step leads to another. Each of one of those steps aim at driving us away from the Lord. If anger is what we let in and feed our hearts every day, a door will form that will keep the Lord outside. Eventually that door will turn into a wall that will become a stronghold that will be hard to get rid of. This goes for any negative feeling. Anything that is the opposite of the fruit of the Spirit will cause destruction and chaos in us. They can torment us and keep us in a state of perpetual confusion. Now, if any of those negative feelings are with us before we go to bed, they will find a fertile ground at night to grow roots in and they will stay with us longer. They can easily take over when they are left standing there at night. They can also get in the way of our bedtime prayers and they can keep us awake for a long time. Our minds are powerful and when they are bombarded with negativity, they fester more negativity because overthinking is a trap in which we can fall easily. Release any negative feelings before you go to bed.

I find the time before bed to be sacred. It is the time when I can unwind and when I can tell the Lord how much I appreciate all He did during the day. I try not to end the day on a sour note. Gratitude and thankfulness are what we should end the day with. They should be with us all day but I see the importance of having them tuck us into bed. They always make us more receptive to the things of the Lord. A grateful heart is a heart that knows God’s value and that doesn’t take Him for granted. Imagine how little gratitude there is in our hearts when we go to bed angry or filled with negative thoughts. It is hard to be grateful when we are bitter. It is also hard to be bitter when we are filled with gratitude. When you get overwhelmed by feelings that are distancing you from the Lord, make sure you cleanse yourself of those feelings. Attack them with praise. Attack them with prayers of gratitude. You don’t have to be mundane. Just tell the Lord how much you love Him and how much you adore Him. Just say it in your own words. Fill the atmosphere with gratitude. Fill the atmosphere with hope. Rebuke the negativity. Make yourself a bed of peace when you stay focused on Jesus before bed.

Paul addresses the revelation that it is not good to go to bed angry. He specifies that going to bed angry will make room for evil. Evil can get through the cracks of our vulnerability and make itself comfortable. Before you go to bed, face the music and make it stop. Face the negative chatter and silence it. Get into the Word of God. Do something nice, something positive for someone else. Talk to Jesus. Lift Him up. Fill your mind with His positive words. Renounce the feelings that are causing you to be angry. If you need to forgive someone, don’t wait until tomorrow. Forgive them before you go to bed. Keep your mind clear and keep your spirit open to love. When you do, you allow the Holy Spirit to flow freely. Stay on His wavelength. Keep walking in love. Stay grateful and let your last words, your last thoughts and your last actions of the day be a manifestation of your gratitude to the Lord. Before you go to bed, spend time with the Lord.

10 nuggets of wisdom for your Saturday (Part 120)

Keep your emotions on a tight leash. Don’t let them get out of control. Control them with the leash of rebuke. Rebuke them and reject them in the name of Jesus. Use your authority over them even when they come back to bite you.

Your faith might be sleeping right now but God can wake it up. Ask for a wake-up call. Pray and God will strengthen you and revive the mustard seed in you.

God is about to drop things on your lap that you never expected. Keep believing, keep trusting. The best is yet to come!

Check your spiritual temperature and be sure to call on the Holy Spirit if you have a fever. He is the best doctor and the best counselor. He will get you back on your feet in no time!

If we could be more in sync with the beat of God’s heart we would be more in harmony with love, peace, faith and joy.

Give God the microphone so He can speak over your life before you sing songs of sadness and despair. God knows the right tunes for your life and He will change the music that has been bringing you down.

You have God’s support. You’re going to make it. You are not going to fail. Repeat that to yourself as much as you can. God is on your side!

There is a breakthrough around the corner. It is going to come out of nowhere. God is going to show up when you least expect it. Don’t give up! You’re almost there!

God is always listening and smiling. We are often deaf to His voice and frowning. Turn that frown upside down and prick up your spiritual ears. God is always talking so be ready to be listening.

There is a reason for you to celebrate. There is a reason for you to smile again. There is a reason for you to rest. There is a reason for you to love again. There is a reason to have hope again. The reason is Jesus!

What faith does

Sometimes it’s hard to imagine that good things can happen to us. Sometimes it’s hard to see a bright future when all we’ve seen is a miserable life. Sometimes good things seem too good to be true. Sometimes misery is our number one enemy. Sometimes hope is not on the agenda of our lives. Sometimes peace is not our companion. Despite all that we have a Lord who is not the God of the sometimes but the God of all the time. He is good all the time and He is able all the time. With Him we can take a step back and rethink how we see life. It can be dismal and it can look bad but the One who can change the worst life is on our side. He is the One you should be looking at and not our situation. Faith shows us God’s reality and that is the one reality that we should be focusing on. What does it look like? It looks like the opposite of all the bad things we can imagine. It looks like the opposite of what the enemy wants us to believe. It looks good and it looks bright. It is not a picture perfect put together by the expectations of the world. It is God’s picture perfect and it can turn a bleak image into a beautiful portrait.

Today I want to remind you that sometimes life is bad but God is good all the time. A bad day or a bad month don’t make God bad. He is not the source of our problems. He is the author of our solutions. Just because we can’t see the end of the tunnel doesn’t mean that there is no end. The end of the tunnel of torment will come. You will be propelled to the end when you least expect it and faith can show you the end way before it happens. It is faith that should be drawing a picture of our reality. Imagine living a life where faith is all we know, all we see and all we go by? That life is attainable. God provides it and we can embark on it. It is a powerful journey. The journey of faith doesn’t ignore the trials but it doesn’t give them value. Faith always values God’s promises over the world’s problems. Faith sees how God can turn bad into good. Faith is an eyesight. It is the eyesight that gives you access to the world of the impossible. It gives you access to a world where God is always in control and your emotions have no control. It is also a language that contradicts the language of the world.

My recommendation is that you adopt the language of faith. Learn how to speak it fluently. Get the lingo from God’s Word. Practice speaking faith as much as possible. Remember that faith is not influenced by emotions and feelings so don’t let them get in the way. Speak above your feelings. Speak above the pain. Speak against the thoughts that are keeping you captive. Speak with authority against the army of the enemy that is trying to destroy you. Speak great things into existence. Speak miracles into your life. Speak against the storms of doubt. Speak what you want to see happen in agreement with God’s will. Just like any other language, faith has a grammatical structure. There are subjects and action verbs. The main subject is the Lord and the action verbs are verbs of confidence, verbs of power, verbs of love and verbs of accomplishment. Faith speaks in the present tense about events that are in the future. Faith sees now even though nothing is happening. Faith has the confidence that every good thing can happen. Faith doesn’t doubt and it doesn’t use the phrase “what if” unless it is in a positive context. Faith keeps every sentence God-centered, love-centered and hope-centered. Faith is an active mode. It is not passive. It is reactive and it is productive. It will always produce great fruit in our lives. Speak the language of faith more and more and become fluent. It will change the way you approach everything in life in Jesus’ name!

The Holy Spirit and you are a team

“Two is better than one” is a popular saying that is very biblical. We are called to partner with the Holy Spirit. We were never meant to do this life alone. You and the Spirit of God form a partnership that can grow into an amazing relationship depending on how much you nurture it. The Bible also talks about the power of two or more people. There is something special when you are connected with someone else in the Lord. The power of a good union is tremendous. This also means that if we are connected to the wrong people or to the wrong influences than the results are more catastrophic than if we were by ourselves. Two people connected whether for good or bad reasons can do a lot. I love that I can pray with certain people and I know that our prayers are stronger together. Today I want to encourage you to partner with the Holy Spirit. Talk to Him. Include Him in all you do. He is a Person and He wants to be in contact with you all the time. When you flow with Him, you go down rivers of joy, peace, strength and faith.

The Holy Spirit gives strength. It took me a while to realize that. When we are in touch with Him and we let Him guide us, we receive strength. He gives us the strength to do anything. We can’t expect to have all the answers and to know what to do all the time. That is why recognizing that the Holy Spirit is the main Person we need to bond with is crucial. Family and friends are extremely important but as children of God we ought to think about His family first. We have a connection that is precious and that should be taken into consideration all the time. I love singing praises to the Lord. When I do, I let the Holy Spirit express Himself in me. There are so many things we can do that allow us to let the Holy Spirit use as a revolving door of blessings and of love. The Spirit will always magnify Jesus. Every time you think about Him or you feel led to share Him or talk to Him, you are being led by the Holy Spirit. That partnership is being put in motion when you glorify the Lord. In order to have a solid connection with the Spirit, we should read the Word of God and pray every day. Pray for others and pray for discernment and wisdom. The Holy Spirit can give you all of that. He is the best partner there is. I thank Jesus for the Holy Spirit every day.

There is a beautiful love story about you and your best friend. The Lord is your best friend and His Spirit will make this story happen in an amazing way. Be like David and worship the Lord with the harp of an open heart and the flute of adoration. Keep your heart open to the Lord and let your words indicate that you adore Him. You are a team. The Holy Spirit and you form a great team and it is important that you act and think as a member of that dynamic team. Your teammate is extraordinary and His awesome nature will impact your nature and make you a follower of the Lord. Maximize your time with your teammate. Let Him coach you and let Him help you. Two is better than one and with the Holy Spirit you will always be stronger and better!

10 nuggets of wisdom for your Saturday (Part 118)

God has a plan for your life. Remember that it is His plan and not yours. He will work it out for you. He will implement His plan and He will provide. Trust in His plan. Let Him be the God who has a plan for your life.

God didn’t call you to be someone else. He called you to be you. It’s when you are you that you will see the true power of you. You are unique. You are amazing. You are loved. You are meant for great things. You are meant to be the child God created. Let Him be your Father. Be His child!

God rejoices over you. He is speaking about you with the cloud of witnesses cheering for you. God is watching over you. He has His eyes on you and His angels are around you. God is in love with you. He pours love into you and His love is in His presence all over you.

Life can teach lessons that we need to repeat over and over again. God teaches lessons that will get us to the next chapter when we pay attention.

Sometimes we just tear down the walls of the house of the Lord with our unbelief and our free will. Let’s keep His house standing. Let’s keep faith as the foundation for His house and let’s build up the walls with hope.

Your prayers should not be minimized. Your words of hope should not be taken for granted. Your praises should not be diminished. Your testimony should not be silenced. Your heart should be strengthened and your faith should be highlighted. Don’t give up on what brings you close to God!

Some people will read and receive the Word of God in you. Some people will never learn how to read God in you. Some people are waiting for you to teach them how to get to know the One who lives in you.

God’s love is not the theme of an episode on the soap opera of your life. Leave the drama behind. God’s love is the main plot of your life. Love is the reason why you breathe. God’s love is the reason why you live.

Perk up and stay alert in the Lord. Drink the cup of His zeal and the cup of His awakening. Stay awake with God. Stay awake through His Spirit. Don’t slumber and don’t snooze spiritually. The adrenaline of the Spirit of God will keep you going.

God is knocking on the door of your heart every day. If you let Him in, He will come and rejoice with you. Pray that you hear the knocks. Pray that you see the door and that you can turn the handle even when your mind is trying to keep you inside the house of chaos and confusion.

REMEMBER THE POWER OF GOD

The enemy is out to rob, destroy and kill. In this pandemic season focusing on the thief, the destroyer and the killer is very easy. He seems to have taken over a big part of the world and a huge section of our emotions. He is deeply rooted in the minds of millions of people playing movies of destruction and fear. The horror movies he has been projecting in our heads are endless. We get a commercial break when we see some hope but then something comes up and we are thrusted back into a negative movie whose end we can’t see.

What the enemy is trying to do is to present himself as powerful. He is a dictator that prevents peace from ruling our hearts. However, he is also a defeated foe. The Lord conquered him on the cross. He is trying to make us forget the power of the cross, the power of the Lord. He robs us of hope but the reality is that hope is still alive. It rose from the grave and the enemy can’t put it back there. He gives us the illusion that hope was killed but we can’t adhere to his lies. He is keeping too many people in his web of lies and when we have faith in his lies, he has power over us. Faith in God brings death to the lies. Faith in God reveals His power and His glory. Today I am here to remind you of the power of God. God is still the God of miracles. Resurrection Sunday is an every day reality when we choose faith over fear and doubt.

God is going to restore what the enemy has stolen. He is going to rebuild what was destroyed and He is going to give life to the dreams and visions that were killed by the enemy. Today you can decide to trust in the Lord and in His power. Today you can decide to turn a deaf ear to the enemy’s lies. Today you can push the reset button and go back to where God is dominating your life. Today you can evict the dictator and put Jesus back on the throne. There is so much power in the Lord that His power can heal every single person who has ever walked the earth. There is so much power in the Lord that His blessings can fill billions of baskets every day and be distributed to every single person who has walked the earth. The thing is that the enemy doesn’t want us to know that or to remember that. He blinds us with his darkness but the Lord opens our eyes to the light of His truth. The truth remains that the power of God is available today. It is here to stay and it is here to protect and bless you. God’s power will make you strong.

You will make it through this tough time and you will come out of it victorious. God’s power will give you the strength you thought you did not have yesterday because of how beaten you have been by this rough season. Your strength comes from the power of God. Plug into the power every day. Tap into it through prayer and praise. Praise brings God unto the scene and He shows up with His power. There is power to change every aspect of every part of your life today. God’s power is going to come in and sweep all the dirt and all the dust the enemy has dumped on you these past few months. God’s power can restore anything and it can mend anything that is broken. This pandemic is not the end. God’s power will put an end to it in your life. It might take a while for this virus to go away but God’s power will protect and bless you in all your ways. With God all things are possible. God’s power turns the impossible into possible. Don’t forget that God has authority over all the earth. Let Him be the authority in your life. You might have fallen but the Lord is raising you up by His power as we speak. Stay encouraged. God’s power is not going anywhere!

10 nuggets of wisdom for your Saturday (Part 117)

God set you free. You are free indeed. Declare it every day before your mind puts you in a mental jail. There is freedom over chains in Jesus’ name!

If you can be anywhere, be in prayer. That’s the best place to be. You will find God there. You will find peace. You will find answers and you will find solutions.

We’ve got problems. God’s got answers. Let’s trade our problems for God’s answers in faith. Your biggest problem could be that you don’t know how to hear the voice of the One who has the biggest solutions. Ask for help and you will hear from Heaven.

Stay in the lane of praise. Don’t veer to the left where whining is. Don’t go to the right where despair lives. Stay in the lane of praise and keep your eyes on Jesus!

If God can do it, you can have it. God can do anything so you can have anything when you stay in faith.

God can rewrite your story. Trust Him with the pen and give Him your ink of faith. He will use it and write the beautiful story that is meant to be your destiny.

It doesn’t matter where you are because God is everywhere. He will find you in the depth of sorrow and He will meet you at the door of desperation.

God will bump you up when the world brings you down. God will take you to the mountaintops when the world takes you to the valleys. God will lift you up when you lift His name above your circumstances.

There are two worlds; the world of the negative and the world of the positive. Decide to stay where the positive lives. Become a permanent resident of that world. God rules over that territory. Let Him be the King of your world. Distance yourself from negativity.

Jesus rubbed mud on someone’s eyes and healed Him from blindness. Give the Lord the dirt that is keeping you from seeing Him and He will change the way you see life. Let Him open your eyes. He knows the best way to do it!
