Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning, for I have put my trust in You," Psalm 143:8
Beloved, no matter who we are or how much we have, trouble will visit us. Heartaches, death, sickness or other trials will come. But there’s one thing we can be assured of, God loves us. He loves us and will always love us unconditionally!
Want proof? How about Romans 5:8 which says, "While we were still sinners God showed His great love for us by sending His son, Jesus to die for our sins." He sacrificed His Son, who died willingly out of His amazing love to save us to join Him in Heaven forever.
You may feel denied, deceived, despondent, deprived, depressed or even defeated, but as the Holy Spirit within you wakens your soul, lift up your eyes and open your ears to hear our Lord say, "I have loved you and will continue to love you with an everlasting love."
"I am with you, you are never alone, and I will never leave you nor forsake you."
"Come to Me…and I will give you rest."
You will hear these words of His commitment to you and more.
As the songwriter says, "It ain’t over til God says it’s done." With Him all things are possible and with Him we too can do what we thought was improbable as we trust in Him. Yes, we are living in some dark days right now where evil and wickedness seem to abound. Look to the Holy Spirit for strength, power, guidance and clarity. You can overcome all circumstances by renewing your mind, by the empowering of the Holy Spirit, by praying in faith and by reading His messages of hope, which will propel you forward knowing Jesus has overcome the World.
Today, I want to remind you of God’s love…God cares, God shares and God will bear your burdens. He will listen to your concerns, He will hold you in His arms, and He will bathe you with compassion and mercy. By His grace He will bless you according to His promises. He will drive out your fears, and lead you out of the valleys of despair, darkness and death. Our Father will direct us into His vineyards to drink from His chalice of joy to experience His Amazing Grace!
For those of you who have not accepted Jesus the Christ as your Lord and Savior He invites you to do that right now – don’t delay! With Christ, there is no condemnation, no rejection, and no renouncement of who you are. He simply says, "If you confess with your mouth and believe in your heart, you will be saved." Romans 10:9-10. Trust and believe His Son died so you can live and enjoy His peace forever!
Remember in the days ahead, even as we weep and mourn again at the loss of those beautiful children in Parkland, FL.: "God is our refuge and strength, always there in times of trouble. So we will not fear when earthquakes come and the mountains crumble into the sea. Let the oceans roar and foam. Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge…The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is here among us. He sees, He knows and He is preparing to right every wrong! The God of Israel is our fortress" Psalm 46:1-3, 11.
