It’s NOT Over Yet!

February 18, 2016

Psalm 42:5 AMPC … Why are you cast down, O my inner self? And why should you moan over me and be disquieted within me? Hope in God and wait expectantly for Him, for I shall yet praise Him, my Help and my God.

Psalm 43:5 AMPC … Why are you cast down, O my inner self? And why should you moan over me and be disquieted within me? Hope in God and wait expectantly for Him, for I shall yet praise Him, Who is the help of my [sad] countenance, and my God.

Is your soul down cast?
Is your countenance sad?
Is your heart heavy?

Remember who is your Help –Ps 121:1
Look up to the Maker of heaven and earth –Ps 121:2
It’s not over yet!
Even when you think you are finished
It’s not over yet!

Keep on fighting the good fight –1Tim 6:12
Yet praise the Lord
He is your help and shield –Ps 33:20
He is your strength and glorious sword –Ps 28:7;Dt 33:29
He has the last word –1Pe 1:25
Never give up –Lk 18:1
It’s not over yet!

Psalm 43:1-5 AMPC … Judge and vindicate me, O God; plead and defend my cause against an ungodly nation. O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man!
2 For You are the God of my strength [my Stronghold—in Whom I take refuge]; why have You cast me off? Why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
3 O send out Your light and Your truth, let them lead me; let them bring me to Your holy hill and to Your dwelling.
4 Then will I go to the altar of God, to God, my exceeding joy; yes, with the lyre will I praise You, O God, my God!
5 Why are you cast down, O my inner self? And why should you moan over me and be disquieted within me? Hope in God and wait expectantly for Him, for I shall yet praise Him, Who is the help of my [sad] countenance, and my God.

When the waves are kicking you under
Hang on just a little bit longer
The Lord is able
-Eph 3:20-21
BELIEVE! 

He’s going to turn it all around
It’s just a matter of time

He makes everything beautiful in His time -Ecc 3:11

It’s just a matter of time

Put everything in His hands -Ps 31:15; Isa 41:10,13
Just wait and SEE! -Ps 27:13-14

***

Psalm 31:15My times are in Your hand …

Isaiah 41:10,13 NET … Don’t be afraid, for I am with you! Don’t be frightened, for I am your God!  I strengthen you – yes, I help you – yes, I uphold you with my saving right hand! … For I am the Lord your God, the one who takes hold of your right hand, who says to you, ‘Don’t be afraid, I am helping you.’

Psalm 27:13-14 NET … Where would I be if I did not believe I would experience the Lord’s favor in the land of the living? Rely on the Lord! Be strong and confident!
Rely on the Lord!

Small Beginnings

March 16, 2013

Do not despise small beginnings -Zech4:10
It’s NOT about the size of the seed you sow
It’s about My SPIRIT that makes it grow!
-Zech4:6

Mark 4:26-32And He was saying, “The kingdom of God is like a man who casts seed upon the soil; 27 and he goes to bed at night and gets up by day, and the seed sprouts and grows—how, he himself does not know. 28 The soil produces crops by itself; first the blade, then the head, then the mature grain in the head. 29 But when the crop permits, he immediately puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come.”

30 And He said, “How shall we picture the kingdom of God, or by what parable shall we present it? 31 It is like a mustard seed, which, when sown upon the soil, though it is smaller than all the seeds that are upon the soil, 32 yet when it is sown, it grows up and becomes larger than all the garden plants and forms large branches; so that the birds of the air can nest under its shade.”

Don’t get discouraged or lose heart!
Like the farmer – plant and expectantly wait
Know this process takes time
Don’t become frustrated or give up
Know in due time you will reap.
-Ja5:7;Gal6:9

I AM utterly trustworthy and faithful! -1Thes5:24;Phil1:6

See Giants? Look for the BREAD!

February 13, 2013

Numbers 14:8-9If the Lord delights in us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us, ‘a land which flows with milk and honey.’ Only do not rebel against the Lord, nor fear the people of the land, for they are our bread; their protection has departed from them, and the Lord is with us. Do not fear them.

Don’t rebel against the Lord
Or fear the giants
They are BREAD for us.
Their protection is removed
But the Lord is with us.
Fear Not!

Trust in the Lord
Go forward in FAITH
Believe and act on God’s promises!
The giants are BREAD
They are there to strengthen you!

***

How was Caleb able to see the giants as bread instead of enemies too big to go up against?

But My servant Caleb, because he has had a different spirit and has followed Me fully, I will bring into the land which he entered, and his descendants shall take possession of it. -Nu14:24

He had a “different spirit” – a spirit which totally filled, armed and satisfied him. As Caleb believed and acted on what God told him – the Lord gave him victory!

Psalm 144:1 Praise be to the LORD my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.

Word Study

From NetBible Nu14:9

  • bread[03899] = food, nourishment, fruit
    *from [03898] = to fight, do battle, make war, to eat, use as food

From NetBible Nu14:24

  • follow fully[04390] = to be filled, be armed, be satisfied

From NetBible Ps144:1

  • battle[04421] = to fight, to war
    *from [03898] = to fight, do battle, make war, to eat, use as food

.

If you see giants before you and find yourself in the midst of a big battle – look for the BREAD= provision, nourishment, instruction from the LORD. Trust and follow Him fully. The Lord will give the victory!

Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” -Mt4:4

.

Children’s BREAD this seems related …

One way to SEE the BREAD
Persist and don’t give up
Worship and pray at the Lord’s feet{Son of David=Messiah}
This precedes receiving the children’s bread-the cure …
🙂
AND the daughter the mother was wanting Jesus to heal wasn’t even present! WOW!
***

Matthew 15:21-25 AMP

21 And going away from there, Jesus withdrew to the district of Tyre and Sidon.

22 And behold, a woman who was a Canaanite from that district came out and, with a [loud, troublesomely urgent] cry, begged, Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! My daughter is miserably and distressingly and cruelly possessed by a demon!

23 But He did not answer her a word. And His disciples came and implored Him, saying, Send her away, for she is crying out after us.

24 He answered, I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

25 But she came and, kneeling, worshiped Him and kept praying, Lord, help me!

26 And He answered, It is not right (proper, becoming, or fair) to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.

27 She said, Yes, Lord, yet even the little pups (little whelps) eat the crumbs that fall from their [young] masters’ table.

28 Then Jesus answered her, O woman, great is your faith! Be it done for you as you wish. And her daughter was cured from that moment.

 

Let Hope Rise

January 7, 2011

Hebrews 10:35-37 So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. Patient endurance is what you need now, so you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that He has promised. FOR YET IN A VERY LITTLE WHILE, HE WHO IS COMING WILL COME, AND WILL NOT DELAY.

Be strong and do not give up!

Remember it’s during the darkest part of the night
That the bright morning star appears
Before the glory on the wings of dawn.

Hope rises in the darkest part of the night.

Wait, hope for and expect the LORD; Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Yes, wait for, hope for and expect the LORD! -Ps 27:14

Dawn, the Rising Son is never far behind the morning star.

Be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded. – 2 Chron 15:7

For those who revere His Holy name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. — Mal 4:2

“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.” … To him who overcomes and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations— ‘He will rule them with an iron scepter; he will dash them to pieces like pottery’— just as I have received authority from my Father. I will also give him the morning star. –Rev 2:16, 26-28

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. -Rom 15:13

Keep Walking! Don’t Give Up!

October 26, 2010

Matthew 14:25-32
Now in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them, walking on the sea. 26 And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out for fear.
27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid.”
28 And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.”
29 So He said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus. 30 But when he saw that the wind was boisterous,[a] he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!”
31 And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” 32 And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.

Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus!
Don’t give up,
Keep in step, keep walking forward

Listen for His voice
Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me? -Jer 32:27

Listen for His voice
He makes a way where there is no way.

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible. -Mt 19:26

:)
Nothing is Impossible
Words and Music by Eugene L. Clark

Nothing is impossible when you put your trust in God;
Nothing is impossible when you’re trusting in His Word.
Hearken to the voice of God to thee;
“Is there anything too hard for Me?”
Then put your trust in God alone and rest upon His Word;
For ev’rything, O, ev’rything, yes ev’rything is possible with God.

Galatians 5:25 AMP
If we live by the [Holy] Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. [If by the Holy Spirit we have our life in God, let us go forward walking in line, our conduct controlled by the Spirit.]

From Lyn McSweeney:

Don’t give up now

You are nearly there

You need to take the last step

To climb the last stair

You’ve been tested and tried

You’ve been through the fire

You’ve been in the wilderness

Where God did inspire

You’ve been broken and battered

But you’ve stood tall and strong

You’ve had a struggle

But you knew all along

That Jesus was standing

Right by your side

He has watched as you blossomed

His beautiful bride

He saw the tears

When the trials were rough

But Father knew

When you’d had just enough

Don’t give up now

You are nearly there

You need to take the last step

And climb the last stair

I was just looking at this word — blossomed,
the unfolding of a pure white lily
the release of a sweet fragrance
an incense
a scent strong enough to fill the whole earth
released
unfolding
white wings spread — anticipating flight, release.

Oh, that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest. -Ps
55:6

YESSSSSSSS!!! LIBERATED, “LOOSED, FREED, RELEASED’ IN THROUGH, BY CHRIST JESUS, (((LORD OF OUR BREAKTHROUGH)))!!!

Psalm 40:2 NASB … He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay, And He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm.

Look! From: Ps 40:2

*footnote 1: pit of destruction, the place of death is sometimes depicted as a roaring sea

Trust in the Lord
Acknowledge Him in all your ways
Lean on Him
He will make your footsteps firm
No matter the storm or the noise from the raging sea
He will not let your foot slip, He is faithful!
Step forward
Trust Him to establish your steps
The work of your hands
Bloom upon the Rock
Let Him unfold the rose
A beautiful scent released
Filling the heavens
The rose planted, established upon the Rock
Blooms!

 

Trust in the LORD forever, For in GOD the LORD, we have an everlasting Rock. -Isa 26:4

2 Corinthians 1:21-22 AMP … But it is God Who confirms and makes us steadfast and establishes us [in joint fellowship] with you in Christ, and has consecrated and anointed us [enduing us with the gifts of the Holy Spirit];
22[He has also appropriated and acknowledged us as His by] putting His seal upon us and giving us His [Holy] Spirit in our hearts as the security deposit and guarantee [of the fulfillment of His promise].
