"A Life of Miracles"

Even though it may seem like the bottom has fallen out of your life… all Hell has broken loose… you’re holding on by a string… sinking fast with no life-boat or raft in sight…

I want you to know that God cares… he has “not” forgotten you… he loves you… and in spite of the way it may appear… he has good things in store for you and is working behind the scenes on your behalf… moving things around… rearranging and causing situations to change and come together just for you…

God neither sleeps nor slumber and is constantly on the job… while you are sleeping… He is still working on your behalf to “Protect and Bless” you… You can rest confidently in his loving arms knowing that even though things may look hay-wire and crazy right now… he has it all under control and is working everything out for…

Keep me as the apple of your eye

Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings.

Psalm 17:8
                 Does the Lord look at you that intently? Are you that precious to Him? Yes! You are a precious living stone to build a house of praise to God (I Peter 2:4-5). His eyes are on you and His ears are attentive to your prayers (Psalm 34:15). He is the great omnipresent God who sees each individual, including you, and looks after you (Genesis 16:13). Why, you are so valuable to Him that He knows how many hairs you have on your head (Matthew 10:30).

Do not fear them

“Like a scarecrow in a melon patch, their idols cannot speak; they must be carried because they cannot walk. Do not fear them; they can do no harm nor can they do any good.” Jeremiah 10:5 (NIV) Say this as a prayer – In faith, I know this to be true: By God’s grace, I am able take control of my thoughts, weeding out the ones that don’t belong—those that might lead me away from God (2 Corinthians 10:5). This is a choice I make; I am not helpless in controlling my mind. God has given me the mind of Christ to teach me how to think like Jesus thinks. God has already given me powerful tools “for smashing warped philosophies, tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God, fitting every loose thought and emotion and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:5 MSG). These God-tools are ready for me to use and they clear the ground for my growth toward maturity (2 Corinthians 10:6 MSG). It is true that I am more than a conqueror through God, who loves me (Romans 8:37). I know that my fight is not against flesh and blood; it is not against my brothers and sisters. They may be used by the rulers, authorities, and dark powers of this world, but people of flesh, blood, and bone are not the ones who fight against me (Ephesians 6:12). Because this is true, God tells me to use his weapons, such as “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control” (Galatians 5:22–23 NIV). God renews my spirit and calls me to a single-minded purpose, aligned with his heart and mind (Psalm 51:10; James 1:5–8; James 4:8). Lord, I hold all this to be true, and my objective is to rely on your divine power to demolish any strongholds.
