HANDLING THE DAY
"I can do ALL THINGS through Christ who strengthens me"
Sometimes we wonder how in the world are we going to handle today. The Bible says, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me". Philippians 4:13. Some of us even wake up stressed, been there, done that one.... (no matter how long you have been a Christian, sometimes you still feel that you can't make it. So you cover up with your mask and act strong around others when you know you are falling apart).
We must know without God we can't do anything. We also make our problems harder than they seem because we put the emphasis on the actual problem than relying on the problem solver.....you feel me?
Once we recognize that God has our life in total control, our minds wont be so overwhelmed with daily stress.... because He is our strength, and that He has already taken care of the day...
Make sure you ask God to help you and to not be afraid to be firm and speak joy in your life on this day, and be real and ask Him to keep you calm so you can handle your day!!
Now enjoy your day In Jesus Name!
PSALMS 23 "TRUST GOD"
PSALM 23 - “We Must Trust God”
We have the hardest time trusting in God.We say we trust Him, but do we really?In 23rd Psalms we will be able to see that God has everything in control of our lives and that to trust Him.
It’s hard to trust something that yo don’t see….But Hebrews 11:1, “NOW faith
is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”
Explanation: Faith begins as hope and indeed is unseen; so many doubt that it is
real.What follows is the proof that
faith is a reality that can be trusted.
(You may say, God will provide….just trust Him…and you say, “I just don’t
see it so I have to do it my way, God doesn’t work fast enough for me, or I’ll
just immediately get on the phone and do it myself, we are so quick to answer our
own prayers ourselves”) We don’t even allow God to work it out for us….and
then we MESS UP…
GOD IS OUR CARING PROVIDER
1The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
God is our a shepherd who provides and cares for His
sheep. We have need of nothing because our Shepherd provides everything.
2He makes me to lie down in
green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.
We can rest and relax knowing that God is
taking care of us. With God leading us, we experience peace and provision. We
need guidance to safe pastures, and we too need a Shepherd to guide us to
safety and lead us to how God provides.
GOD CARES FOR US SPIRITUALLY
3He restores my soul; he leads
me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Our soul is comprised of our mind, will, and emotions. There’s
not one person on the planet who hasn’t experienced some pain, disappointment or grief in their soul. But the good
news is this: our
Shepherd cares for us, and He is able to restore our souls. He
restores and heals our minds and emotions, renewing and strengthening our very
lives! When we submit to His will and His way, we can be sure that He’ll guide
us along the path that is best for us. And for the sake of His name and His
glory, He guides our wills to line up with His.
4Yea, though I walk through the
valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your
rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
According to the Bible, sheep
are easy targets for predators. Additionally, because sheep wander off and get
lost, putting themselves in great danger. Shepherds often risked their own
lives to rescue their sheep. They carried a rod and staff to protect and
correct their sheep; they beat off any beast trying to attack, and they prodded
sheep who were going the wrong way to steer them back to safety.It’s the same with us: “All we like sheep
have gone astray; we have turned, every one, to his own way” (Isaiah 53:6).
Sometimes we wander off and get into trouble, but we can trust that God cares for us and
will protect and guide us if we’ll allow Him to. When we go through difficult times, we don’t need to be
afraid because we know that our Shepherd is with us in the midst of it. We can
take comfort that he protects and guides us with His rod and staff, walking
with us in the darkest of valleys. Even when faced with death, we don’t need to
5You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.
God honors and blesses
us right in front of our enemies! He shows off by abundantly blessing us before
the very ones who want to see us fall! We don’t have to worry about what others
say or think about us because we know that God has our backs and that serving
Him is never for nothing.
6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life;
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
He will never fail us,
and He’ll make sure that we WIN and come out on top. After all, “If God is for
us, who can ever be against us?” (Romans 8:31). We can be sure that God’s
goodness and mercy will follow us every single day when we allow Him to
shepherd us. With God’s love and
goodness overtaking us, we can dwell in His presence every day until we finally
spend eternity with Him.
