One year ago today, I started this website. Got a Happy Anniversary notification this morning from Word Press. One year, wow ~ As I reflect and I look back at the year, the lessons that I have wrote about, I look back and say, BUT GOD !
There have been deep valleys and high mountains in this last year. God is more real to me than he has ever been. Friends, he truly draws closer to us when we draw closer to him.
Right now, this very moment, this season that I am in is one of great testing. I have faltered, I have cried because the pain is so real and the attacks are fierce, BUT GOD, has been there every step of the way. He has protected me from physical danger. He is protecting me spiritually through mighty and fierce spiritual warriors that have rallied beside me in this battle that is before me. The Lord opened their spiritual eyes to this battle and they are surrounding me with encouraging words and prayer. It is like anointing oil being poured over my head.
This journey that I am on is one of redemption. I am also learning the more equipped and spiritually fit I get, the more opposition comes against me. It is confusing and it is painful, BUT GOD, is not the God of disorder but the God of peace. I must go back to the foundations that I believe in at times like this.
So, set before me is the question, do you really? Do you really believe what you say? Do you really, no matter what? So what is my answer to this real and powerful enemy that is attacking, My answer is this, JESUS !
I trust in the one and only Mighty God. He is my savior. Through his mercy, strength and love, I will be victorious. The Lord is my shepherd. I will rest in his arms. I have to submit to him in all my ways and rest in his arms.
God is with me. I am NOT alone. Lord, show me your ways. With all my heart and soul, I live to worship you and lead me to righteousness for your name sake.
Every day, I need you more. Everywhere I go, may I remind myself and constantly meditate on the fact that I am not alone. I Know that I KNOW that you are with me.
Lord, I am seeking you this morning. Thank you for your protective hand. Thank you for your blessings of spirit filled believers surrounding me and reaching out to me. Perfect timing that only can come from you my loving Father.
Guide me today and the days ahead. I worship you Lord. Your power and your glory are so real. Your holiness is so real. Your presence is before me. Lord, your mercy and wonders truly awakes my senses to a level I have never known. Whenever I call your name, you are there.
The name, “JESUS” has so much power. We grew up hearing about it. We sang songs in church about it as children. But, now I KNOW just how powerful the name really is and there is no other name but Jesus. The only name that saves. The redeeming name. The name that brings hope. The name that brings protection. The name that should create worship in each one of us. As my new favorite song from Christie Nockels says….. Let it be , Let it be Jesus, the FIRST name that I call. Now and forever more.
God is faithful. This Sovereign God of the universe truly deserves ALL praise by ALL people. May my voice ring loud ! He is all that I need ~
