Just encouragement

I was led to this message for everyone this evening. We create much of our own unhappiness we create much of our own frustration by constantly resisting and fighting what’s going on in our lives. We don’t understand why our prayers aren’t being answered; why things aren’t changing sooner we end up with all this unrest and uneasiness on the inside. But I want challenge you tonight to learn to relax and to just accept where you are it may not be a great place we all have things we want to see change, things we want to see happen sooner, but if we really believe God is in control, if we really believe he is directing our steps then each one of us is exactly where we’re suppose to be and we shouldn’t be resisting it all the time we shouldn’t be fighting and struggling with it turn it all over to God.

Our attitude should be God I’m trusting you I know that you’re in control of my life and I may not understand everything that’s happening but, God I believe you have my best interest at heart so I’m not going to go around resisting and struggling, I’m going to relax and start enjoying my life, that will take all the pressure off of you.

The Bible says “to be still and know that I am God”, you need to get at peace of where you are right now. Things may not be perfect you may have some areas you need to improve in, but as long as we’re living upset, worried stressed out we’re just tying the hands of almighty God.

If you can just get to a place of peace then God can fight your battles for you, then He can turn those situations around. The scriptures says “those who have believed enter into the rest of God”, being in God’s rest means that you have a problem but you’re trusting God to take care of it. It means that you have a situation that you don’t understand but you’re not constantly trying to figure it out. It means you have a dream in your heart, but you’re not in a hurry you’re not frustrated because it hasn’t come to pass yet. In other words when you’re really in God’s rest you know that God has you in the palm of his hand and no matter where you are you accept it as the place God wants you to be right now.

I’m not saying God wants you to stay there but if you’re really trusting Him if you really believe He’s in control then wherever you are either good or bad is exactly where you’re suppose to be. We have to understand that God has promised He will use whatever comes into our lives for our good he’ll use that difficult to do a work in you. It may not be good but if you keep the right attitude he’ll use it for your good. Just remember where you are today is exactly where God’s want you to be learn to embrace the place that you are that will take all the pressure off of you.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!

    I am right in the middle of a faith crisis at the moment- having to question my 20 yrs old faith in HIM – the reason is because I am not where I wanted to be. And I could never get my head around why HE didn’t let me go to the place of my dreams – the place where I thought all HIS promises to me would come true. I really felt HE has left me in limbo. I even questioned HIS existence. I rebelled and took to some sinful pleasures. I just stumbled on this page this morning and your write up was like a prophetic message from God. I have decided to believe that HE has my best interest at heart (like you have written in your article). I request your earnest prayers for me.

      Oh my friend, you know I have felt that way lately myself… I am in limbo myself… not knowing what I am doing wrong, but I have to remember that God is my Father and He will lead me where He wants me and what is best for me… He knows better than I do what is my purpose for him in this world… trusting and pressing in is my answer today…. please feel free to find me on Facebook…Frances Godwin Worley and I will be glad to pray for you sweetie…. count on it!
