Happy New Year 2018!!!! I hope you had a wonderful and restful holiday season!!!
As I was reflecting on the year past, I recall posting this prayer in the beginning of 2017…God truly delivered and went beyond my expectations in 2017

deargod2017

 

My lack was turned into plenty, as God opened new doors and gave way to new opportunities…

2017 was the year of clarity for me as a person and where I stand in my relationship with God…as I surrendered more and more of my life to him, I had certainty because of the Faith I had in him…

When I say I went through it, I am not joking, oh boy was I put through the wringer…But God!!!

He turned every single one of those tests into testimonies…

He worked big miracles in my life and I truly believe HE IS THE GOD OF MIRACLES…

And of course there was a lot of growth and change in my life…

Because of the lessons learnt in 2017 I’m stepping boldly into 2018 with HOPE and FAITH in God’s promises for my life.

Without God, Hope is NOTHING but wishful thinking that our expectations and desires will come to pass…with God Hope is having confident assurance and trust in his promises for our lives.

Romans 8:24-25 (AMP)

24 For in this hope we were saved [by faith]. But hope [the object of] which is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he already sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait eagerly for it with patience and composure.

Hebrews 11:1 (AMP)

11 Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses].

I am confident and have HOPE and FAITH because, God is not a man that he should lie (Numbers 23 : 19) therefore I know, the word God has spoken unto my life shall not return void but will accomplish what God desires and achieve the purpose for which he sent it. (Isaiah 55 : 11)

Happy New Year once again, and I pray that God blesses your 2018 abundantly, beyond your expectations. That you may testify of the goodness of the Lord AMEN

He fights our battles (Day 11) – “What Is Love?” Challenge

his-love-endures-forever

It’s Day 11 of the “What Is Love?” Challenge, where for 29 days, I’m sharing bible verses on Love so we can gain a deeper understanding of the True meaning of Love according to God’s Divine plan.

On Day 10 we were reminded to be GRATEFUL for God’s steadfast love. Today’s verses are a continuation from Day 10 we continue to praise, worship and be grateful to God, for he fights our battles.

Psalm 136:14-26 English Standard Version (ESV)

14 and made Israel pass through the midst of it,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
15 but overthrew Pharaoh and his host in the Red Sea,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
16 to him who led his people through the wilderness,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;

17 to him who struck down great kings,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
18 and killed mighty kings,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
19 Sihon, king of the Amorites,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
20 and Og, king of Bashan,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
21 and gave their land as a heritage,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
22 a heritage to Israel his servant,
    for his steadfast love endures forever.

23 It is he who remembered us in our low estate,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
24 and rescued us from our foes,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
25 he who gives food to all flesh,
    for his steadfast love endures forever.

26 Give thanks to the God of heaven,
    for his steadfast love endures forever.

These verses remind us of the mighty things God did for the nation of Israel while they were slaves in Egypt…he saw their suffering and heard their cries and he kept his promise, to deliver them from the land of Egypt and lead them to the promise land.

While they were being chased by Pharaoh he parted the Red Sea for them and made a way…and then overthrew Pharaoh and his army…how REMARKABLE is that? not only that he continued to fight for them over and over again from many evil kings and rulers.

he fights our battles

We serve the same God today…not only does his LOVE for us never fail, he is our shield and armour, he is our protector, he is the ultimate provider, he fights our battles and all blessings come from him…

Every so often when we fight our biggest and baddest battles, we cry out to the Lord and ask for help, and sometimes we may not hear an answer immediately but just know he hears our cries…and he knows every detail of our lives…and he is working behind the scenes to provide the best solution for our problems.

How comforting is it to know that we have such a wonderful God on our side, that no matter what we go through, he is right there with us through it all, fighting for us on our behalf. We can go through life’s trials knowing that we have the best security system in place with him.

Everything we have or will ever be is all because of his MERCY, GRACE and LOVE.

Today, let’s pray and thank God for everything he has done for us, for all that he has provided for us, for all his blessings, for his protection, his Justice, for fighting our battles…let’s ask him to grant us the grace to put our faith on him, to be still and wait on him, to be thankful and to have grateful hearts, to be obedient to him for his is worthy of all the GLORY AND PRAISE. AMEN.

Stay Blessed,

XOXO
