30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 26

For day 26, I am thankful for a friendship that has lasted longer than I can even remember. She used to come to my grandma’s every Christmas Eve with her family while we were growing up. So many memories when we were younger, precious memories indeed. I am blessed and thankful to have a friendship that has lasted for so long. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so doth the sweetness of a man’s friend by hearty counsel.” ~ Proverbs 27:9

I thought on this verse for a long while. Some people know what wrong is, they know the evil yet the run right to it. Poppa, I just don’t understand. Others perceive that evil and stay as far away from it as they can. For the lost, our spirits are different, I get that. But what about our brothers and sisters in Christ, do they not perceive the evil as well? They are blinded by the enemy. That grieved my heart so much. We have people who can quote the word of God, sit in church, and still walk toward that evil that entices them. Some literally run towards it with no hesitation. The devil’s hold, his lure is so tight, so enticing. God help us. If it grieves my heart, can you imagine how it grieves the very heart of our Father? Correction then comes, but after coming so many times there will be a hardening of the heart and if they don’t respond, their sin will prevent them from hearing His voice. I never want to be in a place where God wants to drastically get my attention. It happened when I found myself alone in CO and I never want to be at that point again. Let us pray for each other and the state of our country. God is trying to get our attention in so many ways and too many are not listening. Pray for blinders to be removed and ears to be unstopped. This is a battleground and it’s time to storm heaven with our prayers. It’s also time to start preaching Holiness is still right and stop sugar coating the gospel and diluting to appease the masses. Jesus is coming back soon. It’s time to stop willingly running towards evil and guard our minds and hearts from it. 🔥 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished.” ~ Proverbs 27:12

30 Days of Thankfulness: Days 23, 24, & 25

I got a little behind on my thankfulness post this week with work and the holiday, but I never stopped being thankful or thinking about what to post each day. For day 23, I am thankful for my precious nieces and nephews. Each of them fill my heart with so much joy and I am truly blessed to be able to call myself their Aunt. Watching them grow before my eyes is amazing and rewarding. I am thankful to be their Aunt Chelle Chelle. My only regret is not living closer to Keg in Florida.

For day 24, I am thankful for my sister-in-laws. I never had sisters growing up, but God has blessed me with two as an adult and I am grateful. I am thankful and I know if I ever need them they are there.

For today, on day 25, I am thankful for a couple the Lord blessed in our lives unexpectedly. Rachel and KC, never hesitate when we call and always have a listening ear. It’s nice to have someone to have over for dinners and to go out with. I am thankful to have them in our lives. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children.” ~ Isaiah 54:13

“She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.” ~ Proverbs 3:15

9 Two [are] better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. 10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him [that is] alone when he falleth; for [he hath] not another to help him up.” ~ Ecclesiastes 4:9-19

This morning in my prayer time I heard what God has ordained He will sustain. Sustain is to strengthen or support physically or mentally. His Word tells us that when He starts a work in us, He sees it to completion. We often want this done now, we want instant results in the microwave world we live in, but the Scripture says He will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ. We are a continual work in progress. He is constantly growing us and perfecting us in that which He has called us to do. For those that have not seen their calling manifest, but have heard it prophesied or you are waiting for a loved one to walk into their promise, I love Isaiah 14:27. If the Lord of host has purposed it, if He Himself has spoken it, if He has set the plan into motion; who can turn it back, who can change it? Whatever it is God has placed in you or the one you love, keep pressing into Him and towards that thing. Keep decreeing and declaring these Scriptures over your life and the lives of those you love. God is going to bring it to pass. He is not a God that lies and He has written it in His Word. Start speaking it. Faith in action. 🔥 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“For the LORD of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul [it]? and his hand [is] stretched out, and who shall turn it back?” Isaiah 14:27

“Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform [it] until the day of Jesus Christ:” ~ Philippians 1:6

I was praying this morning and the Holy Ghost brought today’s passage to my memory. “When the enemy comes in like a flood [he’s rushing in on you, overwhelming you, and you can’t even get your breath], the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him [the wind driven by the very breath of God with overwhelm the enemy and drive him back]. We aren’t promised there won’t be battles, in fact we are told to put on our armor and prepare for them. But we are also given these golden scriptures that promise us our fight is not alone and that when it is too intense God Himself shall lift up a standard against the enemy. When you walk with the Lord closely, the battles will surely follow. The enemy fears what the Lord is instilling in you, but Jesus has already won and these battles are just to try to weigh you down and wear you out. Warrior son and daughter, you are more than a conqueror through Christ. If you’ve fallen, get back up. If your weary, rest. But don’t you even think about quitting, the battle isn’t yours; it belongs to our Father and He will sustain you through it. Be encouraged today. If the enemy is fighting you, it’s because you have something special within you and you’ve been chose for such a time as this. We’ve got Kingdom work to do. Get back up and fight!!! 🔥 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.” ~ Isaiah 59:19

I’m going through a really treacherous storm right now. I sat this morning with tears streaming down my cheeks as I tried to call out to my Father to soothe my aching heart. I don’t have this Poppa, I cried. He said you’re right, you don’t have this, I do. He told me not to take my eyes off of Him through this storm and reminded me of Peter walking on the water. He sank when he saw boisterous winds and took his focus off of the Lord. Eyes straight forward. He said not to the left or right, nor behind you, eyes straight forward. The enemy can’t pluck us out of the safety of God’s hand, so he’ll create boisterous waves, loud thunder, and lightning in attempt to create fear. He’ll try to reopen soul wounds and leave your heart in pieces and you grasping for air as the pain hurts to your very core. The devil is a liar, in fact the father of lies. The Holy Ghost will apply His healing balm to the wounds of your heart as God collects every tear you cry. Those tears are a battle cry, a sound of war your Father hears and He is already acting on your behalf in the spiritual realm. You can’t mess with a child of God or anything that is theirs and prosper. God says rest in me daughter, I’ve heard your cry, I have heard your heart. It is all in His hands. 🔥 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“28 Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses. 29 He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still. 30 Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.” ~ Psalm 107:28-30

30 Days of Thankfulness: Days 21 & 22

For day 21, I am thankful that God meets my every need. So often I don’t know how we are going to do and in my own hands we couldn’t, but He always provides a way. It is to His glory and I give Him all the praise! For day 22, I am thankful He catches every tear I cry. He knoweth my wanderings. He knowest the pains my hearts travails. When the words can’t come out and my heart speaks through the tears running down my cheeks, He knows and He catches every single one. I am thankful that He loves me so much that He catches my tears! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” ~Philippians 4:19

“Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?” ~ Psalm 56:8

The devil comes to rob us of our peace. He can’t take my soul. He can’t take who God has ordained me to become so he sets out to steal my peace and boy has he been raging a battle against mine. The battle was so intense last night that all I could do was look up to my Father with tears streaming down my cheeks and call on His name. It was enough. He led me to today’s passage. The key is, “…whose mind is stayed on thee.” For Him to keep me in perfect peace through this storm, I have to take my mind off the storm and fix it on the Lord. When I focus on the storm, the waves overwhelm me and I start to take on water and sink. When I focus on the Lord Jehovah, He is my strength that pulls me from the waters and sits me in the very palm of His hand. Because the enemy bombards the mind continually, I have to continually fix my eyes on my Father so that the water from the storm doesn’t overtake me. Are you overwhelmed? I get it! What are you fixing your mind on? Fix your eyes on God and watch the atmosphere switch. The enemy looses ground when he can’t steal your peace! 🔥 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“3 Thou wilt keep [him] in perfect peace, [whose] mind [is] stayed [on thee]: because he trusteth in thee. 4 Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH [is] everlasting strength: 5 For he bringeth down them that dwell on high; the lofty city, he layeth it low; he layeth it low, [even] to the ground; he bringeth it [even] to the dust.” ~ Isaiah 26:3-5

Coming home several days ago I saw an “I” in the sky and it looked like it had a period after it and it was underlined. It reminded me of I Am as soon as I saw it. He is I Am that I Am. The God that is able, the God that is more than enough. My heart needed that today and perhaps someone else did too. There is nothing too hard for Him. Don’t allow the enemy or any of the people he is controlling to convince you differently. He’s got this, no matter what “this” looks like and he’s got you! 🔥 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.” ~ Exodus 3:14

30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 20

Today, I am so thankful God has not given up on me! He has been all so patent, practically beating me over the head when I ask Him for confirmation on things. He listens to me cry and collects my tears in a bottle and that is a LOT of tears. He imparts His wisdom into me and reassures me I am His and He will never leave me. When I miss the mark, He’s ready to forgive not yell, condemn , or run. I’m just so thankful God doesn’t give up one me. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” ~ Hebrews 13:5
