Nourishment for Your Soul and Mind: May 8, 2021

Be still daughter. That is what I heard my Father whisper as my heart cried out to Him this morning. I go before you, why do you worry so? Ahhhh. I could not help but smile. My head is constantly worrying about every little thing and God already had those details worked out! Here I am thinking of backup plans and this and that and He’s already commissioned the angels to go before me. Silly girl, God’s got this and you! What are worrying about, trying to figure out that you too need to leave in your Father’s hands? Be still today and know God will be exalted above all and when He does, He has you! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

This verse just struck me when I read it. I looked it up in the concordance and it said “ruin; by implication consternation: – {astonishment} desolate ({-ion}) {waste} wonderful thing.” Ruin, desolate, and then it ended with wonderful thing. But God! That is the God we serve. Keep your eyes on Him my friends, He makes beautiful things out of desolation. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth.” ~ Psalm 46:8

Waiting on the Lord is sometimes the hardest part, but He promises to strengthen our heart during that wait. He doesn’t leave us during that time. In fact, when we draw close to Him we can find some of the most intimate times and conversations with our Father. Draw close to Him through whatever you are going through, He will strengthen you. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.” ~ Psalm 27:14

People will come up against us in life. Sometimes it will come from expected places, it’s those unexpected places that pierce like a sword and do the most damage to our heart. Our Father sees those attacks, in fact He saw the conversations and knew they were coming before the sword hit our heart. Toughen up daughter, I’ve got this. I’m weeding out your circle in some cases and in others I’m strengthening your faith. It may be a personal friendship or it could be work related but I hear the Lord saying toughen up child of God, I’ve got this. Lean into Him and trust His hand is at work today. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.” ~ Psalm 27:12

Things happen in life, but when you are a child of God you can trust and believe that they will work out for your good according to His purpose. It is as simple as that. The hardest part is getting past the present circumstance to wrap our mind around it and that comes through a daily renewing of your mind and fighting off the enemy as he attacks it. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

The Lord has had me in this very place of seeking His face so this verse just made my heart leap as I read it! I could hear myself saying, “Thy face, Lord, will I seek!” It is amazing how He brings us to places in the Word that mirror where we are in life! What an amazing and personal God we serve. I am so thankful He wants a relationship with me and He wants one with you too! Not a quick prayer when you need something or over dinner. He longs for deep conversations and one on one time that is life changing if only you will draw closer to Him for it. Take some time to talk to your Father today. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek.” ~ Psalm 27:8

I am so thankful that we have an on-time God! He sees the full picture. He sees and hears conversations we don’t. His timing is not delayed but perfect. When we are troubled we can lift our soul to Him to be renewed to carry on while He continues to work behind the scenes. He is perfect and He carries us knowing we are not, how awesome is that?! He loves us so much He gave His son for us, do you really think He will let the waters overtake you now? Oh child of God, you were made to swim in the deep. You are not drowning, your faith is being tested. Draw close to your Father, He’s got you through whatever you are going through and His timing is perfect. He will not fail you. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.“ ~ Psalm 25:1

What a mighty God we serve! Do you know this God I speak of? He longs to know you in the most real and intimate way. He has things He wants to share with you, but it takes more than a rushed prayer or coming to Him in a time of need. He wants two-way conversations, are you taking the time to listen for your Father’s voice? He has so much for you child of God if only you take the time to listen. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.“ ~ Psalm 22:22

God has been calling me to be bolder in my faith and bolder in the testimony of it. As He calls me into a deeper relationship with Him, He’s started giving me decrees and praises. I said Poppa, these people are going to think I have lost my mind! But I have been sharing it all with a boldness. Today I sat in the courthouse hallway praying and singing to God in intercession for the man I love after we had been given an offer we were not happy with. You could feel the presence of the Holy Spirit and in the end God’s favor was with us. To see Him working right before our eyes is just awesome and to see the fruit of faith in action is so rewarding. I give God the highest praise! People may think I’m crazy, but it is my radical faith that has brought me to where I am and I will express it with a boldness with all God gives me to proclaim! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.“ ~ Ephesians 3:12
