I found tears coming to my eyes as I sat and pondered this verse. The part that stuck in my spirit the most was to rest in the Lord while we wait patiently for Him to move on our behalf or in a situation. It’s in that waiting that our faith grows, I know this. But that resting there, that is trusting Him completely with no fear, no worry. Your faith solidifies as you rest in Him and trust Him to work whatever it is out in your favor. It doesn’t matter what wicked plan the enemy has against you or who he is attempting to use it to bring it to pass, it can’t prosper. Don’t allow the enemy to keep you up at night, rest in the Lord. Don’t allow the enemy to trouble your thoughts, rest in the Lord. Rest my child while you wait patiently. That rest is essential in the process and needed for the patience to wait, one goes with the other to solidify your faith as it grows stronger. Don’t allow the enemy to steal your rest, send him on his way knowing God has you and whatever your patiently awaiting. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.”~ Psalm 37:7

When we are walking with the Lord our desires start to come in line with His desires and He loves to gives us the desires of our heart. He is a good, good Father and He wants to see us happy. He takes joy over us, but we must walk with Him and make certain our desires align with His. There is no need He won’t meet for us, but He will give us beyond our needs when our desires are aligned correctly. Blessings will overflow! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.” ~ Psalm 37:4

Today’s passage is so very powerful. In life you will run across people who will wish harm on you, some will even plot against you. There battle isn’t with you, it’s with the spirit that lives within you. Pray against the spirit in them and pray for them, but let it go. I recently had (and still have) the most evil person plotting against me and the people she used to try to accomplish her evil mission would absolutely blow your mind. God started to reveal her sinister plan to me and it the depth of the evil became heartbreaking. This plan can’t prosper because I’m a child of the most high God, His anointed with a purpose for His Kingdom. Her plan was revealed for me to pray for and it will not prosper. When you encounter such evil coming against you, don’t try to do to them in kind, give it to your God to fight on your behalf and pray for His mercy on their behalf. Child of God, nothing coming against you shall prosper! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“1 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. 2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.” ~ Psalm 37:1-2

Those morning talks with God, even at 3:30 in the morning, He listens! When you feel like you are completely last with so much on your mind and no words and only tears streaming down your face, He hears your heart, and collects every single one. He brought me to today’s passage and reminded my heart He’s in the very midst of me and I’m not alone. The winds may blow and the rains may pour, but I shall not be moved. These tears are cleansing, these winds are uprooting what needs to be blown away, and these rains are purging the ground for the growth that is for my good. What the devil means for my destruction the Lord is using to strengthen me in Him. He reminded me earlier that the enemy cannot destroy what God has ordained. There will be a refreshing after the storm and an unprecedented growth as I’ve never seen before. Glory hallelujah, I prophecy my promise! All that my Father as foretold will come to pass because it is settled in the name of Jesus! God is in the midst of me, I shall not be moved. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.” ~ Psalm 46:5

Real conversations with God are important. I had an extremely busy and stressful week and in prayer this morning I shared with the Lord I felt my countenance had fallen and inquired as to why. He said lean into Me daughter. You do not do this enough and this is why your countenance falls. I had allowed the busyness and stress to distract me from the One who would help me through it and that is really the devils plan isn’t it? In His lovingly stern way, He reminded me did’t I tell you your shoulders were not meant to carry it all… why are you cast down oh daughter? Trust in Me and all else will follow… My Father reminded me the enemy gets in my head when I need to listen to Him in my heart. Saints, the Holy Spirit of the living God dwells within us and His Word is true! What voice are you listening to today? Has your countenance fallen a bit? Why are you cast down? The hope of your countenance, the very health of your countenance rest in God! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and [why] art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him [for] the help of his countenance. 11 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, [who is] the health of my countenance, and my God.” ~ Psalms 42:5;11

I love this verse. I long to to know God more every day and glean from His wisdom. My soul thirst to know Him deeper as each day passes. Those morning conversations where He responds to my prayers are the most precious time of day. Our Father doesn’t want one sided prayers, He longs to have an intimidate relationship with each of us. Once you have experienced it, you will only want that closeness to grow stronger. Our Father will reveal His heart and secrets to those who earnestly seek Him. Take a little time to do this each day and I promise you won’t regret it. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

The Lord gave me this verse yesterday morning after I had prayed. I had used it in May so I wasn’t sure about using it again, but Hr confirmed it this morning in prayer so here we are. I’ve struggled this week. I have bronchitis again so I’m on stronger steroids, antibiotics, and cough medicine. At the same time, I have some very stressful situations going on. I think I’ve cried every day. Yesterday the Lord told me I needed to spend more time in His presence. He said dwelling in His presence lifts the weight of your cares away. He reminded me I tend to carry weight that isn’t mine to carry. I do it in almost every area of my life. He reminded me I’m to cast my burdens at His feet and LEAVE them there, not pick them back up to carry them on my shoulders later. He said the burdens were too great for me to bear and that I wasn’t meant to bear them all. Then He reminded me of Nehemiah 8:10, He said My joy is your strength. My joy is your strength daughter. That is important for you to understand because I’m bringing you through. Friends, the joy of the Lord IS your strength. I don’t know what your going through, but I do know who is bringing you through it and His joy is your strength! He wants you to know that tonight and to be refreshed in His joy and receive strength from it! Praise Him ye people with your hands up towards the heaven, your joy and strength cometh from the Lord! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” ~ Nehemiah 8:10

Did you know God catches every tear we cry. His Word says He knows our wandering, that includes our every sorrow. He collects our every tear in a bottle and records their reason in a book. Can you imagine? I don’t know about you, but I have shed a LOT of tears and to know my Father cares enough to collect them all is amazing. I think we all go through times when we feel alone and unwanted, but Jesus died on the cross for me and you. You never have to feel alone again. Here we have God collecting our tears and writing them in a book. There is so much love in that. Brothers and sisters, the next time the enemy pushes you to tears just remember who is catching them. Take heart, it is all going to be okay. God is working in realms you can’t see and He hasn’t forgotten you. Keep trusting, keeps praying, and keep pressing. Breakthrough is on the way. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

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

God’s love doesn’t disappoint. I have meditated on today’s verse for a couple of days. Hope doesn’t make shame because of the love of God poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit. It doesn’t matter what others think of that hope as long as our faith is rooted in Christ. When He has showed us something we can stand firm believing it will come to past regardless of the whispers to the contrary. “Hope maketh not ashamed” that just resonated deep in my spirit and made my heart smile. God has showed me somethings that others don’t see and that is okay. He is working in realms they don’t see and moving pieces into place in His time. All the time, He is pouring out His love into the hearts of the people by the Holy Ghost along way of those who are a part of His plan. God’s got this! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.” ~ Romans 5:5

Whew. I had a day. I had read this early, but then my day got out of control and I read it this evening I sat in awe. “Tribulation worketh patience.” Tribulation is “a cause of great trouble or suffering.” This worketh patience and experience… and hope. We know our hope is in God who our faith resides in. My patience was worked today, but glory be to God I am growing from it. I will glory in those tribulations as the working of my patience deepens my faith and my hope in my Father is made greater. All things come together for His glory as He molds my heart deeper in trusting Him. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“3 And not only [so], but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; 4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope:” ~ Romans 5:3-4
