Nourishment for Your Soul and Mind: May 24, 2020

Here we see Elijah cry out to God for the same widow’s son from yesterday. With complete faith it He “cried unto the Lord, and said, O Lord my God, I pray thee, let this child’s soul come into him again. And the Lord heard the voice of Elijah; and the soul of the child came into him again, and he revived.” Lord, forgive me for any unbelief and give me that kind of faith! In Jesus name Amen!! 💛 ~

“21 And he stretched himself upon the child three times, and cried unto the LORD, and said, O LORD my God, I pray thee, let this child’s soul come into him again. 22 And the LORD heard the voice of Elijah; and the soul of the child came into him again, and he revived.” ~ 1 Kings 17:21-22

Going back into my archives for tonight’s pic to refresh my own spirit. The devil isn’t original. No, he picks a familiar area of weakness and attacks in it and then moves to an other and repeats the cycle. I am retaining fluid right now so when I looked in the mirror today I just wanted to cry. On top of feeling completely miserable I look like I’m pregnant and all I’m carrying is water. I felt defeated. Another headache, I couldn’t focus to read for the name of God. Poppa I’m just a mess I cried as looked through old pictures for something to blog. I stopped on the one you see tonight. I read the words again. I am so much more than the swollen reflection I see staring back at me. I am a blessed daughter of the King. He sees me as so much more than I often see myself. The devil doesn’t want us to see who we are in Christ because of the impact we will have for God’s Kingdom. He wants us bound and discouraged so that we aren’t shining God’s light to others. Not to tonight devil, not tonight. There’s just more of me to shine right now and a greater testimony on the other side once this water comes off. It’s all in how you look at it, so when you look in the mirror look through it with God’s eyes and you will see a whole different person looking back at you. 💛 ~ Chelle, 💕#f8ithgal

The Lord is so faithful. In the verses before this one, the widow tells the man of God she was getting ready to dress the last she had to make for her and her son to eat and die (verse 11-12). There was no more. He tells her to make it for him and then themselves and the barrel will not waste and the cruise of oil will not fail until the Lord sends rain again (verse 13-14). Verse 16 shows that coming to pass. The widow was obedient to what God had instructed through His servant and He provided a way when it looked like there was no way!

As I read this story this morning, I kept hearing the word “obedience.” He is still that same God today that saved her widow and son so many years ago. Today we actually have a direct line of communication to Him through the blood of His Son Jesus Christ. I do not know your situation or what you are lacking, but I do know it is not too great for God to provide. Are you listening and acting with an obedient heart? I think that is key to someone crying out to Him today. Open up to your Father, He longs to hear from you today. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“And] the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Elijah.” ~ 1 Kings 17:16

Keep Shining

The enemy is seeking to destroy the greatness that lies within you. You are going to come across people that clash with your spirit. There’s nothing wrong with you, they are clashing with the light within you. Pray for discernment and renew your mind daily. Don’t allow the enemy to to discourage you. Don’t allow anyone to dull your shine. Ephesians 6:12 “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

As I read this verse, what came to mind was every thing done in secret comes to light. Press on. Don’t worry about those that say things that are untrue, God sees it all. That secret thing, be it good or bad, will handled by God. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this [is] the whole [duty] of man. 14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether [it be] good, or whether [it be] evil.” ~ Ecclesiastes 12: 13-14

Names of God: Elohenu Olam

Elohenu Olam is Everlasting God. It is often hard for our earthly minds to grasp a God that has no beginning and no end. I have deep rooted abandonment issues. I struggle with believing anyone comes into my life to stay, but there is one who will never leave. Psalm 48:14 says, “For this God [is] our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide [even] unto death.” Elohenu Olam wipes all of that fear of being abandoned away. He is our Everlasting God. He’s not going anywhere. I fall, He says get back up daughter. I can’t fall too far for His hand to reach. I try to run, He says come back home daughter. I can’t outrun Him. His love for me never fails it’s everlasting. His grace and mercy never run dry. That deserves a praise shout ! He is our God forever. No matter who leaves me, my God never will. No matter who fails me, my God never will. Elohenu Olam, He is our Everlasting God. You just have to give Him praise for that! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

Praying brothers and sisters are so important. I can’t even tell you the value of having my sisters in Christ there for me to pull me up when I fell. There were times when they truly prayed me through. Priceless! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

‘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 4:9-10
