Pray More, Worry Less

Just a few weeks ago the Lord lifted a HUGE burden off of me that I had been carrying for months. I was struggling to pay something that I should not have been solely responsible for with interest rates that have been made illegal in some states. Then there was the emotional punching my mind was taking for even getting in over my head to begin with. So many lessons learned, but the most important was the simplest of all… PRAY. Pray when I’m upset, pray when I’m in need, pray when I’m troubled, pray when I’m in trouble… just pray. Seeking my Father would have adverted the whole problem from ever happening. Coming to my Father afterwards would have given me His wisdom on how to proceed and prevented so much worry. Too often I try to take everything on myself, carry it all on my shoulders. God is saying, I don’t have to do everything alone, even when I’ve messed up. That is sometimes hard for me to comprehend, but I’m getting there. I have the Holy Spirit to guide me daily, all I have to do is seek Him. Life can be hard, but I don’t have to do it alone and neither do you! It’s time to pray more and worry less. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

Nourishment for Your Soul and Mind: February 23, 2020

Do you think you have gone too far for the grace of God to touch you? Rahab, the harlot, is in the lineage of Jesus Christ. Let that sink in for a minute. He doesn’t discriminate against who He uses for His Kingdom. In fact, He often uses the most unexpected of people. He can qualify who man sees as unqualified, believe that! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“And Joshua the son of Nun sent out of Shittim two men to spy secretly, saying, Go view the land, even Jericho. And they went, and came into an harlot’s house, named Rahab, and lodged there.” Joshua 2:1

No Parking, Negative Thoughts Drive On By

The greatest place the devil attacks starts right in our head. It’s that little thought that we dwell on that turns into a huge issue, all right in our mind. That thought leads to another, which leads to another. Before we know it that small problem has become insurmountable, all in our heads. This is why the renewing of our mind is so important. We wash away those doubts the enemy tries to plant when when equip ourselves with the Word and remind ourselves of His power. When we are operating in our Father’s will the devil can throw his darts but we have our armor on for the battle. Renewing our mind is a daily task. The devil will throw his thoughts at me, but I know the thoughts the Lord has toward me are good so anything negative I need to command to leave, those thoughts aren’t welcome. No, I will concentrate on whatsoever is good… renew your mind daily and don’t give the devil any space to park in your thoughts! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:2

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things [are] honest, whatsoever things [are] just, whatsoever things [are] pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report; if [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things.” Philippians 4:8

I prayed for this morning’s Scripture picture and almost went by this verse, but the Lord brought me back to it. Just Tuesday I posted Deuteronomy 31:6, very similar to it (“Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”). But I felt it deep in my spirit. As I compared the two, I noticed in today’s verse He says, “Have not I commanded thee?” How interesting I thought. What are you facing today? Hold on to this verse and remember just as He was with Joshua “withersoever thou goest” He is is with you too! It doesn’t say be discouraged, it says “be of a good courage…” God’s got this my friends! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.” Joshua 1:9

Keep Pressing

Another old, but good one. The devil attacks our minds. He attacks those areas he knows will cause frustration and tries to make us feel defeated. He is a liar! Stay focused and keep pressing. God is listening and that is all that really matters. He’s a mountain mover and live changer. Silly devil, God sees us and we will not be moved! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.” 1 Peter 5:8-9

The Lord was their dwelling place in the days of Moses and He is still our dwelling place today. All you have to do is seek Him! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“1 [[A Prayer of Moses the man of God.]] Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations. 2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou [art] God.” Psalms 90:1-2
