Nourishment for Your Soul and Mind: April 2, 2020

This can be a scary time for our world. I’m hearing stories of God’s children being healed from this virus and heartbreaking stories of them being called home. It’s heartbreaking for the family, but for a child of God they are waking in the other side in His presence. He truly is our help and what will sustain us during these trying days. Meditate on the Word and His promises. Draw closer to our Father in these uncertain days and His hand will indeed uphold us through them. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“5 My soul shall be satisfied as [with] marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise [thee] with joyful lips: 6 When I remember thee upon my bed, [and] meditate on thee in the [night] watches. 7 Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice. 8 My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.” ~ Psalms 63:5-8

Names of God

What is in a name? We know there is power in the name of Jesus! Throughout the Bible we see various names of God used, each has a specific meaning. I’ve shared many of those names before and it is on my heart to share them again. God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow so that power and meaning behind each name still holds true today. He is still our Jehoval Jirah, our Provider and El Shaddi, our Almighty God. I look forward to sharing these names and more with you again in the days ahead. As we are all shut in, I just felt this was a great way to get closer to God and experience the power of His name. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

Seek Him early my friends, there is no better way to start your day. It is the hand of God that will sustain us through these days. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“1 [[A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.]] O God, thou [art] my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; 2 To see thy power and thy glory, so [as] I have seen thee in the sanctuary.” ~ Psalms 63:1-2

Wisdom From Proverbs: Chapter 31

Our journey comes to an end with the Proverbs 31 woman, a woman all women of God seek to be like. “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.” Verse 10 I’ve had a rough couple of days and the devil has really been beating me down. It seemed nothing I could do was good enough and that somehow turned into I’m not good enough in my mind. Today it all seemed to be just me like a mountain weighing on me, so much to do and not enough hours in the day to do it. Then I read verse 10 and it just spoke to my heart. Daughter, know your worth. I’m worth more than rubies, you are worth more than rubies! Our price is far above rubies y’all. *** smiles ***

I push myself really hard and I’m disappointed in myself when I don’t meet my own expectations or I don’t know something I “think” I should. I am disappointed in myself when I don’t meet others expectations, no matter how unrealistic they are. The devil uses all of that to attack my self worth. Silly devil, I am still daughter to THE King. I still encompass the things that make a Proverbs 31 woman, I needed this reminder today! I pray you have gleaned wisdom from the Holy Spirit as you took this 31 day journey and read each chapter yourself. Be sure you take it again throughout the year, I promise the Lord will continue to bless you and drop nuggets of wisdom on you each time you do. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“The words of king Lemuel, the prophecy that his mother taught him. 2 What, my son? and what, the son of my womb? and what, the son of my vows? 3 Give not thy strength unto women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings. 4 [It is] not for kings, O Lemuel, [it is] not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink: 5 Lest they drink, and forget the law, and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted. 6 Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts. 7 Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more. 8 Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction. 9 Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy. 10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price [is] far above rubies. 11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. 12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. 13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. 14 She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar. 15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens. 16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard. 17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms. 18 She perceiveth that her merchandise [is] good: her candle goeth not out by night. 19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff. 20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. 21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household [are] clothed with scarlet. 22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing [is] silk and purple. 23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. 24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth [it]; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant. 25 Strength and honour [are] her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. 26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue [is] the law of kindness. 27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. 28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband [also], and he praiseth her. 29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. 30 Favour [is] deceitful, and beauty [is] vain: [but] a woman [that] feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. 31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.” Proverbs 31:1-31

In this Psalms David, “cried unto the Lord… and He heard me out of His holy hill…” I don’t don’t what your going through but the Lord does, cry out to Him. David goes on to say, “I laid down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.” Praise the Lord! He WILL sustain you, that made me shout with praise this morning! Draw unto God my friends. He is right there with you and loves it when you call on His name. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“3 But thou, O LORD, [art] a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head. 4 I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah. 5 I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.” Psalmist 3:3-5

Wisdom From Proverbs: Chapter 30

I am so thankful for the purity of the Word of God and that He is our shield. People that don’t walk with God can’t truly understand the gifts that come from Him. He will give you discernment that allows you to see when motives may not be as pure as they are portrayed. The devil knows God’s Word better than most Christians. He tried to use it on the Mount with Jesus, twisting it ever so subtlety. When you seek God, He will give you the wisdom and discernment to thwart those attacks. God is not just our physical shield, He’s our mental, spiritual, and emotional shield as well. Thank You Poppa for your spirit of discernment that rest over me. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“1 The words of Agur the son of Jakeh, [even] the prophecy: the man spake unto Ithiel, even unto Ithiel and Ucal, 2 Surely I [am] more brutish than [any] man, and have not the understanding of a man. 3 I neither learned wisdom, nor have the knowledge of the holy. 4 Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what [is] his name, and what [is] his son’s name, if thou canst tell? 5 Every word of God [is] pure: he [is] a shield unto them that put their trust in him. 6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar. 7 Two [things] have I required of thee; deny me [them] not before I die: 8 Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: 9 Lest I be full, and deny [thee], and say, Who [is] the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God [in vain]. 10 Accuse not a servant unto his master, lest he curse thee, and thou be found guilty. 11 [There is] a generation [that] curseth their father, and doth not bless their mother. 12 [There is] a generation [that are] pure in their own eyes, and [yet] is not washed from their filthiness. 13 [There is] a generation, O how lofty are their eyes! and their eyelids are lifted up. 14 [There is] a generation, whose teeth [are as] swords, and their jaw teeth [as] knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from [among] men. 15 The horseleach hath two daughters, [crying], Give, give. There are three [things that] are never satisfied, [yea], four [things] say not, [It is] enough: 16 The grave; and the barren womb; the earth [that] is not filled with water; and the fire [that] saith not, [It is] enough. 17 The eye [that] mocketh at [his] father, and despiseth to obey [his] mother, the ravens of the valley shall pick it out, and the young eagles shall eat it. 18 There be three [things which] are too wonderful for me, yea, four which I know not: 19 The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent upon a rock; the way of a ship in the midst of the sea; and the way of a man with a maid. 20 Such [is] the way of an adulterous woman; she eateth, and wipeth her mouth, and saith, I have done no wickedness. 21 For three [things] the earth is disquieted, and for four [which] it cannot bear: 22 For a servant when he reigneth; and a fool when he is filled with meat; 23 For an odious [woman] when she is married; and an handmaid that is heir to her mistress. 24 There be four [things which are] little upon the earth, but they [are] exceeding wise: 25 The ants [are] a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer; 26 The conies [are but] a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks; 27 The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands; 28 The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings’ palaces. 29 There be three [things] which go well, yea, four are comely in going: 30 A lion [which is] strongest among beasts, and turneth not away for any; 31 A greyhound; an he goat also; and a king, against whom [there is] no rising up. 32 If thou hast done foolishly in lifting up thyself, or if thou hast thought evil, [lay] thine hand upon thy mouth. 33 Surely the churning of milk bringeth forth butter, and the wringing of the nose bringeth forth blood: so the forcing of wrath bringeth forth strife.” Proverbs 30:1-33

Thank You Jesus for Your cleansing blood that washes away all of our sins. Fallen? Get back up! The blood of Jesus blots out all of our iniquities, all you have to do is call on His name. Whew what an awesome God we serve. Don’t you know there is power in the blood of Jesus? That is in my spirit this morning, call on His name. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. 8 Make me to hear joy and gladness; [that] the bones [which] thou hast broken may rejoice. 9 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities. 10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.” ~ Psalms 51:7-10
