Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
We are not always good at waiting, it’s just our nature. We get impatient, frustrated, and start to doubt God’s will in our lives. But we need to be confident in God’s goodness. We need to wait on the Lord’s timing, hope in his mercy, and believe in his promises!
Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts. (GNT)
If you think your thoughts don’t matter you are very wrong. When you think about things or believe something whether it’s good or bad, it turns into things you do, if you do these things enough times it turns into a habit. Your habits determine your character and your character determines who you are in life and where you will spend eternity.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Prayer doesn’t have to be full of big, fancy words. Don’t be intimidated by long, loud, eloquent prayers. Pray from your heart, have a conversation with God, and pray knowing and believing that he hears you. If you don’t know how or what to pray, pray for God’s will to be done in your life. God will take it from there.
Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”
Every believer at one time or another has doubts about their purpose. As long as you still have some faith God will work with what you have. It’s not about your power or your strength, it’s about having faith in the power of Christ. When you feel doubt and fear creeping in ask God to help you overcome your unbelief and increase your faith.
The Lord our God said to us at Horeb, “You have stayed long enough at this mountain.”
The Israelites were stuck wandering the desert for 40 years because of their disobedience and unbelief in God. If you feel stuck and you’re wandering aimlessly without a purpose, it’s time for you to start putting your trust in God and start believing in his promises so you can get off the mountain and move forward into the promises God has for your life.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Without hope we feel helpless, alone, and powerless. But our God is the source of all hope. Hope for healing, hope for peace, hope for joy. All hope comes from knowing, believing, and trusting God and by his grace he has given us the gift of hope.
I am the Lord your God, who brought you up out of Egypt. Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.
God is the same yesterday, today, and forever and he will bless you according to your faith. If you want to receive your blessing you have to trust and believe that the Lord is able to fill your cup, and not just fill your cup but overflow it with blessings. Open wide and receive your blessing!
