And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. 1The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.
What an amazing experience it must have been for the millions of former slaves to see God’s power deliver them from their oppressors. But the best news is that, for the child of God today, His power is still ready to work in our lives.
Whether we’re struggling against an addiction, emotional turmoil or health issues, it’s important for the Christian to remember that God is on our side. No matter the chaos that surrounds you, remember that He’s the greatest warrior ever.
Stand firm upon His words of promise, believe, and watch Him do amazing things.
“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
Rest has been a key part of God’s plan. In Genesis, God rested. In Exodus, He told the Jewish people to observe the 7th day as Sabbath (rest). But His plan went still further as He unveiled a spiritual “rest” through the Holy Spirit that was incarnated in Jesus Christ.
Spirit-filled Christians don’t need to fear the terror, political confusion and religious noise that seems to get louder each day. We don’t need to fear the power of sin or worry about whether we’ll go to heaven or not when this life is over.
Our lives are in the hands of a perfect, omnipotent God and, no matter what each day brings, we are at rest, knowing that He is STILL in control.
I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope;
Psalm 130: 5 ESV
Waiting can seem to be so difficult at times, especially when life seems to be passing us by. Or when others get their blessings and we’re still on our knees.
But the truth is, patience is perfection. The “instant gratification” philosophy has no place in God’s Word. He molds our character by delaying, holding back until He’s finished infusing another layer of Himself into our lives.
Keep waiting. Keep believing. Keep loving God. He can never fail.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”
To call these words inspiring is like calling the Alps a bunch of pebbles. These are life-changing kernels of truth that, if accepted into the human heart, has the power to liberate captives and restore broken hearts.
There’s one catch: these words are only activated for those who are in Jesus Christ. Anyone can read the Bible, but it’s promises only work on conditions. Once those conditions are met anything—and I mean anything—is possible.
Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.
First off, thanks to all my followers and readers who made 2018 such a spectacular year. This year I released two full-length novels, Bride Tree and In the Shadow of Your Wings both of which are epic representations of God’s amazing love.
I also spoke at two Christian writer conferences and helped other authors develop their professional craft. But 2019 will be even better. I’m looking to do more for Christ in whatever way I can… while I can.
As we face an uncertain sociopolitical future, I encourage all to develop or deepen your walk with Christ as His return is imminent. If you’d like me to join you in prayer regarding any circumstance, don’t hesitate to reach out via my contact form.
Happy New Year and May God bless you.
