Devotional 5/19

Do all things without grumbling or questioning; Philippians 2:14

Until our attitude can glorify God, while we are going through a hard time we will not be delivered.

Joyce Meyer

What do you do when your life does not reflect the promises of God over your life? Remember God’s plans for us, are to prosper us and give us a hope and a future: God is for us, not against us. God has a plan and He is working on something behind the scenes! When we pray, He hears us!

I know what it’s like to wait on God, and wonder if it’s worth it, and what it’s like to believe God’s word despite your feelings. I know what it’s like to walk by faith, while reality screams in your face- calling you a fool. I know what it’s like to worship, praise, read the word, congregate and serve God: and still be in a funk. I also know what it’s like to fail God, be desperate, feel hopeless and seek refuge in places other than God. I know what it’s like to wonder if you are paying for some sort of disobedience. I know what it is to wonder if God is even listening to my prayers or does God still love me?

God has not forgotten you. It is up to us to renew our minds, and to declare what we believe. David said, I believed and therefore I spoke.

  • If you are grumpy, then do some self reflecting and search what things you’ve been believing.
  • If you are hopeless, what have you been thinking about?

I wish I could have a better response to life, but this is it. You and the Spirit of God are a majority: He’s our teacher, our counselor and the one working in us.

  • Grab a book and study it.
  • Look for scriptures according to your need/circumstance and meditate on them.
  • Join a bible study group or START a bible study group!

We have full access to God! We can boldly approach the throne of God and find help in our time of need. He will give us grace, comfort, strategy, favor, wisdom, direction, and much more.

Let’s pray:

Lord Jesus, mighty counselor! Thank you lord for renewed hope. Thank you for restoring our hearts. May God’s grace strengthen. You as you renew your mind, and shift your perspectives. In Jesus name, Amen.
