“And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?”
Matthew 14:31 KJV
How is it that we find ourselves in doubt of the GOD who said that He would never suffer (allow) the righteous to be moved, that He will supply all of our needs according to His riches in glory and that He would be with us even until the end of the World?!!!
“Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.”
Psalm 55:22 KJV
“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.”
Philippians 4:19-20 KJV
“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
Matthew 28:18-20 KJV
How is that we worry when we see the evil around us seemingly closing in?
“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.”
Matthew 24:4-8 KJV
How is that we look at things that for the moment while we’re going through them, appear to us like there’s no way we can get through them?!!!
“But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.”
Isaiah 43:1-2 KJV
“Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: but rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.”
1 Peter 4:12-13 KJV
How is it that when we know what others meant for our demise was actually purposed for our good.. we still allow their actions to overshadow the promises of GOD towards us?
“And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God? But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive. Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spake kindly unto them.”
Genesis 50:19-21 KJV
How is it that we read GOD’s Word as if it were some extensive story book authored by various fictional characters, instead of as a guide of professed instruction, a lamp for the path that GOD has commanded us to follow and a never changing source of joy, strength and moreover the building of our faith inspired and given to be written by chosen men, ordered by GOD?!!!
“And Moses came and told the people all the words of the LORD, and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice, and said, All the words which the LORD hath said will we do. And Moses wrote all the words of the LORD, and rose up early in the morning, and builded an altar under the hill, and twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel.”
Exodus 24:3-4 KJV
“And it came to pass in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, that this word came unto Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, Take thee a roll of a book, and write therein all the words that I have spoken unto thee against Israel, and against Judah, and against all the nations, from the day I spake unto thee, from the days of Josiah, even unto this day. It may be that the house of Judah will hear all the evil which I purpose to do unto them; that they may return every man from his evil way; that I may forgive their iniquity and their sin.”
Jeremiah 36:1-3 KJV
“We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.”
2 Peter 1:19-21 KJV
Oh, and let’s not forget the negative thoughts, actions and commentary that is received from others who despise your personal relationship with GOD and how He is using you, over that of His undeniable decree over your life?!!!
“being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:”
Philippians 1:6 KJV
Final Thought: Now I don’t know about you, but as I was writing this, the more I heard His Voice (read His Word), and the more I grew hungry for more!!! More strength, more encouragement, more joy, more power, more flex, more confidence, MORE FAITH!!! There is no way on GOD’s green Earth 🌏 that anything that we see, go through, encounter, walk into, allow Him to fight our way through and come out of that can overtake us when we ask Him for MORE FAITH!!! Oh, and when you do ask Him.. ask Him to increase your faith before the storm, in the middle of the trial and even the more after the smoke 💨 clears!!! WE WILL NOT BE SHAKEN, WE WILL NOT BE MOVED.. instead WE WILL TRUST IN THE GOD OF OUR SALVATION!!!🙏🏼🙌🏼✌🏼
