On paper……


On paper I am not supposed to be where I am today. It doesn’t

make sense.

On paper, it tells of a totally different life than the one I am living now.

I am not supposed to be here.

But here I am and it wasn’t any of my doing!

 

So today I was thinking about all the bills that have to be paid,

and all the places I am yet to travel to, and all the other things that

require money and once again, on paper I won’t be able to do all

that I want to do. My salary is not going to make all that happen.

 

So on paper my life is comprised of paying bills and keeping my head

above water! But as look back at the good things that have happened to me

I see how my salary has never been enough. In fact, my salary had very

little say in the things that have happened to me and for me!

It was YAH all along! Everything good that has happened to me and I mean

everything is because of YAH’s grace and mercy on my life.

It all happened because He is good and because He loves me!

 

So it may seem like it’s bad on paper right now but that is not a true

reflection of my life. I serve a God who is great and mighty!

Let me share a few scriptures with you,

 

“Then came the word of the Lord to Jeremiah, saying,

Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh;

is there anything too hard for Me?”

Jeremiah 32:26, 27

 

“Ask of Me, and I will give you the nations for your inheritance,

and the ends of the earth for your possession.”

Psalm 2:8

 

“Then He brought him outside and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count

the stars if you are able to number them.”And He said to him, “So shall your descendants

be.”

Genesis 15:5

 

“Jesus replied, “truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt,

not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say

to this mountain, “Go, throw yourself into the sea, and it will be done.”

Matthew 21:21

 

The point is this, let’s trust YAH for the desires He has put in our hearts.

Let’s call to Him to help us with every problem in our lives.

Don’t let your salary determine what you can or can’t do.

Don’t let it determine what you can or can’t have.

The God of the universe has so much in store for you so don’t

let what’s on paper make you down size your dream.

Everything YAH has in store for you far exceeds the figure on your

payslip. Look to Him instead. He will open doors your salary can’t.

 

What’s on paper is not a true reflection of the amazing things YAH has

in store for you. Don’t settle for a life the paper creates.

What’s on the paper is so limiting. It closes the door to ALL that

YAH has for us.

 

As I close know there is more in store for you.

But to experience the more you need to trust YAH.

Don’t go by what’s on paper…….

 

Bless you friends!

Looking out at the Red Sea…..


 

They needed You Lord…….

The enemy was not far behind…..

Not just any army, but one of the best armies in the world….

Death, murder was on their minds….

As the people turned away they were faced with the Red Sea…..

Dead end…..

All hope was lost, we are doomed they cried out….

“Is it because there are no graves in Egypt that you have

taken us away to die in the wilderness?” Exodus 14:11

“There is no where to run to” they thought….

“We are trapped” they thought…..

“God has abandoned us” they thought…..

As they looked out at the Red Sea that is all they saw….

They failed to see the deliverance of God as they looked out…

 

We know the story well. We know God came through. He

parted the Red Sea and the Egyptians all died!

But I want to show you something I saw the other day.

The Israelites looked at the Red Sea and saw a dead end but

this is what the word says:

 

Your way [in delivering Your people] was through the sea, and Your paths through the great waters, yet Your footsteps were not traceable, but were obliterated. (‭Psalm‬ ‭77‬:‭19‬ AMP)

 

God’s deliverance was through the Red Sea!!!

What does that mean?

 

You may be in a hard place with no way out but God will

make a way for you.

You may think you are doomed and the enemy has won

but God will make a way for you!

He will part a Red Sea if He needs to…..!

You may feel trapped but He will free you…..

The enemy may seem strong and powerful but against

God they are powerless to do anything to us……

 

As you look out at the Red Sea see the deliverance of God!!

He will come through for you…..

The way may seem closed, like the enemy has won but

that is not true!!!! There is a way!

We serve a mighty God indeed…..

He is our Deliverer!

Look out across your Red Sea and see the deliverance of God!

A prayer about destiny and direction.


THOUGHT OF THE DAY.

My sad life’s dilapidated, a falling – down barn; 

build me up again by Your word.
Barricade the road that goes Nowhere;
grace me with Your clear revelation.
I choose the true road to Somwhere,
I post Your road signs at every curve and corner.
I grasp and cling to whatever You tell me;
Proverbs 119:28  (The Message)
This proverb is my prayer. It’s my cry to God. I pray it will
give you hope as you read it and personalise it!
“Barricade the road that goes Nowhere”!
“I choose the true road to Somwhere”!
God has a “Somwhere” for each and every one of us.
It may seem like nothing is happening in your life,
it may seem like things are falling apart but,
GOD has a “Somewhere” for you!
Have a great day!
Rolain.
