The Lord gave him a picture…..


“Then God led Abram outside. God said, “Look at the sky. There are so many stars
you cannot count them. And your descendants will be too many to count.”
Abram believed the Lord. And the Lord accepted Abram’s faith and that faith made
him right with God.
  
Genesis 15:5, 6
The Lord led Abram outside and gave him a picture of his life and that’s the way it’s supposed to be.
But as I look back at my life I see how I allowed people to give me a picture. The enemy was in the mix
as well and did everything in his power to enforce the picture he had given me
because I didn’t know better. It took years to break the negative picture I had been
given and thanks to God the healing is still ongoing.
The Lord has a picture for you too. The picture is amazing and glorious but there is so much opposition
from the enemy. he doesn’t want you to walk in the plan God has for your life because that’s what the picture
is about. It’s about where God wants to take you. It’s about what He has in store for you.
But the enemy uses fear, abuse, manipulation and a whole lot of other things to blind you to God’s picture.
Don’t accept the enemy’s pictures. They are all lies.
his pictures get you depressed, fearful, anxious, greedy, and weak.
his pictures are all void of goodness, peace, love, fulfillment, faith, joy and every other good thing
God is.
Reject them at every turn. But you need help. You need the Lord’s help.
The good news is this, the picture you have now can be changed. That’s what happened to me.
My picture was really bad but the Lord came and changed it. He replaced the dark, hopeless,
fearful picture and replaced it with His life-giving, fresh, new, energizing picture!
And that’s what He does for us as His children.
As I end I will leave you with a scripture that sums up what I have been talking about,
“Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, 
which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand).”
Jeremiah 33:3
Blessings to you, friends

For our good…..


“And we know that for those who love God all things work together
for good, for those who are called according to His purpose.”
Romans 8:28

All things work together for good to those who love God.
I love this!
As I look at all the bad things that have happened in my life to this point
it’s comforting to know that the Lord is working all those things together for my good.
The good and the bad all being worked together for my good!
What an amazing thought!

Life may be hard at the moment but take heart friend, He is working all things
together for your good.
You may have had a difficult past that you think you can’t recover from but be encouraged,                                                              the Lord is working your situation together for good.
Things may seem dim, bleak and hopeless right now but it will get brighter.
There will be a turn around I assure you. The darkness will turn to light. the closed
door will open, the defeat will be overcome by victories.
Hold on to this word because it is also prophetic. ALL THINGS are being worked
together for your good even if it doesn’t seem like it. No matter how hard the enemy
tries to derail your life the word says YAH is working ALL THINGS together for your good!

Will you take Him at His word? Will you believe Him?
His word is true and cannot be challenged. As you look at your life rest in the knowledge that the
Lord is at work in your life. You are not alone. His hand is on you.
He is so good! He is faithful and He can be trusted. Put all of your hope in Him.
Bless you friends….
