I hope and pray all is well with everyone reading this blog!!
Earlier this morning when I saw the Scripture for today’s Our Daily Bread, I smiled because that was the Scripture (Exodus 2) that Pastor Keion Henderson preached Friday night during the “Maximize Your Potential” conference at The Faith Center in Sunrise, FL.
So I quickly texted a screenshot to my ‘Sunrise Sisters’ so I wouldn’t forget.
Then I continued reading…. When I reached the last paragraph…oh my goodness!!
I took another screenshot and sent it to the Tuesday Prayer Group because that was our discussion and prayer yesterday regarding the school shooting in Nashville.
God was and is speaking to us TODAY to let us know that #ItsAlreadyDone!!
“What’s done?” you ask.
Well, after texting the image, I immediately heard, “YOU (Father God) take what the enemy meant for evil and YOU (Adonai) turn it for good….YOU (El Shaddai) turn it for good. Yes, YOU (Abba) take what the enemy meant for evil, and YOU (Jehovah) turn it for good.”
Since I couldn’t remember the song title, I jumped on YouTube for a quick search, and there it was!!!
“I’m (We’re) gonna SEE a (your) VICTORY for the #battle belongs to YOU LORD!!!
The good thing is that “this” did NOT catch GOD by surprise. Yes, many wonder why bad things happen to good people… why bad things happen to innocent children, innocent people. BUT the Sovereign God that I know who’s infinite in ALL His ways…. Even though we may not understand, we have to TRUST HIS PLAN!! Glory!! Hallelujah!! #LeanNot #LeanNotToYourOwnUnderstanding
Father God, I thank You for this day. I thank You for Your breathe in our lungs (the song You woke me with this morning), allowing us to see this new day!! In all that is happening Lord, we give You thanks.
We thank You for Your mercies that are new every morning. Great is Your faithfulness!!!
Lord, for every hurting heart, every broken heart, for every situation or challenge that Your people are facing this day, Lord I pray Your mighty hand move in each of their lives.
“Breathe on us! Spirit breathe, come and breathe on us” (the song You blessed me to hear this morning during school drop-off)!
Not by might, nor by power but by Your Spirit, says the Lord!!! We thank You for Your sweet Holy Spirit. Continue to lead and guide Your people.
Allow us to see Your victory, for You have already given it to us by ‘allowing’ Your Son, Jesus Christ, to not only die on the cross for us BUT to get up, so that we, too, can GET UP and RISE OUT OF THE ASHES!!
I pray peace that ‘TRANSCENDS’… as You told us in the Our Daily Bread yesterday.
I bless You…for no devil is bigger than YOU! YOU reign in our lives; YOU reign at our jobs; YOU reign in our schools. YOU reign in our homes. We submit our will and say, ‘Have Your way! For the battle is not ours but it is Yours!!!
We will continue to #trust #believe #havefaith and know that YOU are working EVERYTHING out for our good and for Your glory!!! So I give YOU thanks! I give YOU honor that is due Your name. In Jesus Christ’ name. Amen!!
Trust God’s Plan!
