You Are Going To Be Alright!

brooke-cagle-52215-unsplash.jpg

It is great to know that we can have confidence in God.
To know that we can trust Him. To know that He is working in our lives. Things are not out of control, God has everything in hand. There is an old song: ‘He’s got the whole world in His hand’. It goes on: ‘He’s got you and me brother/sister in His hand’. Because of this we can know that we are going to be alright.

GOD HAS A PLAN

For each of us God has a plan. You are not exempted or excluded.

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord.

Just look at the following:
There is a plan and God has a plan for you. God knows the plan that He has for you. It is good to know that God knows the blueprint for our lives. Sometimes it feels like we are just tossed around by circumstances. In the middle of all this it is great to know that we can have the knowledge that God knows what is going on for each of us! I love the phrase: ‘Declares (says) the LORD’ (Jeremiah 29:11 – NIV) This is confidence, knowing that God has the master plan.

God Is Interested In Each One Of Us

julian-schropel-1148238-unsplash.jpg

GOD IS INTERESTED IN EACH OF US

We don’t approach God to make Him aware of our situation. We don’t go to God so that He can see our need. He already knows. We go to God because we love and we need Him. God knows that we need Him. But sometimes we don’t realize how much we need Him When we realize this we can run to Him.

Psalm 139:17-18 How precious it is, Lord, to realize that you are thinking about me constantly! I can’t even count how many times a day your thoughts turn toward me. And when I waken in the morning, you are still thinking of me!

AGAIN AND AGAIN

2 Corinthians 1:9-10 We felt we were doomed to die and saw how powerless we were to help ourselves; but that was good, for then we put everything into the hands of God, who alone could save us, for he can even raise the dead. And he did help us and saved us from a terrible death; yes, and we expect him to do it again and again.

You may feel that things are beyond your control. It may even feel like you are dying. You may feel powerless and helpless. These are not bad emotions. They are good in that they make us realize just how much we need God. The joy of this scripture is that ‘He did help us and saved us.’ That is what God wants to do. And we can expect Him to do just that again and again. This can happen as we come to Him again and again.

He Is Waiting

julian-schropel-1148238-unsplash.jpg

DON’T STOP GOING TO GOD

Don’t turn to other things. Perhaps God has not come through for you, as you would have expected. But that does not mean we stop going to Him. We must keep on going back again and again.

Psalm 139:16 You saw me before I was born and scheduled each day of my life before I began to breathe. Every day was recorded in your book!

On the basis of this great fact, we can go to God without hesitation. It is for this same reason that we should not turn to other things. No matter what, don’t stop going to God.

APPROACHING GOD EVERY DAY

This is the type of lifestyle that we need to develop. A lifestyle of daily going back to God should be our goal. Running on our own strength was not what God intended for us. Running on His strength was what He had planned for us.

Psalm 5:3 Each morning I will look to you in heaven and lay my requests before you, praying earnestly.

Have you approached God today for anything? Call on Him. Develop a lifestyle of going to God over and over again. He will never stop loving you.

He Is Waiting

julian-schropel-1148238-unsplash.jpg

WE CAN APPROACH GOD

We can approach God again and again. God is open and receptive to our approaches. We do not need to fear. We can approach God with anything that is on our hearts and He is always ready and willing to listen and hear. Hebrews 4:16 So let us come boldly to the very throne of God and stay there to receive his mercy and to find grace to help us in our times of need. The key here is to go to the Lord and to stay there. Then we can receive His mercy and His grace.

HE IS WAITING

Yet the Lord still waits for you to come to him so he can show you his love; he will conquer you to bless you, just as he said. For the Lord is

faithful to his promises. Blessed are all those who wait for him to help them.
(Isaiah 30:18)

The thought that God is waiting for me to come to Him is a source of great joy and great delight.
Look at God’s motivation for waiting for us, so that He can show us His love. I want to experience more of His love. How about you? Keep on going to God; take all your issues and concerns to Him because He is waiting. Waiting to be good to each one of us. Yes, He wants to be good to you.

Again and Again

julian-schropel-1148238-unsplash.jpg

We can go to the Lord with everything. But what is even more of a delight is that we can keep on going to Him. We will not exhaust Him. We will not run out of opportunities to go to the Lord and call on Him. He is always waiting, always ready and always willing to receive us. Again and again we can go to the Lord. The problem comes when we begin to think that we can’t go to Him. But the truth is that the door is always open.

NEW MERCY FROM GOD EVERY MORNING

With each new day, God has something new for each of us. It is like we have fresh bread available to us each day.
There is not one day that we have to eat what God did yesterday. With God, each day is like starting all over again.

Lamentations 3:22-23 Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

The key word here is ‘NEW’. New mercy and new compassion every morning. When you got up this morning there was new mercy and compassion for you.
When you get tomorrow morning there will be more of His new compassion and mercy for you.

The Blessing

tyler-nix-626687-unsplash

BROKEN HEARTS

Today, your heart may be broken. You may say that if I knew the condition of your heart, I would not be asking this ‘total heart commitment’ from you. But God is the master in handling the broken hearts.

Psalm 51:17 ‘A broken and a contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.’

God wants to help us. He wants to come along side and walk us through.

Psalm 86:11 Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.’

God is looking for undivided hearts.

THE BLESSING

There is a blessing for those who will seek God with all their hearts:

Psalm 119:2 ‘Blessed are those who seek Him with all their hearts.’

Let us make the right decision. Let God into your heart.

Psalm 139:23 ‘Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.’

God knows our hearts. We need to love God with all our hearts

Praising God With All Out Hearts

tyler-nix-626687-unsplash

WHAT IS IN OUR HEARTS IS EASY TO SEE

Luke 6:45 ‘The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil that is stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of the heart his mouth speaks.’

What comes out of our mouths is a reflection of what is in our hearts. If I really love God, then you will hear about it. It will emerge from the way I speak. What is stored up in your heart, today?

Luke 12:34 ‘Where your treasure is there will your heart be also.’
If we are going to love God we need pure hearts.

PRAISING GOD WITH ALL OUR HEARTS

This is something else we must do with all our hearts.

Psalm 9:1 ‘I will praise you, O Lord, with all me heart.’

Praise is a very important part of our lives.

Psalm 111:1 ‘I will extol the Lord with all my heart.’

Definition of extol: To praise highly or to glorify. If you are battling in some area, then it is time to start praising God. Praise is one of the tools to overcoming. We are called to praise God with all our hearts

Doing What We Do With All Our Hearts

tyler-nix-626687-unsplash

DOING WHAT WE DO WITH ALL OUR HEARTS

Colossians 3:23 ‘Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for me.’

This puts a very different light on things. We are encouraged to do what we have to do with all our hearts.
This speaks about our day-to-day lives. We can do what we do as unto the Lord. If our everyday lives can be as though we were working for God, then every aspect of our lives can become an example of our love for God. This can make even the most mundane task something special. If we can apply this too our lives then we can apply it to other areas of our lives.

LOVING GOD IS A COMMAND

Joshua 22:5 ‘But be very careful to keep the commandments and the law that Moses the servant of the Lord gave you: to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, to obey his commands, to hold fast to Him, and to serve Him with all your heart and with all you soul.’

How do you follow a command? By making the decision. Our love for God needs to be total, involving our whole being.

Deuteronomy 6:5 ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.’

This affects how we should seek Him. This affects how we should fear Him. This affects how we should obey Him. This affects how we should love and serve Him. Let us make this decision that we are going to love God.

Serving God With All Our Hearts

tyler-nix-626687-unsplash

SERVING GOD WITH ALL OUR HEARTS

Joshua 22:5 ‘But be very careful to keep the commandments and the law that Moses the servant of the Lord gave you: to love the Lord your God… and to serve Him with all your heart and with all you soul.’

God wants us to serve Him with all our hearts. God is not into half-hearted commitment. God is looking for total involvement and total commitment. He needs to have first place in our lives: number one on the priority list. God needs to become a consuming passion. We need to love and serve God with all our hearts.

WITH ALL YOUR HEART

What does this mean? If we say that we must do something with all our hearts, what are we speaking about? It means that we give everything that we have got. God has got our full attention. He becomes the focus of our lives. From the seat or center of our secret thoughts and emotions we make our focal point God. God becomes our hub. Everything else moves around that main thing.

With All Your Heart

tyler-nix-626687-unsplash

Our hearts are a very important element in our lives. I am not talking about our physical hearts. I am talking about one’s innermost character, feelings, or inclinations. The central or innermost part. The center of our being. This is the part that God is interested in. He is watching our hearts. The Bible gives clear indication of the role our hearts have to play.

LOVING GOD WITH ALL OUR HEARTS

God is looking for this. We need to love God with a love that is a passion.

Luke 10:27 ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind.’

How do you love with all your heart? Certainly not just on a Sunday. Our entire lives and our entire beings need to love God totally. God should not just be one of our passions. He needs to be the passion of our lives and everything else will come into priority. Have you given God first place in your heart?
