By A Thin Thread

Courage Against The Odds

What battles have you found yourself in? How long have you been waiting for the touch of God to break forth into your life? How many prayers have you prayed but they don’t seem to be answered? How much have you struggled and held on, only to feel defeated?

If you are anything like me, it has been a very long and tough battle. Everything that could go wrong, has! Everything you loved or worked so hard for has been taken away! Everything you’ve tried to do has been less than successful. Blow after blow has left you feeling crushed, broken, and exhausted!

It would be easy to give up. It would be easy to say forget it. It would be easy to say “why should I go on?”. It would be easy to let it all go and start playing the world’s way. You’ve been fighting the battles for so long, it’s easy to lose all hope because you are holding on by a very thin thread!

Well I’m here to tell you…HOLD ON, GOD’S NOT DONE WITH YOU YET and you are primed for the biggest comeback, the most amazing restoration, the most incredible and prosperous time of your life. God has seen you struggle. He has seen your tears. He has seen your defeat. But he has also seen you hold onto your little bit of faith; which in itself is a miracle that you could hold onto it through it all.

Deuteronomy 20:4 “for the Lord your God is he who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies, to give you the victory.”

Matthew 21:21 “Truly I tell you,” Jesus replied, “if you have faith and do not doubt, not only will you do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ it will happen.”

One thing to keep in mind is that we are still in the timeframe between Passover and Pentecost. This is the time when the disciples watched Jesus die on the cross and ran for their lives. They were in dire straits. Here they thought Jesus was going to make everything alright, only to watch the Son of God be crucified. And they were next. But then, 50 days later in the upper room, they were filled with the Holy Spirit which gave them courage, wisdom, and the strength to go out and change the world for the Gospel.

You’ve been through alot and there’s no doubt in my mind that you have had to struggle to hold on to any ounce of faith. That’s okay. God understands and knows that you are doing your very best to keep believing. Just hold on for a little bit longer. June 4th marks God’s Pentecost. It’s His time to break the curses that have been plaguing you! And if that’s not enough…we are in a very prophetic time frame of Israel’s jubilee which means double blessings for those who are standing with God’s people! It’s God’s time for signs, wonders, and miracles. It’s the time that God will rebuke the devourer for your sake and pays back everything that has been stolen. Don’t miss your moment!

God’s restoration is coming. He promises to restore far greater than anything you’ve lost. Don’t give up your hope! Keep standing on His word and see it come to pass in your life.

God promises that you are more than a conqueror! (Romans 8:37) He promises that you will overcome and have the victory! (I John 5:4) He promises to be fighting the battle for you. It doesn’t matter what you feel or see…God is fighting on your behalf!

Your greatest moments of life are right in front of you. Don’t give up just when it’s right around the corner and in sight. You’ve fought your way around the mountains, over and over and over again. You’re almost there! Hold on for God is about to burst forth into your life like never before. Don’t lose your courage and don’t lose your ground when your best times are just ahead!

Your Harvest Is On It’s Way! Stay Strong Till You See Your Breakthrough!

We Salute You

John 15:13: “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.”

John 14:27: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”

Psalm 82:3-4: “Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”

To all of those who have served or currently serving…Your sacrifices are remembered and we appreciate all that you do (day in and day out). You never look for accolades or a pat on the back. You chose to serve with dedication, dignity, and honor. You are true heroes and we thank God for each of you!

To the families of brave soldiers…Your sacrifices are also remembered on this day. Not just for your loved ones, but for your unspoken sacrifices of supporting your family member, keeping the household moving forward while your soldier is away on tour, the losses you may have encountered along the way, and for standing strong with our returning heroes who may be a wounded warrior or dealing with PTSD.

Freedom is not free and many unspoken sacrifices had to be given in order for us to enjoy the freedoms we have in this country. To all the fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, aunts, uncles, husbands and wives…We proudly salute you all, express our deepest gratitude, and ask God to fill you with peace beyond comprehension, healing that has no bounds, and love so you know you’re never alone.

God’s Blessings

Isn’t it amazing how quickly we can forget the incredible blessings that that God has given us? Once we accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, we tend to struggle very heavily in our minds. Being bombarded by negative thoughts and doubts; leading us into stress and worry. We think it sounds great in the Bible yet we doubt that it could happen in our lives today. However, God is not a respecter of persons. (Acts 10:34)

Every single day, we need to remind ourselves that if God said it…then, it will be done. There are no “ifs or buts” about it. No matter what we are facing, God gave us the answer. All we need to do is begin believing that whatever He did in the Bible, He can and will do for us in our lives today!

Let’s take a closer look at what God has to say…

God's Benefits

So, when you are feeling down and nothing seems to be going right…REMEMBER, His precious gifts!

What do you need today?

  • You need healing, it’s yours.
  • You need Divine protection, it’s yours.
  • You need favor, it’s yours.
  • You need a miracle, it’s yours.
  • You need forgiveness, it’s yours.

God loves us more than we could ever imagine and He wants us to live a REWARDING and SUCCESSFUL life.

Simply ASK – TRUST – and BELIEVE! God will provide anything you need! Now, it may not happen when you want it to or in the way you would like. However, God will provide in His perfect timing and in His perfect way! So take the limitations off God and let Him be your source in every area of your life. Stand firm, keep believing, and it will be done. We serve a very BIG GOD and He will not disappoint you!

Imagine the Scene

Jesus had caused the lame to walk, the deaf to hear, and the mute to speak. He had taught with authority unlike any teachers of the day and performed miracles that astounded all who witnessed them.

Yet the Savior of the world was hung on a cross, deserted by His followers, and then buried in a tomb.

But there’s more to the story. Three days later, a resurrection took place. Now, the head that was crowned with thorns is crowned with glory.

Let this perspective sink into your heart today…THERE’S MORE TO YOUR STORY.

No matter the past disappointment, present difficulty, or discouraging forecast: Your story is still being written… and the hand of God is holding the pen.

But the fact that God is writing the story doesn’t mean you don’t have a part to play. You need to stand on His word, hold onto your faith, let God be your source and remember, what you’ve been through may be difficult, but God will work it out for your good. Don’t give up now. There is more to your story.

“I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” (Romans 8:18)

The scene you’re in today might be disappointing, but you don’t have to let it be the defining factor of your story. God has more in store for you and your next chapter is being written. Continue to stand in faith and watch God’s incredible story for you unfold into something amazing!

Excerpt by Steven Furtick

Cherish Your Mother

Mother’s are very special in God’s eyes and should be honored in all her ways. Whether your mother is with you, across the miles from you, or in heaven…remember them on this day and let them know just how special they truly are.

Matthew 15:4: “For God commanded, saying, ‘Honor your father and your mother…”
Proverbs 31:25-30: “Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.””

Mirror Reflection

Mirror ReflectionHave you ever wondered why you are made with the personality and looks that you have? I think we all do from time to time; and worse, in today’s society, we tend to want to look like someone else such as an actor, actress, model, singer, or your next door neighbor. It’s always easy to compare ourselves only to come up with a list of things we would like to change. Whether it’s losing weight, smaller noses, better features, smaller waist, muscular, etc, etc, etc. and even if we were able to change those things, we still wouldn’t be satisfied as we can easily find something else we don’t like about ourselves.

But, guess what? I have great news for you today!

Instead of thinking about the things you would like to change, see yourself as a MASTERPIECE! God made you exactly the way you are and when you accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior, something amazing happened…the Holy Spirit came to live within you. So, when God looks upon you, He doesn’t see what you see; He sees you as perfect in His image and in His sight.

Genesis 1:27: “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female, He created them.”
Psalm 139:13-16: “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.”

Boy, doesn’t that change your perspective a lot? See, when we start thinking in this manner, our lives quickly change. We aren’t striving to be different or unique because we already are!

Mirror Reflection 2

 

It’s okay if you feel you’d like to change something about yourself. Just pray about it and release it. If God feels the change is necessary then the Holy Spirit will guide you to make those changes when the time is right. Just don’t fret over it. Instead, enjoy your life and look in the mirror knowing that you are BEAUTIFUL, UNIQUE, and A MASTERPIECE!

God loves you this very moment and thinks you are WONDERFUL! Since God sees Jesus when He sees us; He is completely satisfied with us. We have His favor, His love, and His miraculous solutions chasing us down. There is absolutely nothing we need to do except see ourselves as God sees us. He made us, He knows us, and He loves us. There is nothing missing, nothing broken and nothing lacking! So, look in the mirror today and praise God for who you are.
