1 Peter 5:7
Give ALL your worries to Him, because He cares for you.
God is with you, All Ways.... Always !!!!
How many of you remember those old commercials about Maytag repair man?
For you young ones out there, the commercials were for the Maytag appliance company. The concept showed a sweet, elderly, gentleman in a Maytag repairman uniform. He was always eagerly waiting in a lonely office for the phone to ring so he could go "repair" something, but the appliances were apparently so well made that his services were never needed. He sat alone day in and day out, his precious time being wasted. You could not help but love the sweet Maytag repairman, but you also felt very sad for him. He was a man without a purpose.
I sometimes picture God that way, I can't help but feel sorry for Him at times. I think we often times neglect Him and try to go it alone. We forget that He is always right here waiting to help us, all we have to do is ask. Yet why does it seem that we only turn to Him in a crisis or when we are in panic mode? He wants to be part of our everyday lives. The Bible says He will never leave us nor forsake us, this means He is always with us, ALWAYS!
But how many of us actually live our lives in such a way as to reflect the constant presence of God?
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you wherever you go; He will NEVER leave you nor forsake you.”
Can you even comprehend what this scripture means? Do you actually realize that the Lord of the entire universe is constantly with you?
When you really stop to meditate on and grasp this amazing concept, its truth is mind boggling!
God is everything to everyone. He is all we will ever need. He is right here beside each and every one of us every minute and every precious second of every day!
When you begin to actually understand this principle, the doors of your mind begin to open one by one thinking of all the great, mighty and amazingly wonderful things God is and all that He can and will do for us simply because He loves us. All we have to do is ask. The Bible says to keep on asking, to go boldly to the throne and seek God in ALL things. The scriptures tell us to fervently pray about everything, big and small! He is sitting right there, waiting to be needed, waiting for you to call His name and invite Him into your everyday life.
Some people have this misconception that God should not be bothered with all the little mundane things and that He has much bigger issues and "real"problems to solve. This could not be further from the truth. God does not have to leave the prayers and the severity of a situation of one person to come help you, remember, He is ALWAYS with you. He is omniscient. He is all things, to all people, all the time. The scriptures tell us that God is even concerned about the birds of the air, He takes care of them and feeds them. How much more then does He care for us, His children?
God is not a pushy God, He will never try to pry His way into our lives. We must through faith and salvation have a realization of our constant need of Him and seek Him diligently. We must die to our old, selfish, I can do it myself, ways and trust our lives in their entirety to our loving God! When we do this and resign to the fact that we can do nothing without Him, we will see the most amazing changes in our lives. We will be able to do and accomplish things we never dreamed of. Doors will be opened, dreams will be realized, peace will surround us and we will walk in the favor and blessings of God that surpass all understanding. What are you waiting for? Do not miss one more day covered in the presence of God and all the supernatural wonders that accompany His love.
It must begin with us, we must first seek Him and all the rest shall be done...
For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are ALL things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.
God is ever present .. He is everything! He is our comforter when we are sad, a mighty counselor when we need discernment and a healthy dose of wisdom. He is the God of peace when we are stressed, anxious and fearful. He is the healer of our mind, body and soul. He is our great physician. He is a shoulder to cry on and He shares in all of our greatest joys. He causes us to be triumphant by being our edifier, and our great encourager. He is our strength when we are weak. He's our shelter, our shield, our fortress and our strong tower protecting us from all harm. He is our rescuer, our deliverer, our mighty Lord and our personal savior. He is our life coach, our marriage counselor, and a teacher for our children.
He is our guide and the finest architect of the best laid plans for our lives. He finds us when we are lost. He forgives us when we sin against Him. God is always right there ready to dole out the unending blessings, and the amazing grace we need to get through the trials of every day. He cares about each and every little thing. If it matters to you, it matters to God! If that is all not brilliant enough, He also commands His Legions of heavenly angels to take charge over us.They constantly camp out around us, guarding us in all of our ways,( Psalm 91). We are never alone! Never!
In ALL your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.
All means all, not some, not a select few not just what you deem important enough to let God be in charge of, but in ALL our ways, in everything we think, do and say, we must acknowledge Him! We mustn't leave God sitting all alone waiting for our phone call. Let Him lead you. He knows the best way, His way is the only way. He knows what we need when and how we need it. He is the universe's greatest repairman, the difference is, unlike Maytag appliances we are in constant need of repair, we will never not need God. We need to train ourselves to fully rely on God for ALL things. We need to praise him with grateful hearts for all He tirelessly and lovingly does for us all. We are nothing without Him! He can make anyone great and strong. We can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens us!
You are great and powerful, glorious, splendid, and majestic. Everything in heaven and earth is yours, and you are king, supreme ruler over all.
All riches and wealth come from you; you rule everything by your strength and power; and you are able to make anyone great and strong.
Thank You Father that you are always with me, holding my hand through life and carrying me when I'm to tired to do it alone. I only need to say your name and you, the God of the universe is all I will ever need! I praise you my sweet Father and thank you for absolutely everything!
In Jesus name ...Amen!!
When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze.
For I am the Lord your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
