Isaiah 54:4 (THE MESSAGE)
It is important to note that the essence of our living is on him who loved us and gave his life for us all. Psalms 119:31We cannot afford to live for ourselves or for any man’s glory. That’s why when challenges of life comes with its roaring, tumbling, fightings, war and critizes everyone react differently. These different reaction is determined by how much we have walked with God, how much we have depended on him.
7 Unfazed by rumor and gossip, Heart ready, trusting in God,
8 Spirit firm, unperturbed, Ever blessed, relaxed among enemies,
Psalm 112:7 (THE MESSAGE)
War may arise, storm may blow, wind may uproot things around us but what will make us stand firm is the rate at which our heart is fixed on the master. Psalm 40:14 Many had fallen, even the mighty that we uphold in our hearts. It is foolishness to trust in man, to trust in vanities. Man can fail at any moment, don’t be offended. Things can fail you, it’s not their fault.
They are made that way Psalm 5:11. That’s why men will be men and God will be God but never put your trust in any man no matter their promise to you. The scriptures talks about even though I walk in the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil at all.
11 But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them sing joyful praises forever. Spread your protection over them, that all who love your name may be filled with joy.
Ps 5:11 (New Living Translation)
The only reason why we cannot fear any evil, provocations of the evil one is because we are sure of him who is there for us always II Corithians 5:15 .The beginning of failure is to trust in man whose breathe is in his nostrils, who is not capable of killing the soul. Many have been disappointed because men fail them, because their people disapprove them. They think all hope is lost, they don’t know that there is greater one who one can trust not just for the main time but forever.
15 and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.
2 Cor 5:15 (NKJV)
Why do you remain in that of confusion wishing day and night as if there is no more hope for you again? 1 Peter 4:13 Why do cry in vain over disappointment and trials of this life, why do you put blames on people especially those who fail you. Galatians 2:20 Rejoice! For the lion of the tribe of Judah have won the battle, he has given you victory. Now it is time to arise and shine your light in this crook and perverse generation.
25 He is able to save completely all who come to God through him. Since he will live forever, he will always be there to remind God that he has paid for their sins with his blood.
Heb 7:25 (TLB)
Take up your shoes, be clothe with strength, and gird yourself with the armour that shields, wear the breast plate of righteousness. Arise! Shine, for your light has come and the glory of God is risen upon you. Isaiah 60:1 Wear your dancing you. You cannot be small, you have a backbone, a strengthener, advocate, standby, upholder, and all that you could ever need for life and godliness. Take up vision and make it straight and run with it.
Never be dismayed or frustrated in life for you have been made priest and king unto our God Galatians 4:27. Who can stand before you now? No one, not even the Goliath of Gath. By God you have run through a troop and you have leaped over a wall. Rejoice! Romans 5:2 Who said it and it comes to pass when God has not said it. 1Thessalonians 5:16
Our trust should sole be on God not a partial one which is equal to nothing. Those that put their trust in God can never be ashamed.
Romans 10:11. People who trust in God are always focuses, they have set their face like a flint and cannot be ashamed Isaiah 50:7. That you are afraid does not mean you should give up, don’t lose courage because thousands may fall at your side and even ten thousand at your right side but I can assure that none will touch you because you trust in the one who shields you forever. Psalm 91:7, Philippians 1:20
In trusting God, rejoice continually and take possession of all that God has for you. Never be ashamed of anything, no matter what it is. Isaiah 49:23. When war rise up from the nook and cranny of the world and it seems that they may overwhelm you open your eyes see the glory of the Lord because those that be with you are stronger and higher that those against you. See well, the almond tree that bud fruitfully all around, open your eyes, see the defeat of the enemy, see the wicked being destroyed and wasted all because your trust in the Almighty whose footstool is the earth and the inhabitants are his and all belongs to him. Isaiah 45:17
You cannot be ashamed even when ten thousand rise up against you and your family, you cannot fail even if the enemy have written the verdict against you. You have been called out darkness of depression, frustration, poverty, illusion, failure, death, torture in to the light of salvation, fruitfulness, grace, peace, love, compassion and all good things you can ever think or imagined Psalm 37:19. Cheer up, the word works, its working for you, it’s working in your family and home. It’s too late to ridiculed. Rejoice! For in him you live, move and have your being. You totality dwells in him. Acts 17:28
