“At last we have freedom, for Christ has set us free! We must always cherish this truth and firmly refuse to go back into the bondage of our past.” Galatians 5:1!
Today I just want to praise the Lord for all the good that He has done in my life since I began my walk, but especially, for the blessings He gave me in the last days!
I opened my email just now and this is what I received from the Lord! (I’ve received this devotional weekly):
“I am the One who has set you free—free to walk in the higher place before my throne, free to live and dance within my Spirit-Winds, free to laugh in the face of adversity. Everything that could hold you back is now broken off from your life. Be free, my child! Be free!(…) Today, you will begin to understand the freedom I have given you to walk with omnipotence at your side, for I go with you, even until the end of all the ages.”
Really powerful isn’t it?! Came at the right moment, as usual. This past week, I finally received a positive answer for what I was waiting for a while: A new job!
I was really struggling about it, facing a lot of pshycological pressure by all sides, it was a tough time (even though the Lord was providing everything to me). Despite of all the difficulties, the Lord carried me through it and gave me the victory after all!
Like I said in my last post, sometimes we are hoping and waiting on the Lord, but people around us try to push us with coments that makes us feel down! Even when we are believing that God is fighting our battle!
So, if you are struggling on the waiting for an answer, I just want to remind you: What really matters is what God says aboout your situation, not what people say to you, even the closest ones.
Also, bring to your mind all the goodness that God already poured in your life! Be grateful and praise Him, even when the situation seems hopeless.
It is in times like this that He raises up His hand and rescues us! Don’t be bitter or doubt of His faithfulness!
When we praise Him and give Him all the glory, the doors of grace opens up for us and we receive all the blessings we need, at the right time! God is never late.
I know that is hard to keep the right perspective sometimes, being patient and don’t complaining, but this is what He is expecting from us: A good, grateful attitude, no matter what!
Raise up a new song today, despite of your situation,and watch God change your circumstances right before your eyes.
He loves you and He will do it! And when He does that, don’t forget to share your joy and give Him all the glory!
Take care friends, see you next time =)
9 The Lord replied[a] to them:
“I am sending you grain, new wine and olive oil,
enough to satisfy you fully;
never again will I make you
an object of scorn to the nations.
20 “I will drive the northern horde far from you,
pushing it into a parched and barren land;
its eastern ranks will drown in the Dead Sea
and its western ranks in the Mediterranean Sea.
And its stench will go up;
its smell will rise.”
Surely he has done great things!
21 Do not be afraid, land of Judah: be glad and rejoice.
Surely the Lord has done great things!
22 Do not be afraid, you wild animals,
for the pastures in the wilderness are becoming green.
The trees are bearing their fruit;
the fig tree and the vine yield their riches.
23 Be glad, people of Zion,
rejoice in the Lord your God,
for he has given you the autumn rains
because he is faithful.
He sends you abundant showers,
both autumn and spring rains, as before.
24 The threshing floors will be filled with grain;
the vats will overflow with new wine and oil.”
