"For I know the plans I have for you", declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11 NIV

"I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ's sufficiency]. Philippians 4:13 Amplified Version
My dear readers as a child of God are you sick and tired of being sick and tired of letting satan buffet you around We read God's Word and pray, and then we still succumb to satan's tactics as by letting him get us into a pity party of all the things we see in our lives that we cannot just wave a magic wand and correct. Our biggest flaw in our walk with Jesus Christ is that we want Him to correct our problems and do it now. We want Him to pour a cup of water on the problem stick it in the microwave and in 3-5 minutes viola' the problem is gone. So we begin to ask ourselves do I really have the faith to let God be my Strong Mighty Tower, can I really run to Him and hide in the cleft of the Rock He has prepared for His children?
God spoke to my spirit by His Holy Spirit this morning and asked me, "My child do you really really trust me in ALL things, the most impossible things in your life? Things that are not the "norm" to turn around. I stopped a moment and I felt the almighty power of the Glory of God fill my whole being and I wanted to just let go and let God. I prayed LORD I DO BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN MOVE ANY MOUNTAIN, HEAL ANY DISEASE, YOU CAN HEAL SOMETHING THAT HAS NEVER BEEN HEALED BEFORE. YOU CAN CAST DOWN ANY BARRIER, NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOU. NOW LORD HELP MY UNBELIEF!

 The Holy Spirit loved and renewed me and showed me that I do not have the answers, but that I know the one that has all the answers. God will deliver in His time and according to His Will for me. BUT that I must TRUST HIM, TRUST HIM, TRUST HIM. I must tell Him everything, my desires, my needs, confess my failures, even though He already knows them all, He wants us to be completely honest with Him, this is the only way He can work in our life.Then trust Him to bring about what I want Him to change in my life. He reminded me, that first I must be willing to let Him CHANGE ME INTO WHAT HE WANTS ME TO BE. I must be so strong in His Word, I must not only read His Word, but I must devour it, I must digest it into my spirit. I must be in constant communication with Him in prayer. I will turn over my whole life for Him to remold into the child HE KNOWS I CAN BE AND THAT HE WANTS ME TO BE.

 Sometimes the problems in life are a cause of something that we are not willing to let go of, but GOD MUST CONTROL OUR MIND, OUR BODY AND OUR THOUGHTS AND MOST OF ALL OUR SPIRIT.

 Dear reader we must always be aware that even though we do not see into the Spirit World of God it is all around us all the time."When the servant of the man of God rose early and went out, behold an army with horses and chariots (the enemy) were around the city. Elisha's servant said to him, Alas my master! What shall we do? [Elisha] answered, Fear not: for those with us are more than those with them. (Their enemies). Then Elisha prayed, Lord, I pray you open his eyes that he may see. And the Lord opened the young man's eyes, and he saw and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha." 2 Kings 6:15,16,17 KJV. We must know without a shadow of a doubt that God has His Guardian Angels and His Warrior Angels around you and me all the time. We must always know that we are protected we need to always ask God to let us feel his Angels that are protecting us and to love God even more because He provides this for each of His Children. Thank God for the care He provides for each of us every single second. Even though we do not always see it, always be proud and thank Him for His protection. Let His Love surround you and take hold of your mind and be willing to let God work out our problems in His Time, remember His Time does not always go along with our time, but if we let Him do the work by Himself He will work it out JUST AT THE RIGHT TIME. WE MUST NEVER TRY TO HELP HIM (This has been hard for me to learn and I have made many a problem worse, just because I wanted to help God just a little bit, it never has and it never will work). OUR TRIUNE GOD IS SOVEREIGN. GOD, HIS SON JESUS, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT ARE CAPABLE OF HANDLING PROBLEMS AND SITUATIONS ALONE, ALL WE NEED TO DO IS TRUST AND BELIEVE THAT HE IS WORKING IN OUR LIVES TO SEE THE PROBLEMS RESOLVED, AND WHEN THEY ARE RESOLVED WE BECOME AS HE WOULD HAVE US TO BE A TRUE LIVING TESTIMONY OF A TRUE AND TRIED AND VICTORIOUS CHILD OF GOD.

 God never leads us through a trial that is not for his Honor and Glory. So, when your trial is victoriously past, you may not see the reason for the terrible turmoil of the trial that God led you through, but you will see in yourself a deeper faith, Spiritual growth and a deeper trust in God and His ability to keep you through anything.

 It may be years or just a few days before you meet someone that is going through the same trial and test that God led you through and your testimony of God's keeping and leading power through the test will be of immeasurable value to them. It may be the one thing that keeps them from giving up during the trial. Always give God the Glory for His leading and saving and keeping power over you every day. Love Gloria
