Friday’s FIX 12/22/17

“The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.” – Psalm 23:1

The weekend is quickly approaching, and we made it through this week. Let’s give thanks for all the lessons learned and even for all the bad this week. The LORD is my shepherd, meaning the Lord is my guide. That is a strong and bold promise the Lord is allowing himself to be for us. However I can’t help but to reread theses three words, “I LACK NOTHING”. Lack meaning less than, or barely, or nothing. You and I lack nothing in this world because we have the Lord. When you have the Lord you have everything and more some. When you have the Lord everything is a prayer away. When you have the Lord you are no longer alone, but with company directly from the heavens. When you have the Lord you no longer fight or need to defend yourself. When you have the Lord, you could literally lose everything and still feel within like you have everything.

YOU AND I LACK NOTHING!

So whatever it is that you are in need of, what are you doing that you still haven’t received it? I believe our Lord is a Lord that loves to see His children happy and will do anything to bring us a smile. However He can’t be this to us, if we can’t hold ourselves accountable to seeking Him with a heart of thanksgiving. If you only seek when you are in need, eventually it will catch up with you and He won’t move His divine powers to provide. The Lord knows us and for that reason He knows when we are worshipping Him with all our might or just worshipping Him to get what we need. What are you doing that you haven’t received what you need? If whatever your doing isn’t working, change up your plan of methods. Reinvent yourself and ask the Lord to mold you to His image. It’s time to change things up and look for the Lord at all times. When we seek Him at all times, the more we gain without even having to ask. The more you seek Him the more you have. The Lord is willing to work, but you must work too. Be active under His name in His kingdom.

PRAYER (RPEAT IF NEEDED)

Lord,
I believe in what you told me, if I have you I lack nothing. Forgive me for halving my worship and my devotion toward you. Lord I ask you to change the way I seek you and to mark it as my identity. I ask you to reveal yourself to me more and more. I want to know you for who they say you are, and not by how I have seen you. I believe You are way more than a person that just gives me what I want. They call you father, protector, light, shepherd, rock; show me those sides to You. Im lacking because I’m truly not seeking; forgive me. The more I seek You, the more I will find You. I believe it and I receive it. Thank you for giving to this begger, who begs for everything besides Your endless presences. Thank you for not giving up on me, but for holding on tighter to me. Thank you for being who YOU are yesterday, today and always. Thank you for never changing. Amen!

Blessings!

Thursday’s Truths 12/21/17

“Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.” ~ John 13:7

You do not realize now, reminds the Lord. I know I’m not the only one who wants to know or have all the answers at that exact moment I need them. There’s many things we need to go through that were not going to get the answers to, but we need to trust that the Lord is going to give us the answers at the time that we’re ready to receive it. Am I the only one that goes through this? God‘s timing is perfect timing. And although you want answers at the moment, you’re truly not ready to receive what He’s about to tell you, or give you.

We must remember that one of the fruits of the spirit is patients. We must have patience to trust in the Lord, and believe that He will provide everything we need. We must have patience to accept that right now it’s not going to be right now. We need to understand that God works on His clock and not ours. Were not meant to know things right away, but we are meant to know things when we’re ready to hear them. Patience is a fruit that takes a lot of time and experience to gain. The more you practice the better you will become. The moment you have patients in your life the more peace you also have. You won’t have to stress unnecessary things because you have the confidence to trust in the Lord, in all that He does.

It’s okay not knowing everything. It’s okay living in the unknown. It’s okay. Trust that when it’s time to know anything, the Lord will give you the answers.

Blessings!
