Don’t you let the Devil make you believe that God doesn’t have better for you. Don’t you let the enemy make you believe that the Devil has greater passions for you. Don’t you let your disappointments hold you back from everything that Christ wants you to experience. Don’t you let the enemy hold you because the God who exalted Jesus is the same God yesterday, today, and forevermore and He is still doing a passionate work to change lives, to transform people and He always has something better to give because the Devil always gives a counterfeit bill but God owns the treasury.

God is a strategic God. He has laid out an exact plan for our lives down to the smallest details. God knows the people you’re going to need to fulfill your destiny. He knows who is going to need to give you a good break and who is going to need to put in a good word for you. He knows when someone is going to need to be there to help you out of a difficult time. God has it all figured out. He is not vague or approximate. God is orchestrating our lives down to the very second, causing us to be at the right place at the right time so we can meet the right people that He ordained before the foundation of the world.

I can look back over my life and see time and time again where God directed my steps down to the exact moment. If I had been ten seconds earlier or ten seconds later, I would have missed an opportunity. Today, be encouraged because your times are in His hands. He orchestrates your life, so keep your faith and trust in Him.

Amen!!

Do you know how important you are to God? He cares so much about every detail of your life. He cares about your thoughts, feelings and emotions. In fact, what you are going through is so important to Him that He records every sorrow and collects the tears you’ve shed.

Why would God record your sorrows and collect your tears? Because everything that affects you matters to Him. He is your Vindicator. He’s keeping an account of every wrong that’s ever been done to you so that He can make up for every single one of them. He wants to restore to you everything that has ever been stolen. He wants to heal every hurt and pain.

Today, know that God cares about the things that concern you. He cares about the things that hurt you. He is close to the brokenhearted, and He wants to bring you peace and comfort. Turn to Him and receive His love. Let Him bring healing to your heart and restoration to your soul.

It’s important to remember tonight that God is so much bigger than any problem, situation, person, need, or sorrow. His arms are open wide so that you may rest in Him. Close your eyes beautiful child, God is in control.

When I wrote this I didn’t know that tonight I would need to be reminded of it….

I stand amazed
At the love You lavish upon us
A people who are fallen, sinful and broken.
I stand amazed
At the patience You pour out on us
A people who are fickle and half hearted in their love for You.
I stand amazed
At the persistence You have shown to us
A people who stumble, fall and sin time and time again.
I stand amazed
At the promises You are committed to keep
Towards a people who are unfaithful and pursue other lovers.
I stand amazed
At Your transforming work
In Your rebellious children to make them more like Christ.
I stand amazed
At Your overflowing grace
For You desire mercy, not sacrifice for an undeserving people.
I stand amazed
In Your glorious presence
And will sing of Your greatness
Forever more.
