Today, I have one question for you: do you ever want to escape?
I mean really escape. Like you took a good look at all that was on your plate, all that was coming at you, and everything that felt like it was weighing you down and thought to yourself I have got to get out of here!
Yeah, I thought so. Me too. But do you know what I do? I run, fast. I run with all of my might, right into the arms of a loving God. A God who promises never to leave or forsake me at the height of my troubles. And I promise you if He’s that for me, He can be even more for you!
GOD IS our refuge and strength [mighty and impenetrable to temptation], a very present and well-proved help in trouble. Psalm 46:1 (AMP)
God IS a refuge – a safe place – for us to run to with our worries, fears, and emotions. We can trust Him to protect and strengthen us. He never sleeps and He never abandons us. So, the next time you want to escape, I encourage you to run to Him – run into His loving arms and don’t look back.
Did you know integrity is defined as “the quality of being honest, fair and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness; the state of being whole and undivided?”
Are you a person who is fair and honest? A person undivided in their desire to exude strong moral uprightness?
God is looking for persons of integrity. Persons who continually choose to walk before Him in honesty and sincerity with all uprightness. Persons who desire to be complete in Him.
As a child of God, you can be a person who centers righteousness and live a victorious life. People with integrity are lead by the Spirit of God and are a blessing to the people around them. They show up. They lend a helping hand. They’re givers in spirit and in their works.
Persons of integrity aren’t just hearers of God’s Word, they’re doers.
They have the indwelled power of God on the inside of them – emboldening them to speak, lead, and act with confidence. This power is a force that cannot be reckoned with because its source comes from the Father Himself.
If you’re a person of integrity, expect the impossible! Expect God’s Word and promises to be yes, and amen! Expect the actions rooted in honesty, fairness, and sincerity to be seen, heard, and loved by God Almighty!
He knows the plans He has for you. It is prosper you and to give you hope. Praise the Lord!
Heb.13:15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of Praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to his name.
As the author here encourages us to Continually offer up a Sacrifice of Praise to God.” Praise is something that we offer to God sacrificially, not just because we feel like it, but because we believe in Him and Desire to Please Him.
We are to be captivated and filled with the greatness, goodness and grace of God. We should be like a cup: filled to the brim, always spilling over in praises to Him.
Ps.54:6 I will freely sacrifice unto thee: I will Praise thy name, O Lord; for it is good.
Created is defined as: To cause to exist; bring into being.
The definition of praise is to: express, honor, and gratitude to God through worship, words, attitudes, and actions (expressions of love, and appreciation to God).
You can praise God anywhere at anytime! And the more you praise, the more it will be as normal as breathing.
Psalms 150:6 says, let everything that hath breathe Praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.
It’s not enough just to have Praise in your heart; the word says we need to have it in our mouth as well.
I will bless the LORD at all times: his Praise shall continually be in my mouth. Psalms 34:1
My tongue shall speak of God’s righteousness and of His Praise all the day long. Psalm 35:28
Enter into God’s gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with Praise. Psalm 100:4
When you first begin to truly praise God, it may seem awkward to you, but if you keep on Praising, it will soon become a way of life. Praise will cause the glory of God to be manifested in your life. It will cause you to walk in the light of His Countenance.
Psalms 89:15 says; Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance.
So you need to open up your mouth and your heart and do what God has created you to do…PRAISE HIM!
We celebrate all the Women, Mothers and the one who ever was a mother figure in your life. Maybe you were one the motherly figures, godmother, foster parent etc.
Today I encourage you: keep on being an awesome woman and mother! Continue to apply wisdom to your life situations.
Godly wisdom is defined as, “The ability to discern or judge what is true, right; a gift from God to view life from a spiritual perspective; by applying biblical principles in all areas of life.”
I believe that Wisdom and knowledge gives us the ability to make the right choices at the right time to help cope with our everyday life situations and circumstances.
We must always keep in mind that we need inspiration and wisdom and knowledge from heaven!
Pr.4:7 tells us (NKJV) Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
A Woman Of Wisdom
Proverbs 31:26-28 tells us (NKJV)She opens her mouth with wisdom, And on her tongue is the law of kindness.27 She watches over the ways of her household, And does not eat the bread of idleness.28 Her children rise up and call her blessed
In these scriptures we learn that a woman of wisdom takes good care of her children and household by addressing their physical, emotional, social, mental, and spiritual needs.
Things A Woman Of Wisdom Does For Her Household
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom
26 She has the law of kindness on her tongue
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
27 She does not eat the bread of idleness
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed
She loves her children and family dearly and will try to be the best person she can be for their sake.
Today’s Word: Isaiah 43:7 (AMP) Even everyone who is called by My name, whom I have created for My glory, whom I have formed, whom I have made.
God created you to put His goodness and truth, and beauty and wisdom, and justice on display. He made you to magnify His greatness!
Isaiah reminds us that we–you–are created for the glory of God. When we revel in His glory, when we return to Him what is due…
Then shall your light break forth like the morning, and your healing (your restoration and the power of a new life) shall spring forth speedily; your righteousness (your rightness, your justice, and your right relationship with God) shall go before you [conducting you to peace and prosperity], and the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard. Isaiah 58:8 (AMPC)
