3 Keys to Mustard Seed Faith | Hestina’s Jewels

Praise The Lord Successful People!

Today’s declaration of the day is this: Keep God first, keep moving forward, and always remember that mustard seed faith, moves mountains!

Faith isn’t something we’re born with. It’s something you work at everyday like a muscle. And when we continue to work the muscle, it grows stronger. The same holds true for faith.

Here are 3 steps you can take to help you grow in faith.

  1. Study God’s Word

The word of God is powerful. It can cut through confusion and deception quickly, allowing you to renew your mind and strengthen your faith.

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. II Timothy 2: 15 (NKJV)

  1. Renew your mind

Have you ever seen a hamster on a wheel? It’s just running and running but not going anywhere. It’s doing the same thing and getting the same result. The mind works like that. Renewing the mind means changing the way you think so that we can determine “what is that good, pleasing and perfect will of God.”

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12: 2 (NKJV)

  1. Faith, trust and consistency are key

God recognizes your faith. God rewards your faith. Amazing things begin to happen—begin to shift—when we exercise our faith. When we begin to activate our “mustard seeds” it builds our confidence and trust in God. Faith releases the resources of heaven into our situation. And when God steps in, everything changes! Trusting God strengthens our faith and our hope in His word.

Make this declaration with me:

I declare that I have faith in God.

I declare that I do ask in faith.

I declare that I will not doubt God.

I declare that my faith is growing.

I declare that I produce the fruit of faith.

I believe in my prayers and know God hears then!

Hello All You Awesome People!

Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Ephesians 3:20 (NLT) 

A good word on this day: God has and WILL continue to do well on your behalf. He continues to protect us, nurture us and assure us even in the midst of life’s trials or hard circumstances. It’s okay to trust Him. In fact, we should trust Him at ALL times.

For the Lord God is our sun and our shield. He gives us grace and glory. The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right. Psalm 84:1 (NLT) 

The Word promises that that we are granted grace and glory–He is our light and shield and promises to withhold no good thing for us. So don’t get discouraged especially when things don’t go the way you want or expect them to.

Remember the Lord grants favor and honor. He does not hold back any blessing from those who live innocently.

Did this message empower and encourage you? I like to think the word of God is a battering ram and a refreshing wind. We serve a 5-star kind of God. Don’t you agree?

Praise the Lord All You Great People!

Today’s Word: Bring Your Request to God!

Don’t be anxious about anything; rather, bring up all of your requests to God in your prayers and petitions, along with giving thanks. Phil. 4:6 (CEB)  

Lord, help us to be anxiety free by bringing every concern to You in prayer. We know that when we do, Your  peace will soothe our hearts and minds. We give You all the Thanks no matter what situation We facing in life. Your already working it out for us. Thank you Lord for answering our prayers.

Dwell in Safety | Hestina’s Jewels

Glory To God All You Great People!!

A beautiful reminder: There is safety when we abide in the presence of God!

The beloved of the Lord shall dwell in safety by Him, Who shelters him all the daylong. Deuteronomy 33:12 (NKJV)

 I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. Psalm 61:4 (NKJV)

Gems, we can trust in the shelter of the Almighty’s wings. We are His beloved and because of this we can dwell in safety. We can feel safe when life tosses us to and fro. We can feel safe even when it feels like things are falling apart. Why? Because His Spirit of Truth is living in us – guiding and protecting us – as we live our life in tandem with the Word.

Pray with me: 

Lord, we are seeking your guidance and your protection. Instruct us in your ways. Teach us the way to go. Order our steps Gracious God that we may walk therein. Let your wisdom lead us and your protection keep us. Preserve our hearts and lives from evil, Sweet Lord and preserve our souls. In the matchless name of Jesus, we pray…amen.

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.” Psalms 32:8 (NKJV)

The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in From this time forth, and even forevermore.” Psalms 121:7-8 (NKJV)

Praise The Lord For Guidance And Protection You!!

Created to Praise | Hestina’s Jewels

Praise The Lord all you people!!!

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).

Today, I encourage you to have an attitude of Praise in your own private prayer time and throughout your day, by realizing that you were created to Praise the Lord. Every time you wake up and breathe you should begin to glorify Him.

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!

Blessing & Love From My Heart To Yours!
