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.
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)
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.

The dictionary defines refreshing as “having the power to restore freshness, vitality, or energy.”
Isn’t that just what the Father longs to do for us? To bring refreshing to our souls and spirits? To restore our empty wells filling us with energy, wisdom, faith and peace?
Acts 3:20 (ESV) tells us that “Times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that he may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus.”
Refreshing comes from the presence of the Lord! Beautiful ones, in these times of uncertainty, pain, anguish and sheer weariness, we can be find comfort and refreshing in the presence of the Lord. You can trust Him to renew your energy, your hope and your life. Join me in the Spirit of Refreshing Confession:
My spirit has been refreshed.I thank the Lord that all displeasure is dismissed out of my life. I am a person who obeys God’s word.I have confidence in the word of God for my life.I am refreshed, strengthened, and blessed.I have a peaceful spirit.I am united with the Body of Christ. I make a covenant with my family, friends, church, and community to help them reach their destiny in life.I, thank You Sweet Lord for the spirit of refreshing.
“Therefore we are relieved and comforted and encouraged [at the result]. And in addition to our own [personal] consolation, we were especially delighted at the joy of Titus, because you have all set his mind at rest, soothing and refreshing his spirit. 2 Corinthians 7:13 (AMPC)
