You Are More Than Your Mistakes

Blessings All You Wonderful People!

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control] – 2 Timothy 1:7 (AMP)

Can I share something with you? I mean really be honest? Listen very carefully: you are more than your mistakes!

You may have messed up more times than you can count, we all have. But if the only smart decision you ever made was to give your life to the Lord, you are doing great!

You were smart enough to make such a life-changing decision. Now, I want you to focus–feed your faith by focusing on what is good and not the bad. Take time to look at and celebrate what you’ve done right. Don’t just focus on how you’ve stumbled. Let joy rise in your heart. Learning to be who God called you to be is a lifelong process. Be encouraged. You are still evolving, growing and learning.

Say this with me…

I gave my life to the LORD and that makes me one smart person!

I am forgiven for every wrong decision I’ve made.

I receive God’s love, His mercy and His grace.

I am moving forward and I am made stronger and wiser from every wrong decision.

God is increasing me in wisdom and in stature.

I am increasing in favor with God and with man.

I declare and decree I have soundness of mind and the ability to make sound decisions, not fear-based, emotional, or impulsive decisions. But sound decisions that please God.

I’m not stupid! I’m not crazy! I’m not an underachiever!

I’m an overcomer through Jesus Christ!

I love God’s word and I declare I walk in His wisdom and His grace! Glory to God!

Blessings & Love from my heart to yours,

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!!

Resistance is Power| Hestina’s Jewels

Praise the Lord All You Wonderful People!

 Today’s Word  :SUBMIT YOURSELF TO GOD !!

(James 4:7-8)  says Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you (8) Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. 

James gives us Three steps for obtaining ‘”more grace “, verses 7-8.  

Submit yourself to God.

Resist the devil in whatever form he appears.

Come near to God. 

Thank God for his gift of Grace  Ep.3:7 Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power.

The grace of God, given to each believer to accomplish HIS will, is an energizing strength that flows from the risen Christ and operates through the Holy Spirit dwelling in the believer.  

Praise the Lord we can resist the devil by standing firm in faith.

1Peter 5:9 says Resist him, standing firm in the faith.

Ephesians 4:27 tells us Neither give place to the devil.

Do not give him a place in your life, resist him and stand firm in faith.

Remember You Have God’s Grace To Stand Firm In Faith!

Blessing & Love From My Heart To Yours💚💙💚
