“I do not need to ‘get all good,’ if that were even possible, to have communion with God. His life-giving Spirit gives me life even in my sin. But He opens to me a fuller life, a more useful, renewed life, when I turn away from that sin,
just as God is willing to ‘turn His face away’ from my sins.

The ‘bad’ that is within me, because I’ve embraced it, time and again, does not stop God from abiding and working in me, because He is willing to descend even into our darkest hell to renew us, in His undying faith in us. He is also willing to ‘turn away His face’ from our sins, time and again, continuing to create through us and among us,
so we and other ‘ungodly turn to Him.’

So let me not be discouraged, however ‘bad’ my state of affairs may be at the moment, and embrace the renewal God has on offer. ‘Restore to me the joy of your salvation: establish me with your governing Spirit’.”

In case you’ve forgotten, you are REDEEMED. You are FORGIVEN. You are anointed with the precious hands of Jesus. You are LOVED. Satan has no say and no power over you because God has claimed you and spoken life into your dead soul. You are HIS. Believe it, sweet child of the King. You are not alone and you never will be.

God is never early , God is never late, God is ALWAYS on Time! God’s timing and our timing are different. He sees the big picture, He knows best. God knows the perfect time to bring to us what we need or ask. God’s timing is worth the wait.

Thy will be done. Thy will be done when I place my agenda before Your plan. Thy will be done when my knees tremble and I can’t stand on my own. Thy will be done when the world bursts into flames. Thy will be done when I want anything but Your will to be done. Speak obedience and faith into my heart. Make me praise you in the storm.

…if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

Lord Jesus we pray that You watch over all of the people affected by Trump’s ‘muslim ban’. May you keep them safe from all harm and draw them near to you. Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
