Promises Kept…

1 Chronicles 17:17 (AMP) 17 And yet this was a small thing in Your eyes, O God; for You have spoken of Your servant’s house for a great while to come, and have regarded me according to the estate of a man of high degree, O Lord God!

David had been promised that his sons would reign…that his offspring would reign over God’s kingdom forever.  While I was reading this verse, I could feel the awe that David felt at all the Lord had done for him and was promising to do in the future.  David had been made the king of Israel.  He was a mighty man of valor, strong and courageous.  He had walked with God but had also stumbled and fallen in his life yet he was still humble enough to know where his help came from.

God has promised all His children a variety of things.  He wants us to know that He is ever faithful to us and that we can stand assured that He will not break His promises.  But we must stay humble before Him.  We must always be in awe of Him as our Creator and God.  We should never stop seeking His will for our lives.  For He is the Word…He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.  Only in Him can we find true joy and happiness.  Only in Him can we be assured of an eternal life in His presence.

My prayer is that I am always humble before the Lord…that I never stop seeking His face and will for my life…that my walk with Him is a witness to those around me of His great faithfulness.  How about you?

I pray everyone has a GREAT and BLESSED day.

Praise…Praise…Praise!

Psalm 103:1-2 (AMP) 1 Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul; and all that is [deepest] within me, bless His holy name!  2 Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul, and forget not [one of] all His benefits–
     Does it ever seem to you that you can be going along in your relationship with Christ when suddenly you’re struggling to stand?  Or that instead of walking forward…you’re taking a few steps back, standing still, or slipping and sliding and trying not to fall?  I don’t know about you but I have.
     One thing I have learned is Satan wants us isolated.  He wants us to think that no one else struggles like we do…that there is no point because we just can’t seem to get it right.  But what is he?  As a child might put it – a big fat liar!
     When (not if) this happens, just keep praising the Lord.  Praise Him with everything you have…praise Him no matter the circumstances…praise Him to keep the isolation at bay.  Don’t allow anything to keep His praise from your lips.  Forget not all the things Christ has done for and through you.   Know that as we praise Him, our walk becomes a little surer, a little clearer.  Because no matter where we are, what we are doing, how we feel – Jesus is worthy of ALL our praise!!!
     My prayer is that my praise is never half-hearted…that I praise the Lord continually with every fiber of my being…that I not allow satan to isolate me in a moment of difficulty but that I bless the name of the Lord at all times!  How about you?
I pray everyone has a GREAT and BLESSED day.
