When someone irritates me.

Image
Ephesians 4: 31Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice.”
I am a very straight forward person. A spade is a spade. That kind of straight and please do not lie to me. I get super angry. Now when it comes to someone that truly irritates me I have no filters. The words "pop out" and I say what I feel and think. 
Yes, I know forgive this person and be kind, understanding and compassionate. My heart tells me to act in this way but my brain doesn't work like that. Reaching out is difficult and I struggle with to be a friendly person. Especially when I feel this person is defiant.  
Of course, I am working at being kinder and reaching out but it's very difficult for me. I forgive this person on a regular basis because I feel they manipulate the system to get their way. In Ephesians 4 verse 32 I am reminded to forgive as God has forgiven me. It takes me a while to get that forgiving in place.
It's beyond my understand…

The LORD my God goes with me!

Deuteronomy 31: 6 NIV “Be strong and courageous, Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Lord, my mouth is filled with your praise, and with your glory all the day. Lord, I will hope continually and will praise you yet more and more. As for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Lord God my refuge, that I will tell of all your works.
As I focus my thoughts on the LORD, I know that God is walking with me today. Psalm 27 verse 13 says "I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living." Thank YOU, LORD, for this verse. I believe that You are taking me forward. I just don't always know the process but I am walking this road with YOU, step by step, little by little. Psalms 27 verse 14 reminds me "Wait for the LORD, be strong, and let your heart take courage wait for the Lord!" You are awesome my King and my God.
Today I want to remind you of P…

Rekindle your desire – seeking God!

Image
Psalm 119: 2 ESV
“Blessed are those who keep his testimonies, who seek him with their whole heart.”
We are reminded to love the LORD our God with all our heart and with all our soul and with all our might [Deuteronomy 6: 5]. Sometimes we need to rekindle our desires for God, in seeking Him. I know I am facing a situation and I cannot trust people, they go out of their way to hurt me. I can only trust in the Lord “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.” [Proverbs 3: 5].
Facing difficult situations and circumstance causes me to look for the LORD, I am constantly calling out to Him and I know that He is true to His word. “You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.” [Jeremiah 29: 13].
My question is do I truly love the LORD with all my heart? How will I gauge my love for the LORD? I think the LORD knows that I love Him with all my heart. I seek Him constantly, I fear that I am a disappointment to Him. I think there are times…

LORD, I am asking for a Bigger Dream

Image
Genesis 37: 9 ESV “Then he dreamed another dream and told it to his brothers and said, “Behold, I have dreamed another dream. Behold, the sun, the moon, and eleven stars were bowing down to me.””
Today, I want to ask the LORD, my God to show me the way forward. I also want to ask HIM for a vision for my own life. I also feel I want to ask God for a bigger dream. When reading about Joseph I came to realise that he dreamed a dream and then another dream only bigger.
What are my dreams currently? Well, I wrote Daily Devotional Ebenezer and I am pushing for sales. Something that weighed heavy on my heart. I also started baking and I have become quite good but I am not an expert yet.

I would like to start up my own company but I feel I need wisdom, understanding and insight. I also want guidance and help. God placed Joseph in difficult positions and his character was tested on numerous occasions. Joseph stood the tests and came out on the other side a better person.

Abba Father, behold,…

When you face impossible odds

Image
Genesis 18: 14 ESV
“Is anything too hard for the LORD? At the appointed time I will return to you, about this time next year, and Sarah shall have a son.”
I feel like I am facing impossible odds right now. I am a contract worker and I would like to work but the odds are stacked against me. Today, I heard that there might be a possibility to extend my contract. It has been my prayer for as long as I have been freelancing here that the Lord is in control and I will work here as long as He has decided.
I feel that because I believe in the Lord, Jesus Christ, I can ask Him to stand in the gap for me. I believe that I am going to continue with my contract and when the time is right I will be where the Lord, Jesus Christ wants me.
Are you facing impossible odds right now? Do you feel your finances are not making it? Are you worried about your health?  What about your relationships? Do you feel things aren't going to work out?
This challenge of not working I am facing right now, I am givin…

Jeremiah 29: 11 ESV “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

I hear people saying I just need to win the “jackpot” I will be set for life, it’s just one little thing. Be honest the only one little thing we truly need is the Word (Bible) and a living relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. As I think about this scripture I want to focus on the fact that the LORD declares, He has plans for my welfare and not for evil, that He has a future and hope in place for me. I know I need to stand on His Word and I do. I will not fear because fear comes from the devil.
I accept and agree with this declaration today God LORD, You declared that YOU have plans for my welfare and not for evil. I have a future and a hope. Now please show me the way forward in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ. Amen THE Word for Today:
Jeremiah 29 : 12 – 13 , “Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will see…

Lord, Jesus my Hope and Confidence is in YOU.

Lamentations 3: 24 ESV
“The LORD is my portion, says my soul, therefore I will hope in HIM.”
Good morning, let’s raise up a Hallelujah this morning and sing praise to the LORD for He is our portion. We hope in Him. Let’s praise the LORD our God. LORD, You gives us wisdom and insight and understanding. LORD, You are our portion and You show us the way. LORD, I want to raise up a Hallelujah this morning to praise YOU. You are my wisdom and my righteousness; I want to glory in YOU LORD.
LORD this morning I want to raise up Hallelujah to YOU. Hallelujah, You are my God, You are my Alpha and Omega. LORD my soul cries out to YOU today, I praise You. I want to worship You, Holy Spirit gives me the necessary words to praise God. I love You, Lord Jesus. Thank You, Lord, for giving me the mind of Christ.
As John says “If God is all I have, I have all I need.” LORD, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah I raise my praise to YOU this morning. You are my Savior and I want to confirm and confess that my H…
