Shut The Door!
 
For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
                                                     Jeremiah 29:11 NLT
 
            Our greatest struggles and challenges in life stem from the fact that our thoughts are not His thoughts. How we process the things that we are faced with in day to day and the attitude with which we choose to respond is determined by the information that we...

My covenant I will not break,
         Nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips.
                               Psalms 89:34 NKJV
 
Every word of promise from His lips is eternal. Every word He has spoken over you and into your life will not be altered, abandoned or diminished. It is not over and your life is not over. If the Lord has to resurrect your life from the ashes of what is left over; He will do just that.
God is not man...

Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour.
                    Withstand him; be firm in faith [against his onset--rooted, established, strong, immovable, and determined], knowing that the same (identical) sufferings are appointed to your brotherhood (the whole body of Christians) throughout the world.
             And after you have suffered a...

“ Do not remember the former things,
      Nor consider the things of old.
Isaiah 49:23 NKJV
 
      Past experiences are forever embedded into our memories when they are associated with our senses. A touch, a taste, a smell, a sound or a visual; almost immediately take us back to a time or an experience that stir a craving or taste for yesterday. These stirrings are not always associated with appetites, lusts or passions but in most cases they are.
     The...

                                              Isaiah 49:23 NLT

May the praise of God be in their mouths
       and a double-edged sword in their hands,
                                                Psalm 149:6 NIV
 
          Praise in our mouth and a sword in our hands. One appears to be contradictory in comparison to the other. One is an instrument that magnifies and exalts the name of our God and the other is an instrument of war. In all actuality, they both do the same. In the natural the double-edged sword is a very deadly weapon....

The LORD gives strength to his people;
       the LORD blesses his people with peace.
                                       Psalm 29:11 NIV
 
          They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.
          The LORD is our light and our salvation; Whom shall we fear? The LORD is the strength of our life; Of whom shall we be afraid? For in the time...

But the Lord watches over those who fear him, those who rely on his unfailing love.
He rescues them from death and keeps them alive in times of famine.
                                                    Psalms 33:18 & 19 NLT
          It is awesome to know we have His attention. No matter how extreme the challenges of the day; He is our very present help and His unfailing love will not let us down.
          There is nothing that catches the Lord off guard and He is attentative to every...

I sought the LORD, and he answered me;
      he delivered me from all my fears.
                                       Psalm 34:4 NIV
       Our fears stem from the unknown and we dread the inevitable. Our fears are dispelled in the light of truth and the inevitable becomes a steppingstone when we look beyond it to see tomorrow.
       This psalm of David is the key to releasing us from the shackles of our fears. Our fears are diminished by our seeking the Lord. When we seek Him, He answers....

He sent forth his word and healed them;
                                                Psalm 107:20a NIV
 
        Health and healing is more than just how we feel or look. Many feel fine but are one step away from death. There are those that look well but inside, all is not as it should be. Healing needs to go deeper than the scars left behind by wounds from times past. More times than many, the healing that is needed cannot be brought about by conventional medical means....

He remembers his covenant forever,
       the word he commanded, for a thousand generations,
                                                          Psalm 105:8 NIV
 
Our hope, confidence and trust find its strength in the credibility, integrity and reliability of that which we expect to deliver. Whether it is a tool, medication or person. We become disappointed and loose confidence in those or those things that do not deliver what was promised.
Our level of confidence in a person or things is also determined by time...

So do not fear, for I am with you;
       do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
       I will strengthen you and help you;
       I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
                                                Isaiah 41:10 NIV
 
 
If we would ask the question, why did the Lord speak this? The answer I believe would be that it was because the children of God had lost hope and the circumstances that encompassed them was overwhelming and they did not...

The terror you inspire
       and the pride of your heart have deceived you,
    you who live in the clefts of the rocks,
          who occupy the heights of the hill.
    Though you build your nest as high as the eagle's,
       from there I will bring you down,"
          declares the LORD.
                                      Jeremiah 49:16 NIV
 
 
 Our enemy takes on the appearance of being unstoppable and impossible to defeat. Do not let this be your assessment of the enemy....

Then I, myself, will be a protective wall of fire around Jerusalem, says the Lord. And I will be the glory inside the city!’”
     … For he said, “Anyone who harms you harms my most precious possession.
                                                Zechariah 2:5 & 8 NLT
 
 
You are the apple of His eye. You are the Lords most precious possession for which He gave His life and shed His blood. There is no need to fear or fret. The Lord God Eternal and...

             So, friends, take a firm stand, feet on the ground and head high. Keep a tight grip on what you were taught, whether in personal conversation or by our letter. May Jesus himself and God our Father, who reached out in love and surprised you with gifts of unending help and confidence, put a fresh heart in you, invigorate your work, enliven your speech.
                                                2 Thessalonians 2:15-17 Message Bible.
