Hello there my fellow Apostolic Pentecostals and Christians! I wanted to share the words the Lord put on my heart Wednesday night about two weeks ago, they were: “In the midst of” they swelled on my heart the whole night and they haven’t left me since. I wanted to share with you that no matter what you are going through today he is there in the Midst of it all!
In the midst of setbacks;
Romans 5:3-5 (NKJV)
3 And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance;
4 and perseverance, character; and character, hope.
5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
In the midst of attacks by people around you;
Genesis 50:20 (NKJV)
20 But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive.
Romans 8:31 (NKJV)
31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
Romans 12:19 (NKJV) 19 Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord.
In the midst of heartache;
Psalms 34:17-20 (NKJV)
17 The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, And delivers them out of all their troubles. 18 The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit.
19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the Lord delivers him out of them all.
20 He guards all his bones; Not one of them is broken.
In the midst of really hard days of being a momma;
Galatians 6:9 (NKJV) 9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.
John 11:25 (NKJV) 25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.
2 Peter 3:9 (NKJV)
9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is long suffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
In the midst of sadness and hopelessness;
2 Corinthians 4:9 (NKJV) 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed—
Proverbs 12:25 (NKJV) 25 Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, But a good word makes it glad.
In the midst of frustration and anger;
Proverbs 29:11 (NKJV) 11 A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back.
Psalms 4:4 (NKJV) 4 Be angry, and do not sin. Meditate within your heart on your bed, and be still. Selah
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NKJV) ; 16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
*I wanted to include this as a declaration over our lives The Race of Faith and The Discipline of God*
Hebrews 12:1-3 (NKJV)
The Race of Faith
12 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
The Discipline of God
3 For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls.
Whatever you are going through today, you can fill in the blank as the Lord knows what it is you are going through please give it to him today! Please don’t live in shame, fear, worry, or sadness! HE REALLY IS WITH YOU! HE is for YOU! and so NOTHING CAN BE AGAINST YOU!
I pray this helped you in any way! I pray this be a blessing to you in Jesus Christ’s name! Bless your PRECIOUS people today LORD in JESUS CHRIST’S NAME!!
Good morning my fellow Apostolic’s and Christians! I hope you are blessed and highly favored today of the Lord! and I pray whoever reads this is covered by your precious spirit today Jesus!
As Apostolic Pentecostals, we have authority in him! This message was inspired by what my pastor was preaching on Wednesday night yesterday.
He was saying that as Christians we all have a gift given to us by God, and are we using it for his glory and his purpose? What is it that you have yet to surrender or to use that God has given you?
He was saying as Christians we have always been on the defensive instead of the offensive when it comes to the world and people around us.
But it’s time we stand up in the offensive for once! We do not have to be afraid!
Deuteronomy 1:8 says: 8 See, I have set the land before you; go in and possess the land which the Lord [a]swore to your fathers—to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob—to give to them and their descendants after them.’ (NKJV).
What are you holding back that God has given you as a gift?
God has placed a gift in every single one of us! Are we using it accordingly, or at all?
The bible says in Romans 11:29 “For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance” meaning that he has put it inside of you! he cannot take it away from you, you will always have it in you!
The question is: Will you use it for him? or will you use it to advance your own kingdom?
What will he say on that appointed day, will he say Matthew 25:21 21 His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’ (NKJV).
Whether you have five talents or one use and re-dedicate your gifts he has given you today for his glory!
Lord I pray whoever is reading this presents their gifts to you, I pray that they ask you how to use them for you are the only one that can guide us on how to use them, for you gave them to us!
