He's the Hero

Why are you cast down, O my soul? 
And why are you disquieted within me? 
Hope in God; 
For I shall yet praise Him, 
The help of my countenance and my God. 
Psalm 42:11 

When you find yourself with limited options and the enemy at your doorstep, I want to encourage you that God who chose you has allowed this situation that He may show Himself the hero of your story. You’re not in control or in charge.

When the enemy comes in like a flood, 
The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him. 
Isaiah 59:19b 

You might have woken up today with sickness, a bad report, an eviction notice, penalties and interest owing to a company, credit card or even the government. But guess what? God sees your diligence and hard work with a strategy. Don’t be discouraged. He is still writing and hasn’t skipped a chapter or failed to write one. The Lord has you in mind with every pen stroke. You will have the victory!

If God is for us, who can be against us? 
Romans 8:31b 

For you know every great tale has a hero and a villain with many subplots. Take heart that the Creator of the Universe who is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob knows full well where you are and how long it will take you to come out from under the situation. Be patient. Trust in Him and His plan. He will not leave you abandoned or in ruins.

Teach me Your way, O Lord, 
And lead me in a smooth path, because of my enemies. 

I would have lost heart, unless I had believed 
That I would see the goodness of the Lord 
In the land of the living. 

Wait on the Lord; 
Be of good courage, 
And He shall strengthen your heart; 
Wait, I say, on the Lord!
Psalm 27:11, 13-14 

 When surrendered, and following Christ, we’re led to do His will and guided each step of the way.


Bring What You Have to The Cross

After my quiet time with the Lord and recalling my journey of brokenness and as a sinner to being whole in Christ there came this short but powerful message with urgency to return home and bring what you have to the cross.

Bring whatever you have to the Lord. Bring it to the cross whether it be pain, discouragement, suffering, sickness, anguish, or disagreements. I’m not sure how you’ve labeled it. Maybe doubts. But I want you to bring it to the cross. Open up your hands and give it to the Lord.

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly 
above all that we ask or think, 
according to the power that works in us. 
Ephesians 3:20

That is the Holy Spirit that works in us. I want you to believe, and trust, and know the Truth. He that worketh in you is the Holy Spirit. He’s going to restore, deliver and save. He’s going to make the barren places thrive and flourish. You are going to be renewed and regenerated, and this is the working of the Holy Spirit. Because this is the will of the Lord, for those that are His to return and to serve Him, and Him alone. He is worthy of such service. I say He is worthy of such service. He has done so much for us, in us, and through us.

Bring what’s in your hand to the cross.

I say He is mighty to save.

The Lord is mighty to save.

Bring what you have to the cross.

I'm Minister Rosemarie reaching up to heaven for what you need, want and desire.


His Promise Will Stand Forever

In our life's struggles and winter seasons -- in dormancy or the testing of faith -- we find that He is ever-present, regardless.

Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?

If I ascend to heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in Sheol (the nether world, the place of the
dead), behold, You are there.

If I take the wings of the dawn,
If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,

Even there Your hand will lead me,
And Your right hand will take hold of me.

If I say, “Surely the darkness will cover me,
And the night will be the only light around me,”

Even the darkness is not dark to You and conceals nothing from You,
But the night shines as bright as the day;
Darkness and light are alike to You
Psalm 139

And if we look more closely, we acknowledge as it is written,

"Yet He did not leave Himself without some witness [as evidence of Himself],
in that He kept constantly doing good things and showing you kindness,
and giving you rains from heaven and productive seasons,
filling your hearts with food and happiness.”
Acts 14:17

While the sun rose with quietness all around me, I studied and wrote: "If all else fails, my promise will stand forever." Salvation. Jesus saves!

For as many as are the promises of God, in Christ they are [all answered] “Yes.”
So through Him we say our “Amen” to the glory of God.
2 Corinthians 1:20

While we sit in despair with moaning and complaining, we ought to have the heart cry for the Salvation of our loved ones, our neighbors, friends, and strangers who are soon to be acquaintances.

The Lord does not delay [as though He were unable to act] and is not slow about His promise, 
as some count slowness, but is [extraordinarily] patient toward you, 
not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. 
2 Peter 3:9

The Lord show His mercy and great love for all. He is mighty to save!

This message many will resist, but I thank God for the Spirit of Truth that persists that we are to remain hopeful in Salvation. It is not for us to know why or why not our prayers are unanswered or our requests have not manifested. Believer, bow before the Lord and receive His strength for the day. You are precious in His sight. Press on and trust Him. Keep your eyes on the Lord for circumstances do not persuade us that our faith should be in jeopardy regarding a miracle or sign to come. God is sovereign, and His ways are higher than our ways. 

"We are satisfied with your answer. We want your will over ours. I don't know what you're asking for? I don't know what your intercession is? But I have heard the Word of the Lord, and He says, 'If all else fails, my promise will stand forever."

What A Friend We Have In Jesus


Not sure where you are right now. You could be alone or alone with your thoughts.

Your struggle, weakness or burden can seem heavy, and perhaps unbearable, but walking with the Lord would impart a new perspective on hope even when your circumstances change very little.

Honor God in your everyday. Talk with Him. Give Him more time in your schedule. Soon you may say, "Look what the Lord has done!"

The Lord has done great things for us,
And we are glad.
Psalm 126:3

Many lonely souls are bearing the weight of darkness and hopelessness.

Why are you cast down, O my soul?
And why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God;
For I shall yet praise Him,
The help of my countenance and my God.
Psalm 43:5

A short summer-length post for spiritual nourishment.
