Trust God No Matter What!

God is still speaking. Not only in the early morning, but throughout the day, and I am strengthened in His presence. The Spirit of God is revealing with clarity as to why obedience is necessary in the year of 2016 for every Believer, not just a few. I urge you to take notes, for obedience is not to gain status, acquire more assets or to attain a leadership role. No, it’s a time of preparation and to uncover who you really trust. Are you trusting in yourself, spouse, or parent? Are you trusting in your weekly paycheck? Are your hopes hinging on the next political race or presidential campaign?

Last year God drew me closer to Himself as I began my home Bible Study “Renewal” to feed others, and since then I have become more peculiar in forsaking worldly desires. Yet, my desire to know Him more has increased with each revelation and move of the Holy Spirit. Likened to healthy and rewarding relationships, I look forward to spending more time with Him. For in His presence my soul is satisfied, even my body, right down to the marrow of my bones, which is far more desirable than His presents (blessings).

Are you seeking gifts or the Giver? Are you seeking blessings or the Blessor?

Where is your faith, and who will you trust if your presidential candidate doesn’t win? When the government fails you? When your lawyer misrepresents you? When you don’t get the job? When your house is foreclosed? When the retirement is no longer viable or the stock market crashes? When your marriage is crumbling? When your kids are in rebellion? These are not questions to provoke fear Church, but to give you a good poke as the Good Shepherd would to stir up your faith, no matter how strong or weak. Remember, we need only faith as little as a mustard seed to move mountains. Will you trust in chariots and horses or will you trust in the Lord?

Often God speaks in one sentence, but then again sometimes He puts it together like a puzzle—and I have the privilege of placing each piece together until the revelation is evident.

Late Sunday evening while studying, I was compelled to rest my head on my open bible like a pillow and weep. Then I zealously clutched it close to my chest. My heart cry was apparent— in this hour/season I'll need more of His presence and His Word. It also fortifies my stance that I cannot be persuaded to move from here.

"He who abides in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty." Psalm 91:1

If you’re in the secret sacred place with God remain there. If you’re finding your way there please hurry as 2016 is not a year for just getting by and being saved. You need victory! Victory in every area and over ever demon and devil in your life! You need the Holy Spirit! You need daily fellowship with the One True God. This is a time to seek God while He may be found.

Life Application Study Bible: Psalm 20:7 is a psalm of David – a prayer for victory in battle. Such a prayer can help us prepare for any great challenge. David knew that trust should be placed in the Lord more than in human power. As long as there have been armies and weapons, nations have boasted of their power, but such power does not last. Throughout history, empires and kingdoms have risen to great power only to vanish in the dust. David knew that the true might of his nation was not in weaponry but in worship; not in firepower but in God’s power. Because God alone can preserve a nation or an individual, be sure your confidence is in God, who gives eternal victory. Whom do you trust?

We who have been washed in the blood have suffered under the wickedness of darkness and the strategy of the devil for far too long. It’s time to stand for the Lord! Get ready to disengage and disarm the enemy. Prepare for spiritual warfare! As it’s said, “It’s on!”

Though the world gets darker, we the remnant of Christ will become brighter entering our finest hour for Him as we labor in the Kingdom of God. Be counted Christian! Be obedient to the Lord and victory will be yours!

I speak not as myself, but from the office in which I am called to minister, and to offer you a better way with an expected end in an hour of need when the world offers only countless dead ends.

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:11-13
