When you are stressed out, you’ve taken on responsibilities of things you don’t have the power to carry. Jesus is not surprised by your stress, anxiety, and exhaustion. He instead invites you to walk with Him so He can give you the peace you are seeking.
“True Bravery isn’t feeling no fear- it’s being afraid and moving forward anyway.” Hard times unlock the doors to places you could not get into any other way. It is in the waiting that God does his greatest work. I can boldly confess that because it is where I am at today. It is when we find joy in the waiting being confident that He will do it that, our Heavenly Father begins to create new things in our lives.
trusting God completely, you’re no longer at the mercy of circumstances, other people, or your own emotions and limitations. It’s all about following God’s leading, standing on His Word, and then resting + trusting Him to work on your behalf.
This has been a desert season; yet, I’ve learned that God often speaks clearly in the valley. Every time I neglect the simple yet profound truths of who God is, I choose to forget that God is on the throne, He is in control and that there are far greater things ahead than those that I leave behind.
How you start your day will determine how it is going to be. I wonder how many of us place the same amount of effort and excitement to enriching our purpose and mapping out our future than we do to predicting the outcome of college basketball.
Don’t let yesterday’s pain keep you from the bright future the Lord has designed for you. Your happiness does not rely on your circumstances changing, but on you changing how you see your circumstances.
Be Confident in knowing who God is and allow Him to move in your life!
Fear originates itself in self-centeredness.
Confidence and Boldness is found when we lose ourselves in Christ.
Maybe the business deal you are waiting for hasn’t gone through, or the opportunity you have been praying for is not here yet, or even the right person hasn’t come into your life however, don’t start looking to the left or to the right, look ahead! What is ahead of you is greater than what is behind you. God does not want to just meet your needs or give you the desires of your heart; He wants to fill your storehouse with exceedingly, abundantly type of blessings that surpass all the you can ask, think or imagine!
Your perception and interpretation dictates the outcome of the situation. It doesn’t matter nearly as much where the pressure comes from as it does what you do with it, which will determine what it produces in your life.
What is happening around you is really what God is doing in you.
Only God can show you how to convert the pressure into something glorious. You may have been here before and what you are facing seems far more difficult than the past but you and I serve a faithful and never changing God who is able to deliver is from anything.
Often, we settle for dreams and visions that are far less than those that God has for us.
When you know God has promised you greater things, you don’t wait for a sign to appear before you respond.
Imperfect people are vital to the cause of Christ, not because of any deficiency in God but because God’s perfect choices aren’t based upon worldly criteria.
Our daily challenge is to synchronize our faith with God’s schedule. Destiny is not a drive thru, where you can order _____________ and expect to receive it five minutes later. I have learned that everything God will reveal in your life will be done in stages. In the bible, our ability to exercise our faith is illustrated by sowing seeds and reaping a harvest in due time.
Before you sow a seed, you need to plow the ground first to make sure that the soil is ready for the scattering stage. With time as you continue to take care of the seed, the sprouting stage will take place and you will be ready to harvest the grain. I know what you must be thinking, “Ok Dani, enough with all this agricultural talk. How can I apply this principle to my own life”?
The real question is: How do you relate with impatience when God’s schedule is not synchronized with yours?
