Rise Up Children of God

No Matter how bad things look in your life right now, God can and will make a way for you.

Psalm 23:4
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

Life can throw a lot at you sometimes that it is easy to get discouraged or feel like everything is caving in on you. This Psalm is used a lot when people are dying physically but is not often referenced otherwise. But when we are under the worst of circumstances it can feel like we are walking in the valley of the shadow of death.

The most important word in this scripture is “Through”. God is with us as we walk through these situations that seem to surround us but we are not supposed to stay there. The Truth is we are not supposed to be Under Any Circumstances! If you have accepted Jesus as your Savior, you are an overcomer! God will bring you out of what seems like the worse situation victoriously if you keep your focus on Him and His Word. Satan will use every opportunity to bring you down if he can but you can use that same opportunity to tell him where he belongs…under your feet! (Romans 16:20)

When you are feeling down or overwhelmed, the best medicine is the Word. Faith comes by hearing the Word so build up your faith by immersing yourself in the Word. (Romans 10:17) Listen to teachings, read the Word out loud and get prayer backup! Do not settle for anything less then what God ordained you to have. Hold on to His promises and don’t give up and you will see Victory. We have to remind ourselves and the Devil sometimes of who God made us to be.


How Do I Know God Really Loves Me?

Because He says so in His Word!  Do you know that God holds his Word higher than his own name? (Psalm 138:2)  People will always disappoint you but God never will.  It is impossible for God to lie.  (Numbers 23:19)  When God says he loves you or promises you something, you have no reason to doubt it.  God loved you so much that he gave His own Son, Jesus, just so you could spend eternal life with him in Heaven and escape the torments of hell!  (John 3:16)

He is not like our earthly fathers who can never fulfill our full expectations as humans but He is a Heavenly father who loves you UNCONDITIONALLY.  We live in a conditional world where many do not even know how to love someone unconditionally.  Parents leave their children to follow their own selfish gain, husbands/wives flee their marriages when things get tough in order to find their own happiness.

Unconditional Love means he loves you no matter what and He will never leave you or forsake you. (Hebrews 13:5)  He loves us so much that He will not to even violate our own will.  We have the option to choose Him or not to choose Him and spend eternity in Hell.  He will continually reach His hand out to you up to the very last moment in hope that you will choose Him….
