Restoring all things


I was watching television and I saw mayhem across the United States of America.  Chaos and destruction everywhere in reaction to the soul of yet another black man taken at the prime of his life. This lockdown has provided an opportunity for some people to reflect and put a certain perspective into reality. It could be good or bad depending on whose side you are on. God wants us to be on His side. Life after COVID-19 lockdown for Christians will be a victorious one. We are about turning the page, the siege is over! Jn 10:10 After the destruction, there is a recovery. There is a new horizon, there is a fresh start. Just like the day of Pentecost, expect the power of the Holy Spirit to take control. God has invested so much in us that He expects us to take control by praying and commanding the work of His hands and deploying the power of the Holy Spirit already inside of us. There is still fear and apprehension everywhere because of the increase of the number of people infected by a so-called coronavirus. We hereby command the unconditional release of those appointed to die by the blood of Jesus. May the Lord show mercy to those trapped by fear.
Brethren, we must put our trust the Lord for the benefits of a new horizon:
He will give you the desires of your heart according to Psalms 37:3-5 Trust in the Lord, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. 4 Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart 5 Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass.
*Trusting in the Lord brings greater happiness and joy in life –Proverbs 16:20 He who heeds the word wisely will find good, And whoever trusts in the Lord, happy is he.
*Our mind stays in peace when we stay focused on the Lord. Isa 26:3 You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on you because he trusts in You.
*Fruitful in all times, not anxious in the year of drought or famine according to Jeremiah 17:5-8  Thus says the LORD: “Cursed is the man who trusts in man And makes flesh his strength, Whose heart departs from the LORD. 6 For he shall be like a shrub in the desert, And shall not see when good comes, But shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, In a salt land which is not inhabited. 7 “Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, And whose hope is the LORD. 8 For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, Which spreads out its roots by the river, And will not fear when heat comes; But its leaf will be green, And will not be anxious in the year of drought, Nor will cease from yielding fruit. NKJV
*Those who trust in the Lord will be delivered from wicked schemes and plans of evil people Ps 37:39-40  But the salvation of the righteous is from the LORD; He is their strength in the time of trouble. 40 And the LORD shall help them and deliver them; He shall deliver them from the wicked, And save them Because they trust in Him. NKJV 
 *The mercy of the Lord surrounds those who trust in Him –Psalm 32:10-11 Many sorrows shall be to the wicked; But he who trusts in the Lord, mercy shall surround him. 11 Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous; And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!

*Those who trust in the Lord will be prospered Prov 28:25, 26 He who is of a proud heart stirs up strife, But he who trusts in the Lord will be prospered.

*Those who trust in the Lord will be safe and secure –Proverbs 29:25 The fear of man brings a snare, But whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe.

A new Horizon is here. Trust in the Lord and claim all His benefits.
The Lord is kind and merciful, slow to get angry, full of unfailing love. The Lord is good to everyone. He showers compassion for all his creation. All of your works will thank you, Lord, and your faithful followers will bless you. They will talk together about the glory of your kingdom; they will celebrate examples of your power. . . . For your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. You rule generation after generation. Psalm 145:8-11, 13   He is compassionate (“to all his creation”). He is gracious and generous, loving and all-powerful, righteous, watchful, protective, near to us, great and good, and ever faithful. 

Think of the Savior: Jesus is the Bread of Life, the Light of the World, our Counselor, our Good Shepherd. Prayerfully studying and meditating on the character traits and names of God is one of the most faith-building, encouraging things you can do for your spiritual life. It will dispel your anxiety and boost your faith. It will enable you to trust God more. Knowing the true character of God will renew and transform your mind with the truth, dissolve doubt, and breathe life into your soul. Saying aloud the attributes of the Lord and thinking about how you’ve experienced different aspects of his character can be a powerful act of worship. 

Dear Father, as we enter the month of June, we thank you for preserving our lives, and for the Grace and Blessing you pour out continually upon us. We choose to look with our eyes of faith past our present circumstances and happenings around us to the good future you have pre-arranged for us, our hope is not misplaced because we rely on and trust in you for you are El Shaddai, the Almighty One, the All-sufficient God. El Elyon, The most sovereign.

The Grace of the ALL MIGHTY & ALL SUFFICIENT GOD will work mightily in your life. The mercies of God will speak for you. His goodness shall be revealed in your most difficult situations in Jesus’ name.
