DO YOU FEEL LONELY?

Do you feel lonely? Do you feel rejected? Do you feel abandoned? Do you feel brokenhearted? Know today that God has promised that He will never leave you. Your mother, your father, your brother, your sister, you best friend, everyone you hold dear may abandon you, but as long as you have Jesus, you have everything you will ever need!

When everyone in your life has abandoned you, God is still on your side. When your brother abandons you, God is the Friend who is closer than any brother. When the world writes you off, God is still rooting for you. When it seems like life has knocked you down, God is getting ready to elevate you to a place of complete and total blessing. He will never abandon you!

The God we serve is always in control. He is the Living God. He is the awesome God. He is Almighty God. He is the Alpha, the one who has been here since the beginning, and the Omega, the one who will be here until the end of time. He is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. He is and always shall be in control!

Psalms 34:1-5; says, “I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the LORD; the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together. I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. They looked unto him and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed."

David is speaking of praising the LORD.  He has confidence in the LORD. The Lord gives us the ability to give Him praise even when things are going wrong in our lives. We are challenged many times. We also should bless others and show love to them. God's praise should not depart from your mouth no matter what. When we seek the Lord, He will hear us and answer our prayers. It is important to praise God always because whatever you ask of Him, it will come to pass. When you magnify something, you amplify it and make it bigger. Your situation is controlled by your tongue. Remember the tongue has the power to build up or destroy. (Proverbs 18:21). The Lord hears you when you talk to Him; He desires to be your deliverer.
Psalms 34:19; "Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth them out of them all." The Lord is always aware of what is going on in your life.
Psalms 46:1-3; 1. God is our refuge and strenghth, a very present help in trouble. 2. Therefore will we not fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah." He is always with us. But many times we don't realize that. You will magnify the problem instead of turning to God.

In Psalms 54:1-7, we see David describing his situation. We have to allow God to choose how He will deliver us.

There is a choice here. You can complain or let God take control; you can magnify God or go to bed fearful. David appeals to God instead of anyone else. Your appeal should be to God instead of others. God will never fail you as others may fail you. God is your refuge and strength. He wants you to depend on Him. He is omniscient (all knowing); He is omnipresent (everywhere) and omnipotent (all powerful). All who live a Godly life will suffer persecution. But God will be there to deliver and protect us. If you complain, you remain the same; if you pray, you raise.
             
We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak (2 Corinthians 4:13).

Christianity is a life of faith. We believe; therefore, we speak. We speak on the basis of our faith in the Word, and not according to circumstances.

It reminds of the inspiring utterance of Jonah in Jonah 2:1-4. He was in trouble, but read his affirmation of faith: “…I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice. For thou hadst cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas; and the floods compassed me about: all thy billows and thy waves passed over me. Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight; yet I will look again toward thy holy temple.”

Imagine the content of Jonah’s prayer, despite being in such a distressing situation: A great fish had swallowed him up after he disobeyed God’s instruction to go to Nineveh and proclaim His Word. In the belly of the fish, he refused to give up; instead, he prophesied his victory. He declared, “…I will look again toward thy holy temple!”

This is prophetic prayer, and it’s important for God’s people to pray this way, where you speak the will of God into being by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Observe further, Jonah’s prophetic utterances from the belly of the fish: “They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy. But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the Lord” (Jonah 2:8-9).

You may read this and think, “Oh, well, Jonah said this after he came out from the fish’s belly”; no. He spoke those words while still in the belly of the fish. He knew that looking at the circumstances would make him forsake the mercies of God. He had come to realise that God is a deliverer and a rescuer; so he refused to dwell on his predicament. Thus, while still in trouble, he began to thank God for delivering him. He understood the Word of God. He knew that God calls things that be not as though they were (Romans 4:17).

Don’t be moved by the unpleasantness of your present circumstances; don’t observe negative symptoms of lack or ill-health; prophesy your victory. Proclaim the Word. Worship the Lord in the midst of that seemingly hopeless situation. Declare that you have overcome; thank Him for your deliverance and victory.

Make peace with the pain of your past and move on! God has more ahead for you! Worship your way through it!! I will bless The Lord at all times!

There is someone believing God for everything that you are! He will order your footsteps to find each other! The happiest people don’t have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have!

Take all limitations off and let God be BIG in your life! He’s looking for someone to co-partner with in the earth! God is thinking about you right now! No matter who forgot you, He is always mindful of you!

Mountains are moved by faith! Expect God to do the impossible for you! You don’t attract what you want, you attract what you are! Let God do a work in you to do a work through you!

Stop looking for someone to complete you and look for someone to completely accept you “as is”! Others may have abandoned you, but know that The Lord will never leave or forsake you!!
Psalm 27:1-3;The LORD [is] my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD [is] the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? 2 When the wicked, [even] mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. 3 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this [will] I [be] confident.

Psalm 91:2; I will say of the LORD, [He is] my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

Romans 4:17; (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, [even] God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.

Mark 11:23; For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. —Psalm 91:11. The angels of God are nearer than you may think. They are all around us all the time, taking care of us and ministering to us, even when we are not aware of their presence. That is fine with them, because essentially they are God's secret agents, doing His bidding and the work He has called them to do. Many times, they have intervened in our lives and we didn't even know they were doing so.

According Psalm 91 and other passages of Scripture, angels are actively involved in the life of the Christian. Hebrews 1:14 says that they are ministering spirits, sent forth to minister to those who will inherit salvation. Hebrews 13:2 tells us not to be forgetful to entertain strangers, for in doing so, some have entertained angels without even knowing it. There are so many stories in the Bible of angels who delivered the people of God, such as Daniel from the lion's den and Peter from prison.

But as wonderful as the promise of angelic involvement in our lives is, we must first recognize what the conditions are for this promise to be activated in our lives: "For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways". Recognize the fact that the phrase "to keep you in all your ways" is not referring to whatever path you choose, but to God's ways. There is a difference between trusting the Lord and testing Him by taking unnecessary chances with your life or even endangering your spiritual safety by doing stupid things and expecting God to bail you out. God will keep you in all your ways—but your ways must be His ways.

Some Christians try to make God responsible for what actually is their responsibility. Often times, when something unpleasant happens, they’d conclude, “It’s the will of God; otherwise, why did He let it happen?” What such people need to realise is that the authority to change things on earth, and make our lives as beautiful as we desire, has been given to us. You can make your life glorious by living out God’s Word.

In Matthew 17:20, the Lord Jesus was emphatic when He said, “...verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.” He makes it clear that you can create your victorious life by acting your faith on the Word of God. He already gave you the measure of faith you require to effect the changes you desire.

In Mark 9:23, He said, “...all things are possible to him that believeth.” The question is, do you believe? If you do, then you have before you a life of endless possibilities. Put the Word to work in your life, and you’ll always be victorious. Don’t “wait” for His Word to come to pass in your life; rather, you’re to work the Word.

Philippians 2:12 says, *_“…work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.”_* Work out the Word in your life and make it produce results. Using your faith, you can be what you want to be, change what you want to change, and achieve whatever you want to achieve! Faith is our currency and “power to do” in the Kingdom of God.

God has already given you the dominion and the authority to create your triumphant life, by altering the course of events in your life to conform with His perfect will. Keep living in the Word, and the glory of God will be manifest in all you do.
Mark 11:23 -For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

James 1:22-25 -But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. [23] For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: [24] For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. [25] But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein , he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
As long as there is  God in Heaven, you will never know shame. Your life will always have a meaning. The door of goodness shall not be shut against you. Every satanic power trying to re-design your destiny shall be crushed by heavenly hosts. Every evil arrows thrown against you shall return back to the sender... By the grace of God, your arrival at all places will break barriers, your miracle will break protocols, your testimony shall last forever, you shall be the most preferred anywhere you go. Power to survive every storm of life shall rest upon you and the name of the Lord shall be glorified in your life. The blood will speak for you, the Word will work for you, the Almighty will perfect all that concerns you, you will prosper, the work of your hand will prosper, you will prosper in health, your soul will prosper in the name of Jesus. Whatever trap is set against you, the One that is greater than the greatest will make a way of escape in the name of Jesus!!. The remaining days of this year shall be the season of rest, season of harvest, season of joy, season of peace, season of celebration, season of turn around in the name of Jesus.
