Romans 8:26-27 KJV
Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
1 Thessalonians 5:17 KJV
Pray without ceasing.
world-of-speculation asked: Hey! I'm going through an extremely stressful time because of things such a being heartbroken, having to get surgery on my foot next Tuesday since i both tore a ligament in my foot and fractured it, I can no longer run cross country which I was extremely dedicated too, a rumor ruining friendships, and I'm trying to keep my grades up and I'm nervous about getting into college since my GPA is very low, but my test scores are high. So please pray for all these! I feel very depressed right now
Abba Father, your word says in Philippians 4:6-7 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. I want to say, Lord, my sister in Christ needs your help for the trials she is facing. Let her to know that regardless of the depression she “feels” that she must rejoice evermore (1 Thessalonians 5:16), to pray and give thanks because that is your will in Christ Jesus, God (1 Thessalonians 5:17-18). I want my sister to know to count it all joy when she falls into various trials,3 knowing that the testing of her faith produces patience.4 But let patience have its perfect work, that she may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.(James 1:2-4).
Lord help her to not worry about college for to…Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself…(Matthew 6:34) I rebuke the spirit of depression from my sister in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. Increase her faith, And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.(Romans 8:28). Help her to trust in you with all her heart and to lean not unto her own understanding. In all her ways to acknowledge you, and you shall direct her paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
I want her to also cast her cares upon you because you care for her (1 Peter 5:7) and to cast her burdens upon you and you will sustain her (Psalm 55:22). You heal the brokenhearted and bind up their wounds (Psalm 147:3) and for her to delight in you and you shall give her the desires of her heart (Psalm 37:4). To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: (Ecclesiastes 3:1) and that no matter what she may face, it’s only for a season. I thank you God for everything you’ve done and everything you’re going to do. Praise be to your Holy name!!!! I exalt you Lord, there is none like you!!! Thank you, Jesus!!!! Amen.
Are you struggling with trying to make a dream come to pass? Are you frustrated in a relationship, trying to make someone else change or live right? You may mean well, you may have good goals, but if you are trying to orchestrate things to happen your way, on your timetable, you are only going to frustrate yourself. At some point, you have to turn those circumstances over to God and trust that He has your best interest at heart.
How do you turn things over to God? Start by making the choice and declaring your resolve. Simply say, “Father, I choose to let You be God of this situation. I take my hands off. I trust You.” Then, choose to worship Him. Worship is one of the best ways to set your heart and mind in the right place. You can’t worry and worship at the same time! Worship is a sign that you are trusting God; worry is a sign that you are trying to control things.
Today, take the pressure off yourself and turn things over to God. Give Him control and let Him take your setbacks and turn them into comebacks. Remember, the God who holds the universe holds you in the palm of His hand. Trust Him and let God be God in every area of your life!
Psalm 37:7 KJV
Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
He must become greater, by Always Rooney
John 3:30 KJV
He must increase, but I must decrease.
John 17:17 (317/365) ➾ God's fingerprints
John 17:17 KJV
Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion (Proverbs 28:1, NKJV.)
As a believer in Jesus Christ, you are called to live a bold, confident and overcoming life. You don’t have to live under a burden of fear. You don’t have to live with anxiety. Because of Jesus, fear, worry and uncertainty are beneath you. When you rise up in faith knowing that God is with you and for you, all doubt and fear has to leave your life.
Notice that today’s scripture says that the righteous are as bold as a lion. Righteousness is God’s way of doing things. When you do things His way, when you are submitted to His plan for your life, He promises success. It may not always be the way we had in mind, but ultimately, His plan is to prosper you, not to harm you, to give you a hope and a future!
Today, if you’ve been feeling anxious or fearful, begin to declare God’s truth over your life which will set you free! Declare that you are righteous in Christ Jesus! Declare that you are more than a conqueror! Declare that you are as bold as a lion because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world!
Are you letting your light shine before men? Don’t hide it. Beware of satan trying to blow it out. He wants you to fail. He wants you to fall. He does not want you burning bright. Punch him in the face by letting your light shine brighter than bright. Show Jesus to the world!
Matthew 5:16 KJV
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
“Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!” (Philippians 4:4, NKJ)
When was the last time you had so much joy that you couldn’t contain yourself? Maybe your favorite football team won the big game. Or maybe you received some unexpected, good news. There are many reasons to rejoice in this life, but the scripture tells us to rejoice in the Lord.
To rejoice simply means to express great joy. There are many ways to express your joy in the Lord. You can sing, shout, clap, and one biblical definition is to literally spin around! Notice these are all action words. That means we can choose to take action no matter what our emotions are telling us. We can choose to rejoice in the Lord no matter what’s going on around us. And keep in mind, when you make the choice to rejoice even when you don’t feel like it, you are giving God a sacrifice of praise. That’s something that pleases the Lord. That’s something that opens the door for Him to move on your behalf. When you take a step of faith and choose to rejoice, before long, your feelings will get in line. You’ll feel His joy bubbling out of you like rivers of living water, refreshing you and giving you strength to live in victory in every area of your life.
“No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us” (1 John 4:12, NLT)
If you’re like most, you have photos in your home of the people who mean the most to you. You may enjoy showing these photos to others and reliving the special moments captured. But have you ever thought about having a picture of God in your house? It may not be in a frame on the shelf, but 1 John 4:12 tells us that when we love others, we are creating a picture of God. We are showing others what He looks like because God is love.
Understand today that God wants us to know Him, and He wants to reveal Himself to the world through us. He wants us to display His love and share it with others. First Corinthians 13 tells us what love looks like. Take a few minutes each day and let that scripture sink down into your heart.
Remember, you are never more like God than when you are loving others. Love is the greatest thing. Everything else will fade away, but His love is a picture that will last forever!
standingbytherhododendrons-deac asked: Thank you for using the King James Version! So few people do, and I always see these beautiful pictures with scriptures that I want to reblog but I feel guilty because they aren't the way they should be. I will definitely be reblogging you alot :)
Thank you ma’am! God bless you :)
yeah you, with the burden that feels too heavy to hold and you feel it on your chest, almost as if it’s suffocating you…well it is. Cast your burdens to the Lord and he will sustain you (Psalm 55:22 ), and your cares because he cares for you (1 Peter 5:7). Do you have a secret that only God and the devil know and it’s tearing at you? Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. (James 5:16). If you need to confide, to confess something to someone tell God (1 John 1:9) and if you want you can tell me. I want you to get your healing and for the devil to no longer use your struggles, sins, problems, to torment you. I want you to get your healing.
Love your sister in Christ Jesus our Lord, Jacqueline
If you can’t see the sun you will be impressed with a street light. If you’ve never felt thunder and lightning you’ll be impressed with fireworks. And if you turn your back on the greatness and majesty of God you’ll fall in love with a world of shadows and short-lived pleasures.
