When God says -“NO!” 

Sometimes God says “No” to our dreams and to our plans. When He does, it is not to defeat us or to discourage us. He does it because He has something far better than we could have ever imagined planned for us. 
Do you have some shattered dreams in your life today? Have things not turned out as you thought they would? Is there a measure of bitterness in your heart that you didn’t get your way? Wouldn’t today be a great day to bring those shattered dreams before the Lord and let Him show you how to place those dreams in His hands and get past the pain of God’s “No”? If there are issues that you would like to come and pray to the Lord about today, bring them to the Lord. He can take what you perceive as a broken dream and use it to bless your life and to bring glory and honor to His name.
God bless…

A Difficult Question !!

What do you do when you’ve prayed to God and you don’t like the answer you’ve received? Well, you can get angry but that doesn’t help.  Most of all you can decide to wait on the Lord in faith and hope and in confidence that what doesn’t make sense now will make sense later. As you wait remember that God doesn’t keep time the way we do. God never hurries and there are no deadlines against which He must work.

Waiting is good for the soul, especially if you are waiting on the Lord. As you wait, remember that God has not forgotten you. You are on his mind right now. He sees you in your confusion, your fear, and your distress. Do not despair, but as you wait, rest your weary soul on this mighty promise from God: “They who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31).

Eat First

Yesterday I went to a restaurant and saw there was a WIFI service, so I asked for the password. The waitress told me eat first, so I placed my order. After eating, I asked again for the password, and again she told me eat first. Feeling frustrated, I ordered a black coffee. After coffee, again I asked for the password and she replied again eat first.

Then angrily, I walked to the restaurant manager and asked for the password. He too replied eat first!! I was about to explode in anger, when I finally saw a sign on the wall indicating ” WIFI Password- EAT FIRST”

Friends, similarly in life when we are waiting for an answer from God but we chose to hear what we want too and rest time we shut our ears and don’t listen to what God is trying to say or do in our lives. If you are the one who is seeking the answer, then its time for you too open your hearts and listen to His voice.

God bless…

Waiting on God Increases My Strength

Sometimes I struggle to remember that it’s good to wait for the Lord. It isn’t easy. It goes against the grain of our quick-fix society. But, there’s a hidden benefit in waiting. 

In times of waiting my soul is revived and spirit is renewed. Isaiah wrote, “but those who trust in the LORD will renew their strength; they will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not faint” (Is. 40:31)

Friends, the time will come when those who wait on the Lord will soar.

God bless…
