For Sure

In uncertain times

I am grateful to You, my Abba,

for making my footsteps sure

 

You have planted me

in the sure earth

of Your inheritance for me

 

You have established

Your good plans

for my good

 

You have lead me,

never forsaking Your promises,

and I have followed

 

The surety of You

is all I need

in the uncertain

 

For I am Yours

and You are God

for sure

You will bring them in and plant them on the mountain of Your inheritance— the place, Lord, you made for Your dwelling, the sanctuary, Lord, your hands established.

– Exodus 15:17 (NIV)

 

The Lord directs the steps of the godly.
He delights in every detail of their lives.
Though they stumble, they will never fall,
for the Lord holds them by the hand.

– Psalm 37:23,24 (NLT)

 

I know the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.

– Psalm 16:8 (NLT)

 

The wise counsel God gives when I’m awake
is confirmed by my sleeping heart.
Day and night I’ll stick with God;
I’ve got a good thing going and I’m not letting go.

I’m happy from the inside out,
and from the outside in, I’m firmly formed.
You canceled my ticket to hell—
that’s not my destination!

– Psalm 16:7-10 (MSG)

Thrive!

Friend

we are not meant

to just get through it

 

to suck it up until it’s over

 

We are not called to

grit our teeth

and just endure until it’s done

 

No

 

We are meant to THRIVE

to thrive!

 

And believe it or not

this means

 

whatever the circumstances

 

Because no matter what’s going on

on the outside

 

Your spirit can truly thrive

and grow

and burst light!

 

When you came to know Jesus

you were placed positionally

next to Him on His throne in heaven

 

Your inheritance was made secure

your spirit set free

 

And there are many things earthly

that want to weigh your free spirit down

 

But because of your position on high

you don’t have to be weighted

 

You can soar!

 

You can THRIVE

because of whose you are

Even though you intended to harm me, God intended it only for good, and through me, He preserved the lives of countless people, as He is still doing today.

 – Genesis 50:20 (VOICE)

 

But God, with the unfathomable richness of His love and mercy focused on us, united us with the Anointed One and infused our lifeless souls with life—even though we were buried under mountains of sin—and saved us by His grace. He raised us up with Him and seated us in the heavenly realms with our beloved Jesus the Anointed, the Liberating King.

– Ephesians 2:4-6 (VOICE)

 

We are confident that God is able to orchestrate everything to work toward something good and beautiful when we love Him and accept His invitation to live according to His plan.

– Romans 8:28 (VOICE)

 

…in every situation [no matter what the circumstances] be thankful and continually give thanks to God; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.

– 1 Thessalonians 5:18 (AMP)

 

So we have no reason to despair. Despite the fact that our outer humanity is falling apart and decaying, our inner humanity is breathing in new life every day.

– 1 Corinthians 4:16 (VOICE)

 

But those who trust in the Eternal One will regain their strength.
They will soar on wings as eagles.
They will run—never winded, never weary.
They will walk—never tired, never faint.

– Isaiah 40:31 (VOICE)
