Give a warm welcome to my Christian sister Melissa. We both go to Newbold Baptist Church in Rochdale and Melissa is going to join me on "Walter's Preach" telling you a bit about what it means to be a Christian and how knowing Jesus Christ has made such a difference in her life. Walter.
In God we Trust?
"Blessed are those whose strength is in you," (Psalm 84:5a)
"Lord Almighty, blessed is the one who trusts in you." (Psalm 84:12)
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
Our God is great, He loves to answer our prayers. We as Christians sometimes forget all the prayers He as hanswered when we are going through them tough times. So I just say to you when you are going through those hard times... just stop for a minute and remember all the prayers He has answered in your life. It's safe to say He will answer your prayers again.
I have been learning a lot in life lately and one of the things I'm learning is to wait on God's timing. So many times I rush into things and so many times I get it wrong. It's because when we rush into things we are not prepared. It might seem like nothing is going forward, that we not progressing but we have got to understand in those times God is teaching us, preparing us and moulding us into what we need to be in order to do what he wants us to do.Thank you Lord for preparing me for what you want me to do.
Amen bro this is the calm before the storm. God's got a plan but he is allowing us to be made ready, Everyone in the Bible who God used in a big way had to be prepared first. Sometimes for many years.
Ah THANK YOU Walter! I needed to be reminded of this today! We do tend to think that what we are doing is so important and can get wrapped up in our plans..... all the while Jesus' one main goal for each of us is to become more like Him.. and yeah we need to recognise the preparation time too.. He knows just when we are ready for those good works which He has planned in advance for us to do... (think that's in Romans!) Ephesians 2:10
I have decided to follow Jesus... the world behind me the cross before me...though none go with me I still will follow...no turning back !no turning back!. William J. Reynolds
God gives us the strength to do all things, even the things we said we would never do or couldn't do. With Him we can do all things and if He's got His hand in it there is not a man on earth who can stop it, so prepare to do things you wouldn't think you would do in your lifetime, because he doesn't call the equipped he equips the called. Remember when God's in control anything can happen.
