Nothing is random in My kingdom. Everything that happens fits into a pattern for good, to those who love Me. Instead of trying to analyze the intricacies of the pattern, focus your energy on trusting Me and thanking Me at all times. Nothing is wasted when you walk close to Me. Even your mistakes and sins can be recycled into something good, through My transforming grace.
While you were still living in darkness, I began to shine the Light of My Presence into your sin-stained life. Finally, I lifted you up out of the mire into My marvelous Light. Having sacrificed My very Life for you, I can be trusted in every facet of your life.

"Who ever knew Your counsel, except You had given Wisdom and sent Your Holy Spirit from on high?" —Wisdom 9:17
Promise: "Now with You is Wisdom, who knows Your works and was present when You made the world; who understands what is pleasing in Your eyes and what is conformable with Your commands." —9:9

with every fiber of your being! What I can accomplish in and through you is proportional to how much you depend on Me. One aspect of this is the degree to which you trust Me in a crisis or major decision. Some people fail miserably here, while others are at their best in tough times. Another aspect is even more telling
the constancy of your trust in ME. People who rely on Me in the midst of adversity may forget about Me when life is flowing smoothly. Difficult times can jolt you into awareness of your need for Me., whereas smooth sailing can lull you into the self-sufficiency.
I care as much about your tiny trust-steps through daily life as about your dramatic leap of faith. You may think that no one notices, but the ONE who is always beside you sees everything-and rejoices. Consistently trusting in ME is vital to flourishing in MY Presence.

" I tell you the truth, whatever you Did Not Do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me."
Jesus wasn't asking us to be a social worker, a psychologist or a judge. He was asking us to give, as best we could, and to leave the results to HIM.

- The devil cannot defeat me
- People cannot disillusion me
- Weather cannot weary me
- Sickness has tried to stop me and it cannot win
- Battles cannot beat me
- Money cannot buy me
- Death cannot destroy me and hell cannot handle me

... allowing HIM to take charge of this day. Do not bolt into the day like a racehorse suddenly released. Instead, walk purposefully with HIM, letting HIM direct your course one step at a time. Thank HIM for each blessing along the way; this brings Joy to Him and yourself. A grateful heart protects you from negative thinking. Thankfulness enables you to see the abundance HE showers upon you daily. Your prayers and petitions are winged into heaven's throne room when they are permeated with thanksgiving. In everything give thanks, for this is His will for you.

I asked for strength and God gave me difficulties to make me strong.
I asked for wisdom and God gave me problems to solve.I asked for prosperity and God gave me brawn and brain to work. I asked for courage and God gave me dangers to overcome. I asked for patience God placed me in situations where I was forced to wait. I asked for love and God gave me troubled people to help. I asked for favors and God gave me opportunities. I received nothing I wanted. I received everything I needed. MY PRAYERS HAVE BEEN ANSWERED.
