A godly and biblically-based devotional to help people with their faith and confidence; to encourage, educate, and inform. Come everyday for inspiration. Almost everybody is going through something and you can get through it with Jesus. I am a witness to that fact. Never give up on the great blessings God already has lined up for you. Jeremiah 29:11 says, 'He knows the plans He has for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'

The Steadfast Love of the Lord
"Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love" (Psalm 33:18).
That means stand strong, stand firm, and stand steady in the Lord who gives you the power to get so much. He gives you the power to get peace, joy, happiness, wealth, great relationships, and much more. Does that mean that everything will always go perfectly? You know the answer to that. What do I say in my applicable blog posts? The answer is a resounding "no", nothing goes according to the ways we want them 24/7. If anybody tells you that, just know that they are thinking more like the Pharisees and Sadducees, who thought if tradition and rules were followed then things would be perfect. And they were quick to judge others except themselves, especially if they saw anything that went against tradition (urrrrrgh, that's one of my least favorite words). Anyway, they were clearly against Jesus and even wanted to test Him (Matthew 16:1-12). Imagine that. Such thinking is not on the things of the Lord. It's prideful and arrogant thinking, which is not standing in fear of the Lord. It's acting qualified like we've got it all together. Who has it all together? Do you know anybody besides Jesus who has it all together? I don't know anybody else who qualifies as perfect and who does everything right. Jesus is the only one I can think of and He doesn't call the people who think they're already qualified. He can't work with that attitude, because it's ignoring this important point: "God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, so that no human being might boast in the presence of God" (1 Corinthians 1:27-30).
I say all of that to say this: stand strong in the steadfast love of the Lord and continue to do so. It doesn't matter what anyone else is doing, whether anyone judges you, or what anyone thinks of you. Just stand strong, firm, and steady in Him.
Hear what Sha Sha has to say about our steadfast love for God. Sha Sha is my avatar, so her face is based on my face and the voice you hear is actually me speaking through her.

She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa

We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small.

Oh yes, so speak life to your life and know that the Lord's Word never comes back void. It is always alive and active. It's never too late to start speaking over your life. In Mark 11 :24 Jesus says, "therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours" and Proverbs 23 :7 says, "for as a man thinks in his heart, so is he." Those verses are proof that when something lives in our heart, all we have to do is open our mouths and speak those things as if we already had them. It's amazing how much power we really have, but we throw it away, because of our lack of faith. I've done that for years and let me tell you, it's not happening anymore. I'm not giving no thing, no one, and no place another inch of m
