step out in faith


Faith is all about stretching. Your obstacles, challenges, even opportunities may seem intimidating and overwhelming, but God would not have presented them to you if He had not already known that you have what it takes.

It's important to keep your faith in God. He is in control, even in times of difficulty. He is directing your steps and turning tough situations around. How

When we're tested, it shows what's in us… not what we think is in us, but what's really in us.

‎"For the word of the Lord holds true, and we can trust everything He does" (Psalm 33:4). Don't lose faith in God, no matter the situation. He is completely trustworthy.

you are valuable.....

“And walk in love, [esteeming and delighting in one another] as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us...”

(Ephesians 5:2, AMP)

In today’s culture, we don’t often hear the word esteem used very much, yet, scripture tells us to esteem and delight in one another. One definition of esteem is to hold in high regard. That means we are to honor and value one another. Even if we don’t always agree with one another, even if they don’t necessarily act honorably, we are to honor and esteem others because they are valuable in the eyes of God.

Think of it this way: if you had a costly and valuable piece of jewelry, you wouldn’t just wear it to the gym or leave it on the kitchen sink. No, you would treat it carefully. You would put it in a safe place and protect it. Well, when we see others as valuable the way God sees them, we will treat them carefully as well. We should be careful in the way we talk to others. We should look for the good in them and honor them for who God made them to be.

Lift up your eyes

When we are depressed, it seems everything around us is falling apart. We lose strength our heads and hands and hearts all begin to hand down. Even our eyes and our voices are lowered. We become downcast because we are looking at our problem rather than at GOD.

God encourages us. Psalm 24:7- lift up your heads and  the king of glory may come in
Genesis 12:14 lift up your eyes and look around in all direction for god will bless you

decide to lift up your head and eyes and look at the possibilities not the problems around you. Trust God to lead us into an even better situation.  We must never magnify the facts of our circumstances above God and the power of his Word. When God speaks THINGS CHANGE!!!

Have faith that God is speaking to your circumstances today.  If you place your faith in God he will bless you everywhere you hurt! GOD BLESS YOU MY FRIENDS!
