Week of 3/18/2024 Encouragement


Lord, we are so very thankful, as we surrender to You, You do not leave us to our own opinions. We certainly can get caught up in thinking our ways and feelings are right. When we do that, we give our feelings rulership to run our lives, instead of God. We see how messed up things can get when we don’t let You direct our thoughts and speech. “We are all in love with our own opinions, convinced they’re correct. But the Lord is in the midst of us, testing and probing our every motive.” Proverbs 16:2 TPT Lord, thank You for helping us learn to submit our thoughts, emotions, and opinions to Your thoughts, Words, and deeds. Let us be sensitive to Your guidance. The moment our thoughts go off track, we can get back on track quickly. Blessings, as God brings His perfect alignment to every area of your life. Love y’all, but remember: JESUS LOVES YOU MORE!!!


Our opinions must line up and agree with God’s Word, not what I think or feel, or what the world is trying to tell me is right. We live in a time where everyone has an opinion, but “you better agree with mine ’cause I’m right”. The truth is we better agree with God because He’s always right. It sounds much like what Elijah was facing when he stood on Mount Carmel defying the leadership structure of the time. “Then Elijah stood in front of them and said, “How much longer will you waver, hobbling between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him! But if Baal is God, then follow him!” But the people were completely silent.” 1 Kings 18:21 NLT We know that God answered by fire, burning up the sacrifice. Elijah believed he alone was standing for righteousness and truth, but God had reserved 7,000 who refused to bow their knee to a false, ungodly opinion of the leadership in control at the time. We choose to stay focused and in agreement with God. We will see our God prevail and conquer the evil dictates of our time. The Lord is God, and we shout His praises throughout our land. We are not alone. There are more with us than against us. Blessings, as you stand firm upon the promises of our Mighty God! Love y’all, but remember: JESUS LOVES YOU MORE!!!


God has given us His powerful, transforming Word, so that we may be doers of it. HIS Word helps us choose life over death, and good over evil. God’s greatest command is to love the Lord our God, and from that place of love, to walk in His ways. “But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, so that you may obey it.” Deuteronomy 30:14 AMP Let us speak His Word boldly, proclaiming His ways, and annihilating darkness with His light. As long as we stand in His Word, we will remain standing, because His Word stands forever. Blessings, as God’s Word, reveals His ways to you and enables you to stand in His complete love. Love y’all, but remember: JESUS LOVES YOU MORE!!!


When making decisions, we must first put our focus and trust in God. Our trust should not be primarily in our wisdom or ability. All we do should first be committed to the Lord, especially those things we already think we’re really good at. “Before you do anything, put your trust totally in God and not in yourself. Then every plan you make will succeed.” Proverbs 16:3 TPT Holy Spirit, reminds us to put our expectations and trust in our God. Lord, may we continually commit all our ways to Your wise counsel and guidance. Thank You, Lord, that You desire us to succeed, prosper, and be in health. Blessings, as you submit everything, trusting in the loving direction of Your Father God. Love y’all, but remember: JESUS LOVES YOU MORE!!!


We are continually in the process of God’s divine training in our lives. He has so much of His abundance He wants us to walk in, but we must choose to live by His guidelines. When we truly love God, we consistently keep His Word and focus on His instructions, because His ways are not a burden to follow. “And have you forgotten His encouraging words spoken to you as His children? He said, “My child, don’t underestimate the value of the discipline and training of the Lord God, or get depressed when He has to correct you. For the Lord’s training of your life is the evidence of His faithful love. And when He draws you to Himself, it proves you are his delightful child.” Hebrews 12:5-6 TPT Lord, direct our footsteps today and help us to follow Your ways and apply Your Word to every aspect of our lives. Thank You for loving us so much to instruct and train us in Your abundant ways of life. Blessings, as you march to the heartbeat of your loving God! Love ya’ll, but remember: JESUS LOVES YOU MORE!!!


As we celebrate Purim, where God delivered His people from certain destruction, we can rejoice in the power and love of our God to deliver. In the book of Esther, we see that “in one day the enemies of the Jews who hoped to overpower them, the opposite occurred”, and the Jews overpowered those who hated them. Our God takes what the enemy means for evil and works it for good, as we stay in the intimate love of God. “But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive.” Genesis 50:20 NKJV People may mean evil, but God is bigger. The enemy truly is positionally under our feet. We are positionally seated in Heavenly places in Christ Jesus. The enemy is a defeated foe. We trust God, and He has made us more than conquerors through Christ Jesus. We keep our eyes fixed and focused on the supernatural promises of our God, Who causes us to triumph over all the plans and schemes of the enemy. As we keep our trust in God, we see His goodness manifest in the earth. Blessings, as you release God’s promises in the earth, that execute judgment against the enemy. Love ya’ll, but remember: JESUS LOVES YOU MORE!!!
