God is for you

What then shall we say to [all] this? If God is for us, who [can be] against us? [Who can be our foe, if God is on our side?] [Ps. 118:6.]

(Romans 8:31)

He who did not withhold or spare [even] His own Son but gave Him up for us all, will He not also with Him freely and graciously give us all [other] thing.

(Romans 8:32)

Life Point

God approved of you before anybody else ever got a chance to disapprove. If God approves of you and accepts you as you are, why worry about what anyone else thinks? If God is for you-and He is according to Romans 8:31-who can effectively be against you?

Please remember that God love you soon much.

Bill Wiese - 23 Minutes in Hell

Please watch this video and listen very closely to what this man is sharing with all of us, please again listen and take heed to. Also write down all the scripture's if you want to, that this man mentions that are found in the Holy Bible, so you can go to the Holy Bible (God's Word) and look them up yourself. Whether you believe there is a heaven and hell or not. Whether you believe there is a 1 and Only 1 All Mighty God or not. And whether you believe there is a devil or not and his name is Satan. Please sit down and be still and do not answer your cell phone or talk to any one while you are watching and listening to this very important message this man is sharing with the world and all that will take the time and listen. Remember God loves us very much, and God wants all of us to make it to (Heaven with Him). And to live eternity, happy, glorious ever lasting lives with Him. Whether you believe what this man is saying or not. Whether you believe God sent this man to hell so God could show this man hell and bring this man back as a witness and to witness to us. Hell is real, this is not a game. Life is not a game. God is not playing a game with us. God is real, He does exist, and Satan is real and he does exist. God talks about hell and Satan in the Bible, God's Word, and God's Word is Truth.

God's Word said, This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live. (Deuteronomy 30:19)

And also please remember God love you, that He give up his only begotten Son Jesus Christ for you so that you could be saved.

Thank you for your undivided attention, Thank you for taking the time to watch and listen to this video, God loves you and I love you, may God bless you and your family where ever you may go or what ever you may do, and please have a beautiful positive day.

Different is Okay

The sun is glorious in one way, the moon is glorious in another way, and the stars are glorious in their own [distinctive] way; for one star differs from and surpasses another in its beauty and brilliance.

(1 Corinthians 15:41)

We are all different. Like the sun, the moon, and the stars (see 1 Corinthians 15:41), God created us to be different from one another, and He did it on purpose. Each of us meets a need, and we are all part of God's overall plan,. when we struggle to be like others, not only do we lose ourselves, but we also grieve the Holy Spirit. God wants us to fit into His plan, not to feel pressured to try and fit into everyone else's plans. Different is okay; it is all right to be different.

We are all born with different temperaments, different physical features, different fingerprints, different gifts and abilities, etc. Our goal is to discover what we are supposed to be as individuals, and then succeed at that.

Romans 12 teaches us that we are to give ourselves to our gift. In other words we are to find out what we are good at and then throw ourselves wholeheartedly into exercising our gifts.

I discovered that I enjoy doing what I am good at doing. Some people feel they are not good at anything, but that is not true. When we make an effort to do what others are good at doing, we often fail because we are not gifted for those things but that does not mean we are good for nothing. We should look for what we are good at and function in it.

We all have limitations, and we must accept them. That is not bad; it is just a fact. It is wonderful to be free to be different, not to feel that something is wrong with us because we are different.

We should be free to love and accept one another, as well as ourselves, without feeling pressure to compare of compete. Secure people who know God loves them and has a plan for them are not threatened by the abilities of others. I encourage you to be secure enough to enjoy what other people can do and to enjoy what you can do. Say positive things about yourself instead of negative things because that will help release the gifts God has place in you.

From Brokenness To Blessing

Therefore this iniquity and guilt will be to you like a broken section of a high wall, bulging out and ready [at some distant day] to fall, whose crash will [then] come suddenly and swiftly in an instant.

(Isaiah 30:13)

When you and I make our own plans or run to other people instead of trusting in the Lord, we leave a weak spot in our wall of divine protection. At a time when we least expect it, the enemy will break through that weak spot. When that happens, we will indeed be like the "broken section of a high wall" mentioned in Isaiah 30:13.

God does not want us to have weak spots in our lives. He wants us to rely on Him and be obedient to Him so our "walls" will remain strong and thick and our lives will be blessed and full.

The more we depend on Bod, the more He can do through us. But sometimes we go through brokenness before we enter His blessings.

Once for about a year and a half, I thought I might be going mad. All day long I walked around in my house, praying, "Help me, Lord!" I did not even know what kind of help I needed, or why I needed it. Now as I look back on that experience, I know what was happening. God was breaking off my spirit of independence, and He was bringing me to the point where I knew I could do nothing apart from Him.

I remember one night as I was getting ready to go to sleep, I picked up a little book and started reading it. Suddenly I had a visitation from God. For about forty-five minutes I sat there on the edge of my bed and wept. Finally, the Lord spoke to me and said, "Anything good you do has nothing to do with you. I am the One Who is good. When you see yourself doing anything good, it is only because I have wrestled with you to get your flesh under subjection long enough to allow My glory to shine through it."

Sometimes before od can promote us, He has to remind us of our place, In my own case, my ministry was just about to experience a sudden growth spurt. God was preparing me in advance by telling me, "I'm going to do something marvelous in your life and ministry, and when it happens you must remember that it is I and not you who is bringing it to pass."

God was teaching me what He is teaching all of us today; He is the answer to all of our problems.

Is God Angry?

Hello there, this is my girl Joyce Meyer. She is a amazing teacher of the Word of God. I listen to her all the time. God speaks through her wonderfully. God spoke through her to me one early morning 8 years ago. He voice woke me up out of my sleep, because I had fell a sleep one night and did not turn off my TV. When God woke me up out of my sleep that morning 8 years ago, He touched my heart through Joyce Meyer's voice, and the rest is history. I gave me heart, mind, and soul over to God and I have not turned back sense. I am in with God to win it, I am going all the way with God. He is the Love of my life and He can be the Love of your life to if He is not already. I put God first in everything I think, say, and do. And so should you, and your life will become better and better in every way because you have involved God entirety and completely in your whole life. Do not do anything with out God involved. And please (STAY IN THE WORD OF GOD). Get your Bible and read the Word of God everyday to feed your soul. Do Not Give Up on GOD. He Love YOU!!!!

Please just take some time for yourself and send some time listing to the excellent Word of God. God and His Word will give you light in a dark place. And always remember God love you very much. And He just wants us all to love Him back.

May God bless you in all you do and everywhere you go.

Enjoying God's Love

And we know (understand, recognize, are conscious of, by observation and by experience) and believe (adhere to and put faith in and rely on) the love God cherishes for us. God is love, and he who dwells and continues in love dwells and continues in God, and God dwells and continues in him.

(1 John 4:16)

Enjoying God's Love

The Bible says many times that God loves us. But how many of God's children still lack revelation concerning God's love? The truth is, very few of God's people really know how much He loves them. If they did, they would act differently.

Many years ago, I began studying how people can learn to receive God's love, and I realized that I was in desperate need of it myself. The Lord led me in my study to 1 John 4:16 and emphasized the importance of being conscious of His love. This means God's love should be something we are actively aware of. But how does one find this awareness?

I studied this subject for a long time, and I became conscious of God's love for me through thinking about His love and by confessing it alond. I learned scriptures about the love of God, and I meditated on them and confessed them out of my mouth. I did this over and over for months, and all the time the revelation of His unconditional love for me was becoming more and more of a reality to me.

Now, His love is so real to me that even in hard times, I am comforted by the "conscious knowing" that He loves me and that I no longer have to live in fear. This can happen to you, too.

I encourage you to know and believe His love for you. Meditate on and speak about God's love that He expresses to you in His love letters-the Scriptures. Why not start with 1 John 4:16.

The Book of Daniel in the Bible

Author: Daniel

Date: Late sixth century BC

Everyday Life Principles

Like Daniel, we must determine in our hearts that we will not defile ourselves, but that we will stay faithful to the Lord.

An excellent spirit is one of the be character qualities a person can have.

We must refuse to compromise or to allow the world's influence to cause us to turn from God.

Daniel is one of several biblical books that teach their lessons through a person's life. Two of the great lessons we learn from Daniel are excellence and courage.

Daniel 5:12 and Daniel 6:3 both tell us that Daniel had "an excellent spirit." Throughout the book of Daniel, we see him making excellent choices, and we read that he did things in an excellent way. But his choices and his actions were "fruits," not roots. The fruit of excellent decisions and behavior was rooted in his excellent spirit. As believers, you and I have God's Spirit living in us and we, like Daniel, can live with excellence because God is an excellent God!

Daniel also teaches us about courage. He was willing to suffer and even die for his beliefs. His courageous refusal to compromise landed him in a den of hungry lions, but God delivered him! Daniel ended up in a high government position; and the king of Babylon forsook his old ways, turned to God, and required his subjects to believe in God as well.

As you read the book of Daniel, I pray that you will be inpired to reach for higher levels of excellence in everything you do and taht your couage will be stirred. As we learn from Daniel, one uncompromising and brave person can change a nation!

God's Word

Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears and listens to and heeds My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will eat with him, and he [will eat] with Me.

(Revelation 3:20)

Revelation 3:20 teaches us that Jesus knocks at the door of many hearts right now, but we must remember that the doorknob is on our side. He is a gentleman; He will not force His way into our lives. We must welcome Him.

The Word of God

So then, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you may do, do all for the honor and glory of God.

(1 Corinthians 10:31)

Lift Point:

Real joy comes from being an empty vessel for God's use and glory, letting Him choose where He take you, what He does with you, when He is does it- and not arguing about it. Be willing to do everything for the honor and glory of God, as 1 Corinthians 10:31 instruct, and you will have great contentment and joy in your life.

The Bible

Only you be strong and very courageous, that you may do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you. Turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go.

This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good success.

(Joshua 1:7,8)

Life Point

How much time do you spend thinking about the Word of God? The Bible says that if you want to find wise answers to you problems and be successful and prosperous in all your dealings, you need to meditate on the Word of God day and night (see Joshua 1:8).

For most of my life, I did not think about what I was thinking about. I simply thought whatever crossed my mind because I did not know that Satan could inject thoughts into my brain. Most of my thoughts were either lies from Satan or just plain nonsense-things that wasted my time because they were not truly important. The devil was controlling my life because he was controlling my thoughts. Meditate on God's Word and you can push back the enemy. When you fill your mind with God's truth, you will find that your thoughts are thoughts of truth, freedom, victory, and peace.

Be Strong and Courageous

Only you be strong and very courageous, that you may do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you.

(Joshua 1:7)

God wants us to be totally free from fear. He doesn't want us to live in torment, and He doesn't want fear to stop us from confidently doing what He tells us to do. God moves on our behalf when we focus on Him instead of on our fears, when we listen to His voice instead of the voice of fear. When we have fearful thoughts or feelings, our enemy , Satan, is simply trying to distract us from God and His will for our lives. We may feel fear is various times in our lives, but we can choose to trust God and, if we need to, "do it afraid."

God spoke to my heart about "do it afraid" many years ago. when He told Joshua to "fear not," He was warning him that fear would try to stop him from doing what God wanted him to do. God told Joshua not to allow fear to control him, but to keep moving forward, strong and full of courage.

When we feel afraid, that first thing we should do is pray. We should determine to seek God until we know we have emotional and mental victory over fear. As we do this, we are focusing on God instead of on our fears. We are worshipping Him for Who He is and expressing our appreciation for the good He has done, is doing, and will continue to do.

Next time you face fear in your life, remember to be strong and full of courage and to keep moving forward in God's will. Even if you have to do something afraid, go ahead and do it while staying focused on God instead of you fear.

GOD'S WORD FOR YOU TODAY: Follow the voice of God, not the voice of fear.

Checks and Balances

Great peace have they who love Your law.

(Psalm 119:165)

I have written several times in this devotional about the fact that god sometimes leads us through circumstances. This is certainly true, but we must be balanced as we seek to hear and obey His voice through circumstances. I do not recommend using circumstances alone to discern God's will. We should also consider peace and wisdom, which I have also addressed in this book. These are major ways in which we hear from God, and we should never ignore them. A circumstance might look like an open door, but we should not go through the door unless we have peace.

Following circumstances alone can get us into real trouble. Satan can arrange circumstances as well as God can, because he has access to the natural realm in which we live. Therefore, if we follow circumstances alone, without considering other ways we hear from God, we can fall into deception.

We know we cannot go against God's Word. We must be led by peace and walk in wisdom. It is easy to do a quick "inner check" to test the level of peace in our hearts before allowing circumstances to lead us. The safest way to hear from God is to combine biblical methods of being led by the Spirit and allow them to serve as checks and balances for one another. It is always best to consider the whole counsel of God's Word and never merely try to find portions of it that agree with what you would like.

GOD'S WORD FOR YOU TODAY: Always follow peace when making a decisions.

Thus says the Lord, you Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: I am the Lord your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you in the way that you should go.

(Isaiah 48:17)

God has an individual plan for each person. If you will go to Him and submit to Him, He will come into your heart and commune with you. He will teach you and guide you in the way you should go. Do not try to be someone else. Do not try to do what someone else does. Just allow the Lord to show you how to fellowship with Him. Then follow Him step-by-step as He directs your life.

God's good plan

Your eyes saw my unformed substance, and in Your book all the days [of my life] were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there was none of them.

(Psalm 139:16)

God's plan for our lives has been established in the spiritual realm since before the foundation of the earth, and it is a good plan, as we see in Jeremiah 29:11; "For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in you final outcome.

Psalm 139:16 tell us that before we were even born, God had planned our days. However, Satan has worked hard to destroy the Lord's good plan in many of us, and he has had a high success rate.

God sent His Son, Jesus, to redeem us and to restore all things to proper order. He has written down His will for our lives, and as we believe it and confess it, it literally begins to become reality.

Some people believe for a great number of things but see very little manifestation of them. Perhaps the reason is because they are believing but not speaking. They may see some results of their faith, but not the radical results they would experience if they would bring their mouths along with their hearts into God's service (Romans 10:9, 10).

Some people are trying to live in the blessings of the Lord while still talking like the devil. We must not make that mistake. We will not see positive results in our daily lives if we speak negative things. We should remember that what we are speaking, we are calling for. We are reaching into the spiritual realm and drawing out something according to our words. We can reach into Satan's realm, the realm of curses, and draw out evil, negative things, or we can reach into God's realm, the realm of blessings, and draw out good, positive things. Words are like containers; they carry creative or destructive power.

The choice is up to us.

Stay Safe in the Word

Test and prove all things [until you can recognize] what is good; [to that] hold fast.

(1 Thessalonians 5:21)

Hearing from God clearly and avoiding the possibility of deception comes only from spending regular time with Him, learning His Word. Listening for God's voice without having knowledge of His Word is a mistake. Knowing God's written Word protects us from deception.

Trying to hear from God without knowing His Word is irresponsible, and even dangerous. People who want to be led by the Spirit but are too lazy to spend time in the Word and in prayer set themselves up for deception because evil spirits are eager to whisper to listening ears. The devil tried to say things to Jesus and He always replied, "It is written, and then quoted Scripture to refute the lies of the enemy (see Luke 4).

Some people seek God only when they are in trouble and need help. But if they are not used to hearing from God, they will find recognizing His voice difficult when they really need Him.

We need to compare any idea, prompting, or thought that comes to us with God's Word. If we don't know the Word, we won't have anything against which to measure theories and arguments that rise up in our thoughts. The enemy can present wild ideas that make sense to us. The fact that thoughts are logical doesn't mean they are from God. We may like what we hear, but the fact that something appeals to us doesn't mean it is from God. We may hear something that feels good to our emotions, but if it fails to give us peace it is not from God. God's advice to us is to always follow peace and let it be an umpire in our lives (see Colossians 3:15).

GOD'S WORD FOR YOU TODAY: Test everything you hear against the Word of God, because that is the only standard of truth that exists.

A Lamp and a Light

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

(Psalm 119:105)

There is nothing more supernatural than the Word of God, which is given to us by divine inspiration of the Holy Spirit speaking through His prophets and disciples. The Bible has an answer for every question we might ever have. The Word of God is full of life principles, true stories of God's mercy toward human behavior, and rich parables filled with important truths for every person on Earth.

The Bible is a personal letter to you and me. It tells us everything we need to know. There may be times when God speaks something to us that is not in a specific chapter or verse, but if He is truly speaking, then what we hear will always be in agreement with His Word. God will speak to us and lead us in every situation as we seek Him through His Word. When I need to hear from God about something specific, He frequently reminds me of a Scripture that clearly gives me the answer I am seeking.

Hearing God's voice (being led by the Holy Spirit) throughout each day has become a natural way of life for me since I received the fullness of the Holy Spirit. God gives the gift of His Spirit to everyone who asks (see Luke 11:13), and the Holy Spirit helps us understand God's Word so we can apply its wisdom to our lives.

GOD'S WORD FOR YOU TODAY:  Read God's Word as a personal letter, written just for you.

God's Words Agree with His Word

Your word have I laid up in my heart, that I might not sin against You.

(Psalm 119:11)

I once sat down to do some writing on a book and sensed the Lord saying. "Take a few minutes and just wait on Me." I waited for a very short time and then started to make a phone call. The Lord gently said, "I didn't tell you to make phone calls; I told you to wait on Me." My desire to do something was not unusual; most people have a hard time being still and waiting on someone, something, or even God.

After I got quit and waited for a period of time, the Lord began to speak to me about angels-something I certainly was not expecting. He led me to look up several Scriptures and I ended up having a mini-Bible study on the power and presence of angels. God has reasons for everything He does, and I believe He wanted me to be more aware of the angels working on my behalf-something I had not thought about for a long, long time.

You may wonder how I knew with certainty that God was speaking to me and that the whole subject of angels was not something I can up with in my own mind. The answer is that I had peace about what I heard. It felt "right" inside of me. My spirit confirmed it as a message from the Lord, and what I heard agreed with God's Word.

There have been other times I have waited on God and heard a similar voice, but knew intuitively that it was not God's. We must know God through His Word in order to safely know when He is speaking to us and when He isn't.

GOD'S WORD FOR YOU TODAY: Study God's Word so you can recognize His voice.

Be Filled at All Times

Do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but ever be filled and stimulated with the [Holy] Spirit.

(Ephesians 5:18)

It is important for you to know that you are instructed in God's Word to "ever be filled" with the Spirit-that is, to be filled at all times.

To do that, it is necessary to give Him first place in our lives. Often this requires discipline, because many other things demand our time and attention. There are many things we want and need, but nothing is more important than God. Seeking God daily through His Word and spending time with Him is the key to staying filled with His presence. An Attitude of gratitude is also very helpful, as is guarding our thoughts carefully.

The Holy Spirit never goes away; once He takes up occupancy, He settles in and refuses to leave. But it is important that we keep ourselves stirred up in spiritual things. Anything that is hot can grow cold if the fire goes out.

I went through a six-month period of time when God forbade me to ask for anything except more of Him. It was a great discipline in drawing near to Him on a deeper level of intimacy than I had known before. I would start to say, "God, I need _____," then I would stop myself as I remembered His instruction to me. I would finish my sentence with, "more of You."

God gives us everything we need; and He knows what we need before we ask for it. If we delight ourselves in Him and hunger for Him, He will also give us our hearts' desires. I encourage you, today and every day, to keep yourself filled with the Holy Spirit and to want more of God than anything else. He'll take care of the rest.

God's WORD FOR YOU TODAY: Be sure you're always "filled up" with the Holy Spirit.

We can do it by speaking to ourselves (through our thoughts) or to others (through our words) in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs. We need to keep our thoughts and words full of God's Word by continuously offering praise and giving thanks to Him.

Just Give It Time

Show me now Your way, that I may know You [progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with You].

(Exodus 33:13)

When you spend time with God, it becomes evident. You become calmer, you're easier to get along with, you are more joyful, and you remain stable in every situation. Spending quality time with God is an investment that yields rich benefits. You begin to understand what He likes and what offends Him. As with any friend, the more time you spend with God,  the more like Him you become.

Spending time with God causes you to become more sensitive to the love He wants to demonstrate to you and to others. Your conscience alerts you when you're talking to someone in a way that does not please Him. Your heart grieves when He grieves, and you quickly pray, "Oh, God, I'm sorry." You soon want to apologize to the person you have offended and discover that saying, "I'm sorry. I didn't mean to hurt you," isn't so difficult after all.

When God told Moses he had found favor in His eves (see Exodus 33:12), Moses understood that God was telling him he could ask for anything his heart desired.

Moses responded by saying that he simply wanted to become more intimately acquainted with God. Moses had seen God perform history's most magnificent miracles, yet what he wanted most of all was to know God intimately.

I pray that knowing God is the desire of your heart. You can know Him and hear His voice as clearly and as intimately as you want to. All it takes is spending time with Him.

GOD'S WORD FOR YOU TODAY: God does not have favorites, but He does have confidantes.

Putting the Word to Work

Do you ever struggle with how to pray or what to pray for? Your are not alone-even the disciples needed to learn how to pray (see Luke 11:1-4)! Although there is no one "right way" to pray, the prayer that Jesus taught His disciples is an excellent model.

Worship, intercession, repentance, surrender, praise, and petition are all important elements of prayer. Even as the disciples did, ask God to teach you about these different aspects of prayer and be sure to SPEND TIME WITH HIM (GOD) IN PRAY. DAILY.

Like a Child

Truly I say to you, whoever does not accept and receive and welcome the kingdom of God like a little child [does] shall not in any way enter it [at all].

(Luke 18:17)

God hears the simplest, faintest cry and receives the most childlike requests. I have raised four children and I now have nine grandchildren-and I can tell you that one thing children are not is complicated, Children have not trouble letting you know what they want, running into your arms when they are afraid, or giving you big generous kiss, sometimes for no apparent reason. When they ask their parents a question, they fully expect to get an answer and we should have the same expectation when we talk to God. Children are not sophisticated enough to hide their hearts or feelings very well and as a result, communicating with them can be easy and refreshing.

That's the way God wants us to be when we talk to Him. We need to approach God with childlike simplicity and wait, eager to hear what He has to say to us. Just as children are naturally inclined to trust their parents completely, we also need to be innocent, pure, and free from doubt as we trust God's voice. When we pray with simple, childlike faith, we can experience God's miracle-working power and see things change.

GOD'S WORD FOR YOU TODAY: When you pray today, call God "Daddy" and confide in Him completely.

Seek the "One Thing"

One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek, inquire for, and [insistently] require: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord [in His presence] all the days of my life, to behold and gaze upon the beauty [the sweet attractiveness and the delightful loveliness] of the Lord and to meditate, consider, and inquire in His temple. {Ps. 16:11; 18:6; 65:4; Luke 2:37.]

(Psalm 27:4)

If you could ask for only one thing, what would it be? in Psalm 27:4, David said there was only one thing that he sought after-to dwell in God's presence. More than anything else, David wanted to know God, to see God as He really is and to be with Him. Truly, to know God is the highest calling we have.

Unfortunately, we can get so distracted with the busy details of our lives that we neglect the most important thing-spending time with God. Luke 10:38-42 illustrates this point well as it relates the story of busy Martha. When Jesus visited her home, she became preoccupied with serving, but her sister Mary stopped all work and sat at His feet. Jesus told Martha that only one thing was really important, and Mary had chosen it. Mary had decided she was not going to miss the opportunity to visit with the Master. I suppose Martha intended to work Jesus into her schedule  somewhere, but Mary was willing to stop what she was doing and work her schedule around Him.

How foolish we are to spend our lives seeking those things that cannot satisfy while we ignore God, the "One Thing" Who can give us great joy, peace, satisfaction, and contentment. The world is filled with empty people who are trying to satisfy the void in their lives with the latest-model car, a promotion at work, a human relationship, a vacation, or some other thing. Their efforts to find fulfillment in those things never work. I t is sad that so many people waste their entire lives and never realize it. They never know the joy of seeking the "One Thing" they really need. Each one of us has a God-shaped hole inside, and nothing can fill it except God Himself. No matter what else we try to fill it with, we will remain empty and frustrated.

If God is on your list of things to seek, but not at the top, I encourage you to move everything around and put it all after Him. If you will put Him first in everything you do, you will be so blessed. Investing your life in God is the very best thing you can do.

With God, Nothing Is Wasted

Gather up now the fragments (the broken pieces that are left over), so that nothing may be lost and wasted.

(-John 6:12)

No experience in you life is ever wasted or in vain if you give all your cares to the Lord. Even if your fragmented life looks like an abandoned battlefield, Jesus can reshape all the pieces of your past into something beautiful.

After Jesus had fed five thousand people with just a few loaves of bread and two small fish, He told His disciples, "Gather up now the fragments (the broken pieces that are left over), so that nothing may be lost and wasted." (John 6:12) The disciples gathered up twelve baskets of food from the leftovers, still much more than the small offering of loaves and fishes that was made to Jesus in the first place.

God set me free from fear, insecurity, emotional addictions, and the bondage of a deep-rooted sense of rejection. Then He reshaped my fragmented life and gave me the glorious privilege of teaching His people how they can be whole; how they can have fruitful, happy lives and ministries; and how they can enjoy healthy, loving relationships.

We need inner strength to keep from being overwhelmed by outward circumstances. We must allow God to gather up our fragmented dreams and remold us into the image of Christ. To do that, He may have to crush the few pieces we have left into fine clay, water us with His Word, reshape our lumpy mass of leftovers, and put us back on His potter's wheel. But He is more than capable of designing something miraculous from whatever we have left to give Him.
