What do you need right now in your life? Shelter, Refuge, Comfort, Healing, Wisdom? Having the right relationship with God is beautiful. Giving Him all the control in your life is the best decision you could ever make.
The Lord is our provider. He is omniscient (all-knowing), omnipresent (everywhere, all the time), and omnipotent (all-powerful), Jeremiah 42:11
The Bible says He’s our shelter, refuge and hiding place. Psalm 91
He is the one who comforts us 2 Corinthians 1:3
He is our healer Psalm 103:3
He is the source of all wisdom and everything else we need. James 1:5
The Lord has a specific plan for each and every one of us. His plan is bigger and better than ours. He wants to bless you so you can fulfill His plan and purpose. We tend to make the mistake by going to people with our problems expecting them to fix them instead of relying on God to do that.
Whatever it is that you desire or need, remember the verse in Philippians 4:19 where it says, And my God will liberally supply (fill to the full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. In Matthew 6:33 it says, But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right). and then all these things taken together will be given you besides. When we seek other things instead of God, our focus is not in the right place. The relationship with God needs to be our number one priority all the time because everything we need is found in Him. When you find yourself spending more time with God seeking His face and not His hand as to what can he give me and do for me then my desires and thoughts line up more with His will.
Whoever would come near to God must believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:6
If we are children of God, we are heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ. Romans 8:17
Love our enemies, do good, and lend hoping for nothing in return, and our reward will be great and to be merciful, just as our Father is merciful. Luke 6:35-36
Do not judge others, forgive and to be generous with our giving, For, with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you. Luke 6:37-38
Allow God to be the Umpire in your life and in your hearts. I promise you this, God has amazing plans for us if we just allow Him to take over.
