Confidence in GOD – S4 Ep11 

Fireside Chat

Have you ever had confidence in someone to later find out that you could not depend on that person after all? No doubt, most of us have experienced that disappointment before. Then it is time to put your confidence in God. For sure, I know from my own experiences that I will never have to worry about that with God. You see, my confidence in God is solid. Because the Lord Jesus Christ is the only one who honors His word. 

1 John 5:14-15 New King James Version says, 

“14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.” 

Moreover, He has made it very clear that He will always be there.

From Weeping to JOY – S4 Ep4 

In general, most people understand that life consists of ebbs and flows. We all have or will experience ups and downs, easy times as well as tough times. Sadly, for some individuals, the hard times overwhelm and overtake them. In other words, they only see suicide as the solution to their troubles. But oh, my friends, there is a better way — trusting God. In my experience, trusting Him took me from weeping to joy.

Of course, I must show you what the Holy Bible says about the matter in the following scripture. Proverbs 3:5-6 English Standard Version says, “5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”

Letting Go – S4 Ep2

In general, most people would agree that it is good to take an inventory of one’s life. Why? Because it is during that time one reflects on who or what they need to purge from their lives. For the most part, that means breaking the chains that have been holding you back from living your best life. How? By letting go.

Thus, I liken it to a spring cleaning of sorts. Of course, no one likes spring cleaning, but it is always necessary. Provided that, it is during that time that we often come across things that we should and need to be letting go of.

RECEIVE – S4 DEp2 

Lady V’s Devotional Episode 

Romans 8:32 (TPT) says: 

For God has proved his love by giving us his greatest treasure, the gift of his Son. And since God freely offered him up as the sacrifice for us all, he certainly won’t withhold from us anything else he has to give. 

Romans 8:32 (TPT) 

Devotional 

A father’s love is such a treasured gift to any child. And the Heavenly Father, gave us HIS greatest treasure in the gift of His Son.  

God’s love poured out upon humanity through the greatest sacrifice ever known on the Cross. When Jesus died on the Cross for the sins of the world, God’s love was proven.  

God loves us more than we can fathom and we should never doubt that. Instead, let’s acknowledge that the sacrifice of HIS Son wasn’t an easy one—but it was necessary to save humanity.

Wait on the LORD – S3E11

Admittedly, when I hear “Wait on the Lord,” it is often easier said than done. One reason is that we live in a microwave society. In other words, many of us lack patience; we want things fast—we want them NOW. No doubt, I am not the only one who has felt that way.

As a matter of fact, I am waiting on the Lord for some things at this very moment. But even when I find myself impatient; guess what I’m going to do? Wait on the LORD. Because, one of the many things I’ve learned in my relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ is that I cannot rush God.

Refuse to Give Up – S3E5

When making life decisions, there are two groups of people–those who give up and those who refuse to give up. In general, the majority of those who give up do so for different reasons. Contrary to what others may think, it is not always because of laziness or lack of ambition. Believe it or not they give up for reasons that very well may be are out of their control. Such as, illness, lack of finances, education, or family support.

Refuse to give up on God’s promises 

Now for the sake of this blog post when I say, “Refuse to Give Up,” I am talking about God and His promises. What I know for sure is that when God makes a promise it will come to pass. 2 Corinthians 1:20 New Living Translation says, “For all of God’s promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding “Yes!” And through Christ, our “Amen” (which means “Yes”) ascends to God for his glory.” 

In other words, if He promised it in His Word, trust and believe you will see it. And if He put a promise in your spirit you can bank on it happening. Numbers 23:19 New Living Translation is very clear; “God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through?”

Only Believe – S3-DE4

Lady V’s Devotional Episode 

Hebrews 11:6 (NIV), says: 

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” 

Hebrews 11:6 (NIV) 

Devotional 

When I was younger my dad would have my older sister and me sit at the kitchen table to read Bible verses. I didn’t quite understand what I read in scripture, but I believed God was real. And I believed in Jesus. 

As I grew older, I began to see things happen in my life that I couldn’t quite explain. Things I hoped for began to happen for me.  

I didn’t quite grasp at that time that God knew the secret petitions of my heart, and most importantly—He knew me! 

Nothing was kept from Him and everything was right in front of Him. He cared about whatever concerned me.

The Divine Delays in Life – S2E2

First, if you are like me, there have been times when you asked or prayed for something to happen but it didn’t happen right away.

Of course, in those times the question was, “Why is it taking so long,” or “Is it even going to happen?” Nonetheless, there was clearly a delay.  

So, let’s look at the definition of delay. It means to put off to a later time; to defer; to postpone. Now, a divine delay, on the other hand, is when God intervenes on a person’s behalf.

Trusting Beyond What You Think or See

Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.  

Proverbs 3:5-6, NLT 

Devotional 

We go through phases in life where trust is required to move forward. However, trusting can be difficult. Imagine that someone is asking you to jump out of a plane for the first time. And, you don’t know if the parachute will come out or where you will land.

It can be a pressing task trying to trust when you aren’t certain of what is ahead. Unquestionably, if we knew the future it would be great, however, knowing it doesn’t require faith.   

God requires us to take a leap of faith! When we trust God, we are saying to HIM that we have faith in HIS plan, not ours. It’s not always clear what that plan is but the Word of God tells us, 

“I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.” Jeremiah 29:11, MSG
