(our little people with fur)
What an awesome weekend! We adopted an additional little people with fur on Saturday. Her name is Jochebed and she came from a local animal shelter. She was abused and seized from a home who was starving her. I don't understand how anyone could be so cruel but she will live like a princess now! Jericho loves her and is happy to have a playmate.
Bobby preached two incredible messages yesterday. It was a great day in the House and God's presence was amazing!
Luke 10:19, I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.
With God's power, we are able to overcome anything the enemy puts in our path. Even though God's Word reaffirms that many times we find ourselves questioning God and allowing fear to creep into our minds about situations we are facing.
Matthew 6:25, "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life......." Why do we worry so much about everything? God's Word encourages us not to worry about anything. When we allow worry and fear to creep into our lives we tend to focus on the negative and miss God's opportunities. We become consumed by the possibilities of what could happen and sometimes that prevents us from recognizing what is actually transpiring in our lives. The doubt and fear overwhelms our very being and there is no place, time or desire for prayer or spending time with God. We become useless as a Christian because we are so caught up in things we most likely cannot control or change. I believe we miss many blessings because we doubt that God can take care of us.
As Christians we must learn to trust God and completely relinquish all of our worries and fears to Him. We practice great lip service but do we sincerely place our trust in God and believe that He will take care of every need in our lives? His Word explicitly tells us that we are not to worry about anything. Worry distracts us and hinders God's will in our lives. God loves and cares for us just the same as we love our children, grandchildren and spouses. Allow Him to take care of your needs. Practice releasing every worry and concern to Him this week. You will be amazed at how well He manages and resolves issues in our lives that seem to be managing us.
