I’ve got a word of encouragement just for you: ALL of God’s promises to YOU are YES and AMEN!
Are you burnt out, stressed out, and overwhelmed with worry? Have your feelings taken over your faith? I hear you, I see you and I know what you’re feeling. I’m here to encourage your heart.
As I was praying, Holy Spirit laid this message on my heart for you. I know it’s hard right now. I know you feel like you can’t see and nothing makes sense.
Yes, I know you don’t know what to do. Your heart is broken, your mind is foggy, and you feel like giving up! On top of it all, you’re probably even facing some challenges with your health!
You wonder, “When God? Will it always be this hard?”
Is this you, my friend? If so, may I speak life into you today?
Hear God’s heart for you in this moment:
- I’ve not forgotten you
- I love you
- It won’t always be like this
- It won’t always feel like this
- I’m STILL a right-on-time miracle-working God
- I’m ALL you need
- You’re not a disappointment and I’m NOT disappointed in you
- Don’t stop praying. I hear you, I care, and I AM answering you.
In these moments of intense pain and wondering, it’s easy to forget the faithfulness of God. It’s too easy to forget His goodness.
Pause a moment with me, will you?
Recall the last time you prayed and God answered. Write your answer down.
Thank Him for helping you before and for doing it again!
think deeply or focus one’s mind for a period of time;
think deeply or carefully about (something).
If we’re going to meditate on anything during these challenging times – let it be on the goodness and faithfulness of God!
Not the news report, health report, bank account report, or any other report standing in opposition to who GOD is in YOUR life!
Recalling the faithfulness of God ignites our faith. What prayer did God answer for you? If He did it then, He can and will do it again! He’s still a miracle-working God! #faith #hope #GodTweet
What we meditate on becomes the mountain staring us back in the face. We give our power away to a temporary situation or feeling.
Worse yet, instead of telling that mountain to MOVE (Mark 11:23), we try to become ‘comfortable’ with its existence in our way!
Perhaps you are familiar with the saying, “We become what we behold?”
When we focus on our faith, it grows. In the same way, when we focus on our fears, bad habits, difficulties, or lack, it too grows. If not literally, it becomes what consumes our thoughts.
Thoughts turn into belief systems. Belief systems turn into actions or inaction (settling). We rise only to the altitude of our faith. – Holly ♥ #wisdom #faith #beliefTweet
How I Know God’s Promises Are Yes and Amen
God is not a man who lies,Numbers 23:19
or a son of man who changes his mind!
Does He speak and then not do it,
or promise and not fulfill it?
Who am I to say all of this to you, you ask?
I am the woman who had doctors give up on her very life. “You’ll be gone [dead] soon,” they said. BUT GOD said… “You will surely live and not die!”
I’m also the same woman who has truly struggled this past couple of months – with anxiety, depression, self-doubt, health flares, feeling unworthy, and incapable – of nearly anything. I’ve felt those highs and lows of faith, wondering, “God, where are you in this?”
I have desperately needed words of encouragement, hope, faith, mentors and friends to speak words of Godly wisdom.
My faith, like yours, has been tested to the max this year, and especially these last few months.
Can you relate?
Yes, my friend, these moments of testing do come. We aren’t guaranteed a trouble-free life as Christians. In fact, we are guaranteed that we will face trials and troubles. (James 1:2)
Wholeness Haven was born out of decades of pain, struggle, trauma, breakdowns, and then back to believing!
It’s okay to be where you are and who you are. It’s okay to admit when everything isn’t all sunshine and smiles!
God’s promises are and will still, always be, yes and amen!
The most important thing? We can’t forget how BIG the God we serve is! He gives us beauty for ashes, the oil of JOY for mourning, and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness [depression]. (Isaiah 61:3)
I know your situation looks impossible. Your emotions are turbulent, unpredictable, and you feel deeply discouraged.
Maybe your own self-doubt has kicked into overdrive. You question yourself, your worth, your abilities, and your direction so much that you feel paralyzed.
In Exodus 14, God makes a way for the Israelites to escape where there literally was no way. God instructed Moses to lift up his staff and watch the Red Sea part so they could safely pass through.
13 Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. 14 The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”Exodus 14:13-14
The Lord Is Fighting FOR You
What battle are you facing today? What enemy stands in your face, stealing your joy, health, peace, and relationships?
He will do for you what He did for the Israelites. The Great I AM is fighting your battles for you. We simply must do what Moses answered in v. 14, “You need only to be still.”
Being still doesn’t necessarily mean ‘do nothing.’ It means resting in the truth of God’s love, protection, and provision for you concerning any situation you are facing today.
As I took the time to pray and worship, Holy Spirit highlighted a song to me. It brought me to tears as I meditated on the truth of these words.
Will you take a moment and consider what it means for you?
What is Holy Spirit speaking to your heart about your situation as you listen and quiet the confusion in your mind?
Beloved, God can still split the sea for YOU… ⤵
My Heartfelt Prayer For You
Father God, I’m so grateful for my friend reading this. I thank you for their very life, their heart, their gifts, talents, and abilities. I thank you for everything you’ve done for them, through them, and rejoice in knowing the BEST IS YET TO COME!
Lord, I lift their every need up to you. I take authority over every feeling of loneliness, despair, despondency, and depression in the name of Jesus. I release the oil of joy over their minds and hearts. I declare that their best days are ahead of them, not behind them. I release favor for finances, businesses, creativity, and prosperity in every area.
In the name of Jesus, I come against every spirit of infirmity affecting their bodies and their minds. I command these tormenting, mind binding spirits to loose my friend now, in Jesus’ mighty name.
Father, above all, I ask that your perfect love would saturate my friend’s heart and cast out EVERY fear of every kind. Release them, Lord, from tormenting thoughts and feelings of insecurity, anxiety, hopelessness, disorders of every form, and all demonic assignments that would keep them from fulfilling their call and purpose found in You.
Lord, I thank you for splitting the sea on my friend’s behalf. I thank you for making a way where there seems to be no way. I thank you for eliminating confusion and replacing it with your clarity. I thank you for healing their marriages, homes, children, and lives. I thank you for your faithfulness and willingness to show us just how LOVED we are!
I plead the blood of Jesus over every life reading this. I plead the blood of Jesus over everything that concerns them. I commit it into your watchful care and trust that you are meeting them exactly where they need you most.
Thank you, Lord. I believe it is done, in Jesus’ mighty, matchless name! AMEN & AMEN!
God and I Love You!
If you are still with me, hear me when I say that God and I love you more than you can imagine. You matter. Your story matters.
Did this message speak to you? Did it minister to your heart today?
My sincere hope and prayer is that you will leave feeling lighter and more loved than when you first came.
If your heart has been touched, will you share this message of hope with your friends and family on social media? Thank you! ❤
Last but not least…remember this…
You don’t need to have it all together to talk with God. We can’t earn salvation, and we can never be ‘good enough’ on our own.
Why would we need a Savior if we have the ability to save ourselves?
The Lord sees you. He hears you. Every sigh, every tear, every worry and every fear reached His heart. You are loved beyond measure and are ALWAYS on His mind.
Go to Him. Talk to Him like you would talk to me. He’s waiting for you… exactly as you are.
No matter what you’ve done, are going through, or need – it’s nothing He ain’t seen before!
Listen to this and then meet Him at the table… ⤵
