ALIVE WORD: God is in control!

Ministers Wilbert and Jackie Richardson

By Ministers Wilbert and Jackie Richardson

“Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it’s that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.” — Deuteronomy 31:6.

Once you desire to grow closer to God and develop an intimacy with Him, you‘ll notice that the attacks of the enemy will intensify against you. At times it seems like the more you pray, praise, and try to walk uprightly, the hotter the fire and the stronger the waves around you. What should you do? Just keep on praying, praising, rejoicing, trusting, and depending on the Lord. Take hold of your weapons.

Remember we’re in a war. Use the word of God, the blood of Jesus, and the name of Jesus, and use your authority to destroy all the works of the enemy.

Have you been worrying, complaining, doubting, and not trusting God? It’s time for a change! Rise up and take your stand! The battle isn’t yours but the Lord’s. Remember that God has promised not to give us more than we’re able to bear. You’re only going through, you’ll not go under. Even if your present situation was meant for your evil, allow God to turn it around for your good. Remember, “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD” (Isaiah 54:17).

Prayer: Father in the name of Jesus Christ, we pray for all those who are reading this devotional today.  Lord you know each one by name and you know the situations that they are facing at this time.  We pray that they will surrender all to you and allow you to take full control of their lives.  We pray that they will seek you first and your kingdom so that all things will be added unto them.  Help them to cast every care on you this day and realize that you are more than able to fix every situation because you are in control, in Jesus name amen.

    AMEN AND AMEN.. I JUST READ MY BIBLE AND SOME OF THESE VERY VERSES. I JUST WOKE UP FROM A NAP AND I’M SEEING IT AGAIN.I KNOW IT’S A REMINDER AS I’M ABOUT TO SET FOOT OUT OF MY HOUSE. I’M GOING THROUGH A TOUGH TIME AND HAD BEEN CRYING A FEW HOURS AGO.. WHEN THERE’S NOWHERE AND NOBODY ELSE TO TURN TO THERE’S ALWAYS THE LORD. THE BOTTLE WON’T SET YOU FREE AND THE DRUGS WON’T SET YOU FREE. ONLY THE LORD CAN. STOP TRYING TO TAKE CONTROL OF THE SITUATION AND LET GOD..YOU MIGHT BE ASKING WHY YOU.. THE TRUE QUESTION IS WHY NOT YOU.. EVERYTIME I’M GOING THROUGH A TOUGH TIME I KNOW THAT GOD IS TRYING TO GET ME CLOSER TO HIM AND I THANK AND PRAISE HIM BECAUSE HE WANTS ME TO BE A PART OF HIS KINGDOM.. FOR PEOPLE WHO THINK THEY CAN’T CHANGE, HE HAS STRIPPED ME OFF ALL MY BAD HABITS AND THE THINGS I WENT THROUGH WERE NOT VERY PLEASANT.. BUT I UNDERSTOOD WHY THEY WERE HAPPENING..IT’S BECAUSE HE LOVES ME AND HE LOVES YOU TOO..HE CAN AND WILL DO IT FOR YOU..JUST LET HIM IN..HE’S KNOCKING

    In the world of technology, there is a piece of hardware called a hard drive, scientists have developed this aparatus for the use of sustaining infrormation that is designed to have a permanent fix, which makes it almost impossible to erase. With that said, it makes the understanding of the human heart easy to understand how information is also critical to the heart. The right information is often distorted by the environments that are formed around us. what I’m saying that although salvation is a free gift to your soul, yet the continuous information that has to reinforce that fact is a system of truth that comes from God. The scripture that comes to bear is Joshua Chp 1 verse 8, we can all change our environments based on the information that we cultivate around us.
