How will GOD use you today? Are you able to hear His still and small voice? Or do you hear the shouts of your PLANNED LIFE?
GOD often wonderfully surprises us. He regularly uses the unlikely–people and circumstances–to accomplish His purposes. Paul wrote, “But GOD chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; GOD chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. GOD chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things” (I Cor 1:27-28).
GOD can use anyone. If we allow His work to be done in us, we might be surprised at what He can do through US! He desires our willing hearts?
Don’t Limit God You are the creation. He is the Creator. You cannot out-think the One who made you. He delights in performing the Impossible. He is the Master of the Turn Around. Never underestimate Him.
“And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible,” (Mark 10:27).
Once opportunity is lost, it won’t be repeated. Each opportunity is a test of the vision of the that person. What happens when you don’t take your opportunities seriously? Who do you trust to fulfill them? GOD…you? Opportunity doesn’t shout, it whispers, and our ears must be attentive. When opportunity knocks, it doesn’t kick down the door, and we had better be alert to open the door. Or, we just might miss it.
For of all sad words of tongue or pen, The saddest are these: “It might have been!” ~~J. Greenleaf Whittier
We have not even to risk the adventure alone for the heroes of all time have gone before us. The labyrinth is thoroughly known … we have only to follow the thread of the hero path. And where we had thought to find an abomination we shall find a God.
And where we had thought to slay another we shall slay ourselves. Where we had thought to travel outwards we shall come to the center of our own existence. And where we had thought to be alone we shall be with all the world.”
God bless America, land that I love, Stand beside her and guide her Through the night with a light from above. From the mountains, to the prairies, To the oceans white with foam, God bless America, My home sweet home.
While the storm clouds gather far across the sea, Let us swear allegiance to a land that’s free. Let us all be grateful for a land so fair, As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer:
God bless America, land that I love, Stand beside her and guide her Through the night with a light from above. From the mountains, to the prairies, To the oceans white with foam, God bless America, My home sweet home. God bless America, My home sweet home.
1 You who sit down in the High God’s presence, spend the night in Shaddai’s shadow, 2 Say this: “God, you’re my refuge. I trust in you and I’m safe!” 3 That’s right – he rescues you from hidden traps, shields you from deadly hazards. 4 His huge outstretched arms protect you – under them you’re perfectly safe; his arms fend off all harm. 5 Fear nothing – not wild wolves in the night, not flying arrows in the day, 6 Not disease that prowls through the darkness, not disaster that erupts at high noon. 7 Even though others succumb all around, drop like flies right and left, no harm will even graze you. 8 You’ll stand untouched, watch it all from a distance, watch the wicked turn into corpses.
9 Yes, because God’s your refuge, the High God your very own home, 10 Evil can’t get close to you, harm can’t get through the door. 11 He ordered his angels to guard you wherever you go. 12 If you stumble, they’ll catch you; their job is to keep you from falling. 13 You’ll walk unharmed among lions and snakes, and kick young lions and serpents from the path. 14 “If you’ll hold on to me for dear life,” says God, “I’ll get you out of any trouble. I’ll give you the best of care if you’ll only get to know and trust me. 15 Call me and I’ll answer, be at your side in bad times; I’ll rescue you, then throw you a party. 16 I’ll give you a long life, give you a long drink of salvation!”
