Ordered Steps:

The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighted in his way. though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.  Psalm 37:23-24

What a mighty God we serve: He already know that we are going to make mistakes and sometimes even step outside of his will. Our God will never turn his back on us, he is not only right there with us through our trials and storms, but he is actually, carrying us through it.  Carla

Faith:

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1

Friends, sometimes we get weary, but we have to hold on to God’s word.  We must not be moved by what we see, but remember if God said it; it shall come to pass.  Carla

Armor of God:

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the tricks of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.  Ephesians 6:10-13

My friends, God is our armor.  Every day we have to make sure that we have on the breastplate of righteousness and take on the helmet of salvation.  Having our loins girt about with truth and our feet fitted with the readiness of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking on the shield of faith, and the sword of the spirit.   Carla

The good shepherd:

The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.  He lets me  lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside still waters  He renews my life:  he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.  Thou prepares a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anoints my head with oil; my cup runneth over.  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.  Psalms 23: 1-6

It is so great to know that we have a good shepherd.  Someone who feeds us, clothes us and gives us shelter. We might not always get what we want, but I promise you we will always have what we need.  Carla

Chosen People:

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sins and will heal their land. 2nd Chronicles 7:14

My friends, this scripture speaks to me:  It lets me know that even when I mess up and go astray, that if I truly have a repentance heart  my God is there.  He is waiting with Grace and Mercy and will fulfill the promises that he has given to each and every one of us.  Carla 

The Kingdom of Heaven:

Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33

My friends, I know that we all want the blessings of God, but we have to make sure that the way we are living lines up with his word. We have to continue to seek him with all of our heart and to make sure that we are fasting, praying, and meditating on his word day and night. And we know that he shall supply all of our needs. Carla

For everything …

Quote

For everything there is a season and a time for every matter under heaven and a time to every purpose, a time to be born, a time to die, a time to plant and a time to reap a harvest. Ecclesiaties 3:1

Be patient and wait on the Lord. He might not come when you want him to, but He is always right on time. -Carla
