CONFIDENCE & FAITH

ALOHA FAMILY AND FRIENDS,  Beloved of the Most High.

CONFIDENCE & FAITH,     “WORTH CONSIDERING”    4/22/19   (Across my desk this morning.)

Today’s Scripture
“So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.”  (Hebrews 10:35, NIV)

It Has A Great Reward
Have you been praying and believing for something that seems like it’s taking a lot longer to see the answer than you thought? Many times, people can miss God’s best simply because they give up before they see their “due season” come. Don’t let that be you! Be encouraged today, your answer is closer than you think. If it seems like things are getting more difficult, remember, when the intensity heats up, that means you are closer to your victory. It always seems darkest just before the dawn arrives. You serve a faithful God, and He’s working behind the scenes on your behalf. Don’t cast away your confidence today, because your reward is coming. And just like a new mother forgets about her labor pain when she is finally holding her newborn, you’ll forget about your struggle when you are holding on to your promise. While you are waiting, keep an attitude of faith and expectancy. Wake up every morning and say out loud, “I’ve come too far to give up now. My due season is coming. I will reap my harvest.” Stay in faith and look for His hand of blessing because He has promised you victory, and it’s closer than you think!

A Prayer for Today
“Father in heaven, today I stand believing that You are working behind the scenes on my behalf. Give me Your strength to continue believing until I see Your promises fulfilled in my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

My Comments:
In the Old Testament there is a scripture that states,  “Where there is no vision the people perish, Prov. 29:18” and in Isa.28 we are told that, 

Because you have said, “We have made a covenant with death,
And with Sheol (the place of the dead) we have made an agreement,
When the overwhelming scourge passes by, it will not reach us,
For we have made lies our refuge and we have concealed ourselves in deception.”

16 Therefore the Lord God says this,

“Listen carefully, I am laying in Zion a Stone, a tested Stone,
A precious Cornerstone for the [secure] foundation, firmly placed.
He who believes [who trusts in, relies on, and adheres to that Stone] will not [b]be disturbed or give way [in sudden panic].
17 
“I will make justice the measuring line
And righteousness the mason’s level;
Then hail will sweep away the refuge of lies
And waters will flood over the secret [hiding] place.
18 
“Your covenant with death will be annulled,
And your agreement with Sheol (the place of the dead) will not stand;
When the overwhelming scourge passes through,
Then you will become its trampling ground.

Isaiah 28:15-18.

Therefore it is very imperative that we find the TRUE VISION of God and what is HIS precious corner stone of security.  And that we place our Faith and Confidence in that which our Creator has directed us to.  Otherwise we can expect a very unhappy ending to our life story.  It is also imperative that we also share that wonderful vision of security during the short time we have been given to live on earth.

Yours, in HIS great Love and wonderful grace and mercy,   Ken<><    www.Trinity-Aloha.org
