“Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation.” Psalm 91:14-16
It is so comforting to know today that the Lord will rescue us and protect us if we acknowledge his name. He will be with us in trouble and deliver us. He will also honor us and give us long life. When we acknowledge the Lord, we say hello to him everyday and commune with him. Before we do anything major, we consult with him and ask for his guidance. We lean on him for support and we reverence him. Continue to rest in God’s care and acknowledge him. Your life will continually to be blessed. Acknowledge the Lord everyday. Always say hello.
Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise.” James 5:13
Take time out today and decided to be happy with your life regardless of the challenges. If you are in trouble then take time out to pray. That’s what I have decided to do recently. I am grateful to God for all he has done. I love him with all of my heart and I want to be obedient to him and receive all of the blessings that he has in store for my life. I do not want to jeopardize my destiny and blessings by living a sinful life. No matter what my personal needs or passions are, if they go against the word of God, I will not do it. Learning to be obedieint to the Lord and reap his many blessings is making me very happy as well. Happiness is available to you today too.
“In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God. Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us.” Psalm 62:7-8
Take comfort in knowing that you can depend on the Lord to be your refuge. Trust him to handle situations in your life. The Lord is our salvation, rock and strength. He is smarter than we are and he can see ahead in the future when we cannot. Depend on the one who knows the end of your story. Trust the one who created you and who is the author of your life. Your life is a book that you are living to write everyday. When you get stuck pray and ask the author of your story to heal you, bless you and reveal the next chapter of your life. Then ask him to help you get through each chapter with victory. When challenges come your way, ask God(your author ) to help you. Be encouraged, blessed, healed and favored while basking in the refuge of the Lord. In all things ask your author.
“The Lord will keep you from all harm, he will watch over your life.” Psalm 121:7
Be encouraged today and embrace the protection of the Lord. It feels so good to know that we can rely on God for comfort. He will protect us from harm and watch over our lives. I need the eyes of the Lord upon me at all times. I appreciate that he is watching over my life. What about you?
“If a man digs a pit, he will fall in it; if a man rolls a stone, it will roll back on him.” Proverbs 26:27
Make sure you move out to the way of people who are deceitful, manipulative, controlling, selfish, inmmature, jealous, envious and evil. When they dig pits for others by mistreating people or when they roll stones(try to hinder others) the stone will roll back on them. So put on your sneakers and jump out of the way because these people have extreme devastation coming back to them. They have built a life of deception and have yet to reap what they have sown. Make sure you move to the side because when they start reaping what they have sown, you do not want to be in the harm’s way. They have created a “boomerang” effect on their lives. Move out of their way, run and do not look back!
“The crown of the wise is their riches: but the foolishness of fools is folly.” Proverbs 14:24
People who walk in wisdom will be honored, favored, protected, provided for and blessed. Those who refuse to walk in wisdom and choose to continually reside in foolishness will continue to operate in stupidity. Be encouraged today to allow wisdom to saturate your life into blessings.
“It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick.. But go and learn what this means: “I desire mercy, not sacrifice.” For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners” Matthew 9:13 NIV
The Lord desires acts of kindness and benevolence rather than vain traditions and religion. Concentrate on what you can do to help bring “life” to others and be a “light” to ones who are lost and in darkness.
“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.” Psalm 23:5
Be encouraged today and know that you don’t have to fight your battles to get any type of revenge on your enemies. The best revenge is success. The Lord will bless you and prepare a table(a life of blessings, destiny and favor) in the presence of your enemies. Your enemies will look at you and feel like they have been slapped in the face. Your success and blessings will irritate your enemies. You will not need to get revenge. Just the slap(your success and blessings) alone is enough
I was a special guest on my brother’s(Ben Tankard) reality show entitled “Thicker Than Water” The Tankards. It was hard work and loads of fun. It’s about life and family and you will experience an abundance of emotions. Season 2 is going to be spectacular! Check us out this Fall on Bravo TV network! ~Patrice Tankard
