MockingBird's comment on 2015-05-03 07:08:41:

I will Trust in the Lord with all my heart : This is a heart thing not a mind thing : The mind is enmity with God : so therefore whatever I may think is right in my own eyes is not right in God 's eyes. He has a better plan mapped out for me : So I go to His word and in prayer I will get myself lined up with Him and will be getting out of or in to what and where I am to be. I have to go up to be able to get out. The way of the natural world is down : down : Praise God for His Wonderful salvation.

I needed this thought this morning! We can get caught in our world of worry when all we can do it to be prepared to accept the change that 's coming our we and trust that it will be good.

faith is the confidence that it 's already done! faith in God pleases him! makes God happy , by faith we declare the challenges overcomed, the failures end in passes, the impossibles made possible and it brings the inner joy and peace of mind. I passed in a difficult situation, by grace and mercies, prayer and the scriptures lifted my faith, i stand trusting God all that i declare in prayer in line with God s will all declaration will come to pass ....Mark 11:23, ......mountains obey a command of faith, a command with belief that what has been said shall come to pass.

This is such a good scripture to live by. Jehovah God 's ways and thoughts are so much higher than our so obeying and living by them will be to the best of our benefit. As imperfect humans we really don 't have the right or the capacity to decide what is truly right and wrong.


Nika's comment on 2014-07-08 18:41:32:

GOD is telling us to seek his wisdom and knowledge and he 'll provide what this world cannot!! Peace, joy and our everyday needs. Don 't try and figure things out in your life when you experience hardships, and you will. But put your trust in HIM and he 'll provide, protect and give you the strength you need to overcome any situation.


Dorothy Boucher's comment on 2014-02-08 10:03:17:

It is always a wonderful feeling to know that no matter what we are facing we have a wonderful savior to keep us and minister to us during these times giving you that peace that only he can give thank you Jesus!!

Trusting in Jehovah God with a complete heart involves doing things his way, according to his will. Central to doing so is our continually approaching him in prayer and making heartfelt requests for his guidance.


Jozua's comment on 2013-10-10 05:40:49:

''Lean not'' is a Command of God,just as He said ''thou shalt not''eat of it(Genesis 2:17)for it was destructive,and so is also our own understanding in life,so We must submit,and get the understanding of God(Proverbs 4:7)in the matters of life.

This scripture is telling us to put our trust on the Lord for whatever is happening in our lives, we must know that God is always there for us and we must not depend on our own understanding because we are His burdens


Opit Kim Craig's comment on 2013-08-21 02:03:53:

just heard from my regional manager telling me to close down my branch cuz well, business is pretty low. yet rental dues at the office & home r in excess of three months; i hv the whole time been rationally been thinking on hw to get around this prayerfully tho! anyhw, to realize that this scripture profoundly hints that i should literally let go & let GOD, to kinda be in honey moon, a holiday while some else oversees my affairs is not only confusing but demands patience & resilience. qn is by tiring & worrying wl i sort anything?! this hv i failed to do for the past three months. so what do i gotta do if not to trust & obey a mysterious~simple supernatural omnipresent GOD who has got good plans for me & u?!^


Francis Ochegba Ojonugwa's comment on 2013-08-20 22:19:17:

That scripture is sayin that we should be death to our thing, sight, cir***stance around us, and be alive unto His promises.
