Who Does God's Favour Rest On?


Isaiah 33:15-17 (AMP)

"He who walks righteously and speaks uprightly, who despises gain from fraud and from oppression, who shakes his hand free from the taking of bribes, who stops his ears from hearing of bloodshed and shuts his eyes to avoid looking upon evil. [Such a man] will dwell on the heights; his place of defence will be the fortresses of rocks; his bread will be given him; water for him will be sure. Your eyes will see the King in His beauty; [your eyes] will behold a land of wide distances that stretches afar."
May 2015 be the year we live in such a way that we dwell in high places, defended and powerful, with an abundance of provision (bread and water). May our eyes see the King and enjoy the spacious places He has provided, stretched out far and wide before us. So be it according to the Word of the Lord.

He Brings Victory


There are circumstances that press hard against our souls. That is the journey we face in this life. However, we are not without help. There is a God who observes all the wrong. He schemes the justice you desire. He orchestrates your victory in exacting detail. When you cannot trace His hand, you can trust His heart. He is for you and no one will prevail against you. There can be seasons which appear to bring nothing but destruction. This is not the end of the matter. God loves a big finale. He takes great pains to plan the decimation of an evil assignment against you and He will bring it to an end. That is His promise. Psalm 118:5-7 (NIV) "When hard pressed, I cried to the Lord; he brought me into a spacious place. The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me? The Lord is with me; he is my helper. I look in triumph on my enemies." Wait with expectancy for God to deal with the injustice. It is your birthright. In the midst of the battle it may appear the enemy is winning, but it is not the end of the story. David knew the harshness of the storm. Ps. 118:12-17 "They swarmed around me like bees, but they were consumed as quickly as burning thorns; in the name of the Lord I cut them down. I was pushed back and about to fall, but the Lord helped me. The Lord is my strength and my defence; he has become my salvation. Shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous: 'The Lord’s right hand has done mighty things! The Lord’s right hand is lifted high; the Lord’s right hand has done mighty things!' I will not die but live, and will proclaim what the Lord has done."
You will live to tell of the raging victory God is designing specifically for your trial... Shouts of victory will be coming from your tent! Wait expectantly for your God.
