It's all in Your hands, Lord!πŸ™ . Sometimes we need to be reminded of the importance and power of prayer. Be aware of that you can bring anything to God, He already knows your heart. I mean, He's the One who made it!😍 You can't keep any secrets from Him, so why not just talk to Him about everything! πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘ God will answer your prayers, could be a 'yes', could be a 'not yet' and could be an 'I've got something better for you'! Most of the time it's maybe not what we expect but we just have to trust in His plan and in His good will!πŸ™ . And this is so important: Ask for anything that PLEASES HIM!!!!! πŸ™ŒπŸ˜²πŸ˜ƒ "And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him." 1 John 5:14
Trust in His plan!πŸ™Œβ€ . This keeps me alive! A truth so unbelievable that it makes you realize over and over again how great God's love for you is! He has a plan for your life, a plan that is there even if we don't see any evidence for a change in our lives. God is changing our hearts and preparing us for what there is to come, He only wants our best and in the end His will will be done in your life!πŸ™ Cause the plan of our Lord almighty NEVER FAILS, His love NEVER ENDS!😍 . "For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord . β€œThey are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11

God will take you higher and higher!πŸ™ŒπŸ˜ . Every time I open my bible on that page I can literally hear God saying: "My child, don't worry about your problems, trust in Me, I'll give you new strength, so that -with me- you can rise above life's difficulties!"πŸ™ . Trusting in the Lord means patient expectation, it means knowing something good will come and that He will give us the strength to go through any dark valley! He still has all the power that can work in our weakness!❀ . "But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:31
Empty me of me so that I can be filled with You, Lord!!!πŸ™ . Wanting more of Jesus and less of ourselves means: - leaving the past and the world behind us and focusing on the future and the cross, - wanting more of Jesus wisdom and becoming more like Jesus - being less selfish - loving and serving each other more πŸ™Œ . It's all about knowing and finding our identity in Christ. Fill your heart with His thoughts and words, not your own. Focus on the new you, the new creation you became in Jesus. Tell others about Jesus and share God's love!❀😍 . "He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less." John 3:30
The Savior of the world has said: "I love you"! πŸ™Œ . Some truth for you today❀: - God is love - God loved us first - God loves us even at our worst - We should love our neighbors as ourselves . Do you live a life where you pass on and share the love you receive from the Lord? Do you love others even if they seem to be your enemies? And do you love yourself too? You're created with love, in the image of God, why should we ever again think so poorly of ourselves, if God Himself decided to create you that way!πŸ˜πŸ™ . I want to share some of this biblical truth with you!⬇️ . "O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive, so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help." Psalms 86:5 "ForΒ God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16 . "Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance." 1 Corinthians 13:4‭-‬7 . "But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners." Romans 5:8
You are here ON PURPOSE!πŸ™Œ . Do you ever feel like you don't know what's going on in your life? You feel like your at a place you don't want to be or just don't see any meaning in anything?πŸ€” . We are and have all been at that stage in life. We feel anxious about the future and not sure about which way God wants us to go. But He still has a plan. πŸ™ He has placed you where you are WITH A PURPOSE! This purpose might be that He's preparing you for something, trying to open your heart or change your mind. We should even consider that we maybe are in the place we are because of somebody else, God maybe wants us to care for somebody, reach out or change somebody's life! Are you ready for these challenges? . You are where God wants you to be! Don't be afraid - just trust, there's a purpose!😍❀ . "You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed." Psalms 139: 16
You are not accidental or incidental!πŸ™Œβ€ . Yes! Every single one of us has a purpose in this world, a purpose that was designed just for you. Because the truth is - even before you were born, God knew your story and had a plan for you!❀ . Your worth and identity lies in God, whenever you feel like you have no purpose in this world, whenever you feel worthless and unimportant, remember that God created you and chose you to be His child! Let this be your IDENTITY! Nothing more, nothing less - just Jesus!πŸ˜πŸ™πŸ™Œ . You are chosen!!! ⬇️ β€œI knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5
God is not looking for perfect people but for willing vessels!πŸ™Œ . Are you willing to accept your calling from God and be a servant in His kingdom? Every single one of us is called, we are called to make a change in our and other people's lives. God loves to see us helping others, serving each other in our daily life! You can be the one who makes a difference in somebody's life!❀ . Read this amazing bible verse about serving each other with the gifts God has given you!πŸ™ . "God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen." 1 Peter 4:10‭-‬11
Suddenly it's your turn!😍 . Wow! What a promise! I just love that bible verse so much! 🀩 "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.”1 Corinthians 2:9 . I mean can you imagine what God has in store for you? Greater things than you could ever have planned yourself! Don't stop praying for God's will to be done in your life and expect miracles to happen. God is equipping you right now, changing your heart for that one moment you're waiting for! No situation is too complicated, no conflict too hard for the Lord to solve it! Your turn will come! Are you prepared?πŸ€—πŸ˜ƒπŸ™Œ
We belong to our Creator!😍 . We tend to search a lot for a place or a person we belong too, but eventually we have to focus on where our identity really lies - only in God our Savior. The One who has created you in His heart and chosen you to be His child and a part of His kingdom! Be aware of the honour which is included in this! The creator of every single detail on this planet chose YOU to belong to Him! Wow!πŸ˜πŸ™ŒπŸ™β€ . "So now you Gentiles are no longer strangers and foreigners. You are citizens along with all of God’s holy people. You are members of God’s family. Together, we are his house, built on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets. And the cornerstone is Christ Jesus himself. We are carefully joined together in him, becoming a holy temple for the Lord. Through him you Gentiles are also being made part of this dwelling where God lives by his Spirit." Ephesians 2:19‭-‬22
God knows your name!😍 . How can the almighty creator of heaven and earth, the One who's had a plan for everything even before time existed look at me and say: "I love you, my child!"😲❀ . Wow such an unbelievable thought! God is our Father, and what father wouldn't know his child's name! He loves us, cares for us and only wants our best! That is a promise we can rely on, God is still the same! πŸ™Œ . Thank you Lord for choosing to create me, thank you Lord for knowing my name and showing me your love in every little detail in my life!πŸ™ . "He made heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them. He keeps every promise forever." Psalms 146:6
Trust changes EVERYTHING!πŸ™ . God just wants to say: "My child, why are you trying so hard? Trust me, I've got this!"πŸ™πŸ˜ . Cause see what the bible says: "Commit your way to the Lord ; trust in him and he will do this" Psalm 37:5 . What really can make a difference in our life is not how hard we try to achieve certain goals but it's about putting all our trust in God knowing that He will take care of our situation, fight for us when we're in trouble and show us the way when we can't see it! πŸ™Œ . "When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praiseβ€” in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?" Psalm 56:3‭-‬4
You are here ON PURPOSE!πŸ™Œ . Are you also searching for the purpose in your life? That one significant thing that God made you for? Well, this search is not quite easy. When God made us, He CHOSE to make us, He CHOSE to have someone just like you on this planet. Just that truth is the most amazing thing, isn't it? He gave you purpose when He made you!πŸ™ . Job knew: "I know that you can do all things; no purpose of yours can be thwarted." (Job 42:2). This means that our purpose LASTS, it can't be UNDONE! . There is a purpose for you too and God will fulfill his promise to you, the purpose in your life! . While searching for our purpose we search for God, while drawing closer to God, we also come closer to our purpose. God will eventually reveal it too us, our purpose is to serve in the Kingdom of God all days of our life! You are called to make a change!!!πŸ™πŸ˜β€ . "One thing I ask from the Lord , this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple." Psalm 27:4
He has already written your story!!!😍 . Wow! There is NO need to worry when we know that our Father, the author of all our stories, has already written our lives in His book! There is already a plan for us, an eternal purpose waiting to be fulfilled in our life! What amazing grace!πŸ™ . In your prayers today, tell the Lord that you are ready for Him to be in charge of your life, to lead you the ways He wants you to go and for His spirit to fill you so that you can be a blessing to others!β€πŸ™ . "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord , β€œplans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
God reveals power when you offer praise!πŸ™ŒπŸ˜ . Entering God's presence is the most beautiful thing we can experience, we are longing for His spirit to be in and all around us. . Enter His presence with praise and worship and expect God to enter your circumstances, your troubles and conflicts with mighty power! Praise Him ALWAYS for He is good!!!β€πŸ™ŒπŸ™ . "Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name." Psalm 100:4 NIV . "My tongue will proclaim your righteousness, your praises all day long." Psalm 35:28
Don't stop praying for the miracle to happen!!πŸ™πŸ˜ . We are all praying for miracles to happen in our lives, whether it's about finding a partner, getting pregnant, being healed, getting a new job or even a major change in our life or solving a conflict in a relationship.❀ While we struggle with these challenges, the bible assures us that God has a plan for us and that His plan is better than anything we have ever dreamed of! He is the wonder-working God, the God of miracles for whom NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE! So tell God about your dreams and troubles, pray and dream BIG! Your prayers will be answered! His will is good!😍 . "You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples." Psalm 77:14
How can people see Jesus in YOU?πŸ˜ƒ . If you don't dare being the one people can see Jesus in - than who could be? πŸ™Œ . Read this bible verse πŸ“–: "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me." Galatians 2:20 . We learn that Christ lives in us, which means that people should be able to see Jesus in our lifestyle and actions, hear His words when we speak and see us radiating Christ! This can be quite challenging, we need to take one step at a time, if we are in Christ and let Jesus live in our hearts we have the skills and the chance to show other people how He has changed us! Don't be afraid and SHOW THEM!!😍❀
Allow God's word to transform your life!!!πŸ˜ƒπŸ™Œ . The Bible doesn't only want to inform us about what God has done in other people's lives or about Jesus teachings. Instead God wants us to be transformed by His word, He wants us to ACT according to what He has said and what Jesus has taught and wants to see a change in us, a transformation through Christ! . Let this be your reminder today to actually let God transform you with His word, read the Bible and try to make use of what you learned from it! Jesus came to earth to make A CHANGE! A change in YOU! Are you ready?πŸ™πŸ™Œβ€ . "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will isβ€”his good, pleasing and perfect will." Romans 12:2
