Thoughts for Today
By Laurence Torr
Whatever you’re going through right now, God is with you and is for you, He will help you through your toughest times. As You turn your heart to God and go to God in prayer, and ask Him to help you, He will provide for you great comfort, He will bring peace to your heart, and still the storms in your life, despite your situation. He will provide you with the strength that you need and give you direction for your life, any fears you may be experiencing will begin to melt away.
No one on the face of this earth is immune to adversity. Everyone throughout their life at times will face challenging times and difficult situations, or grief and loss or sadness, or loneliness or uncertainty or trouble or distress, others find themselves with no direction or help. Whoever you are, believer or unbeliever if you are going through troubled waters in your life turn your heart to God right now, pray to Him, talk to Him give Him all your problems ask for His help and comfort and direction, if you do this right now, you will find peace begin to fill your heart, hope and expectation will begin to rise up in you. God will begin to fill you with an expectation of hope and a future. I want you to read the following verses of scripture below. This is God’s heart for you, see that God is for you and He is the one that will help no matter how big your problems are. No matter what it is you’re going through. Because God is a God of love, He is the God of all comfort, God is able to supply everything need you have to help you in your life.
All you need to do is go to Him and believe and expect from Him, then you will see things begin to change. There are no limits as to what God can do for you when you ask Him to help you. God wants you to stop trying to work things out on your own, for in your own ability you are limited. But God is an unlimited God there is nothing too hard for Him to do to help you. Help also implies that there is something you need to do, and as you do your part God will help you and rescue you.
2 Corinthians 1:3 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
4 Who comforteth us in all our trouble, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
God is a God of mercy, when things have got too much for you to handle and you’re at the point of giving up when you turn to God, He will help you and set you free from whatever your going through, God is able to take you out of the trouble you’re in, to the point you are able to help others and bring help to others.
Psalms 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
The word ‘refuge’ can also be shelter, God is your shelter in the storms of life and your strength He is present to help you, He is present to heal you, He is present to provide what you need, so you can come out of your troubles.
Isaiah 40:28 – 31 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Don’t you know? have you not heard that God is everlasting? God created the heavens and earth by the words of His mouth, God is not weak he does not faint and He does not get tired and He can empower and increase your strength, so you can win in your situation, God will help you, but you need to turn to Him with all your heart. If you go to Him right now He can and will renew your strength like the wings of eagles so you can rise way above your problems, you will gain height over your problems you will not be weary and faint again. You will be able to live your best life free from worry, fear, lack, poverty and sickness, don’t you want that for your life, freedom from fear?
Jeremiah 29:11-13 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.
13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
God’s thoughts about you personally are of peace and not of evil, God wants you to live full days with joy not sorrow, and God will give this to you when you go to Him, you can begin right now.
God says ‘call upon me, pray to me and I will listen to you’, God says ‘seek me and you will find me’, search for Him with all your heart. You will absolutely find Him. I am a witness of God’s goodness every time I have turned to God and sought after Him, He has helped me, He has delivered me, He has provided for me, this is why I am encouraging you right now, God is real and He is for you. He will turn your life around, He will answers your prayers He will heal you and help you. For those who are reading this, if you have not experienced the power of God in your life, you can right now, do not wait a moment longer.
God sent His son Jesus Christ, who made it available for you to have a direct connection and access to God, Just like Jesus Christ had when he walked this earth, and Jesus Christ is not dead, He is now seated next to God at God’s right hand, Jesus Christ is alive right now by the power of God. Right now you can be set free, this is real it is not religion or a game God is for you. that is why He sent His son Jesus Christ.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
God loves the people in this world, God wants all men to be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth. The truth is that He is for you, that He loves you, that He will help, That you can have a great life now. God does not want you to go through life defeated, sick, or problem after problem, with no help. He is not the cause of the bad things in this world, God is light and in Him is no darkness at all, Satan is the one that causes all these bad things in this world. But right now my focus is on what God has made available for you today and for the rest of your life.
God wants you well and to have a great life, and it is available, by believing on His son Jesus Christ, God is not condemning you, but has made a way for you to have a relationship with Him through believing on Jesus Christ.
Romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
This is how you receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour if you say with your mouth Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, the scriptures says here you shall absolutely be saved.
If you believe this then say it with your mouth, believe it with all your heart, and as you do God will fill you with his His holy spirit, you will receive the gift of eternal life.
You have to make that choice alone with God. It is through your freewill choice and decision to make Jesus Christ the Lord of your life, and when you do that God can and will mightily go to work in your life. If you want to know your have eternal life and as the world says that your going to heaven. Then this is the way you will know you have eternal life, by saying Jesus is the Lord of your life and believing with all your heart God raised Him from dead.
Jesus Said this
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
There is only one way to God, that way is through believing on the Lord Jesus Christ and making Him the Lord of your life.
Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Matthew 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
Matthew 11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Jesus also said if you are weary if you are troubled come to me, if your labouring hard in this life, if you are burden down with the cares and problems of this world. The invite is to you, to make Jesus Christ your Lord, what he gives to you to do in this life is light and not heavy and you will find rest in your heart and your mind. He will put nothing heavy upon you, You will be able to more than just cope in this life. God is the God of peace and Jesus Christ is the prince of peace, if you want peace in your mind and heart then this is where true lasting peace comes from.
John 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
Jesus told His disciples here ‘not to let their hearts be troubled but believe in God and also Believe also on Him’.
Philippians 4:6 Be careful (anxious) for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
God does not want you to be anxious about anything, but God wants you to go to Him in prayer He wants you tell Him all your problems and then not to think about them, because once you have given your cares your worries your problems to Him then He will then take care of them. And as you give your problems away to God and trusting Him to meet your needs you will begin to enjoy the peace of God in your heart.
I will finish off here with a wonderful record that will show that Jesus came that we might have life and have it more abundantly in every area of life.
John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
The thief is Satan, the Bible also says in 2 Corinthians 4:4 ‘This thief is the god of this world, this thief comes only to steal from your life, to kill the joy,& strength from your life and to destroy eternally, this thief can only steal from you, if you believe his lies. Like that there is no God there is no Jesus, he puts the pleasures of this world in front of your face, to distract you from really knowing that the true God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ is living and real, Satan is the one that brings sickness, death, defeat, wars, divisions, hatred.
Jesus Christ exposed who Satan is, and revealed unto you and me the Heart of the true God the creator of the heavens and earth that He is a God of love, and is a God who can give you the best life right now and the one to come. You can have this life by receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, and you can receive all the great things God has available for you today.
The Choice is yours and yours alone to make. God wants you to choose life, and you do this by confessing Jesus as your Lord and believing with all your heart that God has raised Him from the dead.
If you have made Jesus Christ the Lord of your Saviour, I encourage you to find a strong believer that can help you and encourage you in your new life and journey with God.
