God’s Blessings Come From Obedience

by Hazel Straub

We are in a time of transition. The winds of change blow away the things on which we depended that are not God. These things kept us from fully depending on God and putting him first. God calls to us to leave the idols of pride, self-sufficiency, stubbornness and dependence on self, other people, and material possessions, and not God. He asks us to believe that he goes with us to take out the giants and circumstances, in our land of Promise. Trust with confidence and believe God, letting go of fear and unbelief. Enter into your promise with faith. God has made promises to you that he will fulfill, as you obey him. Confess that you haven’t depended on God. Move in obedience to God, for overflowing blessings and the impossible, in the natural, to manifest in your life. God’s blessings bring a surprising increase, good, beneficial and pleasant in your life. What was dead comes to overflowing abundant life, through Christ Jesus.

Do not look in natural strength but to the Lord your God. Nothing is too difficult for him. Look to him for your help and strength. He is your Shepherd and you will not lack any good thing. Give him trusting faith.

But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:57 KJV)

Unity In Humility And Love

by Hazel Straub

Paul urges the church to be united together in Christ, loving each other, with one mind. When we follow the example of Christ, humility rules and we serve one another, in love.

Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and compassionate? Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose.

Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.

You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.

Though he was God,
he did not think of equality with God
as something to cling to.
Instead, he gave up his divine privileges;
he took the humble position of a slave
and was born as a human being.
When he appeared in human form,
he humbled himself in obedience to God
and died a criminal’s death on a cross.
Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor
and gave him the name above all other names,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:1-11 NLT)

God Is Kind To You!

by Hazel Straub

God is full of compassionate and mercy towards us. His lovingkindness towards us never ends. He is worthy of all our worship and praise.

Lord, you’re so kind and tenderhearted
to those who don’t deserve it
and so patient with people who fail you!
Your love is like a flooding river
overflowing its banks with kindness. (Psalm 103:8 TPT)

Need Wisdom And Insight?

by Hazel Straub

Discouraged, where can you go to become encouraged? Need wisdom and insight? What is more desirable than gold and sweeter than honey? What is this? It is the Word of God the Bible!

The instructions of the Lord are perfect,
reviving the soul.
The decrees of the Lord are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.
The commandments of the Lord are right,
bringing joy to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are clear,
giving insight for living.
Reverence for the Lord is pure,
lasting forever.
The laws of the Lord are true;
each one is fair.
They are more desirable than gold,
even the finest gold.
They are sweeter than honey,
even honey dripping from the comb.
They are a warning to your servant,
a great reward for those who obey them. (Psalm 19:7-11 NLT)

Powerful Prayers Answered

by Hazel Straub

When we believe that Jesus is the Son of God, we have close relationship with Daddy God. As we pray according to his will and plans, he answers our prayers. He loves us and wants the best for us.  Prayer changes the impossible into reality. God listens and answers! Prayer preserves people from disaster and harm, averts wars, brings salvation, deliverance and restoration. Prayer is powerful!

I write these things to you who believe in the name of God’s Son so that you can know that you have eternal life. This is the confidence that we have in our relationship with God: If we ask for anything in agreement with his will, he listens to us. If we know that he listens to whatever we ask, we know that we have received what we asked from him. (1 John 5:13-15 CEB)

Hungry And Thirsty For God!

by Hazel Straub

Hungry for more of God? His Spirit stirs the hunger as we realize how dry and thirsty we are for more of his presence. He calls us to dig deep into his Word and to have a personal relationship with God our Father. Oh Lord, make me more hungry for you!

A David Psalm, When He Was out in the Judean Wilderness

God—you’re my God!
I can’t get enough of you!
I’ve worked up such hunger and thirst for God,
traveling across dry and weary deserts.
So here I am in the place of worship, eyes open,
drinking in your strength and glory.
In your generous love I am really living at last!
My lips brim praises like fountains.
I bless you every time I take a breath;
My arms wave like banners of praise to you. (Psalm 63:1-4 MSG)

Daddy God Cherishes You

by Hazel Straub

As one thinks in their heart so is he. Many times we live defeated lives because of how we think. We pay more attention to what the major news media says and our circumstances but not to what God says in the Bible. Our focus turns to the negative and misses how precious we are to God.

Look up and focus on Daddy God, who loves you and cherishes you, in all of his thoughts towards you. He is always thinking of you and is for you! With him on your side, you are victorious! When we surrender to him, he leads us in excellent paths.

Every single moment you (Daddy God) are thinking of me!
How precious and wonderful to consider
that you cherish me constantly in your every thought!
O God, your desires toward me are more
than the grains of sand on every shore!
When I awake each morning, you’re still with me. (Psalms 139:17-18 TPT)

God Our Everlasting Rock

by Hazel Straub

When we have confidence and reliance on God, leaning on him for our strength, he gives us peace (wholeness, completeness, prosperity, health). Though we are weak, God sustains us and is our Rock, always there for those of us, who trust in him. No matter what storms come, he keeps us safe.

You (God) will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You. So trust in the Lord (commit yourself to Him, lean on Him, hope confidently in Him) forever; for the Lord God is an everlasting Rock [the Rock of Ages]. (Isaiah 26:3-4 AMPC)

God Pleasing Rewards

by Hazel Straub

Worried and concerned about how you look to others and if they approve of you?

It is easy to get caught, trying to please people. However, the approval that is important comes from Yahweh God, our Father in Heaven. Pleasing people exhausts one, due to its demands for performance, compromise and control. It snares you into a spider web of deceit, with defeat and insecurity. God pleasing however, gives you your true identity, as you put your focus, actions, confidence and trust in him. You safely rest in the Lord, at peace because he is trustworthy and does not change. When we please God, the rewards are great.

The fear of man brings a snare, but whoever leans on, trusts in, and puts his confidence in the Lord is safe and set on high. Many crave and seek the ruler’s favor, but the wise man [waits] for justice from the Lord. (Proverbs 29:25-26 AMPC)
