Dare To Trust God!

by Hazel Straub

When you know God, believe and trust him to conquer the giants in your life. Do not depend on your natural senses but on God’s character, knowing he will never fail you. It is time to act like young David, who knew God had anointed him as King of Israel and he was not yet king, so he would not die at the giant’s hand. God had helped David prevail against a lion and a bear, who had attacked his sheep. The giant lost because David had a close relationship with God and the giant taunting Israel and the God of Israel worshipped idols and trusted his own strength.

Dare to believe God and risk all for God because he makes you a winner.

Your servant killed both the lion and the bear; and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be like one of them, for he has defied the armies of the living God! David said, The Lord Who delivered me out of the paw of the lion and out of the paw of the bear, He will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine. And Saul said to David, Go, and the Lord be with you! Then said David to the Philistine, You come to me with a sword, a spear, and a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the ranks of Israel, Whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will smite you and cut off your head. And I will give the corpses of the army of the Philistines this day to the birds of the air and the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and struck down the Philistine and slew him. But no sword was in David’s hand. So he ran and stood over the Philistine, took his sword and drew it out of its sheath, and killed him, and cut off his head with it. When the Philistines saw that their mighty champion was dead, they fled. (1 Samuel 37:36-37; 45-46; 50-51 AMPC)

My King And God’s Excellent Greatness

by Hazel Straub

Today, we praise you Lord God and meditate on how you never fail us. There is no one that loves us like you and shows us kindness and mercy.

My King and God: Your magnificent splendor and the miracles of your majesty
are my constant meditation.
Your awe-inspiring acts of power have everyone talking!
I’m telling people everywhere about your excellent greatness!
Our hearts bubble over as we celebrate the fame
of your marvelous beauty, bringing bliss to our hearts.
We shout with ecstatic joy over your breakthrough for us.
You’re kind and tenderhearted to those who don’t deserve it
and very patient with people who fail you.
Your love is like a flooding river overflowing its banks with kindness.
God, everyone sees your goodness,
for your tender love is blended into everything you do. (Psalm 145:5-9 TPT)

The LORD Is Our Song!

by Hazel Straub

Water refreshes and brings delight to our souls. The Lord is our comfort, salvation, strength and song. Because of this we have great joy!

And in that day you will say, I will give thanks to You, O Lord; for though You were angry with me, Your anger has turned away, and You comfort me.
Behold, God, my salvation! I will trust and not be afraid, for the Lord God is my strength and song; yes, He has become my salvation.
Therefore with joy will you draw water from the wells of salvation. (Isaiah 12:1-3 AMPC)

God My Shelter

by Hazel Straub

There is no one like our God! He is our shelter and does wonderful things for us.

But as for me, how good it is to be near God!
I have made the Sovereign Lord my shelter,
and I will tell everyone about the wonderful things you do. (Psalm 73:28 NLT)

God’s Character

by Hazel Straub

The character of God includes righteousness, holiness, integrity, reliability, fulfilling his word, lovingkindness, mercy and grace. He does not treat us as we deserve but is merciful. When we know him, we have no problem trusting and relying on him. He is our refuge and strength.

God is not a man, so he does not lie.
He is not human, so he does not change his mind.
Has he ever spoken and failed to act?
Has he ever promised and not carried it through? (Numbers 23:19 NLT)

Happy Pentecost!

by Hazel Straub

Happy Pentecost, 50 days since Passover, when Jesus our Passover Lamb died for us and took our sins on himself. What we could not do he did for us. (50 represents Jubilee lost inheritances restored, debts cancelled and slaves set free.) Redemption is a free gift for all who receive Jesus. On the Feast, 120 people were waiting and praying to God.

On the day of Pentecost all the believers were meeting together in one place. Suddenly, there was a sound from heaven like the roaring of a mighty windstorm, and it filled the house where they were sitting. Then, what looked like flames or tongues of fire appeared and settled on each of them. And everyone present was filled with the Holy Spirit and began speaking in other languages, as the Holy Spirit gave them this ability. (Acts 2:1-4 NLT)

The Holy Spirit changed the believers and filled them with boldness. They went outside and a crowd gathered. People there in Jerusalem for the Feast heard the sounds and gathered to hear the believers in Jesus, speaking in the hearers’ native languages. Peter, who had 50 days earlier, been fearful and denied knowing Jesus, boldly preached the good news of Jesus.  The baptism of the Holy Spirit transformed Peter and the others, making them bold for Christ. As a result 3,000 people gave their lives to the Lord Jesus. Holy Spirit lives inside of us and changes us from the inside!

God’s Love Pours Into Us

The Love Of God

by Hazel Straub

God our Father loves us and adopted us into his family, when we believe in his Son Jesus the Christ. His love pours into us, so we can pour it out to others.

Those who are loved by God, let his love continually pour from you to one another, because God is love. Everyone who loves is fathered by God and experiences an intimate knowledge of him. The one who doesn’t love has yet to know God, for God is love. The light of God’s love shined within us when he sent his matchless Son into the world so that we might live through him. This is love: He loved us long before we loved him. It was his love, not ours. He proved it by sending his Son to be the pleasing sacrificial offering to take away our sins. (1 John 4:7-10 TPT)

Prayer For Showing God’s Love

by Hazel Straub

Lord, holy is your name, Thank you for loving me. I say yes, Lord, for all you have for me today.

Open the eyes of my heart, so I can see others with your eyes. Open the ears of my heart, so I can hear your heart for them. Fill me with your love, Lord, so I can show your love, to everyone that crosses my path today. I say, yes, I am your ambassador, God.

So be it, in the name of Jesus!

Feed the hungry,
and help those in trouble.
Then your light will shine out from the darkness,
and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon.
The Lord will guide you continually,
giving you water when you are dry
and restoring your strength.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
like an ever-flowing spring.
Some of you will rebuild the deserted ruins of your cities.
Then you will be known as a rebuilder of walls
and a restorer of homes. (Isaiah 58:10-12 NLT)

Live By Faith In God

by Hazel Straub

We are called to live by faith (confidence and trust) in God. Do not look at the circumstances or allow fear to overtake you but keep your focus on the Lord. God promises that he will never leave or forsake you. He is your provision and carries you. His Word is true. Trust him and know that he brings you abundant life!

And before he (Jesus) had finished speaking, people arrived from Jairus’ house and pushed through the crowd to give Jairus the news: “There’s no need to trouble the master any longer—your daughter has died.” But Jesus refused to listen to what they were told and said to the Jewish official, “Don’t yield to fear. All you need to do is to keep on believing.” (Mark 5: 35-36 TPT) Jesus then raised a 12-year-old girl back to life.

Do Not Give Up!

by Hazel Straub

No matter what difficulties that you go through, they will turn out for good. During hard times, we realize that we need help and turn to God for strength and wisdom. Growth happens as we go through the tests, gaining a testimony of how God brought us through, what appeared insurmountable.

Don’t run from tests and hardships, brothers and sisters. As difficult as they are, you will ultimately find joy in them; if you embrace them, your faith will blossom under pressure and teach you true patience as you endure. And true patience brought on by endurance will equip you to complete the long journey and cross the finish line—mature, complete, and wanting nothing. If you don’t have all the wisdom needed for this journey, then all you have to do is ask God for it; and God will grant all that you need. He gives lavishly and never scolds you for asking. (James 1:2-5 VOICE)
