It’s Already Blessed By Tammy Nicole Glover

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Matthew 6:33 NIV

Some of us are wondering where our blessings are but if we look at ourselves we will realize that we haven’t done what God has called us to do. We have been waiting on God when He has been waiting on us to move. There are a lot of us that know what God has called us to do, yet we haven’t started. We want to do it and we have good intentions to do it but we find excuses not to do it. We let fear rule instead of our faith. Some of us have just flat out chosen to ignore what God has called us to do. We can’t see how what He has called us to do is important or relevant. We are comfortable where we are and we don’t want to put forth the effort to do anything anyway. Then there are some that don’t know what God has called them to do and aren’t trying to find out. They’re way too busy being led by the cares of this world.

Please, listen to me when I tell you that if God has called you to do something it is important. He has already blessed it. Yes, you will have to work. No, you won’t be able to do it on your own but then again you’re not supposed to. Do you realize that when we ignore God’s call, we are not only being disobedient but we are being selfish? God’s calling on your life is not about you. It’s about being a blessing to someone else. You are walking in love when you answer His call. Someone is in desperate need of whatever God has called you to do. Some of us are the product of someone else being obedient to God’s call. We may have found out about Jesus because someone was obedient enough to tell us. Our lives may have been saved because someone was obedient enough to pray for us. We may have been encouraged during a difficult time because someone was obedient enough to encourage us.

Answering God’s call is not something to take lightly. God’s call on your life is vital. If you are a believer, you are a soldier in God’s kingdom. We all have our parts to play. We are one body made up of many parts. If one part of the body isn’t working then the whole body is weakened. When one part is blessed then the whole body is blessed. Don’t miss out on your call and miss out on your blessing.

“Therefore my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:58

God is With You By Tammy Nicole Glover

“Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?” Psalm 139:7 NIV

God is with you. People will oftentimes say this to bring comfort to someone in time of need. However, these are not just mere words of comfort, God really is with you, always.

Yes, He is with you when you’re hurting. He is with you when you’re in danger and He’s with you when you are stressed out. He is with you when the sun is shining and everything is going your way too.

Sometimes, we forget that He’s also with us when we complain, when we gossip, when we judge others without knowing the full story. He’s with us when we’re angry and refuse to forgive. He’s with us when we turn our backs on someone in need. He’s even with us when we’re somewhere we’re not supposed to be, with someone we’re not supposed to be with and doing something we’re not supposed to be doing.

Thankfully, nothing we do ever shocks God. He knows us better than we know ourselves. We also have a merciful God. We are able to come to him to not only comfort us when we’re hurting but to ask for forgiveness and receive His forgiveness through his Son Christ Jesus.

God is with you. He loves you. He doesn’t want you to ever be afraid to come to Him for whatever you need. You are never alone.

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39 NIV
