Intimately Involved

This feels like one of those messages I have taught before but if so there is someone who needs to reminded or taught anew today. In this new year the LORD wants YOU to know that you are not in this world alone fending for yourself. We are all familiar with the passage of scripture in Joshua 1 that reads God will never leave us nor forsake us. Some of us are so familiar with it to the point that it is no effective in our lives. It takes more than knowing the truth but Jesus said we must also continue in the truth. Today the LORD needs you to wake that word up with fresh anointing that goes a step further. You need to remember that word when you are in the midst of trials and tribulations and it seems like no cares or that no one is able to help you. It is then that you must speak it out to yourself not to be afraid or discouraged because God is right here in the midst of this trouble with you. The word says He is a very present help in time of trouble. To me that means when the trouble is present so is God.
Going a step further is to meditate on Psalm 37:23-24 The LORD directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the LORD holds them by the hand.
We should know that we don't have a distant far off Father who is unconcern by what happens in our everyday life. We serve a very loving, very protective, very powerful FATHER who is right here looking after every single matter of our lives be it great or small. Be Blessed, Manie
