Let’s Give Thanks To The Lord Today

prayer

Psalms 96:3

Declare His glory among the nations, His wonderful works among all peoples.

Lord, I praise You and honor You because You are a God who saves, heals and forgives our debts. Thank You, Lord my God for all of Your blessings which You have showered on us with, for we have what we need because of You. Thank You, Lord Jesus, for Your great salvation, for by Your stripes we are healed and taking our punishment upon Yourself so that we may have eternal life through faith in You and be with You forever.

Isaiah 53:3

But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.

Romans 5:8

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Your love O Lord made You die for us and I pray that my love for You may always be a living sacrifice showing how much You mean to me. May the name of Jesus Christ be exalted, praised, honored and glorified forever and ever. In Jesus name, I say these things, Amen.

Jesus Wants To Carry Your Load (Anxiety, Concerns, Fear, And Nervousness) Of Life If You Let Him

jesus will carry your burdens

Psalms 55:22

Cast your burden on the Lord, and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.

Insight:

The Hebrew word for burden is yehab (ye-hawb’) meaning a lot, the care, what is given (by Providence).

The Lord has given or assigned believers to certain trials and testings which when you are in the midst of them, give it back to the Lord in prayer who will uphold you through it (1 Peter 5:7 “casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.”) This burden is given to all believers for our good to make us grow in the faith and to learn to rely solely on the Lord who will deliver us from our trials. Every believer has a condition in life (care, burden) for the purpose of drawing us nearer to Christ and to show us His faithfulness so whatever you are going through, give thanks to the Lord in advance knowing that He will deliver you and build up your faith so that you can help someone else whom He will send your way to encourage him/her with your testimony of God’s love and rescue. The strength that you need to find to endure is found only in Jesus Christ who will sustain you by holding you up with His righteous right hand and not let you fall (apostatize).


Psalms 94:18

If I say, “My foot is slipping,” Your faithful love will support me, LORD.

Psalms 37:24

Even if he trips, he will not fall headlong, for the LORD holds his hand.


Please read these verses below in its entirety to grasp how much Jesus loves you and the promise He made to those who seek first His kingdom and His righteousness. Whatever you are going through, know that Jesus has promised to take care of you.

Matthew 6:26-33

26 Look at the birds of the sky: They don’t sow or reap or gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren’t you worth more than they? 27 Can any of you add a single cubit to his height by worrying? 28 And why do you worry about clothes? Learn how the wildflowers of the field grow: they don’t labor or spin thread. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was adorned like one of these! 30 If that’s how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and thrown into the furnace tomorrow, won’t He do much more for you—you of little faith? 31 So don’t worry, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ 32 For the idolaters eagerly seek all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be provided for you.

The Flaming Arrows of Depression

flaming arrows

1 Kings 19:1-5

Ahab told Jezebel everything that Elijah had done and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword. 2 So Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, “May the gods punish me and do so severely if I don’t make your life like the life of one of them by this time tomorrow!” 3 Then Elijah became afraid and immediately ran for his life. When he came to Beer-sheba that belonged to Judah, he left his servant there, 4 but he went on a day’s journey into the wilderness. He sat down under a broom tree and prayed that he might die. He said, “I have had enough! Lord, take my life, for I’m no better than my fathers.” 5 Then he lay down and slept under the broom tree.


Depression to a Christian is like Kryptonite to Superman. It makes one weak as what we see happened to Elijah. Elijah was a man of faith. He prayed that it wouldn’t rain for 3 ½ years (James 5:17-18) and it happened. He fought with the prophets of Baal and won victoriously, but what happened to Elijah happens to all of us. Satan uses “depression” as one of his greatest weapons of spiritual warfare for believers. Depression completely disables your faith, trust, and confidence in the Lord Jesus Christ and makes one lose all hope.

Depression works by redirecting our focus away from Jesus and putting it on the mountain of troubles which seem dire and impossible to overcome. What is the solution to depression? The solution is the promises found in the Bible. We know 100% that Jesus’ promises come to pass and the more we read the Word of God, the stronger our faith becomes since we are filling our minds with His promises which gives hope no matter how unconquerable our troubles might seem, resolve not to worry and go to Jesus in prayer and seek His face (Philippians 4:6-7) and you will see God’s deliverance. When Jesus gives you rest from your troubles and comforts you, remember to comfort those who are going through the same thing just like you did and were comforted. There is always hope in Jesus Christ.

Below are some of God’s promises that will encourage you not to give up.


Psalms 55:22

Cast your burden on the Lord, and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.

Joshua 1:9

Haven’t I commanded you: be strong and courageous? Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

John 10:28

I give them eternal life, and they will never perish—ever! No one will snatch them out of My hand.

Matthew 11:28

“Come to Me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

Philippians 4:6-7

6 Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
