Morning with Ebenezer


Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!  Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:4-7 NIV

One of the things that the enemy does to Christians is giving them reasons not to rejoice in the Lord. Many Christians concentrate on their problems and forget counting their blessings. There are some people in the Church that don't know how to appreciate the lives that God has given them. 

It is not bad thing to seek for more in life but we need to learn to appreciate what God has done for us while we are seeking to be more. We need to rejoice and be thankful for what we have and stop complaining for what we don't have. You will never experience the joy of the Lord in life if your mouth is full of complaints. You will never experience the peace of the Lord in your life if you constant live in fear.

If there is something that bothers you, know that the Lord is there to help you. The Bible teaches us not to allow any situation undermine us. It says we need to pray and ask God for everything we need, and always giving thanks for what we have. 

This morning, I want to ask you to take a moment and thank God for everything in your life. You may be struggling in a lot of areas and maybe you haven't reached where you have wanted to be in life. But as long as you are still alive there is a room for you to improve and grow that you maybe more in life.

There is a room for you to become a person that you always desire to be. You need to be strong and try your best that you may not give up on yourself. The most important thing is that don't give up on God. If God did not answer your prayer yesterday, just know that He stayed quiet; because He had a better plan for you. So continue praying while allowing His will to be fulfilled in your life; and in His time He will make everything beautiful for you.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Dear Father, I thank You for my life and all people who are inside of it. I pray that You may bless me with all of your spiritual blessings according to your glorious riches in Christ. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
