Scatter His Joy, Sow His Love…
My God, you formed me in my mother’s womb. (Psalm 139:13) I praise you, because I was no accident. Even in my momma’s womb, God had a plan for me. He also has a plan for you. The enemy can whisper lies to hinder us from being what God intended for us. For example, the lies he has always shouted more than whispered to me… Betsy, you are too shy to pray out loud, you will just start crying if you sing or pray for others, you don’t know the Bible well enough to quote the scriptures to help people… Well, guess what… I REBUKE YOU enemy, in the Name of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. If God tells me to speak, pray, sing… I will… The enemy may tell me I’m not enough, the world may tell me I’m not enough, but GOD says I AM enough. “I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knows very well.” Psalm 139:14
God says, We are fearfully and wonderfully made. He is the only one whose judgement matters. Stand tall, don’t quench the Spirit out of fear. “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7 Be a blessing to someone. Dig deeper into your Bible… hit your knees for your prayers… God will give you the wisdom of His word. I went to Sunday School when I was younger, I also did Bible Bowl… still yet, verses didn’t come easy for me to quote when I needed them. Lately, I’ve found myself remembering scriptures that I’ve only read one time. I owe it all to God. If the enemy is shouting/whispering such lies or others to you. Use Gods scriptures… to remember the TRUTH. There are tons of promises from God in His word. If the enemy says, “You can’t remember those scriptures”… just show him how committed you are to the Lord. Take a Bible everywhere you go, have a notebook full of scriptures wrote out for every circumstance that repeats over in your life or mind.
May He grant you according to your heart’s desire and fulfill ALL your purpose. Psalm 20:5
For by You, I can run against a troop. By my God, I can leap over a wall. As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him. For who is God except the Lord? And who is a rock, except our God? It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. Psalm 18:29-32
I had the privilege of praying for loved ones in the hospital Monday. Sunday, He was supposed to go to church and be anointed with oil and prayed over. He wasn’t able to. I knew all day Sunday and Monday morning exactly what the Lord wanted me to do. Hands trembling, notebook page of scriptures, tears running down my cheeks, broken words through tears… I prayed over my loved ones. “Where two or more are gathered in His name, there I am also” Praying for others is a privilege. “Love one another fervently with a pure heart.” 1 Peter 1:22 Gods children, YOU AND I need to know we are loved, loved by others yes, but more importantly to know they are loved by the KING.
Like the lyrics of a song that I enjoy, “I found my life, when I laid it down.” Come as you are to the King, lay down your life, your way… so you can fulfill the purpose He has for your life. I am humbled that God wants to use me for a purpose… for His purpose. I have been praying for more doors to open to continue to do His will. They will open for you too, you just need to ask.
So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you’ Matthew 17:20
Scatter His JOY with His words, Sow His LOVE with whatever gift He has blessed you with. Let’s build His Kingdom, one by one with scattering joy and sowing love. By sowing Gods love, you may just be the mustard seed they need to plant and let grow into a relationship with God.
Heavenly Father, I lift up my hands to praise you for my blessings, my loved ones, my health, and my country. I thank you for sending your only Son to die for me. I pray for those today who need your comfort, your healing, and your almighty peace. In Jesus precious name, Amen.
God Bless *Blessed Betsy*
