But now, this is what the Lord, your Creator says, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel,
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you from captivity; I have called you by name; you are Mine!
Isaiah 43:1, AMP
‘Do not be afraid, Only Believe!’
Throughout this series, God is lovingly counseling, correcting, challenging, and coaching your faith, vision, and mindset.
- Faith: Your faith is being purified by fire to become fearless. You take God at His word and believe in yourself.
- Vision. Your view of your situation shifts from what your eyes can see to look ahead to a glorious future.
- Mindset. You gain a new perspective and attitude of your situation.
You are spiritually matured so that you can choose joy, claim, proclaim and testify James 1:2, saying,
Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy.
Each message, sermon, and daily devotional are transforming the inner you, the cracking of your seed to sprout new growth and development.
You are taking off your ‘old’ sandals, old ways of living, your old mindset, character, and conduct.
You are getting fitted for your new SHOES from Jesus (salvation, humility, obedience, empathy, and shalom) to trample upon snakes and scorpions that nothing will harm you.
Despite the pain of the process, you are equipped and empowered with the wisdom keys to keep your eyes focused on Christ, His purpose, His promises, and His divine plan to prosper you and never to harm you, to give you hope and a great future.
We all know that many bad things are happening right now in the world. But always remember, there is a “Miracle in the Mess and a Testimony in the Test!”
But God is saying, this problem is an opportunity for unspeakable joy, unshakable faith, and greater glory.
Nothing is impossible.
You are a miracle.
And this is your testimony.
Live it fully!
There are beauty, blessings, and breakthroughs out of this brokenness and trials!
There is a miracle in this mess, and testimony shall come out of this test!
There is success in the process.
There is wealth in Potter’s plan.
There is a purpose in pain.
There is a promotion for the shame.
Every difficult journey leads to a beautiful destination.
Out of the ashes, beauty shall rise.
Out of the cocoon, the butterfly emerges.
Out of coal, a diamond sparkle.
Out painful sand in the oyster, form a pretty pearl.
Out of the pressing of grapes, new wine flows.
Out of the crushing of olives, there is the new oil of anointing.
Out of the milling of wheat comes the finest flour.
Out of the fire comes the purest gold.
Out of crucifixion was our gift of salvation.
Out of you and me, emerge a glorious and prosperous nation!
No mess, no miracle.
No test, no testimony.
No cocoon, no butterfly.
No pressure, no diamond.
The weapons are formed but can not prosper, and every tongue that rises against you is condemned. Though they plot evil against you, make negative utterances, and devise wicked schemes, they cannot succeed. What the enemy intended for evil against you, to hurt you and cause you harm, God shall use it for good.
The battle that was intended to kill, steal, and destroy you, will instead bless you. The storm shall strengthen your resilience, deepen your faith in God, grace you with grit, enlarge your territory, challenge you to a new capacity, increase your capability, explode your potential, and catapult you to higher dimensions.
Let’s celebrate the process, the concept, deliverance, rebirth of a new you, and a new trajectory for your life.
You and your story shall be someone’s miracle and testimony.
By His grace, and all for the Glory of God!
So All within me, Praise His Holy Name!
Amen. Beloved. A happy new day.
Be motivated today to see challenges in a new way, as opportunities and possibilities.
Impossible is nothing… Instead, it is your daily affirmation.
Instead of crying, why me, say why not me to be tested, prepared and made ready to experience God’s mind-blowing miracle?
Change the narrative and be ‘choiceful.‘
Choose to see the situation through faith rather than fear.
Choose to be courageous and confident as a Child of God.
God is watching over you, keeping you, and caring for all your needs.
Keep your eyes on God. He is your Keeper and Sustainer.
Have a blessed day.
You are loved.
You are not alone.
Come, Chayah, with us.
Leave a word to encourage some today.
Share hope, joy, a prayer, love, peace, laugher, good vibes… choose to live fully!
I am tested positive for my testimony.
I am tested positive for my victory.
I am tested positive for His glory.
I am the miracle in this mess.
I am in this miry pit for my message.
I am broken to be blessed.
I am redeemed and at rest.
He knows my name best.
I am faithful and fearless!
Impossible is nothing.
I am a miracle.
This is my testimony.
God is saying to you today. There is a Miracle in the Mess and Testimony in the Test! I am your Creator God. When You’re Between a Rock and a Hard Place, I am with you to deliver you. I have called you by name. You’re mine. I am giving you a Promise of Restoration as written in Isaiah 43:1-2.
Eternal One: Remember who created you, O Jacob?
Who shaped you, O Israel?
See, you have nothing to fear. I, who made you, will take you back.
I have chosen you, named you as My own.
When you face stormy seas I will be there with you with endurance and calm;
you will not be engulfed in raging rivers.
If it seems like you’re walking through fire with flames licking at your limbs,
keep going; you won’t be burned.
Now, this is what Yahweh says:
“Listen, Jacob, to the One who created you,
Israel, to the one who shaped who you are.
Do not fear,
for I, your Kinsman-Redeemer, will rescue you.
I have called you by name, and you are mine.
When you pass through the deep, stormy sea,
you can count on me to be there with you.
When you pass through raging rivers,
You will not drown.
When you walk through persecution like fiery flames,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not harm you,
But now, God’s Message,
the God who made you in the first place, Jacob,
the One who got you started, Israel:
“Don’t be afraid, I’ve redeemed you.
I’ve called your name. You’re mine.
When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you.
When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down.
When you’re between a rock and a hard place, it won’t be a dead-end—Because I am God, your personal God, The Holy of Israel, your Savior.
I paid a huge price for you: all of Egypt, with rich Cush and Seba thrown in!
That’s how much you mean to me!
That’s how much I love you!
I’d sell off the whole world to get you back, trade the creation just for you.”
Isaiah 43:1-4, MSG
God is saying to you today. There is a Miracle in the Mess and Testimony in the Test! I daily load you with benefits. My mercy and anointing are fresh and new each day. I am your Redeemer God. I am your Healer. I am your Savior. I am your Provider. I am your Protector. I lavish you with my love, goodness, and blessings.
Declare and stand on Psalm 103:2-4.
Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits; Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases; Who redeems your life from the pit, Who crowns you with loving-kindness and compassion.
Bless and affectionately praise the Lord, O my soul, And do not forget any of His benefits; Who forgives all your sins,
Who heals all your diseases; Who redeems your life from the pit, Who crowns you lavishly with lovingkindness and tender mercy.
O my soul, come, praise the Eternal; sing a song from a grateful heart; sing and never forget all the good He has done.
Despite all your many offenses, He forgives and releases you.
More than any doctor, He heals your diseases.
He reaches deep into the pit to deliver you from death.
He crowns you with unfailing love and compassion like a king.
Yahweh, you are my soul’s celebration.
How could I ever forget the miracles of kindness you’ve done for me?
You kissed my heart with forgiveness, in spite of all I’ve done.
You’ve healed me inside and out from every disease.
You’ve rescued me from hell and saved my life.
You’ve crowned me with love and mercy.
O my soul, bless God.
From head to toe, I’ll bless his holy name!
O my soul, bless God, don’t forget a single blessing!
He forgives your sins—every one.
He heals your diseases—every one.
He redeems you from hell—saves your life!
He crowns you with love and mercy—a paradise crown.
He wraps you in goodness—beauty eternal.
He renews your youth—you’re always young in his presence.
Psalm 103:2-5, MSG
God is saying to you today. There is a Miracle in the Mess and Testimony in the Test! I have searched for you. I have found you. I know you. I am with you always. I live in you.
Declare Ps 139: 6-10
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is too high, I cannot attain to it. Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend to heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the dawn, If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea, Even there Your hand will lead me, And Your right hand will lay hold of me.
It is the most amazing feeling to know how deeply You know me, inside and out;
the realization of it is so great that I cannot comprehend it.
Can I go anywhere apart from Your Spirit?
Is there anywhere I can go to escape Your watchful presence?
If I go up into heaven, You are there.
If I make my bed in the realm of the dead, You are there.
If I ride on the wings of morning,
if I make my home in the most isolated part of the ocean,
Even then You will be there to guide me;
Your right hand will embrace me, for You are always there.
This is just too wonderful, deep, and incomprehensible!
Your understanding of me brings me wonder and strength.
Where could I go from your Spirit?
Where could I run and hide from your face?
If I go up to heaven, you’re there!
If I go down to the realm of the dead, you’re there too!
If I fly with wings into the shining dawn, you’re there!
If I fly into the radiant sunset, you’re there waiting!
Wherever I go, your hand will guide me;
your strength will empower me.
God, investigate my life;
get all the facts firsthand.
I’m an open book to you;
even from a distance, you know what I’m thinking.
You know when I leave and when I get back;
I’m never out of your sight.
You know everything I’m going to say
before I start the first sentence.
I look behind me and you’re there,
then up ahead and you’re there, too—
your reassuring presence, coming and going.
This is too much, too wonderful—
I can’t take it all in!
Is there anyplace I can go to avoid your Spirit?
to be out of your sight?
If I climb to the sky, you’re there!
If I go underground, you’re there!
If I flew on morning’s wings
to the far western horizon,
You’d find me in a minute—
you’re already there waiting!
Then I said to myself, “Oh, he even sees me in the dark!
At night I’m immersed in the light!”
It’s a fact: darkness isn’t dark to you;
night and day, darkness and light, they’re all the same to you.
Psalm 139:1-12, MSG.
God is saying to you today. There is a Miracle in the Mess and Testimony in the Test! You may be denied, demoted, dejected, disappointed, disapproved, depressed, defeated, divorced, diseased, destructed, dishonored, disillusioned. Still, God says, “I will redeem and restore you, and you shall have Double for all your troubles!”
Declare ISAIAH 61:7
INSTEAD OF SHAME AND DISHONOR, YOU WILL ENJOY A DOUBLE SHARE OF HONOR. YOU WILL POSSESS A DOUBLE PORTION OF PROSPERITY IN YOUR LAND, AND EVERLASTING JOY WILL BE YOURS.
Because you received a double dose
of shame and dishonor,
you will inherit a double portion
of endless joy and everlasting bliss!
Many called you disgraced and defiled and said that shame should be your share of things.
Yet you suffered doubly and lived in disgrace;
So double will be your share, and with joy everlasting.
God is saying to you today. There is a Miracle in the Mess and Testimony in the Test! I have a breaking news story. I am announcing freedom to all captives. I am announcing that despite it all, this year is your fear for His grace and favor. This is your season of the great exchange as I trade your ashes for beauty, gladness for sadness, double for your trouble.
The Spirit of God, the Master, is on me
because God anointed me.
He sent me to preach good news to the poor,
heal the heartbroken,
Announce freedom to all captives,
pardon all prisoners.
God sent me to announce the year of his grace—
a celebration of God’s destruction of our enemies—
and to comfort all who mourn,
To care for the needs of all who mourn in Zion,
give them bouquets of roses instead of ashes,
Messages of joy instead of news of doom,
a praising heart instead of a languid spirit.
Rename them “Oaks of Righteousness”
planted by God to display his glory.
They’ll rebuild the old ruins,
raise a new city out of the wreckage.
They’ll start over on the ruined cities,
take the rubble left behind and make it new.
You’ll hire outsiders to herd your flocks
and foreigners to work your fields,
But you’ll have the title “Priests of God,”
honored as ministers of our God.
You’ll feast on the bounty of nations,
you’ll bask in their glory.
Because you got a double dose of trouble
and more than your share of contempt,
Your inheritance in the land will be doubled
and your joy go on forever.
Isaiah 61:1-7, MSG
Heavenly Father, Almighty God, Abba, I worship you. I exalt you. You are the Great and worthy of every praise and glory. Thank you for reminding me that this situation is not what it seems but will be used to display your glory.
Thank you for revealing that You are a God of Second Chances and The God who is with me through the Change process, helping me overcome my change resistance and gain change readiness. Lord, You are here to give me a second, third… tenth chance that even my mistakes You will use for my good and Your Glory.
I declare Isaiah 54:17, KJV saying,
No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.
Abba, my Heavenly Father, You hold me in Your Righteous Right Hand. You have a prosperous, purposeful, and productive future for me despite my setbacks, the real struggles of life, and all my shortcomings. My protection, my promotion, and my provision come from You, alone, Lord. You are always with me to redeem me from the pit and position me in Your palace.
So I dry my tears, straighten my crown as it got a shift in the storm, muscle up a mustard seed of faith, and believe that My God, The One Who Made The Heavens and The Earth, He shall give me a double portion of blessings for all my shame, sufferings, and sacrifices.
I declare, “In the name of Jesus, I boldly and faithfully claim… A double portion of anointing, a double portion of healing. A double portion of prosperity. A double portion of the inheritance. A double portion of favor, a double portion of honor. A double portion of love. A double portion of joy. A double portion of peace. A super-double portion of His Glory for my Chayah! In the name of Jesus, everything is Double-Double!”
Lord, what an excellent feeling to know that I am not fighting this battle, and I will not face this unknown future alone. I can trust you to be with me, cover me, strengthen me, comfort me, rescue me, and save me. I am confident that my All-Knowing, Unlimited Supply, Faithful, Unconditional Loving, All-Powerful, Sovereign, Only Wise God is with me, and He will never leave me nor forsake me. I believe that when we pray to You, Lord, you will hear us, heal us, protect us, help us, and guide us. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Return to Chayah, update your journal, and mark today’s lesson completed.
Have a blessed, joyful, cheerful, and wonderful day.
You are loved.
