How Can I Trust in the Lord?

by Denise Boggs
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not onto your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path” –  Trust In The Lord There is a reason why that verse says, “all your heart.”  Trusting in the Lord with all your heart means, He alone is the one you are trusting to direct you to the right path.  You simply ask Him and wait on the answer. I like to write out my questions and then record the answer in my journal.  When you ask the Lord for direction and He […]

When you just don’t understand…

by Denise Boggs
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not onto your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your path”.  – Proverbs 3:5 Do you have a difficult time trusting God? Do you worry, fear, or stress about circumstances in your daily life? If you’re having a difficult time trusting God, I want you to understand something. Take a look at your relationship with your earthy father. Like looking through dark sun glasses, you may be seeing your heavenly Father dimly.  The way we viewed our earthly father can hinder us from seeing […]

by Denise Boggs
“Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness…You have freed me when I was hemmed in and enlarged me when I was distressed…” Psalm 4:1 Have you ever felt hemmed in, trapped and unable to move?  At that moment you can call upon God, and He will answer you.  He will lift you up and free you from the present bondage.  He will never leave you or forsake you.

And Mary said, “My soul doeth magnify the Lord” Luke 1:46 What do you magnify?  Magnify, according to Strong’s Concordance means, to make or declare great.   Whatever we magnify becomes bigger and bigger in our mind.  If you magnify a problem then you can’t see the solution, all you see is the problem. Think about Mary’s problem. The angel came to her and said, “You will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son and shall call His name Jesus.”  (Luke 1:31) Mary’s response in Luke 1:38 was, “Behold, I am the handmaiden of the Lord; let it be to me […]

Faith to Stand Firmly Planted

by Denise Boggs
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”  I Corinthians 2:9 Your faith in God is the foundation that you stand on when times are hard.  The man that built his house upon the sand was swept away when the violent store came.  But, the man’s house that was built upon the rock stood strong.  You will be able to stand strong as you keep your faith in God and His promises. In every situation look to the Word of God, declare […]
