Help Wanted…

1 Chronicles 16:11 “Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.”

Have you ever seen a sign in a window that says “Help Wanted” In reality this sign is offering more than just employment. It is signaling that someone has discovered that they can’t accomplish all they want by themselves.

You and I can be in a similar position when we look at life and think, “I don’t have the strength to accomplish all of this.” These are the times when we need to put out our “Help wanted” sign to God.

Our verse lets us know that He will respond. He will allow us to draw our strength from Him. Now there’s an amazing key hidden in this verse that will have you feeling strong more often than you feel weak. The key is to seek God’s face continually.

Now a face always looks forward. God’s face is the same. We find His face as we look towards our future. We will never find His face in our past. As we look for God in our future we are ensured that He will be our strength.

This week let God know that you need His help. Stop looking for Him in your past and resolutely seek Him in your future. As we do this strength will flow from heaven enabling us to flourish into the future. It’s not difficult; you just have to look in the right direction – to God in your future!

We love you and believe in you.

No Surprise Here…

Revelation 3:8 “I know all the things you do, and I have opened a door for you that no one can close. You have little strength, yet you obeyed my word and did not deny me.” [NLT]

Ladies appreciate a gentleman opening the door for them and men consider it an honor to do so. When a door is opened it enables us to move faster, easier and safer to our destination.

Our verse today says that God notices all the things we do and He moves ahead of us opening doors. When God does this for us we can be assured that it is impossible for anyone to close the door He has opened.  Even when we feel weak we can trust Him enough to obey and walk through.

This week remember that God is seeing everything we do. He is preparing our future by opening the right doors ahead of us. With Him we will be able to pass through quickly and safely staying true to our God destination.

Today, dare to believe that it’s time for God’s open doors in your life that no one can close! Advance though them even when you feel weak – God is upholding you!
