God always puts just the right thing in our eyesight at just the right moment, as I was standing at the edge of the lake taking pictures when a group of 4 baby Canadian geese swam by ,but where was mama? surely she didn't think they were big enough to go it alone? but I'm sure she was close by watching me as well & standing by ready to attack if need be, isn't that the way we are with God? there are times when we feel we're having to go it alone but he is there with an all seeing eye, when we're in the middle of our storm he stirs up the faith within us & reminds us that we are covered with his wings ,did you know that when you have faith not only are you not alone, but faith does not come alone , it comes with love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness & goodness? we are truly never alone!+

do not be so quick to dismiss your pain for pain causes us to look up as David did, pain gives us strength to stand firm when storms come, pain stirs up the word within us & causes us to only go deeper, the enemy comes to steal kill & destroy, it is his mission to devour you, little does he know that what he meant for harm only pushed you to a higher level where you'd be in the right place at the right time to receive blessings beyond your wildest dreams, if he only knew he was setting the stage for that next door to open!
so the next time someone or something causes you pain they are just setting you up to draw closer to God as David did , causing you to go deeper in your faith allowing that new door to open in your life so instead of trying to figure out all the whys, simply say THANK YOU!

Is the enemy under your feet? don't let him bring you down, the word tells us we have authority to put him under our feet! " Thou hast madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands, thou hast put all things under his feet! once you realize who the 'whoever is" & put him under your feet, you'll begin to walk in Victory!

Praise ye the Lord Praise the Lord oh my soul while I live will praise the Lord I will sing praises to my God while I have any being
lets focus on “while I have nay being I will praise him” the fact that you woke this morning is proof you exist, while I have any being is the pure essence of existing & being independent of our own minds & have actual knowledge of it
if you woke this morning you have no reason not to praise him ,& if you woke in your right mind , you certainly have something to praise him for
Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee wither thou wouldest not. John 21;18
the mere fact that you exist is a gift from him, the mere face that he exist he deserves your praise today!
JESUS I GIVE YOU PRAISE!

And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit(.James 5:18 )
rain can be troublesome sometimes especially if we've somewhere to go, just like our bodies need water to stay nourished, refreshed, to push impurities out, we need the rain!
(Hebrews 6:7) For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God
even in a dry & dusty land rain came bring forth life, hope & restoration, there's another rain that brings hope, life & restoration, begin to praise him & let him pour out that latter rain on you today
(Hosea 6:3) Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth

Oh God thou art my God, early will I seek thee, my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land where no water is
To see thy power and thy glory so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary
Because thy loving kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee
Thus will I bless thee while I live, I will lift up my hands in thy name
My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips
When I remember thee upon my bed and meditate on thee in the night watches
Because thy has been my help therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice
My soul followeth hard after thee thy right hand upholdeth me
These few verses pretty much sums it up that we should think about him morning, noon and night, if you woke in your right mind, you should praise him before your feet hit the floor for it was his mercy that granted you another day, were you able to take your own self to the bathroom, as you savored the aroma of the coffee going up through your nose did you think to praise him? did you think to thank him for that hedge of protection as you go about your day? As the sun began to set did you think about all he’d done for you that day, did you set things right before you said goodnight? for after all we’re not promised tomorrow,thus will I bless thee while I live I will lift up my hands in thy name!
