​His Kindness Is All You Need

Dearly Beloved,

Often times life seems to take unplanned and seemingly “unfair” turns after we receive some phone calls that are like a “blessed mess” instead of a blessing. We all, at times, feel abandoned, alone and asking: “Has God forgotten me? Does He no longer care?”. The truth is that He does care for you and I and even for the birds of the air. The problem is that most times we may not understand why things happen the way they do, but if we will continue to love Him with all our heart and consistently trust Him in and through all our trials, we can be certain (and we will one day see) that God is in control and our situation is truly intended for good.

Paul said in 2 Corinthians 12:8-9 (CEV), “Three times I begged the Lord to make this suffering go away. 9 But he replied, “My kindness (my grace) is all you need. My power is strongest when you are weak.”

It doesn’t matter the circumstances that are before you today, it doesn’t matter who is against you, it doesn’t matter how long that problem has lasted, it doesn’t matter how thorny your path has become, HIS KINDNESS, HIS GRACE, is all that you need in that situation.

When you truly understand God’s love, you will have confidence in His Word. You will come to the realization that God is your sufficiency. You will come to the realization that HIS KINDNESS, HIS GRACE, is all that you need in that situation. You will come to the realization that for your daily needs, there is daily grace, for sudden needs there is sudden grace, and for overwhelming needs there is overwhelming grace.

It doesn’t matter the circumstances that are before you today, it doesn’t matter who is against you, it doesn’t matter how long that problem has lasted, it doesn’t matter how strained your relationship with anyone has become, it doesn’t matter how thorny your path has become, in everything and through it all, be at peace and look beyond your limitations, your circumstances and that blessed mess because God is walking with you – HIS KINDNESS, HIS GRACE, is all that you need in that situation. When doors look closed all around you, when your surroundings look limited, when you feel like you are all alone, remember, God is still at work in you. He has promised to walk with you all the days of your life.

God is bringing you out of your past, He’s bringing you peace for today, and creating a vision for your tomorrow

Today is not as bad as your situation will want you to think. It’s not as bad as your spouse will want to make you feel just to get at you. It’s not as bad as the economy of your nation will want to make you think, yours is to keep your hopes up. Keep expecting. Keep believing and keep looking at the Vistas of Hope in His Word. If you fall, get right back up and press forward with even greater determination because He promised to open doors of even greater opportunities in your life. Job, a man of great pain said, “though He slay me, yet will I trust”. Your enemy comes ONLY to steal your faith. Don’t let it happen – your faith is the victory (1 John 5:4).

May the Spirit of God lead you in the way that you should go for the rest of this month of March. May God unlocks the fullness of life to you. May He turn that which he has already provided for you in the past two months into enough, and more for you in March 2017. Your denial shall be turned into acceptance, chaos to order and confusion to clarity. May He turn your meal into a feast, your house into a home, and all your strangers into a friend. God is bringing you out of your past, He’s bringing you peace for today, and creating a vision for your tomorrow in Jesus Name.

In Him,
~Ali Papa.

  1. Some People Ali Papa believe God deliberately Afflicts us because they don’t understand the Scriptures with His Wisdom and empowering both of which we were not Born with, they have never asked for them so have not received, they believe God plans evil for us to teach us which He doesn’t but we do reap what we sow good and bad.

    Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of Men.

    Thankfully we are never alone in the Storms of Life as you shared Ali Papa and it is confirmed in the Scriptures below.

    Isaiah 43:1-3…… Fear not for I have redeemed thee I have called thee by thy name thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters I will be with thee and through the rivers they shall not overflow thee, when thou walkest through the fire thou shalt not be burned neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour….. (KJV)

    Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of Peace and not of Evil, to give you an expected end.

    Paul witnessed great things that could have led him to Worldly Pride, Satan was tormenting him, tempting him, Paul was dealing with his Carnal flesh which he shared about in Romans7.

    God was saying to Paul; when your flesh is weak than I Am strong in you and it is the same with us today, God tells us to put our Carnal Flesh to death by The Spirit (Romans 8 :12-15- Romans 6 -Colossians 3:4-6 -Galatians 5:24 -26) and Aim to be Perfected in Love.(Matthew 5:48 – Hebrews 6:1-Philippians 3:14-16 -2Timothy 3:17-1John 4:16-19- 1John 2:4-6- 2Corinthians 13:11) than we will walk as Jesus did in this World, Holy and Righteous.

    Christian Love- Anne.
