Suddenly...

Psalms 65:11 NKJ

11 You crown the year with Your goodness,

And Your paths drip with abundance.

Did you ever notice something and it seems so suddenly new, but then you discover that it's always been there. The only thing different is, that you finally became aware of it.

It's kind of like that when you finally become aware of how much Love, God has for you! Because when you do, you suddenly become aware of how good He is to His children.

When I read a verse like this and I think of all the things that God has done

for me personally and still God tells me that He wants to do more.

I'm constantly encouraged, because I know that no matter what God has good things in store for me and the my cup runs over.

Still Others will look at a verse like this and say the exact opposite.

As we go through life, most of us find ourselves in two different states of mind. Either were on top of the world and things are going great for us. Or were

down in the valley and things aren't going the way we like them to go, or

they could certainly be better to say the least.

1st state of mind

Sometimes in our lives we find ourselves at a point where we have experienced God's goodness. And then we going to what we think is a time of rest, or a count you blessings state of mind.

And after a period of time goes by, we begin to think ok God now what? How in

the world could you top what you accomplished for me last year, or last time.

And instead of resting on what God can do in your life. You go from resting,

to the try to figure it out mode, but yet once again.

2nd state of mind.

You've had things go good for you in the past. You have found yourself on the mountain, you've also found yourself in the valley, only this time it's different.

Because this time the valley seems bigger then it's been before. This time

it seems as though there's no way you can see the mountain. And instead of

resting on what God has done in the past for you. This time you don't think

He can figure it out for you and He needs your help?

Friends and family, doctors and others may have given you a less then encouraging outlook. And this time your circumstances seem so much

bigger than Gods possibilities!

Now I want you know that God has never left either situation that I have

described. His capabilities and desire to help have never wavered.

He still wants to and stands ready at a moments notice, to do miraculous

things in your lives, to show both His goodness and abundance!

Thing is, what are you expecting? What's coming out of your mouth?

Are you speaking words of life over your situation?

Luke 11:9-13 MSG

9 “Here’s what I’m saying:

Ask and you’ll get;

Seek and you’ll find;

Knock and the door will open.

10-13 “Don’t bargain with God. Be direct. Ask for what you need. This is not a cat-and-mouse, hide-and-seek game we’re in. If your little boy asks for a serving of fish, do you scare him with a live snake on his plate? If your little girl asks for an egg, do you trick her with a spider? As bad as you are, you wouldn’t think of such a thing—you’re at least decent to your own children. And don’t you think the Father who conceived you in love will give the Holy Spirit when you ask him?”
