“HE WANTS THE BEST FOR YOU”


He wants the best for you. So take His Hand and see where He takes you. Let’s go to:

Psalms 27:8 ”[When thou saidst], Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek.”

when (Strong’s 3588) assuredly, rightly, truly or therefore;
saidst (from Strong’s 559) to say, command, name, report, publish, demand, call or utter;
seek (Strong’s 1245) to search out, strive after or desire;
face (Strong’s 6440) the face (as it turns), against, anger, battle, countenance or endure;
heart (Strong’s 3820) the heart, the feelings, will, intellect, mind or wisdom; (from Strong’s 3824) the heart, the feelings, will, intellect, mind or wisdom; (from Strong’s 3823) enclosed with fat, transport with love, be wise or mind;
said (from Strong’s 559) to say, command, name, report, publish, demand, call or utter;
Lord (Strong’s from 1962) to exist, be or become or come to pass; (Strong’s 3068) self-existent, Eternal and Jehovah.

Go to Him just like He has shown you always in the word and published for you in it to seek after Him and align your will so it is with His. That way you cannot go wrong. Seek Him out especially when you are under enemy attack and realize this will happen right when you are called to do what He wants you to do. Know that putting your mind and heart focused on the positive and with Him, it will be easier for you to see what He wants you to do. He wants you to be happy and free in every day you are here so remember to live each day with Him and for Him. Remember that He is that Eternal One that will never leave you and is always there for you.

The Word shows you time and time again that those that overcame for Him went through so many obstacles and dear God even took them around a different way because in the direct route and line of fire, they may not have been able to handle something. So remember this just like the children He was taking out of Israel with first Moses to the Promised Land would get sidetracked along the way. Be like Moses, and endure to help out those in your life that may get sidetracked, but keep your focus on Him because He will never leave you or fail you.

Tell Him how much you love Him. Thank Him for the dear family and friends that He has put here for you and you for them to help along the way. He will use you in their lives, too, if you let Him. He is sharing His Love through you so be open to giving of yourself.

Finally, He wants the best for you. So want the best for you, too, and start off each day with Him. Talk to Him throughout the day and praise Him for all the good things in your life. He truly loves you so much and is so glad that you are so strong in Him. He is the ONE sitting on the Throne is right there for you – HE IS Almighty God the One that cares so much for you and is always there. He is willing and able to help you if you just let Him. Tell Him how much you care and make His Day.

Thanks dear God for Your Love and Your Strength,

Mindy

Mindy, He truly does want the best for all of us. That best is not always our definition of best. He knows us better than we ourselves do, so He knows what is best for us. Sometimes His best may be a trial to shape us. Ouch! But necessary. Thanks for sharing! I enjoyed it. Good piece for a devotional.
Blessings,
Rose

A wonderful thing to remember--that He always wants the best for me. Thank you for the reminder. I don't know that the paragraph of definitions is necessary; just tell us your thoughts. It's a little bit distracting.

Thanks for a good reminder!

Your earnest tone comes forth as admonition: go, seek, remember, tell, talk, etc. We need these reminders within the body of Christ; also that "HE IS Almighty God the One that cares so much for you and is always there. He is willing and able to help you if you just let Him." Your heart cry has been heard, both here and above!
