TITLE: “HE CAN LIFT YOU UP TO HIM”

He can lift you up to Him. Let’s go to:

Psalms 10:6 “He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: For I shall never be in adversity.”

said (Strong’s 559) to say, answer, call, command, tell or intend;
heart (Strong’s 3823) the heart, mind, feelings or wisdom;
moved (Strong’s 4131) be carried, cast, slide or slip;
adversity (Strong’s 7489) to spoil, make good for nothing, bad displease or evil.

So even if the ways of this world are doubtful and negative, realize that you are a child of dear God and that by listening to Him and what He has for you, you will be a better, more positive person. Stay around positive situations and positive people so you will not slip into negativity and things that pull you from Him. Be pleasing to God by doing what He wants you to do.

One way to stay with Him and strengthen yourself back in line with Him is to stay in the Word. There is no better discipline to keep you on the same path that HE wants you to be. That way you know His thoughts, emotions and ways to help you get along better in this world. There is nothing new that someone else by example has not gone through that you cannot overcome. He has already paid the price through the Son if you accept this and live in peace.

Ask Him to keep you strong in Him and on the right path so you can help out your friends and family. Be His good friend that He can use to plant those good seeds of positive thinking and hopefulness. He loves it that you are there for Him. Praise Him and spend some quality time with Him thanking Him for all He is doing for you and just for being that dear God that He is.

Finally, He can lift you up to Him so be ready to be happy and accept the peace of mind that comes in knowing that you do have the victory in Him. Share that wonderful happiness with those around you and be joyful. You already know in your heart that there is no other like Him and that He loves you so much. What more do you need to make you happy. Share back with Him and let Him know that He makes you happy, too. He loves you.

Thanks dear God for Your Love and Your Strength,

Mindy
at Your service

Wonderful message. Inspiring words. I couldn't, however, make any connection to The Prom. I could have missed something.

Dear Melinda, I have to agree this is good teaching and great advice. However, I struggle with how it relates to the theme. Blessings, Sylvia

Nicely written message, but I agree - is it about the Prom? This would make a good devotional or bible study.

good to be reminded to stay focused on the positive life of God's word.

Thank you for sharing a fine message. Praising our Lord is a blessing for us and a time to reflect on all that He so graciously does out of love in our lives from day to day.
