Triumphant Victorious Reminders
Inspired by the Holy Spirit

"We are assured and know that all things work together for good to and for those who love God and are called according to His design and purpose. If God be for us, who can be against us? Who can truly be our enemy, if Almighty God is on our side?"
~ Romans 8:28, 31 ~
There are many people going through difficult times these days. The difficulties in life are so different, no matter the degree, it is very scary.
As we are going through, notice the key words...'going through'. We know the option can not be to 'stay' there, however as my friend Ellen who I briefly communicated with yesterday via text, she said, "it's hard not knowing which way to go." She made a comment, "I've got to learn to 'let go' and just 'let God'."
My sweet friend Ellen, she looks at many things in a positive light. Her husband's daughter, Lauren had juvenile diabetes. This beautiful, vivacious young girl was like a daughter to Ellen. A couple of years ago this sweet girl died suddenly. This was a very dark time in their lives. This young girl was so full of life. I didn't know her personally, but I heard so many beautiful things about her.
They are still going through some major difficulty, I don't know the degrees, nor will I assume. However, I pray as I know many of you will pray for God's mighty restoration to annihilate their family, their relationship, and their faith in God.
Wow! At this point in my writing this, my girlfriend just returned my call. She is feeling overwhelmed with the circumstances in her life. Praise you Father that you want to encourage her and others today with your OVERWHELMING PRESENCE!
This is a sweet note for Ellen and for others, that I believe is from the heart of God,
I just want you to know that God is for you and not against you. These things that have taken place in your life are not of God. However, He will be glorified in the end as "ALL things work together for good to and for those who love God and are called according to His design and purpose." (Romans 8:28). I pray ministering laborers into your lives to minister encouragment and God's aid to you even in the physical realm. Have you heard that He gives and takes away? I believe that He takes away your mourning and gives you joy! I believe that He takes your ashes and gives you beauty! I believe that He takes that cloak of heaviness that you once wore and He gives you His garment of PRAISE! The key to His giving to you, is that you have to let go of that thing and give it to Him as He replaces it. Praise Him for Who He is and watch your atmosphere change. Your situation may not change immediately, but everything around you will become demagnified as He is magnified!
'Let go' of that old thing and 'let God' give you His New thing!
Be overwhlemed by Who He Is!
