“Remember how the LORD your God led you through the wilderness for these forty years, humbling you and testing you to prove your character, and to find out whether or not you would obey his commands” Deuteronomy 8:2, NLT.
Anyone can worship the LORD when everything is going well. The children of Israel gladly praised the LORD after they crossed over the Red Sea. They gave Him glory with no hesitation after they saw how He delivered them from the Egyptian army. The challenge came when they walked through the wilderness. They began to lose heart, lose their patience, lose their faith and their joy in believing. God allowed them to go through the wilderness to show them their heart. As with you daughter, God will allow you to go through the wilderness to show you what you really believe. Are you like the Israelites who lost faith the moment things became difficult, or are you like His servant Job who bowed down and worshiped the LORD after losing everything? The only way you will know the strength of your faith is when you go through something that puts it to the test. Do you hold on and cling to Him with all you’ve got, or do you curse Him and die? We worship God, not outcomes. Our worship is not conditional. It’s not based on whether He answers our prayers. It’s based on Him being our King.
Pray this from your heart: My LORD. You are my King, and I worship you, not outcomes. I worship you with all my heart because of who you are. I choose to trust you no matter what I face. Strengthen my heart. Strengthen my praise. Strengthen my faith and my joy in believing. Fill me God as I humble myself in worship to you. Let nothing steal my praise and my worship. It’s my lifeline. In Jesus’ name.
(Read Job 1:20; Numbers 14:2; James 1:3-4; Psalms 96:9; 2 Corinthians 4:16-18)

It is in our valleys where our faith should grow stronger in the Lord!
Oh Lord Thank you for your Strength continue to make me stronger dear God Thank you God my life
Praise the LORD, I’ve gone through so much, there have been time I would worry but I realize I can’t worry God already spoke to me and said what he’s going to do. I have no choice but to give it to God and let him do the rest. He said cast your cares up on me because I careth for you. Thank you Jesus, when matters come I have to Trust God at his Word and what he Promised. In Jesus Name Amen 🙏💛💚💙❤💘💓💝💜💕💕💕
Praise God… I needed to hear those words… Since God spoke to me I resigned my job recently to do Lord’s ministry with my husband.. We are undergoing a lot of struggle to cope with life.
I felt like broken.. And on the exact time I read those words.. Thank you Sister and Lord Jesus for strengthening me.. Amen
Amen to God all the Glory
Even though I have walked through the valley of the shadow of death, your rod and staff have comforted me..always teaching me your ways..Never to leave your side..I love you Jesus💜
Father You know I have been going through!!! I have NEVER in my life had so many challenges come at me at one time..one thing after another..I mean almost daily..from evacuation, to no electricity for a week, losing EVERYTHING that was in the refrigerator & tall standing freezer, staying at a hotel, to being tried by someone in the Church mistreating my Grandchild (there was a time I would have went OFF but..I didn’t..I walked away & said I’ve gotta Pray), to my Cousin being found dead in his home after the evacuation, to a MAJOR flood in my home..causing them to cut out the carpet in my bedroom & livingroom, take out my bathroom sink, cut out the walls from the front door, around the livingroom into my bedroom!
And ALL I can say is……
“I Won’t Complain”…mind you..I cried MANY DAYS & NIGHTS!! But I NEVER LOST MY FAITH OR MY PRAISE!!!
In the midst of ALL these things happening the Lord ALWAYS had a ram in the bush..someone or something ALWAYS came through! Between a dear friend & my Sister the hotel was paid for..although the flooding happened, things are still progressing..as for the lost of the food..GOD WILL/DOES & HAS PROVIDED!! Mind you I have my three Grandchildren & Daughter living with me.
They/We have NOT gone without ANYTHING! THANK YOU JESUS..THANK YOU!!!
Lord, I just wanna Thank You for giving me the strength to endure & NEVER GIVE UP ON YOU because I KNOW YOU WON’T GIVE UP ON ME. YOU’RE A WAY MAKER..YOU ARE MY BRIGHT & MORNING STAR..WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS..I KNOW I CAN DEPEND ON YOU!! LORD, I ask You to PLEASE continue to keep Your loving arms around me & my family..Jesus be a fence all around us EVERYDAY! This Lord I Pray In Jesus’ Holy Name..Amen

Am going through difficult times, and praying to God to help me not loose faith. I don’t want to be like the Israelites that after the victory gave thanks to God, then went back to there unbelieve and complaing when circumstances showed up. For that reason they stayed in the wilderness for 40 years.
Yes LORD, I’ll praise YOU in the storm and I will lift my hands, cause YOU are who YOU are, no matter where I am. Through the tears, through the pain, through the false accusations, through it ALL…I will praise your Holy name! FATHER GOD I don’t always understand, but I trust you LORD. YOU see the end from the beginning. You said many are the afflictions of the righteous but YOU LORD deliver us from them all! (Psalm 34:19). NO weapon formed shall prosper! Goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I WILL dwell in the house of the LORD forever! I love YOU FATHER, thank you for first Loving me Fiercely!
Amen! Yes Lord thank you Lord for reminding those of us who get off track.. with our complaining, whining,lack of patience,not trusting, murmuring,self seeking rather than waiting on you Lord.. praise your Holy Name.. what a Mighty GOD we serve.
