Waiting For God's Best
Many of you have probably seen it before. Even if you have, read it again. It will be worth your while. And if anyone happens to know of its origins, I would love to know. -Crystal
"Whom have I in Heaven but Thee? And there is none upon earth that I desire beside Thee. My flesh and my heart faileth; but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever." Psalm 73:25,26
Everyone longs to give themselves completely to someone,
to have a deep relationship with another,
to be loved thoroughly and exclusively.
But to His child, the Lord says:
"No, not until you are satisfied, fulfilled, and content with being loved by Me;
with giving yourself totally and unreservedly to Me
to have an intensely personal relationship with Me alone,
discovering that only in Me is your satisfaction to be found.
Only then will you be capable of the most perfect relationship
that I have planned for you.
"I want you to stop planning, stop wishing,
and allow Me to give you the most thrilling plan existing…
one that you cannot imagine (Proverbs 3:5-6).
I want you to have the best. Please allow Me to bring it to you.
"You just keep watching Me. Keep experiencing the satisfaction that I am.
Keep listening and learning the things that I tell you.
Just waiting-that's all.
"Don't be anxious. Don't worry.
Don't look around at all the things others have gotten or that I have given them.
Don't look at all the things you think you want.
Just keep looking up to Me.
"And then, when I know you are ready,
I'll surprise you with a love far wonderful than any you would dream of.
You see, I'm working at this moment to have you both ready at the same time.
Until you are satisfied exclusively with Me, and the life I've given you,
you won't be able to experience the love that exemplifies your relationship with Me.
"Dear one, I want you to have this most wonderful love,
I want you to see in the flesh a picture of your relationship with Me,
and to enjoy materially and concretely the everlasting union
of beauty, perfection, and love that I offer you with myself.
"Know that I love you utterly. Be satisfied in Me."
How then can the watchful Christian stand firm in the faith and resist the devil? The same way Jesus did in His humanity while here on earth:
1) By the authority of God's Word; 2) By the power of God's Spirit.
We now know that the devil no longer has dominion or the right to rule over our lives. The scepter is now in Jesus' hand, not that of the enemy. As we, by the Spirit, speak out our confession of faith, "JESUS IS LORD!" - Satan must bend his knee and bow his head. It is demon powers who will tremble in torment when we face them in the mighty Name of Jesus.
b. Speak The Word In Faith.
As we submit and come under the authority of God's Word and God's Spirit, that authority comes upon us. We then speak that word as follows:
1) To God in prayer;
2) In the confession of our mouth;
3) To the devil in reproof
The Spirit Himself then moves to energize the word, and the enemy flees along with his lying thoughts and feelings.
We submit to God by filling our minds with His Word and our hearts with prayer. For every wrong, evil, negative thought the enemy would sow into our minds, there is a right, good, positive thought from God's Word.
The Scripture says we can "overcome evil with good" (ROM: 12:21). Every time the devil seeks to give us a push in the wrong direction, we need to push him back - twice as hard - with the truth and power of God's Word.
c. The Laugh Of Faith. It is true, we should not take our enemy lightly or under-rate his ability. He is both smart and strong. Apart from God's Spirit and His Word we will lose every battle. Satan can outsmart us every time. The Scripture says that we are always to be aware of his clever tricks and schemes (2Cor 2:1 1).
However, while we are to
respect the devil, we are not to fear him. In fact, we can boldly oppose him in
the strong Name of Jesus and be assured of victory.

Prayer begins by realizing that you are simply talking to
God. It doesn’t matter if you’re sitting, standing, walking, or kneeling. You
can bow your head, look up, open or close your eyes. Remember, it is God you are
praying to, and no one else.
But, if you get stuck, we would like to offer a bit of advice: just PRAY.
P = Praise God.
You can create your own praise to God from your heart, or memorize one or two scripture verses and recite them to God with your personal emotion.
Psalm 150:6 - “Let everyone that has breath praise the Lord.”
Psalm 9:1 - "I will praise you, O Lord, with my heart; I will tell of all your wonders. I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing praise to your name, O most High.”
R = Repent for things you have done wrong in thought or actions.
This is an opportunity to reflect on your own attitudes or actions that need God’s forgiveness. We all make mistakes and God wants to forgive you, but first you need to apologize.
John 1:9 “ - If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all righteousness.”
Jeremiah 15:19 - “If you repent, I will restore you that you may serve me...”
A = Ask God for help for others and yourself.
God loves you and wants you and those you care about to be happy, but He would like you to ask for His help. Be specific about what you need God to do in your school, family, community, or world.
Matthew 7:7 - “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”
1 John 5:14-15 - “This is the confidence we have in approaching God; that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.”
Y = Yield yourself to God’s will and God’s way.
To yield means that you let go of some of the control of your.

To Whom It May Concern:
I heard you were considering a new manager
in your life. I would like to apply for the
job. I believe I am the most qualified
candidate. I am the only one that has ever
done this job successfully. I was the first
manager of human beings. In fact, I made
them, so naturally I know how humanity
works, and what is best to get people back
into proper working condition. It will be
like having the manufacturer as your
personal mechanic. If this is your first
time considering me, I would just like to
point out that my salary has already been
paid by the blood of my son, Jesus, on the
cross of Calvary.
What I need from you is the acknowledgment
that the price is sufficient to pay for all
your sin and to depend on me. I need you to
believe this in your heart and to tell
somebody else about your decision with your
I will make some major changes and revisions,
and they are not for you to worry about!
I need your permission though to execute
these changes. It will be my way, and in my
time. I will change your desires and give
you the strength to make the changes.
Please keep your hands out of my way! Don't
try to help me and don't resist me. I really
do need your full commitment and cooperation.
If you give me this, then the process can
go smoothly, and without delays.
P.S. I created the heavens and the earth. I AM.
The Conversion of Dumitru Duduman
"One day, Duduman was searching a ship from Holland. A large quantity of Bibles was found hidden in the cargo. The ship's captain denied any knowledge of the Bibles, but a missionary named Dave was found, 'crying and praying to God.' When Duduman asked Dave if the Bibles belonged to him, Dave answered, 'No.' Duduman demanded, 'Who do they belong to, then?' Dave's answer cut like a knife into Duduman's heart. 'They belong to your brothers and your sisters.'"
TO THE CHURCH OF PHILADELPHIA:
"8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an Open Door, and NO man can shut it:
for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept My WORD, and hast not denied My Name.
10 Because thou hast kept the WORD of My patience, I also will keep thee
from The Hour Of Temptation, which shall come upon all the world,
to try them that dwell upon the earth.
11 Behold, I come quickly: HOLD THAT FAST which thou hast,
that NO man take thy crown.
13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches"
