Look Up: Trusting in God’s Sovereignty

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been feeling… bleh.
Anxious. Let down. Frustrated. Scared, even.

All of this is for personal reasons; but I look around me and see the same thing. Especially since much of the Western United States is up in flames, the Presidential Election is coming up, and COVID is still very prevalent in our society. What are we to do?

I’ve been reading a book called Anxious for Nothing by Max Lucado, and in it, Lucado writes about how we can rejoice in the Lord’s Sovereignty, no matter what is happening in our lives. The same God who created all things is in charge of all things, and not only that—He LOVES us.

While we sit here, feeling deflated, we can look up, and say, “Father, You are Good, and in control.” He is in charge of who wins the 2020 elections, when the fires will stop, and every situation you happen to be in. And He turns all things for the good of those who love Him (Romans 8:28). You can trust His Love because He died for you, that you might know the Father and live forever (John 3:16, John 17:3).

So next time you feel completely out of control, friend, stop fighting, and accept His Love. Accept His Sovereignty. And Accept His good, wise, unique, perfect plan for your life. Never forget: His thoughts towards you are for good, not for evil (Jeremiah 29:11).

In Christ,
Annalee Hoover, ISAIAH 62 PRAYER MINISTRY

Victory for Nigeria!

It is with great joy that I report this: 602 Boko Haram members have renounced being apart of Boko Haram and have pledged an oath to the Federal Public of Nigeria. While only time can tell if this is genuine or not, it is a huge win for Nigeria and a huge step forward! You can read the entire report of what is happening here.

Please pray with me over this situation, that God would continue to bring down terrorism (especially Boko Haram) and would grant Nigeria more victory!:

“Dear Jesus,
Thank You for this amazing turn of events! Please continue to cause victory over Boko Haram, and bring those men and women that are apart of Boko Haram to You so that they won’t be brought to shame. Thank You for all things, Lord Jesus!
In Your Name we pray,
Amen.”

Remember God’s Faithfulness

Isaiah 44:26-28 says,

“I am the LORD, the Maker of All Things… who carries out the words of his servants and fulfills the predictions of his messengers, who says of Jerusalem, ‘It shall be inhabited,’ of the towns of Judah, ‘They shall be rebuilt,’ and of their ruins, ‘I will restore them,’ who says to the watery deep, ‘Be dry, and I will dry up your streams,’ who says of Cyrus, ‘He is my shepherd and will accomplish all that I please; he will say of Jerusalem, “Let it be rebuilt,” and of the temple, “Let its foundations be laid.”’

At the time, those in Israel may have found this hard to believe. But it happened! Many of those who were exiled came back to Israel, and Israel became a country again in 1948.

My friends, remember Jesus’ faithfulness and goodness, today. Whenever He says something, it will come to pass. Let’s celebrate all He is doing and will do!!!

Ravi Zacharias has Passed Away.

Ravi Zacharias fought the good fight of trying to beat bone cancer in his spine. But, this morning, on May 19th, 2020, he went to be home with the Lord.

He is in no more pain, and every one of his tears have been wiped away by our Loving Jesus.

Please be in prayer for his family and loved ones. Thank you!

Today, our church did our annual “U COUNT Campaign Spotlight,” an opportunity to focus on human trafficking. We heard a short sermon from our pastor, then we were told about all that U COUNT has accomplished in the past 13 years. This year’s theme was, “Let There Be Light.”
