SEIZING THE MOMENT
A Glimpse into an Extremely Important Moment in the Life of Jacob

Jesus said " You're Not Alone "
I have been feeling so compelled to write this message, as the Holy Spirit has been speaking to me that there are so many of you who have been feeling so alone and forsaken.
It seems there are times for all of us, that we are facing situations in life, even battles, that we feel we are fighting all alone.
Sometimes even in times we should be happy and all is going well, still we are overcome with feelings of loneliness and fear.
John 14 says:
14 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?
23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.
25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
Let these words of Jesus soak down deep into your spirit today, for as the enemy would try to make us feel forsaken in these times of uncertainty, in which the world as we have always known it, is changing at a very rapid pace, letting us know the coming of our redeemer is drawing near.
But we do not serve a God who's hand is shortened, nor is His ears deaf unto our cry. I am writing today to remind you that He has already prepared the way for you.
He has already looked down through generations of time and He see's you where you're at right now today, in this very moment of time.
I am hearing the voice of the Holy Spirit even calling out your name...You are that important to Jesus today and His presence that is overshadowing you now will let you know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!!
He is with you, even in the moments you feel afraid to take the next step, or those times you feel the frustrations of LIFE, just trying to take you under, when you look all around and all you see makes you feel so out of control.
When you don't know what direction to go in or the next step to take, Jesus has sent me to tell you today.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!!
John 17 says:
9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.
10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.
26 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Recieve God's word for you today, for surely He knew exactly what you were needing from Him...If only to remind you to HAVE FAITH IN HIM, HE WILL NEVER LET YOU DOWN, TRUST IN HIM, THE ONE WHO HAS ALREADY SHARED HIS GREAT LOVE FOR YOU AND I... HE HAS NOT FORSAKEN US...HE PREPARED THE WAY THEN WITH HIS SHED BLOOD ON THE CROSS, BUT HAS NOT LEFT US COMFORTLESS TODAY, FOR HE IS CHRIST IN US, THE HOPE OF GLORY...
YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!!
