Even in the midst of your pain, sorrow, frustrations in life, the best thing you could do is to come closer to Jesus. That's the ultimate divine medicine.
Yes. Come to Him. He is your miracle to your current situation.
Do You Feel It?
You have shown me the path to life, and you make me glad by being near to me. Sitting at your right side, I will always be joyful. —Psalm 16:11 (CEV)
As you decide to come close to Me, the Light of My Presence shines brightly upon you. Do you feel it? It’s that warm feeling when you know you’ve done something that makes Me smile. It’s that Peace in your heart when you’ve poured out all your sorrows to Me. It’s that bubbling-over Joy that fills your voice when you sing My praises. It’s that perfect Love I always have for you— even when you mess up.
This is one of those wonderful things about Me—the closer you get to Me, the closer I draw you to Me . . . which brings Me closer to you . . . and on and on and on.
Do you feel that Joy? Open your heart to Me—and receive even more joy!

Tell It to Me
The LORD gave me what I had, and the LORD has taken it away. Praise the name of the Lord!
—Job 1:21 (NLT)
You don’t like it when your plans are messed with. You planned to go to the movies, but your parents said no. You wanted to spend the summer goofing off, but you ended up babysitting instead. You had a goal in mind, but I said, “Not now.”
When you don’t get to do what you want, you feel like stomping your foot and yelling, “No!” But instead, you push your anger and frustration down inside you. I want you to let that frustration out—to Me. I’ll understand, and I’ll help you sort through it. Then—and this is the really tough part—praise Me.
Remember that all good things—your possessions, your family and friends, your health and talents, even your time—are gifts from Me. Thank Me for the good things I give you, but do not cling to them. Be willing to let go of anything I take from you, including your plans. But don’t ever let go of My hand!

These days you and your loved ones need Jesus ' divine protection. Come to Him and let Him be your refuge and get protected ALL DAY. EVERYDAY!
Sharing an awesome devotional from Sarah Young.
Be blessed and happy Sunday:)
Let us look only to Jesus. He is the one who began our faith, and he makes our faith perfect. —Hebrews 12:2 (icb)
As you go step by step through this day, remind yourself often that I am with you. This promise of My Presence is a powerful protection.
Your life is like traveling down a road. As you go down it, you will encounter potholes and ditches all along the way. Many voices—some of them “friendly”—will call to you, trying to get your attention, and tempting you away from the right road. But don’t listen to them. Don’t even look at them. If you take your eyes off Me and follow another’s path, you are in serious danger. Just a few steps away from your true path are pits of self-pity and discouragement, as well as traps of pride and rebellion.
The only way to stay on the right road is to keep your focus on Me. Trusting in My Presence is your best protection.
If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and He will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.
James 1:5, NLT
Wisdom For Your Situation By Joseph Prince
If you’re caught in a situation where you don’t know what to do, it’s time to humble yourself and ask the Lord for wisdom!
The Bible tells us not to hesitate to ask God for wisdom when we need it. To ask the Lord for wisdom is to say, “I can’t, Lord, but You can. I give up on my own efforts and depend entirely upon Your unmerited favor and wisdom.” And when you ask Him for wisdom, He doesn’t rebuke you, but will gladly and generously give it to you!
Beloved, as you humbly ask for and receive richly His wisdom, He will show you what to do. He will direct your steps and lead you to good success!
Expect God’s Goodness And Abundance by Joseph Prince
Psalm 65:11 11You crown the year with Your goodness, and Your paths drip with abundance.
The economic experts may have painted a gloomy picture for the year, but as far as God is concerned, He has crowned the year with His goodness and abundance! God’s supply and provision are never affected by world events, so good times or bad times, expect every month, every week and every day of this year to be surrounded by His goodness. Expect His abundance to meet your every need!
“But Pastor Prince, I’ve not done much good in the past year, so how can I be confident that God will provide for me this year?”
My friend, God doesn’t bless you because of what you have done. He blesses you because of what Jesus has done. At the cross, Jesus bore all your sins and was punished to the full for every one of them, so that you can have His righteousness as a gift and be blessed with every one of God’s blessings (Ephesians 1:3).
Now, look at the word “abundance” in Psalm 65:11. It is the Hebrew word deshen, which means “fatness”. The idea here is abundant provision, blessings and even fertility. (So if you have been believing God for a child for many years, believe that this is the year you will conceive!) Now, the word deshen has another meaning—“ashes”. Ash is the final form of something that has been burnt. For example, the animal sacrifices to God in the Old Testament were burnt on the altar until they became ashes (Leviticus 4:12). So ashes here speak of the finished work of Jesus at the cross that has put away your sins.
My friend, because of Jesus’ finished work you can confidently believe and declare that the year is crowned with goodness and that God’s paths drip with God’s provision, blessings and good success for you every step of the way. If the devil tells you that God won’t bless you because of your sins, just tell him, “ASHES!” and point him to the cross of Jesus!
Beloved, you are blessed not because of your good works, good looks, qualifications or industry experience, but because of Jesus’ finished work. He alone has qualified you to receive God’s goodness and abundance every day for the rest of your life!
Only Christ’s Atonement Satisfies God by Joseph Prince
1 John 2:1–2 1… if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. 2And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins…
Today, Jews still observe Yom Kippur or the Day of Atonement. As the name suggests, it is a day set aside to make atonement for one’s sins. But for Christians, this beautiful feast points to Jesus and what He did for us on the cross. Because of His sacrifice, all our sins have already been perfectly atoned for. That is why, should we sin, we know that “we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous”. And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins.
Now, it does not say that if anyone repents, we have an Advocate with the Father. It says that if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father. The moment a child of God sins, straightaway, his Advocate, Jesus Christ, goes into action to pray for and protect him.
What about repentance then?
The word “repentance” is metanoia in the Greek, which means to change one’s mind. For example, you used to believe that Jesus was just a good man. Then one day, you repented and believed that He is the Son of the living God, who died for your sins and rose again on the third day, and you gladly took Him as your Savior.
Bible repentance is not this idea of hitting or punishing yourself to atone for your sins. Don’t turn it into a human work, like the man who went to a priest to confess his sins. When they were done, the priest asked the man, “By the way, what do you do for a living?” The man replied, “I’m a contortionist,” and proceeded to give a demonstration. Another man came along wanting to confess his sins. When he saw the contortionist all twisted up on the ground, he said, “If this is repentance, forget it!” and ran off!
My friend, there is no need to climb the Himalayas or whip your back bloody to atone for your sins. No amount of self-punishment or crying can atone for them. Your sins have already been punished fully in the body of Jesus. Only His finished work satisfies God. So change your mind and simply believe that Jesus alone is the propitiation for your sins!
1 Corinthians 2:12 12Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.
As a child of the Most High God, God wants you to know the things that have been freely given to you. He wants you to receive them freely although it cost Him His Son. He paid the price, but He wants you to receive the blessings freely. That is His love toward you.
Perhaps you are asking God, “How is it that I don’t have this blessing? And why do I have so little of that?”
I believe that He is saying this to you: “What do you lack, My child? Health? Take it! It has been paid for with the life of My Son.
“Do you need peace of mind? My Son wore the crown of thorns on His head to give it to you. Take it!
“Lack wisdom? Take My wisdom!
“Need victory? Victory is not something you attain. It is a gift to be received. Take it!
“Take My provision! Take My favor! Every time you come into My Presence, take, and take some more!”
God, your heavenly Father, wants you to receive like the prodigal son, who deserved nothing, but received everything. (Luke 15:11–24) God delights in giving freely. And He delights in you receiving freely because it shows that you value and appreciate His Son’s sacrifice.
You miss it when you are busy trying to earn what has been freely given to you, when you think that you must do more for God to bless you, or that you must pay the price for it. God cannot give it to you based on your works because if it is by works, it is no longer by grace. When you try to work for it, you frustrate the grace of God and make light of Jesus’ work at Calvary.
My friend, the days of trying, striving and earning are over. The days of take, take and take more have come. Take and you will bring pleasure to God’s heart!
