I Have Made Up My Mind To Trust God, By Karen Rowe

. . . and of course follow Jesus !

The Lord Impressed on my heart to write to you today.  But He didn’t really tell me what to write – just yet.  As I was pulling up the tools to walk by faith, I prayed, Lord, you know how much God is revealing to us right now.  What is the one thing that you want me to share today?

Let us Begin:  What are you Trusting God in?  The Lord opened my mind to remember this testimony.  See, I get weak too, but we can’t go back and forth between our flesh (from the Spirit).  The Flesh that is in opposition to the Spirit of God.  See?  So my testimony … we think, we feel and we want to , but all I Need to know is God’s will & then we stand on faith trusting God.

And, I CAN say (TESTIFY), we stand on D A I L Y TRUST!  Not momentary trust, but daily Trust!  This is how our faith in God grows daily!   Trust in God!   Not in me; not in any other, but trust in God – and EYES focused and lifted up trusting Jesus and following Him by the Holy Spirit and in and of The Christ.


SEE?  God does this!  So thank you Jesus for this revelation!  And Praise God for the work He does in us!

Last night, I was …

Just remembering when the bench was finally open!… I was JUST beginning to be “chattering to Jesus’ “….gotta tell you, JESUS;” “I am getting a bit nervous NOW”… & the Lord impressed on my heart to get up and walk … and “that” the bench was waiting for me …& I sit! I said, “… my grateful for the bench”. Then she sit beside me…. My prayer?  “Really God? I have nothing left to give.” His response? “Ask her how she is.” Did you hear that? … still realizing!!! … and so I did. All I did was ask her how she was!  And, GOD leads to what He already knows!!! And how was she? FULL of praise! And then! Her husband come forth! BOTH hands raised HIGH in the air HOLDING a piece of paperwork. He said, ” Praise God! Praise God! They said I HAD something when I come in here! BUT PRAISE GOD! It says I don’t have anything when I am going out of here!”
Just saying…
Hope this is a blessing to you too today!
So to keep this simple and in the format as Christ in me directs me, the message is quite simple.  God is watching over His Word!  How much can God do?  How much will we believe?
There is more!  God has been unfolding this message to me in massive doses over the last week or so.  Feel free to visit our Instagram – just a place that is dedicated to God as a place to hold Daily Devotions to God’s Holy Word.  It is a place where I spiritually grow in my trust in God! And, we hope it is a place you will be blessed by something from God too!
See?  We need each other! And, we need struggles!  God is in the wilderness with us; and God’s Thoughts for us are good!  Jesus is our Lord means VICTORY in Christ – Forevermore!
Now all we have to do is Believe God!
Can I ask you a question?
Can I ask you a question?
When something hurts your gut … I mean when something really hits that place that can shake you; WHO do you want to hear from 1st?  The Doctor? The Lawyer?  The Manager?  The Government?  Or Jesus!
Question 2:  Where does your Peace come from?
Who is your trust in?
God has made up His Mind!  And Praise be to Jesus, God has made up my mind too!  I am not that good by myself!  I need Jesus every breath that I take; I need God and I trust His love for me and all that will believe.  God so loved the world!
Oh, goodness, there is something more!!!
Don’t miss this!
When Jesus said …
《They wanted to have a reason》The blind man ~ Which one did sin?
Watch this!!!
They wanted to find the source of sin!

Remember what Jesus said?

》》》 Neither did he/ nor his parents!
Oh this is so good!!! Thank you Jesus for this revelation!
Why were they on Jesus about this???
Why on us???
Jesus said! Watch this! NEITHER!!!
It was on Jesus SO THAT Jesus could manifest Himself thru him!
Going thru something?
SO Jesus can manifest God’s power to the world!!!
God wants to manifest His Power!
It is not about who sinned!!!
God wants to manifest His Power!
It is not about who sinned!!!
Pray God will manifest His Power !
How much do you believe?
… God wants to deliver them!
This life is about … God wants to deliver them!
We hope this is a blessing to you!
Stay strong in Faith in Christ Jesus & of good courage!
《 IF it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.》
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; inSOmuch THAT, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

Matthew 24:24 KJV

Jesus said unto him, THOU shalt love the Lord thy God with ALL thy heart, and with ALL thy soul, and with ALL thy mind.
Matthew 22:37 KJV
Life & Blessings in Christ!

God meant for His Power to come to us when He sent Jesus to the world.  But remember the world did not receive him, but who did?  Those whom God revealed Jesus to.
In closing, WHY did God choose a few?  To be the LIGHT and His Voice to the World.
Read your Bible – If for no other reason, read it because the world says not to.  God gave His Word to us to help us overcome all things!
How would it work out for a mechanic to skip learning the functions of the automobile.
IF you don’t want to read the Bible, then how would it work out for a mechanic to skip learning the functions of the automobile.
This is the message I hear Jesus saying in my ear.
Give Jesus your attention. 
He will lift your heart up to God and never let you go!
This is the message I hear Jesus saying in my ear.
If you love Him, give Him your attention.  He will lift your heart up to God and never let you go!  He will go with you, before you and protect you for all sides.  But you have to Trust Him and you must believe.
Here is the really cool part!  God won’t let you stay the same!
What is the % that you believe God?  Now here is the really cool part!  God won’t let you stay the same!  God will change your mind; and cause your heart to believe.  Then all you have to do is trust in Jesus and believe in God.  He will never leave nor forsake you!
Let me share a story:
If you feel abandoned by God?
Let me share a story:  Our teenage son asked his dad, “WHY” in lieu of yes sir.  It didn’t work out well for him, but the love was still there.  If a son doesn’t feel respected, then it is up to the son to respect the father.  If you want respect, you first show respect.  See?  Learn Respect, Show Respect, Earn Respect.  And, all this time, Jesus is our Righteousness _ Let us NEVER FORGET JESUS!
Jesus is our Righteousness _ Let us NEVER FORGET JESUS!
We can each say, change happens in the person of “me”.  Then we can be the light to the world.  Change will come with a testimony.
Change will come with a testimony.
And, the Spirit of the Living Lord just reminded me of the Title He gave Today:
I Have Made Up My Mind To Trust God.
Respect is a Method of Love. And Order in God’s Kingdom.
If we don’t feel like — God is there; and … we know inside we are credited by Righteousness (thru and by Jesus); then whose responsibility is it to change?  God?  Them? or us?  The answer is the only one you can change, which is you.  Ask not, why God.  Reply like our son who is receiving Grace:  We may not understand WHY we have to go through something difficult; BUT Change your response to :  Yes, Lord (like yes dad), I am listening.  Get up and come to meet Jesus (like a son will get up to meet his dad eye to eye with obedience in his heart and in his hand – ready to hand over in his hand).  THEN, talk to Jesus, as a son can talk with his dad.  SEE?  Understanding the love God has for us is extraordinary and extreme!
I am not sad to write to you about these things!
JOY fills my heart that God loves you so much!
I am not sad to write to you about these things!
JOY fills my heart that God loves you so much!
God is not out to get you!  Neither are we as parents out to get our teenage son.  We are already blessed; like God most desires to bestow His blessings on the world; first we must believe and respond to Jesus by faith.
& to even ask him to help you in your unbelief. 
My friends, God is God and Jesus is LORD!  Our God and our Salvation have sent us the Holy Spirit to help us.  Lean in to HIM and tell God you want to just believe.  Ask Jesus to lift your eyes up to trusting Him & to even ask him to help you in your unbelief.  Yes, you can be that honest with God.  God loves you this much & there is nothing you can tell God that He doesn’t already know.
Friends, Jesus had to go through some things too; and so must we.  BUT HOPE is a POWERFUL WORD!
This is the end of the message today:
In the Bible,
is the confident expectation of what God has promised
and its strength is in His faithfulness.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord , thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you AN EXPECTED END.
Jer 29:11
See! The expected end! We will have troubles in this world, BUT!!!
NO weapon that is formed against thee shall PROSPER; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the HERITAGE of the servants of the Lord , and their righteousness is OF me, SAITH the Lord .
Isaiah 54:17 KJV
The meaning of Prosper in the Bible?
1 : to succeed in Christ’s activity in us especially : to achieve spiritual success. 2 : to succeed to become strong and flourishing.
As the verb. : to cause to succeed or thrive.
Glory Hallelujah!
In today’s Verse, no weapon formed against us can thrive.
☆PROSPER in the LIFE (JESUS) God gave to the world:  JESUS is our HOPE!
Spiritually To grow; to increase!
IN HOPE, we discover Whom God is!
In the Bible HOPE is the confident expectation of what God has promised and its strength is in His faithfulness.
In the world, “Hope” is commonly used to mean a wish : its strength is the strength of the person’s desire. But in the Bible hope is the confident expectation of what God has promised and its strength is in His faithfulness.


It is a different Love!  Follow Jesus!

Love in Christ,

We need each other to get to where God calls us to go!




Jesus peers before us, so He already knows … Faith in Christ is where all blessings from God are discovered! Follow Jesus and Trust in God. There is no fear in Love, but perfect love drives out fear. That’s why there is a calm that comes over you when you hear the Word of God preached. And that is why fear creeps in AT you when you hear the media preach. JESUS calms the storms and there is no mountain Satan can build high enough that faith IN CHRIST can’t tear down. Jesus is the name above all names.



BUT LET a man EXAMINE himself,

AND SO LET him eat OF THAT bread,

and drink OF THAT cup.
1 Corinthians 11:28 KJV

FOR THIS CAUSE many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.
1 Corinthians 11:30 KJV



And, Always Remember 2 Things!  No, Today, God gave me 3 things:

1.  When you receive this, you will never be the same!

2.  God for us.  God with us.  God in us. 

3.  Always Remember to come to ME (God, the Father, through and by Jesus) Before you go head on.

How do you find out How much God loves you?  How do you get from Point A to Point B?





Point A *Must Repent

Point B *Beginning of Being Born Again.

Step 1:  Being Born Again.

1st Step:  Repent.

1st Step to Being Born Again, Repent!  For the Kingdom of God is near to you!  Lord, I receive this!  I will never be the same!  The Kingdom of God is NOW!  Repent and Be Born Again to LIVE and Be set FREE from the law of sin and death (Pride and Selfish Ambition).

Believing on Jesus, 


After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Matthew 6:9-13 King James Version (KJV)

Next articleUPDATED: NM State Senator Pino stated ‘Nowhere in the Bible does it say abortion is wrong’
Meet Karen: Hi, I am blessed, by God's good grace and because I know Jesus, I am blessed. I choose to be blessed, because I have a choice set before me and I refuse to look down. I trust God and I know and believe in the love God has for us. I have overcome difficulties; and I am blessed by the grace of God alone. If I have written about it, then I have felt the pain of it in some way, and to some degree. Did you know that Jesus has felt your pain? This is why I write. By God's grace I can identify; and tell you honestly, yes there is hope in anything and everything that you are facing today! Jesus is our Hope! He is the Truth, the Way and the Life. I am married a wonderful man, Robert Rowe; I love my husband and he loves me; and we have been married for 28 years. Together, we have been blessed with a wonderful daughter, named Amanda who is college now; and a wonderful son, named Daniel who is growing up well and soon to graduate elementary school. We work together and by God's grace we run our own business called PSI. We have a pastor over our ministry and over our business and also we depend on him for advise in our family. We have 2 dogs, 4 horses, 2 cats and love to spend time outdoors by the water and by campfires ... that is it seems when we can find time away from life's busy schedule. I love to write because it helps me learn more about God. And, I am driven by a passion from a love that God has put in my heart to share from my experiences and struggles, as I gain understanding in God’s Word to know how effective and powerful God is over our every situation! I share with you so you can know that you are not alone in your struggles. The same God who helps me and my family, is your help and shield as well! Life is not always easy, but it is possible –I like to share the difference that following Jesus makes in my life. And, I love to share God's patience and mercy and love that is with me! I am not perfect, but am experiencing God sanctify me through and through with every mistake I make; and yes, overcome in Christ! Life is not just about the successes; life on this earth is also about the troubles we overcome to discover what God has hidden in our faith to find! Troubles are more a challenge to grow in our faith ... It is not easy, but in the end the grace of God we discover is worth experiencing God in the midst. By Grace, I have discovered Jesus is Peace and He is my Joy and Wisdom from Heaven. God is our Provider and Healer and Creator, who is our help and shield over all things. By grace, I have experienced a nearness to God through my faith in His Son! We are well forgiven by God; and well blessed when we know and believe the love that God has for us. To say, "all is well with my soul" is a powerful knowledge to understand and experience. I sense God's desire for you to know His love for you and how deep His love for you is that He has SO loved you; God gave you His Son. God loves you right now just as you are! There is so much to learn! I believe that as we learn from God, we are God’s gift to each other. It is all God’s story –and for His glory; and God has SO loved us. I love to paint the vision that God has given me about a Father’s love –that God wants you to dream again and visualize His love for you! In God’s eyes, there’s more to life than we see; and in a world that sometimes misrepresents and misunderstands God and love; God wants you to have the courage to dream His dream and see His vision of a Father’s love for you! Many years ago, I prayed to God, “How can I tell a million people what I know about Your Son?” God showed me I had a gift of a ministry about God's Love; and He called it Hope in Today! I write to please God and I write to encourage you; and I write to spend quiet time with God. All because of this love that God has first shown me! I need Jesus –and my life is about my relationship with God. And, every blessing begins with Him! Love in Christ, Karen Rowe, Director Hope in Today Ministries, Inc.
