BIBLE STUDY with JJ DANIEL @ - home of Strombolis eZine






JJ Daniel, Washington



Hello ((((((((((((Family-of-God)))))))))))))))) and blessings from the beautiful state of Washington. This month we are enjoying the good side of “unusual weather” - we are having spring weather in autumn; our bushes and flowers think it’s time to bloom again!  J  I expect that will end shortly.


There is such uncertainly in the world today: every day the news carries the latest stock-market drop and the list of banks and businesses that have closed their doors – it’s truly hard to locate ‘good news’ today. Banks are foreclosing on home-loans, people are being laid-off, and costs are going higher every day. We can see how easily the Scripture “…people will die from fear” could be fulfilled.


Well, THANK GOD FOR JESUS!!  As a believer – the world’s financial system is not our source. The thing we need to keep in mind is that no matter what things look like today – our Heavenly Father remains unchanged, and He is not in recession! If you are not use to leaning on Jesus, and trusting HIM to pay your bills, or find you a job with thousands out-of-work – this may be a difficult adjustment for you… nevertheless, trusting Him is the way to get around the rocks you run into on the path of your life.


“My God shall supply ALL MY NEEDS, according to HIS RICHES in glory, by Christ Jesus” (Phil 4) is a Scripture written for just these moments in time. The state of affairs in the world today didn’t take God by surprise, and He is not sitting on the throne of Glory wringing His hands, trying to figure out how He will rescue His children. He knew this time was coming, and His plans, and His Promises haven’t changed. God doesn’t change; He is “The same yesterday, today and forever.” And “His arm is not too short to save His people.” He knows right where His children are, and He knows just how to reach you and how to meet your needs.


When we have no answers, your FATHER DOES! When we have no resources, your FATHER DOES!  He is not lacking in anything, and He still delights in giving good gifts to His children.


Some of you may remember the old André Crouch Song: “Through it All”…


Verse 1
I’ve had many tears and sorrows,
I’ve had questions for tomorrow,
there‘s been times I didn’t know right from wrong.
But in every situation,
God gave me blessed consolation,
that my trials come to only make me strong.

Through it all,
through it all,
I’ve learned to trust in Jesus,
I’ve learned to trust in God.

Through it all,
through it all,
I’ve learned to depend upon His Word.

Verse 2
I’ve been to lots of places,
I’ve seen a lot of faces,
there’s been times I felt so all alone.
But in my lonely hours,
yes, those precious lonely hours,
Jesus lets me know that I was His own

Verse 3
I thank God for the mountains,
and I thank Him for the valleys,
I thank Him for the storms He brought me through.
For if I’d never had a problem,
I wouldn’t know God could solve them,

I’d never know what faith in God could do.



I’ve walked the road of need, more than once in my life-time, and I can honestly say that my Father has never failed me, never not with the smallest need, or the biggest mountain – He always comes through!! The problems that you may face today, or tomorrow - never come from Your Father, but it does give Him opportunity to

show His Strength and His ability and His resources – to take care of the problems you face. No matter what comes your way – TRUST HIM!  He can’t fail!!


If you are in need, and have to trust Him at a greater level than you ever have before – then you will see His grace on your life, greater than ever before.


God still moves mountains, He still parts the red seas of our life – and He still plants money in the mouth of a fish. He can do ALL THINGS – in you, through you and for you. It’s time to simply TRUST GOD in all things, stay inside of HIS PEACE – rest there, and watch Him work.


If you think back over your life, if you’ve known the Lord personally for some time – you will see that He has never failed you. Right?  He’s always had an answer, and He always came through. Often not the way we try to dictate to Him, and always on His own time-table, but He never fails to do what He said He would do. Amen?


You WILL get past today, and through every situation… it is our choice, daily – how we will get from point A to point B. We can rest inside of His peace, trusting that God will handle it, and that His plan is a good one; or we can go stressed and worried and in doubt. We choose how you will walk this road.


Remember all that He has done for you, and praise Him for those things. Turn your mind toward His goodness and every time the thought of the problem tries to interrupt your thanksgiving – turn quickly to the goodness of God, and rest there.



Let’s agree together in prayer: Father-God, thank You for being faithful to Your Word, faithful to Your plans and faithful to Your children. You said that You deliver us out of all trouble, Thank You Father; thank You for the promise of peace, even in the middle of a storm. Thank You for never leaving or forsaking us, and for never turning Your Face from Your children. We trust You Father, and we roll all our cares over onto You, and trust You. We will leave our cares with You, knowing that You will cause our very thoughts to be in agreement with Your will. We know that our plans will be established, and we will succeed. You supply our needs, and You are our strength; we turn it all over to Your care. Holy Spirit, You are our helper and our Teacher – please help us to stay inside of Peace and to trust God in all things. We pray this according to God’s Word, and in Jesus Name – knowing that You have heard us and have answered today. Thank You Father for Your faithfulness.


Amen child-of-God?  (Proverbs 16:3 AMP; Phil 4; 1John 5:14-15)


Shalom! “Nothing missing, nothing broken; Peace & wholeness to your household”
