Encouraging Word for When Things Look Dark

Beloved, the Lord told me this morning that some of you feel like you are in the darkest time of your life.

If that’s you, He gave me an encouraging word for you.

Here’s what Papa said:

“Precious child, I know things feel really bad right now. But JOY is on its way.

MY part is to bring joy. YOUR part is to seek Me with all your heart. You cannot rely on feelings. Stabilize your life on My Word. It is the only dependable foundation that exists.

So confess My Word. Hide it in your heart. Speak it from your mouth. Learn to believe what I say, and only what I say.

As you do this, you will be occupying your soul with the only profitable work–that of obeying Me. And as you obey Me, I will PERFECT all things that concern you.

Precious child, don’t get your job description and Mine mixed up. Leave it up to Me to do what only I can do. Believe Me for the impossible, and let Me move. YOU just carry out your assignment, which is to seek Me with all your heart. As you do this, you will find joy in My presence.”

Does this word encourage your heart today? If so, leave a comment below! And join me in seeking our Lord Jesus Christ with all your heart today!


  1. Thanks! I needed the encouragement. It just seem as though work is overwhelming with grading, lesson plans , bulletin boards, and expectations. Family, church, work and personal time seem to all be time consuming. I pray for guidance, direction and wisdom to spend more time time with heavenly Father so the feeling of overwhelming does not get to hinder balance in my life. I know its temporary and all things have purpose.

      Thank your word of comfort really feeling low at present, it seems like nothing ever go right in my life

      1. Hi, dear Lilieth. I’m sorry you’re feeling low. How is your relationship with God? Are you sticking close to Him, and confessing His Word out loud in faith? He loves you so much and I know He wants to help you. I just prayed for you. Big hugs to you, sister.

    2. Belinda Asinti says:

      I decided to fast during this lent and just at the right moment you gave me the most encouraging words from PAPA. May The God of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob bless you abundantly

      1. Amen. Lent is such a beautiful time of year. I’m so grateful for it. Blessings to you on your fast! Thank you for reading!

    3. YES. That is exactly the right prayer. And ask Papa to order your steps each day, and plead the blood of Jesus over your emotions so you can stay calm. Psalm 91:1. He will keep you stable and fixed as you ask! You are doing great!

  2. Leon Dietrich says:

    Thank you…..things look very Dark at the moment…needed that message very very much

  3. Comfort Sajowa says:

    God has speaking to my heart intimacy with him. Thank you Jesus

  4. Thank you so much for that word. This past year has been so rough. I know 2017 will be a great year. Because with all the storms of 2016, I’ve only drawn closer to my Father. I’m praying constantly, reading the word several times a day and worshiping Him even more. My faith is much bigger than a mustard seed. ? But I still haven’t seen what I know is God’s will for my life. So I’m like Elijah on Mount Carmel praying for rain. And yet still no rain for me. So I’m going to keep praying and believing in His promises. This encouragement is what I needed this morning. Thank you and God Bless you sis.

    1. Stacy, I hear in my spirit that you are doing GREAT. You are just where Father wants you to be when you hide yourself in His arms. And He is going to perfect all things that concern you. Don’t worry! Just seek Him. He is soooooo GOOD and He will impress upon you each decision, each moment, each thing He needs you to do as far as the practical things go. He’s GOT this. He’s got YOU. And things are going to be GREAT.

  5. Regina Block says:

    Such a timely word! This season of my life has been one in which He has been helping me take my hands off of EVERYTHING and let Him be “GOD.”

  6. Thank you. I needed this. The past year and a half have been some of the darkest days of my life and I had even started to question if God loved me if he cares. I had many thoughts of suicide. Then coming across your blog in the past week and a half it has blessed me so much. God has used you to restore my sick soul. I didn’t know much about spiritual warfare and you have brought much light to my situation through your many writings and prayers to help me pray. I cannot Praise God enough for you Jamie. I’m seeing hope again and casting off the oppressive spirits that are tearing me and my family apart. God is working miracles in my life. Praise Him!!

    1. Dear Teresa. I wish I could hug you right now! I know 2016 was a bad year, but Papa God loves you so VERY, VERY much. He ADORES you. And He is going to see you through this. Cling close to Him; seek Him first–make Him the very first part of your day–and be sure to hide God’s Word in your heart. The words that Jesus speaks are spirit and they are life! And they will fill you with hope, encouragement, and LIFE again.
      Much love to you, and big hugs. I just prayed for you.

  14. Thank you so much for your words. It could not have come at a better time – my marriage is falling apart and I need guidance – I need help and although I am a warrior of God, I can’t do this alone. Please say a prayer for me. Thanks again for your message! God always provides…

    1. Hi, Faith. I’m so sorry you are going through that. If you need to talk, you’re welcome to schedule a mentoring session with me. I’ll work you in. I just prayed for you. Love and big hugs to you today in Jesus’ name.

  15. Millie Williams says:

    Jamie, I thank you for this word today. I am standing on God and his promise that this year me and my husband is going to move and buy us our first home this year. I thank God Papa today for my answer today. May God continually bless you and your family and ministry.
    Love Millie

    1. I’m believing with you, Millie! Remember to speak God’s Word of provision out of your mouth if you haven’t already, so the angels can run with it! They respond to His Word!

  16. Rebecca L Jones says:

    I have to agree, let Him be God, I can’t fill His sandals, I don’t know why I even think He’d need my help, but I always need His.

  17. Adeola Odutola says:

    God only You can stop the assault on my body as a woman. Father in Jesus name deliver me.

    1. I prayed for you, sister. If you are being abused, please get away from the abuser and get yourself to a safe place where you can regroup. Angels, help Adeola, in Jesus’ name.

  18. I deal with severe chronic pain daily and it is often hard to stay positive. I loved this article and it makes so much sense….hide God’s Word in my heart and let Him deal with all of this. Thank you.

  19. I love this! Right before reading this I heard Him tell me to do my part and He will do His. This word is total confirmation. Thank you, Jesus!

  20. Christine Marimba says:

    Thank you God for this word and Jamie for being faithful to God and passing on his message. This is the best message for me right now from our Daddy God and He knows what I’ve been going through and the types of spiritual attacks I’ve been under as He and I move towards the next season in my life. I was getting discouraged and sad because my enemies seemed to be winning. However, I have begun noticing changes for the better and this Love note from the Father is THE BEST thing that could have happened to me today. I feel encouraged.

    God bless you, Jamie.

  21. Christine says:

    🙁 🙁 🙁 A dark hour. Feels like I’m at the end.

    So much strain and I feel like I need physical confirmation from God right now and nothing’s happening. Nobody’s talking to me. So discouraged. Thanks for the Word, Jamie.

    1. Christine, I honestly know how you feel. If you ever need someone to talk to. Something like a pen pal just email me. I’ve been battling cancer for over a year, I lost my stepson who was like my own last year, we lost our home and that’s just half of it. Sometimes it good to talk to another Christian who won’t judge and who needs encouragement also. If so reply back and I’ll send u my email. ?

      1. Christine Marimba says:

        Hi Stacy,

        Thanks so much. Your message makes me feel so much better.


  22. Jamie, I cannot believe how much God uses your writings to help me during this time. I can’t even find the words to thank you for being obedient to your calling.
    Blessings in Him Sis.
