A New Thing…

Sometimes the hardest part of moving forward in God, is letting go of the “old” man. The person we use to be before the love of Christ consumed us. God has been speaking and He is extremely willing and more than capable of filling us with new, without any lingering residue from the old. He is looking to give us new ears, to hear what He is saying! He is giving us new eyes, so we can see His glorious works, and His Spirit move in this corrupted world! He is giving us new thoughts, to replace our wayward sinful ones! He is giving us new opportunities, new positions and new people to surround ourselves with! The atmosphere has shifted and the new is springing forth! We are going higher and deeper as we dive into the new.

To spring forth means to leap, dash, pounce, or burst forth. There is excitement in those descriptions! They take place quick, and can almost seem unexpected. Guess what? With God, we can expect these things because it proclaims it in His Word! We will expect the unexpected!

Keep your focus on the new and trust God for the manifestations to spring forth in your life and EXCEED all you could ever ask or expect the Lord to do!

Overcome the Old and embrace the New!!!

Just a Moment…

My favorite scripture is Galatians 6:9 , where the Word reminds us to not be weary in well doing for in DUE season, we will reap if we don’t faint. I am reminded daily to hold on to the promises of God in spite of what my situation looks like. Today, I want to encourage you that your due season can come upon you in an INSTANT! Stay focused on Christ and EXPECT your move at ANY MOMENT. That’s ALL it takes for your life to change is a moment.

Overcome!

Overcome Suffering….

As we “march” into this new month, stay focused on what God is trying to birth in you. Sometimes the pain of our situation tries to supersede what God is doing IN us. Don’t look at who understands you in this season, or how you are being perceived by others. Don’t focus on how much it hurts. Keep your mind on Christ who has been there before. Keep your mind on how you are being formed and fashioned to look like our Savior through adversity and sufferings. Overcome the temporary affliction of pain and look to the eternal benefits of growing intimate with the King! His glory WILL BE REVEALED! Trust in His Word!!!

BE BLESSED AND OVERCOME!

Overcome the Wait!!!

Don’t get complacent or think it strange when NOTHING seems to be moving in your circumstances. His ways are higher than our ways, and His thoughts are higher than ours! He is working the miracle while we WORK the wait! How do we do that? As you seek God in the Word,

1) Worship God from a place of expectation. Trust the promises of God spoken over your life, and just worship the God that keeps those promises.

2) Obey God from a place of faith. Move and obey even when you don’t see what God is doing. As instructions are given, know that it is God!

3) Pray from a place of perseverance! Stay on your face and communicate with the Lord! Don’t stop praying through the wait. Don’t keep asking for answers, just seek Him for wisdom, direction and strength. Intimacy comes before clarity!!! Get close to God and allow the Spirit to give you understanding!

If this is your season, grow through it and OVERCOME THE WAIT!

Ask, Seek, Knock, and OVERCOME!

Encourage Each Other…

2 of the hardest things to give in this world are money and encouragement. Strangely , we all enjoy receiving them. We are call to comfort and encourage each other ( 1 Thessalonians 5:11 ) , but do we actually do this?

We love for people to support us and be loyal, but are we the same way. Or have we gotten so use to expecting “Atta boys” that we are hesitant to offer any?

Look for someone to speak life into. Prepare yourself to be a giver, instead of receiver. This is something we are all required to do as believers and it is not based on titles or positions or emotion or feelings. Give and it shall be given to you. Get your comfort from the Spirit and then give to other what you have received.

Start your week of encouraging!!!

I will start… You are amazing and You will walk in great things on this week…..Be Encouraged!!!
