I trust you in the future that you are leading me to. I take my hands off the wheel and let you have your way. I will only move when you say move, and i will stay when you tell me to stay. I don’t see every step on my path but I am trusting you that you have ordered every step that i need to take. Even when the valley of the shadow of death surrounds me, I will not fear. Because you go before me clearing the path and lighting the way. You are my help, you are my way maker, you are my light in the darkness that is who you are. I trust you God lead me and I will follow. In Jesus name Amen!
When God moves you into a new season, the only thing you carry from that season are the lessons learned. If you spiritual mentality changes, your mental mentality has to change to, as well as your physical. You can’t change one part and not affect the others. So as God makes things new in your life, let him sweep out the old let him clean house. Don’t hold anything back from Him. Jesus came that you might have life and life more abundantly.
21 for she thought, “If I can just touch his robe, I will be healed.” – Matthew 9:21 NLT
The woman with the issue of blood heard that Jesus was coming to town. She saw this glimps of an opportunity to get what she needed. All we know is that she fought through a lot of people to be healed, but it is so much deeper than that. In the middle of all that was going on in her like she pushed aside everything else to get a one on one opportunity with the King.
Jesus never came through that town again. Family there are going to be fleeting once in a lifetime moments when God wants you to get something and we cannot be distracted by these insignificant things. some thing that are normal priority in everyday life will need to go on the back burner. Opportunities will come up and you wont have a moment to sit in you quiet time about it. You are going to have to find your peace in the storm! god is always speaking, He does not stop just because your 6 am prayer time ended. WE THE BODY OF CHRIST have to come to a place where we are the peace. a place where we don’t have to pray up the peace but we bring the peace.
Rules and Limitations! As a child we role our eyes wishing they we didn’t have them. As we get older we realize that they have a purpose and we even set limits of our own. But deep down that inner child is still there and sometimes even as adults that child will show up and we will cringe at the new rules on our job and wonder why we have to obey them.
God has given us limits and boundaries. A lot are found in the bible but so many more are written on the tablet of our heart. Still more are found written in our DNA and the script of our life and in the design of all creation, each one has its purpose. There are benefits for staying with in these limits but there are also consequences for going beyond them.
The prodigal son found this out the hard way. For a short while he lived limitless but he lived it out side the limits set up by his father and he reaped the consequences. When he returned he found out that the limits his father set up were designed so that his life can be the right kind of limitless. He settled back onto the path his father designed for him So that he could reach his full potential. He was Limited In Order To Be Limitless.
Happy new year. What frame of mind are you in concerning this new year? Are you missing the old year 2017, are you embracing this new year 2018? The frame of mind you start this year with will set the initial course (path) you will take. If you start off negative you will find your self making avoidable adjustments later on. Yes God does have planned test and trials for us this year but we don’t need to add any to the list. Don’t make things harder than they have to be this year.
When my life on this planet has expired, let it be said of me that I left no stone unturned. Let it be said of me that I poured out all that God placed in me and the abundance of everything I had to give was given out. Let it be said of me that I Impacted and blessed everyone that ever heard my voice, read any thing that I wrote or were touched by my hand. Let it be said of me that completed the purpose God placed me on this earth.
Since I last wrote to you all God has pulled me into a season of spiritual and emotional growth. This season is far from over, to be honest I am not rushing it. In this season i God has connected me with people and He is showing me the impact that He has allowed me to have on there lives. I have formed a special bond with one brother in particular. We have very similar life history and God has used that to only strengthen our growing bond. during one of our nightly phone conversations he said some things that bought me to my knees and humbled me. “I look up to you, I see not only as a friend but a mentor. I see you like a pastor.”
I don’t like titles nor do i want one, his words cut straight to my core and bought me to a state of thankfulness. I have not meet this fellow bother face to face yet our communication is via phone calls, text or internet and he is in a different state than i am. i write this with tears in my eyes because it humbles me and blows my mind that God would choose me to have such an impact on someones life.
“My heart beating, my soul breathing
I found my life when I laid it down
Upward falling, spirit soaring
I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground” – Hillsong United Touch The Sky
Is this world so valuable and important that we don’t HEAR, SEE, TASTE, TOUCH AND SMELL, the goodness of the Lord? We are eagles that can soar but we have fallen in love with the comforts of our nest. We will soar only when we are completely surrendered.
Our world needs Christ right now. And the only way the world (people) is going to get to Christ is through us. But first our storage must be empty and available for God to fill up. A storehouse is a great place to get food but what kind of food is it? If your storehouse is giving out moon pies and cupcakes, you would be doing your fellow man a disservice. There is a reason why Jesus said let go of your life (way of thinking, your ideas, your world view) pick up your cross and follow Him.
