Thank you Lord!! All honor and glory to you!! You are the rock of salvation! King of Kings! Bread of Life!! Living Water!! You are on time, every time!
Lord, thank you!!
He woke me up like dis!! With a praise and a worship on my mind for the great I AM!!
He woke you up this morning, which means He still has work for you to do this day!! You are walking in your purpose, to first give Him all the glory and worship Him!! He has a plan for you today!!
When they ask you why you so joyful, so energetic, so on fire!!??
Tell them " He woke me up like dis!!"
Today, pay it forward. Pray that God uses you to be a blessing to someone today. If you are feeling hopeless, take the focus off what you are going through and look to Jesus. You taking the focus off you, can free you to be used by Him.
Paying it forward, does not always mean financial. There is someone that needs a kind word or gesture from you today.
Pray about it first, then listen, God will show you who He wants you to bless.
So today, pay it forward. 2 Corinthians 9:6
Yesterday, I was talking with someone and they reminded me, if I had stayed married it would have been my anniversary. Funny, I never thought about it. When I received my divorce papers in 2008, I remember feeling some sadness.
But God, yesterday, the peace of God came over me. I can look back and truly say all things worked together for my good and He gets all the glory. He blessed my mess!!
I wanted the divorce. I filed for the divorce. I left him. The awesomeness of it all, is God showed me in the midnight hour, months before the final decree came, I was wrong and I had to repent. That night, I was truly with the Lord. When I repented to God that was not enough, I had a Abraham experience, because God told me to now go to my husband and apologize and offer to reconcile. I truly in my heart of hearts did not want to reconcile. But when we tell God, yes, we have to be willing to trust Him, no matter how we feel. I did just what God told me to do, my ex husband was not ready for a reconciliation. But that was okay, because I did what I was suppose to do and God continued the work He began in me, and here we are today. My ex is happily remarried and I absolutely love him and his family. I am happy and dedicated to the Lord.
I shared this today because first, God told me to share. Secondly, to remind you that even when you make a mistake, when you operate out of His will, there is hope. He will forgive you, He will bless you, He still has a plan for you. So don't give up. Don't quit. Keep your head up.
Whatever happens today, I want you to say, "Whatever". Why whatever? Because no matter what it is, God got it. You do not have to even worry, just say "Whatever".
You walk in the job today and they tell you your services are no longer needed, "whatever".
Your spouse say they do not want to be married anymore, "whatever".
The overdue bill notice come in the mail, "whatever".
Your child tell you they have decided not to go to college, "whatever".
The more you say whatever, the more you realize God got it. You begin to remember, all things work out for your good, because you love God and you are called according to His purpose. You will look up to the hills from where your strength comes from, because you know all your strength comes from Him. You will remember you have the power and authority to trample on the serpents and the scorpions. You are more than a conqueror. So put a whatever on it!!! God got it!!
As we prepare to start our work week, let's remember the Word most of us received on yesterday. God did not give you that customized message for you to forget about it as you go about your week. The message you received was for you. It is your fuel for the week. The Word is to remind you that whatever comes your way, God got it!! The Word reminds you, not by your strength, but by His strength you can make it.
Go back and read the message you received on Sunday. Meditate on the message.
I was reminded yesterday on purpose. It was confirmation for me, that I have a purpose. I can honestly say today, I am headed in the right direction. God has given me the vision and He is directing my steps. All honor and glory goes the Him.
Take a moment and reflect on what He is telling you, your purpose is waiting on you.
You have cried. You have prayed...
You have prayed some more.
You had your family and friends pray.
This morning, God said "Now Fast".
The issue concerning you, is spiritual and it is only by praying and fasting that you will breakthrough.
Focus on Him
Abstain from the distractions
Study His Word
Trust Him Completely
This is heavy in my spirit this morning. Matter of fact, it has been heavy in my spirit since yesterday. Someone need to be reminded, God said yes! You are standing at the doorway of your purpose, you see the vision before you, but because the door appears to have shut, you feel defeated.
Well, God said yes!! When God said yes, that was and is all, that matters. Let me tell you, everyone will not understand the purpose, the vision, or the journey, and that is okay, it is not for them. It is for you, and only you. The naysayers can not stop it. The doors that appear closed can not stop it. You can not even stop it. God said yes!!! Yes!! Yes!! Yes!!
Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
