Thank you, Lord.
I hear you speaking in the silence. I have learned to look for you in everything. I know your voice because I am your sheep. I hear your audible voice. I hear your silent voice. You speak to me every day with your love, mercy, grace, and forgiveness. I am in awe of your power and majesty. I know your eyes are on the sparrow, but even so, your eyes are on me. Thank you, Lord. Continue to speak Lord for your servant is listening.
I love you, Lord.
Scripture: And the LORD came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel answered, Speak; for thy servant heareth. 1 Samuel 3:10, KJV
It is not what you see but how you see it that may make all the difference. When life suddenly shake; are you struggling or is God moving strategically on your behalf? I understand things occur that will take your wind away, but if you are still standing, God is still moving! If you are still breathing, God is still shifting!
Is there more money than month or is God strategically teaching you to be a good steward?
Did you lose your job or is God strategically putting you in position for better?
Are you struggling in your relationships or is God strategically teaching you how to love, forgive, and support others?
IT IS NOT A STRUGGLE; IT IS A STRATEGIC MOVE OF GOD!!!
Prayer: Thank you, LORD! You are faithful. You are loving. You are continually moving on our behalf. You are strategically shifting us into our purpose, and we give you glory. In Jesus name, Amen.
Scripture: My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; he is mine forever. Psalm 73:26 NLT
Recently a tree landed on my home. Now, I know for many, the first thought is one of great concern. However, let me assure you, all is well. The first thing that came to my mind when I saw the tree, when I saw the tree-made skylight in the roof was "HE KEPT ME!"
Yes, I was in the house.
However, when I looked up again, God reminded me that he told me he was doing some NEW things for me in 2022 (you can shout right here)! But then he said, and this is the word for you today, "Getting to the new will not always be easy or comfortable, however if you continue to trust me, if you continue to go through, there will be NEW!"
I began to see a new roof, new floors, new bathrooms, and new paint!!! But I realize it is not about the NEW tangible stuff but the NEW he is doing with me! More patience, more peace, more strength, and another reason to give him praise!
I pray this encourages you, if you are waiting on something NEW, keep pressing, keep trusting, keep standing, keep believing, your NEW is on the way!! Hallelujah!
Prayer: Thank you Lord. You are Mighty! You are Faithful! You are ALL POWERFUL! Take us by the hand and guide us this day. Let your will be done in our lives. When we see the world falling apart in our lives give us the strength to see you and have peace. Remind us that all things work together for the good, for those who love you and are called according to your purpose. We give you all glory, honor, and praise. In Jesus name, Amen.
Scripture: And he that sat upon the throne said, "Behold I will make all things new."
Revelation 21:5 KJV
As a person who dabbles in gardening, there is nothing like the joy of seeing the harvest. Planting seeds is only the beginning. The process can be long and tedious. Sometimes an insect or animal may try to harm the plant. I may water too often or not water enough. But if one plant produces fruit, I become overjoyed!!
I do not know who this is for, but I came to tell you continue planting seeds because you will reap a harvest. Don't give up! Keep pushing! Keep praying! Keep writing! Keep teaching! Keep preaching! Keep speaking! God is pleased!
Prayer: Lord, strengthen me today to do your will. Remind me, in my weakness you are made strong; I can do all things through you who gives me strength and I must run and not be weary, for everything I do is for your glory. In Jesus name, Amen.
Scripture: I have planted, Apollus watered; but God gave the increase. 1 Corinthians 3:6 KJV
Recently, I have been thinking on the story of the woman with the alabaster box. The account found in Luke 7: 36-50. This woman is pressing my spirit. As I read the beginning verses, her knowledge of the situation is inspiring. There are two things this woman is sure of, one, she knows she is a sinner. Secondly, she knows Jesus is going to be at the religious leader's home. But, knowing this did not stop her. She must have been aware that the religious leaders and those in attendance would know her as a sinner as well. Matter of fact, further down in the verses the man alludes to her sin.
Have you ever walked in a room and the room becomes quiet? I can only imagine the reaction when she, a sinner, walked in the home. However, she did not quit. She took her precious box, poured out her heart, in spite of who she was and what the people thought they knew.
My questions for you today, is where is your box? What one thing is holding you back from repentance? from worship? Are you ready to give it all Jesus?
Prayer: Lord, you reign! You are Alpha and Omega! You are Lord of Lords! You are King of Kings! Give us the strength to come to you and repent daily. Give us the faith to worship you daily. We recognize we are imperfect but you God are perfect! Create in us a clean heart and renew a right spirit within us. We give you praise, honor, and glory. In Jesus name, Amen.
Scripture: The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. Psalm 51: 17 KJV
One week ago today, something I did not plan happened. However, what I realized, when it is not part of our plan, God still has a plan. So, I am going to continue to P.L.A.N.
I am going to continue to walk in Purpose.
I am going to continue to Love God with my whole heart.
I am going to continue to ACCEPT His plan.
I am going to continue to Nourish my relationship with Him.
No matter the circumstances of life, God deserves all the glory and the honor! I have learned to be content in whatever situation, like Paul.
Prayer: Thank you, Lord! You are all we need. We accept your plan for our lives. It is for you to get glory and honor. In Jesus name, Amen.
Scripture: You can make many plans, but the Lord's purpose will prevail. Proverbs 19:21 NLT
When God shows you an event, circumstance, or situation, you can trust it will come to pass. It may not happen immediately, but it will happen. Recently, God show me or gave me a feeling, (discernment) regarding a specific situation in my life. When that very situation came to light,
I could only laugh and thank God for the manifestation.
I wonder if that is how some in the Bible reacted after God prepared them for what was coming. For instance, Noah and the ark. People must have thought he was crazy, but when the rain came, they wanted to get on the ark!!! Do not let others encourage you or discourage you from what God has shown you, even if you seem to be waiting an eternity.
A co-signer is not needed when God is doing the leading.
Trust God! If He said it, it will come to pass! Wait on the manifestation of his power!
Prayer: Thank you, Lord for what you have manifested and what is about to manifest in our lives. We give you praise for the manifestation of protection, love, strength, and guidance.
In Jesus name, Amen.
Scripture: But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
1 Corinthians 12:7 KJV
The word of focus this month is assignment. As the month prepares to close,
God has revealed several things concerning assignment.
1. Assignments are individual.
2. Assignments are for the kingdom.
3. Others are attached to your assignment.
4. Assignments must be completed.
Do you know your assignment? We all have an assignment. Assignments are given by God. Matter of fact, before you were formed, God had determined your assignment/assignments. It is hard to imagine all the intricacies of your life were determined before your arrival, but there is nothing impossible for God!
So, know your assignment and do that!
Prayer: Lord, I commit my actions to you knowing your plans will succeed.
In Jesus name, Amen.
