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
Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
