I am praying for a worship spirit today. I pray that all God's children, if you go to a church or not, will worship God today. Worship Him because He is God. Yes, I know it is a new year holiday: but God is to be worshipped everyday. His grace and mercy saw you through the year and His grace and mercy will see you through the new year.
Worship Him because He is Jehovah Jireh, NIssi, Shalom, and Rapha! He is El Shadai! He is Wonderful! He is King of Kings! He is Lord of Lords! He is Almighty!! He is God!!
God has great things in store for His children. He is about to open up doors you thought were closed. He is about to position you in places, you never dreamed of. The power of the anointing in your life is breathtaking. Mighty women and men of God, get ready! I feel the Spirit of the Lord and He is giving you everything you need for kingdom building! Glory to God!!
3 days before the new year, do you have plans for the upcoming year?
Buying a house? Getting married? Having a baby? Starting a business? Traveling?
I think it is great to have a plan or two. I like the idea of a vision board, although I have never created a board...
We must talk to God about our plans. Remember the word tells us, He knows the plans. Do not get frustrated when your plan do not go as you expected. Remember God knows best.
I have shared this before, but when 2016 started, I had no plans to become a self- published author. The truth is, as I look back, I am not sure what my plans were for 2016.
Isn't it exciting to know, you are going into a new year with God's plan. I feel like a child on Christmas morning. I am ready to slowly peel the wrapper off 2017 and see the wonderful gifts He have planned for me. Are you ready? Got plans?
Last Wednesday of 2016 and I want to share a word with you, EXPECTATION....
I want you to go into the new year with a spirit of EXPECTATION.
Expect great things.
Expect to accomplish your goals.
Expect your family, friends, and enemies to be blessed.
You will walk in 2017 victorious and you will walk out 2017 victorious!
Don't worry if 2016 wasn't the best. Take the lessons learned from 2016 and do better in 2017.
I am expecting great things for you!
I have a spirit of EXPECTATION so strong, I know it is not just for me..... the person reading this right now..... God has something for you!! He said 2016 was the set-up for 2017!!!
Merry Christmas to you and your family from One Word for Life Ministry, LLC.
I pray this day and everyday, blessings, peace, love, and joy to you and yours!
When I awoke this morning, the first thought I had was, He changed me. In my little feeble mind, I can not imagine the magnitude of our Saviour.
Before I was formed, He knew that at this hour, minute, second, I would be writing these words. Before I was formed, He knew the day I would also die. Before I was formed, He knew the plan He had for me...
Before we were formed, He knew us.
He sent His Son in the world as a baby, knowing the plan for His coming. He knew the ministry, the miracles, the disciples, the death, and the resurrection!!! He knew it all!!
I am so grateful for the change in me. I came to HIm as I was, and He made me whole.
I will not address the politics of Christmas or the commericailizing of Christmas. I have my mind on Jesus. I celebrate Jesus everyday. This is what I know, without a doubt, He came, died, and was resurrected. He lives!!!
HE is the reason for the season.
I was given an assignment. This assignment has given me joy and pain. I have often complained of it being a thorn in my side. I have prayed that the "cup" be removed from me. I have complained of being drained and tired. I have looked forward to this assignment ending.
Well, I finally have a "give up" spirit. My "give up" spirit is a good thing. I have prayed and prayed and I am going to look at this assignment differently.
I am going to give up the complaining.
I am going to give up the feeling of defeat.
I am going to give up the negative thoughts.
I am going to give up trying to figure it out.
I am requesting that you look at your assignment differently. What assignment?
The assignment that God has given you and you are fighting against.
If you stop for a second, God will show you the assignment He has given you.
Now, let's look at it differently:
1. God trust you with the assignment
2. God will provide everything you need for the assignment
I suggest that as we continue on the assignment He has for us, that we stay in the Word. Write down some scriptures and commit them to memory. Here are some I use: Isaiah 54:17,
2 Corinthians 5:7, Romans 8:6, 18, 28, 30, 31, 38-39 (I like all of chapter 8).
I was recently added to a group on FB. This morning I was thinking about the commonality of what bought us together. It appears that a hobby bought us together, but I know better.
God orders our steps everyday. There is no chance or coincidence. This group of women, our season in this group, is ordained by God. This group continues to show me how women can celebrate, encourage, motivate, and inspire each other. If we love God with our heart, mind, and soul, surely we can love our neighbor. It is the commandment given by Jesus.
We as women do not attack each other all the time, as protrayed by social media and popular television shows. We are not in competition, we running the same race. We all want to see His face. We all want love. We all want to share love. We all want to be good people. Do not buy into what is being heavily protrayed in the world. If you have not found a group of women/men (for the fellas) that can encourage you, pray about it, God will send the right people in your life.
I know He will, I am a witness.
I want to say to every woman in my circle today, thank you!!! I love you!!
Stay wrapped in God's love, grab a sister and let her know she is wrapped in His love, too.
Matthew 22: 37-40
Are you struggling to find the right Christmas gifts? Can I offer you a challenge today?
This Christmas day and give "The Gift". Tell one person about "The Gift" and watch how people will come in droves to experience "The Gift".
The only gift, the best gift to give is Jesus. Jesus was sent that the world through Him might be saved. The whole world!! The best gift to give is Jesus, here are some reasons why:
1. This gift will not break
2. This gift is everlasting
3. This gift has extra in the package ( love, hope, peace, strength, and more)
4. This gift is customized, what is for you is for you.
5. This gift loves, unconditionally.
John 3:16-17, Luke 1: 31
Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
