Ephesians 3:19 - “Be filled with all the fullness of God."
We want our whole being to be so full of the life of Jesus that the Holy Spirit can speak and act through us. We want the Word in our heart and the faith it produces. We want to live always in Him.
We cry out for the inspiration of the God of power. We want to act in the Holy Spirit. We want to breathe out divine life. We want the glory, miracles, and wonders that work out the purpose of God for our life.
We want to be absorbed by God, and we want to know nothing among men except Jesus and Him crucified(1 Corinthians 2:2).
Psalm 32:8 - “The Lord says, "I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you."
Sometimes you may look around and see that things have changed and that you need to move in another direction. While your vision is still the same, the provisions God is using to bring about that vision have changed.
And now, in order to continue moving in God’s purpose for your life, you will have to employ new tactics and venture on a new path. Change is not easy. Don’t allow your fear of moving and changing get in the way of your destiny.
This is where it is important to keep your eyes open and your heart open to advancing in the next step in God’s calling on your life.
Matthew 24:45 - "Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord has made ruler over his household?"
Who is faithful? The one who spends his time doing what God has called him to do. Or as Jesus put it, the one who takes up his cross and follows Him. The one who denies his fleshly desires and spends his life on the things God desires him to do.
God may be calling you to pray for the sick or to disciple a new Christian. But you're busy, so you glide on with good intentions and tell God you'll do it later. Well later is NOW.
Decide today that you are going to be the faithful and wise servant. Serve His interests instead of your own. Do you want Him to show Himself strong for you? Then take up Jesus' thoughts today. Discover and take up His purpose for your life. Now is the time to be faithful!
2 Corinthians 5:17 - "All things have become new." 1 Corinthians 3:23 - "you are Christ's and Christ is God's."
God means for us to walk in this royal way. Jesus left us the responsibility of allowing Him to bring forth through us the greater works (John 14:12).
If we do not step into God's purpose for our life, it is a tragedy. God is waiting for us to act. Jesus lived a life of perfect activity. There is no standing still."As He is, so are we in this world." (1 John 4:17).We must dare to press on until God comes forth in mighty power -- press on until Jesus is glorified.
Matthew 18:10 - "See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven."
We have angels assigned to us. Hebrews 1:14further reveals that their purpose is to minister to us (on our behalf). Psalm 91teaches on the ministry of angels to God's people. It is the combination of our faith in God and His faithfulness to us that releases the angels to our aid. Speak forth your faith and He will send forth His angels on your behalf.
In the days to come, I am becoming so established in God's Word and power that nothing in the world order will be able to phase me. I shall not be afraid of evil tidings because my heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord
Philippians 3:13 - "I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead"
There are new places for us to move that are assignments and alignments. In order for us to position ourselves for the new, we have to unload the old. The past is mostly used to get us ready for the future.
In this new place there is healing, clarity, boldness, purpose (revelation of God's purpose for your life), provision, reward and unknown things that God will reveal when we get there.
2 Chronicles 16:9 - "The eyes of the LORD search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him."
So often we try to figure things out instead of just trusting God and doing what He says in His Word. As a result, we end up in disobedience -- which always leads to unbelief. Don't let the giants in your life scare you into hiding. Let God know you'll trust Him and His Word no matter what the circumstances say or look like. Then worship Him knowing you'll see Him demonstrate His power and faithfulness on your behalf.
Affirmation: I keep my heart faithful toward God so that He shows Himself strong on my behalf.
Philippians 3:13,14 - “Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”
Press into God by “adding to.” Add a few minutes more to your prayer time, Praise a few minutes more. Stretch yourself. Press through the limitations your flesh has tried to impose on you. See yourself turning from the past toward the future God has for you in Christ Jesus.
Settle in your spirit and in your mind what you need to do to advance in God’s PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE. Now, see yourself rising up and marching toward those marks with faith in your heart as the Holy Spirit leads you and give you His strength to get there.
Isaiah 26:9 - “My soul yearns for you in the night.”
What is the most worthwhile thing you can experience on earth? Nothing less than God Himself! What is the first and most important thing to be done each day? It is nothing less than to seek, to know, to live, and to praise God.
So begin every day of the year with the impassioned prayer of David:“O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you…in a dry and weary land” (Psalm 63:1).As you persevere in this, you will learn to expect the presence of God to surround you throughout the day.
So be ablaze with His passion! And you will step into a new confidence this day. You will not be fooled by the voice of the intimidator, but you will rise up with more freedom and spontaneity than ever before. You will rise up "wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove"! (Matthew 10:16)
"And the God of peace will swiftly pound satan to a pulp under your feet! And the wonderful favor of our Lord Jesus will surround you." (Romans 16:20)
John 8:39 - "They answered and said to Him, 'Abraham is our father.' Jesus said to them, 'If you are Abraham's children, do the deeds of Abraham.'"Abraham was an alien and a stranger on the earth. The goal of his life was to have a place in what God…Continue
