A New Beginning

A New Beginning

Even as the previous season comes to a close, know that I have given you new life, new purpose and the ability to dream again.  If you would take ahold of all that is in front of you and forget that of the old, you will see that this is a new and a set time for you to live again.

God says my child know that I am with you, and I will never forsake you.  For the trials, toils and snares were building your spiritual muscles.  Know that this building allows you to have the ability to breathe life into others.  Know that this is a season of open doors if you will have it.  Know that the doors are open for what I’d placed in you which is my will for your life.  As you begin to take hold and have faith in me, not your situations, not your circumstances, you will see that all has worked together for your good.

In this season, grasp hold of all that is before you.  Walk through and walk through with purpose.  Walk through and walk through with perseverance, knowing that I am with you and I will lighten the path before you with each step.  As you begin to trust me and have greater faith, know that with every step you will see that I’ve been here the entire time.

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven.

Its Your Time – Its Your Season – Its a New Beginning

Live, Love, Laugh & Learn.

Keep Calm and Carry On – Trust God

Keep Calm and Carry On – Trust God

Don’t Stop Moving Forward – Keep Believing, Keep Trusting, Keep Moving Ahead.

Many times in life, as we begin to step out on God and pursue our goals, our dreams and our passions, the enemy will send the sound of discouragement.  Maybe its failure – or what looks like failure.  A marriage on the rocks, a sick family member, financial woes, children acting out. Maybe a friend or family member who truly doesn’t mean you any ill will, they just don’t have the faith for their own life, so how could they see what God has designed for yours.   It could be several issues that you may be facing today and you want to give up and throw in the towel.

God says – my child its not the time to give up.  Stir your faith and believe that I am with you.  Greater is HE that is in you than He that is in this world. Hold my hand and trust – says God.

In this season of breakthrough, whatever your breakthrough may be – know that God is on your side and he is with you as you are walking through to the other side.

Isaiah 43:2-3 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.

Even as you cross over into your new, know that He is with you.

Your Time – Your Moment

Timing is everything.

In this season of governmental order, perfection and establishment , Doors are open for all who will receive and walk through. Opposition will present itself but I have not given you the spirit of fear, I formed you for dominion. Walk in that dominion now and know that I have sent a select few to help guide you through this process. Know that where you are going they have been and through this process, breakthrough shall occur for all.  As they bring you through they will be brought through their own processes.  This is a season of divine relationships and covenants being strengthened.  Know who you are and who God would have you attached too.

In this season – even as doors are opened – there will be a refining process.  The process will be likened unto a consuming fire brought to purge and remove everything that is not useful.  Fearless Faith is needed to walk through the open door, but even as you apply your Faith, know that perfection and refining is at work.  In some cases, this will require a change of environment, change of mindset, change of attitude and change of heart.  This also requires Perseverance, Endurance and Tenacity.  Humility shall be your response in order to obtain the Goods.  The fight is in the spiritual but playing out in the natural, for we wrestle not against flesh and blood.  Through it all, God is setting you in a wealthy place to aide and assist the masses.  In this season, what you do unto your brother, you do unto God. Watch your response – even when it appears to be right.  God has your back, He is your refuge and your strength,  a very present help in the time of need.

Your Time, Your Season, Your Moment.. Now!!!

Believe

In this season of Order, Establishment and Perfection, God requires of us a response.

Order comes with a cost, Being Established comes with a cost and Perfection comes with a cost.  Cost is defined as the amount paid or required in payment for a purchase.  We have areas in our lives that we need to change.   In order to perfect something you have to chisel away at the parts that are not needed, you have to mold and sculpt the design just fitting for the work required of it.  It simply means, Change is Required.

Do you believe that God can change that situation in your house, on your job, in your family, for your business, in your church, at your school?  He is the God of all.

God says: In this season of perfection, know that I am changing and rearranging some things, all for My Glory and all for your benefit.  God says that I require of you a new belief system.  I require that you go in praising but that you come out thanking.  I require that you put on a new robe.  I today give you beauty for ashes and joy for sorrow.  As you put on your new garment, I require that you continue to believe and continue to have a heart of thanksgiving as I unfold the plans that I have for you.  In this time and season, know the your right on course, for perfection and order comes with a cost.  I know the plans that I have for you and those plans require a new level from you.  A new level of prayer, a new level of praise, a new level of trust, a new level of expectation.  I have your best interest at heart.  Believe in this season that All Things Are New.  As you continue to draw closer to me, you shall see the full manifestation of my promises says God.

Do You Believe.

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (NIV).

Humility and Submission

Change through Humility and Submission

Humility is defined as the quality or condition of being humble;  modest opinion or estimate of one’s own importance, rank, etc.

Submission is defined as the action or fact of accepting or yielding to a superior force or to the will or authority of another person.

“Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 18:1-4).

In this season, God will use His sent Ambassadors that are strategically set in specific regions to transform and speak forth change, destiny and purpose.

Even in a season of shaking, perfection and order – false idols will be destroyed so that we can Glorify the Only Wise God.  In the next 6-8 months God will align the saints with those specific to their destiny.  He will align some for seasons and some for a lifetime but for the specific purpose of change in one, that change in another can begin.  As God provides his provision in this season know that Humility and Submission is key in the shaking, breaking, order and perfection processes.  Open Doors of access are here, however we must secure the principle of a thing in order to advance and move forward.

“Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted” (Matthew 23:12). ”If you know these things, you are blessed if you do them” (John 13:17).

Total and Complete Surrender

Total and Complete Surrender

As we are in a season of “Open Doors” “Order” and “Perfection”, God says surrender all.  That which you think you have surrendered, you have not.  The very thing that you hold on to is the very thing that I want you to let go of so that this next work in your life is total, complete and lacking nothing.  God is unable to freely move and reign in the life of believers when we have false gods that we will not let go of.  Anything that you worship is what God asks you to surrender.  Whether it be a relationship, a job, a child, whether it be doubt in your abilities, whether it be an old habit or sin that keeps knocking at your door, God says surrender.  Surrender all and allow me to do my perfect work in you, total, complete and lacking nothing.  The next new, the next level, the next dimension requires “total surrender.”  God will provide….

Gen 22:2-14 He said, “Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.” So Abraham rose early in the morning, saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and his son Isaac. And he cut the wood for the burnt offering and arose and went to the place of which God had told him. On the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes and saw the place from afar. Then Abraham said to his young men, “Stay here with the donkey; I and the boy will go over there and worship and come again to you.” And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it on Isaac his son. And he took in his hand the fire and the knife. So they went both of them together. …

Webster defines surrender as: To give up, to abandon or relinquish control over.

As human beings it not within our own nature to naturally surrender.  Surrendering takes trust in the very thing that you are surrendering to.

Abraham’s trust in God was so sound that he simply followed the Lord’s direction and in the end said “The Lord will provide”.    Surrendering takes complete submission to that which is greater than us.

Who’s Job is it “Anyway”

Who’s Job is it “Anyway”

People who genuinely serve, simply have a heart to “serve”.  When it’s from the true heart of God, there are no motives, there aren’t any returns required and there isn’t an hidden agenda.  They simply enjoy “serving”.  And while there are no motives in their service, the return is oftentimes greater than the output.

When it comes to our brothers and sisters the goal should be to lift another up, to push to the next level and to see success in the eyes of others.

The questions for today are these:  Are you your brothers keepers simply because you enjoy seeing the success of others?  Do you serve simply because you obtain fulfillment from aiding in the lifting up of another? What is your agenda?

The other side of this seasons open door has more people in front of it than where you currently are.  There are more too help, more too love, more too seek to better understand.  There is more required of you – therefore as you advance to more – know that there is greater on the other side.  Luke 12:28 To whom much is given, much is required.
