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.

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).

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.

Mastering Where Your At!

God our Father wants the very best for us, but the next level and the doors that are open are dependent upon you successfully navigating the current course your on.  This course may be a situation or circumstance, a person a job or another barrier strategically positioned for you to exhibit the following.

(1) Greater trust and faith in God our Father.

(2)Humility in the midst of the fire

(3) Praying for your enemies (they are sent to catapult you further)

(4) Change of mindset that you no longer trust self but trust God

As you begin to follow this course new opportunities are right before you.  God will do exceedingly and abundantly above all you can ask or think.

You can only excel to your next level of blessings when you kill the GIANT on the level your currently on.  Master your current level.

Consuming Fire – That you may look more like HIM

That you may look more like Him

Websters defines “Refining” as the process of purification.  In order to purify anything, it must be taken through a process.  That process requires the stretching, stripping and removing away of some things so that the finished product can complete its “Perfect Work”.

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.  Faith, Fire and Fervency are needed to walk through the open door, but even as you apply your Faith, Fire and Fervency, 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 Bulldog Tenacity – But also Humility in obtaining the Goods.  Be it the fight is in the spiritual but playing out in the natural, know that both can be applied at the same time.

Faith, Fire and Fervency.

So many of us know what we’re supposed to be doing, but don’t have the wherewithal, the endurance or the momentum to even get started.

Many are tied to the past of childhood hurt, abuse, divorce, separation, loss of income, loss of a loved one – and the list goes on.  Healing of your past hurt allows you to aid in the healing of another.

God has given us all that we need to succeed in this life. His word says that He will supply our every need and will do exceedingly and abundantly above all we could ask or think.  Seek Him first and all else will be provided.

In this season many doors have been opened.  But these doors require something of you. They require more faith, more fire and more fervency. They require you to reach back and pull someone else along.  They require you to be your brother and your sisters keeper.  What is life if we aren’t using it for the greater good of the Kingdom and using the Word and Gods principles to shape and mold the lives of others.  In order to obtain the goods, something more is required of you.  More Faith, More Fire, More Fervency.  Aid in the shaping of others and He will aid in the shaping of you.
