A NEW SEASON
The Lord keeps reminding me that I/we are in a new season in His Kingdom.
I have been trying to go through my clothes and donate those that do not need to go with me in this new spiritual season of ministry and life.
A few days ago I felt a strong call to get my desk and file cabinets in order (I have one 4 drawer and one 2 drawer). Oh, the precious nuggets I am finding – lost and hidden in all of the miscellaneous “stuff.”
How many precious things of the Lord are lost and hidden among all of the things we felt needed to be held onto?
I feel that the Lord is calling me to sift through a lot of things of the past because I need to make room for all of the things He is bringing into my life NOW!! PRAISE GOD!!
I find myself becoming excited as I organize past sermons, devotions, teachings, prophetic words, prayers, and ministry events that the Lord used me to minister in for His glory and for the equipping of His Church! I am excited because as I am doing this I KNOW that I am making room for what is coming!!
Brothers & Sisters! Do you have room in your life for the NEW that the Lord wants to bring you? Is it time for you to do an inventory – physical and spiritual – and CLEAN OUT those things that will hold you back from receiving God’s abundance?
LORD!! Help us to weed out all of those things that clutter up our lives to the point that we can’t move quickly and freely with You into our future. Help us to prune our lives of “dead things” that do not promote NEW LIFE! Help us to speak LIFE to others and also to ourselves!
LORD!! You are the most precious thing in our lives!! May we not let anything take YOUR place!! May every decision we make come from embracing YOUR heart, YOUR perspective, YOUR love, and YOUR will!!
LORD!! We are ready to go forward with You!
Leaving old things behind…
“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:18-19 NIV
