I hear the Lord saying:
“My Spirit within you makes you MORE than a conqueror–so don’t settle for just getting by.
My Spirit within you equips you to do GREATER works than I did while walking this earth–so don’t underestimate your value in the kingdom.
Stop trusting your ability and start trusting MINE!
I AM calling you…”
Are we talking too much about all the wrong things going on in our lives or in the lives of others?
There comes a time when just talking about and lamenting our current circumstances needs to end. It’s time to start DECLARING and DECREEING God’s will in our circumstances and in the circumstances that others are facing!
The Lord is calling us to-
SPEAK LIFE! SPEAK LIFE! SPEAK LIFE!
And watch the circumstances turnaround! Watch the dead things come to life!!
WATCH AND SEE!!
OPEN YOUR MOUTH AND SPEAK!!
“The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life…”. Proverbs 10:11 NIV
“For it is not you who will be speaking—it will be the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.” Matthew 10:20 NLT
If we truly trust in the Lord, then we will be thankful even when we DON’T get those things that we are hoping for. We can’t see the whole picture. We don’t know what will hinder our growth in God’s journey for us and what will give us an extra boost for the journey.
Even if Satan blocks and hinders us in our journey, we can still be thankful! For God assures us that He:
“…causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28 NASB)
Yes, our amazing God can take what is meant to “kill, steal, and destroy” (John 10:10) and cause it to work together with His plan! And in the end, He still brings us to that place of His divine purpose and will! If we will but trust Him…
“Trust in Him at all times, O people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah.” (Psalms 62:8 NASB)
If we truly trust in the Lord, we can be thankful and praise Him in the good times and in the bad. He is with us during every trial…enabling us to walk through it with grace and love. He will never leave us to “work it out” on our own!
Trust Him at ALL times – Bless Him at ALL times – Praise Him at ALL times!!
“I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.” (Psalms 34:1 NASB)
Lord, teach me to trust you! Forgive me when I have let circumstances dictate my faith and trust in you. Whatever is going on in my life should never affect my faith in YOU! You are above my circumstances! Give me the eyes to see YOU above and beyond whatever is going on. Give me the eyes to see YOU with me as I walk through each moment of the day. You are above, beyond, and WITH me at all times! You are AMAZING and I love You and adore You and worship You! 💥💥❤️❤️💥💥
Yes…the Lord is calling YOU to a great work! But, don’t worry. He does not expect you to be able to do it with your own strength! He calls…and then He provides you with everything you need to do His Will! Are you ready to answer His call?
I also believe that what we consider a “great work” may be different than what the Lord defines as a “great work.”
Yes, reaching thousands of people through an Evangelistic Crusade is a great work. But, being obedient and reaching that one person the Lord has put in your path is also a great work!
Yes, Healing Crusades where thousands of people are healed is a great work! But, laying hands on and praying for that one person seeking God’s healing is also a great work!
I believe the GREAT WORK that the Lord is calling us all to is to LISTEN & OBEY!!
Whatever the Lord is encouraging you to do – THAT is the great work that is waiting for you!
And He does indeed provide you with everything you need to do His will!
Are you ready to answer His call?
I had what I would call a “divine appointment” today!
I was shopping in a local clothes store and went to the counter to purchase my items. As the young sales girl walks up to help me –she grabs her back and says, “My back hurts so bad! I’ve taken all kinds of medicine and nothing helps!”
(Well, the Lord opened the door-so I walked through.) I asked if I could pray for her back and she enthusiastically said, “Yes!”
We held hands and I prayed for her right at the counter. Need I say it was out loud. 😃.
When I was done, she was so thankful, and as I left I said, “I believe the Lord will continue to heal your back as you are working today!”
Ah Lord! Thank you for this precious encounter! May this young lady come face-to-face with Your healing Power and Love! In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
