May we not be “satisfied” to stay exactly as we are today! May we seek and desire to rise up into the revelation and positioning of who we are in Christ! Growth means change. Have NO FEAR to grow into what the Lord has prepared for you!
“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.” (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV)
“What I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light; and what you hear whispered in your ear, proclaim upon the housetops.”Matthew 10:27 NASB
Jesus was speaking this to His disciples. And I believe Jesus speaks these words to us today. We should have no fear to speak and proclaim what He is speaking to us!
May we walk in boldness and love as we share what God is saying to His people. May we invite and listen to His precious “whispers.”
God is speaking! Are we listening?
“God does not further our spiritual Life in spite of our circumstances, but in and by our circumstances.” ~Oswald Chambers
“And we know that God 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
It is comforting to me to realize that no matter what happens in my life, God can use it to mold and shape me into a better person. He can use circumstances to give me a greater understanding; a deeper revelation; and a deeper love for those that have gone through the same thing.
He uses circumstances that could devastate and destroy us as tools to draw us closer to Him. He uses these times to exhibit His strength as we are at our weakest.
Beloved, are you in a valley right now? Do you feel the darkness around you and believe there is no way out? Do not fear!! God is with you! HE HAS A PLAN!!
His plan is to guide you through the darkness into the Light! His plan is to release His peace and strength within you so you can climb out of the valley with Him. And as you look back on this “valley time” you will see how God used this time to raise you to greater heights!
Look up!! Do you see the Lord’s hand reaching out to you? Grab it and leave the valley behind!!
We serve a BIG God!
Nothing is too difficult for Him. Nothing comes as a “surprise” to Him.
He knows everything that has happened in our lives…He knows everything that is happening now…and He knows everything that will happen in the future.
Don’t fret! Don’t worry! Don’t fear!! He is with you and will guide you in your journey. He wants you to have victory over every circumstance!
We serve a BIG God!!
