Counsel of the Lord

Without counsel plans fail, but with advisors they succeed. ⁣ Proverbs 15:22⁣

⁣Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. ‭‭Psalm‬ ‭1:1-2‬ ‭ESV‬‬⁣


⁣God does not expect us to figure things out by ourselves. As we travel this road of life, there are choices and decisions that must be made, plans that need to be fulfilled. ⁣

⁣It is okay and even to our benefit to seek out the counsel of others. But, it is important to be aware of whose counsel we listen to. In Psalms we are reminded that we should not walk in the counsel of the wicked, but delight in the law of the Lord. ⁣

⁣We are told in Proverbs that with many advisors our plans will succeed. But, we need to make sure that we don’t remove the Lord from our decision-making process. Yes, listen to the counsel and advice of others. But, remember to take it to the Lord before making the final decision. He knows exactly what we should do and when we should do it. And He knows exactly what we shouldn’t do!⁣

⁣May we take the time to go to the perfect Counselor and put our plans in His hands. And may we know that He will guide and direct us in His perfect will. ⁣

Thank You, Lord, for loving us and for helping us as we journey with each other and with You. Help us, Lord, to seek Your guidance, Your will, and Your presence in everything we do. Thank You for not leaving us to figure things out apart from You. We are so thankful! ⁣

DON’T STOP!


⁣“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”⁣
⁣‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:16-18‬ ‭ESV‬‬⁣


⁣Yesterday was the National Day of Prayer – a day when we are called to unite our hearts as one and pray for our nation, our leaders, and our communities. I love that we have this set aside time to join together as a nation! It also is a reminder that prayer is important. It makes a difference. It is needed. ⁣

⁣But, I also would like to take this time – the day following this National Day of Prayer – to remind us that EVERY DAY is a day of prayer! Prayer makes a difference and is needed every day of our lives. It is an ongoing, continual communication with our Lord. We are to “pray without ceasing.” In other words, DON’T STOP!!⁣

⁣Don’t stop praying just because we may not feel like it. Feelings have nothing to do with it. We pray because God desires us to do it and also because it is through prayer that our lives and circumstances can be changed. WE are changed!!⁣

⁣We are to rejoice (feel joy, celebrate, triumph) and be thankful in all circumstances! We may not feel joy or be thankful FOR the circumstances…but we feel joy because God is with us IN the circumstances. He is within us to enable us to GO THROUGH and to COME OUT victorious and stronger! HALLELUJAH!!⁣

⁣May we come into alignment with the WILL OF GOD:⁣
⁣1) rejoice always⁣
⁣2) Pray without ceasing⁣
⁣3) Give thanks in all circumstances⁣

Thank You, Lord, for always being with us to enable us to carry out Your will. We do not have to rejoice, pray, and give thanks apart from You! YOU give us the words, YOU give us the strength, YOU give us the desire to walk in obedience to You. We join You in our journey… day-by-day, hour-by-hour, minute-by-minute. AMEN!!⁣

God’s Will!!

Years ago, I was so blessed by the revelation that there is NOTHING that God asks us to do that He doesn’t equip us to do it!!

This takes all of the stress of saying “yes” to the Lord away. We don’t have to do it on our own. We don’t have to figure it all out. We just need to make ourselves available and trust Him to work in and through us.

What is the Lord asking you to do that you have pushed away and tried to forget because you are afraid that you can’t do it?

Brothers & Sisters, step out in the anointing of the Lord and do it!! In the doing, you will discover that God is there – He provides the strength, the knowledge, the timing, and the ability to do His will.

JUST DO IT!!

BLOOM!!

Good morning! I had this plant on my porch but wanted to enjoy it more…so I brought it inside.

As I’m typing this, I feel the Lord saying that He is getting ready to move some of you to a different place. It isn’t necessarily a “big” move…but a repositioning. He will be moving you to a place of greater influence and ministry for Him!

HIS Beauty will shine through you and that will not only give Him greater joy but also those around you!

As I placed the plant, I found myself turning it so I could get the greatest view of its blooms. The Lord causes a “turning and shifting” in our lives that will bring Him the greatest glory!

Brothers & Sisters! YOU are a beautiful planting within the Lord’s Garden! Let the Master Gardener do His work!!

May you BLOOM where you are planted by God Almighty!!

Weightlifters of the Lord

This morning as I was writing another post on my Facebook page, I began to have such a sense of a “building up” in the atmosphere! Brothers & Sisters! God is moving…God is strengthening His people for what’s coming! We ARE the body of Christ!

[vision]. I see a weightlifter 🏋️. The Lord is strengthening us to lift and carry the “weight” of His glory and presence into all the world! We are in “training!” We have our own “personal Trainer!” Lean in and listen and obey the voice of the Lord!!

IT’S TIME!!

Go Into All The World!

We don’t have to travel thousands of miles to obey The Lord to “Go into all the world…”

The world is wherever we find ourselves at any given moment: in our homes; in our workplaces; in our churches; or simply going about our daily errands.

Yes, some are called to far off regions…but some are called to their own communities.

Both are needed and both are important!!

May we walk in boldness, power, authority and love wherever The Lord has placed us!!
