As you step into the New Year…remember God’s promise. Do not fear! Do not be discouraged! He is with you and He will not leave you or fail you! Trust Him to guide you on your journey. Plan quiet time to be with Him and know that He is God!! May this New Year be one in which you receive a deeper revelation of God’s love and faithfulness! ❤️
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” Isaiah 43:2 NIV
No matter what is happening in your life, never forget that the Lord is walking with you through it.
Lord, help me to look at YOU and not on what is going on around me!
“…Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me.” Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”” Matthew 14:29-31 ESV
I realized today as I was grocery shopping that I needed a bigger cart! I was planning on just running in and getting a few things, but ended up shopping my whole list (and more)!
As I look at this overflowing cart, I hear the Lord saying, “Do you have enough room in your life to receive all that I desire to give you? Is your cart too small? Do you expect for Me just to give you the bare necessities or do you expect to receive abundantly from Me? Are you ready to receive more than you can ask or think of?”
YES, LORD! I want to make room in my life for all that You desire to give me. Help me to let go of those things that take up space and are not of You. Forgive me when I expect too little – not trusting You for the greater things in my life.
YOU are my abundance, LORD! My life is full when You have first place!
My “cart” is ready to be filled!! For YOUR glory, LORD! And when it is full, may I use it all for Your kingdom…and then be ready to be filled again.
May my life be enlarged to receive ALL that You desire to pour into it. And may I in turn pour it out to others. In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!!
