I Will Step Aside and Let God...!

Maybe  you are believing for something, and you aren’t seeing anything happen. Don’t give up, go look again! If God has promised it, He will do it. It won’t be long until you see His showers of blessing pouring down on every area of your life!  Step aside and let God!

Because sometimes we doubt that God will tell us how to handle the circumstances facing us, or we have gotten tired of waiting on Him to act, we may aggressively move ahead, taking matters into our own hands, making decisions that are often not in sync with God's will and certainly not in our long-term best interests. We complicate our lives unnecessarily.  Sadly, because we've too often relied solely on ourselves, or we got impatient waiting on Him, we, in self-will missed the mark. We are learning to let God direct us. Each time we fulfill God's will, and we see His hand move on our behalf, we'll experience the perfection and the praises we'd sought for so long. We'll build our faith and learn this is a much simpler way to live.  

Wisdom says, “Let go and let God."  When we do let go, in an instant, relief comes. The fires die out. That which we opposed is less troubling, maybe even gone. We no longer feel the need to struggle, to always have our own way, to always be right or one-up our fellowman. The need may rise again; but, again we can turn to God, moving aside and letting Him lead, trusting Him and that relief and divine direction awaits us in God's bigger overall plan---we can be assured of its arrival and the blessings, victory, freedom, peace and serenity in walking in God greater plan, purpose and favor for our lives!

"If any of you needs wisdom, ask God and it will be freely given…"

" …His Strength is made perfect in Our Weakness…"

"As you live in close contact with Me, the Light of My Presence filters through you to bless others. Your weakness and woundedness are the openings through which the Light of the knowledge of My Glory shines forth. My strength and power show themselves most effective in your weakness."

" My grace, My favor, loving-kindness and mercy is enough for you,  sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear trouble manfully;  for My strength and power are made perfect, fulfilled, completed and show themselves most effective in your weakness!  Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Him may rest and dwell upon me, ultimately restoring me to a place of strength!"

"To Him who is able, capable and willing to do exceedingly and abundantly above all we could ask or pray, or imagine---be glory, honor and thanksgiving forevermore! "

"God can do anything—far more than we could ever imagine, guess or request in our wildest dreams!  Many of us have experienced this time and again.  He does it not by pushing us around;  but,  by working within us---His Spirit deeply and gently within us, leading, guiding, directing and giving us power to carry out His great plan and purpose for our lives---bit by bit, piece by piece, minute by minute, hour by hour, a day at a time or if He chooses all in an instant!  He leads, we follow!"  

When you acknowledge God’s greatness in your life, when you see yourself the way He sees you and live and do your best to be who He would have you be, that’s when His power can work the most  in you---when your on the same page with God rather than when your off  going it your own way!  Remember, you’ve been created in the image of Almighty God. You're his valuable child.  You have treasure on the inside. If that treasure is going to come out, have the attitude, “I’ve got what it takes, I’m equipped, empowered, talented and creative, and I will fulfill God's destiny and walk in the greater purpose He has in store for me, receiving His favor, goodness, blessings and victory He has in store for my everyday life."  

I will take the most crowded of days and those when the unexpected happens, without fear. God is with me and I am under His protection and care.  I will let confidence be the motif running through all the crowded days. I will not get worried, because I know that God is my helper. Underneath are the everlasting arms I can find strength and rest in.  Even though the day is full of things crowding in upon me, I will never loose sight of God, His direction and care.  " I am always going before you, making your path straight, beckoning you on—one step at a time.  Keep your eye's fixed on me!  I will never lead you astray! Nothing, neither height nor depth, nor anything in all creation, can separate you from My love, divine direction and loving Presence. "  

Today---Show me Your ways God--- that I may walk with You and honor You all the days of my life!

The Present---The Gift of a New Day---a Fresh Start---a New Beginning!

" So be merciful, sympathetic, tender, responsive, and compassionate,  even as God your Father is all these things and has bestowed His mercy and favor on you with the gift of each new day---the present.  God's mercies and compassion are new each day and fail not---they are great, abundant,  stable, consistent and always faithful.   Therefore bestow the same mercies and kindness on others, treating them the way you'd like to be treated.  Be kind, as He is kind and you won't go wrong.  God will see your efforts and bless you for it. "

Each day is a new opportunity to close the door on the past and experience a brand-new start. Even the fact that God divided the days into twenty-four-hour segments is evidence that we need to "start over" on a regular basis. There is always a new day, a new month and a new year; but, in order for us to make use of these new beginnings, we must make a decision to do so and seize each new day---each new moment.

God's mercy is new every morning. Every day He gives you a fresh start. The question is…what will you do with the gift of today?   Dwell on things in the past that you can't do anything about---that are in God's hands now?  Or, will you leave the past behind and make the most of this new day---the gift---the present and experience all the great things He has in store while you work to be the best He'd have you be?  

Today,  I'll be grateful for the present of  a new day---a fresh start and in working to be who God would have me be, receive His protection, care, blessings victory, favor and walk in the greater purpose He has in store for me and my life!  

“For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

In its Simplest Form-Love. In its Purest Form-God.

When we turn our will and lives over to the care of God,we will be shown the way to proceed regardless of the situation, circumstances or the unexpected challenges life may bring our way.  As we stay close to Him during life's distractions and uncertainties, He will give guidance, strength and knowledge to proceed.   Keep Faith and Hope active and present tense in your life, for He can take what the enemy meant to set you back or destroy you and turn it into an awesome come back, ultimately leading you into continued victory, favor, blessings and greater purpose for your life.  God is for you and He will be faithful to see you through regardless!

"In its' simplest form, it's called love; in its' purest form, God . . . He is bigger than ______ . . . He directs and guides our feet in a straight line into the way of Peace and Purpose . . . Everything that we have, renewed minds, right thinking, right living, a clean slate and a fresh start - comes from God.  That's part of God's Amazing Grace!"  Decide today to reject unbelief, fight discouragement, and refuse the distractions that might lead you off course from God's greater purpose and victory for your life.  Firm up your Faith  and Hope, keeping your eyes fixed on Him and on the goal.  Take a moment to be still knowing He is God and let Him continue to lead you into a life filled with victory, blessings, favor, provisions, and the greater things He has in store.

"Be still and know that I am God.  When you seek me, you WILL find me. . ."  A sense of God’s wholeness, everything working  together for good will come and settle you with His Peace that passes all understanding.  It's  incredible what happens when God displaces worry at the center of your life and confirms His plans for your life are good and His goodness, love, Grace, unfailing mercy and provision are unveiled and will endure endlessly in your life."

You Are Valuable to God!

You are valuable to God!  There are great possibilities ahead for your life. God has invested Himself in you and given you talents and abilities that equip you to do certain things. You are part of His amazing plan and purpose.

We all make mistakes.  God may not always be pleased with our behavior; but, that's where His grace comes in.  He knows that we are human and will sometimes make mistakes.  His love for us never changes.  He has a greater plan and purpose for each of us.  

Today, know that God is not mad at you---regardless.  He loves you and He is pleased if we love Him and are doing our best to make progress and be who He'd have us be!  Take heart in knowing  He has great things in store for your life---according to His greater plan and purpose for your life.

Strength to Press Forward and Overcome

"…I can do ALL things through He who gives me strength…"

Whatever you're facing in life, or whatever is coming in your future, God has already given you the faith for it. It may not look like it, and you may not feel like you have what it takes to overcome; but, faith in God isn’t based on our circumstances or how we feel.  God see's you as an overcomer and has give you the power to do so.  His favor and blessings, His healing power are at work in your life.  Not matter what your facing, He has already given you the power and strength to overcome and move forward to the blessings and victory He has in store.

Seeing yourself the way God sees you leads to a life of overwhelming victory; but, it takes faith. You can't just hear that God loves you and sees you as His child—you have to believe it. It takes faith to move forward and overcome the challenges of life. Faith does you no good if you don't release it. You have to release your faith in order for it to work.  We release faith through our words, actions and, of course, through prayer. It's up to us to act.

God loves us and has given the power to overcome. As His child, act on faith every day, trusting He will give you the power to overcome any obstacle that may come your way.   "Come to Me with all your needs, knowing that My glorious riches are a more-than-adequate supply. Stay in continual communication with Me, so that you can live above your circumstances even while you are in the midst of them. Present your requests to Me with thanksgiving, and My Peace, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your heart and mind."

The Favor of God

"…His Favor is for a lifetime…His Grace, Mercy and Favor are new every day…"

When you put God first, when you obey His commands and follow His lead, you open the door for His favor and never go wrong.  Even if it looks like things are never going to change for the better, remember you have an advantage---God is in control!  He’s fighting your battles for you.  He's your vindicator.  

"Don’t cast away your confidence in Him."  In the difficult times, remember God is faithful.  In the good times remember to Thank Him.  If you’ll keep doing the right thing, putting Him first in your life, honoring Him and expecting His favor, He has promised that you will live the abundant life of blessings, victory and greater purpose He has in store for you!

Does this mean that doing God's will is always easy!  No; but, with His help, it's possible!  He will be faithful, be your strong arm, see you through and give you the strength to do what's set before you.  He'll line up the right people at the right time and place and He'll see you through whatever the case may be!  Today, keep the Faith and keep doing, living and being who and doing what He'd have you, and experience His favor, victory and blessings all the days of your life!

"A man's mind plans his way; but, God directs his steps and makes them sure…His Face is shining upon you, beaming out Peace that transcends understanding.   As long as you focus on Him, you are safe.   When you call out 'Help me!'  He will lift you up.  The closer you live to Him, the safer you are.  Fix your eyes on God, the One who never changes.  He is always beside you, helping you!"

God Speaks! Will You Listen?

"Carefully listen to the Voice of the God…"

God speaks in many ways.  It can be through His still small voice inside, that God conscious within, that inner prompting that leads us in the right direction and to make the right decisions or the inner alarms that blare guiding us away from the wrong decisions.  It may be in our thoughts.  He may choose to speak through other people, situations and circumstances.  He may speak through something we read at just the right time and place.  It may be through the opening and closing of doors in a situation.  In any regard; however He chooses, God speaks to us to lead and guide us in our daily life.  He can give you words of wisdom that will completely change your situation. The question is are we listening when He speaks?

The moment you verbalize a thought, you give it the right to come to pass. When you speak words of Faith and verbalize then, you get in agreement and alignment with God and open yourself up to receive the greater things He has in store. When you speak defeat, you’re in agreement with the enemy. Positive God-talk brings God on the scene. Negative enemy-talk brings the enemy on the scene.  "Talk with Me; but, also importantly, take time to listen. I will transform your weaknesses into strengths.  Your relationship with Me is saturated in My Grace and Love for you; therefore, nothing you do or don’t do can separate you from My Love and Grace! Stay in constant contact with Me, listen to my voice, follow my lead and don't let anything shut you off from the Sunlight and guidance of My Spirit."

Get in agreement with God today; however He speaks to you.  The negative voice may be loud; but, you can override it. You can take away all of its power by simply choosing the voice of God through Faith. Choose to declare God's amazing favor, blessings and increase over your life today so that you can walk in the victory He has in store for you.  "God is with you!  He will lead and guide you, so put your confidence and Faith in Him! His love is perfect, even when we aren't. He isn't going to love us any more or less because of our mistakes. God loves you right where you are!  Let that fact boost your faith and eliminate your fears!"

Today, God when you speak, however you choose, I will listen! I will live in awareness of your presence in my life.  Where you lead, I will follow---as you lead me into the greater purpose you have for my life.  In doing so, I'll receive your unending love, forgiveness, favor, blessings, victory and the great things you have in store for my life!

He is My Victory! God is Near!

"You were created by a great God to do great things; but, without confidence you will never fulfill your destiny. It is important, however, to remember you are to be confident not in yourself but in He who dwells in you.  When you're not hurrying and worrying all the time, you have time to think. Time to relax. Time to enjoy life. Time to be still and know that He is God!"

"Try to view each day as an adventure, carefully planned out by God your Guide. Instead of staring into the day that is ahead of you, attempting to program it according to your will, be attentive to Me and to all I have prepared for you. Thank Me for this day of life, recognizing that it is a precious, unrepeatable gift. Trust that I am with you each moment, whether you sense My Presence or not. A thankful, trusting attitude helps you to see events in your life from My perspective."

"A life lived close to Me will never be dull or predictable. Expect each day to contain surprises! Resist your tendency to search for the easiest route through the day. Be willing to follow wherever I lead. No matter how steep or treacherous the path before you, the safest place to be is by My side."

"I have strength for all things in Him who empowers me.  I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses inner strength into me."

God Hears the Simplest of Prayers

Many have the misconception that it takes prayers of eloquence to reach God.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  We can speak to and pray to God as if we were talking to a friend or family member, at any time and any situation.  I've actually seen the hand of God work in my life when all I knew to pray was "God help".  That's exactly what He did.  You don't have to complicate prayer.  Just have confidence in simple, believing prayer. Instead of worrying, simply pray and ask God for help and make your request, needs, dreams, etc.,known to Him. 

God is faithful, that's one of His major characteristics. He can be counted on to come through for us when we pray to Him.  We should trust Him totally and completely. When we do, we'll be ready for anything that may come our way, and we'll see His blessings and guidance active in our lives taking us to greater purpose and providing and unfolding things we never dreamed.  

"Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything; but, in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition---definite requests, with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God."  "Ask and you shall receive."

God's Got This! He Got You and All That Concerns You!"

“I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; in Him I lean, rely, and confidently trust…He will cover me, deliver me, protect me and guide me into the greater things He has in store for my life."

When you look to God for strength to face responsibilities for day to day life, and are quiet before Him, His healing touch causes the Divine Quiet of His Spirit to flow into your very being. When in weakness you cry to God, His touch brings healing, the renewal of your courage, and the power to meet every situation and be victorious.  Rely on the touch of God’s hand to support you on your way.  Arise and go forth with confidence.  "Apart from Me, cut off from your vital union with Me, you can do nothing; but, with Me all things are possible. You can do all things through My strength."  When we humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God, in due time, His time, He will exalt us, provide for our needs and guide us in the right direction.  "Due time" is God's time, when God knows we're ready, not when we think we're ready. "God gives grace, favor and blessing to the humble."  "Trust Me by relinquishing control into My hands. Let go, and recognize that I am God.  Guard well this gift that I have planted in your heart.  Let be and be still, and know, recognize, understand and see, that I am God!"

"When you bring Me prayer requests and lay out your concerns before Me, speak to Me candidly---pour out your heart. Thank Me for the answers that I have set into motion even before you may see results. When your requests come to mind again, continue to thank Me for the answers that are on the way.   When you thank Me for how I am answering your prayers and working behind the scenes on your behalf, your mind-set becomes much more positive and you can live with confidence knowing that I am on your side working all things for good in your life. Thankful prayers keep your focus on My presence and My promises and prompt Me to prove my favor and act on your behalf for good."  When you declare who God is in your life, you are displaying your faith and trust in Him. Faith pleases God and opens the door for Him to move in your life. Today, declare God’s greatness in your life. Declare that He is faithful.  "Say of the Lord, declare His goodness and favor in your life and watch what He will do on your behalf!"

Today, I will pray for strength, that God's will be done and that He will provide divine direction into the greater purpose and blessings He has in store for me.  I will rely on God's unlimited store of strength for my needs. I will seek God's will for me, and work to be who I feel He'd have me be.  I will strive for consciousness of God's presence in my life, for "He is the light of the world".  I will rely on Him for strength and guidance for this day and I will live in an ongoing consciousness and awareness of His presence, blessings, His working on my behalf and His favor in my life.  In doing so I will live in ongoing gratitude for His goodness in my life as He continues to lead me into victory, blessings and the greater purpose He has for my life!

Lay Claim on the Blessings God has in Store for You!

" If you remain in Me and My words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you. "

" Your words have power, especially when you put prayer behind them.  Did you know that with your words you can either bless or curse your future? Your words have power. If you want to know what your life is going to be like five years from now, just listen to what you’re saying about yourself and your life today. Many people go around saying, 'I’ll never get well.' 'I’ll never get out of debt.' 'It’s flu season. I’ll probably get it.'  'This marriage is never going to last.', etc.   Then they wonder why they don’t see things turn around for their good.  It’s because they’re constantly calling defeat into their future. They’re calling in mediocrity. Don’t let that be you! "

" In addition good thoughts are like bright colors in a painting. Negative thoughts are dark and dreary and drab. Each day we paint pictures of our own lives with our thoughts. If we step back and look at the canvas, we will see whether the picture is alive with bright colors or dreary and lifeless like a dark cloud. When we allow God to direct our thinking and renew our minds daily our thoughts have the power to make us feel joyful , depending on what we ourselves expect or look for. The choice is ours.  Right thought, right words, right actions all of which with God's help directing us, bring joy and greater purpose into our lives and often turn situations and outcomes around for our best."

" When you get up in the morning, no matter how you feel, no matter what things look like, use your words with Faith to call in God's blessings for your life. Let your words, backed by Faith and prayer CHANGE your situation. Make a declaration of Faith saying, 'This is going to be a great day. I have God’s favor. He’s directing my steps.'  'This is the day The Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.'  I can do all things through He who gives me strength.'   When you do that, you are choosing life for your future. You are calling in God's favor, increase, blessings and opportunities. Your words are coming into alignment with God’s, and when you align yourself with Him, following His guidance and directions---His lead daily, He’ll lead you into victory and blessings all the days of your life! "

His Will---His Way---His Time

"I am with you and for you. When you decide on a course of action that is in line with My will, nothing in heaven or on earth can stop you.  With My help, you can overcome any obstacle.  Remember that I am your very-present Helper."

"Much, much stress results from your wanting to make things happen before their times have come. If you want to stay close to Me and do things My way, ask Me to show you the path forward moment by moment.  Let Me set the pace. Slow down, and enjoy the journey in My Presence!"

I will have faith, no matter what. I will be patient, even in the midst of troubles. I will not fear the strain of life, because God knows just what I can bear. I will look to the future with confidence. I know that God will not ask me to bear anything that could overcome or destroy me. I know that God has good plans for my life and as I work to be who He'd have me and follow His lead, I won't go wrong.  He will lead me into the great things He has in store for my life, and His blessings shall follow---one day at a time.

Faith & Expectancy

"Take the limits off of your life today by stepping out in faith?  Keep an attitude of faith and expectancy. Know that God loves you with an everlasting love, and He wants to overtake you with His blessings today!"

Tuesday, January 7, 2014

Follow God's lead and you'll never go wrong.

"For I know the plans I have for you.  Plans for good and not evil.  To prosper you and not harm you.  To give you a future and a hope."  -God

When God opens a door or places a dream inside of us, it often requires that we take a step or steps of faith, especially when we're not sure how everything is going to work out.  Those open doors and dreams are often part of His greater plan and purpose for our lives.  

"Faith often requires us to take the next step, even though we can't see the entire staircase."  When God opens a new door or chapter in your life, you may not have all the answers, you may not be able to plan out all the details, you may just have to take things a day at a time or a step at a time in Faith.  When we do God see's our obedience to follow His lead and trust Him and will bless, guide and direct us.  He will never leave us stranded.  If we make a wrong move, get off course, or get lost along the journey because we may be trying too hard in our own power to make things happen, He'll find us and guide us back on the right track.

There have been many times that I've taken steps of faith and walked through newly opened doors.  As long as I stayed close to God and sensitive to His lead, everything worked out great; but, when I mixed some self-will in and tried to do things my own way or make things happen on my own timing instead of the way God intended, things got messy quickly.  

Is there a new door that's opened up for you; but, you are afraid to walk through because you don't have all the answers and you can't fully see how everything is going to work out?  That's where Faith comes in!  Trust God completely having Faith  that He knows what's best for your life.  Don't try to negotiate your own terms with Him; but, boldly walk through the door and take the next steps as He leads.  Let Him lead the way.  He doesn't want us to barely get by or barely survive.  He wants to bless us so that we can be a blessing to others.  Today, if God is trying to do a new thing in your life, has opened a door, or planted a dream within, go with it through Faith.  Expect Him to keep his promises, help you with any challenges that arise and do the impossible if or when necessary. Follow God's lead each step of the way and He'll faithfully provide and take care of your needs, He'll honor your obedience, and He'll bless your efforts to follow His greater purpose and plan for your life--- taking you to places you never imagined!

"…I am with you all the days, perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion…so let it be."

The lifter of our heads. The provider for our needs. The strength we need.

God has good plans for you and He wants you to enjoy your life. He doesn't want you to live with a spirit of heaviness, despair, depression or discouragement. The good news is, your attitude and outlook can change when you look to God and let Him lift you up.

God has a good plan with a future and a hope for each of us. Because He is with us, we can think and speak in agreement with His will. We can practice being positive in every situation that arises, regardless of what it is. When challenging or difficult situations arise, we can expect God to bring good out of them as He has promised.  Often the more challenging the situation, the bigger the opportunity for growth, and the likelihood that we will rely on God more!

God  has promised to be the lifter of  your head, to give you strength to accomplish the things set before you and you CAN do ALL things through His strength.  Don't hesitate to ask Him for help, strength, provision, direction or whatever it is that you need.  He wants you to!  "Ask and you shall receive!"  

Today, be confident in knowing "I (God) am able to do far beyond all that you ask or imagine. Come to Me with positive expectations, knowing that there is no limit to what I can accomplish.  Ask and you shall receive! I AM WITH YOU! "

With Faith & God's Grace You Can't Go Wrong!

"Relying on God has to begin all over again every day, sometimes over and over, moment by moment.  There is a moment of surrender and there is the ongoing practice of surrender."

"What are you doing with your faith?" Are you putting your faith in yourself, in others, or in your circumstances? That's not living in God's Grace, that's just living by your own strength and works. It won't get the job done, for very long anyway!  When you release your Faith and trust God to do what you can't do, you're putting your Faith in Him. Then Grace—God's power— will come through the channel of Faith and enable you to do things that will amaze you and others.

God's Grace---God's power coming to us freely, meaning, it doesn't cost us anything other than just putting our Faith in Him.  God's Grace---enabling us to do with ease what we could never do on our own, without any amount of struggle or effort.  God's Grace---covering our shortcomings, loving and forgiving us in spite of our failures and enabling us by His power to do all and be all He would have us be!

"God blesses those who realize their need for Him!"  "True dependence is not simply asking Me to bless what you have decided to do. It is coming to Me with an open mind and heart, inviting Me to plant My desires within you. I may infuse within you a dream that seems far beyond your reach. You know that you need my help to achieve such a goal. Thus begins your journey of profound reliance on Me. It is a Faith-walk, taken one step at a time, leaning on Me as much as frequently as you need.  Each failure is followed by a growth spurt, nourished by increased reliance on Me. Enjoy the blessedness of a victorious life, through deepening your dependence on Me, through Faith, Grace and My favor bestowed on you and your life."

"For we walk by faith, not by sight."  This day and every day, I will rely on God.

Not Yesterday or Tomorrow---TODAY!

"You are not built to carry baggage of the past and worries of the future.  God has given us Grace to carry the now."

"You are so made to carry the weight of twenty-four hours. If you weigh yourself down with the years behind and the days ahead, your setting yourself up to break. God has promised to help with the burdens of the day. God's grace has made a way to put the past behind you.  If you choose to gather up again burdens of the past and carry them, then indeed you are setting yourself up to for a breaking point.  He wants you at your best today, living the way He'd have you.  So forget that which lies behind you and breathe in the freshness of a new day, His blessings, His presence and press on into the good things He has in store.  Each new day live it to the fullest and trust the good things He has in store for your future will arrive in His perfect timing, assured that if life brings challenges your way in the future, He will equip, strengthen and faithfully see you through each twist and turn."

I know that with God fundamentally all is well. Good things will happen for He has good plans for my life. God cares for me and will provide. I know that He will unfold the way, step by step. I will leave the past in the past and tomorrow to God because He is the great burden-bearer and the great architect. He only expects me to carry my one-day's share, being the best I can be, and who He'd have me be with His help today!

Taste the goodness of God and get a glimpse of the good life He has in store and you will have no desire to return to a mundane routine of life. Leave the boat, friend!  Get off the sidelines!  A new world and outlook on life awaits you!  "Trust Me in EVERY situation!  When you affirm your trust in Me no matter what, you receive blessings, gratefully realizing they flow directly from My hand of Grace. Your continual assertion of trusting Me will strengthen our relationship and keep you close to My side, safely covered under My Almighty Shadow.  You will learn that I've seen you through before and I'll be faithful to do it again!  You will also learn that I have good plans for your life and begin to anticipate My goodness and favor every day.  Be aware of my nearness daily in even the smallest details of day to day life, for I am there and when you look for Me, you will find I'm already there and always will be---yesterday, TODAY and forever!"

He's got the lead. I just need to follow!

"I can face this day with confidence, courage, and optimism for I know beyond a shadow of doubt that God is present and working in every intricate detail of my life.  Where He leads, I will follow."

I will be renewed. I will be remade. In this, I need God's help. His spirit shall flow through me and, in flowing through me, it shall sweep away all the bitter past. I will take heart. The way will open for me. Each day will unfold something good, as long as I am trying to live the way I believe God wants me to live. 

Keep in touch with God today.  Stay tuned to His voice. You may have a plan for the day; but, God may lead you in a totally different direction if you are sensitive to His spirit and your God conscious within. Be brave enough to flow with what you feel in your heart God wants you to do.  Today is going to be a good day. Listen for the voice of God to lead you.  Walk through the doors He opens.  Be determined to walk with Him and stay in the flow of God’s leading today.

"I equip you to face whatever the day brings. This sacrifice of time which you spend with Me pleases Me and strengthens you. Do not skimp on our time together. Resist the clamor of tasks waiting to be done. You have chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from you."  Today, look to God for His strength.  Seek His Face, guidance and direction always, following His lead, and reap the benefits, blessings and His favor in doing so!

Letting Go and Letting God

Thank God, the future is never limited by what we can see right now.  Before we start speaking the language of letting go, we need to understand what a powerful behavior letting go and letting God really is.  God, help me do my part. Then help me let go, and let you do yours.
