30 April – That I may be wise

wisdom 2

In building our lives we need a solid foundation and I can’t think of a better foundation to build on than wisdom. Personally I have discovered a wealth of wisdom to be found in God’s Word. It teaches me how to be loving, strong, a trustworthy wife, parent, friend, and leader. I have discovered knowledge, comfort and understanding in God’s word to navigate me through some of the toughest times in my life. The wisdom in God’s word has brought me through death, loss, failure, financial worries, and relationship and parenting challenges.

There have been many times when I was unsure of what to do when it came to decisions with one or all of our six children, or with other relationships, work, and our future. However when I have chosen to stop and quiet my heart and mind so that I can seek God for His wisdom He always leads me to the right course of action.

We all hopefully desire to make wise choices, whether it’s in our relationships, difficult decisions, or just everyday life. Here are 3 ways wisdom can be established in our lives:

1. Live by the wisdom you have already been given:

God’s word is full of wisdom and it’s been given to us. Read it and listen and do what it says.

Reflect and learn from your experiences, and mistakes. Perhaps start a notebook titled “The things I’ve learnt” to help you remember.

Listen to wisdom, and do your best to understand. Ask for good judgment. Cry out for understanding. Look for wisdom like silver. Search for it like hidden treasure. If you do this, you will understand what it means to respect the Lord, and you will come to know God. The Lord is the source of wisdom; knowledge and understanding come from his mouth.

“Delight is in the law (word) of the Lord, And in His law meditate day and night, then whatever you do shall prosper.” (Proverbs 2:1-4; Psalm 1:2-3)

2. Get input from those who demonstrate wisdom:

Become wise by walking with the wise; Hang out with fools and watch your life fall to pieces.” (Proverbs 13:20 The Message)

Folly is joy to him who lacks sense, But a man of understanding walks straight. Without consultation, plans are frustrated, but with counsellors they succeed” (Proverbs 15:22)

3. Be open to correction:

How do you respond to correction? Do you get offended? Do you feel rejected? Do you get defensive or indulge in a bout of self-pity? When we value and seek wisdom we need people who’ll be honest with us. Why? Because we often get blinded by our own motives and ego’s. When God corrects or sends someone else to correct us it’s because He wants what’s best for us. Be teachable, willing, quick to learn, and open to counsel.

So don’t feel sorry for yourselves. Or have you forgotten how good parents treat children, and that God regards you as his children?  My dear child, don’t shrug off God’s discipline, but don’t be crushed by it either. It’s the child he loves that he disciplines; the child he embraces, he also corrects. God is educating you; that’s why you must never drop out. He’s treating you as dear children”. (Hebrews 12:4-11 The Message)

I encourage you to choose the way of wisdom today for it  is worth far more than precious jewels, or silver and gold. When you value wisdom you will also find long life, peace, and riches and honour. (Proverbs 3:13-18)

Prayer: Lord help me to build my life on wisdom and that by understanding and knowledge it will be filled with peace, joy, love and an abundance of precious and pleasant riches. In Jesus Name Amen

29 April – Like a box of chocolates

life is like a box of chocolates

Life is like a box of chocolates, loaded with surprises; some moments are delightful and some downright disagreeable. The yummy ones, of course are easy to swallow, but the ones we don’t like so much are sometimes hard to stomach.

Those yucky moments in life however can help determine our depth of character. It’s in the moments we would rather spit out and forget about that we either choose to run to God or run away from Him.

It’s in the bad times that our faith has an opportunity to grow and we mature. We learn to rely on God through everything. He is there. He never promised He would lead us “around” every trial, but that He would be “with us” in every trial, leading us through. That He would never leave or forsake us. (Hebrews 13:5)

Life can serve you up some down right awful moments. When my 24-year-old brother was killed in a plane crash I was faced with a choice about how I was going to let that shape my perspective and view of life, because what we do in the midst of trials and how it will changes us, is up to us. We can sit there sucking on the bitter moments, reliving them over and over, or we can face it, pain and all and allow God in and choose to work through it with Him.

It’s in that space you learn that “all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28).

I made a decision not to live in silence or fear, but to make the most of every opportunity. My brother loved the saying “Just do it”. Just do something!

We are alive. So shouldn’t we make the most of it? Shouldn’t we find out what God’s plan and purpose is for our life and then go out and “just do it”?

Is that always easy? No. But if you walk with Jesus, you start to discover that “He will make everything beautiful in His time”. (Ecclesiastes 3:11.) Even if at times you just have to go to a place of trust, knowing God loves you and it is going to be ok. That He has a hope, plan and a future for each one of us.

 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”.

“Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in yourbook before one of them came to be”. (Psalm 139:16)

Where are you today in your walk? Are you enjoying the sweet taste of good times, or a series of unexpected, unpleasant events? Today whatever you are going through I encourage you to rely on Jesus and His love for you. He will get you through the distasteful portions of life and make the sweet ones even sweeter.

Life is like a fantastic box of chocolates. (I happen to like the Vanilla caramel ones). It’s loaded with surprises, opportunities and challenges. But remember it is like a box of chocolates, so it’s worth unwrapping!

Prayer: Lord thank you Lord that you have given me life. Help me in every season of life; that I’d be grateful for the sweet times and learn to trust you in the distasteful moments. Thank you that you are faithful, and work all things together for my good. In Jesus Name. Amen.

 

28 April – Don’t mess with me!

don't mess with me

Sometimes we just need to give ourselves a shake and talking to so that we will stand up and take authority. Unfortunately far too often we let things come at us and the consequence is that we feel like a road train has just driven over the top of us.

It’s those times when I say it’s time to get feisty. Yes feisty! You are not a wimp, a bump on a log or someone to be trivalled with. Whats more if you know Jesus then you are a co-heir with Him and a child of the most High God. You are not someone to be messed with.

“And if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ”. (Romans 8:17)

Sometimes we need to get up on the inside and remind ourselves who we are. We are forgiven, worthy, washed clean, and have the same power that raised Jesus from the dead residing on the inside of us. We are devil stomping, kick butt individuals that every evil force should be afraid of. You know when we get out of bed in the morning the devil and his lot should be afraid because we are up!

We have been given all authority in Heaven and on Earth. Jesus gave that to us, and He gave it to us to use. So what are we doing getting ourselves run over by emotional turmoil, sickness, lack, family strife, and every other thing the enemy tries to think up to attack us with?

There are times, as my Mum says where we need to shout at our enemy and tell him to clear off. She testifies that feistiness is what saved her life against aggressive cancer and released God’s healing power throughout her body. If she had been passive she probably wouldn’t be here today.

When we are being harassed by evil then it not the time to be passive. It’s the time to stand in the reality of who we are in Christ. That doesn’t mean we get into striving. It means we walk in who we are, knowing God has us. If we are not sure how to do that then right now is a great time to start discovering through God’s word who we are in Christ. To find a place to get along side other people who know Jesus and learn how to walk in authority and discover who God says we are and our future with Him.

Make a decision today to not be passive and a push over any longer. Don’t be fooled anymore by the antics of the evil one. Instead ask God to show you what and who is the real enemy and the root cause of any stress and trouble in your life. Then stand up and use your authority in Jesus and watch the devil flee.

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6:12)

“The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds” (2 Corinthians 10:4)

Submit yourselves to God. Resist the devil and he shall flee from you”. (James 4:7)

Prayer: Jesus would you please help me to understand who you say I am and the authority I have been given when I know you. I stand against every evil attack and thing that’s trying to steal from my life and choose to walk in your peace and blessings today. In Jesus name Amen.

27 April – Doing what needs to be done

discipline 2

Life is full of the need for discipline, and the focus it creates in our lives. Often we “beat ourselves” up over our failure to remain focused and follow through on our New Year resolutions. For without discipline we can easily begin to flounder in our resolve, and consequently our ability to reach goals, lead a healthy lifestyle, grow spiritually and ultimately be happy. But being disciplined is a habit we can practice for a better life, and is what many successful people attribute their success and happiness to.

There are great benefits to leading a disciplined life. Its one of the easiest ways to gain respect in the workplace from our employer and colleagues, and sets a positive example and witness to others, as it creates focus, reliability, patience, and consistency in our characters.

Discipline also helps us be healthy, keeps us fit and active, assists our educational pursuits, and encourages us to be self controlled, resulting in positive relations with others. When we practice being disciplined we get things done faster and in the right time period. We are usually less stressed because we are more organised and know what we are doing, and are able to plan in advance.

God speaks in His word a lot about discipline, and how important it is for us to be focused, consistent, and disciplined in our walk with Him. He knows that it need not be a negative, controlling or limiting aspect of our lives, but a part of our character that will help us become all that He created us to be. A disciplined life helps prevent us from stumbling, and enables us to be consistent in our speech, behaviour and faith. It enables us to remain steadfast in adversity, and patient as we believe and pray.

God encourages us to be, “hospitable, a lover of good, self-controlled, upright, holy, and disciplined,” and cautions that “a man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls.” (Titus 1:8; Proverbs 25:28)

I can think of many times when I have let myself and others down from not being as disciplined as I could have been. But God is so gracious and encourages us in our weaknesses to forgive ourselves, ask for His strength and choose to move forward. When we draw close to God we discover more of who we are in Him. As we look at Him and His word, we will see ourselves as He sees us, as new creations; who are disciplined, gentle, self-controlled and people who run our race well.

“Anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” (2 Corinthians 5:17 NLT)

Today, start with small areas of your life that you desire to be more disciplined in; make simple changes first, and write them down so that they are clear to you; ask God for His strength and help, and go for it. It’s in the daily decisions, the choices and the habits we create and establish in our lives that discipline grows. It’s not burdensome, but about living a freer life, no longer governed by our emotions, weaknesses or bad habits.

“Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win. Everyone who competes in the games exercises self-control in all things. They then do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. Therefore I run in such a way, as not without aim; I box in such a way, as not beating the air, but I discipline my body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified.” (1 Corinthians 9:24-27)

Prayer: Lord thank you that you have created me in your image and likeness. I have resurrection power residing on the inside of me, and the ability and strength to do all things. Help me to understand more fully who I am in you, and to lead a more disciplined, focused and healthier, joy-filled life. In Jesus name Amen.

26 April – Supernatural everyday

supernatual everyday

This is a repost from a few years ago but it’s a goodie and a great reminder to get out there and live the life Jesus has for us. Enjoy!

For those who have invited Jesus into their lives there is a peace that resides deep down on the inside, that unless we surrender up to the cares and worries of the world’s system, no one can take away. Jesus offers to rescue us from the system of control and fear that the world is governed by.

This peace comes because we are called out of the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light – into the realms of Heaven. Heaven operates on faith, love and blessing.

Because God, “has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of His beloved Son Jesus”. (Colossians 1:14)

The kingdom of heaven operates above and beyond the realms of this world, and amazingly God wants us to learn to operate in these realms everyday. There are no limits in heaven’s system, and nothing is impossible there. Amazing, crazy, wonderful things happen in that realm; that when released impacts the world for good.

However we can still be so conditioned by the world’s system. The system that says that’s not possible, believe only what you can see, truth is relative and there are no absolutes, and miracles don’t really happen.

That’s why it’s so important that when we testify that we believe Jesus is the Son of God, that we learn to walk in the realms of the supernatural, in the realms of heaven. Without that how will people know, how will they hear?

God intends that our lives would naturally be supernatural! Jesus said, “Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it. (John 14:12)

Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life. Now think where is Jesus in your day? Because the way we live our lives each day, every day, is a reflection of how much we love and trust Jesus. It is a reflection of the place Jesus actually has in our lives. He is not just something else to fill the few gaps in our life that are not occupied.

Today don’t let Jesus be an after thought to your day. He longs to be at the centre of our focus, our purpose, our reason; the very centre of our lives. Because He wants for us to know Him, and because the world needs for us to operate more and more in the realms of heaven and the supernatural everyday; to bring heaven to earth everyday. The question is whether, or to what degree we allow the power of Jesus to work within us, and through us.

Today choose to step out and tell Jesus you are available. Then allow the Holy Spirit, to guide and lead you. Make this month the start of doing at least one thing everyday in the supernatural realm. Will you allow Him to be involved in your everyday life? Because when He is, you will know what real living is.

Supernatural is simply doing things lead by the Holy Spirit, and operating in heaven’s system and not the world’s. God longs for us to abide in that place. To be more comfortable in the realms of the spirit than the earth.

We have to start somewhere, and get accustomed to and how heaven operates. 

Here’s some ideas to get you started moving in the supernatural everyday.

  • Do an Act of Kindness, and bless someone.
  • Start engaging in heaven’s realms.
  • Seek God and spend time with Him
  • Read the bible.
  • Ask God to give you a prophecy (a message from God) for someone, and then give it.
  • Ask him to show you someone to pray for – then go and pray for them.
  • Step out, be bold and make yourself available!
  • Go for it, and have FUN!

“For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance as our way of life.”(Ephesians 2:10)

“But our citizenship is in heaven.”(Philippians 3:20)

And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus”. (Ephesians 2:6)

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. (Romans 12:2).

Prayer: Jesus would you use me today. Lead me by your spirit and show me what to do, where to speak and how to bless those around me. I want to know heaven, and the things of heaven. Please show me Lord. In Jesus Name Amen.

25 April – I’m listening

i'm listening

Within each of us is a deposit of greatness! But it’s up to us what we choose to do with that deposit.

The moment you ask Jesus into your life you are called to not have an ordinary life. He wants us to be people that do something to impact the world around us. Too often however we think we can’t make any difference and it doesn’t matter what we do, or don’t do.

But if you look through history you can easily see that one person can make a difference. I am always challenged when I read about the men and women who are known for their impact on the world. Men and women who chose not to limit their influence by what they could do, but who chose to put their lives in the hands of Jesus and simply said “Here I am, use me”.

Men like Dwight Moody, Mother Teresa, Oral Roberts, Hudson Taylor, Gladys Alyward, and Maria Woodworth-Etter. These men and women, some who were uneducated, and from poor families did astounding and amazing exploits, and their deeds have lasted long after they have gone from this world.

I love the story of one such man named Dwight Moody. He was born in 1837 to poor parents in a humble farmhouse in Massachusetts. At 17 years old he left home to move to Chicago as a shoe salesmen.

There he made a decision. He started to seek God first for his life and future, and as he did Dwight started to feel compelled to speak to people about Jesus. Soon he had crowds listening and a large church formed as he continued to share. At different times 50,000 people would crowd around him as he stood up in his buggy and spoke about Jesus in the open air. Presidents and their cabinet members sat on platforms with him as he preached. Through his endeavors the YMCA was also formed.

Dwight Moody was known as a man surrendered to God. He was a man of prayer, actually a greater prayer than a preacher. He knew in the depths of his soul that nothing is to hard for God, and so he would pray. He knew God’s word and he read and studied it. He was humble  and free from the love of money, and he was empowered by the Holy Spirit.

But what always inspires me most is that this one man knew the value of one person to God. Everyday he would speak to at least one person about Jesus, even if that meant getting back out of bed late at night and going out on the street to find someone to share with.

He was one ordinary man, but God used this humble shoe salesman to change millions of lives and his spiritual legacy continues to impact the world today.

Life is full of good things; jobs, families, careers, cars, houses, holidays etc. But if that is all that our lives consist of then we have missed it. In the end our possessions, clothes, shoes, personal items, holidays, photo’s, and souvenirs are all packed up in boxes. Cars sit in driveways until they are sold or given away. Houses are left empty or sold. Someone else replaces us in our job. All the things we seek and strive after in this world are temporal. They may all be good things, but how many of them are lasting?

The bible says, “All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever” (1 Peter 1:24).

What if we had the perspective of what is the most important thing? What if we thought about using our time each day not just on the immediate, but on what is also of eternal significance. What an awesome difference we could each make in the lives of people around us if we just stopped and asked God, “What would you have me say and do today?”

This week spend some time at the start of each day asking Jesus what He has for you to do? Who to speak to, to call, to have a coffee with, who to pray for or with? One person can make a difference. Why not make that one person you!

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10).

Prayer: Lord help me to see the difference I can make, and to see the eternal significance I can make today. Speak to me Lord, I’m listening. In Jesus name Amen.

24 April – He will finish what He’s started in you

finish what he's started

In a world where many things are expendable, disposable and easily thrown away it is no surprise that many projects, resolutions, and promises are left incomplete. Instead of finishing or seeing the value in something enough to restore, revamp or reuse it in some way we often simply throw it away and get another one.

Maybe that is why we can so often short-change ourselves when it comes to our own personal growth physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally. We’ve picked up the mindset of if it’s too much effort why bother, and we either trade what we have for another one or don’t make the effort to change where necessary and so remain the way the same even when it’s obvious we need to deal with or grow in certain areas of our life. This relates not just to our physical and mental health, but also our relationships and the effort we may or may take to make them both thrive and survive the test of time. Our spiritual walk can also suffer as we fail to explore and discover all that Jesus has to reveal to us, meaning we can settle for far less than what He has for us.

Jesus however does not overlook nor see us unimportant. He loves and accepts us just the way we are, but He also loves us far too much to leave us with some of the things we carry around with us. Even when we may feel like our life, relationships, health and future is fit only for the scrapheap He is in the business of restoration, healing, and making all things like new in our lives. He makes statements like, “I will perfect that which concerns you, and will complete that which I have started in you; that you are My masterpiece, created with good things to do, and that I have a book in heaven with all My plans and purposes for your life story written in it. If we miss it, stray down the wrong path, or suffer disappointments and hurts Jesus won’t give up on us. He will just keep loving us and calling, working and perfecting us to be all that He has created us to be. (Philippians 1:6; Ephesians 2:10; Psalm 139)

No matter where you are at and what your past or present situation is Jesus wants you to know He hasn’t given up on you, nor does He see you as unimportant or not worth the effort. He gave His life for you, and then conquered sin, death and every evil so that you might know Him, receive His forgiveness, and live a life full of joy. He says you are worth any effort He may have to make to help you breakthrough, and promises that He will finish what He has started in you.

Today if you are running from Jesus, I encourage you to stop and turn to Him. He’s been calling you for a very long time to come to Him and lay down your load. If you feel a failure or wonder if you or life in general is even worth it any more or can amount to anything know that it is. Jesus has so much more and He says your life is valuable and worth everything to Him. He sees you and promises that if only you’ll follow Him He will lead you to a life that exceeds anything you could ask, thing or possibly imagine. (Ephesians 3:20)

Being confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will complete it.” (Philippians 1:6)

“God..I’m an open book to you; even from a distance you know what I am thinking. You know when I leave and when I get back; You know everything I’m going to say before I start the first sentence. I look behind me and you’re there, then up ahead and you’re there, too.” (Psalm 139:1-6 The Message Translation)

Have a listen to this song by Amy Miller to encourage you today:  https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=you+are+faithful+bethel+music+moment

Prayer: Jesus help me to really understand how much I matter to you and that you see my life as valuable and worth putting in the effort to finish what you have started in me. Help me to trust you to lead the way, that I might follow you. In Jesus name Amen.

23 April – Faith Acts!

faith acts

Over the last few days I have been remembering back to just before we had our eldest daughter. I had just suffered a miscarriage and was feeling confused, hurt and wondering what God was doing. One day my Mum came to visit and invited me to go shopping, and while out we passed the baby section and she encouraged me to go and look at the baby clothes, which to many would have seemed a strange thing to do as I had just lost a baby. But my Mum knew something about how faith and hope work, which is that we must keep hope alive because it helps activate our faith to believe God. I returned home from that shopping trip with a tiny pair of pink fluffy baby booties, which over the weeks that followed I would regularly take out, hold and visualise on tiny little baby feet. Not long afterwards I fell pregnant and nine months later I was able to place those pink booties on our healthy, beautiful, baby girl Anna.

The principal I learnt through that time was that when we are praying and believing for what we sense God is speaking to us we often have to activate something in the natural realm to bring these promises and Words from God to pass in our lives. We receive revelation of God’s will for our life through the realm of the Spirit; God speaks, we receive that Word and then start to declare it. Then God wants us to act upon what we believe– what I call putting wheels on our faith… The simple act of buying baby booties was a statement of belief that I was going to have a baby; it was a natural act, which was placing me in agreement with what God had said.

We see this countless times in the bible. Jesus called to Peter to come and walk on the water. He spoke and said “Come walk out on the water – a supernatural thing, but Peter had to do the very natural act of stepping out of the boat to cause the supernatural to impact his life. The lame man who was lowered through the roof had to do a natural act in response to Jesus’ words of “pick up your mat and walk”, of obeying and picking up his mat and walking. Without his act of faith to respond there would have been no activation of faith and therefore no miracle. (Matthew 14:22-31;John 5:8-9)

It is also important to note that when it comes to walking in the things of God it really helps to have friends around you like this lame man had. His friends believed that Jesus could heal their friend so much that they were prepared to take the bold move of tearing a hole in someone else’s roof to get their friend to Jesus. When we are believing for God to do something in our lives, be mindful to choose those people who will support and stand with you in faith.

Today if you believe you have heard from God on an issue, have a need or desire in your heart, I encourage you to ask God how does He want you to respond to the Word He has spoken to you. What act of faith does He want you to take to release and hasten the supernatural into your life and situation? Then as He prompts you just do it, and then keep speaking and standing on His promises and watch God’s answer unfold.

Prayer: Lord I thank you that nothing is impossible for you and that all you ask is that we trust in you and your goodness. Please help me to put wheels on my faith and to not just speak your promises but also to act where and when you lead me to. In Jesus name Amen.

22 April – Just say Yes!

just say yes

One of the keys to living a vibrant full life with Jesus is that we follow His lead. He is Immanuel – God with us, and that means we choose everyday whether we go about doing our own thing, or whether we stop, wait, and listen to do things with Him, His way!

I remember a few years ago I met someone who I’d known years before. They had been experiencing some really cool things in their life when I had last seen them. However on meeting up with them again after several years, I was surprised to find that they had lost their zeal and excitement for life. I asked God why that sometimes happens with people, and why and how we sometimes stop growing. I felt the Lord answer with the words, “They stopped saying Yes to me.

God is always going to have something for us to move forward to. With Him leading we go from “faith to faith”, ever increasing in our capacity and abilities. However that only happens if we keep saying Yes, and are both willing and obedient to follow His lead.

Being willing is the first step in following, and we keep that attitude of willingness when we understand that Jesus only wants good things for us. That He loves us far beyond what we could ever possibly fathom, and He primarily just wants us to love and trust Him.

We come to understand this when, just like any other relationship we:

1.Value time with Jesus – it’s about a relationship not a religion. We can’t know His heart and experience His love unless we spend time in His presence. Value Him!

No longer do I call you servants, because the servant does not know what his master is doing. But I have called you friends(John 15:15)

2.Read the Bible- it’s His words: describing His character, His plan, His directives, and how He thinks and does things.

“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12)

 “All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.” (2 Timothy 3:16)

Without valuing Him above all else, and knowing and reading His words we can too easily start to lean on our own understanding. We look around and wonder if other people, pastimes and pursuits will bring more enjoyment than doing things His way and with Him. Sadly it can take some of us going “around the mountain” countless times before we realise, “Why don’t I just say Yes to Jesus, and do life His way and allow Him to lead me.”

Today if you are looking for peace, meaning and fulfilment in your life; If you want a real living vibrant relationship with Jesus and want to keep growing, and going from faith to faith, then simply say YES!

Say Yes to Him, and then get out of the way, and get willing to do whatever He leads you to. If you do you’ll be amazed at what He will bring into your life. Just do it and Say Yes!

 Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6))

Prayer: Jesus, help me to get out of the way, and to say Yes to you. You lead, and I will follow. Whatever and wherever you go, I will go. Whatever you ask, I will do. I’m with you all the way! In Jesus Name. Amen.
