We use to sing a song early in the ministry; "Abraham's blessings are mine!" Not sure who wrote the song; but I gather the writer had Galatians 3:9 in mind.
Galatians 3:9 "So then those who are of faith are blessed with believing Abraham."
I woke up this morning, knowing I would enjoy my prayer walk - the Lord whispered to me as I walked; "you have a dream job." I know that sharing the gospel is both and honor and a privilege; the high call of each believer, but I felt the Lord wanted me to seek further concerning His statement.
He that seeks more - finds more!
Here's where the Spirit of God led me.
Phil 2:17-18 "Yes, and if I am being poured out as a drink offering on the sacrifice and service of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with you all. 18 For the same reason you also be glad and rejoice with me."
I challenge each of you today share your faith in Jesus Christ with someone.
Maybe this is your day off. Maybe you didn't plan on being around people today. Then send a text encouraging someone the Lord puts on your heart. Send an email, post on your Facebook page a scripture of encouragement. God will give your heartfelt intention wings to reach who it should.
I pray God fills you with His evangelistic zeal today.
The Lord bless you richly.
Beginning Saturday, March 27 - Saturday April 3 - you select a food or drink from your normal daily choices; (coffee, muffin, soda, sugar) sacrifice that food for 7 days. It will be leaven that you are removing, as you prepare to celebrate the Passover; as we remember God's great deliverance - into the eternal liberty in Christ Jesus.
Exodus 13:6-7 "Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, and on the seventh day, there shall be a feast to the Lord. 7 Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days. And no leavened bread shall be seen among you, nor shall leaven be seen among you in all your quarters."
Bless you, beloved,
I awakened this morning feeling physically tired but spiritually energized. I heard the voice of the Holy Spirit saying;
"Tell My people that they are anointed for this season."
That was it.
That doesn't make this season any less traumatic - but it means you will not only persevere, but you will also prosper! Because the Lord has anointed you for this, and all seasons.
"If we are standing, we must be praying."
I will see you in God's House by zoom on Sunday, 2/14/21!
there will be deliverance!
This passage must hold a special significance in our Christian walk. When I first read it, being still new to the faith, I understood what the writer was saying.
God is a God of completion. I once tried to convince myself that God told me to do something. When those close to me asked what did God say? I responded; I'm waiting to hear from Him?
(they loved me enough to let me know that made no sense at all). Brother Manny, they responded; you just said God told you to do something, and in the same breath you tell me that you're waiting to hear from Him? Huh?
They knew the character of God better than I did. If He has brought us out of something, it's not to leave us midpoint - He brings us out, to bring us in!
Your latter days, shall be greater!!!!
