As humans we waste valuable time and energy any time we think we know better than God. There are times when we cannot make sense of the circumstances we are surrounded by so we feel buried and somewhat hopeless. But just like a buried seed even if all we see is darkness we must believe that growth is inevitable. A planted seed has the ability to reach its full potential so when you find yourself in a dark and confusing situation trust that this is the refining process in which you’ll burst forth from and blossom.
Have an Awe-filled August!
God’s got you just like He had you the last time and the time before that & that other time. The benefits of trusting God are immeasurable. So this month I urge you to align yourself, your words thoughts & actions with the promises God has made. Before you had the problem God had a plan. And before you got into your current situation God had a solution. Trust in Him and declare His promises over your life and circumstances.
Have a Joyful June!
In 1 Chronicles 14:11 there’s a place called “Baal-Perazim” which means the “Lord who bursts through”. David named it that because God burst through like a raging flood & his enemies were defeated. I declare that you shall experience your personal “Baal-Perazim” this month. Despite the setbacks, holdups, seasons of perceived stagnation, trust that God is working everything out for your good and will BURST through at the appropriate time and you’ll see the fruition of his promises.
Have a Mighty Baal-perzaim-type May!
Valley seasons can teach you things that mountain top seasons can’t. Whatever season you are going through, be reassured that it is serving a purpose in your life. That purpose may not be evident now but keep believing in the Word God gave you until He brings you through. Don’t despise the season you are in because GOD is still GOD in all seasons of life. Learn to be content & embrace the opportunity for growth. Have an ah-Mazing March!
Stop rehearsing your future troubles. You end up putting yourself through an experience several times when you are only meant to experience them once. Don’t multiply your suffering. Instead relax in God’s presence & peace. I declare that God is strengthening and preparing you for the future. He will transform your fear into confident trust.
Have a fear-less February!
It’s easy to fall into the trap of dwelling on the setbacks, nasty surprises, “unanswered prayers” and missed opportunities of the past year but the devil uses this to keep us in a bottomless pit of despair. Joseph’s brothers sentenced him to a pit but at the end of his numerous detours he was able to say “you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good”(Gen 50:20). Reflect on the year, think about the “but God” moments and count the numerous blessings you’ve experienced; as this gives hope for the future. If you haven’t experienced one yet I pray that you experience a “But God” in your circumstances/life. Have a Delightful December! x
That situation that is beyond your control has to be like that in order for you to know that it is only God that will bring you through. As an artist once sung: “May your struggles keep you near the cross. May your troubles show that you need God. May your battles end the way they should. Let your whole life prove that God is good.”
God is faithful to His word & will surely bring your situation to a glorious expected end. Have an outstanding October x
