Do you Really Have to Live With It?

PeopleHealthyHappyHave you ever heard people talk like they expected to live in bad health, like it is just something people must deal with? Do you believe you must wrestle with the same old physical issues your parents died with? We do not have to yield to those things and there is no law that says a person must die sick. Wholeness is part of the salvation we have available in Christ Jesus.  May you exert energy just because you want to delight yourself in the Lord Who is your wholeness and strength. May family and friends speak of your good health from this day forward. (Prov.3:8, Msg) “Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life!” We are praying you discover daily that you are blessed with life and health.

You Decide Rules of Engagement

FrogJumping(Kathy G.) More keys we can take from Jesus’ wilderness example. 3) Don’t be baited to prove your worth.  Don’t even be baited to doubt it.  The fact that Jesus died for you shuts out doubt and question of worth.  Many wars are won at the point that doubt is kicked out.  4) Don’t let the enemy decide the rules of engagement in the wilderness.  That means don’t jump when he says, “Frog.”  In fact, sons don’t talk to snakes, they stomp them.


 


Live with Different Results

HappyFamilyDinnerIn time to come, may you live differently with different results than you have lived in times past. May your home and work be filled with different conversation in times to come because you are no longer discussing threats and defeats but hopes and victories. May your home be fuller of the things you have needed, full of evidences of victories and full of love. May it be full of the language of prosperity. May the months ahead look totally different as you look back on them. May they have the look of answers, resolve and fulfillment. (3Jn.1:2, NASB) “Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.” We are praying you discover daily that you and your family are prospering in God’s will.


 


Teachers of What is Right and Noble

StudentsTeacherMay the Lord Most High keep His powerful hand upon our school teachers in this coming year. May He minister to them their importance in our culture and bless them for giving of themselves to our children. May He protect them and make them righteously effective beyond all logical measures for the children’s future and the future of our nation.

“…They are to give good counsel and be teachers of what is right and noble,” (Titus 2:3, Amp)


 


Led out of the Wilderness

WildernessLeaving(Kathy G.) I believe the reason Jesus was led into the wilderness was because He was the prototype for wilderness training.  He went there as a son and left there as a son, and there’s no indication it took a long time in between!  Some keys we can take from His wilderness example will equip us: 1) It is difficult to be led by one thing while dominated by another.  So when you are in wilderness circumstances, don’t allow an orphan spirit or rebellious spirit to dominate your thinking.  Father will always see to it that  sons “are led by the Spirit” out of wildernesses to fulfillment and glory, but orphans and rebels are not thinking like sons and do not know how to be led of His Spirit.

Remain Solidly Committed

DevotionToGodAs the people of God assemble today, may they recall the blessings of God and the rich, life-giving Word of God and be encouraged and strengthened to remain solidly committed to Him.
“When he arrived there, he was pleased to see what God had done for them out of kindness. So he encouraged all the people to remain solidly committed to the Lord.” (Acts 11:23, GW)


 


Sprout out on Every Branch

May you sprout out on every branch and may every bloom become valuable fruit.  May you labor under and rejoice and revel in awesome, excruciating FigLimbFruitgrowing pains that bring you to the height of your Lord’s expectations for you.  No more withering, no more stunted growth but God-enabled enlargement, production, extension, multiplication and proliferation be unto you for the glory and the Name’s sake of our LORD JESUS CHRIST and His fame in the earth. May our Lord’s success be manifest through you like a vine that bears fruit. (Jn.15:2, NKJV) ”Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.” We are praying you discover daily God’s fruitfulness in your life.
