Father Will Finish What He Started in You

There are many experiences which we have in life that have altered our behavior. Sometimes we have learned from them but in some cases we have allowed certain experiences to dictate changes to us which have, in turn, affected progress to our destiny. Some of those effects will not be immediate but they hold long-term results for us. Some of us have had experiences where we have trusted God in certain matters and, when expected results did not take place, we stopped believing God in those areas. There have been instances when we trusted in fellow Christians and in ministers who let us down and we adjusted our behavior for future reference and self-preservation. There are people who were once convinced that they had a true prophecy from God or that they had received a burden or a vision from God that was their life’s call and nothing ever materialized on the matter. When that happens we determinedly embrace a “paradigm shift” and woe be to anyone who tries to talk us out of it. Once we were convinced that God’s intentions toward us were large but because we experienced a repeated hindrance, we can end up believing we never did hear from God. Then we wind up believing in our disappointing experience more than we believe the Word of the Lord. But, let us lift up our heads and trust to Father God who desires our fulfilled destiny more than we do, for ”I am convinced and confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will [continue to] perfect and complete it until the day of Christ Jesus [the time of His return].” (Phil.1:6, Amp)



God’s Planned Horizons

May you reach the next horizon with strength to spare and may you rocket into the heart of the God-ordained participation that awaits you horizonboatsunbeyond that horizon. May you realize the knowing and joy and fulfillment of participating with our Lord and His purposed-people over that horizon.  ”Jesus said, “You’re tied down to the mundane; I’m in touch with what is beyond your horizons. You live in terms of what you see and touch. I’m living on other terms.” (Jn.8:23, Msg)  Today, even now, we can lift our eyes beyond the limitations and doubts of our environment and our immediate circumstances. Today, we can hear the voice of Him Who calls us to open up our considerations for His possibilities. We are praying you discover daily Almighty God’s horizons and His desire to get you there.

No More Stagnation

May that which stagnates stagnate no longer. May the Lord put doors in obstacles for
you to go through or else, remove them. May you move forward with markable progress.

“The Lord God is my Strength, my personal bravery, and my invincible army; He makes
my feet like hinds’ feet and will make me to walk [not to stand still in terror, but to walk]
AND MAKE [spiritual] PROGRESS upon my high places [of trouble, suffering,
or responsibility]!” (Hab.3:19, Amp)

Maintain Your Confidence

ManArrowsForwardMay you be able to maintain your confidence in God and His
will for you as you face every trial and discouragement. May
our Lord help you endure and accomplish all He has
designed for you to walk in. 

“Do not, therefore, fling away your fearless confidence, for
it carries a great and glorious compensation of reward. For
you have need of steadfast patience and endurance, so that
you may perform and fully accomplish the will of God, and
thus receive and carry away [and enjoy to the full] what is
promised.” (Heb.10:35-36, Amp)

Set Up For Profitable Progress

grabbing someoneMay the Lord keep you from circumstances, events and people that would hold you back from any form of progress that would cause you to be blessed and to be a proper representative of His purposes. May the hand that reaches out to clutch you, detain you and taint you with undesirable identity, lose its grip. And may the Lord delightfully set you up for profitable progress.

“From one disaster after another he delivers you;  no matter what the calamity, the evil can’t touch you—”Job 5:19 (Msg)
