Be Not Conformed to Present Circumstances

As the people of God assemble around the family table or the TV or the computer screen, may they give themselves fully to The Potter, the Master Molder and Shaper potterof vessels, knowing that The Potter is never without purpose and He knows just how to work the clay to form the vessel for the right time and the right place. May they be conformed to His purposeful shaping and not be conformed to the present circumstances of the world. ”…as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand” (Jer.18:6, Amp) “My own sheep will hear my voice and I know each one, and they will follow me. 28 I give to them the gift of eternal life and they will never be lost and no one has the power to snatch them out of my hands. 29 My Father, who has given them to me as his gift, is the mightiest of all, and no one has the power to snatch them from my Father’s care. 30 The Father and I are one.” (Jn.10:27-31, TPT)


About to be Called up

Melissa — There is something big shifting that requires us to move forward inch-by-inch as ArmyRomanStanding.jpgGod directs.  It’s about being restored to take possession.  There are things that each of us have been created to lay our hands to and we are about to be called up.  As we move forward with tenacity and God frustrates the devices of the wicked, we will each begin to see our place in the upcoming future. Just take rest in knowing you don’t have to have it all figured out and on track in the next 24 hours. Just simply start with realizing that He is the One that restores your soul and leads you in paths of righteousness.


Where is Our Focus?

In Jn.14:1 when Jesus is instructing His disciples to not let their hearts be troubled, Jesus is saying, “Stop putting your thoughts on those things, consciously and CameraFocusdeterminedly steer your thoughts back on to Me”. That does not mean you put your head in the sand, it means putting your focus where it belongs. There were probably disciples saying, “But I know the waves are there! I am sitting in 6in. of water!” But the answer is not in focusing on the waves but focusing on Him who is so desiring to pull me up out of the waves and on Him who is so desirous to stop the waves. “We look away from the natural realm and we fasten our gaze onto Jesus who birthed faith within us…” (Heb.12:2a, TPT)

Something Big Churning

Melissa — I feel something big churning as of late.  I do know that some of it is about the decade, but more importantly I believe this discernment is about getting ready for the rest of 2020. I believe that the latter part of 2020 is very significant to FlagIwo.jpghow we enter the rest of the decade. As I write this I see a picture of the American flag being raised by brave Marines at Iwo Jima during World War II. In researching this battle this statement stuck out, “The battle was won by the inch-by-inch tenacity of the foot soldier,” (Iwojima.com).  2020 will be won “by the inch-by-inch tenacity of the foot soldier,” right now.  For those that struggle with an all-or-nothing drive, (like me) the statement “inch-by-inch tenacity” can be almost devastating. I really prefer a battle being done in a one-glorious-moment tenacity! Here’s the thing with the remainder of 2020, the inch-by-inch is going to lead to many glorious moments in the coming years. (This is the first excerpt from Melissa’s article “Something Churning”.)
