Grace

 

 

I greet you with the great grace and peace poured into our lives by God our Father and  our Master, Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 1:2

When God speaks; it is known. His Word is life and it is full of grace, peace, and hope. His Word brings Light to everything, and it changes our direction. His voice brings dead bones to life. His children know His voice, and they use His voice to greet others with grace and peace. We speak to others the way God speaks, and it brings death to life.

Today is the day you are covered in His grace, today is the day to walk in His grace. Look at yourself the way God looks at you, and then view others through His lens as well. It is all through the lens of grace. This is the day to represent God in word and deed!

How does your life change today if everything you do and say is covered in His grace? If every step you take is first taken with the idea that you are representing Him, how will that change this day for you? Will you speak differently? more or less?

With this on my mind, I speak with fewer words, and listen more for His Spirit to guide me.

He Answers

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve thrown myself  headlong into your arms–
I’m celebrating your rescue.
I’m singing at the top of my lungs,
I’m so full of answered prayers.

Psalms 13:5-6

Today is the day to jump into His arms! He is ready to catch you, rescue you from every heartache.

Today.is.the.day.

Today is the day to sing. It’s time to celebrate  all the answered prayers, every one of them.

Go ahead and sing at the top of your lungs!

He has answered my prayer to fill my heart with His presence today. He rescued me from a place of darkness and despair, confusion and hopelessness. He untwisted the web in my mind and lifted me into the light of His love. He filled me up with His heart and His mind, making light illuminate the dark areas so I could see where to go and how to think. He answered my questions, and He continues to answer.

Jump into His arms today with your desires, questions, or heartaches.

He is there for you!

 

Wake Up

Wake up, Put your face in the sunlight.

God’s bright glory has risen for you.

The whole earth is wrapped in darkness, all people sunk in deep darkness,

But God rises on you, his sunrise glory breaks over you.

Isaiah 60:1-2

The time has come to wake up! Let His light shine on your face, He is sunlight to you. He is your Glory, inside and out.

The earth is darkness, but He is light inside of you. Rise up and let glory shine throughout the darkness.

God rises in you, go today and wrap His light around the darkness until all you see is His light.

Rise up, it’s time to wake up!

God is prompting me to RISE UP, and greet each day with the Light of His face. He is challenging me to look into deeper places, and to see into the hearts of each person I encounter. His Light lives inside of me, therefore He has given me the ability to shine His Light into all dark places. His glory is in you too, and you can go out into the dark world today and shine the Light He has given you into every corner. You can rise up and let His glory break over you so that everywhere you go, there will be Light!

There was a time I lived in darkness, but then He came and wrapped His Light around me, and when His Light is wrapped around the darkness, the darkness cannot prevail!

The Wind

A new power is in operation. The Spirit of life in Christ, like a strong wind, has magnificently cleared the air, freeing you from a fated lifetime of brutal tyranny at the hands of sin and death. 

Romans 8:2

The Spirit of God lives within you, His life, is your life. His love, grace, faith, hope, mercy, and His mind belong to you. He is a strong wind within you, moving throughout your family, your community, your city, and your nation.

He is fire, He makes you too hot too handle for evil!  

Let the Wind blow within you and ignite you. Listen to the rustle that it makes, ride it's strength. Feel the warmth from the flame. Be confident in all that you are from the power of life within you. 

Freedom. 

The Spirit of God is freedom within the depths of your heart, like a strong wind inside He breaths fire, and you are hot from His flame. The tyranny of bondage cannot stand up against the wind and fire of God's Spirit!
