Last night in a vision, I encountered a young girl, who was singing some songs that were not reaching her audience. I then directed her to sing the following song, which resonated well with her audience. I will include the first few lines along with the video of the song itself.
God sent His son, they called Him Jesus
He came to love, heal and forgive
He lived and died to buy my pardon
An empty grave is there to prove my savior lives
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow
Because He lives, all fear is gone
Because I know He holds the future
And life is worth the living, just because He lives
As I re-directed this young girl in my vision to switch to this song, I woke up realizing what this song means. This is a song that depicts how Jesus came into this world, because of the love that God has for us. His birth was for a purpose – a purpose to save mankind from sins and to give us hope and peace. Hence, I definitely believe God gave me a word in season, to share with others, that no matter the circumstances of life and what you have been through; because He lives, you can face tomorrow.
If you are struggling to find your way to Jesus, remember He came to love, heal and forgive. Therefore, as we approach the new year, you have a choice – a choice to renew or direct your life into His hands. Forget the failures of 2013, and trust God to lead you into 2014. He is more than a conqueror.
I just want to remind you that you have been fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalms 139:14). With that being said, you know that you are not just here by chance. God created you with a purpose in mind, so you have to press to pursue your purpose.
The question you need to ask yourself as you are preparing to say goodbye to 2013, is: How many of my God-given purpose(s) have I accomplished in 2013? If you have faltered along the way, don’t worry; you are alive, and that means you still have hopes and a purpose(s) to accomplish.
So be proactive, and press to pursue your purpose(s) in 2014!
God bless you!
“Glory to God in the highest; peace on earth; goodwill toward men” (Luke 2:14). I have been rehearsing this scriptural line with my three-year old daughter. She’s playing the role of an angel in a Christmas pageant at her preschool. As we practice the line together, and I hear her say it, I am blown away by the greatest peace to have ever grace this earth – the birth of Jesus. His birth has brought peace to all men on the face of this earth.
As we approach this Christmas season, you must remember that no matter what tribulations may come your way, the peace of God which passes all understanding, shall guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:7).
May the Grace and Peace of God be with you all!
If I answer your prayer at once, it’s because I am testing your faith. If I did not answer your prayer at once, it’s because I am testing your patience. If I did not answer your prayer at all, it’s because I have a better plan for you.
Remember, God’s promises are yes and Amen! He is God, not man; which explains why He can never fail. Hold on, don’t be discouraged. Your miracle is knocking at the door of your heart.
If something does not happen the way you pray for it to happen and the time you want it to happen, remember your way is not God’s way. You can’t see the future, but He can.
Something might look glittering to you, and you want it now, but the Lord knows deep down, that it’s not the best thing for you; therefore He refuses to let you have it. You, on the other hand, just look at now, and not later. Hence, this is why people sometimes get into trouble when they run ahead of God, and not wait. When the trouble gets unbearable, they have to run back to Him for help.
You cannot handle your problems all by yourself. You’ve got to let go and let God! Everything that glitters is not gold! Let Him determine when it is gold. If He knows it’s gold and it’s good for you, He won’t withhold it from you.
God doesn’t withhold anything good from His people. We are reminded in Psalms 34:17, “The righteous cry, and the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles.” Be among the righteous today, and not among the sinners. You need God’s attention. No matter what the situation is, He is able to deliver.
A little more faith is what you need to see all your needs met. Claim your blessings today! Do not let the devil rob it! He is here to steal and destroy. Therefore, the time you decided to get discouraged and quit, it’s the time the blessing was about to be poured down!
Satan’s job is to frustrate and allow you to lose faith and patience, in order for you to give up and throw in the towel. By doing so, you will lose all that’s in store for you. If the Lord give you something, hold on to it, and do not let the enemy rob it from you. If the Lord has given you a blessing and the devil took it away, reclaim it again! There are more in store!
You’ve got to press! There is blessing in pressing! You can’t get anything too easy. Therefore, when you think of giving up, no matter how rough and chance-less the situation appears, remember that there is nothing impossible with God. You just need to exercise faith and patience.
Don’t forget, the prayer answering God is saying that He has met all your needs!
