This Is Your Year

See this as the beginning of your life.

Your past serves only to bring you to today; it doesn’t hold you; it no longer serves you–release it.

If you cling to your past, you will believe what has been is all there will be, for it will take hold of your heart and you will begin to let go of faith. It won’t seem so at first, but gradually, slowly, it will grip your heart.

“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?” Isaiah 43:18-19

Turn and take hold of your future.

Lay hold of it, for it contains the promises I have spoken previously to your heart. Many a time you have wondered if you had not heard correctly, for so much time has passed, but I reiterate them to you, for I have not forgotten and I do not repent of speaking them; but, rather, refresh them in your mind and heart.

“For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why we utter the Amen through him, to the glory of God.” II Corinthians 1:20

There is a season and a time for all things and it is to My delight when you hold a promise dear and even so you wait. For waiting cleanses the flesh, it is a selfless act–a time for humility.

You have proved faithful.

You will receive.

Continue to believe.

The non-essential cast away. Those not present, passed away.

Beneath the surface lies your future, ready to be revealed.

“Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I now declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them.” Isaiah 42:9

Begin to take the steps as I speak them to your heart. You will soon recognize that the path is new  to you, old patterns are no longer repeating, for you have grown. What you once craved no longer beckons and you stand tall.

Flex the muscle you have practiced and continue to grow, for now your ways are clear.

Clear to hear.

This is your year!

“His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, that through these you may escape from the corruption that is in the world because of passion, and become partakers of the divine nature. For this very reason make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. for if these things are yours and abound, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.” II Peter 1:1-8

 

The Key Is Not The Treasure

I want you to think of money as a tool, not a value.

Money in itself means nothing. It is like a key that unlocks a door. The key itself has little value, but what it may unlock in your life is often priceless.

Use money as a tool to accomplish your need.

Focus on the win. Do not expect chance to feed your soul but stride forward–purpose to know–purpose to become whole.

I don’t want you to worry about money, that is not your concern. I will supply what you need; the end becomes the beginning of a new open door. Have you ever noticed that you never stay facing a closed door? You turn to a new direction–never backward for that is retreat.

Come, find the way that knows no defeat.

Doors will open and doors will close, but the path is unending for those who will hear. Use what you are supplied to unlock your future. The way will be clear–only when you hear.

“And now I commend you to God and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified.

I coveted no one’s silver or gold or apparel. You yourselves know that these hands ministered to my necessities, and to those who were with me. In all things I have shown you that by so toiling one must help the weak, remembering the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.'” Acts 20:32-35

 

Today is Your Day

Your life is changing, and you see differences, and yet your senses tell you that you are not ‘there’ yet…

You are right, for you are not.

This ‘new place’ in your life is but a step in your future, but it is your now. I do not wish for you to miss today searching for tomorrow.

Tomorrow is loss if today is not well understood.

Do you understand?

Seek to know, fully, My will for your life in this time of your life; for there is fruit in every season if you will look for it.

Longing to ‘arrive’ will only prolong the wait, for if you have not matured to the fruit of this season, your heart will debate that too. Therefore, find contentment now; knowing that, if you will allow Me, I will lead you to ever-greener pastures.

“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want; he makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters; he restores my soul.” Psalms 23:1-3

For there is always more, but if you are not ready for more, then more will be wasted. And, should you not utilize what I give you now, then ‘more’ would overwhelm.

Leave the dynamics to Me–I know you completely and I have much more in store for you.

In store.

But as for now, let’s find fruit in today, for this is your day!

“And he made from one every nation of men to live on the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their habitation, that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel after him and find him. Yet he is not far from each one of us, for, ‘In him we live and move and have our being’; as even some of your poets have said. ‘For we are indeed his offspring.'” Acts 17:26-28

May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in light” Colossians 1:9b-12

“–that you may be filled in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, to lead a life worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.

“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in me, and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:4-5

“By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be my disciples. As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you; abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.” John 15:8-11

“For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God then dwell in the tents of wickedness.” Psalms 84:10

“Then he showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.” Revelation 22:1-2
