God is saying: “You don’t understand. I know you don’t deserve it. I know you can’t make up for your thoughts and actions against Me. You could serve Me a thousand years and never make it up. But this has nothing to do with your deserving it. I’m doing this because I’ve sworn by My own blood and entered into an everlasting covenant with Myself on your behalf through Jesus. The nail scars in His hands are the guarantee and seal of the covenant. And you were there; you were in Me when I gave my life for you. Now I want to give My life to you.”
His Word compels me to step outside the comfort zone of my natural abilities into the realm of His supernatural possibilities. [Discerning the voice of God WK 4]
“It’s impossible to grow if you don’t give up what you are doing today. And take up the next challenge.”
Without knowledge of the nature of God, obedience to Him becomes more difficult
Knowing Him is an experience which draws us into His perfect will.
“If you constantly optimize your life for productivity, it doesn’t give you more time. It uses up more of your time.” – Jeff DeGraff
I DO SOLEMNLY RESOLVE to embrace my current season of life and will maximize my time in it. I will resist the urge to hurry through or circumvent any portion of my journey but will live with a spirit of contentment.
What a shame it will be that the enemy will know more of our potential than we do
Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
Romans 8:26 KJV
Don’t let yesterday’s seemingly unanswered prayers stop you from praying in faith today.
