The joy of the Lord is our strength!!
WALK IT OUT
It’s a brand new year with brand new opportunities! It’s a great time to refocus and reprioritize the things of God and His plans for your life in this season. The more you focus on the Lord: reading, praying, and studying the Word of God the more your desires will align with His will for your life and the more He can reveal and give to you. Seek the Lord and lay out your requests before Him, and trust that He will direct you and show you the way you should go. The Lord will bless you abundantly with the things that matter the most in your life which are spiritual and enduring even as you prosper in the natural. Remember not to become super focused on pursuing material gains that will ALL pass away while forsaking the pursuit of spiritual fruit in your life which is the most important for you and the body of Christ as a whole. Trust the Lord and trust the process as He leads and guides you from day to day. Unfortunately we live in a sin sick world, and will all have to deal with the negative influences and hurtful words and deeds of those around us who fail to walk in the Spirit and in obedience to the Word by choice or negligence. This is the day that the Lord has made so rejoice in it and give praise for all of the great things that lay before us! God is good and He is faithful to do exactly what He has promised each of us His children, so trust Him and never doubt. What you need God’s got it, so seek ye first the Kingdom of God that he can supply it for you and for me!
STAND ON THE WORD
4 Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
7 Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
