Hold on a little while longer 

Standard

I just wanted to take a moment to encourage your hearts on today. Many of you have been praying. 
Many of you have been hearing from God. Many of you have been moving actively on what God’s called you to do but you’re still not seeing anything come to pass yet.  
You’re still not seeing the fruit of your labor and I want to encourage your hearts on today not to give up.  

Don’t faint!

Don’t quit!

Keep pushing!

Keep fighting!

Keep praying!

Keep believing because in the end it will speak. The vision is for an appointed time.

God says in Ecclesiastes 3:11 that “He makes all things beautiful and it’s time.” So on today I want to encourage your hearts to keep pushing. Pray until something happens! 
That’s right pray until something happens.  It’s almost as if you’re a woman who is in labor. Right now, the doctors are saying that the head is crowning. He can see the head coming but you can’t quit now, that baby won’t push itself
out.  You have to be active in pushing that baby out. It’s even the same in our spiritual walk. It’s even the same in our natural lives, we may not see things happen immediately but we have to put some action to it. We have to also put
some prayer to it.

Even as Elijah did in I Kings 18:41– 44, you may have to pray 7 times to see the promise manifest. Again, if you are not seeing anything yet keep pushing don’t give up.
 The will of God is not always automatic in our lives. We have to pray and act until we see God bring change. 
You are on the verge of a breakthrough. You’re right there!
 Don’t stop now. The vision is for an appointed time and it will speak.
 All you have to do is hold on just a little while longer.

Father I thank you now for your people.
 I thank You for what you’re doing in their lives. I thank You Father God for bringing them to a place of breakthrough, to a place of freedom. 
I thank You for bringing them to a place of answered prayers. Thank You that they will see what you have been saying come to pass in their everyday life Lord. I give you praise for infusing them with inner strength right now God so that they may hold
on even through the process. And father thank You for loving your people the way you do. Thank You for always being there; for always showing Yourself faithful on our behalf.
 For You never leave us, You never forsake us. Thank You for all that You’re doing right now. In Jesus name Amen.

Grace and Peace,

Mary

It’s all about your focus

Standard

Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NLT)

Today, instead of looking at what’s going wrong in your life, find the good. Having a  grateful attitude can turn your lives around. What are you grateful for?CnqmmoTXEAAS4po

Lord, teach us to focus more on the great things you are doing in our lives and not just the things that are going wrong. There is so much that You are doing in our lives that are good. Help us to see the good and be grateful. In Jesus name, Amen

Grace and Peace,

Write The Vision

Standard

 

Where there is no vision, the people are unrestrained, but happy is he who keeps the law. Proverbs 29:18 (NASB)

write

Vision is defined as something seen or otherwise perceived. It is the act or power of anticipating that which will or may come to be; a prophetic vision. Vision is the missing ingredient from many of our lives today. Many of us are living life carelessly, without aim or proper guidance.  We cast off all restraints and run wild because we have no vision for our future.

This state of mind is an enemy to a life of discipline. When we have no clue about what is before us, we are prone to falter along the way.  Vision helps to create a proper playing field for us along the course of our journey.  It helps to set up restraints to keep us in bound when it comes to reaching our goals. A person with vision has an understanding that everything is not profitable when it comes to staying on task. There are no cutting corners involved; only following the blue print that is outlined will get you to your desired end.

God instructed Habakkuk to write the vision and make it plain. So others may see it and run with it. (Habakkuk 2:2). Have you taken the time to pursue God about the vision for your life? Remember, He has every day of our lives recorded in His book. He knows the thoughts and the plans that He has for us. Those thoughts are to give us a future and a hope. He already established our expected end, before we were even a thought.

Run to Him today and seek out His plans for your life. Now is not the time to make haphazard decisions about your future. Be a visionary. Begin to focus on the vision God has already created for your life. It is then that you will be able to gather the proper instructions, the guidance and the grace to move forward and accomplish your goals.

Father, you created each of us with a built in purpose and design. Forgive us for not coming to you daily to seek out the blueprint for our lives. Today, we ask that you impart within us all the vision that you have for our lives. Allow us a glimpse of your intended purpose for our lives. As you do, I pray that we will begin to run with the vision You have provided and forsake what we have created for ourselves. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

 

Shalom,

Mary

Take Rest..

Standard

God has not overlooked you.

He is still at work making you and me into the vessels He desires us to be. Release the weight of the vision to Him, the anxiety and the “how tos” of accomplishing it all.

Trust Him to lead you to His expected end.

time1

Take rest in Him as you await His perfect timing.

Father, teach us how to come to you and rest today. Your thoughts towards us are good and not evil. We can trust our lives, our visions, our dreams to you for safe keeping. Everything that we have committed to your hands you are able to uphold and bring it to full fruition. May we come to you and lay every burden down today and rest in your unfailing love.

Grace and Peace,

Mary
