Look Back and Move Forward

REFLECTING ON THE PAST – TO CHANGE OUR MIND ABOUT THE FUTURE

 

Reflect on your past in order to make quality decisions regarding your direction.
 

Look back only to move forward. 

It is not where you actually are, rather, remember to keep in remembrance your change, your mission, and to commit to move forward and progress.
 
Change your mind and you change your trajectory
 
 
 
 
 


Have Faith In God !

“Strength in the finished work of GOD gives HOPE and increases your FAITH in GOD.”

How would you live if you were absolutely sure… ?

Think about this … 

 There’s this job that you want. It’s That DREAM job, that Life changing position, and it is sure to be yours … all you would have to do is apply.   

Would You Apply? 

Or would you disregard it because you’d think:

Why am I sure to get it?

I bet someone’s got it already.

When would I have to start? 

Yeah, right!

What do I gotta do?

Why are you sure to get it? I have no idea, why HE chose you … it just is.  ‘Why me’ is something people say a lot in turmoil and in great occurrences, and the answer is … This is Life. Life is Good (with a few bad ripples along the way). Life is what you make it. Jesus said I’ve come so that you might have Life and Live it more abundantly. HE wants you to have Life even more than you could ever want for yourself.  You’re sure to get it because it is yours, it’s your birthright waiting for you.

I bet someone’s got it already.  Guess what? What’s yours is yours and what God has for you is For You!  That saying, “Stay in your lane” is so relevant here. The job posting said the job was Yours, why are you worried about someone coming to get it? You’re Looking around, sizing up the competition in a (your-name-here) Competition – Where athletes compete to be the greatest (your-name-here) of all time! By Expecting someone else to get there first, You’re forfeiting the race!

Don’t do that … you hit the ground running and stay in your lane!

When would I have to start?  Totally get it, life is busy! We have children, spouses, family, friends, the folks down at the … we have a lot going on. You can’t just stop right now and start this Brand new thing.  This is crazy! Crazy? Nope, you can’t just call things ‘crazy’ all of the time because you don’t understand them. You may not understand how you’re getting this job, you may not even fully understand the actual job, but how will you know anything if you don’t even try. GOD’s ways aren’t our ways. GOD’s route is different from the others. Reality is,You can start whenever you want to; but the Question arises, What are you waiting for?

You saw that your DREAM job was up for grabs, and that you were guaranteed the gig. Your Response, ‘Yea, Right!’

A lot of us do this and we don’t even notice. We want to know what that catch is. There is No Catch – I can go through pages and pages of typing, proving it to you but I’ll leave that to your time of reflection. 

Ap·pli·ca·tion

ˌapləˈkāSH(ə)n/

  1. the action of putting something into operation.

What You need to do is Apply!

It’s winter, and for some of us there’s snow outside. Putting on our gear to keep warm, going outside, grab some snow, matting it together, shaping it, rolling it; creating a bigger and bigger ball of Snow-TAKES WORK! It’s going to take some application from you to turn you into your DREAM you! You believe you can do it but are You willing to Apply?

Faith without works is dead, so believe first then apply instead of applying and doubting. Don’t cancel out your application. 

Again, How would you live if you were absolutely sure?

How would you live if you were absolutely sure that you would WIN?

If you were sure you’d get that job?

If you were sure you would win that competition?

Being Strong and bold in GOD’s ways, decreases the doubts that we have in ourselves and increases our drive to play out what we know GOD can do with us. 



Make_the_Demand

Notice: The DEMAND ensures the SUPPLY,
(which is already there)

As for finances, Notice the demand ensures the supply, which is already there, put up in store for you. It’s already done. Just make the DEMAND.

Make the Request, take—receive it—Take the receipt.

 

Once upon a time—not long ago—as a Nana—I noticed one of my grandchildren, who was born a preemie, was having some challenges with taking his asthma medicine through an inhaler. It required an awkward 2-step process whereby my 6 year old grandson had to maneuver the inhaler with his hands and breathe in at the same time with the hope it would be inhaled into his lungs with enough medicine to make a difference. After watching him struggle with this several times and still end up coughing way more than usual I began to ask questions. It was in my spirit that he was not getting the full benefit of the medication. Earlier when he came to visit he had an inhaler that seemed so much more efficient—all he had to do was pump and breathe in. I asked his mom what was going on and she shared that he was now taking the generic version of the previous medication, because the brand name version was significantly more expensive.

So bottom line, this was the best she could afford. It meant more work and was less effective for my grandchild, but less cost. Less work for him and a more effective outcome would cost more! As a loving grandparent this did not sit well with me at all!

So I offered to our daughter that we would pick up the cost difference so that he could get the more useful and efficient inhaler. So as we moved forward with this plan—making a DEMAND for what was best for our beloved grandson, we discovered first that if she purchased a 3 month supply the cost was somewhat less—so we moved quickly to get this done. Then the real divine surprise happened. As our daughter went to RECEIVE the medicine and TAKE it—she was asked if she had a coupon. She then remembered that a couple of years earlier she did get a coupon, but due to his age he was not eligible at that time. But now he was eligible—now she received a 90% discount! We had sowed the seed—and the harvest was that this medication was NOW affordable! Glory to God!

So what happened? The DEMAND was made for the best, and SUPPLY / PROVISION was already there for the TAKING. This may seem simple, and perhaps not even noteworthy to some—but this is how God works—even in the simple things in life—HE shows up if we move in His Best! In the Kingdom of God, we don’t have to settle for less, when God urges us to make a DEMAND, and RECEIVE what HE has already SUPPLIED! Then we do need to Praise Him for it! AMEN!

JESUS said, I come that you might have life and that more abundantly. Also, God will do exceedingly abundantly above all that we could ever ask or think, according to the Power that works within us! CHRIST IN YOU (US), THE HOPE OF GLORY!



Learn To Rest

 

Learn To Rest

Some think it is easy to rest. Just lay down. Well, those who have tried, know that not only do you need to learn to work, but you also need to learn to rest. Staying in bed or on the couch all night long does not mean that you have rested. God wants us to enter into HIS REST, not when we pass away, but right now while we are wherever we are – we need to learn to rest.
 

Hebrews 3:6-11 Message (MSG)

Now, if we can only keep a firm grip on this bold confidence, we’re the house! That’s why the Holy Spirit says, Today, please listen; don’t turn a deaf ear as in “the bitter uprising,” that time of wilderness testing! Even though they watched me at work for forty years, your ancestors refused to let me do it my way; over and over they tried my patience. And I was provoked, oh, so provoked! I said, “They’ll never keep their minds on God; they refuse to walk down my road.” Exasperated, I vowed, “They’ll never get where they’re going, never be able to sit down and rest.”
 

Philippians 2:4-6 King James Version (KJV)

4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
 

Galatians 2:20 King James Version (KJV)

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
 
We are one with CHRIST, and yes, you do need to learn to rest. Not the physical rest, but the SPIRITUAL REST in GOD. Cease from your own work in your own mind and REST in GOD’s MIND––the Mind of CHRIST, The Anointing (GOD) and GOD’s Anointed (JESUS). So you see, you need to learn how to rest.
 
So let’s look at what it looks like. It looks like when you move from that energetic unction in your inner core to do and act.
  • When you move from that energetic place — That’s a rest.
  • When you pray from the prompting and unction of GOD’s SPIRIT. That’s a rest.
  • When you pray from the prompting and unction of THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • When you breathe knowing that GOD’s got this. That’s a rest.
  • When you know in your knowing, that’s a rest.
  • When you hear GOD clearly, like now, that’s a rest.
 
“Enter into my rest and cease from your own work. Yes, study and read the WORD and meditate and fast AND learn to walk in MY REST when it’s application time of all of that you’ve gained. Apply with MY REST. Rest in ME, MY finished work, MY already done victorious work and SOAR.”
 

Hebrews 4:3

For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.
 

Hebrews 4:4-6 King James Version (KJV)

4 For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works.
5 And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest.
6 Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief
 
Now apply the WORD, and “learn to walk in MY REST”
