I don’t know about you, but when things don’t go as I plan, I normally want to change the plan (which is a NATURAL thing to do??). However, when we’re in the midst of a SPIRITUAL Journey, the rules change! The Lord will ask us to do things that are a tad uncomfortable (like WAITING until He tells us to take the next step!). He takes us out of the realm of reasoning and into the spiritual realm of FAITH. Contrary to popular belief, when we operate in faith, it does not mean that there’s the absence of doubt. I’m now two months into this new journey and I’m struggling!
And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke,” we also believe and therefore speak, … II Corinthians 4:13 NKJV
So, I ENCOURAGED myself with this Facebook Inspiration post…
EVERY DAY….. Your journey will only get Better!!
… knowing that He who raised up the Lord Jesus will also raise us up with Jesus, and will present us with you. II Corinthians 4:14 NKJV
Resurrection power come forth, as we speak to all the lifeless things in our lives!
Then, as the month draws to a close, this Facebook memory pops up!!!
NEXT JOURNAL ENTRIES (April, 2018)
My day started with a Facebook memory for March 21st, 2012…
The Holy Spirit reminded me that my true purpose is MINISTRY, which was birthed through Order Your Steps in September of 2011! I had to be mindful of the task at hand and allow the Lord to lead and guide me along the way.
A very dear friend and minister sends me the Spirit of Prophecy bulletin for my daily devotional. It never fails to hit me exactly where I am in that moment and today was no different…
SPIRIT OF PROPHECY
Revelation 19:10b “Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns
March 21, 2018: Beloved, I want to help you see and hear spiritual truth. To do this you must look without fear, prejudice, or expectation. You cannot allow anything to color or distort what I show you, but rather take it at face value. When you see something do not add anything to it or take anything away from it. Look with eyes wide open, ears ready to hear, and a heart ready to receive, says the Lord.
John 16:13 “However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.”
Coincidence? I think NOT!!
