You Shall Surpass!

A must read in DUE season!

The Ministry Girl Chronicles

…Cry aloud, You who have not labored with child!

For more are the children of the desolate, Than the children of the married woman,” says the Lord. Isaiah 54:1

 

 

This is a direct command from God to offer a sacrificial praise to Him in the midst of unfruitfulness!

He is speaking to the ones that have tried over and over again to make it happen but couldn’t. The disappointed, the bitter and broken. It may seem like your life has been a vicious repeat and a Groundhog day from hell, but God is quickening you by His Spirit to CRY OUT in praise to Him for the very thing that there is no evidence of…,your fruitfulness!

The Word of God says

Now, Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the EVIDENCE of things unseen (Hebrews 11:1)

The very thing we do not see, by FAITH we have…

Our Focal Point

focus_on_jesus1

Why does it seem so difficult to turn the phone off, the laptop and television in order to quiet ourselves from the hustle and bustle of everyday life? We are so used to managing noise, agendas and relationships that keep us distracted, busy and overwhelmed most of the time. Juggling all of these things can lead to frustration, depression and confusion if we are not allowing God to be God IN all of it!

Our Heavenly Father gave us a command in Psalm 46, BE still!

Be still and KNOW that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations;
I will be exalted in the earth!

Be still before him, rest, take a deep breath…stop trying to figure it all out, stop trying to do it yourself. Being still is the ONLY way you will receive the second part…AND KNOW that I am God.

God wants you to let HIM be God in your life! This is how He is exalted among the nations and in the earth!

We have an assignment in this earth…a race that we must finish! Jesus is our focal point and we must first be still and allow God to speak into our hearts, move on our hearts and refresh our soul; Or it is inevitable that we become weary. In our quiet time with the Lord, we must lay it all down and surrender every area that is bringing heaviness and distraction, then leave it there at His feet.

In Hebrews 12:2 it says; let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus. In order to finish this race, we MUST focus on Jesus Christ and keep Him first.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father I need your help. Please open up my heart and reveal to me the areas that I need to surrender to you and then help me lay them all down here at your feet. Refresh me with your sweet Holy Spirit and your gentleness. Give me wisdom to approach the various situations in my life that seem daunting. Most of all Lord teach me how to quiet myself before you. In Jesus name, amen.

Scripture references:

Be still and KNOW that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations;
I will be exalted in the earth!

Psalm 46

Therefore, we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Hebrews 12:1-2

Guard your heart!

Are you paying attention to what you allow into your heart?
Proverbs 4:23 Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life.
God instructs us to protect our heart from allowing just any old thing into it. I challenge you today to pray and ask God to show you the things in your everyday life that are destructive to your heart and therefore your life. I also challenge you to obey His voice once He reveals those things to you! Close the door to the enemy’s entrance into your life in Jesus name!

Do we really think about how Sovereign and awesome God is? Do we really think about how Holy and powerful He is?

God of the whole universe who is seated on this amazing throne in heaven cares about….US!

I am guilty of not always acknowledging the majesty of God or His Lordship over all things. As a matter of fact I tend to make the problems in my life bigger than God, not only this but I also tend to think about what I am facing more than the ONE whom I must face one day.

As I have been examining myself, I have found that I have been disappointed about the trials that I have had to face in my life. They seem repetitive and constant, which can be down right discouraging. As I was praying last night, the Lord said to me… Even if you never see the manifestation of…

This day, says the Lord, I come to restore you and to remove all reproach. I come not only to restore, but to inspire. You are designed for greater things than you have the ability to see. My gifting in you and My power and anointing on you will perfect you and will cause you to come to the elevated place that I have prepared for you. Lay aside the oppression and come with great joy. My kingdom is a kingdom of joy, for in the Spirit of the Living Lord there is joy, liberty, peace and power. The anointing will be poured out upon you so that you will not only be restored, but you will be strengthened beyond what you have ever known. These are days of My glory on the Elijah company, those who will be used to cause a full restoration that will impact My Church. Forget all things that are behind you, and move forward without hesitation.

Don’t stop Believing!

There comes a time when we have to take the Promises that God has placed in our hearts from His Word … HOLD ON AND KEEP BELIEVING what He said …Even when circumstances aren’t lining up with what He said! “I am still Healed even when I have pain”, “My God SHALL supply ALL of my needs”, I AM the Righteousness of God in Christ Jesus”, I shall not fail to fruit in spite of the barrenness!” KEEP PRESSING, KEEP PRAYING, KEEP STANDING, KEEP BELIEVING AND KEEP TRUSTING IN GOD!!!!!

Follow Me

Sin brings darkness to your soul and spirit as well as to your environment.  It is never too late to repent and be forgiven.  Then, you must rise up out of the darkness into the light of My presence and into new life–life in the Spirit.  And, establish peace and light in your environment, says the Lord. 

 

John 8:12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”
