It is a New Day

“Listen carefully, I am about to do a new thing, now it will spring forth…” Isaiah 43:19, Amplified.

God is getting ready to shift you into a new place. You will have to let go of the old ways of doing things. It is a new day. God has troubled the waters so that you can be thrust into your new season in Him. He has hardened some people’s hearts and made their eyes so they can not see or understand you. He is showing you who you are in Him and who He is in you. He is closing the mouths of those you crave approval from so you can find your confidence in His Word alone. He is pruning you and you will produce more fruit for His glory. You will reach more people than you thought possible and touch the lives of many. It is time you rise up from your place and accept God’s invitation and His calling to go higher and to go deeper. You may be all in your feelings because of your situation, my sister, but you’re about to be all in His divine purpose and fulfilling His awesome plan for your life.

He will be glorified in the earth and He will be glorified in your life.

Prayer: Father God, thank you for speaking directly to my heart. Help me to not stay where I am, but let go and embrace you with both hands. Help me, Father, to pursue you with the same intensity that you pursued and won me. I want to be all you created me to be. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

The LORD has not turned His back on you!

“And if by grace, then it is no more of works…” Romans 11:6

To be disgraced is to be out of favor with. Have you ever felt like you were out of favor with God? As though He had turned His back on you? As though He no longer loved you? Yes, you knew He loved you and favored you before, but now that your hopes have been deferred, your dreams have been delayed and your prayers seem denied, what now? You ask, “Does God still favor me?” We’ve all been there and the answer is, yes, He does.

God loves you and He favors you. Period. Even when you can’t see it, let your heart believe. You may want God to bless you like never before, but will you trust Him like never before? Will you believe like never before that you are favored by God and He knows you by name? He will be glorified in your life in ways unimaginable and you will live totally free from all feelings of disgrace!

Prayer: Father God, thank You for speaking directly to my heart. I’m sorry for whenever I doubted Your love for me. I know You love me. Your hand is on my life even when it doesn’t look like it. You wouldn’t call me then distance Yourself from me. You wouldn’t make a covenant with me and not uphold Your end. You wouldn’t go through all that You did to reconcile me to You only to abandon me. I love You, LORD, and I submit to You. In Jesus name, Amen.
