Discover God’s Divine Purpose and Plan

January 4, 2016

“For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the LORD, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call on Me and you will come and pray to Me, and I will hear [your voice] and I will listen to you. Then [with a deep longing] you will seek Me and require Me [as a vital necessity] and [you will] find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you…” Jeremiah 29:11-14a, Amplified.
You won’t find your purpose at the mall or at the spa. You won’t find it by asking your friends a million questions about you. And frankly, no matter how many online assessment’s you take, it still won’t tell you His purpose and plan. The only way you discover God’s purpose for your life is through seeking the Lord with all of your heart. Some of us want to take the short cut, but there are none. You will have to do it the old-fashioned way and seek His face.
The powerful thing is, God promises that when we search for Him with our whole heart, we will find Him. He utters this short, but powerful phrase, “I will be found by you.” I remember when I first read those words, they jumped off the page! God says, “I will be found by Denise! I will be found by Crystal! I will be found by Brittany! Whatever your name is, you can put your name there and make it personal to you. This means your search for God’s purpose and plan for your life will not come up empty. He anticipates you discovering His purpose and plans for your life. What great things He has in store for you when you do.
Prayer: My Father God, I thank you that you care so much for me that you designed a specific purpose for me. You know me better than anyone. You made me. So I search for you with all my heart. Help me find out why I’m here on this earth. Reveal it to me God what you were thinking of when you were forming me and help me move forward into it. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Stay submitted to Me.

January 3, 2016

“For we do not have a High Priest who is unable to sympathize and understand our weaknesses and temptations, but One who has been tempted [knowing exactly how it feels to be human] in every respect as we are, yet without [committing any] sin” Hebrews 4:15, Amplified.
Even when it hurts like hell, fight to stay submitted to God. I’ve given birth to two children naturally without epidural, yet nothing compares to the emotional pain I’ve endured in my life. In the midst of it all, Jesus has helped me stay submitted to Him. Even when I was willing to do anything to make the pain stop, Jesus helped me to submit to Him and His will for me.
No matter how much pain you’re experiencing, know that Jesus dealt with excruciating pain while on the cross. To say He understands you is an understatement. He’s very familiar with both emotional and physical pain. Yet, He stayed submitted to God the Father and endured the cross. He is our example. Take up your cross and follow Him all the way to the end, come what may. He knows the pain you feel and His word for you today is, “Stay submitted to Me.”
Prayer: Oh Father, help me to stay submitted to You and obedient to your will come what may. When I bow, you rise. When I submit to your will, you raise a banner over your life. Thank you for your faithfulness to me and your truth. Love, Your Daughter
(Read Matthew 16:24-25)

Your heart is perfect for Him.

January 2, 2016

“Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart” Psalms 51:6, ESV.
There was a book I read many years ago that had the most profound effect on my life. It was, “My Heart, Christ’s Home” by Robert Boyd Munger. It was a small little pamphlet of a book that you’d ever see, but within it’s pages was profound truth. It talked about a man who let Jesus come inside the home of his heart, and while he tried to let Jesus only enter the “clean” areas, Jesus wanted to go into the closed off rooms that were locked.
In some believers, God is standing in the living room of their hearts, never being invited into those secret places. God didn’t come into our lives to have tea by the fire and give us occasional spiritual highs. He came to set the captives free. He came to heal every wound, deliver us from every fear, and make us whole and complete in Him. He takes one look at our hearts, and it’s like He’s saying, “Her heart is perfect for Me. My light will enter every room. My love will seep through every hardened place. I will tear down every stronghold and build someone that looks like Me on the inside and behaves like me on the outside. Yes, this heart is perfect for Me to work in and love.”
Let’s pray…Thank you Lord. Yes, I give you full access into every room in my heart. I know you love me. I know you only want to set me free. I surrender completely to you. Come into every room in my heart. Take my life and change it. Take my heart and free it. Take my mind and renew it until I look like you on the inside and behave like you on the outside. In Jesus’ name.

A special blessing for you.

January 1, 2016

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us” Ephesians 3:20, NKJV
I pray God blesses you exceeding abundantly above all that you can ask or think. I pray He blows your mind with His perfect timing. I pray He causes it all to align for you. Eye hasn’t seen nor has any ear heard what God has prepared for you. Eye hasn’t seen nor has any ear heard what He has in store for you. Look at the spacious place He’s brought you to. This ground is holy, you might want to remove your shoes. He’s removed the old and made all things new. All for you, because He loves you. Go and spread the news. The word that came to you, publish it. What He’s revealed to you, trust it. His truth will be your bread and water, share it. Bless others with what’s been blessing you. Impact others with what’s been impacting you. It’s your time of divine influence, and great manifestation.is coming to you daughter!
Prayer: Hallelujah my Father God! You are good, and so faithful. I receive your word in my heart and will see it manifested in my life. All of my expectations are in you. Do what only you can do within me and through me. I yield to you completely. Bless me and make me a great blessing in this earth. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
