“Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began.” 2 Timothy 1:9 (KJV)
Have you ever felt as though your life had taken a drastic turn and you felt nowhere near where God wanted you to be? You can feel too late, too lost, too slow, and like you have lost too much time.
Many of us know all too well, but be encouraged. No matter where you are in life, you have a purpose and a destination that God is getting you to. If you are still breathing and are still alive, God is at work. You may have taken a wrong turn, but God in His infinite wisdom will get you back to His desired destination right on time. You are never too lost for Him and you are never too far away.
Things are about to change for you, and you’re going to have to get acquainted with being right where you are supposed to be. Don’t worry. He’s got you and He’s not letting you go until you fulfill your purpose and become all He thought of when He was creating you!
Prayer: My God. Thank You for ministering to me in such a special way. I love You. You know where I am in life and how to get me where You want me to be. You are my hope and my confidence. Have Your way in my life. I yield to You and I trust You. Thanks for taking me by my hand and escorting me into Your perfect will for my life. In Jesus Name, Amen.

“But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God” Acts 20:24, NKJV.
“Great things are coming down the pipeline for you in the coming days, and there will also be great adversity. I’m telling you now so you can set your heart, set your mind, set your feet and set your faith. Let My Word be your shield and your buckler. Let My Word guard around you at every side, making you impenetrable. If you set your heart on Me now and keep it set, you will continue to run the race I’ve set before you no matter the opposition, betrayal, persecution or offense. If you let the Truth of My Word sink deeply into your soul and stay on your lips and nourish your mind, you will finish the ministry I’ve given you to testify to the Gospel of My grace. You are a testimony of the power of My grace, and you will not be thrown off course by any plot of the enemy. Great peace have they that love My Word, and nothing, no nothing, shall cause them to stumble. Listen to the voice of My Spirit that is speaking to you now. I will always, always prepare you for what lies ahead, both blessings and adversity, but it’s up to you to fix your mind on Me. It’s up to you to dig deeper into My Word so I can guard your heart and mind, guard your love for Me, guard your passion for Me, and guard the vision I’ve given you. You won’t fall to the left, My daughter, and you won’t fall to the right. You will continue to press toward the mark for the prize of My high calling come what may. Says the LORD.”
