Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. Isaiah 43:18-19
I am simply thankful this morning that God chose to wake me up with breath in my body, clothed and in my right mind, submerged in peace that simply surpasses all understanding (Genesis 2:7, Mark5:15, Philippians 4:7). I want to encourage somebody right now to be still and know that He is God. Your trouble is temporary (2 Corinthians 2:14). Keep your mind set on things above, instead of being inundated with the obsessions, distractions, and troubles of this world (Colossians 3:2). Be present and available for what God is about to do in YOUR life. Do not give any consideration to the merits or the malaise of your past (Isaiah 43:18). That frustrating situation you are currently facing is a well timed ploy of the enemy to cause you to absentmindedly miss the open door to your destiny that God has made available to you (Proverbs 14:7, Revelation 3:8). Do not be deceived. Break from your normal habit of succumbing to the havoc around you. The energy you spend nursing the neurotic is needed to nurture yourself and your circumstances in preparation for the next level (Psalm 75:6-7).
God is ALWAYS blessing you because of your obedience to Him (Deuteronomy 28:1-14). Be available to hear the commands that God is giving you right now, and be faithful and obedient (Deuteronomy 28:1, Revelation 2). Your life is a testimony of how God blesses on an exponential and perpetual basis. But you can’t see the accumulation of God’s blessing when you honor and uphold that which steals your peace, inhibits your elevation, and causes you to doubt God’s lavish love and intention for your life (Matthew 6:21, Galatians 6:7). Be still and know that what God is leading you to and urging you to do is the right thing for you, as established before you were planted in your mother’s womb (Psalm 46:10, Jeremiah 1:5). Do what you have to do to stay focused on God's plan for your life, perceiving for yourself in the midst of what could be considered calamity that this is the appointed time for His favor to bring your destiny to fruition (Habakkuk 2:3, Genesis 18:4). I am rejoicing with you on the precipice of your breakthrough!
Be Blessed! ~Nina
