Speak Life

16 02 2017

The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.  Proverbs 18:21 


What we say and think are powerful influences in our lives.  Every day we have to choose whether to say what we think or what God says about the situations in our lives.  Our thoughts are often limited by our human understanding but genuine revelation comes from God. My pastor has asked what the world would be like if God’s people were consistently and constantly speaking God’s words.  What an outpouring of love, concern, peace and hope would be evident throughout the world.  Speak God’s words and speak life.

All my experiences till now prepare me for what is ahead. I can move forward in confidence. I can trust that I am not alone and that I am walking in purpose. My heart is full of gratitude for what’s next. The Creator is empowering my journey and I am thankful.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.

I want to see the path forward clearly.   The journey ahead can be obscured by the noise of the day and the dark covering of doubt. The path that I am seeking is ordained by my Creator and empowered by the Holy Spirit. I need clear landmarks and strong leading to help me with the next steps. I am thankful that the Lord provides leading when we ask and listen. I am grateful that we can trust the Lord with our whole heart. I am thanking the Lord for the blessing of a clear path forward today.

Making a Way

20 10 2016

“I will go before you and level the mountains; I will shatter the doors of bronze and cut through the bars of iron.” Isaiah 45:2

The Lord goes before us making our paths straight. Just meditating on this aspect of our wDSCF0176alk of faith blesses my soul. He is not only directing our steps but he is going before us smoothing the way. We often don’t know the way forward but He puts the spotlight on next steps. The Holy Spirit is gently guiding, planting seeds in our heart to prepare us for what’s to come. Obstacles are no match for our Heavenly Father; He can move mountains. I am so thankful for this blessing. He is making a way for me.

Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart And do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him, And He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way]. Proverbs 3:5-6 AMP


All thy Ways

 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:6

I need direction each step of the way. I want to walk with faith and purpose every day. So many days have been lost to unfocused meandering. Today I am listening, tuned in to my Creator to what is next; when, who, how and where to move. I am thankful for the Holy Spirit that guides me along the way. I am thankful for the strength and the peace that empowers my journey. I am thankful for God’s direction for each step trusting God all the way.

Trust God from the bottom of your heart;     don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;     he’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all. Proverbs 3:5-6 MSG


Tuned In

15 09 2016

Show me the right path, O Lord; point out the road for me to follow.  Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me.   All day long I put my hope in you.        Psalm 25:4-5

 I want to be tuned in to what God is saying. I want to hear clearly what is being spoken to me, to my heart and my mind. My ear is to the ground and in the air, listening for what is to come. It may not be a burning bush moment, but I believe God is speaking. The messages are pulling on my heart, challenging my mind, and pushing me out of my comfort zone. At moments when it is hard, I want to recoil and question who is really speaking but then I realize I am not alone. If I move forward in God’s leading, God is with me. God is empowering my steps with courage, guiding my words, and moving me into my purpose.

 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11 NLT  


Guide My Heart

14 09 2016

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Psalm 51:10

 I want my heart and motives to be in the right place at all times. The Holy Spirit provides direction about moving away from emotions that are not empowered by God. I am thankful for this leading. It keeps me in good stead in making wise decisions and not falling prey to anger, resentment and other dark emotions. I want a clean heart. I want to be moving directly toward my purpose each day. I want to avoid meandering in distraction and other obstacles that keep me from my moving forward.  

Today, I ask the Lord to guide my heart, as I move forward in purpose.
