Well, I’m a gal all zealed up for Jesus again today by His Holy Spirit moving my heart to go for Him, sweet family!!! Oh I just get all excited about all of the possibilities of where our Father can take each one of us as His kingdom family into life for making a divine difference as He moves our hearts individually!!!
For each person, there are lots of possibilities and sorting thru them to find our Father’s heart is important for divine life!!! It happens when we seek Him in prayer:
Pray to God as Psalm 20:4 says: “May you (God) give me the desires (God’s desires) of my heart and make all your (God’s) plans succeed”. Another prayer that I have found very helpful when overwhelmed is:
Sometimes I find it hard to manage my time well. There is so much to do and that can be done! Please help me to prioritize my daily activities and finances to align with your will, your plan, your purpose, and to do what is most important as well as the little mundane tasks that must be done. Help me to know when to say “no” to projects and requests that come along that would overwhelm me or take away from what you want me to do. Please help me to always love and care for those lives you have entrusted to my care and circle of influence. In Jesus name I pray, amen.”
The best thing we can do in life is to seek His wisdom in weighing the amount of time and resources we have to devote to each area of ministry He asks us to step into and for wisdom in determining the right timing for each step we take. God doesn’t show us the whole road at once, so we must always step out with a submissive attitude to His desire to have us continue our direction, redirect our goals, postpone them or stop them all together. James 4:13-17 says “Now listen, you who say “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money. Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, if it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast and brag. All such boasting is evil. Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.” Bearing these verses in mind, unless God makes changes, I step out with the light that has been given to me thus far to run the section of road God has made visible to me.
Given all of these things to think about each day, do you feel overwhelmed? Do you feel like you need a cape and a large “S” on your chest to be a supernatural “Superwoman” or “Superman?”
I confess to that and the truth is that we do need supernatural strength and let me encourage you again that God is the supernatural strength that we need to run the road He has mapped out for you and I personally. Philippians 4:13 says “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.” This is true no matter where the road of God’s purpose may take us and no matter what the circumstances. It is important to let God give us the heart desire and grace to minister where He leads (Philippians 2:13) and not take an attitude of “legalism”, telling ourself we have to meet certain standards to earn God’s acceptance. This is a lie of Satan. If we believe it, we will wear ourself out by running too much and too fast and for unnecessary reasons. Because of what Christ did on the cross for us, we are deeply loved, completely forgiven and totally accepted by God. He tells us in Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” God will lead us at the proper pace and in proper balance if we listen to Him. “It is God who works in us to will and act according to His purpose.” (Philippians 2:13)
Living the Christian life is all about Father’s grace to us – apart from Him, we can do nothing divinely!!! With Jesus – it’s the supernatural divine life that just makes ya smile!!! 🙂 I’m a gal seeking His supernatural heart for me today with you, dear ones!!! Father tells us:
“For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on Me and come and pray to Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.”
Stay close in heart to Jesus!!! Jesus will bring the divine life to us as this song says here!!! 🙂 WOOOHOOO!!! IT’S GONNA BE EXCITING, IT’S GONNA BE FUN!!! IT’S GONNA BE DIVINE AND AN ETERNAL DIFFERENCE MAKER!!! POWER ON!!! YEP – YA GOT JESUS!!!
