like the line between sea and sky
When there is no gap
between prayer and the answer
At other times a gap exists
like the healing process.
Can you believe during this gap?
It could affect your answer!
‘Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire,
when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.’
Mark 11:24 KJV
That wonderful change into Autumn signals change. Aren’t we blessed to have seasons. In fact life is made up of them.
Most people prefer the change from Spring to Summer. Not everyone welcomes the approach of winter.
You may be in an unwelcome time right now. Treat it as a season. Seasons do not last for ever. In winter we dig out extra warm clothes. Make extra provision for your spirit if you are treading through a cold valley. Spend extra time with the Lord. Search out His provisions. Last week we were reminded of the the ‘I am’ statements of the Lord. Look at the ‘I will’ statements and see what He will do for you at this time.
Heres one!. There are many. There is no circumstance not covered by His wonderful Word.
Jesus certainly knew who He was and those who heard Him understood exactly what He meant. If you love the Word you will be familiar with the ‘I AM’ statements of Jesus and have no problem believing Him. But the Bible is also littered with ‘you are’ labels. Are you as familiar with these and do you believe what Jesus says about you? Search them out for yourself. Rehearse them until they become an ‘I am’ reality.
Bird with a broken wing
dependant upon help
waiting to take to the skies again
Which are you right now?
Both need help from above
to be healed or kept airborne.
You may be able to assist
with the difficulties experienced
by the weaker
if only to delay your flight
until the bird can fly.
Then both are released to
reach the heights.
And as the sun sets
The day is done
Dreams sift the toxins of the day
Order is restored
And when the day breaks
Each day a gift from God
A blank canvas.
Wait on Him to decide how it should be filled.
Ps 32:8 (NLT)
The LORD says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life.
I will advise you and watch over you.
There’s a blue print for your life
It’s written in the Lamb’s book of life.
The pages were ordained before the beginning of time
Are you walking through the pages of your life
and fulfilling your destiny
Or falling short of the promises?
It depends which road you are on.
There is a high road and a low road.
God has done all He can to get you on the high road.
And a highway will be there;
it will be called the Way of Holiness;
It will be for those who walk on that Way.
When God says ‘good’ He means it is for your good.
Like ‘It is not good that man should be alone,’
does not mean it is evil,
It means it is not beneficial.
Likewise His chastisement.
He is not punitive
He is protective.
When we choose what is not good for us
He convicts by His Holy Spirit
His ways are best.
Are you a ‘make do and mend’ person?
Do you settle for second best?
You are not a ’second hand Rose’
Your Father ‘doesn’t have a business that is strictly second hand.’
Your Father owns EVERYTHING and is not stingy. He is a Giver!
He gave His only begotten Son so you may share in His inheritance.
He has given you a new name, a new song to sing,
a new hope, a new covenant, a new order to live by.
‘Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature:
old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2 Cor. 5:17
God’s Words are sharper
than a two edged sword.
They have the ability to ‘cut to the quick!’
His correction is by conviction
not condemnation or coercion.
They are given
Not to hurt but to heal.
They contain the power
to bring about transformation.
So what is He saying to you today?
Where there is hope there is faith.
Where there is faith there are miracles.
