It’s a New Year and although our lives usually do not change drastically from Dec. 31st to Jan. 1st, it’s another year of God’s Favor, for us to experience life, like never before. Not with just houses, cars, and land, although the Lord didn’t say that we shouldn’t have those things, provided we don’t love our stuff more than we love Him. There’s so much more to life that the Lord has promised us and it’s time for us to live life in its fullness, with love, peace, and joy unspeakable. Our Supernatural blessings will ALWAYS outweigh our natural ones. The Lord said,
“I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test!
He says that He will prove it to us, so why wouldn’t we want it! Natural or material blessings are also from the Lord, but again, we just must be careful not to love our possessions more than our provider.
33 Seek the Kingdom of God[a] above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
As I’ve said before, we may not always get what we want, but the Lord will always give us what we need, exactly when we need it. As we look across social media, we see more and more people, who appear to have everything that they would ever want or need, and yet life is still not worth living.
We usually stop at Matthew 6, verse 33, but Jesus goes on to say…
34 “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.
Many times, we are so worried about “what might happen” tomorrow, that we forget to live today! Then, there are other times when we are so stuck in our yesterday, that we are not trusting the Lord with our tomorrow, especially when we are in a dry place or a wilderness season. I have spoken often about wilderness seasons, when the Lord has us in a place of challenges and uncertainty. It becomes even more difficult to live in our today, yet alone live each day to the fullness. To survive our periods of spiritual dryness; our droughts, we must have water and daily spiritual refreshing. We know that we cannot stay in a place without water, and we cannot live a full life without the Holy Spirit.
Often, I must remind myself that my task is simply to plant the seed, therefore, my message to you will not change in 2023. We must always take a quiet moment to listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying, we must have water to grow. He will tell us and show us how to Live Our Best Live Ever! It’s our choice …The Lord promises that,
20 Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.
We cannot do it without Him!
