By Way of Remembrance

Tuesday, September 15, 2009

Greetings all! I pray that your heart is alert and your mind is receptive to this word.
We all have been in a place where we can't seem to let go of the things that went wrong in our lives. Someone maybe feeling that way right now. And I just want to encourage you today by saying to lean not on your own understanding. Trust and believe that God will see you through. Be of good courage and lean on Him. He's a way maker. I may not be where I want to be in life but I thank God that I'm not where I used to be. And I'm so grateful for all he has kept me from, the closed doors, unseen accidents, and the list goes on.

You may be challenged with your health, weight, etc but I can assure you-if you just trust God and have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will see so many obstacles removed from your life. Perhaps you may have fallen off the bandwagon with your team, you slacked on your work out plan, you're not seeing ultimate results because of the lack of discipline...well that was then (even if it was an hr ago) and this is now. The mere fact that you're reading this is evidence that God has given you an opportunity to change and walk in the right direction. ITS NOT OVER UNTIL GOD SAYS ITS OVER!

God Bless you!!!!


TODAY'S SCRIPTURE
"I think it right, as long as I am in this tabernacle (tent, body), to stir you up by way of remembrance"
(II Peter 1:13, AMP)

TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria
Do you know that when we dwell on the wrong things, it affects our moods? We get down, discouraged, and lose our hope. Some people today don't have the joy and the enthusiasm God wants them to have because they are constantly dwelling on negative things.

But if we want to be in the position to take hold of all that God has in store for us, we have to stir ourselves up by changing our thinking. Instead of dwelling on and remembering all the bad things that have happened in life, you have to remember all the good things God has done for you. Every time you give God praise, every time you sing a song of victory, you are acknowledging and remembering His goodness. You are causing your mind to focus on what He's done for you. And, I'm convinced one reason the scripture tells us to bless the Lord at all times is because you can't praise and complain at the same time!

I encourage you today, stay proactive. Don't become passive in your thought life. Don't let your guard down. Keep stirring yourself up by remembering His faithfulness and watch what He will do on your behalf!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY
"Father in heaven, today I choose to keep my mind focused on Your goodness. Thank You for Your grace, mercy, and loving-kindness. Thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus so that I can live in victory. I bless and praise You today. In Jesus' Name. Amen."
