Get ready! Get ready! Get ready! Starting now, here come the blog posts about your Joy, your new-found Fearlessness and your Healing…my sharings, all designed to encourage you to get your glow on. I have declared myself the Lord’s Chief Evangelist of Joy…that’s what I’m all about. Spreading the Good News—to share the evangelion, inGreek, the announcement, the gospel. Declaring those things which God speaks through His Word or in my soul’s ear…the things I truly believe you should know. Sometimes you’ll already know them but perhaps you’re just waiting to be reminded.
Here we go. Stick with me now! Get ready, get ready, get ready! We’re going somewhere. Choose now to pack carefully. Carry with you all of your faith, confidence, courage, love, peace, joy and determination; letting go of the baggage you’ve been carrying around by instinct—your fears, doubts, disbelief, chaos, turmoil, confusion and uncertainty. In the victorious Christian life, I’ve discovered that there are some things you have to leave behind.
As we coast towards the end of the first month in 2011, it’s time to get ready for whatever God has for you this year. Accept the reality that He is calling you out of some things. Abraham (Genesis, chapter 12) was called away from Haran onto a new path God had chosen. God was saying: “Abraham, leave the comfortable and the familiar behind. Stretch out on faith and on your trust in Me.” That’s what 2011 may mean to you. Out of the old, into the new.
Today, I bask in a renewed awareness of the One who is the only source of our strength. Philippians 4:13 says: “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.” (New International Version)
Don’t you just love it when we gain fresh clarity of the real issues of life?! Know today that you have a strength, an unbelievable inner potency and vigor which will allow you to face anything…truly, anything that life throws at you.
“Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:19 (King James Version) Hallelujah!
I’m overwhelmed by His awesomeness. When God lets go, when He opens the floodgates of Heaven, when your new thing breaks forth, you can’t even stand up under the weight of His tremendous blessings. It’s coming! So…ready, set, GO!
