"Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you...." - 2 Timothy 1:6
God didn't save and deliver you so you could preserve His gift in a sealed jar and live life as usual.
It's time for you to go deep once again. It's time for you to put yourself out, to be brave, courageous and vulnerable, and to let down your nets! Let down your guards! Let down your pride! Let down your vanity! Lay it all down. Be encouraged! The harvest is ripe and ready. All you must do is heed the voice of the Master! What is He telling you to do today, right here and right now?
Look at those things over which you have lost your vision. Ask Him to bring resurrection life back into those dead places and renew your vision for your own DESTINY.
"There were many bones in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry. And the Lord said unto me, 'prophesy upon these bones and say unto them, Behold I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live.'" - Ezekiel 37: 2,4,5
We as believers need to press into God; pray and begin to believe God for a fresh wind of prophetic revelation that will impact faith and vision.
Today I ask God for new passion, new fire, and the gift of Holy hunger.
The way I loose the Spirit of God into my life is through my words -- through my right speaking.
Because God is with me the battle I am in will soon become a meal to me, an experience that will nourish and build me up spiritually.
To live in His Presence consistently, you must expose and expel your rebellious tendencies. When something interferes with your plans or desires, you tend to resent the interference. Try to become aware of each resentment, however petty it may seem. Don’t push those unpleasant feelings down; instead, let them come to the surface where you can deal with them. Ask the Holy Spirit to increase your awareness of resentful feelings. Bring them boldly into the Light of His Presence, so that He can free you from them.
The best response to losses or thwarted hopes is praise. Remember that all good things—your possessions, your family and friends, your health and abilities, your time—are gifts from Him. Instead of feeling entitled to all these blessings, respond to them with gratitude. Be prepared to let go of anything He takes from you, but never let go of His hand!
"Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting." - Psalm 139:23–24
"Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time." - 1 Peter 5:6
