God is Doing a New Thing!

There are many people who think that God has stopped moving in their midst; they think that God stopped moving a long time ago. But that’s not true!!! It’s because they don’t have their attention on what God is doing today. He said,” I will do a new thing.”

The fundamental principles of divine activity are changeless, but the outward shape of that activity alters with the changing needs of Gods people. We are meant to reflect on the past with gratitude and stimulated faith but not to allow it to stereotype our expectations from God.

God is doing a New Thing!! To be able to see what God is doing we need to follow the instructions of these verses: Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. The wild animals honor me, the jackals and the owls, because I provide water in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to my people, my chosen, the people I formed for myself that they may proclaim my praise." – Isaiah 43:18-21.

Don’t live in the past! At times we can’t see the new things that God is doing because we are living in the “good old days”. blinded by the past. It’s ok to remember the good things but do not camp there it’s time to move on.

DON'T BE AFRAID.

It is amazing how much the Bible has to say on this subject. Joshua 1:6-7 says, “Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their forefathers to give them. Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go,” Joshua 1:9 says, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” There is a familiar passage in Psalm 27:1-3. “The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid? When evil men advance against me to devour my flesh, when my enemies and my foes attack me, they will stumble and fall. Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then will I be confident.” II Timothy 1:7 says, “For God did not give us a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.” I John 4:18 says, “Perfect love drives out fear.”

Love Will Conquer

God knows us and He loves us as we are. He knows what we are capable of on our own, and He knows what we can do in his power. God knows all of this... even when our own hearts tell us that we fall short and our enemy whispers to us that God wouldn’t possibly want to love us as we witness racism around the world. God is greater than our hearts. God chooses to lavish His deep and overflowing love on us.

This love overflows from God’s heart to our hearts, and it should then overflow into love for those around us. These are difficult times and just holding up a Bible in front of a church speaks nothing, but love will conquer.

Fruitfulness

Perhaps the greatest impediment to fruitfulness is that we are notoriously conditioned to be consumers. It's easy to take for granted just how much we are habituated to consume and how that affects our ability to be fruitful. Consumption, of course, is a normal part of life. We need food, clothing, housing, and many other necessities. What challenges fruitfulness, however, is a preoccupation with consumption that outpaces the corresponding role we are to play as producers. Pray and implement your vision to be fruitful. We got this!

Don't Quit

As we give ourselves to God, he will use us in greater ways than we could ever imagine. We simply need to be willing to continue to do the work God has called us to do and not quit. God can do nothing through us when we quit, but nothing is impossible when we yield to his spirit

God Will Not Let You Drown


Exercise your faith and just do it, and move forward with God. Get out of your comfort zone and let God do something great through you, that you cannot do on your own. Believe that when you step out on the water it will hold you up because God will not let you drown.

Through The Eyes of Prayer


When we see through the eyes of prayer it influences our relationship with time. We are all too busy. Crowded schedules and multi-marked calendars rob us of life's vitality. As one writer has said, "Hurry is not of the devil! It is the devil." From real prayer we gain the proper perspective to see time not as something to be endured or rushed through. Every moment becomes, a moment to be seized, an adventure to be lived, a meaning to be found, and a joy to behold. In prayer we slow down enough to enjoy!
