God has not stopped moving.

 
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." (Isaiah 43:19)

The fundamental principles of divine activity are changeless, but the outward shape of that activity alters with the changing needs of God's people. We are meant to reflect on the past with gratitude and stimulated faith, but not 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 in His Word.

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 okay to remember the good things, but do not camp there; it's time to move on.

Getting to Where God Wants You to Be

There are very few shortcuts to get to where God wants you to be. You have to go through some things to get to where God wants you to be. When you try to take the shortcut, you are prone to miss some lessons that will be beneficial to you down the road. Maybe during the conversation in the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus was asking God: “Is there a shortcut to what I have to go through?” But God was saying, no you have to go through betrayal, denial, crucifixion – you’ve got to go through it to get new life.

God is Doing a New Thing

We must keep our minds and hearts open to what God is doing and what He wants to do in our midst. Even in the wilderness he will make a way where it seems impossible and impassable. Remember He has said in HIS Word I will do a new thing. Let Him do a new thing in your in your heart, home, marriage, job, church, school, Community. Let's allow Him to refine us in the desert (fire) that we may show forth His praise, and tell others it’s ok He is doing and will do a new thing. Yes he has done great things in my life. He is doing great things now, but hold on to your hats, He still has more in store.

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
