Claim What Is Already Yours (Devotion)

There is life and death in the power of the tongue👅
This is why it is so important to SPEAK 🗯 what God has promised you💬
Claim what is already yours in the heavenly kingdom👆
Speak the promises of God through faith [God’s warranty of what is ‘sure to come’] and perseverance [unwavering and steadfastness], know he who promised surely cannot lie! 👏
💥It’s time for Abba’s children to claim the peace that is not of the world, the healing, development of the gifts of the Spirit, loved one’s salvation, the promotion, the vision, *enter promise here*💥

A harvest is coming!

Plant those seeds and let the river of living water bring the growth!!!

Even If You Stumble

God loves when we follow the plan he has for us, especially since he knows what’s perfect. He loves when we earnestly seek to do his will. He “delights” in our every step. He is well pleased.

There have been times where I have had to make a BIG decision. I prayed and got impatient, later realizing I had made a mistake. I still thought that it was God’s will. However, later I realized I had made a mistake that caused me to stumble. I did not wait long enough for him to bring clarity. Yet we see, that even when we stumble there is abundant grace and mercy. He is ready and willing to lift us up when we stumble.

Do you remember when you tried to ride a bike for the first time? Your parents let you try without training wheels? If you were like me, you ate the gravel. I mean, I stumbled hard. I was a bloody, bruised, beat up, wanted to give up kind of mess. Just as my earthly Father saw what had happened and helped me up, God will lift you up when you stumble. He is much better than your earthly father. He is your cheerleader. He was delighted you wanted to please him! He lifts you and says, here my child try this.

God sees the desire in your heart to do his will and live out his plan for your life and that pleases him. He is delighted you a pursuing to be obedient. Even if you stumble, he is there to lift you up. He is proud of you! So dust the gravel off and keep riding.

Soaking In His Peace In A Quiet Place (Even though life is so noisy)

SOF_Psalm-119-114-web

Your quiet place.

No children, no dogs, no spouse, no distractions.

What does this look like to you?

Is it your closest? Bathroom? A nature trail? Did you have one once and now it has been taken over?

We all NEED a quiet place. EVEN JESUS DID!

Jesusquotequiet

Our quiet place is essential. It is where we can speak to God aloud and have him speak to us WITHOUT interruptions. Where you can hear him clearly and you can speak to him about the most inner parts of your heart and mind. Your quiet place should be somewhere where he has your full attention. A place where we can renew our mind in the word and spend time worshiping our creator, Abba, Alpha and Omega, our lifeline.

Many of us have a lot of commitments that keep us busy and we claim we don’t have time or we can’t find a quiet place.

If you are schedule is too busy, have you thought of waking up earlier or canceling the 2 hour Netflix binge? Or if your job is taking up the time you are spending with God, do you think it is time to pray for a new job opportunity? I know for a fact that when work was on the throne of my heart instead of God and I felt like I had nowhere to turn but took a leap of faith, God provided for me 2 new jobs that I fell in love with. He is faithful.  I can assure you that you are TOO busy if you are TOO busy to spend time with God. There are ways around it, just ask him.

When it comes to an actually quiet place, being married to a man who is in the military and having 2 dogs that are 6 months old can be really challenging. I am sure this is challenging for many of us who have families. The reading nook/war room I used to have where I would go to now has becomes the jungle gym for my puppies. But after not having the quality time with God that I wanted and so desperately needed I cried out upon God for help. WHERE is this place for me now? It became the bathroom for a while, then the trails, and now it has been not feeling guilty for putting my puppies in their cages for a while when I spend time with God.
What I really was depriving was not only myself, but my family. When I wasn’t able to spend the time with God that I needed (because I didn’t know where), I became moody and my thoughts began to become worldly.

If you are being challenged by busyness or don’t know where to go to spend time with God, simply ask him what can change. I know that I didn’t know what to do. I felt stuck. But that was just the enemy slipping in and trying to take away the time I need with God. Nothing is more important than your relationship with God. You can say it all day long, but until you put it into action is when the real fruit bearing begins.
