Devotional//Word For Today

“All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize.”
1Co 9:25 NLT

ARE YOU BEING STRETCHED?

When you’re being stretched spiritually, your faith in God grows. When you’re being stretched mentally, your old ideas are challenged and replaced with new ones. When you’re being stretched relationally, selfishness dies and love grows. So, are you being stretched right now? God allows us to have stretching experiences that prepare us for the race He has called us to run in life—and every so often your soul will “hit the wall.” No amount of strength and no amount of pressing will move the problem. This is soul stretch! Often, these moments aren’t the real test; they are just warm-ups that prepare us for future challenges. They are points of reference designed to keep us from panicking when we’re in the midst of the real race. Remember that God never allows a person to run for Him, or with Him, who hasn’t been stretched in their thinking, their faith, and their ability to live and love. So when you face a problem that just won’t move, remember to take a deep breath and remind yourself that God is stretching you. It’s the stretching of the soul that enables us to face situations we think will kill us, but don’t—to endure times when we think we won’t make it, but do. Sooner or later we will all face difficult times and relationships, but they are just the deep knee bends of life. So when it feels like you’re being stretched to breaking point, don’t quit. See it for what it is—preparation for running and winning your God-assigned race in life.

Verses:

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. –James 1:2-4

One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple. –Psalm 27:4

Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. –James 1:12

Take time to pray for others. Who has the Lord placed on your heart for you to reach out to? Have you done so or are you making excuses? May the Lord bless you as you take heed to his obedience. Have a lovely night 🙂

Stay Connected With The Source

“It is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.”
Php 2:13 NIV

THIS YEAR RECOGNIZE YOUR CALLING

By recognizing and fulfilling your God-given assignment in life, you free yourself from a sense of failure and are able to stop worrying about what others think. Why? Because your self-worth no longer depends on people, but on God! However, you must do these three things: (1) Be honest about your gifts, and recognize your limitations. Don’t go through life as a stranger to yourself. Honestly assess your strengths and weaknesses; ask the hard questions and be willing to live with the answers, even if it means letting some things go. Michael Novak writes, “God knows what’s in us for He put it there. And He intends us to do something with it.” Each of us has been given a calling in life, and happiness belongs to those who find and fulfill that calling. (2) Allow God to work on you. Sometimes an amateur potter limits the potential of clay by seeing it only as a flowerpot. But a master potter sees much more—he or she knows what it can become. Watch them; they don’t merely impose a shape on it, they release the shape that’s already within. And that’s what God does with us. (3) Recognize your source. Fulfilling your life’s assignment begins with identifying the desires God has placed within you. “It is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.” Who’s at work within you? God! Where do your desires come from? God! Where do your abilities come from? God! So make knowing God and walking in step with Him be your highest priority this year.

Kayton Hosket Philippians 1:6 by kgdoodles on Etsy: Reflection:
1. Do you know your purpose in this life?
2. Have you asked God about his purpose for you?
3. Has he revealed it you? If so are you walking in the way he has made for you?
4. Are you afraid of your calling? If so have you prayed about it?
Happy Wednesday. I hope all of you are doing well. Thank you to everyone who has stopped by my blog. God bless you. As you take the time, to read this post, I would like for you all to reflect on all that God has done for you and to also answer the questions above in a journal, out loud or any way you can. Pray about it. God hears our requests for they are like an incense unto him. May God help us this hear to hear his voice clearly and may we be obedient to his voice.  “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” -John 10:27. Be Blessed and Encouraged.

Empty Me

Empty Me

Empty me is my outcry this morning. Anything that is not of you Lord rid out from me. More of you Jesus and less of myself. Less of my thoughts, bitterness, anger, and everything. Sometimes, you feel like your spiritual life has decreased. Have you ever felt a desire and a hunger for Jesus? Like you no longer want the things and materials of the world? They are not eternal but yet they still bring you happiness like shopping, drinking, going to the club and all other desires that the world desire. I tell you these things will make you happy momentarily. Choose Jesus & make him your Lord and Savior today. We should put our hope in God. Jesus loves you.

“The end of your rope is the beginning of God’s doorstep.” -Unknown
