The New, The Overflow

Luke 5:37-38 “And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. For the new wine would burst the wineskins, spilling the wine and ruining the skins. New wine must be stored in new wineskins.”

Get excited because God is taking away ‘The Old’ in order to establish ‘The New’. God is on your side and God is all that you need. For someone today, God Himself is giving you a new name. The Lord God is giving you a new name. Read the rest of this entry

Bring-It-On!

Josh.21:45 Not a single one of all the good promises the Lord had given to the family of Israel was left unfulfilled; everything he had spoken came true.

 

Yesterday, we learned that Hebron is a place where we relate with people, not on the basis of what they do for us but, in recognition of God’s work in bringing us together. The place of Hebron is the place of the New-Streams. Yesterday, we concluded by saying we must trash the “me, myself, and I” mindset. The “I just want to pay school fees and pay rent” way of thinking. How can you just exist to pay school fees, pay rent, and die? Read the rest of this entry

Hebron

Joshua 14:12 “So give me the hill country that the Lord promised me…” (emphasis added)

 

You can be as strong as you are at eighty-five as you are at forty, do you receive that promise? Please read Joshua 14:6-12. When God has a promise for you, what will happen to that promise is up to you, you must decide really. God said to Caleb through Moses, “Hebron is yours – take it”. The word Hebron is from the Hebrew word spelled “Chevron” and it is derived from Hebrew words: “chevar “(meaning to unite, to join); “chever” (association), “chaver” (companion). Hebron was previously called Kiriath-arba. Arba is one of the descendants of the Amorites [the giants] and he was a great hero of the descendants of Anak [Joshua 14:15]. Read the rest of this entry

Let it go!

Ps. 37:8 (GW, emphasis added)Let go of anger, and leave your rage behind. Do not be preoccupied. It only leads to evil.”

 

The word resentment is from the root word ‘re-sentio’ and it means ‘to cut again’. So, when you repeat or rehearse the hurtful words to yourself, you are cutting yourself again. The person has said what he or she said, and they have moved on. But you are resenting them, you are rehearsing it, Read the rest of this entry

Let go!

Jer. 30:17 (NIV) “But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’ declares the Lord…”

 

Three main barriers can hinder the flow of New-Streams in our lives. The first one we looked at is worry. The second barrier we need to let go of is Wounds. Perhaps you have been lied to, or disappointed, or perhaps someone cheated you. Maybe it was even a brother [someone that you trusted] Read the rest of this entry

Just Don’t

Matt.6:25 “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing?”

 

The freer the flow of New-Streams in our lives, the easier the race of life becomes. Three main barriers can hinder the flow of New-Streams in our lives. They are three “Ws”; this should also help us remember them easily. Read the rest of this entry

Pathway

2 Tim. 4:7 (NIV) “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”

 

We will kick off today’s devotional with the final thought from yesterday, which is, the race of life is not a competitive event to see who comes first, but an endurance run to see who finishes well. 2 Tim. 4:7 (VOICE)…I have stayed on course and finished the race…” Read the rest of this entry

All Sufficient

Philip.2:9 “Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,  in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord…”

 

Every knee bows to Jesus! Your God is stronger than their god. There is no reason to be afraid. Say to yourself, ‘calm down, there is no reason to be afraid.’ The second reason why you should not be afraid or worry is, God is with us. Our God is not only stronger, But He is also with us.

Your King

Isa.7:8-9 “for Syria is no stronger than its capital, Damascus, and Damascus is no stronger than its king, Rezin…Israel is no stronger than its capital, Samaria, and Samaria is no stronger than its king, Pekah son of Remaliah.”

 

No city, no nation is stronger than its stronghold. The capital is the stronghold. The strong hold is the strongest part of the nation. God is saying, Syria is no stronger than Damascus and guess what. No stronghold is stronger than the leader, than their king. Read the rest of this entry

In Him

Ex.14:15-16 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the people to get moving! Pick up your staff and raise your hand over the sea. Divide the water so the Israelites can walk through the middle of the sea on dry ground.

 

Isa.7:2&4The news had come to the royal court of Judah: “Syria is allied with Israel against us!” So the hearts of the king and his people trembled with fear… Tell him to stop worrying…” God told Ahaz to stay calm before telling him how He was going to solve the problem. Read the rest of this entry
