The Exchange III

Isa.61:3 “To all who mourn in Zion, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, oil of joy instead of mourning, a garment of praise instead of the spirit of heaviness. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.” (NLT & NIV]

God is trading His beauty for our ashes and He is doing it in every area. We are going from barrenness to Fruitfulness, from sorrow to Joy, from bondage to Freedom, from loss to Recovery, from death to Life, from poverty to Wealth, and from shame to Honour. Read the rest of this entry

The Exchange II

Ps. 126:1-2 (KJV) “When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream. Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The Lord hath done great things for them.”

God is trading His beauty for our ashes and He is doing it in every area. God is giving us beauty for ashes, from sorrow to Joy. God is giving us His joy in the place of sorrow. Read the rest of this entry

The Exchange I

Job 42:5-6 “I had only heard about you before, but now I have seen you with my own eyes. I take back everything I said, and I sit in dust and ashes to show my repentance.”

Sometimes, because we cannot see very far, we tend to argue with God. We look at our lives and we question God’s heart and His goodness. Why did You not do this and why did You not answer that prayer. Read the rest of this entry

Set Time!

Rev. 10:6 “He swore an oath in the name of the one who lives forever and ever, who created the heavens and everything in them, the earth and everything in it, and the sea and everything in it. He said, “There will be no more delay”

Isa.61:1 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me…” (emphasis added). The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon you [say Amen]. The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord; sovereign means  God does not need permission from anyone to promote you and no one can query Him. Read the rest of this entry

Surplus

Isa. 35:6-7 “The lame will leap like a deer, and those who cannot speak will sing for joy! Springs will gush forth in the wilderness, and streams will water the wasteland. The parched ground will become a pool, and springs of water will satisfy the thirsty land…”

God is a God of abundance. Lack [poverty] is inconsistent with the nature of God. Check the Bible, every time God had to meet a need, He goes over and above even when it is not necessary. Read the rest of this entry

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

Speak Life

Eph.4:29 “…Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.”

 

We are still on the subject of learning to bask in encouragement. Hang on to that encouragement you get. Yesterday, I shared with you how I kept an encouraging note and it became a repeated source of encouragement for me. Read the rest of this entry

Going Through

Heb.4:15-16 “This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.

This Jesus that tells us not to stop calling had to go through this Himself. Please read Matt.26:36-46. Have you ever gotten to a point on a certain issue where you say to God, ‘if it is possible, let this be taken away’? Have you ever gotten to a point where you say to God, this is too hard for me? Jesus has been there. Read the rest of this entry

Causes III

Isa.57:18-19 “I have seen what they do, but I will heal them anyway! I will lead them. I will comfort those who mourn, bringing words of praise to their lips. May they have abundant peace, both near and far,” says the Lord, who heals them.

In the year 2017, projections based on statistics from infectious diseases showed that by the end of 2017, 20 million people would have died. Guess the number that would Read the rest of this entry

Quality Check

Isa.5: 3 Now, you people of Jerusalem and Judah, you judge between me and my vineyard. 4 What more could I have done for my vineyard that I have not already done? When I expected sweet grapes, why did my vineyard give me bitter grapes?” [with emphasis].

The fourth Marah I have been asked to address interestingly is The “Marah” of God. Can God have a Marah situation? Apparently, He can, and he shows us in His Word. Read the rest of this entry
