Word of the Lord Jan. 14, 19

2019 will be a glorious time for My people if they guard their hearts with all diligence.  Establish a watch over your lives and fight the good fight.  This is a year in which multiple blessings are available, so position yourselves to receive them.  Extraordinary times are before you, so do not lose heart.  Renew your faith and begin again!
Make a thorough examination of yourself and circumstances to understand why you do what you do.  When you get to the bottom of your motivations, you will be able to separate right from wrong.  You will be able to see whether or not your actions are consistent with the truth and My Word, says the Lord.  Do not be afraid to look.
Psalm 139:23-24  Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
Hold on because things are going to change as you stay focused on what God is revealing to you. Doug Addison

January 14, 2019. You are exactly where you should be. It feels like decline, but it isn’t. Instead it is progress. You are looking through natural eyes. I want you to look through supernatural, spiritual eyes. When you do, you will see from My perspective. Your reaction will be different when you look and see from My perspective. It will be peaceful, and kind. There will be fruit of the Spirit. All the fruit will be on exhibit.

Galatians 5:22-23 (MSG) “But what happens when we live God’s way? He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an orchard-things like affection for others, exuberance about life, serenity. We develop a willingness to stick with things, a sense of compassion in the heart, and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates things and people. We find ourselves involved in loyal commitments, not needing to force our way in life, able to marshal and direct our energies wisely. Legalism is helpless in bringing this about; it only gets in the way.”  Bev Robinson

January 14, 2018. You think that because you are dealing with a bothersome person, you want them to change and modify their behavior. Have you ever been able to alter the behavior of another? Probably a child’s conduct is the only one where that works and even that comes with a struggle. What you can change is your mindset to one of grace and understanding. You ask how long must that continue? I say it will last as long as it called today!
Colossians 3:12-13 (NLT) “Since God chose you to be the holy people He loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.”  Kevin Robinson
January 14, 2019. There are some things that you are making too hard. This particular issue keeps rolling around in your mind. Simplicity comes by stepping out and putting some kind of action with it. You are overthinking the situation – simply begin. It will not be as hard or laborious as you think. Inaction has brought you to a halt. Action will cause this situation to flourish. I will bring to your mind what to do first, so do it!
James 4:17 (NIV) “If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.”  Robin Robinson Bohlin
