Ephesians 3:20 Now to Him who is able to (carry out His purpose and ) do superabundantly more than we dare ask or think (infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes or dreams) according to His power that is at work within us…….
Isaiah 43:18,19 Do not remember the former things, or ponder the things of the past. Listen carefully, I am about to do a new thing, now it will spring forth, will you not be aware of it……
We all know that times have been tough. For my family they have been trying times. The Lord has definitely been with us, that I must add. There is something about the Lord’s testing fire. It hurts but not enough to doubt His presence, love and total commitment to us. I don’t know how He does it, but through it all, we continually have a sense of Him going through with us. Our confidence is constantly kindled as we keep moving along. In His fire, nothing spoils. The good comes out better, and the bad understands they cannot go any further. That’s just how it works. We just feel a sense of well being despite the hard times.
Then suddenly I begin to sense a shift in seasons. How does that happen? I just have a deep knowing in my heart that the season is changing. As I kept musing, he dropped the phrase, “exceedingly abundantly above“. It was no longer a feeling but a word I could hold unto. Feelings are fleeting, going up and down with circumstances. However, a Word from the scriptures is lethal. It is a weapon of war fare. The enemy cannot withstand it and nothing can hold it back. It will accomplish itself because the One who spoke it is well able to perform it. Like Mary, I simply said to Him, let it be unto us according to Your word.
Then He gives my family, this time through my husband, Ike, the word ‘new‘. It is all adding up. Isaiah 43: 18- And I felt a sense of entering into something that would begin to unfold a completely new season of life for us.
Why do I share these things? Because God is constantly speaking to His people. He is not a respecter of persons. He has something for everyone. These promises are for as many as would believe. My promise may be different from yours, but they will come to pass no matter what season you are in, or how long it takes. We can all hold on and wait Him out. We can find some comfort in who God is and what He says to us.
I am already dancing in my new seasons. Please join my dance. We can dance ahead of manifestation, because we know He whom we have believed, He is able to bring to pass that which He has spoken to our hearts. Amen.
