This is the day that the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24 (NJKV). I’ve learned to embrace each new day with a praise on my lips because tomorrow is not promised to anyone. Treat others just as you would like to be treated. All things work together for your good. God is so intentional when it comes to His children and their purpose. He wants so much for you; He’s just waiting on you to get in proper alignment with the assignment. He said in Psalm 84:11 (HCSB), “For the Lord is a sun and shield. The Lord gives grace and glory; He does not withhold the good from those who live with integrity.”
The Lord will shower you with His amazing grace and His glory. He will not withhold anything from His children. His heart’s desire is to see you blessed. You did not choose God; He chose you. (see John 16:16). You may not know how special you are to God until He shows you a supernatural miracle. You’re about to walk into your divine purpose.
Revelation 21:4 (NIV) says, “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Welcome to your happiness. No more spiritual deaths, no more crying and no more pain. Everything you went through is in the past. You’re better now. You have better wisdom, better understanding, better insights, and better self-control. It was good for you to have been afflicted because you are much stronger now. Forget those things which are behind and press towards those things which are before you. (see Philippians 3:13).
John 15:1-5 (NCV) says, “I am the true vine; my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch of mine that does not produce fruit. And he trims and cleans every branch that produces fruit so that it will produce even more fruit. You are already clean because of the words I have spoken to you. Remain in me, and I will remain in you. A branch cannot produce fruit alone but must remain in the vine. In the same way, you cannot produce fruit alone but must remain in me. I am the vine, and you are the branches. If any remain in me and I remain in them, they produce much fruit. But without me they can do nothing.
Wow, what a powerful word this is! Want to know how to produce and be fruitful and multiply? John 15:1-5 is your answer to how to become fruitful and stay in that season of abundance. The Word of God is rich and pure and it cleanses us and gives us everything we need to stay connected to the vine so that we can produce much fruit. What a mighty God we serve! I just love how He sets his children up to be blessed.
Detox your mind and filter out all the negativity. If it is contrary to the Word of God let it go. You may have to walk away from some people, places and things but it will all be worth it after you have reached your final destination.
It’s time for you to activate your blessings. Create yourself a private space right where you are. It can be in an empty closet in the comfort of your home and began to spend time with God. Just take a few moments to think back on where you were and how far God has brought you. It is in these quiet moments when you can hear what the Father is speaking to you. He wants to share something very special with you. It doesn’t take hours for God to show up; it only takes a willing spirit and a sincere heart to surrender. The peace of God will come in and before you know it you will be immersed in the presence of God. Oh, what a good place to be in when your mind is racing and you are looking for an answer. Seek God first before you go to a friend, brother, mother or sister.
