Philippians 4
Ephesians 4:20-21


As this new calendar year begins, I want us all to take the time to stop, and meditate on the goodness of the Lord.  There were so many things I wanted to touch on, but Holy Spirit led me to a familiar chapter in the Bible that encompasses them all.  In this New Year we will experience obstacles and opposition, but know IT IS WELL!!!  Father has given us so much, and all He asks is that we love wholeheartedly, be selfless, and most importantly TRUST HIM.  We must remember to be thankful, and have the patience and faith to know that G_D is in control of every situation, and He has given us the power and dominion that we need.  Philippians 4 is a powerful passage, and it brings so much knowledge and inspiration. Verse 6 reminds us to not be anxious. One of the worst things we can do is rush a blessing that we are not spiritually or mentally mature for. When the time is right, it shall be.  There is no need trying to rush or worry to make it happen sooner, when it is already going to happen.  Verse 11 says be content.  People may misconstrue this as not having the desire to do better, or as an excuse to be lazy, but Holy Spirit wants us to rest easy, and have peace, regardless of the situation.  We must learn to be thankful and give thanks, even during what we thing is a bad time.  Only then can we appreciate the goodness of being elevated with Holy Spirit.  Verse 13 gives us assurance and reminds us to never give up because with Christ we can accomplish anything we set our hearts and minds to do.  Verse 19 also reminds us along with verse 13, that G_D, Jehovah Jirah is our ultimate provider, and will supply everything we need.  It gives me joy to know that Father loves us enough to take care of us, even in our moments of despair or unworthiness.  HE STILL CARES!!!  As I close, I want to share with you something I pray with every prayer, and it comes from Ephesians 4:20-21.  It gives me the assurance in knowing that despite how I feel or what words cannot express, G_D knows my heart, and will do more than I could ever imagine. 
“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end.  Amen”

Be blessed! Be a blessing!  I love you all!  Shalom!
