The Bible says that God sets a sense of eternal purpose in the hearts of men and women (Ecclesiastes 3:11 Amp).  There is something in your heart that is drawing you to a more fulfilling experience of God.  The purpose and destiny God has placed within you causes you to rise up from the ashes of failure.  He has destined you to find strength in the midst of weakness, peace in the midst of confusion and hope in the midst of despair.

That destiny will never die.  It is alive within you, always seeking its full expression.  Jesus came to save you from an unfulfilled destiny.  God gave you His Word (the Bible) to clarify His destiny for you.  He gave you His Spirit to empower you and keep destiny alive within you.  He gives you other believers to join forces with.

God has a plan for your life.  That plan is alive and well.  You may have been delayed in it, but the delay is not your destiny.  I pray for you that in 2018 you experience a new level of relationship with Jesus, that you hunger for His Word, that the Spirit of God fills you to the full and that you find right relationships with other believers.

He is ALIVE!  And in Him you are, too!

Blessings for 2018

In our region of the country two great college football teams are squaring off this week to see who will be declared College Football Champions of 2017.  Both teams are well coached and loaded with talented and gifted athletes.  Both teams feel they are destined to win the crown.

The winning team will be the team that best deals with adversity, obstacles and possibly their own mistakes.  I can’t resist drawing a spiritual analogy here.  You are destined to be a winner!  God has given you gifts and talents probably beyond what you recognize.  If you are a Christian, God has made you more than a conqueror! (Romans 8:37)  You are His champion!

Like these two teams that are about to play you too will have to overcome adversity, obstacles and your own mistakes.  The key is embracing God’s promise to you in Philippians 4:13:  you can do all things through Christ who gives you strength!

Embrace your God in 2018!  Embrace your destiny!  Walk like a champion.  You are an overcomer!

I encourage you to celebrate your victories of 2017.  And I am believing with you for new levels of breakthrough in this upcoming year.

In the book of II Samuel, chapter 5, after having just been anointed king, David found himself surrounded by his enemies.  In response to the pressure, David got alone with God to strengthen himself (v. 17).  He asked advice from the Lord regarding his situation and God told him to move forward against his enemies.  With the Lord’s help David broke through his enemies position and gained the victory.  In the Hebrew language he called God the Master of Breakthroughs.

As you stand at the threshold of 2018 make time to get alone with God.  As David did, ask God for advice, direction, and strength.  As this year begins to unfold may you, too, discover the Lord your God as the Master of Breakthroughs!

Blessings & Happy New Year!

So what is it about Christmas that makes it merry?  Well, there are different perspectives on that.  For instance, consider the world’s perspective as currently seen in TV commercials.  Happiness and joy is waking up Christmas morning to that shiny new dream car!  If it’s not a car, then it’s the perfect piece of jewelry or the house perfectly decorated.  I could go on and on, but you have probably seen the ads too.

Let’s consider another perspective of happiness and joy.  The Bible says that Jesus brings light to people living in darkness (Isaiah 9:2, Matthew 4:16).  This refers to spiritual darkness that causes emptiness and hopelessness.

Jesus brings light that fills up that empty place and ignites hope in the heart.  What could possibly cause more joy than that?  Do you see His Light?  He is there for you.  If there is any darkness around you or within you, ask Him to come into your heart and fill you with His Joy and Light!

Merry Christmas!
