Do not Remember the Former Things

Do not Remember the Former Things

“Do not remember the former things, Nor consider the things of old” (Isaiah 43:18 NKJV).

How challenging it is not to remember the former things, nor consider the things of old! The word remember means to recall it as if to make it active. The old helped us to be where we are today, but cannot be the present reality.

We acknowledge the negative we shouldn’t recall, but not the positive. It is the past successes we must remember and appreciate. It increases our faith for today. What worked one way then will not work the same way now. This is true in relationships as well. We relate to everyone celebrating their uniqueness. When making choices, we need to take captive old mind sets and welcome the thoughts the mind of Christ has for us.  

Fear of the unknown can hinder productivity and growth and keep us in the past. Discouragement, because of past failures, freezes our steps. As we yield to Him, God continues the healing process and brings new life in all He does in and through us. It is a new day in the Lord! We let go of the old and welcome the new God has for us. He leads us by His grace, from glory to glory!

God’s Will be Done

God’s Will be Done

 “Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert” (Isaiah 43:19 NKJV).

When our heart is for God’s will to be done, His Kingdom to come, we can trust He will bring forth what He has for us and make it clear. We will not miss it. He will make sure of it.

We can expect our God to move mightily in our lives at any moment. God bypasses our humanity to manifest His glory: who He is and what only He can do. Men’s predictions on what God will do can only come short of the reality of His majestic plans. His perfect timing and ways will wow humanity. How great is our God!

When it’s time, God makes a way where there is none, even through the wilderness. His provisions are supernatural and keep us content in Him while expecting His unprecedented move. God does not let us know all His plans to keep our doubts and insecurities out of His way.

We can trust God with our future because He holds us in His caring, loving, able hands. Amid the trials, spiritual warfare, and the chaos in the world, Our Heavenly Father is working. Let’s tune out all the fear base voices and tune in to the faith ones. Stand by faith and watch His glorious plan unfold,   from glory to glory!  

Does it Fit?

Does it Fit?

“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10 KJV).

The Greek word for “hath before ordained” in this scripture is proetoimazō, meaning “to fit up in advance.” God has prepared specific works for us to walk in. They will fit who we are in Him perfectly and line up with his best for our lives. There is both excitement and restlessness in realizing the Lord stretches us to fit the places we are about to occupy. 

We can relate to what it feels like to break into new shoes. At first, they’re not comfortable and we get sore spots. It takes time to get used to walking in them, and during that period, we might miss the old shoes and consider using them again. When that period is over, the new shoes fit perfectly, like they were tailor made for us. As God’s workmanship, we can trust what He sees fit.

If you are in a transition, focus on the new by faith, relying on God to bring it to pass. Spend time in His Word and worship, resting in Him. Be quick to let go of what no longer fits or to adjust to new ways to fit into it. Praise God ahead of time for what He has for you. God often must shift situations and relationships to help us step into the new. Let’s see the process as a glorious transformation,  from glory to glory!  

Seek First the Kingdom of God

Seek First the Kingdom of God

“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you,” (Matthew 6:33 NKJV).

The Kingdom of God is the realm in which God’s will reigns. As we seek spiritual food, through reading the Bible and prayer, we seek the Kingdom of God. We learn His will and the Spirit of God helps us surrender to His leadership.

Often, we seek worldly solutions for our needs, yet the key lies in spiritual sustenance. Prioritizing spiritual growth over physical or emotional desires allows us to experience God’s comprehensive provision. Our greatest need is Him. The key is to seek His righteousness, not ours.

We are in right standing with God because of what Jesus Christ has done for us on the cross. The more we face our unworthiness, the more we question whether we deserve for Him to meet our needs. Let’s embrace our position in Christ and trust in His provisions, from glory to glory.

Seek God First!

Seek God First!

“My voice You shall hear in the morning, O Lord; In the morning I will direct it to You, And I will look up.” (Psalm 5:3 NKV)

When we set out to seek God early thing in the morning, we meet distractions and disruptions. As we press through in our pursuit, it becomes second nature, even amid the hindrances. The benefits we reap from our endeavor help us stay on course.

When our focus is to seek God first, it affects everything else. It magnifies God, reminds us of His presence, makes the rest of our day flow in peace, and facilitates the practice of hearing from Him. It welcomes His will to be done His way, empowers us to confront whatever may come our way. 

  • Acknowledge God’s presence as soon as you are awake.
  • Address Him sincerely, sharing your burdens, requests, and heart to Him.
  • Ask Him for His wisdom and guidance.

God delights in our pursuit of His presence and hears our heart’s cry. Let’s express our love and gratitude to Him for all He is, all He has done, and all He will do in your lives. Rejoice forevermore, for His love is everlasting and His faithfulness unending. Seek Him first, and all else will flow, from glory to glory!
