Your Life Coach…

No Comments

Psalm 32:8 “I [the Lord] will INSTRUCT you and TEACH you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you.” [AMP]

What an enormous and powerful verse this is… God is personally coaching us in our life and He is the best coach ever! He not a coach who has us running laps for no reason or yells at us to make us feel terrible. He is a coach who will mentor and grow us into the plans He has for us. Our heavenly father will tutor us in the way we should go and he will keep His eye upon us continually. We have a coach who will never lose sight of us, even after graduation. A coach who is constantly concerned about us – how precious is that!

We have a coach who wants to counsel [guide, direct, advise, warn] us as we move forward in the purposes and plans of heaven. A coach who is molding our future into heavens eternal plans & purposes.

So, how do we connect with our personal coach and let him know we are ready for training? It’s as easy as personalizing this week’s scripture and speaking it out. The reality of who God is will change your life forever – put your name in the scripture and speak it out now…

The Lord my God will INSTRUCT [insert your name] and TEACH [insert your name] in the way that [insert your name] should go; The Lord will counsel [insert your name] with His eye upon [insert your name]. Today God I ask you to instruct me and teach me in the way that I should go; Today Lord counsel me and keep your eye upon me continually.”

Your Future & Hope…

No Comments

Jeremiah 29:11-14 “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a FUTURE AND A HOPE. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. I will be found by you,” says the Lord. “I will END your captivity and RESTORE your fortunes. I will GATHER you out of the nations where I sent you and will BRING you home again to your own land.” [NLT]

This verse responds to a question in all our hearts – “Why am I here?” Our heavenly father’s tells us He has a plan for us that will give each one of us a FUTURE AND A HOPE! We’re not inconsequential or unimportant but rather we are a vital part of God’s plan on this Earth.

God says that he knows the exact plans that He has for us. His plans will produce good and give us a FUTURE AND A HOPE. If we’re experiencing any degree of failure in our lives then this is not a part of the plan that God has for us. We must reconnect with what God has prepared for us and return to it to obtain a FUTURE AND A HOPE.

We are presently living in the days that this verse is speaking about. A day where if we pray, God will listen. If we look for Him wholeheartedly, we will find Him. We can walk in this promise everyday of our lives. This promise from God will produce a FUTURE AND A HOPE.

His promise concludes with four powerful acts…

1. He will END our captivity (from any form of oppression)
2. RESTORE our fortunes (anything lost will be bought back)
3. GATHER us out of nations (rescue us from where we feel foreign or alienated)
4. BRING us home again to our own land (a place of peace and familiarity with our heavenly Father)

Remember today that God’s plan for us is to have a FUTURE AND A HOPE; it is a plan for good!

Let Go & Let Go…

Psalm 37:5-6 “Open up before God, KEEP NOTHING BACK; he’ll do whatever needs to be done: He’ll validate your life in the clear light of day and stamp you with APPROVAL at high noon. [Message]

Each day we need to make a conscience decision to open up every area of our lives and be vulnerable before God. We must share with our father in heaven what we can’t share with anyone else. Disappointments, hurts, embarrassments and of course our celebrations. He wants us to KEEP NOTHING BACK from Him. Don’t hold back your emotions, thoughts, feelings, tears or joy. Instead let it loose and let God take a hold of every secret place you have.

When we open up, holding nothing back from Him then He promises three results…

  1. He’ll do whatever needs to be done
  2. He will validate us [support & make things right]
  3. He will make sure we’re seen as approved by every one. It will be done at high noon in the brightest part of the clearest day not in a secret hidden ceremony in the dark.

This is such a potent and powerful verse to walk in this week. KEEP NOTHING BACK from God from this day forward and release Him to let His APPROVAL shine through your life for all to see.

Run To Jesus…

No Comments

Rev 22:13 “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the FIRST AND the LAST.”[KJV]

Today’s scripture contains a very powerful key for us to hold in our spirit every day!

This scripture is from the book of Revelations and Jesus is speaking. As Jesus was in the beginning of your situation, He is also in your present. Jesus is going to stay put with you until you have accomplished the goal and received the reward. Jesus is not running away from you or your situation, He is intimately involved with you. Jesus is the Alpha and Omega, He is the beginning and the end and He is the FIRST AND LAST. He wants to be totally immersed in every area of your life!

Live life as excited about what you’re going through today, as you will be when you receive your promised reward. Be as expectant and excited today as you were on the first day you set out on your journey with Jesus.

It is vital to keep your faith, hope and energy focused towards the goal. Positioning Jesus in the very centre of your need through prayer, reading & applying His Word is essential to success in life. When you do this you’ll apprehend the prize of your high calling in Christ Jesus.

Remember Jesus is as much in the beginning of things as He is in the end – He is the FIRST AND LAST!

Go a Little Further…

No Comments

Matthew 26:39 “He (Jesus) went on A LITTLE FURTHER and bowed with his face to the ground, PRAYING, “My Father! If it is possible, let this cup of suffering be taken away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.” [NLT]

This is a great verse… This week, go A LITTLE FURTHER than you have gone before. Even when it may seem painful or the expected result may not appear to be the easiest. Why? To enable you to reach your victory exactly as Jesus did. Jesus had to accomplish the will of His Father so he went on A LITTLE FURTHER.

Often we can have feelings that we are at our limit or that we can’t go on any further. At these times, if we can summon up the obedience to move forward on God’s Word, we will step into our future with all it’s rewards. We often underestimate our strength to accomplish God’s will because we refuse to step out of our comfort zones. We want to dwell in a place of comfort then gripe and complain about nothing happening in our lives.

As you go A LITTLE FURTHER today remember to do exactly what Jesus did, He went on A LITTLE FURTHER then he stopped and PRAYED. PRAYER is the connection between the Father and us. It allows the plans of heaven to invade our world, causes confusion to cease and revives our spiritual strength.

Fulfilling God’s will in this season of your life is often as simple as just going A LITTLE FURTHER!!
