Dear Tabernacle Family,
How big is Your God? Take a moment and answer that question. Think about the plans you have for your life; the dreams and goals you have set for yourself; maybe things that you are hoping to accomplish and are already working towards. Now answer this question. Is God in the center of them? Have you consulted with Him and asked His advice? If the answer is no then stop, check with Him, seek His counsel through prayer. If the answer is yes, then continue to give Him glory, honor and praise while you are praying and waiting. Thank Him for being the Lord of your life. Delight in Him as you wait for the desires of your heart to be fulfilled. Thank Him that His Word never returns void, that His promises are yes and amen.
Believe His Word. You can have all that God says you can when your life is centered on Him, when you give Him full rights to your life. There is no need to live in disappointment, fear or insecurity. John 8:36 - "If the Son has made you free you are free indeed!" Hebrews 10:35 - "Don’t cast away your confidence." Realize your dream will be tested but remember God offers reassurance. You’re not in this alone! Replace any fear you might have with faith and recognize the great reward that awaits you when you are fulfilling your God-given dream. Most of all don’t lose heart. People who keep their eyes on the prize get to see what others cannot see. 2 Corinthians 4:18 - "Don’t look at the things that are seen for the things that are seen are subject to change the things that are unseen are eternal." God is a big God and His love is always toward you and not away from you.
Keep your Eye On The Prize,
Pastor Jo Ann
(CEV) "Let your faith be like a shield, and you will be able to stop all the flaming arrows of the evil one."
In order to win the spiritual battle involving the realization of our God-given dreams we will have to believe what we cannot see.
