“Yet if you devote your heart to him
    and stretch out your hands to him,
 if you put away the sin that is in your hand
    and allow no evil to dwell in your tent,
then, free of fault, you will lift up your face;
    you will stand firm and without fear.
You will surely forget your trouble,
    recalling it only as waters gone by.
Life will be brighter than noonday,
    and darkness will become like morning.
You will be secure, because there is hope;
    you will look about you and take your rest in safety.
You will lie down, with no one to make you afraid,
    and many will court your favor.

 

Job 11:13-19

As we enter this New Year, renew your covenant with God – a covenant of forgiveness, humility, simplicity, obedience, love. This is what we call a new beginning.

Like Job did, we need to come to the realization that life belongs to God. It does not belong to us. If life belonged to us, we could control it. We must live today as if it were our last day on earth. It is then that we will be sensitive to the voice of God in our heart.

God’s Spirit in our heart cries naturally Abba Father! This sense of fatherhood brings a natural basis for prayer because prayer is a relationship that exists between God and His children. Prayer is not yours – it is a relationship that is built. That is why we have to work on getting our heart in tune for prayer. To pray as God wants us to pray is the greatest achievement on earth. The life you live determines what you run your heart with. So, run your heart with the name Jesus – that is effective prayer.

Let God’s Word continue to run in your heart. Let His Word continue to run in your spirit. No matter what happens, no matter what comes, let nothing take you from His covenant. 

 

 

 

THE PILOT IN COMMAND

“Those who serve God with their heart are those who allow God to give birth to their heart’s desires. These are those who put God to where He really belongs: not in the luggage compartment, not in economy class, not in business class not in first class by in the cockpit !!! For them God IS THE PILOT IN COMMAND. Their heart is the cockpit where God dwells and files the flight plan: God decides the destination and the itinerary leading safely to that place at God’s appointed time.”

THE MOST PRECIOUS THING

“If we were to see things the way God does, we would see the immense value of godly character that comes from loving God and shunning evil. In fact, it is the most precious thing that we possess in God’s sight.”

GOD’S APPOINTMENT IN THE WILDERNESS

“Ask anyone and they will tell you that they long to hear from God, to have a personal encounter with Him, to know His will and direction for their life. But many of us fail to realize that often God gives us an appointment in the wilderness.”
