Good morning, firstly I thank God for allowing me to be on Earth to celebrate the 45th anniversary of my birth. I am happy to be surrounded by family and friends, but also bad that one very important person is not here in person to make sure this day is special. Ma, today I miss you more than ever and pray for your soul to be at peace as you watch over us.
Thanks to all who have already sent their well wishes and May God bless you all.
“But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.”
(2 Peter 3:8, NIV)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
I believe God wants to do exceedingly, abundantly above and beyond what you could even ask or think. He can take you further, faster than you could ever dream. God can speed things up on your behalf. Because you honor and trust Him, things that should have taken you a lifetime to accomplish will only take you a fraction of the time. This is the kind of God we serve!
We see this all through scripture. In just one day, David went from a shepherd boy to the one who led the Israelite army to victory. Ruth was a poor widow collecting scraps in the field, and God sent Boaz to her. She went from begging in the field to owning the field. God breathed in her direction. God took her further, faster.
Remember, the thoughts you think and the words you say are prophesying your future. If you want to see a shift occur in your life, you’ve got to get in agreement with God and say, “Yes, God, this is for me. I thank You that I am coming into my destiny sooner than I imagined!”
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father, I choose to trust that You are working behind the scenes on my behalf. I believe that You can take me further, faster than I could ever imagine. I surrender every area of my life to You. Use me for Your glory in Jesus’ name. Amen.
