Parents Should Welcome the "New Thing" in God

Even after decades of service to Abba in a specific area, God can change the direction of the flow of ministry amid a generation, according to His will.

Parents, don't be upset or disheartened in any way if the "song" God gives your children to sing isn't the same as yours.  Just be glad they're serving Him and moving with the flow of His Spirit in these ever-changing times.

There's not a tool or invention of mankind that will ever take Daddy by surprise; He knows how to use all things to His glory (to bring human souls into intimate relationship with Him), and He can be trusted to guide your children with the same faithfulness with which He guided you.  The sovereign, almighty, and righteous attributes of His character are unchangeable.  Amen.

A generation of singers can suddenly bring forth writers hungry to share God's verbal expressions throughout creation via pen and paper.

Five generations of splendid craftsmen can give birth to passionate musicians, and from a breed of televangelists God can spawn a line of souls who desire only to foster His hospitality in the kitchens behind the scenes.

All that is born of Yahweh is holy, and all of it is blessed.

Beloved, our God IS originality and diversity... and He will bestow, impart, and powerfully enable His giftings and honorable abilities anywhere and any way and upon anyone He chooses in whatever timing He desires.

So if your kids aren't expressing their hearts for God in quite the same way to which you're accustomed, don't sweat it.  Let Daddy's will prevail.  If God's got a new thing in mind for them, rest assured, it is in that venue He will impart His passion.  As long as they're following hard after Jesus Christ of Nazareth Who came in the flesh, let them be a butcher, baker, or candlestick maker even if your family has never been involved in such things.  Allow God's Spirit to flow freshly through them in whatever way HE chooses, and be glad.

Here's to the "new thing" in God through Jesus the Christ,

"... fervent in spirit, serving the Lord."
(Romans 12:11b)

A Promise Fulfilled

I haven't been online posting much in the past weeks because God has brought a miracle to my life through one of His "suddenlies"...

I am married again.

I am still on my honeymoon at this writing, and my new husband and I are enjoying each other and the sincere, honest, heartfelt, joyous love the Godhead has established in our midst.

It's a miracle... a miraculous and marvelous, wondrous answer to prayer, and a mega-promise made by God to me literally years and years ago (after the heartbreak of divorce) has been fulfilledHALLELUJAH!

God is good, Saints, and so much more than that!

To those of you who've put your hope in God alone all I can say is you've got it in the right place.  Keep hoping.  Keep watching.  Keep praying in faith believing His promises, for what He's done for this grateful daughter He'll do for ALL HIS SONS AND DAUGHTERS who believe...

... for He is faithful.

God bless y'all!

Tried and True

It's important to remember that when we ask Abba to affect change in our lives, and He does it, we will then be tried in that same place to build testimony and to increase our trust in Him.

I once heard Joyce Meyer give an excellent analogy in this regard, saying that the road worthiness of a repaired or replaced bicycle tire can only be proven once it is re-subjected to road conditions and "tried" under pressure.  Amen.  The owner must hop on and take it down the same roads upon which it blew out so that its new-found fitness can be demonstrated.

The same holds true concerning us with God.

Whenever the Father delivers me from temptation or bondage of a recurring sin, an issue of unforgiveness, or the myriad misconceptions of pride... invariably He will allow the same circumstance to come before my face later on to see how I handle it.  Often to my utter amazement and joy (even under the same circumstances)  those areas swept clean and filled by Daddy show forth no more malice, mischief, or malfunction but only the covering love of God.  When that happens and I, like David, seek diligently for the place of evil that used to exist but find it not, I look to Abba and, through the voice of His precious Holy Spirit, I hear Him say... "See what I've done?"  Then, like Vanna White He waves His tender hand gracefully over the cleansed area and says with a smile, "Am I not faithful?" Praise His Holy Name.

Probably my favorite portion of it all is that, once His change in me is proved worthy by trial, the same God Who fixed me rewards me for obediently responding to the work of His own hands! (Who wouldn't serve a God like that?)

My friends, tell me, who is like unto our God? His gentle, powerful lessons learned and applied to life will take us most assuredly from earth to Heaven.  But never is a change or repair made by Him that isn't also tried within us to show forth its strength and the reliability of His healing hands. So, beloved, be at peace in that knowledge when the time of trying comes. Hallelujah!

God bless you.
