New Season Keys – forgetting

12 01 2017

2017Last time we began the series on how to enter the new season.  Today we look at the first key to entering the new season, that of forgetting the former things as we look at Isaiah 43:18.

 

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?

I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”

Isaiah 43:18-19

 

To forget is to put out of our remembrance. Another definition is to cease from doing.  So to forget requires us to take the consequence action of letting go. We have to admit we are holding on to something or someone in our past.

 

As 2016 came to a close I found myself taking up bowling, something I had done very well for many years. Then I was strong and I bowlingcould bowl very well. I was on traveling leagues and carried at one time over a 190 average. I even married my bowling instructor.

 

But coming back to bowling in 2016 found a 59 year old woman struggling not to fall down. I found myself having to forget the former things. I could no longer use a 15 pound bowling ball and use a 5 step approach, choosing instead to purchase an 11 pound bowling ball which almost throws me and taking just 4 steps, hoping not to fall down.

 

The goals in bowling are different in 2017. They are to have fun with my husband and friends and to get some exercise, not to have a high average, win prizes and bowling on leagues.

 

As I look at bowling, I see God using it to remind me HE is doing a new thing, in every area of my life.  I have to forget the former things.  As I let go of the past and in bowling the 190 average, I am able to have fun and enjoy life!

 

Join me next time as we look at not dwelling on the past and the three areas that trip us up!

 

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

How to MOVE in the new season!

26 02 2016

moveWe are beginning a new series called “How to MOVE in this new season”. We will be using the acrostic MOVE to explain several important aspects of our movement in this season.

To Move is to go continuously from one point to another!

We take as our inspiration from these two verses:

 

And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees

and be careful to keep my laws.

Eze 36:27

 

“For in him we live and move and have our being.”

As some of your own poets have said, “We are his offspring.”

Act 17:28

We have to watch as we move forward in this season because there is so much that is passing by, whether it is the weekly services, maybe another conference or something else, we have to be aware of when and how to move so we stay in harmony with the plans and purposes of God!

We have to understand and know our motives; we have to be obedient to God. We have to walk with virtue and allow God to equip us, because without His equipping us, we might find ourselves off course or stranded in the middle of the night!

Join me next time as we look at the M in move, Motives!

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Prepare to Shine Brightly!

1 01 2016

2016 calendarAs we begin 2016 it has been a tradition for the Lord to give me a prophetic word for his people at the beginning of the year. I believe keeping Phil 1:6 is a key scripture as we enter this year.

 

“… being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

Php 1:6

 

I have been struggling with all the changes in my life. From changing churches to embracing my Jewishness. I said good-bye to my messianic body of believers as 2015 came to a close and as I did I have been forced to embrace who I am. I have made the decision to honor God by holding Sabbat each week. I had been struggling with how to begin because I couldn’t find a candle holder, so I decided to make one.shabbat candle holder

 

I prayed and I looked at the craft store I purchased this simple wood plaque and wood candle cups and brought them home. I took a picture to send to a friend of my project I began seeing the profound prophetic word for 2016 which God was releasing.

 

I sense we who believe in Yeshua (Jesus) are being set apart for something big.

 

Like this wood, we are yet unfinished for in the former season God shaped us and molded us but the work we were created for was never finished completely and like the candle cups which are as yet unsecured for the screws which I purchased to secure them were far too short so is the depth of our relationship with our God.

 

Our job is to be willing to accept the depth of relationship with Yeshua that is required for our light to shine brightly before men in this season and to rest in the truth that He who began a good work in us will bring it to completion!

 

Walk with expectation in 2016 for the Lord to shine brightly through you!

 

Join me next time as we look at the mystery and focus for 2016





Christ Teaches Us Perseverance

12 02 2013

7 P of the Life of Christ - 1We have been looking at the 7P’s of the Life of Christ and today we are looking at the result of patience, perseverance, the sixth P.

With all prayer and supplication praying at all seasons in the Spirit, and watching thereunto in all perseverance and supplication for all the saints…

Eph 6:18

Christ was able to have perseverance because he lived with a strong purpose. No other person ever had the strength of purpose (perseverance) Christ had. We don’t think about the perseverance of Christ, yet though he was fully God he was also fully human, having the same pulls we encounter everyday.

I think of all the things he had to steer clear of so that he did not sin. What a weight he carried and yet he did it willingly all the way to the cross.

We can have that same perseverance as Christ did only when we are willing to live with strong purpose. Perseverance is what it takes to make it all the way to the end whether you are struggling to perseverancemake it through a tough day at home or work, or you are fasting and your stomach is screaming for food.

Christ knew perseverance gets it fuel, not from man but from the presence of Lord, so as you struggle to persevere look not to man or your situation, but rather look to the Lord and he will see you through to the end!

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie
