The new season of one of my favorite Texas home remodels shows has begun. So far I’ve had to miss two of the episodes. I hope I can catch a re-run somewhere. I have no choice at this point but to wait for the next week’s episode and forget what I’ve missed.
There’s a move of God in the earth today and I don’t want to miss that for sure. I’ve decided after visiting with a couple this weekend that if a person wants to be in on what God is doing they will hunger and thirst for it. It’s just a supernatural response for those who are seeking God to want everything God has and to be in on all He is doing. I just know that I don’t have to miss it or wait for God to come back around again. I’m intent on remaining prayerful and watchful to get in on the first run of His plan.
Oh beloved, not one of God’s plans is beyond your opportunity. He’s calling you to come on with Him and drink deeply of His spiritual water and eat freely of His spiritual food! This is a wonderful year in the Spirit realm. It’s a Jubilee year for the children of God. Freedom is the theme, with emancipation and restoration of magnificent proportions. Don’t worry if it seems like so many don’t care or don’t want to investigation God’s heart for this year. If you are hungry and thirsty God promises to fill you up to overflowing! His gifts are there for you. His promises are wrapped up in gift packages waiting for you to open them. His new wine is prepared in new wine skins. You can’t mix old times with new times. You’ll have to let go of what was to see the new. But don’t fear it – embrace God fully! In God’s timing everything works together for good. In God’s plan all things are new. In God’s economy even the poor shall be rich indeed! If you will give God your whole heart and give Him your all He will bless you beyond your wildest imagination. You will also be pleasantly surprised that others are coming to Him with their whole hearts as well. You will discover that you won’t miss a thing with God if you just let Him love you and wrap you up in His loving plans!
Just as I wouldn’t be so excited to see an episode I’ve already watched, don’t be disappointed when others just want to watch re-runs of what God did formerly. Their contentment is your reminder to thank Him for giving you a new desire to abide in Him today. Keep your eyes on Him and participate in His present plans of glory in these last days! It’s a good year to follow God with your whole heart. It’s so easy to do: just steal away with Him in the secret place of prayer, let Him renew His vows over your life, ask for fresh fire in your belly and thank Him that you are going the distance because of His love, His Holy Spirit and His will!
God loves you and He’s for you. He’s not into re-runs. He’s into new shows of His Glory and new life in the Spirit! Rejoice that He has given you a hunger and thirst for Him. It’s all because of His love that He’s calling you to participate in His plans as you live in the Light of His Glory & Grace!
Isaiah 43:19 “Behold, I will do something new, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert.
Matthew 9:17 “And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. For the old skins would burst from the pressure, spilling the wine and ruining the skins. New wine is stored in new wineskins so that both are preserved.”
Matthew 5:6 “Blessed [joyful, nourished by God’s goodness] are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness [those who actively seek right standing with God], for they will be [completely] satisfied!
