one of my favorite psalms: May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us - yes, establish the work of our hands. Psalm 90:17
As I step into the role of working with Aaron, I pray that the Lord will establish the work of our hands. I pray for Him to go before us in this new endeavor. The Lord is good - and I can feel He is about to do something big. I have had a few questions regarding my teaching position, will I be returning to that ... right now - I do not know. I have talked with my Principal (who has known me since I was 14!) he will find out the when I have to officially make a decision, until then I am going to spend May and June working for Aaron. This time will allow me (and Aaron) to continue to search our hearts and be clear on our next steps.I praise God that He has placed Godly, Christian Men in leadership around me. Imagine that in a Public High School! God certainly has a plan!!!
Let God Arise
TODAY'S SCRIPTURE "Let God arise, let His enemies be scattered…”
(Psalm 68:1, NKJ).
TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria Let me ask you today, what are you letting arise in your life? In other words, what are you focusing your words, energy, and thoughts on? You might say, “Oh, Joel, it’s just so hard right now. I lost a lot of money in the stock market.” “My health doesn’t look good.” “Somebody walked out on me.” No, you’re focusing on the wrong things. You’re letting defeat, discouragement, and self-pity rise up. Why don’t you turn that around and say, “God is still in control. Somebody may have walked out on me, but I know God is going to bring me somebody better.” “I may be hurting right now, but I know God is the restorer of my soul.” “I may have lost money in the stock market, but I’m not worried. I know God is my provider. He is supplying all of my needs. He is fighting my battles.”
When you start giving God glory and letting Him arise in your life, you can’t stay defeated. Your enemies will be scattered! They’ll tremble at your words of faith. Begin right now by declaring God’s goodness in your life and let Him arise so that you can move forward in the victory He has for you.
A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father in heaven, I repent right now for allowing any negative, self-defeating thoughts or attitudes rise up in my life. You alone are my God, and I put my trust in You. I bless You today and always choose to look for the good things You have for me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Continuing to walk in Faithful Obedience to the LORD!
GRACE AND PEACE!
