removing mountians

From God Calling:
I am teaching you both My Way of removing mountains.
The way to remove mountains is the way of Praise. When a trouble comes think of all you have to be thankful for. Praise, Praise, Praise.
Say "Thank You" all the time. This is the remover of mountains, your thankful hearts of praise.

I looked back over my journals from the past 6 months and they are filled with Thank Yous to the Lord. I consider how much my life changed in one year and can truly reflect on how wonderful the Lord has been. Mountains are no longer mountains.

Learning to Receive

TODAY'S SCRIPTURE "If you believe, you will receive…"(Matthew 21:22, NIV)

TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria

All through the Bible, there are so many promises of what God has already done for us. It says in Ephesians that "God has blessed us with every spiritual blessing." It says in Colossians that "God has made us worthy." There is mercy for any mistake we will ever make. It’s already been taken care of. He paid the ultimate price through the death, burial, and resurrection of His Son, Jesus. He’s done His part. Now it’s up to us to do our part. We have to start believing it so we can receive it.

In the natural, when someone gives you a gift, what’s the first thing you usually say? "Thank you." When you give thanks, it’s a sign that you are receiving the gift. Today, start receiving what God has given you by saying, “"Father, thank You for Your mercy. Thank You for supplying all my needs. Thank You for Your goodness in my life.”

As you learn to give Him thanks, you are learning to receive from Him. Open your heart by faith today and thank Him for all the blessings He has prepared for you!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY "Father God, I come to You today giving You thanks and praise for Your faithfulness in my life. I choose to receive Your Word which is life and strength to my soul. Help me to keep my heart focused on You. In Jesus’ Name. Amen."
