Your present condition does not dictate your future, your faith in God does.
The Word of God is living and active. If you confess the Word of God over your heart and life, it will not return void. We encourage you to meditate on these confessions.

Confession


And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people. (Isaiah 51:16)

The Lord has put His words in my mouth therefore I shall be his mouthpiece, and because He covers me I shall not be afraid to speak.

Let Your Roots Go Deep

This is what the Lord says:
Cursed are those who put their trust in mere humans, who rely on human strength and turn their hearts away from the Lord.They are like stunted shrubs in the desert with no hope for the future. They live in the barren wilderness, in an uninhabited salty land.
But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is in the Lord. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spreads out its root by the river, and will not fear when heat comes or worried by the months of drought. Their leaves stay green and never cease from yielding fruit. (Jeremiah 17:5-8)


How is your spiritual walk?
Are you feeling empty,thirsty, dry like their is a famine in your life, not producing any fruit.Perhaps you have allowed yourself to become a leaky vessel, you are broken, you feel stunted with no hope for the future.

God is calling you today to go deeper, He is calling you back to a place where you begin to hunger and thirst for Him, where nothing seems to satisfy you.
Its time to bring your dreams and vision to the forefront again.

He wants you to let your roots go deep so that when the drought comes you will remain rooted and grounded , you will not wither and die, you will not faint and give up as many Christians are today.

Begin to go deep in the word and prayer and as you do that there comes an abiding, an overflowing. As you go deeper with Him you will begin to affect things around you and that is what God is looking for because a flood affects everything in its path

God is looking for people who would say my soul follows close behind you.
You have to begin to get desperate like Jacob, become a God clinger and refuse to let go until there is change.

Beautiful and Amen! I am so thirsty and hungry for God's Word. I want to be that tree which is firmly planted by the waters edge. I love the Lord and can not imagine (nor do I want to) my life without Him! I am so grateful to Jesus for changing me each and every day. Great writing my friend! God bless!

Repentance is a God given opportunity to enter into the blessings of the Lord and escape from the oppression of the enemy.
