Grace has been the most powerful presence in my life. If you read in the Word grace always proceeds peace. You can’t have peace apart from grace. I love that GOD has a great exchange rate. The same power that saves us can also redeem our time and restore what has been lost in the depravity of this life and what the free will of man can do to us.
That’s the thing about being human, we sometimes think the two realms, spiritual and temporal do not overlap. I can promise you what affects you in the temporal will affect you in the Spiritual and what affects you in the Spiritual will affect you in the temporal. I am constantly being reminded and learning to understand I am a SPIRITUAL being having an earthly experience since I received Christ. I am also learning a huge difference between being CHRISTIAN and GODLY. Oh LORD! do I need you for this! God is teaching me daily to realize that the eternal perspective is HIS heart for me. Because it’s his perspective. LET this mind be in you which is also in Christ Jesus. So I am learning that’s it’s all about him and walking in his promise and not my own preference of what I think his promise should be. So I am stepping out in faith to believe what I have written below. This is humbling for sure because it’s not me at all but the power of GOD in me that can even attempt this.
Joel 2:25-32. This is the third time in 2 days GOD has brought this verse to me. From a request by a prison inmate Sunday… from Facebook today twice. I believe all of Gods Word is settled and … a truth for my life..
I am counting on this and receiving it as I do spiritual food and water. Let the Holy Spirit, Jesus and the Father… all do what they promise with this in me to me and for me. Anything contrary to this is not truth and is not received.
Friend, God knows how to make up for years you’ve lost in your life. No, you can’t relive your childhood, but God can make the rest of your life so rewarding, so fulfilling that you don’t even miss what didn’t happen in the past. You may feel like you wasted years in a relationship that didn’t work out. But God can bring somebody into your life so great, so fun, so friendly, so attractive that you don’t even remember the years that you’ve lost. You may have spent years on a job that turned out to be a dead end. You were working your way to the top; things didn’t turn out like you had hoped, and now it looks like there’s a big waste of time. You may not see how you could ever get to where you want to be, but don’t believe those lies. God knows how to make up for lost time. GOD CAN accelerate things. God can bring opportunities back across your path that you missed that will thrust you years ahead. It may not have happened the first time, but God will always give you another chance. He’ll make up for the lost time and bring you out better and stronger than ever before!
Father, you are my deliverer and have promised that you will accomplish this in my life. I receive it and believe it because you are a GOD who cannot lie. Thank you for taking a woman with a broken past and being her Father with a blessed future. I receive this by FAITH without wavering or flinching. Thank you for grafting me in as a Gentile and offering me the promise. I LOVE YOU In Jesus name amen.
