Problem Solving

Already Done!

Something we often say when yet another problem assails our lives is,

“There’s always something!”

But, here’s some good news, for a change!

Adding just two words can make a whole difference…

To overcome

So now, we have a brand-new deal, “There’s always something… to overcome.”

But how can we change something that seems so unchangeable? There’ll always be problems in this world. They can’t just go away! Can they?

No, but they are all totally surmountable. Why? Because Jesus has already achieved victory over every hardship this life throws at us.

He said, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)

Yes, there will be trouble ahead but as we align to Christ, a process of victory over it is assured because he’s already gone ahead of us and made it possible.

Hard to believe. But it’s true!

Now, every challenge in life can be overcome.

Are you ready to give it a go today?

Go on..it’s already done!

Majority Thinking

The only one! 🙁

Christ followers can often feel an ‘earthly minority’ in their daily lives. This is a lonely place to be.

But the truth is that “the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” (1 John 4:4)

You with God are a ‘heavenly majority’!

One day the servant of Elisha was terrified of what he naturally saw as a majority army against them. But Elisha asked the Lord to reassure him by opening his spiritual eyes and show him the heavenly majority in their favour.

“The Lord opened his eyes. He looked and saw…” (2 Kings 6:17)

If you are living a ‘minority life’ right now, take time aside with God. Enjoy His Presence, and include this prayer.

‘Lord, please open my spiritual eyes so I too can see my majority in heaven.’

No longer alone. 😆
Supernatural Work Life

Stay Connected

“If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit.” (John 15:5)

It’s just a one-dimensional working life if we only rely on skills, qualifications and experience.

Connected to Christ during our working day brings us infinite possibilities from heaven, our spiritual home.

“God is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine.”
(Ephesians 3:20)
God's Presence

The One Constant

“The light shines in the darkness.” (John 1:5)

Like a Golden Thread in the mess of life…

Illness, fear, sadness, accident, death, crisis, disappointments…

God remains the One Constant of…

Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

That’s why I love Him with all my heart, all my mind, all my soul and all my strength.

If you want the One Constant in your life today…

Just ask The Holy Spirit to be your friend.

He’s waiting for you!

Faith Pioneering, Prophetic Poetry

Box Free!

A view from heaven

I am not a word that I would stay in a book,

Or a book itself that I would stay on a shelf.

Hem Me in and I’ll break out,

Lock Me in and I’ll break free,

Try to imprison Me yet I’ll be free in no time.

You can’t lock Me into the past,

Just try keeping Me out of the present,

Try guarding Me from the future and you’ll fail every time.

Don’t try locking Me into your mind,

I hate small, confined spaces!

My playground is the wide-open spaces,

You can’t put Me in a box!

I roam free and I roam far,

I love what is small and large..

…all things and all people.

I am not a scent to be kept in a bottle,

Not a polish kept in a tin,

I am all things, to all things,

The beginning and the end,

I created them all.

I could put you in a box,

Hem you in and control you,

Yet I created you for myself,

Not as a plaything to use and abuse.

To be just like Me.

To run free, work and create,

Love others in bubbles of joy,

Not be in a box.

Think big, not small,

Flowing with My Spirit.

So, do not:

Be put in a box, confined to tight structures,

Think according to your own mind,

Be constrained by the past,

Be locked into things

Become stagnant.

And do:

Run with My Spirit,

Renew your mind in My word,

Lean into the future,

Delight in Me, not in things,

And flow in My eternal river.

A Life of Refreshing

“You give them drinks from your river of delights.” (Psalm 36:8)

God

You are the freshness in my life.

A flowing River of Delights through all seasons.

That constantly nourishes my soul.

As I thirst after our togetherness.

Thank you!

A Special Identity

“You lifted me up.” (Psalm 40:2)

When we magnify people, we diminish ourselves.

When we magnify God, He is magnified.

And so are we! Father God magnifies us in return, saying, “You are my child, in whom I delight.”

“And as Christ himself is seen for who he really is, who you really are will also be revealed, for you are now one with him in his glory!” (Colossians 3:4)

A special identity indeed!

Autumn Leaves – workwithgodblog.co.uk

A prophetic poem for an expectant church

Autumn leaves, Fallen and discarded, They lie crestfallen and dirty. Their wondrous colours fading into the night. Silent and dead they appear, When all ‘ a sudden they’re woken! They stir, float and fly, are diligently gathered and powerfully charged With Love’s passionate zeal. A riotous throng, tumultuous…
