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. 😆

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)

Rich in Every Way

One day I was thinking of all the bad news on TV.

“It’s just one view they’re presenting” I told myself.

And I ached for God’s perspective on events, asking Him to “grow my sense of being seated in heavenly places.” (Ephesians 2:6)

Then I realised that He’s already doing that and thanked Him for it. And I told myself, “don’t ask for something when He’s already at work doing it.”

You see, thanking Him from a place of ‘knowing’ is superior to asking from a place of ‘need’. For if we keep asking for what we already have, we are choosing poverty.

It’s like asking for food when the table in front of us is laden with every morsel we could ever wish for.

Thanking God for being rich is the road to receiving the ‘abundant life’ that Christ has won for us all. Asking in poverty merely gives our enemy a foothold to ‘kill, steal and destroy’. (John 10:10, Ephesians 4:27)

Let’s not do that!

Instead, join me today in thanking God that we are rich in every way in Christ. (Philippians 4:19)

And let’s keep thanking Him everyday!

Enduring All Things

Cherry blossom – summer’s on the way!

“When it seems as though you are facing nothing but difficulties see it as an opportunity to experience the greatest joy that you can!

For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up power within you to endure all things.

And then as your endurance grows even stronger it will release perfection into every part of your being until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking.”

James 1:2-4 TPT

Who are you listening to?

A  person goes to Jesus and asks, ‘how am I doing today?

Jesus replies, ‘you are the apple of my eye. I love you, good and faithful friend.’

The person then goes to the devil and asks the same question.

The devil replies, ‘you’re nothing. Everything you’re doing is useless. You may as well give up now!’

Who are you listening to today?

Agreeing with God

Our beliefs and actions need to be in agreement with what God says.

So, if I believe I can fly like a bird, this not being in agreement with what God believes about me, then I am deluded, listening to a lie, and if I do it I will probably die!

Believing a lie suffers a curse!

Believing what God says, like Abraham, births a blessing such as fatherhood of a nation. So, even if we say it’s impossible, if God says it is possible and we then believe (agree with) Him it certainly becomes possible because He believed it first. We have aligned spiritually and enter into the blessings of being in that Place.

Believing a truth brings a blessing!

Jesus defined, aligns
When Jesus defined His ‘I am’ identities, such as ‘Light of the World’ and ‘Bread of Life’ a spiritual door opened that let heaven out amongst His audience. This surge of holiness divided those present. They either agreed or disagreed.

Those who agreed with the Light would never walk in darkness again. The many people who deserted Jesus because they thought He was just a miracle man did not get eternally fed. Possessing the same spirit as Esau, they sold their birthright for a single meal or miracle, choosing short-term gain over eternal inheritance.

Agreeing is freeing
I am not who I am by comparison with others, but whom God says I am.
Knowing this and living by it unravels a lot of unhealthy living. It releases me into a big, beautiful Place where I’m free to be whoever I am in an atmosphere of unconditional love.

God's Presence, Prophetic Poetry, Reflections, Supernatural Work Life

The sweetest thing

Living on the edge,
On the road less travelled,
God’s Presence is the sweetest thing.
He upholds me,
Gives me strength,
And keeps me from falling.

I find rock beneath my feet,
Where none is usually found.
Supplies along the way,
And gifts wrapped just for me.
It’s a personal thing.
Treasures without end….
