How have you spent your first day of 2014 today, friend?
I’ve been nibbling.
Taking in from all types of places:
The Book of Exodus (a little ahead in my One Year Chronological Bible)
I sense God stirring something in my heart. Something I have been praying about, but I am not exactly sure what it means. But it comes down to this:
The same old same old won’t work in ’14.
What that means?
I’m not exactly sure.
For me, I know I want to reach, in a new way, girls and their moms who need to hear the truth of Jesus’ love in a way that reaches their hearts; in a way they have never seen God before. I’m desperate to see young women find the true love their hearts are longing for – King Jesus. How that looks? I’m not quite sure.
Here are a few of the lines I have read today:
Stop sowing over and over in the exact same field. – Beth Moore
When you take steps to break out of the ordinary and worship Him as He deserves, you’ll begin to see facets of His being you never knew existed. He’ll begin to share secrets with you about Himself, His plans, and His desires for you. When you worship God as He deserves, He is magnified. – Jentezen Franklin
Do you hear the same thing? Same old same old isn’t going to work.
It’s time to ask God for direction to the new field. It’s time to fast, break out of the ordinary and worship Him, finding Him in a way we don’t know Him now. It’s time for greatness – the kind that doesn’t make me great; the kind that brings Him glory.
So, I’m asking. God, show me the field.
I’m fasting. God, help me minister to You.
I’m choosing discipline. God, make your name great and famous through me.
Will you join me? Will you be tired of the same old same old and be desperate for God to do something new?
We know He wants to:
And He promises:
Through discipline, let’s open our hearts and minds wide; open to receive what He wants to confide. The new thing He wants to do through me and through you!
