Bethany's BlogWords of Encouragement

Identified

 

God is so rich in mercy, and He loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, He gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by grace that you have been saved!) For He raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:4-6

Jesus has already given you a name. He has chosen you to be His own. He has lifted you up to sit with Him in heavenly places, and placed authority upon you. He has given you dominion over all the earth, and called you out to rule as a Queen and a King. He has molded you with His very own heart, and washed you with His grace and mercy. 

You are identified as His own!

Privileged, loved, and honored.

You have been given the ability to walk in a supernatural life, with the keys to the Kingdom in your hands. He has engraved your name in His Hands. The relationship you have with Him is forever! He infuses you with truth as you listen to the Words He speaks to you. He covers you with His protection, and reminds you to have courage. He sings over you to comfort you.

Let today be your day to know Who you are in Jesus, be solid in your roots and do not sway.

Joy

I'm whistling, laughing, and jumping for joy; I'm singing your song, High God. Psalms 9:2

God is a God of joy, and today is the day to belong to His joy. Let it be deep within your heart. Let it be your experience today. He is singing over you. He wants to dance with you! Go ahead, whistle, laugh, and jump for joy, HE IS!

He is the Creator of good things, and He wants you to be happy. He wants to give you good things and He wants you to have a joyful day. He wants to engage in joyfulness with you. He wants to bring joy into your life and root it deeply within you. This is Who He is. 

He is Love, and Love sprouts Joy.

Joy is a fruit of the Spirit; the fruit of the Spirit is characteristic of God. It describes His behaivor towards you. When His Spirit lives within you, then His fruit also describes your behaivor toward Him and others. It is good.

There is power in His Spirit and so much love. My life has changed, I used to think God was angry and unkind. But, now I have seen His kindness and understood His compassion towards me, and felt His grace. He has shown me Who He is, and lifted me unto Himself.  

Today is the day to sing to God, my High and Holy God!

Spirit Power

 

 A new power is in operation. The Spirit of life in Christ, like a strong wind, has magnificently cleared the air, freeing you from a fated lifetime of brutal tyranny at the hands of sin and death.

Romans 8:2

 It's a New Year, many of us are ready to step into something different. It's time to stretch and grow in new directions. Reach up, reach out, for the Power of God is surrounding you. He has given you His authority to be free! 

What do you really want to do this year? How will you shine? His Power is within you, how will you let Him reveal it to others? His mercy is your Power, His grace is your power, His love is your power. 

His Spirit is fire within you!

His Spirit is working within me and giving me clarity everyday. He is my voice. The calling that I have known for a very long time is becoming clearer to me. Spiritual muscles are stronger, and roots are deeper. His mercy flows over me like a flood of warmth, and I know He loves me.

Prayer

And he said, "Please, show me Your glory." Then He said, " I will make all My goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion."

Exodus 33: 18-19

Prayer is a place of intimate favor and blessing with Jesus. It is a time to rest, laugh, converse, and find peace in His heart.  It is a time of assurance that the enemy is not in control, but surely the Saints have all authority in Christ Jesus! He gives us His goodness and His glory so we can rise up and be a light in the darkness, salt to the earth, and a beacon on a hill. 

Prayer has been an intimate connection to God for me. It has brought me through stormy days, and sailed me through long sleepless nights. With prayer, I have answers. The Holy Spirit speaks to my heart, and I have learned to discern His voice. Yet, still there are times I do not always know. I'll question if it's Him or me. That is when I am required to step out in faith. He will pass before me and show me His goodness and be gracious to me and show me compassion. He loves it when I step out, rise up, and move towards Him.  

God is good, His favor is upon us, and He is seeking a deep intimate relationship with His people. He seeks to show us His glory. Talk to Him today!
