Good day my friends! So glad you are joining me to read today’s blog for the last week of January.This whole month we have been talking about “Live Joyfully.” For the first week, I spoke about writing the vision, plan a strategy to achieve it, and run with it. As a reminder of the Bible verse, please reread Habakkuk 2:2-3. It is not how fast you do the vision, it is you are progressing daily. With that said, how is that looking like so far?
Since God’s thought for you is to prosperous in every area of your live, the second week of the blog I spoke about the desire God has for those that love Him. He is the rewarder of those that diligently seek Him. When you focus on His word and follow His ways, you will see His goodness every single day. The verse that speaks about it can be found 1 Corinthians 2:9 “Eyes have not seen nor ears have heard nor have entered into the heart of man what God has prepared for those that love Him.”
This is not referring that you will be exempt from bad things or unexpected things occurring to you. However, you are not alone in it. Both you and Him will see it through to the other side of it! Even if you walk in the shadow of the valley of death, you will not fear evil. God’s rod and staff will comfort you during the whole journey. That is a promise you can take to the bank!
In continuation with that verse, I spoke about our hearing God’s voice daily in the third week of the blog. Hearing is vital to know in which path to go to with the One that has already seen your future. God is the best counselor to give wisdom to direct you to your purpose. Is when you operate in your purpose you will find joy. It is there you will flourish rapidly and be completely content.
Lastly, this week the part that is very important is the heart. The heart is where we feel the emotions and the desires. It is a fountain that can flow great rivers of living waters or can be gushing of toxic waste. Who decides what will come out of you? Is it the circumstances that deposits in the heart those items to pollute and contaminates it?
I can tell you it certainly will try to do that! However, it is up to you to place a filter in your heart to capture and eliminate it so it will not affect you. What is that filter? The word of God will purify and eliminate contaminants so you can be pure one of the most precious place - your heart. He wants you to give Him your heart and He will transform the bitterness, anger, hatred, disillusionment, and frustrations. It will be turned to understanding, mercy, grace, forgiveness, and love.
Allow Him to change it today. Give your whole heart to the Lord, not half nor three-quarters of it. If you do not want to continue been the same, do this by faith. If you want to change your mourning into dancing, place your hand in your heart right now and declare this verse.
“Create in me a pure heart, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” Psalms 51:10
Until next week, live joyfully!
Peace, love, and joy!
