Being Established in New Things   Recently updated!

2017 was the last year of an old season and at the same time, it was the first year of a new season. I plucked up some things and now It is time for some new things to be established. Pay attention to what you are building on…

Being Established in New Things

Be Established in new Things

I see lots of progress as new things are taking root in my life. Life is a lot like gardening, you plant things but in order for them to survive and then thrive, the root systems have to become established. In the same way, things have to take root in our lives and become established. Constructing a  building is similar, you have to pay attention to what you are building on. 

One of my favorite “go to passages” that I –go to– during times of feeling stagnant and unmotivated is about God making all things new. It is found in Revelations 21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. KJV And another one is Isaiah 43:19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. KJV I don’t know about you, but this year was a major transition year for me. My 15-year marriage ended. It was the most significant transition since the death of both of my parents. So now I find myself looking around and surveying the landscape of my life trying to figure out what is next.

This year I have been asking myself a lot of questions and pondering the answers. What do you want? How do you want your life to look in 1, 3 or 5 years? Who matters to you? What kind of people do you want in your life? What do you need to change? Where do you need to Grow? What you need to stop doing and what do you need to start doing? And on and on.  
 Being established in New Things
This morning as I pondered some of these questions, I kept hearing the phrase be established. And God began to speak to me along those lines about establishing new foundations under the things he is adding to my life. Establish means to set up (an organization, system, or set of rules) on a firm or permanent basis.
There are multiple areas of life that require a solid foundation. That is the subject of the following 2 videos. And below are the scriptures references used to spark an encounter with God over his word. Happy eating!

Overcoming a poverty spirit

Overcoming a Poverty Spirit 2

In my meditation this morning, I was praying along the lines of understanding what constitutes poverty. One of the best definitions I have ever heard comes from Graham Cooke. He says that poverty is living with meager possibilities. I expanded on the definition a bit however, because when we think about […]
