Expect the Great Vision Great Expectation This month we are approaching a new season. This season is another chance for a fresh start in your life. A lot of times because of our past situations, past experiences, past hurts-- we walk into new situations carrying old baggage. God wants to do great things in our lives.
In Jeremiah 29:11 of the bible he says “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” This means that there is a set purpose for our lives. A purpose that will bring us hope and a future. We can not carry the attitude of defeat into a place where we should be expecting joy.
Sometimes we have to make a sacrifice before we can see the harvest. Most farmers see seeds that they have planted to produce such wonderful herbs, fruits, and food. We as consumers only see the final product without considering the seed. Think about what sacrifice you can make that will help you get closer to fulfilling your vision. Take active steps toward pursuing your goals. Never forget that God is the source of everything we need. When we seek him...he will open countless doors that we could not open alone. What are you willing to sacrifice to see your dream come to life?
Your attitude can either assist you in accomplishing your dreams or keep you from getting anything accomplished. If you think and speak nothing but negative things into your life, you can only expect negative results. If you speak positive things and keep a positive attitude, even in the worst conditions...you are setting yourself up for a positive outcome. We want to encourage you in this new season of your life to change the way you think. Expect nothing but great outcomes in your life. All it takes is a little bit of faith and your ability to trust that God will do everything he promised you. Remember to speak what you seek until you see what you’ve said!
We all know the popular saying that there is “light at the end of the tunnel”. A lot of the time it seems like we are traveling through that tunnel way too long. We each have a vision, a dream, or a goal we want to see happen. The question is how do we really bring our vision to life? The answer is simple.
Jesus Can Save You Jesus is our life-guard. He is there to watch over us and save us if ever we are sinking. If you want to be rescued from bad habits, hurt, frustration, and confusion...He is here to save you. Just repeat the prayer below and you can be saved TODAY. Dear Lord, I know that I am not perfect and have made some mistakes, but I ask that you would forgive me for my sins. I ask that you would come into my life and save me. I believe that you died on the cross for my sins and rose again to give me life. I want to walk in the new life you gave me from this day forward. Amen Scriptures to Read: Romans 3:10-12&23; Romans 6:23; Romans 5:8; Romans 10:9-10&13; Romans 5:1; Romans 8:1
