“And your ears will hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way; walk in it, when you turn to the right hand and when you turn to the left.” (Isaiah 30:21 AMPC)
You are 11 days into the New Year. How are you doing on setting your goals? As you listen to God's voice in creating your goals remember God's love for us.
Let 2022 be the year that you never forget just how much God loves you:
“May the Master take you by the hand and lead you along the path of God’s love and Christ’s endurance.” (II Thessalonians 3:5 MSG)
Hear the voice of God saying to His Body, the church, and to you individually:
(YOUR NAME), out looking for a place to rest, met God out looking for them!" God told (YOUR NAME), "I've never quit loving you and never will. Expect love, love, and more love! And so now I'll start over with you and build you up again, dear (YOUR NAME) (Jeremiah 31:3-4 MSG)
Don’t be discouraged, distracted, or detoured. God has a great work for you to do.
Do like Nehemiah did when asked to stop what he was doing for the Lord and attend a meeting:
“And I sent messengers to them, saying, I am doing a great work and cannot come down. Why should the work stop while I leave to come down to you?” (Nehemiah 6:3 AMPC)
Stay on God’s course! As time progresses you will be so glad you did.
Let this be a part of your blueprint for 2022:
“Set your gaze on the path before you. With fixed purpose, looking straight ahead, ignore life’s distractions. Watch where you’re going! Stick to the path of truth, and the road will be safe and smooth before you. Don’t allow yourself to be sidetracked for even a moment or take the detour that leads to darkness.” (Proverbs 4:25-27 TPT)
Remember, you are not alone. God is directing you, so cooperate with Him:
I hear the Lord saying, “I will stay close to you, instructing and guiding you along the pathway for your life. I will advise you along the way and lead you forth with my eyes as your guide. So don’t make it difficult; don’t be stubborn when I take you where you’ve not been before. Don’t make me tug you and pull you along. Just come with me!” (Psalm 32:8-9 TPT)
Be Encouraged! ❤
