THE ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER With Pastor Leisa:


"So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you." (Romans 12:1-2 MSG)


The Lord gave me this acronym for SHIFT a few years ago:


S = Standing

H = Here

I = In

F = Faith

T = Totally Trusting God for transformation


I realize there's something I must do also to be transformed and grow. I'm embracing the new, the shifts God is bringing into my life. I'm holding how I do things very loosely. I want to be able to let them go quickly when needed while opening myself up to new possibilities.


"“Do not remember the former things, Or ponder the things of the past. “Listen carefully, I am about to do a new thing, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even put a road in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert. “The people whom I formed for Myself Will make known My praise." (Isaiah 43:18-19, 21 AMP)


When you remain in the past you will miss what God is doing in your present and won't be prepared for your future!


I want to be alert and present to see the shift, the brand-new thing that God is getting ready to do in my life. What about you?


FAITH CONFESSION


Lord, I want to be alert and present to see the brand-new thing you are getting ready to do in my life. I don't want to miss it. I am letting go of my past and embracing my God ordained future. I am ready to shift with You!


SHIFT is happening here!



Be Encouraged! ❤
