No matter what is happening around you, be confident that God has a plan. Romans 8:28 “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

The Sea of Galilee is the largest sea or lake in Israel for freshwater. And it is the lowest. This place would become the base of Jesus ministry 18 to 33 miracles that the son of God performed on the earth will happen around the Sea of Galilee this is the region where he revealed his glory.
The edge of your next blessing will often be the place of your greatest frustration. That certainly was the scene in Luke 5:1-11
. Peter had been fishing all night and caught nothing, Jesus came on the scene and Peter’s obedience to the instructions of Jesus in this encounter changed everything. Obedience is not an obligation but and opportunity for an incredible blessing.

No Failure Is Fatal
/
Joshua 8:1–29
Failures are fatal only if we fail to learn from them.
We just need to put the past in the past and God’s plan in place.
Don’t spend another minute in the pigpen. It’s time to rise up.
Don’t waste your failures by failing to learn from them. It’s time to wise up.
God has not forgotten you. Keep your head up. You never know what good awaits you.

What To Do While You're Waiting
/
When we have the confidence and we know God is a good God and that He is going to answer our prayers – HE IS GOING TO FULLFILL HIS PROMISES then we don’t have to worry or fret or try and take matters into our own hands.
We don’t have to worry we can be patient we can take hope, we can stay strong and courageous, and we can live in great expectancy of what He’s going to do.
Psalm 27:13-14 “I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of living.  Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart, and wait for the Lord”
Wait expectantly.
Be strong.
Let your heart take courage.
Wait in hope.
And Wait patiently.
 
 

The Attractive Quality of Kindness

The Attractive Quality of Kindness
/
Kindness stands out in a world of harshness and selfishness.
It’s an attractive quality, evident not only on our faces but especially in our words and actions.  More importantly, kindness is an attribute that should characterize every believer because it’s a reflection of Christ in us. 
Kindness is mentioned in as part of the fruit God’s Spirit produces within us:
Galatians 5:22-23 “But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!”

Sometimes Hidden Treasures Can Be Found In Dark Places

Acts 9:1-9 Saul on the road to Damascus.
God took away his eyesight so that he might obtain insight. 
God is terminating the agenda of the enemies that are coming against you. In Jesus Name I speak to every exile that has kept you up at night worried about what’s coming. Don’t worry about what’s coming because God is getting ready to knock it off its beast. He is getting ready to shut it completely down. 

A LIFE OF GENEROSITY

A LIFE OF GENEROSITY
/

Generosity is not about what’s in your bank
account—it’s about what’s in your heart.
The apostle James said, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning” (James 1:17).
Our God is a generous God. Since we are made in His image, we can take comfort in knowing that generosity is within our reach. And if ours is a world stamped from beginning to end by divine generosity, then it stands to reason that we ought to ‘risk’ a generosity of spirit commensurate to that reality!

A Life of Endurance

A Life of Endurance
/
Hebrews 10:36, which states simply,
“You have need of endurance”.

I was speaking with a trainer at my gym and we were talking about the “hand weights” that I was using and she said to me, Kim…heavy weights, lifted fewer times is succession, produce greater strength. But lighter weights, lifted with more repetitions, produce greater endurance. This hit my spirit like a bolt of lightning especially with the season I’ve been in. See when it comes to life, most of us can lift a heavy weight if we only have to do it once or twice. In other words, major problems that come and then go away quickly may be painful, but they are usually manageable.  That’s why God wants to infuse us with a “can-do” attitude, with supernatural endurance, perseverance, and resilience. You and I cannot give up—not for a moment.  Here’s what I earned: Heavy weights, lifted fewer times in succession, produce greater strength. Lighter weights, lifted with more repetitions, produce greater endurance.  When it comes to life, most of us can lift a heavy weight if we only have to do it once or twice. In other words, major problems that come and then go away quickly may be painful, but they are usually manageable. For me, it’s not the big problems that are the hardest. For me, the problems that are the toughest to overcome are the problems that never seem to get solved . . . the ones that keep coming back. God wants us to be strong men and women of faith. To achieve that, I believe we must become men and women of resilience and endurance. If I cannot stand strong under the adversity of unrelenting pressure.

Life requires endurance, but we don’t have to persevere in our own strength or keep going on the sheer basis of willpower alone. We fix our eyes on Jesus, and we endure and thrive because of His endurance.

What if there was no Christmas what would I be missing in life? There would be no joy to the world. There would be no hark the herald angels sing. There would be no silent night. There would be no gift giving. There would be no God with us. There would be no reason for the season. There would be no holiday spirit. There would be no Good News. There would be no faith. There would be no prayer. There would be no bridge to Heaven. There would be no grace. There would be no mercy. There would be no forgiveness. There would be no purpose for our lives. There would be no bondage breaker. There would be no freedom. There would be no eternal life. There would be no transformations. There would be no light at the end of the tunnel. There would be no revivals. There would be no church. There would be no Christians. There would be no bridge to the presence of God. There would be no Spirit filled life. There would be no life recovery. There would be no love. There would be no New Testament and the Bible as we know it. There would be no entrance to the Holy of Holies. There would be no revelation. There would be no Church. There would be no pastor’s. There would be no worship music. There would be no Bread of Life There would be no deliverance. There would be no joy in life. There would be no testimonies to His resurrection power. There would be no miracles. There would be no defeating of death. There would be no salvation. There would be no hope. But there is Christmas and therefore we have the benefit and the blessing that comes from it. Jesus gave all so that we could live abundantly every day! He is the greatest gift of all.
