Love you all, praying for you!
Praise God. Have you ever had this happen to you - in your PRISM time? God has you SOAP out a verse – and the next day you come back and He has you SOAP it out again – the same verse - but He gives you completely new revelation! Crazy stuff – happens all the time. This is God fulfilling His Word – this Word of God – is a living thing! Hebrews 4:12 – For the Word of God is living and active. Sharper than any two-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes (the intents) of the heart. His Word never runs out – like a magnificent diamond – it has so many facets - that from every angle you view it – you see brilliance at a whole different level. You really cannot fathom the incredibly wonderful things that God is preparing for you! He said He’s going to prepare a place for us. Heaven and the eternity He has for you – the home He has there - will make the biggest most luxurious mansion on the face of the earth – look like a cardboard box on skid row. I Corinthians 2:9 - But as it is written, "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined the things that God has prepared for those who love him.” This is talking about Heaven and all of eternity! But it equally applies to the unimaginable good that He has right here on earth for those who will simply hear and obey - the two most important things – today.
God revealed further… Psalms 95:8 – Today if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as you did at Meribah, as you did that day at Massah in the desert. Today. Today if you hear His voice… Everything starts with that! Yesterday is past, you obeyed yesterday or you didn’t, you were focused or distracted, you were completely faithful or incompletely faithful, you were thankful or not, you walked in faith or in doubt. You overcame with your testimony or you didn’t… but whether you were faithful or not – He was faithful! He woke you up this morning, in your right mind, breath in your lungs, and hope in your heart – if you see it… if you choose it. Your performance yesterday didn’t affect His love for you. He loves you, and every time you walk in obedience – it brings Him joy. Yesterday was important - yesterday, but not today. It is no longer important, that chapter is closed. Today is all that matters. Tomorrow isn’t here yet. Spend too much time thinking about tomorrow and you might miss what God has for you today. Save that for your five minutes of PiVAT before dinner… But what you think today, what you say today and what you do today – will have huge effect on tomorrow. Today – if you hear His voice. He is speaking, have no doubt. He is just waiting to reveal Himself to you; His love for you, His power in your situation, His specific will for you today, the very first step and sequence of steps you need - to walk in the victory He has for you. Today He is speaking – it’s only a matter of - if you hear. Today, if you hear His voice… The first half of success today is hearing. You cannot succeed without it. If you don’t hear, how can you obey? Praying for you – that’s why PiVAT before dinner is so important. Did you do PiVAT before dinner last night? If you did, you were able to share with your husband or wife the most important things that God put on your heart; God was able to speak to you in the night season, confirming His will for you, or giving clarity to your understanding. If you did PiVAT before dinner last night, you woke up this morning at the time He directed, with hope and excitement – in full expectation of what He is going to do today – and you can’t wait for your Daily Call to overcome and encourage them! If you didn’t do PiVAT before dinner last night – then just do it now! Today, if you hear His voice… You can still hear His voice for you – just do PiVAT right now! Just ask Him! He’s not gonna say “Where were you!” He’s just gonna say “I Love You!” I’ve got such good things for you today – I’m so glad you’re here… Let’s get started – Here’s the first step! Step #1!
Then - you’re ready for the second half of success today – If you hear. If you don’t hear, you’re on your own – if you don’t do PiVAT – you’re on your own… you’ll never know all that He wants for you to do… what He would say – that you need most, that He wants for you – for your good! Without PiVAT with Him – getting His ways not yours - the best you can get is what you can come up with, or what just happens. But if you hear, God says – then… do not harden your heart. No one decides to harden their heart – that I know of. It’s the first response when you hear – that determines what happens to your heart. Do you pause, or pursue? Do you obey or hesitate? Do you turn it over in your mind? (God’s definition of a perverse heart or a perverse tongue?) Or like David, have you inclined your heart to obey – and your feet are already moving, your mouth is already saying – the moment you hear His voice? Praying that’s you. That if you didn’t hear – in PiVAT before dinner last night, you’ll stop right now and do it. Get His plan for you from right now in this hour – and forward for the rest of today. And praying that when you hear – you will be so quick to do the first step. Once you’re going – God reveals the rest! The best testimonies come from obedience! First you hear, then you obey, then God does crazy things! – because He just loves you and is so excited about what He has planned for you today. He has joy, blessing, fruit, success, significance, abundance, peace, rest – just the joy of the LORD – that is waiting -behind every door of obedience. Two things today – hear and obey – and you will surely walk in all the good that He has for you!
Love you all,
