Love you all, praying for you!
God is a God of numbers – actually, He’s a math genius. And God even does things in number patterns. Whether creating the earth in seven days, ordaining the year of Jubilee among many other examples... Numbers have great significance with God. The Number 1 for example represents the oneness of God. The Number 2 represents union - the Old Testament and the New, the old man, Adam, and the new man Christ – as well as the union of marriage – the two shall become one. The Number 8 for example represents new beginnings. As we approach the month of August – the eighth month of the calendar year – what might God have you begin or begin again – in this eighth month of new beginnings? Is there something that God told you to do this year? How are you doing in it? Does God want you to refresh or restart anything? Is God leading you to new beginnings in something else? Praying that you will take the time today or tomorrow – to seek God specifically for August in PiVAT Monthly – your Insert #3 for your Conversation Logs this year. Praying that you will review God’s amazing faithfulness to you this year so far! Can you believe it’s already August and school is about to start? Praying that you will take the time to seek the LORD and ask Him about any beginnings, or begin again-ings that He may have for you. Be sure to distinguish between flesh and spirit. You’ll need to ask Him. Just because you look in the mirror and notice a few pounds that you could do without – doesn’t mean God is wanting you to run the Boston Marathon. It’s easy to let our flesh dictate our beginnings. But most things begun in our flesh or our mind, don’t last. They might not be what God told us to do, so if we pursue them we could squander the energy and time He wants focused on what He specifically has ordained for us.
Scripture is full of new beginnings! From Jonah – rescued from the belly of the fish, God had him begin again, his journey to Nineveh; or the woman caught in adultery, that God said, Neither do I condemn you – Go and sin no more. If God has a beginning for you – or a re-beginning, He will lead you and confirm it. If He has something for you to begin again, past failures don’t matter – all that matters right now is the faith to obey. Joy always comes with obedience. Praying that this month – you will not only know what God wants you to begin or begin again, but also what He wants you to continue – that you’re doing well – that’s producing fruit in your life! Praying that PIVAT before dinner every day – would reveal God’s will for you and His faithfulness to you. Praying that PRISM each day will have you coming back to the loving words of your Heavenly Father to you - that confirm His will, and communicate His heart. Praying that your Daily Call – has you overcoming every day – sharing counsel, testimony and encouragement! Whatever God wants you to begin, begin again, or continue – it’s so you walk in the absolutely unimaginable GOOD that He has stored up for you. Praying that you will begin and begin again – as He leads – and that you will continue in every thing and every Godly habit that He has placed in your heart to do.
