Here we are at the launch of a new and exciting year. We have seen the hand of God moving powerfully in so many lives through the word that He gave us for last year:
Great Growth - Great Acceleration - Great Growth
We here at Allan Bagg Ministries are gearing up for an even more exciting year. In spending time with our Lord in prayer I heard the Lord impressing upon me a call to walk even closer with Him.
All through the Word of God we see examples of those who walked with God. Genesis 5:24 tells us,
And Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.
No, of course our goal is not to be taken until we are done with our assignment on this earth, or when our Lord comes to take us...but we can see that it is God's desire for us to walk with Him.
Notice, it is us walking with God...not us doing our own thing and then hoping God will come along with us. Jesus told us in Matthew 6:33,
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
The Word of God tells us in Amos 3:3,
Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?
I made the quality decision very early in my Christian walk...GOD IS ALWAYS RIGHT!
I know this can almost sound obvious, yet this is exactly where the enemy tries to steal from us. Sometimes we go through some serious trials and challenges and then the devil will try and put
thoughts in our heads like, "where is God now?", or, "are you sure God said". Here's a ringer, "this works for others but not for you".
When this happens to me, I always remind myself of the wise words of James 1:2-4,
My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials,
knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let
patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and
complete, lacking nothing.
By faith, thank God for being with you through the trial. Draw closer to God by spending more time with Him in prayer and worship. As we walk with God we see His promise of a reward where we will be complete with nothing lacking! Hallelujah!!
I sensed in my heart that as we walk this way we can expect a double portion ... acceleration upon acceleration.
Receive it by faith! As you sow your faith seed this month...decree in agreement with the Word of God, "I am expectant of being complete and lacking nothing! I receive my double portion...acceleration upon acceleration, in the Name of Jesus."
Janine and I love you dearly and pray for you every day..
You are blessed!
