Every Day With Jesus is Significant
I sense that there are some who have been living under enormous pressure, stress and in discontentment. It feels as though you are wading your way through each day, holding on for an occasion or even putting off happiness until you’re in the next season you feel called to.
I heard the Holy Spirit say, “Every day with Jesus is significant.” I sense his encouragement to sow into every day with purpose and conviction.
“If you plant the good seeds of Spirit-Life you will reap the beautiful fruits that grow from everlasting life of the Spirit. And don’t allow yourselves to be weary or disheartened in planting good sees, for the season of reaping the wonderful harvest you’ve planted is coming!” Galatians 6:8 – 9 The Passion Translation
I heard Him say he is restoring all things to you and like Nehemiah, refuse to come down from the great work he has called you to (Nehemiah 6:3). Continue to sow into each day, even if you are yet to see the fruit of your work. The harvest you’ve planted is indeed coming!
There is a wooing that has been released in the spirit, “Draw near to God and he will draw near to you” James 4:8 ESV.
It is here you will find your strength, hope and expectation for daily life and “the wall” which he has called you to.
For those who have been living under great pressure and carrying the weight of human expectation, I sense the father’s invitation to let him love you and lift those expectations and human effort from you. As you do, life will begin to be a whole lot more fun – you are going to begin to enjoy the small things again!
Be encouraged; there may be pain in the night but joy comes in the morning and he is bringing a new day to you! He is your joy and the lifter of your head!
“But you, LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high.” Psalm 3:3 NIV
I heard the Father say, “Gratitude is the key. It will take you to and keep you in the place of joy.”
Candice Simmons wrote recently, “Gratitude can turn common days into extraordinary ones, routine jobs into joy and ordinary opportunities in blessings.”
Look up and live!
