God’s Word
Since you are honored and precious in my sight
and because I love you…
Isaiah 43:4

 
 

Encouragement Shared:
The Holy Spirit has spoke into my heart once again, an out pouring of love, beauty and joy…
Strength for the battles; we move from strength to strength, victory to victory and glory to glory to glory… I was inspired by two sisters in Christ to write today because of the calling in their life to Restoring Broken Walls… They are both born missionaries being obedient to answer the call of courageous faith! Blessings to my friend Christa J.  and Sasha M. thank you for being living examples in your evangelical call.

 We are all called to serve the Kingdom of God through the gifts given unto us.
So sisters let us walk by faith and not by sight as we grow in godly wisdom and grace, to be bold and stout hearted [Psalm 138] Afterall sisters you are honored and precious in his sight and yes he loves you!

The Promise:
He has given us his very great and precious promises…He gives his king great victories; he show unfailing kindness to his anointed. 2Peter 1:4; 2Samuel 22:51
May he continue to bless you Sisters richly as you continue to be bold and stout hearted among the body of Christ!
 
11 The LORD will guide you always;
       he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
       and will strengthen your frame.
       You will be like a well-watered garden,
       like a spring whose waters never fail.
 12 Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins
       and will raise up the age-old foundations;
       you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls,
       Restorer of Streets with Dwellings. Isaiah 58:11-12
I find it interesting that the underlined is capitalized;
Repairer of Broken Walls,
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess for he who promised is faithful.
 And let us consider now we may spur one another on towards love and good deeds.10:23-24
     
Restorer of Streets with Dwellings:
…the tongue of the wise brings healing. Proverbs 12:18
Jesus states; but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst.
 Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” John 4:14

Godly Confidence is Christ in you:
Be Confident your confidence is from God through Christ, it is in him alone! Halleluiah!
So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you received what he has promised.  For just in a little while, “He who is coming will come and will not delay. But my righteous one will live by faith. And if he shrinks back I will not be pleased with him. But he (Your Precious Daughters in Christ) are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed but of those who believe and are saved.  Hebrews 10:35-39
Yes Beloved Saints it is all about Kingdom Business; all that you do all that you are.
You are a fragrance pleasing to the Lord and to those whom are not saved along with those whom truly know him and earnestly seek him diligently-
For we (Your Precious Daughters in Christ) are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing.  2 Corinthians 2:15

Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,
Love in Christ,

God’s Word – And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:17

Encouragement Shared:
Our competence and confidence come from Him who saved us.  Our competence does not come from ourselves it is given by God so that we do not have confidence in our flesh.  Scripture States: Such confidence as this is ours through Christ before God. Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God. He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant—not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.  2 Corinthians 3:4-6 

The encouragement for today my sisters is to commit all your plans to God and your plans will succeed.  [Proverbs 16:3] Commit whatever you do in action, and in speech to the Lord Jesus… and give thanks to God the Father in all circumstance.  Watch and see the good fruit that will grow in doing so.

 

 

 

Prayer:
Heavenly Father,
We marvel at the works of your hands…they are marvelous to us.  We thank you for the many victories you bring; we thank you for the gift of Jesus.  We will speak up-lifting words that will encourage one another daily, because of the deceitfulness of our sins.  Help us to repent and forgive quickly through you redeeming grace. whatever we do, whether in word or deed, we will be faith filled to do it all in the name of our Lord Jesus, giving thanks to you God the Father through you who has qualified us to received eternal life through Christ. We thank you for the advance answers to all our prayers put before your throne of Grace… In Jesus name we pray…Amen!

Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,
Love in Christ,
Jennifer Pettiford

j0289303God’s Word – the person who sows generously will also reap generously… 1 Corinthians 9:6
Encouragement Shared:
Paul writes to the church of Corinth; …Do not give gifts grudgingly; God loves a cheerful giver- [1Corinthians 9]   I have had the wonderful pleasure of working in retail my second year.  I genuinely enjoy working with people face to face.  I smile and only through God’s strength, I do my best to help and assist all who come to me.  Most of the time people are lovely and gracious. Then there are minority; angry, bitter and resentful.  I always try to see the brighter side if you will.  In today’s economic climate we make the definitive choices as Christians to trust and believe all that the Lord says to us through his word of truth or not to believe and live in financial panic…  more…
