Glory Seed Devotionals, 2015: Year of Promise
Words of Jesus for you…
“The word is right here and now–as near as the tongue in your mouth, as near as the heart in your chest. Just do it! Look at what I’ve done for you today: I’ve placed in front of you Life and Good, Death and Evil. And I command you today: Love GOD, your God. Walk in his ways. Keep his commandments, regulations, and rules so that you will live, really live, live exuberantly, blessed by GOD, your God…” (Deuteronomy 30:14-16 MSG)
There can be no doubt you live in a world filled with voices each claiming to be the Word. But as you search for me your Loving Savior you must listen to your heart not with your ears. The voices you hear with your ears may sound convincing but they are not authentic. External voices come with a quick fix plan that circles the difficulties and adversity’s pounding in your life but they will lead you nowhere. Many years ago through the prophet Jeremiah I spoke the following message in the heat of my people that message is for you as well.
“I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out–plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for. When you call on me, when you come and pray to me, I’ll listen. When you come looking for me, you’ll find me. Yes, when you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else, I’ll make sure you won’t be disappointed. I’ll turn things around for you.” (Jeremiah 29:11-14 MSG)
I know it is hard for you to believe in something you cannot experience with your 5 senses but when you look deep in your heart and get serious about having a relationship with me so my plans can come together in your life you will begin to sense the Holy Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit that speaks to your heart all of my messages to you. Do not see your doubts as a lack of faith instead see them as a stairway into the depths of my heart.
You may think you are chained to the difficulties and adversities now holding and choking you but I have freed you from them. I have so many blessings to give you, not just external blessings but spiritual blessings and even eternal blessings as well. Jump into my arms and I will catch you and I will carry you until you can walk beside me yourself.
Believe! Anticipate! Experience! Be transformed!
Grace and PEACE, Amen!

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13 LEB)
