Message from Natasha:
I want to apologize for not staying up on my posts. I haven’t been feeling to well and haven’t focused my days on my posts, as I should. I will however be posting for the days missed because we never know when we need to go back and reflect, or search deep for something…anything.
I received today’s message and instead of searching for my own scripture to pray and reflect upon, I chose to follow my heart and gut and post this one instead. It rings true for me and hit deep. Please share it with others after you have had chance to study and pray. God bless you all!
Stay Focused on What He Can Do
“Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith…”
Hebrews 12:2, NKJV
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
In John Chapter 4, Jesus met a Samaritan woman at a well. He asked her for something to drink. She was a little surprised because in those days the Jews didn’t have anything to do with the Samaritans. She said, “How can you ask me for something to drink?” Jesus said, “If you knew who I am, you would ask of Me, and I would give you Living Water.
She immediately began to look in the natural. She said, “But, sir, you don’t have anything to draw water with. You don’t have any kind of bucket or pail. How can you give me living water?”
How many times do people do the same thing today? God tells us He is going to do something great in our lives, and we start looking at things in the natural, and before long, we talk ourselves out of it! But we have to remember, God can take something that is ordinary, breathe on it and turn it into something that’s extraordinary.
With God, all things are possible! Don’t just look at things in the natural, look at the greatness of God. Stay focused on what He can do and embrace all He has for you!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father, today I lift my eyes off of my circumstances and set my focus on You. I know that with You, all things are possible. Show me Your ways. Show me Your love and all of the good things You have prepared for me in Jesus’ name. Amen.
