From the Pulpit & Into the Garden: "Grow Where You are Planted – Scatter Seeds of Inspiration!"

Steadfast Courage & Strength

“I will lead you out of darkness and into the Light. Stand strong and tall.”

Is there Light at the end of the tunnel? How do we get there? How does one harness the spiritual power to keep on moving when the going gets tough?

When your faith is tested, let steadfastness have its full effect. So, let it grow and as your endurance is developed, you will be complete, needing nothing. (Ja.1)

We come to the realization that God is in charge and can co-create a partnership that allows his strength to come forth and cover us, “Stand firm. Let nothing shake you. Be full of energy for the work of the Lord.” (1 Cor.)

Prepare to follow a newly charted course; pray and affirm divine order. Call on Shalom Nissi, the God who offers strength.

 “Finally, build up your strength in union with the Lord and by means of his mighty power.” (Eph. 6)

Give thanks, dear friends, God is at work. Be steadfast in faith. Let the power of the Shekinah Spirit flow through you.

“Keep what is written in the holy book on your lips and in your heart, at all times. Recite it day and night, so that you will be sure to do all that it says. Only then will you be successful on your journey; only then will you act with wisdom. I am telling you: Be strong and courageous. Don’t be afraid. Don’t be dismayed or discouraged for your God is with you wherever you go.” (Josh.1)

God’s Refuge and Strength

“You are my rock and my fortress.”

From the beginning of the new season up to this moment, a pattern of growth has been emerging in the midst of darkness.

During prayer, I received a vision of a sprout pushing up through the earth; reflecting God’s strength in times of need, even when life happens or we miss a step or two.

There is strength in the divine that we cannot see. When the tide of life pushes against us and the rain comes down, the little stalk may appear to look as though it won’t survive the battle, “Don’t let anyone intimidate you.”

“Not a single sparrow falls to the ground without God’s knowledge.”

We can take comfort that this is a temporary situation that will not last the rest of our lifetime, “What I tell you in darkness, speak it in the Light.”

The sun will come out from behind the clouds and the ground will dry a bit, “Nothing is hidden that will not be made known.”

During this transformation that cannot be seen on the outside; the little sprout emerges into a plant. It will once again reach up to its source, as a child would reach out looking to hold the hand of a loving being, “All that springs to life, your peace presence brings.”*

“God your Light is greater than the brightest star. Your Spirit awakens all things.”*
