The daily devotional I provide on this online publication is an opportunity to learn how God is instructing you on your faith walk. I also provide additional resources for the women who are members of VWL Community. Join us for a 40 day Spiritually Fit For Life Empowerment Journey where we focus on strengthening the whole person to awaken our awareness of the fulfillment of God’s promises in our relationships, health, career and lifestyle.
When we allow ourselves to say yes to God. Yes to His will and yes to His way, He promises to direct us in the path of His blessing. The word of God tells us in Psalms 32:8,” I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye. God’s eye is the gate to His heavenly vision that includes the vision of our wholeness. God desires that we be strengthened in the mind of Christ so we may be able to handle with love all that He entrust to our care. The word of God tells us in Ephesians 4:23, “and be renewed in the spirit of your mind”. The Spirit of our mind is where our new man resides that is our new identity in Christ. God wants to instruct, teach and guide us out of the blindness, darkness and ignorance of our own understanding into His presence on a continuous moment by moment basis that becomes a decision by decision basis.
God not only has a vision of wholeness for our own lives, but He wants us to walk out that vision of wholeness where it becomes evident in our relationship with Him, our relationship with people, our health and everyday lifestyle. When His vision overflows into our everyday lifestyle we know it is because our mind, spirit, soul and body is full of His presence. When we are full of God’s presence He directs our thoughts, feelings, desires and emotions as we decide to walk it out in our lives where we bear evidence of the presence of His Holy Spirit who lives in us.Our bodies are the temple of God because we house His mind, spirit and soul in us. The more His mind, Spirit and Soul in us is awakened we are strengthened in His presence where the presence of our carnal mind decreases and the presence of the mind of Christ increases. When we seek the Lord’s presence, and allow our whole person to enter His presence, we will lack no good desire. Psalms 34:10 tells us, “The young lions lack and suffer hunger; but those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing. The Lord promises us in Psalms 34:22, “The Lord redeems the soul of His servants, and none of those who trust in Him shall be condemned.
Remember, there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus, the redeemer of our mind, spirit, soul and body. Psalms 33:20 tells us, “Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. For our heart shall rejoice in Him, because we have trusted in His Holy Name. God wants us to wait on His instruction so He can continually direct us in the path of life and blessings where our faith will become evident to us and the world to see (Hebrews 11:1).
Read Ephesians 4:17-32 and make it apart of your next devotional worship experience. Stay the course and endure. Do not grow weary when doing good because in due season, we will reap if we faint not. It is time to reap in every area of our lives that we have been trusting God in. Our endurance will take us across the finish line of our faith, where our faith becomes evident and we will rest in our reward. The reward of a peaceful soul and a lifestyle of blessings.
