A New You

“Transformed by the Spirit” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

Ezekiel 36:26-27 (NLT) And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart. And I will put my Spirit in you so that you will follow my decrees and be careful to obey my regulations.

From the moment we chose Christ, Holy Spirit enters us and starts transforming us from glory to glory. “Glory to glory” means one step at a time. So be patient with the progress. Be gracious with yourself just as our heavenly Father is.

Our habits, our attitudes, our wrong choices will change with time. Once we get impregnated with the Holy Spirit, we have all of His gifts in us. However, just like a pregnant woman doesn’t show in the beginning stages of pregnancy, neither do we. It takes time and constant intimate pursuit with the Father that will start showing our growth and change into the beautiful being He intended for us to be.

The more we pursue Him, the more we fall in love with Him, which automatically makes us want to do the right thing simply because we love Him!

Speak Life (Ezekiel 37)

James 3:9-11 (VOICE) Ironically this same tongue can be both an instrument of blessing to our Lord and Father and a weapon that hurls curses upon others who are created in God’s own image. One mouth streams forth both blessings and curses. My brothers and sisters, this is not how it should be. Does a spring gush crystal clear freshwater and moments later spurt out bitter salt water?

Beloved, would you be a vessel for darkness? And yet the temptation to speak the things of darkness into existence is strong, but you are stronger. So refuse to give in to bitterness and anger, jealousy and hatred, greed and destruction. Look to the root that wants to bear such fruit and invite Me to move. Then as you trust My sovereignty, watch as I bring forth beauty from ashes and give joy for mourning. Continue reading “Speak Life (Ezekiel 37)”

Pour Out What Has Been Poured In 

Ezekiel 47:12 (VOICE) All kinds of trees will flourish along both sides of the river. Their leaves won’t wither, and their fruit won’t fail. Every month they will bear a fresh crop of fruit because they are nourished from the water that flows from the temple sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves will be for healing…

Beloved, stay close to the river. Stay close to My healing flow. Rest in My Spirit. I bring healing and wholeness. Flourish as you abide in Me. Be intentional to hover close. Hold Me tightly in your heart and carrying Me with you everywhere. As you know, I’m not a genie in a bottle to pull out when you need a favor. I AM God. 

I move in love. I respond in compassion. And as I bestow that love and compassion on you, and as you thrive in My presence, be prepared, beloved, to pour out what has been poured in. Be moved with compassion on those around you and minister to them too that they might prosper as well.

Flourish in My Healing Flow

Ezekiel 47:9 (NLT) There will be swarms of living things wherever the water of this river flows. Fish will abound in the Dead Sea, for its waters will become fresh. Life will flourish wherever this water flows.

Beloved, flourish in My healing flow. Watch as dead and dry places begin to burst forth in life. Nothing is impossible with Me, for I AM the God of the impossible. So embrace life and walk in truth. 

Stay in the flow. Refuse to step away. Once life has been found, why would you choose anything less. So feel My breath and be washed and revived by My Spirit, and let My healing flow have its way. 

The Power of One

Ezekiel 22:30 (VOICE) I searched for one man among them, a man who could build the wall and stand in the gap before Me and advocate for the land, a man who could convince Me not to destroy it; but I found no one.

Beloved, don’t underestimate the impact of one person, one voice. I am looking for one person to agree with My heart, let that be you. Stay tuned to My frequency. Let what moves Me, move you. Then respond accordingly. Trust My Spirit to lead.

The enemy will always seek for ways to silence and distract you, so keep your heart in tune with Mine and refuse to be silenced, refuse to be scattered, refuse to be moved. Never underestimate the power of one, the power you hold as you align with Me. Continue reading “The Power of One”
