KEEP BELIEVING!

Today's affirmation from A Year In The Now...



"[For Abraham, human reason for] hope being gone, hoped on in faith that he should become the father of many nations, as he had been promised . . . ."
(Romans 4:18 – AMP)



Today I will live in the now! I will live in the now because my ability to walk by faith and not by sight enables me to dare to do what hasn't been done before. God has called me to be a pioneer and a visionary, so I must keep believing, no matter what things look like in the natural realm. The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy, and His witness in my inner man propels me to fulfill all the prophecies spoken over my life!


Today I will repent of any religious attitudes that remain in me, refusing to revere the past, as I recognize new realms of revelation. I make the decision to live this day in the now, because no matter what report I hear from the religious, who are rebellious to the realities of Christ, I realize that these are the good "new" days, and they are getting better, because the best is yet to come!


Today I will not be afraid of the radical change that comes from living in the now. The fire that is shut up in my bones is ignited by the Holy Ghost, and He is effective in all of His endeavors to establish and enlighten me.


Today I will keep believing as I see the plan for my life unfold. Even if I don't know the next step to take, I remember that Abraham went out, not knowing where he was going (Hebrews 11:8), so I move with God in faith and trust for His moment-by-moment direction. In Him I move.


Today I will listen for God's voice, for faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God!


Today I will meditate His Word, in an effort to locate the gifts of faith which He has imparted to me.



Today I will be glad that change is on the horizon, and that I am not frozen in time so that I am unable to accept it. Today, when I pray, "Let Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven," I will really mean it from the bottom of my heart – I will pray it in faith! I want heaven to change this earth, and I will continue in my believing to see that God's Word is performed in my surroundings. Even if everybody else in the world gives up on their faith today, I will keep on keeping on, because I have come too far to turn back now! Today my faith will put me over, and today I will live in the now!


By faith, in Jesus’ name, I will keep believing today!

These are compelling images to go with today's affirmation...especially along with Chris Tomlin's "How Great is Our God" that surrounded the atmosphere as I pondered these...

First look: I like the way the first images look like irises...with their changing perspectives...

There's a lot here...

more later, Blog fam.

We do what has not been done before. Today is a celebration of that.

We are propelled to fulfill the prophecies spoken over each of Us.

This realm is new and real, and fun!

The Holy Ghost, She is effective and ignites Us fully. The plan for our coming together unfolds with clarity today. Our faith is ratified today.

God speaks particularly today, her words reverberate in Us and Our worship today.

We are the horizon. We change this Earth today. How fun !!!!!
