DECEMBER: A Month for Revelation

 

A MONTH FOR REVELATION

 

Tis the season

for

Celebration of the Incarnation (The Word made flesh)

and

Inspiration for the Imagination (The Womb of the spirit)…

The babe laid in a manger…

Emmanuel, the embodiment and earthly expression of the eternal God –

Is now revealed TO you as

Christ IN you,  the Hope of Glory,

Being revealed THROUGH you as the King of Kings…

Joy to the world,  the Lord is come, let earth receive her King!

Now the hopes and fears of all the years

Can be met in the miracles made possible by your meditation in the Word.

 

Why waste the season by just walking in a winter wonderland

when you could be giving birth to the impossible?

March 16: NO LIMITS!

manflying 

 

Yes, again and again they tempted God,

and limited the Holy One of Israel.  (Psalm 78: 41)

 

Now to Him Who…is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly,

far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think

[infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams].

(Ephesians 3:20 AMP)

 

1.       Today I will live in the now!  I will live in the now because, in Christ, there are no limits to the possibilities presented to my personal life.  Today I will EXPLORE NEW AREAS OF REVELATION KNOWLEDGE!  God desires to unfold His mysteries to me, so He will reveal the depths of His Word to me as I study and meditate the Scriptures under the anointing of the Holy Spirit.

 

2.       Today I will EXPOSE MYSELF TO THE SUPERNATURAL!  All nine Gifts of the Spirit are available to any believer who has been baptized in the Holy Spirit, so I will operate in the gift (or gifts) necessary for today’s tasks.

 

3.       Today I will EXPRESS MY FAITH BY A GOOD CONFESSION!  My heartfelt and sincere words of faith will create an atmosphere that is conducive to the miraculous today.  I believe, and therefore I speak (2 Corinthians 4:13).

 

4.       Today I will EXPEL THE WORD “IMPOSSIBLE” FROM MY VOCABULARY!  Since Christ dwells in my heart by faith (Ephesians 3:17), I cannot afford to speak antichrist words such as “I can’t;” “It will never work out;” “we can’t afford it;” “things just keep getting worse;”  “I’m scared to death;” “there is no way”…!

 

5.       Today I will EXPAND MY CAPACITY TO BELIEVE FOR THE MIRACULOUS!  I will wean myself off my dependence on natural things, because such dependence (as Abraham and Sarah depended on the natural womb of Hagar to produce a supernatural seed) only creates an incapacity to believe.

 

6.       Today I will EXPERIENCE THE DEEP THINGS OF GOD!  I will maintain a high level of praise and worship until my being is flooded with His actual presence.

 

7.       Today I will EXPECT SIGNS AND WONDERS TO BECOME A WAY OF LIFE!  Today I am prepared for anything and everything, and today I will live in the now!

 

Father, help me to remember today that there are no limits to Your power

and ability in my life.  In Jesus’ name, amen.
