What's Next By Nina Keegan

We were never meant to be ordinary!
God's love and God's mercy and God's unending favor and blessings are never swayed, deterred, or thwarted by a certain set of circumstances…
He is God!… He is the God of all things possible!… Is there anything that He cannot do? God can change things in a nanosecond if He wanted to… We have to think about what He knows, what He sees, the big picture in all of it… his plans for us are so much greater than anything we could ever fathom for ourselves.. What does God care about above all else? The hearts and souls of His people!… God is concerned about the inside of us first… Our hearts!…
What are our hearts saying at this moment? 
God understands frustration, God understands anger… But the Word says in our anger we are to sin not!… We are called to be salt and light… No matter what persecution, no matter what lies, evil, or hateful words come against us ... since the beginning of time there has been a battle between good and evil… God has already fought this evil and won! His name is JESUS! We have the ability and the power through Jesus our Lord and Savior to quench every fiery dart the enemy throws our way… we have the power to cancel every assignment of the devil ..We are overcomers through the blood of the lamb and the word of our testimony… The world doesn't happen to us, God's people… We happen to the world!… When we as Christians walk into a room, darkness trembles… We need to remember who's we are and the power that we have in Christ Jesus…

When Jesus died on the cross, His blood shed forgave all of our sins and washed us completely clean.. This selfless act of pure unconditional love insured us that our past, present, and even future sins were forgiven… The unimaginable and unfathomable painstaking death He embraced so selflessly on that cross was so all of us could be redeemed.. so that we could choose Him and live for eternity with Him,  we deserve none of this!... Oh the wisdom and the power of His grace! So often we forget that it wasn't just about the blood of Jesus on the cross… But,  it was also about the resurrection! … It was about the power that would be bestowed upon us through a relationship with the risen Christ who walked out of that tomb three days later... it is the power we now all possess through the resurrection! Many of us are living in that dark Friday of the crucifixion and we have not fully understood and recognized that we also have available to us what comes on Sunday… It's time to let the stone be rolled away from our self appointed tombs of despair, condemnation and unanswered prayers… It's breakthrough time!

So what does that mean for us? That means that we take up our cross and we follow Him ... I for one want to follow HIM so closely that I don't want one inch of space to be between us… Grab the hem of His garment...Hold on!  We must go light up this world with the word of God, we shall be a witness..  we shall testify, we will bring God's anointed glory with us wherever we go! 
It is God's will that we purposefully and intentionally pay attention to all that He has in store for us and yes, Go!! Go into all the earth!!… And all the earth for you and me is also our neighborhoods, communities and the people we interact with each and every day… 

Are we being the best representation of Christ? 

Let's ask the Lord to show us any places in our hearts that we need to let the Holy Spirit move in a way that will gently convict and bring to the surface these very things that are holding us back and causing us to look more like the world than looking like the image of Jesus… let's ask for revelation for what's holding us back from having all the victories that the Word promises us we can have … Oh the power that we will walk in when we have finally surrendered it all and let God take it all over…  We have to give God something to work with...  When we direct our attention to Him and let Him direct and order our every step in beautiful blind faith ... A brilliant trust emerges ... Then we will have given way for miracles to happen!… This is the precipice we have reached… It's time to get out of our own way... it's time to let our hearts be cleansed with the powerful love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ… It's time to walk in complete  victory.. it's time to forget our grievances and cast all of our cares… We are in the world but not of the world! We have a mandate, we have a mission!… Take up your cross and follow Him!
God's glory, signs and wonders will be with us like never before… We are all here for such a time as this… There is a greater Esther anointing for those who will not shrink back in fear… God's unchanging and definitive Word stands… The reply of the tongue shall come from Him… We are His vessels… Empty, willing, and ready to be filled up and overflowing with Him and the power and the deliberate purpose we have through seeking Him first in all things!
Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty who was, who is, and who is to come!… He has not changed, He has not left His powerful throne, His word will never change, God will never change His mind… His plan was perfect the first time… That is only what we seek, that's what we want… Nothing but the love of Jesus… Let's set about loving others, let's set about doing what God has called us to do… Let's not be distracted… Let's set our face like flint! Go!… You are an ambassador for Christ! I pray a fresh anointing ..I pray you will feel the presence of God like you've never felt before.. I Pray for God's wisdom and favor to surround you like a shield… And I pray that we will all live, sleep, and breathe the Word of God.. and I pray for a complete submission to the Holy Spirit as we navigate the times ahead!
And that we step out in faith in obedience to accomplish all that God's heart desires of us! 

Wherever you walk, I pray God's glory goes before you and that you will shine bright like the firmament… Get ready… Everything until now has been in preparation for what God wants to do in your life… Overwhelming victory is ours in Christ Jesus…!
Glory hallelujah our redemption draws near… Rise and shine oh sleeper… God is on the move!!

Love and blessings to you all!
