And when he had removed him (Saul), he raised up David to be their king, of whom he testified and said, “I have found in David the son of Jesse a man after my heart, who will do all my will.” (Acts 13:22 ESV)
Happy New Year!
Seems excitement is in the air for 2019! I’m excited and looking forward to our church’s 21 day fast. A corporate fast uniting churches all over America and possibly beyond. Always three days after Christmas, I turn a year older. With every new year, a new perspective surfaces, especially if we seek one. This year I am seeking. As good as life has been, I do not want to settle. I want to be all that God has for me- how about you? Ready for a new perspective?
After God’s Own Heart
One of my friends shared a birthday wish, I believe this is an encouragement for us all. As she stated, “Remember, you were not getting older, you’re getting more like a woman after God’s own heart. He is transforming you with every day.” Gentlemen- substitute man after God’s own heart. There is no greater wish than to be known as a woman after God’s own heart. Elizabeth George’s book, A Woman After God’s Own Heart, is one to read. One of my friends, claims this book as life changing. If you’ve not read, now may be a good time.
What is your outlook for 2019? Perspective is defined as a particular attitude toward or way of regarding something, a point of view. Attitudes determine the Altitude is often quoted in my home. We have to adjust attitudes daily, and a few times for several of us. Imagine all possibilities having a positive attitude, while seeking Jesus to do His Will. To have a heart after God’s heart, we desire to serve God, becoming disciples studying The Bible, gaining scripture knowledge; engages new perspective. Knowledge develops wisdom and understanding. Amazing how a new perspective can change directions toward goodness, all God has for us to do.
King David did not become King instantly- time was spent developing skills, before God elevated him to King. This is true for us, too. A New Year, also Releasing Truth’s anniversary. It’s hard to believe beginning 6th year. Thank you! His Word is True- and must be released to prevent being deceived in midst of societal confusion. Over the last five years…we’ve seen much evolve. Best way to silence the devil, be a man/woman after God’s heart, fulfilling God’s Will.
