appy Monday Atlanta! I hope that everyone had a great weekend!
Atlanta: Do you have your priorities aligned in the will of the LORD for 2019? What is it that you desire for God to do in your life? The Word of God is very clear in this particular Scripture:
~” “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.”~Matthew 7:7-8, English Standard Version~
Atlanta: What doors do you want Father God to open up in your life in 2019? Is there one door that you are eagerly asking, seeking, and knocking on Heaven’s Gates in God’s Kingdom or are there many doors that you want God to open up for you, dear reader?
Yesterday, I attended the morning church service at my church, First Baptist Church of Atlanta, and the senior associate pastor of the church, Dr. Anthony George preached a message that touched my heart. In the message, he made this statement:
~”The right focus brings real freedom.”~Dr. Anthony George~
~”The right focus brings real freedom.”~Dr. Anthony George, senior associate pastor of First Baptist Church of Atlanta~
When Dr. George made this statement, it pressed my mind to think deeper about my priorities for this new year of 2019. It challenged me with this question that I asked myself: Are my priorities for God one or many?
After listening to this message yesterday, I looked over my sermon notes this morning and the LORD showed me that I need to seek Him and the fruits of His Kingdom in order for me to answer this question.
The Word of God has the power to grant me discernment. The Word of God has the power to free me from the previous thought patterns of 2018 so that I can live out as a new creation in the eternal realm in 2019. The Word of God can do all of these things for you too, dear reader, if you press and lean into Immanuel the King.
The Word of God can do all of these things for you too, dear reader, if you press and lean into Immanuel the King.
~” For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.”~Hebrews 4:12, New Living Translation~
~”But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”~Matthew 6:33, New International Version~
~”So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”~John 8:36, New International Version~
Dear reader: all that you have to do is press into God so that His Holy Spirit can show you how to live out your best in 2019, in the Name of Jesus Christ.
Atlanta: Jesus commissioned you to carry out the Gospel of Jesus Christ from this great city in the United States of America to other nations of the world. Do not give up on the LORD God in 2019 because Jehovah never gave up on pursuing you, Atlanta, in the Name of Jesus Christ.
Atlanta: We were made to be disciples. We were created to make disciples of Atlanta and to baptize her in the Name of Father God, Jesus Christ, and His Holy Spirit. I AM is with Atlanta in the midst of God’s Commission for Atlanta, in the Name of Jesus Christ.
~”Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”~Matthew 28:19-20, New International Version~
Atlanta: Run the race with endurance and do not stop until Jesus says, “It is finished! Well done good and faithful servant!” God bless you!
