Life Change – DAY 4

And evening passed and morning came, MARKING the fourth day. Genesis 1:19 It's day 4 already of a 6 day look at the life changing ‘MARKERS’ set down in Genesis 1 that have meaning for our own lives in 2013. God set these lights in the sky to light the earth, to govern the day and night, and to separate the light from the darkness. Genesis 1:17,18 DAY 4. If day 1 is about getting free, then day 4 is about living free.  On day 1 light and dark were separated.  On day 4 God placed something in the world that would maintain the separation of light and dark - the light of the sun and of the moon. Finding freedom from something destructive is clearly a landmark.  However, staying free and saying no to destructive temptation is equally a landmark moment in our lives.  We have been given pow

The Anointing

Isa.10:27NKJV The yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil The literal meaning of the word used for anointing here is 'fatness' or 'prosperity'. The need the Israelites had at that moment was for wealth. They had no means for living. The anointing will provide whatever you need at any given time. The anointing is an oil from the Holy Spirit that will cause life to flow better. If your sick there is an anointing for healing. If you are struggling at work there is an anointing that releases burdens and brings wisdom. The anointing will improve your marriage, your relationship with your children and your handling of a variety of life's situations. Seek God today. Get anointed!

A Shout

Isaiah 54:1,2 NIV "Sing, O barren woman, you who never bore a child; burst into song, shout for joy … 2 "Enlarge the place of your tent ... " Our solutions can sometimes be hidden in the last thing we want to do. Shouting for joy when your situation seems hopeless. Giving into a miracle offering when you barely have enough. Reaching out to help another in trouble when you yourself are desperately in need of help. But God knows what He is doing. He always knows how to get out of us what we need. Water was provided in the wilderness as the Israelites began to sing about it (Numbers 21). A barren woman gives birth to children as she begins to sing about it. A place is enlarged as she begins to shout for joy. Try it today. Shout for joy. The freedom in you can get blocked up by the stuff
