Yesterme, Yesteryou, Yesterday

“Yesterme, yesteryou, yesterday” …Are you the same person you were yesterday? I’m not and I’m pretty sure you’re not either. And I’ve got to say that my faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is the thing that keeps making me brand new.  I’ve disocve4rd that there is new life in the word of God.  When Father sends one of His alive words that says “Behold, old things are passed away, all things are new”, I get excited. I always welcome the changes he brings because I know that all he does is good.  It’s all because of the love of the Lord. I’m learning that there’s always more beyond who we were in our yesterdays. And where we are now. I’m learning by experience that these new things God keeps announcing are to be welcomed with open arms. Always new wisdom to walk in ways that bring new strength to my heart. And accompanied by a new thought process. A new mindset and better God perceptions. A deeper death to the old selflife and a new resurrection. From one faith and glory into a new one. Yet, only because of his mercy that keeps us small in our own eyes.

Isn’t it amazing how we just keep meeting up with a new us and a new them and the lessons we learned along our way to this place are so valuable? And how it is that now we can teach others more effectively about the power, power, wonder working power of the blood of Jesus?

In every season of life, we need to be committed
to enlarging our personal capacity—even when it’s not comfortable.
We need to refuse to be satisfied with our latest accomplishments,
as what we’ve accomplished is no longer our potential
because it has been realized.
―A Life Unleashed

Trust In Every Season

Even in the Lord, no day is perfect and we don’t always respond to all that happens perfectly. But we need to realize that there are perfect things happening through him in every day. Every moment he is at work seeking our good. Growing up into our high calling as ministers of grace is not always easy. We miss the mark and we grieve. We might find that because of our lack of true God knowledge our trust has been misplaced and our hearts get broken. But restoration is available. We seek deeper and we find a better way and we recover. We soon discover that each new level brings an increase of his nearness. Trials are bitter but lessons learned can be sweet and lasting. Through trial and error we learn to set our expectations in the reality of him rather than in external things. We live and hopefully we learn. Every negative thing is an opportunity to trust and become spiritually wiser as he carries us through his times and seasons processes. We learn to hold fast to the sweet knowledge that He is always at work to perfect all that concerns the sincere devoted hearts of his righteous ones. Slowly but surely we will grow into a purified vessel made fit by the Master for the Master’s use. We humble ourselves under his mighty hand and he leads us along according to his will. Living in the light of his love is the joy of the high calling.
