Month 3 Day 1: Welcome to May!! Let’s start as we mean to go on and return to the fact that today we can renew our minds…! Let’s return to confessing His word over our lives, so here are a few to get us going!! Out of our hearts our mouth speaks!! I…
Such a beautiful Accord meeting today so grateful for our community and the way God chooses to speak to and through us!! Today, let’s meditate on how He wants to do all things in us!! Remember….Whatever you need to change in your life, HE needs to do it inside us and then it manifests on the…
When we strive in our own flesh we are in danger of doing things He has not asked of us! Our acceptance is not based on works but on our heart! He just wants us…..SELAH X
As we get ready to move into a new month.. Let’s take a moment to focus on more of Him and less of us! I know we have focused on this a lot recently but let’s ask the Lord to show us what the reality of that in our own personal life looks like! We…
If you are frustrated with yourself…. Use that to get to a new place of articulation and honesty with Him!
Rest in what He has made you….Selah 💖
There is nothing that we have to go through that He doesn’t provide grace for to get us through it!! When we stop “trying” in our own strength and let His grace enable us…. There is a reward….
Here are a few things to think on today regarding our mind! We have looked at how to deal with our minds this month so now is a great day to stop and check ourselves out!! How is your mind doing? 💗
Today is the day to stop and realise who you are in Him!! Remember anything that is not real is not you!! Time to be confident in your identity given by His Word and build authentic things from the truth of who you are!!!
Today let’s remember that we don’t know who we are until we read His word! He defines us and the labels we attach to ourselves and others can damage us! What labels do you need to change that you have attached to yourself and others?
We can choose what we want to think, that is our choice! We know that it is within our ability to take every thought captive and refuse to let our thoughts turn into behaviours that take us off the path. How are you doing with your thoughts? His grace is sufficient for us as we…
Our delight is in the ways of the Lord and we need to meditate upon them! To meditate means “to brood over, to design, to intend, to track, to decide with a view to obtain something.” As we are looking at the simplicity of making the right choices in Him, how is your meditation on…
It’s this simple! Make the choice and do it by faith accessing His grace that enables us to see it through!
Anyone been distracted recently? Great news! We can choose life and take off the things that took us off the path and put on the new mind through faith that pleases Him and takes us closer! 💞 He strengthens us through giving us His grace and we take it, and change by faith!!!#verygrateful #Don’tletyourmindcomplicateit!
He is doing a NEW thing in us! It is not a better or upgraded life, it is completely new and we have not lived it before! Today is the day to trust Him and walk into that new life and not return to the old because it’s familiar or comfortable! New wine has to…
As we have looked at His grace over time, we should be confident now to understand how living in Him works! Those things we struggle with in life can be changed by His grace as He enables us to put off old ways and put on new ways. Ephesians 4 explains it as ‘putting on’…
Lord! Enable me today to fill the space you have created! (excuse the windswept look… Spring hasn’t realised its supposed to be in Wales yet!)
Let’s make sure we read the verses around this Scripture today, it will give us an indication of how we delight ourselves in Him!! How do you think you delight yourself in the Lord? What does that look like to you?
As we look at our heart, let’s enquire and seek out what pleases Him in this season! I want to live His preferences not mine, but I need to ask Him what brings Him delight and not guess it!! If anyone needs wisdom…. Ask for it! 💖
As we are looking at our heart, let’s not forget a really important thing.. Let’s not run away with our own desires and whims, commit (give) Him what is in our heart and don’t take it back! Also…. Careful who you share your heart with!! 💖
I love this soooooo much 💖 1 Chronicles 29 v 10-18…..”you test my heart and find integrity” Amen! When we give willingly to Him with intent He is pleased! What are you giving him willingly with intent from your heart in this season?
As we hope in him, our hearts change and we are then able to experience strength and certainty in Him! What is your heart filled with? important stuff that enables us to walk closely with Him or trivial things that keep us bound to this earth? A clue here is that out of the 💚 the…
Hope comes when we wait upon Him, our hope then enables His faith in us, this enables us to access His grace, and His grace enabled us to walk out his ways not ours! So…….
Wow….what a journey we have been on together in accord! From looking at His grace and our hope which enables us to wait upon Him so we know how to do things His way! I was reminded of this song today and as you worship Him, ask Him to show you more and more…
Waiting on Him with hope! wow…..what does this look like to you? How do you wait on Him?
Looking at hope makes us stop and check ourselves. Are there areas of your life you feel hopeless in still? Now is the time to approach Him boldly and give it to Him! He is our portion! He satisfies us! He is our hope!
My hope is in you Lord! Is your hope strong in Him? Remember…..hope enables faith to come!
Our hopes enables our faith….what are your hopes? Take them to Him and enquire of the Lord!! Let faith arise in you and know He holds your future!
Just because…….HE’S ALIVE!! Let’s not forget the reason why we have that amazing grace that is the answer to all things!
Today, let’s return to the very beginnings of Accord and meditate on the fact that we are new creations and that the old really is gone! We are not striving for a “better, improved” life, or an “upgrade”! He is calling us higher for a whole new life in Him! 💖
Dr Noel Woodroffe is teaching here that you have to be living what is in your heart…if your heart is not the same as your actions that is not OK! Time for a reality check…. Are you living what God is downloading into your heart or are you just talking the talk?! Let’s enquire…
Write on me again Lord! Give Him a blank page today! Forget the past and know everything is new every day!
Just love this worship from our global Congress family….you have brought us here….we will do everything you have asked us to do….use it as a prayer and show your gratitude for our joining together as a community
He is our Comfort not our fleshy ways! How does He help us leave our own comfort and enter His.. The answer is in these scriptures!
Don’t lose a minute building what you’ve been given …. and we will we grow into maturity, commit yourself to Him today and ask for wisdom to build!
To finish the week, who does HE say we are? Remember, we don’t know who we are until we read HIS word! HE defines us! Have a great day thanking Him for who HE says we are!
Faith has to have an environment of correct action in order to work! We know that faith without works (correct response to His ways because we have heard Him, not our works … effort, busyness, striving, good ideas!) is dead! It’s time to step out of your comfort zone and hear Him saying “come up…
Guarding our hearts can eliminate all the drama we get sucked into at times! Everything we do flows from our heart the same as it flows from His heart to us Intimacy comes from being authentic … the more we are in Him, the more nonsense slips away because we are enjoying intimacy with Him!…
What is He teaching you right now to enable you to be led to level ground? Don’t you love this? He can take us off that rocky path that trips us up and as He teaches us what we need, we are led to stable, secure, level ground! Thank you Father!
“His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness” … 2 Peter 1v3. We have everything we need for life as we keep living in the truth not the law!
As we look at pleasing the Lord not by our works (efforts, energy, good ideas) but living in His grace and doing things His way, what “enemies” (mentalities, beliefs, ideas, thoughts) will He make peace with you in?
As we move from a position of grace . . . Let’s look at what please God! Grace enables us to work with Him as we are led by His ways not our own ways! Let’s start this week asking, enquiring of the Lord what is pleasing to Him IN THIS MOMENT (SEASON). James 1v5…
As we move on next week from Grace remember as we receive His grace, we give His grace! Hope He has spoken to you over the last 3 weeks on Grace! So much more than we thought or hoped for! 💖
Grace is love that cost everything……selah!
We are coming to the end of our focus on God’s grace, what do you learn from this skit? I loved it and saw clearly a few things that I needed to be reminded of!
This song has carried me through so many things in my journey! Listen to it and meditate on the fact that He will make a way for us! He will do the impossible through impossible means! What was not possible before will be possible in the now!! THANK YOU FATHER!….YOUR WAYS!!!
Titus 1v11 For the grace of God teaches us to say no to ungodliness and worldly passions, and enables us to live self controlled, upright, and Godly lives in this present age. His grace is sufficient for us! His grace is our teacher!
Is there a chasm between your identity in Christ and the life you live?
We can’t do it, He does it! What is God speaking to you about in your life that He needs to take over from you? ASK Him!
To end this week, look at Psalm 18 . . . WOW!! What do you see from this?
