SPRING FORTH NOW 2023
Beware that thou forget not the LORD thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day: Lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein; And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied; Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the LORD thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage; Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint; Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end; And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth. But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the LORD thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish. As the nations which the LORD destroyeth before your face, so shall ye perish; because ye would not be obedient unto the voice of the LORD your God.
We are Empowered because we remember not only how God has opened up the way for us to move in life and life more abundantly, despite and in spite of our failings, but also what He has put inside of us. If we would choose to see the vile within us, the gifts and experiences God has allowed to flow from His Spirit to and for us, we would be able to face the adversities of our life from a position of strength, knowing that we have what it takes. The devil is a deceiver and his aim is to make you believe that what is against you is greater than what is in you and the One who is on your side, but he is a liar! You are more than a conqueror, even at your weakest point, for God will stand up in you, His strength made perfect in your weakness, you are Empowered by His Spirt, His strength, His power. You have a Most Favored Status and whatever you experience God has given you the ability, wealth, to achieve, navigate, and possess His promises for your life and life more abundantly!
