Fast Wednesdays: Week of June 10, 2015 – What God has 4U is 4U!

Greetings Beloved!
First, today’s Fast Wednesdays is dedicated to my “younger or little” sister, Stephanie Gail Fuller House (Sgt 1st Class, retired Army), and, in honor of her, THANKS TO ALL YOU VETERANS, may you be blessed mightily. Also, most of you know by now, I have started a new, incredible job, and I have not been as faithful with Fast Wednesdays on a weekly bases. So, for awhile during the next few months, I assure you I plan to be faithful and post at least once a month, and, I would love to hear from you…still looking for “guest bloggers, new topics, suggestions/recommendation, etc…”

Based on today’s subject, What God has 4U is 4U, is something I am proclaiming for us all. Though I totally and thoroughly feel complete in this new job, there’s naturally a learning curve, with lots of transition and transformation going on for me. Over the last month or so, so much so, that I have questioned myself as to why didn’t I just stay in my old comfortable job and remain in my comfort zone, experiencing status quo, until I retire or IBM retires me? Would have been very easy especially after 37 years with the same company. There’s different, new pressures, team mates, overtime hours, grueling problems, and the works.

However, yesterday, the light bulb came on and it was as clear as a whistle, What God has 4U is 4U! Yes, I may be struggling learning new systems, new processes, when to be silent and when to shout, but this is the job I desired for years. And, my God, would never bring me this far and leave me…can I get an AMEN somebody?

So, I encourage you all, because I’m doing, be steadfast and unmovable in your desires and dreams, only stop if God tells you to or if the dream dies and you will know when that is because God is a SURE defense.

Below are our scriptures for today. Look at 2 Samuel 22:30 and Psalm 18:29 … this is a time in the bible when I say, this is surely noteworthy when the Bible (God) repeats the same phrase in at least two different places. Furthermore, I can get with this one … by my God have I leaped over a wall (Hallelujah)!

Let’s leap over those things that are trying to hold us down or stop us … for “We are Victorious!” Stop Warring, Wresting, and Worrying … this is our season for Winning … smoothly and effortlessly … if you want to do anything in this season that takes effort, how about PRAISING GOD … that one will definitely get his attention and open up the treasures in heaven for you. “In worship, our hunger for God is both satisfied and increased. In His Presence, we desire “all the fullness of God” and we want to be done with sin, we want the church purified, and we long for the return of Christ. We are homesick for heaven.” Erwin Lutzer

SCRIPTURES:

Psalm 48:3 New English Translation (NET Bible)God is in its fortresses; he reveals himself as its defender.

*2 Samuel 22:30King James Version (KJV) 30 For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall.

*Psalm 18:29 King James Version (KJV)29 For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.

2 Corinthians 12:9 King James Version (KJV)And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

PRAYER:
Dear Lord, we thank you today for life itself. We thank you for oxygen, birds singing, creative thoughts and the ability to reason. We ask that you would bless the graduates and our Men for Father’s Day and every day. Equip both groups with what they need to be successful in your sight and we will give you all praises, glory and honor. Amen.

Love, Joy and Peace, 

Debra J. Ellis

Reminder AND/OR for those of you just joining us: The purpose of Fast Wednesdays is to draw near to God on this specific day of the week fasting and praying in whatever manner the Holy Spirit is leading you as sisters (and some brothers) in Christ…some have fasted from social media, coffee, or observed a traditional fast with no eating from sunrise to sunset with only liquids for the day, no deserts, etc. I know many of us, for various reasons, participate every week but in different manners. This has still been beneficial and the blog continues to grow!

The key ingredient is that we are doing this together as sisters, of all ages, in the Lord, both chronologically and spiritually in accordance to: A God-Filled Life Titus 2:3-5 “Guide older women into lives of reverence so they end up as neither gossips nor drunks, but models of goodness. By looking at them, the younger women will know how to love their husbands and children, be virtuous and pure, keep a good house, be good wives. We don’t want anyone looking down on God’s Message because of their behavior.”  Note: Please share Fast Wednesdays with your friends and/or send me names to add to the distribution list. For now, I will post in three places: email (djf52055@gmail.com), Facebook (Debra Fuller Ellis) and blog in Word Press: https://fastwednesdays.wordpress.com/
