â€œâ€¦it is God who is at work within you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.â€
So far this year it has been wonderful to watch how the Holy Spirit works within us inspiring us with new desires, strengthening us to make decisions and painting new dreams and goals on the canvas of our hearts.
Someone shared with me this week a God-given picture of a hot air balloon firing up its gas-burner in order to rise to a greater height with a bigger vision and catch the jet-stream to travel further and faster. I can see that God is doing this in my own heart and in many casino online others in the church, as we catch His vision to reach out to the lost, launch a new small group, plan new overseas mission trips and explore new business and financial opportunities.
Our God is a big God and we are still only scratching the surface in understanding what He has already given to us through the resurrection of Jesus. The fact that Godâ€™s work of rescuing, saving, healing and providing for us has already been completely finished by Jesus, means that we can go forward into all that 2010 holds for us from a position of rest and peace.
â€œFor we are Godâ€™s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.â€ (Ephesians 2:10)
