Weekend Devo — Time to Worship

My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. — 2 Corinthians 12:9

Something's happening. Over a week's time, God showed me 2 Corinthians 12:9 at least five times, the last at a conference I was at last weekend, given in a moving devotional by a doctor who's a missionary in Africa.

Now these verses have shown up repeatedly in multiple places, and not just for me. Several people have been led to at least one of these verses. Lynn used Isaiah 43:19 in Monday's post introducing The Mind of Christ journey, and let me tell you, she and I hadn't even talked specifically yet. I was floored to see this verse  yet again.

For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? — Isaiah 43:19 (NLT)

For I am doing something in your own day, something you wouldn't believe even if someone told you about it. — Habakkuk 1:5 (NLT)

So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. — 1 Peter 5:6 (NLT)

These Scriptures have meant so much to me personally this last week. Yet I believe this goes beyond one person's interpretation. God seems to be moving in a mighty way, on the verge of revealing something very real and personal to each of us.

Below is a video of the Revelation Song sung by Kari Jobe of Gateway Worship. This is one of the songs we worshiped to at that conference the final day. During it, I heard God say, "Watch what I do" repeatedly.

I hope you'll play it with the intention of soaking in our wonderful Savior Jesus and his amazing holiness. Let's prepare our hearts for this thirty day journey to put Christ on the throne of our lives and to truly have the mind of Christ.

I don't want to miss what God's about to do. I hope you don't either.

Praying and believing,
Dineen

Lynn has wonderfully mapped out the steps we all need to walk through to develop and grow this vital relationship with Him. This was the Lord’s intent for her transformation journey all along, and His intent for you too. Here she has spelled out the spiritual truths behind the principles and talked us through how she applied them. These truths are universally applicable to us all, though as the details of our lives, situations and hearts will be different, we will apply them differently. - Reader Review from Barnes & Noble.


You're Outahere!

I have a question for you.

Do you ever just get tired of being sick n’ tired?

I’m sitting at my desk thinking back upon this crazy journey, my unequally yoked marriage. As I mentally walk through the months and years of my past, I am remembering how I at times would cling to my disappointment, my anger and the unfairness of it all. My unfulfilled expectations would rise, front and center in my mind and that is when it would happen.

Enter stage right: Satan and his minions arrive to perpetuate my thoughts of discontent. Heaven forbid that I would be cleaning house that day because those negative thoughts would course through my brain over and over as I moved from room to room flipping the dusting rag around followed by frenzied vacuuming.

I would get worked into a ridiculous mess.

What a waste of time.

Well I am sick n’ tired of being sick n’ tired.

I am sick of my selfishness. Sick of thinking about the “what ifs” and I am ready to live differently. I want to live in the presence of Jesus where my selfishness fades away in the absolute brilliance of something far more profound.

Are you tired of being sick and tired? Did you say, "yes?" Then you just said yes to God.

So please walk a new path with me, Dineen and Angela. We are about to discover what it really means to have our minds and our hearts transformed into Christlikenes.

The beginning of this journey is Friday, October 2, 2009: 30 Days ~ The Mind of Christ.

To begin your journey, I have something I must send you. I will mail you an envelope. So, please email me now and commit to 30 days in October to discover what this scripture really means.

Romans 12:2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

So many of you have registered already. What a blast and what amazing fulfillment await us as we travel these 30 days together. I can’t wait.

One more thing. Say goodbye to Sick n’ tired because he’s outahere!

Be blessed, Lynn D

30 Days - The Mind of Christ

Over two months ago the Lord woke me up in the middle of the night. He gave me another idea to share with you. If you have been reading here at Spiritually Unequal Marriage for a while, you might remember the Kingdom Assignment. It was an amazing experiment in which many of us participated in last November. What a humbling and triumphant experience it was. God has the best ideas! (to read some of the posts, click on the Kingdom Assignment in the sidebar.)

This new idea that God gave me is similar except this time, the Lord wants to do something for you.

Today we are going to prepare and step out into another experiment. The Lord said it is a perfect time to prepare us for a major shift in our soul and lead us into the most amazing season of our lives.

Just like last year, I want to mail you something important to start our 30 days together. We will walk a new path together each day in October. Beginning Thursday October, 1, 2009 every post here at Spiritually Unequal Marriage will be centered on this specific journey.

So, today, pray and ask the Lord if you are in… It won’t take a ton of time. But, it will change you. It will transform your mind to be more Christ like and will change your heart into the likeness of God. If you want to be part of this challenge, Please email me privately your mailing address. I won’t share it with anyone. I only plan to mail you a single envelope just like last year.

Romans 12:2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

 Find out what this verse really means. By the end of next month you will gain new perspective.

Do you need a miracle:

  • in your marriage
  • with your teenager
  • your boss
  • in the overwhelming schedule you keep
  • with the pain of a lost relationship
  • bearing the hurt of betrayal
  • because you have lost a loved one

All of these things will fall into proper perspective and their proper place. You will see the Lord first then the struggle.... well it will just.....( tune in and find out) 

Isaiah 43:19a

For I am about to do something new.

See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?

Jump

I can’t wait.

Say YES to Jesus and then watch as Christ does something new before your very eyes.

Be blessed, Lynn
