7 Simple Words.

The Lords servant commissioned.

Covenant 2012-2013


This is a new season, and it’s unlike any other season of life that I have ever been in. This past year God led me into a desert place where I found him in a more profound way than I ever could on my own. The process of discipleship changed my life and it was only just the begging. “But then I will win her back once again I will lead her into the desert and speak tenderly to her there.” Hosea 3:14. He showed me I was worthy enough for him to live a perfect, sanctified life and then to die a criminals death he didn’t deserve, all so that I could know him, so I could be in relationship with him here on earth and then for eternity. He died to atone for my sins. Not only my sins but, the whole wicked world’s sins. He lived and died for me and that’s the greatest love known to mankind. He saturated me in love, he poured out his spirit upon me. He called me his daughter and thus all the promises were open to me and I was made free, I understood my worth. And he has identified us as his own by placing the Holy Spirit in our hearts as the first installment that guarantees everything he has promised us.”-2 Corinthians 1:22.

I believe that I am walking into a season that is preparing me for future ministry. Whether it be the ministry of spreading the gospel in my everyday life or in whatever occupation or it literally be preparing me for being in a ministry. Isaiah 49:5-6 “And now the Lord speaks—
the one who formed me in my mother’s womb to be his servant,
who commissioned me to bring Israel back to him.
The Lord has honored me,
and my God has given me strength.
6 He says, “You will do more than restore the people of Israel to me.

I will make you a light to the Gentiles,
and you will bring my salvation to the ends of the earth.”
I believe that God has promised me that I will lead people to Christ through many different creative and beautiful avenues. To get there though in the fullness of his call, I must become a woman of greater Faith. Like Abraham I look to lead a life of yes, simple obedience to the law but on right relationship with God that comes by faith. God had made a covenant promise with Abraham that he would be the father of many nations. He held on to that promise like it was the end of rope over an abyss. He held fast to a promise that he did not see the end result of and it was by faith that he believed God would do exactly what he said he would do. Romans 4:20-24 20 Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God.” I was made for Glory. I was born to show the world the light of the world! This year I believe that God wants to take me into a deeper faith in him that in return would glorify his name. 21 He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises.”  This year I must trust the Lord with everything that to my human finite mind seems impossible. I know that through him all things are possible. This Project for Nigeria seems impossible to me and I am scared to death. But God has called me to it. He has given me a Godly burden for all the people who will be reached and helped through it. I have to trust him and know that I can’t do this on my own. 22 And because of Abraham’s faith, God counted him as righteous. 23 And when God counted him as righteous, it wasn’t just for Abraham’s benefit. It was recorded 24 for our benefit, too, assuring us that God will also count us as righteous if we believe in him, the one who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead.” Do I really believe in what Christ says he will do? This is the time where I will walk out my faith in his promises. This year God will have glory for everything I do. I will no longer be known for who I am or what I do but for the Love of the Lord that pours out of me in every aspect of my life. No one will know me as simply a nice person but a great godly woman of faith that is spreading the gospel of love everywhere my network reaches. My loyalty will not be divided he will always be my first love. I make a vow that the infinite space in my heart has only space enough for him. Nothing else will quite satisfy. I promise to remember the infinity in my heart that belongs to God alone. He has all my devotion. This year I will dream bigger than I have ever dreamed before because I faith in our unfailing God who makes everything possible. This year I will keep hoping even when there seems to be no hope just like Abraham.
