06 Sep Promising September…
I welcome you to a new month.
The ninth month symbolizes a new thing, a new beginning, a season of expectations.
As a mother, for every pregnancy I went through, the ninth month brought such joy, preparations were in top gear in anticipation of the arrival of the new addition to the family. Family and friends would call in to pray in advance that nothing will truncate that joy or cut short our expectations.
And then the D-day arrived. You know the way it was for you as well, after the process of birthing you held your new born baby or babies with such joy on your face and in your heart and you knew it was worth the wait, the inconvenience, delivery pain.
God promises that the aspirations of good people end in celebration. Proverbs 10:28 MSG. His promises are sure and it doesn’t matter what the year may have thrown your way, what hardship you had to bear, sacrifices you had to make, He says “Keep a cool head… The suffering won’t last forever. It won’t be long before this generous God who has great plans for us in Christ—eternal and glorious plans they are!—will have you put together and on your feet for good.” 1 Peter 5:8-11 MSG
What you see in your mind shapes your perception of things around you and your reaction. You are an important factor in how this month of September will unfold for you. Nevertheless, you have His assurance to be with you always and of His grace in every situation.
Therefore, go in the strength of His promises, assured that He who is Alpha and Omega, God of January is the same One true God and He will take you through this awesome month with pleasant surprises to make your joy full.
Remember to keep your cool. Enjoy the video as it assures you of Who your God is.
