“Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass”
1 Thes. 5:24
Noah believed and held onto a promise of God for his life for many, many years. He endured insults, rejection and jeers-but that didn’t keep him from putting one foot in front of the other, hammer to the hull. Not only did everything the Lord told him happen, he saved his family from despair and he created a marvelous invention that had never been seen, required or desired before. Talk about a Visionary!

“Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God.” Genesis 6:9
If God is ever going to do anything great with your life you must first believe in His power in your life. We can aspire, discipline ourselves, set goals and pursue them all, but without the right foundation it will collect mold. The dream or accomplishment won’t hold.
Noah’s biggest miracle wasn’t building an ark or gathering animals or even life in the first boat. His greatest Miracle was believing God.
Get it down deep. Let it stir
A small child learning to walk may fall 50 times for he or she succeeds to take a handful of steps.
A kid learning to ride their bike may wibble and wobble and even fall over, but they keep getting up.
They say if you fall off of a horse you should get right back on to eradicate any future fear of riding.
How do you know this is not your year? Though we may fall. We may fail, we may not see the fruit of results God has purposed within us, we
“…For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” 1 Sam. 16:7
God doesn’t think like we do. God doesn’t chose like we chose.
The Bible says to do unto the least of these…because our least is God’s Great.
My husband has been coaching athletes for over 30 years at all levels. One particular athlete who is now retired is an example of God’s Great. First off, she competed in a sport she is not built for. Most women she would
“The members of the council were amazed when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, for they could see that they were ordinary men with no special training in the Scriptures. They also recognized them as men who had been with Jesus.” Acts 4:13
Every Believer has a ministry tucked within the chambers of their heart. It’s been planted there by a Sovereign God who had a special design on your life when He created your life.
My entire childhood and young adult life I was pretty quiet, subdued and introverted.
When God has a blessing for you it is important to wait for the full blessing in its full measure.
Waiting is hard. Patience is a golden virtue. Many years ago we sold our home during the peek of the market. We sold it to a couple we knew for far less than what the current market value called for. We did this because we knew for some time, 3 years, it’s what God wanted us to do. But we didn’t know right away who we would sell to or
How to Live a Life of Expectancy
Place every care, every doubt, every fear on the top shelf. Put it high and out of reach. A place hidden in God where you couldn’t retrieve it even if you were tempted to.
It has nothing to offer you.
It has nothing to give.
In the atmosphere of expectancy is where God wants you to live.
In this arena God will give abundantly to your heart. It will be amazing. God can bless hand over fist. This is the arena of Manifest Blessing to give and live.
What if Noah only obeyed God once he understood the request?
What if Shadrack, Meshack and Abednego decided to bow before the idol to spare themselves, but vowed to not do so in their heart?
What if Elijah stayed in a cave instead of going to Jezebel?
What if Mary said no to the Angel of the Lord? What if Jesus got down off of His Cross and said, “that’s all for me. This is too hard and it doesn’t make sense.”
God is the same yesterday, today and forever. He is
