I Will Sing of Your Strength

 Good morning.  "But as for me, I shall sing of Your strength; Yes, I shall joyfully sing of Your loving kindness in the morning, For You have been my stronghold And a refuge in the day of my distress." Psalms 59:16 NASB I must admit, my walk has been challenging recently. I find my mind leaning into the "fear" of the unknown and causing me to want to "control" those things which I am to "hand over" to Father.  Mind you, those thoughts are confronted by scripture such as above. His words reassure me and lead me into peace.  It's in "the singing of His strength", testimony, that I exude my faith and trust in Him. I can share my "heart of hearts" of my true posture, complete desire for His control.  Father, help me to sing of your faith, so to express my trust in you. Continue to help me to confront the enemy at each attempt he makes to mislead my thoughts to deny me of the truth of your strength.  I need you LORD!  ©Clint F

Christ came to model the life of which He would teach us to live. His first action was the submission and surrender to His Father’s will. In that, Christ gave up His rights, His deity, His will. Why? So the Father could fulfill His purpose through Christ. Only through a truly surrendered and submitted heart can God fulfill Himself through His vessel, you and me. As God leads, we go. As we go, He is there to do His work by His Spirit manifesting Himself in us. In the book of Jeremiah, God describes His desire to fulfill Himself in and through Jeremiah.  Jeremiah's responsibility was to align himself with God's plan. How? By trusting in God. Trust is key!  God explained to Jeremiah that only by seeking Him with his whole heart, could he find God. ( Jeremiah 29:11-14 ) God’s plan, or path is ever winding, blazing through a terrain not suited for man alone. We live in a fallen world, born behind enemy lines instructed to “raise God’s banner” in the middle of the enemies camp. W

SURRENDER

 Let your river flow Father. Bring me into the depths of you. Let me drink from the purity of your truth.  Poor over me today so to capture my heart with utmost trust in that which runs from the spring of your mighty hands.  May your living water awaken me, renewing my strength in obedient service to you and those you place before me.  Rinse away any impurity that may infect my mind, heart, or body, debilitating me from your sanctification. May I go forth in relationship with you,  identified as your own, valued as evidenced by your unconditional love, purposed by your ordination, responsible surrendered through humility, submitted by choice, obedient to your call.  -Clint Fleming "And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect." Romans 12:2 NASB "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father

Protect Your Mind

  Hello.  How does that saying go, "Another day, another dollar"?   Some days it just seems like our only purpose in life is to "keep the lights on and mouths fed".  No matter how true the contrary, it's hard not to fall into that mindset. "For I know the plans I have for you..." Jeremiah 29:11-14.  How do you and I participate in His plan being responsible to the "surrender" John 3:30, Jeremiah 10:23 and the "doing" James 1:22? As I write this, and I imagine as your read, those concerns, decisions, or circumstances of life waylay in the mind. Like trying to balance oneself on a teeter totter, one step too far to one side, your off balance and risk a fall. No, not that the fall would necessarily cause injury, but may lead to doubt, either in yourself, God, or both. Walking the path of His plan may seem at times, like walking a tight rope. Each step you take, your body flails to maintain balance. Ever watch a tight rope walker?

Moving Mountains

When does God move mountains in your life? When you trust in His coordinates and put on your hiking boots.  Jeremiah 29:11-14 -Clint

Happy New Year

Well, Another page to be turned over as we look ahead to a new year. Hopefully 2020 served to  open the eyes of each to see how prevalent and diffuse the enemy is.  If there was ever a  need for focus, it is now. What is necessary for each as we are called to focus on Fathers will/plan?  1) Relationship:  Relationship is key!!!! Each member of the body must be in constant communication with the triune God head.  A healthy relationship with God is not only being mindful of Him, but intentionally seeking Him in mind, body, and soul.  Praying to Father, studying His word and doing as He instructs through His word and Spirit are exercises to build a deep, intimate relationship with Father. Obedience!!  Physical exercise allows for your circulation to flow uninterrupted. So does your Spiritual and mental exercise. Mediocrity is the agent to induce imminent Spiritual death.  2) Communication: Communication is a necessary component of any relationship. Prayer is key to open, intimate relation

Merry Christmas!

When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy. After coming into the house they saw the Child with Mary His mother; and they fell to the ground and worshiped Him. Then, opening their treasures, they presented to Him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Matthew 2:10‭-‬11 NASB
