Spiritual Growth

New Year, New Ways


This past week social media was filled with people who could not wait for 2016 to be over.goodby-2016-welcome-2017-to-all-friends

I get that, I have had a few years like that myself, but 2016 wasn’t one of them. While it certainly had its challenges, I felt God was very good to me this past year. I experienced more healing emotionally than I realized and find myself in a more peaceful place these days.

As the year came to an end and we faced a new year, I did a lot of soul searching as many do at this time of year.

I decided I wanted 2017 to be a much greater year for me and I realized if that is what I want, then I need to make some changes.

I am a firm believer in the Bible and I believe it when it says we reap what and where we sow. If I want to reap more in 2017, then it stands to reason that I will have to sow more in 2017.

Now, I am not just talking financial increase, although that is a part of it, I am mainly talking about an increase in my spiritual walk.

I felt that in the past few years I have been in survival mode much of the time. Fighting to survive loss and disappointments that were almost crippling… almost… but God.

I don’t know about you, but I want out of survival mode and I choose to enter, this day, into thrive mode.

As I was pondering all this over the weekend, I thought about how I was raised. I, and my three sisters, were raised by a single Mom. She was awesome and I wouldn’t trade my Mom for any other Mom. That being said, the main thing she taught her ‘girls’ was survival. My sister and I were talking about that very thing recently.

While it is certainly good to be able to survive, that’s not God’s best. While being taught survival helped me to weather some of the storms of the past few years, I want out of survival mode. And I want out now.

These are the things that are on my heart as I said goodbye to one year and hello to another.

Therefore, I ended 2016 by giving to the Lord financially. I began 2017 by, again, giving to the Lord, and to those who had ministered to me. Why? Because I believe in the law of sowing and reaping. If I want to reap more, I sow more.

And, I spent my last day of 2016 in the presence of God and in His word. I spent the first day of 2017, in His word and in His presence. You see, I intend to go into this year correctly, strongly and I intend to finish this year stronger than I began it. But if that is to be true, then it starts with me.

We can’t put ‘nothing’ in and expect things to change. What is that saying ‘insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results?’

If you were not happy with 2016… change it. God has given us His word, His authority and everything we need to live the life that Jesus died to give us, but the rest is up to us.

His promises don’t automatically manifest in our life just because we read them in the word or someone tells us about them. They enter into our life because we read/ hear them, we believe them, we receive them and we stand in faith until we see them manifest in our life.

Don’t get me wrong. God’s promises are truth and they are available to all of us. However, not all of us are walking in them and few of us walk in all of them. So, what needs to change? We do. We WILL REAP WHERE WE SOW.

That’s what I want you to think about today. Do you want some things to change? Change them. Do you want to reap more spiritually? Sow more spiritually? Do you want to reap more financially? Sow more. God is not mocked. Whatever we sow, that will we reap.

Today is January 2nd. I again sowed into my spiritual walk today and into my relationship with God AND all day long I felt the effects of that time of sowing….I am already seeing results. Our God is so very faithful.

My wonderful friends, it is time to come out of survival mode and begin to thrive in God. It’s MY YEAR TO THRIVE, will you join me?


I Can Hear The Sound!

by Thomas Griffin

I can hear the sound of the abundance of rain! God is bringing breakthrough in your finances as you continue to trust Him. You are supposed to live in more than enough and for that there is a process, time and season. That season has begun! The drought is over in Jesus name. You need to declare that now in Jesus name. Say it out loud! Droughts are ceasing and increase has come.

Seed requires rain and it's beginning to rain says the Holy Spirit! Sow into this next harvest.

Be led by the Spirit of God! He will make you a WISE INVESTOR. Wise investors seek out the right time, the right soil, and the right amount of seed. But how then can we know? We must be led by the Spirit of God.

Are you being led to sow right now? Don't wait! This is good soil and the season of financial breakthrough is at hand. Click here to Sow

Just today, Mandi and I started a practice of sowing our tithes even before the income is in the bank. When I told Her to "write the check" I heard the Holy Spirit say "sow tithe on what you want your income to be, not what it is. Do this in faith!" BOOM! A strategy laid before us. Acting in faith on this ALERT to sow and strategy is adhering to the Lord's timing not ours. In fact, its the worst possible time for us to sow like this if we were to look at it in the natural..however we CANNOT respond to what we see in the natural if we are needing a SUPERnatural breakthrough. We must be Spirit Led because He sees things to come and we cannot.

Trust the Lord and prove Him in this. Sow sacrificially and watch Abba move men on your behalf. Look for debit forgiveness, random (not so random) acts of provision, funding for vision, and more.

I hear the Holy Spirit saying it's okay to prove God in this because He told us to! Hurry and get your seed in the soil before it rains and watch the abundance of rain bring an abundance of harvest in Jesus name!

For us a sacrificial seed that has brought breakthrough so many times we can't even count them is $200 but sow what the Lord lays on your heart right now for it's beginning to rain!

We are standing in faith WITH you for your breakthrough.

You are my God-family and it's time for your total breakthrough! Be free from doubt and unbelief in Jesus name. Check out Philippians 4:19 and read the story of Elijah and Ahab when it looked like rain would never come and God poured it out! That's in 1 Kings 18:41.

Get Ready! Here comes the rain.....

Sow a seed right now into Spirit Fuel in this moment of grace for breakthrough. Step into breakthrough and choose Our Father as your provider and provision. Sow a seed of $50, or $25, or $111, or $555. By sowing a seed today into Spirit Fuel, you will be helping to reach more people on the internet for the Kingdom of God. Thank you for your support!
