Turn­around

Moose Jaw Express.com - - Front Page -

There have been a few times over the years that our horses have es­caped their pas­ture. One such time was dur­ing the night when a young horse, a mare heavy in foal and Big Sweet Pea’s prize bar­rel rac­ing geld­ing left and were seen miles down the high­way by our neigh­bor. Thank­fully, he put them in a nearby pas­ture and we were able to get them the next day. We just had a few es­capees again re­cently but this time I saw them on their way out of Dodge. Two young ones, along with two minia­tures, thought their time of free­dom had fi­nally come and they wasted no time mak­ing their way out of the yard on a run. Thank­fully, Big Sweet Pea hopped in a ve­hi­cle and got down ahead of them be­fore they went to Tim­buktu! All she had to do was get ahead of them, turn the car around and honk the horn and they knew they had bet­ter obey. Sure enough, I see them bee-lin­ing for the cor­ral like a streak of light­ning; oth­er­wise, who knows where they would’ve ended up! There are times in our lives when we can get off course or be­come dis­cour­aged with the di­rec­tion our lives are headed and some­times we just need an in­ter­ven­tion and en­cour­age­ment to change where we are headed. Maybe we are like those four-legged animals that seem to think that the grass is greener be­yond the fence but need to be re­minded we must get back to where it is best for us to be. Or maybe, we are ac­tu­ally on a path that isn’t where we should be and we need an in­ter­ven­tion to stop us in our tracks and get us back on the right course. There are many, many words right now that in­di­cate we are in a turn­around sea­son. Let this be a com­fort and en­cour­age­ment to you that no mat­ter what you are ex­pe­ri­enc­ing, that God has a turn­around planned for your life. Steve Porter gave this word: “I am the God of the turn­around! For some time now you have been ask­ing Me when things are go­ing to turn around - when the winds of change are go­ing to start blow­ing, when the winds of fa­vor will head your way. Well, the time is now, and I’m go­ing to be­gin to re­store ev­ery­thing that the lo­cust has eaten! It’s time for your turn­around. Did I not make a path­way for My peo­ple through the Red Sea? Did I not pro­vide wa­ter from a rock to give re­fresh­ment? Did I not send manna and quail to feed My peo­ple? Did I not give di­rec­tion by a cloud dur­ing the day and a pil­lar of fire dur­ing the night to lead them?”If I did that for My peo­ple then don’t I care just as much about you? Can I not bring or­der from your chaos or re­fresh­ment from the dry places in your life? Can I not res­ur­rect even the dead things? ‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the LORD. ‘They are plans for good and not for dis­as­ter, to give you a fu­ture and a hope.’ “This is not a time to fold your hands and fall asleep. It’s a time to de­cree and de­clare that you have vic­tory through Me. So ask Me to­day for your turn­around. I’m re­leas­ing fa­vor over you. I’m restor­ing your honor and giv­ing you a fresh man­date from heaven. I am ready to arise and scat­ter your en­e­mies.” Re­ceive this word for you, per­son­ally to­day! Tape it on your fridge or bath­room mir­ror and reread God’s word ev­ery­day! Get it in your spirit and BE­LIEVE what He says will come to pass! As we turn up the calendar into an­other month, may you be en­cour­aged to see that God is wait­ing to turn around things in your life. Ask Him. Seek Him and see His pro­vi­sion and per­fec­tion in ev­ery­thing that con­cerns you. Have an amaz­ing week, dear read­ers! Scrip­ture ref­er­ences: Jeremiah 29:11, Psalms 68:1
