He has already provided:

2014 is almost over. Christmas will be here and many people are already looking forward to a new year.

In this, my last reflection of the year, I want to encourage you to look forward with great anticipation.

We are. We are convinced that God has something great and wonderful ahead of us and are already preparing ourselves to receive it and do as He asks.

As we close however, we are conscious that God does not have to start doing things; He has already done them! In fact everything is already finished…before it starts. God has already provided.

He provided salvation before the earth was formed. According to Revelation 13:8, Jesus was the Lamb who was Slain before the foundation of the earth.

Can you tell me how long ago that was done? It was not 2000 years ago but in the days before time as we know it existed. The difference as far as we are concerned is that Jesus had not yet been manifested on the earth.

Now if God does not change, and His ways do not change and if Jesus was made to be your substitute back then, so are your blessings and provision.

Your protection and guidance is likewise already prepared and completed, waiting for the day when they are needed.

You might not be able to see it all yet, but that does not mean they are not real. When God sent the twelve spies out to view the Promised Land, they had to go see for themselves and that happened when they needed to enter into it. They had not yet seen it, but the land was already there. It was everything God had promised.

When God called Abram, the man and his wife were too old to have children. God however knew that their heirs already existed. God told him-
Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.  Genesis 17:5.

God called things real that were not yet physically real. He did not tell Abram that He would one day make him the father of many nations, but changed his name to Abraham, because He was already the father of many nations. He had already provided.

As we close off the year, please look forward to a year in which everything you need and desire is already there.
God has already provided everything for you before know that you need it.

The Realities of Eternity 
The bible talks about places like Heaven and Hell, which are very real.
Some folk deny their existence, but too many people testify of visiting them. I have! We all have differing testimonies, but also share similar things in common. 
In this trilogy of accounts, let me share with you part of my visits to Heaven, a 45 minute visit to Hell and the story of my own son Gary who died and was brought back to life to meet Jesus.
He is now with the Lord.

Daily Psalm מִזְמוֹר‎ & Proverb מִשְלֵי 

The LORD is my light and my salvation— so why should I be afraid? The LORD is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble? When evil people come to devour me, when my enemies and foes attack me, they will stumble and fall. Though a mighty army surrounds me, my heart will not be afraid. Even if I am attacked, I will remain confident. Psalm 27:1-3 

Daily Prescription רָפָא‎ 

Then Jesus left Galilee and went north to the region of Tyre. He didn’t want anyone to know which house he was staying in, but he couldn’t keep it a secret. Right away a woman who had heard about him came and fell at his feet. Her little girl was possessed by an evil spirit, and she begged him to cast out the demon from her daughter. Since she was a Gentile, born in Syrian Phoenicia, Jesus told her, “First I should feed the children—my own family, the Jews. It isn’t right to take food from the children and throw it to the dogs.” She replied, “That’s true, Lord, but even the dogs under the table are allowed to eat the scraps from the children’s plates.” “Good answer!” he said. “Now go home, for the demon has left your daughter.” And when she arrived home, she found her little girl lying quietly in bed, and the demon was gone.
Jesus left Tyre and went up to Sidon before going back to the Sea of Galilee and the region of the Ten Towns. A deaf man with a speech impediment was brought to him, and the people begged Jesus to lay his hands on the man to heal him. Jesus led him away from the crowd so they could be alone. He put his fingers into the man’s ears. Then, spitting on his own fingers, he touched the man’s tongue. Looking up to heaven, he sighed and said, “Ephphatha,” which means, “Be opened!” Instantly the man could hear perfectly, and his tongue was freed so he could speak plainly! Jesus told the crowd not to tell anyone, but the more he told them not to, the more they spread the news. They were completely amazed and said again and again, “Everything he does is wonderful. He even makes the deaf to hear and gives speech to those who cannot speak.” Mark 7:24-37
