“The Lord God has anointed me to preach…the acceptable year of the Lord”.

Today is the acceptable year of the Lord. Don’t bind your mind to a calendar year but grasp the truth that a year is simply put- a division or measure of time. It acts as bookmark in the lives of men and women to allow them to separate or delineate where they’ve been, from where they are going. More importantly, a year is an indication of an age. It is a time of life at which some particular qualifications, power or capacity arises and RESTS.

You can know that you’ve arrived at that place in time, the acceptable year of the Lord, when your life consistently demonstrates the following:

 The Word is your standard and your life manifests the privileges that come with compliance with that standard.

 The power of the Spirit of God and His Kingdom resident in you enable you to produce Kingdom results.

 You demonstrate the ability to regulate, exercise control and authority, and have an expanding sphere of influence.

 You have the capacity and potential to accommodate and hold everything that God has poured into you.

 Resting in God is a commitment to believe God: it’s purely faith, obedience and trusting God. If we can do this consistently then there will be evidence of our faith translated into works- not toil.

This rest allows God to work His plan through us. When His will & plan arises in you and rests- abides and remains, then you’ve realized the acceptable year of the Lord. You’ve transitioned from where you were, from what you’ve been through and moved into where you’re going in God- and that is a place of Sabbath Rest- total reliance on the Kingdom and power of God in you. “There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Heb. 4:9-10 ”

Flow with us...

Yours Because of Him, Pastor Barbara
