Day 266: Your Word for 2018 (September 23)

Last week, I was reminded of my word for the year. Recompense.  It was strange because I had almost forgotten that word, but during a prophetic word that was being released from a website, I heard it again.  Isn’t that crazy?!  The word for our family, also seems to be a word for the body as a whole according to this site.  It’s so neat how God works.  He knits everything together in the coolest way.

So, I thought today would be a good day for you to re-visit your word.  Go back and look at it and any verses you have to support it.  Don’t forget.  Remember what God had promised over your year.

Has it been happening?  If not, then the next few months ought to be pretty exciting for you.  Because He is true to His word and you can plan for it to unfold.

He is faithful to His word.

To be honest, I’ve seen a lot of recompense in our lives this year, but in some key areas I’m still waiting.  I’m not always sure how to process it.

As a recovering perfectionist, I find myself pulled back and forth between being so grateful for all He’s done and the desire to see more.

Isn’t that the common challenge?  I don’t think I’m alone in this.

So, take time before church and recount all the blessings of this year so far, and hold in your heart an awe and joy to continue to see Him move.

Thank Him for His bounty over you and let it encourage your whole being.

Below I am writing out a Psalm that I had painted on a large canvas for my husband.  It hangs on the wall in every home we live.  God gave it to me, for him many years ago, but it’s funny because when I feel troubled, I reflect on it and say to my soul, “I am a fruitful vine within our home.”  We can even be encouraged by other’s words.  God is so good.

Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to Him.  You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.  Your wife will be a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table.  Yes, this will be the blessing for the man who fears the Lord.  May the Lord bless you from Zion; may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life.  May you live to see your children’s children-  peace be on Israel.  Psalm 128
