Out with the old, in with the new.
A new year has come upon us and it's time for us to get ready for a new assignment. God is speaking so we must listen. God is love, God is Joy and God is life and God expects us to give to others what he has given us, love, joy and life. A kind word or a warm smile can make a difference in someone's life. When you hold on to your past, you hinder yourself from receiving the new things God has planned for you. 2 Corinthians says, "Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." It's time to let go and let God do a new thing in and with you. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/lanatha-johnson/message

Flaws and Imperfections
What is a flaw? How would you define imperfection? Since God created you in his image, there should be no such thing as a flaw. You were created to look and be different for a reason. Everything God created is beautiful and that includes you. Matthew 5:48 says, "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect". The spirit of God abides in you so therefore you are perfect. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/lanatha-johnson/message

You can run but you can't hide
When God places a calling on your life and you try to hide, He will find you right where you are. He will cause a storm to rise in your environment to bring you out of your place of hiding. When you experience anything that stirs your spirit and make you feel uncomfortable, it is difficult to believe that God is in the midst. Storms, trials and tribulations of any type can make you think that your life doesn't have purpose. God has a plan for your life when he bring you through your storm. When you pray and call his name in your dark place, he will answer you and bring you out. Embrace yourself to come out of your place of hiding and move into what God called you to do. Jonah 1:1-3 " Now the word of the Lord came unto Jonah, son of Amittai, saying, Arise, Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness has come up before me; But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish, from the presence of the Lord" --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/lanatha-johnson/message

Most of us know what it feels like to be interrupted. It shifts our focus from the very thing we are doing. Interruptions also may cause us to lose interest in what we were doing. God began a good work in you while you were in your mother's womb but your past traumas interrupted His plan. Philippians 1:6 says "Being confident in this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ." Past traumas was just an interruption in God's plan for your life but His original plan never changed. His plan is for you to live according to his will and purpose. When you hold on to past traumas, you are interrupting the good work that God began in you. Let go of your past traumas so you can live according to God's plan. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/lanatha-johnson/message

Life is full of challenges and we will be faced with situations that can cause us to be uncomfortable in our spirit. Spiritual warfare is real. We must not give in to the challenges that come before us. Continue to use what God gave you to overcome your situations. His love and light is real so let his light shine within you. Let your words and actions honor God. 1 Peter 2:1 says, "Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speaking." --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/lanatha-johnson/message

Entertainment At The Playground
Are you your worst enemy or do you entertain your worst enemy? When you continue to hold onto negative thoughts, the enemy will always find a way to entertain himself. Romans 12:2 says, "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God" --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/lanatha-johnson/message

Nothing But The Truth
In most situations, abusers feel the need to have control of something or someone. Being dishonest can and will keep you from living with purpose. When an abuser intentionally hurt others, they are unaware of the pain and stress that they are causing on their personal lives. God's word in John 8:32 says, "And ye shall know the truth, and the make you free." If you are an abusive woman, trust that God will heal you because silent victims (men) have a right to heard and believed. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/lanatha-johnson/message

A humble heart and patience can be the greatest reflection on how you honor God in your day. Ezekiel 36:27 says, "And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them." --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/lanatha-johnson/message

Peace Be Still
Each one of us has a calling on our life and when God has called you to be great in Him, the enemy will always try to find a way to distract you. God need you for his will and purpose. When you are feeling distracted in your mind and spirit, quiet your thoughts and sit still in the presence of God. Proverbs 12:25 reads, " Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop, but a good word maketh it glad." Again, sit still and quiet your thoughts so you can distract the enemy. Yes, it is time to shame the devil. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/lanatha-johnson/message

Moving Forward by Faith
When we walk by faith, God is just to bless us with the desires of our heart. I fast and I pray and ask I God to use me in the greatest way possible. God is almighty and I love what he has called me to do. I give all glory to the savior. If the spirit of God moves, so should we. When you speak things into existence, God can make it happen according to his will and his purpose. It is proven in Genesis 1:3 "And God said, let there be light, and there was light". God needs each one us to be a light to his kingdom. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/lanatha-johnson/message

Where Were You?
Past traumas, fear, doubts and unforgiveness can keep you in a place of darkness. If you need to revisit the place where your stresses began, let the spirit of God be the guide to take you back to those places. You don't necessarily have to revisit if it was a physical place, you could revisit those places in your mind and in your heart with the spirit of God that's within you. Just as the earth was without form and void and "darkness was upon the face of the deep and the spirit of God moved", so will the spirit of God move you out of your place of darkness and into his light. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/lanatha-johnson/message

Where Are You?
Where are you? This is an easy question to answer when you are familiar with your physical location. We now use Google maps, WAZE, or other navigation systems to help us reach an unfamiliar location. But where are you emotionally or spiritually? Are you on a journey of confusion? If you find yourself on an emotional or spiritual rollercoaster, God's spirit is the GPS that will find you and his word will help you redirect your journey. Galatians 5:25 says, "If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit" You cannot get lost when you are following God's directions because God is everywhere. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/lanatha-johnson/message

Action speaks louder than words
God's word in Proverbs 16:3 says, "Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established." You have been given a special assignment to do the will of God and when you make a commitment to do what he has called you to do, he will give you clear direction to work with purpose. God will hold you accountable for everything you say and do so you must be mindful of how you interact with others. It has been said that people remember what you say and they also remember what you do, so why not "Commit thy works unto the Lord". --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/lanatha-johnson/message
