The Blessings of...

XERIC, YIELDING, and ZEALOUS

Xeric

Xeric means to dry up, shrivel, pine away, or to be without water (SEC).

The believer should not be found in a dry, shriveled-up state, but should be well-watered and fruitful. When we are dried up we are not productive or reaching our full potential in Christ. The purpose that the Lord has for our lives is not being fulfilled when we are in a xeric condition or dryness. 

“And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the wayside, and the fowls came and devoured them up: Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.”
-Matthew 13:4-6 

 

Yielding

To yield means to give up, concede, surrender, and obey (AHD).

Believers should not yield reluctantly, but should willingly surrender any fleshly desires to God’s will. 

Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts and passions. Do not go on offering members of your body to sin as instruments of wickedness. But offer yourselves to God [in a decisive act] as those alive [raised] from the dead [to a new life], and your members [all of your abilities—sanctified, set apart] as instruments of righteousness [yielded] to God. -Romans 6:12-13

 

Zealous

Zealous means to be filled with or motivated by zeal, or fervent (AHD).

A believer who is called by Christ will utilize every effort to fulfill his God-given purpose.

   
“Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.” -Titus 2:13-14

Be blessed!

Continue to prepare yourself, spiritually, in anticipation of God's movement in your life. And, those that desire to become a believer, take the step towards salvation. Contact me to find out how.

 

Love, Love!

2020 THEME -  "Shining the Spotlight on the Total Believer through Strategic Prayer and Revelation Knowledge "
MOTTO -  2020 Vision: This is the year of CLARITY!
MESSAGE -   In the year of 2020, we must have revealed knowledge, which will come through clarity of sight from the word of God. We have to remove the distractions that hinder our vision..the word has to be a spotlight helping us to receive revealed knowledge through the Spirit of God. We can get there by going to get our eyes "examined"-our examination is prayer. Just as the blind man’s sight was restored from seeing men as trees to total clarity, we too must allow Jesus to bring clarity through strategic prayer and revelation knowledge (Mark 8:23-25). God is going to speak to us through prayer and His word (enhanced biblical knowledge)! This is going to be an awesome year of PRAYER, POWER, and PROSPERITY!
