Of this I am CERTAIN.
When God is the one writing your story it NEVER ends with ashes.
The author of CREATION is in the business of restoring the wreckage and all that's broken into something beautiful.
He makes ALL things new.

Get Back to the Basics
Do you want to be influential in the Kingdom of God? In Revelations 2 God puts the spot light on the church in Ephesus.
He says this to them, "I see your business, your hard work, your
patient endurance. You haven't fainted or grown weary. But this one
thing I have against you. You have abandoned that first love you had for
me. [That "no matter the cost" determination to follow me] come
back....return ---or i will remove your lampstand from its place among
Your level of obedience will determine your level of influence. If you want to be an influential part of the Kingdom---Get back to the basics.
A right heart ..... in right relationship with God. Being busy DOING
isn't going to increase your level of influence. It's in relationship
with the Father that He shines the light on our testimony and brings the
increase to your service.
In vs. 26 it says "He who obeys--I will give authority and power over nations"
If you want to move with God. In the flow of His anointing and in His
blessings. If you want your works to be backed with POWER .... then Get
back to the basics. Be people of CONVICTION and refuse to budge
from them. Draw lines in the sand that you just will NOT cross. Get
back to what it was like when you FIRST believed. when you first came
to know Him....and be in RIGHT relationship with God. So HE can use you
to influence and advance the KINGDOM. Then your works will be marked
with HIS favor and HIS anointing and you will be far more influential
than if you tried to do it without.
