God has been doing such amazing things so far this year that I really just have not had the time to update these entries until now.
For some reason, I have been sitting here today thinking about the path that God has laid out for me and particularly the one I have already walked.
I am reminded of Jeremiah 1:4-10 NKJV
“4 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying:
5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
Before you were born I sanctified you;
I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
6 Then said I:
“Ah, Lord God!
Behold, I cannot speak, for I am a youth.”
7 But the Lord said to me:
“Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’
For you shall go to all to whom I send you,
And whatever I command you, you shall speak.

Revelation 5:5-7 King James Version (KJV)
5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

Believers were crucified (Gal 2:20) dead (Col 2:20) buried (Rom 6:4) quickened or Made Alive (Eph 2:1-5 & Col 2:13) raised ( Col 3:1; Eph 2:6) seated (Eph 2:6) and Glorified (Rom 8:17) TOGETHER WITH CHRIST………
In John 15 Jesus used the example of the vine and the branches to describe this relationship…
John 15 King James Version (KJV)
15 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
3 Now ye are clean…
