March 19, 2017
As the first quarter of 2017 is almost over, we can see many events unfolding around the world. With that in mind, I want to encourage you, that no matter the condition of the world, you can have faith in God! If He has asked, told, or encouraged you to do something for Him this year, I am here to encourage you, YOU CAN DO IT!
The Bible says success is, “if you be willing and obedient, you will eat the good of the land.” (Isaiah 1:19).
Today, I want to declare to you, that for the rest of 2017, you will see the desired outcomes you need and are believing for. That you will attain wealth, favor, and be successful to all you put your hand to. That you will be the head and not the tail, above and not beneath. That you will break out of your lack and walk into His abundance as you obey Him.
This is your time to see the goodness of God in your life! The days ahead of you are there to propel you upward and over every obstacle the enemy has thrown at you. Expect success in all you do, starting now!!
Changing Our Mindset
When we are not thinking as God thinks, we put ourselves into a place where circumstances can control us. Remember, we live in this world, but we are not of this world. We operate in a realm that has no limitations, is not governed by man, and where anything is possible.
Do not let this world dictate to you what you must do, what you should say, or how you should act. Instead, allow God’s Word be the final authority in your life!
Sometimes we need an adjustment in our minds. When we have been dwelling on negative thoughts, listened to the enemy tell us why we cannot do something, it often times pulls us down. Change your mindset, and start saying, doing, and believing what God says about you!
You Can Do This!
Whatever your “this is” is, you and God are enough to accomplish it. As you seek Him, He will guide you, help you, reveal to you, and encourage you in the direction, He wants you to go. So spend some time alone with Him and listen to what He is saying to you.
Be willing to ask Him questions! This shows that you and Him have a great relationship. It pleases Him when you decide to set everything else aside in order to be with Him. In these precious moments, you and Him will have so much fun, that you might even like it, and decide to spend even more time with Him.
Remember, your success is determined by the amount of quality time you spend with Him. There is no other way around it. Time spent with God, is never wasted time! You will be the one who benefits, when you spend time with the One who created everything! Try it, I guarantee you will like it, maybe even love it!
Do Not Settle
The enemy will try to get you to “settle.” That means, he will try to get you to back off, sometimes ever so slightly, in order to derail you. He will tempt you to do something a little bit different, than what God said. If you fall for this strategy of his, you will start “drifting” away from God!
Tell your enemy no, in Jesus name, and as you do, he will flee! Many great plans from God have been stopped by people settling. Do not let that happen to you! Keep your relationship with God, current and fresh. Watch God position you for great success! Do not change one thing God says. Do it His way, and only His way! He knows what He is doing! He has never failed!
You serve a great God! Allow His greatness to overshadow you, and work for and with you! One person obeying God can change the world! Are you that person?
We held our last Prayer/Healing Meeting on March 12th. We saw a great outpouring of God’s presence and love that night! Our upcoming ministry schedule for Staten Island at the Hampton Inn & Suites follows:
Sunday, Mar. 26th 6:00 pm
Please know, Kim and I pray for you on a regular basis. Always free feel to send us an email if you have a specific need you want us to agree with you on. We believe in the power of prayer! No request is too small or too big. We serve a God who cares about every aspect of our lives! If there is anything we can do for you, please let us know!
We are still believing for the resources to come in so we can purchase some much needed signs for our ministry. The signs will be used to help direct people to our meetings, and show we are a ministry of excellence!
We still need an additional $400! Please pray and agree with us that this need is met in Jesus name! And if He tugs on your heart to give towards this, please obey Him. If everyone who receives this email obeys what He says to give, the need will be met. So please, pray and obey.
You can give online on our secure website at: www.jerepetersonministries.com, or you can mail a check, made payable to Jere Peterson Ministries, Inc., to: PO Box 15, Lavallette, NJ 08735. Kim and I thank you so much for helping us financially, so we can continue our work in NYC! May God richly bless you as you obey His will for your life!
In the Harvest Fields,
Jere & Kim Peterson
