Creatively Established

“You have an anointing from the Holy One, and you all have knowledge (know the truth.)” ~I JOHN 2:20 When God calls you to something, He has predestined, pre-equipped you, for what He has called you to do, giving you the wisdom to walk in what He has created you for. (JEREMIAH 1:4-5) So, as Colossians 3:15 says, we should let peace, His peace, reign in our hearts, to which we were called in One Body and be thankful. We should be thankful even when we don’t quite understand the path, trusting that He makes our way straight. For creating us, He called us, calling us, He equipped us. Equipping us He establishes us.

Success is in Your Hands: Faith for Creatives

And they overcame him [the evil one] by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony…” ~Revelation 12:11 *Bracets added The scripture says we overcome by the word of our testimony. When it comes to being successful when it comes to victory, one of the greatest ways to secure this is to tell it, not only for the encouragement of others but to remind yourself when you begin to face other trials. Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. ~PSALM 37:4-5 Success and victory go hand and hand. Both are a mark of triumphing over an obstacle or challenge or in the case of this scripture the enemy of our very lives and souls, Satan. Here is my testimony that I share as a seed of faith for you. In 2015 I was laden with change; change in calling, change in career path, change in vision, change in relationships. Every …
