Commanding 2009

Today is the 3rd day of 2009. Are you in command of your year? Or is your year commanding you, just as it did in 2008. Last year, I had read a prophesy that focused on Mark 4:35-45 and it continues to stay on my mind. With everything that is going on in the 'world', God is still saying to us 'Peace Be Still'. Basically, He is still saying to us command your situation. That he is still on the throne and YOU still have the authority to command your situation. Remember Jesus reprimanded the disciples: "Why are you such cowards? Don't you have any faith at all?" "Why are you so timid and fearful? How is it that you have no faith (no firmly relying trust)?" Do you want to hear that from God. After everything he has done for you, every situation that he has pulled you through and you still don't have faith in Him. Since the news has been talking about the stock market going down, that we are in a recession; none of this has phased me a bit. My answer to all that talk - "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus " Phil 4:19. What is so personal about this statement is that 'My God'. Make this scripture personal - 'But my God shall supply all Mary's needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus'. God is still in control. That statement is commanding your life and how it is to operate. You are saying that I don't operate by the world system, but I operate by God's system. Have you every looked up the definition of Command. I looked it up. It means the following:
1. To direct with authority; give orders to.
2. To have control or authority over; rule:
3. To exercise dominating, authoritative influence over: "He commands any room he enters" (Stephen Schiff).
4. The act of commanding.

Now is that powerful or what? Isn't that what God is telling us throughout the Bible. To take authority , to have control. I really like #3 example of the definition, "He commands any room he enters". Let's change it around, "You command any situation that you are in". That is exercising dominating. In Genesis 1:18, God dominated the day and the night and he saw that it was good. Since we are suppose to be like God, then we should be dominating are day and night. YOU should be Commanding Your Day! Don't let another year go by, that you are not in COMMAND. Command 2009!


Mark 4:35-45 (The Message) Read King James and Amplified version.

 35-38Late that day he said to them, "Let's go across to the other side." They took him in the boat as he was. Other boats came along. A huge storm came up. Waves poured into the boat, threatening to sink it. And Jesus was in the stern, head on a pillow, sleeping! They roused him, saying, "Teacher, is it nothing to you that we're going down?"

 39-40Awake now, he told the wind to pipe down and said to the sea, "Quiet! Settle down!" The wind ran out of breath; the sea became smooth as glass. Jesus reprimanded the disciples: "Why are you such cowards? Don't you have any faith at all?"

 41They were in absolute awe, staggered. "Who is this, anyway?" they asked. "Wind and sea at his beck and call!"

Genesis 1:18: GOD'S WORD® Translation (©1995)
to dominate the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. God saw that it was good.
