2018: By God, for God and All About God!
January 2, 2018
Recently while in my garden, God said, “You don’t think I’m going to let ‘so and so’ trump ME, do you?” “So and so” was a multi-millionaire relationship I’d walked away from. Hearing God say this got my attention. Then He said, “I want you to be a good receiver.” Within days I had friends call saying, “we’ve decided to bring Christmas to you”. Wow! I hadn’t felt like decorating but knowing my friends have 3 young daughters, (who’d agreed to give up their Christmas to bring me Christmas), I wanted to be sure everything was extra special.
Christmas Day, my friends arrived welcomed by the aroma of spiced cider in the crock pot, turkey in the oven, and all the preparation to insure a memorable, Norman Rockwell like, Christmas. The day was absolutely wonderful, right down to ringing in a little Christmas on the piano. Then, my friends said, “well, are you ready to open presents” and under the tree were beautifully wrapped gifts for me! Each gift was so thoughtful, so special, even a beautiful, one-of-a-kind gift that I know was a labor of love. I was speechless. Then I was handed an envelope and told they’d shared with someone else how they, as a family, decided to give their Christmas to me and that person wanted to sow into me as well. My eyes welled with tears, my voice quivered, “they don’t even know me”…… In the envelope was cash, a lot of cash! A complete stranger was sowing into me! They may never meet me but now they’ll be credited by God for sowing this seed.
When I had written the word, “It’s The Most Wonderful Season of ALL: Full of PRESENCE!”, little did I know it was being unwrapped right before my eyes, right down to the detail of me receiving ‘gifts from the heart, one size fits all that don’t wear out’! Many, like me, have walked a rough road, full of heartache and pain; but God has gone before us, preparing not only our way but preparing us to inherit His Promises. There are blessings attached to obedience and GOD KEEPS HIS WORD! We are entering a New Season, (our promised land), where God keeps His promises. We’ve never been this way before. What He’s doing is brand new, not an old thing done a new way but a totally NEW thing. We will reap, not only where we’ve sown, but where we haven’t sown. Jesus says, “I sent you to harvest where you didn't plant; others had already done the work, and now you will get to gather the harvest.” John 4:38
As I’ve sat soaking all of this in, so grateful for His presence in my life, I see throngs of people emerging, all over the world, from every walk of life, prepared to possess territory and I hear music; they’re singing, “I’m coming out, I want the world to know, got to let it show”! It’s the song by Diana Ross. Part of this song says, “I'm spreading love, There's no need to fear, And I just feel so glad, Every time I hear; I'm coming out, I want the world to know, Got to let it show”.
Friends, We are leaving the wilderness! Yes, we’ve seen God move, we’ve witnessed miracles; but now, it’s time to move into ALL that we’ve been prepared for. There are blessings of obedience. God has lead us to this place He’s prepared for us, the land of Promises Fulfilled! It’s time to possess our promised land. This land is watched over by God Himself. This is BY GOD, FOR GOD and ALL ABOUT GOD and it’s going to be REALLY, REALLY GOOD!
“For the land, into which you are entering to possess it, is not like the land of Egypt from which you came, where you used to sow your seed and water it with your foot like a vegetable garden. “But the land into which you are about to cross to possess it, a land of hills and valleys, drinks water from the rain of heaven, a land for which the LORD your God cares; the eyes of the LORD your God are always on it, from the beginning even to the end of the year.” Deuteronomy 11:10-12
Dawn Baker is a Sold Out Warrior-Worshiper. Born and raised in Canada, Dawn met Jesus at 7 yrs old believing she’d discovered the biggest secret ever! Soon thereafter religion tried fitting her into molds but she just didn’t fit; her very real and personal encounter with Jesus changed her heart forever. Jesus was NEVER a "get out of hell free" card; He was all consuming Love to walk and talk with every day! Dawn has a story; a life woven with great loss, deep pain, abuse, cold and hunger BUT also the FAITHFULNESS of the God she met at 7. Today she owns a national physician recruiting company with a passion that burns in her, just like it did at 7 yrs old, that everyone will meet and KNOW HER JESUS.
