Thankful for Our GOOD Father
by Karla Maxwell

Our Heavenly Father is such a GOOD father. He is patient, loves us unconditionally; He wants the best for us and constantly blesses us even when we do not realize it. He is FULL of goodness, mercy, grace, unfailing love, and He considers us 100% righteous through the blood of Jesus.

I am so THANKFUL the Lord loves each of us with His steadfast, unfailing love and doesn't take a "grade average" based on our obedience and disobedience. Oh, could you imagine how that average would be in constant fluctuating motion? Every thought we have, every word we say, would be in that average. If the Lord did have a grading system and presented us with our final grade on the Day of Judgment, it is sad to say the majority of His children would have a failing grade or close to it. Thank you, Lord, for your tender mercies and abounding grace! Thank you for sending your Holy Son as a sacrifice for us so we are made 100% righteous and will one day be in Your presence. Thank you, Jesus, for taking our place in death so that through You, we have eternal life. Thank you, Holy Spirit, for being our Intercessor, taking care of all the details and making the burdens of this world light. You fight our battles yet give us the victory.

The Lord IS very forgiving, but as His children, He will judge us for our work and willingness to accomplish the assignments He gave us. I know I haven't done everything He has asked me to do in my lifetime, and it saddens me, but each day is a new day to try again. There is definitely no grade average for doing the Lord's work; either we do what He asks, or we do not. There is no grace. If we do not take an assignment from the Lord, He will give it to someone else, and we will miss His blessings. Our work will go through a fire at judgement. The assigned jobs that we put our heart into will come out as refined rewards, while any work accomplished but not assigned, or work done with a wrong attitude will be burned up.

I encourage you to work hard to please our Good Father. Remember you are 100% righteous, but also yearn to please Him by obeying Him and accomplishing the work He has before you. There is no greater joy and reward than knowing that because of you, His Kingdom was expanded. To God be the Glory!
Oh my goodness! Our fall retreat, Pursuit 10.19: Slaying Your Giants, was incredible! We started Friday night with our outstanding Praise and Worship duo, Raymond and Felicia Inman, then right into a Popcorn Praise and Worship time of just telling our Heavenly Father how wonderful He is. The entire weekend was drenched by the presence of Holy Spirit, and the enemy hated it! IT WAS AWESOME! Ladies accepted Christ for the first time or rededicated their lives to Him; first-time, reluctant, and seasoned speakers were outstanding accomplishing the work of the Lord by doing their God-given assignments; giants were slain and glory was given to our One True King! Thank you, Father!

Below is a video to a powerful, POWERFUL, declaration from Steven Furtick titled, "I WILL FIGHT". His declaration can be found on YouTube or in your phone app store if you would like to add it to your playlist. It is incredible and will get your spirit going, building you up to fight the enemy. We played this at the retreat Friday night to set the stage for the weekend, and again just before we departed Sunday afternoon. Powerful words. Was the word powerful mentioned?

Our next retreat is April 3rd-5th at the beautiful Three Mountain Retreat Center in Clifton, TX. Registration will be open after the first of the year for Pursuit 4.20: Dancing in the Rain ! You do not want to miss a Promise Helpers retreat! Mark the dates on your calendar NOW to make it a done deal, set in stone, no-turning-back opportunity to spend an incredible weekend with the Lord and sisters-in-Christ.

Promise Helpers is a non-profit Christian ministry for women that seeks to help women experience the fullness of God’s purpose and promises for them. Our desire is to bring women to a place of personal wholeness so they can bring wholeness to their marriages, homes, families and communities. Promise Helpers is women ministering to women, reminding one another of the promises of God and encouraging one another to implement those promises into their daily lives. The foundation of Promise Helpers is prayer, for apart from Jesus Christ we can do nothing.
