I like the new 5-pound note, I think it’s really cute, I personally like what’s cute, and I can easily spot anything of cute nature such as a baby, child, the opposite sex – a female and even pets. I have eyes for cuteness, and beauty and I appreciated things that look good to my sight. I do understand cuteness is a relative term, and what might seem cute to me may not be cute to you in the slightest. I understand that.
When the new £5 note first came out I didn’t want to let go of it, I mean it was hard to spend.
I regularly read God’s Word the Bible, and I realised that He always asked His prophets what do they see, and He (God) would use what they saw to give them a message. Basically God can use anything to talk to us, however, we have to be in the spirit, I mean tuned into God’s frequency.
One day, I was at work,( hotel) and I was in the spirit (tuned in), and a guess gave me a tip for £5, and it was the new one.
I gazed at the note for a moment; I wanted to hear what the Holy Spirit was saying at that point in time.
Well obviously seeing 5, it actually means Grace, so there and then I knew God was reminding me, that I have His divine Grace, Grace means unmerited favour.
I turned the note over and looked at William Churchill, and his famous quote comes to my spirit, which is Never, Never, Never give up.
I now combined the two things I could hear in the spirit, which is God has given me Grace never to give up.
So I put the £5 note on a piece of paper wrote the message I received and laminated it and stuck it on the wall by my bed. This was on 26th of December.
Today, however, I feel led to go a little deeper, a clearer insight to the speech he gave on October 29, 1941, and it goes as follows:
‘Never give in, Never give in, Never, Never, Never in nothing, great or small, large or petty – never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy’. (William Churchill, Oct 29, 1941)
It reminds me of my favourite Apostle- the Apostle Paul and in Philippians 3: 13-14 (The Voice version), he said
‘Brothers and sisters, as I said, I know I have not arrived; but there’s one thing I am doing: I’m leaving my old life behind, putting everything on the line for this mission. 14 I am sprinting toward the only goal that counts: to cross the line, to win the prize, and to hear God’s call to resurrection life found exclusively in Jesus the Anointed.’
Whatever we face in life God wants us to overcome, in the book of Revelation, Jesus was all about those that overcome. We have the tools- the Word and the Holy Spirit. However, we have to be full of the Holy Spirit.
Until next time – Keep Believing, Keep Hoping & Keep Loving.
