Now Is…

Sharon Couchman

One recent morning when I awoke the Spirit of the Lord spoke to me two words: NOW IS…!! While inquiring of the Lord about this, He responded by saying, “Whatever you need, wherever you are, whatever you are doing NOW IS…” I replied, “Now is what, Lord?”

He continued:





I began to understand more explicitly that God has now appointments, now healings, and now connections for us. He has now breakthroughs, now finances, now relationships and now provisions for His children. Wow! God is in the NOW of our lives. We all need fresh bread from Heaven, fresh guidance, new strength, specific wisdom, etc.

Every provision for healing, wholeness and deliverance that you will ever need was attained for you through the victory Jesus won at Calvary and the resurrection. All the things you are praying for are included in the salvation package. When Christ is in us, we have access to the One who is the Provision and Provider of everything.

What a wonderful Savior, what a wonderful Lord! Be encouraged today that you serve a God who is Ever-Present. He is in the NOW of your life and He NOW IS willing, able, and ready to help you in whatever situation you are experiencing. Praise the Lord!

As you read the following scriptures I pray that they will strengthen and enlighten you as to the abundant supply that God has for His people. If you need a job, He knows where that job is. If you need wisdom, HE says to ask Him for it and He will give it to you because He is wisdom. If you need comfort and peace, He is the source of comfort and He is the God of peace. Let God’s Word change your perception of your circumstances and find wholeness in our God who is present with you NOW!

(1) Christian, NOW IS the time to worship God!

John 4:23 KJV – “But the hour cometh, and NOW IS, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.”

(2) NOW IS the time to pray for unsaved loved ones! This could be their day for joining the Family of God!

2 Corinthians 6:2 AMP – “For He says, In the time of favor (of an assured welcome) I have listened to and heeded your call, and I have helped you on the day of deliverance (the day of salvation). Behold, NOW IS truly the time for a gracious welcome and acceptance [of you from God]; behold, NOW IS the day of salvation!”

(3) NOW IS the time to seek God more fervently than ever before! NOW IS always the right time to believe God’s promises. His Word promises that all our needs ARE AND WILL BE MET IN HIM.

Philippians 4:19 KJV – “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

Matthew 6:33-34 NCV – “The thing you should want most is God’s kingdom and doing what God wants. Then all these other things you need will be given to you.”

King James translation puts it this way: “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

(4) NOW IS THE TIME TO BELIEVE AND PRACTICE GOD’S WORD! Live your life according to God’s instructions…

Proverbs 4:20-22 KJV – My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. 21) Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. 22) For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

(5) NOW IS your time to praise Him for the wonderful gift of Eternal life through Christ. Thank God that as a born-again Christian you have an Eternal home! God has promised you Eternal life and that is truly something to get excited about!

1 Timothy 4:8 KJV – …but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that NOW IS, and of that which is to come.”

John 3:16 – For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.


*****If you have not received Jesus as your Savior — NOW IS YOUR DAY OF SALVATION!! Let God cleanse you of your sins and begin life anew in Him.

Pray this simple prayer out loud: “Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God. I believe that you died for me and rose again. I ask you to forgive me for all my sins, wash me and cleanse me. I receive you as my Savior and ask You to come into my heart today. Thank you for loving me. I give my life to you. Use me for your Kingdom. In your name I pray. Amen”
