When You Go Splat

Beloved, please pray, as I have received a lot of information concerning serious needs in families.

Beloved, please pray, as I have received a lot of information concerning serious needs in families.

The enemy always attempts to use those who are closest to us to distract and hinder us, and rail against us.

“And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household,” Matthew 10:36 KJV.

Many feel like they have been slung into a wall like plaster. *SPLAT* But remember as we are slung into and hit that wall, God is turning it for good because it is building us up and HIS kingdom; the powerful walls of fortification.

We can never reach our potential by resisting the process. Yes, it is hard, yes it breaks us, and takes us making it feel like it hurts us in many ways.

When we look at the ingredients of plaster it can remind us of portions of our lives that are rough, dried up, and messy but beloved, very necessary!

We don’t often see ourselves as messy. However, when we dry and cure in the SON, let us not become hardened through the process and let us not crack under the pressure for we need to become fortified and strong.

“Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness,” Colossians 1:11 KJV.

How many of us feel like we have been slung and suddenly we feel the SPLAT against a wall? We feel like we have gone as far as we can go.

Beloved, we are like that mix of that plaster having within us the binding ingredients of cement. What is amazing is that once dried it makes a protected place in building the Spiritual walls of defense!

Yes, the process is rough and hard at times but remember what it is all for especially those whom we love and we serve in His body.

So if you find yourself out of your comfort zone realize there are reasons both for your growth and others. And remember God has warriors praying for you that you will stand and be that example of strength under pressure!

A Word of Exhortation!

We are the emerging soldiers of The LORD. You chose to give your life in God’s Army. You don’t belong to yourself anymore, you are His.

We are the emerging soldiers of The LORD. You chose to give your life in God’s Army. You don’t belong to yourself anymore, you are His.

You have chosen to follow Him, and the revelation has illuminated your mind! You are sold out!

You have met a fork in the road. You have been chosen to follow another path as the one you are currently on has dried up! Often prior to major change, it will appear that everything dries up and maxed out.

You have gone as far as you can in the current situation. It’s time to go permanent change of station. Going a different way can make you feel insecure and fearful.

Cast off restraint and watch what The LORD will do! Let God make room for your gifts! Let God announce and reveal!

It will be exciting to see what The LORD has done! HAS DONE beloved! Praise HIM! Look what The LORD has done! God’s grace shall pace you, chase you, bless, and overtake you!

A heavy measure of Grace is poured out when HE opens your mouth and fills it. Be silent ALL flesh! Hear the Words of The LORD! You shall communicate the very oracles of God!

It will be so exciting to watch those whom God is raising up! They shall emerge from the deep as they ride on the crest of the wave! Praise The LORD!

God is giving the grace to handle weighty promotions. The spoken, written, walked out Word of God shall multiply beyond our traditional methods.

Look at the new harvest fields beloved! Social media! The LORD shall invade every field and fold of ministry in cyberspace. The living church of Cyberspace! God is limitless! His expanse is immeasurable!

Fear NOT beloved of God! You shall literally walk out the living Word of God; for we stand on HIS Word.

Be still and KNOW He is GOD!

Remedy to a Sick Heart

Where you are truly loved and truly needed, you are to be received and treated as a gift from God.

Where you are truly loved and truly needed, you are to be received and treated as a gift from God.

A gift from God is to be treasured and nurtured so that it will grow in the soil of forgiveness and acceptance.  No relationship can survive betrayal, lies, and deceit.

Secrecy, lies, and pretense is a slippery slope that destroys trust and lives.  If there is no trust there is nothing to hold the relationship together.

For where there is strife and contention there is every evil work.  When jealousy and envy come it calls to itself division and a house divided against itself it shall not stand.

Pretty much after these things have ransacked the relationship it won’t survive unless both parties seek deep counsel and are ready to work together and when one won’t do the work it prolongs the inevitable, it won’t survive.

If you are the faithful believer in Christ and you have done all the work and continue beating yourself up in condemnation and guilt, it is misplaced.

You must forgive yourself first and forgive the person.  Part of being able to forgive is that we must love your neighbor as yourself.  Loving self is hard to do if you are down on yourself with blame and shame.

You cannot make someone love you or love God.  We are not God or The Holy Ghost. Conviction can only come by The Holy Ghost not you.  After doing all to stand, you stood.

However, after a long time, you found yourself slipping and backsliding and you found yourself regressing from your destiny and steadfastness in Christ.

You follow God and take back everything the devil stole from you. However, man has a free will to choose and you won’t be able to interfere in that.

There are things God can’t do.  He cannot lie and he won’t take our free choice or free will away.

God can’t even answer a prayer that goes against the person’s free will.  The only thing left is to forgive them and let them go.

You can become so spiritually sick, when you hang on to a dead situation, especially when the situation is taking you down in the process.

Hope deferred makes a heartsick.  Forgive yourself, forgive them and let them go.

Rizpah was a mother of two sons who were hanged and when she found them she stayed there with her two dead sons from the days of harvest, not allowing any wild beast or birds to land on them, and she tried to make her sons live!

But she was out of her rational mind, yet she was a mother guarding the bones of her sons just hanging there, for she would not leave them.

You can get spiritually and physically sick when we hang on to dead situations.  Are we like Rizphah?

Do we have situations that are not working and you have tried to keep them alive for a very long time?

Sometimes it is hard to let go and move into closure and be healed.

“But the king took the two sons of Rizpah the daughter of Aiah, whom she bare unto Saul, Armoni and Mephibosheth; and the five sons of Michal the daughter of Saul, whom she brought up for Adriel the son of Barzillai the Meholathite: and he delivered them into the hands of the Gibeonites, and they hanged them in the hill before the LORD: and they fell all seven together, and were put to death in the days of harvest, in the first days, in the beginning of barley harvest.
And Rizpah the daughter of Aiah took sackcloth, and spread it for her upon the rock, from the beginning of harvest until water dropped upon them out of heaven, and suffered neither the birds of the air to rest on them by day, nor the beasts of the field by night,”   
2 Samuel 21:8-10 KJV.

When you have done all you know to do, there comes a time when God will sever the baggage and bondage you are under.

Dust your feet, change directions, and move into the pathway of destiny.  Move out of spiritual abuse into freedom in Christ!

To those who are being elevated by God, just realize people will be envious and jealous of the favor of God on your life; even in our own homes.

Those who are insecure will seek to hold on to you and convince you how wrong you are to obey God.

In their own estimation, they compare themselves among themselves.  Everyone has their own gifts and anointing, why try to compare yourself and mirror your image to a person?

Let go, beloved of God, let it go, let it go, and move into exactly the location God has for you.

It all starts with our personal relationship with God.  There is a major work in secret.

We are to work on our own relationship with God.  God will do all the advancing as He is the author and finisher of our faith.  He sees your determination and obedience and He will reward you openly.

Is Your Tire Flat?

Sometimes we have got to pull away from everything and everyone, because of the pull of this world to gain control over us.

 

Sometimes we have got to pull away from everything and everyone, because of the pull of this world to gain control over us.

We all have all sorts of distractions vying for our attention, and in many instances, they are important and are needed, but there are things we must do or we face consequences.

The most important part of our day is to pray and begin our day with The LORD, for if we don’t, we will find ourselves in so many situations, needs, and before you know it, we haven’t had any time with The LORD.

We must take time with God not make time!

As we become determined to keep God first every day and diligently take time, we will have The Holy Spirit leading, guiding, and directing our pathway into God’s Will.

Part of God’s purpose is that we learn how to put to death the deeds of the flesh to grow thereby.

When the WORD of The LORD came among us, He came to live and die showing us where HIS power lies.  Paul knew The LORD’s Passion and understood the price he had to pay to say, “I die daily,” (1 Corinthians 15:31)

When we get off track and try to make time for God, by the end of the day we find we had no time to sit before The LORD.

Satan especially fights our quiet intimate time with our Bridegroom.  He knows once we see the power and the ability of God in us, he will lose ground and we will take the spoils of victory!

Developing our quiet time with God is first!  When we understand and get the revelation that what we have in us is so much greater than all of Satan’s plans because what we have in us is so powerful that Satan sends legions after legions of his demons to fight against you!

This is much like it was when Elisha and his servant were surrounded by the armies of the king to stop the Word.  Beloved of God, when you carry the Word, you are accompanied by many Angels.

When God wants to speak to us, He will do it regardless of whatever circumstances we find ourselves in. (2 Kings 6:12)  We serve a God who shows us the plans of the enemy, even in his own bedchamber!

The enemy knows if we ever find out just how powerful our Prayer is with God, he will know his plans are destroyed!  He may have planned one purpose against you for weeks or years!  Then, in one moment — it is revealed and destroyed!

Satan has lost ground with you and all the plans he had to bring destruction are thwarted.  You cannot curse who God has blessed.

He knows when we find out who we are in Christ, we will be unstoppable!  So beloved, the enemy is always trying to throw a wrench in our wheel.

Your tire maybe flat, but it is designed to be round and take us places, but will we pull in and receive the life source…Zoe, God’s kind of life and keep on going?

The LORD watches this world — especially our world — and He understand the fight or flight motivation we find ourselves in.  Just as Jesus died to his flesh, life and purpose, so we too must die daily to our flesh and the deeds of the flesh.

I cannot say the battles cease in all cases, but I do say HE is so worth every pain and heartache we endure!

Daily learning how to walk out our lives daily as we abide closely to The LORD, is so much greater than we can ever imagine or experience in this life.

God is vast and His Kingdom beyond time.  None of us have it all, but we are like parts to a vast puzzle.

As we yield to becoming “fit” for the Master’s Use, our purpose will come together with others of like heart, mind, and spirit because now instead of seeing our own part, we begin to see the other’s purpose as we connect and see the vision!

Yes, it is exciting to get glimpses of God’s vision, especially in these end times!

In this temporal life as a Christian, there are others who are watching us see what we do.  But though we feel alone, we are not alone.

God sees, Angels see, demons see, and there are people who are interested in our lives, whether a brother, a friend, your dad or mom, people are watching what we practice preaching with our life styles.

Whom do we represent?

“For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.  Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.  I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.  For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: but I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord.  So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin,”   
Romans 7:20-25 KJV.
