Being Taken for Granted?

There is nothing in my life that is more crucial and delightful than to please The LORD by obeying HIS WORD!

Beloved, oh how I love The LORD Jesus!  Oh, to sing and dance!  To study and seek HIS Face in prayer!

There is nothing in my life that is more crucial and delightful than to please The LORD by obeying HIS WORD!

The more I deny myself and remove myself from the cares of this life the more I want to please The LORD!  I love and care for The LORD and HIS beloved Sheep!

We have a personal responsibility with The LORD and we are held accountable for what we know is true.  When we sin and love the things of this world that grieve His heart, we will be accountable.

There is a great danger when we gradually move ourselves away from our personal communication (prayer) and our obedience to The LORD’s Will, which is HIS WORD!

We are babes for a season but after that we are to be trained up as children are to their parents and to listen and obey.  If we as children didn’t obey our parents we were disciplined.  That discipline proves the Love of the Father to His children!

The process of becoming lazy and not developing our own relationship with The LORD, can open us up to deception, error, and extreme teaching.

We must learn to develop a dependence on God’s Word as we develop in our prayer life and steady diet of the WORD of God.  It is the easy route to depend on others experiences and teachings instead of God’s.

There are many wonderful leaders and teachers out there that the WORD of God is the final authority of their belief system.  These leaders are accountable to God for those whom they must give an account.

In the same way, God knows where we are spiritually and knows when we become lax and rebel.

It is a very dangerous thing to fall into the hands of the living God especially for those who are leading God’s sheep astray!  There is a process that is dangerous and it causes us to become dull of hearing and we can become blind not being able to see the truth.

We must have such a love for The LORD Jesus Christ that goes so much deeper than any other love we have in this life, regardless if it is a person, place or thing! God is a jealous God!

Oh Glory!  To read the Bible and hear Him speak to me through those pages is the ultimate for me!  Oh, how I love God’s Word and His commands!

I know that when He corrects me, it proves His love for me!

I want God to teach me and to show me His ways and teach me His paths so that I will walk in truth!

I obey God’s words because I love HIM and my nature has been changed to where I don’t desire the things of this world that grieve His Heart.  I don’t want God to be unhappy with me!

I was given a prophetic lesson this past week.  I was feeling taken advantage of by someone that I won’t mention, and as I related this to the person of how it hurt me, God entered my thoughts and reminded me of how I take HIM for granted, when I don’t give him the attention he desires and deserves.

I am so thankful that I can know God this way and experience a close walk with Him that gives me His Peace.

This whole thing about Jesus Christ from the beginning of time till now, it is about having a real love walk, relationship with the lover of our souls.

How many of us have taken The LORD for granted?  Oh!  All I could do was weep when I heard The LORD say that I had taken Him for granted!

But regardless of the tears and pain it caused, it drove me to sorrow and to repentance, by turning my heart “deeply” back to him!

Return to The LORD with all your heart!  In fasting, weeping and mourning and rend your heart and not your garment.

We repent by turning away from what displeases God.  How do we know what displeases God?

We learn by knowing Him through prayer and by knowing and living the Word of God!  The Word of God became flesh and dwelt among us.

Just as Jesus was the Word made flesh, The LORD wants our lives to reflect His nature and character and to be measured by His Word as our plumb line to HIS whole house, which is the body of Christ.

The LORD is jealous over us, and He is very serious about that fact.  We cannot separate The LORD Jesus from the HOLY BIBLE, as they are one and in agreement.

If you do things and practice things that are not in agreement with the Word of God, it is suspect to error.

God’s Word is our only standard for Truth!  His Word is what we base all things on!

I don’t care what type of spiritual experiences and feelings you have had, if it isn’t found in God’s Word, it is suspect, and the enemy is very clever and spiritual and wants to lead you away from the truth of God’s Word.

Feelings and experiences in God can be awesome — but if our experiences aren’t found in God’s Word, we need to repent and move away from error and return to the Truth!  The BIBLE!

Deception is just that!  Deception is the gradual process of experiences, feelings, and extreme teaching that are soaked into our soul to blind us to the truth and to bring us into error.

Jesus warned us about false prophets and false teachings!  Their methods are inspired by Hell to draw us away from the Truth of God’s Word.

Deception is found and practiced in many Christian named circles and in the names of various denominations and groups.

These various groups base and use all sorts of pseudo spiritual experiences, feelings, music, expressions, extreme teachings, and error of all sorts.

The Bible is the only sure way we can be secure of anything and everything that is out there regardless of their claims.

If we cannot trust God’s Word to keep us on track, we open ourselves to all sorts of bogus claims that put God’s name on any and everything out there.

It doesn’t matter how spiritual the “feeling is” my question was, is it found in the Word of God?

Do you have people in your lives that take you for granted?

I encourage you to search your heart and see where, what, and whom our love is centered on.

Have we taken The LORD for granted?  Look to God and turn away in repentance from taking him for granted.

We must repent of our love for things of this world instead of HIM; the creature instead of the creator.  He longs for our time in prayer and intimacy.  To love HIM is to obey Him.

Jesus is the WORD and the WORD became flesh and dwelt among us!  Oh, how wonderful it is to be used to prophecy encouragement and change, but beloved, there are so many out there who want to do what God says is wrong and call it good!

I love, love, love to encourage people, but when God leads me to confront sin, it is hard on my flesh and sometimes it is hard that I have to face you, but I love God and love you enough to stand against the sin!

I know HE wants us to hear him clearly and that takes prayer, the study of the Word of God and Worshipping Him in Spirit and in Truth!  Those of you who know me well, know I love people but know I love God more.

Oh beloved, to know The LORD is so wonderful and once we truly seek, find and know him, He changes our lives being conformed into His image!

Beloved of God, we are so loved and we are in a serious time like none other, and we must remain at the door like the wise virgins, not as the foolish ones who weren’t ready to go in.

This time is unlike no other time in known history and it is very critical time, and we must pray for the ones who are deceived!

It is for God’s great love and mercy for us that he sends us warnings to get us ready.  There we be no one with Jesus that did not choose to be there.

It is your choice…. but as for me and my house?  I will serve The LORD!

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.
But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all The LORD delivered me.
Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; and that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works,”   2 Timothy 3:1-17.

Spontaneous Prophecy

For The Glory of The LORD shall be revealed.  All flesh shall see it together for the mouth of The LORD hath spoken it.

Wow!  What a continuation and confirmation in clarity as You are forming letters into code, expressing revelation that can only be seen, told or caught, describing at best only in human terms, but natural and divine doth dwell within the high stakes race to the finish line.

For The Glory of The LORD shall be revealed.  All flesh shall see it together for the mouth of The LORD hath spoken it.

We shall be known as we are known by The LORD.  For limitations are in minuscule seconds now compared to former time and space, for God’s beloved having been hit from every angle imaginable are being pressed into a higher state of mind and spirit without limiting gates.

So, this corruptible life continues refining in unending pressing towards the goal of our high calling.

By keeping this mortal life at bay, we strive for the mastery as this world holds no other key.

The more we are pressed, we rise in victory giving great glory to the Master who conducts the greatest symphony of all time, calling for the invitation of the marriage supper of the Lamb.

The Church triumphant shall rise and shine for her light has come and the glory of The LORD has risen upon her!

For those who are caught up in this season and dimension can only identify and be expressed as a leap of destiny within this final quest.

Not all can understand the delectable light shining bright bringing an unveiling of things into His marvelous light.

These have held from times and times ago for such a day that we could have never known!  As immeasurable quaking and shaking continue, not simply a shaking as many have spoken in cliché for we are being positioned for a divine explosion sitting on the powder keg apex in time.

Such epic transformations and proportions that those of this world could never understand or know.

For there has been a true line drawn in the spiritual sand and many are falling clearly away as stated in shocking terminology, rejecting the only way for their soul’s redemption yet in hardened state they turn away.

As Samuel was rebuked for grieving too long for King Saul, so too we must not linger long with those who made their free will final call.

Even as Lot’s wife turned into a pillar of salt, she belonged to another by her decision.  By their fruits you shall fully know them.

As for God’s elect, these are being cycled continually being set free of many strings and chains.  For it is God Almighty getting ready to showcase an amazing display of His final curtain call.

To those whom have been amazingly tried, tested and found true whom the world cannot fathom, these are God Almighty’s witnesses, reserved for these monumental events!

Regardless of the bait and traps set, onward we go and upward with no thought for tomorrow for we counted it all for the call.

The Divine Curtain Call!

It takes faith, hope and discipline to pick up our cross and follow in Christ’s steps. 

 

Sometimes the inability and limitations of our humanity fail to properly express the fullness that we are so eagerly hungry, thirsty, and filled with hope.

These seasons come much like an event on the stage of life where once the scene ends the curtain closes.  However, what remains is hidden and skillfully being crafted by God for the set time of His favor.

Yes, there are those whom God takes of this world to showcase His glorious grace as He plans from the beginning of time to mold and squeeze the divine skin of wine revealing within the fresh new message in a modern-day role revealing the truth of the greatest story of old.

The Ancient of Days never delays even though we may feel wasted and cast aside, there are always prophetic plans in motion that God has devised.

For isn’t it said, that even going through the valley of Baca, He makes a well springing up and He brings rain that fills the pools of life again?

“Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them.
Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God,”   Psalm 84:5-7 KJV.

It is through the times when things are veiled, dark and hidden that our resolve is deeply tested.

Our faith is tested when we are holding on to this hope that we cannot see.  Believing in hope and through that hope we are not ashamed! It is through this season that we find out what we believe within our total being.

God already knows what we believe, but He wants us to see what we really believe.  It is during these times of testing that conflicting mindsets surface when we are pressed and we wonder why it is so seemingly dark, dead and dry.

“And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.And patience, experience; and experience, hope,”    Romans 5:3-5 KJV.

For who has hope for a tree that has been hewn down?

Why would confusing, doubleminded times come?

God doesn’t do anything without a dynamic purpose in His mind.  You are His creation and His design as the master builder builds you so you will be defined as you are prepared to step into your destiny divine.

God is the same yesterday, today and forevermore.  He hasn’t changed His mind towards you.  He loves you and nothing changes that fact.

It is during these times that doubts surface when pressure reveals the reality of our own belief system.

When we face what we really are, then we can find the revelation of finished work of Christ and the rest of faith in His ability to be kept by the power of God.

It is in this place that The LORD lays out His plan and defines the next scene of our life.  God wants to take our worry and give us a real-life story!

That’s what it’s all about!  The Church and the world need to hear the message of redemption by hearing the individual message of our own story.

We are the living, walking testament of God, as epistles seen and read by all men.

Though the times of the drawn curtain seem dark, and not much seems to be happening, this is the most critical, revealing evidence of our belief of faith! Move forward in faith, hope and love and do not deviate!

Much has been hidden, yet behind the scenes things are being remodeled; the set is coming together, the curtain is beginning to open for the next scene of events!

Soon you will again see what was waged against you and now becomes the source of our growth in faith and fortitude.

However, it is what goes on behind the scenes of your life that is measured by God.  Like that drawn curtain; many cannot see their worth, value and destiny that God has waiting for them!

God’s plan and measure is to come up higher by beginning to understand what Christ did so that we are able to function steadfast in understanding the new level of grace and mercy towards ourselves and others!

There are many levels in the kingdom of God and it takes those hidden times behind the curtain to learn to be led by faith without seeing a thing happening.

It takes faith, hope and discipline to pick up our cross and follow in Christ’s steps.

As we learn these things we will be prepared vessels fit for our Masters use as he uses our story to help win the lost and to build up the body of Christ.

The Old Frequency

“You have gone as far as you can go in your current state!  I AM releasing Great and New Expectation, a New and Living Way!  Receive it My beloved!”

For many of you have measured yourselves by past victories.

There are those who have been attempting to stand for “what worked in the past” of the old frequency.  Yet your experience and expectations have clearly felt very detached in this season.

Accordingly, we thought it would always remain the same; same friends, ministry groups and for some, the depth of our perceived pain and loss.

Yes, we took a deep hit on our heart and soul.  We never thought this could happen by those who pledge their undying love.

We had high expectations that people we love would always remain, yet we have watched them go one by one.

However, we are God’s creation, and He has brought us to the kingdom for such a time as this.  Beloved, God always has a ram in the bush.  Never doubt it!

I see many betrayals, and many receiving rejections, spiritual abuse, discouragement and many things that have kept you in a very limited stride are being severed off.

You are being enlightened as you run the race with patience; in a more stream lined effect.  God is lighting your load and skimming off everything from this last season so that you shall obtain the benefits.

“Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive: thou hast received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that The LORD God might dwell among them.  Blessed be The LORD, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah,”    Psalm 68:18-19 KJV.

God knows the many upheavals you have endured.  Yet His message will come across even when we have no idea at that moment!

However, these things must come, because The LORD is enlarging your heart that you may run the way of His commands!

God is enlarging our territory physically, in your soul and your spirit. In Your World!  The former desolations cannot come to you as you are not to remain with all men.

We all have seasons, and that includes that God can move us wherever He wants us to be.

God is fine tuning us because even now when you plug into the old frequency, you hear static.

However, I see that The LORD is bringing you into His frequency of sound and alignment.  God is closing old doors of familiarity where we were comfortable and in having all our net-work of connections.

God is doing a shifting and aligning as we yield to the new beginning in various ways and avenues.

For some it has been excruciating painful to have to watch people we love to go through this process but it must be mastered.  Before we can ever be ready to handle more, God must handle you!

Many have felt no validity in their spiritual life, but The LORD is opening brand new doors of opportunity and expectancy.

We must understand that it isn’t that we are losing so many friends, He is making new routes to all the highway and byways.

Beloved of God, the facts are that He is shifting and there will be new friends, sisters and brothers are coming and waiting to hear what you will say!

God is shifting us into a new neutral gear that will cause us to coast for a season, but this coasting although it seems like a waste, is actually preparing us ahead to carry weightier words, exploits and weightier explosive manifestations of God’s glory.

But why?  Souls for the Kingdom!

“So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.
And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.
And The LORD said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.
For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.
And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them, If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?”
   Luke 14:21-28 KJV.

Just as things began to dry up at the brook Cherith and the ravens came with no other meat.  God gave the prophet a new word to go…

It is in the times when we think we have nothing left to offer, and we want to call it quits that God gives us the added benefits!  This is the time he sends us a new and living way.

Our flesh is screaming out wanting to conform with what was and had been acceptable!

To those we once shared the communion with, identifying with the blood and body of Christ, and to wash each other’s feet, we are to identify with each of these feet who bring good news.

With man we will never reach perfection this side of heaven.  However, there are those whom are so close in intimacy with The LORD.

After we bear our souls that make us feel vulnerable, detached, we will learn over and over that resistance and struggle are from birth till death.

The struggle is on!  It is on daily, every week, month, and year and if we never had the struggle we would never grow, never change and get the strength that comes from resistance!

“You have gone as far as you can go in your current state!  I AM releasing Great and New Expectation, a New and Living Way!  Receive it My beloved!”

Falsity Exposed!

Do you really want to be in ministry? Do you think you have a high calling of God on your life?

Do you really want to be in ministry?

Do you think you have a high calling of God on your life?

Do you truly know the way of the cross?

Are we picking up our cross and following Jesus every day?

I can tell you the truth; The degree of our calling and purpose will be the level of preparations as we learn to grow deep and our roots grow deep as the winds blow strong.

During storms, we may lose every piece of fruit and leaf on our tree, but when we are established by God in our root system we will learn to sway with the winds but the storms will have no power in uprooting us from our life source.

To be rooted deeply in Christ takes our yeildedness towards the process of knowing Him and our willingness to face anything and anyone in our determination to follow HIM.

In becoming the vessel fit for the Masters use will cost us everything!  It is through the process of life and death to self that processes us through the measurement of trials, tribulations, temptations, loss of all things and sorts, even to sorrow that leads to death itself.

The depth of our heart is unearthed through our experiences.  Even though God see’s the end result we must go through the process that proves to “ourselves” and exposes our capacity to be able to carry the weightiness and vastness of the secrets of God.

God doesn’t share His secrets to just anyone.  We must be found faithful to HIM and HE knows when we are ready and that happens.

To be filled and controlled by the Holy Spirit happens to those who have learned to wait on Him through experience.

To be of corporate use, we must learn to yield to the Holy Spirits training.  As we learn the process through Christ, He will prepare us to expand exponentially within by going through the process of death to self, arising in newness of life in Christ.

This isn’t a one-time deal either; the bible tells us to be continually filled with the Holy Spirit.

When we all fail and miss the mark and sin, there is always forgiveness when we truly recognize our condition and state of existence and repent.

Repentance is learning to turn away from that sin.  We learn throughout all our lives how to respond to our Father, and what breaks his heart.

God does not look for robots in doing just what is expected.  He wants us to respond to Him as Father and Abba.

We His children must realize our love relationship with Abba is to learn and know the nature and character of Christ.

This relationship and repentance are part of learning to walk in the increased processes of restoration and reconciliation of our continued learning with Him.

Returning to God in repentance is not to return to religious bondage and scary fear nor is it to serve through drudgery and robotics.

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind,”    2 Timothy 1:7 KJV.

“The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee,”   Jeremiah 31:3 KJV.

“As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent,”   Revelations 3:19 KJV.

Thanks be to God that the sacrifice of Christ was done as the final payment for all the sin in the world.

However, there is an action we must apply through repentance.  When we fall and sin, we must be truly sorry apply that blood once again to cover our mistakes as we must turn away from sin.

There is always hope and a new beginning as long as we have breath in us, for it is Christ in us the hope of Glory!

As we learn through yielding our entire lives to full capacity, we thus learn what the abundant life is all about!  As we learn that overflow isn’t just for us and our experiences, but more importantly, it is for others.

“To the direct degree of His purpose in us, will be the proportion in weightiness we will be made to carry.”

When weight lifters fail and injure themselves they must refrain from training.  There is a portion of time necessary to heal and once they return to training these must start back at a lower level to prepare those muscles to handle greater weight again.

It’s a process beloved. If we are determined to carry the weightiness of Christ, we must be trained, seasoned, and patient through the process of healing when we fail, and are injured.

“The LORD will not give you something you are clearly not ready for.”

God will not give us more than we can handle or bear.  The LORD knows what we have been built with and when it appears or feels that we are coming apart at our very seams, we must remember the cost of the cross.

Our experience at that moment may feel like the end of our lives, but HE promised us would be with us and that He will not give us more than we can bear.

I am not saying this is easy, as depending on the depth of price and calling, God has you in mind, and in the mind of God your very plan has been in motion since before in your mother’s womb.

God seasons us through the process of time and when there is a greater anointing there are greater seasons of training and the greater opposition.

Do you know before you can truly be a vessel fit for His use you must be crushed like grapes in all your temporal glory to make wine?

Being crushed is being put to death of what we were, to become what HE is; and is something much bigger.  The process is hard but it is necessary to make you into that vessel filled with HIS SPIRIT.

If a ministry tells you it is all good with no bad they lie!  They may teach you to never confess anything negative, or they may tell you to suppress the truth by continually saying you’re blessed when you are actually in despairing misery in need of help!

These false ministers confess how together they are but it’s a lie!  If we could see behind the scenes the hypocrisy and false doctrine we would run!  These are the type of ministries that are false, legalistic and led by pride filled bondages.

If you find yourself in one of these types of ministries, it is best to run and get out every and anyway you can, because it will never get any better.

Getting free from this type of abuse will give yourself good mental health and there are plenty of good ministries out there that follow the way of the truth of Christ and His Church.

Pray and find the one you fit in.

Serving Christ is the hardest thing you will ever obtain but the most satisfying and awarding.  Truly knowing HIM and finding him in the deep cannot be measured against, for HE IS PERFECTION!

We do measure ourselves against Him, because it isn’t us who live, but CHRIST who lives in us!  To really know Him in Spirit and Truth will make us the most influential person in many of our relationships.

Learning to be who we are in Christ is all about knowing HIM in ALL seasons that makes us REAL and well rounded.  Our identity is found in Christ, and those who be as Christ have crucified the flesh and the lust thereof.

We cannot produce The Fruit of The Spirit in our own power for we are simply the conduit of his power.  The Fruit of The Spirit is produced through seasons.

We are planted, fertilized watered, pruned, cut back, go through seasons of change so we will grow and thrive.  Christ’s Zoe’ vine life flows through our branches and it is not our power that does it.

We are to learn how to abide in relationship with Christ so that the power of Christ will be made known.  For He must increase and we must decrease.

How can we help others if we pretend perfection?  What a lie and A very BIG revelation of false teaching, prophecy and false churches.

Beware of these types of people and be not conformed to their rapt approval in attempting to flatter you and puff you up later to capture you in a web of deceit!

Once they ensnare you, you find yourselves after their attention and supposed acceptance, and you cannot understand why they treat you differently and keep you unsure of your acceptance in everything and unsure how to step.

You quickly become a number to them and one they control. Jezebel works like these, and she still weaves her works today in many ministry and churches.

If you are not as free to leave as you were to come in, you are in a cult!

If condemnation (rather than a healthy disappointment to see you leave) and emotional manipulations are seeking to control you, be glad that you left!   It will never get better.

“We are called to be part of the body of Christ.  You are free to serve, free to live and free to do right!”

The stronger the control and bondage of false ministers, ministries and churches, the more likely you are to face unpleasant and unhealthy consequences.

Please keep praying and look until you find what gives you good mental and spiritual health and treat people with respect and honor.

Reinvent Your Life!

Do you feel totally exhausted, extremely agitated and frustrated to the point of total mental, physical and spiritual failure?

“Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life”   Proverbs 13:12 KJV.

Do you feel totally exhausted, extremely agitated and frustrated to the point of total mental, physical and spiritual failure?

Does it feel so different than you have ever experienced?

Are you facing another trip around the mountain in the spiritual desert?

Are the frustrations in your ministry, job, home, family or any other life situation beyond anything you have ever felt?

There is a reason!

God in His Mercy is allowing such pressure to bring us to the breaking point.  He is very serious about His Love and deep concern and purpose for us!

He will not allow you to press through into the next stage until His work in us has been completed in this current one.

The pressure has frustrated you for a very long time, not realizing the source has kept you chained to things you do not comprehend.

These things are being made manifest and suddenly you are getting glimpses of things you thought were dealt with long ago.

Things that have kept you stuck to past failures and loss.  You haven’t understood the deep grief, sorrow and mourning of soul.

However, the pressure is bringing deep rooted issues to the surface.

You have not understood what to do as you are desperate and feel like you are going down, drowning to the point of death, grasping at anything or anyone that you feel could help you.

This great disappointment has surfaced in areas that have cost you with family, friends and opportunities.

As you see the glimpses surfacing, it brings great mental pain and anguish like you felt so long ago when the events initially happened.

What’s worse, is you are not able to rectify the situations of those who were deeply hurt and are no longer there.

You have been haunted by deeply embedded mistakes.  What had stressed you manifested physically and became stress to others.

Realizing the facts, caused deep remorse.  It caused you to back away because you do not want to damage others.  We become jaded from life and with those who truly want to help us because of preexisting conditions.

You have carried a deep-seated root in your heart unrealized.  You knew something was wrong but never fully comprehended it till now.  To even think of trusting and surrendering to another causes great shaking anxiety.

Due to the past wounds, you fear and will not trust those who are in authority.  It is causing you to be afraid to look at yourself and what you think God is saying to you.

You think authority figures will be like all the others.  Yet in all the fear and confusion, deep down you really want to begin again, for your destiny cries deeply within!

Even in such vexation of heart and mind, the vestiges of pride surface.  You don’t want to admit you need help.

Humility and obedience open the door; Faith drives all fear away, for faith worketh by love.  Reach out for help, He is standing at the very door.

Your heart has carried great disappointment, sadness and disillusionment, in feeling like you have been disqualified due to loss of time and hope.  The LORD is here to establish and heal you beloved; Trust Him today.

It is God’s will and desire to deliver and heal you today.  In the depths of your very soul make a move towards what you believe he is saying.

Trust Him and stop worrying about what people think about you.  Don’t be afraid to reach out to whom God shows you.

God has not stripped you of your rank, He wants us stripped of every weight that so easily besets us.

He may have removed your authority over others for a season, but he never removes His Gift.  It is His Love that desires you to be free.  He has come to set the captive free.

Are you giving place to things that you thought were long gone, past and settled?

Are you giving place to thoughts of past issues about people and even negative thoughts about yourself?

Beloved, hear me!

By doing this, you are inviting the accuser of the brethren back in to wreak havoc!  You will chase the wind and reap the whirlwind.  You must let go and let God!

Have you felt the condemnation of self-hatred and unforgiveness in your own heart? Sometimes forgiving ourselves is the hardest lesson we will ever learn. Forgive yourself beloved.

If you have done your best, and they can’t receive your forgiveness, it’s best to forgive them, release them and let them go!

Like the caterpillar shrouds itself in a cocoon in seemingly death of what it was, the process must be complete before newness can come.

Take a step of faith, step out of the boat and test the waters.  Show God and everyone that you are going for the mother-load!  You are headed for destiny or bust!

Throw fear aside and prepare to enter into who you really are!  You have come to the crevice of exhausting all possibilities.  Take that leap of faith!

There are no more options for expansion you have gone as far as you can go on this level, and what worked before will not work where you are going.  You are no longer that same person!

Let go and enter into who you really are!  You cannot be happy being someone you’re not.

Life is full of challenges and each of us choose how we live it.  We must choose how to find our niche in life. no matter how many mistakes or how old we are.  Your age has nothing to do with it. It takes simple obedience.

We have God given gifts to pursue in our lives as we pursue HIM.  New things require a new beginning.

Some giftings are ministry related and some are secular, however the gifts and callings of God are without repentance; The LORD does not take them away.

As we learn God’s principles to pursue and plan, we find out with excitement, that our whole life can be reinvented!

God is all about reinventing our lives!  For example, the emergence of the butterfly from a shrouded tomb, speaks of the marvels of His way to reinvent purpose into His greatest of creation; MAN! Oh how He loves us beloved!

We are His greatest prize!  Oh beloved!  Let Him love on you today!

Greater Awareness We Carry

In all our learning, we must find a great correlation that balances our lives.

In all our learning, we must find a great correlation that balances our lives.

As I get older, I may sound redundant at times, but I assure you, I need to hear things over, over, and over.  Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.

The LORD has had me at times focus on just this one truth and it was, WE must be aware of our surroundings and learn to study to be quiet, listen, deeply focus and discern our own words before we ever release them to others!

We must have mastered us and then prayerfully listen to what comes out of our own mouth for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.

Look at the manifestations and how we react.  It is not just the outward actions but what is the inward.

There are not only the natural personality manifestations but there are those that come from a deeper level of the heart; that are deep seated and rooted.

Often deliverance happens in layers upon layers like an onion has layers.  God knows we must gradually peel back the pain and adapt to our changing lives.

By faith we walk out God’s word. It is a process of His presence at work in us for he watches over his word to perform it.  May we keep ourselves interdependent on The LORD.

May we keep a watch before our mouth and a guard before our lips.  We don’t always know the ramifications of influence we carry nor understand totally the living results of our choices we make and have in our lives.

We walk by faith and not by sight.  Death and life are in the “POWER” of the tongue.

Our words and our tongue will speak or write a continuous image as we reflect ourselves to others. We must learn to communicate according to what

The LORD sees. We are to base all communication against the Holy Bible.  We must learn and remember how he sees us and cares for us by basing our every thought, word and action by aligning ourselves to the Word of God!

The path of the righteous
shining brighter and brighter
There is no place he would not go
For He is there at all times
He wants us to really know

He wants us to realize the victory true
Of our immeasurable faith
And the valuable cost of you

In the face of our relationship
It is never divided for a moment
He has never turned away you or me
For He is everywhere we be
We must see, hear and be who
Christ is our victory!

Out of the abundance of
Our heart our mouth speaks
Help us oh Lord to rise above
the clamor of negativity
So our words will be swords
To all our enemy…..Selah

“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh,”   Luke 6:45 KJV.
