LET MY LOVE STREAM THROUGH YOU,  washing away fear and distrust.  A trusting response includes Me in your thoughts as you consider strategies to deal with a situation.  My continual Presence is a promise, guaranteeing that you never have to face anything alone.  My children teethe on the truth that I am always with them, yet they stumble around in a stupor, unaware of My loving Presence all around them. How that grieves Me!
When you walk through a day in trusting dependence on Me, My aching heart is soothed.  Gently bring your attention back to me, whenever it wanders away.  I look for persistence-rather than perfection-in your walk with Me.
Psalm 32:8-9
8 But as for me, I am like a green olive tree in the house of God;
I trust in the loving kindness of God forever and ever.
9 I will give You thanks forever, because You have done it,
And I will wait on Your name, for it is good, in the presence of Your godly ones
Deuteronomy 31:6  Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the Lord your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.”
Ephesians 4:30  30 Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.

I Want You To Know

20130519-133703.jpg
I WANT YOU TO KNOW how safe and secure you are in My Presence. That is a fact, totally independent of your feelings You are on your way to heaven: nothing can prevent you from reaching that destination. There you will see Me face to Face, and your Joy will be off the charts by any earthly standards. Even now, you are never separated from Me, though you must see Me through eyes of faith. I will walk with you till the end of time, and onward into eternity.

Although My Presence is a guaranteed promise, that does not necessarily change your feelings. When you forget I am with you , you may experience loneliness or fear. It is through awareness of My Presence that Peace displaces negative feelings. Practice the discipline of walking consciously with Me through each day.

1 Corinthians 13:12 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to Face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known

Psalm 29:11 11 The Lord will give strength to His people;
The Lord will bless His people with peace.

Opening To Abundance Prayer

OPENING TO ABUNDANCE

Beloved God, Creator of the Universe, Divine Indwelling Spirit,

I open my heart and my mind this day to remember that I am a living breathing expression of all that You are.

I open my heart and my mind this day to connect to this truth and to allow all to be expressed through me.

Creator God, I allow the abundance of this vast universe to come easily and effortlessly to me.

I open myself to be the vessel through which all blessings flow. I remember that abundance is the energy that flows through every aspect of my life.

Blessed Mother, Father God I know it is your pleasure for me to have abundant life.

God, my only source, I am so grateful for all that is in my life and for all that I know is yet to come.

Thank You for the reminder that I am worthy of all that I truly desire.

Thank you for allowing me to be the vessel of your abundance.

I Am Your Lord

20130517-225950.jpg

I AM YOUR LORD! Seek Me as Friend and Lover of your soul, but remember that I am also King of kings–sovereign over all. You can make some plans as you gaze into the day that stretches out before you. But you need to hold those plans tentatively, anticipating that I may have other ideas. The most important thing to determine is what to do right now. Instead of scanning the horizon of your life, looking for things that need to be done, concentrate on the task before you and the One who never leaves your side. Let everything else fade into the background. This will unclutter your mind, allowing Me to occupy more and more of your consciousness.

Trust Me to show you what to do when you have finished what you are doing now. I will guide you step by step, as you bend your will to Mine. Thus you stay close to Me on the path of Peace.

Proverbs 19:21 Many plans are in a man’s heart,
But the counsel of the Lord will stand.

Luke 1:79 To shine upon those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death,
To guide our feet into the way of peace.”

Hearing God’s Voice

20130516-035314.jpg

Hearing God’s Voice

Faith comes from hearing God’s words through His Holy Spirit. Faith is accomplished by actions of obedience with patience and perseverance.

Every true Christian has heard God’s voice. It was God’s voice that called you to Him; it was His Holy Spirit that drew you with chords of love to receive His salvation message, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. You heard God’s voice say in your heart “I have chosen you, and ordained you, come unto Me”. Jesus says, “No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him” (John 6:44). So then your Christian walk began with faith, and you received that faith from God through His Holy Spirit communicating with you.

Faith is a gift from God; it is a part of God’s grace that is at work in your life. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God (Eph 2:8). True faith, true hope, and true love, all come from God and not from your self they are gifts from God. The Bible says, “God has given a measure of faith” to each Christian, (Rom 12:3). Jesus is the author and perfecter of our faith, (Heb 12:2).

God imparts faith to people through the hearing of His words. So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word rhema of God, (Rom 10:17). In the New Testament when the word of God is mentioned there are two main words for the word, word; they are rhema and logos. They both have a similar definition that is “spoken words”. But in studying the Bible I noticed an important difference, rhema has to do with hearing the voice and sensing the spirit by which the words are spoken. Logos are recorded words, which have been spoken.

Jesus the Christ is also called The Logos, the Word of God. In the beginning was the Word logos, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1) The Words that the Father spoke through Jesus created the universe and all life. By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, And all the host of them by the breath of His mouth. (Psa 33:6) The Bible is logos, the recorded words of God. 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 complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Tim 3:16-17)

I love the Holy Bible and I accept without doubt that it contains the infallible words of God from Genesis to Revelation. But faith does not come from the Bible; faith comes from God through the Holy Spirit. Rhema is the word of God that is associated with faith; faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word (rhema) of God. So unless a person hears God’s voice and senses His Spirit when receiving the words from God, there is no rhema, there is no faith, there is no life, and there will be no good fruit produced. In fact when people quote scriptures with out being led by the Holy Spirit they produce death not life. Remember even Satan can quote scriptures, Mat. 4:6. People in the New Age movement quote scriptures, Muslims accept some scriptures, and many cults will use some scriptures from the Bible, but there is no true faith produced when they quote the Bible.

Because of the blood that Jesus Christ shed on the cross He made available to us a new covenant between God and man, a new relationship. Everything about the new covenant has to do with the Spirit, not the law. He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant–not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. Now if the ministry that brought death, which was engraved in letters on stone, came with glory, so that the Israelites could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of its glory, fading though it was, will not the ministry of the Spirit be even more glorious? If the ministry that condemns men is glorious, how much more glorious is the ministry that brings righteousness! (2 Cor 3:6-9)

Because of the blood that Jesus shed on the cross God is able to give us His spirit in us, and not just with us. “And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever “the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. (John 14:16-17)

So now we have a new nature in us that is God’s laws written on our hearts, God’s Holy Spirit in us. “For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. “None of them shall teach his neighbor, and none his brother, saying, ‘Know the LORD,’ for all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them. (Heb 8:10-11) We know God and have intimate fellowship with Him through the Holy Spirit. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. (Romans 8:14)

The Pharisees and Sadducees used the scriptures to bring death, as do some religious leaders today, but when Jesus quoted scriptures it brought life. Jesus says “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.” (John 6:63) Too many pastors and Bible teachers are bringing death to people instead of life by speaking un-anointed words, that is words that the Holy Spirit has not led them to speak.

Too many people are teaching the written word without teaching the Spirit, which is how to hear God’s voice in you, the Holy Spirit. “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. “But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. (Mat 12:35-36) Idle words are dead words that do not carry the anointing of the Holy Spirit, which means that they do not carry God’s voice and His spirit to penetrate the heart of the hearer bringing life and faith.

Pastor, if the Lord has not given you a word to speak then stand behind the pulpit and keep silent, waiting on God until He does. One anointed word from God spoken through your mouth can bring a revival in your church that will touch the world. But great swelling words of emptiness produce death; don’t be a cloud without water that passes over the desert; see 2nd Peter chapter 2.

Too many Christians do not know how to witness to others because they are trying to follow a formula taught by man instead of being led by God’s Holy Spirit in them. Even in your Bible reading you need to be led by the Holy Spirit otherwise it can be dry and boring, but when the Holy Spirit leads you to a passage it brings life and joy because you hear the voice of God and sense His Spirit while you are reading it. You then know that those words were written for you even though they were written thousands of years before. In praying you need to also be led by the Holy Sprit so that you can speak God’s words from your mouth and bring God’s will upon earth.

Everything about our relationship with God has to do with the Holy Spirit. He is our bond and unity with God, and He is our source of communion and communication with God. Jesus says, “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.” (John 16:13) It is the Holy Spirit that guides us into all truth, the Bible contains truth but only when the Holy Spirit guides us do we know how to apply Bible truth. The Holy Spirit tells us how to do God’s will, God’s way, and in God’s timing.

There are seven influences that the Holy Spirit has upon the believer found in Isaiah chapter 11. The first is that He is to rest and remain with you forever, He will be with you your whole life, He will be with you through death, and He will be with you in the next life also, forever. The Holy Spirit is the One who is called along side of us; He is our Helper, our Comforter, and our Counselor. There are times when the Holy Spirit’s communication with us is beyond words that we can understand, but we will sense the divine message anyway.

The Holy Spirit will communicate to you wisdom, understanding (discernment), counsel, power (faith), knowledge, and the fear of the LORD. He will cause you to delight in the fear of the LORD walking in obedience and righteousness because the joy of a clean heart will be yours. The Holy Spirit is such a great treasure in the true Christian, what a privilege that God has given us who are of the new covenant. But how often have we neglected, ignored, and allowed ourselves to become distracted from His influence in our lives.

Jesus says, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God”, (Mat 4:4). The Bible does not contain all the words of God, but we are to live by all the words of God, that can only happen by living a life led by the Holy Spirit. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. (Rom 8:14) God’s children that have His Spirit also hear His voice. Jesus says, “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.” (John 10:27) The people that hear God’s voice are the people that He knows.

There are many people who call themselves Christians and they may even do great things in Jesus name but they are not being led by God’s Holy Spirit. Jesus says, “Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name? And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!” (Mat 7:22-23). These people made two fatal mistakes; first they took credit for, and trusted that the works would get them into heaven instead of God’s grace given through the blood that Jesus shed on the cross. The second fatal mistake was not being led by God’s Holy Spirit, which is practicing lawlessness and disobedience.

The just shall live by faith, faith is hearing and obeying, so the righteous people live by hearing and obeying God’s words given to them through the Holy Spirit. Whatever is not of faith is sin. The Christian’s spiritual journey begins with faith and continues with faith. Your faith increases as you become more sensitive to the Holy Spirit, hearing God’s words spoken in your heart, and then through obedience and perseverance see the great results of walking in faith. When you are sensitive and obedient to God’s words there will be evidence of your faith. For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. (James 2:26)

When you receive a word from God there are four possible reactions that you can have to the Word of Truth that God speaks to you through the Holy Spirit.

1. A hard heart does not receive the word and then the devil can easily steal it.

2. A shallow heart receives the word with joy and it begins to grow, but when persecution comes it withers because it does not have deep roots in a persons heart.

3. A heart that has other priorities receives the word but it is chocked out by the cares and distractions of this world.

4. A good and humble heart receives the word, and holds on to it, and thereby produces much spiritual fruit through perseverance and obedience to God.

(Luke 8:11-15 NIV) “This is the meaning of the parable: The seed is the word of God. {12} Those along the path are the ones who hear, and then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, so that they may not believe and be saved. {13} Those on the rock are the ones who receive the word with joy when they hear it, but they have no root. They believe for a while, but in the time of testing they fall away. {14} The seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by life’s worries, riches and pleasures, and they do not mature. {15} But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop.

When you first receive a word from God you feel the joy of receiving God’s word in your heart because you are hearing His voice and you sense His Spirit while you receiving the word. That is a rhema word from God. Your words were found, and I ate them, And Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart; For I am called by Your name, O LORD God of hosts. (Jeremiah 15:16) But after receiving a word from God it is no longer rhema, it becomes logos, a received word from God.

You may not continue to feel the joy and sense God’s Spirit from the word that has been received; this is why perseverance is required to produce fruit from a word received from God. You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; (Isaiah 55:12) Even if you do not have the joy you can hold on to the word received and be led by God’s peace. At discouraging times when you turn your attention back to God the Holy Spirit will remind you of the promise and you will be able to hang on to it, and sense God’s peace and comfort.

It is possible to receive a word from God and then not go on to see it fulfilled in the physical realm. Many people get discouraged when circumstances make it look like it is impossible, some will let go of the word and go no further. There will be a time of testing after you receive a word from God, you may even question if you really heard from God, thinking that it could have just been your emotions or imagination. But if you hold on to the promise and persevere you will see it fulfilled and it will produce fruit that glorifies God. For we walk by faith, not by sight. (2 Corinthians 5:7)

Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. {36} For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise: {37} “For yet a little while, And He who is coming will come and will not tarry. {38} Now the just shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him.”
(Hebrews 10:35-38)

What Is Sin

20130510-012032.jpg

“What is sin?
It is the glory of God not honored.
The holiness of God not reverenced.
The greatness of God not admired.
The power of God not praised.
The truth of God not sought.
The wisdom of God not esteemed.
The beauty of God not treasured.
The goodness of God not savored.
The faithfulness of God not trusted.
The commandments of God not obeyed.
The justice of God not respected.
The wrath of God not feared.
The grace of God not cherished.
The presence of God not prized.
The person of God not loved.
That is sin.”
We all have fallen short of the Kingdom of God, we must remember we was created to bring Glory to God! We must hate the very thought of hurting our Heavenly Father, we must choose to love God more than sin, and the ways of the world. For we are born and again when we confess Jesus as Lord Romans 10:9 we are no longer slaves to sin, but we are now washed in the Precious blood of Jesus Christ!! Therefore we must turn from our wick ways and we must walk after the spirit and away from the world! What is sin, anything that takes the place of God in your life!!

When Basic Needs are Lacking

20130430-081003.jpg

WHEN SOME BASIC NEED IS LACKING– time, energy, money–consider yourself blessed. Your very lack is an opportunity to latch onto Me in unashamed dependence. When you begin a day with inadequate resources, you must concentrate your efforts on the present moment . This is where you were meant to live–in the present; it is the place where I always await you. Awareness of your inadequacy is a rich blessing, training you to rely whole-hardheartedly on Me.

The truth is that self-sufficiency is a myth perpetuated by pride and temporary success. Health and wealth can disappear instantly, as can life itself. Rejoice in your insufficiency, knowing that My power is made perfect in weakness.

James 1:2 Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trial

2 Corinthians 12:9 9 And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me

Bondage Is Slavery

20130429-081340.jpg
We all in some kind of way have experienced being in bondage to something, when we come to know God’s love for us, then we will realize there is nothing that we have to be in bondage to. For bondage is being a slave to what ever you deem to be to hard to let go, or say no to. I can think of several things that may have been hard for many to walk away from or to say no to, when your carnal minded its so easy to be lured away from the love of Spiritual things. The lust of the flesh is enemy to the very thought of Spiritual thoughts and action. The flesh holds no good things, to be carnal minded is to be spiritually dead! My brother’s and sister’s when we except Christ as Lord of our lives, we are now in covenant with Jesus and that means we are now been given the same spiritual keys to fight off everything that at one time held us in bondage!! Stop taking what the enemy dishes out, use your spiritual authority, speak the Word.. All spiritual gifts have been given to us, Abba Father has given us all rights to Him and He left the Holy Spirit and His job is to lead and guide us into all TRUTH. The father of lies has been defeated in our lives, when you don’t use your weapons, you will find your self reverting back to your ways that caused you to seek out a Savior. Just remember that:
Being confined to bondage is a reality from which some may never allow themselves to break free. Just hearing that you are free is only part of the equation. Walking out the truth of your freedom is the authentic and actual application of that knowledge. You’ve been made free by Me. Allow the bands of the self-imposed yoke under which you’ve placed yourself to be unshackled. Let go. Allow Me to usher you from the dark and dreary dungeon where you’ve unduly placed yourself. I am the bondage breaker and I’ve set you free.

John 8:36 (NLT) “So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free.”

Envy

20130424-000032.jpg
Envy

“For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.”
Genesis 26:14

“A sound heart is the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones.”
Proverbs 14:30

“Wrath is cruel, and anger is outrageous; but who is able to stand before envy?”
Proverbs 27:4

“Again, I considered all travail, and every right work, that for this a man is envied of his neighbour. This is also vanity and vexation of spirit.”
Ecclesiastes 4:4

“Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,”
Romans 1:29

“For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?”
1 Corinthians 3:3

“Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings,”
1 Peter 2:1

My First Love

20130422-160053.jpg

Sampson was set aside from birth for God , he laid his head down in the wrong lap. Some of us have left our first love.
Some of us have just become room mates with God. Love will compel us and constrain us. Strange love is pulling us away from God. When your commit is right it will keep you obediant
Apostles dream to tell my people to come out of shittums come out of whoredoms, life comes with so many distractions but it is so important that we as children of God don’t in tangle our selves with things and people that will pull us away from God.

We are seeing the signs of the times right before our faces, the love for God and what is right has gotten to be a thing of the past. We can’t tell what is God and what is not, this is why we must not waste precious time that should be spent in our word and in prayer and laying aside time to fast and pray so that we do not fall into the traps that enemy has set for us to do so. God is watching and there is nothing hide to Him, so you maybe able to pretend to be one who follows after God, but the bible says that you know the tree by the fruits that it bares, so it’s a dangerous thing to fall into the hands of a angry God. We do serve a loving and forgiving God and it’s more beneficial to walk after the works of the spirit not the flesh, for their is no good thing in the flesh it will cause you to lust after things that will cause you and God to be separated.
Romans 12:1.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Num 25:1-3
1 And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab.
2 And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods: and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods.
3 And Israel joined himself unto Baal–peor: and the anger of the Lord was kindled against Israel.

5 And the Lord said unto Moses, Take all the heads of the people, and hang them up before the Lord against the sun, that the fierce anger of the Lord may be turned away from Israel.

Those of us who hear the instruction of the Lord we have willfully submitted to not obeying God, we have become whores to the God of this world

We are far away from God because our lives are not in line with Gods word. When you truly want God we will turn away from sin, we are nasty and dirty in Gods sight, God is coming to strip us because of out unclean ways.

God wants to know are we willing to turn away from our sinful ways.
