Warning! Read it For Yourself

"And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling. And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God." 1 Corinthians 2:1-5


I speak the truth as a disciple of Jesus.

Not every Word from the Lord is given for encouragement, but also for reprove and instruction that we who are following may hear from Heaven with clear direction. If you are starting this faith journey in Christ there is a lot to learn, and better still, if you are walking with Christ for years there is more to learn.

God Remains Faithful

When God speaks to us in the secret place in our heart we accept it as truth. Or do we? While faith to believe can be unshakable and certain, at other times outside influence can make muddy the promise spoken in or over us. Yet, we must realize that "a double-minded person is unstable in all they do" nor is "the Holy Spirit the author of confusion, but of peace." And the exclamation point, "we walk by faith, not by sight." We shouldn’t let the present facts contaminate our faith with doubt. When we believe, we stand on His promises, which are "Yes and Amen!" "For He is not a man that He should lie."

In July, I heard the Lord speak to my heart concerning Trump as president but wasn’t willing to put it out for public knowledge. I kept it quiet even in my inner circles because of the divisiveness over the support of one candidate over another. This election was putting family – The Body of Christ – at odds with each other. And I didn’t like it. At all. I found that saying something, anything, could sour a good friendship. So, I made up my mind to be limited in that topic of conversation online and in person. I went about life as usual but inquired more with the Lord about what I heard in the secret sacred place as Nov 8 approached.

Two weeks ago, I prayed fervently as the Spirit gave me utterance concerning the mantel of the U.S. presidency. I thank God for His Holy Spirit that prays with me and for me. But, still, I wanted more confirmation. The Holy Bible says, "in all your getting (of wisdom) get understanding." I’m curious like a toddler and ask God a lot of questions. I ask until I’m satisfied. When my spirit man is full.

We Overcome {Prayer}

The Holy Spirit prays with us and for us according to God's will. And when we prayer the will of God, He hears us. And if He hears us, we have what we have asked of Him.

A prayer for those who are in the valley of the shadow of death and facing darkness this season.



Father,
We thank you for your word that says, "we overcome by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony." Even now Lord, you are adding to _____ testimony in Christ Jesus. He will never leave him/her nor forsake him/her. He/She is not an orphan or abandoned. But loved and kept because of Jesus. He/She is His and marked for eternity! No devil in hell can claim what is yours Father. For you are the "Father to the fatherless." Thank you for your word Lord! I know you keep watch over your word so that it may not falter or fail. You are a mighty God, and we thank you for the purpose and plan you have intended even in this season. We thank you for increase of faith, hope and courage to stand in the face of darkness. For you shall be near to all who call on the name that is above every name....JESUS the CHRIST of NAZARETH!

As a minister of the Gospel, sharing the goodness of God and His promises, which are, "Yes and Amen!"

"Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God." Romans 8:26-27

"Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us." 1 John 5:14


"And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death." Revelation 12:11

"A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, Is God in His holy habitation." Psalm 68:5

Jeremiah’s Letter to the Captives: "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:11-13

"For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us." 2 Corinthians 1:20

JESUS Is One in A Million

Written October 9, 2012

The Spirit of the Lord wells up in my spirit throughout the day with scripture, but also in song.

This morning I sang at my kitchen sink, “One In A Million.” A song I haven’t heard of in years and with no influence other than the Holy Spirit, I begin to sing from my mouth what I hear deep inside. This is one of the many ways He ministers to me.



Yes, our spirit man sings to the Lord with scripture, praise and hymns, but every now and again with a secular song.

We all have an inherent need to be loved. Though we search high and low through acceptance, family, spouses, children, careers and even ministry, we find that only One is able to fill that role with satisfaction until overflowing. I’m talking of Jesus the Christ, who in His glorious love and light gives us all that we hunger and thirst for at overwhelming quantities.



I have found a one in a million love that shall never cease or die for it flows from the Living Water. Finally, my thirst for true love quenched. For the Son of God came shining through my being and what a revelation to receive, God was saying, “I love you!” to me.

Beloved, Jesus is a one in a million, “a chance of a lifetime.” His love is pure and for you personally. He is waiting with arms outstretched for the lost, the prodigal and the weak to open their hearts to repent and surrender to Him. And in return, He will show you compassion with a love that is everlasting, hopeful, and never disappoints.

For child art prodigy Akiane, Jesus is for real
“Jesus remains my highest authority, love, and God,” she adds. “I pray every day that people will one day follow Jesus, His teachings and feel His love.”
