God Speaks


There is a good amount of questioning about who can hear from God and how often. And I don’t have an answer for every question that flows from that topic, but what I do know is that when God speaks I am attentive to the still small voice in my spirit man that sounds very different than my own voice. He’s gentle but straightforward. Moreover, as my relationship deepens with the Lord, I hear Him more often with answers. Now it comes to mind as I write that in my own personal circumstances I don’t hear Him in my spirit as much as the Word of God seems to be readily available as if it’s waiting in queue for pickup. It’s in an instant and without prompting. However, in this season with a division in the Church over Bible Truth, brother against brother over differences of opinions, and our culture changing rapidly with a voice that’s neither unified or respectful I am asking God the hard questions and He’s answering swiftly.

I wrote God Remains Faithful in November after the general election voting Donald J. Trump and how I held back, but never shared the context of what God had spoken on July 29, 2016. It’s time.

Get Up Again

For the Saints of God who are the Soldiers of Christ. A timeless Word regardless of the calendar year.

Most of us have fallen at least once or more. I'm not sure how it looked at the end of 2016 for you, but even so, I have good news. For we have comfort in the Word of God -- the Holy Scriptures -- and by the Spirit of a Holy God through the prophetic gifts.

For a righteous man may fall seven times And rise again.
Proverbs 24:16a

Be encouraged my brother and sister, "Get up, again."

May this Word not only bless every hearer but bring to pass that which God has spoken over each of them.

Pray for Salvation

Let the priests, who minister to the Lord, Weep between the porch and the altar; Let them say, “Spare Your people, O Lord, And do not give Your heritage to reproach, That the nations should rule over them. Why should they say among the peoples, ‘Where is their God?’” Joel 2:17 

I was sending a reply text with an intercessory prayer early this morning, and when I was through immediately I fell to my knees, weeping for the individual and their household for salvation. It was on my lips and burning in my heart. Throughout the day I entered in and out of the spirit, and by the end, God had wrecked me. Literally. I was undone.

Recently, I asked God to increase the ministry and gifts in me, and well, He's delivering with each experience. Truthfully, I'm overwhelmed and not in a shout for joy kind of way. It's deep and weighty, but I know His grace is sufficient to carry out whatever the task, prayer or message.

Why are some delivered while others suffer?

Like in the Church of Corinth Paul answers church questions in the book of 1 Corinthians 7-16, I myself am asking God hard questions and He’s answering. A key component in this divine transaction is that I don’t keep the answers to myself. In the quiet of my heart, I heard the Spirit of the Lord.

If I answer, you must share it. It’s your responsibility. And if you don’t, I’ll get someone else to do it.

God will use us when we’re available and willing, but if we hold back He will certainly move on and give the assignment to another to carry out His message to the Church and the world at large.

What you find here on this blog in written form or in audio is the character of God. It may not be what you've heard before, and because of this, you may question is it really the Lord speaking through a true prophetess. I am told that this gift is not merely a gift, but the Office of a Prophet, and with that comes great responsibility to pray, stand in the gap, to war against darkness, and speak as I am spoken to regardless of the topic or answer. I don’t get to edit, tweak or water down the words. I am a servant -- a messenger. That is all. And I will walk confidently in the truth—His truth.

Birthday Celebration {6 Years}

I am thankful to God for giving my "Yes, Lord," armslegs, and a voice. On 1.11.2011 I began a journey here that was focused predominantly on sharing my faith and God took what was in my heart and increased it. My journey though only a short while, the desire and promise to feed His sheep remains. Yesterday, after praying and blessing a Woman of God with a kiss from Heaven that left us both full and loved, I pressed in the more on my drive home.

Lord, fill my hands with loaves and fishes that I may feed the multitude by the power of the Holy Spirit. 
This is exactly the heart of God for His children -- to feed the hungry filling them with a hope that does not disappoint and promises that are assured in the work of the Cross.

Let's get our head straight and hearts fixed on Kingdom work—time is short and the laborers few.

Father God, I thank you for every reader, that they may feed the spiritually hungry. Give them FAITH to believe in miracles, HOPE that does not disappoint, and COURAGE to fear not in dark places. Let your Kingdom come Lord Jesus! Amen!

My Struggles #1

Darkness crept in one ordinary day in November 2009.

Did I make it?

But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26

I am here to testify that Jesus reached down in my pit and rescued me when I was willing to be broken and depend solely on Him.  I have learned, loved, forgiven, and grown. As of November 2012 I answered the call of Christ as an ordained minister, and today I am reaching the hopeless and discouraged during my ordinary day as a mom. God is faithful to bring about His scheduled opportunities to be His voice, and I am humbled to be in His service, while giving the devil a black eye.

In the years 2011 and 2012 I wrote over fifty posts on a read by invitation only blog where I shared intimate details of my breakthrough and the courage it took to change. It was written as a seedling of what was to come. To God be the glory it is happening! The following works are my own and may or may not be included in part or whole in my autobiographical testimony. My prayer is that my willingness to be vulnerable will help others on their journey to victory, this side of heaven. Follow along as I post snippets here under one label (see below) leading up to the publication of my book.

To God be the Glory for the things He has done!

Sin Separates Us From GOD

Believers Are Salt and Light
“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:13-16

What do I do when GOD SPEAKS and I put it to the side because it’s too controversial? Keep on moving until I find out many months later that the same topic is blowing up on social media. And well, do I dare jump in now with what I was given. They’ll spit venom of hate and say all kinds of manner of evil against me. Even with all that to think of, my pastor approves this message. She confirms what I already know, it’s from the Lord. No question about it. I tried to find a way out. Discredit a portion so that perhaps I could trash the whole thing, but I’d be like the prophets of old running away. I have no business as a prophetess only then to speak when God gives it to me straight up and unadulterated. I can’t add or take away from the message. It’s got to be delivered the same without changing a thing.

“Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you." Matthew 5:11-12
