Wait on The Promise


With Abraham faith, I too have gazed at the stars with a promise and waited. Can you?

For with God nothing [is or ever] shall be impossible.
Luke 1:37 AMP

Like a spouse who comes up from behind you with a surprising kiss while you’re watching the Food Network and munching on Veggie Straws, the Holy Spirit did just that with a message. It was an unexpected visit.

The Rivers of Living Water are continually flowing and at any moment the Lord can speak through me. My mind wandered to a particular person and situation, and I thought, "It’s not a quick fix."

In the Kingdom of God, we can’t put in our request and expect things to turn around in a weekend. There’s no special curing process in the Spirit with an expected time for results. There’s no secret 7-step method for what we’re looking for. Although we can be a Change Agent -- implementing godly character with healthy boundaries -- to help ease the frustration for both ourselves and others. There are countless variables with every circumstance, but the keys to unlock our situation lie in the search with all our heart to be found in the Word and by the revelation of the Holy Spirit. You can even gain #FaithHopeCourage on your journey with the help of several resources and people. But enough about that. I want to share the heart of God with you now to give you a boost and point the way, especially for those who are waiting and weary.

The Scripture, “with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day,” (2 Peter 3:8) was recalled from the sacred part of my soul and rang true in my spirit for this craving of a quick fix. We can’t rush the process. As I wept in the Truth then, I weep again writing.

Wait on the promise.  
Read it for yourself!

We must dig deep in our cistern of faith to pull from it ample amounts of #FaithHopeCouarge, and believe with all our hearts in what God has spoken to us and over us that we may see the “goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.” (Psalm 27:13) Hold on my Brothers and Sisters, and wait on the promise!



I have a few significant testimonies of God’s goodness in my own life and I have also witnessed it in the lives of others. Yet, my heart knows there is more, much more. Be diligent and study the Word. Be obedient and drink from the Cup of the Lord daily. You’ll find that as you practice these things they will become good habits that are life, even unto your bones. You’ll look forward to pleasing God meanwhile cultivating in the Spirit and gaining ground with the promise ever closer, though maybe on Heaven’s timetable and not your own.


For the vision is yet for the appointed [future] time 
It hurries toward the goal [of fulfillment]; it will not fail. 
Even though it delays, wait [patiently] for it, 
Because it will certainly come; it will not delay. 
Habakkuk 2:3 AMP

The Devil is a Liar: MLM Recruiting


If you abide in My word [continually obeying My teachings and living in accordance with them, then] you are truly My disciples. John 8:31 AMP

What does it mean that “the truth will set you free” (John 8:32) True disciples will know the truth. More than that, their eyes are opened to a greater understanding of the truth.
The devil replicates the Divine with his signature twist of perversion. Not perversion sexually regarding this topic, but yes, he has done that as well.

I want to speak to you about how the devil has given the world a divine model in scripture and perverted it with the intent to be millionaires. Many have been involved either in both purchasing or as a distributor/sponsor in Multi Level Marketing or know someone who has or perhaps still is.

Recently, I watched a documentary Betting on Zero*. An in-depth investigation of Herbalife with "controversial hedge fund titan," billion dollar investor Bill Ackman exposing the company's fraudulent practices for a gain of money, which turns out is not as bad it sounds.
Amazon Reviewer: This might be the best Wall Street movie ever made, but it's more than that. It's a movie about the American Dream, what people will do for "30 pieces of silver," and what the right measuring stick for success really is.
Interesting, minutes into the explaining of a pyramid scheme the Holy Spirit revealed a Truth. This is a perversion of the Divine -- disciples making disciples -- a duplication -- all the while God the Father (The Ultimate Upline) getting all the glory.
The Divine Rise of Multilevel Marketing (November 23, 2015) Christianity Today Magazine - Similarly, personal-finance expert Dave Ramsey tells his listeners that, while many MLM companies are legitimate businesses, they take a lot of work. At root, Ramsey in a video recording for his radio show, MLM success is about recruiting and retaining a sales team, not selling products. “You need to understand the business you’re in,” he said. “And the business you’re in is recruiting.”
