Stay the Course

>> Tuesday, January 31, 2012

How many of us would like others to pray this for us?:

No matter what goes on around me that I stay focused to my call...that my eyes are fixed to the finish line and I will not give up, nor sway, nor turn my head or my mind to the distractions the enemy is influencing against me.

De 31:6 Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he [it is] that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

I have envisioned that He has given me an assignment and there are many who would not like me to finish it. When I start to feel like I need to give up, retreat, or run away... He reminds I didnt tell you to walk away...I told you to WALK ON!!! Walk forward...this is a new fresh boldness and courage I have never experience before.

How many times in the past, I have ran and hid behind the bed...I have allowed myself to be distracted and follow after several false leads getting off track....I have taken detours hoping they didnt look as bad as what was right in front of me...Anyone else run from God? Anyone else see the delay in doing so?

So the battle is you battles bring new processing trying to figure it all out...I have decided there is no processing any longer... just obedience...yet another first....just trust and obey even when the walls are coming in around you...He will see me through what He has called me to do! There are levels of trust and obey...its not like when you have just passed the test, but have mastered it, God moves you on to the next level...can I get a witness?!

I have so many unclean thoughts attacking me out of nowhere...How many of us have that going on? We must fight against them, tear down, and do this without sinning...I must do this in LOVE...yet another first of realizing even my thoughts need to be love...its training for the real deal.

I have been down the mountain and back up the mountain more than I can count...I have been called to STAND at the top of the mountain, only to turn away of insecurity or fear of the unknown...I have missed my opportunity! I may not be proud of that...but I can say this...none of it was in vain...God has used EVERY hardship of sin to train and teach me...I have the best Teacher! It always starts out that I hate the drills that He puts me through...then by the end when I get what I was suppose to learn...crazy but true...I learn to embrace it with gratefulness. I am fully persuaded that ALL things are working together for my good because I love God and He loves me...I am fully persuaded that if God is for me...who can be against me?

I have altered my own path and destiny because of the distractions and the attacks...I have not only delayed my own blessings but whoever the Lord connected to that act of obedience. I believe I am starting to see the spiritual warfare for what it really is...I keep saying that....I guess God is taking back the veil little by little...all that to say...obedience brings blessings...His Word is a light unto my path...He promises if I commit my ways to Him He will direct my paths....He will go before me...He holds my hand...He does the work...and then confirms it...

All I need to do is walk it out trusting He is in control and I have decided to follow Him where ever He goes. Encouragement...Even when those around us have different plans for us...even when others think they can control you or play god for you in your life...Choose you this day who will you serve...them or God?

I have one God...I serve one God...I am a bond slave to one God...not many little gods (people)...but to the God of the Universe...the Jesus of friend the Holy Spirit. There is great comfort in that. My obedience may make others feel uncomfortable as they tear at love I know it has nothing to do with the spiritual warfare goes on...God help us all!

We must be encouragement to each other to stay the course no matter what! In the end we stand before GOD not others...we give an account to GOD...In the end...we stand alone.

The KEY is to be fully persuaded to know God and 1Co 7:20 Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called. 2Pe 1:10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

I REST in this: For the LORD shall be MY confidence, and shall keep MY foot from being taken. (Proverbs 3:26) emphasis added MY

I TRUST that: The LORD shall guide ME continually, and satisfy MY soul in drought, and make fat MY bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. (Isaiah 58:11) emphasis added ME


Evil Conquerored! There is Victory in Jesus!

>> Friday, January 27, 2012

We left off yesterday with we were created to glorify God...
One may ask how can I do that. I have been sexually abused, I have used my body shamefully, I have had multiple partners and I am not even 15 yet, I have strong feelings for women and I dont understand why, I am involved in a homosexual lifestyle...

God hates me right?! WRONG! WRONG! WRONG! WRONG! WRONG!

Yesterday, we shared on how God's design for our sexuality is one of beauty and imagery of His relationship with us and the church...we also touched on you are not defined by what you did or what was done to you BUT WHO YOU BELONG TO!

This is GOOD NEWS...this is REDEEMING NEWS...this is written in the hopes that you understand you are not disposable, despicable, or disgusting... that you feel shame, guilt, and dirty these are things you "feel" they are not who you are!

Example: I have a 60+ woman who for the first time ever has shared she was molested by a neighborhood man when she was 8. It devastated her world...she is wounded and scared to this day...always feeling guilty and dirty...she carried this her whole life in bondage to a lie... a lie that kept her from living life to her fullest...from pursuing certain goals...she has been incapacitated because of the Father of LIES and without any help...without any intervention for 60 years her life was STOPPED and she looks back now after all these years...after coming to the FREEDOM IN TRUTH... and has so many regrets...she missed out on life...until now...her eyes have been opened her heart drawn to Jesus and she is Free at last because she has been REDEEMED by the Blood of Jesus!

I dont want this to be YOU...who ever YOU are! No matter what matter what physical sin that has come into your life...there is HOPE...there is HEALING...and there is LIFE in JESUS CHRIST...

So you ask, How? How can this be true? Your not alone, EVERY woman asks this who I talk to. Are you willing to not only read and listen but BELIEVE what I am about to share with you? It really is up to you...if the Holy Spirit is drawing can be like this 60 year old woman or you can STOP the destruction of your life NOW.

Remember from the beginning of time Good vs. Evil, God vs. satan. Satan's desire is to counterfeit everything that is good and destroy it, to destroy anything good created by God ESPECIALLY us who has been created in His image. He has one goal... to keep us from full filling our destiny in Jesus Christ. If he can keep us in FEAR and stop us from being FREE we will be worthless to bring honor, glory and power to others in Jesus' name. His scheme to use sexual brokenness is working!

The scriptures are clear... God has characteristics, he has a reputation...and when tried He is ALWAYS found faithful... 2Ti 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Make NO bones about this...if we are in fear we are in torment from the enemy. HE lies to us and holds us back...Remember yesterday? He is like a violent roaring lion seeking to tear you from limb to limb to destroy your physical state from glorifying God.

We are all sinners...born into a fallen world...but not without redemption! Nor a REDEEMER for that matter!!! Hallelujah!!! The scriptures are given to us to teach us God's love for His people. HE loved us so much He gave His son's life to bear all that shame, guilt, and pain that you carry. HE came to be your KNIGHT in shining deliver you from the gates of hell...from isolating yourself...from feeling like there is something wrong with you, from feeling like you are thrown away trash.

Jesus Christ walks the back allies looking for what you feel like....picking you up...taking you in...and treasuring you. You become His trophy set on His shelf to show you off! He cleanses you white as snow, He clothes you and gives you His cloak of honor and then whispers how much He loves and values you...He even likes you...even when we dont like ourselves!

Today...your guilt, shame and ugly feelings can all be washed away! They can be exchanged for power, love, and a once and for all sound mind! I must tell you there is a does come to us at a great price...the BLOOD OF JESUS was shed to cover our sins...but once covered...once bought with the price of the Son of God...we no longer are our own...we are now HIS...WE BELONG TO HIM...the King of Kings and Lord of Lords over ALL the Universe!

We must put on our crowns...just as we put on the Lord Jesus in our clean up. We become...daughters of the King...we are adopted into royalty...we become joint-heirs with Jesus. Yes...joint-heirs with Jesus can you believe it?! You better believe it...if you dont believe its not yours and you wont use your inheritance wisely! Yes you have an inheritance...a spiritual one...let me share with you what this looks like....

Once a immediately get a beautiful gift of the Holy Spirit that takes up residency inside of you. He is given to comfort you, teach you all things about Jesus and who you belong to, guide you, correct you and help you live your life like Christ. Then we have power...we are given power over the enemy who got us in our mess to begin the name of Jesus by the Blood shed on Calvary we can command him to get behind us...he may not pass...we now have authority over him. But remember sweet can have authority... but the power comes when we use it!

Knowing who we are in Christ changes everything we have ever known. There are some verses that you must remember strait up for your power to be exercised in you. You no longer have to live a defeated, paralyzed life! You can now forever STAND in Christ and use whatever misery has been apart of your past to glorify God in your future...after you have been set can now in turn set others free!!!! Women need women...we need each other...we must be the hands and feet of Jesus to one another in times of help stay focused on the finish line of life and not get sidetracked by the enemy's schemes to destroy us from the inside out.

Feeling alittle will people view you, feel about you, treat you....oooh come on have been living with that all too long now. Rise up and Stand! We must change your thought process...take every thought and tear it down into the obedience of Christ. Can I fill you in on a little are not alone...1 in every 4 woman have encountered possibly what you have...lets stop hiding...lets stop worrying about others...lets live life for US and JESUS!!!

These blogs are long...I am sorry...but I want to communicate the truth with are your scriptures for clarity....

Romans 10:8-11 KJV 8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

Jesus lives! You can live too! He can raise you from your fallen dead state of just existing and bring new life into you. For Born again Believers everywhere...for those who claim to follow Jesus ...your destiny...your purpose and plan... that has been predetermined by God from the foundations of the world are all hinged on one principle.....

Knowing and Believing who you are IN CHRIST and living that out with all authority and power, is the key! Having confidence in Him and Him alone. If not, there is no power, there is no freedom, there is no is in Believing and walking it out dear women of God. You can do this!

Who do you belong to? Jos 24:15 ¶ And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that [were] on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

Good vs. Evil... When We Wonder Why Me?

>> Thursday, January 26, 2012

From the beginning of creation there has been an all out war against God's holiness and satan's destructiveness. We have been affected by this war all through the ages. We have heard of horrific stories of such ciaos in the lives of people through the years.

For many of us, we may have been one of those who have a horrific story. I counsel with many women who have had unthinkable things done to them...they have been left confused, shamed, isolated, depleted, and feeling rejected by God and man...disposable.

I am led to share "my thoughts" on the way the world goes round. As we all have wondered Why? or Why Me? I keep coming back to this 1 thing. It is the 1 thing that only makes sense. It is the 1 thing that provides true answers with a sound foundation. Mind you, yes we live in a sin fallen world, bad things happen to good innocent people...innocent children...

May I introduce a concept that I believe will bring healing and hope to a hurting sect of women? May I speak directly to you.... keeping in mind...I understand we are all at different levels in our hurting and healing...this is not meant to minimize any one's experience at all...we need love...nuture...and healing is a process that should be walked out with a trusted confidant. However, so many still struggle with why and so, I would just like to make a suggestion that may make sense to someone. It has made sense to me :)

From the foundations of the world God has had a design. God has created all things with extreme details on the way life should take place when lived out according to His design. God has known you by name, He formed you in your mother's womb, He has born you with a plan and a purpose. God is good, holy, righteous, He loves us with an everlasting love, we were created in His image, for the sole purpose to glorify His name, to live out His image in our mortal bodies.

God has a game does satan His arch enemy...whose plan is to destroy everything good created in the name of Jesus Christ...The scriptures describe satan as a roaring lion seeking to devour you...thats a violent death...seeking the earth to pounce on and tear apart limb by limb...on that note we can take into account we are in an all out war with an evil spirit that wants us dead...physically...more so spiritually. Satan wants to destroy any and all opportunities for our spiritual man to come alive in Christ and mature. Satan knows what you will be in Christ...he works hard to keep you from achieving your destiny in Christ.

2Co 3:14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which [vail] is done away in Christ. 2Co 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Ok so we see what we are up against. We are a bulls eye from birth...and for small children...young young adults we will have experienced some horrific, harsh, attacks against our physical woman in order to destroy our spiritual woman. For some this may have happened once...for others multiple times....for some we have yet to possibly experience...all this to say....

God created sexuality in us for good...for pleasure and security in one person for life...a covenant in marriage one woman to one man for life to live out a relationship of intimacy that represents the closeness that God desires with His Church. When God leaves his fingerprints on what He designs...we are safe and secure in knowing this is good...just as He said after each creation...we say it is good when we are in Him.

Satan has tried to counterfeit and destroy sexuality to make it dirty and destructive. He will leave hurt, wounds, guilt, shame, the spirit of death hoovers...his fingerprints are dirty and ugly and leaves us feeling used and abused. So he uses what he believes will destroy us the quickest and cause us to turn our backs on God so we will never walk out our true purpose on earth for the kingdom of God.

Can we look at our sexual brokenness as a means to destroy us from the great plan we were meant to live out. The abuse leaves many a woman paralyzed and helpless...satans idea leaves many a woman hating God, turning away from the only Source of Help and Healing...again satans plan is working...It destroys the mind of what sexuality was created for and breaks down the plan for beautiful intimacy in God's design...again satans plan is succeeding.

Satan is cunning and influences and uses humans to do his dirty work...and many who fall victim to satans schemes become our attackers...they too are caught up in the evil vicious cycle of destruction...many being possessed by it is the only means to do such horrific things to another person.

Yes it is WRONG and Yes it deserves punishment...HOWEVER...we women must fight back...we must find it in ourselves to know God has a beautiful plan for our lives and we must seek Him to have it fulfil us. We have been lied to and deceived...we ourselves must repent for turning our backs on God and having our fellowship restored with Him and In Him that we may be Healed from the physical damage and trust in the Power of our Spiritual woman. The Holy Spirit desires to come in clean up house and send all of our tormentors packing! If we look at this from a competitive view...we are not going to let satan win and take us out of the game.

Please know....I understand...hiding in the valley for so long in isolation has weakened your muscles and you have a hard time climbing the mountain before you...spend sometime healing and strengthening yourself to start the climb of Victory. When you get to the will see a whole new perspective on life and begin to charge into the enemy's camp and take back what belongs to you. You may even begin to help may begin to out your true destiny.

You all have watched Cinderella for years she was stuck in a castle dungeon to be the slave to an evil stepmother and stepsisters...who literally were robbing her of her destiny...keeping her from living out what she was meant for...until one day...she was giving the opportunity to escape...she seized the moment...SHE proactively...intentionally...made a CONSCIENCE descision...the Prince just may be for her!!!! Despite her rags, her shame, her poverty...she got COMPETITIVE GIRLS...SHE RAISE UP OUT OF HER PIT AND CLAIMED VICTORY OVER DEFEAT...NO LONGER WOULD SHE LIVE IN THE DUNGEON BUT NOW IN A CASTLE OF GLORY! We too have a castle of glory with JESUS CHRIST!!!

I know its hard to understand...why...It may be because God is going to use you to change a church, a community, a may be because God is going to use you to change a classroom of kids, it may be because God is going to use you to share the good news to a tribe of people in an unknown territory half way across the world....and satan doesnt like the idea of YOU being worth anything he attacked your persons to bombard you with tormentors to paralyze and keep you from being all YOU are suppose to be in the Lord.

I wonder if we all looked at such a physical catastrophe to the heart of a woman as a spirtual catastrophe we would come to see the greater reprocutions in the spiritual. In the physical state it just involves us as an individual...however in the spiritual if satans schemes work and keep us from our many others suffer from never encountering the love of God through us and satan's plan of defense has been more succesful than even he could have imagined. We will never know if the Prince is for us...unless we go after it. We are not defined by what has happened to us...we are defined by who we BELONG to...You are a daughter of the KING!

Please know I am not trying to minimize a tradgey but help find purpose in why it would even happen. Does this change us....YES...does this take apart of our souls...YES...will we ever forget it...NO...will we ever HEAL...YES IN JESUS CHRIST...can anything good ever come from such evil...IF WE LET IT...IF WE LET IT....IF WE LET IT...IF WE LET IT...IF WE FIGHT AGAINST IT...CLAIMING HIS VICTORY WE CAN BE HEALED AND THEN HELP OTHERS AND THEN USE IT FOR HIS GLORY...WHICH BRINGS US BACK TO WHY WE WERE CREATED IN THE FIRST PLACE!

More Bread, Please!

>> Sunday, January 22, 2012

When I ponder this verse… Matthew 7:9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? 10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

Can I contemplate out loud? Have your kids every come up to you and say, “Juice, Juice,” “More, More,” “Cookies, Cookies?” They are asking to be filled. What if we were like little children towards our heavenly Father? What if, in the way I prayed I asked God for: more...more bread please...or how about more....“deliverance, deliverance,” “healing, healing,” “More, More,?” How much more will God give us if we ask for more? What are we hungry for? What drives us to His side?

Please dont think I am naming or claiming...Please know that I AM naming and claiming the promises which God has spoken to me in the scriptures. Dont let words freak you out! Did Jesus not come to deliver us!? Is He not the great Physician that we ask for healing? Or you say these things but really dont believe them? Ok, good we are on the same page...believe what is written and ask in faith...good! Isaiah 61:1 KJV 1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;....DELIVERANCE!!!!

So, if we ask will He not give? Does He not say, how much more will He give that which is good to those who ask? If I ask for healing, will He give me a stone? If I ask for deliverance, will he give me a snake? Just a thought…God I ask for more of YOU to be given out that I may be full. Lord, will you fill me?...Smile…Lord, thank you in advance for being faithful…for the filling! Lord, I am your child and just want to ask...for.... “More, More of YOU!”

Want to see a miracle? Want to see deliverance, healing, freedom or grace fall on those you love? He says in Matthew 7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

James 1:6-8 KJV 6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. 7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. 8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
