Fear God...

>> Wednesday, May 30, 2012

Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 KJV 13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. 14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

When we fear God, we yield, submit, obey and comply with His ways, His standards, His commandments, His Words, His requests, .....

Before we jump to conclusions...God would like us to hear the whole matter, all sides, all involved parties. Fear God, keep HIS commandments...for this is the whole duty of man...to fear Him and keep His commandments. Not so hard, right!?

It would seem fair if we are one of those parties, amen!

No worries, everything whether good or evil will be exposed, God will have the last word. So whether now or later judgment is coming, no need to get in God's way, He already has it all taken care of. Amen!

Next time a matter surfaces that just doesnt seem right...go and hear from all involved...be apart of the solution, not the problem and let us all seek to glorify God in our actions and responses to a problem.

YOU ARE POSITIONED BY GOD AND HIGHLY FAVORED!!!! Be obedient and let us understand what our whole duty is to God!


Grace...Love...Holy Ghost be with us All!

>> Friday, May 25, 2012


 2Co 13:14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, [be] with you all. Amen. <<[The second [epistle] to the Corinthians was written from Philippi, [a city] of Macedonia, by Titus and Lucas.]>>

May the grace..(.the supernatural empowerment to do that which you could not do on your own)...of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all today!

Today, maybe we will be able to love someone we are struggling with...forgive them as God forgave us. I dont mean pacify them, I mean to forgive, which means not to dwell on it, bring it back up, talk about it, nor allow it to stand between you, and move forward in your heart.

Forgiveness is not only releasing them in our heart, but asking God on their behalf to forgive them also. By asking God, you are telling God how much you desire for them to have forgiveness also. It's a beautiful thing for the individual asking...the domino effect is hopefully the other party will come to understand and see the work of Jesus in us, Amen!

Another opportunity maybe not to be so stressed out, reacting or respondingso quickly negatively to our surroundings. Such as, someone not meeting up to our expectations, on the job, in the car, at school, at home....deep breath in....exhale out... :) or placing ourselves in our prayer closets to communion with God, calm our nerves and allow Him to reign down His peace...my personal favorite!

May the love of God be with you all today! The essence of LOVE is God! Have you ever just felt so overwhelmed with love...it is but God...it is a filling...a peace in your heart...a smile on your face for everyone...its another dimensional experience happening in our inner man that strengthens us and pours over into our physical sense. That is the kind of love that is desired for us today! All is well with the God and the world, and your J.O.Y. (R) just oozes over.

May the communion of the Holy Ghost be with you all today! THIS IS ESSENTIAL TO EVERY BELIEVERS WALK WITH GOD. The very word in the greek means to be intimate with as a wife and husband do, the word in the greek is intercourse. We must understand the importance of acknowleging and abiding with the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost's role in our lives is a gift to empower us with God's plan and purpose for our lives. Without His power, acknowlegement, and guidance we are helpless in impacting the kingdom of God.

I realize for many...many...of American churches we have stayed away from mentioning, including, needing the filling of the Holy Ghost...seek the scriptures...its hindering our ability...we are nothing but a lump of clay...it is the Holy Ghost that brings life and the ability to do God's work in and through us. Yes, we can do lots of work for God...in our own strength. You may say, "Whats the difference?" I would answer, "Start praying and asking God to show you!" Titus and Lucas are not desiring that we would have such a close intimate communion with the Holy Ghost because it will hurt or hinder us. Its because its impossible to please God without Him.

We can do nothing for God and take credit for it, so how do we do anything to avoid robbing God of His glory...simple...we dont...He does it through us...How does He do that...the Holy Ghost. Amen!

May we all be blessed today and everyday thereafter, with this beautiful encourgement of grace, love and the Holy Ghost!



Worship in Spirit and Truth...

>> Wednesday, May 23, 2012


 Joh 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
 Joh 4:24 God [is] a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship [him] in spirit and in truth.
If true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth, and God is a Spirit, and they that worship HIM must worship HIM in spirit and in truth...I think it safe to say...we are spirits also!

We are spirits in a human costume!
Ecclesiastes 12:7 KJV 7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

God's nature is not material or matter...spirit is the exact opposite, we cant see it and God requires a spiritual worship IT'S internal, not a material or external one. Worship to God is not an outer show of "here I am", its one that is deep within ourselves, the core of our being meeting with His being...where are hearts meet. Its an attitude of our will.

This is just one example of many in the scriptures that God says, I don't want your outer show of doing your "rituals" that you think will appease me!

Isaiah 1:10-20 KJV 10 Hear the word of the LORD, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah. 11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats. 12 When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts? 13 Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting. 14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them. 15 And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood. 16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;
17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. 18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. 19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: 20 But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

He doesn't want our vain service, HE WANTS OUR HEARTS!!! HE WANTS YOU!!! HE WANTS ME!!! He wants honor, respect, obedience, and adoration towards Himself. He wants us to draw nigh unto Him. Isn't amazing God wants us so much? It isn't "going" to church...its "being" the church...it isn't "doing" for God...it is "being" with God. We are not saved to served...we are saved to glorify God and in seeking Him and making it all about Him.

 God doesn't need our service. Service is not "working" for God, rather, it is loving others by God's work. Service isn't something we do for God rather something He does through us. We dont have to force it, it will come supernaturally through us as we are intimate with Him! THERE IS SUCH A DIFFERENCE!

God hates it when we live life our way, doing whatever we want, doing evil and justifying it as good. It isn't the outer actions, its the motives of our hearts. Are we operating in sinful pleasureful desires that make us feel good regardless of the scriptures or are we living our lives according to the scriptures even when it hurts, or feels uncomfortable? ex: what good is it to love someone who loves you back, have you extended love to someone who is unlovable?

 Do we avoid conflict? Conflict is an opportunity to glorify God, not ourselves. We are not to protect ourselves from confrontation, we are to do what is right in love. How will anyone see God really works, and that His Spirit is victorious if we never engage Him and we run from opportunities?  Have we given love, prayed for our enemies or bless those that curse us? That is part of worship to God! God desires us to be the hands and feet of Jesus, then go and praise in His courts. Not, go sin and then come and go through your motions of sacrifices.... Ps 51:17 The sacrifices of God [are] a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

Preparing to worship in spirit is to clear our minds and the distractions and be fully concentrated on God and not allow our minds to wander. No matter how sincere we are in our hearts if we are not worshipping in truth, God cant accept it. This is a lifestyle not just an event in our day!

Being led by the Word of God, being intentional that our whole hearts and minds are fully engaged before the Lord...we can only begin to experience a worship that is spirit filled and in truth.

I personally have come to find, that singing and praying just to pray can seem repetitious. Then there are times when I am fully engaged with the Lord in my heart and mind and it is as if a window in heaven opened above me. I cant really put it into words, but I can say there have been times that have been very special to me...fully connected and not wanting my worship time to stop. Then there are days, the Spirit shows me the love of God and I extend that love and see how a lifestyle of worship can look. IT IS GLORIOUS!

Worship is a lifestyle, its how we think, how we move, how we react, how we respond...in our lifestyle are we glorifying God?

God deserves our very best concentrated effort to FOCUS on Him and Him alone! Having a passion and a hunger and thirst for Him brings us into our desire to please Him know Him MORE.

Today, kinda be aware of how you pray...are you distracted...when you worship God, have you entered in with Him with a whole heart, not looking at your watch and wondering when can I be out of here, I have a zillion things on my to do list today.

James 4:8 KJV 8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

If you don't do this already, here is a suggestion: Give yourself 20 minutes to sit down in a quiet place...close your eyes, empty your heart and mind and just start verbalizing the greatness of God...mediate on His wondrous works, His promises, His character and His amazing love...read His Word out loud...acknowledge He is God, Lord, Creator and start cleansing your heart of all unrighteousness...repent...ask for forgiveness for rejecting or rebelling against Him. Coming into His courts with thanksgiving with respect of our rightful places...you and I will find ourselves on our way to a meaningful time of worship with God in spirit and in truth!



As for God,....


2 Samuel 22:29-37 KJV 29 For thou art my lamp, O LORD: and the LORD will lighten my darkness. 30 For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall. 31 As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him. 32 For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God? 33 God is my strength and power: and he maketh my way perfect. 34 He maketh my feet like hinds' feet: and setteth me upon my high places. 35 He teacheth my hands to war; so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms. 36 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy gentleness hath made me great. 37 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me; so that my feet did not slip.

Here is just a snippet into David's life with God! David does not brag on himself to have the power to do anything. He isnt saying look at me...I have eyes to see and I have run through a troop...I have leaped over a wall...I have gone to high places...I am a great warrior...I have enlarged my steps...I...I...I...I.

I nothing. Like the lump of clay we are with a brain, we can think we have rights to take credit for our accomplishments...Its mine...Its mine.

David understood his greatness was because the Lord was his strength and POWER, and anything he, David did was, God making his way perfect!

Let's just analyze this one verse...For by thee, I have run through a troop...A troop of men can be extremely large...David ran through the extremely large group of men undetected! David didnt say I did it...He said, "For by God!" Then, by my God, have I leaped over a wall...for David to write this, I am going to assume the wall was a bordering wall of great height and not some rocks that a farmer stacked up to 4 feet...are you with me on this! David leaped over a tall building...its a bird...its a plane...no it is super David!!! Ok, Got a little carried away there, but really God carried him over the wall!!! Who needs super hero's, when we have the Lord, Amen!!!

Two amazing feats, done by an ordinary man with an extra ordinary God...In chapter 22, David sings his songs to God for all that God has done. He sings, I will call on the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

Imagine, David must have witnessed and partook in the amazing supernatural works of God over 4,000 years ago (est). God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. What God did for David, He can do for us too!

David says, The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness, that he kept the ways of the Lord, and he kept himself from iniquity. The Lord desires obedience, He promises to reward those who diligent seek Him. He makes it known He shares His glory with NO ONE...not even me...not even you. David was intentional to a point in his life to honor and follow God. David was a man after God's own heart, God loved David and because of his obedience HE blessed him.

Coming to see everything we are...everything we have...everything we do...is all the power and strength of God...we cannot take credit if we belong to HIM. We are his work and He will give us the power over all of our situations. We may not be running into a troop of men, or climbing over a wall that borders a city...but we may come up against some strong obstacles...nothing is to big, wide, or tall that God cannot take us through!!!

 1Co 15:10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which [was bestowed] upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.

Like a lump of clay, I sit on a Potter's wheel. Helpless and unable to take shape or form, to know up from down, right or wrong. Then a GREAT AWAKENING begins, I begin to hear, "What I have ears!"...the wheel begins to turn...I begin to see.."What! I have eyes." Still helpless and worth absolutly nothing, I cannot move... I cannot form myself or shape  myself... I have ideas...ooooh I have ideas of what I would like to be...If I could just...oooh just make my clay go this way...or not...how about it going that way.

I have no arms or legs, no abilities...and then I feel the Master Potter's Hands, ooh what is He doing, ouch...oooo no that is not in MY plan...what is He doing....uugggh He is squeezing me, eeeekkkk, He is molding me...oooohh Sir, not that way...oooh Sir can I make a suggestion...NO...please lets go out not up...really aaawweee, thats not what I wanted.

Then, He puts me down and walks away...wait a minute, I say, where you going, you cant leave me like this!!! I now see others around me...aaaahhh look I want to be like that one....eeewwweee I sure hope I am not like that one over there....Why does it seem no one is really completed, polished, finished...ooooh the ones that are finished are in a beautiful glass case, with pearly gates...they look real nice!

He is back, ok maybe He will listen to me now...let me give Him my wish list...

Arent we alot like a lump of clay. We are funny people, always wanting to "tell" God, "direct" God, "control" God. Wanting to take "credit" for who we are and what we have become. Look what I am, Look who I am, Look what I have done with myself...ummmm...Can a lump of clay do anything in and of itself?

Walking with God is a lifetime journey of realizing we are so helpless, we are a lump of clay with a brain! We think we are so much more than what we really are. We are but a speck in the grand universe and we are so bossy and demanding, self absorbed, self righteous, and self reliant. Self reliant, how in the world can we rely on ourselves, we are helpless...but not hopeless, Amen!

The Potter begins to shape and mold me, its not comfortable, its not exactly what I thought I wanted. Sometimes I am not sure if He knows what He wants, He shapes me and just when I think He is done, He sprinkles more water and starts to reshape. Its like He keeps seeing a greater master piece in His work in me and keeps adding and shaping some more. I wonder if He will ever be done?

Then there are times...I say "OOH NO" "What does He have in His hand, Is that a knife!!" He cuts some clay away, He adds some clay...ooohhh I dont like this very much...just smash me and get it over with, I cannot bear the pain, the agony, the ugliness of this process any longer!

I have come to see, there is nothing that I am, know, understand, that hasnt been given to me by my Master. There were times I wished I was like someone else, or that someone else looked like me or even better. I have gone through hard times of molding and shaping to get where I am today. God has shown me others have gotten where they are today the same way. Did you know you are just like me? Just a lump of clay!

God wants to make us into useful vessels that are fit for His Kingdom. To often, we want to be useful vessels for our own kingdom...isnt that true. Sometimes its hard to accept we arent what we liked to be...and there is always someone more useful and there is always someone not as useful...but the truth comes down to the only way any of us, are of any use at all, is because of the Potter.

Sometimes we can get discouraged...jealous...bitter...demanding that the Potter just isnt working to His potential in us or others and we wonder, Why. (there we go again, telling the Potter what we think)  When we take our eyes off the Potter we see ourselves and we see others for the good, bad, and ugly. When we gaze into the Potter's eyes, and TRUST his HANDS to mold, shape, direct and guide us individually...we fall in love...we become thankful for His love towards us personally and we are so grateful that He even decided to pick up our lump of clay and begin His work on us.

We still could be sitting on a shelf...never to have AWAKENED to the need of being changed or molded at all. Yet all that I am, all that I ever will be, I owe it all to thee! Lord help us to gaze into your loveliness, help us to worship YOU, help us to be seeking you. Help us, Master Potter...to embrace your work with gratefulness and to yield to the use you created us to do. With our eyes on YOU...I am what I am...but by God's grace go I!

A work in progress we all are...we didnt ask for the style vessel we have...physically or spiritually...we are just to be obedient to be useful for the Master's plan for us individually, Amen!

May I add, looking back...seeing where I am today...hoping where I will be in the future...I wouldnt change a thing...in all of my ugliness, my helplessness, my continue need to be shaped, cut, molded...I wouldnt change a thing...I have learned to gaze into the Potters eyes and all I see is HIM.

That is why we are on a wheel as He works on us...its just me and Him...He gets His way all the time...and I have learned He can see things in me that I cannot. So I have trusted He choices...He is my best friend, He looks out for me and He is constantly removing rough edges, smoothing over the bubbly warts that form and adds water when I am dry. It is but by His Grace...that I am what I am today.

Then one day will come, where I too will be placed in the showcase of all of His beautiful shiny master pieces...I will enter into the pearly gates as well...a master piece in progress until the day of my perfection...I will have gone from one shelf of helplessness being a lump of clay...to another shelf of hopefulness, shiny, beautiful, polished for all eternity.





Ac 2:37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
 Ac 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
The gift we all shall receive is the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost is a part of the trinity...Father, Son and Holy Ghost. The three are one, yet have separate offices or functions...all working together...but with individual missions. The Father is Creator...In Control of All things, Oversees...the Son...He is Redeemer and Deliverer...the Christ, the Messiah...God-man, our interceder...It is in the NAME of JESUS where POWER is imparted from us...the power imparted to us is ...THE HOLY GHOST.

I am disappointed I have lived the first ten years of my walk with God unknowing or not taught the necessity and need of the Holy Ghost. BUT GOD...who is faithful...man didn't teach me the power and need for the Holy Ghost...God did! Man cannot live the abundant supernatural filled with power life without recognizing the Holy Ghost. How is it so many rarely even acknowledge His part in our lives????

Satan the great deceiver has stolen from the believer their power to walk IN Christ...that power is the Holy Ghost...

We are sealed with the Holy Spirit Eph. 1:13, He is our Comforter, He is our teacher for ALL things, He will help us remember the Word John 14:26, He will guide us into ALL truth, and will show us things to come John 16:13 He anoints us, He abides in us, again teaches us all things 1John 2:27, He has given us ALL things pertaining to life and godliness 2Peter 1:3 and as today's verse tells us He IS THE GIFT of naming JESUS.

If you are not trusting or relying in Jesus and enjoying the Gift He has given you...START TODAY!!
Don't put God in a box, they very same Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever along with God and the Holy Spirit. He wants to fill you daily to the over-flow, He wants to empower you to do things you can not even imagine.

Who said Paul and Peter, James and John are the last of the Mohican's?!!! God can use you to do the like or even more...Don't let man discourage you or tell you any different. God has great plans for you, we need to embrace the equipment He has given us to achieve His work in and through us. Our work has nothing to do with us, and the Holy Spirit does the work for one purpose and that is to glorify God...we cannot glorify God on our own. The Holy Spirit has God's back and He assures God's work, God's purpose and agenda and helps us to be obedient to our call!

I would rather die than to have the power of Holy Spirit removed from me...living without His power is like a dry waste land, like a hamster on a wheel...working and never getting anywhere.

Mind you, If you have claimed Jesus you are sealed...however their is much more to the Holy Spirit that meets the eye! Ask God to show you more!!!



Spirit of Truth guides us...

>> Thursday, May 17, 2012

Joh 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

The Spirit of Truth has come! The Holy Spirit resides in us from the moment of our redemption! Eph 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Amen!!

He will guide us into ALL truth...what does it take for you to be guided? We must follow. Many of us are so busy we are doing the leading or being sidetracked with the distractions of life.  We are out of touch with His guiding so, we go off and do things our own way. We come to realize it is our own way because it lacks TRUTH, amen! We cannot do things that we want to do, and self bless it in Jesus' name and think its TRUTH. We must be guided...so often if we are honest with ourselves...we lead the way.

How is that working for us? Many answer...IT'S NOT! We must be intentional to eliminate those things that we have given priority over and get back &, turn back to God.

But look...the Spirit of Truth never talks about himself...He is ALWAYS....ALWAYS... pointing us to Jesus, the Word, our Heavenly Father, and to be more like Christ! He doesn't go back on His Word, He doesn't contradict the Word. He is teaching us right from wrong according to God's standards. He is encouraging us through the Word to be separate from the world, peculiar, different. It never says to attract the world or bring the world in. The Power of the Gospel is in the simplicity in and of itself. Think about the compromises we make leading God.

But here is yet another amazing point to this verse! The Holy Spirit will show us things to come. He warns us, He prepares us...I don't believe we experience anything God doesn't prepare us for! If we think back, if we have been guided we can see the work...the very fingerprints of God unfolding His plan and letting us in on some of those details. We may not understand or know it to the fullest, but He gives us inclinations. Most of us will never see or understand because we are so preoccupied with distractions, we miss the sweet whisper of the Holy Spirit teaching, preparing or even warning us.

1Jo 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
May I say, It is more than going to church for an hour a week. Church is not a relationship with God...Serving is not a relationship with God...Fellowship is not a relationship with God. Spending alone time, intimate quiet time, communing with God, confessing, working out your own salvation with fear and trembling, hungering and thirsting after Him, seeking...most of all ABIDING is where we develop our relationship with God. The Holy Spirit abides in us, no man can teach us the things of God they way God can, we have the anointing because he abides in us and we are told HE teaches us ALL things and is truth and there is no lie! So just as He has taught us we should abide in HIM.

We as a Body of Christ must learn how to depend and be desperate for the Holy Spirit's guide, too many of us follow man...and as we can see as a whole for the Church it isn't working. We must turn back and follow the Holy Spirit...it may take time to learn to hear His prompting...but God promises that without FAITH it is impossible to please HIM and HE is a rewarder to those who diligently seek HIM! By abiding and being guided our serving and fellowship and desire to be in church will come supernaturally...we never want to do the natural thing amen!

May we put all physical things in their proper place...may we prioritize our spiritual necessities above all else...may we understand the function and obedience of God's commissions as He intended them to be.


Remember all your promises and forget all your sins...God doesn't hold them over our heads, the enemy does...we are to examine ourselves and confess to make right with God the errors of our ways and then look to HIM, satan would have you internalize and dwell...this is not of God it takes our focus off of Jesus...our confession and turning from our ways is all God asks and He forgives instantly without hesitation. Walk in freedom as we were made to walk...God is working all things out for good to those who love Him and those He has called, Amen!!!


Complete in Him

>> Wednesday, May 16, 2012

Good Morning!

Col 2:10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

Ever feel out of sorts, on the fringe, just dont fit in? Lies the world wants to yell at you! Your not
smart enough, rich enough, fun enough, pretty enough, really...who is? However....IN CHRIST...

We are told we are COMPLETE IN HIM...He is the head of ALL...the end all be all! Why are we comparing ourselves to what the world wants us to mold to?

There is always more to learn no matter what level we are at, more money to be made no matter how much our bank accounts tell us, there is always a bigger mountain to climb and no matter how much outter work we do on ourselves...its not about the outside, its about the inside...the beauty of our hearts...where Christ resides!

You wanna know what I would love you all to take away today is that you are beautifully put together, you are richer than any worldly bank account, you have wisdom beyond the books and your enjoyment comes from an all together different adventure...YOU ARE COMPLETE JUST THE WAY YOU ARE IN CHRIST!!!

God didnt need to clean up your act before He swooped down and loved on you, did He!? He took you just the way you are and it is His work that is transforming us. Dont let the world and humanism lie and condemn you...You are free...you are loved...you are complete and accepted....
 Eph 1:6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
 Eph 1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

We are RICH...WE HAVE JESUS...WE ARE ACCEPTED AND COMPLETE IN HIM!!! This world is not our home...we are just traveling though a physical world in the spiritual realm...we must not allow the physical to distract our purpose and mission...which is to LIVE through this life with abundant grace and power to GLORIFY GOD and show the physical world that our Spiritual God is real and works!!Amen!!!

Ps. We can compare our clothes...they arent designer enough...your birthday suit is just a physical custome...let us not get so obssessed in decorating it, amen!!


If you become a follower of the blog, I believe you will get updates sent to you when we post! Love Deb.


We have been DELIVERED.....

>> Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Good Morning!

We have been delivered from the power of darkness and translated into the kingdom of His dear Son! Col 1:13
Remember Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

We have been delivered from satans power over us!
We are now no longer under satans kingdom but Jesus'!
We are now children of light 1Jo 1:5 ¶ This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
1Jo 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

In the Name of Jesus, because of His Blood, and His Word...we can humble ourselves to God...resist the devil and he WILL flee! He has zero power over us...if we BELIEVE and we are
fully persuaded. It doesnt mean he doesnt stop trying...however what it does mean is that he doesnt get anymore victory over us because Jesus gave us surpassing
victory when HE ROSE AGAIN...He conquerored death with our names on it...so we can conqueror more for His kingdom now!

Struggling with inner torment...thought life running you ragged...angry and bitter and not sure why...fearful of the "what if's"???????

Take out some time, go into your prayer closet claim your verse its God's Holy Word with Power, you come in Jesus' Name, and your power rests only
because of Jesus and His precious blood and PRAY AGAINST YOUR TORMENT....humble yourself name your trouble and resist the thoughts, feelings and
emotions in Jesus Name and you will be surprise the peace that comes over you when the enemy is made to leave at the sound of His Great Name!!!

We live in a physical world but we are spiritual beings and our battles are in the spiritual...we must encourage each other to fight in the spiritual realm to have
surpassing victory. We need each other, we need likemindedness and realize who we are up against...together if we all could lock elbows we could shake
the very foundation of hell, AMEN!!!

God tells us to love one another throughout scriptures...want to know one of the reasons? Satan HATES LOVE...he is the very opposite of all God is! If we love
one another (which is the part of what we have been translated into from our delivery!!!) he will flee...love conquerors all! The Power of the Holy Spirit will win
everytime if we humble ourselves to Him!!

Php 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
 Php 2:14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
 Php 2:15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

Who is working in us? ...What is He doing in and through us?...Why is He working in us?

It is God that is doing HIS WILL because of HIS good pleasure...so think about that...God desires to transform us and if He is doing the work He will use all
of our day to day activities and conflicts to do so. Which means, even when we mess up, God is training us to exercise HIS WILL and respond as He would
like us to! Rom 8:28 God is working ALL things out...do we believe this? If we do, we not only love God for taking our messy broken selfs and fixing us but
we now can see with spiritual eyes and see He is doing that with everyone else. As we see this we can claim...we wrestle not with flesh and blood...so if
we struggle with the tormentors of jealousy, anger, bitterness, inferiority etc...it truly is God working out HIs good pleasure.He wants to change us, he wants
us to love and encourage others, even when they cant see the truth....father forgive them they know not what they do! It shows us not to hold someone
else at such a high standard without giving them the benefit of the doubt when we ourselves are in desperate need of God's grace and molding, amen!!!

We all are capable of doing it and therefore should understand when it is done to us...to be compassionate and loving.

that is why He says, do all things without murmings and complaining...love one another...so we are blameless and harmless children of God without rebuke
in this perverse world...we are the ones that ought to shine!

May we all desire God's transforming grace upon us, as we are on the front lines in training with life, so that we can take accountability for ourselves
not complain and shine for Jesus!



Who might you love on today that is unloveable...love is unconditional...dont look for anything back...it becomes contagious


The Lord shall GUIDE YOU....

>> Wednesday, May 9, 2012


Isa 58:11 And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.

Struggling with direction? The Lord shall guide you continually...it is He that satisfies...the promises of God are rich and faithful...and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water
whose waters fail not!! Its yours! He promises.

Do we feel like we have no direction? That we are dry and in desperate need of being satisfied? Are we all dried up? WHY? Lies...lies from them enemy...God's promises are for you to take hold of live out,
not stand off in a distance wishing...wondering....if this could ever be you!!!!

He shall guide us...ask and you shall receive...seek and you shall find...knock and it shall be open unto you! Sometimes, we can get to a stale dry place...we have wondered off from Him. Confess...repent...
and be restored. He loves us with an everlasting love...unfailing grace...unlimited mercy! He wants us to be FILLED TO THE OVERFLOW in His goodness.

there is one catch....

If you will turn from doing your pleasure on His holy day and delight in the sabbath and honor Him and stop finding your own pleasure and speaking your own words....THEN....shall you delight yourself in the Lord thus saith the Lord.

What do we do to ourselves? Why do we get sidetracked? If we are off doing our own thing...let us come back to HIM...is it a wonder we can be dry? Obeying God is where the abundance of blessings flow...
why delay our own blessings or the blessings we can be to someone else...love God...do what He asks...and He pours out His blessing...it is just that simple...dont we all want this? Then shouldnt we do it
God's way? AFter all, we are bought with a price we no longer are our own, but His!

Isa 58:9 Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;
 Isa 58:10 And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday:
 Isa 58:11 And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.
 Isa 58:12 And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.
 Isa 58:13 If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:
 Isa 58:14 Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.



Who Has BLESSED Us....

>> Tuesday, May 8, 2012


Eph 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

Who has blessed us with ALL...ALL...not a few...not some...not half...ALL spiritual blessings in heavenly places IN CHRIST!

We can say GOOD NIGHT to that AMEN! Here it is...there is nothing withheld from us we have it ALL. Now you may say what is it we have?
What are these spiritual blessings...EVERYTHING that is not physical...think about that!

In Christ we have been transformed and that continues (2 Cor 3:17-18), as our battle comes from the prince and powers of the air, He has
equipped us to have ALL power over the enemy (luke 10:19) and therefore as we are on this earthly journey that is not our home, we are
MORE than CONQUERORS... remember from last week...we have SURPASSING VICTORY!!!! We get this VICTORY from IN CHRIST!

While we are here, we can overcome evil with good, we can exercise our fruit and gifts from the HOLY SPIRIT...supernatural...quite spiritual
when you think about where we all have been...where we are today...and where we are headed...its all God...its all spiritual and it is quite heavenly

Then if that where not exciting enough that we have it made here...the things to come, we cant even begin to imagine...our life in eternity with
Christ our Lord...we will have it ALL.

Because of our Belief in Him and being fully persuaded that He is Able, just aggravates the enemy that much more, so the battles increase
and it can "appear" that we are alone...but that is a lie...God promises never to leave us nor forsake us...and He has already promised and
told us in His Word we are fully equipped. Now its up to us to exercise our authority and heir ship and show the enemy we already have
surpassing victory over him, we can walk IN CHRIST and it is like a calm assurance as all hell breaks out around us! It can be hard...we must not
go on our feelings or emotions as they can be highly influenced by the enemy with lies....we must go and move out in facts and truth alone! We may
not understand...but we can walk through anything in faith and trusting Him that He has us in the palm of our hands!

FACT:...TRUTH: We have already won...God has given us All spiritural blessings...we are blessed beyond the curse! IN CHRIST we have it ALL!

Today, if you struggle with understanding the depth of this...ask God to reveal this truth to you...He will! In the meantime remember we walk by faith
not by sight...trust God, take Him at His word even if you dont understand and He will walk you through it! Try HIm! Jesus never fails us!



Without Faith...

>> Monday, May 7, 2012


Heb 11:5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.
 Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
 Heb 11:7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

WOW! to imagine...we will not see death essentially either...because before our death we have a testimony...by faith I hope we all please God, Amen!!!

However...without faith it says...which leads us to see we must be proactive in our relationship with God...without faith IT IS IMPOSSIBLE to please God...we must believe
that HE IS who he says he is annnnd get this...when we believe, have faith, and are fully persuaded that HE is a rewarded to them that diligently seek Him, we get the blessing.
To please God is to have faith and believe Him with all we have for all He is worth!!!! The abundant life, the packed storehouses, the flow of the living water...it never runs out

We have a big part to play in our walk with God...we must be intentional to believe and trust God and in doing so we take Him at His word and in doing that
He rewards us because in order to do all that we must be diligently seeking HIM. Draw night to Him and He will draw nigh to you...ask and it will be given, seek and you shall find
knock and it shall be open...just believe...a double minded man is unstable in all His ways...

Stepping out in faith, doing what God tells us to do without having a clue what it looks like...could change the course of our lives, the lives of others, or the world!!!

He rewards us with spiritual things...more faith...more blessings...more power...because we were proactive in seeking HIM!

Halelujiah...its a win...win everytime!!! I LOVE GOD...HIS WAYS...HIS TRUTHS AND THE LIFE HE GIVES US...AMEN!!




Spirit of Adoption

>> Wednesday, May 2, 2012


Ro 8:15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
 Ro 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
 Ro 8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

We are no longer in spirit of bondage to fear...because we HAVE received THE Spirit of Adoption...we have been adopted into the family of God
by HIS Spirit. We belong to the God of the Universe! He calls us His own and we know this because our spirit now bears witness with His claiming
us His children. Now, as we are His children...He loves us all ...and He has made us heirs...joint-heirs with Christ....
He has given us everything pertaining to life and godliness. He has given us access! He has given us precious promises that
guarantee our Postion in HIM!

And why....do we feel less than? Are we truly believing that we have been given such a great gift? I know it can be difficult, we can think we are so
undeserving...we wonder how can this be...NO longer should anyone born again believer struggled with His acceptance...their is freedom in this...and I desire
to encourage you to embrace this truth!

think of it like this...if you were adopted...you could be adopted by a family who loves you and their potential to invest in you could range from just love
to riches and opportunities because of income. You have been adopted into God's family that may not pour out the "funds" over you...but He definately
has poured out the Spiritual gifts and has given us everything that is capable of enabling us to live to our full potential in Christ!

You have been accepted, loved, and valued just the way you are! Despite earthly ties, your spiritual ties are established through the Spirit of Truth by the
blood of Jesus.

Wow, do we understand the depth of our resources in Jesus?!!!! Do we understand how big our family is?!!! Are we taking full advantage of our Position
in Christ and using it to glorify HIM?!!! We should be honored to share in HIs suffering so He can receive all the glory!

Remember with already have surpassing victory in Christ...If God is for us who can be against us...and its all because of our relationship IN HIM!

Fear is not of God...bottom line...God is not the spirit of fear, but love, POWER, and a sound mind! We are set free from bondage and given he
heirship of the Ruler of the Universe...do you think our Daddy likes to see us defeated? ABSOLUTELY NOT...that is why we are equipped for surpassing
victory...let us all live life to the fullest IN HIM! AMEN!

GLORY!!! GOD'S GLORY!!! How amazing!

YOUR ARE POSITIONED BY GOD AND HIGHLY FAVORED!!! As Jesus said, Believe on me...Follow me...love the father...obey my words...Jesus said!

1) a fellow heir, a joint heir
2) one who obtains something assigned to himself with others, a joint participant


God be for us...

>> Tuesday, May 1, 2012


 Ro 8:31 ¶ What shall we then say to these things? If God [be] for us, who [can be] against us?
He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth?  (Romans 8:32-33 KJV)

How many of us have "read" this verse and meandered over it and commented thats nice?

Do we understand the implications of this verse?! This is prelude of yesterdays verses that we
have surpassing victory and nothing can take His love away from us.

Gods desire is to transform us more and more into His image. We need confidence and assurance
that this can happen...we must be fully persuaded that when He says we are joint-heirs with Jesus
we understand what that means to us!! (tomorrows word)

Are we struggling with the "feelings" that we arent accepted? valued? appreciated?
Are we "feeling" alone and like the whole world..or the whole "church" is up against us?
Are we burdened with the spiritual battle that never seems to let up?

Nothing but lies...If God be for us..WHO...exactly WHO...your mom...your dad...your siblings...your boss..
family members...church members...neighbors...SATAN and his demons... WHO CAN BE AGAINST US?

He tells us He gave us His own Son,,shall he not with him also freely FREELY give us ALL THINGS!

Who can lay anything against us...It is God who justifies and God who condemns and we are no longer
under condemnation in Christ Jesus! (Rom 8:1)

Today...may we live with surpassing victory...fully persuaded that in all of our oppositions, obstacles, and attacks
God is just creating opportunities to reveal our surpassing victory!!! Go ahead try Him out!!!!! He is real and He works!

Memorize and remind yourself daily...I have surpassing victory and if God be for me who can be against me!!!! (satan get behind me!!)


Recieve your position and walk it out IN Christ! BE ENCOURAGED!!!

With much love for the truth and the brethren!!!
