THE POWER IN LETTING GO!!!

Letting go of those things in which we love is never easy, but sometimes there is great power therein, see, without the Word and Spirit of God being saturated within, our hearts are most deceptive and will lead us into all sorts of sin.

Arrogance, selfishness and pride just to name a few, it takes the Word and Spirit of God to show us, about us, that which is ugly, that which is true.

So many of us miss out on God’s best for fear of giving up on our own dreams, our own will, our own way, so we move full speed ahead not seeking at all God’s face, nor listening at all to what He is trying to say, and it’s “only” when we find ourselves in that dark place that we choose to pray, when God wants continual, perpetual fellowship with His children in every situation, every circumstance, every hour, every minute, every second of each and every day.

Total surrender, total submission, letting go of our own desires, letting go of our own selfish ambition.

Jeremiah 29:11 tells us that God has a prosperous plan for each of us, yet, we refuse to believe, we refuse to trust, when, to walk in God’s will, faith and trust is a must.

I’m not saying that to walk in God’s will is to walk trial and tribulation free, but through the storms we have an inner joy and peace, and spiritual eyes to clearly see.

We see that at the end of the tunnel there is a light, we see that our faith muscles are getting bigger and stronger with every fight, we see that despite all the opposition it’s still God’s will that true, God’s will that’s right.

We also see that it’s complete brokenness that propels God to show, we see that faithfulness to God’s will is what gives us that righteous glow, and of our own selves, we see,

THE POWER IN LETTING GO!!!

FAITH!!!

praying-hands-clipart-3

Faith is a peace, a calm down on the inside, when the storms of life arise, it’s on eagles wings that faith will propel one to ride, surfing the tide, knowing, that this to must be God’s will and in God’s will choosing to abide.

Faith is glorifying our Lord more and more and self, less and less, it’s the ability to look for nuggets in the midst of life’s mess, instead of allowing fear to cause us to hesitate or plainly say no, faith will cause us, in spite of fear, to shout YES LORD YES.

FAITH!!!

Faith can’t be applied without a test, designed, not for us to fail, but to bring out our very best, to reveal to us that it’s only in the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit that we are able to find complete rest, knowing, that past, present and future sins, from “God’s” eyes have been cast as far as the east is from the west.

This, the Bible says God has delivered unto each man a measure thereof, so walk by: faith, in: peace and joy, and with: a whole lot of love.

I’m not talking about that fake humanistic love that we’re used too, but that love which is true, agape love from above which is less about what we say and more about what we do.

Step by step moving from glory to glory, from place to place, you can do it; you can finish this race, by continuing to seek God’s face, and by continuing to walk, not by what you see, but…by,

FAITH!!!

 

 

YOU ARE!!!

space_shining_star_2114

You are a masterpiece fearfully and wonderfully created by our Creator, uniquely made for a purpose, so of no one, be an imitator.

 

Life may not be happening the way you thought it would, things may not be going the way you think they should,

 

but know, for your life, God still has a master plan, I know that the enemy has told you time and time again, that it’s over for you, you can’t do it, but God sent me to tell you, “YES YOU CAN”, because,

 

YOU ARE!!!

 

You are His, and He is yours, He is the way when closed are all the other doors,

 

Yeah, you’ve been through this, that and the other thing, though none of it was meant to take you out, but rather to give you a testimony, and a song of thanksgiving to sing.

 

Our God has been with you through it all, right there to lift you up again after every fall.

 

He’s extending His mighty right hand unto you even now, saying: get up one more time, while keeping your eyes stayed on “ME”, not on the mountain that you have yet to climb; because,

 

YOU ARE!!!

 

You are a jewel, a diamond in the rough, though, to get that polished shine is never easy, but indeed very tough.

 

All that you need is already on the inside of you, but the Holy Spirit is needed to shape it, mold it, and to bring it through.

 

So trust, and know that our God is just.

 

Through the sacrificial Blood of The Lamb you have the victory already, it’s not in your own will and plan, but in our Savior’s  will that you must walk, not perfectly but steady.

 

All of your life has been preparation for such a time as this, so arise to the challenges, so that, God’s divine purpose for your life, you won’t miss.

 

It’s your time to; through the Power of The Holy Spirit, shine like a star, it’s your time to show the world, it’s God’s child that,

 

YOU ARE!!!

ABOVE THE STORM!!!

Screenshot 2016-04-11 at 11.32.20 PMStorms are a part of life, but not sent to destroy,rather to usher us into total surrender, submission and ultimately a place where peace passes all human understanding, and unspeakable joy.

Storms are sent to strengthen our faith and develop godly character and integrity, but we must keep our eyes on the Trinity, while being led into total serenity.

And this is how we fly,

ABOVE THE STORM!!!

In the midst of the bitter and cold, this is how we stay warm, by staying focused on Him who gives us grace when within our flesh lies a great thorn.

The mighty hand of God is upon you and I, He’s perpetually preparing us for when it’s above the storm that we must fly.

These storms are not meant to kill us in the midst thereof, but to teach us how to soar like an eagle by remaining focused on our Lord  who looks low but is seated at the right hand of The Father, who is seated high above,

in Heavenly places, where our spirit can also dwell, being captivated by angelic faces.

All while being surrounded by the demons that the storm has brought in, sent to steal, kill and destroy by offering us a deceptive way to win, they would have us to focus on the storm, causing fear and a greater temptation to sin.

But it’s,

ABOVE THE STORM!!!

This is where we were created to soar, defeating the enemy in his game of war.

Boldly professing God’s word, but God’s word can only be professed when God’s word is heard.

We must study to show ourselves approved, we must stand as the tree that’s planted by the water of the river and not be moved.

Victory is yours, victory is mine, “this” we must stand on right in the middle of the storm where the sun does not shine, but the Power of the Son is ever so strategic, ever so divine.

It’s His Holy Spirit that will lead us every step of the way, our part is to trust and obey, listening diligently to the words that the Holy Spirit say.

If you can’t hear His voice at this particular time, then stand still on what He has already said, knowing that His promises to you are not dead,

but fully alive indeed, and the storms bring water and nutrition to your planted seed, the storms are not at all comfortable, but for the storms, there is a need.

These storms we must go through, I believe these are to see if it’s to our faith that we’re willing to remain true, if we are willing to allow the Holy Spirit to lead us through.

It’s the witnessing of our Heavenly Father bringing us through the storms that builds muscle to our faith, and character to our spiritual form, it’s then that we are ready to soar like an eagle,

ABOVE THE STORM!!!

COMING THROUGH!!!

 

Coming Screenshot 2016-04-05 at 11.59.55 PM Through

 

Believe that you are coming through this hot and dry season, it may not be fun, it may not be easy but it is all for a reason.

Your being prepared for that place of purpose, that place of destiny, from all the bondage your being loosed, you’re being set free, and free indeed.

The Spirit of God is with you every step of the way, so know that you’re not alone, our God is still on His throne, He’s shaping, molding you more and more to be here on earth, Jesus’ clone.

The game is already won, through the perfect, sinless life, death and Resurrection of our Heavenly Father’s only begotten Son.

The ultimate sacrifice that He made, the path to victory that He laid, even when victory seems non-existent, or delayed,

remember, you’re just,

 

COMING THROUGH!!!

 

Going through the wilderness to reach that place of promise is sometimes a must, despite the pain and discomfort, remaining in God’s will is the best place in the whole wide world to be and in that, you can trust, even when it seems as though your dreams, your plans has turned to dust.

Father knows best, He is “LOVE”, He is “TRUTH”, and He has invited the weary to come to Him so He can give us rest, so keep your eyes stayed on The Lord and you “WILL” past this test.

Our Lord will not leave you in this place, so you can keep your faith, know that God is there even when you can’t hear His voice, or see His face.

God the Father, His only begotten Son and His Holy Spirit is using even this to make you whole, make you new, it’s to His will, His word that We are to remain true, knowing that, in the mighty name of Jesus, “WE ARE”,

 

COMING THROUGH!!!

 

 

 

 

 

Jeremiah 29:11

Screenshot 2016-04-02 at 1.06.01 PM

For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace , and not evil, to give you an expected end.

 

Created With Peace In Mind!!!

 

Created by “LOVE” with thoughts of peace toward us, though sometimes it’s hard to believe, it’s hard to trust, in the midst of this world that’s filled with many distractions and so much lust.

Through it all “LOVE’S” desire is to bring us to HIS expected end, but oftentimes we stray away from “LOVE’S” given path, and “LOVE’S” rules, we tend to bend.

Thankfully “LOVE” is also mercy and grace, “LOVE” equips us, “LOVE” prepares us for that purposed place, It’s through “LOVE” that we are guaranteed victory at the end of this race.

So, don’t let go, but hold fast, only trust in that in which for eternity will last, moving forward step, by step forgetting those things which are in the past.

For, you were,

 

Created With Purpose In Mind!!!

 

Remember this when life is bitter and unkind, know that “LOVE’S” grace is new every morning, so we can continue pressing forward, not rewind.

Now is the time to get up and press toward the mark of the high prize, no more listening to the enemy, because all he speak is lies, your plan, your vision, all the enemy does is criticize.

But “LOVE” has given you an expected end, so when all else seems lost, it’s on “LOVE” that you can depend, He’s always here sticking closer than your closest friend.

Our Heavenly Father and Creator is “LOVE”, and His Holy Spirit has descended down upon you like a dove, empowering you to to fulfill that purpose which fits you like a glove.

The power lies within you to loose the devil’s bind, this Holy Power, nowhere else in the universe will you be able to find, but it is freely offered to us “ALL”, by HIM in which we were “ALL”

 

Created With Peace In Mind!!!

 

 

 

 

That Name!!!

image

That Name which is above every name, in Heaven, and here on Earth,
This is the Name that holds the highest value, it holds the most worth.

There is healing in That Name, deliverance in That Name, total freedom in That Name,
It’s now over two thousand years after the sinless life, crucifying death and His resurrection, and That Name still has world wide fame,
though many “still” reject His claim.

In That Name lies salvation,
it’s to That Name that we are to give hours upon hours of meditation,
it’s in That Name that we find strength and courage to move forward with no fear, no hesitation,
it’s That Name that gives us hope in a hopeless situation.

It’s to This Name that “EVERY” knee will bow, “inevitably”,
this is That Name that has ultimately,
set us free,
free from the consequences of our sin and iniquity.

He’s The Lord of lord’s, King of kings,
joy deep down in one’s soul is what He bring,
and from that point it’s songs of thanksgiving that we sing.

It’s through the power of That Name that we are able to go straight to our Heavenly Father to plead our case,
He gave an invitation, saying: come to Me when you are wearied in your race.

At the mentioning of That Name satin himself will flee,
if you don’t believe me,
then taste for yourself and see.

The Lord “is” good,
His Name is Jesus and I promise, you will never again be the same,
once you call out, submit and surrender to;

That Name!!!

Philippians 3:13-14/Perpetual Press!!!

Philippians 3:13-14

13) Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before.
14) I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Perpetual Press!!!

Pressing toward the mark despite the failures of yesturday,
Knowing, that I am in God’s Hands being shaped and molded as a potter does his clay.

I am the Lord’s, and the Lord is mine,
when I miss the mark, even when I fall out of line.

For we, within and of ourselves can never apprehended,
but we can always cry out to our Heavenly Father in our weakness, and that “ALL SUFFICIENT GRACE”, He will surely send.

Only in the Blood of The Lamb “Jesus Christ” is our future guaranteed to shine brightly, and therein lies our hope,
so when the enemy whispers the devastating words in your ear (Your Defeated)  loudly say, NOPE.

Then cry out to our Lord, and say “YES”,
to this;

Perpetual Press!!!

I thank You my Lord for allowing me to see yet another Thanksgiving Day,
I thank You my Lord for bringing me to this point where I’m doing less of my own and more your way,
I thank You my Lord for your grace and mercy which covers me even when Your perfect “will” I don’t obey.

I thank You for the roof over my head,
I thank You for a nice warm bed,
I thank You for my faith being fully alive, not dead.

I thank You my Lord for the good times and my tribulations too,
I thank You my Lord for your faithfulness being ever so true,
I thank You my Lord for the power of Your Holy Spirit guiding and leading me through.

I thank You for all the wonderful people who unconditionally loves me,
I thank You for setting me free,
so that I too can love unconditionally.

I thank You my Lord for washing me and making me clean,
I thank You my Lord for “ALL” that You have done and for “ALL” that’s still unseen,
I thank You my Lord for this;
