A wife, yet lonely 

Today my heart is for the lonely wife. The one who is seen and not heard. Who has become misunderstood and feels isolated. Unsafe. Unloved. My Spirit prays for YOU. I leave these words in hopes that you will know that you are SEEN & HEARD, LOVED, SECURE & SAFE. NOT FORGOTTEN OR OVER LOOKED. 

But now, thus says the Lord , your Creator, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel, “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine! “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, Nor will the flame burn you. “For I am the Lord your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I have given Egypt as your ransom, Cush and Seba in your place. “Since you are precious in My sight, Since you are honored and I love you, I will give other men in your place and other peoples in exchange for your life. “Do not fear, for I am with you; I will bring your offspring from the east, And gather you from the west.

Isaiah 43:1‭-‬5 NASB

Fear not, for you will not be put to shame; And do not feel humiliated, for you will not be disgraced; But you will forget the shame of your youth, And the reproach of your widowhood you will remember no more. “For your husband is your Maker, Whose name is the Lord of hosts; And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel, Who is called the God of all the earth.

Isaiah 54:4‭-‬5 NASB

I leave these with you in hopes they bring you comfort in knowing you are deeply loved by your Heavenly Husband. He guards you, guides you, hears you, keeps you safe. 

And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what had been spoken to her by the Lord.”

Luke 1:45 NAS

Sharing is caring 

Simon, Simon, behold, Satan has demanded permission to sift you like wheat;  but I have prayed for you, that your faith may not fail; and you, when once you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.”

Luke 22:31‭-‬32 NASB

I was given this text days ago and wasn’t sure the message He wanted me to share behind it until just now. 

Last night I felt led to share some of the trials that my husband and I are currently (see here) in. As I was writing I knew this would bless others as well as honor God with what He’s doing in our lives. 

God is good. Always. He is working ALL things for GOOD, for those who love Him and are called for His purpose (paraphrase Romans 8:28). 

My marriage has absolutely been through a season of sifting and after reading about how they sifted wheat in the old days I couldn’t be more positive that this passage is genuinely what we’ve been going through. And if I am to be His Light and Shine His love to others lost in the darkness then I’ve got to get real when I’m knee deep in the muck and mire. 

Not in anger or pain but in gratitude that no matter what this flesh tries to bind me to my eyes and heart are always going to refocus and get back on my God. And because of that I TRUST in HIM and HIS promises. So I share. I share so others lost in the muck see that they too can find their hope in Christ, even though it seems they may have failed Him. 

Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

Matthew 5:16 NASB

If you are currently in the muck know that I have prayed for you to focus your eyes back on your Father. Focus your heart back on Him who Loves you. 

God is Good. Always. Trust Him. You have not been forsaken. 

Who do you really believe?

Romans 8:5-8 NASB

For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so,  and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

Do you believe this? Because what I constantly see being taught and encouraged is a way for us to FEEL better in the flesh. I’m truly so sick of seeing these teachings that only make you feel better. Enough already! Stop feeding the flesh and release these people that follow YOU from their flesh. Teach them about freedom from sin, teach them about their DEATH that has already took place IN Christ. Teach Them the TRUTH that they (and possibly you) have been believing a lie, and the liar. You haven’t been walking by faith that your flesh is dead. You believe you and everyone else is powerless to defeat sin. And by this belief you yourself are feeding others poisoned food. Jesus Christ released us from the death that is associated with this tent we call a body. He has nailed every single sin EVER to the cross and calls us into HIMSELF. Holiness, perfection, blamelessness. I beg you to let go of this life and every thing you think is good…..believe in the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ our Lord and use your gift to free these people who follow YOU. But it’ll only happen if you actually admit you don’t believe and ask for help for YOUR unbelief. May their eyes be open Father God.

Prayer for broken hearts

Heavenly Father,

I am praying for the women out there today that have brokeness in their hearts. Lord they’re doing everything they’ve been told to do, they go to church, they tithe, they read devotionals, they pray, and yet they’re still unable to be free from this pain inside of them. Father they need you. The traditions of men have let them down. Lord Jesus they need YOU to be their guide, they need you to show them where you are. Speak to those who you have chosen Lord Jesus, wake them up from the slumber they have fallen into. Guide those whose hearts are pure and truly desire YOU. You heal the brokenhearted; today Father, will you awaken all those who read this prayer? Will you guide them to your scriptures and give them eyes to see YOU clearly. Thank you Daddy for knowing me and showing me the Way Home! I love you and I praise you!

Are you perfect?

Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. Matthew 5:48

That’s a text we don’t usually hear preached in services. Yet it still remains to be in the Bible and if we claim to follow Jesus and all that He tells us to do then I have to wonder why this is a text that so many fear quoting. Perhaps they figure if they don’t teach on it then they can be free to not follow it. Many people who have taught me in the past definitely do not believe it’s possible to even do. They always say “Only Jesus is perfect.” And they are partially correct. Jesus is perfect, and so are we, when we come to believe that He removed ALL of our transgressions, taken them out of our way nailing them to the cross.

If a tree had fallen in the road this would cause me to be unable to cross the road. If the tree were taken out of my way then I would be free to cross the road. So why is it when we read Colossians 2:13,14 we don’t believe that Jesus actually did this for us?

I’m going to venture to explain why I didn’t believe this for so long. There are several excuses. One was because no one else taught that, and when I finally saw through the eyes of the Spirit that we are indeed FREE from sin, those who were in the church longer than me repeatedly told me that I would always sin, that we would never be perfect. Quoting Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,. What they haven’t been taught, so they quote it as they have been quoted to, is that this passage is describing how there is no distinction between who receives the justification through their Faith. If you continue to verse 24 it says: being justified as a gift by His grace through redemption which is in Christ Jesus. Justified means to be acquitted, to be declared innocent, guiltless.

The key for this justification to take place is hidden in verse 22 ‘for those who believe, again not how verse 23 is ever quoted. I ask that you take the time to read Romans 3 today on your own asking the Holy Spirit of God to reveal to you the TRUE meaning as the what is written. This requires you to throw away everything, including this post, you have ever heard before. Go to it with no preconceived notions and simply allow God to speak to you. He is calling out His children. It is time for the Sons of God to be revealed.

Galatians 3:26,27 says For you are all sons of God through your faith in Christ Jesus. For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothes yourselves with Christ. If I have faith that Jesus took ALL of my transgressions, sins, out of my way then I an FREE to live without the fear of SIN. Why? Well because perfect LOVE casts out fear because fear means punishment, and I am free from ever being punished because there is no condemnation for those who are IN Christ Jesus, Romans 8:1 . I am a Daughter of God, and this means I am blameless before my Lord through the blood of Jesus Christ. He died once for ALL, when He returns He will not be removing sins again. He already did that. Our only requirement in this life is to BELIEVE IN THE ONE WHOM HE SENT. John 6:29

I know this is hard to believe that you can indeed live life perfect as Jesus, free from sin. That is why we require FAITH. Our eyes tell us we are still the same flesh, yet by FAITH we know that we have indeed died when Christ died, and through Gods Spirit are we raised to life. Romans 8:9-11 (read Romans 8)

So I leave you with a challenge. I challenge you to throw away everything you have ever learned, at least for today. Open your bible to the texts that I have suggested and ask God to reveal to you if indeed Jesus did take ALL your sins from you. To reveal to you the lies that you have believed that have kept you in bondage that you are unable to live a life without sin. Friends our God is a GOOD God, Jesus died ONCE, do not ask Him to die again because you don’t believe that His blood was enough. Be Free from sin. Be perfect as our Father in Heaven is perfect.

Do you know who you are?

When I began to listen to the Spirit all I kept hearing and seeing was “Know who I (God) say you are” or “Know your identity in Christ.” So I began searching the Scriptures to see who God says that I am. And want to know what I have discovered?

The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him. Romans 8:16,17

9 But you are A CHOSEN RACE, A royal PRIESTHOOD, A HOLY NATION, A PEOPLE FOR God’s OWN POSSESSION, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light ; 10 for you once were NOT A PEOPLE, but now you are THE PEOPLE OF GOD ; you had NOT RECEIVED MERCY, but now you have RECEIVED MERCY. 1 Peter 2:9,10

6 I said, “You are gods, And all of you are sons of the Most High. Psalms 82:6

This last one is the one that really causes me to pull back…that is until I read:

17 “For the LORD your God is the God of gods and the Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God who does not show partiality nor take a bribe. Deuteronomy 10:17
Could this be true, that He is talking about US? Well here in Revelations I read:
16 And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” Revelations 19:16
And we all know that Jesus is in fact OUR King, and in Peter we read that we are Kings….so then let me ask you, do you believe this?
 
My post is short…for now….because I want to leave you with these scriptures, and challenge you to search them as well, asking the Spirit of God to grant you Wisdom and Understanding, and I beg of you to believe the TRUTH before your eyes, friends you and I are Royalty from the Most High God. Deeply Loved and cherished, marked off before the Creation of the Heavens and Earth. I love you!

Prune the lies, bring me the TRUTH!

image

“I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit; He ‘prunes it so that it may bear more fruit.” John 15:1,2

At the end of Luke 12 Jesus says ” From everyone whom much is given, much will be required; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more.”

I have always taken the first verse as a comforting verse when I lose yet again another friend who promises to always be there. But today I read this, as many teachers have been receiving this Word as well. The pruning I believe He is speaking to me this time around is the pruning of bad teaching. The pruning of well meaning encouraging words given by well meaning teachers that too many people take as truth.

This morning I read a statement on a marriage thread that says a husband and wife should be permitted to complain to one another. (paraphrase) Immediately I heard within my heart, where God has placed His truth. Do everything without complaining. So I do what I normally do, get my bible app out and get the verse then copy and paste. Address that this is a well meaning saying but to be careful the advice you take because Scripture says: Do not complain, brethren, against one another, so that you yourselves may not be judged; behold, the judge is standing right at the door. James 5:9 and Phillipians 2:14-16

Now I have not yet attain this truth, but this does not make it any less true. It IS attainable because it is spoken to those whom the Holy Spirit of God reside. And we can do ALL things through Christ who gives us strength.

How about you, do you give advice that is well meaning but totally NOT from the Word of God. We need to be careful friends, we could be meaning to comfort another, yet we dig a ditch for them and ourselves. We are to be perfect as our Father in Heaven is perfect. We CAN attain this because GOD lives IN us, if indeed Christ is in you.

So why then do we do this? I think we are fearful of believing what is written above, Be perfect as Our Father is perfect. That word perfect scares us. But here is the beautiful truth. It’s attainable for me and for you! God said so and He is not a liar, nor did HE tell us to do things that are not possible, with HIM. There is the KEY, do you believe that GOD lives IN you? Then friends this is possible, we have to PRUNE the lies we have allowed to keep us with blame and blemish and come to the Father and confess we have been believing man over HIM, that we are weak without HIS PRESENCE guiding our every thought and action. Thank Him for forgiving us for all of those sins, and for loving us so deeply. Ask God to remove the dead branches from your thinking and allow Him to teach you mighty things we do not know.

you will be glad you did….but remember we must acknowledge that there is more to know about God, and we must be humble to receive the truth, even if the one bringing it is someone whom we think we are better than. (heart check my friends)

Sons and Daughters, no longer slaves

image

This morning I felt the urge to write. I have so much information coming in that I have to pour it out so that I can continue to have more poured in. So I asked my Papa where to read, to make this as simple as possible. More of your Word and less of mine. This is where He led me: Galatians 4 Sonship of Christ Paul is talking about how even before Christ came they were sons, but were children in their knowing so they appeared to others and themselves as slaves. Then Christ came being born under the law and those who believed would gain their adoption as sons. Now this has been taught that we were never sons and daughters but have been adopted, but that’s NOT what this text says. Verse 3 says “So also we, while we were children, were held in bondage (lies) under the elemental things of the world (law). This adoption is into the Body of Christ, not to be adopted as a child, we were already sons but lacked maturity of the knowledge of who they truly were.

But what I am pressed to write about isn’t about them, it’s about US. You and I. Paul tells us in verse 6: Because you ARE sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” 7) THEREFORE you are NO longer a slave, but a SON; and if a SON, then an heir through God.

I ask that you read this passage, I am reading from the NASB version, pray and ask that God reveal His truth to you about your TRUE identity. We all CLAIM that we agree we are Sons and Daughters but the reality is we are behaving as slaves. We are not slaves, we are Sons and Daughters and co-heirs with Christ through God. We are the manifestation of the living God, if we believe we are. But so few do. So they are trapped by the elementals of this world.

Praying for you and I to truly begin to walk out in the reality of who we are. We are FREE from SIN. We do not have to be slaves to it. We have the SPIRIT OF JESUS IN US. HE is GREATER than anything this WORLD will ever be.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!! May we reflect on ALL Christ has done and IS doing in and through us. Today may we meditate on the power that lies within us, who has given us this power and what He wants to do through us. We are Vessels of the Most High God. I pray blessings over each and every one reading this, in the Most High Name! Today I pray your mind be free from the restrictions of this world and you allow the Spirit of God to explode within and your dreams become attainable. I pray that you begin to see that this life is but a dream, that you are able to identify more and more the Hand of God so that your able to break free from the chains that bind you. That you dig deeper into your Bible that God gives you more and more Revelations that you begin to read the Book of Revelations and see the depths of what this book holds. I pray that you’re so on Fire for the Lord that others flock to you like a moth to a light. Bc that is what you are, you are the Light of Christ in a dark world surrounded by moths. Shine so brightly and save those who are trapped in darkness. I ask all of this for you and for me and for all who are far off. I love you from the depths of my being and trust that you will find the truth within.
