His Words are better 

There are days the Lord takes me on a journey through His written Word. 

I don’t try to explain it, merely record it. 

Here is his sweetness from today. 

Be blessed 💖 May you hear what He has to say. 
For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace,

Romans 8:6 


Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.

Colossians 3:2 


And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

Romans 12:2 


No soldier in active service entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life, so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier.

2 Timothy 2:4 


Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life.

Proverbs 4:23 


Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord , my rock and my Redeemer.

Psalms 19:14 NASB


Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!

Philippians 4:4

Focus on the Good

Have you ever had a powerful week in the Lord and then BAM someone comes at you with hateful words? 

Words that run through your mind and even though you know those words are filled with anger and hate they still manage to take up residence within your mind and heart? 

This happened to me recently. As I lay in bed thinking about what was said about me, contemplating the truth to what was said. Because let’s face it, sometimes the truth can be delivered by those who dislike you. Also, why does it bother us so much if there isn’t a possibility of it being true. 

But God…  

And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, “Why are you thinking evil in your hearts?

Matthew 9:4 NASB

When you have God’s Word hidden in your heart He will speak truth over you. This is what He spoke to me while my mind and heart became obsessed and bitter. 

I’m aware of my ways. I’m aware of my enemies. And truth is so is Satan. He knows the thorns I have. He knows who to use and what they need to say to get my eyes distracted from God and on my flesh. 

But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, do not be arrogant and so lie against the truth. This wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, natural, demonic. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing.

James 3:14‭-‬16 NASB

Everything that comes from me dwelling on what was said is demonic. Period. This is why it’s so important that we continually check our thoughts. Submit them to Christ. Be on alert because the devil is always seeking to destroy that which is pure within. 

But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy.

James 3:17 NASB

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord , my rock and my Redeemer.

Psalms 19:14 NASB

Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life. Put away from you a deceitful mouth And put devious speech far from you.

Proverbs 4:23‭-‬24 NASB 

Friends, it’s important that we guard our thoughts, and what we speak over ourselves. 

The enemy is always accusing the Children of God. We must not agree with what is spoken in hate. These words are demonic. Do not entertain such words. Focus on what is true, honorable, worthy, peaceable and pure. These things are from your Father. 

Today I pray for you and I. I pray that we refuse to give the devil a foothold in our hearts and minds. That we guard them diligently and continually submit all thoughts to Christ and only allow His Words which bring peace take root within. 

And the seed whose fruit is righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

James 3:18 NASB

Blessed are the peacemakers

Matthew 7:15-20 NASB

“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.  You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they?  So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit.  A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit.  Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.  So then, you will know them by their fruits.

Proverbs 18:20-21 NASB

With the fruit of a man’s mouth his stomach will be satisfied; He will be satisfied with the product of his lips. Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.

Hebrews 13:15 NASB

Through Him then, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name.

1 John 4:1 NASB

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

John 6:63-64 NASB

It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life.  But there are some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who it was that would betray Him.

We test them by the words they speak.

James 3:18 NASB

And the seed whose fruit is righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

Ephesians 2:13-16 NASB

But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity.

Do their Words unite you to God? Remember God cannot be One with sin, therefore do their words free you from sin, or do they keep you believing yiu can never be free from sin? Understand that the flesh cannot please God, this is why we must be born of God and know that Jesus destroyed the flesh at the cross. We HAVE been crucified WITH Christ, it is NOW He who lives in us. Know who you truly are.

Matthew 5:9 NASB

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.

In this world you have tribulation, so where is peace?

Many believe as I once did that a life with God will be filled with ups and downs and good days and bad. But is this really true? Many times in scriptures we read that God will lead us to still waters, give us green pastures, protect us from harm, give us living water and the bread of life. He will make our paths straight, and not crooked. This morning I was given two scriptures to back up what I had left on a friends post on Facebook.

Here are the passages.

John 16:33 NASB

These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.

“In Jesus you have peace”
“In the world you have tribulation”
“Jesus has overcome the ‘world'” (hold on to that one for the next one)

1 John 5:18-19 NASB

We know that no one who is born of God sins; but He who was born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him. We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.

“The whole world lies in the power of the evil one” (Jesus has overcome the power of the evil one)
“Those born of God (have His Spirit in them) is kept by God and the evil one “does NOT” touch him”

So it seems to me that God rescues us from trouble of the world, and if we have trouble perhaps we aren’t in God but still in the world? Maybe the next time things are falling out from under us we ought to first ask ourselves am I still living in the world? It is hard to truly die to self and the world, but life with God isn’t hard.

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!

True Peace

Peace is Christ in US!

Ephesians 2:14-16 NASB

For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity.
John 14:25-27 NASB

“These things I have spoken to you while abiding with you.  But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.  Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.

Philippians 4:4-9 NASB

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.   Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

Beware of false prophets/ teachers!

Jeremiah 6:14 NASB

“They have healed the brokenness of My people superficially, Saying, ‘Peace, peace,’ But there is no peace.
