Spend time with God, in Prayer & Meditation, Every Day (10.25.14)

Faith Believers,
Understand, satan’s goal is to keep people from GOD.
he attacks our thoughts with lies, temptation and guilt;
so we will doubt our salvation in Jesus.
he even steals our joy.
But he can never take away your salvation, because “the One
Who lives in you, is stronger than the one who is in the world."

The enemy of your soul will send all kind of people
and things into your life to destroy you.
Some people will come as Angels of light,
and you will know them by the fruit they bear.
Some you will recognize right away because
their spirit and demeanor will reek of satan.

Most of the time people do not have to open their mouth,
for the Lord will show you who they are through the things that they do.
That's why it is important to develop a relationship
with our Father and Savior, because the devil has come
to steal, kill and destroy whatever he can.
The only thing he will respect is the Word of GOD.

Spending time with the Lord each and everyday, in prayer
and meditation, is the only way to beat the enemy at his game.
The Lord will protect those who are faithful to Him, those who love Him.

Put satan under your feet, where he belongs, by rebuking him,
in the name of Jesus, each time he rears his ugly head.
Pray for those people that the enemy is using.
The workers of satan fail to realize that he has already been defeated
and he has no power to harm a child of GOD.

Stay in prayer, and believe that you are
going to recieve the victory over all your situations.

Thank GOD for what you have, trust GOD for what you need.

In the Solitude, We are Refined, Tried, Tested & Strengthened (10.24.14)

I have heard you My child, and I know where you are. 

I see all that you are going through. 
You are in a place of solitude. 

I have you in a place where you have never been before,
and for some of you, you're very uncomfortable. 
A place where no one knows or can discern your call;
or the purpose for what you are going through.  

Is it not I who have hidden you?
Is it not I who chose to put you in this place? 
Is it not I who controls your life?
Yes, and it is I who chose to hide my plan and purpose of this call
from those who surround you. 

Yes, no man will interfere with what I am doing in your life.  

You see My child, you were called, chosen and ordained
by Me, for My purpose. 
And in this place of solitude, this place of not understanding,
this place of feeling passed over - it will reveal how much you love Me. 
It is in this place that you are being refined.
It is in this place that your heart is being tried and tested,
to see if you will continue to serve Me or serve man.  

I want you to be strong My child, for I am with you. 
I want you to humble yourself before Me,
as I destroy the spirit of pride that exists in your life. 
I know, you did not know that it was there, but I did. 
And I want you to continue to draw nearer to Me, as I crucify your flesh.
And painful as it may be, it is a process that we cannot avoid. 

I say "we," because I will be with you until the end. 
Remember, I promised never to leave you, nor forsake you. 
Together, we will make it through.
And you will begin to confess over and over, even in your sleep,
“It is no longer I that live, but Christ that lives in me. Christ and I are one. 
Surely I have been crucified with Christ.”  


So once more I say to you, be strong and
be not discouraged while in this place that no man knows. 
But rejoice, for You are in My Perfect Will,
and I shall bring you forth in due season.

Know beyond the shadow of a doubt that I will never
leave you, nor forsake you.
I have you in My hands.

You have been found faithful and have touched My Heart;
you are My Child, and I KNOW WHERE YOU ARE.

Fear Not!! (10.23.14)

My Child,
Why do you fear? I have proven Myself over and over. 
The delay does not mean that your blessing has been denied. 
I am only giving you more time to pray, more time to minister before Me
and more time to seek My Face.

Cast that spirit which is troubling you, off of you, for it does not belong to Me.
I never gave you a spirit of fear.
I gave you a spirit of power, use it.
Stand strong, resist the enemy and he will flee.

Yes, I know you are under pressure, but remember, I Am always with you.
I will not allow the waters to overtake you.
They shall not overflow. When the heat is on, 
you will not be burned; neither shall flames come nigh thee.

Fear not, and command that which is troubling you, to leave.
Rise up in the authority which I have given you.
Know that I Am with thee.
Even when you are weak, I will be there to strengthen you.
I will keep you lifted with My hand of righteousness.

Fear not, My Child!
Fear not!
______

Isaiah 41:10 - Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy GOD: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Isaiah 43:2 - When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

2 Timothy 1:7 - For GOD hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Everything You are Going Through is Working Out for Your Good. Rejoice! (10.22.14)

We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed: We are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; Cast down, but not destroyed. - 2 Corinthians 4:8-9

Beloved,
Just as Paul suffered in his ministry, and I suffered in mine,
so shall you suffer in the walk you have chosen.
After all you have chosen to follow Me.
Yet, I want you to be just as faithful as
My servant Paul, he didn’t give up.
Trouble surrounded him many times,
but he knew at all times I could see him through.
Why?  Because, Paul knew that trouble doesn’t last forever.

I must allow you to suffer as My Father allowed Me to suffer.
I never said it was going to be easy, but I always promised
you that I would be with you.
Remember, I told you I would never forsake you,
nor leave you.  My Words are true.
I am always watching over you.

My prayer in the garden wasn’t just for Me,
it was for all of My sheep.
I cried out in the garden; I cried out to My Father three times.
It was there I told My Father, nevertheless. Say it with Me.
NEVERTHELESS. NEVERTHELESS.
That is your word, your breakthrough word, use it with My name.
My name is JESUS.

Now press your way through Beloved.
Each test has a purpose, and each test will make you
wiser and stronger. I want you to be more like Me.
Everything you are going through is working out for your good.
Yes, it hurts. I know you want to give up,
but you can’t, because trouble won't last forever.

Think it not strange when a fiery trial comes upon you,
as though some strange thing has happened. It isn’t strange.
Look at how My disciples suffered, and how they were changed.
Oh, look at how suffering changed Job. Rejoice!
Push your way through the storm. Rejoice I say rejoice!
Trouble won’t last forever.

Again, I know it’s hard, but you have to know that I am with you;
and guiding you through the storm.
Think of how bad it would be if I wasn’t with you,
in the midst of the storm, holding back the winds and the waves of the sea.

Stop looking at the situations and the circumstances
of this life, and focus on My glory. 
Yes focus on Me, because I am the only one
that can change your situation.

Lift your eyes up and look unto the hills
from whence cometh your help, because trouble won’t last always.

You should know, that at the end of the storm will be your blessing.
Yes, there is a Lily in the Valley,
and it is as bright as the MORNING STAR.
There is a ROSE OF SHARON springing up
in the midst of your desert,
because your breakthrough is HERE.
Your deliverance is HERE.

The time has come for you to be blessed. 

~ Prayer ~
Heavenly Father,
I am so grateful that trouble won’t last forever.
I know, that as long as I have You in my life,
I will always be victorious.

I am so grateful for your amazing Grace,
and even though things sometimes seem to be unstable,
I will rejoice in your Holy Name, in spite of.

I know you are with me because Your Word said,
You will never leave me nor forsake me.

Thank you Lord God for all trials,
because I know I will overcome them all,
in Your name.

I offer this prayer in Your Son Jesus' name,
Amen

Release Past Issues; Embrace a Life of New Season & New Changes (10.21.14)

My Child,
In this season, I am going to open many doors before you. 
But in order to embrace what I am about to open and reveal to you,
you must shut the doors of your past that have held you in bondage. 
Release those issues and people that have held you back for so long.

I have brought people and situations into your life for a reason.
The season has arrived where I will remove those things
that are not in line with My Will for your life.
So embrace the new change which is about to take place.
I have promised to bless those who love Me and obey My Word. 

Philippians 3:13-14 - 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, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of GOD in Christ Jesus.

Faith Believers,
I pray your day is blessed, 
Always thank GOD for what you have,
and trust GOD for what you need.

God Loves a Humble Heart (10.20.14)

If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. But if we confess our sins to Him, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness - I John 1:8-9

Imagine that a well-known preacher has just spoken at your church service. 
The preacher is wearing nice clothes and people are crowding around him
so they can shake his hand.  Then just a few feet away, you spot a criminal
who has recently been released from prison. He is poorly dressed,
smells worse than he looks, and no one wants to go near him or talk to him.

As the preacher talks to his admirers, you are surprised to hear him say things
 such as: “I am a really good person, because I preach really good messages
and never break any of GOD’s rules” - or - “People should follow my example.
I do not break the law, like that bad criminal over there.”

As you draw closer, you notice the criminal is crying.
He buries his face in his hands and falls to his knees.
He cries out to GOD and says, “Lord, please forgive me for all I have done!
I am a terrible sinner, and I need You to change my life.”

Who would you rather be like? The preacher who showed up
to GOD’s House bragging about his own goodness?
Or the humble criminal who knew he was unworthy,
and desperately needed GOD’s forgiveness?

Remember, “The sacrifices of GOD are a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart…” (See Psalm 51:17.)

GOD loves a humble heart.

If you want to repent, the first thing you must do
is recognize your sin. After you recognize your sin,
humbly confess your sin to GOD and agree with Him
about how serious it is.

The last step to repentance is to thank GOD for His forgiveness,
and ask Him for the Holy Spirit’s power to turn away from that sin.

• Confess your sins to GOD, so He will forgive and cleanse you.
• Give thanks to GOD for His forgiveness of your sins.
• Ask GOD to change your life so that it pleases Him.
• Ask GOD to humble your heart as you seek His forgiveness.
• Allow GOD and not sin to rule your life.

The Goal of Prayer is to Glorify God Our Father (10.19.14)

And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father - John 14:13

The goal of prayer is to get what we pray for, right? Wrong.
The goal of Christian prayer is to glorify the Father through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. GOD is glorified through the accomplishments of His will and the advancements of His Kingdom on earth. The Father is glorified by our obedience, spiritual growth and deepening relationship with Him.

Since we often ask for things outside of His Will, things that will not advance His Kingdom; we must develop our spiritual maturity and enrich our relationship with Him.  Unanswered prayer is a part of the normal Christian life. It is not an indication that GOD isn’t listening to us. Nevertheless, most of us persist in thinking, "there must be some way to get Him to give me what I ask."

More than a few are convinced that "things" such as: good works, offerings, vows, extreme discipline, praying at “holy” places, using blessing cloths, oil, icons, candles, persistence (repetition), and getting "large numbers to intercede" will incline GOD to listen to their prayers. Such ideas assume that there are "ways" to get “spiritual leverage” and apply “power” or “authority,” to facilitate receiving the answers that we “want.” There is no evidence in scripture that this is the case.

Does GOD lack, of course not.
Is He dependent on anything we might give, devote,
vow or sacrifice to and for Him? He is not.
The Bible says GOD doesn’t need anything 
we promise or give to Him. 

Is there any way we can obligate Him?
The Bible clearly says, we can never obligate, manipulate or control GOD. 
GOD controls all things and is all powerful!!! 

If you are praying for something and GOD has not answered,
it could be that what you are praying for is not His will for your life. 
Our Father know what is best for us.
For from him and through him and to him are all things: 
to whom be glory for ever. Amen - Romans 11:34-36, ESV
________
 
Awesome and Loving Father,
You don’t need anything I have to give, and yet,
You have promised to give me everything I need!
Your Word is clear, that all things are under Your control,
and that my prayers should always glorify You.

Help me to continually look for ways to bring pleasure to Your heart;
and to always be aware of  Your holy presence.

May my life be set upon the things that are upon Your heart,
attentive to whatever You call me to be
and to do in and for Your kingdom! 

In the name of Your Son Jesus,
Amen

It is a Faith Walk. Whatever We Confess is What We Shall Receive (10.17.14)

Faith Believers,
GOD’s method for us to receive His blessings is found in Joshua 1:8 - This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” In addition, in Mark 11:24, Jesus said, “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” 

In order to receive, we must believe and confess what we read. 
Our faith in GOD’s Word comes from hearing 
and hearing by the word of GOD. (See Romans 10:17.) 

GOD has already provided us with the key to receive what we desire from Him. 
However, if we don’t use the key, the door will never open. 
We will never have more than what we believe and confess. 
For with the heart, we believe; and with our mouth, 
confession is made unto salvation. (See Romans 10:10.) 
We can’t believe beyond what we are saying out loud. 
Our Lord and Savior operates on faith-filled words. 
Whatever we confess is what we shall receive, 
and if we choose to confess the wrong words, 
we are neglecting the faith we should have in the Lord.

You may find yourself saying, “I just can’t make up my mind,
whether I will confess His Word or anything else,
however nothing seems to be working.” 
Well, the Lord said in His Word that He knows you,
He knows your works, and He would rather you make a choice.
However, you don’t know if you want to be on fire
with His Living Word, or cold and dead.
That’s ok, because the Lord will decide for you.
He has said that because you are lukewarm and straddling the fence. 
He doesn’t want anything lukewarm in His mouth, 
therefore, He chooses to spit you out of His mouth. (See Revelations 3:15-16.)

Just as your negative confession will bring negative results, 
a neutral confession, which is not a confession at all, 
produces the same as a negative confession. 

GOD operates on Faith Words. 
If we want to experience the blessings of healing 
and the abundant life that Jesus hung, bled and died on the cross
to give us, then we must repent and renew ourselves
with the divine plan that GOD has established for us
to receive His blessings.
Now, we know what we should be doing; 
therefore, let us start confessing His Word out loud, daily.

One more thing, confessing His Word is not all that
we have to do to receive the blessings and benefits
that Jesus has already provided for us.
We must HOLD FAST TO OUR PROFESSION OF FAITH,
WITHOUT WAVERING, FOR HE IS FAITHFUL
THAT PROMISED. (See Hebrews 10:23.)
This means, when the blessings don’t come when we expect it;
we must not allow doubt to come into our heart and
cause us to speak flesh-filled, not spirit-filled words.

Remember, what you confess, is what you will possess;
and His Word said, “Ask in faith, nothing wavering.
Let not that person think that they shall receive anything of the Lord;
 for a double-minded, person is unstable” - James 1:6-8.
We confessed and believed in the Lord to receive salvation.
Therefore, let us confess and believe in the Lord
to receive His blessings. It’s a faith walk.

We must begin to speak what GOD has said concerning our life,
and allow Him to show us the power behind His Words;
so they will manifest in our life as reality.
Let us return and follow the plan the Lord has laid out for us, His Children.
After all, He left us with plans to prosper, to give us hope and a future.
(See Jeremiah 29:11.)

I don’t know about you, but I would rather have His plans, than mine.  

Bless & Be Blessed,
     Marilyn Chaney

Stand Firm on the Rock of Faith, Establish Your Heart & Just Believe (10.16.14)

Faith Believers,
Be reminded this day that JESUS IS OUR ROCK,
and let us STAND FIRM ON THE ROCK of our salvation.
Bless & Be Blessed,
     Marilyn Chaney

My Child,
I want you to rise above the circumstances that created a place of despair in your heart. Regardless of the attacks that have caused you to fear, I Am the Lord Your God.  And I Am still the Rock of your spiritual foundation. I Am holding you up, even when you feel you can’t even lift up your eyes.
I Will bring you through your current dilemma.

I Will give you wisdom, direction and I Will bring people 
into your life that will help you through this difficulty. 

Stand firm on the Rock of Faith and believe. 

I want you to have faith and stand, 
even when it seems that there is no place to stand. 
I want you to stand when the world seems
to be crumbling around you. 

Stand and rest in the assurance that I AM who I AM.

Take the time, in the days to come, to re-focus and 
turn your concentration - from 'stressing over what you feel you can’t do,'
to the victory that comes through obedience, to finally trusting in My Word.

Establish your heart in absolute faith and do not doubt.

Turn your heart towards the Rock and pray in faith for My intervention.
I will hear your cry.  And I will answer.
__________
 
Isaiah 65:24 - It shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer; and while they are still speaking, I will hear

Psalm 62:2 - He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.

I Will Lift Up Mine Eyes unto the Hills - Psalm 121:1 (10.15.14)

My Child,
You have seen others that are blessed beyond measure
in the natural, and you sit and wonder why not me?

Those same people being blessed in the natural,
are looking at others, wondering the same thing
about their spiritual blessing.

Remember, My rain falls on the unjust and the just.

Therefore, make every effort to keep yourself
set apart from jealousy and envy.
Please do not compare yourself with
what others possess or have attained.
Keep your eyes focused on Me,
and in due time you will reap in the natural
just as you have in the spiritual.

I want you to invest your time, money
and all that you are in Me.
My ways are not your ways,
however My ways are always what is best for you.

So, lift up your head to My hill, for I AM
where your help comes from, and I will
supply all that you need.
___________

Psalms 121:1-2 - I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.  My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth."

Matthew 5:45 - That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

Ephesians 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:
