A "God's Faithful Servant" Prayer (1.31.15)

Faithful Father,
I thank You for the promise You have given to your children. 


I'm thrilled at the thought that one day, 
every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess
that Jesus Christ is Lord. 

Yet my responsibility is for today…
That the ends of the earth, and that every person, 
will hear the good news of Jesus - and obey. 

So today Father, allow me to share the good news 
of Jesus Christ with someone. 

I pray Father, that their heart will be receptive to your call. 
I pray Father, that they will realize that you are the only true GOD, 
and beside You, there is no other. 

Your Word said You wish that none should perish, 
so on this day, Heavenly Father, place someone in my path 
that I can witness to. 

Please show me the part You will have me to play, 
so that I can be a faithful servant for Your Kingdom, Lord. 

Thank You Lord, for all that You have done
in my life; and all that You are going to do. 


Amen

4 Vital Things to Know to Win the Spiritual War (1.29.15)

We are human, but we do not wage war as humans do. We use GOD’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing GOD. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ. - 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 

Have you ever felt defeated and weak in your faith? 
The Bible teaches that we are in a spiritual war. 

There are 4 vital things to know in order to win the spiritual war:
  1. The Battlefield is the Mind
    Our faith is based on GOD’s truth and promises. Doubt, guilt, and false teaching can weaken our faith. If we think the same way unbelievers do, it will keep us from knowing GOD. “....We must be transformed by the renewing of our minds” (Romans 12:2) In order to live a godly life, you must first have a personal relationship with Jesus.
     
  2. The Enemy is Satan
    “For we are not fighting against flesh and blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world,...” (Ephesians 6:12). People are not our enemies. Our enemies are the spiritual forces of Satan. Satan is real, and the Bible calls him “the ruler of this world of sin” (1 John 5:19), the “Father of Lies”, a murderer (John 8:44), and “the Accuser” (Revelation 12:9-10).

    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 can’t take away our salvation, but he can steal our joy and destroy our desire to tell others about Jesus. Because Jesus wants us to be united in love, Satan tries to divide us and set us against each other.
  3. Jesus has Won the Victory
    We are conquerors because Jesus defeated sin and death on the cross (Romans 8:31-39). Jesus sent us the Holy Spirit, a Helper who leads us in truth. (John 16:13). The Holy Spirit lives in us and gives us the power to have victory. “You had power over them because the One Who lives in you is stronger than the one who is in the world.” (1 John 4:4).
  4. We have Godly Weapons (Ephesians 6:10-18)
    GOD gives us spiritual weapons to use against our enemy. Spending time reading the word of GOD each day will strengthen us to prevail over the enemy.

Time To Move Forward & Move On (1.27.15)

My Child,
It is time to move forward. Do not delay in making the necessary changes that I have shown you. Each step that you fail to take, will cause you to lose your way, and to be out of step with Me.

Prepare your mind for action.

You know where I have called you to go, and now it is time that you begin to move out. Each delay will cause you to miss the opportunities that I have arranged for you and your door of opportunity.

So, please do not hesitate to take the first step in this new chapter of your life. Just as I have been with you in the past, I will continue to be with you. Therefore, let go of the things that are holding you back. Let them go.  You don’t need them anymore. What I have in store for you will be a huge blessing. However, you will miss it if you continue to look back, like Lot's wife did, and you know what looking back caused her. She lost everything, and I don’t want that to happen to you. 

I have gone before you to make a way for you to fulfill your destiny.

It’s time to leave the past behind you, for that is where it belongs… in the past. 

Put your  priorities in order and prepare to move as I direct you. There is much yet to do and there is no more time to procrastinate. Focus on what lies ahead and do not worry about the future. I am your future. I have everything in My Hands, so please, be obedient to My Word. 

Listen for My voice and move when I say move, 
then you will receive the blessings that I have planned for you.

MEDITATE ON MY WORD:


Deuteronomy 2:3 - You've been traveling around this hill country long enough; turn north.

Isaiah 30:21 - And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left. 

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.

Realizing God is the Answer to All My Needs (1.26.15)

Faith Believers,
I realized that GOD is the Answer to every one of my needs! 
Every one of them! 

GOD has shown me that I must trust, praise and worship Him. This was so hard when my heart was hurting and needing answers immediately! I learned that as I praised Him and acknowledged Him (out loud) for Who He Is, my confidence grew in Him.
Today, I know that every time I am confronted with a situation that overwhelms me - I must first lay all of my burden at the feet of Jesus, I must take my hands off the situation and take time to praise and worship GOD!  

I sit in my chair, put on some worship music, read from the Word or just speak out words of Praise to my Father. If I am at work and become overwhelmed, I take a little walk or go to the restroom and speak words of trust and praise to my JEHOVAH.

You see beloved, when we pray to the Father, opposition will come against us. That opposition is the enemy. When you Praise the Father, acknowledging Who He Is, the demons have to flee! They can't stand our Worship of Jesus or the Father! So when you praise and worship GOD, you will run the demons off. 

Remember, nothing is impossible with GOD!

Now is the time to pray and call upon our Father, believing that He is fully capable of answering your every need.  Oh, how GOD loves to answer the believing and trusting heart!

God's Timing (1.25.15)

My Child,
My Word is a light unto your path and I will guide you every step of the way; but oftentimes, you want a floodlight to make the entire journey clear. If you knew everything that was ahead, you would be too afraid to step out in faith to reach your blessings. I AM the great I AM, and I know that if I show you one step at a time, you will build up the faith to overcome each step. Even though I have many good things planned for you, each one must come in the correct timing.  My timing.

Showing you too much, might tempt you to get ahead of My plans, and I don’t want you to be out of My Will for your life. Please do not think that I am withholding anything from you.  For I know your journey and I know how much you can handle. Trust in My timing to reveal your next step and to provide your provisions. Therefore, do not be discouraged just because the entire picture is not clear. Rather rejoice!  Because each step makes you stronger, wiser and equips you for something greater.

Be patient, rest in Me this day.
So you can be ready for the next step.

I’ve spoken to you. Meditate on My Word, and let Me know you are listening
Psalm 119:105 - Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

Psalm 32:8 - I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye

Psalm 139:3 - Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.

Remember..... (1.23.15)

My Child,
REMEMBER when you walked with Me in faith and not fear? 

Let Me take you back to the beginning, lest you forget the way it was, the way it has been, and the way that it will be. For in the beginning there was darkness, and My Spirit hovered over the places of the deep and spoke light. I AM the one who breathed life into this world. REMEMBER that I AM the one who took nothing, and made it into something. REMEMBER.

REMEMBER I AM He who sees a barren womb and speaks life. 
I AM He who sees sickness and speaks health. 
I AM He who opens the eyes of the blind. 
I AM He who causes the lame to walk, 
and I AM He who sees a closed door and can open it. 
You see there is no task too small or too unimportant to Me. I AM the One who holds your future in My hands. I AM the creator of all things. REMEMBER.

REMEMBER I told you, 'let not your heart be troubled neither let it be afraid.'  REMEMBER I told you to fear not, for I have not given you a spirit of fear, but one of power, of love and of a sound mind. I said in all things come to Me. In all things, take time to pray. I hear the prayers that you whisper, the prayers that you sing, I even hear the prayers that you weep. 

Oh yes, I do hear. 
REMEMBER

REMEMBER the promises I made. They are YES and AMEN.
Why have you forgotten them so soon?

Why have you allowed fear to hold your hand and lead you into this place of fearfulness? And why, My child, are you walking by sight, instead of by faith? It is time to REMEMBER faith. Lift your head to the hills from whence cometh your help, and fill your heart and your mouth with My Words. REMEMBER.

REMEMBER how you walked with Me in faith before?
Now walk with Me again.

I want you to leave fear behind you, and walk the path that I chose for you, the faith path. Do not turn to the left, nor to the right, but stay on the straight and narrow path. And as you walk, you will hear My voice behind you saying, "This is the way, walk ye in it." Yes, I know it is narrow, but this is the path of Faith, and it will bring you truth and life.

Once more, REMEMBER.  

REMEMBER that I have promised to supply all your needs according to My riches in Glory. Not some, but all, of your needs. Now come to Me just as you are: tired, weary and heavy-laden. Come to Me and ask, and I will not withhold any good thing from you. I will not turn you away, I will hold you and comfort you. Come now, into My arms, and you will find peace, you will find rest, and please REMEMBER "I am the GREAT I AM and there is no other."

All power has been given to you from GOD your Father!
REMEMBER.

Turn Your Worries Over to God. Right Now. (1.22.15)

My Child,
Do not fear the mountains that you see looming ahead. 
Do not fear what is to come in the future, 
nor what awaits you at the horizon, but focus on me. 
Right now, as you look ahead, you are probably thinking,
"Oh no, another set of mountains to climb... I wonder what is going to happen.?"

Beloved, do not give in to worry. Worry is something designed to pull you down. Plus it really is something you don't have to be concerned with, because worry wants you to panic about things that have not even manifested yet. Take one step at a time and trust in My Son, Jesus.

Focus on the path that you are on right now. 
Trust Me and let Me direct each of your steps. 
The only foresight I want you to have,
is the fact that whatever lies ahead for you, is part of my plan!
I want you to stand on My Word and trust in Me completely.

So turn your worries over to Me.  Right now.  
Do not worry about what is to come, 
because I have promised you a future 
of hope and of much blessing. 

Focus on what is important right here and right now;
and give your whole heart to the task at hand, 
says the Lord.

Stretch Yourself & Ask in Faith - for This is Your Time, This is Your Season, Start Expecting. (1.21.15)

Faith Believers,
No matter what you are going through right now, expect to see the impossible begin to manifest in your life, in your ministry, in your businesses.  For GOD desires to do exceeding abundantly, above all you could ever ask of Him, above all you could ever even think!  Do you hear that?  He desires to do more than we can even think about!!!  

GOD is an awesome GOD!!!!

Can you dream the impossible?  Well, stretch yourself in faith, stretch yourself in vision and stretch out on the promises of GOD; for whatever you have in your heart to do for the Kingdom of GOD, He has something much greater in mind for you. 

Oh, but there’s something we must do to receive this.  We must ask in faith, believing that we have received what we've asked of the Lord.  Ask, and do not doubt.  Ask, and do not waver.  Ask, and just believe. 

GOD is calling us to a higher level of expectancy in everything we do.  
Settle for nothing less than the power of GOD in every area of your life.  

I believe the Lord is trying to tell us something.
   - Marilyn

Hear what the Lord Our God says:


My Child,
Expect to see the things that you haven't been able to shake or move,
to get out of your way as you speak the word of faith. 

Faith is the key to the supernatural.

With faith you can go to the throne in confidence and boldness,
requesting whatever you need, and knowing you have received it. 
For it is My desire to bless you with all you need.

As you make My Word the ultimate authority and final say in your life,
expect My promised blessings to overtake you. 
Expect ministries that have been 'un-heard of' to emerge with signs and wonders.
Expect circumstances that looked impossible to turn around quickly. 
Expect a turnaround in your finances. 
Expect your prophetic destiny to manifest.  

Expect miraculous healings like never before.  
This is your time, this is your season,
start expecting.

Meditation on God's Word:

Deuteronomy 28:2 - And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy GOD.

Galatians 3:20-21 - Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever.  Amen

James 1:6-7 - But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.  For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
