Bad day at the well….hello world


Have you ever had a bad day?  Or a worse day? How about a bad week, or bad month? 

I have been having a bad day at the well for over a month and don’t know why?  I prayed about it. Today, I read my bible and sought the Lord for a reason to what is going on, but I have had no answers. 

Today, I decided it is just a season of drought. You know, where the rain doesn’t fall for weeks on end. 

Today I went to the well and let down the bucket to see if the water level was high or low. I wanted a cold drink of water, not a tepid or cool drink.  Today, I needed a icy cold, teeth chattering drink from the well. I wanted to meet with Jesus and receive a new revelation. I wanted  relief from the drought.

I have been writing a book and I wondered if the time the book takes me away from spending time with the Lord is causing the drought. A few minutes ago, when I ask the Lord, He gave me this answer:

Nothing takes you away from me. I AM in your heart and where ever you are I AM.  Whatever you are doing, I AM doing it with you. My holiness demands a separation from sin and evil. I do not partake in the sin and evil of this world. I AM silent when sin or evil is working in your flesh. When you repent of the sin you commit,  My love will rescue you. My children do not recognize the sin they commit sometimes because it is so easy to slip into something without recognizing what you are slipping into. In your case, My Child, you have neglected your prayer time and your reading time and your worship time with Me. In this neglect, you have slipped back into flesh-working out problems, instead of Spirit-led working out of your problems. Your tongue has flapped more with deceit than you care to admit. Repent and run quickly to My arms. I will deliver and rescue and put you back on the path I sat you on in the fist place. You have left your first love and I desire you back in My arms.

Lord, I repent and I run to you. Thank you for showing me my sin. Thank you for directing my path into your arms. Thank you for rescuing me and setting my feet on the narrow path and thank you for loving me.  I am over  my bad day at the well.  The water is COLD!  I am HOT!

Amen

Without Spot….hello world


How do you see yourself each day when you get up and look in the mirror? Do you see  someone who is laden with temptations of your old life? Some one who is  burdened with the battle of the bulge, some one who gets angry when people act dumb and stupid in your presence and what you really want to do is haul off and slap the stupid out of them?

Guess what?  God knows exactly how you feel, but He does not want you to act upon your impulses. He wants you to act like His Son Jesus and respond with His will and Word on the subject.

If you do fall off the wagon and hit the floor with a scream, Father will actually pick you up, dust you off and put  you back in the wagon along the path He has set for your life.  All He ask, is that you ask Him to forgive you and actually mean it.  Do you know that when He looks at you, He does not see you. He sees Jesus. Remember that time you said, “Father, forgive me of my sin.”  He took you for your word and did that. He let you exchange your sin for Christ’s One righteousness and you became the One He sees when He looks at you.  It is no longer you but Christ payment for your sin that He sees.

You are without spot before the Father if Christ has taken your sin and you have received His righteousness.  Simple exchange.

Does that make me free to sin?  Heaven forbid!  It makes Father free to keep you in the center of His will even though you don’t deserve to be kept. Sin should have no place in your life because He has given you power over sin and you don’t have to sin. 

Sin is now a choice. If you willfully sin after Christ has taken your sin, you have no more sacrifice for sin and it falls squarely on your shoulders.  Remember that ole saying, “what goes around, comes around.”  

Be careful to walk in righteousness, trust God for cleansing daily and seek first the kingdom… You don’t want to be caught  in the ‘comes around.’

 

Wonderful Made in His Image…hello world


Hi My Beloved Friend and Family:

I have a word of encouragement for you today.  Did you know that before the earth was formed that Abba Father knew you and me.  Even before the universe came into existence, Abba loved us.  Did you know that He has wonderfully made us in His image?

Did you know that He put all things in place and knit you into your mama’s womb and with a loving breath into your soul, He gave you direction.  He told your eyes to be colorful, He told your nose to grow beautifully, He gave you lips to whisper His name, He gave you intelligence to know Him personally when you grew  up.  He gave you His love, His Son, His peace and whispered gently into your tiny ear, “you are mine and you can choose Me when you grow up —- I will be thinking about you all the time, I will send angles to watch over you daily, I will watch you while you sleep and when you wake, I will be there waiting for you to notice Me. I will never forget about you even if you forget about Me.  I will stand quietly waiting for you to come to Me to receive My free gift.  I AM eagerly waiting for your call, inviting Me in, My Child.”

Abba Father, thank you for watching over us and loving us and being there.  I am so glad that you have heard my call and have written my name in Your “Lamb’s Book of Life.”     How about you?

Dreams….hello world


Dreams are important.  Some dreams are more important than others.  Some of my dreams have brought me wisdom and understanding of something that was going on in my life that I needed some clarity on.  Some dreams are just the product of the pizza snack just before bedtime. 

However, some dreams stay on and linger in your mind and won’t let you go. These dreams are the ones I think you should pay attention to.  I just had one of those dreams lately and it won’t let me go. 

Father hears my prayers and I know He desires the best in life for me.  I desire to know Him better and better each day as life goes on and I give Him my hopes and dreams and the longing to live a meaningful life here and now.  I ask Him to help me fulfill the purpose for my life that He has laid out for me and not to let me forget that it is He that has called me and will provide me with strength and ability to perform that for which He has called me too.

I have said more than once that  we need to see what God is doing and get in there and do it with Him.  We should not just jump ahead and run head long into a project we devise.  When God says come and join me and let’s enjoy this moment together, we should just DO IT.  We need to run into His arms and explore all the possibilities He provides for us to experience and know that He will keep us safe in them.

We should not just seize the day, but seize hold of Father and run hand in hand with Him where-so-ever He takes us – the dream will become an adventure and He will lead us beside still waters to the table set before our enemies in His presence.   Sin will stay far from us if we will just stay close to His Father heart.

Lord, help us to use our time wisely and to pursue you for our daily bread!

Mission Impossible??…hello world


Do you feel like your life is a mission impossible?   Are you under attack from all sides?  Have you thought about giving up and charting a new course down another road?   

Well,  STOP and let’s regroup, get our armour re-polished and straight, find our knee pads and come together as the army of God and pray without ceasing so we can find strength to keep on keeping on……Remember who your Commander-in-Chief is. . . . . . the Head-of-the-Family is calling all His Children to the front of the battle because the Battle is His to fight. He will go before us and He will lead us into VICTORY.

Do you remember the story of the wall around Jerusalem that had been broken down and burned and the stones were heavy, the work tiring, the enemies were not happy the people were returning to rebuild the wall and their lives?? The enemy will do everything possible to stop the work of the Lord from being done in the days we live in.

Today is no different from those days, loved One.  Today seems like ‘mission impossible’ to us because we are about the Lord’s Work.  Time is short and the enemy is fighting us tooth and nail to stop souls from leaving the kingdom of darkness and moving into the kingdom of light.  Nehemiah had to work with one hand, pray and watch and build with the other hand.  Don’t be discouraged, when you are about the Lord’s Work, He will help you accomplish what He has called you to build.  (DO)..

God does not fail.  He will accomplish the work in you and with your help the work ‘out there’ that needs to be done.  Souls are coming into the Kingdom daily and as we speak out the Word of light, He opens the door, whispers the ‘key’ to the kingdom into the ears of those who have ears to hear what the Spirit says to them……  Your job is to keep whispering…. “Jesus is the answer to all your questions.”

Mission Impossible?    No, Beloved Child of God….The mission has been won, I read the last chapter ——–  WE WIN!

Chosen…..hello world


God’s people must clothe themselves as His own picked representatives, His chosen  ones who should be purified and holy and well-beloved by God by putting on behavior marked by tender-hearted pity and mercy, kind feeling, gentle ways and patience— which is tireless, long-suffering and take  power to endure whatever comes, with good temper.  We are to be gentle and forbearing with each other and if  we  have a difference against each other; readily pardoning each other; even as the Lord has freely forgiven us, so should we also forgive.

As the people of God we must put on love and enfold ourselves with the bond of perfectness —-which will bind us together in ideal harmony.  We are to let the peace from the Lord act as umpire continually in our hearts.  We need to be thankful, appreciative and give thanks and praise to the Lord daily.. 

As the body of Christ  we should let the Word spoken by Christ the Messiah have its home in our hearts and minds and dwell in us  in all richness, as we tech admonish and train each other in all insight, intelligence,  and wisdom in spiritual songs making melody to God our Father with grace in our hearts.  Everything we do  in word or deed we should do everything in the name of the Lord and in dependence upon His person giving praise to Father through Him.

Let us be example in this world that show the glory of God, the peace of God as we pray.

Heart’s Desire…hello world


What is your heart’s desire?   If you could ask for and received your most intimate desire, what would you ask for?   Would it be money to travel,  live anywhere in the world like Hawaii for the winter and Colorado for the summer?

Would you ask for houses, boats, cars and trains?   Maids to do your house cleaning, butlers to open your doors, pool-boys to clean your pool in the house of your dreams?  Would you ask for patience, peace and property, health and wealth? 

I thought about it one day for a long time and I decided I would ask for wisdom. Solomon asked for wisdom and it pleased God.   God gave him wisdom and to wisdom, God added to him to be the riches man ever to live.

I would pray in the getting of wisdom from God that I would use it wisely and not turn to the riches and  become a despot.  I would pray that God would keep me on the path He set down before me and that I would come to the end of my life with love as the primary thing, able to give unto others as He has given unto me.  

Because God is the source of wisdom, using wisdom make God  and me partners in the life I live before Him and others. I pray that He and I would partnership to a long and health relationship with each other and all that we come in contact with and no matter what He called me to do I would do it for His glory and honor and we would walk side by side till I walk on home to be with Him in His house.

All Have Sinned….hello world


What does the word ALL mean?  

The American Heritage Dictionary of English Words says it means:    1. the total entity or extent of  2.the entire or total number   3. the utmost possible   4. every  5.  any whatsoever  6.nothing but  ….

Well then, ALL  must mean everybody, good people, bad people, red, yellow, white and black people, the whole number of in totality have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.   That being true;  when you sin – it really does not make sense for you to try to hide from God what you have done, are doing or even what you are going to do.  God sees all, knows all and also knows what happened in the past, what is happening right now, and what is going to happen in the future.

THAT being true, would it not make sense to just tell God exactly what you are feeling and what you think about it and open the door and admit your part in it and let Him start the process of forgiveness so your slate does not get overcome with more than you can handle?  Do you remember when Adam and Eve sinned and hid themselves from God?   Were they really hidden?  Of course not, God knew exactly where they were, but He asked them anyway, just to see it they knew where they were;

“Where art thou?”  God asked.

“I heard your voice in the garden, I was afraid, I was naked, I hid myself,” the man answered.

Then, like many of us, he puts the blame on someone else……the woman, you gave me, she gave me and I did……   He put the blame on 1. the woman, 2. God, 3. the woman, before he admitted he did anything.

The woman didn’t do much better:  she blames the serpent and then admits what she did.  She didn’t blame God or Adam, but she did blame the serpent before she admits what she did.

I am a very wondering person and I wonder what would have happened if when God asked Adam, ‘ Where art thou?’ if Adam had said, “Here Lord, hiding from your view because I have done that which you bid me not do. I repent, cleanse me O Lord and renew in me a right heart!”     What do you think God would have done?  

Quick to repent or quick to blame others?    All have sinned and come short of the glory of God……

End of Era….Hello World


Word of the Lord to His People:

If My people who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.        Now mine eyes shall be open and mine ears attend unto the prayer that is made in this place.  Now,  therefore, make confession unto Me, your Lord, and do My pleasure, and separate yourselves from the Peoples of the land and from strange wives.  Be not unequally yoked together with unbelievers for what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness and what communion has light with darkness?  and what concord has Christ with Belial or what part has he that believes with an infidel?  and what agreement has the temple of God with idols?  for you are the temple of the living God; as God has said, I will dwell in them and walk in them and I will be their God and they shall be My people.      Wherefore,  COME OUT from among them and be you separate, says the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing and I will receive you!……and  will be a Father unto you and you shall be My Sons and Daughters, say the Lord Almighty!

He is Risen! ….hello world


He is Risen….that is the truth and if He was not risen, you would have nothing to worry about if you believe not….

God gave us choices to make and even told us to ‘choose life’  –  many times we forget that He who created us with an amazing mind also gave us a brain that controls actions in us that are involuntary….like breathing..How many of us think to breath and to tell our hearts to beat….??????

If you got a brain today,  choose wisely and do right.   It makes God happy to see you using the brain He gave you to think before you speak, act wisely about the things of this world and seek peace with all men and with God. 

God will give you wisdom as He sees you making good choices.

He IS RISEN!!!
