This morning, I awoke thinking, “My God is a consuming Fire” from the song Mighty Warrior. The words seemed to be on a continuous loop running through my mind without me even realizing it. While out for a walk I was telling myself, nearly subconsciously, “My God is a consuming fire”. While getting dressed, eating breakfast, and walking to work the same thing was happening.
As I sit here and write, I wonder if this line was specifically placed into my mind for the Remnant. I don’t know a single Christian today who isn’t battling something. Some of the battles are massive giants, standing tall in front of us like a mountain that just doesn’t seem capable of crumbling. Others in the Remnant are simply in one fight after the next, some big and some small, never seeming to get a break. I often think of God as my Father, a comforter and protector, but I sometimes forget that first and foremost He is GOD, the Creator of the Universe and the Master of all mankind.

Lately, it seems as if there is a heaviness residing over God’s people, a weariness over those who are fighting for Truth. On a daily basis we’re battling a multitude of issues, even within our own congregations.
It’s discouraging to see those we call brothers and sisters fighting against the infallibility of the Word because of the world’s influence and the acceptance of everything leading to the rejection of nothing.
It’s heart breaking to watch the world push away from the Lord and all a relationship with Him brings.
It’s angering to listen to the modern-day church twist and turn the Word until it’s become something God never designed.
It’s hard to stand on morals and principles that are deemed archaic and outdated.
But, to me, probably the most disheartening aspect of all we are seeing today is the fact that there are no clear lines anymore, leading to confusion of who can be trusted and who is truly on our side.
I want to take a moment to simply tell those who are feeling the weight of the sin upon this world, the sadness of watching those we thought were teammates turn from our side-your God is a consuming fire, nothing is going to stop Him from doing what He desires to do.

So many of us have been praying, constantly and continually, for breakthrough, overflow, healing, finances, promotion, etc, etc, etc. We have been going before the Lord and begging Him to be seen, to be shown in a major way in our lives, to fight the battle we all know is at hand.
This morning while praying, I was going through what I always go through. “Lord, I pray over my family, Country, President, the Remnant,” but when I got to the part of praying for myself and the things I am persistently asking God for, I felt a “halt” in my spirit, something that said, “Stop praying and start receiving”.
I don’t know why I feel this and I don’t know when I will see it happen, but I believe God has maneuvered His people into a place of complete dependence on Him, therefore He can now do what He desires to do in our lives.

What do I have need of that God cannot provide? What battle could I face that God could not win? What enemy could come against me that God could not defeat? Is there a mountain too high for Him to climb? Is there an ocean too deep for Him to swim? Is there a valley too wide for Him to cross? Is there anything too great or mighty for my God, for your God?

Have you ever felt like a pawn on a chess board, an insignificant participant in some sort of game? You want to be a major player, to have a monumental role, title, part, to be an important character in this grand game, yet you feel as miniscule and unable to make an impact as just a regular little pawn on a giant board.
While praying for the Remnant the other day I saw a chess board. There were kings, queens, knights, rooks, bishops, the players we all see when we think of a winning game, but there were also many, many pawns. The Lord said to me,
“I am strategically placing my pawns in positions of power”
I knew in that moment that there was going to be a time when all the pawns moved together to take control of the board that seems lost, to turn the tide on the enemy and, together, make a dominating play. Continue reading “Powerful Play”
Lord, let your cloak of confidence envelop us. Allow your power and ability to take the place of the heaviness of vulnerability and fear. We need you to fill us up, overtake us, push us out and take us over. We must decrease for you to increase, So, decrease us, Lord, push us out until all that is left in each of us is you.
We can’t do this, whatever it is you desire for us to do, but we know you can do it. So, God, wipe us out and build us up again, but, this time we will be built upon the firm foundation of the truth of the Word instead of the lies of the world. Continue reading “Send Us”
Shouldn’t we live in a state of continuous expectancy?
When we pray, shouldn’t we expect our words to be heard? If our Father’s ears prick at the sound of our voices, then He begins to put a plan into place the second we ask for and believe in a miracle. (Matthew 21:22) Continue reading “Great Expectation”
