Receive

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.

Choose Jesus

My heart cries out, not in pain, but in reverence to my Savior, the one who overcame so I might overcome. He handed over His deity for mortality, His crown for thorns, His royal garments for swaddling clothes and His palace for a manger. He handed over everything He had known since the beginning of time in order to come to a world He did not know to live a life He could not fully understand to sacrifice Himself for people who would not want Him.

Over 2,000 years ago, my Jesus walked willingly into this world, although He knew to walk meant to die. He came here, for me and for you, even with the complete understanding that one day He would be betrayed, beat, whipped, nailed and hung upon a cross before those He once considered friends, brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers.

Enough

Your love consumes me, from the crown of my head to the souls of my feet. It is all around me in a physical way, like I’m in a room filled with breathable water. It makes me strong, capable and able. No, I do not always feel those things, but I know those things are with me, around me and in me.

You make me enough, you make me brave and bold. You make me beautiful and brilliant.

Your love pushes out all the doubts the world bombards me with and replaces them with abilities I didn’t know I had. Continue reading “Enough”

My God Is Big

I know that regardless of what is going on around me, things will be okay. It doesn’t matter what is coming at me, pushing against me or the chaos behind me, I just believe my God is going to take care of me.

It is interesting being in this place with the Lord, it’s new. I have walked into a different room with God and I know that what is in the past must remain in the past. I can no longer doubt, for God has brought me through too much to believe He won’t do it again and again. I can no longer complain, for God has fulfilled every promise so far, what makes me think He won’t continue to fulfill? Continue reading “My God Is Big”

Rejoice

When the world presses in around me, puts walls in front of me, behind me and all around me, I believe the Lord is about to bust down the surrounding barricade.

When I feel least like worshiping is when I will worship the most for I know my worship will usher in the blessing. It doesn’t matter what my feelings tell me because feelings are not facts and are often in opposition of faith. The only truth I have to hold on to are the promises from God.

Your God

What has God told you, when you shut out the world and allow time for just the two of you?

What has God said to you, when you are walking through a battle and He gives you a word to lighten your spirit?

What has God promised you, when it seems as if the night is closing in but then His voice pierces through the darkness?

Overcome

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?
