Two years ago to the day I wrote the below post. It is just as inspiring and encouraging today as it was when it was originally written.
I hope it helps you today. Know the rain is coming.
The world shouts to the skies when it becomes desperate for rain. The world waits, never knowing when the waters will come, but knowing they must come.
The winds dance, the trees sway, the flowers bloom, the birds sing, the tides rise, all in reverence to their Maker, in obedience to His word.
If all of the world bows to His word, so will I.
If everything around me believes the sun will shine, the moon will rise, the rain will fall, then so shall I.

Recently, in my alone time with the Lord, I’ve been telling Him I am in need of prayer and encouragement. There have been several things on my heart I couldn’t quite talk about with other Christians, so these matters have been mulling around in my head and I found I could only put them into words while in the presence of God.
Have you ever been there? As if you have a whole list of prayer requests, yet you find yourself unable to bring them up with other believers?
Well, last Friday, the Lord took my list and went through them one by one, and all I had to do was sit on the couch and listen.

Peace Be Still
Those are the words ringing in my ears.
As the waves crash around us, our Lord says Be Still
As the wind howls against us, our Lord says Be Still
As the rain beats upon us, our Lord says Be Still

I belong to the King of kings and the Lord of lords
I belong to the Creator of life
I belong to the Maker of the universe
I belong to the One who spoke worlds into existence
I belong to the Designer who formed light by simply saying let it be
I belong to the Master of the masterpiece I live in

There are times in life when it seems as if the world is standing still and I’m no longer moving forward, as if everyone around me is living and I’m just existing, when every desire seems to remain unfulfilled and my prayers are going unheard.
In those moment, I must remind myself who my God is.
My God is the creator of the universe. He spoke the world into existence. He taught the sun how to shine, the wind how to sing and the trees how to dance.
My God formed man out of His own image because He believed man was worthy of being like Him, looking like Him, talking like Him, walking as He does and interacting as only His image could.
My God sees all things; therefore, He is never worried about the outcome because He knows how to get me to victory.

There was a time in my life where everywhere I looked I only saw the chaos going on around me, in the physical and the spiritual. I came to the Lord and, while sitting in His silence, heard Him say;
“Close your eyes”

I don’t typically post words God gives me. Primarily because I desire to keep them just between God and I and anyone He specifically may mention, but also because I can sometimes go back and forth thinking, “is this me, or is this God?” which I believe is often a typical thought when receiving a declaration from the Lord.
I’m posting the below Word I received yesterday because it goes perfectly with what we are watching with the recent development of division within the Christian community. There is a shifting taking place, but a necessary one. It is time for the Remnant to be divided from the masses.
We are living in interesting times. I’m so thankful we serve the one and only King!

This morning, while in prayer, the word “aligning” heavily struck my Spirit.
I believe God is doing a mighty aligning for His people.
I saw paths that have seemed to lead nowhere coming together to end exactly where God intended them to be.
I saw people who have been downcast, frustrated, confused, sad, angry, depressed because of their current life’s circumstances, suddenly looking backward and saying, “it all makes sense now”.

The Lord is moving.
We may not always be able to see it, feel it, touch it, but He is on the move. God is often doing things behind the scenes that sometimes takes weeks, months, years to come to fruition, but all along, He is moving. Continue reading “He Is Moving”
There are so many Christians who have grown weary in their well doing. So many have prayed without ceasing, fasted regardless of difficulty and continued to be sensitive to the Spirit even when the world tells them to turn from Him. So many have continued to stand through exhaustion, fight through discouragement and rejoice in the midst of their continual battles.
It truly is incredible to witness the obedience of God’s Remnant.
Today, I feel the need to encourage those who are feeling the weight of the battles upon their shoulders and the weariness that has crept in on all sides: you will witness your miracle and live your breakthrough.

Positivity is something I’ve recently been battling to capture. It has eluded me like a fish I’m trying to catch with my hands in a large pond; right when I think I have hold of it, something comes along to scare it away.
I know I’m not alone with this particular fight. So many Christians are battling and waiting on the Lord for their victory, breakthrough, miracle, overflow, answer…so much waiting, which leads to discouragement.
I became curious and began researching scripture on waiting. As I read through the many, many verses regarding waiting upon the Lord, the Spirit said to me, “WAITING IS A FORM OF FAITH”. Continue reading “Within The Waiting”
There have been several moments in my life where I’ve wondered where God was. I’m not proud of these moments but I won’t lie and say I’m the perfect Christian or that I never doubt the Lord. The past several months have been difficult for me, spiritually and mentally. I work in Washington D.C., where I truly believe the battle is raging more-so than nearly anywhere in the world.
There is a spiritual heaviness residing over the city, something that is nearly palpable. It makes me sad to admit, but my Nation’s Capitol, although physically beautiful, has become dirty with the darkness we have allowed into the country. I say “we” because the church has allowed this to happen. We didn’t stand against evil when it knocked on our door because we feared what the masses would think, now we are dealing with the repercussions of opening the door rather than locking it and telling the enemy to leave.

Right now, in this moment where things are quiet and I have time to reflect upon who my God is, I feel confident that all will be okay. I have found myself bogged down with so many concerns over the past several months: concerns for my Country, the Remnant, the overall future of the Church.
But, right now, there is something within me that simply knows, believes, that we, you and I and everyone else that is a part of the Remnant, will get through this trying time and end up exactly where God wants us.
In the physical, none of this makes sense, all seems murky and confusing, but in the Spiritual we are making our way through the night towards the light of a New Day. Continue reading “New Day”
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.

You are not alone, whoever you are that needs encouragement today. You will get through whatever it is you are up against, whatever enemy you are facing you will defeat, if you simply believe. There is no weapon that could be formed against you, either in the physical or the spiritual, that can harm you, do you know why? You are a child of the King of kings and the Lord of lords. You have been adopted into the line of Jesus Christ, you are royalty. Continue reading “You Are Not Alone”
