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”

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.

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?

My Loudest Silence

“Destiny is the Loudest Silence You’ll Ever Hear” -Dr Myles Munroe

My loudest silence is the need, the continuous and constant desire, to advance the kingdom in some way. I don’t want the impact I have in this life to be a small one, I desire for my impact to be massive, like a valley that can fit an ocean or a mountain that stands high into the skies.

The loudest silence in my life is the need, the continuous and constant ache, to love people like Jesus loves them. Jesus didn’t love in a light way, he loved deeply. He loved enough to call sin, sin. He loved enough to refuse to allow darkness of any kind into His life. He loved enough to draw people away from lifestyles that drew them away from Him. Jesus loved enough to take the stripes, bare the cross, wear the crown and the tattered and torn robe, hang on that cross and tell the Father to forgive them, forgive us, then proclaim it is finished.

Always There

My God is awesome, He parts the red sea, just for me. My God is amazing, He healed me when I was sick, strengthened me when I was weak. My God helped me overcome the giant, defeat the lion and take down the bear. My God never lets me down.

No matter how the world pushes me, my God gives me the strength to push back. My God has never failed me nor His people, and He never will.

My God pours into me when the world drains me. My God tells me I can when the world says I can’t. My God has put a path before me that I don’t always see but I know is straight and will lead me to where I am destined to go. My God sees the whole picture when I only see a piece.
