Powerful Play

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”

Stand

To Christians, to those who stand when others bow, refuse to listen to the shouts of man over the still small voice of God. To those who reject the lies poured out by those in power and instead cling to the truth of the written Word.

To the Remnant, the few and far between who speak out when others are silent, who call sin sin and stand on the truth of the scriptures. To those who are willing to take the beating they know will come if they position themselves beside Jesus. To those who step out, knowing full well that stepping forward means you are placing a scarlet letter on your chest, willingly making yourself a target to the masses.

To those who are tired of the lies, of the acceptance of evil, of the wrong that we see flooding into our societies like a tidal wave crashing in and sweeping away everything good and pure. To the people who are reading these words right now and thinking, “this is me, she’s writing to me”, I have one thing to say to you, one thing to beg of you…STAND.

Fall

Lord, your people need you, now more than ever before. They are hungry for your Word, their stomachs growl with the desire to digest your truth. Your people are thirsty for your Spirit, their bodies long for the refreshing rain of your presence.

God, if you don’t fall on them, on me, then we will drop by the wayside, become small in a world where we have no choice but to become big if we are to survive. Continue reading “Fall”

Hold On

Hold on, all those who are weary, heavy laden and heartbroken. Hold on, for your Savior is coming. He hears you, He sees you, He desires to heal you.

There is no enemy that can defeat you if you simply hold on to hope, hold on to peace, hold on to the knowledge that you are going to get through this. For, whatever it is you are going through is no match for your King, whatever darkness is surrounding you is not greater than the light within you. There is nothing that can take you out if you simply refuse to be taken down.

Know that greater the battle means greater the victory, the bigger the storm the bigger the blessing.

Big Empty Room

When I think of where I was not long ago, I’m amazed. My heart was broken, my spirit in torment and my mind a jumbled mess. I was trying to find the right way to go but I wasn’t using the only light provided to me in order to find the next step. I was trying to hear God’s voice but couldn’t above the yelling of the chaos around me. I wanted to please the Lord but was battling with wanting to please the world as well.

I allowed my heart to be turned from my King, which was one of the greatest mistakes I have ever made. It led me down a dark path, a path leading to nowhere but confusion, torment and hurt. I was lost and knew it but didn’t know how to get back. The moment I took my eyes off Jesus I became entangled in a web of lies. Continue reading “Big Empty Room”

Tamed By The Master

I thought I was wild and running free, yet I was actually controlled by my own emotions and constrained by the whims and ways of the world around me. I thought I was uninhibited and unharnessed until I was tamed by the Master, for only in His taming could He show me how restrained I really was. My mind was a victim to the happiness the world said I should or should not feel. My heart was broken by those who had no right to hold it. My emotions were a roller coaster, up one day then plummeting the next. What I thought was freedom was never really free at all. Continue reading “Tamed By The Master”
