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”
There is only one concern I have in this life. It doesn’t scare me to walk into the unknown, surrounded by people I’ve never met or to be placed into a position I don’t fully understand. I don’t spend my time worrying about things of that nature, but there is a single thought I can’t seem to shake, one thought that consumes me beyond my ability to run away from…what if I lose “THIS”?
This, as in this closeness I have to my Father, this overwhelming and all-consuming love for Him, need to be with Him, desire to be continuously surrounded by Him. I can’t lose Him, I can’t afford to.
I can’t do this on my own, that much I intimately know. I have no ability beyond what you give me, what you pour into me. My strength is weak in comparison to yours and my thoughts slow unless replaced with the mind of Christ.
Lord, I know I am no match for the giant and no enemy to the foe unless I have you backing me. I know I am small compared to the mountain and insignificant to the wave as it comes roaring in. When the tides rise I have no way of keeping my head above water unless you are the firm ground beneath my feet.
But, Lord, I also know that when you step in there isn’t an enemy in the world that can stand against me. I know that when you put your armor upon my shoulders no sword can pierce me and no bullet can make me bleed. Lord, I know that when you fill my mouth wisdom floods out far beyond my years and education. I know, God, that when you fight through me, I am unstoppable. Continue reading “The Lord Will Fight For You”
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”
I’m not walking in my own strength, I’m walking in the Lord’s, therefore I will go faster and farther than I ever imagined.
I’m not understanding with my own mind, I have the mind of Christ, therefore I will understand things far beyond my ability to comprehend.
I’m not fighting with my own weapons, I have the full armor of God, therefore no sword can pierce me and no enemy can defeat me.
The time is at hand, the trumpets have been blown. The Remnant is being called to come together like never before, stand side by side in a way we have never stood. We have watched many fall as temptations came, witnessed causalities as our fellow brothers and sisters became too wrapped up in the ways of the world, in the attacks of the enemy, to continue to fight. But, those that are standing are ready, are able, and are angry. Continue reading “The Trumpets Have Been Blown”
The Lord did not allow David to fail, no matter how many times Saul tried to kill him or how many battles he fought, David was victorious because he was God’s man.
The Lord did not allow Esther to fail, regardless of the attacks on her uncle’s life or the fact she could have died when she went before the King, she was God’s woman.
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”
I have to believe that you are who the Word says you are, for, if I don’t, then what do I believe in? If you didn’t send Jesus, then I, we, have no Savior. If you don’t heal, then there is no hope for a miracle. If you don’t deliver, then all we can do is fall. If you don’t listen to us, then we are all just talking in an empty room. Continue reading “I Believe”
Recently, a friend of mine lost a child. I cannot begin to imagine the pain he is walking through, the torment of his thoughts or the heartache he is feeling in this moment. The world has become so dark it is sometimes difficult to see the light, the air so thin it may seem hard to take a breath. Now, more than ever, it is so important to draw close to the Lord. Continue reading “His Desire”
We live in a world where good is bad and bad is good, darkness is perceived as light and light is shunned as darkness. We have placed God on a pedestal far from where we stand and tell the masses that the Lord is always in control, no matter if we are living a life after Him or not. Continue reading “Which Side Of The Line?”
My Lord, you are my song
Your words spring forth from my lips
My God, you are my breath
Your air fills my longing lungs
My King, you are my command
Your direction I await to be given
My Father, you are my protection
Your wings I am hidden beneath
“You crown the year with Your goodness.” -Psalm 65:11 (NIV)
I call 2019 forth and say you will be GOOD.
2019 will be a year of harvest, of healing, promotion and overflow.
2019 will be a year of victory, a year of the everlasting love of the Lord to fall upon His people and fill them to the very brim. Continue reading “2019”
We cannot afford to forget what Jesus did for us, what He sacrificed for us, for you and me.
For you, Jesus took on Satan. He came to a sin filled world for you, to take up the cross and defeat death. Continue reading “For You”
I don’t desire to be famous, but I do desire to be significant. I don’t care if the masses ever know my name, but I do care if the Kingdom knows it.
It doesn’t matter if people like me, but it means the world to me that the enemy trembles at the thought of me. It is nothing to me if I never pick up a sword in the physical, but it is everything to me that I carry one continuously in the spiritual. I don’t care if my voice is magical to the ear or my singing desirable to the people, but I need it to be powerful to the rival and commanding to the foe. Continue reading “What I Want”
