LYING~ Never & Always Not the Worst Thing EVER

 

 

“Teachers often teach that which they need to learn themselves.
I am no different.
I am writing this book first and foremost for myself.
I desire a wholesome tongue,
one that always learns to speak what is pleasing to God.

I have learned what James the brother of Jesus,
meant when he said
“No man can tame the tongue”

Christmas Presence & Christmas Presents~ Let’s see you top this one Santa!

 

Being a single mom on a lower income, I had become accustom to receiving a Christmas grocery hamper every year to help us squeak thru December with all its extra festive frills.
 

 

But it had been growing strong in my heart that I needed to take a stand against that mediocrity monster and put my faith foot down in this area of my life.
 
So this Christmas, with a  big deep breath, I stomped.

Learning to be used by God~ SomeThoughts on Serving

 

“A reoccurring point is being made in my spirit, over
and over again.
I think, perhaps, I am finally getting it.
Quite simply, my life is not about me.  Period.
Never should have been, never should be again.
If there ever was a thermostat that will effect the temperature of any relationship, it is serving.

When you begin to practice this key on a consistent basis,
things begin to heat up.

By serving you will soften the hardest heart and humble
the proudest ego.

Answered Prayer for You~ Isaiah 55:11

“So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth; it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the things where to I sent it.”
 
WOW !
Father, you said that not me! What an immensely bold promise! 

One, God, that you are more than able to keep. Because you have said it God, it has to be true.

Your word accomplishes things. It accomplishes wonderful things!! 

Things that please you

And Daddy God, we know that the things that please you are GOOD.
Father, today I commit to being your mouth piece. Set a gaurd over my mouth Lord, so that I would not sin against you. But strengthen me, quicken me, so that all I say blesses and brings life.
Let me speak only your words today. Your words which prosper and accomplish YOUR WILL
I pray, in Jesus beautiful name, the name above all names, for my bloggie brothers and sisters.
Lord, I speak the word over them today. Father that you direct them in all that they do and say.
That they commit their ways to you, and you will lead them.
For those that are struggling to find purpose and direction, Lord that you would overwhelm them with your goodness.
Father, that they would be filled with a hunger and a passion for your word.
Jesus, you said you are the living word, let the hunger and passion be for you, and you alone.
Father, assure them that as they open their mouths you will fill them.
Fill them with your word. Fill them with your very self.
In Jesus name,
Amen, so be it.

Answered Prayer for You~ Proverbs 18:21

“Death and life are in the power of the
tongue: and they that indulge in it shall eat the fruit
of it (life and death).”

(Amplified Bible)

Father, you have said it. The power of my tongue.
MY TONGUE!!! POWER!

Power for life or power for death. What an immensely sobering thought.

You have put all that I need right under my nose. Literally!

Father, saturate me with your Holy Spirit so that the words I speak are words of life.

I choose to speak life. I refuse to speak death. I absolutely refuse.

Help, me Father, set a seal over my mouth so I will not sin against you or anyone else.

Father, I pray for my bloggie brothers and sisters, help us to really grasp the fullness of our words. The eternal power of our mouth. Let us boldly call the things that be not as if they were. Father, we do promise to open our mouths and give you the glory and the honour.

Father, here on this blog we choose to only speak that which edifys and uplifts. We choose to keep our mouths shut and not enter into gossip, lies and unproductive speech. We choose.

Let us keep your word before us, so your word enters into our heart and grows. Lord you have taught us that the things that enter into our heart will come out our mouths.

So Lord right now, we choose to agressively put your word in our eyes, our ears and our mouths so it enters into our hearts.
Jesus you are the word. YOU ARE THE WORD. When we set you word to grow in our heart, YOU GROW IN OUR HEART!

WOW! What a thrill, we will grow and become more like you, Jesus our wonder master and Lord.

In Jesus Name
Amen~ so be it

 

 

Answered Prayer for You~ Jeremiah 29:13

You will seek me and find me
when you seek me with all your heart
 

Iwill seek you Lord! I will seek you with everything in my heart and soul.
I will seek you with all my might and every ounce of my breath.
I will look for you, I will listen for your voice.
I will be ever ready, anticipating and expecting!
Then I will FIND YOU! Hallelujah! I will find you, we will meet and we will commune.
What a promise!
Lord stir up a hunger to seek you in your children. Set them aflame with a passion for your presence. God don’t let us settle for anything less.
Let us not get comfortable in this world, knowing that we are not citizens here.
Lord, I pray for my bloggie brothers and sisters all over the world. As they read this, now,
they will hunger and thirst for your righteousness more than anything.
That they would have eyes to see and ears to hear what their Father longs to give them.
You hunger for us God, so much that you gave up everything to restore relationship with us.
Thank you so much! To be found by you! To be loved and pursued by you!
What a thought! Bless your wonderful name.
Amen~ so be it

The Fearless Word

 

We really have no concept of how closely our Daddy God has us.   

Absolutely nothing is going to pry us from His fingers.

I sometimes think if our spiritual eyes were opened we would see that we are not only in His hand, but messed and intertwined INTO His hand.

There is not separating us from Him.

He is in us.
We are in Christ.

Fighting fear?
Soak in His promises to you.

“In you, O LORD, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame;
deliver me in your righteousness. Turn your ear to me, come quickly to my rescue; be my rock of refuge,  a strong fortress to save me.”
Psalm 31:1-2 (NIV)


“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler”
Psalm 91:1-4 (NKJV)
 


“A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked”
Psalm 91:7-8 (NKJV)
 


“God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed,
And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea.”
Psalm 46:1-2 (NKJV)
 


“Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble;
thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance.”
Psalm 32:7 (KJV)
 


“Let all who run to you for protection always sing joyful songs.
Provide shelter for those who truly love you and let them rejoice.”
Psalm 5:11 (CEV)
 


“Discover for yourself that the LORD is kind.
Come to him for protection, and you will be glad.”
Psalm 34:8 (CEV)
 


“Let me live with you forever and find protection under your wings, my God.”
Psalm 61:4 (CEV)
 


“It is better to trust the LORD for protection than to trust anyone else,”
Psalm 118:8 (CEV)
 



 

“My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all;
and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.”
John 10:29 (KJV)
