The Devil Is A Lie! Begin To Prophesy!

speaking

The  current situation for some people looks very dark. It’s like you are in a graveyard at night with the dead. It is dry, cold, and miserable. Fear, hopelessness, doubt, and depression creeps in.  Looking to escape? Need the misery to stop? There is a solution!  Begin to prophesy over your situation.

We are created in the image and likeness of God. God spoke to the dark.

Genesis 1;2-3And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Webster’s meaning of Prophesy: to utter by or as if by divine inspiration

God will give you the words He wants you to speak over your situation. Anyone can prophesy. No one can ever go wrong speaking the word of God over dark areas. God’s word is true, life, and a light. All of God’s promises are yes and amen.

There was a man in the bible who was given divine instructions  by God on what to speak over his situation in Ezekiel 37.

Ezekiel 37:1-4 New King James Version 1 The hand of the Lord came upon me and brought me out in the Spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley; and it was full of bones. Then He caused me to pass by them all around, and behold, there were very many in the open valley; and indeed they were very dry. And He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?”So I answered, “O Lord God, You know.”Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the LordThus says the Lord God to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the Lord.” ’ ”

Read Ezekieal 37:1-14. Meditate on it. God will give you divine instructions on what to speak over your dark situation. Practice speaking the word of God over your situation and watch light come.

The devil is a lie! Begin to prophesy!

I’ve Gone Through Every Avenue, But God I Lean On You

 

avenueWebster’s meaning; Avenue- (1) a way of access route. (2) Channel of pursuing a desired object  (4) Broad road or street

Lean: (1) to cast one’s weight to one side for support. (2) to rely for support or inspiration. (3)  to incline in opinion, taste, or desire

Things happen in life good and bad that alter our route and desired destination. There are situations we can’t explain that can leave us speechless.

Because of Jesus’ sacrifice, His life bore every circumstance (past, present, and future) and nailed it on the cross; we can rely on/cast that weight on Him.

Psalm 55:22 New King James Version says Cast your burden on the LORD, And He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.

No matter what avenue or road you are on, know that whatever comes, we can cast it on God and He will keep you. It will not stop you from getting to your destination and  purpose God created you for.

I love this Bible verse by Paul:  Romans 8:38-39 Living Bible (TLB) 38 For I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from his love. Death can’t, and life can’t. The angels won’t, and all the powers of hell itself cannot keep God’s love away. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, 39 or where we are—high above the sky, or in the deepest ocean—nothing will ever be able to separate us from the love of God demonstrated by our Lord Jesus Christ when he died for us.

Glory To God! Because Jesus took everything on the cross, no matter what situation (high or low), we can lean and trust in His divine purpose. That makes us unstoppable and we can finish strong.

Paul Ending : Paul’s ValedictoryFor I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing. 

Paul went through a lot just like many of us , but he finished strong and was able to rest because he lived out the purpose God had for him. We can do the same.

I’ve gone through every avenue, but I lean on you!

 

 

Make A Decision With Clear Vision

ClipartKey_1156466

A lot of us make  decisions out of emotion, impulse, fear, obligation, desperation, anger etc…. Wisdom waits until emotions subsides so you can get revelations, and then act. There are some examples in Proverbs, which is the book of wisdom,  on making decisions.

Proverbs 16:8 You may make your plans, but God directs your action.

Proverbs 11;4 14 Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.

And the scripture most people at church are familiar with Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

How do we  obtain clear vision? It is through revelation.

Revelation: 1. (a)  an act of revealing or communicating divine truth bsomething that is revealed  by God to humans 2. (a)  making known (B) an enlightening or astonishing disclosure. (C) a pleasant often enlightening surprise

A good example in the bible on revealed knowledge from Matthew 16:13-19 Living Translation 13 When Jesus came to Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who are the people saying I[b] am?”14 “Well,” they replied, “some say John the Baptist; some, Elijah; some, Jeremiah or one of the other prophets.”15 Then he asked them, “Who do you think I am?”16 Simon Peter answered, “The Christ, the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” 17 “God has blessed you, Simon, son of Jonah,” Jesus said, “for my Father in heaven has personally revealed this to you—this is not from any human source. 18 You are Peter, a stone; and upon this rock I will build my church; and all the powers of hell shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven; whatever doors you lock on earth shall be locked in heaven; and whatever doors you open on earth shall be open in heaven!”

This is powerful. When you have the spirit of God on the inside of you, He can reveal things to you that is not in the books. God reveals Himself to those who have a heart for Him. When something is revealed to you, you are unstoppable. The enemy doesn’t stand a chance. We can walk in authority and we can speak and it will happen because it is revealed knowledge.

We get revelation through meditating the word of God, getting quiet before God, spending time with God, and having a love for God by doing what the word says.

Make a decision with clear vision!

 

Things Are Not As It Appear, Resist Fear

 

ILLUSIONScreenshot_20200104-211225_Chrome

 

Everyone’s probably heard the saying FEAR is false evidence appearing real.  The devil uses fear to keep us from moving forward.

In Job 3:25,  Job said “The thing I greatly feared has come upon me.”

We have to take our thoughts captive according to 2 Corinthians 10:5-7 by meditating, doing, and speaking the word of God.

2 Timothy 1:7 says God has not given is the spirit of fear but of power, love, and a sound mind.

We resist fear through faith in the word of God.

The doctor says you have cancer. You resist cancer with the word of God by saying,  according to Mark 11:23 I speak to the mountain of cancer and say be removed and cast into sea. I don’t doubt in my heart but believe what I say is already done, I have what I say. Exodus 23:25: Because I serve the Lord God He blesses my bread and water and takes sickness away from me. Isaiah 53:5: With His stripes I am already healed!

If you are in debt and don’t have enough to pay your bills, you need to speak the word of God by saying, ( paraphrasing) “According to Philippians 4;19 my God supplies all my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.  Deuteronomy 28:12-13: I am the lender not the borrower, the head and not the tail. Whatever I set my hands to do, prospers. Romans 13:8: I owe no man  nothing but to love.  Colossians 2:14: Jesus has blotted out my debt with its obligations and nailed it to the cross.”

For believers who tithe and trust God, Malachi 3:10-11: Because I tithe, I am proving God that he will open up the windows of heaven and pour me out a blessing I won’t have room enough to receive. He will also rebuke the devour over my situation.

These are a few examples. Get to know the word of God so you can counteract fear with the word of God.

When Jesus came from a 40 day fast, the devil kept coming at Him in Mark 4:  Jesus kept speaking the word of God. He kept saying “It is written.”

Jesus left us an example to follow in His footsteps.

James 4:7 says submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee.

We submit to God by meditating, speaking, believing, and acting on the word of God.

Paraphrasing: Romans 3:4 says let God’s word be true everything is a lie.

Things are not as it appear, resist fear!

 

 

New Year Things Become Clear: 20/20 Vision

vision

As the new year approaches we need a clear vision/perfect vision. Naturally things are not perfect, but we have a perfect God who will never steer us in the wrong direction.

How can we see things clearly in the upcoming year?  We can see things clearly through the word of God.

Psalm 119:105 says God’s word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.

The more you read the word of God, the more you will get clear direction and instruction on what to do. The key is holding onto the word of God.

Matthew 13:12 NIV Version says Whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.


The more you meditate on the word of God,  you will get more understanding, light, and you will have clear direction on what to do in any situation.  There is a song my parents would sing to me that says “Nothing from nothing leaves nothing.”  Basically you reap what you sow.

You want clear direction? Meditate and listen to God’s word daily. Speak the word of God. Be silent before God to get instructions. It should be an everyday thing.

John 8:31-32 KJV says 31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word,then are ye my disciples indeed; 32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Another way to see  clearly is with the right kind of heart.

Matthew 5:8 says blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

Things are not as they seem. We have to see things through the spirit realm, through the eyes of God. Someone could be treating you badly, but it could be a reason why they are acting in that way.  The only way to see the clear picture is through the eyes of  God. David would ask God to search His heart.

Jeremiah 17:9-10 KJV says The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? 10 I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings

We use the phrase a lot, “God knows my heart.” God does know your heart better than anyone, including yourself. We can see things a certain way until God comes in and shows you your heart. We can think we are doing 100 percent until God shows us different. We must examine ourselves on a daily basis.

I Corinthians 11:31:  For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

Lamentations 3:40 Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the LORD.

Psalm 26:2 Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.

Psalm 139:23-24 : Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: 24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Finally, write down your vision and allow God to direct you in it. Proverbs 29:18 says without a vision people perish.

One of my favorite scriptures Habakkuk 2:2-3 And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

God knows the right time to bring the vision to you.

God has been dealing with me to read Isaiah 60. As I was meditating on it, he was revealing to me that the the overflow Tammy Bradley Scott has been proclaiming for 2020 is approaching.  In verse 22 it says: at the right time I the Lord will make it happen and swiftly. 

It is the same scripture Tammy speaks a lot about. I rejoiced in my spirit.

In the new year, we are seeing things clearly by allowing the word of God to guide us.  We are daily holding onto the word of God, allowing God to search our hearts so we can see things through the eyes of God, writing the vision, and patiently waiting for God to release it.

In the new year, things become clear: 20/20 vision!

 

 

 

Go The Extra Mile To Make Someone Smile

1516263358877735901clipart-going-the-extra-mile.medDuring the holiday season things can be stressful. People can feel depressed from a loss of a love one, working extra hours to support family, health issues, challenges in relationships/family, business challenges,and financial issues.  On purpose,  make someone smile.

Proverbs 17:22 says a joyful heart does good like medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.

The greatest commandment is to love. Let’s make God smile first, by loving each other. Use the gift you have to make someone smile. It could be material gift, a word of encouragement, prayer, a phone call, spending time with someone.  cooking someone’s favorite food,  gift of humor. Whatever it is use your gift to brighten someone’s day.

Provrbs 11:25 King James Bible
The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself. 

When you are going through and you use your gift to brighten someone’s day you will reap the benefits; it is multiplied. Job in the Bible prayed for his friends while he was going through a difficult time and  got deliverance.

Go The Extra Mile, To Make Someone Smile. 

 

When Your Needs Are Met, Don’t Forget

 

remeberance

After you have got what you prayed for, remember God.

Deuteronomy 8:11-18 says  11 Be careful that you do not forget the Lord your God, failing to observe his commands, his laws and his decrees that I am giving you this day. 12 Otherwise, when you eat and are satisfied, when you build fine houses and settle down, 13 and when your herds and flocks grow large and your silver and gold increase and all you have is multiplied, 14 then your heart will become proud and you will forget the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. 15 He led you through the vast and dreadful wilderness, that thirsty and waterless land, with its venomous snakes and scorpions. He brought you water out of hard rock. 16 He gave you manna to eat in the wilderness, something your ancestors had never known, to humble and test you so that in the end it might go well with you. 17 You may say to yourself, “My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.” 18 But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.

It is easy to enjoy life and get caught up in things/people instead of the one who created us. We stop receiving guidance/ counsel and lean on our own understanding. We stop spending time with God and only talk to God when our next trial comes.

Psalm 103 says Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: 3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

During this time of receiving blessings, let us remember God. Just like we remember our loved ones who have passed on, famous people, achievements of others, we should do the same  for our Creator.

When your needs are met, don’t forget!
