“For Such A Time As This”

Wayne Watson song

God has a plan for you all (Jeremiah 29:11)

Whatever it is Lord”

Honesty, I heard this amazing, timely song on Touched By An Angel, same title, Season 6, Episode 1.

“To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.

“He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.”

Ecclesiastes 3:1, 11

 

Jesus, Friend At Midnight

Luke 11:5-8, “And He said to them, ‘Which of you shall have a friend, and go to him at midnight and say to him, “Friend, lend me 3 loaves; for a friend of mine has come to me on his journey, and I have nothing to set before him”; and he will answer from within and say, “Do not trouble me; the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give to you”?

‘I say to you, though he will not rise and give to him because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will rise and give him as many as he needs'”

Luke 10:39, “And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus’ feet and heard His word.”

“One thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10:42

Dear Jesus, how can You be so high above us and still be so down to earth and approachable? We love You.

Olive Oil is Good – Prophetic Dream

Exodus 25:6, “…Oil for the light, and spice for the anointing oil and for the sweet incense”

Dream:  walked into the kitchen, a man held out a large silver baking pan and asked what to use on it to coat it. I asked if he’s making a cake.  He laughed, ‘yes.’ I said ‘olive oil.’ He said, ‘that sounds bad. I said, ‘no, it’s good.’

Interpretation*:

  • The baker is the devil
  • The pan is what’s in his heart
  • Olive oil is the Holy Spirit

Dear Friends, I pray for discernment of good and evil for you and that you’re not distracted by counterfeit good things.

Bibles In Hands

Praise God, let His holy, mighty and true word go forth in all nations! And let the eyes of their understanding be enlightened, in Jesus’ name.

“The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire.  There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

“Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father, He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”                                  Matthew 13:41-43

“I Will Stand On The Top Of The Hill”

Exodus 17:8, 9, 11, 13

“Now Amalek came and fought with Israel in Rephidim.

“And Moses said to Joshua, ‘Choose us some men and go out, fight with Amalek. Tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in my hand.’

“And so it was, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. 

“So Joshua defeated Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.”

“Stand up” I heard in the Spirit.

Praising You & raising my hands feeling Your holy fire, I don’t want to leave Your presence. Like Moses raising the rod of Aaron, You give me victory in the battle.  Lord God, give us victory in all our battles, in Jesus’ name.

 

Soldiers At War

“He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.

“And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:                                                                                                              KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.”                Revelation 19:13, 16

On God’s side; Jesus, Savior, Master and Lord

We’re not waiting to see who wins before deciding which side we’re on. We’re for the Lord.  (We know who wins: Jesus)

Martin Luther King Junior said only love can conquer hate.

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.”

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup White Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Bulgar Wheat*
  • 1 1/2 Cups Mashed Bananas (about 2 and a half bananas)
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 2 Ounces Softened Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Coffee
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • Dusting of Cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, coat baking pan with oil. Mix flour, wheat and baking soda together. Separately break eggs in a bowl and dissolve salt, cream butter, and stir in oil. Combine egg mixture to flour mixture, add coffee, cinnamon and bananas, pour into pan. (*If you desire to soak the Bulgar wheat first; cover with boiling water in a separate bowl for one hour.)

Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean, let partially cool before serving.

Enjoy this multi-layer flavored bread with family & friends or at least good memories and hopes of more times with family & friends.

Lentil Soup Recipe

Isaiah 40:1, “Comfort, yes, comfort My people!”

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup Dry Lentils
  • 4 Cups Chicken Stock
  • 1/2 Onion, diced
  • 3 Garlic Cloves, diced
  • 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
  • 3/4 Cup Diced, Canned Carrots*
  • 1 Teaspoon Rosemary
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Oregano
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Sea Salt

Directions:

Heat onion in oil in a soup pot over medium flame until clear, add garlic and cook 5 more minutes.  Add lentils, chicken stock, rosemary, oregano and salt, bring to a boil, immediately lower heat to simmer 50 minutes or until beans are soft. Add cooked carrots in the last 15 minutes. *If you’re using fresh carrots, add them with the onions at the beginning to soften.

Ladle into serving bowls, there’s just enough room for dipping bread.  With chicken stock made from the bones, this is so rich, it becomes a new “comfort food.”

I pray you enjoy this in good health with family and friends, in Jesus’ name.

 

The Best Dad in the Whole World

“For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.”                   Romans 8:15

It was told to me: our earthly father isn’t perfect, but our Heavenly Father is perfect.

“He shall cry to Me, ‘You are my Father, my God, and the rock of my salvation.'”

Psalm 89:26

Father?  please heal the hurting, feed the hungry, move mountains for Your righteousness’ sake, in Jesus’ name.

 

Hope Generation – Ben Courson

“Therefore, prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”   1 Peter 1:13 (NASB)

https://www.bencourson.com/

God’s hope                             Igniting revival in the hearts of his listeners 

Stemming from his own bout with suicide and depression, Ben created Hope generation, aiming to help those struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts to those who’ve lost hope and meaning amid their success. The ministry is shouting about the God of Hope from the mountaintops to help people rise out of despair.

Father God, raise up the young leaders as voices for hope, truth and light to a desperate world, in Jesus’ name.
