“For Now”

God answers in my spirit.

  • tend a garden
  • recover from….?
  • work here
  • now you rest

“Reset” He told a friend, take a few days and unplug, listen to Him. Waiting on the Lord isn’t passive, it’s believing and trusting with all your heart.  Leaning not on your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5). Standing against the enemy with your shield of faith (Eph 6), refusing to back down from your belief in Jesus.

Isaiah 40:31 (NKJV), “But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.”

Psalm 25:3, “Indeed, let no one who waits on You be ashamed; Let those be ashamed who deal treacherously without cause.”

Psalm 27:14, “Wait on the Lord
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!”

Jesus talking:

Matthew 24:36, “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.”

John 14:27, “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

Nightlight – Prophetic Dream

Choosing a nightlight in a store; picking up one, then another from a bin. An older woman came over to help me.

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matt 5:14 (NKJV).

“And the Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.” John 1:5

“Arise, shine; for your Light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you.” Isaiah 60:1-2

“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.” Ephesians 5:11.

Thank You, Daddy God, for this special dream!  I count on You all the day long, everyday.  You love us and make us feel special.  We don’t call You, but You called us to Your throne room.

 

 

For Your Profit

Hebrews 12:10, “For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness.”

“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits:

  • Who forgives all your iniquities,
  • Who heals all your diseases,
  • Who redeems your life from destruction,
  • Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies
  • Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
  • So that your youth is renewed like the eagles’s.” Psalm 103:2-5

When these things are absent from my life, I sure notice.  Lord Jesus, help us to honor You and bless You everyday for all the wonderful things You give us.

Say It!

“Therefore I will not keep silentI will speak out in the anguish of my spirit,
    I will complain in the bitterness of my soul.” Job 7:11 (NIV)

“I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O Lord, thou knowest.” Psalm 40:9 (KJV).

“The crowd rebuked them and told them to be quiet, but they shouted all the louder, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!” Matt 20:31 (NIV)

Psalm 118:17 (NKJV), “I shall not die, but live, And declare the works of the Lord.

“And said to Him, ‘Do You hear what these are saying?’ And Jesus said to them, ‘Yes. Have you never read,      “Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have perfected praise“?'” Matthew 21:16 (NKJV)

Esther 4:

Vs. 14, “For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet, who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”

Vs. 16, “I will go to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish!”

Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.” Proverbs 16:24

“A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver. Like an earring of gold and an ornament of fine gold is a wise rebuker to an obedient ear.” Proverbs 25:11-12.

Open rebuke is better than love carefully concealed.” Proverbs 27:5.

 

Can I Have Another Blessing?

Do we have faith to ask for more than one blessing like this store owner?

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” Jesus in Matthew 7:7 (NKJV)

“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.” Malachi 3:10 (NIV)

Some Body Up There Loves You

Depressed? Feeling unloved, lonely, left out, forgotten, unnoticed? Your Creator Father loves you and notices you. 

Recently I met a former co-worker and remembered all our conversations, she seemed like she could use some TLC. How many times does a friend brighten our day and encourage us?

Before you were born I knew you. (Jeremiah 1:5)

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” Jesus in John 3:16 (NKJV).

  • “You number my wanderings;
  • put my tears into Your bottle;
  • are they not in Your book?” Psalm 56:8.

“In all their affliction He was afflicted, and the Angel of His Presence saved them; 

“In His love and in His pity He redeemed them;

“And He bore them and carried them all the days of old.” Isaiah 63:9.

Jeremiah 31:3-5: “The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying: ‘Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.

“Again I will build you, and you shall be rebuilt, O virgin of Israel! You shall again be adorned with your tambourines, and shall go forth in the dances of those who rejoice.

“You shall yet plant vines on the mountains of Samaria; the planters shall plant and eat them as ordinary food.” 

 

“You Are Set Free Now”

Terry Meeuwsen on the 700 Club said during a Praying for your needs video, Mar 3, 2017. “God has a word for you today, ‘You are beginning to identify with your malady, your illness…What would you have Me do for you?  Release your identity from that, grab hold of Jesus and be set free, you’re healed.'”

What are you saying about yourself? What are you believing?

“He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.” Ps 107:20 (NKJV).

“Then His fame went throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all sick people who were afflicted with various diseases and torments, and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics; and He healed them.” Matt 4:24.

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor;

“He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind,

“To set at liberty those who are oppressed;

“To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.” Luke 4:18-19

 

Peaceable Righteousness

“Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live?

“For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness.

“Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.”   Hebrews 12:9-11 (NKJV)

Praying for every person on earth to have this ‘peaceable fruit of righteousness’ in your hearts, to be partakers, recipients of His holiness, to be filled with the knowledge of God, His Kingdom and dominion and with His Holy Spirit.  To have hope in His goodness through trials and gladness, in Jesus’ name.

 

God Will Break Through

Part of a prophecy my husband & I received, I’ll share with you:

  • The heavens over you have been like brass.
  • God is breaking brass (see Isah 45:2).
  • As you’re giving in worship & giving in devotions, 
  • God is breaking through.
  • As we turn our attention to Him, a release is coming upon you.
  • God says just like you’re experiencing rain in the natural (see Isah 55:10-11),
  • what’s in the environment, there’s a saturation of the Spirit of His Presence that’s coming up on you.

Isaiah 45:2 (NKJV), “I will go before you and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron.”

Isaiah 55: 10-11, “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but is shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.”

When several prophecies are given out at a prayer meeting, whoever hears the word, though not spoken directly to them, if it sparks in their spirit may receive the same word.  Halleluija, God doesn’t play favorites!

Double Portion

Isaiah 61:7 (NKJV), “Instead of shame you shall have double honor, and instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion.  Therefore in their land they shall possess double; everlasting joy shall be theirs.”

Praise God, I receive it!  Do you all? Ahh the Haas avocado seed took a month later than the other avocado seed to sprout.  Surprisingly, it sprouted two stems on the one same root!

Job 42:10, “And the LORD restored Job’s losses when he prayed for his friends.  Indeed the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.”

Zechariah 9:12, “Return to the stronghold, you prisoners of hope.  Even today I declare that I will restore double to you.”

Elisha to Elijah in 2 Kings 2:9, “Please let a double portion of your spirit be upon me.” In verse 10, Elijah replies that only if Elisha sees Elijah be taken from him will he receive the double portion.  In verse 12 “And Elisha saw it and he cried out, ‘My father, may father, the chariot of Israel and its horsemen.'”
