You Are A Flower

“The flowers appear on the earth; the time of singing has come…” Song 2:12

Old prophecy I received that I am a flower in God’s garden, swaying and smiling in the sun.

I proclaim you’re each special, made for a purpose and God can’t do without you.  Some may look similar, but each unique. Let Him who sees the heart attract and beautify you.

“Your hands made me and formed me; give me understanding to learn your commands.” Psalm 119:73 (NIV)

Keys of Death

“I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.” Revelation 1:18

“This understanding of death…freed Rich to live…and love people without expectations.” James Bryan Smith relates about Rich Mullins in “An Arrow Pointing to Heaven.”

Such peace and comfort Jesus gives, knowing He keeps our loved ones.

 

Miracle Appointment

A friend walked up to me, “Are you going to call?” She said before she left the house, “the Lord told me to agree with you in prayer.” Because she obeyed God, I received the answer I was praying for.  Thank You, Jesus!

Corrie ten Boom says, “love and obedience” in Not I, But Christ.

“But Samuel replied: “Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the LORD? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams.” 1 Samuel 15:22 (NIV)

Jesus in John 21:17, “Do you love Me?”

Desire — Laura Bon

Visions, Revelations and Messages In this revelation the Lord said to me, “your want for the presence of God must turn to desire.” Desire is deeper than want. Earnest heartfelt desire is what produces result and that desire is hunger and thirst. And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water…

**See Laura Bon’s blogs and the prophecies from the Lord.  This is one more that really touched me.  1 Peter 4:10 (NLT), “God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.”

 

Simple Faith

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart …” Proverbs 3:5

My friend is teaching me: believe God will do what He says and pull up scripture accordingly.

Believe Me because I come from the Father or believe Me for the works themselves (Jesus in John 14:11)

“Though the fig tree may not blossom,
Nor fruit be on the vines;
Though the labor of the olive may fail,
And the fields yield no food;
Though the flock may be cut off from the fold,
And there be no herd in the stalls—
18 Yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
I will joy in the God of my salvation.

19  The Lord God is my strength;
He will make my feet like deer’s feet,
And He will make me walk on my high hills.

To the Chief Musician. With my stringed instruments.”

Habakkuk 3:17-19

“So Jesus said to them, ‘Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, “Move from here to there,” and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.‘” Jesus in Matt 17:20

 

The Serenity Prayer

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

Praying in the park one morning for God’s thoughts and words to be my thoughts and words, this prayer plaque literally fell out of a nearby pine tree!  Face down, complete with pine sap, only 3 squirrels jumping & running were present.

Lord Jesus, release Your faith to us, so that we don’t hold back in trusting You for everything.

The Whole World

“And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.”                      1 John 2:2

“Then they said to the woman, ‘Now we believe, not because of what you said, for we ourselves have heard Him and we know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world.’”                               John 4:42

Pastor Reinhard Bonnke once defended his reason for preaching in Sweden because of John 3:16!  Hallelujia!

The Anointing

“But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.” 

1 John 2:27

“For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things. Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God.”

1 John 3:20-21

“It shall come to pass in that day
That his burden will be taken away from your shoulder,
And his yoke from your neck,
And the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil.”         Isaiah 10:27

“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.”                   Psalm 23:5

“And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;”Ephesians 6:17

 

Grow Wings

For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels of God in heaven.”

Jesus assures us in Matthew 22:30

“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.”

Isaiah 40:31

“But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.”   Revelation 12:14

So I said, “Oh, that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest.”  Psalm 55:6
