All I Have Is Yours

“[Daughter] Son, you are always with me and all that I have is yours”

Luke 15:31

“Bounty, bounty, bounty” Pastor Pat Robertson prayed this day on August 12th, 700 Club, believing and receiving God’s goodness toward us.

Daddy God, thank You for Your generosity and faithfulness.  This is You, talking to us, Your children, and as the world gets more splintered we stand in agreement of Your Word and truth, You are so good.  Thank You for reminding my friend and I that You have plans to perform Your purposes in our lives and You provide all we need and more.

There Is A Judgment

“Be afraid of the sword for yourselves; for wrath brings the punishment of the sword, that you may know there is a judgment.”

Job 19:29

“For He is coming, for He is coming to judge the earth. He shall judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with His truth.”

Psalm 63:13

Lord Father, we are hungry for the truth, You say, ‘the truth will set you free.’ Come with Your power, truth, and love. You are all powerful, faithful and honest, we love You! In Jesus’ name.

Fear of The Lord and Comfort of The Holy Spirit

“Then the churches throughout all Judea, Galilee, and Samaria had peace and were edified.  And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, they were multiplied.”

Acts 9:31

“By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches and honor and life.                      Proverbs 22:4

Dear Heavenly Father, we pray for our spiritual brothers and sisters, Your bride, for us to only fear You and to be filled with peace and the comfort of Your abiding Holy Spirit in Jesus’ name. Amen.

 

We Are In Revival Now

“And now for a little while grace has been shown from the Lord our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a peg in His holy place, that our God may enlighten our eyes and give us a measure of revival in our bondage.

“For we were slaves. Yet our God did not forsake us in our bondage; but He extended mercy to us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to revive us, to repair the house of our God, to rebuild its ruins, and to give us a wall in Judah and Jerusalem.”

Ezra 9:8-9

“For thus says the High and Lofty One who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: 

“‘I dwell in the high and holy place, with him who has a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.'”

Isaiah 57:15

Some of us are in revival now, position yourself! Jesus is here, wholeness is here – today. I was surprised several years ago, in a spirit-filled church, a woman said, ‘We’re in revival now.’ Believe.

We’ve turned toward You Lord God, we’ve put our sins away from us and hate them.

We wholeheartedly trust You, love You

We’re on fire for You now & forever, O Lord. You are sovereign & are high above the murmurings of the people & above all power & principality in heaven and on earth.  You’re generous, O God, You’ve told us what You’re doing, You guide us.  

You’re the fountain of life & we are expectantly hopeful.

“In the way of righteousness is life, and in its pathway there is no death.”  Proverbs 12:28

“…For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.”  Matthew 6:13

 

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.

 

Sword Of The Spirit

Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of My mouth.

Jesus in Revelation 2:16 (KJV)

“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

“Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”    Hebrews 4:12, 16 (NIV)

Ephesians 6:17 (NIV), “Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”

BibleGateway

Father God, may Your Word, Your Spirit be lifted up above every other teaching, only because You love us so much and know what’s best for us.  Thank You, Father for the Pastor’s wisdom this morning: if we lived in a country where being Christian was against the law and the Police were hired to put us in jail & take away our rights – as it is right now in some countries! – how would we feel about the Police?  – This is how many people of color feel about the Police, because of what has been done to us and our friends in the past and the most recent crime. A special sensitivity. 

Repentance & Revival

Ezra 8:21-23

“So we fasted and entreated our God for this, and He answered our prayer” Vs. 23

Jesus, You are the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Because You gave Your life on the cross for our sins’ forgiveness, we have life.

We don’t want to go on without You, like Moses, we can’t do anything with out You. We need You, Jesus, we need to see Your face, be in Your Presence, Hallelujia

TV in Window Sill – Prophetic Dream

“my heart teaches me in the night seasons” 

Psalm 16:7

Dream: a television in the sill of an open window, facing outside. Someone in the room said, ‘we can turn it around.’  I said, “what happens when it rains?”

  • The open window symbol stands for an opportunity
  • Rain is the Holy Spirit
  • Television can be a voice for God or a distraction

LORD God, we need Your Spirit, to heard You.  Let us prepare a place for You in our lives, honor Your written word above all other teaching and honor Your Holy spoken word to us because our lives depend on You. Thank You for Ravi Zacharias and all Your holy teachers over the years, in Jesus’ name.

Power Belongs to God

2 Timothy 1:7, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

“God has spoken once, twice I have heard this:

That power belongs to God.”

Psalm 62:11

“And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and signs among the people.”

Acts 6:8

Dear Lord God, when we feel little, You are there, great, loving Father who knows our needs.  You are strong and on our side.
