SOAK

Heard this in my spirit the first day after planting starter vegetables in the garden, telling me to provide plenty of water.

A friend recently expounded: “Let the tiny roots find their way and spread out receiving nutrients, giving life to the plant’s growth.”

Mark 4:28 (KJV) “For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.”

“[The Bible training College’s] entire strength lies in the fact that here you are immersed in the truths of God to soak in them before Him.” Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest, October 19th.

 

 

 

 

 

Fulfilling the Law

“But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, ‘They hated Me without a cause.'” Jesus in John 15:25

Matthew 3:14-15:

 “And John tried to prevent Him, saying, ‘I need to be baptized by You, and are You coming to me?’

“But Jesus answered and said to him, ‘Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.’ Then he allowed Him.”

Matthew 5:17-18:

“Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.

“For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.”

“I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of His body, which is the church, of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God…”                                                                 Colossians 1:24-25

“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.”                                            Matt 17:20

Beautiful Tapestry

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; 

“Before you were born I sanctified you:

“I ordained you a prophet to the nations”

Jeremiah 1:5

You are the red thread,

in the beautiful journey that is your life, interwoven with all the other colors that make up the whole.

“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” Psalm 119:105

Stop and Smell the Rose

“I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.” Song 2:1 (NKJV)

“I am the Vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.” Jesus says in John 15:5.

“He indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you who through Him believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.” 1 Peter 1:20-21.

“For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth…” Colossians 1:16

The Lord Has Kept Me Alive

“And now, behold, the Lord has kept me alive, as He said, these forty-five years, ever since the Lord spoke this word to Moses while Israel wandered in the wilderness; and now, here I am this day, eighty-five years old.” Caleb says to Joshua 14:10 (NKJV)

No one will stand in your way when God has made a way. You are a son or daughter of He Who rules the universe! Amen. Though others meant evil toward you, God means to for good (Gen 50:20).

Psalm 41:2, “The LORD will protect him and keep him alive, And he shall be called blessed upon the earth; And do not give him over to the desire of his enemies.”

 

Time is Short Prophecy

Wash people’s feet, many people will be undone

Keep doing it, our title is Servant

You have compassion, like the cotton in a pill bottle, it keeps the pills from being harmed.

People want more of that.

  • Jesus washing the disciples’ feet (John 13:3-17)
  • God’s servants (Matt 20:25-28)
  • Compassion (Matt 18:27, 33)
  • Shortness of time (Matt 25:13, Revelation 22:12)

Praise God, above is part of  a prophecy given to me last month. I can stay focused on God and His word, look for ways to serve others and communicate God’s love to them. People want Jesus not us, but we who’ve been with Him, reflect His compassion.

“Prayer & Fasting”

Heard this in my spirit when contemplating some circumstances.

Jesus says, “this kind goes out only by prayer & fasting.” (Matt 17:21)

Do you try to look beyond circumstances? Because in the Spirit God’s doing far greater things than the part of the picture we see (1 Corinthians 13:12).

My Utmost for His Highest, October 3rd, “When you are brought face to face with a difficult situation and nothing happens externally, you can still know that freedom and release will be given because of your continued concentration on Jesus Christ…face it and get through it into the presence of Jesus Christ. Then that very problem itself, and all that you have been through in connection with it, will glorify Jesus Christ in a way that you will never know until you see Him face to face.”

***Please ask your Pastor before beginning a fast***

My former church proclaimed corporate fasts for the new year and other special occasions. 

Recently, the Lord led me to fasting and praying on Saturdays. Usually it’s sporadic lasting one to three days. I drink tea in the morning, then water during the day and whenever the hunger pangs arise.  Reading the Word and devotionals, singing worship songs and praying, going about the day.

  • James 4:8 (NKJV), “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
  • Matthew 6:16-18, Jesus says, “When you fast…”
  • Isaiah 58, “…is this not the fast that I have chosen:…to let the oppressed go free…”

 

 

You Have To Forgive Yourself

The Lord spoke this to me while waiting for prayer at a service.  It hadn’t occurred to me yet, because I was focusing on forgiving the other person.

“Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.”

Ephesians 4:29-32 (NKJV)

“Love your neighbor as yourself,” says Jesus, Mark 12:31 

“Submitting to one another in the fear of God.” Ephesians 5:21
