Pursue God

1 Peter 2:2-3 (NKJV), “Beloved, I beg you as sojourners & pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul, having your conduct honorable among the gentiles, that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may, by your good works which they observe, glorify God in the day of visitation.”

Philippians 4:8 (NKJV), “Whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.” (TD Jakes quoted this verse the other day).

  • “You have the mind of Christ” 1 Corinthians 2:16
  • “We are made in His image, male and female” Genesis 1:27
  • Be like your Father in heaven, perfect” Matthew 5:48.

Prepare to Fight

O Father God, motivate our hearts for Your spiritual battle. Teach us to fast & pray: we lift up the unbelievers & half-hearted followers, so they don’t believe in money anymore, and forsake all belongings & materialism.  Give them Holy Spirit fire. Let them be fired in the natural, from their old lives and fired with God’s love.

Malachi 3:3, “He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; he will purify the Levites and refine them like gold and silver. Then the LORD will have men who will bring offerings in righteousness,”

It’s not going to be what you thought, but it’s going to be amazing.

 

 

 

“Meet Me”

…the Lord said this in the Spirit about attending the other church the next day: a Sunday.

There I met the LORD God, when an announcement was made for a special speaker the following week. That day, a friend’s daughter was admitted to the Emergency Room.  She agreed to go to the conference if she was released in time.  We did all attend, the message seemed to be specifically for each one of us.

Have you ever been scattered, discombobulated, lost?  Come to Him.

Matt 11:28-29 (NIV), “Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”

Psalm 119:176 (NIV), “I have strayed like a lost sheep. Seek your servant, for I have not forgotten your commands.”

Denying Its Power

For men will be... having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” 2 Timothy 3:2a, 5-7 (NKJV).

Father God can forgive all these things. He Who abundantly forgives (Isaiah 55:7).

Where Are You Going?

“Enoch walked with God; then he was not there because God took him.” Genesis 5:24 (KJV).

“And he said, Hagar, Sarai’s maid, whence camest thou? and whither wilt thou go? And she said, I flee from the face of my mistress Sarai.” Genesis 16:8 (KJV).

“It’s a painful business to get thru into the stride of God…Spiritual truth is learned by atmosphere, not by intellectual reasoning.” by Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest, October 12, “Getting Into God’s Stride.”

The fountain runs deep & never dries out.

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

Dear Lord Father, You complete us, we need You everyday.  Help me to serve You whole heartedly and never lose faith.

Take It

Jesus says:

Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Matt 11:29 (NIV).

“While they were eating, Jesus took some bread, and after a blessing, He broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is My body.” And when He had taken a cup and given thanks, He gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you; for this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins.” Matthew 26:26-28.

“Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.” John 20:22 (NIV).

Revelation 5:7 (NIV), “Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing at the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders. The Lamb had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth.
He went and took the scroll from the right hand of him who sat on the throne.”

 

“You’ll Go Through the Fire”

In the spirit, I heard this a few weeks ago, at first it was unsettling.  When the Lord gives us a heads up, we can prepare our hearts.  Then I found these verses below:

Isaiah 43:2 (KJV), “When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.”

Psalm 66:12 (KJV), “Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.”

Rev 3:18 (NIV), “I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.”

1 Corinthians 3:15 (NIV), “If it is burned up, the builder will suffer loss but yet will be saved–even though only as one escaping through the flames.”

 

I Choose Joy

Acts 3:8-9 (NKJV), “So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them—walking, leaping, and praising God. And all the people saw him walking and praising God.

Luke 2:20 (NKJV), “Then the shepherds returned, glorifying & praising God for all the things that they had heard & seen, as it was told them.”

2 Samuel 6:14 (KJV), “And David danced before the LORD with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod.”

Psalm 150:4-6 (KJV), “Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.

Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals.

Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.”

“It Is Done”

The Lord said this after a time of interceding for some friends.

John 19:30 (NIV), “When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.”

God is so faithful, much more than we are.  Though His days are like a thousand years and a thousand years are like a day.  Don’t worry, He’s got this, whatever you need or are praying for. Just trust Him, to complete it.

Take this ‘word’ for yourselves and whatever you’re believing Father God for.
