WAKE UP! RISE UP!!

 I hear the LORD this morning speaking to all of His Churches:

WAKE UP! RISE UP!! I HAVE WORK FOR YOU TO DO!

WAKE UP! RISE UP!! I AM LOOKING FOR DOERS OF MY WORD!

WAKE UP! RISE UP!! DON’T LIVE IN THE PAST! STEP FORWARD INTO YOUR DESTINY!!

WAKE UP! RISE UP!! JOIN ME MY PRECIOUS BRIDE! THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR A DEMONSTRATION OF MY POWER AND GLORY AND LOVE!!

“For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power.” 1 Corinthians‬ ‭4:20‬

“Blessed …are those who hear the word of God and obey it.” Luke 11:28

“After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.” Acts 4:31

“For the word of God is alive and active!!” Hebrews 4:12

STEP OVER!

[vision]    I saw many approaching a door that the Lord had placed in front of them…doors of opportunity; doors of increase; doors of advancement; doors of leadership…

In the vision as they approached the door, the threshold was so big it was as a wall within the door.

As I looked, I saw the threshold begin to decrease in size quickly…to the point that it was easy to step over and go through the door!

Threshold= a strip of wood, metal, or stone forming the bottom of a doorway and crossed in entering a house or room.

A threshold is what you step across when you enter a room. A threshold takes you from one place into another, and when you’re about to start something new, you’re also on a threshold. 

synonyms:  doorway, entrance, entry, door, gate, gateway, portal…

[interpretation]     As our faith rises to the point of taking that step forward and leaving behind those things that are holding us back – we will see that wall that is obstructing our ability to cross the threshold into our New Season begin to decrease.

As we draw closer and closer to the Lord and closer and closer to our destiny in the Kingdom – we will come to the place of being able to step over the threshold and crossover into a place of New Beginning.  I see the threshold becoming smaller as we continue forward and not look back.  Our commitment to KEEP GOING in spite of opposition is what will bring us to the door.  The armor of God in place and His praise upon our lips is the key to entering in.

Beloved of God – put on the HELMET OF SALVATION, the BELT OF TRUTH, the BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, and SHOES READY WITH THE GOSPEL OF PEACE!

Take up the SHIELD OF FAITH, and the SWORD OF THE SPIRIT!

PRAY AT ALL TIMES IN THE SPIRIT!

KEEP ALERT and GET READY to STEP OVER THE THRESHOLD!!

It’s Time To Move FORWARD!!

I am sitting here this morning listening to the thunder and rain and drinking my coffee. As I was looking at my photos, I came across this one and immediately felt the heart of God for those that are getting over a painful experience (or trying to).

Ahhhhh Beloved, the Lord hears your cries! He feels your pain! But, He is ready to walk with you out of this place of suffering. It is indeed time for you to “let go.” He will use this time to help you grow.

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. Romans‬ ‭8:28‬ ‭ESV‬‬

He doesn’t want you to stay in that place of suffering. He has so much awaiting you! It’s time to take that step forward!

Go Into All The World!

We don’t have to travel thousands of miles to obey The Lord to “Go into all the world…”

The world is wherever we find ourselves at any given moment: in our homes; in our workplaces; in our churches; or simply going about our daily errands.

Yes, some are called to far off regions…but some are called to their own communities.

Both are needed and both are important!!

May we walk in boldness, power, authority and love wherever The Lord has placed us!!

GOD LOVES!!

[2015 repost]

Yesterday morning I was getting dressed for us to go to breakfast with my friend Carol’s mother, Sylvia. I was talking with God and worshipping with my praise music as I usually do every morning.

I began to feel that God was telling me that I was to pray for our waitress at breakfast (I have done this before). And, of course, I told Him yes!

We drove to The Waffle House…but when we entered into the restaurant, we discovered there were no seats available and we were going to have to wait.

Carol and Sylvia decided that we would go to Denny’s which was pretty close. This was not a restaurant that they usually went to…but, this day, we were going!

At Denny’s, we were seated and quickly waited upon by a smiling, happy waitress. This was her! I knew that I would be praying for this joyful woman! I also knew that it would be when she brought our breakfast.

As we were waiting for our order and enjoying our time together, we noticed the two women in the booth behind us were asking for the manager. They were sitting close enough that we couldn’t help but hear of their dissatisfaction with their service. And their waitress was our waitress!

When our waitress, Tanya, came back to bring coffee and fill our water glasses – it was like a different woman had taken over! The smile was gone, a deep sadness rested upon her, and her body even seemed to be slumped over as if carrying a heavy burden.

As she left, we joined in prayer for her…but I knew that my assignment from the Lord was not complete. I still would connect with her when our order was brought to the table.

The two women finished up…got their take home boxes…but didn’t leave. I found myself praying, “Lord, if she brings our order while they are still here, do I still go ahead and speak with her?”

I knew immediately as an answer that we would not get our order until they were gone.

A few minutes later, the women got up and left. Within 2 minutes, our waitress began slowly walking to our table with the big platter of food. She sadly and slowly began placing everything before us and then picked up the platter to leave.

“Tanya, put down the platter…I would like to talk to you.” She put it down and slowly came closer to me.

“I would like to tell you a story” and I began sharing with her of how God told me I was to pray for her that morning.

“Tanya, I know what has happened this morning. Your worth is not dependent on what your job is. Your worth is because of who you are! You are a precious, beloved, daughter of the Most High King! You are beautiful and treasured! He hears you and He sees you. The Lord loves you so much, He made sure I was here in this place, at this time, so I could tell you how important you are to Him!”

With tears streaming down her face, she hugged me and told me thank you! We once again had our smiling, joyful waitress back! And she knew in a very tangible way at that moment how much God loved her!!

Oh, my friends! May we be intentional about taking the time to not only speak TO God in our prayers…but take the time to LISTEN to Him speaking to us!

Prayer is a conversation…and God desires for us to join Him in reaching out to others in love. Who would He like for you to show His love to today? Ask Him…

TAKE THE LEAP!!

The New Year is upon us!

I hear the Lord calling us to a deeper faith…a stronger faith…a focused faith.

We are being called to take a leap of faith! We are being propelled by the power of the Holy Spirit to leave our “comfort zone” and make a leap into our future!

I see the Lord lifting us up and above those things that would hold us down, The wind of the Holy Spirit will carry us over those places that seem impossible to navigate.

Don’t look down…don’t focus on your ability to make the jump! Look up!! Focus on the Lord and HIS ability!

Get ready!! Focus!! Breathe deeply and let the breath of God fill your lungs!!

TAKE THE LEAP!!
