JESUS Name Above All Names!

JESUS! What a powerful, precious name to be on our lips and in our hearts. There is something about just speaking that name in all of our circumstances and wherever we are. There is power in the name of Jesus!

God Himself gave Jesus His name. His name holds power, grace, love, redemption, healing, deliverance and much more.

“…God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:9-11)

As we speak the name of Jesus, our thoughts and attention are drawn away from all the turmoil around us and we are able to focus on the One who can calm the storm…and has given us the authority and power to calm the storm in His name!

Oh my friends! Do you carry the name of Jesus? Do you carry His presence? Are you walking as an ambassador of Christ?

Vision: I see a huge rubber stamp like one that is used to stamp a signature onto a letter or official document. I see the name of JESUS being stamped upon me! And dear friends the name of Jesus is upon you if you have accepted Him as your Lord and Savior.

Prayer: Dearest Jesus, thank You for calling me Your own! Thank You for placing Your name upon me and inviting me to walk this journey with You! Amen!

Celebrate JESUS!!

Sitting at the kitchen window peeling eggs for deviled eggs. I am really enjoying the peaceful view and observing the occasional shadow of a large bird passing overhead. Yesterday, I glanced out this same window and observed a fox running full kilter past the window and then he was gone!

I speak peace and joy over you dear friends & family as you prepare for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Remember the reason for the season – celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. HE is our PEACE…our JOY…our HOPE…our LOVE!!

Don’t let the “busyness” of the day draw your focus away from Him. Breathe deep and KNOW that He is beside you, behind you, before you, and within you. REST in that assurance, dear friends!! I love you…but HE loves you even more!! CELEBRATE JESUS!! ❤️💥💥❤️

I Will Give Thanks!

With my mouth I will give thanks abundantly to the LORD ; And in the midst of many I will praise Him. (Psalms 109:30 NASB)

May we not be silent this day and in the days ahead. May ALL who are around us know Who we thank and Who we praise!

This is not just in Church…but everywhere that we happen to be! WE are the Church!!

Our Thanksgiving and Praise should not be shaped and molded by where we are or what circumstances we may find ourselves in.

Our Thanksgiving and Praise is a response to WHO GOD IS!

This Scripture says, With my mouth…” Thanksgiving and Praise is meant to be SPOKEN!

Out of our hearts, our mouths speak. (Based on Luke 6:45).

What is in our hearts today? May our words express our love of our God!

A NEW SEASON

A NEW SEASON

The Lord keeps reminding me that I/we are in a new season in His Kingdom. 

I have been trying to go through my clothes and donate those that do not need to go with me in this new spiritual season of ministry and life.

A few days ago I felt a strong call to get my desk and file cabinets in order (I have one 4 drawer and one 2 drawer). Oh, the precious nuggets I am finding – lost and hidden in all of the miscellaneous “stuff.” 

How many precious things of the Lord are lost and hidden among all of the things we felt needed to be held onto?

I feel that the Lord is calling me to sift through a lot of things of the past because I need to make room for all of the things He is bringing into my life NOW!!  PRAISE GOD!!

I find myself becoming excited as I organize past sermons, devotions, teachings, prophetic words, prayers, and ministry events that the Lord used me to minister in for His glory and for the equipping of His Church!  I am excited because as I am doing this I KNOW that I am making room for what is coming!!

Brothers & Sisters!  Do you have room in your life for the NEW that the Lord wants to bring you?  Is it time for you to do an inventory – physical and spiritual – and CLEAN OUT those things that will hold you back from receiving God’s abundance?

LORD!! Help us to weed out all of those things that clutter up our lives to the point that we can’t move quickly and freely with You into our future. Help us to prune our lives of “dead things” that do not promote NEW LIFE!  Help us to speak LIFE to others and also to ourselves!

LORD!!  You are the most precious thing in our lives!!  May we not let anything take YOUR place!! May every decision we make come from embracing YOUR heart, YOUR perspective, YOUR love, and YOUR will!!

LORD!!  We are ready to go forward with You!

Leaving old things behind…

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”     ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭43:18-19‬ ‭NIV‬‬

 

 

VISION

…for God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.

(1 Samuel 16:7)

We must be careful to not take people and circumstances at “face value”. What we see with our fleshly eyes is not necessarily what the LORD sees!

LORD, may we have Your eyes and Your Vision that we may see things as they really are.

May You continue to improve my Vision, Lord!! May You align my vision to YOUR Vision. I not only want to HEAR You, but I want to SEE with Your eyes! I want to FEEL what You feel! I want to SPEAK Your Word! Mold and shape me, Lord, into a vessel that is filled to overflowing with Your LOVE!! In the mighty name of Jesus I pray. AMEN!

WAVEWALKER!!

I find that I go through periods of focusing on a certain praise/worship song. Do you do that?

For the past couple of weeks, my attention has been on the song “Wavewalker” by Citizen Way. The first time I heard it, my joy soared and I couldn’t help but dance!!

“When I keep my eyes upon You, Jesus-I’m a wavewalker!!”🌊🌊

Walk in the authority and power that Jesus is calling you to, mighty men & women of God!!💥💥💥
