I AM CALLING YOU!

I hear the Lord saying:

“My Spirit within you makes you MORE than a conqueror–so don’t settle for just getting by.

My Spirit within you equips you to do GREATER works than I did while walking this earth–so don’t underestimate your value in the kingdom.

Stop trusting your ability and start trusting MINE!

I AM calling you…”

Barometer or Thermostat?

[sigh]. Why do we have to lose electricity every time there is a rain storm or there is one close by. (It’s not even raining here!). 😟

And I feel the Lord giving me a spiritual application:
We can be affected by what is going on around us – even if it’s not happening to us directly! The spiritual atmosphere can cause spiritual consequences. So, the solution?

CHANGE THE ATMOSPHERE!

May we be thermostats and not simply barometers. May we not only discern what is going on spiritually – but may we change the spiritual atmosphere and temperature! 

 Yes, Lord!!!

May Our Walk be Worthy!

May you “walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience; joyously giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints of Light.”

Colossians 1:10-12

NEW YEAR – 2017

IT’S A NEW YEAR!

It’s time to leave behind those things that have bound you up;

that have kept you from living the life that God has called you to live;

that have caused you to live in darkness instead of light.

IT’S A NEW YEAR!

It’s time to tune our hearing to God’s frequency of sound;

to tune out the sounds of disharmony, disunity, and disappointment.  

IT’S A NEW YEAR!

It’s time to rise up and discard our dead, unproductive life habits

and embrace a life of faith, power, and love.

IT’S A NEW YEAR!

BE RELEASED INTO YOUR DESTINY!


HEART CHECK

…the things that proceed out of the mouth come from the heart…(Matthew 15:18)

I think it is time for me to do a “heart check!” I believe it is important for us to pay attention to what comes out of our mouths. Our words have power! There is life and death in the tongue! (Proverbs 18:21) It is so easy to just let complaints and words of doubt and criticism flow all during our day. Forgive me, Lord!

The Lord pays attention to what we say (and the enemy does, too)…and we need to pay attention to the words that we allow ourselves to speak!

Dearest Lord, I pray that Your Holy Spirit will be a filter over my mouth. May I say only those things that speak LIFE and FAITH and TRUTH! Help me, Lord, to think before I speak. May I let no unwholesome word proceed from [my] mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear.”(Ephesians 4:29) 

May Your words flow through me, Jesus! May I speak from a transformed heart…a heart that beats in time with Yours. Speak through me this day…and all the days that follow. Sanctify and anoint this mouth to speak forth Your Word!!

Thank You, Lord!!
