You Shall Surpass!

…Cry aloud, You who have not labored with child!

For more are the children of the desolate, Than the children of the married woman,” says the Lord. Isaiah 54:1

 

 

This is a direct command from God to offer a sacrificial praise to Him in the midst of unfruitfulness!

He is speaking to the ones that have tried over and over again to make it happen but couldn’t. The disappointed, the bitter and broken. It may seem like your life has been a vicious repeat and a Groundhog day from hell, but God is quickening you by His Spirit to CRY OUT in praise to Him for the very thing that there is no evidence of…,your fruitfulness!

The Word of God says

Now, Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the EVIDENCE of things unseen (Hebrews 11:1)

The very thing we do not see, by FAITH we have assurance that it exists! And notice here in Hebrews it says NOW FAITH IS! This is a now, current and present belief and assurance that we have it already!

So knowing this we can praise God in advance of the manifestation! Start praising him now for the miracle, start rejoicing now for the breakthrough! God is turning your sorrow into joy, your bitter into sweet and your barrenness into fruitfulness!

You will make it, you SHALL NOT die! You will have what God says you will have! You shall see the goodness of God in the land of the living!

Your results will surpass those who had all the “right stuff” to make it! Your harvest will be greater! Your marriage will be greater! Your children will be taught of the Lord! Your Healing will be Greater!

It’s no news baby when a married couple has a newborn, but it will make WORLD news when a barren woman gives birth!

Let God glorify Himself in you today! Hallelujah!

Prayer: Father, today I yield myself to be used as a living display of your Glory. No matter how much it hurts or how challenging it may be, I trust you God! Help me today to focus on your Goodness instead of the situation. In Jesus name , Amen.

Breaking Ungodly soul ties

couple_tied1There are false messages that we are trained in believing from a child into our adulthood ,which affect our current reality. We take those lies and make them a present reality.

This causes us to walk in fear because of the lies that the enemy told us.

So, what we do in reality( in that false reality) is we try to fix things within ourselves that can only be fixed by God.

God wants us to replace those lies with the Word of God….which is reality!

 These messages cause us To walk in fear instead of the fruit of the spirit, which in turn leads us into an ungodly soul tie relationship ,which becomes idolatry.

The key to this is in John 14 chapter 6 where Jesus says onto them I am the way the truth and the life no man comes unto the father but by me. Jesus said I am the way the truth and the reality! You have been on the wrong path but I am the way I am the course that you belong on! You cannot separate God from his word according to John chapter 1 it says in the beginning of the Word was God and the Word was with God and the Word was God.

The word is my reality …not my injury …

not my childhood

not the way I was raised

not the trauma

not my past.

If you don’t get the lies corrected by the Word of God  you will have eight marriages, you’ll be on drugs,you’ll be addicted to fear, addicted to pornography, losing your mind, committing suicide and depressed.

The first and the number one job for us to do is to  acknowledge the lie!

 You have got to get real with yourself!

Acknowledge the lie! Get your head out of the sand and acknowledge the lie that you have been living.

“Why do I do what I do?”

Leviticus chapter 26:40- 42. If they shall confess their iniquity…

 Iniquity is Beyond a sin where I’ve missed the mark. It’s a tendency to sin that has a stronghold on you.

God says  acknowledge, and then He will remember His covenant. He said confess AND repent= change your mind.

The next step is you have to Reject it.

Casting down imaginations in every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God!

God said that we are to take authority over it .When he said that no weapon formed against us shall prosper and every tongue that rises against us and judgment we shall condemn. That includes the tongues of demonic spirits  not just people!

So the minute the lie comes I have to acknowledge it and reject it by the blood of Jesus. Declaring…

” I reject the lie that Satan is saying to me by the blood of Jesus ,and I send complication and confusion into the enemies camp.”
After you acknowledge and reject it then you have to replace it with the word of God.

Joshua 1:8  Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.

You have to meditate and do the word. Fill yourself with the word.

DECLARE NOW!
I am fearfully and wonderfully made  Psalm 139:14
I am his workmanship created in Christ Jesus unto good works Ephesians 2:10

 Nobody owns me I’m yielding  my gifts for their benefit.

I am victorious I am established to the end.

Nobody can take me out I already win!

I am called by God.

I’m not entitled I’m empowered !

Deuteronomy 28 :2 All these blessings will come upon you and accompany you if you obey the LORD your God:  

 The blessing will overtake me I don’t have to go looking for blessing.

God’s presence is my priority!

Colossians 2:10 I am complete in him!

Prayer: Father in the name of Jesus, we lift up the false message of ___________ to you and acknowledge it for the lie that it is. Lord we declare right now in Jesus name, that we receive your Word as reality in our life and by faith we replace all false messages, spoken over us and/or believed as true, with Your Word. From this point forward God, we will reject any thoughts or spoken words over us, that would try and lead us back to the false messages of satan. We plead the blood of Jesus Christ the Anointed one over our mind, will and emotions therefore demolishing any and all ungodly soul tie that has tried to keep us bound. We declare freedom and victory in Jesus name, AMEN!!! Hallelujah!

Warning! Foolishness present

warning

Proverbs 14:7 Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge.

Have you ever been in a situation where someone is talking some crazy stuff either around you or to you, and you find yourself actualy LISTENING to them?

This verse really ministered to me this week! When I read it … THIS is what I heard! “If someone is spouting out foolishness to you or around you RUN…HURRY AND GET AWAY from that person!

Well, I can tell you one thing I put my track shoes to good use this week. (smile)You see when you meditate on God’s word you become more alert and sensitive spiritually to what’s really going on around you.

I started asking God, “Lord why did you say that?” and I began to search the Word to find my answer. First of all God instructed us in Proverbs 4:23 Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life. We have to guard our hearts because whatever goes into it, comes out of it and manifests in our lives.

Secondly,we have a responsibility to watch what we are listening to because faith comes by HEARING and HEARING BY THE WORD of GOD!

Third, it is also vital that we practice the presence of God and not that of fools!

What is a fool? Psalm 53:1a says 1The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Notice it says that the fool says in his HEART, there is no God. So what this should tell us is that They may or may not be just out-rightly saying “God isn’t real” but the words they are speaking are contrary to the truth of God’s word because of their heart condition…. unregenerated!

Today now more than ever we hear people in the movies, on the radio and talk-show hosts spewing out foolishness like, “There are many paths to God” . If we aren’t rooted and grounded in the Word of God, we could become susceptible to this foolish talk; many already are and have been turned from their faith. You see the fool actually believes that WE are the fools and that they are the ones with all the wisdom. Look at what Paul said in 1 Corinthians 1:23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling-block, and unto the Greeks foolishness. But Glory be to God at what he says next…

23We preach Christ (the Messiah) crucified, [preaching which] to the Jews is a scandal and an offensive stumbling block [that springs a snare or trap], and to the Gentiles it is absurd and utterly unphilosophical nonsense.

24But to those who are called, whether Jew or Greek (Gentile), Christ [is] the Power of God and the Wisdom of God.

25[This is] because the foolish thing [that has its source in] God is wiser than men, and the weak thing [that springs] from God is stronger than men.

26For [simply] consider your own call, brethren; not many [of you were considered to be] wise according to human estimates and standards, not many influential and powerful, not many of high and noble birth.

27[No] for God selected (deliberately chose) what in the world is foolish to put the wise to shame, and what the world calls weak to put the strong to shame. Hallelujah!

Prayer:

Father , thank you for choosing me before the foundation of the world to be conformed to the image of your Son Jesus. Father help us as believers to stay away from idle and foolish talk. Strengthen us to walk away from conversations that are contrary to the truth of YOUR word. Help us to continually practice your presence, by reading and studying your Word and by listening only to the things that line up with your Word; thereby building up our faith in you and not in the things of this world. We give you all the honor and glory and praise for it in Jesus name.

Amen


Ready,Set, Go!

I think that the way church services are held are a pretty far cry from the way Jesus intended for them to be. I mean, think about it. You have your praise and worship, announcements, tithe and offering then finally after all of that you get to hear God’s word.  Oddly enough they may actually only give 20-25 minutes of Scripture and teaching out of the 3 -4 hours you attend!!!.That’s a lot of time spent AT church!

I believe that church should be more along the lines of a huddle in a football game. People should get together on Sunday and receive the Message that is being taught, then immediately following,Leaders should appoint teams or groups.After the Teams have been established and zones designated, they should go out into the communities and give the message they just received.Bringing souls into the Kingdom of God.

But what normally happens? You go to church spend half the day there, (while looking at your watch to see if it’s past time for the lunch buffet at Golden Corral ) and then you go home. If you are halfway serious about Evangelism you might even tell someone who calls you, what your Pastor preached about today. THIS HAS GOT TO STOP folks!

What did our Lord commission us to do? What is our mission here while we are on planet Earth?

The Word of God says…”Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. He told them, ‘This is what is written: The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things.'” (Luke 24:45-48).  “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation“( Mark 16:15)

You see, we were never meant to just sit around and get fat off the Word and then keep it to ourselves.Many of us don’t even realize the fact that a lot of the people who need to be ministered to will NEVER step foot in a church. They are either too scared of being judged and offended by us or they are too wounded spiritually. Even if you invite everyone in your cell phone or email address book to come to church with you, how many of them actually accept those invitations?  Thought so…

I have been working on a ministry plan of action called “Ready, Set, Go!”

Ready- All members congregate at the sanctuary and receive the message for the day. Readying or preparing themselves for the mission at hand.

Set- or “appoint” Leaders and teams. Equipping them with appropriate ministry tools for the mission ( Tracts, bibles to give out, candy or small toys for children etc.)

Go- Get on those busses or vans or bikes or whatever transportation your church has and get into the field to bring people the Good news about Jesus!

Just imagine what our communities would start to be like if ALL the churches in each of our communities would ban together on Sundays, sharing their resources with each other to get this mission accomplished! WoW, that would be beautiful praise God!

What do you think? Better yet… what will you do?

Missing the mark!

Last night I was watching a Pastor teaching a message on TV. As I was listening to the message I thought about someone that I had a “strong disagreement” with that day and said to myself” Man THEY need to be listening to this!”

It was at that point that the Lord stopped me in my critical tracks and said

” When you are reading, or listening to My Word, focus on how it applies to YOU first!”  I was like WOW! I started to think about the NUMEROUS occasions that I had been sitting in church, hearing a message and then said the same thing ..” So and so should have been here today!” As if God hadn’t intended on my being there to hear it for me!

It really made me think about how many things I have missed out on that God was trying to say to me because I wasn’t listening… for me! How many changes could have come through obeying what He was trying to say …to ME!

So today before i began reading my Bible I prayed and asked God to help me focus on what He is trying to say to ME through His Word.

Thank you Jesus!
