Be Praying People, Purpose and Plans of God

Pause Everything and Pray – A Word of Encouragement and Wisdom from the Lord

PAUSE EVERYTHING AND PRAY

This is for some of you and you will know by the Spirit what “everything” refers to (as in not literally everything to the point that family/needs are neglected). 

It’s a set apart time of prayer and seeking Him in the Word to hear clearly from God on the things you are currently working on, so you know what to prioritize right now as well as each day.

This time of prayer, maybe one day, a few days, a week, etc. is to:

  • Bring clarity, wisdom, and discernment.
  • To give you eyes to see where the distractions are, things that you are working on that are not of God or not for now but later.
  • Recalibrate with God on matters in your life.
  • To show you where you might be wasting your time (e.g. It’s time to shake the dust off your feet for some people you’ve tried to help because they won’t submit to God, obey Him, seek Him themselves or take any responsibility on their part; does not include special needs people of course. The Holy Spirit will show you).
  • To prepare the way for your God assignments.
  • Bring His will for the situation into the earth as it is in heaven but won’t happen according to His best for you without this prayer time
  • Bring favor, break strongholds, move obstacles, bring divine connections, bring needed provision, etc.
  • Possibly reveal a “new thing” to you or new assignment.

In your personal, set apart prayer time, God may show show you more and open up specifically to you, by His Holy Spirit, additional reasons why this time is needed. 

Thank You, Lord, for Your faithfulness and kindness towards us to lead us in all seasons what we are to do in order to fulfill our purposes and plans for our lives and for Your glory. We bless Your Holy name. All glory and honor and praise to You, O God!

When God Removes People, Let Them Go & Bless Them (and Some Practical Takeaways)

WHEN GOD REMOVES PEOPLE

Recently, due to a sister’s gross misinterpretations of the intentions of my heart towards her, she refuses to speak to me and blocked me on a social media account. 

Long story short, she posted a quote by someone else, then commented what seemed to be her confusion about it. And me, wanting to be helpful, decided to message her with what I thought would be helpful, relevant information, and would protect her from pain and seeing God in a wrong light about something.

Yikes!

Sadly, she interpreted it as a criticism of her directly and not simply commentary and the help I thought she needed about the quote she posted about, and the more I tried to make it better, thinking I was still being helpful – ugh – the worst I made it. She was very upset and hurt even though, heart before God, it was only my intentions to help.

She said I should have asked her (as in) if she needed help. I told her she was right.

Takeaway 

If you’re a helpful person like me and someone seems like they are reaching out for help, re-ask if he/she is truly asking or needs help to give them a chance to say yes or no. It could save a lot of trouble.

I should have prayed  for wisdom and discernment before answering her initial reply where she misinterpreted me criticizing her, but I felt so bad about unintentionally doing so that I replied immediately.

Wrong move. Sorry Jesus. In all my ways acknowledge Him. So I failed on that.

Things seemed clarified and resolved until I received several more very upset replies from her later falsely accusing me and reading negative things that weren’t there into my words and then once again saying I was criticizing her, and then she added, “coming at her,” and of me having fury.

Silly Me

I still tried to fix it, explain, and thinking I was being helpful but continued to make it worse.

Takeaway

Once again, if I had paused and prayed, I would have been able to see the enemy, author of confusion, at work in all this, and then answered the next day after I’d spent time praying about it, for her, and myself. And I would have been able to discern and have eyes to see that she’d already “felt” attacked (false imaginations) from the get-go and nothing I said or did could fix it.

His Mercies are New Every Morning

I, of course, was hurt and upset, and brought it before the Lord, because, even though I unintentionally hurt her feelings, she also falsely accused me as above and more. But I had clarity and peace about it all the next day because truly my heart was right in the matter before her and the Lord.

When I Prayed, the Lord Showed Me 

That even though my friend is going through a time of pain and grief, that it’s no excuse to falsely accuse people and that she should have put into practice what she was so adamant about preaching to me. That just as I should have asked her if she needed help and clarification before I assumed she did, that she should have also asked me if I was criticizing her, if I was coming at her, and if I was filled with fury towards her before she assumed I was. That her pain and grief blinded her to only be able to see her own feelings without regard to mine.

I couldn’t see any of these things before I prayed because I was just hurt, shocked, and confused. Of course, I already apologized multiple times during the conversations (before she cut me off) and forgave her before the Lord.

God Also Gave Me Eyes to See

In light of our two years of a very good friendship filled with love, support, and kindness, she so easily and readily forgot my true character and harshly assumed the worst about me.  The Lord knows that people who automatically assume the worst about me is one thing I cannot abide in relationships as this behavior and mindset is too similar to my earthly father’s who passed away a few years ago.

My father was so self-destructive, he drove the people closest to him away because he carried a terrible spirit of offense. No one could say anything to him, have a different opinion than him, tell him that his actions were hurting us without him feeling offended and then attacking us for things which there was no reason. He was blind to everyone else’s feelings in situations but his own. An “always walking on eggshells” relationship, and horribly, at times, that led him to threaten to harm us, raise his hand to hit us, and had hit my other a few times, etc.

Again, I couldn’t see any of this until I went to the Lord with it.

A Sign and Blessing in Disguise

After she blocked me, after all the crazy and confusion, within a few minutes, I saw a post on Facebook that read, “Not everyone that leaves our life was meant to stay. We can’t know how each person who walks into our life-what part they may play in it. It may be a moment, forever, a season, etc. but each one has a purpose. We will understand in Heaven.”

So, it’s a blessing in disguise that she cut me off because I cannot handle any relationships that even come close to how I had to approach my father, in fear, always worrying I’d offend him, make him angry, about all his false imaginations, and him most often assuming the worst about me instead of the best, etc. then getting blasted with false accusations based on those false imaginations.

Let Them Go & Bless Them

Since God allowed me to see that “sign” above within a few minutes about “not everyone that leaves our life was meant to stay,” I truly believe in this case that I may not hear from her for awhile, and if I do will have minimal contact, nothing above courtesies unless the Lord gives me peace for more because I’ve spent too many years of my past in dysfunctional relationships that God delivered me from to purposely allow it back.

So, Lord, I bless this sister of mine and wish her well, and I pray for her emotional healing and well being and for the root causes of her perceptual dysfunctions to also be healed. I messed up badly in not seeking You first before I responded to my sister, and I pray You bring this to my remembrance as often as needed, so I don’t repeat a mistake like this. And I break the spirit of offense off her and tell it to go now in Jesus’ name, amen.

P.S. No she doesn’t follow my blog. I mention it to friends to follow just once, they usually forget, and I never mention it again.

Be Bold, Simply Take God for His Word, and Magnify it Above Every Circumstance – Sun Stand Still – Joshua 10:12-14

Sun Stand Still

Then Joshua spoke to the Lord in the day when the Lord delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel:

Sun, stand still over Gibeon;
And Moon, in the Valley of Aijalon.”
So the sun stood still,
And the moon stopped,
Till the people had revenge
Upon their enemies.

Is this not written in the Book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day. And there has been no day like that, before it or after it, that the Lord heeded the voice of a man; for the Lord fought for Israel. – Joshua 10:12-14

For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. – 2 Chronicles 16:9

God’s eyes are looking throughout the whole earth for hearts who are loyal to Him and take Him for His Word.

Prayer

Father, by Your Holy Spirit, we loose Holy Spirit boldness to Your people. Grace them with faith that moves mountains. We believe, help, Lord, any unbelief. Let the words of our mouths magnify You above all things, all sickness, all disease, every trial and difficulty. Let us magnify and praise You and praise You for Your Word to pray for all matters concerning us in Jesus’ name, amen.

Healing, Prayer, Prophetic Word, Uncategorized

Word and Prayer from Psalm 37 and Isaiah 35:3-6

Prophetic Word and Prayer Ps 37 and Is 35 3-6 - PNG

Because we are one, I’m certain many of you have heard the word JUSTICE in your spirits. For me, it began last fall.

These are the scriptures the Lord gave after years Him leading me to pray for corruption to be driven from this land and the lands, to drive out ‘bought leaders’ and replace them with un-buyable, God fearing ones.

Last year, this is how Holy Spirit used Psalm 37 & Isaiah 35:3-6 to speak to me about this season of Justice – good for the righteous, very bad for the wicked…

Back around October 2018, the Holy Spirit emphasized the healing aspect of Isaiah 35:3-6 reminding me, “Jesus has come to with vengeance to destroy the works of the devil (sin, sickness, disease, abortion, etc.).

Healing in Jesus’ name is a form of God’s justice and vengeance against the enemy…

Isaiah 35:3-6 —

Strengthen the weak hands,
And make firm the feeble knees.
Say to those who are fearful-hearted,
“Be strong, do not fear!
Behold, your God will come with vengeance,
With the recompense of God;
He will come and save you.”

Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened,
And the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
Then the lame shall leap like a deer,
And the tongue of the dumb sing.
For waters shall burst forth in the wilderness,
And streams in the desert.

To save us and heal us is to bring justice from satanic oppression [Acts 10:38; Luke 13:16] he brought into the earth when Adam and Eve gave it to him through sin.

Stand and take your healing. Keep your eyes on His Word, not man’s, not man-made side doctrines, His Word alone.

  • Psalm 103:2-4, “Bless the Lord, O my soul and forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies.” Father, You forgive all my sins. You heal all my diseases. I take You for Your Word and choose to ignore everyone else’s unbelief. I will not call you a liar even if the entire world chooses to. All, You say, Lord. Not…but, except autism, not stage 4 cancer. All. Only believe. I slam the door right now on every lie against You, on every bad report, on every false doctrine. 

There are many more healing promises – facts, so I will stop there for now and get back to the word He gave.

Also, last fall the Lord said, “Psalm 37 justice is happening now and will continue to happen.” 

I know if you’re paying attention to the news, not the fake news, you are seeing this too.

On Thurs, 7/11, brought Psalm 37 and Isaiah 35:3-6 to me again…

We are still in the Psalm 37 season of justice.

More healing is happening and is to come.

But now, He also emphasizes the vengeance aspect of Isaiah 35:3-6. His justice is His vengeance. Our eyes will see this happening. This is regarding “earthly justice” (e.g. longtime pedophiles/wickedness in high places being brought to justice).

We are still called to pray for and minister to all the lost and hope they repent, so they will not have to receive eternal justice and damnation too. Earthly justice is separate from eternal justice. But their earthly justice is now.

God is angry at what the world has and is doing to our children. Exposure to perversion, wicked indoctrinations, the vast networks of pedophile rings and the never found children. Of course abortion.

The Lord says, “The millstones are about to hit the bottom of the sea for many.”

When the Lord so graciously gives us these words, we must pray on them and pray them through for full manifestation.

If you are His, you can rejoice! We praise You, Lord!

Prayer

Please pray Psalm 37 with me as often as He reminds you by His Holy Spirit. Thank You, warriors.

The Famine of “Whole Word” Churches & Those Being Kept in the Desert by God

The Famine of Whole Word Churches & Those Being Kept in the Desert by God

To deliver their soul from death, And to keep them alive in famine.

PSALM 33:19

It grieves me deeply to write that there is a serious famine of “whole Word” churches that rely solely on God’s Word, without any man-made side doctrines, and who allow Father, Son, and Holy Spirit to reign. Many churches acknowledge the Holy Spirit’s existence, but do not allow Him to lead or minister to His people.

I, as well as many others, have tried and tried and have not been able to find a whole Word church and have even heard the still small voice of the Lord telling them not to return to one time and time again. Of all places a church.

These are the verses the Lord gave me about those being kept by God in this time of church famine and how the Holy Spirit used them to speak to me and hopefully encourage you as well: 

To deliver their soul from death, And to keep them alive in famine (Psalm 33:19). The Lord said, “In this famine of true churches. I AM will keep you spiritually alive. Continue to seek Me with all your heart.”

They shall not be ashamed in the evil time, and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied (Psalm 37:19). He gave me this from one of my favorite psalms and reiterated that, “These are evil times, and I, the Lord You God, will satisfy you.”

While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into bondage (2 Peter 2:19). He said, “I’ve kept you from the corporate church system to keep you and preserve you from corruption. You remember leaving church worse off in faith after attending than before. Having less faith and feeling more oppressed.”

The Lord is your keeper; The Lord is your shade at your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, Nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in from this time forth, and even forevermore (Psalm 121:5-8). He keeps reminding me over and over to encourage me out in this desert time for the church that, “I am keeping and preserving you from evil.” Mind-blowing that this is in regard to most of today’s churches in America. Most. Not all. 

He opened the rock, and water gushed out; It ran in the dry places like a river. For He remembered His holy promise, and Abraham His servant (Psalm 105:41-42). Glory to God! Yes, there is a true church famine, but He said, “I am the Living water in the dry places. I take care of My children.” 

For waters shall burst forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert (Isaiah 35:6). “I give you life in the desert. I make a way when there is no way. Do not doubt Me. Do not feel crazy. Do not allow yourself to be condemned by those who think you are in disobedience. This time is for your protection and preservation.” 

And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days (Joel 2:28-29). He said, “All My children have my Holy Spirit and can know Me and learn of Me no matter where they are, what their title is or education level. My authority is available to all who yield to Me, who call to Me, and diligently seek Me. For all who desire me. Not a select few. Not by location or in special buildings, events, movements, or conference. Anytime. Anywhere. I AM.”

If God has kept your from America’s corporate church building settings. Fear not. He’s keeping you and preserving you from corruption and from being in churches that are of the world. He’d rather you not be under false teachings, churches that compromise, fear man and not God, and have bowed to mammon, entertainment, attraction gimmicks and not truth.

You also see Him connecting you on-line and in person to those who desire His kingdom come, His will be done, one earth as it is in Heaven.

Also, see this as a reminder to pray for the church to return to their first love and the whole counsel of God.

To God be the glory!
