God is Interested

God is interested in every individual. As he walked with Adam in the garden of Eden, he desires to walk with us. He wants us to become acutely aware that our walk is in the spirit and not in the natural realm of man's ideologies. Through fellowship with the Lord, we become like him and
we will obtain power from him to resist every fiery dart the
devil thrusts at us to destroy our faith in God.
The method of becoming wise to satan's strategies is through revelation of the Holy Spirit...not with carnal observance. The armor of God is available to us as we draw near to God in the spirit. Putting on the armor of God will give us spiritual perception as to what satan is "up to". Satan has only one weapon, DECEIT. He can only use that weapon on the mind. We must UNDERSTAND our God is ALL powerful ALL of the time. We must understand that His power is within us when we are filled with Him! The only way for the devil to defeat us is for us to get out from under the blood of Jesus. NOTHING is powerful enough to overthrow us as long as our faith is in Jesus Christ.

Psalm 92:1-5


Psalm 92 1-5
IT IS A GOOD THING TO GIVE THANKS UNTO THE LORD, AND TO SING PRAISES UNTO THY NAME, O MOST HIGH:
To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,
Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.
For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.
O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep.

I am so thankful this day to know the Lord and experience His kindness. What a privelage to know His name - Jesus. Today my heart leaps with joy to know His arms are around me. We may experience surprises tomorrow, but nothing surprises God. If trouble comes our way, it's only because He allowed it and will show His glory in it. We are safe in the arms of God.

This Is The Day

This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.Psalm 118:23-25
I can't stop thinking about this scripture today. I think of the difference it makes in our lives when we realize that God has given us another day. None of us know what tomorrow holds but as long as we are in His hands, we can rejoice. I am so thankful for this day and the breath to praise His name one more time.

Psalm

Psalm 100 (King James Version)

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.
Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.



What a privilege to bless and praise His Holy Name. There is something about praise and worship that completes us.

Sunday Morning

It's so good to wake up on a Sunday morning and know that I will be joining other Christians to worship our God and Savior. I'm thankful for the Holy Ghost which leads and guides me. I am never alone even if I feel like I am sometimes. I have learned to put my emotions aside and trust the word of God. I believe the scripture that says "if two agree on any one thing, then it shall be done". Period. It's so good to lift up my hands to give Jesus glory and honor. I can't wait until I bow at his feet and worship Him in person. Many signs of the rapture are here so I don't think it will be long before He takes us away. I'm doing my best to pray for my family, friends and neighbors.

Sisters Needing Prayer

I know there are many more women that need prayer but today I would like to ask you to join me in prayer for two blogger sisters that are battling cancer. They are in the Masters Hands which are the best hands to be in.
Wanda had surgery yesterday for breast cancer and Cari has been battling for some time.
Here are their websites:

Praying & Fasting

This is the day that the Lord hath made... Inside of this day we can have miracles & healing. He knows what we need and through fasting and prayer it can come about. Now is not the time to give up or turn around. Now is the time to get tougher against the enemy that wars with our soul. If we haven't fasted for some time and are physically able to do so, we need to skip that meal or two. We stand in awe in what that does in the spiritual realm. I have a friend that taught me to speak to my stomach and say "you're not going to eat right now". In this situation, we need to stand boldly in what needs to be done. We need to get this flesh under subjection. Yes you may get hungry and think you can't make it, but you can. The next meal is right around the corner. When you have finished your fast, you will be in wonder how God Almighty has worked. The sacrifice of the flesh is not always easy, but it's worth it. If we want dreams, visions, and a closer walk with Him, this is one of the best ways to get there. If we have had all of that in the past and no longer witness those things, we need to check our fasting and prayer level. Visions are real, miracles are real, and a closer walk with Him is real. Being in His presence is the most rewarding part of it all.

Title Change

OK I admit it, I change titles as often as I move the furniture. I think this title will express more of what I am trying to accomplish. My other title "It's Not About Us Anymore" made it difficult for me to express how awesome God is, as I tried not to mention us. But I need to, in order to make witness of His miracles, healings and souls being saved. What He does through us, makes it about Him & us. But all glory will be given to Him alone.

Who knows, it may be changed again tomorrow.

Great Cartoons

Easter Sunday

May you feel Gods love today. His love started long before the cross. But through that gruel day, we are able to live again. His mercy and love can see us through anything. By His stripes we are healed....

It's Good To Pray

Can people see Jesus in us? It’s so easy to tell them that we are a Christian. But if talking about Jesus is all we can do, it’s not enough, for them or for us. Do we feel that emptiness when we realize it’s been some time since we’ve hit our knees in true repentance? When was the last time we went to prayer and all we could do was to utter praise?

We were created with a mixture of emotions that are moved when we see or hear something spiritual. When you watch a movie that glorifies God or hear about a miracle, do you experience the goose bumps? Do you get that warm and fuzzy feeling? If so, thank God because many have walked away and their feelings have become as stones. Did it make you want to cry, repent or rededicate your life to Him. It’s all a part of God’s plan.


Repentance not only reaches deep within our beings, but when we are finished, we are clean. When we allow God to remove all that is ugly and unbecoming within us, then and only then can He use us the way he intended. At this point, we won’t need to tell people who we are or who we belong to, it will flow from us. God wants to gently take us down the road that may be bumpy and long but He will never leave us nor forsake us. The closer we want to draw to Him, the more He will mold us.

Prayer isn't always easy or convenient but it’s worth every sacrifice we can make. We need to yearn for Him with every breath within us. We will be amazed how deep within His spirit He will take us. God uses people in miracles. We are His hands and feet. To be used in this area, His Word states that “this can only be done with prayer and fasting”. More on this in a future post.

Have you noticed people that aren't living for God are starting to feel like something is going to happen? Jesus wrote in His word that He will take us out of here someday and I truly believe that day is soon. The sign of the times are clear. If there was ever a time to pray, it is now.
