Write Your Own History

Read Genesis 32:21-32

Reading Jacobs story makes me reflect on my story and other people’s stories that I’ve heard along the way. How many of us have wrestled with God? At some point we have all wrestled with God. If we haven’t or didn’t realize it we are probably wrestling with God right now.

God is requiring more from us but we continue to wrestle with the plan that he has for our lives. We want microwave results. We want it to be our will and our way. God says go through the struggle and then when you surrender to my will and way, I will bless you. Amen!

In that moment Jacob became a new person and old the old Jacob passed away. (1 Corinthians 5:17) He was now to be called Israel. Jacob faced God and stopped running from correction.
He wrestled with God and the oppression that the enemy had on him was lifted in that moment.

To mature in Jesus Christ, means that we will face trials and tribulations but the struggle is there to help us grown stronger in the Lord.

This scripture was placed in my spirit as I wrote this blog: Psalm 30:5 weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. (KJV)
Jacobs’s story is now history and he made it through. What will history say about you? Will you surrender today and yes to God’s will and way?

Living By Faith

Read 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

Hallelujah! Lord fill us up until our cups over flow. Lord we need all of you right now!
Today, I declare and decree that we will not give up. We will not focus on the right now but we will keep our eyes on the cross. We will focus on what God has planned for our lives. We will say yes to his will and way.

God is renewing our spirits every day. So we must request constantly that God stir up the fruits of the spirit within us. According to God’s will and way we desire to produce what God has placed in each of us.
Don’t focus on what you see in front of you – the trials, tribulations, negative circumstances  but know that trouble don’t last always. Stay focused on the promises of God. We can’t see our Father but we can feel his presence and we can see the works of his hands all around us.

This world will pass away but the Lord will be with us always.
Today, I encourage each of us to live by faith and not by sight. Draw closer to Abba, Father and let him direct your path. Listen to that soft spoken voice and trust in his plan. Amen and Amen!

My Spiritual Dream

Today is Friday and I'm feeling upbeat in my spirit after my praise and worship this morning with Jehovah. I wanted to share my spiritual dream with others with hope that it will inspire you to continue on this Christian journey.

What is my spiritual dream?

My spiritual dream is to remain connected to God by continuing to say yes to his will and way. I want to continue to allow him to use me like never before. Reveal and confirm to me what he would have me to do for his glory. I would like to teach the gospel to my family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, strangers, or just anyone that will hear the good news. I want my life to be a ministry for all to see the God in me. It’s not about me but all about Jesus Christ. After, my singleness season is over I want a united ministry with my husband. I want him to lead and I follow. Our marriage will be a ministry, just as my single life is a ministry. I’m taking one day at a time and letting God have his way.

I originally wrote this back in late July but some things have changed since then. So all glory belongs to God! I will share later about the changes. God is still writing my story....

Don’t Stop Praying

Ephesians 6:18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. (NIV)

Today we will change the way we pray to our Father in heaven. We will no longer come to him on some occasions but on all occasions will we pray. Often times when things are going well in our lives we forget to just say “Thank you Lord” or we forget to give him that intimate time to just go before the throne with thanksgiving and praise. When we get down in the pit we find ourselves reaching out to God because everyone else has left us there to suffer through the process alone.

Just think for a moment about the purpose of the Holy Spirit which is to lead, guide, direct, comfort and intercede on our behalf’s. So often times when we are in confused places we find ourselves speechless with no words to say. If we pray in the Spirit the Holy Spirit will intercede on our behalf to our Father in heaven.

Don’t get comfortable in the season that God has you in at this very moment. Pray about all things, no matter how small it may be. God cares about the smallest details of our lives. Sometimes you have to press your way through to pray. Sometimes we as humans just don’t feel like praying or we get to busy. Sometimes we can feel that we have sinned against God that he will not hear our prayers. This is nothing but the trick of the enemy.
God loves us so much that he sent his only begotten son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for our sins. The devil has been defeated at his many schemes. God has freed us from the bondage of sin through his sons sacrifice on the cross.

Pray for all people, whether you know them or even the situation that they are going through. Keep praying and don’t stop. Prayer is the way we communicate with God and we need to be able to speak to him and make our request known so that he may speak to us. How can he speak, if we don’t talk? We all need a word from the Lord!

Today, I declare and decree that what you have been praying for will be answered in Jesus name! Lord, I ask that you send your rain to water the seeds that have been planted in prayer. Lord, we need a harvest in this season!
