You Can Have The Desires Of Your Heart

If you really want something you must go after it completely. Let your pride go.

I once wanted to work at a certain place. It was close to my house, the benefits were beyond good and the pay was excellent.

I knew I was qualified for a position there, and they were hiring, I sent a resume and had heard nothing a month later.

I prayed about it and then I decided to do something BOLD. I faxed my resume daily with a cover letter stating the facts that I would be a perfect fit for the job they were offering, etc.

I guess they got sick of it. To shut me up they called on Friday of that week and made an appointment for an interview the next week.

When I was ushered into the interview office I saw 5 people sitting there. When they started the interview the interviewer said, “We decided we all wanted to meet the person who wanted the job badly enough to fax her resume every day.”

I wowed them and I got hired.

Decide where you want to work and don’t settle for less. Decide what you want to do in life and, if need be, go back to school and get a degree to do it.

I have little patience for people using excuses. If you want anything bad enough, and it’s not immoral or illegal, God will help you get it.

Don’t sit there. Follow up on resumes and if you have to fax once a day and call them asking if they received your resume.

Don’t look at excuses! In God’s world anything is possible if you want it badly enough! I chose to see my glass half full and then God meets me there and fills it to overflowing!

Are People From Your Past Trying To Destroy Your Life?

TwoFaced

Phillipians 3:13-14

Brothers and Sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead.

Forgetting what is behind, simply means forgetting the past and straining towards what is ahead simply means I go forward to what God has for me to do. The life God has planned for us has nothing to do with our past.

I recently got a little depressed. Because I know God has completely healed me of depression I begin to pray about it and asked God for knowledge and wisdom to see what was going on.

God began to teach me something that I now would like to teach you.

Do you have people, possibly family, who remembers all the ugliness of your past and still like to torture you over it. They like to use it against you and often try to remind others of it to get them to think less of you too. Sometimes they do it really covertly. Perhaps in a room full of people they like to say how proud they are of you because you no longer do this, that or the other. You cringe. You really didn’t want those particular people to know about your past. If you did you would have mentioned it yourself. Yes, you are blessed that God set you free but that is the past and you want to leave it there because people begin to then associate what they know about your past, with you, and often NOT what God is doing now through you.

It’s especially upsetting when these family members are unsaved and still have all kinds of things going on in their lives that God doesn’t approve of.

I have an interesting testimony in that I was saved and then backslid terribly before I finally totally committed to the Lord almost 20 years ago.

Recently I came to the knowledge that a person in my family has almost single handedly destroyed my relationship with just about everyone in my family of origin. Now this person has not spoken to me in over 17 years. The person has no idea what my life is like, the peaceful life I spend with the Lord, and the fact that I counsel and teach others to also find peace in God, is not even known by this person. I am not exactly sure what I did to make this person despise me, I am not even sure the person knows. The very fact that they can still hurt me with these things can only mean one thing. They are operating under the influence of a demonic spirit. I don’t think they realize that, but thats what it is.

This Winter someone else in my family starting spending time with this man and the next thing you know I began to feel under attack. I was being attacked in my emotions and frankly in my physical health.

It took a while before I realized I was under an attack. Studying this the Lord brought me step by step to what He wanted to show me.

First of all when we go through things in our live’s that are things that open doors to demonic oppression we create situations that allow Satan to be present. When we completely come away from these things and totally commit our lives to God we need to also go through a time a repentance and restoration. What I didn’t realize completely is that there are some people from our pasts that we cannot let back into our lives until they are also totally committed to Christ. Unfortunately these people are often family.

Some people do not want to ever except the fact that a born again friend or family member has changed. To do so would mess up the whole story of their life that they have used to garner self-pity regarding their own lives. People will say, “But you said this that or the other! I thought this person did this, that or the other” They are not willing or wanting to have Christ in their own life. You changing proves it can be done and they don’t want to surrender. They are still in bondage to the sin in their life and they are not ready, maybe they will never be, to get rid of it.

My depression was coming from this person reminding me of things that God says in the Word He has totally forgotten. This person was saying things about me that are not true. I finally realized, as hurtful as it is and as much as I love the person, there is no longer room in my life for someone who finds joy in hurting me.

The past, and most of the people we were involved with there, needs to be just that PAST.

We cannot allow relationship with people who are determined to hate us. It doesn’t matter who they are. Any person who is condescending to us or constantly brings up the past is doing the devils work and needs to go.

Who does God say we are? Thats what matters. Any person with the Spirit of God in them will realize that what this person says is no longer true. What do we need to have fellowship with the darkness for anyway? LET THEM GO.

Pray for the soul-tie with that person to be broken. Pray for God’s cleansing LIGHT to be poured over the part of your body that is physically hurting over the mental anguish this person has caused and then LET THEM GO.

If you are feeling out of sorts, depressed and hopeless, examine your life. Who from your past is still in it? Anything we once had in common with the unsaved is a demon. Friendship with that person, or people who still befriend that person, is not what God wants for us. Why would a true friend, a true Christian, want to associate with someone who puts you down? These people are two-faced. They will keep you around to pray for them or lift them up when they hit rock bottom, which they constantly do.

Watch closely over who you have let in your life. These people are often the cause of your bad feelings. You don’t need them, and the demonic activity they bring with them. Satan uses your kind heart against you. These people need to be left to their own devices. Only when they are truly at the bottom will they come to Christ.

A California Earthquake?

Today while I was praying for my oldest son, who is away from God, and me, I was reminded of something. Was it a warning? Perhaps, we will have to pray about it.

In 1971 we were living in California in the San Fernando Valley, Granada Hills CA to be exact. My son’s birthday was February 8th. For some reason everyone in both of our families forgot his birthday. I was upset about it, and it was before I was saved. Meaning I was more upset about it then I should have been. I was pregnant with my second son and hormonal anyway. I cried most of the day about everyone forgetting Chris’s BD.

The next morning,early on February 9th, 1971, I was awoken by a huge boom! At first I thought a drunk had run into one of the cement pillars under our apartment. It happened frequently as we lived above the parking structure. But as I was contemplating that the earth started to shake violently and I realized we were having a very bad earthquake. We were evacuated shortly thereafter as a dam was damaged and getting ready to burst. We were in the direct path of the gushing water.

I was so scared and I remember thinking to myself, “I can’t believe I was so upset yesterday over nothing because now we are in a life threatening situation. As we say, “ In the blink of an eye everything can change.”

I believe that has been 48 years. They are way overdue for something big in that area. We need to pray about that.

Also, if someone reading this is really upset over something you are going through right this minute, let it go. We never know when things could be a whole lot worse!

Amen?

Crucification Of Your Soul

The day before yesterday I was talking to someone who had been through living hell. Trusting someone who claimed to be a Christian and then destroyed *** trust. There was a lot more to it, and this person was a mature Christian with a lot of discernment.

I have said it before and I am going to say it again, these end time demonic spirits occupying empty shells are strong but greater is God who is in us then Satan who is in the world.

Being restored to God after a hard situation often leaves us broken and wondering why God allowed it in the first place if he loves us.

But, beloved of the Lord, Jesus understood that he would go through a whole lot of pain. Even though he knew that, at the end of his earthly walk, he said to the Father, “Father if possible let me escape this, HOWEVER, not My will but thy will be done.”

At the end of His horrible painful death he rose again to life! The ending was worth the pain!

You who have been through soul crucification need to know that the purpose for this was so you would come out of this with more wisdom and more understanding so that you could love and show compassion to others experiencing horrible betrayal and rejection too.

The Father trusted that the son was strong enough for His mission and likewise the Father knew you were strong enough to not only survive but, in the end, thrive through your horrible experiences.

Throw off the clothes of grief and go forward to help others who have suffered what you went through. God will restore you and replace, doubly, all you lost!

A Word Of Warning!

Warning**** If you are easily upset, please read no further*****

Wow! I very seldom give warning prophecy. I very seldom give it when I can’t tell anyone what exactly to be on guard about but today I am going to do just that.

I woke up early after having a very demonic dream. I lay there in bed and tried to figure out that dream, while asking God for discernment and peace. Finally I fell back to sleep and had two more horrible dreams, one right after the other.

I forced myself to awake. When I did I could still sense the evil atmosphere around me. I had to go into deep prayer in tongues. Prayer and PRAISE.

I realized I had escaped the realm of sleep in which we are passive and the evil one can and does torment us.

I believe the reason we have been hearing so many prophets and preachers warning to get junk out of our lives and live a higher level of holiness is because all hell is beginning to be unleashed on the world. A demonic horde that is worse then what we have seen before.

Something bad is coming. I believe it is going to be seen world wide as 9-11 was seen worldwide.

Get right with God, Our only refuge. The children of God, staying close to him, will be able to escape. Just barely, as I did in my dream atmosphere this morning.

Get your house in order. Spiritually and physically!

I hate this kind of warning. I know people would rather hear encouragement but I am releasing this Word as I feel God wants me to do so.

Shalom!

Who Do You Depend On The Most?

This is not as easy as it seems. How much do you depend on someone else’s help? How much do you depend on your bank account or your savings? Imagine if everyone of these things was gone overnight? Now this is where the rubber meets the road. When people die unexpectedly,or become ill and are no longer there for you, and it’s just you and God what do you do?

In the natural we start to worry. We think one negative thought and then they snowball and then the next thing we know we are in full panic mode. I know because I have been there. Even as a Christian who professes to depend on God we live in these suits of flesh and the spirit is willing to trust in God but the flesh is weak.

When you first read this who came to your mind first? Did you say, “That won’t happen to me. No matter what happens I can depend on “so and so” helping me out. I will be Okay!”

But what if the worst happens. I spoke to a younger couple in the last year who depended heavily on his father for help. They were living in a home he owned. They were driving a car he gave them and if they were late on a bill they didn’t worry much because good old dad would bail them out.

On his way home from work one day a lady in another car ran a light and his dad was killed instantly. After that they saw a side of dad’s wife, his step mother, that they never saw coming. She now gave them a thirty day notice and told them they would need to move because she wanted/needed to sell the home they were living in. That was a plot twist they never saw coming and they had to face being without a back up system for the first time ever.

The good news is that drove them to God. But in the meantime, with no money saved, they had moments of panic.

The only way to make it through panic and worry is to learn to live strictly in the moment with God. Ground yourself by telling your mind STOP. Then be present with what you can do at the moment. Get your mind off of the problem by doing something else. Read a book, clean something or organize your closet. Get so involved in the moment you are in that you have no time to panic. Then, without panic thoughts, your mind becomes clear and God inspired ideas will come into your mind.

Anyone we put our trust in, besides God, can be gone in the blink of an eye. I urge you to become self-sufficient. Sooner or later you will have to do it anyway.

Then, LEARN TO BE IN THE MOMENT. Thinking about the what-ifs drive us to anxiety attacks. You don’t need to be anywhere except in the moment you are in. Depend on God and yourself ONLY.

The Right Solution Will Give You Peace

trees in park

Discernment is a gift that everyone has access to. Many don’t experience the peace that comes from following God-given discernment because they don’t use it on a regular basis.

I believe the more we follow the discernment that God gives us the more discernment God will give us. When we get a feeling about something and then ignore it we often end up regretting it.

For me when I am doing the right thing I experience a great deal of peace.

Tuesday and Wednesday of this week I began to get concerned. My iPad, which is about four years old or so, stopped charging. Now, my iPad has my whole life on it. I have notes from counseling sessions with clients, passwords, all my credit card companies so that I can check my accounts and pay online, my bank account, my book manuscripts, my blog manuscripts, my pharmacy information, my doctor’s office records, you name it.

Frankly, I have had trouble with my iPad not charging before, but usually by buying a new cable the problem is resolved. I have a iPhone but the screen is hard for me to read. With my older eyes I need something larger.

So, what to do? I would ideally like a new iPad but I cannot afford to buy one at this time. So, I went to the Apple store online and found an iPad I liked. I saw there that I might be able to buy one with payments. I checked into it and the payments were too high. I discussed it with my husband and he said, “You have to have one. Consider it a ministry tool that you MUST have and go ahead and put it on credit. God knows you need one and he will supply the money for the payments.”

So, that made sense and I started to try and buy one online. I begin to feel terribly anxious. I knew that I was not in God’s will to make payments. I had no peace about it and every time I started to put my information in to qualify I felt anxious again. Even though it made sense that I needed one, I knew that that payment was not what God wanted me to do.

What is right gives you a sense of peace. When you are going against your God given discernment you will just not feel right about your decision. If you go ahead anyway it usually ends up bad.

What ever gives you a sense of struggle and strife is false. Whether it’s a relationship, a major purchase, a job, or a person, if you don’t have peace do not do it.

I then went into prayer. I said, “God buying a new iPad is not in my budget right now, and I would have to finance it. I don’t feel right about it. What do you want me to do? I could buy a cheap tablet but it would be a hassle to move all my things over with anything but iPad, which would automatically transfer to a new one.”
I prayed and then I made a decision to step away from it for a while. I started cleaning my stove. I figured that would take a lot of time and take my mind away from the problem. Believe it or not it seemed to clear my head.

I sat down to relax after my cleaning job and immediately something came into my mind. I remembered last week my husband said he thought we had suffered a power surge. Could that have fried the cord I was using? Maybe that was it. I tried several cables in that same outlet to charge it and nothing worked. I tried different outlets, near by, with the same cables and they would charge but really slowly. I remembered that I had bought a couple of new cables awhile back. I also knew, through the help of God, that I should try using the USB in a newer surge protector that I had. This whole thought process was absent when I was stressing over it. Now it seemed obvious.

So, I did that and it worked. I am now having to use the new cable in that surge protector each time I charge the iPad but it WORKS. Praise the Lord.

MY PEACE WAS RESTORED.

I urge you to develop your God given discernment by only moving forward into something when you experience peace.

One other thing I advise is giving the problem a break. Do something else that takes your mind off of the problem. Walk away from it. Stress causes confusion. Just stepping away for a while will often clear your head to where God can give you a divine solution!

Joel 2:25-26

I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the hopper, the destroyer, and the cutter, my great army, which I sent among you. “You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, who has dealt wondrously with you. And my people shall never again be put to shame.

Jeremiah 30:17

For I will restore health to you, and your wounds I will heal, declares the Lord, because they have called you an outcast: ‘It is Zion, for whom no one cares!’

Job 42:10

And the Lord restored the fortunes of Job, when he had prayed for his friends. And the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.

1 Peter 5:10

And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.

Zechariah 9:12

Return to your stronghold, O prisoners of hope; today I declare that I will restore to you double.

Vindication

Deuteronomy 32:36

“For the LORD will vindicate His people, And will have compassion on His servants, When He sees that their strength is gone, And there is none remaining, bond or free.

Isaiah 54:17

“No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their vindication is from Me,” declares the LORD.

Jeremiah 51:10

The LORD has brought about our vindication; Come and let us recount in Zion The work of the LORD our God!

Psalm 35:27

Let them shout for joy and rejoice, who favor my vindication; And let them say continually, “The LORD be magnified, Who delights in the prosperity of His servant.”

Isaiah 50:8

He who vindicates Me is near; Who will contend with Me? Let us stand up to each other; Who has a case against Me? Let him draw near to Me.

The Tables Have Turned

Yesterday I felt as if God wanted me to meet him for a Word. I turned off the TV, put down my IPad and started to pray in tongues. Almost immediately God gave me a vision. The room began to glow and I was looking at the heavenlies.

I saw a veil that Satan and his demons were holding between themselves and warring angels. God said, “Daughter listen!”

As I listened I begin to hear prayers, frantic prayers, being prayed in desperation for what sounded like impossible situations.

God said, “WATCH!” As a watched more warrior angels,then I had ever imagined, charged full speed at the veil, over and over they pushed and suddenly they broke through the veil Satan had placed to keep prayers from God’s ears. A huge roar of victory was heard in the atmosphere as the angels rushed to go to the side of each person praying. The atmosphere was alive with promise of answered prayers!

I looked at God and he looked me and shouted, The tables are turning! WATCH as those who have oppressed my children now eat from the bitter dish they served my people’s.

The Tables Have Turned!

According the Oxford English Dictionary, if you “turn the tables” on someone, it is generally understood that you have reversed the fortunes in your favor to some capacity, so as to “reverse one’s position relative to someone else, especially by turning a position of disadvantage into one of advantage.”

Situations Are Not Hopeless With God

HopeChanges

There are times in life when we are faced with what looks like hopeless situations.

I have experienced some really hard times in life and yet here I am sitting here trying to encourage you. Why? One Word JESUS.

It doesn’t matter if the hopeless situation is your fault or the fault of someone else. God see’s you just where you are and in comes quickly to your side.

What type of hope are we talking about here? We all desire a life free from trouble. We would all love to live in a world where divorce never happens, families never fight, jobs never end and bills are always paid leaving us more then enough money to enjoy ourselves. Though we might desire this kind of a life we have to face facts that that type of problem free life doesn’t exist on this planet earth.

Unless our faith is tested, every now and again we never get to see how strong our commitment to God is.

In the mid nineties my faith was tested severely. Two weeks prior to Thanksgiving I was laid off my job. I never saw it coming. As it was I was living payday to payday as a single mom. What made it even more discouraging was that the worse time in the world to look for a job is during the holidays. People just don’t seem to hire then. I realized I would need a miracle and so I started looking for another job. God gave me a miracle, a few days before Christmas the human resources manager called me and said, “Merry Christmas you have a job if you want it!”

As committed Christians the rules do not apply. You know those rules that say it’s harder to find a job over forty, and no one hires during the holidays, and blah, blah, blah. With God on our side we walk in supernatural miracles.

Our hope is in God. God is our heavenly father. Like any loving father He doesn’t like his children suffering and He sends warring angels to our sides to fight off all oppression.

God took all my props away from me early in life. I am an only child and both of my parents died when I was fairly young. I had no siblings to run to and no parents to run too. I had no backup system but God.

I read the scripture that said, “The Lord thy God shall be your husband.” I took that literally and when I had a problem I ran to Daddy God with it. Each time He came through my faith got stronger and stronger.

Beloved, do the best you can do and God will do the best He can do for you. Until you understand that other people are not your help in hopeless situations, and go straight to God with your problems, things will not change for you. You have to start taking God’s word literally, what He says He will do, He does. Believe it!

You have to be rooted strongly in God because his supply never runs out. He has resources you can never imagine. It won’t usually happen like you expect. God delights in answering our prayers in unique ways. I remember when my children and I had eaten oatmeal for a week. Times were desperate. Just about when I was about to give up a neighbor showed up with four bags full of food. She said, “God woke me up last night and said you could use this food.” The thing about it was that the woman was not saved. As a matter of fact she had a reputation of being a drunk in our town. But, that woman had a heart of gold. If you wait around for church people to help you might often go hungry. I have been blessed more in my life by ordinary people who God used then religious church people. I often have people come to me and ask for prayer, that are losing this, that and the other and yet when I ask them if they are givers they tell me, “I don’t have any extra money.” I want to say “that’s why you are having financial problems.” We have all heard the story of the widow in the bible who gave her last coin and how blessed she was by God for that sacrificial giving. I once taught this principal of giving and a woman decided to put me to the test. I had said, “Give what you can give even if it is only a candy bar. Bring it in and place it on someone’s desk at work. That woman sent me a candy bar in the mail, sort of mocking my statement. What she didn’t know that when I received it I was really craving something sweet and truly enjoyed it.

When you give to others God gives to you at a time you most need it. If we are stingy, then God is stingy with us. I want to assure you that if you have planted seeds God will give you a harvest at a time you need it the most.

Don’t give up. God is on the scene! You never know whose ear He whispers in to answer your need. BELIEVE and receive!
