ALREADY

already

One of the words that continue to keep coming up in my spirit is the word ALREADY. Being that everything that the Father would have to take place, that it is ALREADY so, it is already in motion, it is already to be revealed in its perfected manifested time. So this word has truly encouraged me greatly, and even what I have forgotten about this word, it has continually come back up in one way or another.

One of the scriptures that I am continually blessed by when I think about this ALREADY word is how it says, the Father knows the things that we have need of before we ask Him (see Matthew 6:8) Hallelujah! Not to mention, how in many instances, when we read the word though it might not say already out right, it IS saying ALREADY in context of what is being said.

Therefore, currently I’m really positioning myself intentionally to receive in a greater way the ALREADY supernatural word, knowing that this and that has ALREADY been done. Thus, it is ALREADY yes and amen! Hence, I can go ahead and praise with this ALREADY word and watch this proceeding word of the Lord that I am choosing to receive by faith come to pass. I thank the Father that too, this ALREADY word is a shield that does come against any & everything that would try to declare anything different in the natural realm.

I believe that this already word is as well, not just for me, but that it too, is a word for His body, His remnant as a whole, one I believe that if we holdfast to and choose to receive this word, it’ll help us to defeat and move forward victoriously in a lot of things that the enemy may’ve once tried to use to discourage and attack us with.

Thank You Father, for Your word that says: It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life (John 6:63)

It Shall Be!

it-shall-be2

It Shall Be

In a dark and fallen world I’ve always wondered

How was it, that one day, every tongue will confess

Jesus is Lord and every knee bow,

But after September 11th in 2001, I got a glimpse

Of that word becoming reality

I actually witnessed the wall of denomination

Being temporarily erased

And actually witnessed the colors

Of my sisters and brothers only be spiritual faced.

Thus the righteousness of God

Shall spring forth in this place

Truly, God will be praised by all walks of life.

All nationalities,

Not individually, but collectively

Love shall abound and be spread abroad throughout His body.

A love that can’t help but overflow

Into others’ boxed-in territories.

A love different from what this world calls love

One that will leave a permanent impression

And draw even non-believers to Christ without question.

For the One and Only true living God shall rule and reign

That His glory is not just heard of and read about

But here on this earth is made plain.

Listen, the time is now, where the words,

“What denomination are you a part of” should no longer be

And only the words “Are you for or against Christ?” is what’s questioned, loudly

Because likeminded for the remnant we shall be

One Spirit, one faith, one baptism, we shall be

One mission we shall have

For the Shekinah glory of God shall appear,

Meaning His very manifested presence

That all with breath shall walk in a Holy reverence.

For Humility shall be

And the pride of all shall flee

Returning us all to the state of

“Oh Lord, of your goodness and mercy I am soooo not worthy”

(c) All Rights Reserved Sepia Gladden

Psalm 86:9 reads: All nations whom You have made shall come and worship before You, O Lord, And shall glorify Your name.

Habakkuk 2:14 For the earth will be filled With the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, As the waters cover the sea.

Praying the Word of God

 

CAM01684-1

Praying the Word of God

I have found that when we get strategic and pull out the word of the Father to pray it over our different situations that we face then that, supernaturally helps us to remove the different emotions we many of times have about…

And you see, it’s all those different emotions that can possibly prevent the effectiveness of our prayers from going forth and accomplishing.

So what I’ve found is that when I pull out the word on those different situations and pray the word, I then enter into a realm of praying the Father’s thoughts and will vs. mine. And we know when we pray His will, that produces results. For the Father has told us His ways and thoughts are higher than ours.

Isaiah 55:9-11“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts. “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

If you’re like me, there have been many times I desired to pray about XYZ but because of my own emotional attachment etc. I felt like I didn’t even know what to pray therefore, I stayed stuck, left to deal with the same stuff and weighed down.

But praise be unto the Father! I have seen victory when I allow His word and thoughts to replace mine. In truth, sometimes the words we pray out of our good intentions just aren’t even enough. Thus, the critical need to pray the word.

Romans 8:26-27 AMP reads: In the same way the Spirit [comes to us and] helps us in our weakness. We do not know what prayer to offer or how to offer it as we should, but the Spirit Himself [knows our need and at the right time] intercedes on our behalf with sighs and groaning’s too deep for words. 27 And He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because the Spirit intercedes [before God] on behalf of God’s people in accordance with God’s will.

You see the more and more I grow in the Father, the more and more I see my weakness and inability to really pray in a way that really hits the target. Now though, I know Romans 8:26-27 is a scripture that’s been used to point out our need to pray in the Spirit being, in tongues which I do believe in yet, I also believe this is true concerning  His very word.

For the word tells us in John 6:63: It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.

Now how can we apply praying the word of God?

Let me do share some of the things I have done. As I go through the word and the Father allows scriptures to leap off the page, one thing I’m becoming more and more diligent to do once again, is to write them down on flashcards. Such, when I pray concerning certain things, I can pray the word of the Father, because in praying His word, that transcends my emotions and also causes there to be an impact that I DO see, not only concerning the situations but also concerning me.

Now granted, I know that in order to soak in the word, write the word and to pray it, it is a sacrifice, but in doing so the gemstones from the Father’s heart is released and the empowerment to intercede is given.

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Another effective thing I’ve seen work is, I use books written by authors who pray the word, and so, in praying what’s in the book, it’s not only helped me to pray but how to pray in more specific ways concerning other areas in my life.

I personally have used books written by the author Stormie Omartian. I have used her books to pray for both my children and husband.

1 John 5:14-15 reads: Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.

I look forward to hearing about all the praise reports we each will have in applying the word of the Father.

And the Promise Came to Pass!

and the promise came to pass pictureAnd the Promise came to pass…

Well, PRAISE the Lord I am so excited to announce that my promise came to pass!!! As a result of me choosing to put my trust in God instead of man, the Lord blessed me tremendously with yet, another supernatural birth. One that has come with so many, manifested miracles that I’ll have to put those in a separate book, but today, what I want to focus on is this, when it came time for me to receive my promise, if you read “Waiting on the Promise Part I and II” then you could clearly see how the pressure definitely intensified.

It intensified with temptation, me being at times uncomfortable, tired, weary, feeling different emotions in both the Spirit and natural realm, but yet, in it all, you also read how, though yes, I did experience all of that, still, through it all, I chose to stand. Stand in faith, and believe God for what at that time, had not yet manifested and because of God’s grace and His grace ALONE and because of my stand in Him, I was NOT PUT TO SHAME. Glory to God! Now with this particular pregnancy, I remember having a prophet call me and say, when it was near the end, that I had God’s grace and not long after that word was spoken the Lord allowed me to come into full understanding of that word, by allowing me to divinely hear a bible teacher on TV say how, God’s grace is not only God’s free benefits given to us by salvation, but it is also, God’s enabling power to do for us what we ourselves, in our hopelessness cannot do, and His grace is saying, there is proof of it, that is evident.

And so, when I received this word and revelation of this word boy, did I hold onto it with dear life and boy, did it impart into me the supernatural grace for the journey I faced being, His supernatural ability to receive His supernatural promise.

Although, the war as I mentioned, nearing the arrival of my promise definitely increased, looking back, I can testify truly, how through it all, I DID have the Father’s enabling power to overcome, to stand, to push past the discomfort etc. at work in me, because in truth, I myself, in my own strength, would’ve surely failed due to the extreme warfare I was dealing with. Yes, the warfare which Ephesians 6:12 tells us, that we as believers do face. Yet, what I’d like to release to you prophetically, is this…

If you too, can receive this word by faith, while you’re waiting on your own personal promises of God, though yes, the pressure may indeed be turned up, because you’re so close to seeing and receiving the promise come from heaven and be birthed here on earth, if as well, you too, choose to stand, trust, and not faint in God, despite all else, then God’s grace, being His enabling power, will be given unto you and do for you, what you in your own strength cannot. His grace WILL be at work on your behalf, such that one day, you too, can testify how, finally you did receive (past tense) your promises of the Lord. Yes, in the here and now. Yet, in the meantime, while in your current wait, please know this, the promises of God are…Yea and Amen! I can’t wait to hear your testimonials as well, as a result to your faith and stand in God.

Inexpressible!

Inexpressible
With everything that’s within me
I still,
Could never truly express
The totality of you…
The Almighty.

I mean honestly,
My words, they just do it no justice
Compared to your vastness and greatness.

For you are inexpressible
And though Lord,
You know, I try and try
Through every part of my being
Even still,
It just, does not measure up.

For when I do try to communicate you to others
Many just look at me
Like, I’m completely crazy.

Yet Lord,
You are ever so real
And ever, so personable to me.

Though no, with my natural eyes, I can’t see you
Still, it’s as though, you’re always right here,
Always ever present, and always so near.

In fact,
One of the greatest things I love about our relationship
Is your nearness, I feel.
To know,
I can communicate with you about anything
And to know,
Not only do you hear
But also care,
Not to mention, respond.
That is priceless.

Thus the reason, why I say,
You are so, so, so….
Inexpressible

For Such a Time as This!

You have been chosen
Handpicked by God to come forth for such a time as this
Chosen to stand and not be backed down due to the spirit of intimidation
Chosen to walk out your identity with boldness and confidence
For the sake of the nations
Not to be a copycat of the next, oh no!
But instead, to be unique the original, as God Almighty
Has called and created you to be.
Yes,
For such a time as this God is knocking,
Knocking upon the door of your heart,
Saying, “Please, my child, go forth and do your part. Please, display my creative art
And even, if some may think you are straight insane
Its OK, because to do all I’ve called and predestined you for
You will have to go against the grain.”
Therefore, refuse to just sit there and watch time pass you by
Because, again, for such a time as this,
You have been chosen and destined.
Do you want rest? Do you want sleep? Well, here’s your instruction:
Keep on faith walking,
Lay hold of that which is rightfully yours,
Finding purpose and fulfillment in Christ Jesus who died to set you free.
And know, to everything there is a season,
Hence the reason
You have been called to embrace this time.
So don’t think, but know
That for such a time as this
You have been chosen,
Placed on a Heavenly assignment,
Put on God’s itinerary to manifest,
Which means you’re not a won’t-happen,
You’re not a might-happen
But instead, you are guaranteed.
Thus, do, Be.
And of course, only with the help of the Trinity
Leading and guiding thee…

Mark 16:15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature…”

One on One Time with The Father

One on One Time with The Father

As a result, people of God, of being in the presence of the Lord, spending quite a bit of one on one time with Him, to God be all the glory, I have been able to see me be ye loosed from many of the bondages that once held me down. Yes, because as you see, people of God, in God’s presence there is freedom! 2 Corinthians 3:17 tells us: Now the Lord is the spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

And so, to God be all the glory, as I have been pressing into His presence, I have been able to witness, this true freedom. And in that, I have gained a greater understanding, of my identity. I as well, have been able to see the Lord expand my territory. And see myself birth many things out, which was once, just a vision, dream and/or hope.

However, as a result to being in the Lord’s presence, He has given me supernatural might, to push out the things that were in the canal just waiting to come out), (come from the heavenly realm and be birthed out into this natural realm for His glory. Therefore, to be quite honest, people of God, I have been in a complete state of awe-ness toward the Lord.

For it is one thing to have dreams and visions, but it’s another thing, to see those dreams and visions come to pass, so, with that being said, if you have not intentionally, been taking the time to spend one-on-one time with God, than I would highly, like to encourage you to do so.

For I can truly testify, that it’s in that place, that there’s freedom, deliverance, breakthrough, a supernatural impregnation and might and confidence, to walk out the things God reveals to you, in this one on one place with Him. Thus, again I highly encourage you to do spend one on one time, with the father.

Which by the way, to be even more specific, does not include when you go to church, or when you are with your sisters and brothers in Christ, but I am speaking about one on one time you spend solely with the Lord.

Now because I know, without a doubt, that this produces much fruit within us, as a way to help hold you accountable, please do, share here, when was the last time you spent one on one time with the Lord, or when will be the first time, or the next time?
