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?

The Unknown

Go with God into the unknown

Release your control

Let go and let God

 Let Him lead you, by His Spirit alone

And make every intentional effort, not to be led by your 5 senses any more

 Go ahead, and trust the un-seeable

Yes, go with God into the unknown, for since, He is all knowing,

 You will not be led wrong,

You will not be led astray,

 You will not miss the mark,

You will not be lost and will not be off target,

So, go ahead and let Him blindfold you, while you follow Him again by His Holy Spirit leading and guiding you

Let Him be your cloud by day, and your fire by night, as He was with the children of Israelites

Yet know this, in order to take this journey with him, your cost will be high

For will have to agree, to allow yourself to be uncomfortable, for the reason being, this is something you yourself, will not be able to control.

Yet, I guarantee, if you submit your will, unto the Lord totally, He will lead you into his promise land, most assuredly.

Thus again, I prophetically implore you, to go with God into the unknown.

I was inspired to write this when I was reading another writing I wrote entitled “People of Comfort” and in doing so, these words just began to flow prophetically. This word, is based on those who are in the flesh cannot please me (Romans 8:8).

Waiting on the Promise-Part 2

clock

Waiting on the Promise- Part 2

While waiting on the promise one thing I can definitely attest to is that, while we wait, the flesh, whether ours, or the flesh of others, which ultimately equals war within the Spirit realm, will always be right there awaiting to assist us. And normally, this temptation comes right when we have begun to get tired of waiting.

Thus the reason why Matthew 26:41tells us: Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

Now when I say, “Flesh is always awaiting to assist us” to be more precise, what I’m saying is that, flesh is always present, to try to present a more convenient and easier way in order for us to get the promise quicker. Opposed, to us staying our course and being patient in order for God, to deliver the promise the way and timing He wills. However, we have to remember there is a DUE SEASON for everything in the Kingdom of God.

Hence, the reason why we have to constantly come against the spirit of anxiousness, because if we don’t and are caught off guard due to being weak, we may be quick to take the more easy, convenient, and readily accessible way out.  Yet, if we choose this route though, it may be convenient, easy, and at the time give us quick relief, truth is, it’ll in the end give us a headache later. Why? Glad you asked. All due to us moving ahead of God, it’s true, in other words, what was intended to be a blessing, if it’s not received in the divine way and manner it was meant to be given by God, it can later turn into a burden, a headache, and an outright troublesome curse.

Philippians 4:6-7 (NKJV) tells us:  Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Let me give a few clear examples of this, you may be waiting for God to send that God sent man and or woman of God to you and so, you’ve been standing in His assurance for quite some time, but then, after a while here comes the tempter to say, “Hey, why don’t you just go to this singles website and set up your profile, I mean after all, it is a Christian site.”  Or maybe, you been told, to be still in this season with God, but yet, due to your financial situation facing you daily, the tempter is saying, “Hey just go and get a job, it doesn’t matter, what kind, the Lord knows, you need some money to survive.” And I can go on and on…

But in closing, the scripture I’d like to reference as a warning to us all is, when the word tells us about Abraham and how we was promised by God to have a heir, but yet, the tempter used His wife to give her blessing to Abraham to go into her mistress, being her servant, take her as a wife, have a child by her, and he listened. But, as you may or may not know, due to that, there’s never been total peace for Abraham’s promised seed as a result. For ever since that time there has been constant drama, between the two seeds. Why? Because he was not the promised heir, that God was referring to when He told Abraham he would have a child, for the seed that was produced with Sarah’s mistress was done so with man’s flesh involved. Please refer to Genesis chapters 15 and 16.

Now, I can only speak from experience thus the reason, I’m sharing this. For as I stated in “Waiting on the Promise-Part 1” I’ve been awaiting the birth of my third child, and being that I’m in the last stages, you don’t know how many times I’ve heard the doctors say, “You know, if you want, we can just go ahead and schedule to have you induced so this way, you can have complete peace of mind, as to know, when he’s coming and you can have everything lined up as far as, making it to the hospital in a calm manner while knowing where your other kids will be etc.” And though, yes, that all sounds SO picture perfect, I am well aware of the fact that, because I have absolutely no peace to do it that way, if I were to take what appears to be the easy way out, it can turn out to be a disastrous situation. And so, I’ve had to tell the many different doctors that’ve suggested this same thing to me “NO THANKS.”

For I have chosen to trust God to do it in His timing and in His way, I have chosen the unknown, knowing that with God, all is known. I have chosen to believe and receive, that I shall still have a peaceful trip to the hospital and things shall be in order, because the God I serve is a God of order. And so, though no, my decision may not be the most comforting at this time due to feeling like I am so ready to deliverer and though I look silly to the doctors still, I know that in the long run it’ll be more than well WORTH it. Because Lord knows, I want my blessing in the exact way, it was intended to be given and I do not want any unnecessary drama, as a result to me allowing man, or my flesh to do what they or I thought would help God out.

James 1:2-4 reads: My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

And James 2:12 tells us: Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.

Waiting on the Promise

I tell you, while waiting on the promises of God, it definitely may not always be easy however; I’ve found that there truly is strength and joy found in His presence to continue to wait. Psalm 16:11 reads:
You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

For currently, I am awaiting the arrival of my third child and because I thought he would be here long before now, it has caused me to kind of go into a just floating mode. Which I must say, was not a good place for me to be in, because in being in that place fear began to creep in, the feelings of frustration came, discomfort, lack of joy, and I began to look closely at the things I could not do during this time opposed to the things I could do. And to be quite honest a spirit of complaint tried to take over me. But God! I thank the Lord that because of His love and me being well familiar with His powerful tools of victory, once I used them, I was able to overcome victoriously.

Some of the tools I used were the weapon of prayer, praise, reflecting over God’s faithfulness in my life etc. and in doing so, praise ye the Lord, I came back to my spiritual senses to know that God is always right on time.  2 Corinthians 10:3-5 tellsus: For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,

With everything God is always working ALL things according to His will whether I see Him do so or not. For I must know that His word is true. Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

Thus, while I wait, I can either choose to do so in the flesh and allow the things of the world to cloud my mind and produce the results of flesh, or I can either choose to trust God, His word, and faithfulness in my life, while keeping my mind stayed upon the things of the Spirit, which produce life and peace. Galatians 6:8 tells us: For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.

Thus, my choice is to stay high in His Spirit and see the signs, miracles, and wonders that only the Lord can produce, and it’s my prayer, you as well, will make the same decision.

My Redeemer!

NO LIMIT!

 

One of the ways I know God Almighty as is being MY REDEEMER! Yes, in being my redeemer indeed! And what I mean by that is this, with everything I just knew I’d never have the opportunity to experience by the Lord’s GRACE and MERCY He has and is miraculously allowing me to do so. I mean, in all seriousness I am at a point in my life where I am really living and not because of material things but because I am able to see God redeem the time on my behalf. For there were many of things I once longed to do and again by God’s divine hand I can say I am now experiencing many of them. And just one example of what I am referring to is this, when I went to school being that I never thought I’d be around long on this earth, simply just did not understand much of what I was taught due to the presentation of the material, lack of passion from many of my teachers and not to mention all of the distractions guess what? I simply put my brain on auto memory just to make the grade so I could get out of school as quick as possible. But though I made it out but yet didn’t know how to apply any of what I took in of course I felt as though I was stupid.  But God! Once I got saved meaning excepted Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior I then had a desire to learn and tap into the other 90% of my brain and to the Glory of God by me now homeschooling my girls and being they are only one year behind one another guess what?  If I don’t get the understanding with my first child by the time I teach I finish teaching my next child I then praise the Lord not only have it but feel I can teach a whole school. Thus, I look at God and all I can say is wow! While feeling ever so grateful to the Lord God Almighty for Him granting me this blessed opportunity thus the reason I had to write about it. Thanks for listening.

I praise God that God is not bound by time but yet time is bound by God and that God controls time and uses it for His purposes. For I truly do believe that no matter what your past has been or no matter what age you are if you turn truly run into the bosom of the Father who can not only redeem your life but give you an abundant life, being a life fulfilled in Him you too will be able to see Him redeem many things on your behalf where you as well can say how though you too never thought you’d do such and such… BUT GOD!!!!!!

 

I shared with you just one facet of God that I know Him as and now I ask what facet of God do you personally know Him as? Please share.
