Drawing Near to God.

The more I learn about relationship with Father God, the more I have to look at and work on Worshipping Father, Praying to Father and Fasting.
Worshipping acknowledges Father as God Almighty, The God of Love, Truth, Justice, Mercy, Salvation, Peace, Healing, Abundance, Life, Wisdom, Adoption, Counsel, Forgiveness, Grace, Help, and much more. In our worship we just love on Him and focus on Him.
Prayer is our Communication with Father God. We talk WITH Him during these times. We also sit quietly and LISTEN for Him to speak. His Voice is a still, small Voice inside. Or sometimes He will speak audibly, or through a song, a billboard, or even a bumper sticker! The words just seem to grab your attention, or stand out.
Fasting quiets our will, our flesh, and focuses us on Father God. We are less distracted. Prayer and worship MUST go along with fasting, or else it’s just a diet.
All three of these important subjects are SACRIFICES. They are meant to get our focus off of us, our wants, our desires, our wills and puts our focus on God alone and His Will.
This is how we come close to God. 🙂

Train up a child…

“Train up a child in the way he should go,And when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverb 22:6.
I am so, proud of our oldest Son, I received an email from his teacher in HS because he has a failing grade in reading. 
Yes, you read that right, failing.
When he got home from school today, he explained why.

His teacher separated the class into groups. Each group had a certain book to read and work on together. The book our Son’s group was assigned was a book that is a type of horror book about kids becoming demon possessed.

He explained to his teacher that he does not read those types of books, and asked if he could read another one.
From what our Son has said, the teacher assigns quite a few of horror type of books.
So, I will be seeing his teacher today or tomorrow. And since his teacher likes books with demons, I have the one for our son to read, and I will be bringing it. 😁

Fasting & Prayer!

Ok guys, this is by far, the BEST book on fasting. Period.I don’t even want to read the other one I ordered now.

The author speaks from EXPERIENCE, not theory. His writing is clear and easy to understand. Your jaw will hit the floor several times from his experiences! 

Now I’m eager to fast and pray! 😁

I would encourage every Christian to get a copy.

A prayer.

I want to share a prayer The Holy Spirit gave my years ago, that He just reminded me of. 
“Lord, I don’t want to love You for what You can do for me.

But I want to love You for what YOU CAN DO, THROUGH me.”
Think about it, and please, feel free to pray it.
“YOUR KINGDOM come, YOUR WILL be done on earth as it is in heaven.” (See Matthew 6:5-18)

Also remember when you pray, it’s a conversation with Father, so LISTEN for what He is saying to you! Sometimes we need to get quiet before Him and just listen to Him. 🙂

Set the captives free!

I just had a conversation with The Lord. Usually they are kept between us, but He told me to share this one, so here it is: 

Word 9/16/16
The Lord, “Sometimes people have been held captive and oppressed by the enemy for so long that they have accepted it, and think of it as normal. What they don’t realize is the freedom I have purchased for them by My Blood and Sacrifice out of Love for them.

Set My captives free.”
Me, “Lord, how do I set the captives free?”
The Lord, “THROUGH MY LOVE.

Once they realize and know My love for them, they won’t accept the lies and the deception of the enemy anymore. Then, they will be FREE because they will KNOW My heart for them.”
Jeremiah 29:11-14 AMP

“11 For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.

12 Then you will call upon Me, and you will come and pray to Me, and I will hear and heed you.

13 Then you will seek Me, inquire for, and require Me [as a vital necessity] and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.

14 I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will release you from captivity and gather you from all the nations and all the places to which I have driven you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I caused you to be carried away captive.”

The Trap!

This commercial is one of my favorites. (I know what it looks like, but don’t judge me too quickly.)
It’s like life. We’re walking along, everything is great, everything seems to be going our way. Then suddenly out of nowhere, SNAP! Life takes an ugly turn, and it seems like everything is just spiraling out of control. 

It looks hopeless.
Fear comes in. Our hope is gone, and then the enemy whispers in your mind, “Where is your God? Why isn’t He here to help you?” Then the enemy tries to seal your feelings of hopelessness with condemnation saying, “You must have done something, that He would abandon you like this. He must be very angry at you.”

You frantically search your memories, trying to figure out where you went wrong,… where you sinned, and maybe some things come to mind.

Now you feel trapped, hopeless, maybe angry, and now you feel condemned, thinking you can’t cry out to God because He’s angry at you. 

You lay there, and just take your punishment.
Then,… another thought comes to your mind, “There is no no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” (Romans 8:1)

A glimpse of hope comes to your mind and heart.

Then another thought comes, “Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” (Hebrews 4:16)

Hope starts to explode in your heart, and you start to stand against the condemnation, and the hopelessness. You repent of your sins, thank Jesus for His Sacrifice for your sins and to being restoration to your RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM. 

You remember who you are in Him,… and faith rises up inside you, the fight is on!

“THE LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” (Deuteronomy 31:8)
The Holy Spirit shines a light on the life you were living, and the things you were focusing on, the things that looked so good, are now revealed to you. That wonderful looking thing (the cheese), was baited to a hidden trap, laid there by the enemy. Maybe it was offense. Maybe it was distractions from God. Maybe it was a temptation of some sort. Either way, that bait was to ruin your relationship with God.
The enemy can’t steal your hope now, and there’s no way he can discourage you! You have just become a fearful enemy to him, because you know the TRUTH!

You take your stand, and push back, remembering the Words The Holy Spirit reminded you of! You push, and push, and PUSH BACK with The Truth, The LOVE of GOD that has just burst into His Holy Fire, burning inside you! 

As you push, the enemy gets weaker and looses ground, his defeat is clear, again. It’s like reliving the day he thought he killed Jesus The Christ,… until he got an I welcomed guest!! That day he was disarmed, made an open display (exposed in front of all hell, to show) and Jesus won our freedom (see Colossians 2:8-17) by His sacrifice on the Cross!! That’s why, “No weapon formed against you shall prosper”, (Isaiah 54:17) because all of hell was disarmed by Jesus!!

So don’t let the enemy trick you into thinking you are defeated. You aren’t through Jesus, he is!
Push back! KNOW what great things The Lord has done for you out of His selfless LOVE FOR YOU!

AMERICA’S RESTORATION

Last night I had a vision, from Father.I saw a map, an old map of the USA. It looked like it was cut out of old wood, with old faded American flag colors on it.

Then I saw the word, RESTORATION in capitals come out from the map and stayed on the map in bright gold / yellow colors. The type of colors you see from a morning winter sun beaming in your house, that warm, soft glow.

I felt such a peace when I saw it.
I believe Father God is saying that He is getting ready to restore America back to it’s original roots, of love and dependence upon God alone.

I’m not great with history, but the English left England because of religious persecution in search of a new land. When they did that they found America. During that time they relied heavily upon God alone, and sought to follow His Will.

The vision I believe represents America going back (old paint of the American flag represents going back, old), to those roots America was founded on.
How? I don’t know. The road could be difficult, challenging, and seemingly hopeless. But when we allow the necessary changes to take place, no matter how challenging, the end results will outweigh the difficulties.

Example: child birth is not always a pleasant experience. With out first Son I was in labor for 23 hours. But in the end, we had (and have) a beautiful healthy Son, and the pain was not even remembered.

The “birth” of this vision may be “heavy labor”, but the rewards will be worth it. 🙂
Never give up. Never allow the enemy convince you that ANYTHING with God is impossible or hopeless. Keep pressing into Him! Keep seeking His Will above your own! Keep loving Him and RECEIVING HIS LOVE! The enemy will try to convince you that God, THE GOD OF LOVE, 1 John 4:8, doesn’t love you and has rejected you. Don’t EVER believe that lie! God doesn’t love him, the enemy, Satan, NOT you! Never forget that! ❤️

Unrelenting Prayer!

When I was on my last fast, I got a glimpse into unrelenting prayer. It was an urgent matter that I was praying for, and The Holy Spirit encouraged me to keep praying through the almost, overpowering tiredness that was battling against me.I started praying around 10:00pm, and prayed, with motivation from The Holy Spirit, and prayed until midnight. That’s when the heaviness of sleep just disappeared, and my prayers became easier and more fervent. Something had broke through!

Then immediately, The Holy Spirit said, “Breakthrough!”

I knew it was finished. And within 48 hours, it was naturally FINISHED!
That inspired me, to dig deeper on relentless prayer. 

I stumbled on this book, ordered it, and it just came in the mail today! I am already on chapter 4, and I highly recommend this book, as well as learning why Women should be wearing a head covering when praying, and men to be UNcovered during prayer is also very important.

Ha! I just noticed on the back cover, the very first sentence says, “Grow in the kind of faith that never stops contending for breakthrough.”

BREAKTHROUGH, is what The Holy Spirit said to me when it was done! 😳😁
