The word does the work


This morning what do you stand in the need of? Are you trying to do it in your own strength?
I stopped by to tell you this morning that, you can rest. It’s time to stop striving and sweating to get it done. I know a lot of people won’t get that and some will twist that to mean something other than I speak, but here read what the word of God has to say,

It is written:
Psalms 37:5
Commit thy way unto the Lord;trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

Did you see that? Isn’t that good news? I don’t know about you but for me that is over the top good news. God is faithful. He is always true to His word.

Isaiah 55:11
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth:it shall not return unto me void,but it shall accomplish that which I please,and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Psalms 33:4
For the word of the Lord is right;and all his works are done in truth.

Psalms 33:6
By the word of the Lord were the heavens made;and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.

Today draw on His faithfulness. Be strengthened and fueled by His faithfulness.

1 Thessalonians 5:24
Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

Wasted Oil


In early 2012 I developed a hunger and thirst for the word of God. I began to just feast on it. Reading and studying. Listening to sermons for hours everyday. I had begun to esteem the word.

Job 23:12
I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.

The more I ate of it the more delightful it became. I just couldn’t get enough. And one day it happened, I was listening to Kenneth E. Hagin at work ,I’ll never forget it, he was preaching on praying Ephesians 3:14-21 and Ephesians 1:15-23, I had never heard of any one actually praying the word. ( Which is the will of God)

My mind was having a hard time processing this new information.
I had never been around anyone who prayed the word of God. The only prayers I had ever heard were people begging God to do something and ending it with, if it be thy will. So to me hearing that I could pray the actual word of God fascinated me. I learned that Ephesians 3:14-21 and Ephesians 1:15-23 were actual prayers prayed by Paul by inspiration of Holy Spirit.
Immediately I began to pray these prayers over myself. Because I was starving ,I kept studying and also found Colossians 1:9-14, this was added to my prayer life as well.

Things were beginning to change, the eyes of my understanding were indeed being opened. Ephesians 1:18 was becoming my new reality. I wasn’t looking at things the same( my vision was changed), I was no longer hearing things the same( my hearing changed) My mind was being renewed but at the time I didn’t realize or understand why the world looked new. I was becoming full. It’s like when you sit down to a buffet and stuff yourself. I needed a release because I was receiving fresh revelation from Holy Spirit. It was being downloaded directly into the very core of my being. Literally uprooting stupid.

Psalms 119:130
The entrance of thy words giveth light;it giveth understanding unto the simple.

I was no longer perishing for the lack of knowledge.

My life began to be transformed. It was amazing. Like an eager child I wanted to share everything I was learning with every one I cared about. I wanted everyone to know that we don’t have to live broke, sick, angry, bitter, or live with unforgiveness .
Everything in me was bubbling up and pouring out. I began to just tell everything to everybody around me. Huge mistake!!!
I thought they all would be happy. But that didn’t happen, not even close.
Today Holy Spirit revealed to my husband that I had wasted oil. Unbeknownst to me. I was wasting my seed. Pouring into people who neither respected me or my word.
I repented immediately. Cutting the tie to every dead weight and unproductive seed I’ve sown.
No longer will I pour out what I was given in intimacy between me and Holy Spirit.

Do not give that which is holy (the sacred thing) to the dogs, and do not throw your pearls before hogs, lest they trample upon them with their feet and turn and tear you in pieces. (Matthew 7:6 AMP)

From this day forward I will only pour into what and who Holy Spirit tells me to.
I now understand why I’ve been so tired and worn out. I’ve had spiritual leaches sucking me dry.
I will live this life of grace and I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
There are those of us who are hungry for the things of God!!!!

Perfectly Perfect


There is a saying that I keep hearing/seeing in just about every other Twitter bio or Facebook status. And it reads, “I am not perfect”.
As if to say our imperfections as humans make us more relatable to each other.

If we are believers who follow Christ shouldn’t we be standing on-
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature:old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

And if we stand on 2 Corinthians 5:17 then aren’t we made perfect through what Jesus did on the cross? By faith in what Jesus has done aren’t we now justified?

Shouldn’t we be looking from the cross at the finished works of Jesus? Is it just me who challenges the old mind set that says ;I’m just an old sinner saved by grace?

Wasn’t it Paul in 2 Corinthians 7:2
Who said”Receive us; we have wronged no man, we have corrupted no man, we have defrauded no man”?
Excuse me ,but isn’t this the same Paul who was Saul that persecuted the church? Isn’t this the same Paul who was there at the stoning of Stephen, and was in total agreement with it?

Acts 7:58
And cast him out of the city, and stoned him:and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man’s feet, whose name was Saul.
Acts 8:1
And Saul was consenting unto his death.

By fact of the scripture the answer would most definitely be yes. But by repentance, the answer is no. This is not the same Saul who would later be named Paul.

These are the words Ananias told Paul:
Acts 22:16
And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.

So what revelation then had Paul received that many of us are missing today?
Paul not only got a revelation of his righteousness but he received his righteousness by faith.
Why are we so sin conscience?

Jesus left it all on the cross. His last words were “It is finished” John 19:30

I say all that to say this: can we stop looking at ourselves through the past and see ourselves through the blood of Jesus.

1 John 1:7 ASV
but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Revelation 1:5
And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

Isaiah 43:25
I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake,
and will not remember thy sins.

When the Lord uses the word ‘blot’ He means total annihilation. When He blots out our sins, our sins, transgressions and iniquities are totally annihilated and no longer exist. God said, “I have blotted out like a thick cloud your transgressions, and like a cloud your sins. Return to Me, for I have redeemed you” (Isaiah 44:22).

Yes, absolutely God despises sin!!! No question!!! No argument. But He does not despise us!!! We are washed clean.

We are in deed perfectly perfect!

I’ll close this out by repeating what Paul said in
2 Corinthians 7:3
I speak not this to condemn you.

It’s ok to say it, I AM PERFECT!!!!!!

1 John 4:17
Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment:because as he is, so are we in this world.

Before we agree


In 2014, Holy Spirit has had me switch something up that bothered me in 2013.
It has always worked my chemicals when someone would ask me to pray for them but then tell me what to say when I prayed.
Has that ever happened to you? Or have you ever done it to someone?

I mean it’s like saying to I trust you to pray for me but I don’t trust what you will say. Come on now, you might as well pray for yourself.
And then their are the people asking for prayer but don’t want to tell you what you’re praying for.

I need to know what I’m coming into agreement with. Because at the point I agree to pray for you, I’m entering into spiritual territory. That’s major warfare. Prayer is realms and dimensions, you’re getting involved with the unseen. Angels are real!! Demons are real!!! This isn’t fairy tales and make believe.

I’m not asking you what it is you want me to pray about to be nosey or spread your business in gossipy conversations. ( maybe gossipy isn’t a real word but it explains what I’m trying to say)
There are two major reasons I’m asking you what I’m praying for
#1 so that I can target my prayer specifically to what you need. Because I pray the word of God.
#2 so I’ll know what I’m coming into agreement with.
What is your belief system? What are you standing on? Meaning what scripture are you believing.
These things are important.

This revelation has come from spiritual warfare that I brought on myself. Not knowing the truths that bothered me. Holy Spirit was sending warning signals that I missed. We must begin to pay attention to what bothers us. I’ve learned the hard way. Thank God for the grace of God.

I’ve had to go back and repent of things that I came into agreement with in praying for people. I’ve had to renounce words spoken. Come against ungodly soul ties that were created. Dealt with sickness and infirmities in my body. Close off and seal doors that were opened to the enemy. Bind satanic and demonic attacks that were coming against me and my family.

The bible clearly tells us:

Amos 3:3
Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

Matthew 18:19
Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

Once we come into agreement with a person or persons a spiritual law has been activated.
We must become cautious and aware.
How many times have you been on the phone or in a conversation with someone and they were speaking negatively or talking against the plans and purposes of God?
If you didn’t speak against what they were saying you came into agreement with it.

I don’t say any of this to bring about condemnation. That is not my intention. Only to shine a light in the darkness to things you might not be aware of.

This maybe the first time you’ve ever heard of anything like this, but before you write it off ; I ask you to pray and seek God for yourself.
