God’s Sufficient Vessel

Hi sweet family!!! When Jesus moves His people forward, He doesn’t always ask them to go back. He did call Moses back to Egypt though after he had an encounter with one of his own people that caused Moses to take some time to heal. (Exodus 2:12-14)

In the right time, our Father called Moses back to Egypt as a vessel thru whom He wanted to work to approach Pharoah to let His people who were being held in slavery go. Pharoah had been a source of oppression to God’s people and our Father heard their cries and sent Moses to lead them to freedom. HOOORRRAAAHHH!!! Pharoah didn’t want to go where God was wanting him to go, but I love it that our Father is a God of victory and authority when the enemy says no to God!!! Moses had to trust God to step out and do what the enemy wanted to tempt him was beyond him and I am sooo proud of Moses for doing so!!! Because of that God’s people have victory from the oppression of the enemy – that devil dude always after God’s people for his own!!! Not everyone plays nice!!! God calls us to protect against evil influence!!! Ruh, ruh, ruh!!! POWER ON SAINTS!!!

If there is somewhere that our Father is asking you to step into life for Him that causes you to question your abilities to be powerful enough, that is the perfect place for our Father’s Holy Spirit to step in and be our sufficiency just as the Apostle Paul realized when he wrote:

“My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.”

1 Corinthians 2:5

God will always empower us to carry out His will when we have a heart willing. Apart from Him, we are powerless, but with Him:

“I (and you) can do all things thru Christ who gives us strength.”

Philippians 4:13

Father is always with us when we need Him to remind us that we are qualified as His child as this song says here. I love the accordion music in this song – it reminds me of cajun music!!! 🙂 He qualifies the called, not calls the qualified!!!

jesus-makes-you-shine

We are all empowered with His Holy Spirit to bring heaven to earth as He guides us each one oh so special and in just the right place at the right time!!! Oh that just makes me smile!!! Proud of you for being where Father has called you to and for trusting in Him as your sufficiency for kingdom life here on earth!!! Going in His sufficiency for me with ya’s and sooo happy to be!!! 🙂 MUCH LOVE!!!

Have a great day reflecting upon the many blessings we have in He who loves us as His forever kingdom family forever!!! He is our victory!!! Much love!!! 🙂 Happy and smiling!!!

Knowing the Difference

Hi, sweet saints!!! A powerful thought for us to ponder is that the earth is the perfect setup for us as people to defeat darkness with the power of God living in us!!! Wow!!! Where do you see darkness and how is Father calling you to defeat it with His help??? Oh Father promises us this:

“We can do all things thru Christ who gives us strength.”

Philippians 4:13

my-grace-is-sufficient-2

As far as it concerns us as individuals, we can always choose to walk in the light, resting in our Father’s sufficient grace for us as victory. However, others can choose to stand against light as Father’ gives them freewill. We can pray over them with HOPE – having only powerful expectations as Jesus prayed for Simon Peter saying:

“Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift each of you like wheat. But I have pleaded in prayer for you, Simon, that your faith should not fail. So when you have repented and turned to me again, strengthen your brothers.”

Luke 22:31-32

We do not need to live in their abuse if they choose not to turn to the light because in doing so, we only condone it to continue. However, even if apart, we can continue to pray for their victory in Jesus!!!

I love the words of this serenity prayer:

“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.”

In Jesus’ day, not everyone who had light shared with them accepted it. Jesus still had a heart of hope for them!!! The same is true today!!! However, Peter was one who overcame the darkness and stood for Jesus!!! HOOORRRAAAHHH!!! SO CAN WE, PRECIOUS SAINTS!!! SO CAN WE!!! GOING FOR THE LIGHT WITH YA’S AND SHARING IT AS JESUS DID FOR ALL THOSE WHO WILL BELIEVE AND ACCEPT IT!!! CONTINUING TO PRAY FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN’T!!!

Faith is Having COurage

God’s Holy Spirit can work beyond all we can ask or imagine and we can be assured that He loves people more so than our hearts can!!!

I LOVE THIS SONG HERE ABOUT BEING SALT AND LIGHT IN THE WORLD FOR JESUS, JUST AS JESUS WAS IN ORDER TO DEFEAT THE ENEMY AND BRING HEAVENLY VICTORY!!! PROUD OF YOU FOR DOING THE SAME!!!

A Life Designed

I recently purchased a home and it has been a fun adventure bringing it together as I have prayed over it and worked with what has been given to me to do so. I am excited about the possibilities of how it can be used by our Father for heavenly purposes!!! Have you ever thought of your life like that??? Here are some live thoughts to ponder about that concept!!! Much love!!! Have divine fun designing with Father working with YOU!!!

This song here energizes me with excitement about life with Jesus who is excited about forever life with us!!! 🙂

Flying Heart

Divine Reassurance

During the night and first thing this morning as I often was awakened from sleep, I came  to the realization that it was Christmas Day, the first thought that came to me was a prayer of worship of thanks to our Father for the gift of my Savior!!! Awakened to worship and give thanks – oh it certainly gave my heart a tremendous sense of peace!!!

Jesus’ heart of love desires that we understand His heart for us as He said when He walked this earth of Himself:

“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

John 14:6

eyes-of-jesus

While that is very true, with Him being the way to victory life, He has different ways in which He moves us individually by His Holy Spirit at work in us. When we see a door close in someway in life, it is good to not distress over it, but rather take it to our Father because He may be redirecting us for a better way – a more divine way, perhaps a safer way. We see this in the story of the three wise men. When they were searching for the Christ child, they had inquired with King Herod about where the new King was born and he told them that while he did not know, that when they found Jesus, they were to come back and tell King Herod so that he could worship Him as well. His motive was the opposite though and He wanted to know where Jesus was to destroy Him. The Lord gave the three wise men discernment during a dream during the night warning of the danger in going back in the direction of King Herod. The three wise men could have let this change in plans greatly distress them because it was the way home familiar to them because of their experience in getting to where they were. However, while God closed that door for them, He opened up a new direction that led them safely to their home destiny without putting themselves and the mission of Jesus in enemy danger.  I love that thought that our Father watches out for us and safeguards His people and the mission of Christ!!!

We are approaching a new year and while it may be a year with a new ending digit when writing the date, it may bring life to us the same in some ways and perhaps different in some ways. This we can know, with Christ in us, every moment we stay listening to His voice, He will guide us to divine life however He sees the best way!!! He assures us of this in His Word:

“Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it.”

Isaiah 30:21

“For it is God who works in us to will and act according to His purpose.”

Philippians 2:13

jesus-holding-light-in-hands

Jesus is the Good Shepherd and He knows how to speak to His sheep (us of faith) to get through to us what we need to know. He is for us and if He is for us, nothing can be against us and win!!! Oh that thought just give me all kinds of Christmas joy and tremendous peace just as I had this morning when I was awakened to His voice gently saying “You have a Savior – give thanks.” Oh I think it was as the voice like that of the angel that spoke to the shepherds so many years ago when they were told:

“Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David, a Savior has been born to you; He is the Messiah, the Lord.”

Luke 2:10-11

savior-born

May it comfort your heart this Christmas Day to have such comfort as filled my heart this morning and have the peace that as we move into the new year, our Father will get thru to us in just the right ways to guide us safely and divinely thru life as we pray, study His Word, listen to His Spirit speaking in us, listen to Godly counsel and watch as He guides circumstances as He did for the three wise men!!! Super blessed we are to have His holy presence with us always with His assurance “never will I leave you nor forsake you.(Hebrews 13:5) “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28)

God’s peace to you that Christ is in us as sufficient as this song says here, precious saints!!! Much love!!!

Celebrating Heaven’s Victory

Hi, everybody, here!!! As I ponder the heart of Jesus this Christmas Eve, Father speaks to my heart of how much He loved us by being willing to do the hard stuff to bring heaven to earth!!! We celebrate Christmas seeing all the niceties, the soft lights, beautiful decorations, delicious food, happy music, gifts of love given to others, a sweet cuddly baby coming into the earth representing new life and everybody happy about it. However, the real reason Jesus came into this world was not with a mission that would be easy at all. He was destined to be born to die a painful death so that everyone who believed in Him and appreciated His sacrifice on the cross could have forever rescue from the oppression and persecution of the enemy Satan who was bent on having his way to destroy what God so wanted to have with His people whom He loved as described in His written Word:

“And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and He will dwell with them. They will be His people, and God Himself will be with them and be their God.”

Revelation 21:3

It was for the joy set before Him of our forever victory that He endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God (Hebrews 12:2) and He had the victory over the enemy forever for you and me, dear saint!!!

eyes-of-jesus

Let us rejoice and celebrate God’s love and sacrifice forever victorious with us as this song says here.

There is a day coming when our Father will return to take us from this earth of purpose for each of us that is for the standing against the enemy and sharing the good news of Jesus with others who have not yet heard of His love and gift of grace to rescue as many as possible so that they too can share in His heavenly kingdom where He promises all who believe in Him:

“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

Revelation 21:4

May you find joy in His victory for us wherever you are at in life right now and know that He understands you heart and has the big picture plan beyond this earth that is a small dot on the line of eternity in His loving paradise kingdom coming soon!!! Oh I’m a gal focused on the joy of Jesus in life!!! How about you?!! Have a sweet Christmas!!!

LET’S CELEBRATE JESUS WITH US FOREVER!!! HOOORRRAAAHHH!!! WITH JESUS, WE WIN, WIN, WIN ALWAYS!!!

 

A Simple Christmas

Good morning ya’ll! We’re talking Friday and two days away from Christmas Day celebration!!! WOOOHOOO!!! I LOVE CHRISTMAS, BUT LOVE EVERYDAY CELEBRATING THE REASON FOR THE SEASON – JESUS!!! Sooo much preparation can go into Christmas and a few thoughts I have learned over the years:

  • We can put too much emphasis on traditions. While traditions can be awesome and legalistic, let us remember God is a God of new things and grace, too!!! Oh let us be willing to let go of past ideology and welcome new if called to, remembering:
  • The first Christmas was humble – a baby born in a manger – not the expected stay in the inn. Let us be willing to let go of preconceived ideas and what we may think of as perfect scenarios and let God have His way that is perfect and divine. It is the best always!!!
  • Remember that everyday of the year is reason to celebrate. Sometimes we can build up to a perfect day and perhaps the day is less than our expectations but perfectly divine in Father’s eyes!!! Let us keep in mind that after the celebration of Christmas – Jesus everyday is good reason to continue to celebrate and look forward to every day as filled with adventure and excitement of living life with Jesus, bringing heaven into the world!!! Oh that thought just makes me smile everyday of the year!!!
  • Watch out to not let how circumstances play out be the determination of our value and worth!!! It is important to always see ourselves thru the eyes of our Father’s love and grace and wisdom as sufficient!!! Accept His love and grace and embrace His perfect wisdom for us and empowerment to be the difference maker where we are!!!
  • Let us celebrate the gifts that are!!! Be thankful where we are in life!!! The Apostle Paul nailed it when he said:

“…for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry whether living in plenty or in want.”

Philippians 4:12

Father shares with me that He is with us no matter where we go and that we can be strong and courageous. He wants to work thru His people to lead the way to heavenly life (not our flesh, enemy life or worldly life, but heavenly life). He says “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”  (Joshua 1:59) WOOOHOOO!!! How exciting is that?!! It ‘s the most exciting part of life forever with us everyday!!! LET’S BE DOING THE HAPPY DANCE WHEREVER FATHER SEES IS RIGHT AND BEST AND NECESSARY TO ADAPT TO DIVINE LIFE!!! 🙂 IS YA BRAVE AND WILLING TO GO AS A SOLDIER FOR CHRIST INTO THE WORLD TO BRING HEAVEN??? IF SO, FATHER WILL BE OUR SUFFICIENCY AS WE LOOK TO HIM TO EMPOWER US!!! HE HAS ALL AUTHORITY OVER THE ENEMY OF HEAVEN!!! YAY!!! GOING FOR HEAVEN ON EARTH WITH YA’S, WITH EYES FIXED ON HEAVEN’S UNDERSTANDING AND WILLINGNESS TO CHANGE AS NEEDED FOR DIVINE VICTORY AND WILLING TO LOVE EVEN IF NO CHANGE, IF DIVINE!!! PRAY, PRAY, PRAY SO THAT WE KNOW WHAT TO BE CONTENT WITH AND WHAT TO BE CONTENT TO PUSH FOR DIVINE VICTORY FOR!!!

“…if from there (wherever you are) you seek the LORD your God, you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.”

Deuteronomy 4:29

power-of-christ

Father promises that as we seek Him:

“I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Hebrews 13:8

“My grace is sufficient for you.” 

1 Corinthians 12:9

No matter how much Christmas effort we put forth for celebration, as our Father says:

“If I have faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.”

1 Corinthians 13:2

If we want a Merry Christmas, we must look first to Jesus for His Spirit to lead and guide us. For as He said to Zerubbabel:

“It is not by force nor by strength, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of Heaven’s Armies.”

Zechariah 4:6

amazing-grace-sufficient-grace

Jesus shares with us:

“I AM THE VINE; YOU ARE THE BRANCHES. IF YOU REMAIN IN ME AND I IN YOU, YOU WILL BEAR MUCH FRUIT: APART FROM ME, YOU CAN DO NOTHING.” 

John 15:5

Resting in Jesus’ grace as sufficient with us enables us to let go of the world and perfection that is apart from Jesus wherever we are called and be here in the earth for the simplicity of bringing His divine love to those around us as He leads us as this song says here. We are here for heaven on earth!!! The message is simple so let’s not complicate it by worldly pr fleshly standards!!! Merry Christmas today and everyday to you, dear saints in life for His adventurous cause on earth with me!!! MUCH LOVE!!! Happy and smiling in life with Jesus as the focus and sufficiency, let us be!!! 🙂 Sweet rest in Him!!!
