Captivated By Love

Ladies!!! Oh an interesting cause to check out for sure in this video here that Sam Samy shares:

I find it interesting that the lion wants to stay where it finds love in relationship rather than step out into the world all alone. As you know, Sam, a person is never alone because Jesus is always with us as His people of faith!!! Oh that just makes me smile!!! As you also know, Sam, Father created us for relationship!!! I am reminded that it is always good news wherever He opens and closes doors in our lives to put us in the divine place for us to be together with divine purpose with Him working in us as His people of faith!!! 🙂 Lots to ponder about this video!!! I am reminded of this song here about being a new creation in faith in Jesus and the specialness of His love:

Thank you for the pondering again today, Sam!!! I’m sharing it!!!

Looking Up

New day greetings, precious saints of faith!!! Today as I turn to Father’s Word, I am moved in gratitude that it is available on our mobile phones these days (got the app?) and the holy book (the Bible) can also be carried along with us in all of life!!! It is God’s love letter to us and Father says this about it:

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,”

2 Timothy 3:16

Here is a song that speaks of the blessings of God’s Word to us as His beloved people of faith:

https://g.co/kgs/0W1WNN

Oh nothing blesses my heart more than the voice of my Father!!! I need Him always with me as shared live here and He always is with us dear ones of faith!!! Thru faith, we are forever sealed to Him and nothing can snatch us from His love!!! His promise to us is “never will I leave you nor forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5) As we draw close to Him, He is always there for us and we can approach His throne of grace with confidence to find mercy and grace to help us in our times of need. Now how awesome is He!!! Oh let us not miss out on the greatest gift of all dear ones of faith – time with our beloved Maker who IS love and everything good!!! He created us to enjoy relationship with Him and vice versa forever so let us make priority the priority of seeking Him in life!!!! Blessed are we and will be forever in seeking first His kingdom and His righteousness and then all heavenly things shall be added unto us!!! Proud of ya for seeking Jesus!!! What is His Spirit speaking to you today through His Word??? “If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.”
James 1:5

Having a Grace Lift

Oh there is nothing more delightful in life as we journey along on this earth than having heaven reach down and give us a grace lift when earthly life has us knocked down by our enemy Satan. Do I hear an amen from you, precious saint???

One thing is sure in this life is that the enemy is always on the prowl to discourage God’s people however he can and what our Father wants us to know is we need not go there because our loving all powerful Father is always right wherever we are to uphold us with His righteous right hand of perfect unfailing, unconditional love!!! Not only does He keep us from laying down on the ground of defeat, but as He is lifting us up, He is reminding us that there is no such thing as failure – no condemnation for those of us in Christ Jesus, only grace to reveal to us divine life so that when we get our feet under us, we can continue on with Father’s supporting grace as sufficient to help us glean from our evaluated experiences and move forward the wiser with Father’s truth for us!!! Oh we are always learning that is for sure, so let us not ever let the enemy convince us that we are any different than anyone else who is learning about life on the go of experiencing it for the first and only lifetime!!! We have our Father’s Word (the Holy Bible) and we have learning from experience!!! How exciting to always be learning!!!

Hence as Father tells us, we can count it all joy as solid gold the experiences in life that the enemy seeks to use to destroy us, but our Father works through to enlighten us and empower us to keep a going in life!!! Oh this is amazing grace and our Father’s sweet love and amazing grace is truly something to joyfully sing about as we step through this life with Father always with us!!! Father has me smiling in His grace lift for me this new day and I’m a gal stepping into life with His reassurance that with Him, life is gonna be alright and that nothing can snatch us as His people from His hand of grace that He has forever upon all of us who believe in Christ and His forever defeat of the enemy on the cross!!!

The trials of the enemy just make us stronger as we keep our hearts fixed on the love and grace of Jesus for us!!! Let us always remember the secret of life contentment and power available to us over the evil one that the Apostle Paul came to understand from Jesus’ love and words for him:

“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”

2 Corinthians 12:9

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the ruler, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

Ephesians 6:12

“Therefore, put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.”

Ephesians 6:13

How do we stand against the enemy??? Just as the saints of yesterday did:

“They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.”

Revelation 12:11

holy-spirit-today

The saints of yesterday were sure of their future and their victory in Christ so therefore, they didn’t shrink back to the enemy bluffs, nor should we!!! They prayed, rebuked the Devil and claimed God’s authority over him!!! WOOOHOOO!!! I’m a gal standing sure and holy and blameless, without accusation and with no condemnation in Christ Jesus with ya’s in heavenly authority, precious saints!!! We are more than conquerors in Father’s amazing grace as our sufficiency to stand against enemy efforts to keep us down in defeat when he raises up his worthless efforts!!!

god-has-not-given-us-a-spirit-of-fear

Father’s unfailing sufficient grace, love, strength and power is ours as this song says here. Father laid down His life so ours can always be picked up!!! Now how awesome that we can always stand divine in Jesus, hanging onto His righteous right hand!!!

child-of-the-king

Ya know what they say “Ya can’t keep a good man (or woman) down” and in Christ Jesus, that is oh sooo true!!! I’m a gal standing all right in Jesus’ robe of righteousness with ya, dear saints of royalty!!! HOOORRRAAAHHH!!! VICTORIOUS KINGDOM FAMILY WE FOREVER ARE!!! WEAR YOUR CROWN WELL TODAY AND LET’S NEVER LET SATAN TALK US INTO LAYING IT DOWN IN DEFEAT!!! PROUD OF YOU FOR KEEPING STANDING IN CHRIST JESUS VICTORY!!!

A Tickled Heart

Have you ever had an experience in life where your heart is tickled???? By that I am describing a heart tickled as one excited or stirred up agreeably, provoked to laugher, joy or merriment. It gives ya this kind of expression:

Girl YES

Smile 🙂

I have to say the Lord truly just tickles my heart in heavenly ways as I look to Jesus first and foremost in life! King David understood this when he wrote this praise of deliverance by our Father. As you read it, see if you can pick up on how his heart is tickled by the Father:

“O Lord, in Your strength the king will be glad,

And in Your salvation

how greatly he will rejoice!

You have given him his heart’s desire,

And You have not withheld

the request of his lips.

Selah.

For You meet him with 

the blessings of good things;

You set a crown of fine gold on his head.

He asked life of You,

You gave it to him,

Length of days forever and ever.

His glory is great through

Your salvation,

Splendor and majesty You place upon him.

For you make him most blessed forever;

You make him joyful with gladness in Your 

presence.

For the king trusts in the LORD,

And through the lovingkindness 

of the Most High he will not be shaken.”

Psalm 21:1-7

This Psalm or praise of deliverance was written in response to the prayers of the people for King David in which they prayed for him:

“May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble!

May the name of the

God of Jacob set you

securely on high!

May He send you help

from the sanctuary (sacred place)

And support you from Zion!

May He remember all 

your meal offerings

And find your burnt offering

acceptable!

May He grant you your heart’s desire

And fulfill all your 

counsel!

We will sing for joy over your victory,

And in the name of our God we will set up

our banners.

May the LORD fulfill all 

your petitions.

Now I know that the LORD saves His

anointed;

He will answer him from 

His holy heaven

With the saving

strength of His right hand.

Some boast in chariots 

and some in

horses,

But we will boast in the

name of the LORD, our 

God.

They have bowed down and fallen,

But we have risen and

stood upright.

Save, O LORD;

May the King answer us

in the day we call.

Psalm 20

WOW! According to King David, the LORD answered the people’s prayers for him against enemy armies and that not only tickled King David’s heart, but the hearts of the people who boasted in advance of the faithfulness of their God in response to their prayer that they had confidence in to bring heaven to their king and hence to them! Oh that kinda makes ya want to pray for your leader, doesn’t it! Doing so with ya!

Prayer Can Move Mountains

When we as God’s people look to Him, He puts upon our hearts what is of heaven’s heart for us!!!! As the people prayed “May He grant you your heart’s desire And fulfill all your counsel!” the LORD went to work in guiding King David’s heart and counseled him in such a way that led King David to have a heart in agreement and celebration of victory with heaven and oh that is sure how our Father still works in the lives of His people even today! We may think this way initially or step forward with a plan and our Father reveals His Godly counsel as we go that can move our hearts to match up with heaven’s heart plan for us and when we see it and go with it, our hearts are tickled with joy and gladness for we trust in the LORD!!! Through His lovingkindness of revealing heaven to our hearts, we are not shaken, but enlightened and excited about going with the heavenly plan in life and seeing His victory for us as Father’s Word tells us:

“Delight yourself in the LORD;

And He will give you the

desires of your heart.

Commit your way to the LORD,

Trust also in Him, and He 

will do it.

He will bring forth your

righteousness as the 

light

And your judgment 

as the noonday.”

Psalm 37:4-6

Because our Father is righteous and just, we have the assurance that He will extend righteousness and justice to His people of faith in Him! HOOORRRAAAHHH! Oh that glory of His that will be unveiled soon with the coming of His kingdom shall be like the rising sun at dawn and like the bright light at noon! This we can be sure of, for us of faith in Christ Jesus as our Savior, there will be no condemnation for us – only reward for what we do on this earth out of a heart for heaven! GLORY BE TO JESUS FOREVER!

jesus-holding-light-in-hands

Therefore, let us keep praying, precious family of faith and looking to our Father and we, too shall find our hearts tickled in His victory blessings for us as He is at work in our lives even now and forever! Oh He has a heavenly way of changing the atmosphere of our hearts to bring heaven to us here on earth as this song says here. To that I say, bring it sweet loving kind Jesus! I sooo want to have a heavenly heart after your own heart!

holy-spirit-in-you

He loves us of faith, dear ones and is faithful to lead us in triumphant procession always as we keep looking to Him Who is all the time good and forever victorious and therefore, so are we!!!! WOOOHOOO!!!! I’m tickled about that and rejoicing with ya’s wherever you are today!!!! Let us stay connected in unity of heart through prayer to our Father for heaven’s heart for us because it’s the divine life that just tickles our hearts!!!! Oh that thought just makes me smile! 🙂 It’s a good life with Jesus with us wherever we are just as we are! Father sees us His of faith always holy, blameless and beyond reproach–if indeed we continue in the faith firmly established and steadfast and not moved away from the hope of the gospel that we have heard which was proclaimed in all creation under heaven.

The Gospel Truth

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”

John 3:16

The Smile Maker

Oh our Father has me smiling this new gift of life today with ya’s!!! It all began when I took the time to enter into the presence of Jesus with me and asked Him for His revelation as I looked into His Word. He shared this thought with me:

“Splendor and majesty are before Him, Strength and beauty are in His sanctuary.”

Psalm 96:6

As I ponder these words, I find more in-depth thought:

splendor and majesty, it is described as being authority (supreme greatness), beauty, glory, honor, natural color (organic light emitted by God), splendid (very impressive), vigor (physical strength and good health)

strength is defined as power and energy

beauty is defined as appropriate, beautiful, fair, fitting, handsome (attractive), sleek (smooth and shiny)

So as I have pondered these things, I surmise that before a person enters the presence of Jesus in His sanctuary, they can be found kinda looking like these examples – perhaps weighted down by the cares of the world:

man-dragging-ball-and-chain

Oh this song is put on mind to share here.

woman-dragging

However, after spending time with our Father in His supreme greatness, beauty, glory, honor, the different shades of His light emitting from the very impressive Him who gives physical strength, power and energy and good health to us in appropriate, beautiful, fair, fitting, attractive, smooth and shiny ways, this is how we come out of His presence for going into the world:

Man I Can Do It.jpg

strong-woman

Oh that just gives me all kinds of incentive to continue to be blessed in many ways as I take time from the world to step into the presence of our Father in His sanctuary (sacred place) and come out with a divine smile makeover by the Great Physician Jesus who heals in many ways and just makes us smile!!! 🙂 With Jesus, we win, win, win, win always!!!!

God Has Not Given Us A Spirit of Fear.png

peace-of-god

Oh after time with Jesus, He’s got His good Holy Spirit energy flowing through me as this song says here. It’s gonna be a divine day with Jesus with us today!!!! Happy and smiling!!!! Have a heavenly smiley day all day long wherever Father takes you!!!! Let us stay close to Him for divine life continually!!!! He will never leave us nor forsake us!!!!

 

 

Already Gifted

As I sit by the warmth of the fire here in Idaho listening to my Father’s heart, He speaks to me amidst the snap, crackle and pop of the logs bursting as the fire dances all around them. I sooo love that as it reminds me of the Holy Spirit ablaze with me!!!

Photo on 1-24-17 at 4.21 PM.jpg

Father speaks to my heart that while there is a future time coming when He will return to gives us a new life with the fullness of heaven with us without the enemy of this world present, even now we have the blessing of having the love of Jesus with us and His heart of care for us!!! PRAISE JESUS!!! Oh and as I write, He takes me to the passage in His Word of the two that hung on the cross beside Him. One had a heart for Him and saw in Him His divinity and one ridiculed Him. The one who believed in Him asked Jesus to remember him and Jesus, even though dealing with His own struggles on the cross, loved the man and reassured him that “I assure you, today you will be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23:43).

Because we, too believe in Jesus and His divinity and the work that He did on the cross as the enemy ridiculed Him so that we can be seated in heavenly places with Him in the future, He has put His Holy Spirit within our hearts to comfort us, give us peace, recall to us the things He tells us, to counsel us and guide us in truth away from sin, to empower us and assure us that we are His children. He has not left us alone on this earth, but rather His Spirit is present with us so that even now, we have heaven with us as we journey the road of earth where we have victory over the enemy, too!!!

I smile as I think about the man on the cross who had the assurance of Jesus’ love and victory for him. I think about how he must have felt inside with such a sigh of relief that said to his soul–I’m going to be alright!!! Now I can’t imagine how hanging on a cross could be heavenly by itself, but I can just imagine that after that reassurance of Jesus to that man, he experienced of heaven right then and there as he thought Jesus has me in His love and paradise victory forever with Him!!! I’ve got it made with Jesus here with me – got heaven on earth even now!!! It must have given that man encouragement to persevere with Jesus, knowing that Jesus sympathized with him and understood what he was going thru.

Oh the love of Jesus is so sweet to us and sure can ignite a Holy Spirit fire in our souls that says I’m gonna be alright and I can do this with Jesus with me who loves me and gives me strength and victory!!! HOOORRRAAAHHH!!! RUH, RUH, RUH!!! POWER ON IN LOVE FOR FATHER!!! YYYEEESSS WE CAN DO ALL THINGS THRU CHRIST WHO GIVES US STRENGTH!!! (Philippians 4:13) I think of how Jesus’ words to the man on the cross must have been similar to the message of this song here. This man at that point in time needed to know who he was to Christ and he learned that he was special, loved, accepted and worth the sacrifice of Jesus’ life to give him all the glorious riches that were of Jesus’ kingdom!!!

god-love-is-so-big

Wherever you are today, my prayer for you is that you may hear Jesus’ understanding heart for you as His beloved of faith saying to you, you’re alright and I’ve got ya victorious forever with me, so hang in there!!! (Sorry, no pun intended.)

You are safe with Jesus thru your faith in Him and YOU are loved by Him, dear saint. Me, too!!! Oh that just makes me smile!!! Have a sigh of relief in Jesus right where you are right now and have a good rest of today!!! YOU have a good heavenly life future, even now with Jesus!!!

guy-holy-spirit

Perhaps you can be somebody’s assurance where you’re hanging out today by sharing about Jesus’ love and victory for them thru faith, too??? 🙂 Proud of you for doing so!!!

 

The Strong Hold

Powerful new day greetings to you His precious royal of faith in Christ Jesus!!! As I begin this new gift of life today, I am powerfully encouraged and strengthened in our Father’s promises to us from the Lord towards His people as He shared His heart thru His leader Moses towards the Israelites in their war with the enemy:

“And Moses said to the people, ‘Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.'”

Exodus 14:13-14

Faith is Having COurage

As I reflect upon this passage in the Bible today, these thoughts stand out to me:

  • God appoints leaders to lead people
  • God speaks to His leaders as to what to speak and do for the people
  • God desires that His people be at peace in heart in trusting in Him and His victory for them.
  • God desires that His people cease from all activity at times to hear His heart for them.
  • God desires that His people trust that He will save His people.
  • God is able to accomplish what He promises His people.
  • In spite of enemy tactics that flare up, God desires that His people realize He has authority over the enemy and forever victory over the enemy for His people.
  • God fights for His people in ways that are beyond anything that His people can do.
  • There are times when God calls His people to be still and know that He is God and that He will be exalted among the nations, He will be exalted in the earth. (Psalm 46:10)
  • God is able to preserve our peace in Him thru His power at work for us!!!

angel-warrior

We can trust God and His whole angel army are in our midst working in supernatural ways for us as His of faith!!! Ruh, Ruh, Ruh!!! Power on JESUS!!! WE ARE CHEERING YOU ON THRU OUR PRAYERS AND FAITH IN YOU AND FOR YOUR LEADERS YOU PERSONALLY PUT IN OUR LIVES TO GOVERN US IN ACCORDANCE WITH YOUR GUIDANCE FOR THEM FOR THEM AND FOR US FOR YOU FOR YOUR VICTORY FOR THE WORLD!!! YYYEEESSS BRING IT FATHER!!! YYYEEESSS YOU CAN!!!

Our Father tells us in His Word:

“The Lord is good, a STRONGHOLD in the day of trouble; and He knows those who trust in Him.” Nahum 1:7

Whenever we see the enemy seeking to put a stronghold upon us as people, we can know that our Father has THE STRONGHOLD upon us as His people from the love of God and this His powerful promise:

“…in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 8:37-39

Here is a powerful song that speaks of Jesus as our strong tower, shelter over us as His beloved of faith!!! Oh I am sooo thankful that our Father fights for us as His people and gives us powerful leaders to guide us all in unity of His will, His plan and His purpose for us!!! Who is Father calling you to hear as His leader??? Are you a leader??? You can know our Father will give you what you need to lead His people divinely!!! Where is Father calling you to be still and know that He is your God fighting for your rescue??? Have peace that you are STRONGLY HELD by the power of the universe held in our Father’s righteous right hand!!! HOOORRRAAAHHH!!! God’s forever got us victorious as we trust in Him!!! We are sooo blessed as His people!!! Oh that gives my heart such peace knowing that our Father knows how to communicate with us as His people and work beyond us to do more than we can ever ask or imagine!!! We can’t even breathe without Him and because of His promises to us and His record of faithfulness and love to His people, we can rest knowing we shall experience His ongoing rescue that results in our singing songs of His deliverance!!! Much love to you His beloved!!! Let us keep the faith in our faithful Father!!!
