Divine World Changers

Sooo precious of a story Sam Samy shares here:

Jesus was and is all about rescue!!! He works through people by His Holy Spirit that they receive upon faith in Him to help others neglected by people and pursued by the enemy of this world!!! As He tells us in His Word, the Bible:

“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

Oh He gives us breath for life…what we choose to do with it can sure make a divine difference in this world!!! You can make a difference in this world!!! Staying close to Jesus and going into life for His kingdom, too!!! ☝️🔥👁❤️👑💪🙏 I like this song here:

Captivated By Love

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!!!

Drawn Divinely

This Sam Samy video speaks volumes here!!!
Oh when you have a man in your life, his heart is your first priority, dear ladies of mine!!! It is good when the man makes himself very attractive, alluring and hard to resist in manly ways, too!!! Tell him what you find attractive for him to implement!!! Ask him what would be attractive to him for you to do, too!!!

Pondering Good Life

Hi, dear family!!! Today I want to continue to reflect upon ways that we know our Father’s will. He speaks to us thru His Holy Spirit and thru His written Word. Another way He speaks to us is thru our thoughts. Thoughts are very interesting!!! They stem from our beliefs that lead to thoughts that lead to emotions that lead to actions. Lots of different thoughts can pass thru our minds and here are some things to consider about our thought life:

Thoughts may come to us such as call this person, pray for that person, do it this way, share this verse, don’t say anything right now or now is the time!!!  A particular Scripture may come to our mind as we are praying or asking our Father for His guidance. It is a good thing for us to ponder our thoughts and “test everything (to see how it lines up with God’s Word). Hold on to the good. Avoid every kind of evil” it tells us in 1 Thessalonians 5:21-22. It is important to examine our motives – what is our belief behind why we are doing or not doing.  This is important because thoughts can come to us from God’s Holy Spirit, but also from our sinful nature (Mark 7:21) and Satan as well (Luke 22:3, 2 Corinthians 11:14, Mark 4:15). Yikes!!! Let us watch out, dear ones!!! Let us take the time to ponder before we act!!! God will persist in pursuing our hearts to do His will (1 Samuel 3).

come-holy-spirit

We certainly don’t want to be too hasty in making our decisions and miss the way (Proverbs 19:2), but, if we sense God’s voice calling us to action and we wait too long in stepping forward in obedience, we might miss opportunities or experience other consequences of not listening to God’s voice when He speaks to us, too. Oh the story of Jonah is an interesting one and thru all of Jonah’s story, God kept hold of him!!! Whew!!! He certainly had some interesting experiences because of His hard heart, though!!! When the Israelites failed to act in obedience to God’s desire for them, they missed the opportunity to enter the land God wanted to give to them (Hebrews 3:15-19) and another example is Saul who lost his status as the King of Israel because he rejected the Word of God (1 Samuel 15:23). Ouch!!! Procrastination or ignoring divine thoughts can have its price tag for us in life for sure!!! Prisons are full of folks that choose not to go with divine thoughts!!! In most of those cases, they have lots of time to ponder it!!!

jesus-and-the-devil

In application, what thoughts is our Father asking us to take action on today as we ponder??? Is there a thought that keeps speaking to us alot??? Is there a reason why we shouldn’t take that action now??? If not, He will show it to us and give us the right sense of timing!!! If now is the time, we can step out and trust our Father will be our sufficiency and provision to carry out what it is He calls us to do. Oh how exciting to join our Father in the divine adventures in life!!! I’m a gal seeking to test and hold on to the good and avoid evil too!!! I am thankful we have our Father to prod us or spur us on to love and good deeds in life and work in us to will and act according to His purpose!!! I have found when He is moving our hearts, it is hard to say no to Him!!! He has a way of making us brave in life and to have strength that accompanies the thoughts He gives to us as this song says here!!! I’m proud of ya’s for being brave to follow as Jesus leads us!!! I’m a gal seeking to be so also and trusting Jesus to bless us in going for Him!!! He is faithful and always works all things for the good of those who are called according to His purpose. YAY!!! THANK YOU JESUS!!!

god-is-our-gps

I found it interesting the other day when I was looking at a weather vane on my table that has the four directions on it N for north, E for east, S for south, and W for west. As I thought about that in regards to direction, Father showed me this way to look at N, E, S and W. N for never, E for eat, S for Satan and W for words. “Never Eat Satan’s Words.” Oh our Father always gives us good directions!!! 🙂 Seeking to follow Him with ya’s!!!

The City on the Hill

Divine new day greetings, dear kingdom family!!! Today, as I continue in the series of how a physical athlete compares to a spiritual athlete running thru life, Father speaks to me about the importance of being level headed as individuals. That is the Spirit of He who lives in us thru faith in His finished work on the cross that has reconciled us each one into a divine relationship with He who is our God, our everything forever:

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love and of a sound mind.” 

2 Timothy 1:7

 spirit-of-power

What is having a sound mind when it pertains to how we see ourselves in Christ Jesus???

Even though our Father places people in different places in life and some being called to be leaders for Him in this world, God’s Word tells us we are to each one think upon ourselves with sober judgment in Romans 12:3. This not only means not thinking of oneself too highly, but also not thinking of oneself too poorly.  Satan seeks to take us from one extreme to the other. He tries to make us either boastful or bashful. He tries to make us think we are “da bomb” (slang for “really hot-stuff”) or” done bombed” (totally blew it)!!! YIKES!!! LET US WATCH OUT!!! Oh let us be on guard of the devil’s tricks and stop him in his efforts, dear ones of faith!!!

conceit

People are often wrong in their opinions, their judgment and rejection towards us as individuals in this world, therefore, for each one of us, what matters is what God thinks and He says that each one of us is “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14). Through our faith in Christ we are loved, accepted and forgiven just as we are. If we reject this truth about ourselves, in essence we are rejecting God’s Word!!!   Oh let us remember that God lives in us and through His strength in us, we can do all things (Philippians 4:13) and the opposite is also true – without Him, we can do nothing (John 15:4). What good we are, all that we have and all we can do is because of God’s provision and power working in us!!! Father has gifted us each one oh sooo special and yes, we each one can power on victoriously with Jesus working in and thru us!!!

holy-spirit-in-you

When we as runners hold our heads too high in the sky thinking we are doing just fine on our own and we don’t pay attention to God’s plan for where we are putting our feet, we need to be prepared to end up face down on the road. OUCH!!! WHY??? Proverbs 11:2 says “When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.”

Be Humble or Be Humbled.jpg

When we think we know it all and don’t need God’s wisdom, God has to get our attention. Oh I hate it when that happens!!!

stay-humble

God disciplines and rebukes those He loves (Revelation 3:19). Sometimes that means scraped elbows and knees (wounds of humility) that brings with it wisdom beyond ourselves! Some times we learn thru the school of experience – the hard way because we don’t see it ahead of time. Being open to learning is vital to growing and having a “teachable” spirit is vital in the next step of “training for the marathon!” Evaluated experience teaches us what we need to know for running forward divinely – on the divine level of thinking regarding oneself!!! 🙂 Father will remind us of who we are in Him as we trust in Him!!! He in us and us in Him, we are each one part of His city on a hill that shines forth into the world the presence of He working thru our vessels of faith!!! Oh that all just makes me smile as I ponder this song here about how all of us together are our Father’s kingdom family of faith shining by His grace at work in us each that says “Here am I, LORD, send me for your great city of heaven on earth!!!” With that, “…it is God who works in us to will and act according to His purpose.” (Philippians 2:13) Oh let us exalt His name together!!! 🙂

Filled to the Brim

Idaho greetings, family!!! Today I want to share the second in the series of comparisons of a physical athlete running a race to a spiritual athlete running a race. It is this:                  

Physical Athlete

Needs hydration or water for proper body function.

Spiritual Athlete

“On the last and greatest day of the feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “If anyone is thristy, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him. By this He meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were later to receive.”

                    John 7:37-39                     

Jesus Streams

When we believe in Jesus as our Savior from personal sin, the Father will send the Holy Spirit (to live in us) to teach us all things and remind us of everything Jesus has said. (John 14:26) John 16:13 says “When He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all truth.” We could say that He is our coach!!! When Jesus’ work on earth was finished, He did not want to leave us helpless and thirsty for Him. He tells us in Matthew 28:20 “And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Although He is always with us and never leaves us, choosing to sin will grieve the Holy Spirit within us (Ephesians 4:30).

 

holy-spirit-leaks

You may be saying “YIKES!!! What happens then?” The Good News is Father still loves us, does not condemn us and here is what we need to know:

To be filled “fully” with the Holy Spirit requires our submission to the will of God. When we do not allow the Holy Spirit to be seen in our actions, or do what is wrong (sin) and grieve the Holy Spirit who lives in us, we create leaks that drain out His living water from within us! (1 Thessalonians 5:19)

quenching-the-holy-spirit

We are forever saved by God’s grace to us thru our faith in Christ’s perfect performance on the cross; however, a sinful lifestyle hinders a godly lifestyle and affects our power and our witness of Christ’s truths into the world thru us. While the world needs to understand grace, it also needs to realize Christ’s truths lead to the best life!!! Oh Jesus is so smart!!!

live-a-spirit-filled-life

To remedy the grieving or quenching of the Holy Spirit in us over our sin, it is important to confess our sins to ourselves and to God. To “confess” means to agree with God about sin. Upon agreeing that sin is sin, it is important to “repent” which means to change one’s mind; to reverse the effects of the previous state of mind. This change of mind involves turning from sin and turning to God, looking to Him to refill us up fully as we move forward. Once we place our faith in Christ Jesus, we are forgiven for all sins, past, present and future. A one-time confession of our need for Christ saves us from the wages of sin forever and gives us eternal life as a child of faith in God’s kingdom of heaven!!! Our Father likes us to talk with Him about our sin struggles though to help us move forward the wiser, with correct perspective of what is right, accompanied by the reassurance of grace and strengthened by the support of our Father in heaven – just as a father with his child does here on earth. This act of confession or agreement with God should not be seen as a legalistic act of performance for acceptance, but rather relationally healthy – a step to staying close in relationship in our minds to our Father who loves us and forgives us, even when we fall short of what is doing right. We have probably all experienced that when we know we have someone who is upset with us, even though they may still love us, our upsetting action affects our relationship mindset with that person and talking it thru brings healing and improved relationship!!!  Oh I always love seeing relationship healing and restoration thru truth, love and grace!!!

Come Holy Spirit.jpg

It is a true gift to be heard by God, to hear the voice of God and experience His power working through us!!! It is good to be fully hydrated or “filled to the brim” with the living water of the Holy Spirit and not just have “a drop in the bucket, so to speak!!!”  

Holy Spirit To EARTH

We need this anointing to run God’s road for our lives with His power in us. We would dry up spiritually without Him.

 We can  each ponder these thoughts:

  • In what ways am I grieving the Holy Spirit by choosing sin over God? 
  • Am I praying for strength to overcome the sin?
  • What other steps can I take to keep from committing this sin in my life moving forward?
  • Have I rebuked the devil verbally, claiming the power and authority of Christ?
  • Is there someone that Father would have me talk to about holding me accountable to help me have victory over the sin?  

The sinful nature within us is strong, but praise be to God for His forgiveness and power over sin to help us have victory!!! He is super sweet, powerful and full of grace for us!!!

Power of Christ

He tells us in 1 John 1:8-10 “If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make Him out to be a liar and His Word has no place in our lives.” When we confess, it is saying we agree with God about what is sin and to repent is to turn and go the other way – away from sin. Unless we acknowledge to ourselves we have a sin issue, our mind will not see a need to go in a different direction. This is why it is healthy to confess (agree) with our Father. But all the time, our Father loves us and His grace not only covers us, but also can give us strength to live the Christian life as we look to Him!!!

Do Not Give the Devil A Foothold

Jesus Battling Jesus

Oh, Jesus life – it’s the divine life, the best life!!! Let us go for that, dear ones of faith!!! I’m trusting Jesus’ with you for victory in Him working in us to will and act according to His purpose!!! His grace always finds us wherever we are to restore us in the fullness of His Spirit as we look to Him as this song says here. Blessed are we to have our Father’s grace – never will He leave us (Hebrews 13:5) and nothing can snatch us from His hand as His kids of faith!!!

The Source

grace

 

YAY!!! Oh that just makes me smile to know grace is always with us!!! 🙂 Divine sisterly love to ya’s wherever you are in life!!! Smiling to the brim for overflowing with joy about Father’s grace with ya’s!!!

Jesus smiling

 

Valued Enough to Rescue

It’s a victory in Christ Jesus day today, precious saints and everyday can be for us kids of faith!!! All people on earth are in a spiritual battle and the fight is not against flesh and blood!!! It is as Father tells us:

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of the dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

Ephesians 6:12

Devil Said They are Mine

Devil verses Jesus

Satan is no part of love and Jesus IS 100% love!!! Jesus never glossed over evil happening, but was strong and courageous to speak out truth in hopes of bringing divine victory!!! When a person was open to the divine life, people were saved from the powers of darkness and received all the glorious riches of heaven. Jesus spoke truth, but He always did so with love in His heart for the other person and was always hopeful they would see the divine light for divine peace and forever victory!!! When there is difficultly between two people, the goal is to bring about divine life in the midst of the two of them so there is mutual peace about it. Being courageous to have the uncomfortable talks with an attitude of love and God’s will brings divine victory. When two people are not willing to see the conversation thru to the victory conclusion and stick to the agreement, there is loss. People can give up too soon!!! It is important to cross over to the victory side of life and not settle for the less, nor stay stuck in the nowhere in between. PUSH FOR VICTORY!!! WHERE IS THAT??? I have seen both of that happen many times!!! Oh let us never give in to the enemy!!! Therefore, let us always be willing to do as this song says here and “move, keep walking, soldier keep moving on and lift your head, it’s not over yet.” As long as there are our lives on this earth, there is hope of the divine happening when someone opens their heart to heaven’s divine plan and help!!! Sometimes that is in ongoing prayer that a hardened heart will be changed to cooperate with heaven to have divine life!!! Prayer can be the very thing that tears down the brick wall in relationships!!! Jesus prayed for Peter that the enemy would not be able to sift him as wheat and that when he returned back, that he would strengthen his brothers!!! Jesus had faith in Peter that he could have victory against the enemy Satan and all the while Jesus loved Peter!!! We can always know that Father’s love for us never changes in the trials of life!!! HE IS FOR US!!! HOW AWESOME IS JESUS LOVE TO US!!!

Power of Christ

To You WIth Love

So, therefore, keep speaking truth in love and pushing for divine victory, dear ones, pray and seek godly counsel for heaven’s victory in life!!! It is the recipe we each can follow that brings the divine life to fruition!!! Sooo proud of you for doing so and my heart seeks Jesus’ best in all of life, too!!! YYYEEESSS YOU CAN WIN WITH JESUS IF WE ARE WILLING TO WRESTLE DIVINELY TO GET THE VICTORY!!! HOOORRRAAAHHH!!! NEVER GIVE UP IN GOING FOR DIVINE VICTORY AND PEACE!!! HAPPY TO BE DOING LIFE WITH YA’S FOR JESUS AS HE GUIDES US UP AND ONWARD IN DIVINE VICTORY!!! MORE THAN CONQUERORS WE ARE IN CHRIST JESUS WHO LOVES US!!! IN CHRIST JESUS’ LOVE???

Spirit Blaze With God's Love
