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!!!

Lured by Light

Good pondering here in this video, Sam Samy!!!

Thank you for sharing this!!! It speaks to me and I will share it with my lady friends who journey my road of purpose with me to always be careful about what we let lure us because the devil disguises himself as an angel of light!!! Our defense is to stay close to Jesus and pray, pray, pray always!!! I like this song here about protection found in Jesus

Courage to Trust

Sam Samy shares this video here and ladies here with me, Father speaks to my heart that when your man is seeking Jesus and is willing to do battle in partnership with Him to protect you and your family, let him do so, trusting Jesus is guiding him and praise him for it!!!
 
Prince and Princess
 
His bravery and faithfulness speaks powerfully of God’s love and power flowing through him for you!!! It is good when the enemy who hunts us down to destroy us is put in his place!!! Be courageous in trusting Jesus to guide your man courageously!!! This song here speaks to how Jesus made men to be courageous!!! (Us, courageous in faith, too!!!)
 
Father’s promise: “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid and do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will go with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
 
Trusting Jesus courageously with you!!! 🙂 His promise from Himself to us each is “never will I leave you nor forsake you.” Joshua 1:9
 
Jesus always brings the victory when we follow His lead!!?

Strong and Courageous Over Flesh

Oh how awesome that our Father has given us a great day of opportunity to be His royal family of saints together!!! Our Father loves us and cares for each one of us divinely and desires our best just like He did the Israelites in Biblical times!!! While our Father sees each one of us as His kids as special, He also knew that with there being sooo many people that all have their own personalities and ideas and opinions, that there would need to be a leader that sought out the heart of Jesus and communicated it with authority to God’s people so that they could all follow the Lord’s plan for them all to get them where they needed to be – to the land that would be prosperous and a blessing to them as His royal forever kingdom family – a land flowing with milk and honey!!! The Lord’s anointing for the divine plan for all of them was on Joshua as the leader. Joshua could have been terrified at that thought, but he rested in knowing the Lord was with him and never leaving him!!! God had promised him that He would see him thru what He was asking of him to do and that he would be blessed!!! The same is true for each of our Father’s kids of faith!!!

God will Reward Your Faithfulness

The other people that Joshua was in charge of leading, upon hearing the divine overall plan of God for them all thru Joshua, received their own personal anointing from the Lord personally to individually carry out their part in the divine plan given by Joshua to them thru our Father’s Spirit spoken to him. The divine life is always Holy Spirit-powered!!!

Pentecost

In one example of the Bible (Joshua 1:10-18), there were mighty men who were “officers over the people,” and Joshua as God’s chosen leader over them told them to “Pass through the midst of the camp and command the people, saying, “Prepare provisions for yourselves, for within three days you are to cross this Jordan, to go in to possess the land which the Lord your God is giving you, to possess it.” Joshua encouraged his officers and reminded them of the blessings that would result in their lives thru their willingness to do what needed to be done for victory!!! “The Lord will give you rest and will give you the land.” I sooo love that about Joshua’s heart that desired to inspire and encourage Father’s people to do the right thing!!! Sooo sweet and of a good leader that is!!!

Armor of God

Joshua guided his men in what to do with regards to caring for their wives, their children and the possessions in the midst of carrying out the Lord’s call on their lives. I love it that our Father worked thru His leaders to take care of their families and steward well what our Father had given to them!!! He reminded them of who they were in God-given ability to help others, saying to them “you shall cross before your brothers in battle array, all you valiant warriors, and shall help them until the Lord gives your brothers rest, and He gives you, and they also possess the land which the Lord your God is giving them. Then you shall return to your own land, and possess that which Moses the servant of the Lord gave you beyond the Jordan toward the sunrise.” Oh there is a time for work-life and time for restful home life, too!!!

I love the respect that these “officers of the people” said to Joshua, their anointed leader when they replied to Joshua:

“All that you have commanded us we will do, and wherever you send us we will go. Just as we obeyed Moses in all things, so we will obey you; only may the Lord be with you as He was with Moses. Anyone who rebels against your command and does not obey your words in all that you command him, shall be put to death; only be strong and courageous.”

Jesus and His Disciples

God You Have Called Me Friend

Putting to death the flesh that opposes our Father’s leaders by being strong and courageous in the Lord leads to the divine in life!!! Rebellion against our Father’s leadership of His leaders is to rebel against the Lord and its result is always destruction – not for the leader, but for those who fight against Jesus!!! Jesus’ heart for all His people is a good orderly plan for life as He says in His Word:

“For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Jeremiah 29:11

Our God Saves

In light of these thoughts, how is Jesus speaking to you as a leader in leading those He has put in your care, saints??? What divine plans, encouragement and inspiration can you share with others to spur them on towards love and good deeds??? Is there a leader in your life that our Father is speaking divine plans to you through??? What steps are needed to bring it about in your life??? We can know this, in trusting in our Father, there is blessing for us all and He who is calling us to do the divine will enable us and provides all we need to make the divine happen!!!

Divine Energy - Version 2

Oh with Jesus with us each one, we are powerful to have the best life and we already have forever salvation and unfailing love thru our faith in Jesus’ finished work on the cross!!! We have already received all the glorious riches of His kingdom land that will forever be flowing with sweet milk and honey!!! Forever blessed we are – let’s help others to have that forever blessing in life too, starting with a blessed life in the here and now!!! Sooo proud of you for your love for our Father’s heart first in all of life!!! Where Jesus goes, I will follow personally as this song says here.

Father's Hand Has Us

Being Open to YOU

It is an awesome gift of historic divinity on display all around us and in us today as we journey thru life together!!! Each one of us is oh sooo special in the eyes of our Creator Jesus and He sooo longs for each person in the world to know how special they are and how much He loves them and wants to help them thru all of life!!!

Girl-Opening-Box-of-Light

I grew up a quiet reserved girl and never really talked in depth with family and friends about deep inner issues and because of that, I didn’t learn from others like I could have and because I didn’t know Jesus until much older in life, I spent a lot of years trying to figure life out on my own. Oh, I don’t recommend that for anyone!!! There is a better divine way!!!

Seek God First Puts Life In Place

Our Father has given us His written Word to help us deal with life in the best way – His divine way and it is where success in having a forever good life begins!!! Sometimes we are around very quiet shy people and one of the best things to consider that we can do is to share the story of how Jesus has helped us in life and the importance of trusting in Him as our personal Savior from the wages of all sin and trusting His written Word to us to guide us successfully thru life!!! It is not to say that all quiet people are without Jesus, but often people are very withdraw because of life trauma and are lacking in how to overcome it to step into the world with confidence!!! I sooo wish someone would have helped me to know Jesus at a younger age in life because it would have saved me much grief from the “school of hard knocks.” This is true though, I learned a lot from my past life experience!!! Life knocks much harder on us than our sweet loving Jesus does in teaching us the divine way of life and He tells us in His Word:

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him/her and will dine with him/her and he/she with Me.”

Revelation 3:20NASB

Rev 3-20

Why should a person let Jesus into our lives??? His promise to us kids of faith is this:

“He/she who overcomes, I will grant to him/her to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. He/she who has an ear, let him/her hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”

Revelation 3:21-22NASB

God on His throne

WOW!!! To be given a heavenly seat with the God of heaven for all of eternity is the greatest gift we can ever receive and upon faith, it is a gift that can never be taken away from us!!! Not only will we dwell with Jesus and eat at His banquet table there, but Christ indwells our hearts with His Holy Spirit to be our best friend to personally spiritually feed us, counsel us and guide us in continual triumphant procession as long as we have life here on earth!!! Such a divine deal is that to have free thru faith!!! Oh, blessed kids are we who have faith in Jesus!!!

Trusting Jesus

Life can have many struggles and issues in which to make decisions upon and the best decision anyone can make is the first one – to open the door of their heart and let Jesus in to rescue them and help them!!!

Jesus at Door

I never knew how to study the Bible until someone invited me to a Bible study and showed me what a priceless treasure it was to my heart!!! Share the greatest treasure there is, JESUS!!! Let it begin by just sharing how you find strength and help in your life!!! You may just make someone’s forever life divine!!! Much love to you wherever you are, dear family of saints!!! YOU are a divine gift to the world in a way that is unique and necessary for the place where our Father has placed you!!! Be open to YOU – God in YOU to help someone else discover who they are in Christ and His precious plan for their life!!! Bless you for your bravery thru the Holy Spirit who will enable us each as this song says here. YOU can help others be brave to conquer life victoriously, too and comfort others with the comfort that they receive thru God in YOU!!! Sooo proud of you for doing so to comfort those in need!!!

Eyes of Tears

Call Upon Me in the Day of Trouble

Pastor With Bible

Bacon Saved

Hee, hee, hee!!! I chuckle this day as our Father speaks to my heart about a group of brothers that found themselves in a bit of a predicament!!! It all started with a little brother named Joseph who had been given our Father’s grace in a very special unique way that was different from his brothers, his father’s other sons. Young Joseph was also said to be more loved by his earthly father than the other brothers because Joseph was his son of his old age and his father made him a colored tunic.

Joseph and Father Love

Because of this and also the divine revelation given to their little brother thru dreams about the future, Joseph’s brothers were jealous and hated him. One day when the father sent Joseph to go check on his brothers who were pasturing the flock for him, the jealous brothers saw Joseph approaching from afar and schemed to kill him, throw him in a pit and tell their father that a wild beast ate him. One of the older brothers of Joseph spoke against his murder, so they ended up stripping him of the colored tunic that their father had made Joseph, throwing him into a pit and when a group of Ishmaelites were passing by, they sold Joseph to them. The Ishmaelites took him to Egypt and sold him to an Egyptian officer of the Pharaoh.

Because the Lord was with Joseph in his circumstances, he became a successful man, a ruler of Egypt and was ultimately set over all the land of Egypt!!! Shazam!!! Talk about a divine Father at miracle work for His kid of faith thru prayer – well, our Father did one in this story!!! WOOOHOOO!!! GO FATHER!!! 🙂

Smiling Boy

Now our Father works in mysterious and amazing ways and this new divine God-given position came in quite handy when it came famine time and Joseph was able to be a dream come true to his brothers when they found themselves in a place of need, having to go to Egypt and ask for food. Guess who they had to ask for it from??? Yep, none other than their little brother Joseph whom they had sold out of their hearts and lives moved by jealousy towards him!!! Joseph recognized them, but they did not recognize him, so after dealing with his emotions, having them go thru some divinely discerned steps to test and teach his brothers’ hearts about honesty and at the same time accomplish the needed steps to deal rightly with the situation, he provided for their needs abundantly and moved them to Egypt to be near him and to care for them all well with the glorious riches of the Lord’s provision for them!!! Oh, have you ever heard of God’s grace moving in a heart??? It did thru Joseph!!!

Joseph with Brothers.jpg

After being reunited together again as family, their father passed away and the brothers out of fear of not knowing how Joseph would act towards them now that their father was dead, the brothers put words into a sent message to Joseph written in the personage of their dead father saying: “Please forgive, I beg you, the transgression of your brothers and their sin, for they did you wrong.” And now, please forgive the transgression of the servants of God of your father.” Joseph wept when he heard those words. His brothers stepped forward and bowed down before him just as the dream given to Joseph as a boy had revealed and they said to Joseph “Behold, we are your servants.” But Joseph seeing their worried hearts over their sin, Joseph spoke words of grace to them again, saying:

“Do not be afraid, for am I in God’s place? As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive. So therefore, do not be afraid; I will provide for you and your little ones.” So he comforted them and spoke kindly to them.

Genesis 50:19-21

Unwavering Faith

Oh our Father’s sweet loving grace is sooo beautiful in life to us as His kids of faith!!! Joseph’s words had to have been much to all their relief in more ways than one to see that the Lord had saved their bacon, so to speak – that means to save someone’s skin or neck or hide!!! Oh now that thought just makes me smile!!! 🙂

Three Baloons on Pig.jpg

Life Preserver for Pig.jpg

Oh they all came out smelling like a divine rose full of the fragrance of our Father’s love, power, grace and purpose!!!

Bacon Roses.jpg

That is what our sweet Jesus does for us as His kids as we look to him to help us in life!!!

What does our Father speak to your hearts as you reflect upon this story, sweet family??? In our life relationships, we are all human and we are in the midst of a spiritual battle between Satan and our Father. Satan is always seeking to destroy families and relationships and our Father is always working to save them and bring into them forgiveness, love, peace, purpose and His forever blessings.

Jesus Battling Jesus

As I reflect upon this story, these questions I reflect upon: Where do we need to trust our Father in difficult circumstances to “save our bacon”??? Where do we need to extend grace to bless others around us??? Where do we need to ask for forgiveness??? Where do we need to work together to bring about our Father’s will, His plan and His purpose??? Much love to you all wherever you are!!! I always say that everyday is like Christmas with Jesus with us as our Savior and this story of sweet reunion and reconciliation sure has a familiar ring to it as I think about how our sweet Father sent His One and only son into the world to save us, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life with Him in His eternal kingdom with us all as His beloved children of faith!!! Now if that don’t just wag the tail on the end of a puppy, I don’t know what will do so!!! 🙂

Wagging Tail

I love happy endings and all the in between, too – being in our good loving Father’s care always as we experience life together as His kids of faith!!! Father’s grace – it always finds us to save our bacon as this song says here!!! YYYIIIPPPEEE!!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS SPIRIT TO YOU DEAR SAINTS!!!

YOU ARE ALL AWESOME AND WITH GOD WITH US, WE ARE ALL POWERFUL BY HIS DESIGN!!!

 

The Divine in Numbers

It’s a day in which we can see it as a holy joyful day, dear family of saints, for our Father sees us all as His holy kids of faith as we look to His finished work on the cross for us to rescue us from the wages of sin, reconcile us into a perfect love relationship with Him, indwell us to empower us and guide us divinely to be His love and light into the world and bless us with forever life in His victorious heavenly kingdom!!! YYYIIIPPPEEEE!!! Jesus said His heart for us as His kids is “that His joy may be in us and that our joy may be complete.” (John 15:11) Jesus also told us that “you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you and you shall be my witnesses into in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8) Jesus gives us the power of Him in us thru our faith in Him, not so that we can promote ourselves in this life, but so that we can promote Him into this world.

Christ Lion of Judah

Oh He is sooo awesome and “perfect/purrfect” for all the world to see!!!

Holy Spirit Peace

Holy Spirit Roar

Given this roaring Holy Spirit power of the Lion of the tribe of Judah as Jesus is referenced in the Bible (Revelation 5:5), our Father’s heart wants us to understand that while His power in us can enable us to do all things that He calls us to do as an individual, our Father has never desired that we choose to see our self as the complete church in our self.

Male Lion on Fire

To see our self as the complete church in oneself, could look like having an outlook that “one person hears from God and nobody else does.” That is certainly not of our Father because He calls us to be family and to love each other, help each other, to seek godly counsel from each other, to strengthen and encourage each other and all the more as we see the day of His return to earth approaching!!! His Word tells us:

“…so in Christ, we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.”

Romans 12:5

One Eye Lion

In Christ, we have one mind, one heart and one Spirit in common as His divine family of saints – His divine eyesight!!! His sight is the best!!!

When we hear the heart of others, we should not dismiss what they share with us as not being from God, dear ones, but to take what is shared before our Father and ask Him for His heart in it for us as His kids. He tells us that He works good through all things and therefore, there can be a nugget of gold in all things that are put before us. It may be that something shared is something that is true of us, that is true to our circumstance, a warning of caution that something that could be or become, a motive check or test of our heart in a situation or something perhaps our Father wants us to see that maybe doesn’t pertain to our own life, but in seeing it, it could help someone else should our Father want to speak it to them thru us as He guides us!!! Now how exciting is all of that to hear to consider for us all as family to help us see the divine as Father reveals it!!! The point of all of this is, that no person is an island by themselves on the ocean of our Father’s grace flowing upon the shores of our hearts as His kids of faith. It is His living waters that saturate the holy ground of our hearts for His divine purposes!!!

One Tree Island

When we see each other as a gift from our Father into our lives, we can appreciate the power of His grace in each one of us. It doesn’t matter how young or old one is or how long they have walked with Christ, our Father’s Spirit of power can speak and work through any of His kids in sufficient ways to get His will accomplished through each one of us!!! Is there power in one with the holy One Jesus – the answer is yes!!!

King Lion with Hat

Male Lion with Tree.jpg

Female Lion with Tree.jpg

Oh with the gift of His Spirit with each one of us individually at work, it is just like Christmas everyday – evergreen thriving life with everlasting life blessings for us each one!!! 🙂

Lions and Christmas Trees

Is there power in all of our Father’s kids together – the answer is yes!!! Is it all from Jesus’ grace – yes!!! Therefore, there is divine in all numbers of our Father’s family of saints and that includes you and me, sweet family!!! We need our Father and each other always!!! Apart from Jesus, none of us could do anything, neither would we be anything or have anything!!! Who is that mighty powerful ONE – none other than JESUS!!! 🙂 Oh I am sooo thankful we have Him and that our Father has created us to be His forever family!!! Together we are a powerful family to make a divine difference in this world for our heavenly kingdom home!!! Oh now that all just makes me smile!!!

Pride of Lions

As we whom Father has put here consider these thoughts, we can know that each one of us is oh sooo special and we each shine Jesus in our own unique way that we and the whole world needs!!! YYYEEESSS WE CAN!!! Shine on as the you and Jesus team Christmas gift to the whole world as only you can!!! If the gift of you is never opened up and shared in the world, the world will forever miss out on the divineness of you and Father team!!! Oh I am sooo excited to see and hear the gift of the power of God in you and thru you!!! Let us behold  all the good our Father has for us with Him in us!!!

Lion and Babies

Much love to you precious saints!!!

Oh fire us up with your power, Lord Jesus as this song says here!!! WOOOHOOO!!! Oh that all makes me feel so warmed by Father’s powerful love and grace upon us all each one together – our forever family heavenly home fires burning within us bright!!! RRROOOAAARRR STRONG AND COURAGEOUS WITH HIS SPIRIT AFLAME IN YOU!!!! 🙂

Let Out the Roar
