Darkness & Light

“I walk in the presence of the Light and I am not afraid.”*

As darkness attempts to cover the world, the Light will always prevail. Keep this truth in your heart no matter what comes down the pike.

See yourself, daily, bathed in the Light of Christ. This inner radiance dissolves anything that is not divinely planned; dis-ease, lack, loss or limitation. You are wondrous in your manifestation of self.

Your desire to pursue this path of hope and glory, in the light, is the greatest gift you can give yourself.

Always find the light in every situation no matter what and leave the plan of your life to the divine planner.

Remember: the Light is always stronger than the darkness.

“I walk with Jesus Christ and I am not afraid!”*

Be Brave

You are an over-comer; more than a conqueror through the power of the Risen Christ.

Have faith, courage and understanding, this will take you far. Don’t doubt the information that you receive.

If you have a spiritual connection and you are centered before you connect, the truth will light up within you like a strong flashlight.

The ‘Inner Ticker’ races around inside of you, shouting to get your attention. All answers of truth are revealed within; reach out, pray and be.

On this Day, Let us Pray:

In the name which is above every name, in the name of Yeshua Jesus:

“We release God’s power to overcome any adversity, now, by Faith. We activate his angels that surround you to work now on your behalf; nothing can come against you. We affirm that Divine substance full of light and life flows through your Spirit, Soul and Body; where you dwell and move.” (HR)

“Never falter, go forward so boldly, so unafraid. I am beside you to help and strengthen you.” (GC)

A Vision of Hope

GodsFlowers

“For everything that is covered with be uncovered and everything now hidden will be made clear. What I say to you in the dark, tell the daylight. What you hear in whispers, shout it from the roof top!” (Mt. 10: 24-33)

You know something is on the horizon. You can feel it in the air and it is good! Is this the time to waiver in your belief or boldly step out in faith?

We are not to lose heart in the process. Go straight to God and trust in his divine timing, even if the vision has not been revealed. It is not a question of what God will do, but how one proceeds. Why?

You are being shaped like a ball of dough. Can you see it? The dough ball is perfectly round and even a bit shiny on the outside? Now, add we need to add a little more flour for substance and water for blessing.

In this season, God takes us down to the “valley to batter us into the shape of that vision.” It is in the valley that so many of us give up.” Don’t give up!

If you have not a vision from God, wait in anticipation. Don’t plan the party or the outcome. Trust there is a vision, even if you can’t see it.

God says, “My vision supersedes anything you can plan in your mind. Stay the course and keep your eyes fixed on me.”

“They who wait upon the Lord shall be renewed in strength; mount up with eagles wings. They shall run and not be weary; walk and not faint. (Is. 40:31)

Follow Me!

“What is that to thee; Follow Me!” (Jn. 21:22)

The rebirth is coming; it’s happening.

God uses ordinary people to carry out his plan.

We are being called to follow in the footsteps of Christ, moving from a life of what is familiar by stepping into the unknown. “My sheep hear my voice. I know them and they follow me.” (Jn. 10:27)

In his book, “My Utmost for His Highest”, Oswald Chambers asked this question: “Will you go out, not knowing where you are going?”

One of the most difficult questions to answer in ministry work is, “What do you expect to do, when you don’t know what you are going to do?”

“Whether I hear God’s call or not depends on the condition of my ears and what I hear depends upon my spiritual attitude.”

In the moment, God reveals to us via inspiration and insight the path we are to take.

Let your willingness be a continual expression of trust and joy.

One must learn to “go out” through her/his convictions, creeds, or experiences, until you come to the point in your faith where there is nothing between yourself and God. “For you shall go out with joy and be led out in peace.” (Is. 55:12)

“Stepping in and out with Christ requires one to get out of the way.” (Awakening the Inner Ticker of Life, pg. 57)

Shoes of Peace

“God, give perfect peace to those who keep their purpose firm and put their trust in you.” (Is. 26:3)

 

Are you wearing the “Shoes of Peace?”

In ministry and in life, our feet will take us many places.

Look at Jesus, he moved with a purpose. He was on a mission and wore the “Shoes of Peace” everywhere he went.

Even during Jesus’ most difficult and vulnerable time, his feet were still moving until they were nailed to the cross.

Once resurrected, Jesus sported a supernatural pair of shoes to move around in while visiting friends and family.

Jesus traveled beyond space and time; stepping through a wall, startling those in his midst. His first words to those gathered in that special room were, “Peace be with you.”

Do you believe you are called to be Christ’s hands and feet?

 

“For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared.” (Eph. 6)

The Promises of Lent – A Time of Prayer & Healing: Week 2

Week 2

Are you ready to leave fear behind?

“Jesus said, “I was condemned because of who I was. Fear came out in great forces. It was not my will to stop the storms. I wanted man to see me, but he/she did not have eyes to see or ears to hear.”

Second Promise:

“Everyone will live in prosperity, enjoying life, for there will be nothing to fear.”

Prayer:

“I walk with Jesus Christ and I am not afraid.

I walk in the presence of the Light and I am not afraid.

The Light is stronger than the darkness and I am not afraid.

I walk with Jesus Christ and I am not afraid.” (30 Messages of Hope, pg. 49)

Lent is the last sign of spiritual hibernation, just before spring appears on the horizon. Darkness is being forced out of its nest, and we follow a liturgical cycle or sacred wheel, where one walks with Christ, every step of the way, without fear.

Awareness – A Gift from God

“I am your guide, strength and help will come to you, just trust me wholly. Walk in my ways and know that help will come.” (God Calling)

Awareness is a real gift from God.

During this Season of Gratitude, we encounter those who truly have needs and those who do not.

A few days back, I was leaving a local plaza. I proceeded to my car and placed my bags in the back seat. I looked up and saw two individuals walking quickly in my direction. I got into the car and locked my doors.

Soon, the man and woman were in the parking spot next to me, asking me to roll down my window.

I cracked the window just enough to hear, but not enough for anyone to put their hand inside and the ignition was running. The pair kept a healthy distance. Perhaps, it was the large angels that surrounded my car that kept them at bay.

The request was “Can you help us?”

I listened and gave the man suggestions on how to get local assistance. He was not interested and had a rebuttal for each point. He wanted cash to buy food. He tried every angle to get my attention and bitterly said to me, “Well, you have yourself a Merry Christmas.” I didn’t respond.

My Spirit was not moved to be of assistance, but to drive away.

 “We need not fear any dangers at night or sudden attacks during the day. In Him we trust.”(Psalm 91)

The confirmation came that I was doing the right thing; as I drove away I heard the word, “Scam” and then my phone rang for a real need.

It has been my experience that God will make you aware of the people that require your assistance without putting you in harm’s way.

Keep your heart open; stay aware and stay safe.

I am going to share this great little travel prayer with you. I pray you and your beloveds stay safe, whether you are traveling to the store, across the nation or around the world:

“I place the Light of Christ before me, in back of me, to the left and to the right and within. May I do no evil and receive no evil. “(Hilda Charlton)
