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)

Son Day for Sunday

“We walk by faith and not by sight.”

Belief is everything as it is, entwined with one’s faith. The action taken is measured by one’s belief and exercised through faith.

Yes, you have been tested and refined as one who is rebuilt, repaired and restored via the power of the Spirit.

Step out in tenacity and perseverance and close the door behind you.

The door in front of you is open and ready for you to pass through.

Walk in blind faith as a child of the Living God. You are loved, blessed, whole and complete.

“If you believe, you will receive.”

God’s Firewall

“In the name, through the power and by the Word of the Living Christ, God builds a wall of flame around me.”

I received a confirmation to a vision I had regarding a message that was passed on to me, focusing on these words taken from Zech. 2:5, “I will be a protective wall around my people.”

The vision I had was of a “Wall of Light” (flame); golden yellow, like a thick fog, “I will build a wall of fire.”

Jesus said, “You have a firewall around you and your space, like a firewall that protects your computer.”

We put Jesus in the middle of every situation; in between ourselves and any problem or issue that comes against us.We have not been given a spirit of fear, but a powerful, loving and self-controlled mind.” (2 Tim. 1:7)

Through God’s Grace of Love we are raised above our own errors to meet the challenges of the moment.

“Show your faith and walk in trust.”

Son Day for Sunday

Faith in action heals the heart!

Many feel powerless over their present condition or situation. The way to mitigate the feeling of oppression is to transfer the power and solution to God, “It’s not always about the bells and whistles of life. It’s about staying the course with me. Don’t be distracted by the outer trappings of life. Make a plan and stick to it.”

Trying to figure out a problem or making a new decision requires faith in the in action.

By acquiring or re-activating one’s faith, the layout of the playing field has now changed, “The One who prepared us for this very purpose is God, who gave us the Ruach as a pledge. We are always full of courage; for we walk by faith, not by sight.” (2 Cor. 5:5-7)

Where there was once a dry space of distress, misunderstanding, indecision or grief, now you have someone standing with you, “It was then that I carried you.”

“God will move mountains, but you better bring the bull dozer. We have to dig in our heels until the miracle happens.” * Go the extra mile!

“Dig those ditches and prepare for rain.” (2 Kgs. 3:16)

The Quiet Call of Responsibility

Come take my hand. We have a planet to rebuild, lives to restore and hope for a better tomorrow” (Awakening the Inner Ticker of Life, Inspirational Messages of God’s Love & Healing, Page 14)

As God blesses us with our gifts and talents, we, in turn answer the quiet call of responsibility. We pass on what was freely given to us. “Much more is required to whom much more is given.”

If your gift is to speak and inspire others, do it according to your faith; not according to the opinion of another.

If your gift is to reach others with the written word, be honest. Wait on the stirring of the Spirit for further inspiration.

Stand tall, a cut above the rest. Don’t be dejected by voices of dissension. They soon fade out of the picture.

Humanity is breaking all around us. People in distress do not care about how you cross your T’s or dot your i’s, or whether you describe God with a pronoun of he or she. Suffering souls want to know that someone is there to listen; to hold a hand or stand with another exiting this life or welcoming one into a new mode of being.

The quiet call of responsibility is the ability to walk the walk and live it.

Much is required from the person to whom much is given; much more is required from the person to whom much more is given.” (Lk. 12:48)

The Pudding of Faith!

What are you cooking up in the kitchen of life? Is anything missing in the recipe?
Many times, we become discouraged when things don’t work out according to our expectations. There are the hidden ingredients in the mix; the great mysteries of all life; the unanswered questions.
God has now taken a moment to turn down the dial on the hand mixer to its lowest setting, in order to get our attention.
It is in times such as these; we are called to bring forth a special ingredient in our divine walk with God, the Pudding of Faith.

Spiritually Prepared – Finding a Balance

This time of year makes one aware that storm season is upon us, and there are many questions to ponder whether one is physically/spiritually prepared while finding a balance.

What happens when you know a storm is coming, but it has not yet arrived? Your awareness is heightened and you find yourself a bit off-center.

Perhaps it is time to check all the supplies and see what is missing.

Is there enough water to weather this storm, keeping in mind that each human and each pet needs one gallon of water per day? Can I draw from a living water source for my Spirit to quench the anxiety?

Do I have non-perishable food supplies on hand? Will God feed my Spirit and rebuild my strength?

Now, check all flashlights and batteries; and ask yourself, “Is my inner light shining brightly or do I need to wipe the lens?”

Do you believe you have done everything you can do; just for today, leaving tomorrow alone?

Can you step out in faith, using all the spiritual tools at your disposal to move beyond any initial crisis, still believing and hoping?

Are your feet firmly planted on Holy Ground?

Do you see a break in the clouds? Look closely!

You are more prepared than you think you are!

“Let not the difficulties of life, like weeds choke the rest of your soul; suffocate and tether the soaring freedom of your spirit.

Rise above these earth bounds into newness of life; abundant and victorious.” (God at Eventide)
