You have asked me the question, “Lord, What must I do?” Do? I question. Papa responded, Haven’t I already done everything? What more could you do? If you are trying to "do," it means you are trying to "earn." What could you possibly earn from Me that I haven't already given you? I don’t want you to be focused on your self-works. It can become a great trap that ensnares many of My children. Refuse to go down the path of self-works...
I am a part of the fellowship of the unashamed.
I have Holy Ghost power!
The die has been cast.
I have stepped over the line.
The decision has been made.
I am a disciple of His.
I will not look back...
I AM: The righteousness of God (II Cor 5:21)
I AM: Called by name from before the foundation of the world (Isa 43:7)
I AM: Fearfully and wonderfully made (Psa 139:14)
I AM: Created to be the reflection of His Glory (Eph 1:12)
I AM: Exalted to the right hand of God the Father, a joint heir to the Kingdom of God with Jesus Christ (Rom 8:17)
I AM: Forgiven (Col 1:13-14)
I AM: Saved by grace through faith (Eph 2:8)
I AM: Justified (Rom 5:1)
Before I (Papa) created the earth there was darkness. What I had envisioned was still inside Me. But what happened when I spoke the words? It became what I spoke? I have given you the same ability. Take it not lightly, for you are My offspring and I desire for you to create as I create. Much is going to be entrusted to you as you step out and start using the gift I've given you. Yes, an increase is on its way. What would you like to create with Me?
Speak it out. Is it really that hard? Don't worry about your faith. Speak it out and keep speaking it out, and your faith will catch up with you. This is a matter of being willing. Your will is more powerful than you know! Why do you think the enemy wants to break your will! He wants to stop you from standing in My image, declaring, and responding like I do. He wants to either break your will to stop you from creating or give you a bad taste in life so you'll produce a negative effect with your mouth. So, he either wants to break it or curve it. Don't let him! WILL to not let him! Your will is powerful and a force to be reckoned with!
I want you to ask Me more of how I want you to use your will. Let Me train you and teach you. Take ownership of its power and stand in who you are! With your will, tell the enemy to loose everything that belongs to you! With your will, receive My abundant grace for your life. Start willing to do everything I've asked you to and you'll watch the rest of yourself fall into line and in sync with that action. Will. Make your mind up, and do it! Speak it, create it, and model it!
Ok guys! :) I couldn't pass this statement up!! John and I know this one first hand!! And I'm sure many of you if not all of you have gone through this!! It is definitely a part of the process we all go through.
Set your head like flint and keep a heart of gold as you move forward in what God alone has shared with you to do. Jesus made himself of no reputation... If we are being transformed into his image, well.. need I say more? . You already have what it take to make it to the end! God placed it in you! If God is for us, who can ultimately be against us!! If you will remain humble God will exalt and place you at a banqueting table in the presence of your enemies!! This is the God we serve!! He is the only one worth following!! Quoted from the movie UNBROKEN, "If you can take it, you can make it!",
Love you all!! We are here to encourage you on this journey!!
Blessings!! Your fellow sojourner, Amy
Lately, I keep hearing this phrase playing over and over inside of me, "God just wants to do life with us" like any good parent would. It's not about all of the works and glory. It's not about arriving, achieving, and success. Those things always come to an end anyway, don't they? Isn't it more about learning, growing, discovering, and beholding? God just wants to do life with us! He wants us to embrace the journey and enjoy the ride...
This is one of our favorite Graham Cooke stories... Living in Christ makes us vulnerable to laughter. Laughter is more than a choice; it’s a requirement for us that we be happy. God’s highest plan for our lives includes a desire for us to find, live in, and love the joy that is in Christ. God is good news! His love and presence is an absolute tonic for us.
You are an expression of God, so celebrate! Think about this…what can you celebrate, if you do not know who you are, or what God has placed in you? He made us in His image and behavior. Take a look at yourself, what attributes are in you that are like your heavenly Papa? It’s quite challenging to know what to bless this earth with, if you don’t even know what you have in yourself to contribute. Seek and you shall find…
I spent several years overseas in a variety of places. Single-minded to His call to the nations. To follow Him, lovesick, willing to do anything for Him. In the process and by the tutorship of the Holy Spirit and other gifted ministers of His Grace, I learned on the job...
I was contemplating the thought of what it must be like to dream with God so I figured, why think about it? I'll just ask Him. “Lord,” I said, "What is dreaming with you like?" He replied, "Amy, dreaming with Me is a practice of becoming who you are. All My children are dreamers. Many just don't know it or have not allowed themselves to dream anymore...
