Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ! Be encouraged and blessed this day as you read the Word God has for you and purpose in your heart to put into action the truths you learn. I encourage you to continue growing in the Lord and moving in the Spirit realm. God’s Spirit is being poured out in these days! Holy Spirit is moving through this land and through His people like a mighty whirl wind!
Be Encouraged for August 2013!
I want to share a vision God gave me a few days ago, I feel it is really important to share our testimonies and what God is doing in our lives. For, I believe these experiences are not just for me alone but for all who want to hear of His goodness. This experience brought me to a deeper understanding of the scriptures below. Don’t you love it when the Lord shows you revelation and an expanded view of scriptures as you read them, even when you have read them many times before? Truly Holy Spirit is our teacher and brings us into all truth and reveals the mysteries of God!
Acts 17:24 & 28
Vs. 24 “God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands.
Vs. 28 For in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.”
My Vision and experience with the Lord Jesus!
In the spirit I was standing beside my beautiful pond, I call it my pond because it is in my spiritual garden and I go there often. Jesus appeared before me with His arms outstretched and I immediately walked toward Him and was embraced in His arms. The love of God totally covered me and permeated into my inner most being so I was totally wrapped in the love of God inside and out! My feelings were so real and wonderful, I don’t have the words to adequately express… ecstasy comes to mind, yes, ecstasy. Then I totally disappeared into Jesus and I was no longer visible, only Jesus was standing there. Selah!
I heard the Lord say… remember Kay that I am in you and you are in Me! As you totally submit and release yourself to Me, renewing your mind, your will and your emotions in Me, you become more and more like me. You are continually growing into the character and likeness of Christ! Then when someone sees you, all they will see is Me, My Love, My character and My actions, more of Me and less of you. I am in you and you are in Me and we are in perfect unity!
Thinking on this experience, I have been moved beyond words. I keep reliving the awesomeness, the feelings and total love of Jesus in me. I am reminded that is why we are called the church and Holy Spirit lives/dwells in us, in our temple! God is living in us and not in a “building” made with human hands out of earthly materials! What a mighty God we serve and love, that He would reveal this mystery to us. A mystery it is, because those who don’t know Jesus as their Lord and Savior cannot even wrap their minds or thoughts around that concept!
We are so extremely special and I love it immensely! In case you haven’t thought about being special lately, I want to tell you once gain “you are extremely special and God loves you with an everlasting love!
Please feel free to contact me with any prayer requests you may have so I can pray with you in agreement. Also, I would like to hear your testimonies and how the Lord is moving in your life too! Be encouraged today!
Blessings and Miracles on your way!
Greetings, much love and encouragement to you today! I pray for wisdom as you make choices for your everyday life! May God reign supreme!
Here we are in March already! Where do the days go?
The Old Testament is such a wealth of teaching, training and inspiration for us on how to live the life God has ordained. We are to learn and put into practice the lessons we learn from the saints of old. If we would walk in these truths then we wouldn’t need to “go around the mountain” again, as the saying goes. We are to move forward with the teachings and promises of the Old Testament into our New Covenant with Christ Jesus and Kingdom life!
Lately, the Lord has been giving me “bullet” thoughts! Portions of thoughts will run through my mind. Or maybe specific words like obedience, men’s traditions, religious spirits or prejudices. Have you ever experienced that? As I have been meditating on these impressions, Holy Spirit has given me scriptures to go along with these thoughts. I have been on a very interesting journey these last few weeks.
As a friend and I were discussing the scriptures in Genesis 25:20-28, Holy Spirit dropped these words into my spirit, men’s traditions and obedience. We were looking at the account of Isaac and Rebekah. We had a good discussion and as you know iron sharpens iron! Later, I looked more closely at these scriptures with the words the Lord had given me in mind.
There is so much in these scriptures but this is what Holly Spirit wanted me to see.
Genesis 25:22-23 ~ Rebekah inquired of the Lord why she was having a troubled pregnancy. The Lord answered and told her what was happening then and what would happen in the future! Then she did what we do so much of the time in our lives today…
- She prayed and asked the Lord for answers
- He answered her questions and gave her a prophetic word for the future which carried some instruction & direction.
- As we read the remainder of these scriptures we see that the boys were raised according to the traditions of the day! The instruction the Lord gave to her was not followed!
The tradition or custom of the day was that the oldest son would receive the birthright, the blessing and double portion of the inheritance. But God had told her that the older son would serve the younger son and therefore it would not be according to their customs. By not heeding God’s Word and raising them accordingly, strife, deceit and deception became a constant companion throughout their lives. In order for Jacob to receive the blessing from his father, Isaac, he had to lie and deceive him and his brother. This was not part of God’s plan and we can certainly learn from their decisions.
Today we hear from God through His Word, through teachings, His prophets, and Holy Spirit speaking to us in our spirits. We must be quick to receive from God and be open and teachable to obey what He is directing us to do. It might not be according to the customs of our day!! Man’s plans, traditions, thoughts and the churches religious traditions don’t always line up with God’s. Selah!!
Isaiah 55:8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, says the LORD.”
Wow, when I saw this I began taking inventory of my life, of my thoughts and of my obedience to His guidance! How much more peaceful and joyful would our lives be if we would hear the Lord and obey His ways? I will leave these thoughts with you to meditate on for this time. I encourage you to draw closer to God, inquire of Him, hear his voice and then do what He tells you to do.
OBEY don’t DELAY !
Blessings & Miracles,
Greetings to you all! I send much love and encouragement to you and pray for wisdom for the choices you make for your everyday life!
I have been hearing the Lord say… “Eventful – this new season will be eventful. This season will be a time of transitions and changes. Do not have fear; trust Me for I will walk you through your next season just as I have walked with you up till now. The choice is always up to you, for I never leave you. Change and transition with Me will be good and fruitful!”
Then the Lord showed me a huge lion walking boldly through a field and the scripture came to my mind… “be bold, be brave for the Lord your God is with you.”
I encourage you to meditate on this word for the days ahead. Spend quality time with your Father and be eager & open to hear what the He has for you. Hear the changes He wants you to make in your life so that transition comes!
Why do you think He said not to fear? Because He knows that most of us don’t like the thought of change, we just want to be comfortable! But God’s ways are not our ways! And, if we choose to move with Him and make the changes and transitions ~ think of the opportunities waiting for us. He said changes with Him would be good and fruitful!So expect boldness to come as you move out, without fear, to minister as He gives you direction and wisdom! It is so exciting what the Lord is doing in these days! I look forward to hearing your testimonies of His goodness and what changes you will make.
Blessings & Miracles,
