1 Who has believed our message?  To whom has the Lord revealed his powerful arm?  My servant grew up in the Lord’s presence like a tender green shoot, like a root in dry ground.  There was nothing beautiful or majestic about his appearance, nothing to attract us to him.  He was despised and rejected—a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief.  We turned our backs on him and looked the other way. He was despised, and we did not care.  Yet it was our weaknesses he carried; it was our sorrows that weighed him down.  And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God, a punishment for his own sins!  But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins.  He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed. All of us, like sheep, have strayed away.  We have left God’s paths to follow our own. Yet the Lord laid on him the sins of us all.

For I’m not going to haul people into court endlessly, I’m not going to be angry forever. Otherwise, people would lose heart. These souls I created would tire out and give up. I was angry, good and angry, because of Israel’s sins. I struck him hard and turned away in anger, while he kept at his stubborn, willful ways. When I looked again and saw what he was doing, I decided to heal him, lead him, and comfort him, creating a new language of praise for the mourners. Peace to the far-off, peace to the near-at-hand,” says God— “and yes, I will heal them.”

Isaiah 61:1-3 (MSG)
The Spirit of
God, the Master, is on me because God anointed me. He sent me to preach good news to the poor, heal the heartbroken, Announce freedom to all captives, pardon all prisoners. God sent me to announce the year of his grace— a celebration of God’s destruction of our enemies— and to comfort all who mourn, To care for the needs of all who mourn in Zion, give them bouquets of roses instead of ashes, Messages of joy instead of news of doom, a praising heart instead of a languid spirit.

[Comment:  The word “life” in this verse is the Greek word “zoe”, which means “life real and genuine, a life active and vigorous, devoted to God, blessed” and “the state of one who is possessed of vitality”.]

John 14:12-14 (NLT)
12 “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. 13 You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. 14 Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!

John 15:7 (NKJV)
If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.

John 16:23-24 (NKJV)
23 “And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you. 24 Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.

Acts 3:6-9, 16 (NLT)
But Peter said, “I don’t have any silver or gold for you. But I’ll give you what I have. In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, get up and walk!”  Then Peter took the lame man by the right hand and helped him up. And as he did, the man’s feet and ankles were instantly healed and strengthened. He jumped up, stood on his feet, and began to walk! Then, walking, leaping, and praising God, he went into the Temple with them.All the people saw him walking and heard him praising God. 16 [Peter said,] “Through faith in the name of Jesus, this man was healed—and you know how crippled he was before. Faith in Jesus’ name has healed him before your very eyes.”

Acts 4:5-12 (NLT)
The next day the council of all the rulers and elders and teachers of religious law met in Jerusalem. Annas the high priest was there, along with Caiaphas, John, Alexander, and other relatives of the high priest. They brought in the two disciples and demanded, “By what power, or in whose name, have you done this?”  Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, “Rulers and elders of our people, are we being questioned today because we’ve done a good deed for a crippled man? Do you want to know how he was healed? 10 Let me clearly state to all of you and to all the people of Israel that he was healed by the powerful name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, the man you crucified but whom God raised from the dead. 11 For Jesus is the one referred to in the Scriptures, where it says, ‘The stone that you builders rejected has now become the cornerstone.’  12 There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.”

Acts 14:8-10 (NLT)
While they were at Lystra, Paul and Barnabas came upon a man with crippled feet. He had been that way from birth, so he had never walked. He was sitting and listening as Paul preached. Looking straight at him, Paul realized he had faith to be healed. 10 So Paul called to him in a loud voice, “Stand up!” And the man jumped to his feet and started walking.

Acts 28:7-10 (NLT)
Near the shore where we landed was an estate belonging to Publius, the chief official of the island. He welcomed us and treated us kindly for three days. As it happened, Publius’s father was ill with fever and dysentery. Paul went in and prayed for him, and laying his hands on him, he healed him. Then all the other sick people on the island came and were healed. 10 As a result we were showered with honors, and when the time came to sail, people supplied us with everything we would need for the trip.

Romans 4:19-21 (AMP)
He did not weaken in faith when he considered the [utter] impotence of his own body, which was as good as dead because he was about a hundred years old, or [when he considered] the barrenness of Sarah’s [deadened] womb. No unbelief or distrust made him waver (doubtingly question) concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong and was empowered by faith as he gave praise and glory to God, Fully satisfied and assured that God was able and mighty to keep His word and to do what He had promised.

Romans 8:10-11 (AMP)
10 If Christ lives in you, though your [natural] body is dead because of sin, your spirit is alive because of righteousness [which He provides]. 11 And if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit, who lives in you.

Romans 10:8-10 (NLT)
In fact, it says, “The message is very close at hand; it is on your lips and in your heart.” And that message is the very message about faith that we preach: If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.

[Comment:  The word “saved” is the Greek word “sozo”, which means saved, healed, delivered, preserved, & in health!]

Romans 8:11 (AMP)
And if the Spirit of Him Who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, [then] He Who raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also restore to life your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies through His Spirit Who dwells in you.

2 Corinthians 1:20 (AMP)
For as many as are the promises of God, they all find their Yes in Him [Christ]. For this reason we also utter the Amen (so be it) to God through Him [in His Person and by His agency] to the glory of God.

2 Corinthians 1:20 (NLV)
 Jesus says yes to all of God’s many promises. It is through Jesus that we say, “Let it be so,” when we give thanks to God.

2 Corinthians 1:20-22 (MSG)
Whatever God has promised gets stamped with the Yes of Jesus. In him, this is what we preach and pray, the great Amen, God’s Yes and our Yes together, gloriously evident. God affirms us, making us a sure thing in Christ, putting his Yes within us. By his Spirit he has stamped us with his eternal pledge—a sure beginning of what he is destined to complete.

2 Corinthians 10:3-5 (AMP)
For though we walk (live) in the flesh, we are not carrying on our warfare according to the  flesh and using mere human weapons. For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds, [Inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One)

2 Corinthians 10:4-5 (NLV)
We do not use those things to fight with that the world uses. We use the things God gives to fight with and they have power. Those things God gives to fight with destroy the strong-places of the devil. We break down every thought and proud thing that puts itself up against the wisdom of God.

[Comment: Cast down those thoughts and imaginations that don’t line up with the Word of God.]

Galatians 3:13-14 (MSG)
Christ redeemed us from that self-defeating, cursed life by absorbing it completely into himself. Do you remember the Scripture that says, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”? That is what happened when Jesus was nailed to the cross: He became a curse, and at the same time dissolved the curse. And now, because of that, the air is cleared and we can see that Abraham’s blessing is present and available for non-Jews, too. We are all able to receive God’s life, his Spirit, in and with us by believing—just the way Abraham received it.

Ephesians 6:10-17 (AMP)
In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides]. Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil. For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere. Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in your place]. Stand therefore [hold your ground], having tightened the belt of truth around your loins and having put on the breastplate of integrity and of moral rectitude and right standing with God, And having shod your feet in preparation [to face the enemy with the firm-footed stability, the promptness, and the readiness produced by the good news] of the Gospel of peace. Lift up over all the [covering] shield of saving faith, upon which you can quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked [one]. And take the helmet of salvation and the sword that the Spirit wields, which is the Word of God.

Philippians 1:6 (AMP)
And I am convinced and sure of this very thing, that He Who began a good work in you will continue until the day of Jesus Christ [right up to the time of His return], developing [that good work] and perfecting and bringing it to full completion in you.

Philippians 2:13 (AMP)
[Not in your own strength] for it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in you [energizing and creating in you the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight.
[Comment:
  God’s will — healing– is working in you. for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.]

Philippians 4:6-8 (AMP)
Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them].

2 Timothy 1:7 (AMP)
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.
[Comment:
  Fear is not of God. Rebuke it! For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.]

Hebrews 10:23, 25 (AMP)
So let us seize and hold fast and retain without wavering the hope we cherish and confess and our acknowledgment of it, for He Who promised is reliable (sure) and faithful to His word. Not forsaking or neglecting to assemble together [as believers], as is the habit of some people, but admonishing (warning, urging, and encouraging) one another, and all the more faithfully as you see the day approaching.

Hebrews 10:35
(NLT) So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord. Remember the great reward it brings you!
(MSG) But we’re not quitters who lose out. Oh, no! We’ll stay with it and survive, trusting all the way.

Hebrews 11:6 (NLT)
And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely [earnestly; diligently] seek him.

Hebrews 11:11 (AMP)
Because of faith also Sarah herself received physical power to conceive a child, even when she was long past the age for it, because she considered [God] Who had given her the promise to be reliable and trustworthy and true to His word.

Hebrews 13:8 (AMP)
Jesus Christ (the Messiah) is [always] the same, yesterday, today, [yes] and forever (to the ages).
[Comment:
  Jesus Christ has never changed. What He did in the Bible, He will do for you today. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.]

James 1:2-7 (NIV)
Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.  5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.  That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.

James 3:17 (AMP)
But the wisdom from above is first of all pure (undefiled); then it is peace-loving, courteous (considerate, gentle). [It is willing to] yield to reason, full of compassion and good fruits; it is wholehearted and straightforward, impartial and unfeigned (free from doubts, wavering, and insincerity).

James 4:7-8 (AMP)
So be subject to God. Resist the devil [stand firm against him], and he will flee from you. Come close to God and He will come close to you. [Recognize that you are] sinners, get your soiled hands clean; [realize that you have been disloyal] wavering individuals with divided interests, and purify your hearts [of your spiritual adultery].

James 5:14-15 (AMP)
Is anyone among you sick? He should call in the church elders (the spiritual guides). And they should pray over him, anointing him with oil in the Lord’s name. And the prayer [that is] of faith will save him who is sick, and the Lord will restore him; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.

1 Peter 1:6-7 (NLT)
So be truly glad.  There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you must endure many trials for a little while. These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.

1 Peter 2:24 (AMP)
He personally bore our sins in His [own] body on the tree [as on an altar and offered Himself on it], that we might die (cease to exist) to sin and live to righteousness. By His wounds you have been healed.

1 Peter 5:7-9 (AMP)
Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully. Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring in fierce hunger, seeking someone to seize upon and devour. Withstand him; be firm in faith [against his onset–rooted, established, strong, immovable, and determined], knowing that the same (identical) sufferings are appointed to your brotherhood (the whole body of Christians) throughout the world.

1 John 3:21-22 (NLT)
Dear friends, if we don’t feel guilty, we can come to God with bold confidence. 22 And we will receive from him whatever we ask because we obey him and do the things that please him.

1 John 5:14-15 (NKJV)
14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.

3 John 1:2 (AMP)
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in every way and [that your body] may keep well, even as [I know] your soul keeps well and prospers.
Revelation 12:11 (AMP)
And they have overcome (conquered) him by means of the blood of the Lamb and by the utterance of their testimony, for they did not love and cling to life even when faced with death [holding their lives cheap till they had to die for their witnessing].

NOTES from a Pastor, Thurman Scrivner:
God’s Word really does work, but guess who’s going to make it work for you? YOU!–if you walk in obedience to His Word and if you take these promises and do what He says.
How do you release your faith? You speak it. What’s in a man’s heart comes out where?–his mouth (Matt. 12:34). That’s why God tells us to hide His Word in our heart.
What you see (in the natural) with your eyes is not reality.  God’s Word is reality. This Book cannot fail you unless you doubt! Until it becomes a reality to you, you cannot receive something by faith that you don’t believe is yours.

A prayer Thurman prayed when he was in great need of a healing: “Life and death is in the power of the tongue (Proverbs 18:21), so one more time, Lord, I confess that You’re my healer, You’re my deliverer, You’re my Lord and my God. I John 4:4 says that greater is the Holy Spirit in me than the devil who’s here trying to make me sick, so I tell you, Satan, in the name of Jesus, to get out! I’m going to get up and go to work, and I’m going to have a blessed day today!”

Why is it so many Christians don’t produce any fruit? Where is fruit produced on the vine?–On the branches. Who are the branches?–We are. (John 15:2 says, “Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.”)

God Asked Me – Why Don’t You Have Hope and Expectation?

I wasn’t quite awake – you know that state when a thought comes to mind but you’re not awake yet?  It was a thought that would definitely wake me up.

“Why are you afraid of opening the mail?

Why don’t you have an attitude of expectancy and hope?”

In my sleepy state the question rolled around in my head.  I could see the box of mail that was by the front door in my head.

I knew the Holy Spirit was speaking to me.  It was definitely louder than the usual still small voice of the Lord.  “Why don’t you have an attitude of expectancy and hope?”

The box of mail.  I was experiencing financial challenges and didn’t want to face them.  But I now felt as though my identity had, indeed, been stolen – only not through a perpetrator or thief, but by my own doing.  I didn’t want to open the mail, as I didn’t want to be reminded of my financial situation.

But in the midst of our circumstances, we need to remember that God is indeed the restorer of all things.  Just as you’re feeling down and out, depressed, discouraged or disillusioned, God can turn things around and restore you to not only what you had before, but better than you ever expected.

Think of Job’s story in the Bible.  He had everything he owned taken away, including all his livestock and his home.  Then, all seven of his children died.  When he heard this news, all of which happened at the same time, Job stood up, tore his robe in grief and fell to the ground to worship God.  It says in Job 1:22, “In all of this, Job did not sin by blaming God.”

After Job’s possessions and his family were gone, then his health was compromised with terrible boils from his head to his feet.  His wife encouraged him to curse God, but Job refused.    Job 2:10 says, “But Job replied, ‘You talk like a foolish woman. Should we accept only good things from the hand of God and never anything bad?’  So in all this, Job said nothing wrong.”

Three friends came to visit Job, but Job didn’t speak for the first seven days and seven nights.  His friends then tried to rationalize with him.  Job never cursed God throughout his situation.  The book of Job continues to outline the discussions between Job and his three friends.  And, in the end, God showed up – and in a big way.  God appeared in a whirlwind and spoke with Job directly.  After a lengthy discussion with Job, God told Job that He was disappointed that Job’s friends had not spoken accurately about Him, and instructed Job to pray for his friends.

Job 42:10 “When Job prayed for his friends, the Lord restored his fortunes. In fact, the Lord gave him twice as much as before!”

Job 42:12-13 “So the Lord blessed Job in the second half of his life even more than in the beginning. For now he had 14,000 sheep, 6,000 camels, 1,000 teams of oxen, and 1,000 female donkeys.  He also gave Job seven more sons and three more daughters.”

Job 42:16-17 “Job lived 140 years after that, living to see four generations of his children and grandchildren.  Then he died, an old man who had lived a long, full life.

Back to my situation.  Why was I having financial challenges?  Where was God in the midst of all of my circumstances?  I was quoting God’s Word – why wasn’t it working?   Why weren’t God’s promises to me manifesting themselves?  And here’s the answer.  Pride and disobedience.

I didn’t hear God’s voice during my financial difficulties, because I really wasn’t reading His Word or trying to have a close relationship with Him.  My fearful attitude and more importantly, my constant negative words, opened the door to the enemy.  Being disobedient, having a wrong attitude and verbalizing negative feelings (which basically mean you are prophesying negative events to come to pass in your life) opens the doors to allow Satan in your life.  After all, Satan came to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10).  And steal and destroy he did.  And, I allowed him to kill my spirit.

My fear, shame and constant concern over the status of my situation was, for lack of a better term, my idol.  My idol, you may ask?  Yes.  You see, anything or anyone that you put before or above God is an idol.  God should come first in your life.

Let me assure you that God was not absent during this process.  Remember the verse that says that He will never leave us nor forsake us.  God is never the problem.  I was the problem.  God’s Word is full of promises, and if we believe them, we should take the time to meditate on His Word in order to get them deep into our heart.  If you’re not giving Him any time, how will you know what to do?  How can you receive further instructions?

Let’s set the record straight.  Yes, God’s Word does promise prosperity.  Was my church wrong in teaching me about the importance of quoting and believing God’s Word?  Absolutely not.  What I failed to realize was that my pride and choices to put other things above God nullified the fulfillment of His promise of prosperity in my life.

Proverbs 29:23 tells us that a man’s pride will bring him low, but the humble in spirit will retain honor.  I was indeed brought low.  But the good news is that God can, will, and continue to pick me up and put me back on the right track.

I asked God what I should do differently in my life to get back on track with Him.  What do I need to do, Lord, to see the fulfillment of Your promises in my life?   God explained to me what I can do to realize His promises.

God taught me that here are 3 weapons, so to speak, that we can use to combat the enemy – 3 weapons to handle any type of spiritual warfare.  First, standing on God’s promises (God’s Word) is a weapon.  Second, praise – or praising God for what He has done, is doing, and will do, is a weapon.  Lastly, prayer – praying to God and asking Him is a weapon.

No matter what happens to you during your life, be confident that He can turn your life around for the good.  He can take anything you have messed up and work through it.  He is the ultimate provider, the ultimate healer, the ultimate friend, the ultimate Father and the ultimate Savior.  Glory to God!

Hope and expectation?  You bet. No matter what has happened, focus your attention on hoping in God and expecting His best.  And, if it doesn’t seem to be going the way you think, ask God.  Ask God.  Ask God.  Ask Him what is preventing the fulfillment of His promises in your life.  Ask Him what needs to change or what you need to do differently.  Remember – it’s a relationship with God, not a religion.  God is real and He will direct your path, if you ask Him. [Proverbs 3:6]  If you do your part – seeking God – He’ll do His part – directing your path.  Concerned that you’re not hearing His voice?  Find a comfy chair and get quiet.  Read His Word and ask Him to speak to you.  Listen for His still, small voice.  And, whatever He tells you, be rest assured it will always line up with the Word of God.

Hebrews 10:23 “Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise.”

God Asks: What is Your Most Prized Possession?

One day, God shows me a vision of two hands holding an alabaster jar.  The beautiful translucent white jar was very carefully held by two extended hands being slightly raised up in the air.  Think of yourself carefully holding an incredible almost round white alabaster jar away from you, just as if you were giving it to someone.

Then God said to me, “She gave me her prized possession”.  God was referencing Mark 14:3-8, which says:

Meanwhile, Jesus was in Bethany at the home of Simon, a man who had previously had leprosy. While he was eating, a woman came in with a beautiful alabaster jar of expensive perfume made from essence of nard. She broke open the jar and poured the perfume over his head.

Some of those at the table were indignant. “Why waste such expensive perfume?” they asked. “It could have been sold for a year’s wages and the money given to the poor!” So they scolded her harshly.

But Jesus replied, “Leave her alone. Why criticize her for doing such a good thing to me? You will always have the poor among you, and you can help them whenever you want to. But you will not always have me. She has done what she could and has anointed my body for burial ahead of time. I tell you the truth, wherever the Good News is preached throughout the world, this woman’s deed will be remembered and discussed.” 
[
This story is also told in Matthew 26 and Luke 7.]

When God said to me that the woman had given Him her prized possession, I mentally surveyed the possessions in my home.  I could not think of one thing that came to mind that I would consider a “prized possession”.

I then asked God, “What is my prized possession?”

God answered, “Your heart.”

My response: “Lord, I give you my whole heart.”

Matthew 22:37 (AMP) And Jesus replied to him, “ ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’

Mark 12:28-30 (AMP) 28 Then one of the scribes [an expert in Mosaic Law] came up and listened to them arguing [with one another], and noticing that Jesus answered them well, asked Him, “Which commandment is first and most important of all?” 29 Jesus answered, “The first and most important one is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord; 30 and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul (life), and with all your mind (thought, understanding), and with all your strength.’

Thoughts Can Make or Break You

“You have broken your own spirit by how you have thought – your thoughts are important”, God said to me one morning.  As He’s been explaining to me, your thoughts are crucial to your success – your ability to rise above your circumstances and believe that God has something better for you.

One day, the Holy Spirit explained to me a process He called, “Our Daily Life Cycle – How to Succeed”.   Here’s the sequence:

What you See/Read/Hear

Leads to:  Thoughts
(You think about what you see/read/hear)

Leads to:  Heart
  (What you think about gets into your heart)

Leads to:  Our Words
   (What is in your heart is expressed by your words)

Leads to:  Our Actions

Seeds start with what we see, what we read or what we hear.

The soil is what we think about – what we meditate on.  If you have good soil, you will control your thoughts and emotions to align with God’s Word and promises.  Can I say this?  Yes, I can – think positive thoughts.  Give time and attention to thinking on the uplifting events, thanking God for what He has done, is doing and will do for you.  If you have bad soil, if you think on negative things, if you harbor unforgiveness, resentment or ill-will toward others, these are things which God wants you to get rid of.  (For more about our thoughts, check this article entitled, “Your Words Will Not Return Void”.

Thoughts that we think about over and over again become seeds.  The germination of the seed occurs in our heart.  The more time we give to a thought, the more it gets into our heart.  We can choose what we think about.  There’s that free will, again.  Yes, God has given us a free will.  It’s our choice what “seeds” we allow ourselves to see, hear and read.  It’s our choice what “soil” we want by thinking on the positive things of God or the negative things of the world.  The seeds that grow in your heart produce fruit.  Here’s a good article called “What You Speak About Comes From Your Heart”.

Our words and actions are the result (fruit) of what’s been growing in our heart.  Our lives are influenced by the type of fruit we’re producing, either good or bad fruit.  Remember the verse in Psalms that says out of the abundance of our heart, our mouth speaks.  We speak what’s in our heart.  Do you think you have faith in God’s promises?  Here’s how to double-check:  what do you talk about?  What do you confess out loud?  (Check out this article entitled, “Believe With Your Heart and Confess With Your Mouth”.)

The interesting point that the Holy Spirit explained to me about this thought process is that this is how our thought, mind and action processes work whether you believe in God or not.  Remember that God made you and I in His ‘likeness’ (just like Him) and ‘image’ and He gave us the same ability to change things by using the most powerful force in the known universe: FAITH! (the absolute trust and confidence in God’s Word).

So what’s the first thing we should do to change our attitude, and thus change our life?  Seek God first!

Think about these bible verses:
Proverbs 23:7 (AMP) “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.”

Miracle: God Saved Our Home from a Fire

My best friend and roommate, Linda, came home one day and announced that she purchased 10 cases of water!  They were in the truck and back seat of her car – could I bring them into the house?  “What are we going to do with 10 cases of water?”, I asked.  “We’ll use them!” was her response.  Little did I know that just a few days later, those cases of water would really come in handy.

We live in townhouse #2 of a row of 5 town homes.  Some of these homes share an adjoining wall.  One Saturday afternoon in August 2015, I was sitting on the back patio my friend Donna, while Linda was in the house reading.  “It’s too hot to sit outside”, she explained.  She was right – it was over 100 degrees!

Well, it was just after 3:00 in the afternoon when we suddenly heard a very loud “BOOM”.  I immediately put on my flip flops and ran through the back door, through the house, and out the front door to try and find out what had caused the loud explosion.  I immediately realized that the town home two doors down – townhouse #4 was not only on fire – the flames were shooting up to what looked like about 10 or 12 feet!  SHOCK!

Charlotte, who lived in the town home that experienced an explosion and was on fire, came running out of the house screaming, “CALL 911, CALL 911, CALL 911!”

Linda, Donna and I immediately went into action.  We called 911. We recognized that the fire had already spread to the homes on either side – home #3 and home #5.  As the home next door was on fire, we ran to help them.  As our next door neighbor, Judy, was carrying one of three dogs out of the house, Linda helped her and I went into the smoke-filled home to find her husband, Harry.  Harry was trying to put papers into a small suitcase.  Due to the heaviness of the smoke, I grabbed papers out of his hand, shoved them into the suitcase, and exclaimed, “You have to get out of your house – NOW!”  My thought was that if I took the suitcase, he would follow.  He did.

Linda called to me to move our cars out of our garage, due to the close proximity of the fire – after all, the house next door to us was also on fire and our home is only about 3 feet away from this home.  We grabbed our precious dog and our computers, and ran outside.  Due to the heat, Donna took our dog and computers and put them all in the car.  She started the car to have A/C on for the dog.  Remember – it’s over 100 degrees outside!

Linda and I made eye contact and went into our house to pray.  We commanded the fire to not touch our house, in Jesus’ Name.  [Remember, Jesus said to speak to your mountain and it will be removed.]  We plead the blood of Jesus over our home.  “Nothing missing, nothing broken”, we prayed.  We prayed for the safety and security of others, in Jesus’ Name.

We then ran outside to help everyone else.  Linda recognized that house #5 was on fire, and felt the need to go to that home.  She knocked on the front door and recognized that there was a dog inside – but our neighbors were not home.  She immediately found someone, who was then able to get a fireman to break open the door.  The neighbor ran up the stairs – with flames on either side of him – and grab the neighbor’s large dog.  Another neighbor volunteered to take the dog to their house to keep cool.

Those 10 cases of water?  Yeah.  They came in handy.  We kept our garage door open and would carry the cases of water that were stacked up inside our home out to the firemen, who were standing about 3 feet from our property all the way down to the last house.  In all, we heard that over 15 fire trucks showed up, of which only 3 could fit in front and around the court in which our homes reside.  Some of these trucks came from over 20 miles away.  We were thankful for the fireman who hosed our home down with water, as the flames came within about 5 feet from our house, and even closer if you consider that we have a wood arbor that nearly touches our neighbor’s home.

The fire started around 3:15 in the afternoon and the fire trucks left after 10:00 p.m. with a warning that we should watch the homes in case the fire started up again!  Which it did, by the way, twice.  Thank You, Lord, He had a fire truck come back and check the property around 11:30, in which the fireman saw a spark reignite, and the owner of the home come by around 1:00 p.m. who happen to notice the fire reignite yet again and called the fire department!

There was much more to tell about this situation, but here are the amazing miracles that God performed – first, our house was protected.  In fact, we found burnt embers on our wood arbor and on our wood balcony in the back of our house, all of which could have sparked our house to catch on fire, but did not.  Glory to God!

Second, and this is really amazing, there was absolutely no smell of smoke inside our home.  We left both the garage door open as well as the door from the garage to the home.  We kept opening the door to carry cases of water out to the firemen.  We kept opening the doors to let our neighbors and people inside.  We also opened our side patio doors to the fire chief and all of people that he interviewed.  While the smell of smoke was heavy outside, there was no smell of smoke inside our home.

Take a step outside our home – there was an extreme smell of smoke.  Take a step inside our home – NO smell of smoke.  Repeat.  Repeat again and again.  We NEVER experienced the smell of smoke in our house.

It was a Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego moment.

In the book of Daniel, King Nebuchadnezzar set up a golden image and commanded that all his officials bow down before it. All who failed to do so would be thrown into a blazing furnace. Certain officials informed the king that the three Jewish youths Hanania, Mishael, and Azaria, who bore the Babylonian names Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and whom the king had appointed to high office in Babylon, were refusing to worship the golden statue.  The three were brought before Nebuchadnezzar, where they informed the king that their God would be with them.  Nebuchadnezzar commanded that these 3 men, wearing their robes, trousers, and other clothes, were to be bound and thrown into the blazing furnace, heated seven times hotter than normal, but when the king looked he saw four figures, and not three, (one looked like the son of God) walking unharmed in the flames. Seeing this, Nebuchadnezzar brought the youths out of the flames.  Everyone saw that the fire had not harmed their bodies, nor was a hair of their heads singed; their robes were not scorched, and there was no smell of fire on them.  Then Nebuchadnezzar said, “Praise be to the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who has sent his angel and rescued his servants!  He promoted them to even higher office, decreeing that any who spoke against their God should be torn limb from limb.

We were reminded of the verses in Malachi 3:10-11:
10 Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,” Says the Lord of hosts,
“If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.
11 “And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, so that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,” Says the Lord of hosts

God rebuked the devourer for our sake.  More than a year later, we still thank God for protecting our home. He is amazing!!

Love bears all things [regardless of what comes], believes all things [looking for the best in each one], hopes all things [remaining steadfast during difficult times], endures all things [without weakening].

2 Corinthians 2:5-11 (AMP)
But if someone has caused [all this] sorrow, he has caused it not to me, but in some degree—not to put it too severely—[he has distressed and grieved] all of you. For such a one this punishment by the majority is sufficient, so instead [of further rebuke, now] you should rather [graciously] forgive and comfort and encourage him, to keep him from being overwhelmed by excessive sorrow. Therefore I urge you to reinstate him in your affections and reaffirm your [c]love for him. For this was my purpose in writing, to see if you would stand the test, whether you are obedient and committed to following my instruction in all things. 10 If you forgive anyone anything, I too forgive [that one]; and what I have forgiven, if I have forgiven anything, has been for your sake in the presence of [and with the approval of] Christ, 11 to keep Satan from taking advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his schemes.

Ephesians 1:3-10 (AMP)
Blessed and worthy of praise be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms in Christ, just as [in His love] He chose us in Christ [actually selected us for Himself as His own] before the foundation of the world, so that we would be holy [that is, consecrated, set apart for Him, purpose-driven] and blameless in His sight. In love He predestined and lovingly planned for us to be adopted to Himself as [His own] children through Jesus Christ, in accordance with the kind intention and good pleasure of His will— to the praise of His glorious grace and favor, which He so freely bestowed on us in the Beloved [His Son, Jesus Christ]. In Him we have redemption [that is, our deliverance and salvation] through His blood, [which paid the penalty for our sin and resulted in] the forgiveness and complete pardon of our sin, in accordance with the riches of His grace which He lavished on us. In all wisdom and understanding [with practical insight] He made known to us the mystery of His will according to His good pleasure, which He purposed in Christ, 10 with regard to the fulfillment of the times [that is, the end of history, the climax of the ages]—to bring all things together in Christ, [both] things in the heavens and things on the earth.

Ephesians 4:26-27 (NLT)
26 And “don’t sin by letting anger control you.” Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27 for anger gives a foothold to the devil.

Ephesians 4:31-32 (NKJV)
31 Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. 32 And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.

Colossians 1:13 (NKJV)
He [God] has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, 14 in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.

Colossians 2:13 (AMP)
When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh (worldliness, manner of life), God made you alive together with Christ, having [freely] forgiven us all our sins,

Colossians 3:12-17 (NKJV)
12 Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; 13 bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. 14 But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. 15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. 17 And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

James 1:19-20 (AMP)
19 Understand this, my beloved brothers and sisters. Let everyone be quick to hear [be a careful, thoughtful listener], slow to speak [a speaker of carefully chosen words and], slow to anger [patient, reflective, forgiving]; 20 for the [resentful, deep-seated] anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God [that standard of behavior which He requires from us].

James 5:13-16 (AMP)
13 Is anyone among you suffering? He must pray. Is anyone joyful? He is to sing praises [to God]. 14 Is anyone among you sick? He must call for the elders (spiritual leaders) of the church and they are to pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; 15 and the prayer of faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another [your false steps, your offenses], and pray for one another, that you may be healed and restored.  The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God—it is dynamic and can have tremendous power].

1 John 1:8 (NKJV)
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.

1 John 4:19-21 (AMP)
19 We love, because He first loved us. 20 If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates (works against) his [Christian] brother he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen. 21 And this commandment we have from Him, that the one who loves God should also [unselfishly] love his brother and seek the best for him.

Parting of the Sea/Water Occurs 5 Times in the Bible

We found five different occurrences in the bible in which water was parted or separated by God.

1.  GOD Separates the Water

Genesis 1:6-7 (New Living Translation)
6 Then God said, “Let there be a space between the waters, to separate the waters of the heavens from the waters of the earth.” 7 And that is what happened. God made this space to separate the waters of the earth from the waters of the heavens.

2.  Moses Parts the Water (Red Sea)

Exodus 14:15-22  (New King James Version)
15 And the LORD said to Moses, “Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward. 16 But lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it. And the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea. 17 And I indeed will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they shall follow them. So I will gain honor over Pharaoh and over all his army, his chariots, and his horsemen. 18 Then the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I have gained honor for Myself over Pharaoh, his chariots, and his horsemen.”
19 And the Angel of God, who went before the camp of Israel, moved and went behind them; and the pillar of cloud went from before them and stood behind them. 20 So it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel. Thus it was a cloud and darkness to the one, and it gave light by night to the other, so that the one did not come near the other all that night.
21 Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea into dry land, and the waters were divided.
22 So the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea on the dry ground, and the waters were a wall to them on their right hand and on their left.

Hebrews 11:29 (The Message)
By an act of faith, Israel walked through the Red Sea on dry ground. The Egyptians tried it and drowned.

3.  Joshua & Israel Cross the Jordan

Joshua 3:5-17 through 4:1-18 (NKJV)
5 And Joshua said to the people, “Sanctify yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do wonders among you.” 6 Then Joshua spoke to the priests, saying, “Take up the ark of the covenant and cross over before the people.”  So they took up the ark of the covenant and went before the people.
7 And the LORD said to Joshua, “This day I will begin to exalt you in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that, as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. 8 You shall command the priests who bear the ark of the covenant, saying, ‘When you have come to the edge of the water of the Jordan, you shall stand in the Jordan.’”
9 So Joshua said to the children of Israel, “Come here, and hear the words of the LORD your God.” 10 And Joshua said, “By this you shall know that the living God is among you, and that He will without fail drive out from before you the Canaanites and the Hittites and the Hivites and the Perizzites and the Girgashites and the Amorites and the Jebusites: 11 Behold, the ark of the covenant of the Lord of all the earth is crossing over before you into the Jordan. 12 Now therefore, take for yourselves twelve men from the tribes of Israel, one man from every tribe. 13 And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests who bear the ark of the LORD, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of the Jordan, that the waters of the Jordan shall be cut off, the waters that come down from upstream, and they shall stand as a heap.”
14 So it was, when the people set out from their camp to cross over the Jordan, with the priests bearing the ark of the covenant before the people, 15 and as those who bore the ark came to the Jordan, and the feet of the priests who bore the ark dipped in the edge of the water (for the Jordan overflows all its banks during the whole time of harvest), 16 that the waters which came down from upstream stood still, and rose in a heap very far away at Adam, the city that is beside Zaretan. So the waters that went down into the Sea of the Arabah, the Salt Sea, failed, and were cut off; and the people crossed over opposite Jericho. 17 Then the priests who bore the ark of the covenant of the LORD stood firm on dry ground in the midst of the Jordan; and all Israel crossed over on dry ground, until all the people had crossed completely over the Jordan.

Joshua 4:1-18
1 And it came to pass, when all the people had completely crossed over the Jordan, that the LORD spoke to Joshua, saying: 2 “Take for yourselves twelve men from the people, one man from every tribe, 3 and command them, saying, ‘Take for yourselves twelve stones from here, out of the midst of the Jordan, from the place where the priests’ feet stood firm. You shall carry them over with you and leave them in the lodging place where you lodge tonight.’”
4 Then Joshua called the twelve men whom he had appointed from the children of Israel, one man from every tribe; 5 and Joshua said to them: “Cross over before the ark of the LORD your God into the midst of the Jordan, and each one of you take up a stone on his shoulder, according to the number of the tribes of the children of Israel, 6 that this may be a sign among you when your children ask in time to come, saying, ‘What do these stones mean to you?’ 7 Then you shall answer them that the waters of the Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the LORD; when it crossed over the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. And these stones shall be for a memorial to the children of Israel forever.”
8 And the children of Israel did so, just as Joshua commanded, and took up twelve stones from the midst of the Jordan, as the LORD had spoken to Joshua, according to the number of the tribes of the children of Israel, and carried them over with them to the place where they lodged, and laid them down there. 9 Then Joshua set up twelve stones in the midst of the Jordan, in the place where the feet of the priests who bore the ark of the covenant stood; and they are there to this day.
10 So the priests who bore the ark stood in the midst of the Jordan until everything was finished that the LORD had commanded Joshua to speak to the people, according to all that Moses had commanded Joshua; and the people hurried and crossed over. 11 Then it came to pass, when all the people had completely crossed over, that the ark of the LORD and the priests crossed over in the presence of the people. 12 And the men of Reuben, the men of Gad, and half the tribe of Manasseh crossed over armed before the children of Israel, as Moses had spoken to them. 13 About forty thousand prepared for war crossed over before the LORD for battle, to the plains of Jericho. 14 On that day the LORD exalted Joshua in the sight of all Israel; and they feared him, as they had feared Moses, all the days of his life.
15 Then the LORD spoke to Joshua, saying, 16 “Command the priests who bear the ark of the Testimony to come up from the Jordan.” 17 Joshua therefore commanded the priests, saying, “Come up from the Jordan.” 18 And it came to pass, when the priests who bore the ark of the covenant of the LORD had come from the midst of the Jordan, and the soles of the priests’ feet touched the dry land, that the waters of the Jordan returned to their place and overflowed all its banks as before.

4.  Elijah Parts the Water

2 Kings 2:5-9 (NKJV)
5 Now the sons of the prophets who were at Jericho came to Elisha and said to him, “Do you know that the LORD will take away your master from over you today?”
So he answered, “Yes, I know; keep silent!”
6 Then Elijah said to him, “Stay here, please, for the LORD has sent me on to the Jordan.”
But he said, “As the LORD lives, and as your soul lives, I will not leave you!” So the two of them went on. 7 And fifty men of the sons of the prophets went and stood facing them at a distance, while the two of them stood by the Jordan. 8 Now Elijah took his mantle, rolled it up, and struck the water; and it was divided this way and that, so that the two of them crossed over on dry ground.
9 And so it was, when they had crossed over, that Elijah said to Elisha, “Ask! What may I do for you, before I am taken away from you?”
Elisha said, “Please let a double portion of your spirit be upon me.”

5.  Elisha Parts the Water

2 Kings 2:12-15 (NKJV)
12 And Elisha saw it, and he cried out, “My father, my father, the chariot of Israel and its horsemen!” So he saw him no more. And he took hold of his own clothes and tore them into two pieces. 13 He also took up the mantle of Elijah that had fallen from him, and went back and stood by the bank of the Jordan. 14 Then he took the mantle of Elijah that had fallen from him, and struck the water, and said, “Where is the LORD God of Elijah?” And when he also had struck the water, it was divided this way and that; and Elisha crossed over.
15 Now when the sons of the prophets who were from Jericho saw him, they said, “The spirit of Elijah rests on Elisha.” And they came to meet him, and bowed to the ground before him.

God Told Me to Deem Myself Worthy of Success and Prosperity

I was reading the Bible and took a break to go into the kitchen to get some tea.  While in the kitchen, I heard the still, small voice of God say to me, “I give you richly all things to enjoy”.  I then heard, “On earth as it is in heaven”.  I was prompted to look up the verses!  The first verse referenced by the Lord was 1 Timothy 6:17:

“Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.”

The second verse was from Matthew 6:10.  Here’s Matthew 6:8-10:
[Jesus Speaking] 8 Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. In this manner, therefore, pray:
Our Father in heaven,

Hallowed be Your name.
10 Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.”

God put it the two verses together and said, “I give you richly all things to enjoy, on earth as it is in heaven.  The reason you don’t have the things I want to give you is that you think you don’t deserve them.”

Ouch.  I am blocking my own blessing by how I think and what I believe in my heart.

So, let’s get to work changing my heart!  I am meditating on 1 Timothy 6:17 by saying, “God is giving me richly all things to enjoy.  I am blessed to be a blessing to others.”

John 10:10 says, “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”  The Greek word “zoe” for “life” means the same life that is resident in God Himself.  So when the Bible says that we are to have life (zoe) more abundantly, it is literally saying that God wants to manifest heaven on the earth!  We don’t have to wait.  We can experience God’s favor and abundance while we are on the earth.  We can be blessed to be a blessing!

And, in 2 Corinthians 9:8, it says, “And God is able to make all grace [every favor and earthly blessing] come in abundance to you, so that you may always [under all circumstances, regardless of the need] have complete sufficiency in everything [being completely self-sufficient in Him], and have an abundance for every good work and act of charity.”  In other words, God wants us to have more than enough!

Think about this.  John 14:1-2 says, “ “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.”  Jesus is preparing a mansion for me in heaven!  So, I’m looking forward to my nice home here on earth.  After all, God wants to bless me here “on earth as it is in heaven”!

The word “deem” is a verb that means “to view as” or “judge”.  Deem comes from the Old English word, deman — meaning “act as a judge.” If you deem something, you essentially become the judge of whether it has a characteristic in your life.  Therefore, deem means to keep in mind, hold, view as, assert, affirm, consider, reckon, regard or see something.

My new thought is that I judge myself – I consider myself – I regard myself as being prosperous so I can be blessed to be a blessing.  I assert that God is giving me richly all things to enjoy.  And, more importantly, I give Him all the credit and all the glory.  I will trust in God – not in the money.

Here’s 1 Timothy 6:17 from various different versions of the Bible:

AMP (Amplified)
As for the rich in this present world, instruct them not to be conceited and arrogant, nor to set their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly and ceaselessly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.

CEV (Contemporary English Version)
Warn the rich people of this world not to be proud or to trust in wealth that is easily lost. Tell them to have faith in God, who is rich and blesses us with everything we need to enjoy life.

ERV (Easy-To-Read Version)
Give this command to those who are rich with the things of this world. Tell them not to be proud. Tell them to hope in God, not their money. Money cannot be trusted, but God takes care of us richly. He gives us everything to enjoy.

EXB (Expanded Bible)
Command those who are rich ·with things of this world [in the present age] not to be proud [arrogant; haughty]. Tell them to hope in God, not in their uncertain riches. God richly gives us everything to enjoy.

GW (God’s Word Translation)
Tell those who have the riches of this world not to be arrogant and not to place their confidence in anything as uncertain as riches. Instead, they should place their confidence in God who richly provides us with everything to enjoy.

GNT (Good News Translation)
Command those who are rich in the things of this life not to be proud, but to place their hope, not in such an uncertain thing as riches, but in God, who generously gives us everything for our enjoyment.

NASB (New American Standard Bible)
Instruct those who are rich in this present world not to be conceited or to fix their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly supplies us with all things to enjoy.

NCV (New Century Version)
Command those who are rich with things of this world not to be proud. Tell them to hope in God, not in their uncertain riches. God richly gives us everything to enjoy.

NET (New English Translation)
Command those who are rich in this world’s goods not to be haughty or to set their hope on riches, which are uncertain, but on God who richly provides us with all things for our enjoyment.

NIV (New International Version)
Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.

NLV (New Life Version)
Tell those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money. Money cannot be trusted. They should put their trust in God. He gives us all we need for our happiness.

NLT (New Living Translation)
Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which is so unreliable. Their trust should be in God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment.

God can and will supply not only our needs, but our desires, if we let Him!  Remember to give Him all the glory!

I’m reminded of Ephesians 3:20 (AMP), which says, “Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us“.  God works within us.

Here’s a great verse in 2 Corinthians 9:8 (NLT), which says, “And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.

Here’s another great passage in 2 Corinthians 9:11-15 (NCV):
11 He [God] will make you rich in every way so that you can always give freely. And your giving through us will cause many to give thanks to God. 12 This service you do not only helps the needs of God’s people, it also brings many more thanks to God. 13 It is a proof of your faith. Many people will praise God because you obey the Good News of Christ—the gospel you say you believe—and because you freely share with them and with all others. 14 And when they pray, they will wish they could be with you because of the great grace that God has given you. 15 Thanks be to God for his gift that is too wonderful for words.”

Here’s my prayer – That God would work within me to change my heart and create a vision of His purpose and will for my life.  And, my prayer is for you as well.  I pray that God would change your heart to be able to not only see a vision and a purpose for your life, but a realization that He is able to do abundantly more than all you can ask or imagine!

Guard Your Mouth to Keep Yourself Safe

Right Thinking, Right Words, Blessed Life – Daily Devotional (Day 16)

Proverbs 21:23 (AMP), “He who guards his mouth and his tongue guards himself from troubles.”
Proverbs 21:23 (The Message), “Watch your words and hold your tongue; you’ll save yourself a lot of grief.”
Proverbs 21:23 (KJV), “Whoever guards his mouth and tongue keeps his soul from troubles.”

The Hebrew word for “guards” means to keep, to keep watch, to have charge of, to observe, and give heed. It also means to keep (within bounds) or restrain, as well as to preserve and protect.

This word is also used in Genesis 25:5 and in Psalm 37:34.

Genesis 25:2-5:
Then the Lord appeared to him [Isaac] and said: “Do not go down to Egypt; live in the land of which I shall tell you. Dwell in this land, and I will be with you and bless you; for to you and your descendants I give all these lands, and I will perform the oath which I swore to Abraham your father. And I will make your descendants multiply as the stars of heaven; I will give to your descendants all these lands; and in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed; because Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws.”

Psalm 37:34 (NKJV), “Psalm 37:34 (NKJV), “Wait on the Lord, and keep His way, and He shall exalt you to inherit the land”

These verses are talking about keeping the way of the Lord in your life. You can keep the way of the Lord by reading and/or listening to His Word, and listening to the Holy Spirit direct your life. You can also talk to Him anywhere and anytime. This means that there is a choice. You make the choice to spend time with Him.

Likewise, you have a choice as to what you say. Watching what you say is important. You’ll get what you confess. Make a choice to proclaim God’s word. Remember that if you are speaking negative words, even if you think it’s telling the truth, the negative comes to pass. God told me that my words (our words) are like seeds. You speak things into existence. Those seeds become trees, and those trees will bear fruit. The question is are you going to see good fruit or bad fruit?

Jesus said in Mark 11:22-24 (ESV), “And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”   (Also see Matthew 21:21)

Here’s the key. Jesus’ explanation is not just about prayer. The prayer part is after the word “therefore”. Jesus said in the first sentence that if you say something, and you believe it, it will be done.

Here’s the key: if you say something, and you believe it, it will be done.

What do you have in your life that you don’t want – but you’ve confessed it into existence?

Here’s the question – What do you need to say and believe differently in order for your life to change for the better?

SCRIPTURE MEDITATION:
Matthew 21:18-21

JOURNAL:
Find scriptures that apply to your life and meditate on them. Write down the verses on 3×5 cards and keep them with you. Remind yourself of these versus by thinking about them and speaking them out loud. Start speaking what God’s Word says about your situation.

Write down the verses and phrases that line up with God’s Word that you will declare today that will help you persuade your heart that God’s promises are true for you today.

THANKSGIVING:
Remember to thank God and honor Him with your words.  You may want to begin your praise to God with a verse from the Bible or a song you’ve heard.

PRAYER: Lord, I pray that you would show me what I am saying that has caused negative things in my life, and to correct me in my words. I pray for a strong relationship with You.

They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others. 19 By doing this they will be storing up their treasure as a good foundation for the future so that they may experience true life.
