Meekness is like the Gentle Giant 12-29-14

Matthew 5:5

“Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.”

Let's take a look at the word meek. The definition that best describes this characteristic is the word "allowing" or "non-resistant" this is the result of GREAT confidence, courage and peacefulness, which is far from being weak! Meekness is like the Gentle Giant!

adjective: meek; comparative adjective: meeker; superlative adjective: meekest
quiet, gentle, and easily imposed on; submissive.
"I used to call her Miss Mouse because she was so meek and mild"
synonyms:submissive, yielding, obedient, compliant, tame, biddable, tractable, acquiescent, humble, deferential, timid, unprotesting, unresisting,

 A proper understanding and alignment with being amenable to God's word, the rules of this universe and the vast amount of well being which is available to us, will serve you well on the path of meekness!

The best way to prepare yourself and learn how to be this way is to study the function of a compass. That little needle that seems to be floating, yet it responds immediately, effortlessly, to which ever direction you are turned. When you are in the correct direction, your needle lines up with the desired point. When you find yourself pointed toward the opposing, it's just an indicator for you to adjust your direction, in attitude which will in also adjust you in spiritual altitude as well.

Wherever you are currently, is just an outcome of all the previous steps. Except, for most people, its the result of lots of directional changes without the benefit of the compass and without a proper understanding of your relationship to it.

This compass is the Holy Spirit! It let's you know when you are lined up with what is best for you. It's calibrated with advice scribed out of God's Holy word. When you are not lined up, you find confusion, dis-ease, worry, anxiety, distress. I am reminded of a time, when the Holy Spirit showed me something, in the process of trying to remove a knot from a necklace. The more I tugged and yanked, the worse it got, the resistance I had to the knot made it worse. It wasn't until I tried to remove the tension from the knot, which gave the material some wiggle room, so that I could pull the tail and make enough room to bring the rest of the chain through that loop effectively freeing the chain from its constriction. Our problems, often are solved this same way!

Learning to comply with the Holy Spirit is a skill, that can only be taught through faith and trust. When we digest (read & learn) Gods word, put it into action and rest in His promises, we find that we have a steadfast adviser, a constant companion, an all knowing seer, navigating for us before we ever even get to the fork in the road! Aligning with your compass is becoming non resistant to Gods word, going in the direction of His advice, allowing the Spirit and God's will to have His way.

Heavenly Father, I pray that your children would come to know You as the able and true confidant that You are! That ears would begin to hear only Your words of direction, that paths would light up for Your children, illuminating for us which is the best and most desirable path to take. Lord, I pray that Your courage and strength would permeate us, bolstering us toward our inevitable best purpose. Thank you Lord, that You see and know exactly the best dose for each of us in accord with our spiritual growth, making us more effective and bringing us into better communion with You! In Jesus Mighty name, we praise and thank You!

John 16:13
 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

Acts 11:11-14
11 “Right then three men who had been sent to me from Caesarea stopped at the house where I was staying. 12 The Spirit told me to have no hesitation about going with them. These six brothers also went with me, and we entered the man’s house. 13 He told us how he had seen an angel appear in his house and say, ‘Send to Joppa for Simon who is called Peter. 14 He will bring you a message through which you and all your household will be saved.’

Romans 8:14
14 For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.

Luke 12:12
12 for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say.”

Ephesians 1:13-14 “In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession.”

Romans 8:26-27: “The Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered

Ezekiel 36:27 “I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them.”

Zechariah 4: 6 "Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts.”

Jesus, the Gift that keeps on giving 12-22-14

John 15:12-14

12 “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command you.”



You see, one could read this and walk away perceiving that we are to Love, even to the point of ultimate sacrifice. Jesus wants to be our friend, He wants us to obey him, but he also wants us to Lay Down Our Lives for Him, as He laid down His for us.

When He says, "that someone lay down His life for his friends" yes, Jesus physically laid down His life for us, His friends. That we are His friends, if we do what He commands. To be an effective friend we have to love in this same manner. The laying down of our life for Him, consists in dying to ourselves, our worldly inclinations. It consists in the willingness to loose the major part of our will for His.

Our sacrifice (whatever it is, small or large) is so insignificant in comparison to His. So less painful, embarrassing, humiliating! Stop to think of what He truly gave up and endured for this privilege, He gave to us the privilege of being reconciled to Him and ultimately. reconciled with the Father!

You received the best GIFT, 2000+ years ago, from a friend who knew you before you did! 

Merry Christmas and may God Richly Bless you! Make sure to share the LOVE in your heart with everyone you see!

Clarity and poise 12-15-14

In order to be understood and to understand, we must strive for clarity!

We can not get the wrong notion that all we need do is name it to claim it, and think positive thoughts and everything will float into our hands. Nay, but rather, we must align ourselves with the thoughts, ideals, beliefs and readiness, should those things come into our experience, so that they are not missed, overlooked, or taken for granted!

Several times this week, the concept of SPEAKING distinctly, correctly, succinctly and in alignment with that which is right, good and true has been the topic of conversation and passing commentary. I am revisiting something that I have covered before, in my going on 5 years now, Monday Morning Message. It's just as relevant now as it was when God first impressed upon me to share it.

The Lord has led me to a greater understanding; deliverance for so many is at hand! A friend of a friend bought a book & then shared some of it's nuggets; this book is pressed down~ shaken together, a gift filled with God's word. It has unlocked some powerful truths. It has helped draw forward empowerment,  it is in full alignment. I have gleaned in the fields of the Lord and the harvest is at hand! Bring your hunger, bring your thirst and have your fill!

Love & faith are only experienced, only effective in ACTION...(like the word ATTRACTION) the word action is always present! It is God's Love in action (through Christ's sacrifice) that we have salvation &  it is through Faith (in action) confessing Jesus Christ as the Triune & risen Messiah that we are able to receive His inheritance eternally. Rom 10:9-10 This book says that what we confess we also posses! Is the confession of your lips eradicating your blessings? Are your words opposing God's? Do not believe or buy into the ugly lie that may be staring you in the face..poverty, oppression, sickness or depression!

Hosea 4: 6 (KJV) My people perish from a lack of knowledge. 
He wants us educated, enlightened &  informed of the promises, blessings, gifts, abilities, provisions, mercies & miracles. Explicitly, His words are endorsed and backed... from before the foundations of this world and far beyond into all of eternity!

So, yes this book I found seems to be worthy of reading but the message that it offers is readily attainable, right now, all you need do is crack open your Bible and begin to recognize every promise of God, every single word of His prophecy and promise to us is a SURE thing!

The other book I have referenced is called: "The Power Of Your Words" by Don Gossett and E.W. Kenyon. It is filled with references to scripture and I have found it to be a great and helpful companion on the subject of faith, belief, and the power of our speech. I had to special order mine through Barnes & Noble but have found it might be easier to get it through Amazon direct...Here is a handy link for ordering it, the page in it takes you to at Amazon has the book available in English and Spanish :>>>

Here are some nuggets to devour....(let the confession of your mouth be aligned with the confession that the word of God instructs us in)

    I confess Romans 10:13... I possess an all knowing for sure salvation For I have called upon the name of the Lord!
    I confess Psalm 121:7... I possess preservation from All Evil all the time, asleep or awake!
    I confess Matthew 5:8... I possess the assurance of seeing God through the blood of Jesus Christ
    I confess Psalm 29:11... I possess PEACE and an abundance of strength
    I confess Psalm 68:19... I possess a life loaded with God's daily blessings and benefits
    I confess John 8:12... I possess a light from the Lord above to guide my every step on this life's journey
    I confess 2 Corinthians 9:8... I posses all grace; abounding Grace, saving grace, healing grace, baptizing grace, all sufficient.
    I confess Luke 1:37 ...I possess limitless possibilities in Christ.
    I confess Acts 2:17... I possess the spirit of God poured out upon me & all that I come in contact with.
    I confess Psalm 103:12... I possess ultimate pardon for my sins and God remembers them no more!

The reaSON, the seaSON, the perSON! 12-8-14

A Miracle unnoticed, or unrecognized is no less impressive than one celebrated!

This brings us to the topic of Today's message...."CELEBRATE" Is the miracle in the celebration or the celebration in the miracle? Its both!

Many people seem to have this cloud looming over, during the Holidays, melancholy, depression, lack of excitement! All for many reasons, who lost a child, who lost a parent, who is sick, who lost their job, and well frankly, the list is as wide and varied as life is.

I am no different than anyone else, having had my share of life events and in times past, yes Its effected my joy because I allowed it BUT that is no longer. One thing my dearly departed parents would cringe at, is the knowledge that all they did to make the holidays special for myself and my siblings would be hampered, hindered or halted by their absence. Even when they were alive, what fun would it have been on Christmas morning for all of us kids to wake up and find two people grumbling & complaining about all the hardships they faced, decorating, shopping, wrapping and all the 'fixins' that went into making it what it was?! No, they never said a word! The main message we received out of all of it was "enjoy"! Their main intention was to cause us to have JOY and then enjoy having us experience that joy!

The Lord showed me something so interesting. This is exactly how it is for us, here and now, right where we are. He wants us to recognize and appreciate the things that are worth focusing on. There are miracles every day;  eyesight, hearing, sunrises, sunsets, conception, birth. In these miracles I have listed, we also have a picture of the GREATEST MIRACLE for which we could ever celebrate. To see Salvation, to hear the Good News, The rising of the Son- Jesus Christ, whom set the the Stars and the planets in their orbit, the conception of God as Man in the womb or Mary and His humble birth into the very fabric of humanity which He himself wove and spun!

This is the REAL celebration, this is the real JOY! The miracle is Christ and the celebration needs to go on. In little ways, in big ways, in the every day! Do not let the enemy rob you of this joy! Recognize that life is for the living. Even if its only the memories of Christmas past that gentle pluck at your heart, embrace them. Find something worth celebrating and do it to the very best of your ability!

The best gift we can give the LORD, is to recognize His gift to us, to do our best to LOVE others and to help lighten their load, gifts of kindness mean more than gold. Gifts of friendship, time, laughter, harmony, these are the gifts that make the biggest impact! I hope you get and give gifts such as these, that is my wish!

Christmas isn't in the day, it's in the hearts and minds of those who celebrate Gods goodness. It's early enough still,  you can celebrate all the miraculous & wondrous things all around you. Start today!

Psalm 118:24

This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. 

Psalm 145:7

They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness.

“Be full of joy in the Lord always. I will say again, be full of joy. Let everyone see that you are gentle and kind. The Lord is coming soon” Philippians 4:4-5

“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field” – Matthew 13:44

To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy— to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen – Jude 1:2-5

How can we thank God enough for you in return for all the joy we have in the presence of our God because of you? – 1 Thessalonians 3:9

For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock. Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the Lord. Hear my voice when I call, Lord; be merciful to me and answer me. – Psalm 27:5-7

Hate evil, you lovers of the Eternal. He protects the souls of those who follow Him; He rescues them from the devices of the wicked. Light is sown in the just; as it grows, it brings joy to the pure of heart. Celebrate the Eternal God, all you who are faithful; offer thanks to His holy name. – Psalm 97:10-12

“Blessed are you when people hate you, when they exclude you and insult you and reject your name as evil, because of the Son of Man. Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in heaven. For that is how their ancestors treated the prophets.” – Luke 6:22-23

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.” – James 1:2-3

Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.” The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. – Psalm 126:2-3 

Many, Lord, are asking, “Who will bring us prosperity?” Let the light of your face shine on us. Fill my heart with joy when their grain and new wine abound. In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety. - Psalm 4:6-8
And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me; Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord. – Psalm 27:6
Clap your hands, all you nations; shout to God with cries of joy. For the Lord Most High is awesome, the great King over all the earth. He subdued nations under us, peoples under our feet. – Psalm 47:1-3
My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to you— I whom you have delivered. – Psalm 71:23

Reserve your blessings by serving others 12/1/14

We all know we should give more, who hasn't had an inspiration to do this or that, here or there, especially at the holidays! The real spark is when you are so inspired and just give into it, with no hesitations! No matter where you are on the abundance scale, there is always something you can do, give or offer. Sometimes, you just have to be creative. After all, its the thought that counts, the intent and the follow through!

There are certain laws, which God orchestrated for our experiences here, such as gravity, attraction and gratitude. Gravity keeps you from floating off into space, a good thing in my opinion, but it can certainly be harmful, if not understood or misused; I remember my brother learning about it, when he received a gift for Christmas one year called 'Kirbangers' (shortly there after they were pulled from the market) LOL

If you are a blessing to others, YOU will also, likewise, be blessed! Those blessings are innumerable, because like a pebble thrown into a brook, the ripples just spread! Far and wide, it creates an effect and sets in motion a vibration of openness, thankfulness and gratitude!

If you're needing some inspiration or suggestions, allow me...

1. Food for the Poor....they are reputable and they do marvelous things for the poorest of the poor.

2. an orphanage in the Phillipines that cares for 40+ children, housing, feeding, clothing and education them, with LOVE!

3. Send a simple card, a thank you, some newspaper clippings, some comics, a crossword puzzle, anything. Our Heroes deserve to know they are appreciated!

The main point here is that it doesn't have to be some over the top gesture, and you would be surprised what you can do or come up with when you are inspired enough and open to giving!

The REAL gift is in the GIVING. Its my prayer that you will discover this JOY for yourself!


Have a BLESSED week!

Deuteronomy 15:10

Give generously to him and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to.

Deuteronomy 16:17

Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD your God which He has given you.

1 Chronicles 29:9

Then the people rejoiced because they had offered so willingly, for they made their offering to the Lord with a whole heart, and King David also rejoiced greatly.

Proverbs 3:27

Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it.

Proverbs 11:24-25

There is one who scatters, and yet increases all the more, and there is one who withholds what is justly due, and yet it results only in want. The generous man will be prosperous, and he who waters will himself be watered.

Proverbs 21:26

…the righteous gives and does not hold back.

Proverbs 22:9

He who is generous will be blessed, for he gives some of his food to the poor.

“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test 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 a blessing until it overflows.

Matthew 6:3-4

But when you give to the poor, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving will be in secret; and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.

Mark 12:41-44

And He sat down opposite the treasury, and began observing how the people were putting money into the treasury; and many rich people were putting in large sums. A poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which amount to a cent. Calling His disciples to Him, He said to them, “Truly I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the contributors to the treasury; for they all put in out of their surplus, but she, out of her poverty, put in all she owned, all she had to live on.”

Luke 3:11

And he would answer and say to them, “The man who has two tunics is to share with him who has none; and he who has food is to do likewise.”

Luke 6:30

Give to everyone who asks of you, and whoever takes away what is yours, do not demand it back.

Luke 6:38

Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.

John 3:16

For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him wouldn’t perish, but would have eternal life.

Acts 20:35

In everything I showed you that by working hard in this manner you must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He Himself said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.

Romans 12:8

…Or he who exhorts, in his exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.

2 Corinthians 9:6-8

Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed.

2 Corinthians 9:10

Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness;

Philippians 4:15-17

And you yourselves also know, Philippians, that at the first preaching of the gospel, after I departed from Macedonia, no church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving but you alone; for even in Thessalonica you send a gift more than once for my needs. Not that I seek the gift itself, but I seek for the profit which increases to your account.

James 2:15-16

If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,” and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that?
