Closer than close 11/29/16

Revisited messages from Monday, November 21, 2011 at 11:12am

Goood Morninnnnng,

Who can’t relate to wanting to find a perfect sentiment to share with the one that you love, that perfect gift or just always remembering to do that special thing which you know deep down translates to them as, Wow!

As Christians, we grow up into the knowledge that God really does know us inside and out, after all, He did create us and He is intimately attuned to our needs, desires, quirks and abilities.

In some cases, we advance to a position in our walk with Him to recognize we need to seek to Know Him better, to know Him more, just as intimately. It’s in the still moments, when peace is the buffer, drowning out the world. It’s in the quiet confirmations that are fresh to your current events. The solitude of soul-itude; its the attitude of finding yourself by loosing yourself deep in the arms of the Lord.

A loved one only wants to hear, feel and know that they are valued and appreciated. In our relationship with God, He created us to discover Him, to seek Him, to Find Him, To know Him and to Love Him. We need to value Him, to appreciate Him and to Go to Him.

Like the child that maybe wandered off from Mommy or Daddy, it has its moments rooted in discomfort…the second we rediscover Daddy God is within earshot, our comfort returns and joy ensues. It is truly within the embrace of that Love, that we regain a respect for how and what is pleasing to the Lord.

Heavenly Father, help us to keep a better balance in our lives, to stay thirsty and to remain hydrated in the well spring of your Love. Let us praise you when we wake, let us thank you for every blessing, prayers answered, both small and great. Let us endeavor to learn more of You, to discover new depths of your goodness and mercy. Lord, we ask for supernatural encounters so deep in our being, where You are there and nothing else exists. To get caught up in Your presence and to forever be changed. Let the renewing and washing of our minds be our gifts of contact. Thank you Lord, for the many who will experience this in Your Mighty and Precious name, Yehushua, Our Lord, Jesus Christ AMEN!

Psalm 139
For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.
1 O LORD, You have searched me and known me.
2 You know my sitting down and my rising up;
You understand my thought afar off.
3 You comprehend my path and my lying down,
And are acquainted with all my ways.
4 For there is not a word on my tongue,
But behold, O LORD, You know it altogether.
5 You have hedged me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
It is high, I cannot attain it.

For those who Love and serve Him 11/21/16

I am reminded of the many trials and challenges that we all face. Those of us who love the Lord, have certainly had to come to terms with losses, disappointments, and hurts. There are times when we just can’t seem to rectify in our minds why things had to happen the way that they did, or question “How can this be God’s will?”

Sometimes, God will reveal to us, much later on (if this hadn’t happened then this other thing would never have transpired). It is moments like those that we get a glimpse of how God will inject a blessing on the heals of hard happenstance, sometimes it’s immediate and other times we don’t realize the connection until much later. Ultimately, He is good and He cares about what happens to us. The evil things that come at us are not from Him, nor do they escape His awareness. WE are constantly being guided, protected, watched over, shielded. There is a sovereign law, essential to all human life given and maintained by our creator that forbids certain interferences. It is a very intricate and just process that dictates why some things can be miraculously resolved and others can’t.

We have to just know and trust through His word that He is for us and not against us. That He will deliver beauty for ashes and cause all things to work together for good.

The Year of the Lord’s Favor

Isaiah 61

61 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
    because the Lord has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
    to proclaim freedom for the captives
    and release from darkness for the prisoners,[a]
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor
    and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
    and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
    instead of ashes,
the oil of joy
    instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
    instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
    a planting of the Lord
    for the display of his splendor.

Romans 8:28

28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Isaiah 55:9

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

WE are easier to manage when we trust Him like a child 11/15/16



It’s usually not until a child is much older, until they have been disappointed, let down or neglected that they become distrustful of adults. It seems almost intrinsic to little ones to trust Mom and Dad. All of their basic needs are met and the comfort of that loving devotion creates a blanket of surrender that they easily give over to.

2 Timothy 1:7

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

Trust and freedom go hand in hand, there is no room for fear.

Psalm 56:11

“In God I have put my trust, I shall not be afraid . . . “

1 John 4:18

“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.”

Romans 8:15

“For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.”

Hebrews 2:15

“And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.”

Proverbs 3:5

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding“


We are at place in time where it is critical to trust the Lord, as little children. Things can get complicated and confounded quickly. Little children aren’t expected to understand the nuances of evil wickedness and manipulations that surely accompany that agenda. God wants us in place of total reliance upon Him, so that He can usher us here and there, just as a non-suspecting child would follow the simple instructions of a parent. God might need to lead you out of danger unbeknownst to you, this requires obedience to His promptings.

How can you become more attuned to His promptings? You can develop a baseline with the Lord. He is not to0 High and Mighty to not accommodate your request for clearer instruction. You can create a dialogue of signals and simple occurrences that will be helpful in discerning what way to go and what actions to take. Write them down, so you don’t forget.  Pray to God and ask Him to please begin to communicate with you in some simple but precise ways.


Yes = (assign whatever signal or occurrence you feel will be undeniable yet highly probable of happening)  ex. a red light turning green, a person nodding their head, a horn beep, a sneeze,

No = (get creative, try to find examples that could occur no matter where you are or who you are with.) ex: the cashier asking for coupons, a big red circle on a sign, an abrupt noise over the phone

Leave now = (hearing the word “bye”, noticing a door left ajar, a flickering light, a high pitched ring in your ear)

Stay put = (cramp in your foot, a piece of paper on the floor,  something obstructing the doorway)

Go read the Bible = ( noticing a stack of books, seeing a bookmark, a single apple sitting on a ledge, a child’s book, a book symbol on a t-shirt)

Take no action = ( a large red x, a circle with a line through it, a cork, a bird just gliding through the air – not struggling or flying )

Wait for more info = ( noticing a question mark alone or oversized, a half-completed sentence, a letter torn in half – missing part, a puzzle piece)


If we could just learn to recognize when He is speaking with us. We actually can, He wants us to, and through His word, we will develop an even keener sense of awareness. This will lead us into blessings faster and away from disasters.

I can only emphasize that I had this very experience myself, when having to travel recently. I calmed my nerves about something that was projected onto me by reminding myself that God and the Holy spirit will find a way to redirect me, slow me down or delay me (somehow, someway) away from any grave danger. Well, that is exactly what happened. I was involved in an incident and kept waiting for close to two hours. I know that the hand of God was upon the situation because of the thoughts I had prior and the trust I assigned to my savior prior to.

Have a blessed week and enjoy the peace of mind in knowing God can and will communicate to you, with you and through ordinary events.
