MOVE BEFORE THE STORM

MOVE BEFORE THE STROM         MOVE BEFORE THE STORM

 

Let me start off by saying, “We all have storms in our lives and we always will”. How you handle your storms is what counts.

Do you listen to the Holy Spirit when He tells you how to handle your storms or do you rely on your own understanding?

Did you know that there are some storms you do not have to go through (if you can hear the Spirit talking to you)?  The Holy Spirit tells you when to move, possibly before some storms ever hit.

This is the reason it is so very important to be able to hear from God in your life, to walk in His Divine Will for your life, so that you may avoid some storms in life.

I know that I hear from the Holy Spirit all the time. I‘ve always heard the spirit’s voice. I did not know what I was hearing earlier in my life and where it was coming from. Sometimes I listened and sometimes I did not listen to that voice which came from so deep inside of me.

When I did not listen, I could look back at that those times and say, “I knew I shouldn’t have said those things to that person,” or “I shouldn’t have gone to that particular place”. I moved to fast on an issue and it didn’t work out like I’d hoped.  Sometimes I look back and say, “I should have spoken up more about a topic or a thought.” There were times when I should have just acted on the message given to me by the Holy Spirit.

The times I listened to that voice and I put action (faith) to what the voice was telling me to do, it turned out to be just what someone needed to hear at that time.

One time in the past, I was talking to God about a situation I was in and asking how to handle it. God had told me what to do but that was too hard for me to do, so I tried to find another way but asking God all the while about what should I do.

I went to church one Sunday and God had the Pastor say just what I needed to hear. However, it was still too hard to do.

Then God used this person to come right up to me and say I hear God telling me to tell you to move before the storm.  She said I do not know what that means.  She went on to say that, she was putting together a list of authors to write short stories, so it could be that He wanted me to writer. So I said OK and went on doing whatever.  I then wrote topics on what I wanted to write about.

About one month later the storm hit and my life and the people around me lives were turned upside down (with nowhere to go but to God).

I ran to God asking why! Why! Moreover, what should I do about it?   He told me I tried to tell you over and over what to do, but you did not listen.

He later said, “You will be alright and everyone around you will be alright, but this had to happen for you to understand that you are mine and when I speak to you, you must hear my voice, listen and act”.

God exclaimed, “I am answering your prayers on what to do about the children in your house”.

Now that the storm is over [for we do not stay in storms of life, as believers we pass through storms] I look back and say that it was the best thing that could have happened. Finally, as I look back into the storm I can see where God was with us even in my disobedience.

The storm was not about me, it was for my son to understand what God will do for him if he just believes.

God bless you

KNOW WHO YOU ARE IN CHRIST

KNOW WHO ARE IN CHRIST FEB. 2013

KNOW WHO YOU ARE IN CHRIST

If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; be hold, all things have become new.

For we are God’s masterpiece, He has created us anew in Christ Jesus so that we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.

For once we were dead, doomed forever because of our many sins.  We used to live just like the rest of the world, full of sin. We let satan take control of us, the mighty prince of the power of the air. He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who live by the flesh.  All of us used to live this way, following the passions and desires of our evil nature.  We were born with an evil nature.

However, as a believer you and I are no longer caught in satan’s bondage. We were set free by Jesus Christ when we asked Him to come and live within us.  By Jesus living in us, we have the power to cast down strongholds over our lives, cast out demons, to love our brother as we do ourselves. We having self-control, having peace in our lives only when you understand that we are in Christ and He is in us.

He Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree (cross); that we having died to sin might live for righteousness – by His stripes we were healed.  For we were like sheep going astray, but having now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of our sins, He has set us free.

The Holy Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and by children, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ Jesus.  We have the right to call God our Father.

Like in the spirit, so is it in the natural. All that our Father gave to Jesus, He gives to us (John 14:12).

Take that power and use it in name of Jesus Christ.

I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me; and the life, which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loves me and gave Himself for me. “I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain” (Galatians 2:20-21).

God Bless you

THE SQUIRREL

THE SQUIRREL
God spoke to me and said, “Look at how the mother squirrel is teaching her babies.”
On October 28th at about 5:30 pm, I was sitting outside and looking at squirrels in a three. The mother and her two babies were moving through the tree. Teaching them, she took them to where the tree was thick with leaves and she went on to a clear opening in the tree. The mother looked around about 3-4 times. The mother did not move-she just sat there looking. Then, she went back to her babies and had them follow her up the tree to a long opening with nothing to hide behind. However, she had to jump over to the branch and the babies could not jump that long of distance, so they went around and jumped over at a higher point that put them in front of her. One took off running up the branch (like he knew where he was going) but she moved around him and jump on top of the baby and started pecking him on top of his head and making all kinds of noises. She stopped after a while and then she lead them both to where they needed to go.
God spoke to me and said, “Look at how the mother squirrel is teaching her babies.”
What the mother squirrel was telling her babies was this: “I have large eyes so I can see all round, I can see what’s ahead of us. I have sharp hearing so I can hear the echo in the wind from the sounds of voices far off, telling me that danger is coming our way. Let me lead the way, follow me, do not get ahead of me because you do not know what is out there waiting on you to make the wrong move.”
God took that which was in the natural world and showed me how to see it in the spirit world.
“Let Me teach you, follow Me.”
We know we want to end up in front of the pearly gates but we do not know the dangers that are on the path that we have to take to get there.
Satan is waiting for us to make the wrong move.
God sometimes has to stop us from moving. “Just hold still and know that I am God.”
He tells us to follow Him. Let Him lead the way. Do His will, His way, and we will get there.
In Hebrews 3:7 it reads, Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says:
Today you must listen to His voice, don’t harden your hearts against Him as Israel did when they rebelled, when they tested God’s patience in the wilderness. (God speaking) “There your ancestors tried My patience, even though they saw My miracles for forty years, so I was angry with them, and I said, ‘Their hearts always turn away from Me, they refuse to do what I tell them.’ So in My anger I made a vow: They will never enter My place of rest (The land of milk and honey).”
Hebrews 4:2 reads “for indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it.
God told Moses to follow Him and He will take the people to a land of milk and honey. With all that they had seen, they still did not have faith enough to follow God. Just a very few entered into God’s rest and Moses was not one of them. Listen! It was about 12,000 thousand adults, not including children, that were led by Moses out of Egypt. (see Exodus for the story)
To follow the will and the way of God is to have faith.
Have faith that what you hear is from God and the faith to know that God is not a man that He should lie nor a son of man that He should repent. Has He said and will He not do? Or, has He spoken and will He not make it good? (Numbers 23:19)
Do you have enough faith to enter into the land of milk and honey, to do God’s will in Gods way?

May God’s love be with you
