He Always Hears You

He hears you! You have no reason to ever doubt that the Lord hears you. He hears you whether you’re praying out loud with a group or alone praying in your head. It sounds a little crazy but He hears your thoughts. I asked the Lord once while praying in my head, “Can you hear my thoughts?” Immediately a very clear and gentle voice replied, “Yes, I hear you.” He always hears you. He listens, He acts and He speaks back. You’re prayers are not wasted beloved. He loves to hear from you.

The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears, And delivers them out of all their troubles. (‭Psalms‬ ‭34‬:‭17‬ NKJV)

Constantly Changing Perspectives

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭55‬:‭8-9‬ NIV)

I’ve realized that throughout life my perspectives are constantly changing. This doesn’t mean that the truth changes but the way I look at things changes. It even happens with memories. I’ll look at an event in the present one way, then later shift my perspective and view it through memory in a different way. We are constantly changing and growing, either for the better or worse. And even the notion of someone changing for better or worse, is in our thinking, based on our constantly changing perspectives. I see it all the time when someone makes a life change, certain people they know will support them and others won’t. So who decides who has the correct perspective? Clearly society does not all agree. The only one who has the completely right perspective is omniscient God. And so I can only pray and trust that as my perspectives change they are changing to be more like His.

Living Joyfully!

Justin:

This post is a great word to strengthen the brethren for the trials we may face in this season.

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. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. (‭James‬ ‭1‬:‭2-4‬ NIV)

These two scriptures encourage us to live with joy in the knowledge that Christ has forgiven our sins and if we have accepted Him as our Savior, then we are truly complete in Him! But, what do you do on the days that things aren’t going so well? Those times when you get a bad report from your doctor or a pink slip from work, what about those days? Are we still supposed to be joyful…

Pure Joy!

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. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. (‭James‬ ‭1‬:‭2-4‬ NIV)

I bless you with pure joy today in Jesus name! You are complete in Him and have the anointing to thrive in the process.

For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power. (‭Colossians‬ ‭2‬:‭9-10‬ NKJV)

More Than Belief

I don’t just want to believe, I want to have faith.

Faith is so much more than belief.

Faith is trust, loyalty and a heart’s allegiance.

Faith is a verb!

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever. (‭Psalm‬ ‭118‬:‭1‬ NIV)

No Suspension

My friend sent me a dream where he was informed of an old trick of Satan in which he keeps us suspended from the will of God.

I felt that this was a word for the whole body this week. Many have been under attack the last couple days but you are free in Christ!

The Devil will tempt you to tempt God. Unpack your God box and don’t fall for attempts to trick you into holding God hostage.

We have everything we need in Christ! Everything!

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, (‭Ephesians‬ ‭1‬:‭3‬ NKJV)

I break off any attempted assignment of the enemy to suspend your life in accomplishing the will of God in Jesus name!
