The Sin of Sodom

The Sin of Sodom

The Sin of Sodom
Ezekial 16:49 “‘Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy.

I’m sure I could create a long devotion, on the sin of Sodom, their wickedness, and many have used the destruction of Sodom, as a text for preaching against homosexuality. I understand how the gay predators tried to rape the angelic strangers that visited Lot’s house, as the traditional interpretation of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.sodom
Homosexuality is wrong, as is any sex outside of a marriage covenant in the eyes of God, but look at this verse, tucked away in the book of Ezekiel.

The real sins of Sodom mentioned here are:
1. Pride and arrogance.
2. Gluttony, and being overfed.
3. Unconcern for the help of the poor and the needy.

Let’s Look at these some:

Pride: Holman’s Bible dictionary has a long definition: http://www.studylight.org/dictionaries/hbd/view.cgi?number=T5098

Yet, I have a very simply one: Pride is simply having a better idea than God, in any area of life.

casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
Any time, any where, any person has thoughts opposed to the word of God, they are in pride. They may be sincere, yet in God’s eyes, they are sincerely wrong. Someone might not have their chest puffed up, or be walking in arrogance of way, yet be proud nonetheless, in that they are doing their own thing, not God’s.

This past couple of years has been interesting for me and my family, as we went from a comfortable income, able to go and eat whatever we wanted, to no income, having to eat at food banks, to finally turning my truck back into the bank, and then our house as we went through foreclosure.There has been a wonderful walk of discovery from what is truly a need or merely a want. Things that I had taken for granted, when removed, become prayer points, where I discover where my heart has really been at.
Learning to survive for weeks, without a dime in our pocket, no vehicle, eating at food banks, has quite honestly changed me, and made me a far better human being, far more accepting, willing to help, non-judgemental, and grateful for the little things in life. Now, I am able to simple see and listen to the poor of this nation, and learn many things, that I could never have heard before.

I remember hearing the story of Heidi Baker, after receiving her PHD from seminary, asking Jesus what He would have her do, and receiving the instruction to go to Mozambique with her husband, with nothing but faith in God, and to ‘sit with the poor and learn of my kingdom’Heidi Baker humility
As I reach out internationally, to Christian brothers and sisters serving the Lord who honestly have to trust the Lord not only for their next meal, but in many cases, the meals of those orphans that have come to them for their daily sustenance, sacrificial living at a level that we here in America cannot comprehend, and as I cry out to God for our daily needs, I am acutely aware that the God I am praying to loves them, exactly as much as He loves me and my children. The nature of my prayers has radically changed. The old cliché’ is true: ‘You never truly discover that Jesus is all you need, until He is all that you have!’.
He can create a humble pathway of provision, that requires a radical, strict obedience, and I am convinced that He is doing exactly that in my life. I am a prosperity preacher! I honestly believe that one of the benefits of serving Jesus is financial prosperity:
3 John 1:2
King James Version (KJV)
2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
Yet, as I have walked this pathway of radical obedience, I have discovered that many, many things in my life were simply wants, soulical desires, that were often born in the world and this culture, not birthed in the fire of the Holy Spirit, and the Word of God.
Let’s talk about a couple of these:
Fitness: I love to stay in shape. My body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, and I like to be strong in the Lord and the power of His might. To do this, used to live P90X, for those of you who know what that is. This involved 6-10 work-outs/week, a structured diet, many protein and body-building supplements, and of course high dollar multivitamins. These all cost money, usually around an extra $200-300/month, plus a gym membership fee. Money has been non-existant, and in many cases, so has food, any food, so work-outs have been in my make-shift gym in my back yard, 3-4 times/week, and then, and only then, when we actually have enough food in the house to justify it, because I have children to feed.

temple
Coffee: I love me some good coffee. Yet, the days of exotic coffee’s have long gone, and I drink regular Folgers when we have been able. I can live with it, or without it.
Desserts: When we have ice-cream or some sweet for dessert or at a church function, I am simply grateful. I’m fighting for healthy meals for the family, simply putting decent calories on the table, with nutrition in them, sweets are low on the priority.
Pets: We have two dogs, a cat, a rabbit, and an aquarium. They eat well, but as I see orphans around the world starving, can I justify the expense of feeding pets, when I should be feeding people, starving children that honestly need food?
Entertainment: Used to hit the movies, and watch the latest and greatest flicks at the theater. Netflix, internet access, and movie nights have not been possible, which has led to family time together where we actually talk to each other, read the Bible, have tickle fights, and love on one another. A walk by the river, and building sandcastles is free, yet builds memories for a lifetime. We still hit movies at the dollar theater as we are able, but my appetites have changed. We enjoy the things of God far more now, because Jesus draws close to us there, as we have drawn close to Him.
Vehicle: For many years, we have had two vehicles. For over a year, we had none. We walked each day to the library for internet and home school, and viola, accomplish a fitness activity, and often skip and sing our way here, laughing as we go. I have believed God for another reliable vehicle, and He has surely heard and answered that prayer, but know this: I will be far more grateful to Him, and far more sensitive to driving others around, for I know intimately what it is like to walk by faith. (He has answered, providing for us a 1998 jeep Cherokee, for which I am very grateful)
Utilities: Never been without them before. Over the past year and a half, we have been without water, gas, and electric for several extended periods of time. Nothing like dark nights, cold showers, or hauling water to simple flush the toilet to make you appreciate services that up until now, I have simply taken for granted. After we moved from our home in November, we have lived with friends, learning that there are radically different ways to do family life than we knew, and we have learned much from each family home we have stayed in. As we travelled to Indian reservations, and spent time with natives, we discovered many have no heat, nor running water, in often extreme climates, yet they are a resilient people, with a deep joy and peace, that has been a great example to us.
The sin of Sodom was in my face, for I now see how I have not only committed all of these three sins, but have lived in them for many years.

Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;

We cry out for revival, that we are willing to pay any price, yet the price God requires, is heart change.
There is financial prosperity in the kingdom of God,
2 Corinthians 8:9
For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.

poor
Jesus died upon the cross for our poverty, our sin, and our sickness.
Yet, during this season of my financial poverty, I am changing, where human eyes cannot see. Deep in my soul, I am prospering, and in my due season, wealth and riches shall again be my portion in life. Gratefully, humbly, in wisdom, will I again walk in the wealth of this world.
Why? Because I believe, no longer blindly, but because Jesus has spoken to me personally about my finances. One morning, in fervent prayer, He reminded me of who He is, King of the Universe, and He said: ‘Son, you cannot seek me the way you have these past years, and come away diminished!’
True faith always has a good report!
James 2:5
Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?

faith
This season too, shall pass, and Jesus, my faithful Lord, shall again honor His Word in my life, and cause me to prosper, increase, and walk in wealth, for I have believed.
Ecclesiastes 3
3 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.
12 I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.
13 And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.

How about you?

I think in my testimonies I have discussed how gluttony has died its horrible death in my life, but let me talk about concern for the poor.

I have honestly not been able to give anything to the poor, despite the thousands of requests we receive for financial aid from those who read this blog. Not one goes by, unnoticed any more. I honestly fervently pray with compassion for every need, trusting Jesus to do what I personally cannot.

poor2

I have faced many days of trouble, and I need the Lord to deliver me as the days have come. Jesus said the poor you will always have with you. Consider them, love them, do not oppress them, and help wherever you can to alleviate human suffering.
Let’s pray:
‘Father, in every season of life, there are lessons to be learned. Help us to recognize the season You have us in, and to be content and faithful in it. May we be quick to learn the lessons we must learn, now, deep within our soul, that in the season of our promotion and favor, we remain humble, grateful, and fully dependent upon You Lord Jesus, Amen’

Still Waters Run Deep!

Still Waters Run Deep!

Still Waters Run Deep
Psalm 71:20
Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up.
Romans 8:39
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Ephesians 3:18
May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
Spent all of last night awake in prayer. Found some AAA batteries, and managed to get my little ‘GO Bible’ plugged in, so that I could listen to audio Bible all night, getting refilled in the deep places of my soul.
I remember when my dad passed. I so wanted him to live. I was just learning about divine healing back then, and I fasted and prayed for 10 days, just water, aggressively in the face of God, seeking Him for a miracle. Dad was only 60, and my mom had passed only two years before, at the ripe old age of 63. Heartbreaking.
During this time, two of my aunts, who were RN’s moved into our house, and looked after dad went they sent him home from palliative care. My strong, 225lb military officer dad, wasted away to 85 lbs with the cancer, and was on 24 hour morphine, with a little electric morphine pump. I was determined to get him healed, but his heart was broken over the loss of mom, and he had given up, he wanted to go to heaven.
During this time, the local priest, and my aunt, sister Emily Walsh, were sitting together in the kitchen, and seemed to be at peace, as they quietly talked to one another. I was working through my relationship with the Catholic church back then, and I blurted out:
‘Don’t you even care, that my father is dying in there!’
Sister Emily smiled, and gently said: ‘Chris, you are familiar with the ocean. The storms may trouble the surface waters, and produce great waves, but the depths remain untouched. Still waters run deep.’
At the time, I was such an emotional basket case, that I didn’t want to hear that. I wanted them to agree with me for my father’s healing. Yet, as I walk out some difficult circumstances these days, I find there is wisdom in their counsel.
In later years, I learned that in the case of divine healing, God will respect the decisions, the free will of the one that is sick. It is not what I am believing that is as important, as what they are willing to believe God for. There is much wisdom in Jesus words to the man at the pool of Bathesda: ‘Do you want to be healed?’
Sometimes, there are cases, where heaven looks better than earth, and honestly, in their hearts, people do not want to get healed.
It seems that in large Catholic families, it is expected that at least one child would serve God in the ministry. Both Karen and I come from Roman Catholic backgrounds, and seems the tradition is bearing fruit yet, as both her and I have been called of God into the ministry, though not in the Catholic church. Though it took several years to sort through the differences between what I was taught as a Catholic growing up, and what I believe now, as a spirit-filled, Bible believing Christian, I am not throwing any rocks at the upbringing. As Christians, we are called to love one another, and though I cannot agree with some of the traditions of the Roman Catholic church, the foundational doctrines of the trinity, the apostles creed, the Word of God, and the Lordship of Jesus are clearly taught there, and on these things, we agree. To dishonor these would dishonor not only the Word of God, but also my parents and all the wonderful heritage I am so grateful for…
This is not written to discuss differences between the Roman Catholic church, and the evangelical spirit filled life I currently live, rather to remind us, that no matter what we are facing, in our day to day world, there is a peace that passes understanding, available to us..
There are depths in Jesus, deeper than the storms you are facing. He is the prince of Peace! His love, goes deeper than our deepest pain, and there can be peace in the midst of the storms of life.
Let’s Pray:
‘Father, I am so glad that Jesus never leaves us, nor forsakes us. That faith always obtains a good report. That Jesus is always the way, and the waymaker in our lives, and that that there is a peace, that passes understanding available to us. We ask for this, today, in your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen.

Jesus on Halloween

Jesus on Halloween

This Halloween, find Jesus!

Mark 1: 1 The beginning of the good news about Jesus the Messiah,[a] the Son of God,[b] 2 as it is written in Isaiah the prophet:
“I will send my messenger ahead of you,
who will prepare your way”[c]—
3 “a voice of one calling in the wilderness,
‘Prepare the way for the Lord,
make straight paths for him.’”[d]

Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, no man can come to the Father, apart from Him. John 14:6

How do I handle Halloween?

Simple, I keep presenting Jesus, that people might choose Him, and Heaven, and avoid hell. There is no other way…
seek lost
The Scripture says that the way of eternal life, salvation, is simple, and plain:

Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
12 ¶ For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

call
You simply believe Jesus died for your sin, was raised from the dead, and if you should simply call upon His name, you will be saved.

Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

The question then is, is Jesus your Lord?

Much of what we do with our time, is temporal, some of it needful, to make a living for ourselves, in this life.

Yet, there is an appointment we will all keep, some sooner, some later, with God.

We will die.

Then what?

You might like this article: https://chrisaomministries.wordpress.com/2014/12/17/teach-us-to-number-our-days/

We will come face to face with what we spent our lives on in this life. Without Jesus, we will depart into a place called hell, a place of everlasting torment.

With Him, there are only two scenarios: For those who accepted Him, yet did not live for Him, who, because of the great love and mercy of our Lord, will make heaven, with no reward.

Yet, there are those of us, actively pursuing the things of God, and doing everything in our power, to live for Jesus, and to build His kingdom.
seek
1Ti 6:19 Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.

As a minister has said, we can only do three things with our life: We can waste it, We can spend it, or we can invest it in eternity.

This is true. Wasteful living in alcohol, immorality, and pursuit of vain and worldly pleasures, can cost us eternal life, if we reject Jesus.

Yet, the majority of people spend their lives, working, investing, and building a better life for themselves, only to discover, that we cannot take it with us.

Then, there are the third group of people, that invest their lives, in light of eternity and who enter glory, to the applause of the great cloud of witnesses, into eternal rank, privilege and reward.

Which one are you? What are you living for?

Today, I’m asking that you join me in this great adventure of faith.

FAITH = Fantastic Adventures In Trusting Him.

Living large, in light of eternity.

Today, I am asking you to not only accept Jesus as your Savior, but to do what I have done, bow your knee, to His Lordship. To give Him all of your life, to consecrate everything you are, have, or hope to be, to Him. Then, He will speak to you, and like the mother of Jesus spoke in her immortal words, so many years ago:

Joh 2:5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.

Let’s Pray:
‘Father, today is Halloween in the world, the day the devil and his disciples rejoice, and attempt to work evil in the earth. You are Almighty God, Creator of Heaven and earth, and Jesus, you are Lord. Today, I give you my heart, my life, my future, and all that I am, or would become. I trust you to speak to me, and show me my next assignment, today. Amen’

Living in the End Times!

Living in the End Times!

Living in the End Times….
Jesus is Lord!
Daniel 8:23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.
24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.
25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.
I do not yet pretend to be an expert on end-time Bible prophecy, or eschatology. Yet, clearly these verses refer to the end-times, and clearly these are the times in which we live. So we see abortion legalized here in America, same-sex marriage legislated, and secret financial dealings of treachery against the United States, the land of the free, and home of the brave, the nation founded for and upon the gospel of Jesus Christ…Horrible things being done, proudly, foolishly in government, that clearly oppose the Scripture, and the One who upholds it!
Isa 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Is 9:7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
Jesus is Lord! He is the Prince of princes!
There is the government of man, and the eternal government of heaven, that stands over the affairs of men, no matter how great they think they are:
Beltashazzar discovered this to his own peril, as Daniel explained to him:
Da 5:18 O thou king, the most high God gave Nebuchadnezzar thy father a kingdom, and majesty, and glory, and honour:
Da 5:21 And he was driven from the sons of men; and his heart was made like the beasts, and his dwelling was with the wild asses: they fed him with grass like oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven; till he knew that the most high God ruled in the kingdom of men, and that he appointeth over it whomsoever he will.
When the government of man opposes the government of God, and there is a church alive, active, in authority declaring the decrees of God, and the decrees of God are always upheld in heavens holiness, that man’s government, and the people seeking to implement it, are disposed, broken, and depending upon their heart before God, either humbled and reused, or forever removed from power and leadership.
For those of us in leadership, this should keep us humble, broken, teachable before the throne…
Da 7:14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.
Jesus Christ is Lord, King over heaven and the earth.
Serve Him, and be blessed, both in this life, and eternally. Reject Him, and discover:
Lu 20:18 Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
I have fallen upon the rock, and been broken, and again am being raised up in his love and power, His servant to the nations…
How about you?
Let’s pray:
‘Father God, I bow before Your throne today, and stand upon Your Word. I would see Jesus today enthroned not only as king of my heart, but in my thoughts, deeds, and decrees. Today, I stand boldly declaring Your kingdom, in righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit today, over my life, the life of my family, and over not only the United States of America, but also these nations you have given me to pray for today. I ask this, knowing I am heard, answered and delivered, for again I ask in Your name Lord Jesus, Amen!

Make the impossible, possible!

faithMake the impossible, possible!

All things are possible to them that believe!

Past couple of days, I have been sharing deep, introspective truth, but sometimes, we need to get back to the basics of life. God is All Mighty! Jesus is Lord! He will use His power to help us when we believe!

Facing some impossibilities in your life?

Luke 18:27 And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.

Mark 9:23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

Yes, faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. Love is the currency of the kingdom by which everything works. Galatians 5:6 but faith which worketh by love.

So you must receive the love of God to recognize your worth. John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

You are a child of the King, powerful in Him, simply and only because you have received Him. There is no way you can love your neighbour as yourself, unless you receive the love of God for yourself. If you don’t know God loves you deeply and intimately, so that your self-worth is established in Him, then your neighbour is in trouble.

We are talking about impossibilities though, and Jesus said that all things are possible to them that believe. Believe what you may ask?

Believe that you are precious. Royalty! A child of the King! You are adopted into the most powerful family this earth has ever seen, the family of the most High God!

You may be in the crosshairs of hell, but heavens arsenal responds with howitzers in the hands of angels. He has charged His angels to watch over you, the 91st Psalm declares. Heaven has not lost track of you or me, Jesus will never leave you nor forsake you, and the host of heaven walks with you. You have guardian angels, and because you serve the Lord of glory, king of heaven, Psalms 34:7 The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.

Though you may feel alone and helpless, Jesus will never leave you nor forsake you, and the specific angels assigned to you, are delivering you from your current circumstance and trial, even though you might not bee able to see, touch, hear, or feel them right now. They are with you, and they fight for you!

You are loved, and because you are loved, your faith will work.

Faith, that is what you believe, moves mountains. Your mouth is what unleashes heavens arsenal against the onslaught of hell against you. That silent belief deep within you has the strength to carry you to untold heights if you would only speak it.

Tears alone do not move God
Desperation does not intimidate God
Manipulation does not control God
Education does not influence God
Faith is the only voice God respects.
Faith is the only method that impresses God to activate miracles.

Faith has a voice. If you believe something, you are going to say something. Let the redeemed of the Lord, say so!

It’s a voice activated system. Your voice, is your address in the realm of the Spirit, and heaven is listening intently, for you child of God, to cry unto Him, to declare into this war torn, sin-sick earth, His promises, His decrees, and His glory, that again, His answer of power brings glory honor and praise, as your testimony, creates eternal witness in this generation of His covenant, His faithfulness, His mercy, greatness and love!

Do you need direction? The word of God declares that it belongs to you. If you are a child of God, you know what to do. Why?

1 John 2:20 But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.

John 16:13 New King James Version (NKJV)
13 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.

After you are heading the right direction, do you need to know how to proceed?

James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

Faith comes by hearing the voice of God.

He will speak to you!

John 10:27 New King James Version (NKJV)

27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.

Then after you hear, I’m going to be like Mary.

John 2:5
His mother said to the servants, “Whatever He says to you, do it.”

James 2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

If you believe something, you are going to do something.

Faith can be seen.

Matthew 9:2 And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.

Faith can be seen!

Matthew 16:8 Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, O ye of little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have brought no bread?

Luke 5:20 And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee.

Not only can faith be seen, but when you exercise it, it will produce sight!

Mark 10:52 And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.

Now some people do ‘acts of faith’ to impress other people, but this is a waste of time.

Jeremiah 17:5 Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.

True faith cares not what people think about what they do, but makes headlines in heaven because God sees.

Job 28:10 He cutteth out rivers among the rocks; and his eye seeth every precious thing.
11 He bindeth the floods from overflowing; and the thing that is hid bringeth he forth to light.
12 But where shall wisdom be found? and where is the place of understanding?
13 Man knoweth not the price thereof; neither is it found in the land of the living.

There are times in life, when there is no earthly solution to our problems. All of our work, study, knowledge, and friendships, fail, and we stand, face to face with only ourselves looking back in the mirror, alone.

Yet, this is a wonderful place to be in! Why? Look up, for this verse is clear,
12 But where shall wisdom be found? and where is the place of understanding?
13 Man knoweth not the price thereof; neither is it found in the land of the living.

What we need is not found in the land of the living! It comes from heaven, from the throne of God, and in His light, we see light!

At the end of our particular stand of faith, is One who stands forever faithful, enthroned in the heavens, and though we may appear to have failed in the eyes of all men, and even our own eyes, it is not over yet! There is one move voice to be heard in this situation, the voice of Jesus, and now matter what you are going through, He is well able to deliver you, today!

What is more precious to God but to be believed?

His only pleasure is to be trusted.
His greatest pain is to be doubted.

God continually arranges scenarios that require your confidence in Him.

You’ve looked to books, to men, to the right and to the left for deliverance from your dilemma. Look up, for your redemption draweth nigh.

Yet can God see what I’m going through? I thought He was a Spirit.

Psalms 94:9 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?

God sees all, knows all and would guide you if you seek him. Psalms 32:8 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.

2 Chronicles 16:9 For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.

God sees alright, and He is looking around the world constantly, for one thing. Faith. A heart full of faith will move Him every time. In fact He will pass over millions, even billions of people to get to one person who believes.

Mark 11:22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

1 John 3:21 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.

1 John 5:14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: 15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

The question is do we have confidence towards God?

Psalms 66:18 If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:

Are you seeking Him? Is He first place? Repent! Believe! Speak to your mountain! Obey! Move towards your dream, and God will move your dream towards you.

Faith releases a flow of miracles into your life. Fear releases heartache and misery into your life.

Step back into the miraculous today.

Let’s pray!

Father, I choose to believe you today. You said that you would guide me, so I trust you to show me what I need to do. I ask you for wisdom, and according to your Word, I receive it right now. I ask you for favor, and I believe you are granting it to me, right now. I ask you for provision, and I believe I receive it, right now. I ask you for forgiveness and mercy, and I thank you for forgiving me, and cleansing me, and revealing again to me your love. Fill me Lord, heal me Lord, grant me boldness and strength to serve you today, in your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen!
