Just speak

In Mark 11:24 Jesus says, "therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours" and Proverbs 23:7 says, "for as a man thinks in his heart, so is he." 

Isn't the writing on the wall simple? When something lives in our heart, all we have to do is open our mouths and speak those things as if we already had them. It is totally amazing how much power we really have, but we throw it away, because of our lack of faith. I've done that for years and let me tell you, it's not happening anymore, because although I have had setbacks because of distractions, I know with focus I am strong and mighty. I'm not giving nothing, no one, and no place another inch of my power if it serves no good. What about you? Would you agree that like me, you've wasting too much time wasting time? 

I am "waiting" on the promises of the Lord. Yes, those things that have never left my heart. And I've been waiting for years for some things. Yet I'm going to keep asking and keep speaking. Getting the blessing of God starts with speaking things as if they were. We have to see ourselves doing the things He has for us -- abundant things.

Spring Cleaning

One of the great things about this time of year is that we can get rid of all the junk we don't need. We may want them, but having certain things around just clutters up our space. Some of those things may be in the form of people, certain people who are getting in the way of our lives. And every single time we see them, we are tripping over them. Perhaps they are in our way, because they were supposed to be long gone and at this point they are messing up the house. It's just too junky!

We don't have to look far to know that some of this stuff we have lying around in almost every nook and cranny of the house just shouldn't be there. Then we ask ourselves, why is that there? Why do I still have that? I haven't used it in years. It's high time we cleared that space, because it serves no purpose anymore (and perhaps never did). We may even question why we bought it in the first place. What in the world were we thinking?

Spring time is a great time of intense cleaning, of new things blossoming and old things withering away. In with the new, like the fresh aroma of beautiful flowers and out with all that old mess that serves no purpose whatsoever.

It's a great time to make that happen.

Being Led

Sometimes there's not much to say or do at certain times. Sometimes we just have to tarry, wait, and ponder on the things of the Lord. We simply must "wait" on direction regarding which way to go and when to do what it is He says we will do.

That's where I am right now.

A Psalm of David

In my reading, I came across other wise words from the wisest book ever written, the bible. These words come from Psalm 15 and they spoke to me:
 
"LORD, who may dwell in your sanctuary? Who may live on your holy hill? He whose walk is blameless and who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from his heart and has no slander on his tongue, who does his neighbor no wrong and casts no slur on his fellowman, who despises a vile man but honors those who fear the LORD, who keeps his oath even when it hurts, who lends his money without usury and does not accept a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things will never be shaken."


The word of God never comes back empty, my medicine.
