Yesterday Pastor Brian Pierce stated: "You've got to see it before you see it if you're ever going to see it!" Man, what a confirmation to me to narrow my focus on exactly what God has placed in my spirit. Life has a way of changing seasons on us & if we're not careful we can be like the children of Israel who couldn't appreciate the present glory because it didn't look like the former glory! Change is just ahead & we must remember that movement inspires movement. Your seed's been growing under the ground but you've gotta see it in FULL BLOSSOM/MOTION today. With that simply said, get positioned for the change that's soon to overtake you in the God sort of way. Shondo!
Through every situation requiring an intelligent decision, we MUST stand on the sure Word of God and trust that His promises are true. At every crossroad, we cannot lean to our own finite understanding that has a track record of leaving us stranded every time! Rather, we must acknowledge Him in all our ways knowing that He's ever faithful to direct our paths if we're sensitive enough to follow.
Since not making a decision is inadvertently MAKING a decision we have to pray and seek the mind of God. Then we must resist the temptation to pretend that we didn't get or understand the answer if it's not the one we desired. If we say we trust Him, we must keep believing, keep speaking, keep praying and keep standing until He makes it do what it do. Selah.
As a kid, my Mom & Grandmom used to pick and shuck corn. I used to run when they brought the bushel barrels home because I did NOT want to see any worms! I never once gave thought to the planting, waiting and growth process. All I knew was that I wanted my corn cleaned, cooked and with butter on it at the dinner table! That was my natural, kiddie perspective.
(Mark 4:28) says: For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear. EVERYTHING'S a process. According to the Word of God... if we scatter the seed, they will sprout, grow and yield something BIG! With that being said, I'm all grown up now and ready to shuck some corn. I've got my sickle ready... what about you?
GET YOUR BASKETS READY FOR THE LOW HANGING FRUIT that is ripe on the vine and belongs to you! No ladder or step stool needed; it's just that close! Reach up & grab it; it's yours for the asking, plucking or pulling down! Some of it is SO OVER DUE that all you have to do is take that ONE STEP towards it and by God... it's simply going to FALL down because your Spirit has willed it into your hands.
They shall build houses and inhabit them; They shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit (Isa 65:21).
3 Questions Concerning Christian Curb Appeal:
Whenever I've been on a search for a property to purchase, curb appeal has been a big draw for me due to my extremely visual nature. While watching an earlier episode of HGTV, I heard a lot about the importance of curb appeal. It's so crucial because it can either make or break a deal before a potential buyer ever even enters the home. I don't know about you but when house hunting I immediately know when I want to get out of the car to see more OR when I want to keep right on driving because the advertisement has been deceptive!
No matter if it involves ushering new souls into the kingdom, building new relationships, buying new homes or connecting with new business associates, the winning draws are the same. We must make very sure that we are attractive, approachable and accessible in our presentations. Human nature demands it as sight is such a powerful tool so let's be ready to deliver and seal the deal!
Anybody remember Whodini's song, "The Freaks Come Out At Night?" Maybe your era played Wilson Pickett's crooning "Gonna wait til the midnight hour, that's when my love comes tumbling down." Lol! We know these songs referred to people getting ready to get their club and their "hustle" on but that's not my perspective tonight.
What comes to my mind is that MIDNIGHT ain't always a bad or negative time frame that only yields foolishness! It can actually be a wonderfully blessed time for the children of God. I don't hear Whodini and I don't hear Wilson Pickett but I do I hear Fred Hammond belting out: "LATE IN THE MIDNIGHT HOUR, GOD'S GONNA TURN IT AROUND! It's GONNA WORK IN YOUR FAVOR!"
A very familiar passage of scripture supports this in Acts 16: That it was at MIDNIGHT that Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one's bands were loosed. And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled. But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here. Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas, And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house. And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.
A word to the weary: "LATE IN THE MIDNIGHT HOUR, GOD'S GONNA TURN IT AROUND! It's GONNA WORK IN YOUR FAVOR!" Watch the evidence of the day show how God worked for you at midnight. Selah.
The Holy Spirit is continually... INCREDIBLE! LATEEE in the mid[night] hour & all through the night the Lord made obstacles REROUTE & turn favor's corner in the lives of His people everywhere. At mid[day] today I heard the term "Breakthrough" & though already knowing what it means I felt compelled to look it up. "Breakthrough" is defined as: 1) an offensive THRUST that penetrates and carries beyond a defensive line in warfare, 2) an act or instance of breaking through an obstacle, 3) a sudden ADVANCE especially in knowledge or technique and 4) an important discovery that happens after trying for a long time to understand or explain something. I know it's been a minute now and has seemed that breakthrough might never come but the decree has been issued and it shall be for you just as the Lord has said! Eat the dust of defeat? Never! You're more than a conqueror so go ahead & praise Him because it's already done! Oh , clap your hands, all you peoples! Shout to God with the voice of triumph! For the Lord Most High is AWESOME; He is a great King over all the earth. (Psa 47:1-2). Shalom, Shalom.
We're THREE days into September - the birthing month. Somebody needs to know that "THINGS ARE ABOUT TO CHANGE!" Is your natural nursery ready for what's surely coming out of your spiritual womb... ANY... DAY... NOW?! Selah.
Thought to carefully ponder: "Are you truly prepared to receive that which you have been asking for?"
"It's Harvest Time!" (Gal 6: 7- 10): Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for WHATEVER a man sows, THAT he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap...
“It's Harvest Time!"
Each and every day that we, by the grace and mercies of God arise, we must make a decision. We must be very decisive of whether we will be Spirirt-led and Spirit-controlled or foolishly follow our flesh. Consciously making this decision prompts one to selflessly steal away in quiet long enough to hear what the Spirit has to say. The ability to consistently practice this discipline can only be gained through relationship for most often than not The Lord's revelation is not found in the wind, the earthquake, or the fire, but rather in a still, small voice whispering to your heart, "This is the way; walk in it." We must in this hour be able to properly discern direction concerning harvest for it is the godly sower's DUE season! Even now I hear Spirit saying that not one godly seed sown will fall to the wayside, fall on stony places, be sun scorched, or choked out by thorns! Every promise of God to the sower is still yes and amen! God would have you to know Beloved that He has seen your labor, toil, and sweat. He was even watching as the enemy entered your fields by night, sowed those miserable tares amongst your wheat, and then snuck away like the very thief that he is! The saving grace is that "No weapon formed against you shall prosper." God would have you to know that He is pleased to see that though you sometimes stagger, you do not stay stuck. He is satisfied to hear the report that you're yet and still holding on. He is honored every time you are wise enough to run and hide in the cleft of the Rock where darkness cannot overflow you! Because you seek His face more than His hand, He wants me to speak a blessing over you. I decree and declare that you MUST walk in dominion and take authority over your own harvest. Shake your spirit, open your mouth, and place an "ANY DAY NOW!" demand on the anointing of God for all that concerns you. I decree and declare that everything that belongs to you must be RELEASED to you in this harvest season. It comes to you now for I cancel demonic delay on your behalf. Elevate your expectations and get in receiving mode for the sure gushing that is about to come upon you. Selah.
