BELIEVE and RECEIVE

I am rejoicing and spilling over for He alone is my God, the Christ, the Lamb, whom the Father unveiled by His Word. Jesus returned to the Father so that the Holy Spirit would occupy the building. The glorious Architect, the ONE who designed and engineered my body is the only ONE who is worthy of all praise. Recorded herein, the newest miracle that a crowd shall gather to celebrate – ALL that the Lord has done. It is entirely marvelous to behold!  Many construction workers contributed to the repair needed in my spirit. Their prayers assisted the faith required for my victory walk today. The agony of doubt that this runner experienced – was because I studied a diagnosis instead of the Word of God. I doubted that I would ever cross the finish line of suffering —

I was given a book by a friend which was filled with HOPE in the Scriptures. “God Wants You Well” I kept my hands on the plow – and tilled the soil of my soul and uprooted boulders of unbelief. The truth came shining through as the ONE responsible for all mighty miracles whispered “It is Finished”. Time searching for what “I” needed to do or what “I” needed to forgive in myself was foolish. Finally, the Spirit arrested all my doings and said ” Be still and just RECEIVE. ” The fact that Jesus forgave me, purchased me, adopted, and healed me made my efforts counter my faith. He declared that I am His. I am filled with the authority and power of the Holy Spirit.

This truth ever astounds me,—yet today, in this moment I choose to fully grasp it. He washed me clean and gave me His robe of righteousness. He kissed my wounds and said “Pick up your mat and walk, and don’t look back!”

I have never earned the right to serve God, but I serve Him gladly with all my heart. I am entirely devoted to the ONE who planned all the days of my life. I choose to live entirely delivered, as I walk in divine health, free of any condemnation. I give God all the honor and glory that He alone deserves!

“He alone is your God, the only ONE who is worthy of your praise, the ONE who has done these mighty miracles that you have seen with your own eyes.” Deut 10:21 NLT — Holy Spirit continue to invigorate our being, animate us, anoint our words as we pray for others with authority. May Your blazing Light set many prisoners free today. Go before us, open hearts and prepare minds —open the ears of the deaf. Embrace the disillusioned, transform their ashes into beauty. Make this day a JUBILEE for all those You set free! Inspired by reading Psalm 119:174 and Isaiah 61.

“in Him we live and move and have our being” Acts 17:28  My walk of faith includes health and freedom to move –through the finished work of Jesus on the cross. Therefore, I do not act sick, speak sick or freak out with any twinge of discomfort. I choose to immediately command, with authority, that my body is healthy. I negated my faith in God when I ingested the lies, the opinions of man. When doubt grows into unbelief, our faith is wounded and rendered ineffective. I spent time building up my faith, reassuring my spirit with Scripture, that Jesus is all I need. Our Salvation package is all inclusive, entirely paid for. We are invited to drink as much of the living water …and eat as much of the Bread of Life as we can until we are filled to overflowing. From the cross Jesus cried out “It is Finished” 

Our Father predestined His Son Jesus to be born, walk among us, be rejected, tortured, killed and resurrected as the the Lamb of God who takes away our sins, and the sins of the world.  All glory to God! The Spirit means what He says, and says what He means. I choose to eat the full counsel of God, and as His word fully penetrates all my resistance, only then can I release the faith He gave me. By the Holy Spirit’s counsel, I apply His Word to my circumstance. Walking in the Spirit and praying in the Spirit, I assure myself that I am His, and He is my Lord, my Healer, Teacher and Comforter. Humbly I admit to Him that I was still trying to figure things out on my own. He knew, embraced me and emboldens my tongue with a passionate fire. When He speaks through us, it will not come back void. Living life more abundantly is to allow the Holy Spirit to quicken us, convict us with a shaking “Hey, I have never left you, let me handle this!” At Pentecost He arrived as a forceful wind, to set souls ablaze with a desire for God—-His word is alive, never lifeless. If we allow Him, His words flow freely to bless others. Technology changes, but God never changes and every living Word will come to pass. We don’t know how the Holy Spirit moves in us, but He does. We don’t know what the sound of the Shepherds voice will exactly sound like, or how we will be raptured. The Word of God says “just believe” Like a child, without question or doubt, without comparing Hus Word with lessons learned, JUST BELIEVE. 1 Corin 15:52 ” The Perisible is clothed with the imperishable!” How? Be astounded, and just enjoy it. It is not important how, because God’s ways are not our ways. Regardless of our capacity, God works and gives us a revelation. His living Word works. AMEN

Courageously —STEP OUT IN FAITH

Open your heart to God’s power. That step of faith will cause your reality to shift and your spirit will be transformed. God wants you well, whole and joyful. Not everyone gets the healing they pray for, but WHY NOT trust God in the process! Begin to believe that if God said it, you are free to step into the healing that God wants for you. “Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.” 1 Peter 2:24 KJV

—Overcome evil’s intent to destroy your FAITH in our God of Miracles. Hebrews 2:14-18 HCSB “Now since the children have flesh and blood in common, Jesus also shared in these, so that through His death He might destroy the one holding the power of death—that is, the Devil— and free those who were held in slavery all their lives by the fear of death. For it is clear that He does not reach out to help angels, but to help Abraham’s offspring. For since He Himself was tested and has suffered, He is able to help those who are tested.” Jesus is our High Priest, we are His offspring, we have been healed, adopted, and sealed with the Holy Spirit. BELIEVE IT without a doubt!

This young girl contracted the swine flu at age 9. “I just want to go to Colorado and have some fun! Im so sick of being sick” She had been in and out of hospitals for years and the doctors were baffled. Maren began seeking the Healer and she stepped out of her wheelchair without pain. “I went from laying in a bed for so many years, doing absolutely nothing, to living this absolutely abundant life with every day full of joy!” Maren Hamm now works in a call center praying with others who need a boost of FAITH.

  1. “Even if” He chooses to leave us in our bodily troubles, it’s our souls that He is after! Trust Him in the even ifs. Our reward is in heaven and we don’t get to keep these bodies anyways. Only the soul matters to Him. Be blessed, sister!

    • AMEN SISTER Gabby, we will leave these worn out tents behind! Indeed our Father is after our souls, He sent His Son to pay for our sins and by His stripes we can claim healing. Good people, strong believers get cancer, parkinsons, arthritis and all manner of disease in this fallen world. But just as you declared, these bodies will turn to dust as our spirit lives forever. I am a walking, talking, testifying child of the King. At 71 years of age, I am pleased to recount at least 5 miracles during my 46 years of trusting in Jesus. Our God wants us healthy that we may witness to others. This week my doctor was astounded at my sudden progress, my blood test is in black and white, and it is a miracle thus far, and I expect that it will only improve. Our FAITH is a gift and our Father wrote to tell us how to deploy it. Our soul matters, and yet our Father also carries every one of our tears in a bottle. He always speaks the truth, and He said we will suffer, it is how we suffer — Suffer for a little while, yes, we all do – but not without a trust of Who will see us through. Our Father still performs miracles as His mercy is fresh every day. Our Father is pleased when we trust Him for a healing. In the meantime, no matter what translation — Isaiah said “He was wounded because of our rebellious deeds, crushed because of our sins; he endured punishment that made us well; because of his wounds we have been healed.’ NET – “He was pierced because of our rebellion, crushed because of our iniquities; punishment for our peace was on Him, and we are healed by His wounds.” CSB – “He was wounded because of our crimes, crushed because of our sins; the disciplining that makes us whole fell on Him, and by His bruises we are healed.” CJB ––BE BLESSED, BE STILLED in His Presence and take it all in. YOU are LOVED

      • No offense taken, my words just spill out with a passion as my soul bows to His grace for all that He has recently done —I have recently experienced a refreshing wind from heaven – which has aroused a sacred enthusiasm -a rushing wind of the Holy Spirit – which quickened me to be diligent in my speech. With a humble, prostrate heart, I exist because of His consuming fire. Blessing to you sister, keep up spreading the good news. It took 46 years to build the temple, and it has taken 46 years for me to finally grasp the tongue of fire in me –may your zeal for our Lord further illuminate many as His light burns like a flame. My recent personal pentecost spewed inadequate words for all He has done. Your writings are such a blessing to so many – keep the fire, the intensity, passion of the Holy Spirit flowing with life giving words. May He bless your tongue with fire —Jesus breathed on them and said “Receive the Holy Ghost.”

      • That meant more to me than you understand. I too with a humble, broken heart spill out when I write or talk. I pray it is always so and with deeper understanding of the Lord God and His precious Son Jesus!

        O LORD, Thank You for Your fast delivery from despair, doubt, fear, and hopelessness. Your Word delivered the Truth for FREE! Holy Spirit continue to invigorate my life, animate my being, anoint my words so that others will call out to You to be delivered from guilt and sin. May Your blazing Light supernaturally set many prisoners free today. May my zeal for all You have already accomplished stir the rebellious to seek God to satisfy their emptiness. Go before me and prepare hearts and open the ears of the deaf. Embrace the disillusioned, transform their ashes into beauty. Adorn them with a cloak of righteousness that replaces despair. Make this day a JUBILEE for all those You set free! Psalm 119:174 and Isaiah 61.

  4. Contemplation includes a vast majority of foreknowledge – which collects through a stream of human absorption. “Be still and know God” often gets excluded from such pondering. God is all knowing, He is Sovereign and as we wrestle to know all things of ourselves—peace and rest come when we accept our limit and His boundless best —which is felt most as we cease to strive, and surrender all of our mind to He who created us with limits for His purpose. Wisdom and discernment come from asking, receiving and being at peace to know we are loved, flaws and all.
