What If?!?!

What if we really lived like God were the most important thing? 

What if our plan was to seek You first?

What if we really were a house of prayer for all nations?

What if we possessed the land You had given to us?

What if we did what we were designed to do?

What if we threw out the broken format?

What if we got rid of what was not working and sought to know You?

What if we trashed the gimmicks and sought to really know You?

What if You were our priority?

What if we really loved you with our whole heart?

What if we ordered our lives with You first?

What if we ordered our gatherings with You first?

What if we really acted like we needed you?

What if we really wanted you to show up?

What if we expected You to touch us?

What if You were the most important thing in our lives?

What if we lifted You up and watched as You drew all men to Yourself?

What if we fasted and prayed until You showed up?

What if???

What would happen???

John 12:32 (Jesus speaking) “And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.” 

Matthew 6:33  (Jesus speaking) “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”

Mark 12:29-30 Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment.”

John 15:5  (Jesus speaking) “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.”

Luke 19:10 (Jesus speaking) for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”

Call to Go (Southeast Asia)

IMG_3013

I remember now why I do not take showers in the morning in Asia. The bone-chilling cold water should be reserved for after sweating all day in the heat. However, I am truly awake now as I write this.  This is just one of the few things when God has called us to go, we must give up to say yes.

Your will, your way, your wants and desires are always difficult to give up. “I want it my way.” You may not ever say it out loud, but this is the way you are. I know this, because this is the way I am.  Graciously, the Lord granted me several confirmations that this was a trip I was supposed to be on. I do not often get such clear direction and continually receive confirmation I am supposed to go. I usually just give Him my Yes out of faith.

After the 30+ hours of travel, I can say thank the Lord for giving me the ability to say Yes. Sitting on a plane for any extended amount of time is physically uncomfortable, to put it mildly. However, for me, it has always been hard to sleep so it becomes that much more difficult. But none of this matters because I have said Yes to Jesus and His call for me to go. Unfamiliar places, faces, food, accommodations… None of this really matters for I have given my whole-hearted Yes to Jesus and His way.  

The people here are worth it because He loves them. Even more than that, He is worth it and I love Him!!! Right now, in your life, what is of the greatest value? What do you love the most? What would you hold on to if everything else was stripped away? What if God called you to give that up to Go for Him?  Could you do it? 

My prayer for you is that you hear the call of the Lord to Go and that you say as Isaiah did, “Here I am, send Me!!! No matter the cost, no matter the price I will follow You and say Yes!!!” Jesus is worth flying to the other side of the world and giving up so much! In the same way, He is worth it to lay down your fear, pride, selfishness, to walk next door, up the street, down the fruit aisle… Or wherever else He may have you. He is worth it to give all that You have to speak His good news!!! He gave first, and He gave His best for you.

What do you have to give the Creator of the Universe??? 

I give You my, Yes and my obedience!!! Here I am!!! Send Me!!!

Isaiah 6:8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

Changing History

Daily Encouragement –

What have you done with your life? Who has benefitted? How have you affected history? 

Most people are only concerned with surviving themselves and give little thought to others. This is never who you were designed to be. Come to Me! I am The King of kings who laid down His life willingly so that the whole world may live! My sacrifice was for far more than Me and my people. I died for all nations and all people, no matter how dejected, forgotten, or broken, that they may become part of The Kingdom!  

Everyone deserves the opportunity to see and know the Truth! Come to me! I will give you everything you need to boldly proclaim the good news of The Kingdom and exhibit it’s power. All nations and people must not only hear, but see the Truth coming forth that they may see, consider, and come to be a part of The Everlasting Kingdom! This is how you will change eternity! I love you My child!!!

Isaiah 52:15 “So shall He sprinkle many nations. Kings shall shut their mouths at Him; For what had not been told them they shall see, And what they had not heard they shall consider.”

Wholeness and Purpose

Daily Encouragement – 

Are you feeling forgotten, worn out, and used up? Do you feel all alone trying to make your way in this world? Does your life lack true purpose?

I am Your Maker, Savior, and Redeemer!!! I have made you for great purpose and destiny, and you will come to know these things as you come to know Me. I love you and am always with you no matter how you may be feeling. 

I have chosen you and designed you to be healed, whole and complete in Me. You are to be a witness of all the blessings, freedom, and life I continually pour out upon you. I desire to come closer to you than ever before! 

Come to Me and bring Me your brokenness and uncertainty. I will come to you and bring the wholeness and purpose that you desperately need. Come close and let Me abundantly give from the storehouses of true riches for you are My child and I love you!!!

Isaiah 43:10-12 You are My witnesses,” says the Lord, “And My servant whom I have chosen, That you may know and believe Me, And understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, Nor shall there be after Me. 
11 I, even I, am the Lord, And besides Me there is no savior. 
12 I have declared and saved, I have proclaimed, And there was no foreign god among you; Therefore you are My witnesses,” Says the Lord, “that I am God.

Healthy, Whole, Free!!!

Daily Encouragement  – 

Who or what are you following? What will you do to get ahead? How are you going to advance and be blessed in this life? 

This world and its people will do whatever they think it takes to advance themselves. It’s all about me and mine. In the end, they will only hurt others and themselves for some supposed temporary gain. 

Come to Me! I will be established in mercy! We truly care for each other in My Kingdom! Even as I am established in grace and mercy, My truth will come forth to break off every yoke. True mercy is not blind but speaks in Truth to destroy the devastation of the enemy in in your life. Truth will lead to justice and eventually righteousness if you  continue in My Way. 

Come to Me! I want you to be truly blessed! I desire you to be walking in Truth, receiving justice, and being made righteous. I want you to walk healthy, whole, free and blessed right now in this life and in eternal life to come! I love you My child!!!

Isaiah 16:5 “In mercy the throne will be established; And One will sit on it in truth, in the tabernacle of David, Judging and seeking justice and hastening righteousness.”

Exchange Darkness for The Light

Daily Encouragement March –

Look around you. What do you see? Do you see trouble, gloom, darkness, and heavy burdens? You were never meant to live in any of this. Gloom, darkness, and heavy burdens are not for you!

Come to Me! I am the Light that dispels all gloom and darkness! I am the Light, Hope, and Life! I am The Anointed One that breaks every yoke!

Come to Me and receive My word that you may speak it out and walk in the light I have designed for you. I am the Light of Life and Freedom that you and the whole world longs for! What you need can only be found in Me! Everything else leads to further bondage. 

Come to Me and walk in all the life, freedom, and hope I have for you! I love you My child!!!

Isaiah 8:20-22 “If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them. 21 They will pass through it hard-pressed and hungry; and it shall happen, when they are hungry, that they will be enraged and curse their king and their God, and look upward. 22 Then they will look to the earth, and see trouble and darkness, gloom of anguish; and they will be driven into darkness.”

9:2 “The people who walked in darkness Have seen a great light;
Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, Upon them a light has shined.”

10:27 “It shall come to pass in that day That his burden will be taken away from your shoulder, And his yoke from your neck, And the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil.”

Fully Exposed

Daily Encouragement –

Whose approval do you look to? Where do you go for advice? Would you rather hear the Truth or have someone agree with you?  

I am Truth! When you come to Me, I will not tell you what you want to hear or simply agree with you. I will speak The Truth! I cannot speak a lie or even a hint of deception. My word and promises stand for all eternity and cannot be broken. I will not allow them to be perverted for your own selfish comfort. 

I will expose all deception, bring dark things into the light, and reveal the tiniest hint of wickedness buried within you. I desire you to be completely whole and totally set free from the enemy who has tried to sink his claws into you and bring you down to death. 

Come to Me! Sever every tie to the enemy and his deception. Stand with Me on the solid foundation of My word, and watch as My blessings overtake you!!! I love you My child!!!

Lamentations 2:14 “Your prophets have seen (imagined) for you False and foolish visions; And they have not exposed your wickedness To restore you from captivity [by teaching you to repent], But they have seen (imagined)and declared to you false and misleading oracles.”

V.17 “The Lord has done what He planned; He has accomplished His word Which He commanded from days of old…”
