LIFE Within THE WORD

ASKS

(Matthew 4:4 NIV- Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every Word that comes from the mouth of God.’”)

Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every Word that comes from the mouth of God. … Those were the very words that completely changed my life spiritually. As believers, I think we’ve all had moments or experiences that really solidified in our hearts “Ok, this whole God thing is for real”. I’ve had several things that have happened in my life where I knew that it was only God, but my very first “spiritual aha moment” happened about 5 years ago when I read Matthew 4:4.

I had been attending church my whole life, but it wasn’t until I read that particular verse for myself that I realized that it was The Word that was the missing piece to my puzzle of life. And it was The Word that would complete me and make me whole. Reading that one verse led to me reading The Bible in It’s entirety and from there my whole life changed because that’s where I found true intimacy with God. My heart longed for greater because I belonged to The Greatest. (1 Corinthians 3:23 NLT- You belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God.)

So, what was Jesus really saying when He said, “Man can not live on bread alone.”?

Here’s what I believe. We merely exist without the consumption of The Word of God. And so, to truly live and thrive in all that He’s purposed us to be one must feast on His Word daily. Meaning just as our bodies long for food to function and operate at their best, our spirits hunger and long for the peace, strength, and Life that is God’s Word. (Luke 6:47-48 MSG- These words I speak to you are not mere additions to your life, homeowner improvements to your standard of living. They are foundation words, words to build a life on. If you work the words into your life, you are like a smart carpenter who dug deep and laid the foundation of his house on bedrock. When the river burst its banks and crashed against the house, nothing could shake it; it was built to last.)

I don’t know about you, but I’m completely in love with the phenomenal thought and beautiful truth that through God’s Word— I am built to last. And I pray that you would never lose sight of the fact that through His Word— you too are built to last. … Take a moment to truly allow your spirit to imbibe that truth. Everything we need is found in The Word. Christ is The Word and the more we consume It the more He becomes alive in us.

So today, I just want to remind you that there is Life within His Word and It has the power to love, calm, comfort, strengthen, encourage, inspire, empower, heal, renew, transform, and restore. The greatest gift that we can give to ourselves is to make the choice to partake of The Word and cling to The Life that lies within IT. (Psalm 119:114 MSG- You’re my place of quiet retreat; I wait for Your Word to renew me.)

Abba, today and everyday, increase the hunger of our hearts to seek and embrace the wisdom and truth that lies within Your Word. Give us a greater understanding of the value that It holds in and through our lives. Lord, help us to surrender to the freedom that is found in seeking You and obeying Your Word and Father, in seeking You may we find ourselves and all that You’ve purposed us to be. I pray that we would hide Your Word in our hearts that we would never sin against You. Abba, may our lives always be a reflection of Your Life within us. In the name of Jesus Christ, Your precious Son, and our Lord and Savior— I pray, Amen and so be it.

HIS Name Alone Is Enough

ASKS

(Exodus 3:13-14 AMP- And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!)

In reading today’s focal passage, I was reminded of this powerful truth— in and through every situation and every circumstance the name of The Lord is enough.

I dream and believe on a level that even I am often astonished by, but I know in my heart that as long as God is with me I have strength for all things. (Philippians 4:13 AMP- I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency.)

But what happens when God calls us to do something that is so much greater than what we feel we have the ability to accomplish? What happens in those moments when we’re seeking His provision, but can’t necessarily feel His Presence or hear His voice?

The answer is, whether we can hear His voice or feel Him with us or not— He’s always there. And we simply have to know and trust that what ever He asks of us or wherever He’s leading us, He’s already prepared the way. (Exodus 23:20 NIV- See, I Am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared.)

I made a covenant with God that I would surrender to His Will and blindly follow wherever He leads. Meaning, I don’t have to see to believe. I don’t have to know or even understand to trust His process.

I can tell you from experience that this is a journey that has not always been easy and I’ve certainly had moments when I’ve felt like giving up. But I can also tell you that choosing to trust Him has been the best decision that I’ve ever made in my entire life. I am acutely aware of how His Presence in my life is continually molding me and making me greater in Him. And for that, I am eternally grateful.

As “genius” as I am, I’m still human and far from perfect. In all honesty, I still have moments where I feel inadequate and even unqualified to do the majority of what God has planted in my heart to accomplish. However, the beauty in that is, it’s not about what I feel, but in Whom I trust because in Him— I am sufficient.

Like Moses, I’ve had those “But Lord, what if?” moments and like Moses, God has always reminded me that in all things, in all situations, and in all circumstances— His name alone is enough!

I Am has sent me to you and today I just want to remind you that no matter what you’re going through or struggling with, God is with you. And in those moments when fear and doubt start to creep in remember that He is enough and you are sufficient in Him.

Dear Heavenly Father, today and everyday, let Your Holy Presence ever-increase within our hearts and in our lives. Lord, no matter how tedious the journey help us to trust You always and never doubt. Help us to realize and understand that You are more than sufficient, You will sustain us, and in You our worth and value are incomparable. Abba, whenever we lose sight of that truth, remind us that to simply call on Your name is enough. In the name of Jesus Christ, Your precious Son, and our Lord and Savior— I pray, Amen and so be it.

“If you took the love of all the best mothers and fathers who ever lived (think about that for a moment) — all the goodness, kindness, patience, fidelity, wisdom, tenderness, strength and love — and united all those virtues in one person, that person would only be a faint shadow of the love and mercy in the heart of God for you and me.” ~ Brennan Manning

HOLY SPIRIT, Scatter Within Me THY Cheerful Beams

ASKS

(John 14:12 NOG- “I can guarantee this truth: Those who believe in Me will do the things that I am doing. They will do even greater things because I Am going to The Father.”)

Today’s focal verse is one of my favorite verses because it reminds me of this incredibly powerful truth— the very moment that Jesus gave His Life and sent His Holy Spirit was the very moment that solidified God’s purpose for my life.

Christ choosing the cross for my salvation will never be in vain because in Him saving my life, I realize, understand, and appreciate that the greatest of who I am is visual only because His Spirit is alive in me.

To me, Jesus saying that for those of us who believe in Him, we will not only do the work that He has done, but that we will do even greater means that He possessed this phenomenal faith in us that He knew was so much greater than we would ever have the ability or capacity to conceptualize and see within ourselves.

Jesus knew that our faith in Him and in ourselves would sometimes waver. He knew that there would be times when on our own, we would simply fall short. He knew that times would arrive in our lives when we would need to be reminded of The Greater that lives within us. (John 14:25-26 MSG- I’m telling you these things while I’m still living with you. The Friend, The Holy Spirit Whom The Father will send at My request, will make everything plain to you. He will remind you of all the things I have told you.)

It is by us living and walking in the power, ability, provision, and authority of His Holy Spirit that allows us to blossom and thrive in the greater that He has gifted to us.

So today, I just want to remind you that you possess the power and Spirit of The Living God on the inside you. There is nothing that you can’t do because our God makes all things possible. Remember that before you were even born The Lord set you apart because He had a holy and perfect purpose for your life. Let nothing and no one rob you of that truth. (1 John 4:4 MSG- You come from God and belong to God. You have already won a big victory over those false teachers, for The Spirit in you is far stronger than anything in the world.)

Dear Heavenly Father, today and everyday forth, let Your Holy Spirit remind us of and guide us to our greater in You. Lord, help us to understand and embrace the perfect plan that you have purposed for our lives. Allow our hearts to always be cognizant of the beauty and value of the desires that you planted within us. Father, as we live our lives for You, help us to realize that the dreams that seem impossible for us to achieve on our own are the very dreams that are made possible with Your help and by Your power. Lord, in us knowing that, please give us the heart to seek You first and always. In the name of Jesus Christ, Your precious Son, and our Lord and Savior— I pray, Amen and so be it.

LORD, Not My Will, But YOUR Will Be Done

ASKS

(Number 14:17 NJKV- I pray, let the power of my Lord be great, just as You have spoken.)

My prayers at times have often mirrored the exact words of today’s focal verse because planted and deeply rooted in my heart is this beautiful and powerful truth— no word spoken forth by my Abba Father will ever fail. (Isaiah 55:11 NET- The Promise that I make does not return to Me, having accomplished nothing. No, It is realized as I desire and is fulfilled as I intend.) (Luke 1:37 NIV- For no Word from God will ever fail.)

I fully trust in His Word with my whole heart and soul. However, what today’s focal verse truly made me realize is, I often pray like that when my heart is consumed with worry and not when it’s filled with the faith and confidence in The Lord that it should be spoken forth in. It’s like I’m asking God to let His promises come to fruition by my will and in my timing instead of trusting Him to do it by His Will and in His timing.

And in reflecting upon that, I was reminded of these precious and Life-giving words from Christ … (Luke 12:27-28,31-32 VOICE- “Think about those beautiful wild lilies growing over there. They don’t work up a sweat toiling for needs or wants—they don’t worry about clothing. Yet the great King Solomon never had an outfit that was half as glorious as theirs! Look at the grass growing over there. One day it’s thriving in the fields. The next day it’s being used as fuel. If God takes such good care of such transient things, how much more you can depend on God to care for you, weak in faith as you are. Since you don’t need to worry—about security and safety, about food and clothing—then pursue God’s kingdom first and foremost, and these other things will come to you as well. My little flock, don’t be afraid. God is your Father, and your Father’s great joy is to give you His kingdom.”)

I know that The Word, Will, and timing of our Heavenly Father is flawless; complete and absolute perfection and I desire to know Him so intimately that I never ask for anything to be done by my own will. I desire to know Him so wholly and personally that like Jesus, I simply enter His Presence and say, “Abba Father, not by my will, but by Yours.”. (Luke 22:41-43 NIV- He withdrew about a stone’s throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed, “Father, if You are willing, take this cup from Me; yet not My Will, but Yours be done.”. An angel from heaven appeared to Him and strengthened Him.)

Jesus said that if we will just seek His kingdom and put Him first, then The Father would give and bestow upon us all things including the kingdom of heaven. What an incredibly beautiful promise for our hearts to embrace and behold. My heart’s greatest prayer for you is that your heart would never lose sight of that powerful, life-changing, Life-giving truth.

Abba Father, today and everyday, help us to seek you first. Help us to stay Christ-focused and Holy Spirit-guided that we would come to know you greater and trust you wholly and completely. Help us as mere human beings to understand Your profound wisdom that we would wholeheartedly know and believe that Your Will and Your timing is immaculate and flawless. Help to us never doubt You in any way, but to put our faith and hope in You always. In the name of Jesus Christ, Your precious Son, and our Lord and Savior— I pray, Amen and so be it.

Fighting The Battles Of Life With Joshua-like Faith

ASKS

(Joshua 10:12-14 CEV- The Lord was helping the Israelites defeat the Amorites that day. So about noon, Joshua prayed to The Lord loud enough for the Israelites to hear: “Our Lord, make the sun stop in the sky over Gibeon, and the moon stand still over Aijalon Valley.”. So the sun and the moon stopped and stood still until Israel defeated its enemies. This poem can be found in The Book of Jashar. The sun stood still and didn’t go down for about a whole day. Never before and never since has The Lord done anything like that for someone who prayed. The Lord was really fighting for Israel.)

As I read today’s focal passage it made me think about how much greater the quality of our lives could be if we all possessed that same unwavering faith in our Heavenly Father that Joshua had taken into battle with him that day. What would the reflection of our lives mirror if we never questioned or doubted The Lord’s Presence and power in our lives— but entered His Presence wholeheartedly trusting and believing that what ever we ask of Him in faith, He would liberally and graciously provide?

What astonished me about Joshua’s battle prayer is the manner in which he prayed. If you notice, he didn’t just ask The Lord to still the sun and provide the light that he needed to win the battle. His prayer was more along the lines of a faithful and declarative invocation. Meaning he didn’t ask. He simply spoke it forth in faith and trusted that The Lord would grant his request. To me, the incredible thing about that was— God did exactly that.

“The sun stood still and didn’t go down for about a whole day. Never before and never since has The Lord done anything like that for someone who prayed. The Lord was really fighting for Israel.” <— I was truly amazed by this and I contemplated why it is that God had never answered a prayer like that before and why it is that He hasn’t done it since. Could it be that it’s because we lack that Joshua-like faith? Could it be because when we enter God’s Presence it’s not with the kind of purposeful and tenacious faith needed to still the sun over our battles of life? Could it be because in our hearts we’ve already given up before the battle has even begun and we only enter The Lord’s Presence out of desperation and defeat and not with a true heart of faith and expectancy?

Today, I encourage you to let Joshua’s unfaltering faith be a reminder to you that when you enter The Presence of God and lay your concerns before Him, arise with a heart of expectancy knowing that our God is Jehovah Jireh and He will provide for those who believe in Him. (Mark 9:23 NKJV- Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”)

Just as The Lord honored the prayers of Joshua and fought for Israel, know that He can and will do the same in every single battle that you’re facing in your life. (Exodus 14:14 AMP- The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace and remain at rest.) Enter God’s Presence in faith and believe that He will answer your prayers because your faith allows Him to still the sun creating the light you need to conquer your battles and live a life of victory.

“Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe.” ~ Saint Augustine

YOU, LORD, Keep My Lamp Burning

ASKS

(Psalm 18:28-36 NIV- You, Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light. With Your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall. As for God, His way is perfect: The Lord’s Word is flawless; He shields all who take refuge in Him. For who is God besides The Lord? And who is The Rock except our God? It is God Who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure. He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; He causes me to stand on the heights. He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze. You make Your saving help my shield, and Your right hand sustains me; Your help has made me great. You provide a broad path for my feet, so that my ankles do not give way.)

Today’s focal passage was a beautiful reminder for me of all that God brings to my life. I thought about how He truly is perfection; incomparable and all-powerful, yet loving, gracious, and faithful.

The verse above says, “For who is God besides The Lord?”. That truly fueled my spirit this morning because there is no one greater than our God. He loves us to the core of who we are. He knows our hearts from it’s greatest joy to it’s deepest burden and provides the strength we need accordingly.

The other day, I told a friend of mine that I just love when God provides exactly what we need in the exact and very moment that we need it most. So, when I tell you that I am continually amazed by Him, I mean that with all of my heart because what He gives, only He can give. I have learned to trust that He’ll supply all of my needs whether it’s in the exact moment that I feel I need it most or not. I know that He is unwaveringly faithful, His promises endure forever, and HIS timing is flawless.

“You, Lord, keep my lamp burning” … What a powerful and incredibly beautiful truth to allow our hearts to take a hold of. To me that means if I cry out to Him and He doesn’t immediately give me the provision that I seek, His Light will sustain me until He does. (Psalm 119:105 NIV- Your Word is a Lamp for my feet, a Light on my path.) I find that truth absolutely amazing!

Today, I just want you to know that our God is sovereign! Even when you don’t get the instant or immediate response that you seek, know that when He does answer it will be perfection. He Is The Lord and He will keep your lamp burning! You will radiantly shine by His Light!

When You Are Weakest, You Are Strongest

ASKS

(Philippians 4:13 AMP- I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency.)

When we’re feeling troubled, weak, and torn or let down our first thought or initial assessment is usually not that we’re positioned in a place of eternal strength. In all honesty, our initial response emotionally is usually a sense of brokenness, hopelessness, and despair. But The Word of God says, when we’re at our lowest and weakest point, that’s when we’re able to truly experience the perfection that is His grace; that’s when we’re able too see the strength and glory of Christ come to fruition in it’s greatest form within our lives. (2 Corinthians 12:9-10 NOG- But He told me: “My kindness is all you need. My power is strongest when you are weak.” So I will brag even more about my weaknesses in order that Christ’s power will live in me. Therefore, I accept weakness, mistreatment, hardship, persecution, and difficulties suffered for Christ. It’s clear that when I’m weak, I’m strong.)

I often tell people that they are gems in whom our God treasures, but I think more often than not they take it as just a kind gesture and not as the love and life that I speak it forth in faith over their lives as; not as a promise of truth that is to be sincerely embraced within their hearts. I don’t think they realize or understand that I say it because God has gifted us the treasure of Christ’s Spirit to live within our hearts and we then in turn radiate and glow of the very essence that is His beauty and majesty. (2 Corinthians 4:6-7 NLT- For God, Who said, “Let there be light in the darkness,” has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ. We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves.)

Though Jesus endured brutal suffering, He overcame and conquered it all, even death itself. And He loves and values us so much that He chose to instill that same power within us by sending us His perfect Holy Spirit. My point is, there is nothing that shall come against us in this world that we don’t hold the power to conquer. God so treasures us that He allows us embody very the light, love, and life of Jesus within us ensuring that nothing will be too difficult for us to bear or too hard for us to endure and that we will always overcome victoriously through The Spirit of our Savior! (2 Corinthians 4:8-9 NLT- We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed.)

Today, I pray over you and encourage you with my whole heart to take ahold of the truth of this great promise from our Heavenly Father: When you are at your weakest, you are at your strongest because The Spirit of Christ living on the inside of you will eternally be your strength!

Hope In THE LORD Never Disappoints

ASKS

(Ecclesiastes 3:11 NLT: God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.)

Our God has made everything beautiful for its own time. Did you know that that includes you?

Today’s focal verse says, “He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end”. I think the eternity that He’s planted in our hearts solidify that we have the capacity to infinitely place our hope in Him even when we can’t see or feel Him at work in our lives. In other words, He created us with the capacity and power that our hope would forever increase and never fail.

I find it pretty amazing that He instilled this incredible gift of hope in our hearts that we would forever be encouraged and uplifted through our faith in Him. (Roman 5:1-5 MSG- By entering through faith into what God has always wanted to do for us—set us right with Him, make us fit for Him—we have it all together with God because of our Master Jesus. And that’s not all: We throw open our doors to God and discover at the same moment that He has already thrown open His door to us. We find ourselves standing where we always hoped we might stand—out in the wide open spaces of God’s grace and glory, standing tall and shouting our praise. There’s more to come: We continue to shout our praise even when we’re hemmed in with troubles, because we know how troubles can develop passionate patience in us, and how that patience in turn forges the tempered steel of virtue, keeping us alert for whatever God will do next. In alert expectancy such as this, we’re never left feeling shortchanged. Quite the contrary—we can’t round up enough containers to hold everything God generously pours into our lives through The Holy Spirit!)

You guys our God is faithful! He created us with the beauty of being able to hope in every situation and circumstance. Imagine how much He loves us that He would bestow such a gift upon us. He never promised that our life’s journey would be free of troubles, trials, and tribulations, but He did promise to love, protect, and be with us every step along the way. (John 16:33 AMP- I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have perfect peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer, take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted! For I have overcome the world. I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.)

My greatest prayer for you today is that you would embrace the gift of hope that God has placed within your heart and entrust that hope within His care allowing Him to make the beauty that He has prepared for your life your reality. I can’t promise you that your life will be perfect, but I can promise you that hope in The Lord never fails or disappoints. (Hebrews 10:23 AMP- So let us seize and hold fast and retain without wavering the hope we cherish and confess and our acknowledgement of it, for He Who promised is reliable, sure, and faithful to His Word.)

Which Will You Rely On Most, Your Feelings Or GOD?

ASKS

(Exodus 4:10-12 NLT- Moses pleaded with The Lord, “O Lord, I’m not very good with words. I never have been, and I’m not now, even though You have spoken to me. I get tongue-tied, and my words get tangled.”. Then The Lord asked Moses, “Who makes a person’s mouth? Who decides whether people speak or do not speak, hear or do not hear, see or do not see? Is it not I, The Lord? Now go! I will be with you as you speak, and I will instruct you in what to say.”)

Today’s focal passage reminded me that whether we feel we’re able to do or accomplish something or not, if God says, “Go!” then we must trust Him and do so knowing that He will never send us on a journey where we’ll have to travel alone. He will always be with us illuminating our way.

I think many of us, like Moses have had times or been in situations where we’ve simply felt inadequate. The truth is sometimes our feelings will lead us astray. The enemy is very strategic. His plan of attack will always be where we’re most vulnerable and for most of us the perception that we have of ourselves and how we “feel” will always come into play. It’s vital that we know our worth and that we never let anyone or anything rob us of how valuable we are.

I just want to encourage you guys to trust God’s provision no matter how you feel. His voice will always guide you to greatness! Believe that He has equipped and gifted you with everything that you need to conqueror what ever it is that He’s calling you to do. Embrace your purpose because you are fearfully and wonderfully made. Own your gifts and illuminate those dreams that you’ve kept hidden in your heart. And know that whenever you feel inapt, that can actually be a good thing because it puts you in a position to seek God for help. You are mighty in The Lord!

(Jeremiah 17:7-8 NIV- Blessed is the one who trusts in The Lord, whose confidence is in Him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.)

Your value is infinite and you truly can do all things! Christ will always be your strength!

Set The World On Fire With Purpose

ASKS

(Isaiah 14:24 NIV- The Lord Almighty has sworn, “Surely, as I have planned, so it will be, and as I have purposed, so it will happen.)

When I read today’s focal verse I felt this indescribable joy begin to arise within my heart and I smiled because I was reminded that the purpose that God has for my life will stand firm and unwavered no matter what. It reminded me that what He has promised me shall be. I find it amazing that God has this empyreal purpose that He planned just for me and each day He whispers the truth of His promises to my heart making me more cognizant of who He is in my life and the greatness that He expects of me. He nurtures my dreams and the desires of my heart with His living water allowing them to blossom right before my eyes.

There is no one greater than our God. Everyday that He allows us to wake up is a day that we get the chance to choose to draw nearer to Him and live that day greater than the previous through His Presence. Every breath that we take has great purpose because every second that we’re alive is a sign from God that He treasures the purpose that He designed and created us to carry out.

If you’ve ever wondered why you’re still here, know that it’s because of the incredible plan that God predestined for your life. (Jeremiah 1:5 MSG- Before I shaped you in the womb, I knew all about you. Before you saw the light of day, I had holy plans for you.) Take a moment to conceptualize what that truly means. … God chose us, loved us, treasured us, and decided that He was going to bless us before He even gave us life. If you can’t think of anything else to praise Him for, praise Him for that alone because He’s worthy!

My purpose for today’s post is to remind you guys that you are loved, you are valuable, you are beautiful inside and out, and your purpose is vitally needed and exceptionally great! Embrace all that He has created and called you to be! Believe that you are all that God says you are! And trust that all that He has promised you is yours to keep because His promises and His purpose endure forever!
