Re-born to Walk in Victory

fullsizeoutput_cc2

Have you ever gotten into your car turned the key and nothing? No click, no sound, only silence. You realize you most likely have a dead battery. The solution is a new battery. In the meantime a jump start may bring the dead battery back to life.

Over the last several months my time with Jesus has not been the vibrant, exciting, can’t wait to meet with Him time it has been in seasons past. I have known for quite some time that I needed a jump start, something to propel me into new territory with Him.

Today I had the amazing opportunity to attend a small intimate gathering of women and learn some new and valuable ways to enter into some very sweet time with Him. I experienced Jesus on a new glory plane. As is His nature, he went above and beyond anything I can ever ask or imagine. He showed me wounds from my childhood that I didn’t realize were within me. He walked me through healing and reminded me of my identity and authority in Him.

He increased my freedom!

My prayer for you is that you would ask Jesus to meet you in new and unexpected ways and teach you to simply sit in His presence, listen for His voice and draw you ever closer through His word.

Shalom!

You Don’t Need to See to Believe

Well if this isn’t icing on the proverbial cake! I am slowly emerging from my season of restoration, like a caterpillar going through metamorphosis, after having spun its cocoon and waiting patiently, ( a virtue I am still acquiring), until that day. That perfect day God ordained and caused the caterpillar to slowly but steadily break through the cocoon it had earlier spun and reveal itself as a beautiful butterfly.

Many times I need sweet reminders like Luke 1:45. Seasons are but a blink of the eye for God, but for us they can seem extremely long and our faith and endurance are tested.

Fulfillment is God’s perfect completion. It is the end-phase, the final stage in the process. Our responsibility is simply to believe.

I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten…. Joel 2:25a

Shalom!

The Man in the Circle

Stand in a circle?! And pray?! That is exactly what Honi the Circle Maker did. He was an ancient Israelite scholar mentioned by Josephus in the book of “Jewish Antiquities.”

Honi drew a circle and stood in it and told God that he would not move until God provided the rain that had not come that winter. Honi prayed and God brought rain.

Rulers, scholars and religious types all thought Honi had a special relationship with God. Actually, what he had was prayer. He was so closely knit to God he knew the goodness of God’s character.

Honi wasn’t satisfied with just rain. Honi’s heart ached for the people of God. He not only desired the seasonal rain, he wanted God’s rain of favor, blessing and graciousness. Honi didn’t give up, he prayed consistent and persistent, big audacious prayers, that could only be answered by God. Then he waited in expectant anticipation for God’s answer.

Audaciously bold prayers our part of our inheritance in Jesus. You will never know unless you ask and when you ask let it come from a heart that has been steeped in the truth of God’s word and promises.

Boldly go where every man, woman and child ought to go…before the throne of God, drawing circles around your prayers.

Shalom!

But God

It didn’t take me long to embrace this season of restoration. In fact, I jumped and was caught in a bed of springtime flowers. “Here I am Lord, restore me!” Reality check. Restoration is a process.

The saying “Let go and let God” comes to mind. Hmm, letting go. Sometimes I think we hold on so tightly to the way we think things ought to be we actually lose sight of Who God is and what HE is doing! The current conversation I am having with God; “But God, I’m such a good helper!” “My child, I don’t require your help.” “But God” “My daughter there are not ‘buts’, just be.”

Be still and know that I am God.

Be still and know that I am.

Be still and know.

Be still.

Be.

Shalom!

What Are You Lacking?

What are some of the things you feel you are lacking? Maybe it is confidence, or compassion, perhaps it is knowledge or maybe it is basic needs. If you are a believer in Christ, you lack NOTHING. God’s word is filled with so many promises and you get to choose if you will spend time with him daily so He can reveal His promises to you.

Precious One, stay connected to The Vine.

Shalom!
